Hollow Man 24: Destiny Part 3

I released Teardrop Road on June 23, 2021. I think it was a Thursday. It was pretty devastating to put it out in the world on the big stage. Having your secrets on a blog is one thing. The worldwide stage opens up doubts and fears that I expected but could never prepare myself for. However, this… Continue reading Hollow Man 24: Destiny Part 3

The Progenitor 16: Slade

’97 was a hell of a year. In 1997, the Droogs were formed. It was about April I think. Things are fuzzy about the formation, but it was around that time. In 1997, I started dating Bekah. The hell that followed us after that was immortalized in the book Normal Street, I think you have… Continue reading The Progenitor 16: Slade

The New Girl 22: The Portrait

Guardian and Bekah were eating a sad meal at the cafeteria. They could barely look at each other. Just a graze of the eyes hurt. It hurt just to be near one another, but if they could get a moment, they would. Bekah was talking about her art classes and said she needed to draw… Continue reading The New Girl 22: The Portrait

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 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 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
