Aftermath Guardian’s War 15: Moving Day

I woke up and I had a few things to do before going to Bekah’s house and helping her move into her new place. I took my shower. I was out the door with Sunshine to get to therapy. Siren was supposed to come pick me up, but she had a meeting at work. I… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 15: Moving Day

It’s the middle of the afternoon in 2020 and I have been awake for 22 hours. But I have to finish. I can’t leave it like this.

Aftermath Guardian’s War 13: Two Pull

The following story includes the Spanish language. I’m not versed in this language and was forced to use an online translator. I’m not sure how accurate it is. I mean no offense if it’s wrong. So, one of the great miracles that Sunshine pulled off was this one right here. Just watch what she does… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 13: Two Pull

Aftermath Guardian’s War 10: The Sun Worshipper

We have to take a minute and look at the things Sunshine is doing in the background here because, damn. After Urgent left, Sunshine jumped to action fast.

Aftermath Guardian’s War 9: Shade

He shifted out and Siren set a plate of Hamburger Helper in front of him. He looked around and did not know where he was. He looked at the chair he sat on, the bed with the sheets he had slept on for a while, and he saw the TV, the stereo, and the coffee… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 9: Shade

Aftermath Guardian’s War 7: Tower of Pain

Two things happened simultaneously in me and Job’s relationship. First was his hate for Siren began to overcome him.

Aftermath Guardian’s War 4: Abuser

One night we found a new alter, a thing not born of abuse but of learning. He was not damaged, but twisted and wrong. He was not helpful or in need. He wanted things to fall apart. He called himself Char. We called him Abuser. Every Tuesday we got drunk. We would drink all sorts… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 4: Abuser

Aftermath Guardian’s War 3: Conductor

In the summer of 2001, the game changed forever. A bridge was created that changed it all. I will preface this by saying that it is amazing what the human mind can do, and by saying that this is all true. Some of the experts who know this disorder will dispute this as impossible, but… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 3: Conductor

Aftermath Guardian’s War 2: Urgent

I lived with Job in the apartment he shared with Anton for about a month before they moved into the Pink House. They were both friends of mine from Kentwood dorm. They had both allowed themselves to fail out. When you have minds as sharp and dangerous as Job and Anton, the only way you… Continue reading Aftermath Guardian’s War 2: Urgent

The Progenitor 4: Child Support

Got up off my chair in the apartment in South Towers and I answered the door. “Hi.” Siren tried to kiss me, but I was numb to everything and walked back to my chair. “Been a day. Gotta jump in the shower, if that is okay?” But she was already taking off her shirt when… Continue reading The Progenitor 4: Child Support
