The Stories Begin
Hi. Welcome. What can I get you to drink? My name’s CJ, nice to meet you. And before you ask, yes, I’m American. Been living on the island now for about two years. Ran away from home so to speak.
Well again, welcome to Niko’s. Are you staying for lunch? Great. Niko’s has the best gyros on the island. And the calamari? Caught fresh just off the edge of the patio. Well, okay, maybe not that close, but the fishing boats dock just on the other side of that fence there so when I say the sea food is fresh, it is FRESH.
So, where are you from?
Hmmm, I’ve never been there. I’m from a city you’ve probably never heard of. The place never generated much in the name of news. Well, except for that nasty business awhile back with a serial rapist. Oh, and we have a couple of famous writers from there too. Ever heard of Chari Sayles or Caitlyn Birch? Yeah, they’re both from my home town. Anyway, it’s not a bad place, just never felt like home to me. Top it off with one broken heart too many, and here I am. If you have a minute, I’d love to tell you the story. It all started with a dream…
