Author's note

I hadn't intended to break into the story with a personal note, but I've noticed something peculiar over the last few days. More than a month after I signed up here, my earnings had reached a whopping 88 cents...then, yesterday, I noticed that the number had dropped to 80 cents. It's bad enough to...

Clapping Hans

I didn't wait for him to come find me. As soon as I put my shorts and vest back on, fully loaded with extra ammo and my other weapons, I darted back into the house. The goon I'd stomped on the way out was still where I'd left him, as was the one Shadow had pounded into a bloody pulp a few minutes... Sign in to see full entry.

Do not Go Gentle

The first two never knew what hit 'em. I slipped up behind them while they crept through the trees, probably hoping to put a bullet in my head without having to get anywhere near me. By the time they heard my footsteps, it was too late. Three seconds and two broken necks later, I left them sprawled... Sign in to see full entry.

Take it to the woods

The first shot came from Shadow's gun, a quick burst aimed somewhere off to her left, accompanied by a shrill yelp. I twitched and looked over my shoulder, saw her staring at something in the bushes lining the back yard. "Something moved," she squeaked. "Try not to waste your ammo," I muttered....

Unarmed and Dangerous

A scream from inside the house distracted both of us. The mecha's helmet snapped around to look at the front door, and I did the same, drawing in a deep breath and freezing. That scream...that was Shadow. At least one of the thugs must have gone into the house. Another scream...followed by a stream... Sign in to see full entry.

Let the bodies hit the floor

They hesitated for maybe half a second. Long enough for me to grab the couch and flip it over on them. They opened up on me, but by then the couch was between us. I pushed it forward, shoving it straight into them, and the one on the right staggered out the door. The other backed into the wall. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Turning the tables

Shadow stared at the remote and whimpered. Theron's thumb touched the button, moving with sadistic slowness, and began to push it. I screamed again, flailing, trying to find a handhold somewhere-- anywhere --on the mecha suit. Shadow rolled off the couch, pulling the IV cart over, and the line... Sign in to see full entry.

Nearly Departed

He went for my wounded leg right off the bat, ramming his fist into it like a huge piston, and brought his other arm down between my shoulder blades. Next thing I knew, I was on the floor with the remains of the coffee table smashed under me and my face ground into the carpet. Something pressed... Sign in to see full entry.

Shadow

I didn't have to find Theron. He found one of my closest friends, Shadow, while I was in the hospital. He left a message on my phone--turn myself over to him or he'd kill her. Fucking coward. The meeting place: an isolated cabin in the woods near Hunsaker Beach, where no one else would witness what... Sign in to see full entry.

Boredom, hospital food, Jan Michael Vincent and the scent of tuna

They should let me out this afternoon--and not a moment too soon. Been stuck in this bed all day yesterday and most of today, except for the occasional trip to the bathroom. I'll probably be limping a few more days, but I'm told I'll be as good as new after that. I'll be glad to get out of here. I... Sign in to see full entry.
