This is a direct continuation  from last week’s eight and the perfect excuse to use this image, which was sent to me by a friend who may have mistaken the kind of story this is . . .

A few seconds later, his phone pinged: “Yes—Why?”

“I need your gnomes bad.”

He waited, but instead of a ping, his phone rang.  “Hey.”

“If you’re going to sext,” Viv  said, “turn off your autocorrect.”

“I wasn’t.  Can I borrow your caffeine gnomes?”
