Leaving Messages

by Indra Leigh


"Vin, it's Chris."

"How ya' doin'?"

"Good and you?"

"Pretty well."

"What are your plans for..."

"Leave a message after the beep."


"Tanner. Change the damn answering machine message."

"Make me Larabee." Beep!

"If you don't want me to kill the machine, then you will."

"No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!" Beep!


Leaning his tall frame against the door Vin gave an ultimatum to Chris. "I'm not changing my message again. Live with it, Cowboy."

"What!?" Beep!

"That I can live with, direct and to the point. So you coming over to see the game on Sunday?"
