If Once Were Enough – Part Twenty-One

Part XXI:

I may have been a bit agitated by Alan at first, but his cloying personality was actually making me feel more comfortable in some strange way. To imagine a purpose so bold as he claimed was most likely no less than a good sales pitch and something that I knew better than to look past. I thought about how to respond, looking towards Lucy for some inspiration. She could tell I needed some assistance and took hold of the conversation.

“I suppose that is all well and good,” Lucy commanded, “but how about you hop off your soapbox and tell us how we fit into this elaborate plan of yours.”
