Raven challenge 73

Today I face another Raven's Challenge.
The words for this week's ten word challenge were: riverboat, procrastination, drank, demons, invisible, candle, enough, film stars, summer job, computer For the mini: general demeanor, surprisingly, masked man, reach, standards

Sandy Shore could not believe the call she received offering her a summer job with other film stars on a riverboat. She wanted that job so bad, none of the other jobs she had done held a candle to this offer. She must not procrastinate, but promptly confirm. She went to her computer and sent out her reply.
She was accepted. She wanted to celebrate, she poured out just enough diet soda into a cocktail glass, holding it up she toasted her good luck, and the invisible demons who brought her name to the director aboard the riverboat. Feeling on top of the world she drank down that glass. She was surprised when another glass was brought out from the cupboard, and some soda was poured into it, Then she saw that penguin, she named knight. Knight probably would be making this adventure on the river eventful she was sure.

The general demeanor of the director was surprisingly calm as he welcomed the actors, and actresses for his show aboard the riverboat. He was not taken aback by the masked man. The director began by giving an emotional speech about reaching for the highest standards.
Although the masked man did not bother the director, he made Sandy uncomfortable. She questioned to herself if that was because, the man reminded her of The Phantom of The Opera."
Sandy might be concerned about the masked man; the cast was unnerved by scenery seeming to be moving by itself.

Glad Sandy got an acting job. I'm sure Knight is - as she said - going to make an adventure of it.

Great stuff! Loved how you've made a coherent narrative with the words.

I liked your stories. I'm glad Sandy got to go on the riverboat with the film stars. It looks like the penguin is going to make things extra fun.

Sandy and her Knight are about to show us a lovely time, I am sure!

That penguin sure gets around does it? I wonder if it might get seasick on the riverboat?

I can't wait to read Sandy's and Knight's adventures on the riverboat. Sounds like fun.
