Sneak Preview: Fates 42
Since I don't really have any huge surprises coming in the next chapter like I have for the past three, I'm going to post a couple of spoilers for 42 as I write it. Exciting, right? Here's the first one, just a little taste for all of you. As you can see in the picture, there's a friendly face returning to Fates. Time to face relationship fire, though...
“The gig’s in a couple of weeks, man, you should come. I can get you in on the guest list.” Morgan waggled his eyebrows. “You can bring your hot secretary.”
“You mean my girlfriend?” Chuck asked, and had the pleasure of seeing Morgan’s jaw drop. “And it’s office manager, by the way.”
“Wait a second, you’re doing your secretary? Isn’t that a little cliché?”
“One, it’s office manager,” Chuck said through his teeth. “Two, don’t talk about her that way, and three, I don’t think it’s cliché.”
Morgan was quiet for a moment as they finished walking out to Chuck’s car. “I guess it wouldn’t be cliché, not when she looks like—hey! Ow! What’s with the hitting?”
Another one of Sarah’s mannerisms he’d picked up, Chuck figured, but he still glared at his friend. It hadn’t been a hard punch to the shoulder, to be fair.
“Oh, right,” Morgan said. “I guess that makes sense. Well, either way, congratulations. But don’t hit me again. You know how easily I bruise, man.”
“I know, Morgan. I know. I’m sorry. It won’t happen again,” Chuck said, and climbed into the driver’s seat.
Poor Morgan. He hit a nerve!
