Picture Perfect



“Yes, sir?”

“Where’s your new camera, the one I just bought for you?”

“Up in my room.”

“Did you take pictures with it today?”


“Why not?”

“Um well, it kind of got lead poisoning.”

“Lead poisoning?”

“Yup. Wasn‘t my fault though.”

“Lead poisoning?”


“Asa shot up you’re brand new camera, didn’t he.”

“Yes, but it wasn’t my fault. Promise! It was all just a big misunderstanding.”



“Alright then Luna, let’s hear it… your side of the story.”

“Well, I was trying to take pictures of the sunset but Asa thought I was taking pictures of him through his window and he never let me explain. That’s all.”



“I heard what happened and I know what room you were in… it faces east.”

“Oh. Yeah well, see I realized that after everything was all set up, I felt kind of stupid, really.”

“I’m not buying your excuse.”

“Please reconsider?”

“What exactly happened after Asa shot up your camera?”

“Jordon escorted me home.”


“That’s how I remember it.”

“Jordon’s not very happy with you.”

“I didn’t mean to hit him that hard, tell him I’m sorry please.”

“Tell him yourself the next time you see him.”


“Luna, why the fuck did you think it would be a good idea to spy on Asa… of all fucking people!”

“Well, because I’m pretty sure he spies on me!”

“That’s his fucking job!”

“Well, I don’t like it and I just wanted to see if I could do it back.”

“Then tell me you’ve learned that the answer is no, you cannot!”

“Fine. I guess the answer is no, I cannot.”


“Cool! Can I have a new camera then?”

“Sure you can, princess.”


“As soon as you convince Asa to buy you one.”

“Hey! That’s not fair!”

“That’s very fair since Asa’s the reason your camera is no longer ‘with us’ once again. That‘s two fucking cameras, Luna. Convince him you’ve learned where not to point one.”

“He’ll never buy me a new camera.”


“Fine. Then maybe I should just steal his.”

“Thinking out loud again?”

“I’m joking, of course. I‘d never steal anything of Asa‘s.”

“I don’t like the way you antagonize him.”

“I don’t mean to.”

“I think you do. I think you do it on purpose and I think you two like to play fucked up little games when you think I’m not looking.”

“…course not.”

“Asa does have a nice camera Luna, I’ll give you that. The pictures are incredible, and you… you’re very photogenic my dear, near picture perfect. Now, without another word, do yourself a favor and get the fuck out of my face.”
