A = Adventure, Alven and Amelia

A

I’ve no idea what I’m doing for CampNaNo this year (aside from rambling aimlessly while my two cabin-mates make clear progress towards their goals)! And again, going for the Blogging from A-to-Z challenge, while weaving in the One-Minute Writer challenge. So here’s tonight’s result, from “Call Me, AL” –

 

“What is the craziest thing you ever did on the day for fools,” Alven asked. “Hijack a car? Go on a blind date? Take an impossible dive?”

Amelia smiled. “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

He adjusted his glasses. “We’re still dating; so there’s a fair chance I might.”

She leaned forward, her smile growing wider for a moment. “Care to make a bet? Winner decides next destination?”

“Adventurous or foolish?”

“Both.” She paused. “I gave my boss a letter of resignation. On her birthday. Five minutes before leaving work.”

Alven reached for the wine. “Which job was this? Obviously the one you hated, right?”

Amelia shook her head. “The one I loved, the one I earned and thoroughly enjoyed.”

“And you resigned?”

She shook her head again. “I said I gave my boss a letter of resignation. The key was in the closing: “April Fools! Have a terrific birthday.””

“And you lived to tell the tale.” Alven sighed. “You win. What are we doing tomorrow?”

“See how well you survive shopping, for starters.” With that, Amelia found the most expensive dessert to order and enjoy, with a few servings ordered to go.
