This week I’m going to give you 155 words from the opening scene of Dropping Quarters, a short story that was originally published as a Torquere Press SIP back in 2008, then after the contract expired, I reworked it a little and self-published the 2nd edition in 2009.
“No masturbating.” The sign on the door of the little room actually said that. Yeah, right. So why did the adult video arcade’s management keep a box of Kleenex in the room? To clean off the screen? Luke supposed the screen might actually need to be cleaned off after a client left the room, but only because he’d been jacking off.
The numerous sticky tissue wads on the floor either meant he wasn’t the only one completely ignoring the rule, or the clients in the room before him probably should have stayed home in bed with a humidifier cranked all the way up. Luke’s money was on the former.
Is that a roll of quarters in your pocket or are you happy to see me? Luke couldn’t help thinking of the mind-numbingly inane line as he pulled the roll out of his pocket. He cracked open the roll and dropped a quarter into the machine.

Luke’s looking for love in all the wrong places. When he meets Cato at an adult video arcade, then again at his softball league game, Luke figures they might have something in common. Can Luke convince Cato that there’s more to him than meets the eye?
