Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

Today’s Story Excerpt: (Left Side)
August 20th: Kiri’s Thoughts

 

There was something about her manner. Very calm, very sweet, very kind. As though something inside of me just wanted to mother her. I guess that’s why after every Saturday night, whenever I had any pastries left over, instead of throwing them away, I’d put one aside and offer it to her the next morning. I told her, I needed someone to provide a review for my work, and with that explanation, she seemed okay accepting something for free, so to speak, in exchange for a written review. I liked giving her something to do. Watching her gaze thoughtfully out the window at the world walking by as she ate and found just the right words to put down on paper that she’d turn into me before she left.

                                                                           Blueberry Scone
                                                     Tastes like a woodland’s fairy treat.
                                        Bursts of sweet tartness, like that of the evening sky.
                                         Sprinkled with sugary stars that melt in your mouth.

I would take what she’d written, paste it onto a small sign that I would place next to the pastry. I swear, she increased my sales and more than paid for what I gave her.
