                                                          SHOTS FIRED   James Connolly never wanted to be a police officer. However, after receiving the final results of his G.O.A.T. evaluation the powers that be had made the decision for him, much to his dismay.

Our Last Time

A sweet memory.

It was just after midnight on January 1, 2008. The sound of revelers and slow moving traffic going around the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile down the Champs-Élysées drifted up to our room. Carol and I stood on the balcony of our hotel room in Paris, France watching and listening to the fireworks over the city skyline. It was our last time together as friends and lovers. In two days, we would...Read On

Skyline City

Kendra ate about half of a dinner plate of the homemade Chinese food, long before Jayden finished his own. They both sat on the living room couch watching the original Jurassic Park that was playing from the flat-screen TV mounted on the wall; the final moments of the climax took place just as Jayden finished his last bite of fried rice. He had seen the movie so many times he could quote...Read On

LousyNick's Guide To Becoming The Ultimate Fighting Champion (Kinda)

A coward’s early steps on the road to enlightenment...through regular beatdowns.

As we get older, we tend to forget a lot of things. How to build the perfect pillow fort, say, or how much fun it can be to climb a tree. Or just how much getting punched can hurt   See, for most of us, as we get older, we start to concentrate more on finding a job, making some money, keeping a job, buying some nice things, taking a break from the job, going on a little vacation. The older...Read On

Vampire Justice Part 26

Time to get Carlo and Molly trapped into an illegal position.

The two VJS cars formed a V shape across the entrance with the car's front ends pointed together facing the estate. Any attempt by a vehicle to leave the property would not happen. Eran and Kevin watched the grounds. The building lit up as the men moved into the upstairs area. Molly moved them to one of the spacious spare bedrooms. As Molly walked through the estate, she sensed that she was...Read On

Route 66 Stormy

dark clouds in the distance

Route 66  Stormy  As the wind changes from the east to the north. The road trip continues, the journey continues. Black clouds forming, touching the road ahead. In the last three miles, the temperature drops ten degrees.  One, two, three bolts of lightning dance across the road ahead. "Next Gas 3 miles Ahead"  As you pull into the station hail comes down. Pounding the windshield...Read On

Kindred Spirits, Distant Hearts. Chapter 3

“I couldn't bear it, Maria. I couldn't bear to lose you as well, I just couldn't."

Munchen-Pasing. April 9th 1941   Maria's homecoming had been a very emotional affair. Although her mother and father had been informed that she had been found alive, that was all they knew. They didn't know where she was or when she would be coming home, indeed even if she was coming home. Her arrival on the doorstep was such a relief that even her father could not keep his tears...Read On

The Break Of Dawn

The dawn is coming ...

The moon is full tonight. Black clouds gathering above as the cold winds blowing outside. Chill runs through my body. Warm hand caressing my back, inviting me to curl up. Gathering me in his arms for a warm kiss on my head and hold me tight. His black wings enfold me.  "The dawn is coming; I have to leave soon." With regrets in his voice. Trying my best not to break down and cry, I wrap...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XXIV

Claudia and Mr. Vukan go on a second expedition.

Entry XXXI – At dawn, Mr. Vukan and I left the Priory to begin our second expedition together. It was I who suggested that we travel westward since we traveled east on the 13th. He had playfully asked me if I was hiding any secrets to the west, similar to his secret in the east. I told him of course not, and that I have not been farther than the Priory, Sigtuna and the lake during my...Read On

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 5

“No, this creature is helpless and alone, I want to keep it! I think I'll call it Wigit.”

The next morning Ella woke up and yawned mightily stretching out her arms. She hadn't slept so well in a very long time. How she knew that, she didn't really have a clue, just that she felt good.  She sat up and looked around. She seemed to be in a forest of sorts and her bed which was under a large oak tree was made of grass and moss. As she thought about it, a small man carrying a pile...Read On

Behind The Clouds

You shouldn't go out...

"Come with me, My Love." "Where to my lover in the mist?" "To a place where no one will bother us." The moon is full, covered by the black clouds. Darkness envelops the lovers as they walk hand in hand going to the center of the forest. Where they kissed amidst the chilling winds blowing, carrying the smell of roses.  When suddenly he howls in pain as if he is breaking, crushing bones...Read On

Grave Language

It's a Dad's responsibility to teach them right...

I recognized that look. That distinctively mischievous grin of a Cheshire Cat. That smirk of having swallowed Granny’s Tweety Bird. That poorly hidden giggle of having released, in the back seat, a silent killer with hopes that blame would befall his sister. The boy was bursting at the seams. He wanted to tell me, but was unsure he should. However, he had to tell someone, and the other...Read On

On Warding Off Would-Be Witnesses

How she made them go away without being rude.

Becky  Lee Tyler had thoroughly enjoyed trying on the new lingerie with its sheer baby-doll top and ridiculously skimpy, matching panties. The special birthday present she’d ordered for her husband had just arrived. After an extended period of fiddling with the gossamer outfit, and trying out different poses in front of the bedroom's full-length mirror, she knew, just knew, almost for...Read On

Simple Question, Another Poor Decision Dad Answer

Inquisitive young minds want to know, so do not mess with them or you will pay the humbling price...

“What’s wrong with her eye?” my daughter asked after noticing the receptionist’s eye patch. Temporarily ignoring her, I continued socializing with the ladies, focusing on the one informing us about her planned travels to Romania and a few neighboring European countries over the summer. “Romania?” The short girl beside me interrupted again. “Like Transylvania, Romania?” “Yes,” I politely,...Read On

Plains

The wanderer is awed by a thunderstorm rolling across the prairie

The storm was building in the distance, but there were stars directly overhead. I had sat out enjoying the warm evening and marveling at the wind waves through the short grass prairie. Evening comes with a storm building to the west. The blanket I lay on was still warm from the afternoon sun, and the only sound was the wind rustling the grass. I had been hitchhiking my way up to Mitchell...Read On

Working at the Vend

a sci-fi story about the artificial intellegence administration of a convenience store

Robbie punched the button for a bottle of orange juice with his right ring finger, a checking account, and tapped his watch. The watch blinked red and flashed ISF. He did it again and again with the same result. I can’t believe I’m out of cred . He pulled his screen from his backpack and opened the work page for the vend store he was in. “Dust mop floor,” was the task at the top of the...Read On

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 4

She knew that beast of a man would run her down.

Once horse and riders drew near the edge of the forest, they halted. Ella looked up at the wondrously tall trees. She had seen her fair share of forests in her travels, but nothing like this one. It seemed very ancient, and dark within. She shivered getting a sense of other worldliness. She frowned, wondering what kind of hazards could be in a Scottish forest? Maybe a few wolves? She shook...Read On

Queen Creek

Wondering if I have a choice if I stand my ground and if my voice will be heard? Holding on to the lessons hard fought and won in the past, with only you and I standing together in the city streets where the heat can be felt. Wondering at times who is the one clever and wise, and which one is the one telling all the lies? While sometimes it never stops raining and there are times when I...Read On

A Writer's Creative Process: Journaling

The longer version of this can be found on my website. Link is in the profile.

I am a grown woman that writes in her diary, and I’m not ashamed of it. I was given a diary at the age of ten, not knowing the purpose of having one. I didn’t have a lot of things to talk about, only how annoying people in my immediate family are.  Two years later, an assignment was given in class about journal writing, and I took to it immediately. During that summer, I bought a...Read On

Fishing Boat

One in a continuing series of a wandering man

"I need a job." The boat owner looked up at me for a long time. "Let me see your hands." I put the backpack down carefully against the pier and held out my hands. "You're no fisherman." "No, but I'm strong and work hard." The man looked at me as he took off his dirty Mariners hat and ran a dirty hand over the back of his neck. "You know mistakes kill you here." "Yep." "Well, my mate is...Read On

Vampire Justice Part 25

Trapping Carlo and possibly arresting Molly begins.

Everyone gathered in the large conference room for the night briefing. The wall of monitors showed the outside areas surrounding Molly's tavern front and rear. There was no activity, and reports from VJS security officers confirmed the same. Quinn brought Gwen with him to tell what she told Raven about the potential raid on the tavern. When she finished, Gwen slouched in her chair moving...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XXIII

Entry XXX – For once I am left speechless. Unable to find the words to tell you, dearest Reader, what I have just dreamt. I am numb, my heart is void of emotion due to the shock, and my mind is fresh with the images of it. Instead of telling you what I saw (like I planned before even opening this diary), perhaps it would be best to describe what I have witnessed in the dream: The...Read On

Vampire Justice Part 24

Gwen and Quinn get closer and Raven recruits Gwen's help.

After an easy ten-minute run, Quinn and Gwen broke out of the forest onto a large grassy plain. One edge had a small stream running through it with some large rock outcroppings, which Quinn climbed. Gwen followed and lay down in front of him. She switched back to her human form, while Quinn surveyed the area looking for predators and other animals. Seeing none, he switched back to human form...Read On

Claudia receives a book that may be able to help her.

Cold and bare she waits in filth, Muck dripped from her face, shuddered and dazed. Legs gashed and slashed, lacerated in pang and pus. Perverted to the sinful and the depraved.  ...Read On

Therapy

I just answered one of those calls that I get from the Vet Center the day before I go in for an appointment with my counselor. One of the nice things about having been in a war is that I get a free shrink for the rest of my foreseeable future.   I remember seeing Dr. Sydney Freedman on M*A*S*H when I was a kid. There was an episode where Hawk-Eye was sick with a cold, that was...Read On

The White Sutcase

evil lives in everyone. some people just let it out

This is part of a story I wrote for the writing group.  I was left the unenviable task of saying what happened to Alex when she was 15 years old,  what had happened to the young innocent girl that day ten years ago. I hope you enjoy it; I will be incorporating this into a larger story at some point.     I lay down on my sofa, my Analyst pulled up a chair and started making notes.   I...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XXI

Claudia and Jovan traverse the forests of Sweden.

Entry XXVIII – I awoke early in the morning to pack my satchel with a few traveling supplies. A small wool blanket, rope from the Priory Stables (I only borrowed, I have returned it now), a short canteen of water, and of course, my father's dagger. I was not sure of what else to bring for the upcoming expedition into the countryside, but from what Mr. Vukan said it would seem that I am...Read On

I just don't know

Shrug shrug

How did those maple leaves get in your bathtub? Meh.  I don’t know. Shrug shrug.   What would you like to have for dinner? Meh. I dunno. Shrug shrug.   Did you enjoy the movie last night? Meh. Sheesh. Eye roll. I thought the movie was rather boring and am thinking of making sushi for dinner. I wonder if I have any seaweed sheets. I need ginger too, of course. Wait! Where are...Read On
