Devil’s Swing For Two

YðÙr DrÈÀm WiLl çØmË TrÛé  Μÿ DàRLÌñG

I’m a simple demon I use to work with humans but I was deceived and now I’m coming after them and there will be nothing left when I’m done with them. “ΥÓù LÎÉd Τó Mé! ÝòÛ βêΤrÁÿÊd Μè Ì ΤrÚšΤéD ÝðÚ!” ripped them apart I stab my pointed tail into his ratched body over and over laughing loudly until I saw a girl standing in the doorway of her old man’s office she looked at me dead in the eyes until she took off down the hall I could hear her pounding heart and this mortal being interested me very much like I meet her before and had a liking to her. Following the young women I found her locked in a closet I easily used my tail to break the lock I opened the door getting down to the girl’s level seeing her bright green eyes filled with fear “please don’t hurt me..” smiling a small grin I wiped her tears away “WòÑ’Τ DrÊåΜ òF ìΤ” gently pulling her from the closet I stood to be my full height I was about 7ft compared to this 5’2 ft girl “do you have a name? I’d rather not call you demon that would probably get annoying for both of us” “I dÒnΤ HåVè À nÂmÉ” she walks off and I follow again my bare feet tapping against the wooden floor. I wonder what she’s doing when she walks into a blue painted room and grabbed a pen and paper sitting down she started to write things down so I waited and just looked around the girl’s room “ÝòÚ nÉvËr ΤðLd Μé ÝðÛr ΝåΜê” she looks up and smiles “Lynn” I bowed to her to show respect “ΗéLlÒ LýΝñ”. Lynn soon showed me the paper with a long list of named but one stood out and I liked it the most “Î LìΚê LòΚì” Lynn smiles at me “Loki is a god of mischief so I had a feeling you would like that name but Loki can I ask something?…why did you kill my father?” Loki sat down on the floor and his tail laid on the floor before wrapping around his leg “ÝðÜr FátΗêR LìÊd Τó Μé…Ηé SâÌd Hê CäRêÐ BûΤ Ηê ÛsÊd Mé” “What did he promise you? and you don’t have to tell me if you wish not to” Loki shakes his head and explains to Lynn that her father promised to set him free if he worked for him but with Lynn’s fathers betrayal he locked Loki away and forced him to slave away and keep him locked up like all the others have before to use him for his magic and powers. I was a mortal girl who became friends with a demon named Loki but I slowly started to hate myself since I slowly started to fall in love with Loki and I hated myself because I knew a demon couldn’t or wouldn’t a mortal like myself so slowly I started to avoid Loki which I knew upset him and I knew he was confused by my actions and I had a feeling he would try everything to get it out of me but   until then I would stay silent. Night fell and I felt the covers get ripped off of me and I’m staring face to face with Loki “WhÝ hÁvÊ ÿÓú βëÊn ÀvðÎdîΝg Μê?” rolling away from him and rubbing my eyes I yawn softly  “Loki It’s four in the morning go away I have school” Loki seemed to growl and grabbed my arm making me face him “Ï wÓñΤ áŠk ÀgàÍn!” pulling my arm away I sit up “because I love you stupid! I didn’t want to get my hopes up or get deeper into these emotions” seeing the blank look in his eyes I knew what he was feeling so laying back down I covered myself back up and turned my back to him hoping to fall asleep again but I feel arms wrap around me and I see Loki holding onto me like I would vanish if he let go of me. Opening my mouth going to speak but I close my eyes finally falling asleep and waking up to a grey sky and a light tapping of rain hitting my window, Loki went missing but it only helped me get over the emotions I felt for him and over the month I finally got over those emotions meaning I was back to my old self before I met Loki which was sad and alone but at least I didn’t have to worry about a broken heart or worse. I now lived alone which was nice but also lonely so I started to look for a roommate and there he was at my door the next morning. “I’m here about the room” he smiled and I swear I’ve seen that smile before or those eyes…could it be? “Loki?…” he smiled more “It’s Michael now but yes” those same feelings started to pour back into me but this time I didn’t want them to leave me. Throwing my arms around his neck I held him close “asshole why did you leave? why didn’t you just tell me? I wouldn’t have cared if you left” Michael chuckles and wraps his arms around my waist holding me close to him “Sorry but I wanted to surprise you with this, this new me because I realized you can’t love a demon the way I looked so I left to find a way to be…human like” grabbing his face “demon human or what you’re still my demon and I don’t want you to leave me again and your looks weren’t the reason I fell in love with you stupid I fell in love with you because of your personality, and who you are not looks, but thank you for thinking of me that means a lot to me” Michael and myself have been together for years now and we are married plus we now have our first baby on the way which Michael promises the baby won’t have horns or a tail but the baby will be like their father a demon but not in appearance demon or not I will love my child became I have danced with a demon and I wouldn’t take that back in a million years to me this is just a messed up beauty and the beast but no curse since Michael was always beautiful in my eyes and he’s perfect to me in everyway.


It takes two to dance the tango. 


Last Life

I wake up alone and wander around the town looking for any kind of life. At first I’m pumped no rules I can do anything I want so let’s go party!. I take my family car and drive down to Bangor to the mall, I got to my most favorite store Hot Topic and take whatever I want no one can stop me from doing so. Hour 5 and I’m still having some fun…ok that’s a lie I’m alone and I miss my friends and family I miss people I miss everything. I drive around and get gas exploring the US going to places I’ve always wanted to go to but it’s not as fun without friends or family so it’s all boring to me so I’m keeping a journal with me just incase someday people come back and they find this. I lost track of time and now I feel so alone with no hope has it been days? Weeks? I don’t remember and I don’t think it matters anymore no one is coming back but it doesn’t matter now I’m going back to the place where my life began back home in Arizona I want to go home to my childhood home and just see it one more time before I end my suffering and end my madness, I talk to myself and I created a new version of myself and I really don’t know what to call her…maybe she’s just my madness coming to life. I finally arrive back in Arizona my home my birthplace, wandering around I remember places and buildings I went to with my mother, my mother how I miss her, she was the one person who believed in me and now she’s gone so now I’m really alone and I have no one to help me, the world is empty no one is left and I wish I could remember what happened to everyone, I found there many dead bodies some worse than others. A memory hit me, voices screaming and begging for mercy, was I there? Was I one of the many screaming? I can’t remember now but if I can get more maybe I can find out what happened to everyone and why i’m still alive. I forget my plan to end my crappy life and go off and find more clues, I really feel insane but I sing anyway and sing a song soaked in pain. It takes a while for me to get everything together and finally put all the pieces together and I laugh and laugh finally remembering what happened to everyone. You see I killed them all everyone is dead and i’m the last one alive and this is a wonderful day. Finally I went home and shot a single bullet into my front lobe ending my mad life with a bang.

Inside Fear

All I ever did was run away fear but I kept trying trying to rise up and beat my fear to the ground but all I did was run because I was to forget everything and start over again but It’s hard when this black shadow follows you around and slowly eat away at your very being. I’m talking about the fear everyone has, not being good enough for the people around you thinking you aren’t pretty like some girls or as buff as some guys but the truth is this fear really eats away at someone’s life and I’m here to tell you my story and how I beat my fear
My name is Meg and everyday I woke up seeing the tall shadow sitting at my desk watching me it’s large toothy grin and red eyes just staring into my very soul it’s already telling me how I should just vanished and die ignoring it like always I push the velvet covers off me I walk into my bathroom getting ready for school. Sitting on the bus with this shadow beside me telling me I should look like Beth who’s thin and her face is covered in so much makeup if she hit the back of her seat her face would come off but her was seen as the perfect being thin pretty and a cheerleader while I was a basic girl wavy dark hair and bright green eyes but I was seen as an outcast since my name wasn’t well known in this shit hole town or my parents weren’t important people but really truth is I’m happy with my life but a nagging fear of how I’m not good enough compared to others around me and I know one day I will be strong enough to fight back. Senior year in high school is the worst year with this fear mostly because prom graduation and other crappy things and other the past few years this shadow grew bigger and bigger until finally I found myself staring down from my third story window, thinking of all the things I have heard and dealt with I thought this would make it so much better but opening my eyes I fall backwards onto my bed looking at the tall hard shadow that had an angry scowl on it’s face. I called my two best friends and told them what I was going through and how this fear was slowly eating me away and for the first time in forever I cried but I stopped when the lines went dead only to jump as my friends burst into my room with movies soda and sweets in their arms “You are important and you don’t have to be like everyone else, being you makes you who you are and who you are is someone important to us so we will help you stand up to this and help push you forward” My name is Meg and this is the story of how I almost gave into my darkest fear, depression but I stood tall and I kicked it ass standing up for myself and fought back because I’m a strong women who can be anyone she wants and she doesn’t have to stand beside everyone else in this imperfect world so suck it and be who you want to be not who this world tries to force you to be.



Dear Mother,

Thank you for believing in me for everything and taking care of me over the years and pushing me to gain my goals but this letter is for you. You carried me for 8 months and you cared for me when I was a preemie baby, you kept me when others told you I would be deformed and have so many problems but you loved me and here I am 18 years later thanks to you and I love you for it not only because you are my mother but you are my best friend we may fight and get mad at each other but that’s because we are so similar in so many ways but sometimes that’s good and sometimes not so much. Mom if It wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t have done so many amazing things and when we separate this fall we will both cry but we will still be together because a mother daughter relationship is strong and I will always look up to you because you are so important to me and I love you. Mom you have been the shoulder I have cried on so many times you helped me find the person I love most, sometimes I think you had things planned just to get me and Cody together but enough about me I want to thank you and say I love you so much, without you I would be lost without you in my life. It’s hard to express my emotions on the computer so I promise you I will have your gift ready I put so much heart and emotions into it I just hope it’s as good as I hope it is. Mom when I read this to you and hand you the gift I hand made for you I you are happy with both of these things I wanted this gift to be something you couldn’t buy with money so you could have the only one in the world because like you I only have one Mother and no amount of money could get me a new one or replace the awesome Mom I already have.
                                                            Sincerely your middle child Cassidy

Remember Your Past


A small group of people talk in a bar of their past lives which they can remember and you overhear them talking surprised that a small group of six can also remember their old lives and you share your story
Setting my drink down I look over at the group and chuckles softly hearing how they all died you remember yours very well you were Jack The Ripper’s first victim even though you were a married woman, you were burned at the stake for being a witch when you were talking about your old life before that but the list goes on and now and now here you are laughing at these six men for their weak deaths, shot, batman wanna be, religious sacrifice, killed by a mob boss these men made you laugh. “Hey blondie what’s so funny huh?” the batman wanna be called out. “You, all of you thinking your deaths are so much better but really they are nothing compared to what I had to deal with” they pulled up a chair and I sat down “and I’m not blond” All of us shared our stories and turns out these guys are funny and they are surprised that someone else could remember their past lives “well I was jack the ripper and no one caught me so clearly I’m the best” slowly turning to him I stood up and sucker punched him in the jaw “you asswaggon you’re the one who murdered me for no reason! What was that all about?!” he rubbed his jaw “oh..uh well I wanted to get back at your husband..” groaning I sit down “well screw you then” taking a drink of my whiskey the room fell silent “I was on the Titanic and the story was wrong actually we never saw the iceberg it just hit while we were all sleeping”  Tucker speaks up killing the silence. “I was a king I was king Henry the 8th, I made history and probably divorce” Max shrugs drinking his beer. “What about you? You make history?” everyone turned to look at me “Yeah I did I was Joan of Arc” chuckling and taking the final drink of my whiskey I sigh “so I noticed the seven of us can remember all of our past lives but why? Did any of you think why we get to remember our old selves and no one else can?”  The group of six looked at each other than to me “well no actually but we just never really cared why we can remember our old lives but really it doesn’t matter but we keep making history so I’m sure it’s not that bad right?” David looked at all of us wondering if we felt the same way “well who is everyone now?’ “I’m david I make video games” “I’m ryan I’m an author” “I’m Max I’m a teacher” “I’m Tucker I’m a cop” “I’m Kerry and I’m a college teacher” “I’m Felix and I’m a firefighter” chuckling I sigh “well I’m Ruby and I’m nothing but a college student” they all smile “but a college student can become anything they want to be so don’t say you are nothing when you can become something very important if you wish to be” Smiling I shrugs “depends I’m studying in Criminal Justice so who knows I could be important just like I have been in all my old lives.” The seven of us talked all night and I found out Kerry is the English teacher at my college I just don’t have his class so I never knew it, Ryan is my favorite author and I have most of his books back in my room on my two large bookshelves, Max was my middle school math teacher, David was my favorite video game designer I had almost every game he ever made and Tucker was the cop that pulled me over for driving my best friend to the hospital when she was in labor and Felix was the firefighter that pulled me from my burning home when I was a young teenager so in some way all of us are connected in each life and we all laughed at how we all picked the same bar that night, a group of strangers come together with the same ability to remember their old lives. In their new lives they would come together and enjoy another night at the bar. Years passed, and Tucker was killed in the line of duty while Felix was also killed in a house fire, while the rest of the friends went to the two funerals they just had to wait for their friends to come back so they could go out for another drink and talk about their new death stories but it took longer for Tucker and Felix to come back and the five remaining friends split up they couldn’t look at each other anymore so each went their own way all except Ruby she tried to get her friends to come back since they were all she had left to a messed up family, A family she needed, and she lost them. Tucker and Felix finally came back, and the first thing they did was going to the bar and head to their table hoping to see their friends but all they saw was Ruby drinking alone with two bottles laying on the table “can I help you two?” the new Tucker sat down taking the drink from Ruby “That’s enough kid you’re going to hate yourself in the morning” “Tucker? Felix?” both men nodded “What the hell took you both so long? Everyone is gone…I lost my family all over again so why don’t you both just turn and, walk out that door since the others aren’t coming back they moved on…” Ruby paid her bill, and left getting in a taxi going home. Tucker and Felix got the group back together again all they needed was Ruby the second youngest of the group just two years behind David. “Ok so how are we going to find Ruby?” Kerry laughs “We go to the same college I’ll get her don’t worry but I just hope she’s still not mad at us for not listening to her about Tucker and Felix” Kerry went to find Ruby but when he asked her friend about her she started to break down in tears saying that Ruby died in a car crash last night which made Kerry go back to the group “Ruby she…she died last night in a car crash so we are waiting for her like she waited for the rest of us to come back” When Ruby came back she was now called Cassidy but she goes by Cas more. The others waited for her and when she came back she sat down and ordered her usual drink “sup losers be waiting long?” she waves and explains why she went by Cassidy, her grandmother wanted her to be the way she wanted her to be so she changed when she came back and she became the person she wanted to be and she was happier that way and everyone was glad she became someone she was happy with, and that she became the person she wanted to be and not the person she was forced to be. Years have passed and the world changed but the seven of them never did change still the same morons the first day they met and some of their lives even gave them the best adventures like working as a gang who went on amazing world trips making news about the banks their robbed and the rich people they stole from and then later killed for sport. Not once did the group of seven leave each other because they are family and family doesn’t end in blood even though the morons died so many times while doing a job but not once did they leave someone behind they waited and went to find them like they always did. Each person had a role and they played a special role but in every life Cassidy was always the mass killer because she just liked playing that role so her brothers and father figure don’t have to worry about witnesses seeing them or having to deal with annoying people, but she loves working with her family because that’s what they are family, she’s with people who love her and love to spend everyday with their younger sister. As years go on they finally stopped going on heist and just stopped everything and sadly they aged and finally lived their last life but they spent it with family and that last life was the best one any of them have ever lived and their family was the one that alway made it best because as the father of the group past away the last six stayed together and as they all slowly passed on into their new adventure Cassidy was the last to lay on her deathbed and finally when she died she was once again welcomed with open arms and a new adventure started but this time they never died or got hurt since all of them were dead and in the pearly gates.

Not What They Think

I might be a little crazy for dating a vagabond but he works for the most powerful crime boss in town and our meeting was one that probably would be the most strange but meeting him that way was also what made me fall in love with him. Three years ago I was in a gas station buying simple things I needed for the week until a large group of people walked in not paying much attention until a gun shot filled my ears making me hide. “Why did you kill him? He was giving us the money!” hearing a deep chuckle I hide more against the wall covering my ears shaking. “oops sorry I couldn’t resist” hearing more gun fire outside then a huge explosion shook the building shake shelves fell and items went flying and one of the shelves above me covered me perfectly so I was hidden away from the world “COPS ARE HERE!” a new voice yelled from outside and gun fire ran out around me moments passed when a face appears in from of me they were on the floor covering their head then they saw me hiding “guys we have a civilian in here!” staring at the blood covered male then looking up at a tall buff male with a mask on “yeah boss we have a girl in here” The one I believe to be  the boss comes over and hands the blond one the bag full of money “take her out the back door and meet us at the boat” being taken out the back door and following the blond and masked criminals I’m happy to hear some officers speak to them but feeling someone grab my neck with a gun to my temple the calm side of me broke and I started to struggle but stop when the grip on my neck got tighter “let the girl go!” walking back with the masked one I’m pushed against the ladder and forced to climb with both men behind me the gun still pointed at me “Nice view” I could just hear the smirk from the masked one kicking him in the head he groans “Hey that was a compliment Jesus” moving faster we get to the roof and that’s when more gun fire rings out and off we ran. I followed them even when I didn’t have to but I did for some reason I wanted to stay with the masked one longer and he knew I was there but I guess he allowed me to stay since he put his gun away only to grab me and put me over his shoulder as I scream in pain a stray bullet shoots me through the thigh, the masked criminal vanished from the cops and lucky for the two of us we fell through a weak roof of an old warehouse the building collapsed from the lack of support meaning we were trapped. Hitting the floor the world went black. When I finally woke up the masked man was sitting against the wall and I could finally see his face and his eyes were a soul piercing baby blue and his hair was a dirty blond with a bit of bright blond mixed in I go to stand only to cry out and fall seeing my pant leg ripped off and tied around the wound stopping the bleeding “Don’t stand just yet you don’t want to put pressure on the wound or you could hurt the muscles more” sighing I lay down using my coat as a pillow “How long?” “three hours but I’m surprised you’re still alive since you hit your head on the way down but all you have is a bruise and a killer headache” looking at the collapsed ceiling I sigh and look at him “My name is Meg what’s yours?” his blue eyes stare at me and behind his eyes show little emotion “Vagabond and that’s all you need to know” “Isn’t a vagabond someone who travels from place to place without a home?” “Yes but I’m not going to tell you my real name just so you can tell everyone my name” nodding I lay down and touch my tight “Why did you help me? “You ask a lot of questions get some sleep I’ll make sure we get out of here and you get your leg looked at but for now just get some sleep” I was pretty tired but I didn’t want to trust him but then again I felt safe so I fell asleep and when I woke up again I felt warmth around me and I could feel someone’s breath on my neck so opening my eyes I see vagabond with his arms wrapped around me. To be honest he looked really cute when he sleeps even for a criminal I fell back asleep to once again feel arms around me but I was woken up with a bright light hitting my face whining I moved my face closer to the warm object hearing mumbles of voices I ignored them all to sleep into the warm mass that is holding me. I wake up in a bed with a long shirt on and to my left a pair of sweat pants, also seeing my thigh was wrapped in real medical supplies I put the pants on and walk out of the large room and into a freak penthouse where the group from the gas station sat on a large couch “hey look she’s awake” “Yeah I was sure James killed her” “HEY! I told you not to use my real name around citizens!” “sorry Jesus like it matters now? she’s here because of you” a fight broke out among James and the short one “Don’t worry about them boys will be boys and I should know I live with five of them” a pretty women stood beside me “and I was the one to change you and clean up your leg, I also kept the bullet I pulled from you if you want to keep it” she chuckles softly “I’m Lindsay by the way”  “Meg and thank you I was a little worried the masked one did” she chuckles and shakes her head “James maybe a killer but he wouldn’t do that he’s evil but not a monster trust me I know him like the back of my hand”. Years passed and I’m still living with the six criminals but a certain masked one gained my affection and today we are married and I work beside him as a hacker but I’ve never had to kill someone and I hope I never have to but in this line of work I just might have to.

Among The Last

“Why did that person just sneak out the back window?” my mother stared at me with an angry look on her face and I just looked at the window then back at her “you saw it too?” the look I gave my mother she knew that I had no idea who or what that was so we just stared at the window where we noticed glowing eyes looking at us. My mother rushed to the window going to close it but this monster shoved it’s grey face inside the window and grabbed my mother’s head it hissed at her and pulled her body through the window into the night, hearing her scream made me freeze in fear but I grabbed my sneakers and a flashlight and I followed my mother’s screams but after I got so far into the woods they stopped spinning around trying to find any trace of my mother until I felt something warm and wet fall on my shoulder and run down my shoulder and arm. Slowly looking up I see my mother’s body just hanging there without her head, the body drops and the trees above me snap and move like something was climbing through them I don’t wait around to see what it is so I just run and sadly I run away from my house. Trees slap my cheeks as I run past them panting heavily tears burned my eyes as I felt something running behind me it’s fast and the footsteps are heavy due to it’s height as I ran to escape the same fate my mother faced I saw a figure about my height walking carefree so I run over begging for help grabbing their jacket I shove my face into them crying and begging for help and hearing them chuckle and wrap their arms around me I feel uneasy and try to pull away but he growls and grabs my hair yanking my head back so I’m staring at the monster that’s just standing there staring behind us watching. “Don’t you dare pull away from me you are mine I waited to long for you to be mine and I’m not letting you go now!” he yelled at me making me whimper in fear and nod as best I could “I wasn’t going to leave I just wanted to see your face” he kissed my jaw and I could feel him smile against my skin and I soon saw his face and I knew who he was his name is Eddie and he kept saying how he loves me but as soon as I look away from him or get pulled away by someone he goes insane by attack the said person beating them to a bloody pulp saying the have no right to touch a goddess like myself and he’s scared me “E-Eddie what is that?” I glance at the tall monster “just a little something I made to help me keep you safe from anyone who dares to try to take you from me, like that whore of a mother who tried to lock you away so I couldn’t see you and we couldn’t be happy” he kissed both my cheeks and we start to walk away I still feel scared knowing that monster is still behind us just watching me as if I’m a rabbit I’m sure Eddie knows I’m scared so he sends the monster away and the last thing anyone every heard of me was the night my mother’s body was found torn apart but her head was never found but that’s only because that thing ate her head and tossed the skull with the others it has collected over the past year and as for me I’m stuck here…with Eddie but he treats me like a princess and I will admit I had feelings for him at one point but now…it’s probably just the trauma of being locked away but I’ve come to love him and I want to stay with him forever.
