The Alley Way chapt 4The Alley Wayby Wendy OlsonBennyA black ceramic mug that read "Best Dad" left the lips of middle aged man. His dark hair tossed to look like he had done something to it but mainly was just trying to hide the gray. The blue eyes starred at a point on the wall not really connecting to the voice talking in his ear. "BENNY!" it said, but the man did nothing more the raise the mug with the dark brown coffee up to his lips again. "BENNY!" once more and this time a small punch on his arm that was wearing a white dress shirt. He also wore a Star Trek tie and jeans. Benny liked to dress up but only a little. He was in the middle of his co-workers where one dressed up and the other dressed causally.After the punch connected to Benny's arm he turned to face a brown short haired woman with green eyes. She looked the same age as he did and was very pretty. The woman shook her head and then pointed at the two girls across the table."Tina a

Owen didn't really seem to care as he turned over in is large half unmade bed. His alarm was already late in waking him up, but Owen never liked to show up on time. He only worked in the IT department of a law firm, and there were two others that worked there who could handle it if Owen didn't make it there on time.The shorter middle-aged man tossed his blonde hair out of his eyes to see the red numbers on the clock blur in and out of focus. Owen pulled the beer can sitting by the alarm off the table and drank it. There was only a bit left that was stale and warm, but it still tasted of the party the night before, which made it worth it. Owen then tossed it to the floor. It hit with a clash of can on can as there had been a pile of beer cans in the corner.After a few more moments the

His black hair, that was slightly greying, was slicked back to make a point of not looking the part of an IT guy, which happened to own the hair. It took a moment for the grey suited man to realize that he was in fact talking to just a bunch of computers for the others in the IT department had not arrived yet."Great, late as usual." He said as he sat down at his computer. The man was getting older, but he still was a fast and smooth talker and he couldn't wait to get to work...or was it to get off of work? The phone began to ring and the only one in the room, who happened to be the head of the IT department, answered it. "Hello, this is Vaughn how can I assist you today?"The voice on the other end began to run on and on about the screen being black. "Did you try turning it off and on again?

It hit with a clack where the ball touched the shinny lane. The ball spun in place before it rolled towards the ten pins standing at the end like a bulls-eye. The tall thin man placed his one gloved hand on his mouth as he watched his ball. It soon reached it's goal and hit the pins with a loud thundering noise as all ten went tumbling down.The tall man began to jump up and down and even did a cartwheel. His cartwheel was very unstable as his owned red and black blowing shoes slipped on the ally floor. Once he was back up again the man sat down to see his score. A flashing 300 lit up the screen above him. It was in fact a prefect score.A boy walked by and shook his head. "It doesn't count if the bummers are up, Andy."The man used his non gloved hand to remove his black rimmed glasses and rubb
