this is what I wrote before I wrote the above.


“How the hell?” Julie said stopping the car and looking at her mother sitting in the passenger seat. “A left back there on Fourth Street shouldn’t have taken me to the water streets.”

Her mother gave her a disapproving look. They had to pick-up the package before midnight. Water cars splashed their wake at them. Julie turned on the dome light and looked at the map.

“Crap, I should’ve taken a right on Fourth. The map must’ve been upside down when I looked at it before. I guess there’s nothing left to do but turn around.”

“The water isn’t that deep; can’t you just go up to that Shell Station so I can use the phone?” Julie’s mother growled. “I need to be at the pick-up spot in eight minutes.”

“No mother I can’t, I didn’t bring the water car.” Julie snapped.

One response to “#MenageMonday Challenge – Week Five”

  1. I received an Honorable mention for this one.

    I got D. Ryan’s email late last night, but there was a critical detail missing. I emailed him first thing this morning, but since I still haven’t gotten a response, I’m just going to roll with what I’ve got to work with. Let’s just say it’s everyone’s lucky week, lol.
    Thank you to Judge D. Ryan and all you wonderful author-types who joined and made Week Five another rousing success!
