You know how I post outtakes from my fiction every other Monday? Great, that’s what this is.
Sometimes I post longer sections… and sometimes I don’t. That’s what this is. A longer or short section. Duh.
This is a little bit about Zach from the One More Thing universe, a character I love and often just start writing about whenever he appears.
Then I remember, oh yeah, this scene isn’t just a bunch of information about Zach Ahmad. Which means, regrettably, I have to take out the big chunk of Zach stuff that’s just there intruding on the rest.
If Zach were a real person, he would probably object to the point of everything not being about him. However, he’s also probably happy to be a scene stealer.
Zach being serious? That was unnatural, almost scary. He could dress up as himself for Halloween, just wearing the glasses he needs and hates wearing and saying smart or heartfelt things about people and the world, and it would terrify everyone. Or at least me.
He’d never do that though, wear the glasses.
I wasn’t as cocky as Zach. I wasn’t sure anyone could be, and especially not his best friend, the combined forces of egos that big might cause a tornado or something.
