  • The Options

    Weeks passed and Jennifer’s condition declined. Mark took responsibility, since he had a record, until we could sort it all out. His arrest was quick. Sorting it out was the problem, though. Things in the basement are hard to comprehend, our opti...

  • It Kills Me

  • Thunder and Lightning

    The soft pitter-patter of rain was the only sound in the oriental ghost town. On one side of the town stood the giant hulking figure of a sumo wrestler, on the other the wispy form of a ninja. It was a dream match-up, speed and agility versus power and...

  • Stairway to offramp twenty-seven.

    The French have a phrase for it, and it’s this: l’esprit d’escalier, the spirit of the stair. Well, Joan is on the freeway when it hits her – I should’ve told the little cow at check-in that I’d find seventy dollars ...

  • Friendly Fire

    The man sitting across the table from the Colonel looked for all the world like just another ordinary air force pilot. His uniform was a bit different; blue hues instead of the standard grey. Minor details, sure, but otherwise, the pilot looked just li...

  • Fly The Palace

  • Grim Company: Asymmetric Warfare II- Chaos!

    The twins engaged the fallen rider as it sprang to its feet. They danced together ebbing and flowing as naturally as the tide and spots of red began to appear with each strike they landed. Sahlina spun and pirouetted above the battle, lifted by invisib...

  • Grim Company: Asymmetric Warfare III- Danger!

    Of the nine horsemen, three were still mounted. Most of the others were unmoving lumps of dark cloth on the ground. Focusing on a single target, they wheeled their horses together and bore down on Elein. He looked around, eyes wild but there was nowher...

  • Trigger Event

    There was plenty of fighting. I was fired a lot. I did my best to try to hold my fire, or miss, or whatever, but like I said, it only used my brain. The part of it that processed visuals, I guess. As long as I could see, he could shoot at what I was se...
