First Fight - Ch 6 of 7

The first situation in life, where there is only one door way out. For this matter, a door way in.

My First Fight I honestly cannot remember what happens next or what I was doing before this occasion. This event just stands out of its own from start to finish. I will never forget this moment in my life. It was tragic, and there was something beautiful that comes out of it. I'll be gentle, I promise. Standing in the front of our gate of our home, I could see my little brother...Read On

The way

You are that called to create a new order. Turn and look into the eyes of those who strive to stay on the way. Offer your hand for help them to move forward, and thousands of hands will raise you until you touch the heaven. Gather the army of souls who are waiting for your signal to change the face of the earth and contemplate how the future surrenders to your desires for peace, love,...Read On

First Fight - Ch 5 of 7

The first situation in life, where there is only one door way out. For this matter, a door way in.

School Break The math teacher scribbles some numbers on the chalkboard. Each tap of the white chalk against the board and each drop of white ashes was like a count down to an execution. She's almost finished. Our eyes shake as we watch her scribble some scary numbers on the blackboard. “No,” she said. And she erases the blackboard again. “Let’s try something else we never did these...Read On

Asylum Ch.1

Insanity is the definition of fun

He spat in the guard's face and managed to shove him to the ground before two more restrained him. While he struggled and thrashed violently, he slammed one man against the wall and the other against a filing cabinet. You'd think they would learn not to try and take advantage of him. He may be crazy, but he sure as hell didn't bat for the other team. The warden's voice boomed through the...Read On

It comes from the Far East, and the Office of the Chief of Protocol has to prepare everything carefully. Kim Jong-un shows up an hour late.

I Know

I know why the night sings to me, And why the woods are my home. I know why the whip-or-will sings to only me, So I can dry my tears on my pillow more easily.   I know why I can't sleep anymore, But it took a lifetime until now to understand. My light stays on when I sleep, For I cannot fathom the darkness.   Angels watch over me, keeping me safe from harm. I needn't look over...Read On

First Fight - Ch 4 of 7

The first situation in life, where there is only one door way out. For this matter, a door way in.

Good Morning “Wake up Vincent,” said my grandmother. Envious of my little brother still sleeping on the straw mattress, the smell of mosquito coil is vacuumed out from the wooden balconies door. My grandmother placed in a wooden door stop. “Go ahead,” she whispered. I lift the mosquito net and walk outside the balcony. Rubbing my eyes, the sight of colors tells the sun still covered...Read On

The Mysterious Stranger

Mam and I have lived alone ever since Da died. I remember that day almost twenty five years ago as it were yesterday; there was a terrible storm and Da was outside fixing the tarpaulins covering the hay bales when a freak gust of wind uprooted the ancient oak tree beside the barn. Da was crushed under timbers from the barn and died a few hours later in hospital from his internal injuries. No...Read On

First Fight - Ch 3 of 7

The first situation in life, where there is only one door way out. For this matter, a door way in.

The House of Pain The old man smiles finally someone who bought the house has returned. He wonders if a jeep still there? With a mix of curiosity how he knows this without being there, how did he know of an abandoned front part of an automobile? For a long time now, it has been part of a wall of a fence. Weeds crawl on to it, and spider webs with dead skeletons of flies. I thought I...Read On

The New Kids on the Block   “Here he comes… run!” I shouted. And Nestor dodges Michael who was about to touch him. Nestor ran back to our base. “That was a close one!” he laughs. They already have three of our men. If Michael touches Nestor, it would only be me who is left. Either I would be caught then, or rescue my men back by simply reaching and to touch them. Unless for a...Read On

Dragons

Dragons Dragons flying in and out of clouds. I am the son of man.  Fearful of the unknown. Winds blowing breaking trees.  Fingers of fire light up the dark.  Roar of beasts roll across the plains. Dragons flying in and out of clouds. Old witch tossing bones.  Women scratching the ground covered in mud.  Hunters tighten their grip on spears. All eyes looking up.  As the land catches fire. ...Read On

Kung Fu Night Saturday night. The screaming kicks and the punches that keep missing against the head of an old master made the kids wants to join his school. Our leg’s skins against the cold surface of the shiny cemented floors kept us in tune. The delayed English words coming out of their mouth in between fights, swears how bad ass these fighters are. The Cantonese dialogs translated...Read On

Dancing to Ray Charles: Ch 06 Cards and Cuddles, pt 3 of 3

    All the ‘grown-ups’ were gone, but no one was interested in re-starting the card game. At Amy’s suggestion, the guys fixed something to drink while she grabbed some snacks. Provisions in hand, they went out into the warm night air on the screened-in back porch. To keep from attracting bugs, they left the lights off. Except for the glow from inside the house, it was dark. To no...Read On

Dancing To Ray Charles: Ch 06, Cards and Cuddles, pt 2 of 3

  The arrival of Amy’s mother, complete with an old photo album halted both their card game and the Interrogation of Willie.

Dancing To Ray Charles: Ch. 06, Cards and Cuddles pt 1 of 3

      Hearts, as played by Amy, Mark, Willie, and Bob was as much a contact sport as a card game. They’d all been varsity athletes in high school, were still competitive, and hated to lose at anything, including cards. The current debate didn’t center on the game, however, but which album to play during the next hand.   “Okay, y’all,” said Amy, addressing Mark and Bob while collecting...Read On

Vampire Justice Part 29

Molly's estate searched. Carlo captured.

Raven followed Molly into her office and quickly closed the door firmly. Curiosity appeared on Raven's face as she looked at Molly. Before Molly could speak, Raven asked, "What will they find in the rest of the estate, Molly?" Molly turned and stared at Raven. “You will just have to see for yourself. I did not build what is there. It came that way with the estate when I purchased it. And, yes...Read On

Cop Stories 5

Toward the end of my employment I was offered the opportunity to work the radio dispatch center. This duty was once only offered to officers that had suffered an injury and had been placed on restricted duty by a physician. It ended when some of the females began to take advantage of it and the full time dispatchers complained to their supervisor. It seems these officers just sat on their...Read On

Gargoyles and lichens

The gargoyle, hidden between two buttresses of the old cathedral, is cold. It has always been like that, ever since it was sculpted. When her creator carved her grotesque figure, extracting it from the stone in which she was kidnapped, she tried to tell him to have compassion and cover it with a mantle, even if it was light, because its orientation did not allow the sun to caress, as it was...Read On

Nightmare (part I)

I'm driving on a secondary road. It is a dark night, and the road is not lit. With each bump, the car’s headlights perform a strange dance in which for an instant the naked asphalt is seen, and then the trees at the side of the road which quietly watch my march. I'm rather tired. I have driven for more than ten hours to arrive in time for a meeting in a small town in the Midwest. I still have...Read On

Piety

He begged for pity, but he got no answer. He had fallen to the ground, unarmed, and the Crusader was about to cut his throat with a sword whose fist was embedded with emerald stones. He could also see the anguish in the crusader's face, his trembling hand and the decision to end his life. With the intensity that precede the moment of surrendering to death, he imagined other lives,...Read On

Shop shop til you drop

Shelley’s monsters are wailing at me like their lives are at stake, and this guy wants to talk about insurance. Oh, I’ll call him all right – no question. Thanks for the card. The brats pull me free. They lead me past a shoe store, a phone store, a jeweler. We go by a kiosk for t-shirts, a kiosk for hobby drones, a chattering pack of teenage girls, and now we’re near the food court. I...Read On

Ugly Monsters, Chapter Four

I was flipping through the channels today and stopped on the old black and white show about a family of unusual and most unattractive family of monsters. I'm not sure if I can name it or not.   What I didn't know was that my feet would feel stuck in cement and that I was as scared as a jackrabbit. The main character, in all of his glorious ugliness, had reminded me of my own stepfather.  ...Read On

Randy Thoughts & Stuff, #2

Last night, when I was saying my prayers, I asked God to make outer space a little bit smaller and to make everything in it a little bit closer, so we could visit some of those places without having to use, like, a trillion gallons of gasoline. That seems like a waste to me. I don’t understand why galaxies are so far away from each other. Talk about sprawl. ♦ As I’ve said, my paperboy...Read On
