Terminal – Rough Draft 


Chapter 1 – Courrage 
When Travis first cast eyes on her standing behind the counter with her fringe playfully hanging over her right eye, green streaks running threw it he knew she was special. 

Every morning Travis stopped by her shop and bought himself ten cigarettes that he’d never smoke giving him a chance to speak to her. It was a delicate game making sure he had timed the queue right to be served by her and not the battle axe she usually worked alongside with.

Today was going to be different than the others. Travis had spent a good ten minutes outside the shop this morning mustering some courage .Today he was going to try and speak to her. After all it had been months.

“Just the ten deck today dude?” she said as Travis moved to the front of the queue. 

“Yes please” Travis said as though something was caught in his throat. “Maybe you should take it easy on the smokes dude?” “But then I’d see you less” before Travis had time to regret his attempt at a chat up line.. “Were do you get off hitting on people at work and with a queue of customers listening too!” she said scowling at Travis. That scowl however quickly turned into a cheeky smile. “I’m winding you up dude, I finish at six tonight dude, bands are on at seven at ku club, and I suppose I will see you there.” 

“Definitely” Travis said embarrassingly while shuffling out off the shop.
Chapter 2
Travis’s job was dull enough most days but today was worse than usual. In-between taking calls all he could do was look at that dull office clock it didn’t seem more than five minutes each time. Then suddley the time had come. He had wished his day away and now the time was here the nerves set in.

Travis had made it to Ku club early. As he walked in his shoes began to stick to the floor as he walked and you could smell the faint odour of sweat and cigarette smoke. 

Travis approached the bar as he walked he could hear the band sound checking. 

“What can i get you?” the bartender said slightly sharply so he could be heard above the band. “Double jack and coke please, with just a splash of coke.”

“Boo!” Screamed a loud ladys voice behind Travis startling him. As he turned round there she was looking stunning as ever.  

“Don’t you know its rude to start drinking before your date arrives? Or are you just to rock and roll for me?” before Travis could answer she began with introductions. “Well anyway my name is Amy, what should i call you?” “I’m Travis” “I love that name, always had it picked out as a cool baby name!” Amy said. 

He looked at her standing there rocking a baggy sunny day real estate t shirt and tartan skirt almost wearing it playfully. Travis almost felt like a imposter in the rock club.

The band began to sound check. There attention was drawn to the stage. There stood three guys. Drums, bass and guitar. They were cokey and funny with it. Amy laughed every time they did . Unfortunately he missed most of the punch lines and just laughed awkwardly along with Amy.

Soon the band began there set as the pub filled up. The singer announced “our next one you’re goanna want to dance too. This is bus life” before he had finished announcing the song Amy had dragged Travis to the dance floor. 

The night spiralled into drinks, ska dancing and laughing and the next thing he knew his alarm was sounding for work the next morning.

His travel to work was full of flash backs from the night before.

Travis felt like he crawled from his bed to the bath room. As he took off his shirt from the night before he laughed. His chest was covered in badly done writing it was Amy’s mobile number scribbled in eyeliner.

So That was a short exert of the basic draft of terminal. Please feel free to offer advice in the comment section. Thanks ✌️


The Fall – ( New Book )

Hey. This is a short exert from my first draft of my new book entitled The Fall. It is a romantic story within a sci-fi story. There are some pretty big moments and some twists coming but for now building the formation of two people who are falling for one another unexpectedly thrown together in a life or death situation.

He new the first time he sore her standing behind that counter with her fringe hanging over her right eye, green streaks running threw it that she was special.
Every morning Travis stoped at her shop to buy ten cigarettes just so he had a excuse to see her and maybe speak to her.
Well today Travis had decided that he needs to just well as they say “go for it.”

“Just the ten deck today dude?” She said as he approached the counter.
“Yes please” Travis said as though something was caught in his througt.
“Mabye you should move on to twenty decks dude?”
“But then I’d see you less ..”before Travis could finish “were do you get off dude? hitting on people who are just trying to do there job . I mean it’s hard enough with..” Travis interrupted “I’m so sorry” she scoweled then that scowel turned to a cheeky smile. ” I’m winding you up dude. I finish at 6 , bands are on at 7 at ku club. See you there.”

Seven was not arriving fast enough . Travis arrived at the club checked the time “God dam it!” It was only half six. Once again Travis was early , he always was. Travis went inside after a little bit of teasing from the large punk guy working the door.
“Double Jack , splash of coke please.” Travis practicing his calm and cool voice for when his date arrived.
“Boo! Don’t you know it’s rude to be on it before your date or are you just too hard core for me?”
She had arrived her green hair weaned brighter and highlighted her also green eyes. She was rocking a large band t shirt and a tartin skirt. Travis could not believe his luck.
“So my name is kat ,what should I call you mr?”
“I’m Travis ” before Travis could say anything else kat had hold of his hand and was giving him a crash course in ska dancing.
The rest of the night was a blur of drinking,dancing and laughing.
There was so much laughing.

The laughing didn’t even stop when Travis woke up with a hangover . This hangover was well worth it he thought.
His travel to work was full of flash backs to that night. He would definitely have to call in for his cigarettes this morning.
As he walked into the shop he noticed that Kat was not there.
“were is kat today?” He asked.”Her day off she was not well today”.

That’s a shame thought Travis. I hope it wasn’t those tequila shots, or the dancing till the early hours.

When Travis arrived at work he took off his t-shirt to discover written on his chest in black eye liner a mobile number with “txt me” underneath.

Chapter 2

So the txts were sent . The back and forth felt as good as there conversation on that first night.
The plan was to meet at .. flat from there she said “we will go we’re the mood takes us.”
Travis loved her positive energy and her flights of fancy.
The time for there second date came quicker than expected even if Travis spent most of the day clock watching.

Travis approached her flat in a large 70’s style high rise. He could feel the hairs on the back of his neck stand up and a tingle off excitement .
When the door opened there stood a tall bearded man.
“You must be Travis I’m  Dave room mate.” Defiantly not the person Travis thought he’d be seeing. “Any way mate before things get awkward you have more chance with me than kat if you catch my drift.” Travis laughed and said ” what a introduction , sexual preference before name !”
