As plans went, Kelley’s massive charcoal wall chart was astounding. It was almost as though her fingers were moving on their own accord. Certainly her rudimentary schooling hadn’t prepared her for flowcharts, pie charts and the mapping of an actual business plan. And yet there it was in all its smudgy glory – the layout for the launch of “Kelley’s Flowering Elixir Soap Creations and Other Fineries Fit For Civilized Peoples and Royalty”.
Yeah. That name really needed some help. And thankfully before Kelley could climb out from the cellar, join life above ground and launch that really awful name, Bronson stepped in. With the usual loud POOF!, he suddenly appeared and startled Kelley so badly, she actually levitated off the ground and hovered for a moment. Weird.
Once she had calmed her galloping heart and landed back on the cellar floor, she excitedly took one of Bronson’s little grubby hands and pulled him the to wall where the business plan was written. After glancing it over, he turned to Kelley and smiled. Granted, he wasn’t *quite* as ick to her as he had once been, but still, that smile was more grimace than cheer and Kelley couldn’t help but give a little shiver.
Walking over to the portion of the wall where she had spelled out Kelley’s Flowering Elixir Soap Creations and… well, you know what I mean, Bronson made a quick movement of his hands and the name vanished.. only to be replaced by one single word. Kelley looked for a moment and then it was her turn to smile. Yes, that was perfect. And so much better than the name she had labored over.
With another POOF! Bronson vanished and Kelley did a little jig as she said the name over and over to herself she silently giggled with glee.
