Heres the second half to my rather bad short story :D
The guy at the desk looks expectantly at me. I guess that means I’m supposed to say something. Customer service has come a long way. I clear my throat. My palms are all sweaty.
Hey look mate, I was just looking for a movie but I couldn’t find it, I say leaning forward so the other customers couldn’t hear.
“What you looking for mate?” The guy asks.
I grin weakly at him. Yeah, I’m just looking for that movie with, you know, the ship and it crashes.
“Sorry mate, you’re going to have to be a bit more specific then that.” The guy’s eyes were pure evil. What did he have against me?
I lean a bit closer. Ah well. You know, it’s that movie with what’s-his-name in it...Leonardo Devinci or something like that.
“Mate, that’s not very specific, don’t you know the name of the movie?”
I shudder and look around, nobody is watching. Still. I lean even closer. Ah, its called. I take another look around. Titanic.
The guy smirks. “I’m sorry, I didn’t quite catch that”
Oh, that sly man. I realized that he must be in league with Jona. I look wildly around again and lean even closer so my mouth is only a few centimeters away from his ear. My body is bent over the counter.
The Titanic. I hiss, a fraction louder.
The guy laughs. “I’m sorry mate I can’t hear you, you’re gonna have to speak up.”
I glare at him. It’s a cruel world. The Titanic. I say, coughing wildly.
“Mate, there are other customers here and they want to go home, your not helping by whispering and coughing into my ear.”
I turn around to see all the other customers standing behind me. I gulp. This was it. I’ll never live it down. Head hung in defeat, I say, THE TITANIC.
I freeze. The guy grins. “Oh sorry mate, must have accidentally turned on the mike by accident. Anyway, its in the Romance section. Now can you please move on so the other customers can leave?”
