5th sentence, 74th page: “And this” – I waved my hand at her image, this time in jeans and a KISS T-shirt – “is this also for my benefit?
Matt’s childhood friend, Ashley, has been stopping by a lot lately. That might seem pretty normal, but Ashley died years ago and now she’s Death.
And tonight she wants waffles and fries.
This story was cute, funny and really fun. Even though there was a death. But the peppy Harbringer of Death made it fun and adorable. Her friendship with Matt was also sweet, albeit in a slightly creepy kind of way. But it worked.
Mostly this story makes me feel a little hungry – it mostly takes place in a dinner and there are waffles. Which I haven’t had in a while… which I really feel like… anyone else got a waffle craving at the moment? Maybe with a side of death?
