  • Resisting Arrest

    I see him coming. Well, I hear him first. Hard to miss a sonic boom, harder to miss a guy in red tights and a cape. I’ve got no excuses and a sack full of stolen cash and before I can hang my head in defeat I’m thirty feet in the air, held ...

  • Allegro con anima

    I watch him until he passes the Vaughan building. Stupid mook gets what he deserves, running out like that after getting just a taste. At least he’s keeping the big boy occupied. I take the rest of the boys down into the vault right as the charge...

  • Questions of a Cape

    I try talking to the guy but he’s not talking. I don’t know what it is with these people. They’re already caught. They might as well tell me what they did. Is it me? I cut an imposing figure but I’m not that scary. I need to che...

  • Score One for the Good Guys

    The perp had led us down every back alley and side street in this whore of a City, but he hadn’t lost us yet. I didn’t get to be The City’s Top Cop by letting piece-of-shit purse snatchers get away. He reached a fence and started to c...

  • Sleeping Dogs Lie part 2

    " I am justice — and her father!", he said almost inaudibly. The figure began to weep again, almost uncontrollably, as fear began tearing at his mind. Race shook is head disgustedly, balled up a rag from the floor and forced it into the...

  • The Passion That Overcame Reason

    The first day of Summer was uncomfortably sticky, drenching the courtroom in sweat. The judge’s bald head would have been shining, even in the dimly lit room, if it weren’t for his elaborate wig. “The jury has come to a verdict,”...

  • Templeton, Missouri

    And then there was the time that Ephraim Tate cut Slow Jack Blessing’s throat. Right in the middle of town and everything. There’d been words exchanged, of course. Slow Jack might have had a drink or two, and I know Ephraim was three sheets...

  • Spirits of remorse

    A chime. A sharp, unfettered sound coursing through the speckled leaves of autumn trees made him pause. Warily he turned. Watched. A chime. A second, deeper sound cut through the first, slicing deep into soil and undergrowth like a new honed plow. A ch...

  • A mile in her shoes (Mature)

    She pulled her coat closer around her neck and breathed out a puff of steam as the snow crunched beneath her shoes. Her socks were already soaked and she felt the keys in her pocket like ice against her fingers as she dug them out and shakily punched o...

  • The Devil's Embrace

    The glass of water shatters at my feet. The clear and cold rubble spikes my toes and streaks my glossy wet skin with blood. I back pedal feeling sick and dizzy. My legs shiver as weakness increases and my knees buckle under the weight of my body. I hit...

  • Dawn

    The screaming had stopped at last. The Land Before the Forest was nothing but a black skeleton of charred, wooden bones still smoking in the pre-dawn half light. You took my husband. You took my soul. You took my innocence. Now, you will take nothing f...

  • Red (Mature)

    I kill people. A lot. Like, all the time. But don’t get me wrong, folks! I don’t go around murdering people all willy-nilly. I kill people when they set out to hurt me or others. Physically or otherwise. For example, my first: I had a frien...

  • The End Of A Crime

    Cling. Cling. Pa-tink-tink. Pa-tink-tink. The hammer bounces on the red glowing steel, slowly stamping the edges around the sizeable chip that notched the otherwise smooth edge. The blacksmith, a craftsman of many years, regarded this with a wary eye w...

  • Justice

    Justice. Whoever had named this little rabble of dilapidated buildings must have had one hell of a sense of humor. Situated beneath what had once been a bustling inter-enclave highway, the only people in Justice were the forgotten and those that wished...

  • Colors

    The saloon was deserted; the bartender dozing in the heat. The doors swung shut on sand filled hinges, startling the bartender from his reverie. As the stranger takes a seat at the corner of the bar, the bartender coughs and waddles over to where the s...

  • Justice, Retribution, and Shut Up

    Beaming and struggling to contain excitement the younger fellow whispered inreverentially, “It’s a good day for justice, eh Big D?” Big D rolled his eyes, mostly on account of the fact that no other soul in all creation referred to hi...
