A PRINCE OF THE OTHERWORLDS PREQUEL SHORT STORY!
***EXCERPT BELOW FROM DRAGONS DON'T DATE!***
To his surprise, she messaged back. Excuse me?
I am reliably informed that most women on here who don’t have photos are actually men.
My username actually says I’m a girl.
…a likely story.
He assumed that would be the end of it, but then it wasn’t: Anyone ever tell you you’re weird?
You don’t even know. He snorted.
There was a long pause, in which he pondered future responses – and future ways Zach was going to repay him for this – before his phone buzzed again.
Was it going to take you that long to send me a dick pic or something?
What? he typed in, blinking. No. Why? he asked, and then read up. I’m not that kind of weird.
Just an average annoying kind of weird then?
One of his eyebrows rose. You’re the one who reinitiated conversation.
Hmm. I notice you also do not have photos – and that your username is not a lie.
I decided recently to be more truthful.
Well it’s rare that men are self-aware enough to acknowledge that they’re difficult. They usually just expect the people in their lives to bend.
Thank you. I think.
You’re welcome. So now, truth-telling stranger, just how is it that you’re lying here? Like you first asked me?
I’m here under duress.
Should I call 911 for you? Are you trapped in a basement by a serial killer and getting a date on this app is the only way out?
Damian caught himself smiling at the screen. Yes. It’s very dark. If I don’t get a woman’s number by midnight they’re going to chop off my hand.
Oh, that’s too bad. However would you type?
He paused. He knew he shouldn’t type what he wanted to type next, because it was too strong, and possibly too strange, and who the hell knew who PoolGirl92 really was besides? But it felt right.
For you – I would find a way.
