Please Stand By

Ace yawned, walking into the house. He was tired from running Rowan's stupid training drills.

It was time for a little relaxation—relaxation that included food and television.

He passed through the living room, where Aerrow was plopped down in front of the television, and headed into the kitchen to grab some snacks.

Moments later, Luke joined him in the kitchen.

"Hey, Ace?" he said, a questioned expression on his face.

"Yeah, what is it?"

"Uh…Do you know why Aerrow's standing next to the TV?"

"Huh?" Ace looked up from the fridge.

"You need to see this."

Ace followed Luke back to the living room. Lo and behold, the three year old was standing next to the television.

"Uh, Aerrow?" Ace said "Why are you standing next to the TV?"

"He said, 'Pease stand by'," the boy said matter-of-factly.

Ace looked back at Luke and said, "Works fer me."

He turned around and walked back into the kitchen.

Luke sighed. "Why do I get stuck with all the weirdoes?"

i knew a kid who did that

For some reason, people like the weird things that come out of my mindworm-laden brain. So here's a new series. Who knows what weirdness will ensue. I hope it will be at least as good as the first. But that call will be yours, my lovely (and apparently whacked-out) readers.

So... how was the first one?
