Two unrelated forty-ish page stories: 1) “do you love me?” His fear gives him courage. If she comes any closer he will snap at her, will go for her throat, will- She looks down from... More > the sky; he watches the light die (there is no soul left in her, but she does not know it). “What are you doing here?” She is perplexed. She cannot figure him out. What is he doing here? -but she has left him now. He is safe. -- excerpt from Thud, says the axe (and smiles) 2) I duck behind the defense mechanism of attacking you as early as possible. To confuse you into silence amuses me profusely. You just look at me, puzzled and tired (as if, unaware that you did not work for me, I had just said: “You're fired.”) and I am struck by the repetitivity of this nonsense of mine: the befuddling idea that charm will be the bi-product of my mouthy mind. -- excerpt from Yellow Brick Road in Bb Minor< Less

Horror: A True Tale By Anonymous
eBook (ePub): $1.38
I was but nineteen years of age when the incident occurred which has thrown a shadow over my life; and, ah me! how many and many a weary year has dragged by since then! Young, happy, and beloved I... More > was in those long-departed days. They said that I was beautiful. The mirror now reflects a haggard old woman, with ashen lips and face of deadly pallor. But do not fancy that you are listening to a mere puling lament. It is not the flight of years that has brought me to be this wreck of my former self: had it been so I could have borne the loss cheerfully, patiently, as the common lot of all; but it was no natural progress of decay which has robbed me of bloom, of youth, of the hopes and joys that belong to youth, snapped the link that bound my heart to another's, and doomed me to a lone old age. I try to be patient, but my cross has been heavy, and my heart is empty and weary, and I long for the death that comes so slowly to those who pray to die.< Less
