Danger Bay—Episode 8—Yet Another Newbie Arrives!

By Molly Halloran

(The following evening)Sarah in front of Cooper’s ©2007 Jay Merton

Sarah found herself standing on the boardwalk outside “Cooper’s General Store.”

“Where am I?” She asked herself out loud, “What is this place and what am I doing here?”

To her left was a well-maintained, but obviously very old red pick-up truck. She looked out into the darkness and observed that she was obviously in a small town—across the road was a gas station and a café. There were a number of people going into the café, but before she could decide whether to walk over, a voice to her left startled her.

Sarah, Jay & Boomer in front of Cooper’s ©2007 Jay Merton“Hello Sarah,” the voice greeted her by name, “Boomer and I’ve been wonderin’ if you’d get here before the meeting tonight.”

Startled, she turned towards the voice and saw two two-dimensional, familiar figures standing next to her…

“Grandad! she exclaimed, “Hi! I guess I’m in Danger Bay, huh.”

“You are, Boomer piped up, “and you have an important meeting to attend, since you are a business owner here.”

“You must be Boomer, Sarah replied as she began to get her bearings, “Business owner?”

“Look there, Jay answered smiling and pointing to the sign on the store.

“Cooper’s General Store,” she read aloud, “I guess I’d better get over there. I wonder what dog ordinances they have here.”

    Bob: My car isn’t here, the aqua Saturn is Boomer’s, and though she doesn’t know it yet, the ’52 Ford pick-up is Sarah’s. Like everything in Danger Bay…ALL things are possible! 😉

    Ines: Yeah, and your character likes it so much, she buys Shadbush’s Saloon! You & Sarah will own half the businesses in town!
    Lysa: Hmmm…if I were able to draw an appropriate two-wheeler of classic design…we could use a stereotype-busting biker chick with brains and compassion! I LOVE busting stereotypes!
    Kaye: Anyone who subjects her or himself to the potentially humiliating caricaturization at my hands deserves some perks.
    George: Well…perhaps I could draw a caricature of certain lender I am acquainted with to offer an opposing viewLOL!
