PROMPT: All Talk

15
What?
Hi, Mr Fox, is it?
That's me.
I work at a publishing company, and I’m supposed to be finding work from ‘promising new authors’ and-
No.
Sir, if you'll just consider, we could-
I said no.
...
...
It really is a fascinating story. I read it all, practically begged to be the one to come and ask you.
I suppose you expect me to be touched by that.
Not at all, Mr Fox.
Sullivan.
...What?
Sullivan. That's my name.
Yes.. I know.
Use it then.
Okay then... Sullivan, I best be going. Unless you're willing to reconsider?
Not in the near future.
In the far future then?
I'm sure you'll find some way to persuade me.
I'll try my very best, Sir.
Now get out of my house.
Of course, Sullivan.

    Haha! I love this! It’s really funny, and I love how annoyed Mr. Fox is. Great job!

    wow, i really like this! The dynamic between the two is very different--the way Mr. Fox tells the other person to use his first name is an interesting choice; it almost signals that he is more friendly, but then he goes back to being annoyed. Really, this is awesome! Great job!
