Fandoms: Odd Thomas Series - Dean Koontz
22 Dec 2014
Odd starts his journey in Las Vegas by jumping right into the deep end.
“There is an elf. On my shelf,” Captain Holt pronounces. It’s entirely possible he sounds more aggrieved than usual - Jake can never tell. Amy’s frowning though, and as the leading inhouse expert on all things Holt, she’s most likely frowning because he’s unhappy. Or she could be frowning because she just remembered she forgot to floss that morning.
“I didn’t put it there,” says Amy.
“ - Name of your sex tape!” Jake says, because it’s basically a reflex at this point, like punctuation, except he doesn’t use punctuation so that’s a bad example. Scratch that analogy! But the point remains.
Amy’s biting her lip. Maybe it’s the floss thing after all.
“You misunderstand,” says Captain Holt. “I placed the elf on my shelf.” There is a long pause. “His name is Jingles,” Captain Holt offers, as if this will clarify proceedings.
Jake blinks. Twice.
