Beached WhaleI pull up in a surprisingly full parking lot next to a beach that was, until recently, closed off from public access. Reaching into my glove compartment, I pull out the invitation from a group called “SLM,” which I guess is a new, exclusive club. If it’s so exclusive, then why are there so many people?Beached Whale21 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Slowly getting out of my car, I reach for my bag, pulling it out of the passenger side and out of the driver’s side.
I stand up, looking around, seeing other women walking around the public, but no men in sight.
I typically get asked the question, “How do you do it?” pertaining to my body. It makes sense with my recent entry in modeling, yet, while many people don’t believe me, I truthfully respond “With good diet and exercise. No pills. No surgery. None of that. Proper care of my body. I’d rather look like a naturally aged ninety-five year old when I reach that age, and give advice to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren that the

UntitledI held my hand up against the frosted window. I could not feel a thing. It was like everything was dead. There was no life left in what we used to call home. But that is okay, this is our new home now. It isn't perfect, but it is a pleasant place. Every single day, I would stare down at the lonesome Earth circling the dying sun.Untitled11 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
The sun had already consumed Mercury and Venus and was slowly making its way to Earth. There was no water left on the surface of the once beautiful planet. I knew today was the day that we would see Earth for the last time. I watched as the bursts of fire travelled from the sun and ignited the Earths atmosphere. It was like someone had took a lighter to a ball of wool. Slowly the flames took over Earth and then it was simply gone. It had only taken seconds for the whole planet to be consumed, and after, there was no sign that Earth was ever there. I knew if I where to come back tomorrow, Mars would be next. Then, Jupiter, then, Saturn, and the rest.
Top Hat Zibhtin had been observing them for awhile now. The blue and green planet had flourished since the last time his race had visited. The creatures living there had changed overtime and grown intelligent, even with their blithe nature and transient lives. They had acquired the ability to retain knowledge, yet they still lacked civility. These animals referred to themselves as humans, and it was finally time to visit them again.Top Hat16 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
He had been there the previous time his kind had visited the terrestrial body the humans called Earth. It was utter chaos. The foreign species had a fear of things different from their own kind, a fear of what they were unable to comprehend. They had called his race monsters. Aliens. Extraterrestrials. They had tried killing them off, leaving few to return home from what was supposed to be a peace mission. So this time, Zibhtin would stay out of sight.
He moved through the streets of a bustling civilization which he knew to

Belly Bumps and Bruises (Part II)
Starring: The Ladies of the UWWL
The pair of Slammestra and Neon Ninja has just acknowledged
the confirmation that two of the wayward possessed wrestlers have been
apprehended. “Which way now Ninja?” asks Tamaya Studdleman, the overly
developed leg muscled wrester. Her partner Mitsuki places the compass sapphire
in the palm of her hand. “That way.” points the colorfully dressed ninja.
The area is a flood of red and blue flashes when the two
turn down the block. Standing in the midst of the street is the silhouette of
Grappla with her arms elongated. The pair of wrestlers approaches the scene and
sees the look of pure evil joy over the face of the possessed wrestler. The
police yell out an order for Grappla to lie on the ground or they will open
fire. The elastic woman replies by sending a fist flying into the face of the
officer issuing the order.
The police open fire on the stretchable wrestler. The pol
Own that shit!Switch drove up to the house and took his helmet off as he dismounted his motorcycle. He approached the door with caution, getting into a defensive crouch and had a smirk on his face as he reached for the door handle, expecting to get pounced on by overactive twin boys. He opened the door quickly and readied himself but was disappointed when his nephews weren't there to greet him.Own that shit!8 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
He shrugged it off thinking maybe they were getting too old for that game and kicked his boots off. He announced he was home as he placed his helmet by the door.
"We're in the kitchen." he heard Astrum say through the hallway from the living room to the kitchen.
When he entered the kitchen, he saw Astrum and Geek both standing by the table as Eli and Ollie were seated on the other end of the table and were looking down at their hands that were folded in front of them.
Knowing they were getting in trouble, he silently went into the cupboard and poured himself a glass of water. As he wal
To Save Us AllThe hardest part of going was saying goodbye to my family. They were allowed to spend the evening with me on the day prior to launch. Everyone was worried. How could they not be? I was leaving the planet.To Save Us All23 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Those not so close tried to support me the best they knew how. Cards, flowers, hugs, kisses. But what about the support my real family needed? I was going to be gone a while. Was I going to come back? That question was one we couldn’t even begin to touch. Too much pain.
The last dinner was hard. My wife barely spoke. Poking at her meal like a child torturing a bug. The kids were okay at the time. The power of the young to be fully in the moment. Any little thing can take their mind off of the near (or distant) future. I was happy to see them smiling, enjoying the unfamiliar event.
After we were finished eating, we made our way down to my chambers. Small, suffocating, like a train car on steroids. The kids enjoyed a reading of Green Eggs and Ham, a classic, while my wife watched
I'm BLUE The house was strangely quiet for once as Astrum had taken Karra with him when he left to run errands hours ago to give Geek a break. By break, she would usually spend her spare time working on gadgets in her workshop or pestering Switch.I'm BLUE8 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Throughout the years, they had very much developed a sibling-like relationship. He would bug her or pull a prank and she would retaliate.
She was feeling particularly spiteful that afternoon after he had rigged one of her robots with a non-lethal explosive and she knew exactly what to do as a good way to pay him back.
Switch was on the couch in the living room playing video games that he learned to love so much now that they were living permanently on a planet inhabited by humans and Geek took the time to do some cleaning.
As she passed the living room she looked at the back of Switch and suddenly got an evil smirk as she swept her way into the room, purposefully getting close

Astrum looked over at Switch when they heard the panicked cry of Geek from upstairs. They dropped what they were doing in Astrum's lab and proceeded to run up the stairs two steps at a time.
The frantic woman, now a new mother to a beautiful half Burillian, half human baby girl, met up with the brothers in the hallway as she ran to get Astrum. She looked up at her husband with fear and cried "Something is wrong with Karra!"
He couldn't help but feel a slight panic himself as he too was new to parenthood and babies really weren't something he was familiar with. They don't write books about taking care of hybrid alien babies. Switch panicked as well. He loved Karra to pieces but hell if he knew what to do with babies either. Astrum gently moved Geek aside and ran to Karra's room, as Geek and Switch followed.
They all stopped at Karra's doorway to find the two month old baby in
