    Hello, my name is Charlie and I am a pyromaniac. I used to just watch fire, for hours on end, watch it dance and perform, just for me. Then one day I picked up a lighter and never put it down. The flames cheered for me, and raised me up as their god. I...

  • Wendy's Lost

    “Charlie?!” No answer. I shot out of bed, oblivious to my nakedness in the mirror staring back at me. “Where did you go?” I wondered, reaching for the floral robe he’d bought for me; how long had it been. 5 years? 6? Wrapp...

  • Down in Flames

    I sat down after my speech in my Pyro’s Anon. meeting and pondered my life. I thought about Wendy most of all. She was so adventurous, throwing caution to the wind every single day. It was difficult to protect her from herself. I was always picki...

  • The Rampage

    My broken down, rusted old VW rolled gingerly through the Eastern districts of Las Vegas, away from the glitter and glamor of Sin-City. The zippo lighter in my left hand clicked open and shut, as my thumb absently ignited its meager flame. The sound of...

  • Calming The Storm

    The blast blew in a few windows and made all inside the old warehouse duck and cover. Charlie’s mind only had one thought, Wendy. He wanted to run, get away from her once and for all, but she’d kill everyone in here and go after him as well...

  • Let The Fire Judge

    I met Wendy as she came back up from the boiler room. “What did you DO!” I recognized the expression on her face. “It’s over Charlie.” “No. Yes. Wait, what?” “Charlie, you were the one for me. But you lef...

  • Magnum Opus

    As the aftershocks rattled the air, I looked at Wendy. The fire danced around her, pointed tongues licking her, but not consuming her. I was reminded of that day I saved her from her own home. I had dragged her out of the flames and neither us had been...

  • Thoughts of Escape

    Fifteen minutes into the ride I realized that Barkley is awfully talkative for who I assumed him to be. He just chatted on and on about every little thing with pretty much all of it just going through one ear and out the other. At the time, only one th...

  • Trade In

    “Mommy, mommy!” Seven kids rushed into the room led by my daughter. Breathless she ran, tiny shoes tapping against the hard wood floor, and threw her arms around me, trembling. “What’s wrong, Nadya?” “I didn’t ...

  • Tractors and Lost Children

    The bright afternoon sun barely penetrated the overlapping branches of the pine trees. The forest was dense and even though there was no wind, a cold chill permeated it. I rubbed my arms for warmth as I ventured deeper. “Charlie!” I called ...

  • Missing Charlie

    At the sound of his name, Charlie stumbled out of the bush in a daze. His shirt was on inside out, and he blinked a lot like he had just woken up. He looked at me hesitantly, as if he didn’t know who I was. I dropped the rock to pick him up, and ...

  • Redneck Revenge (Mature)

    “You! I’ll get you for this.” Charlie’s voice took on a dangerous edge, rolling thunder proclaiming distant lightning. The four birds watched, secure in their shit covered castle. “Now don’t you do something that you...

  • Gone to the Birds (Mature)

    “Goddamnit!” Charlie’s voice echoed from the barn. Even at sixty-three, he still had a booming voice, perfect for swearing. Martha finished drying the chipped blue plates that they’d used for lunch and put them away before headi...

  • Following His Heart

    It sucked being sick. The thickness of the summer heat made it worse. Charlie would rather be shivering in his blankets, teeth chattering, than feel like a bloated toad, sweating and miserable. A cough tore out of him and turned into a half a dozen mor...

  • A Strange Resolution

  • Charlie In The Sky

    I first saw Charlie in my youth. His wild demon eyes called out to me with a seductive stare that penetrated my soul, cracking the armor there. He sat at a table, stared out at me. Unblinking, he called me to kill, destroy anything, everything, beseech...

  • No Winners

    I threw my coat into the closet without looking where it landed and collapsed into bed as if someone had removed all of my bones at the same time. I didn’t want to do or feel anything. The whole night was ruined. All it took was a single off hand...
