#A2Z Challenge: R for Romeo

During 2018’s A-Z Challenge, we wrote the first draft of “The November Deadline” and to celebrate that this is now (finally) out with beta readers, we’ll be producing a daily piece of micro-fiction linked to it – some prequel, some containing a detail not included in the story, some snippets from sequels currently being written.


“Calm yerself down…”

“But he grabbed me!”

“Don’t you worry m’lass, I’ll be putting him straight on that. Ain’t no call to try ‘n kill him though.”

“But…”

“Silly lad’s betwaddled with romantic thoughts is all.”

“Yes but…”

“No doubt them other kiddies been geeing him on. I’ll be having a word with them ‘n all. No way to behave is that.”

Isaac seemed to have a way with Juliet. Sometimes she found his slow manner of speech frustrating, but at times like these, it did the trick cooling that hot temperature of hers.

“Now, you get on with stripping that weapon down while I straps up ‘is arm.”

    1. Isaac is great, isn’t he? The plan is for he and Juliet to work together more in the future, although their relationship will be completely platonic.
