hey if you like stories about teenage kids doing stupid stuff for no good reason but that’s the whole point, lemme know if you can read a draft of this story i wrote. questions i am asking: a) who did the bad thing? b) can you visualize it? c) is anyone anywhere at all even a good person ever?
paloma and selah pick up film; twenty six of thirty one
It took them five minutes to get him to help them in the first place, even though they were the only ones in the store.
“Weren’t you just here a week ago? You didn’t use all of that in a week,” said The Photo Corner’s most loyal employee, Jonah.
Paloma shrugged, “I just need some more.”
“Do you do anything besides buy more film?” he asked.
“Yeah,” said Selah, “she takes pictures on her camera. It’s not like she eats it, Christ.”
Jonah considered that he wasn’t paid well enough to get into a fit with two teenage girls, so he walked towards the shops back, where they kept refrigerators filled with different makes and sizes of film.
“Asshole,” said Selah.
Paloma shrugged, “I don’t think he thinks I actually know how to work a camera.”
“Probably doesn’t. Dudes are terrified that girls know how to do the same things they do, they think we’ll eventually phase them out. Ideally, we will.”
“Think about it,” said Selah, “We can milk them like cattle for their sperm and keep them on a steady diet of corn meal and grass.”
Jonah returned with a small box and six rolls of film, “Is that it?”
Paloma nodded, “Yeah.”
Paloma pulled a fistful of crumpled, sweaty, one dollar bills and a ziplock full of change out of her pockets, dropping them on the counter, she nodded to Selah, grabbed her film, and walked away.
Once they left, Paloma opened her wallet to rearrange the crisp collection of tens and twenties. Noticing Selah watching her, she explained, “That guy is an asshole, I know, but he’s the only one who carries this stuff. Can’t bite the hand that cooks you.”
“Feeds you,” said Selah.
“Yeah. So I stiff him a few bucks every time but after he counts out sixteen dollars in pennies and gross nickels, he barely knows.”
Selah could respect such duplicitousness, and so she told Paloma as much.
