For June, I’m pulling from my horror/paranormal universe stories. This week, it’s from a still untitled story about Sara from “Tim and Sara” and Alec from “The Kindness of Strangers.” It takes place before either of those stories.
In this scene, Sara is talking to her twin brother Levi, who kind of takes care of her, about her new job.
“Work is going great,” Sara gushed.
“Great for you, or great for a normal person?”
Sara ignored me and continued, “The best thing is that I met a guy and we’re going to have a baby.”
My fork clattered onto my plate; I was used to the crazy stuff she said, but this was out there, even for her. “A baby?”
“That’s the only logical thing when you love someone, and I am nothing if not logical.”
“It’s not my fault you don’t understand logic, Levi.”
