Continuing with To Catch A Marlin...
To Catch A Marlin is a futuristic cat and mouse tale involving Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.
In this scene, we have Jax in London, in her apartment, having a particularly reflective moment...
She checked the time, just after 5 a.m. London Time. Traveling through space really messed up her internal clock. She was wide awake, starving hungry for chicken wings, and wanting a meaty drink like a Guinness. Even the two days she’d spent flat out on her back, most of it sleeping, hadn’t really helped her reacclimate to Earth life.
Outside the quaint townhouse in Stockwell Park, listed under Jacqueline Sturgeon, the rain pattered. It looked like winter this year would be a wet one. Not that it made much difference from the previous years—but a little snow would be nice. London didn’t believe in Weather Control, claiming it caused the city to lose its traditional charm. Not many sodden residents agreed.
