Oh no! This story doesn't have a prequel. Want to fill in the blanks and write one?

    lol I wonder if there are peanut butter trucks. I like it, it paints a neat picture :)

    I like how the radio ‘leaks’ Sinatra. That’s an awesome visual. :)

    Oh, this sounds like the beginning of one of those teen slasher movies, or maybe that’s just me.
    Quirky and intense. I like it.

    I liked it so much, I gave it a possible sequel.

    Thanks, all. There’s a story behind the first three lines — been dying to use them.

    Beautiful. “Painted sunset air” in particular is a fantastically compact and eloquent description.
