Wash With Like Colours
A laundromat owner watches the downfall of a once confident man whose social skills he used to envy.
This story is the product of another Gamers With Jobs writer's throw down. We had to begin with the line "S/He had something I'd always coveted" and the initial setting had to be a laundromat. Bonus words were: Dwarf, peanut butter, contretemps, embrocation, and zeitgeist. I didn't manage to find space for dwarves or peanut butter. More's the pity.

This story is the result of another Gamers With Jobs challenge. We were asked to choose from a list of rather odd black and white photos. I chose the photo of a young boy being tucked in by a pet crow. Links to the image are at the end of the story.
