D is for Debt

Now let's drabble on with the letter D!


Debt

“You owe me a debt,” Lana said with a smirk, her arms crossed in front of her chest.  “I don’t chase away bullies for free.”

Elliot made a futile attempt to straighten his damaged glasses, more to make it look like he wasn’t staring at her.  Lana’s knee-high black leather boots made her look like a warrior goddess.  Bullies had always been a reality for him, and he couldn’t figure out why someone like her would help him.

“What do you want?” he asked hesitantly.

The smirk turned to a smile.  “Just a kiss, because I think you’re cute.”

  5. A kiss? How old are these kids (I ask because I have sixth grade twins, and I am dreading their foray into kissing or anything else in this direction.)

    Best regards,
    Elizabeth

  6. nice, are they kids or adults, would this be a sweet chaste kiss, or one that involved fangs and some blood letting?

  13. Love this! So fun. Great job telling a story in very few words. Keeping it short is such a challenge for me, and you've done so well with this. It makes me curious to learn more about Lana.
