Denver Cereal -- Chapter 700 (part one)

Return to normal?

“Now what should I do?” Delphie asked as she looked up from the computer.

“Write an update,” Jacob said.

“About what?” Delphie asked.

“About us,” Jacob said, his voice rising in frustration. “You always do this!”

“I always do what?” Delphie asked with a mischievous grin.

Jacob glared at her. Delphie grinned back. If she’d been standing, she would have annoyed him by twirling back and forth. Jacob gave a soft chuckle.

“Do you want to do this thing?” Jacob asked. “You’re not the only psychic in the family. If you feel like you’re too tired. . .”

Delphie burst out laughing. She pointed at him, and he laughed. Jacob leaned over and kissed her cheek.

“Take your time,” Jacob said. “We’ll go through it together when you’re done.”

Jacob started out of Delphie’s apartment. He stopped at the door.

“Do you know how to type?” Jacob asked.

“I’ve been typing since I was a young child,” Delphie said, indignantly.

Jacob smirked at her and left the apartment.

Now seething, Delphie stared at the door he’d disappeared behind for a long moment. The apparition of her best friend appeared.

“He’s trying to encourage you,” Celia said.

Delphie sniffed with anger, which caused Celia to laugh.

“Why are you struggling here?” Celia asked.

“I don’t know what people want to hear,” Delphie said. “I’ve never written anything. I mean, do people want to hear about the movement of the planets? The Tarot? Or. . .?”

Heaving a sigh, Delphie collapsed into herself.

“They want to know about the people you spend your life with,” Celia said. “You’re at the heart of everything that happens here. Tell the people about what’s going on.”

“You think so?” Delphie asked.

“I do,” Celia said.

“But that’s easy,” Delphie said.

“It’s all easy for you,” Celia said.

Delphie thought for a long moment before nodding.

“You’re right,” Delphie said. “I can do this.”

“Of course, you can,” Celia said.

Delphie smiled at her best friend and settled into the chair. She looked at the computer that Jacob had set up.

“Now, what do people want to hear about?” Delphie asked. “Katy and Paddie? Jill? The girlfriends? Tanesha was in the middle of. . . Charlie? Noelle? Blane? Me?”

Delphie sighed.

“Here goes nothing,” Delphie said to herself.

She began to write.
