Hello Frank Doyle darling! Sorry to bother, as I know how much you hate it, but I would very much like to know. Could you tell me of when you first meet your dear Sadie? I brought a nice bottle of Gin! A few in fact! To keep you well lubricated and your mouth from getting dry as you tell your lovely story. So please feel free to leave absolutely nothing out ^_~ ♪(*^^)o∀*∀o(^^*)♪ *clink*

Stop right there!
You had me at gin——
multiple bottles, you say?
…. Perhaps we can manage a brief
conversation if you pour me a glass.
——Come now, three fingers, don’t be a miser.
That’s a fellow. Glug—
Now— on to my dear Sadie.
We first crossed paths in the wonderful
profession that is considered conning.
Poor Sadie was up to her delicate, pearl-draped neck
with this fellow Bozo Birdbath or some other equally
alliterative and ridiculous sounding name I can’t possibly
be bothered to remember properly in any expanse of time.
Top me off? Hm— no, the liquor.
Yes, thank you.
—Bonobo was running a scam, one that’s
popular in the occult factions of scams.
Yes, as it turned out?
—Less fake than he initially planned.
I don’t quite remember what purpose I severed
before that, but none of that mattered as the
cheese knife was flung at my head via unseen entity.
Things like that change your perspective, you see.
And Sadie sure changed mine.
All these books and picture films
and stories—— They talk about
love at first sight, the hearts in
your eyes, those silly little tha-
thumps that beat against your
chest with precision, screaming
of love and you know you need
to delicate every waking moment
to this one person.
— What they don’t tell you is that it lasts.
They say love everlasting because those tha-thumps persist,
the heart eyes don’t fade.
The desire to fulfill every whim lingers. It’s not touch and go.
The best thing to ever happen to me was her.
——normally, I say this in a dry demeanor
while closing the door in your face, and
it may be the three bottles of gin that I
polished off while simultaneously speaking.
Thank you for disturbing me.
And bringing gin. Terribly kind.
