"Sorry to disturb you at this hour," Static texted, "I thought about it. And my answer is no."
Static checks her bank balance. It's abysmally low. She hasn't worked in nearly a month. She hasn't written in almost as long. Next month's rent. Next month's rent. And oh ya - next month's rent.
Phone rings. She picks up.
"Static! How're you?!?!? It's me, Chutiya Misra."
"Yeah. What's up?"
"So? Have you heard the latest about me?"
"I'm in Delhi. Working with Fantasmorgasmic Films."
"So, I have a job for you. Only you can do it. Also, no one else was free."
"I need you to write for the InternationallyNarcissistic Channel. Investigative documentary. Thrill, intrigue, shock, tears. Blood."
"Subject: Mangalore crash."
"Yeah man! Think about it. First on scene. Beating MyMomma'sAnMP Productions to it."
"Let me think about it."
"Money no object."
"I'll let you know."
"Ok. And by the way, all's forgiven."

In deep anguish, Static tweets.
