My friends, my followers, praise the Savior!
Praise, praise the Savior... now today, my friends, I want to talk about something very important. You see, it all started with this certain young man that we all know. He was once a member of this flock but he doesn't come here much on Sunday mornings anymore. I'm not going to name him and single him out but many of you know of whom I speak. Anyway, I spoke with this young man recently, at his mother's house, and tried to get him to get back on the righteous path, praise the Savior! And do you know what he told me? He told me, Reverend Alljoy, I am having doubts -- doubts about my faith, doubts about the Gospels, about the divinity of the Christ, about the Church and the Message of the Third Revelation... and it near broke my heart, it near rent my heart in twain to hear this intelligent young man admit to these shameful doubts. How can I convince him, I wo

"Don't lie, to me! You loved me once, why are you realy leaving?" He thundered grabing her arm and twisting it so she faced him.
"I'm not lying. I don't like you Clarence, never have. I only pretended to because your Dad paid me to keep you out of trouble. But you see he hasn't paid me so I'm done."
"What about the kids?" Clarence said dumbstruck. How could Lorrie just up and leave even if his Dad had given her money to stay?
Lorrie shrugged, "They are yours, as a clone I don't have any maternal rights over them unless we are married. Not that I wanted them, it was just to keep you happy. I'd suggest you stop being so pitaful your Dad probably would have been better off to just cut his losses with you sooner."
Clarence jaw hung open as he stared and Lorrie in disbelief. His Dad had hired a clone to be his girlfriend for 8 years...

“Bloody hell. That's the third of those you've had in the last hour.”
Cain waved a hand in-front of his face as Milo sparked up another cigarette, sending a cloud of hazy smoke into the space between them. “If my Mum or Dad ever catch a whiff of this then they're gonna reckon it's me smoking the sodding things!”He scooted past Milo and grabbed at the handle of his bedroom window, making sure it was as wide open as he could possibly push it. “Why can't you just go outside?”
“You said I could smoke in here.” Milo protested between drags.
“Yeah, maybe the odd one,' Cain paused to cough, “Every now and then. But you're taking the Mickey now.”
“You know it helps calm me down.” Milo retorted.
“It doesn't actually.” Cain replied, adding a matter-of-fact tone to the last word. “If anything nicot

She shouted in a foreign language, and the cosmic forces readied themselves for the attack.
The demons came out of the recessed earth in droves, and those whom had fought the previous evening scrambled to safety, away from the demons who were far too powerful.
All except for one, whom had grabbed a powerful staff and prepared to defend the lines.
"AERIS!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!??" shouted a voice-Cloud's voice.
She took one look in Cloud's direction, before she took off into the line.
'This is my home, how can I not try my best to defend it!??' She thought to herself.
The demons were stronger than the previous evening; surely there had to be some sort of awful power source deep below.
The commander of the cosmic forces stopped the woman from advancing too far into the line. "You're the last of your kind. To lose you to them would be a travesty."
The woman cast a powerful spell t
A Love ParadoxThere was this enlightened master who called himself OSHO and whatever you know or don't know about him, she had remembered that he repeated many times, that life consists of paradoxes.A Love Paradox14 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
You want to sleep well at night? Work really hard all day, don't spear your strenght, engage. You want to be happy with what you have? Get rid of all you have and live like a beggar for a week and come back to what you had afterwards.
So she pondered and wondered, how is it that other men seem so very much attractive nowadays. She remembered that mind state tearing through common anxiety back in the day, when she was just out of her teenage years. In her twenties, the world was so much more terrifying, yet so many men seemed full of love essence and charms beyond belief.
And yet, it happened again. It seemed now, that this one magical man released something and opened her eyes to the miracles once more. And as usually, it happened through the internet. So the internet influenced her love life again. It
