Here it is a 69F day in the beginning of January, winds howling, I’m confused. But Friday Fictioneers goes on, with much thanks to Rochelle!
A Room with a View
Mrs. Hyde-Smith: “My view shows camper vans.”
She reminds me of Eric Idle in drag. I wait, expecting more information.
She raises an eyebrow. As punctuation?
“And your point, ma’am?”
Frederick’s throat clears behind me.
“I asked for a room with a view.”
“You’ve got camper vans,” I say. “How lovely!”
Both of her eyebrows raise. “It’s nothing of the sort.”
Frederick jostles me aside to work the computer. “We’ll remedy this.”
I smile, wondering how he’s going to “remedy this” in a full seaside hotel.
He says at last, smiling vaguely, “Camper vans are lovely this time of year.”
