Pixie was totally spaced out that morning. She had been living back on the street for a while now, she'd just been traveling
around, she'd maneged to find a lovely little place to live. It was a squatters hut, there was about 20 people in a space
about the size of a bedroom.
'Your turn to get the food Pixie.' Louise said as Pixie opened the door.
I'll drop by the Noodle bar, 'K?'

'I ain't got any money so I'll make a deal with ya' The man at

'Twen'ey bowls of Noodles for twen'ey minutes
'Sorry kid, 20 orders for 20 minutes of waitering'

'Oh, that's right, you want table 23, in that case it's over there' Pixie pointed, 'Make yourselves comfortable

tip and a note. She read it on her way back to the shack.
'If you change your mind...' It read, it had 2-D's phone number
under it. Pixie opened her bag and got out her 'Zombie' dress.
'Rise of the zombies' she thought.
