Hey, it’s Dean! I annoyed the staff at
the reception for like three hours
until one of them gave me your
wristband ID number. I was just
really hoping we’d get to
discuss that date. 🙂

um, dean who?

Blue hair, excellent cook, most
charming boy you ever met?

???

Seriously, Lily. You have that many
dates with that many Deans?

wrong # bro

Omg.

Yeah.

Okay.

I am not currently drowning in
a pool of embarrassment.

AT ALL.

k

Sorry to have bothered you, man.

wait

blue hair, uh

yeah that rings a bell

😑

LILY!

It’s you, right?

7 o’clock tonight?

😇

okay

admit it

my parents completely
freaked you out

WHAT???

What are you talking about?

NO!

Not at ALL.

Dinner was excellent! Thank them
again for me! I had so much fun!

promise?

Promise.

promise on the cause

I promise on the cause.

promise on ur mom’s head

i knew it!

dean, i’m so sorry

i know they can be a pain

Don’t apologize, really. It wasn’t
that bad. It’s just, I don’t know. Not
what I was expecting, I suppose.

what were u expecting?

Well, to be scared that they wouldn’t
like me, obviously. Or scared to get
food stuck in my teeth or to, like, fart
when it’s really quiet.

But I was just scared.

Period.

*shudders*

oh man

that bad, uh?

it’s my mom, isn’t it?

I’m afraid so.

That woman is INTIMIDATING.

haha

she doesn’t intimidate me

I know.

Nobody does.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

You said it too early!

Like a YEAR ago, to be exact.

I win!

no way, my wristband lagged

Nah nah nah! I win I win I win!

fine

no need to rub it in

whatever

what wish do you want?

mmmmmm

Let me think.

What could I possibly want?

🤔🤔🤔

my patience expires in a minute

Found it!

I know what I want.

😈

You want a weird little monster
with horns?

um

okay?

😛

😂

No!

I want to know a truth.

ouhh so serious

Indeed.

hit me

Is it true what you told your
mother the other day?

That you don’t care about the
cause? That you’re not scared
about the Flood?

haven’t you learned by now
that i’m made of iron. boy, ur
gal’s nickname is “bring it or
make way”

Lily, seriously. Are you scared
sometimes?

Every waking minute.

Me too.

About Dean & Lily

Dean & Lily is a fast-read, dystopian story in the form of short episodes, each under 500 words. 

I’m just having so much fun writing little extras like these pieces of text conversations between the two stars of my book! But I’m really happy to announce that sometime this month, a downloadable version of D&L season one, including bonus features and extra episodes, will be available for sale on my blog!

Until then, you can start reading the first episodes of D&L for free, right here!

 

Thank you so much for reading everyone!
