Weird people live in Adelaide - Part Three...

This is part of a continuing saga of love, belief and betrayal in Adelaide. Or not.


Despite it still being morning, the day has been long. She sits on the bus, staring out the window. The colours rush by, and she doesn't bother to make sense of them, turn them into shop fronts or flora. Her stomach growls persistently for breakfast, or brunch, or lunch - anything involving food. Her mouth stretches into a wide yawn.

It is then that the man barely noticed - standing by the bus door - leans in towards her.

"Excuse me," he slurs, looking her straight in the eye. "Are you a Catholic?"

Mid-yawn, she shakes her head. He does the same as the bus stops and he steps off. As he departs, the girl's eyes widen before crinkling into a smile. Weird people live in Adelaide.


I kid you not, these are defining moments in my life. There are so many questions raised. Why me? There was another woman sitting next to me, but he looked only into my eyes, waited only for my answer, before shuffling off disappointed. Yes, on the second occasion, he went to find someone else, but the question remains - why me? Is this some obscure message I should convert to Catholicism? Do I remind him of a kindly Catholic girl he once knew? Is he a serial killer with a rather direct method for picking victims? I just don't know.

I'm so tempted to write the story from his perspective.

I wuz just goin' 'ome n' I saw 'er again, big n' buxom like a juggernaut. I 'ad to make sure she wuz sure she weren't the one for me. "Excuse me," I said, clear as day. "Are you a Catholic?"

Memorme - Memoryou

I just spent a while organising my memories so that they actually make some sense. I still have quite a bit to do, but at least it's easier to access things. I also went and searched down the majority of the fiction I've posted elsewhere for challenges.

As it is, it appears I have written more individual pieces for due South, but the word count is far less than the accumulative word count of something like my writing for Life on Mars. Not all of my Harry Potter fiction is up on LJ - it's posted at CoS, but I am assuming the Harry Potter fiction holds the the title of most individual pieces and collective word count. Life on Mars is sure to take over soon enough, though.
