Got it?

[12:13pm]

…Waiting…

Tap tap tap…

Ros, I need you to confirm.

[12:13pm]

Do you think I run around all hours of
the day texting this highly guarded address
to just anyone? REPLY MORTAL.

[12:13pm]

ROSALYN!

[12:14pm]

Jesus jumpin jackrabbit, blondie. You type like 900wrds per second.

[12:14pm]

Delete the text when we’re done.
My people will wipe the cell tower records.
Secure the physical paper in safe, pref. locked, locale.

[12:14pm]

It’s a LETTER, not a commission for a hit. Chill out.
Writing it down now. Gimme 1 minute pls.

^-mere mortal here.

[12:15pm]

Ha. You’re way more fun via txt. Has anyone every told you that?

[12:15pm]

Done yet?

[12:16pm]

Did you *actually* just count out exactly 1 minute?

[12:21pm]

I’m a Virgo. We’re precise.

^-“mere” immortal Viking legend here (+ a few hundred other honorifics & titles)

You may already be familiar w/ a few of these after stalking my
Wikipedia page, creeper… 😉

[12:21pm]

Right. A Virgo.

[12:22pm]

I am! (I think.)

[12:22pm]

Sure.

[12:22pm]

Maybe.

[12:22pm]

Uh huh.

[12:23pm]

Well it would explain a lot.

[12:23pm]

I’ll keep that in mind.

[12:23pm]

That you didn’t question the rest shows your intelligence;
my prestige and renown are objectively, scientifically true.

[12:24pm]

Oh yes. Proven because they are listed on a free webpage open
to public, anonymous editing by tweens and trolls…

[12:24pm]

That is exceedingly unfair to trolls. They are a kind, easygoing people.

[12:24pm]

TICK TOCK, Dr.

Honestly, what ARE you doing right now that’s taking so long?

[12:25pm]

Txting with you, duh! Also dodging students…

[12:25pm]

If I told you that I am slowly bleeding to death in my own bed,
would you possibly move any faster?

[12:25pm]

Touché.

[12:25pm]

Please confirm that you will delete this text/
secure paper as directed above.

[12:26pm]

K.

[12:28pm]

That is NOT how we confirm *critical*instructions. 
Let me be absolutely clear: you ARE being tested. Failure to comply
in our security protocols will result in fine/punishment to the
fullest extent permissible by law.

[12:28pm]

ROGER THAT, Sheriff. Delete msg, store paper securely. Thy will be done
as in heaven and so on earth, etc. etc. etc. Happy?

[12:29pm]

THANK. YOU.

And yes – you should. 🙂

[12:30pm]

?

[12:31pm]

“Roger” that. He needs it.

[12:31pm]

Ugh. Pervert.

[12:31pm]

Most assuredly 😉

[12:31pm]

As if I needed convincing. BTW you have an exceptional talent for
making a woman feel cheap. I mean it. **OUTSTANDING** Just putting
it out there, since you know, we’re “friends” and all.

[12:32pm]

Wasn’t aware it was among my strong suits. Shall we add it to my
official register of titles?

[12:32pm]

High lord of Jackassery?

Thane of Misogyny?

Prince of Patriarchal Darkness?

[12:33pm]

😥

Except…No, wait. I actually kind of like the last one.

😀

[12:33pm]

Srsly with the emoticons!? What are you, a 12 yr old girl?

[12:33pm]

Let me check.

[12:34pm]

Lol. Taking a while, I see…Thought you were ‘dying’ to get off the line w me.

[12:37pm]

Helloooo? Fall asleep on me buddy? Or did the ego take a hit? (Methinks the
latter is more plausible…)

[12:38pm]

Oh Mr. Norrrrrrthman…

[12:41pm]

Sorry. Litetight shutters xtra slow today. Company sucks.

Dump their stocks asap, btw, we’re going to back Nitegaard’s
new product in the fall. They’ve partnered with Persol.
Genius work, obvsly…G & I funded the R&D.

[12:42pm]

Eric…SIGH.

The stock market and its assoc. systems of capital perpetuate the mystification
of real human values which alienates us from our humanity. I choose to invest my
life and my craftwork in ethical and sustainable practices, not the predatory
behavior of capitalists.

[12:42pm]

Thx for the refresher course in Marx. Noble ideas from a good man. I just hope it doesn’t disappoint you to learn that I am *literally* why good ‘ole Karl likened capitalism to vampirism. And before you judge – I was giving him free room and board in London so he could write.

[12:42pm]

FACEPALM. If that is even true, you are officially a life ruiner. But, uh…why are you leaving your cubby or whatever?

[12:42pm]

Limited lighting in the bedrm. Still can’t see if I’m a 12yo girl. 1sec.

[12:42pm]

  1. HA. GROW UP.

[12:42pm]

Growing as we speak, Madame Doctor.

[12:42pm]

OMFG. Don’t you even DARE.

[12:43pm]

Dare what? I like dares… XD

[12:43pm]

! $%&*! I swear to whatever Norse god you fear most that I’ll block your number
and ditch my phone if you send me an explicit photo. End of discussion. NOT acceptable.

Capiche?

[12:43pm]

Rogering that.

[12:43pm]

GO TO SLEEP NORTHMAN.

[12:44pm]

😛 Your wish is my command, milady.

Before I sign out, you should b aware that this hour long convo just cost me
a lot of blood. You owe me half a six-pack of Royalty Blended.

O neg, please.

[12:45pm]

I’ll consider your request, Sheriff.

[12:45pm]

Well played. But I thought I was Prince?

[12:45pm]

Your new title remains to be seen.

[12:45pm]

I can work with that. Good day, Rosalyn fair. Talk soon.

[12:46pm]

Sleep tight, big baddie. Don’t let the bedbugs bite.

[12:46pm]

I’m the only thing that bites around here. Night, Doc.

}:F

[12:46pm]


A/N: Soooo…My readers are AMAZING, FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL people! I was awash in lovely reviews and it got me so excited I just *had* to send you a little something to share my thanks and appreciation while I work on a full blown chapter. This is obviously quite experimental. What do you think? Leave a little review…the box is right down there – – – V.

    OMFG, he would text someone like this! I am still cackling over here. This story is great. Has very intelligent plot and characters [read: author] and delicious repartee. Loving it! Can’t wait to see Pam and Ros have their inevitable verbal volley.
