You-jeong Jeong THE GOOD SON I A CALL IN THE DARK The smell of blood woke me. It was intense, as though my whole body were inhaling it. It reverberated and expanded within me. Strange scenes flitted through my mind the fuzzy yellow light of a row of street lamps in the fog, swirling water below my feet, a crimson umbrella rolling along a rain-soaked road, a plastic tarpaulin shrouding a construction site snapping in the wind. Somewhere a man was singing and slurring lyrics: a song about a girl ...

I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I watered it in fears, Night and morning with my tears And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft, deceitful wiles. And it grew both day and night, Till it bore an apple bright, And my foe beheld it shine, And he knew that it was mine, And into my garden stole, When the ...

Catt Dahman TITANIC QED Chapter One: Titanic: Boarding Call The Titanic was a colossal sea creature that breathed dark soot from her four smokestacks as she towered high in the water. Howard, clutching his leather satchel close to his chest, took his first up-close look at the ship and saw her as a leviathan, ravenous and grotesque. Passengers entered her sinister labyrinths to find themselves a part of the mystical, Bacchanalian voyage, or so he thought. If asked to describe the Titanic, he ...

He collapsed against the cemetery wall. His ragged breathing smothered any sounds of pursuit. No time to rest. He dashed across the fields and mud clung to his boots. Pain burned his legs, and his body staggered as it threatened to topple him over. Then his boot hit hard ground. A large barn loomed before him with ...

Blurred vision, throbbing headache, sharp stinging pain on the right side of his neck. He touched the center of his forehead with the tips of his fingers, felt the hard knot that had formed there, wondered why he wasnt dead. He raised his head and looked around, felt a wave of nausea come and go. He was still in the ...
