Once again, I only managed a mini and a 10-worder. Go to Raven's Nest to find out what the heck is going on.
Words to include: riverboat, procrastination, drank, demons, invisible, candle, enough, film stars, summer job, computer For the mini: general demeanor, surprisingly, masked man, reach, standards
He was a masked man of the old school, you know? His general demeanour was surprisingly threatening given he was only four feet ten. When he robbed you, you knew you were being robbed by a hoodlum with standards. Yes, sir, just because he could hardly reach the counter top didn’t mean you could mess with him. See this? He gave that to me when I was working security for First National. Damn near shot my kneecap off. I'm not complaining though, if it’d have been one of these young drugged-up punks like you get these days, they’d have been carrying me out of there in a pine box. Yep, standards.
So, after a few weeks' procrastination, Harold got himself a summer job at the Riverboat Inn. This came as a bit of a surprise to the rest of his fellow demons, as infernal folk generally did not do well in customer service jobs, preferring instead to make a living in the computer industry where their particular talent for tormenting mortals to distraction were richly rewarded (who do you think came up with the Microsoft paper-clip?) . Harold, however, knew that many famous film stars drank at the inn and he was an avid follower of Lolita LaChaise, rising young starlet and heroine of the cult movie Invisible Candle. Sure enough, in she came one night. Harold plastered on his friendliest smile.
"And what can I get for Madame tonight?" he asked.
"I'd give my very soul for a properly mixed vodka martini" she purred.
Harold's grin widened...
