The Pancake Pedophile [Tales Of Two Stranger...
Every morning for the past two years community college dropout Almond O'Doyle has sat down to a heaping plate of pancakes, drowned, drenched, absolutely submerged in maple syrup.
The blank breakfast canvas for kitchen-less undergrads who happen to live within walking distance of Joyce's Breakfast & Brunch.
And every morning, for the past two weeks loveless Louis Kaede has sat three booths down from her, sipping steaming cups of coffee and watching as she guzzles down flapjacks by the dozen.
He wasn't some stalker, the highlight of his morning watching a girl stuff her face full of syrupy delicacies, but there was something about the girl who made two-story homes out of waffles that intrigued him.
At a loss for what Lou's first move should be he decided to write a note, finding an even balance between creep and lost puppy, of course, he never expected her to write back.
And so, on one particular Triple-Chocolate Thursday what else does he see sticking out from her W-Eiffel Tower but a syrup-coated piece of paper addressed to Pancake Pedophile.
