Wet And Ready, Bro
A book about sirens. Wow, they look like trouble. Boatgirl has already heard the whole story from A.C. and is trying to digest the bit about how he just fought an evil mermaid and is underwater royalty. I like that this show's not about the hero keeping a million secrets from everybody. It's refreshing. "In a clamshell, yes," A.C. says. Boatgirl jokes that they always look so friendly on the Starbucks cups. I thought I knew Starbucks, but I don't get that joke at all. A.C., wearing an orange muscle shirt, says he didn't believe it either until he was attacked and that the creature is coming back for him. Boatgirl suggests a road trip to the desert with a truckload of Evian. "Eva," he says. Boatgirl has a name? All right. You're "Eva" now. He says that he thinks it's the same creature that attacked his mom, and that he has to face her. Eva figures out that he's serious. He suggests that she close up shop and head out of town for a few days so she won't get caught up in this. "What about you?" Eva asks. A.C., walking away dramatically, says he's taking The Quint to Atlas Point where Ving has weapons. Eva sees clouds and says there's a storm coming anyway and that she'll go visit her sister in Tampa. A.C. apologizes for all the craziness, but Eva smiles, and says being friends with him has always required a leap of faith. She figures someday he'll be able to give her a cool title like, "Duches of the Deep." How about, "Pruned After the Pilot?" A.C. smiles brightly. Is it romance?
