A tale of a librarian / witch with a cadre of acolytes who must fight a penny pinching town counsel to maintain their club’s funding…. this weeks episode: ‘Ronnie Gets Down to Business’
Peter and Alexa spent Friday in the park. Pete was honing his skills on unsuspecting people they encountered. Pete would innocently start a conversation but as he talked, his stare penetrated his target’s conscious mind. As he modulate his voice and tone he could have the target lower their social guards and reveal more of their inner selves than they normally would.
His conversation would work to foster a sense of connection between him and his target. From there, he could penetrate their minds and build inside his target a willingness to comply with has various requests. His targets always jumped through the same hoops; they knew him, they liked him, they trusted him, they wanted to please him.
So far this afternoon one new ‘friend’ gave him twenty buck, another one was going to get him a sandwich and now a policeman was talk Peter’s picture while he was wearing the officer’s hat. Alexa knew that in a moment the policeman would not remember having a hat and Pete would have another souvenir. With a devilish smile and youthful good looks his natural charm made him a compliance machine.
After a while, Alexa selected a target for Pete. A woman with a blonde ponytail and Nike jogging shorts with a tight white T-shirt was stretching after her jog around the lake’s trail.
“I want her panties. Your mission young man is simply go and fetch,” she said.
Pete sized the woman up, attractive, late thirties, nice pleasing figure. “Hmmm,” he said. “She looks like she likes to work up a sweat.”
He had Alexa hold his new hat an went to work. A smile spread across her face as she watched him walk out of the park with the jogger in tow.
