Elmer awoke disoriented under the blinding lights of the emergency room bay. Many people buzzed around him. “Mr. Beryl, do you know where you are right now?” said a voice, as his eyes slowly adjusted. “Wha hawppen?” he slurred. “Do you remember the parrot? You're in the hospital.” “Am . . . I alrigh...
You had wanted to marry Robert, but when his son Richard got pregnant, you had to marry him. Now Bob's your uncle. You live in a small, isolated agricultural community, don't you? that reply made me laugh. also, before I even read the stort all I could think of was Doctor Robert. he's the one to call

The city feller said he didn't know a poisonous snake from a hole in the ground, then he never came back from the outhouse.
Crime scene cleanup in one of the hardest professions in the world. Most guys last four to six months. I've been at it nearly eight years now. There's no community college course for scraping dried brains off the walls. I'm self taught. I'm the best. Believe it or not, the worst cases are the ones t...
Three by air. I don't mind that they're unexpected - important part of humour. Alternative histories are always enjoyable. Now let's picture a Britain that includes Dinosaurs and mammoths amongst its war machines, perhaps a Germany with dragons and Canada with armies of Sasquatch. Monsieur, are you...

“I didn't know Dr. Scholl's made tv dinners.” “Don't be such a snob; it's all we've got right now, ok?” “I was just talking—” It was getting hard for the both of them. Being poor isn't easy, but it was also new to them. And it was all so new. Tourmaline and Sapphire had had ups and downs like anybod...
Whoa, what? I had no idea about some boat. The only relation is that I plan on naming my next few character after gem stones (guess I spoiled the surprise).SpareInch wrote:Any relation?unseentangerine wrote:* "she" is Amethyst, just so there's no confusion
Her lies give her away—beautiful lies. I know how happy she is truly, what a wonderful gift I gave her. Ah, but she is young, and her pleas and tears will someday be sorted out to reveal her love for me. As for me, a torrent of ardent lust washed away any restraint. I admire her prettiness, I see he...
This one has me puzzled (not an uncommon event). First, there's the name "Citrine" . Before reading the Drabble I looked it up. Apparently , "The gemstone Citrine is the official birthstone for the month of November as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the...
Citrine chatted among event-goers with cool, calculated precision. No one saw the conspicuous lump near the inseam of her left thigh wriggle its way down her pant leg and poke out a curious, furry nose. The agent of clandestine acts, well trained by harsh and intense means, bounded away in the playf...

I'm very sad because I had been looking forward to this story forever, because of the drabble prompt and cat with blue fur story soon to follow and whatnot. Well, I got the "twist" in the story the moment the character asked, "Why do you think someone hacked my computer," half way through. :a little...
For hours I grind. Slicing one after another after another. With one arc of my scythe another mob disappears, and a few more pieces of gold jingle in my coffer. My Webcutter is nice, but a Webcutter +1 is 0.1 seconds faster, and 100,000 pieces of gold more expensive. I would make my own, but what I ...
