Rise of the Tellers 15: Wedding, Part 3

I woke up to donuts and D’s instruction. He looked at me and smiled. “I got married months ago.” “I know. I gave you a kick ass toast,” I said. “I remember. Listen—” “It was a better toast than your Best Man’s toast. I don’t think he will ever forgive me for that.” “I need… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 15: Wedding, Part 3

Rise of the Tellers 14: Wedding, Part 2

I woke up at about one and she hit me right away. “I want all the bridesmaids to wear white!” Bekah said. I sat up. This was my favorite way to wake up. She had started doing this almost instantly when we had gotten engaged but as we got closer to time it picked up… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 14: Wedding, Part 2

Rise of the Tellers 6: The Knife, Part 2

When we drove to New York to go to the wedding of Bliss and her man, Bell came with us as far as Columbus, Ohio. Burg was living there at the time and he was our halfway point. Bell came and the plan was to leave him with Burg for the week and pick him… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 6: The Knife, Part 2

Aftermath New Girl 5: The Weekend

One day, while having sex with Sapphire, I called out Bekah’s name. We both ignored it. We acted like it never happened and we finished. We laughed and played, then I excused myself to go into the bathroom, and in that shitty little bathroom in Burg and mine’s shitty little apartment, I wept. I cried… Continue reading Aftermath New Girl 5: The Weekend

Aftermath New Girl 4: Grand and Grant

The summer after Sapphire and I got together, I had no place to live. The plan was to pick up more hours at Pizza Hut and make that work somehow. But out of nowhere came Burg with a plan. He was living in Columbia and going to college at MU. He wanted a change of… Continue reading Aftermath New Girl 4: Grand and Grant

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
