In the Public Eye: Part 40

Wind blew out of the tunnel, rattling parts in their boxes and tools hanging the walls. In the middle of it, I could see the hazy shape of the girl. I wondered what effect the sonics would have on her. Would sound do nothing or would it disrupt whatever connected her to herself in that form?

I didn’t want to kill her, so I decided not to think about it. She was Daniel’s problem.

“She’s kind of… dispersed mentally,” he said, “but I can do this –“

The hazy form flattened as it hit an invisible wall, face, glasses and the back of her skull interpenetrating each other. She dissolved into a colored gas, reforming a few feet away as cloudy version of herself.

In the Public Eye: Part 39

I punched the distress call.

Above us, scattered lights began to blink slowly red.

I looked up. “I didn’t know that happened.”

“Me neither,” Daniel said. “It looks like we’ve got a lot of dead bulbs.”

With that we got another round of phone calls — except we got one less. In addition to Vaughn, Jaclyn didn’t call back.

In the Public Eye: Part 22

Sorry about how late this is. I aim for early Tuesday and I’ve actually managed early Wednesday. And the main reason I’ve managed to get it up now is that I couldn’t sleep.

Note to self: Do not drink two cups of tea before going to bed. You will regret it.

I should also mention an annoying thing. I’m probably not going to update on Friday. I’m going camping this weekend and I’m leaving on Thursday. I will be on track to update next Tuesday though.

Gathering: Part 2

Some of you might have noticed that I changed the last installment’s title and made it the beginning of a new section of the story. I’ve even gotten a little way into writing a cast page. I haven’t made it public yet, however.

There are more characters than I’d have thought and I’m introducing a few more in the course of the next couple posts.

So, anyway… Another chunk of story. Continue reading Gathering: Part 2

Gathering: Part 1

What we’ve got here is the beginning of a scene that will be continued on Thursday or (much more likely) Friday. To be honest, I’ve mixed feelings about ending it where I do, but I’ve got to cut the scene somewhere. In the next post we’ll get a little more into the meat of things. In the meantime, I get to spill a teensy-tiny bit more about what the old League was like.

Lightning Strikes Twice: Part 1

As mentioned in my last post, I’m going to try to update twice rather than once weekly starting this month. It’ll happen on Tuesday and Thursday. If it turns out that I can make it regularly, I may try for three.

That being said, initially at least, it won’t be much different in terms of actual word count for the week.
