Rosa and Adam met in the window display of "Fredrick's of Hollywood" during the last major LA riot. He had been looking for a camisole his girlfriend had liked on their last visit and found her arranging the mannequins in obscene poses from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." They ended up having sex on the prep table at "Carl's Ribs & Chicken BBQ Shack," after breaking a few more windows and picking up some Christmas presents from other gutted stores. Rosa said the chaos made her hot and thrifty.

The next day Adam broke up with his girlfriend and moved in with Rosa. They've been together almost ten years. Now and then, when the fire engines roar past their apartment or a stray beer bottle smashes through a neighbor's window, they find themselves making frantic love on the kitchen counter, honoring the good things that came out of the LA ashes.

I enjoyed this quite a bit. Some really neat phrases in this: the obscene poses from RHPS and chaos making Rosa hot and thrifty. <--that little bit cracked me up, but that also could be because I just woke up a few minutes ago. heh.

The last sentence is the perfect close to this little vignette. Good work!

And welcome!
