NaNoWriMo 2009, Day 25: The End Comes Today
I hope it’s not an omen for my typing skills for the day that the title above was briefly "The End Comes Toady." Also not an omen for the end, because boy is that not the resolution I’m going for.
Had to go to bed last night with one of the heroes hurtled headlong into the black moment and the other one close behind. Just couldn’t do it. I figured I’d end up back here as soon as my brain could get me rested enough to function again, and so it is. So as soon as I finish this cup of tea and switch to coffee, on we go.
At this particular moment, the resurrected casino is in full swing, with mobsters and high rollers and showgirls (and boys!) dancing in the aisles and flash mobs appearing to do disco between the tables at regular intervals. The slot machines are gone and the poker tables are in the forefront, and people are lined up around the block because Someone Very Special is performing in a few hours. Of course, the one hero just left because he thinks the party is over for him, that he has to give up the other hero.
WE KNOW IT’S NOT TRUE. But it’s still a fantastic ride to worry that maybe, just maybe it isn’t. Off to go finish it.
