The Touch - Part Twenty Two

The pastor asked if they wanted to step inside the church for a moment to escape the still nippy morning air. May was an odd month in this part of the state, sometimes so warm you ran the air conditioning and the very next day you needed the furnace. Steve moved the rig closer to the door, just in...

The Touch - Part Twenty One

Todd stood silent for a few minutes and finally the pastor asked him to continue. The young medic took a long breath and then a deep sigh before speaking. The emotions on his face told he was a tired and confused man just then. "The moment that shock or electricity or whatever that was, I was giving... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Holding A Bit

After the dream I spoke of in one of my other blatherings yesterday, I had to orientate my main character a bit to follow down the new path. This won't take long and rather ruin what will hopefully become an uplifting story, I just need to rewrite the last 800 words I have done but not posted. After... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Part Twenty

"When we pulled up, there were all kinds of people around the father and his boy. I saw him do that old time artificial ventilation thing and the first thing I noticed when I got there was that the kid was still pink. I don't know where he learned that technique, maybe the Navy or Army, but the only... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Part Nineteen

As they drove back to their base, the first five minutes or so of the trip was quiet, far too quiet and finally Todd had to say something. "Let's stop at that church on the way back. They should be letting out any time now." Steve nodded. The rest of the ride was as quiet as the first and both men... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Part Eighteen

Todd sat in the chapel for a good fifteen minutes before Steve came looking for him. He had already made up the cot and had the rig ready for their next call. "The doctor wants to ask you a couple questions when you get a minute. The boy is alert and breathing fine. They aren't sure what happened to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Part Seventeen

Todd turned to tell the clown toughing him to back off right now or he was calling the cops to remove him but then he saw him. He was a tall man with deep brown eyes and flowing long hair. He froze momentarily as he strained to remember why he knew this man. He was wearing a non-collared white shirt... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Part Sixteen

Seeing that the crude form of artificial respiration had worked, he gently but firmly moved the younger brother to his patient. He then knelt beside the boy and felt for a pulse. He found a nice, strong, steady pulse and his pink color told him that enough air had been exchanged to keep him alive.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch Part Fifteen

Early May, 1975 It was an unusual Sunday morning at the ambulance base. The crews worked 24 and 48 hour shifts and on every morning except Sunday, they had to be up, showered and dressed in uniform by 8AM unless they had an unusually busy night. Most crews at all of the services bases took full... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - Answering Annicita

Annicita always asks me some good questions so I'll take a momentary break to answer her. After reading Part Twelve of "The Touch," she asked if this was part of the true stuff or part of the fictionalized stuff. She knows that I take a true story and 'spectacularize' it to make a good story. With... Sign in to see full entry.
