I need to proofread and light editing of an 80-page (standard letter, 12-size font) prose.
It is a political satire.
Here is a sample:
The night was dark, chilly and rainy. The parking lot in front of the city Zoo was empty. The drip drop of the rain was the only sound.
Loel was sitting under a tree. His car was gone.
He was puffing out cigarette smoke, making smoke doughnuts, voicing his exhales. He was mumbling "Pur-su-it of hap-pi-ness" and "Pa-the-tic- lo-ser”. He was focused on making sure that the smoke doughnuts were punched by the mumbling at the right places and in sync with the raindrops.
He was sitting and mumbling for quite some time until headlights pierced the darkness. It was a tow truck, moving slowly, sweeping the lot with a light beam. It was searching for someone or something.
As the beam lit up Loel, the truck stopped. The door opened and the driver said:
“Looking for your car, sir? We’ve towed it. I can take you to the lot. Are you coming?”
“Are you coming?” yelled the driver again to get Loel's attention.
Loel extinguished the cigarette and got into the truck.
