    “Thriller! Thriller niiiiiighhhhhht!!” I sing out as we drive down the highway, top down on the car and the smell of rain in the air. “You’re entirely insane.” Sam laughed. “You thought any different?” I asked,...

  • The Final Soul

    “No one would ever expect to find it in a plain old jar. Seriously, look at it. There used to be strawberry Smuckers in it. It’s perfect.” He couldn’t believe the suggestion. There was absolutely no way that he was about to stor...

  • Fantasyland X

    “A trek,” Gloria’s small button nose scrunched up flaring like a prize-winning stallion. “Yes,” Carl said as he strapped the long sword to his side giving the leather one last snap to make sure it was tight, “a trek.” “To the capital, a...

  • Shhh, everything is going to be fine

    I woke up and saw Mr. Jones holding something on my stomach. I turned to see Will kneeling by my side and holding my hand. I could tell that he had been crying. All my friends were standing around me too, they had been crying too. I opened my mouth to ...

  • Too Stubborn to Die

    The driver had shown him what happened to Sera after he shoved her in the trunk, and he had panicked. The handcuffs were the only thing recognizable, the rest being an unidentifiable mess of dissolving bone and reddish goo. “Cooperate, or that...

  • My Sister the Car

    “But…what happened? He threw you in the trunk, and then…all that blood…” James trailed off. “Um…where are you?” “I’m in the car,” Sera’s voice said, coming out of the stereo speakers. James looked...

  • Transformation

    “Right now? Put as much distance between the body in that alley and us as possible,” Sera said. “I think I have an even better idea,” James said, and turned a corner. “I think the first thing that we need to do is change y...

  • Open Up and Say Ahh

    “Jamie…I don’t think it will work.” Sera sounded disappointed. “This thing only looks like a car. It has more in common with a tank. I don’t know if it even has a VIN.” “Well…we can still change the color, ...

  • Demands

    James walked around and got in the driver’s seat again, then pulled out onto the road. “Okay, I’d say the first thing we do is put some distance between us and, well, everything we’ve ever known. They’re obviously looking ...

  • Big Cars Don't Cry

    Sera’s voice faltered. “Actually, I…I think I want to be alone for a while. Just drive, OK?” “You got it, sis.” I can’t count the times I’ve driven my sister crazy, James reflected, but I never thought I̵...

  • Lifelong Ambition

    Immediately, his first thought was police, but the car was too small and too sleek. Area police drove Dodge Chargers, and the state troopers drove Chevy Caprice PPVs. Knowing this, he put his foot to the floor. “Sis, I’m… I’m so...

  • An Answer, and More Questions

    James climbed out of the car to meet the newcomer face to face. She was young—about the same age as he and Sera—with long brown hair, wearing a red leather jacket, slacks…and a gunbelt. James said the first thing that came to mind: “Who are...

  • Realization

    Sera growled. “Yeah, they had all the first responders on the force take some extra booster flu shot, lot of good it’s going to do me now.” “Sis, unless I miss my guess, that shot is probably the reason you’re still talkin...

  • Hobson's Multiple Choice

    “You’ve got two choices. Well, three, I guess.” The girl ticked them off on her fingers. “You can come with me back to Aegis regional HQ, you can try to fight us, or you can try to run away.” She frowned. “I can̵...

  • Decisions

    James looked to Sera. “You’re the one who’s got the most at stake here, sis, I’d say that it’s your choice.” “Way I see it, we’ve got no choice, we go with Lisa here,” she growled. “If we try ...

  • The Aegis Base

    A few minutes later, they pulled onto a private road with an armored gate and security checkpoint. Lisa and Fur stopped and talked with the people in the booth. James slid lower in his seat as impassive faces and cameras swiveled to examine them. Final...

  • No Disassemble!

    “Congratulations, I’m surprised,” James deadpanned as he took it all in, noting makes and models for future reference. “This kind of tech isn’t even supposed to exist yet.” “There are more things in heaven and ...

    Lisa was already out of her car and addressing the labcoats. “…can’t believe the nerve of you bastards!” James heard as he got out of the car. “Project Sugar is supposed to be in the experimental stages. Who gave you the right...

  • One Step Closer

    There comes a time when every shy geek must break, and these times are frequently heralded by inspired, polysyllabic speeches in the fashion of Jean-Luc Picard, had he spent more quality time with Leonard H. McCoy. James, for one, had seen more than en...

  • Wake-Up Call

    Lisa’s voice: “Good, he’s coming around.” James blinked his eyes open and looked blearily around. The room swam into focus. He was lying on a bed, in pajamas. Lisa was sitting in a chair by the bed. “Wha’ happened?&#...

  • Learning to Walk

    “What, and miss the chance to make themselves look like even bigger asses?” Lisa said, rolling her eyes. “Bro… those nanobots, they can be mixed in with just about any injection, so long as there’s enough of the liquid to ...

  • A Brief History Lesson

    “Great. So. Can you please tell me what the hell we’ve gotten ourselves into? Aegis…Marauders…car robots that…absorb people?” Lisa sighed. “It’s like this. A few years ago, someone finally cracked the AI problem. Not...

    He nodded, looking thoughtful, “I guess that makes sense, sort of, since a turbine will run on anything that’ll burn. I… Uh, I’m not all that certain I want to hear any more about it, though.” “Good, I didn’t w...

    “This is a Sig-Sauer P226. It will be your standard-issue sidearm. I won’t tell you you’ll eat, sleep, and make love with it, but you will want to keep it close to hand…” “This is a TASER. You’ll carry it when you ...

  • Going For A Spin

    He really tried to keep a straight face, but James was never the best at poker, and had to bite his lip to avoid a fit of giggles as they pulled up once the course was completed. Sera coming to a stop within a few feet of him was slightly unnerving, bu...
