A Terrible Idea 27

Galactic Man flew at an astonishing speed. It helped, sometimes, to be able to fly after intense encounters. He could deal his adrenaline up in the sky, where no one could get hurt. Where he could fly away from all the problems, all the emotions he’d found on the ground below. He sped through the […]

A Terrible Idea 26

Anne finally managed to swallow the bagel. “Wow, so you’re like…” Anne found herself stunned with disbelief. “You’re Caine’s friend.” “Yep.” “Named Magique.” “Yep.” “Magician who’s friends with Caine.” “That’d be me.” “Caine, big mean dude who’s in prison and reads people’s minds?” “Yeah,” Magique said. “No offense or anything, I’m sure you’re great and […]

Anne ordered an Everything Bagel, then looked out at all the bagel shop’s patrons. People were sitting there, eating their bagels. And it was pretty messy.

Of course, right after doing that, she’d remembered that David had come back […]

Anne sat at the toilet seat, having forsaken all hope, dignity, and most likely every other aspirational emotion you can think of. So, at that very moment, her cell phone rang. “Shit,” she muttered, forehead on her arms — a position which allowed her a not-so-lovely look into the toilet bowl. “Goddamn motherfucking shit.” She […]

A Terrible Idea 22

Anne turned off the TV, unable to believe Betsy’s report on the cult that had sprung up around David’s resurrection. “No,” she said, holding the TV remote in her hand. “No?” She repeated to herself. “Nuh-uh.” She spun the idea around in her mind: David might’ve come back to life. “No!” she said, laughing.
