Night Time Wander

Postby Lucy Jayne » Sat Oct 18, 2014 4:17 pm

He gently prises the curtains apart hopeful that the sun is rising. Stars piercing through blackness are the only things that greet him. Thirst draws him to the top of the stairs. He hesitates.

That bloody umbrella, the shape of it too human like.

Thirst quenched he pauses at the bottom of the stairs. He knows it’s an umbrella but it scares the crap out of him each time he wanders at night.

Unwelcome hands grab his arms. His scream stifled as he is pulled backwards into a large cupboard.

“Please don’t tell mum I stayed out almost all night.”

This one's got me flummoxed. I'm confused... "Thirst draws him to the top of the stairs." ??? :roll:

my penny didn't drop :(
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

I'm guessing he goes downstairs to the kitchen for a drink of water.

You wrote that line in Geordie, just so I could keep up, didn't you? :lol:

So do I have this right... Dad gets up in the wee small hours for a glass of water, and gets ambushed by teenage son who has spent all night out on the town?
The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head.

Now that you mention it, it makes a lot more sense in Geordie. :lol:

If our 'Merican weirdos need that explained, SpareInch, I reckon you're best placed to do so, given your Tynesdale roots an' all, like. Way ay!
