For some reason, I am not sure why, this is the second week I have done a Fictioneers story with a girl’s name as the title. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in the middle of making a move. Next week’s Fictioneers story will be done from Melbourne, Australia!
by Miles H. Rost
She walked up to the DJ booth that I was sitting at, and plunked a sack of lollipops next to the control board. She looked at me with those blue eyes, framed by aureolin-tinged hair, and a sly smile.
“I figured you could use these.”
I looked up at her, one eyebrow arched, giving her a querious look that could only be reserved for certain people. I looked at the flat candies on a stick and popped one in my mouth.
“Thanks, Val! You’re the best cousin around!” I beamed back with a cheesy smile
She furrowed her eyebrows at me, and stomped away, her attempt at flustering me failing miserably.

So happy you finally get to make it to Australia! I also like the word aureolin, had to look it up.
Cousins, eh! Try not to have them. But I have to say I don’t get the story. Do lollipops mean anything?
Nice writing! Lollipops make everything right. I haven’t heard that song in years. I love his windblown hair. 🙂
The best revenge is to stay cool and not react. You illustrated that here to perfection!
Great interaction between the two characters, and your command of words is enviable.
