Stark entered the usual Tim Horton’s down the block from his place. The best thing about his day was heading over to sit, drink and enjoy his time in the small back corner of the store. Most days he would bring a book or write, others he would sit and watch people. His favorite thing to do was people watching. Today he sipped on a Cold Brewed coffee, crossing his legs as he casually scanned around the busy shop. It was at the slow peak of the day, the employees busy as they cleaned and stocked for the next rush, the few customers sitting about at the smaller tables chatting away with deep conversations. 

Looking away, Stark took a deep sip of his cold beverage when he noticed a small note written just on the corner. 

Hey cutie ❤

Stark shot his eyes up around the room. Was this for him? No one caught his eye as he let out a small sigh. This message could have been for anyone. After contemplating it, he finally pulled out a pencil from his bag and wrote a message back. 

Why thank you 😉

How juvenile to write on a table. It made Stark feel like a kid again. With that, he cut his day short and headed home. Over the course of the week, he had returned eagerly to have his mystery conversation. Few words scrawled on the table became paper notes left behind. Some days Stark would have to wait until the next note appeared. It was normal since the person would have time off from work. Who was his secret admirer? Stark decided to write a note and leave it behind for the person at the counter. 

Meet me at the usual time on Saturday.

Stark was anxious, waiting till the day had come. He knew his admirer usually had the day off since he never got a note that day. Nervously he tapped on the table. He didn’t even order his drink because his stomach flipped so much. 

“Here’s your Vanilla Cold Brew Coffee, Sir.”

Stark turned perplexed at the voice. “I’m sorry, I didn’t order anything.”

There Stark’s eyes met with the boy holding his coffee. He offered a brilliant smile, waiting for him to take the coffee.

“I know. You order this every day you come in. I’ve been serving you the entire time. I’m glad we finally could meet in person.”

Stark’s heart fluttered. He was gorgeous! He grabbed the coffee with his one hand, then reached out to shake it with his other. “Stark.”


Brian sat down across from him, blushing a little as he scratched at the back of his head.

“I am sorry I didn’t approach you before. I was scared you wouldn’t like me.”

Stark smiled sweetly. “After getting to know you from our conversation, how could I not?”

Leaning in over his fist, Stark was happy to have his first date. They laughed and talked well into the night.

The end.

Tides of News!

Hello and greetings to you all, my Raga-rootlings!

I have some cool announcements that I am excited to bring! First I would like to say thank you to the supporters who have been encouraging me. It’s been fueling me to continue and gives me much joy. I’ve been hard at work trying to continue to write on Darkness Succumbs and finally getting the ball rolling as I spit out chapters 12 and 13. It took a while to get back into the swing of things, so it will be a while before it is edited. I figure being able to just complete the last few chapters to get to the end was more important than flushing out the spelling and grammatical errors.

I also have finally gotten a few chapters of Beauty and the Nerd ready to start posting for the new year! I will be starting off with posting twice a month for the next 3 months to get it started! In between, I may do a few short stories to keep it from having too much of a lull before my classes start up again for university. We will see how things flow for the new course load before I make any adjustments to the posting schedule so as to not burn myself out. Either way, I am excited to finally start sharing the story I have been boasting about for the last few months. I hope my Christmas special gave a good flavour to how it’s going to be and really can’t wait to hear from you all!

Last on my roster of announcements is the new contest I am hosting! To help bring some people to the blog and encourage subscriptions, I will be creating a custom character of a Turnip for a lucky winner! Right beside my Turnip, you will have space on the front page for everyone to see your personalized character! The rules are pretty simple and with each benchmark, you will be able to have a chance to win up to 5 times. So if you don’t win, it’s ok! You will have another chance. Look out for future chances to add an extra name to the draw as I will be making a cool little contest for anyone who wants to part take. For now, the first benchmark is to make 25 subscribers. So if you are interested, check out the Hall of Fame page on my website and subscribe! This contest is through that website only, and not for wordpress. Do if you want to participate you will need to follow the link. Also, if you have any questions at all about the contest or rules, you can send me a message any time through the contacts page or Email me directly at TuranTurnip@gmail.com. I also will take any suggestions or idea’s if you think there would be something cool you want me to try.

Well, that was it for the announcements. I know it wasn’t much since I’ve been plugging away at writing and editing. I am super excited for what’s to come in the new year and I hope you all are too! Let’s get this Raga-rootling army growing and see who wins the first turnip drawing!

See you next week!
