Speak Easy
1920s America...where the gin joints were underground, the liquor was fine, women enjoyed life, and organized crime was born.

"That is still no excuse to run away," Rosie replied. "I have dealt with jerks before. You are not at all like them."

"You haven't seen me when I'm upset." Arnold replied.

Rosie smirked. "Are you trying to scare me away before anything happens? Because I am not the kind of person who runs that easily."

J.A. Fletcher

"Well if you were, I would suggest that yes, you ought to run."

She shook her head. "I am not going anywhere."

J.A. Fletcher

Arnold turned his head to look at her. "Thank you."

Danielle Thamasa

"You're welcome," she answered. If she was going to run then she would have done so, either after Andrew died or after Emma did.

"You're a very nice girl." Arnold said after a period of silence.

"Thank you," Rosie replied. "I always put everyone else's needs ahead of my own. I would assume that comes from being the middle child."

9/27/2011 #519
J.A. Fletcher

"You're a middle child?"

Rosie nodded and then shook her head. "I was until Emma died."

"Oh. I always wondered what it would be like to have siblings."

Danielle Thamasa

"My parents always talked about Paul since he was the eldest or about Emmeline because she was the youngest and always craving attention. Most of the time I was sort of hiding in the background, but they could always rely on me to get my schoolwork and my chores done without them saying anything about it."

J.A. Fletcher

"If I had siblings I would probably be the trouble-maker."

Danielle Thamasa

"You would have gotten along quite well with Emma."

9/27/2011 #525
J.A. Fletcher

"I'm sure she was wonderful."

9/27/2011 #526
Danielle Thamasa

"She was." Rosie nodded. "She was wonderful and impulsive and if she wanted something then she wouldn't stop until she got it. I admired her for that."

J.A. Fletcher

"Sounds like we're alike."

9/27/2011 #528
Danielle Thamasa

Rosie smiled. "There are some differences though, but yes, you are a lot alike."

9/27/2011 #529
J.A. Fletcher

"I like learning about you, Rosie. I enjoy that I don't have to run to the office tomorrow and print everything you tell me."

Danielle Thamasa

"My life is definitely not newsworthy," Rosie answered.

J.A. Fletcher

"Neither is the President's, but he still managest to make the front page."

"I guess I see your point."

Then Mitch walked out to the living room. "I'm finished."

Rosie looked over at him. "Did you clean or just shove everything under your bed?"

The little boy frowned and then turned to go back to his room.

9/27/2011 #533
J.A. Fletcher

Arnold laughed. "He seems like me at that age. Except he isn't robbing boxcars."

9/27/2011 #534
Danielle Thamasa

"He is exactly like his mother at that age. The only difference is that as the only child, Mitch cannot convince his sister to 'help' him clean."

9/27/2011 #535
J.A. Fletcher

"Also like me, unfortunately."

9/27/2011 #536
Danielle Thamasa

Rosie chuckled. "Luckily enough he may grow out it. Then again, considering he is Emma's son, it is rather likely that may never happen."

9/27/2011 #537
J.A. Fletcher

"Well, boys will be boys."

9/27/2011 #538
Danielle Thamasa

She nodded. "This is true."

9/27/2011 #539
J.A. Fletcher

"Indeed it is." Arnold said. "Say, do you have a phonograph? "
