Re: Intervention

and entirely unlike a razor. :)

However, note taken and accepted. I need to be better with my nonsensical terms.

Intervention

The envelope lay next to the razor. Elise had given him the envelope a year ago, before she’d disappeared. One day, she’d said, he would follow her on the journey. The moment it became too much, she’d said pleadingly, he had to read the message. Wiping his eyes, he cut open the envelope. A small int...

The Talk.

The son held the mask in his hands, looking as if he were about to throw up. “-You’re- Captain Awesome?!?” His father nodded, smiling. His son had grown, becoming more a reflection of his own youthful days. “Yes, I felt it was time…” “But you –can’t- be. You don’t understand…” The father nodded, pul...

Playtime

“And he can punch through steel, and he can fly and he protects the city!” The boy sat with his dad in the main room of their tiny apartment. He held his brand new Captain Awesome figurine like a cherished treasure. His father smiled, watching him play. “So what’s his secret identity?” “No one knows...

Payback

The alchemist sat glumly on the stone floor tapping at the edge of the chalk circle. It’s not that he didn’t want to leave, but his legs just didn’t want to go past the edge. Beyond the ring were walls that operated two dimensions further than his eyes allowed, painted in the chartreuse of madness. ...

Chase

The intern stared up the length of the Chase Tower, swallowing. The curve of it swept up high past the Loop. “I can’t do this.” “Put your hands on the building. What do you see?” The intern leaned forward, staring up the length of the concrete, his heart racing. The curve of the building created a f...

Red chip. Blue chip. Bad boy. Good Boy. The chips are counted every single week. Red Boy gets the belt. Beaten within an inch of his life. Blue boy gets an M&M. Start again next week. Red Boy gets chips for being girly. For loving his mother. For being kind. Blue Boy gets chips for being tough. For ...

Can I Keep it?

“Can I keep it?” He stared at the thing on the floor, cheerfully enveloping half of a sneaker. It moved like a protoplasm, but was covered in soft russet fur. He tried poking at it, but It wobbled threateningly. His daughter, though, was able to pick it and the shoe up without a problem, while it bu...

The last, best, trick.

“It’s a tough trick,” said the magician, rolling his sleeves. “Most people use a wax bullet. Palm a bullet in the mouth, when the bullet is fired, it disintegrates in the air, and you pretend to catch it in your teeth. Mine requires more skill. Control the powder, reduce the velocity, and time it –j...

She sat on the edge of the lagoon, wiping her eyes, looking down at the paperwork. Twenty months of waiting, and it all came down to a single piece of paper, stamped, sealed and signed. She had been to court, she pleaded her case. A rabbit hopped over to her, nudging a daisy. “You can always reapply...

Deadline

She stared at the blank sheet of paper. She tried to open its secret with music, chiming spheres, and countless cans of red bull. But her clock read that she’d been at this too long, and she would have to face the consequences. She scribbled a sentence, stuffed it in her bag, and cycled it over to h...

Springtime

The spring rains had ended, and the forest of the Great Valley bloomed. Coyotes wandered, stalking the peacocks as they made their mating calls. Palms grew with conifers, and fresh flowering plants grew through the cracks in the vast grids of asphalt. Vines covered the towers as swallows made their ...
