Title: FINDING ESTA #1 OF THE SUPES SERIES
Genre: Paranormal. Urban Fantasy
The weather forecast said clouds with cool winds, with a small chance of sunny spells: a perfect example of British summer time. I busied myself getting ready – stomach in knots – to see my folks. Half way through brushing my teeth, I recalled brushing them earlier.
“Crap,” I spat and stared at the white gunged, annoyed at how the dreaded, weekly event was disturbing me. “I need to earn cash, quick. I need to sever my ties with them, for good.”
Flo, my best friend in – well, the afterlife – listened dutifully to my weekly rant. She sighed audibly in response. She knew I could never do so completely. They were vile, but they were my parents, after all.
My heart beat quickened unbearably, “No more Sundays eating food like puke and… well, everything else. Won’t it be great, Flo?” I forgot what I was doing, looking around for clues.
“You’re telling me,” Flo agreed, from where her spirit now lived. “But really, what’s the worst that could happen if you just called up and said, ‘Hey you pair of evil freaks, screw you?” Ever the devils advocate, which got awkward as she lived within the realms of my subconscious. Or something like that. I never did get a complete handle on exactly how it worked.
“Oh. I dunno, they might let my flat –or rather their flat – to someone else, financially forcing me to move back in with them. Or worse!” I gave up trying to recall whatever it was I’d forgotten to do, and swung my backpack in place, over my shoulder and threw psycho-pharmaceuticals into my mouth, helping them down with a great gulp of tap water.
