Trying To Get My Bearings (4/22)

An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o


I take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and turn around. I am completely unprepared.

She stands there, wrapped in a bath towel that, with her 5'-nothing frame, covers her armpits to knees. Her hair is wrapped in another towel. She smiles, and I quickly turn my back to her.

"Could you please get dressed." I try to sound confident. I'm certain I failed.

"I think you should, too, grumpy" she says, giggling. I realize I'm in my boxers. She starts laughing as I dive back under the blankets. Even frazzled as I am, it's like music. "I'll go make breakfast."

With everything going on, all I can think is, She cooks, too?

What the hell is wrong with me? I'm in a strange country, with no memory of how I got here, sharing a hotel room with the physical embodiment of a fictional video game character. And I'm wondering about her culinary skills?

I shower (quickly, since I'm not sure if she's the type to walk in), and dress. I'm in such a daze, I don't even realize I don't own any clothes this nice.

What's next?

Inspired by (sequel to):

I wake up to my phone ringing. My first thought: Oh, hell! Am I late for work? Again?

The next so…
