Pep talk
by Belladonna

“It’s a shame what they did to that car.”

-“Not again.”

“Seriously, it should be illegal to do that...”

-“It is.”

“…to such a beauty. It never hurt anybody to deserve such a horrible fate.”

-“Except the eyes if you looked at it.”

“Hey! And that’s still no reason to blow it up!”

-“Poor baby.”

“You’re making fun of me, aren’t you?”

-“What? I’d never…”

“You really suck at this pep talk thing you know?”

-“Well, you have to see it from the positive side, Red. It could’ve been you they were shooting at and not that other innocent Torino.”
