The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XXVIII

Claudia goes to the Prior for guidance on recent events.

Entry XXXVI – Now that I have more ink, I may continue with my writings. But, before I do, I must say that word of my particular bloody discovery has traveled fast throughout the Priory. There were students staring at me as I went into the supply room to acquire an inkwell. They whispered among themselves words I could not understand. Perhaps the young nobleman that tried to “help”...Read On

A Ghost Story

This is a true story.

I only did a short run last night. The day had been hot, and I had already run almost every day this week. Also, I was on call for work. Technically I'm not supposed to be more than 15 minutes from being able to get online in response to some technical issue with Nordstrom's credit card application system. Normally, this isn't a big deal. In the absence of some new software being pushed out,...Read On

Kindred Spirits, Distant Hearts. Chapter 7

“I'm sorry, Matron,” he said, unhappily curling his lip. “I'm afraid we have a problem..."

Munchen-Pasing. May 01 st, 1941   The drone of the three engines was too much for Maria to doze in her seat. It was set to be a long journey that had begun when a car had arrived to take her across the city to Riem where the new airport was situated, the same one at which she had landed when she returned from her ordeal in the Mediterranean. Although her transport had arrived...Read On

Two Weeks to Build a Bird

Julian bought the girl at an auction. Cheap. She was thin and small with auburn hair that covered half of her back. Her hip bones jutted out and her ribs showed. He could count her vertebrae. She was perfect. She was drugged and flown to his home in the countryside, where nobody could bother them. His maid tended to her, cleaning her, treating her scrapes and bruises, and brushing her...Read On

The True Story of Rapunzel

In a moment of impatient weakness, the witch cursed Rapunzel with...Read On

That Saturday Morning

This is a true story. It has been told many times and always gets a laugh. Now it was a typical Saturday morning at our house. It had to be sometime before Memorial Day because my parents were still at home, normally they are at our cottage. My mom who is a habitual early riser headed to the kitchen to make coffee and let the big orange and white cat up from the basement.   She opened...Read On

When he walked or rode about his kingdom, he would greet everyone with a cheery wave and a cry of ‘Good day to...Read On

Peace Talks

Would he and Amy soon be fighting like that Blue Jay and squirrel in the backyard?

 Sleep had been hard to come by. Mark’s mind kept going back to his bumping into Bebe at the dance last night and her agreeing to a date, then it would switch back two weeks to his kissing Amy, and how that changed everything, at least for him, then return to the meeting with Bebe. Just before dawn, he woke to the sound of his father leaving to go fishing on Big Bear Lake with S.J....Read On

Father Bicgock

Father Bicgock was making his rounds at the Chapel when he came upon Sister Margaret weeping. "What is wrong, dear Sister?" Bicgock asked, sitting beside her. "My hand," Margaret replied, "It is broken." Her left hand was in a sling and wrapped in a cast. "I had a nasty fall and broke it, but it doesn't hurt anymore." "That looks quite damaged," Bicgock said, "But why must you weep if you...Read On

Harborers of Hate

I don't know to free myself....

Hate gives us peace of mind. Knowing that we are feeling something relaxes us in a twisted, unknown way. Hate convinces us that it is all we have left. That, there is no fight left in us. That it will always be a bubbling misery that sits inside our minds, waiting to spread like a flame throughout our bodies. A black snake that slithers into our hearts, hell bent on devouring and destroying...Read On

Jack and Ellie: Chapter Three (The End)

"You are my today and all of my tomorrows." - Leo Christopher

Once Ellie had returned to her apartment building she slowly walked up three flights of stairs to the top floor where she resided in her studio. Each step was painfully slow, and her melancholic face never wavered. Once she reached the door to her studio, Ellie slowly turned the key in the lock and was greeted with darkness as she opened the door. Walking inside, she leaned against the door...Read On

Recompense - Part One

Another horror story in pieces....

"I want them beheaded," she announced amidst the staggered crying of the women.  "You want to cling to the barbaric ways of your heritage then you can appreciate drawing your last breath with your throat against the chopping block." More cries broke out, loud and pain-filled sobs that rang inside her ears. She would finally have the revenge she sought for so long. Recompense for the murder...Read On

After The Storm

It's pretty calm now, after the storm

The show went on. Billy Elliot the Musical had a run of six shows from February 24th through 27th, and March 3rd through 5th. We were sold out for all the performances. It was successful by anyone's measurement. And I completed the show.  We have a population of around 92,000 people in our town. Not too small, but even so it can seem rather small. One of the oncologists at my cancer center...Read On

Open Road

The wanderer takes a ride up the coast

I walked up from the Ventura River bottom where I spent the night. Nighttime in a homeless camp is very different, a strange mixture of camaraderie and distrust. Not unpleasant, but not great either. I was only interested in sleep without spending money. Short on funds, I decided that sleeping in the dry river bottom was better than an alleyway waiting to be rousted by the police.   ...Read On

Gillian and the Three Mole Stories

Mole Story One I can't recall when I first realized I had a mole under my arm. It was located in the center of my armpit. Early grade school is my best guess. For the most part, I was blissfully unaware of its presence. Doctors had assured my Mother that it was harmless and there was no need to remove it. It was in third grade that my awareness of it became more pronounced. In those...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part XXVII

Entry XXXIV – Would it be right of me to go back to entry one of this diary and cross out the line or two I wrote of wolves? I was wrong, as they are far from a glorious creation; they are, indeed, large and terribly ferocious beasts. I am forced to agree with what I have read of them. It scares me just to think of going back into the forest. What other creatures may hide in the fog?...Read On

Obituary

Something I started when told I had cancer...

I wrote my obituary today. It feels strange to write that, a surreal experience to say the least. How does one take stock of his life? If it is by money and status, then I am very poor indeed. If it is by the number of his friends, then I again fail. Did I have the most toys? Take the best vacations. Drive the fanciest cars? Will people remember me in one hundred years? The answer to all...Read On

Jack and Ellie: Chapter Two

"I want to be with you till my last page." - a.r.asher

Ellie looked around the café, taking in its surroundings. Paintings from various artists adorned the off white walls. Large circular dimly lit lights hung from the ceiling. Intricately crafted wooden chairs surrounded small granite tables. Lavender and white peonies in small circular vases were placed in the center of each table. And a small coat rack stood in the front corner of the café....Read On

The League of the Young and Supernatural (12)

Ch. 12 *Sakura* It was Denjo’s idea to wait until sunset to proceed with any plan of action due to the fact that he couldn’t stand the light and I couldn’t take much of the Earthen summer heat. That seemed perfectly logical until I realized that I had to linger around Denjo’s strange, barren mansion hideout for the rest of the day. I hadn’t lingered around and twiddled my thumbs for an...Read On

The Mohawk Cabin (Chapter 1)

Their lives crossed paths by unlikely accident in a time few now remember.

The wood-spoked wheels of the old Crow-Elkhart began sinking in the soft mud along the shoulder of Route 9W almost as soon as I stopped the car. I had just pulled off the macadam in a panic, at the sharp command of my father. Aunt Alma protested that she was alright, but she was looking rather pale, from what little I could see of her. A towering stack of luggage, all her worldly...Read On

Jack and Jill: Two Minutes

How would you spend your last two minutes?

**Legend has it, the greatest thief of all time spent two minutes drinking a glass of wine with his shadow after he killed his victim**. Jack trembled as he placed the gun in his mouth. Taking one last breath, he closed his eyes and pulled the trigger. BANG! Jack opened his eyes in shock. His gun misfired. Nothing seemed to be going his way. He threw the gun down on the sofa and made his...Read On
