NHP Chapter 5: Studies

     Roberta's eyes snapped open after another fitful night's sleep.  She had dreamt of the night she met Friedman for the fourth time in as many nights, but each time it ended differently from what she remembered.  She grabbed her phone off of the nightstand and pressed the power button; 08:45 flashed across the screen for a few moments before going dim again.  I really need to stop sleeping in, Roberta thought with a sigh.     Roberta rose and stretched from her queen-sized mattress in her current residence: an apartment about forty-five minutes from her home in Cheyenne and an hour from the base; she had someone as a live-in caretaker for

     Zoe sat alone in the glass-roofed food court of the mall, brilliant winter light pouring in from above.  She walked there from the diner near the hotel, aimlessly wandering against the biting wind until she came across the mall.  It had been bigger than almost any building she had ever seen, at least in terms of the acreage it covered; the fact that it had hundreds of stores with anything Zoe could think of and more amazed her and even unnerved her a bit.  Her own spoils from one of the more than a dozen clothing stores she passed on the way to the food court rested beside her—a purple shirt, a pair of loose-fitting tan cargo pants

     Roger didn't even open his eyes as he stretched.  He had slept well, better than he had since December and far better than he ever could on an airplane.  He opened his eyes, glanced at his watch, and smiled: it was nearly twelve-thirty in the afternoon; he had slept for over four hours.  It didn't completely make up for the sleep he lost last night, but it would be good enough.     Roger sat up and scratched his head.  The blinds were closed, but some light managed to get through the fabric and partially illuminate the room: it was a bit cramped for two people, and obviously hadn't been used in a

     Roberta had gotten five hours of sleep in the medical ward before returning to her on-base housing to pack.  There really was not much for Roberta to pack: a few articles of clothing, a couple pairs of shoes, and two photographs—one of she and Ian on their wedding day, and the other of those that founded the Foreman Project from fifteen years ago.  Everything was packed, save for that last picture; she was still looking over the six people in the photo.     The six people in the photo had been sworn to secrecy, under the threat of being charged with treason if they broke their silence. On the far left of the group was Roberta herself,

     General Flaherty stood in the middle of Specialist Friedman’s empty room.  It had been cleared out by the guards of all of Friedman’s belongings, and the blood had already been removed from the walls so that it wouldn’t mold or smell like rot.  Only he remained in the room with the black orb that had ripped Sergeant Donovan apart.  Almost done, the General thought.  All we need to do is seal that thing in there.     The General turned around and left the room through the open door.  Outside the room, three groggy-looking mages for the Army stood at attention, all three having been filled in on the situation at hand.  &

     Dr. Monroe was sitting up on the edge of her bed in the Hospital Ward, the IV that had been in her arm now sat on the table beside her.  Other than some breathing difficulties and a bit of wooziness—which the other doctors had said were the result of a broken rib and a concussion, respectively—Roberta felt perfectly fine.  She grabbed her glasses off the table next to the IV, put them on and looked at the mirror near her bed: looking back at her was a fifty-three year-old widow of four years, standing at about five-foot-four with graying dark brown hair and hazel eyes.     Her blouse was unbuttoned half way down, so she bega

NOTE: This occurs after Zoe's loss, as that was what would have been canon.  While what happened with Roberta, Patrick, and Henry still occurred, what happened with Max and Lydia did not.  In addition, what transpired between Sharkie and Zulani still occurred, in spite of the fact that it would not have been canon.      Zoe sat at the foot of her bed with her eyes on her left arm and Lambda sitting at her side.  The hand and forearm were wrapped in sterile white gauze after being slathered with disinfectant to make sure the bite did not become septic.  Underneath the bandages t

My Bio
My real name is Luke, I'm from Buffalo, NY, and have lived in Buffalo for most of my life. I can't draw to save my life, as evidence by the gallery. I do get some fair shots with my digital camera from time to time, but that's about all. I'm trying my hand at something else, but that might not come into play for a while (maybe a few years or so), but I can't wait to finish it. Also, random shit will pop into my skull, and I'll write it down. Another thing, I like doing OCTs (Original Character Tournaments), but they can only be ones in which written entries are allowed; if someone would be willing to draw for me, I'd be willing to write.

On the recent lack of activity

Okay, so I'm really sorry that I haven't been posting here as of late.  The main reason is this: I have a full time job, and July was just insane for me.  That being said, I haven't stopped writing, in fact I have been working on redoing parts of The Harbingers.  But on top of work, there have also been Magic the Gathering events (and one 15 minutes away), issues with my grandfather (who has Alzheimer's and is slowly digressing into I have no idea what), and just generally looking for another job. So what does this mean?  Well, for one, it means Neohypogeum likely won't be updated until the end of August at the earliest.  Hopefully I don't l
