9/15/21: Wake Up and Write!

Prompt: Grab a nearby book. Turn to any random page and read the fifteenth line down (for September 15th, I guess?). Use this line as inspiration to someway, somehow, write a story in under 250 words. Post it here at some point this week if you’d like to share. Remember, the ultimate goal is to get words on the page. Happy writing!

(PS - I just wandered to my bookcase in the dark, grabbed a random novel. It happened to be The Godfather by Mario Puzo. I opened to a random page and read the fifteenth line down. The first two words: “strike back”. Might have to roll with it!)
