The Darkness - Redux - Part Eighteen

Richard was pulling into the Well's driveway just as the local fire department was pulling out. He didn't see the big hook and ladder truck or the heavy pumping truck, just a couple of the jeep type trucks. He walked down toward the backside of the yard where everyone was congregated, only to see a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Seventeen

As he settled back into his chair, he felt a faint electric feeling going on in his belly and chest. 'Come on now. It's just a tape recording. He... I mean it can't hurt me. Buck up here man. Buck up.' He took a big deep breath and sighed. It occurred to him that virtually everyone who knew Johnny... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Sixteen

The Darkness Falls Richard went home but it was a couple of days before he worked up the courage to listen to the tape of that day. It took a couple of hot showers to wash the smell from him. It wasn't the smell of his own urine, it was the smell of his fear. It is a well known fact that animals can... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Fifteen

While both adults gathered themselves, Johnny snuggled tight into his mother's bosom. He wanted to feel safe and to be comforted and was not ever aware that the man and his mother wanted the same thing. After they had all soothed themselves, they went back out on the veranda into the comfort of the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Fourteen

"When I was talking to your Daddy right now, he told me about a man you saw in the mirror. He said you didn't like the man. Can you help me understand what you saw and why he scared you?" The blank face of the boy changed in the snap of fingers. "Daddy Roger should not have told you about that... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - I Zigged Where I Had Intended To Zag.

File this under multiple blog entries. As I've reported, my Internet has been down more than it has been up the last week or so but the bonanza for me was it lead to everyone in the house BUT me going to bed early, leaving me precious time to sink into my main character in this series. I began... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Thirteen

"What did you and Jackie do at your farm?" The boy's smile dimmed somewhat as his vision of his sister slipped to second in line in his thoughts. Richard noted the change in facial features and waited for the boy to begin. He watched as the boy shifted about in his chair for a moment, and once... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twelve

They had chosen a beautiful late June Saturday to hold their next session. The temps hadn't quite begun to hit that uncomfortable zone of humidity and 90 plus temps that July and August sometimes brought to Michigan. A light breeze kept the trees stirring ever so slightly and their restlessness made... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Eleven

Richard spent the next couple days doing Internet searches and asking a few European historian friends about what Johnny had told him. As much as he had been astounded before, he was even more amazed at what he had found. There really had been a 'Seven Weeks War' in 1866 in Germany. Kassa was a real... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - In Praise of Annicita...

... With Respects to "The Twilight Zone's" episode, "In Praise of Pip." Annicita has raised an interesting question (at least to me) so I'll take a couple hundred words to explain. She asked if 'Part Nine' of The Darkness was truth or fiction. The answer is both answers are correct. Mark Twain once... Sign in to see full entry.
