Serene

“It’s been weeks since my last episode, I really don’t know what is happening to me”, said Billy, while talking to a horse inside a barn.

He grumbled, “I think I’m going crazy. Why am I even talking to you. Last time I heard about the pack was a few weeks ago. I don’t really know what happened to my friends, but I’m gonna get to the bottom of it. Someone, or something murdered them.”

He stepped out of the barn, started walking towards the road, then looked back.

“I need sustenance first. Before I embark on my journey to seek justice for what happened to my friends. Red, Lance, Eric. Help me. Talk to me. Give me a sign. Tell me where to start.”

After Billy ate some berries and meat, he left the farm. Only thing he heard was the cattle rustling behind him.

The Pack

“Eric, you said Billy is how far again?”, came the harsh remark of Red, the leader.

“Billy is all mine. I don’t want anyone to lay a finger on him.Red, don’t stop me.”

“Make it quick, we have other business to attend to. We will stand down if you want, but when we hear something not right, we will come in to get you. You hear pal?”, chimed in Lance, the enforcer of the group.

“You got nothing to worry about, he will come.”, replied Eric.

Eric walked up to the door, pulled out the gun from his holster, and kicked the door in. Horror set in when Eric saw what Billy has become. He let out a long agonizing scream.

The crew ran in to Eric’s aid. Each one falling like Eric. Billy fled in the cover of the dark.

The bikes are the only witness to terror.

Mayday! Mayday!

Thornton asked the chopper pilot, “Sir, are we gonna make it in time? This is urgent.”

The pilot replied, “It depends on  the air traffic sir, we are approaching La Guardia. If there are planes landing, we might be halted.”

To this, Thornton replied, “Is there a possibility we can steer away from that and take a different route?As long as it is less than 15 minutes, then we’re clear.”

The pilot nodded and slowly turned  the chopper going east.He then said, “We will be at the destination within 10 minutes sir.”

Thornton, relieved, sat back and then pulled out a picture from his wallet. He was gonna make it to where he needed to be.

He is excited to become a father.

Rusty Gold

I was walking on a gravel road on the way home. The rain just stopped so I’m trying to avoid the puddles in the road. While carefully stepping over a puddle, I saw something shimmer near the side of the road. I walked up to it, and found an old timepiece.

I opened the ornate front of the timepiece, hoping to see some engraving or a picture so I could return it to the owner. But to no avail, there was none. I continued trodding the path towards home, thinking to myself how to find the owner of the watch.

I got to my front porch, and while removing my boots, my neighbor greeted me. He said, “I cannot help but notice the timepiece that you’re holding. Your grandfather would be proud that you found his watch after he lost it years ago.”

I thanked my neighbor, went inside the house, and looked for my grandfather’s trunk. I opened it, and placed the watch together with the other possessions that he left.
