Hot Pursuit — Page 3



*Mike runs along the pavement, a determined look on his face.*
Mike: It’s only another couple of blocks away.. I’m making good time..

*Mike sprints past Lucy, who looks surprised.*

*Lucy turns around, confused.*
Lucy: ?

Lucy: Mike?
*Mike freezes.*

*Both look annoyed.*
Lucy: Where are you running to?
Mike: Bus stop.
Lucy: Why?
Mike: I’m going to Maraschino.
Lucy: Why?
Mike: Umm..

Mike: I’m in a hurry, okay? No time to talk!
*Mike walks away, surprising Lucy.*
Lucy: Hey, wait!

*Lucy puts her hands on her hips and looks on, scowling.*

*Mike stands alone at a bus stop, looking nervous. After a moment, Lucy joins, to his surprise.*

*Mike flinches and begins to sweat.*
Mike: What are you doing here?!
*Lucy crosses her arms.*
Lucy: I’m not letting you blow me off! I’m coming, too!
Mike: But..
Lucy: Don’t try to stop me!

*Mike and Lucy begin arguing.*
Mike: Why the hell do you wanna bother me?!
Lucy: You always do the same thing!
Mike: No, I don’t!!
Lucy: Liar!!

*The bus arrives.*
Mike: I really am not in the mood for this!
Lucy: Well, too bad!

*The bus leaves. Mike sits aboard and slumps against the window, looking irritated. Lucy sits across the aisle from him and kicks her feet up in the air in frustration.*

*Mike glares at Lucy.*
Mike (thinking): She’s so damn stubborn..

*He crosses his arms and closes his eyes.*
Mike (thinking): Sandy was always so much kinder..

*The bus drives on.*

Author commentary

Veronica: Hi, Lucy! You showed up just in time for the UPCOMING ANGST. She was just heading over to his house.. oblivious of what’s to come..

I like how Mike is cranky about Lucy being so stubborn. Meanwhile I’m like “aww, she’s so cute!”, Paulo would be feeling the same, honestly.

Mike, you’re smart and all, but you really need to learn how to sort out emotions…
