It's just an idea I had...if you've seen my profile I write romances, and figured what the hey, it might be good - whether it gets to that point I'm not sure...I'm just goin' with the flow on this one. If you like it, let me know and I'll work on more of it. If not...well, please be nice and tell me any ideas you have on how to make it better.

I'll warn you up front, Griffin's probably out of character, and I make no promises that I'll get the character exactly right...but I do promise to try my hardest to do that. I've been trying to get him right, so bare with me on that...I hope I at least come close.


"I wouldn't go down that way if I were you."

Griffin slowed when he heard the speaker, not sure if she was talking to him or not.

"Fine…ignore me…they always do. And they always end up dead."

Now Griffin stopped, and turned to face the girl. "What?"

"Jumpers," She said. "They always end up dead…they don't listen to me. Then again, I don't blame them. But there's about three Paladins who are about to stumble onto a Jumper…I figured I'd give you a head's up." She shoved her hands in her coat pockets and turned to walk away.

"What makes you think I'm a Jumper?" Griffin asked, frowning at her.

"The same way I know there are three Paladins in a coffee shop three blocks that away," She turned again and pointed, still walking away.

"I'm not afraid of Paladins," Griffin told her, continuing on his way.

She shrugged, "I'm impressed…good luck then."

Griffin shook his head, and continued on his way. "Crazy girl…" he muttered under his breath.

"I heard that!" She called after him.

Griffin turned to say something, but she was already gone.


So...how's this first part? Intriguing? Or completely horrible and needs to be deleted?
