Direct sequel to Binding but this makes sense as a standalone.

I knew I was doing the right thing.

I just wish it didn’t have to hurt so much.

It was strange, hidden in the heavy rain, body wound tight like a cat about to pounce, watching the mobsters and gangsters move across the oil platform. It was my first time I would be doing anything like this, yet my mind couldn’t escape the fact that I had hurt someone.

The Suit wasn’t made for me; it was made for the world. We, as a team, wanted to save the world, so we designed a suit that could protect anyone no matter the cost.

I stole it because he scared me. There was this look in Hector’s eyes that didn’t seem right. This greed, this insatiable thirst for something he was too scared to say out loud, and of course I understood that. I wanted things for the world too.

Two Scoops

It was Ice Cream Day and everyone in the high school cafeteria had been treated to delicious ice cream, and this warmed Donnie’s heart so much that he secretly cried in front of the lunch lady as she ladled it to him. But his tears quickly turned to dismay as he realized that he only had one scoop.

He was a big guy and for his tremendous gut to be taken care of, he would need two scoops. But he didn’t want to say anything and make a scene, so he shuffled along with the other students.

Five minutes into lunch, Donnie forgot about his quarrel with the cafeteria staff, partially because he was dimwitted and forgetful, and partially because he was incredibly out of touch with his feelings.

Donnie liked lunchtime because he didn’t really have to talk or think or do anything really. He could just shovel food into his face and not even care. Because when he was with the boys, he was the King of the Cafeteria.

This is the 50th post on this blog so I decided to put together a self-reflection piece on where I am in life right now.  A bunch of my old characters show up but you can read it out of context.  If there’s an underlined thing, that means it’s a link to that character’s story.

My depression hit me really hard this year and if it wasn’t for some of my wonderful friends and this blog here, I don’t think I’d be alive.  Honestly.

So thank you so much for being part of this and I really hope you enjoy it. Continue reading “Katrinick”

A Kitten Named Ariadne, She Died, She Died

I found a stray kitten wandering outside my apartment complex
She was so curious and pawed at everything her little body would allow
Climbed to places I would never dare
Even though they were just two feet off the ground

Something in me was struck
So I tried to save her

I followed her around, coaxing her to get into this box
So she could be warm and safe that night
And failed and watched her fade into shadow
And had nightmares about her safety

The Wizard Who Knows All Forms of Magic But Prefers to Make Dramatic Well-Thought Out Entrances and Whoop Ass Instead

Direct sequel to this but this works out of context.

Wizards are a fragment of popular cultures and they are known for one quality: being wizardly.

It would be bereft of me however to discuss the topic of what it means to be a wizard. I, as the author, assume your knowledge of wizards and such lore, and request to proceed forward with our story because first off, this is a story about no ordinary wizard and you might as well throw all your expectations out the window. But it is important to be reminded of their lack of proper wizarding, and because this is a tale of comedic blunders and scuffles, and for the pacing to come out correctly, I apologize, but the first thing to be banished from this piece must be the discussion of proper wizarding.

How to Get Two Free Samples and Maybe Learn a Little Something About Yourself Along the Way

“Hey, Kyle, I—I screwed up, my interview is in like five minutes, would you mind hanging out here ’til I’m back?”

Kyle blinked, looking over his glasses to see his twin sister, Lily, in a tizzy.

“Yeah sure,” Kyle smiled, leaning back in the food court chair.

This was in fact ideal for Kyle. He had already lodged himself perfectly in the middle of the food court between Burger King, Sarku Japan, Panda Express, and Charlie’s Grilled Subs. From this clutch vantage point, he could easily observe the going-ons at each chain, finding the perfect moment to strike.

“Can you hold my new dress? Sorry,” Mia chattered, tossing the dress onto his face, readjusting her wardrobe to look more professional.

Tide Goes In, Tide Goes Out

Prompt was to base a story off the 14th image in one of your albums.  I’ll show you the photo at the end.

The waves rolled in and out, soothing the ear as they swept back and forth, like sand in a bottle falling from one end to the other.

I looked up at Francesca. She had been holding my hand, guiding me across the coastline in silence for a long time. Was she quiet so she could better embrace the glory of the ocean? Or was she scared of being heard?

When I gazed into her eyes, she seemed so far away. Lost in a storm, the lightning crashes illuminating her eyes.
