#131. Outlook Chapter 5. My Lunch with Lynne

Ch 5.17 * #131 * Sep. 25, 2022
  1. *Lynne and Chloe, floating inside the portal.* Lynne: "Do we really have to go back?" Chloe: "I wish we could stay, but there's no food, no books, no Internet, no nothing." "And it's easy to get stuck in here."
  2. Lynne: "You come here often?" Chloe: "More often than Zia knows about. There's a reason I have a steel cable anchored in the cupboard."
  3. Lynne (holding her feet): "sigh. I'm going to miss this." Chloe: "So come by on the weekends. You don't have to be stuck with a tail any more often than I do."
  4. Chloe: "You can't stay in here forever, but a half hour will do wonders for your outlook on life."
  5. Lynne: "I really would trade tails with you, if I could. I don't need to be human to go hiking." "Just once I'd like to breathe mountain air on my own terms again."
  6. Chloe: "If you want the horse, feel free to steal it on the way out." Lynne: "You really hate it, don't you?"
  7. Chloe: "I read history books and essays on wheat growing up, Lynne, not fantasy novels." "I just want my old life back." "I want to ride the bus, do the bookkeeping at the museum, read about 14th century French masonry, balance my checkbook, and go to bed."
  8. Lynne: "Geez, you really were the most boring sister I could've had." Chloe (wryly): "I could leave you in here, you know."
Characters: Chloe, Lynne

Chloe, stealing a horse is a major felony in most jurisdictions; you really shouldn't encourage it.
