Meditation

MeditationHunching his shoulders against the downpour, Andrew watched people scurrying for cover.

He'd always been quite comfortable in the rain. It gave him a breather from his young charges before he snapped and turned them all into tiny Slayer action figures.

A man hurriedly hopped over puddles and offered to escort Andrew somewhere dry. Concern was written across his handsome features as he held an umbrella over them both.

Andrew smiled. Looking like a bedraggled puppy brought out the white knight in some people, particularly lovely young men who offered him coffee (and sometimes much more) to warm him up.

It is all very good, but I have tagged you for a meme and you have not done it yet!

Pushy little elder god, aren't you? I shall do it shortly.

Ooh, nice little twist at the end there. Andrew's certainly learned a few things!

Never underestimate the power of damp and pathetic when hunting cute boys.

Thanks. Thought I'd let the little guy have some time away from the evil little girls.

Andrew's not so dumb. ;-)

He just looks that way.

Yeah, well ... I'm not sure I look all that smart, either ...

That was really sweet. Mind you, what would happen if a nice young lady took pity on the bedraggled one? ;)

I thought it would be more likely that Andrew would get mothered by women, rather than hit upon. Which has its own advantages.

Ahh yes, that makes sense. :)

Lovely piece :-)

As for the case that a young woman takes pity - he could always start talking to himself ...

Just like everyone using a mobile phone with a hands-free earpiece. I still think they look insane.

LOL - I know what you mean. I still haven't gotten used to those.

Yay Andrew -- way to be sneaky. :-) (I would pay money to read a fic where he really does turn Slayers into collectible action figures and then threatens to sell them on eBay or something...)

A man hurriedly hopped over puddles and offered to escort Andrew somewhere dry, concern was written across his handsome features as he held an umbrella over them both. This is a run-on.

(and some times more) 'Sometimes' should be one word here.

Do not tempt me.

Thanks for the grammar catch.

Give me a challenge word other the tiny Slayer action figure bit and I'll see what I can do.

Stop teasing me with ginger snaps, you evil woman... Great. Now I'm drooling.
