“Reading is such hard work,” sighed Lydia.
Luke had his JOB papers and was industriously rolling a joint, laced with a special ingredient. He gave her a wink while his thumbs continued their maneuvers. “Quit yer bitchin’. You won’t be able to read after a few puffs of this magic dragon.”
“Ha! It’s just pot”
“Not just pot. Panama Red with a touch of Angel Dust,” replied Luke, waving the little cigarette to dry it. “Now finish your homework so we can get high.”
“But this is so boring!”
“It’s not that bad. I finished reading it last week.”
“I’d like to Thoreau this book away. ‘Pause! Avast! Why so seeming fast, but deadly slow?’”
Luke smiled at the pretty little brunette. She was petite but well-endowed with firm, round breasts. He has wholly approved when she burned her bra. She was willing to get completely naked in the backseat of his Le Mans on Saturday nights; Luke was willing to overlook the fact that she wasn’t an “A” student. He didn’t really mind that beneath her thick and lovely locks lay a very thick head.
“Ok. Light it up,” she said. “This next chapter’s called ‘Higher Laws’.”
Some days later, as Luke cooled his heels in his jail cell on felony drug charges, he would remember Lydia's last words to him with a certain irony.
