Impulse 2

A busy coffee shop in Paris, France. An afternoon on a winter weekend. We hear the clatter of dishes and cups being cleared. It is cold outside and the windows have steamed over: inside it is warm, a little too warm, steamy and muggy. Coats and sweaters and scarves are draped over the back of chairs and booths, and hang from hooks on the wall. Puddles of dirty water have formed under the tables- the drippings from shoes. Two people are sitting at a table by a window. One of them studies the menu. The other person does not look at the menu. Finally, the person looking at the menu speaks. What does this person say?

1 is the girl, 2 is the boy

1-Don’t even think about lying to me?
2-How did you know I was going to say anything?
1-I know more than I let on to.
2-Can we please just get back to what we came here for.
1-How is your hot chocolate?
2-Really we need to discus the information that we found it could be really ground breaking.
1-Just remember when in Rome do as the Romans do.
2-We’re in Paris!
1- What did you find on your mission?
2-I found that they go every day
1-That guy over there is working for the enemy he is going to try and thwart our plans.
2- How do they know we are here?
1-They are going to have our hotel surrounded tonight.
2- We are going to have to disappear in plain sight.
1 -HE knows we are here but not who we are.
2 -Should we leave separately?
1- no, he doesn’t have any back up close they are all at the building in question
2- A couple leaving a coffee shop should not be anything strange
1 -true there are tons of couple here in Paris
2- I wish that we could spend one hour with out your mind finding some one who is against us. It really stinks.
1- We really need to go. Do you have you disguise ready?
2- Yes, how ‘bout you?
1- Remember we need to be quiet on the street and only speak French in case anyone can hear us.
2- What is the status on suspected?
1- He is receiving more information and what to do back up will be here in 30 minutes!
2 -Ejecting now?
1- Yes, remember to speak French you nearly got us caught last night. There was someone who heard.
2 -okay
1 -we aren’t in the tourist portion of Paris so we need to really be as much like the French as possible. Ready?
2- go
1- Avez-vous apprécié votre chocolat Felix? (Did you enjoy you chocolate Felix?)
2-Adelaide, J'aime passer du temps avec vous plus que le chocolat!( Adelaide, I enjoy spending time with you more than the chocolate!)


  1. can speak French!?!

    I'm impressed. I really like how you gave this scene a definite location (what better place than Paris, France?). You did a good job taking your reader to this location. The stakes were a little unclear. Meaning, I'm not sure exactly what the stakes are. Are these two spies? Who's after them? What are they hiding? Why are they so suspicious?

    Favorite part: When in Rome....But we're in PARIS! Ha ha.

  2. What is their mission I wonder? The French was a nice touch.

  3. yeah, i liked how specific you were in the location, and not in other things, i think it made it better that way, so people could interpret it any way they want, i liked it a lot
