Luna sat on the steps of the library. She had on a pretty black dress. She also had on red cowboy boots. They didn’t match at all. She’d come out for a break and lit up a smoke. Alex came out and saw her. He ripped it from her lips.

“Luna, what the hell are you doing?”

“Hey! Give that back!”

“Not a chance.”

“Don‘t do that, dammit! Why did you step on it! That was my last one.”

“Good! That’s disgusting. Why aren‘t you inside studying?”

“I needed a break. Is that okay?”

“Not really. Is there any particular reason you wore your fuck-me boots to the library today?”

“Oh, so you like them do you?”

“Don’t start with me.”

“You want to fuck me in these boots, don’t you?”

“Settle down.”

“Fine, but you started it.”

“Luna, what are you searching for in your bag?”

“What do you care?”

“Don’t get pissy with me.”

“There, I was looking for these!”


“Yes, these are called grapes, sir.”



“Did you finish your history paper?”


“Are you close to finishing it?”


“Did you catch up on your reading then?”


“Did you start on your…..  Luna what’s with the funny face?”

“I think I might be chewing on a grape stem.”

“Well, stop pulling faces and spit it out!”

“Yuck. That was gross.”

“I don’t know what to say.”


“No thanks.”

“They’re green.”



“Hey don’t throw grapes at me!”

“Why, does it hurt?”

“Hey knock it off.”


“Get your ass back inside and study, will you?”


“Not fine and sit there… fine and move it!”

“Fine! I‘m going. Sheesh.”

“Don’t forget your grapes.”

“I won’t”

“And tomorrow wear something more appropriate.”

“Why? What’s wrong with the way I look?”


“Fine, but I have something for you first…”

“The bird. That’s real mature Luna. Get inside!”

“Oh look, here’s another one!”

“Go! God dammit!”

“Fine, I’ll see you later.”

“Don’t you dare take a nap in there!”

“I won’t!”

“You better not.”

“Goodbye sir!”

“Wait!….. Hey Luna!….. Wait! Come back here!….. Luuuuuuna!……. Oh never mind. Silly girl. She forgot her grapes.”


  1. The bag...was it a green color? And the steps to the library...where there many? Was there more than one floor in the library? Was it summer? Was Alex in the shade and did he continue to wait for you and just why, exactly, was he waiting outdoors?
