"Sir, I have a message for you. You were busy during the call, so I took a note."
The blonde doctor turned his chair, eyes showing exshaustion but he just took a breath and another gulp of coffee.
"Who was it?"
"Your daughter's pre-school, Doctor."
He froze, the mug half raised to his mouth.
"What?! Why?! What's happened?!"
Kate, a pretty little thing just out of medical school, jumped, hugging her little clear clipboard to her chest.
"N-Nothing, Dr. Watson, I promise!" She squeaked, making John realize he must've scared the poor girl. "T-They just called to see if she's alright."
(John scares me when he yells ;-; Like seriously. -Writer)
"What do you mean?" He asked, calmer this time, but only slightly.
"Appearently she's been missing quite a bit of school, and they were calling to see how she was and to speak to you. I told them you were busy, but they said they would call back later."
John looked at her with confusion, but with a glance to his desk, at a ph
Business Matters - a short DID story (part 1)It was finally time to put the plan into action. All of the smaller stores and businesses had been warned as well as the police... and Nina Lindvers was already on her way to pay a visit to Thomas Jensen. She wasn't alone though. Sandra Gaillard insisted on coming along, in order to keep an eye on things.Business Matters - a short DID story (part 1)12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“And where exactly is this Jensen-guy right now?”, Sandra asked from the passenger's seat, as she tucked her knives away in her holster underneath her jacket.
The inside of Vito's family van was dark and only lit by the dashboard, making even Sandra's purple eyes and long, silvery-gray hair look normal for a change.
Nina sat at the wheel of the bulky vehicle and guided it through the streets. It wasn't particularly fast or stylish, but at least subtle and reliable. “I know the streets inside out around hhere”, she said. “I wouldn't call it a scenic part of the city though... unless you're into watching smoke stacks from your balcony.”
Cold Case: Part 1 - Relativity Episode 34 A sharp wind blew in from the north, off the lake.

"This feels more like January than mid-December. I'm afraid of what it's gonna be like in a few weeks."
Overcast hurried his steps to keep up with her. "You never know. It may end up mild. We had a winter like that a few years back."
It was a Friday night, which was usually brisk for crime. Despite being out for two hours, they had only run into one incident of disorderly conduct. The police scanner had only sounded twice, reporting similarly minor occurrences which law enforcement were able to handle themselves.
"It's too cold for crime," she said. "We should head back."
"Blizzard wanted us out until at least midnight, remember?" He pointe
Alive - Chapter XVIIII walked in and placed my hand on the doorpost as I slowed down to examine the new surroundings. I stared up to a staircase that occupied almost the entire hall. My foot was placed on the first step and I proceeded upward. The walls were cracked and created the illusion of collapse, the floor was grey with dust and sand, the windows were broken and crushed. Spider webs illuminated the large manor’s possible abandonment.Alive - Chapter XVIII21 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My hand followed the handrail and I struggled towards the second floor, following the sweet smell of a delicate flower. I was distracted by the scent and forgot to check the positions of my feet, almost wailing and falling through a crack in the stairs. I caught my grip in the nick of time and sighed in relief.
Like possessed, I continued the way up and disappeared behind a corner as I entered a long corridor. The red paint on the walls was barely visible under the rags and dirt. The carpet running over the length of the floor was covered in sand and mud, puddles

It was a dark and stormy night. I am just a rag. My skin has crumbled, my nails are cracked and green, my voice sounds like rocks smashing into one another, my eyes slowly became discolored, and I was unloved. I was pale like the paper. My mother had divorced with my father, who had gambled away our lives. My mother quickly divorced when one of the gambler came to us to "claim us dolls". We came out the backyard and escaped with our lives. We never heard of our father again. We had been sent photos of our father tied up and bleeding. His left eye was scar and you could see bruises all over his hands, face, and he was shown in a video once. He did not seem to breath. He was lifeless as we soon were. The gamblers kept on telling us he was alive and wanted us to come to them. My mother burned all proof, even the house after the gambler left.
We were poorer than the rats. We did our best to live. My mother had been found by a rich man, who lo
LittleblondeAngel, (A Novel), Chapter One...Life itself retreaded into the gloom as the shadows of a moonless night crept across the landscape of seemingly desolate woods. Desolate except for one single soul. In the heart of the deadly silence that made up the old forgotten forest, was placed a small house at the base of a diminutive mountain. Just inside the minute corridor of the tiny house was a little room lit by only soft candlelight, and the illumination of a laptop screen. The laptop was set on the small lap of a tiny little girl with straight, fine, long blonde hair. She couldn’t be more than 13 years old.LittleblondeAngel, (A Novel), Chapter One...9 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
For some reason that may seem inconceivable to some city dwellers, she was managing to get a pretty good Wi-Fi connection tonight. She fiddled with her mouse waiting for someone to come on automatic chat. On her laptop screen, she was in view of her site profile, which only said one thing:
Finally, the chat bubble appeared, followed by a signature “pop.”

Chapter 13 - Moving AroundWe sleep on top of the parking garage, in a small corner that nobody would think to look for someone, and someplace a zombie definitely wouldn't look. We barely fit in the spot, but once we got in, we got in a comfortable position and tried to go to sleep, despite the low groaning, shuffling, and crashing of the zombies moving around outside of the parking garage. The entire night, I can feel Alex shaking from fear against me. I imagine that once we get out of this, if we ever do, Alex and I both will be nervous wrecks. She is already reduced from the strong, defiant girl that tried to force me away when we first met. I hope she is strong enough to make it through what's ahead.Chapter 13 - Moving Around10 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
When we wake up, the sunlight doesn't seem very bright, for being on the roof of a parking garage. Once Alex crawls out of the corner so that I can get out, I see why. The entire sky is a haze of gray clouds. I wonder why the people experimenting on us would do this, if it was even them. Then it hits me.

I sigh heavily as I get up from my seat and away from my book to tend for my ailing father... once again. He had been sick for so long I could hardly remember what he was like when he was healthy. Even more confusing, though, is why I have never caught his disease. It's the most contagious disease in our country, and it's always been a mystery as to why I have not yet caught it. Actually, my entire past history with diseases is always any person's mystery, and always will be, apparently. Second grade. Everyone at school had the flu. Everyone passed it on to everyone and anyone they came into contact with - it was highly contagious at the time... and yet I never caught it. Eighth grade. Everyone got chicken pox, my best friend at the time included. I, being me, ignored the fact that she was sick and stayed with her and encouraged her throughout the entire time period that this specific sickness reigned in her life. And yet, I never myself received chicken po

It was a small warehouse located a few miles from the uptown area. In years past, it had been used by the police department to store confiscated property. Since then, a larger, more secure facility had been built. Instead of abandoning the building, it had been converted into a secondary headquarters. When a situation became too dangerous for law enforcement officials to remain at the main office, they could move to the remote location and operate from there. A small staff was kept on premises at all times, but for the most part, the building was empty and away from prying eyes. Which is why Aaron Brooks chose it as their regular location to meet now that he was police superi
Alive - Chapter XIXAs the terror repeated in my mind, I stirred and reached my arm away from its uncomfortable posture trying to support my head, coming loose from my leaning pose. My side hurt as I readjusted position and I groaned to an upcoming headache.

I noticed the pause in my movements and blinked to the strengthening sight of a train compartment with strong light penetrating the small room through the large window. I softened my muscles and sank back into the seat, grasping my head in slight pain.
I felt the changed atmosphere that had shifted into tightness and due to the silence, I recognized the thought of being stared at. My head shifted and I looked at the vague figures sitting across the walkway. Eyes peered down at me, intimidating and dangerously aware.
“My head,” I moaned, standing to stretch my weary body. In the corner of my eye, I saw a recognizable expression written on so

Ravenswood entered behind her, his forehead creased in worry. "Are you sure you haven't seen him all day?"
"I haven't seen him since the last debriefing."
"That was a few days ago."
"I know." Getting down on her hands and knees, she looked under the storage cabinet. "Not there."
The detective rubbed the back of his neck. "Maybe he's just hiding. Cats do that sometimes. My old cat used to disappear when he had a cold or wasn't feeling well."
As much as Melody hoped that was the case, the evidence suggested otherwise. "He hasn't eaten any food out of his bowl, and his water bowl is full. If he was in the house, I'd think he'd eat or drink something."
"Atlas," Ravenswood called. "Locate Koko."
