  9. wishes

    This wasn’t how I wanted it to happen. I’d concocted some heroic scene in my mind, one in which people are trying to do things I knew were wrong and I in a blaze of self sacrifice and glory save the day, but lose my life in the end. Another...

  10. the most dangerous weapon of all (2)

    The book was not special, as books go. It was not a book of sacred religion, or of discovered science. It did not explain things that were or things that had been or things that could be. It was merely fiction. Lies. Made up things that would never and...

  17. Late Arrival

    Tammy Lecrae was currently very irritated because she was standing at a bus stop and the bus was late. Her deep brown hair tumbled past the chin-high popped collar of the beige trench coat that she wore. The coat was long enough that the tops of her kn...

  18. music is a place
