    I have been waiting twenty-three months for this night. This night has left its marks on me. The marks make this night look like an ephemeral hallucination. This night represents the cacophony of my entire mind, in a few short hours. I always thought my thoughts would culminate at a party. This n...

    Potential exists in every molecule on this planet. It is the thing that can make us lie down on a snow covered concrete bench, in near zero temperatures, at 9:30 at night, and stare. Stare at the potential of an open field that has become white with snow. Realize the memories that you and others mad...

    The first place Taylor went was oddly enough, a place to think about what she would do next. After all, this would be a new life. A new life that had waited years for the perfect to show itself. This new life had hoped that Taylor would notice it in its subtle presentations. That worked about as wel...

    I had an idea and it was favorable among enough people. Earlier today, while I was getting some supplies for tonight, I spotted many paths that could serve as trails into the deep, wooded mountain in the area. Tonight was a high school reunion, the ten year one for my graduating class. While there...

    A large crowd formed around the two taken grays. The creatures in the crowd were there watching from a distance before, at a forum just along another path. They were all grays, looking to see who would fight longer. One slowly plodded over to the drawer, leaned in, as if to get a close look, and urg...

    All the while through the cold rain that occurred that day, the birds stayed, waiting for Taylor. When she arrived at the tree that afternoon the sight was wondrous. The creatures even shaded her from the weather as she reached up to a low branch, and delicately peeled up a crow. A sudden, peculiar ...

    The celebration didn’t last as long as it could have. Abruptly, The Drawn went away. He was solemnly walking wherever else he could go. He couldn’t go home because he would be recognized and feared. He couldn’t go back and be happy, because he was overcome by the loss. So he just went away. Th...

    The following is a telling of the true events that occurred September 17-21, 2013. I was there as a proud part of it. It is day one. Not the original day one, no. That was over a half of a year ago. I’m talking about day one of preparation for the biggest game of the year, the first day of prac...

    Taylor donned her usual hooded sweatshirt and walked out the door to her school bus stop. A few steps afterwards she stopped at a remarkable sight. On this morning, with air temperatures near freezing, crows were perched on a bare tree. They were so abundant that it seemed as though the tree itself ...

    So many things had to fall into place when they did, and looking back on that day some of the things that happened were profoundly odd. Something you should know first is that my parents were away at a wedding, so I was staying with my grandmother. That weekend I had a project due, so I needed some ...

    I let out a deep breath of relief as I was finally released. Something inside him finally decided that time was up. It was Lucas, finally realizing that the time for personal debt was over. He was begging from the inside to be let go. What was left of his human form was rejecting the change. There w...

    He sat in The Chair in the Transition Room, staring ahead, and contemplating his decision. It would be hard to do it himself, and there were serious risks of complications. Still, he thought of how much power it would give him to do this again. He didn’t have Forbes to oversee everything, for that...

    I creeped up to the door and tried to hear the muffled conversation. “Just show me and you’ll get the cash. Okay, here it is. Now let’s g-“ The transformation was now complete. Their language was now foreign to me. I feared the worst and snapped into the door. They were close by and I co...

    So, for a few days I laid low. Then, people came out three-fold, and so did I. It happened again, then again. It became a routine after a while, an adaptation. There they were again and again. Forbes and the officer, talking in the control center. Tonight I went to see if anything was different, ...

    The next night I did the same thing in a different place. And again the next night, and again. I couldn’t run out of places to come down from; it was New York City. Even so, when I did eventually, I could just have Forbes reverse me. Then again, Forbes would be long gone, and I would need someone ...

    Maybe I should just visit the control center. Just for some reassurance, to know my human form is still there. I thought as I was there. After all, what harm could it do? I crept to the annex. It had been expanded, that I knew. It appears Forbes came here while I was upstairs. He was talking. I crep...

    It was fairly easy to do. I had a brother working as a receptionist at West Point. I just gave his identification card to Forbes. He took it from there. Defense.gov, site search for member login. Name: Kevin Charles, Security Code: you don’t need to know, successfully logged in. File search, Pr...

    Now it is night, deep night. I lie atop a building. Forbes knows about the building, I don’t. He gave me instructions about not being seen. Soon I won’t need those instructions. I peer down at the ground below, at the people below. There are many of them. They are walking, talking, shopping, ...
