The beginning of a new story.

I put melodramatic ellipses at the end because when I post an excerpt here, some people think it's the whole story, and they say, "I kind of liked that...but it was so abrupt. I think it needs...more."

(Actually, I put "..." when it should technically be the slightly less melodramatic "...." but I don't feel like going back and changing the .jpg now.)

Click, then enlarge to read.

"The air is dank is Louisiana, like being inside a bear's mouth."

I like that.

It's something I often think, when it's hot.

"Fuck, this is like being inside [some animal's] mouth."

I've probably used it in a story before...I should be careful.
