The Alley

By:Andrew Troy Keller

It was on the Fifthteenth day of October that I was walking home from a disasterous blind date that my friends had conned me into going on,only to turn on to one of the streets and suddenly heard someone screaming her head off in a nearby alleyway.

And after I've ran into the alley and noticed a raven haired beauty on the ground and looking like she had the living crud kicked out of her,I've looked around for the creep who had done it,only to discover that he was nowhere to be found.

After that,I've walked over to the injured babe,allowed her to wear my jacket and asked,"Do you want me to take you home?"

After she had said "Yes" to my offer,I've taken Morgana--which actually was her name--back to her brownstone residence and asked,"Would you like to join me for a nightcap?"

After I've said "Yes" to her invitation,Morgana had fixed a drink for each of us,handed my drink to me and said,"We shall now drink a toast to our newfound friendship."

And after we've tapped our glasses against each other,we've swallowed down our drinks and placed our glasses on the coffee table.

But after we've done that,my head has started spinning and Morgana had suddenly let out such a sinister laugh,causing me to realize way too late that I've made a horrible mistake of not realizing that she was actually an evil sorceress.
