S is for Setup

 
 
 
 For this year’s A to Z, I will be doing a collection of flash fiction featuring Steven, the MC from Blackbird, from right before he came to Newstead through his first weeks there.

S is for Setup

The sun was just setting when Erikson showed me to my room. It was all set up for me, like they knew I was coming early. I turned to face Erikson who was waiting by the open door. He didn’t even bother to look embarrassed about it.
Would’ve been nice if someone sent a car or something for me then, instead of making me walk the whole damn way.
I waited for a reaction from him to that, but he didn’t look like he’d heard me that time.
Instead, he went on with his own agenda. “This will be your room until the rest of the freshmen arrive in August. For right now, we’ll have you taking classes with this year’s freshmen so you can get used to how things work around here.”
I nodded, hearing the threat just like he meant me to.

I am giving out review copies of Blackbird through Story Cartel, in exchange for Amazon Reviews (And blog reviews would be great, too) before it’s official release date on May 1st You can get your copy here  Also, Story Cartel is doing a big giveaway of its own this month, so signing up for a review of any book featured there puts your name in that pot.
