Posting late; missed Day 004, but I wrote 447 words out of a required 100 words on the first day, so I think I'm allowed to miss one day this early on.

Drabble a Day 2015
Day 005
Daily Goal: 100 Words
Today's Output: 130 Words
Series: Project Less Talk, More Robots
Characters: Glynn, Nathan

Author Notes:
In the original NaNoWriMo 2007 draft, Nathan is Glynn's best friend. They are both sucked into the alternate universe, and lose sight of each other.

This drabble is a raw, rough, and unedited practice piece. It sounds more like a character sheet than part of a story, but that's what drafts are for.


It was difficult for Nathan to find the words for what he was suddenly feeling for his longtime friend, Glynn. When Glynn had been there it had mostly been a feeling of comfort, of familiarity, of safety. When Glynn went missing, he felt more than a longing he expected to face. He wanted to find Glynn, to hold him and to check for any injuries on his person. He wanted to keep Glynn close, to never let him out of his sight again. He worried if that was too much, if Glynn felt the same way at all. There would only be one way to find out for certain, and so Nathan donned his newly fitted military suit, got on his hoverbike, and set off in pursuit of his partner.
