The Call From The Deep

I held up my boarding pass and walked through the gate. My wife, Harper, was right ahead of me, and we both were so loaded with bags and suitcases that we could barely fit between the doorways. Our 10th anniversary was in a couple of days. We both had come into agreement that there was … Continue reading The Call From The Deep

Halloween Night

The portrait of Bob Marley was becoming hazy behind the smoke that was filling the room. I was beginning to zone out when I felt Mario tap me on the shoulder. He held out the bong and the lighter and was blowing huge smoke rings while filling them with smaller ones. I was grabbing them … Continue reading Halloween Night

Prophecies

I tried to act like it didn't bother me that nobody believed what I saw. I had been doing my best to maintain my façade of indifference. It hurts when the ones that you love are obviously concerned about your well-being, though. Especially when you know damn well what it is that you saw. "Honey? … Continue reading Prophecies

Frigid

I had always heard about how beautiful Colorado was at this time of year. I guess that would be considered a subjective opinion. To a South Texas guy like me, braving these types of temperatures was anything but beautiful. "Mark, are you still in there by the heater? Get your butt out here and eat … Continue reading Frigid

Look at Yourself

That pounding headache is back again. I don't know if it started before the pills or because of the pills at this point. All I know is they are the only thing that can make them go away once they come. Something strange happened as I was shuffling the lid off of the shoebox under … Continue reading Look at Yourself

The note in the mailbox

I was stressed and tired. Exhausted, to be honest. Just the same way I felt when arriving home on most days. I was glad to finally be home, though. Nothing helped to relieve the stress of another long day, like making my way home to my wife and our house that we were actually able … Continue reading The note in the mailbox

The Bunker (pt. 4)

The sheriff grabbed me by the collar after struggling to his feet. His six-shooter was held steadfastly against the small of my back. "Don't try nothin' stupid Ash. I'll put you down right by your old buddy here." He motioned to the body of the man who had been the bane of my existence for … Continue reading The Bunker (pt. 4)

Be Mine

"Alright kids, it is time to go around and pass out all of your valentines to each other. If everybody behaves well, we will be passing out candy from the teachers as soon as you are all finished."  Mrs. Marshall was speaking to all the 5th-grade classes of Tumbleweed Primary School in Tucumcari, Texas. We … Continue reading Be Mine

The Bunker (pt. 3)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbwyPfMyAOY&feature=youtu.be Listen to the narration by Viidith22 I clicked the lock shut on the Pastor's cage. We threw the body of his partner, Alan, in the cage across from him and locked it for good measure. Abigail was busy unlocking the cages of the other girls who were being held hostage below the church. I … Continue reading The Bunker (pt. 3)
