Sure he was alone for the afternoon, Connor turned the volume up, sprawled on the sofa and closed his eyes.

            A trumpet fanfare filled the room. He loved the building sense of anticipation that sound always created deep within him. As the familiar theme assailed his ears, Connor’s outstretched arms and twirling fingers began to conduct an orchestra that only he could see.

            He was suddenly hit in the face by a cushion.

            “Oi! Turn it down!” Abby yelled from upstairs.

            Connor hastily removed the Stars Wars disc from the player and resolved to check for housemates first, next time.

LOL! Poor Connor :-) Just his bad luck Abby's at home.

She may have *said* she was going out, but he probably ought to check first. Silly boy.

Abby ought to let him wallow occasionally. Just maybe he should wallow more quietly!

Hee! Oh Connor...

Although I probably wouldn't have minded... *g*
madscribbles From: madscribbles Date: May 27th, 2009 11:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I certainly wouldn't have minded. I have a remixed version of The Imperial March on my iPod LOL.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 28th, 2009 04:52 am (UTC) (Link)
I wouldn't have minded either. I have the soundtracks to all three original films, and the Phantom Menace as well.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 28th, 2009 04:51 am (UTC) (Link)
me neither. Although Abby probaby has rules about no Star Wars while she's in the flat or something.

Hee, thanks. He's a silly boy, he really should have checked first. Typical Connor.

LOL!!
That's brilliant and very Connor!

Connor would so love to wallow in his own personal geek heaven, if only Abby would let him have the house to himself occasionally!

Aw. Bless him. Abby can't understand the deep stirring that music gives him ;)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 28th, 2009 07:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Abby just doesn't understand about Star Wars, and will probably resist all attempts to 'educate' her about it. Poor misunderstood Connor.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: May 28th, 2009 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
He can educate us any time, right? *veg*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 28th, 2009 07:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Definitely *grin*. Although, after I wrote this last night I dug out my Stars Wars - A New Hope cd and it's what I'm listening to right now. So 'educating' probably isn't actually necessary! (not that I'd complain, of course!)

HeeHee.. he really should have checked first.. esp. if he was going to conduct!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 29th, 2009 07:05 am (UTC) (Link)
He'll know better next time. Silly Connor.

Ha. Nice. Tis so them, really could see this being in the show. Though I wish they'd get together, tis really annoying me now, and I don't even ship them. Well not really... Well done once again :)

thanks. It's never peaceful in the Abby and Connor household, is it?
