Author's notes: Written for [community profile] glam_100, prompt #104: Oktoberfest, specifically this picture. Many thanks to @aislinntlc for the preread.

A familiar, odd laugh echoes as Danielle moves the pointer across the Ouija board. It sounds so much like hope that Adam curls his hands until his nails dig into his palms. The small pains don't help, but at least he doesn't press his hands over his ears.

"Talk to us," Danielle says. "We've missed you."

2 soon is spelled out on the board.

"You said I'd find you when I was older." It sounds like an accusation although Adam doesn't mean it that way, but it's been years and he feels more alone than he likes.

You will. Promise.


Adam's long past the point where he remembers the musician's names. This one stands out though. He's short and almost too thin. He's got chipped nail polish, his eyeliner is a bit smeared, and his hair looks like he just got up out of bed.

But Adam doesn't see any of that. He barely even registers that the guy can play guitar, would be good enough for the band if Adam hadn't been able to talk Monte into the job last night after one too many drinks.

None of that matters after the guy's odd laugh echoes through the room.

Current Mood: creative
