Today’s number is 1965, chosen by a cereal bar.
If you want to select the next extract, send me a random number between 1 and 3,000, which is the line I will go to in the manuscript.
Empowered: Sonya, Random Spoiler 4
“You’re quite incredible, and I…”
Graham looked at her with a warm semi-smile.
“You know, on the first day, I thought your example was a bit of fiction, unrealistic and off-the-wall, to get us thinking.”
“Is that why you were so obnoxious?”
“Sorry. Believe me, when I realised it was real… I really am sorry. When I discussed this with my shrink, he helped me see that I needed a different strategy if I wanted you to talk to me.”
“So is that what I am to you? A strategy?”
(“Communication. Say thank you but no thank you. Now!”)
“No, I didn’t mean that at all. I just learned that I had to behave differently than normal.”
(“Get up and go.”)
“So this isn’t the real you?”
“Of course it is. It’s just that…”
Sonya rose, finally, to walk out of the café and out of his life, head held high.
“Sonya, please. Give me a chance. I’m not good with words. Let me show you the real me. Please.”
She looked at Graham for so long, she almost felt dizzy again, not because she was panicking this time, but because he was so appealing, looking at her with expectant puppy eyes.
“Ok. Friday. Let me know where and when to meet you.”
