Guava #22

Author: Regret

Story: Radial: Unravel
Challenge: Guava #22 - Say Cheese
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Milos realises there's always someone destined to catch that embarrassing moment - and it's always the last person you want to see.
Notes: This is right at the end of what I've been writing but I'm not ready to post any of that yet! Argh. First Person Present like Simon's story in Radial, from a slightly different perspective. (You may remember Alex from "You Don't Know What You're Missing".)

“Kick, punch.”
I’m trying, but I’ve been trying for two hours and I’m knackered! I want a break!
“Kick, kick— Come on, London. No slacking.”
Because with all this sweat I really look like I’m slacking, right? My feet are sore, I’m sore, and I’m not made to bend like this. Why am I doing this?
“Kick! Higher!
I’m trying! And— fuck! Me and the floor get to know each other much better.
There’s a shout of laughter behind me. Sounds weird: loud and empty. Alex, and his smartphone’s pointing right at me.
That’s going on the internet, isn’t it?

LOL! Aww! He could always kick Alex's ass, get the smartphone and delete the footage... though, I guess that's assuming he gets off the floor in time ;) Nicely done :D

Haha, I don't think he's ever outright fought Alex but I can't imagine it'd go well... There might also be rules about battering co-workers - although if there are, I'm sure they'd be waived in this case since Alex is quite irritating. :3

Hah, that's definitely going on the internet. Though how fast could Alex do it before Milos gets his hands on him? Really funny :)

Alex is pretty speedy with his thumbs... I'm sure Milos can get his revenge in some other way though. It is a dish best served cold...

Ooooh. Now you've inspired me, I'm going to have to think about this. *g*
