9/18/06 10:11 am - Familiarity Breeds Coincidence.
Putting the coffee cup down gently and gathering her belongings Milla glanced at one of the other patrons of the coffee shop. she recognized him from somewhere. Maybe just a coincidence, but the fact he was drawing reminded her of someone she knew from over the Internet. Not wanting to appear to weird Milla walked out of the shop and let the bell ring on the door frame behind her.
Ninja glanced across the shop and sipped his coffee. A girl who had been reading a book and was now leaving was staring at him looked familiar. Like a character from a book or a TV show. She was pretty, even if she looked melancholy leaving the café. As the door bell tinkled into silence Ninja started to draw a picture of her.
The Internet, late a night was Millas adopted home. She was also bored and waiting for a reason to sleep.
"Milla dear, go to sleep. You've got lecturers tomorrow," said her mom though Millas door.
"Okay I'll be asleep in an hour. I promise," lied Milla.
Milla clicked op a list of RSS feeds and saw a friend of hers had posted some new art.
It was her.
Well not exactly her.
The artist must have only seen her very quickly, as details had been filled in incorrectly.
But it was her.

Right down the poster I was sitting next to while I had coffee after buying some games in town.

I thought I recognized the person.
If I'd have known it was you I'd have said hello or something.
What games did you buy?

Well at least it wasn't some crazy creep drawing me.
Oh the games I bought. Erm Puyo Puyo and Chrono Trigger.
I was feeling the need for some SNES love earlier.
Ninja decided not to reply further from that.
How could he?
It was an interesting oddity of a coincidence in his mind but nothing more.
Besides Ninja was busy scribbling together the first issue of "Back Hat Cowgirl". He was having difficulty coming up with a sensible dress and poncho combination that didn't look silly or naked blowing in a dust storm.
Fuckup beeped with a new SMS message.
The sound filled the room for a few seconds which where unbearably loud this late at night.
It was from his boss.
"Will you have that art done before the meeting tomorrow?"
"No. I'd like to have had it done. But I need to get some sleep around about now if I'm going to even make the meeting on time," replied Ninja.
"Oh well deadlines are made to be broken. Don't worry too much about being on time. Good night."
