    “You know,” Irene said, taking a sip from a bottle of cheap, two-year-old tequila- the only thing her ex had left in their apartment. “We had a dog when we were kids. It was the sweetest thing in the world.” She was pacing, leaving tracks on he...

  • I Can't Stop Myself

    They took me away. I’ve left. Gone away. Disappeared. Vanished. I’m no longer where I was, I’m in a new place. I’m stuck in a cell. Locked up, pinned down, held back, chained to the wall. It’s not that different than my pa...

  • Into the Deep End

  • The First Convert Is Always the Hardest

    The diner was a step down from Waffle House, a dreary place where automatons will sell you a $0.30 cup of coffee. Not the kind of place where you expect to meet the messiah. “Last night I had a dream.” Frank explained. “I’m stil...

  • I Have, Like, A Totally Awesome Dream

    His father had always called him a dreamer. The good kind. The kind that has a glorious vision of the future and strives to bring it into reality. And the old man was right. Coming off a massive sugar rush the likes of which no human had ever before su...

  • Woe Betide the Gatekeepers

    As children know their drunken father’s footfall at night, so angels know her tread and weep, helpless, despairing as the axe cleaves in twain the monolithic gates to the Underplane, sealed and hidden at the heart of heaven, long before the time ...

  • Obsession: Revealed (2)

    No no no! He’s not, he can’t be.. unless he’s— “Gay.” I accidently say aloud. Jared shoots me a ‘what-are-you-on’ look. “Um, are you?” “NO! What the hell, Gabe!” he sounds disgusted that I would even ask. I don’t ask t...

    “Hold up one sec,” I try to process this, “Are you saying he hurt you?” “Yes, I am. I’m here to warn you, Gabe. I know, its random, but I needed for you to be alone and found you here,” she pulls her shirt back up and walked away. Wait! D...

  • House Guest

    The cloud of smoke thins. For the first time, I see my captor. He is standing across the room, and his features are a blur. The hair is a mucky brown, the skin a pale olive tone: his outfit, an assortment of dark gray. I struggle against the rope that&...

  • "Mom" of the Day

    The doorbell? Now? Ugh… What else is going to come up? I have to go to the barbers now that lovely Jamie got gum in the baby’s hair. I’ll have to call a cleaner to get that orange stain out of my chair. How those sweet potatoes got there I do...
