This is for KC who 1) begged me to put a new story on the website and 2) threatened me to add her to the Mac/Ferrymen Inc universe.
Her prompt was 'imagine meeting your ex in the middle of the woods while they are at the edge of a cliff'. (Not apologizing for the direction this took, KC, bc, like most unknown woodland paths, we don't always know where they will take us)
If this feels like an unfinished snippet, I won't take offense. The M/FI world is growing more and more complex and many of the shorts I'm writing for it are simply introductions to characters and ideas. When/If I choose to bring all of this together, these small stories will be immensely helpful to avoid too much world-building.
My lofty dreams of being a famous & brilliant writer were literally smacked out of my head. Now I plan to fill the void with copious amounts of subpar writing!
