B is for The Hand of Gordon (Act 10)

10.

“Brotherly love has been preempted. Do enjoy our replacement feature.”
It was called Wanton Lust. It was… Interesting.
“Interesting?” she said
He looked at the performance. It was fake. The situations were a filler; the acting was unacceptable and the actors…. They were clearly gymnasts. Maybe that’s how this all started out, he wondered.

Maybe they were great gymnasts who – sadly - could not get the funding they deserved,
because they couldn't secure enough points for the scholarship. No scholarship, no chance at success; no success, despair; despair turns to poor acting skills. But he could see full well that that spark of gymnastics was still in them. Clearly.
“Interesting.” She said
“Interesting?” he asked
She nodded. “I’ve also studied gymnastics…”

The remote flew over Gordon’s head as he followed her out of the room.
