Fly by Night was my NaNo novel in 2013. It didn’t go exactly as I intended, but it’s still a great story. Enjoy!
Half an hour later, prescriptions in hand, Blythe waited for the release papers. Elam came by a few times with other people in wheelchairs. She was signing her papers when he stopped once more.
“I’m on break.” He squatted by the chair, gazing up at her. His eyes were a vivid azure, like the waters of the Caribbean. “Sorry if I got you in trouble with your brother.”
“He’ll survive. It’s not the first time he’s gotten upset with me. Won’t be the last.”
“Family,” he said with a sigh. “My brothers and I communicate with Morse Code, by way of punches. So I get it.”
Blythe giggled. “Jason would never hit me. I imagine he’s wanted to once or twice.”
“Don’t lose my number.”
“I won’t. Aren’t you supposed to be working?”
“I am. I’m here to take you to the car. Your brother is pulling it around right now. He might hit me with it….”
“He might. But hey, you’re in the right place.”
