Cousin Harold - Prolog


Theresa Allen

You enter the chat room as "Mystery Man."
You greet me with "Long time, no see."
I say, "I think I know who you are."
You say, "No, you're not that clever."

You say, "Your mother is descended from Homer."
I say, "I really think I know who you are."
You say, "No, you really aren't that clever."
Then, you say, "Apollo resides in my brain."
I say, "Stop it. You'll make the rest of us look crazy."

You say, "I enjoy taunting you."
I say, "Stop it Harold. You'll make the rest of us look mad."
You say, "What makes you think that I'm Harold Davis?"

August 1999
