On to this week's installment. I wrote this a while back, since Gil and Marci were bugging me. OK - it's a bit of a stretch on the prompt, perhaps, but I still think it fits, in a way.
The [real world] story of Gil and Marci continues.
Part 1 Devotion
Part 2 Detour
One evening when Gil's wife is out of town on business, he runs into Marci in the wine section of the market near her apartment.
But she reaches for a bottle of Gil's favorite Pinot Noir and looks at him in a way he understands very well.
Gil suppresses a nervous laugh and blurts out, "I get kind of unpredictable when I drink that."
"I know," Marci says, as she slips the bottle into her basket and heads for the checkout line.
Update: This is the first time Marci has appeared on stage, and I'm getting to know her better. Now I believe it is the same Marci in both story lines. Her back-story is starting to take form, too. She's not an evil person, by any means, but she rejects conventional ideas of morality, and very much lives in the moment. 'Nuff said, for now.
