The New Girl 17: The Death of the Droogs

Bell was here a few weeks ago. He brought Christmas presents for everyone. I got a mug. It is huge and it is made out of an ox horn. It’s one of the most badass things I own, and I will use it next time I have my Barbarian Goat Drinking Party. For details on… Continue reading The New Girl 17: The Death of the Droogs

The New Girl 16: Aftermath

I gotta get this bitch the fuck out of my apartment now, was the first thing Shadow thought as soon as the door closed after Hymnal and Vigil walked out. He spun to point at Bekah and tell her to get out, and Guardian came out in force. He surged forward so hard he nearly… Continue reading The New Girl 16: Aftermath

The New Girl 13: First Christmas

Rose’s Kitchen: “Well that woman is going to demand that you take the whole day with her.” See here, she is talking about Hymnal. Here, Rose is making the first of her attacks on Bekah’s mother. Let’s get back to it, it gets really good. “She is a Lynch, so she gets everything she wants.”… Continue reading The New Girl 13: First Christmas

The New Girl 11: The Proposal

By the time we got to the door, I hated it. This was not her ring. I could feel it in my bones as they throbbed, my fingers as they flexed, in my head as it screamed. I stopped at the door to the jewelry store, looked at the ring again, and almost walked back… Continue reading The New Girl 11: The Proposal

The New Girl 9: The Maître d’

“Well, you can’t use my kitchen. I have a husband to cook for. See, I’m a wife who cooks for the man she loves,” Rose said. Shadow stepped forward when a thing swooped down from below. That is the best way to describe it. You’re probably scratching your head thinking things swoop from above and… Continue reading The New Girl 9: The Maître d’

The New Girl 6: Future Part 1

Bell stopped at the door. “Good game, Jesse. See you tomorrow.” “Yeah, later, my Droog.” I looked at Bekah who sat staring at me. “What the hell was that?” she said. Her eyes were wide. She seemed about to break into pieces and shoot off into the air at the same time. I did not… Continue reading The New Girl 6: Future Part 1

The New Girl 5: Breaking the News

After the Dress: “Everybody out,” Burg said. The apartment went quiet and everyone looked at me. “She is my sister. I am staying for this,” Bliss said. “She is back in Springfield and can’t talk for herself.” “You’re gonna leave and you’re gonna leave now,” Bell said. “We gotta talk to our Droog.” Everyone huffed… Continue reading The New Girl 5: Breaking the News

The New Girl 3: Meeting Vigil

“I need your help,” I said to Rose as I walked into her house. “First, have you eaten?” “Since when?” “Sit down and eat.” My mother dropped a plate of pasta on the table and summoned me with her flapping slap. I obeyed. “What can I do for my son today?” She smoothed back my… Continue reading The New Girl 3: Meeting Vigil

The New Girl 2: Come Home Soon

She had stayed until everyone left and I was walking Bekah to her car. It was the first day we were together, and she was going to her parents where she was staying for the summer. “Don’t go,” I said. “You belong here. With me.” I kissed her. It didn’t take more than that to… Continue reading The New Girl 2: Come Home Soon
