Chapter 5 - UncertaintySaturday, August 27th, 2011Moon Phase – Waning CrescentTo his surprise when he awoke the next morning, lying at the side of his bed was his helmet and backpack, the shattered deck still attached to it. Remembering that he had left them behind at the park the previous night in his haste to run, he expected his father to ask why he had done such a thing. As soon as he sat down for breakfast with a plate of pancakes, the questions came.“Son, why did you leave your things at the park last night?” In Alex's struggle to figure out an answer that would sound convincing, his stalling letting his dad continue. “Were you doing something there last night?”“I was just skating. I left when my board broke.”“So then, why did you leave it and your helmet there?”Taking a breath and gripping his hands under the table, Alex shivered. He knew the longer he stalled, the worse it looked, but he didn't want to tell them the truth. He couldn
Chapter 3 - First Day on the JobTuesday, August 23rd, 2011Moon Phase - Waning Crescent10:03 a.m.After waking up extra early thanks to Bailey, Alex finally sat down to talk to his folks about the incident after breakfast. He was at first hesitant to say much, as he had been the night before, but he slowly began to reveal more and more about what happened. He started recalling the gruesome details of what he had felt, the icy texture of Angela's flesh when he took her hand and how weak he felt as he watched her slip into shock. As he revealed more information, he could feel his eyes watering as the emotions he had held back before came rushing forward again. He was determined to not to act like a wimp though, even if he had a good reason to get emotional. He could handle this without breaking down into a nervous mess.“Son, I know you're upset,” David said after Alex sniffled for the fifth time. “but...you did...the right...thing.”Alex took several breaths before he answered.
Chapter 2 - "We have a 10-67."Monday, August 22nd, 2011Moon Phase – Last Quarter8:57 p.m.Taking a swig of water from a bottle in his backpack, Alex sat with his arms folded over his motorcycle's handlebars while he waited for Nathan to get his camcorder. Both it and his phone were capable of recording video in 720p, a standard video resolution for most amateur skateboarding videos, but the camcorder was better built for getting dim backgrounds. With the Last Quarter moon and fluorescent lights as their only illumination tonight, it was the better option.Turning his head as the evening breezes blew over him again, he heard the front door of his friend's house open and the two were soon on their way to the local skatepark. While it had once been a basketball court, local interest had gotten the city to rebuild it several years back after the installation of a steel fence around the pavilion.Turning onto the road leading to the park, Alex found a parking space as close to the park as possible and shut the
Chapter 1 - Of Comics and CompanyMonday, August 22nd, 2011 – Sugar Land, TexasMoon Phase – Last Quarter Listening to the voice of his potential new boss as he read off his application, Alex Stryker shifted in his seat and straightened his back a bit. Trying his hardest not to adjust the clip-on tie on his neck, he let his eyes wander a bit, looking around at all the stuff in the room. Boxes of comics, both new and old, stood stacked near the walls. From a number of them, he could catch the very familiar scent of comics that were yellowing and aging.“So, Alex, what can you offer me as an employee of this shop?” asked the person interviewing him.“I'm not sure yet,” Alex replied. His voice was one of those that would have sounded right at home on a talk radio station. Deep and clear. Thinking the initial answer sounded stupid, he continued on. “but I'll offer everything I can provide. Food and drinks if that's what it takes.”The final remark got the perso
Odyssey Into 2012 - Chapter 1Gazing around at the elaborate scenery for a second, Lilith turned her head to look behind her. The portal she had come here through was gone, which she found unsurprising yet unnerving. It had just appeared in front of her and she walked through it, acting on pure curiosity. It had taken only seconds, but here she was.But then she had to wonder. The atmosphere of this place. It was grand and majestic, with so many people walking about. And yet none of them had seen a swirling mass of 'magic' deposit her here? Why? Was she invisible?"Excuse me." the man Lilith spoke to looked her direction instantly. Waving her hand once, she saw the eyes of the man stay unwavered. As if he was looking through her. “Where am I?” The man responded in Japanese, which she didn't understand outside of Tokyo. However with more sets of eyes now looking in her direction, she was convinced she wasn’t invisible. “OK, great. More questions to answer.”Nodding to the man, rega
You're Not Alone (Slenderman X Reader) ch 17 Slenderman’s POV I finally come to my senses, but it is too late; the damage is done. __________’s body is dyed red from her own blood. Her skin is rubbed raw and is covered in long cuts and trails of bruises. Her collarbone is punctured with multiple bite wounds. I lightly run my finger over a bruise on her cheek. I can’t believe I did this to you. I never wanted it to happen like this. All I wanted was for __________ to love me back. I worked so hard to protect her. I worked so hard to become part of her life. I worked so hard to get the chance to hold her close. Now, it seems I have only been able to push her further away from me. The memory of her pleas ring through my head. I wanted to stop, more than anything, but I couldn’t. I watched as instinct took hold of my body, and I couldn’t do anything to stop it. All I co

If you like and have some constructive comments to share, please do so. Enjoy.-----------------------------------------------------Erin, Amy, and Tina exchanged nervous glances. They had just witnessed Kara turn into a giant chocolate-filled Easter egg and be hauled away on a truck to her new home as an oversized trophy for Bucket's foyer. Her sister Sara had become more egg than girl before she vanished down a dark chute, presumably towards the bakery. They hoped beyond hope that she would be spared when she reached Bucket's automated bakery, but feared the worst. "Ladies, I'm dreadfully sorry about your friends, but I must confess that they brought this upon themselves. If they had followed my rules," Bucket lied, "you would all be browsing the gift shop right n
