I’m taking a badly-needed technology break! To keep you entertained without my daily nonsense, I’m posting the complete stories of Jane Storegoer, a character who sprang to being during the #AtoZChallenge in 2016. During my break, I’ll post the installments daily. Can’t wait? Catch the rest of the posts here. They start from the bottom. Hope you enjoy!
Looking over the right angle of her shoulder, Iris used an asparagus spear to prop open the flap.
“Go go go,” she said, watching as the Grand Fermenter finally glopped enough of himself back together to get back on his bottom tofu square.
She sent Barry skittering, cone first, through the rectangular opening, ice cream scraping off top and bottom.
“Hey! Easy,” said Barry as it disappeared through the flap.
“Now you,” Iris told Jane as the Grand Fermenter and the other Tofurati lurched toward them like tofu zombies, leaving wet crumbs in their wake.
Jane eyed the opening and then Iris, whose pimentos were looking a lot less menacing. “What about you?”
“Don’t worry about me,” she said. “I’ll be fine. You may not be.”
Jane dropped onto her front side, pushing herself through the slot. Halfway through, she stopped. “Thanks,” she said, as the Fermenter closed in on Iris. “Watch out!”
“Don’t mention it,” said Iris, and keeping those pimentos exactly where they were, she slammed a soggy elbow into the area on the Grand Fermenter that is commonly a nose.
Slithering through, and now adding some melted ice cream to her coating of stickiness, Jane pushed herself out of the box and into the light beyond.
It took a moment for her eyes to adjust, and when they did, she gasped.
