Hi. I’m Eric…

and I’m a PC.

Stories

  1. Waiting Up For You To Rescue Me

    Knock. Knock. She stands alone at the door. A doorbell goes off. Rain falls. She stands outside, alone. Walk away? Thoughts are processed, seconds allowed to pass. Decisions are made. The door is tested, found to be lacking an adequately prepared locki...

  2. Another Shot

    Another shot of whiskey, now he can’t stop looking at the door. He blows on his fingers, warm air rushing over slowly numbing tips. The goddamned pilot light was out again. He flips the switch at the top of the basement steps. No response. He ope...

  3. Must End

    The Champ swallows hard, pushes it all back. This isn’t a time for sad memories of dead daughters, dead wives. He launches a vicious jab at the other guy’s face. This is a time for vicious jabs. He didn’t come all this way to lose. He...

  4. That Begins

    The Champ was standing. His eyes swim for a second, pause, and then return to their former place of residence. He blinks twice, nods to indicate his sense of self awareness. Two seconds after overcoming his first challenge, he’s met with a second...

  5. Swift as a Shadow, Short as Any Dream (Mature)

  6. From Matt To Tim (Mature)

  7. Glass never bends

    I don’t remember much. Where I was, how I got there, gone. I can vaguely recall the sensation of wet. Not like a spilled drink, more like a flood, more like drowning. I think I died. I do remember everything after waking up, so I guess that’...

  8. Everything

    He was going to be the Champ. It started with a push up. Real simple, up, down. He used to do 100 of them every day, and every push became easier. Today he just wanted to do one. And he almost made it. Maybe it was the gun shot, maybe it was the car cr...

  9. Every Park has a Theme?

    For a creative writer possession of the ‘truth’ is less important than emotional sincerity. He needed to figure out how he felt. Every story revolves around some central concept of the human condition, and his life was a story. Moreover, it...

  10. Decaffeinated = Homocidal

    His head slumps, eyes welling with tears. He was just tired. Too many hours at work, house occupied by family, time occupied by nothing. He was just tired. A cranky two year old and aggravating older brother were not the people he imagined sharing a be...

  11. Matthew Gold in 25 Years

    Me in 25 years? I dunno, hairdresser? Make-up artist? C’mon Mrs. Bishop, you have to do better than that. Can you name one kid in this class who knows what they’re going to do after college? Can you name anyone who knows what they’re ...

  12. I Can't Remember What I Fought

    I used to be a sword. A long polished blade, a hilt made of steel wrapped in black leather. A simple tool, summarized in a simple sentence. And yet, somehow, I have become different. I can hardly remember breaking. A moment of pressure like any other, ...

  13. I Can Try

    I never thought of myself as a savior… He gasped for air, swallowing salvation in husky, rapid breaths. It almost hurt to breathe. “Two months? It’s been two months, and now you get here? I’m sorry, were we not worth saving, did...

  14. Thor

    Thor fell against the wall, his blood leaving long traces of warm down the side of his face. His body was hollow, burnt out, but his heart fought furiously against the stern call of sleep. He didn’t have much, but he still had his vengeance. He w...

  15. Desk# 7: Matthew Gold

    Matthew didn’t move as the bell rung, he couldn’t. He was in shock. Was Heidi blushing? She’d better not break the pact. Matthew and Heidi were best friends, had been since the 2nd grade. She was his first kiss, first date, first brea...

  16. Strawberries

    Does it smile as the sun glistens off its skin? Given mouth, would it sigh as their water washes over the green leaves of its hair? Is there comfort in its numbers, solace found in the presence of other strawberries? I cannot help but wonder. Does it f...

  17. Did You Get My Message?

    Hello? Can you, can you see this? Thank god, I’ve been alone for so long you have no idea- sorry, it’s just really good to know someone’s out there. You are out there right? You can see this? Just say something, type a word or a smile...

  18. Not Getting Warmer

    Crowded streets all cleared away one by one Ravi opens the door, a bottle of something potent and wicked clenched in his hand. The scent drifts passed Amber’s nose, and it infuriates her. She grabs the bottle and he takes her by the throat, drags...

  19. Only Two Creatures On God's Green Earth Kill For Sport

    “He was a quiet boy. Not quite two, fair skinned, blue eyed. His mother’s child in every conceivable form of the word. Too young, too sheltered to be afraid. He let it in, let it lick his face, cried as it-” Even now, even looking at ...

  20. 232

    I cough, choke on black soot and gasp for air that tastes like sulfur. The loose beams of wood lay heavily on my chest. I push them off, pick myself up. I stumbled into a world of ash and flame, and then I slip, no slipped… I lose track of tense....

  21. Oceanic what!? (Mature)

  22. The Seek Button On The Left

    The shards of glass pierce his sternum and embed themselves in the right ventricle of a now useless organ. Chris Daughtry’s Pokerface cover plays on a CD he was embarrassed to have in his car. The brakes become purely decorative as the car hydrop...

  23. Oh, to be bilingual

    I didn’t know I was swaying. She spoke to me from the microphone, alone in a smoky club filled with men who knew every word. I didn’t know their meaning, but I knew their intentions – she was unmistakable. “Suerte que despierto ...

  24. Comin On Fast

    The Night smiles smugly, proud of her temporary victory over Day. The hour is late now, too late for clocks, too late for minutes to make any difference. She knows that the end grows near, and yet still she lingers over the sleepy town, drinking in the...

  25. Beekeeper

    She says, “This is my friend Krillin. Give him a kiss!” I am not a girl. I am an uncle. I do not kiss “hims.” I kiss him anyway. She opens the refrigerator and grabs the box of Capri Sun. I take it from her and put it back. She ...

  26. Define Mosaic

    It tasted like cherry coke and vodka. It sounded like Matt Nathanson. It looked like tissues, dried and crusted. The handtowel was blue, slightly damp, but drying quickly. The lyrics were soft, the taste was potent. It tasted like a white flag. The mus...

  27. Everything That Ends, 3

    He approached his downed foe for the second time, but now he moved with an air of caution. He knelt over the man, and reached for his hood. As his fingers connected with the fabric he felt the color drain from the room, and soon found himself kneeling ...

  28. Everything That Ends, 2

    Thor’s fist collided with his attacker’s exposed abdomen, and the room was bathed in intense heat, a brilliant white light, and static. The thunder God’s hair stood on end, and the intruder crumpled to the floor. Thor approached, smil...

  29. Everything That Ends, Must Begin

    I have dreamed such dreams. His eyelids touch softly as he reclines, his curtainless window providing an unfettered view of Asgard, and all its beauty. In his dreams, he isn’t sitting on some glorified arm chair in a private room, he is sitting o...

  30. Right Beside You

    If I had to, I would put myself right beside you Amber knew she’d never forgive herself for leaving him behind, but alone she stood no chance against the soldiers. He told her to leave him, and even smiled when she left, smiled! Did he really thi...
