Teaser Tuesday

The next time one of those brats bumps into me—they’re spinning around, making themselves dizzy, while their mammoth moms hoot and guffaw and crack their bubble gum—I bump him back, hard. He lands on his butt and stares up with saucer eyes. My face must horrify him. I’m sure he’ll have nightmares.

I fake a concerned smile. “Oops.”

“Dammit it, Junior! Git up off-a that floor.” One of the moms reaches down to yank him up, dropping a pile of plus-sized sweaters in the process. She shakes him roughly. “Behave yourself!”

Now I feel bad about shoving the poor kid. What kind of a mother treats her child that way? With a real smile this time, I mouth at the boy: “Sorry about that.”

Unimpressed, Junior sticks out his tongue.

Paranormal sequel. Talk about putting the cart before the horse.
