Tentative

by Marcus L. Rowland

"What is this?" asked George, leafing through the PostIts Rube had given her. "The same name a dozen times in one day?"

"Tentative," said Rube. "Any of them might happen, but they aren't definite. Don't take the soul unless you're looking at a corpse."

"Someone really hates this guy? He's accident-prone?"

"Maybe." Rube gave nothing away.

Roxy came in, spotted the PostIts, and said "Journalism conference in town?"

"How'd you know?"

"I was on it last year. Waste of time."

"Then you know his full name."

"Hers. Possibly."

"Then... Please?"

"No comment... But say 'Hi' to Lois for me..."
