Mary convinced me to take part in a short writing prompt. I completely misunderstood the rules, the manner in which the item was to be posted, and the very nature of the exercise itself. So… here it is.
Redacted: I’ve started shopping this one around. For it to be admissible it had to come off line. Thanks to everyone who read and enjoyed it, I hope to re-post it soon in the form of a link to an external publisher.
