Short Story Shuffle!

Here's my tale for the #ShortStoryShuffle, a little game I put together on the @nanopals blog. I guess it needs a title so we'll call it:

TEXTS FROM LAST DIMENSION

So I guess like chateau is just a word for fancy mansion

LOL, but isn’t it castle?

tht so but none of the ones we’ve been to are really castles
A fking catapault would take them down

LOL or a pipe bomb.

ikr, I should look up a recipe

omg dooooo ittttttt lol

that would be so bad. I really should now, just to piss off mom
we’re going to another one tonight
imma do it

she being a bitch?

yea made me take out my headphones so I have to listen to the stupid guide
can’t understand him at all, hes talking like latin
txting you in secret
and im not gonna do it, jail would suck even worse than her

ROFL were secret buddies

fk yeah
whatchu up to?

messing around online
Tell me about the chateau!

were just getting to it, this whole bus is really weird
like all weirdos

too late
i think the guide is like a priest
hes trying to get us to do some chant

jump off
swim back

my mom will kill me
this water is really cold
k they stopped chanting
so glad

woah this place reeks
smells like a fkn sewer
there are all these paintings of old dudes and ladies in robes
wtf they’re all holding fish
this is like some long john silvers cult

LOL but dude that’s creepy

this must be some kinda art museum
maybe thats why its all so weird
europeans

racist LOL

what’s your mom doing?

she’s reading all the little plaques out loud
least these are pretty much the same
some weird named dude killed this old dude
for the glory of his stupid god
this is just like the vatican
except they have nicer hats

LOL ur hilarious but I still think that place is going to kill you
u should tell your mom you want to leave

i did! she’s not listening…. she says the bus doesn’t go back for another three hours
imma go find the bathroom

Loved it! Bit of a struggle to read but I was laughing out loud the whole way through.

THIS. WAS. AWESOME.

Maybe it's because I'm a chronic goddamn texter, but I didn't have any trouble reading. Love how you decided to convey this (also, damn you for having such a brilliant all-dialogue story; I nearly died from all the narration in mine)!

Excellent work, good sir! :D Thanks for sharing and thanks a million for the awesome hat-shuffling adventure!
