1 Work in Amanda and the Alien (1995)
For @mtc ‘s birthday! <3 I do hope you like.
Jojo watched her in her usual spot, trying to gauge her feelings. Amanda was one of his regulars, had even taken shifts at the cafe for a short time when she needed work. She’d become a regular a couple of years ago, bringing in her sketchbook nearly every other day. He personally thought her sketches we gorgeous but one of her main complaints was that her art never sold.
But this melancholy started a couple of days ago. It wasn’t like Jojo didn’t know what happened, but he didn’t know. As far as he knew a couple of cops came in looking for the lady she had left with in the morning, then she had come in for maybe thirty minutes, and then brought her very much ex-boyfriend in for a date. She rarely visited that much in one day, but Charlie dancing quite like that was even more unusual. He had a very heavy suspicion that the ‘man-eating’ alien might have gone home with her and took Charlie. Which to be frank wasn’t a loss and the ladies of the area likely would have rejoiced if they knew.
