Day 14, and the grand finale has arrived. A day late, but I spent extra time on this one. Something extra special to finish out the challenge 🙂 This is a scene from the final chapter of the novel. A balmy night in the equatorial city of Malawi in Indolasia, where the Ruby lift’s massive anchor platform floats a mile offshore. The laser charging beams still burn into the sky like bright red pillars, with the moonlight fractured over the sea. After a long and harrowing descent. Walter Marlow and Lily Fairpoole decide to catch a break for greasy noodles and brightly-colored drinks at their favorite restaurant. Lou is the local favorite for more than one reason. He certainly approves of the growing connection between these two, who happen to be some of his favorite regular patrons.
“Heh, Mr. Marlow, good to see you out with the pretty lady again. No more mopin’ with the kitty cat, yea? Good, good. How about a special to celebrate? On the house. Just for you and the beautiful Miss Fairpoole!”
