The reveal
       Sifu twitched slightly as his feet seemed to have sunk deeper into the padded floor with the extra gravity the situation just gained.  The man, or at least he assumed it was male, lay somewhat stiff wrapped in what appeared to be several layers of duct tape.  He could hear whistling coming from the other room but it was not Dan’s.  It was the kill bill soundtrack at a volume inappropriate for the most heavily speaker laden metal concerts.
      Poking his head into the room he could see Dan mopping up water in the back training hall.  Dan’s mopping was erratic as though the mop was holding him up at times. When he looked up he could see the roof access covered over with a tarp.
      “DAN!  DAN!”  Sifu screamed at the top of his lungs.
      Dan swung around a smiled.  He pulled out his phone and tapped away and the music stopped.

     “So have you heard from the guys?”  Dan swept as Sifu came into the studio.
     “No, I think Grandmaster will have them pretty busy for the first while.  Before I sent them up he was telling me he was going to put them through some good paces.  Make them see their own faults and that kind of stuff.”  Sifu opened some windows.
     “Ah, yeah. Those were fun.  I think he does that with everyone.”
     “Mostly, it depends on how long the student has been with us.  In this case these guys are on a bit of an accelerated course.  It will take them years after they learn the stuff for them to get comfortable with it.”  Sifu headed for his office but turned before he left the studio.  “Are you sure you’re ok with watching this place while we are gone?”
     Dan put his broom in the corner.  He looked around the studio.

Jack, Jim and Blake sat together and sipped on the sweetest of teas.  The sweat was drying in mountainous patterns along their backs.  The room was quiet.
“Do you think he’s alright?”  Jack broke the silence.
“I am sure he is.  C’mon, we're talking about Caleb.”  Jim’s confidence did not show.
“Well, personally, I think he’s going to make it.  We have not seen him eat since we left.  So I figure if he’s not here he may have stopped to make himself a sandwich or something.”
“Ha ha ha.”
The group spun around to see the large figure filling the doorway.  He still held his massive duffle bags and wore his backpack.  He lumbered in and grimaced and skipped to his friends.  He made his trip look easy but on the inside he was reeling in pain.  He felt like his whole body was going to fail him.  He made this effort so his friends would not worry.

      Caleb pulled a ladle out of one of his upturned bags.  The boys had just been
tossed like a salad in the back of the van for the last ten minutes and it had not been
long since the ride smoothed out and stopped.  Jim, Jack, and Blake stood around
him waiting for the doors of the van to open.  It was dead silent, you could have
heard the faintest of sounds but there was nothing to give away what might be going
on outside of the van.
     The door whipped open and the four chums screamed as they went to attack
but all that stood there was a small boy with a shaven head and ochre robes.
     “Well what are you waiting for?  I haven’t got all day you know!  Fast fast!  
The Ninja might see us stopped.”  He began to pull the confused and bewildered
brethren out of the van.  “OK, who the smart guy that packed all this stuff cuz, I’m

It was early, the summer sun had just begun to rise.  Blake’s eyes were still half closed when he came around the corner to find Jim and Jack staring in disbelief at the enormous pile of luggage Caleb was carrying on his back.
“What the hell?” Blake’s question turned the attention of his three friends to him.  “Sifu said pack light!”
“Ah, so he did. But when I asked Sifu what he meant by “light” he told be if I can’t carry it I cannot take it. Well, here I stand with it all on my back and shoulders.”
This as a statement was true.  He could indeed carry it.  The pile was massive and stood nearly two and half feet above his head and a foot out from him in all directions. He had a large duffle bag in each hand as well.
“Besides, we are going to be gone for at least a month.” Caleb grinned.  “We need supplies.”
A smack could be heard.  Sifu approached.

       “So, can you go?”  Jack was wringing his hands.  It’s been a couple of days since the guys were able to get together and they were all eagerly waiting for answers.  It was decided by Sifu that the four of them would be sent off for emergency training so that they would be better prepared to defend against the impending ninja menace.
“Yep, she said it if it going to help out with our special “problem” that I could go.  Personally, I think she’s just happy to see me out of the house.”  Caleb was beaming.  He was chewing on some beef jerky like he was Babe Ruth with a wad of tobacco.
      “So, it’s official then, we are heading to the secret temple Sifu was talking about.”  Jim leapt up and slapped Blake on the back.  “Can you freaking believe it!  Yeeehaaaa!”

For Change
It was late in April and some old friends finally agreed to go through with what they
hoped would provide them with some relief in these hard times.  The village they
had lived in for the first 20 years of their lives was falling to pieces.  The local
magistrate all but gave up on producing anything from the mines and even the town
blacksmith filled his wagons and headed for the larger cities.  The rural communities
were crushed and emptying out fast.
So with no work available, they could only hope that adventuring would give them
some income and maybe a bit of a reprieve from their current ho-hum existence.  
Scott was fresh from the academy.  He came home to a town too poor to afford his
services and spent most of his time working for free just to keep his magical talents
sharp.
“I know we agreed to do this thing but what if we do have to kill someone?”

MAd Thad and his capable Canines
      The oversized black wolf snuck around in the shadows until he was ever so close to the mailbox.  From just outside of the streets lights view he prepared his drop off.  A quick dash followed by a stumble and a slapping of the metal box was seen by nearly everyone in a hundred yard radius.  
     The wolf spun around in front of the box placing a single digit to his muzzle. “Shhhhhhhhhh!”
     He dropped the envelopes in and dashed away snickering.
     Mordecai was pulling the sleep from his eyes when the mail lady arrived that morning.  He could see her pass by the front window from his prone position on the couch.  It was how he normally woke up unless he had been sleepwalking.  In which case he would have woken in his bed.  He rolled off the couch and his knee landed in a bowl of soggy cereal and milk.  It’s funny how often this happens.   He hates Crispy Crumpets cereal and he lives alone.  Where does this stupid bowl of cereal come from?  As he usua

Free for all to Sea
      The intense sun brightly lit Chazore’s fur.  The grass tickled her paws as she
walked and looked over the letter.  She wondered how she would deal with the
problem.
     “Dear Milady Chazore,
     The royal navy has been alerted to a problem out at sea. It seems several
merchant vessels have gone missing in the Straight of Capsan.  This area is
invaluable at saving time when traveling across the great expanse that is the eastern
ocean.  It is, after all, the only safe area for nearly a thousand kilometers where large
ships can travel without fear of hitting the rocks in that regions shallow waters.  We
have sent several ships out to see if they encounter problem or anomalies but
nothing seems to take the bait.  
     It would please her majesty if you would use your skills to the advantage of
the merchants and put an end to or give a solution for this problem.

When the rains came by Caleb Knott
      As I sat in the diner and pondered where the day would take me, Leon walked in.  He was tall and well built.  He seemed sharp around the edges like he was in high definition.  He could have been an artist’s rendition, if the artist had never seen a man before and was trying to make it look real.  The normal bustle of the diner extinguished in a wave as he passed.  The patrons knew Leon well and seeing Leon walk by was like a homecoming for many of them.  The regulars shared common ground and could pick up with each other where they left off at any given time.  Even though they knew Leon, none of them talked to him as he passed.  The pauses in conversation as he walked by let him know they acknowledged him, and that was fair enough for him.

I voted today.
     You think living in a democratic utopia would be nothing but good times fuelled by raging Romanesque orgies.  However, it seems that every day the system seems to break down just a little bit more.  Business for me, in a world like this, should be slow and for the most part is.  When people have a problem and need it solved, they come to me.  I’m one of the lowly P.I.s that still feels the world needs us.
     A few years ago this small planet took a vote, a big one.  We, as a whole it seems felt that everything involving the common man should be voted upon.  Sounds ridiculous but it works.  We each have a card and an impenetrable I.D. system that allows us to vote anytime on any issue we feel is important to us.  The government puts the bill out to be passed and waits two weeks.  At the end of it they tally up the votes, and if the bill gains more than fifty percent of the total votes, less a couple o

When we last left off the Boys learned that ninja’s are everywhere.  Sifu has decided to give them extra training to help them survive the battle between the forces of the martial masters and the ninja.

     “So, these are the five ancient herbs that will protect you from the poisons the ninjas use.  They can also help with some cuts and abrasions.”  Sifu handed each of them a small leather pouch containing the herbs he had just shown them how to prepare.
     
     “Sifu, I’m so sorry.”  Caleb hung his head.
     “Huh, for what?”
     “I’ve been using these to make tea.”
     Sifu looked at Caleb.  He reached out and patted him on the head and plucked one of the few remaining hairs.  Caleb winced ever so slightly.  Sifu, placed his hand on his shoulder.

"Hey guys, thanks for having practice at night this week.  I could not have made it otherwise."  Jack was always gracious.  Since the group of them started practicing together it was much easier for him to make it through testing at the Kung Fu academy.
"No problem! It's always a good time and thanks for hosting.  After all that coffee I think I am going to be up all night!"  Caleb looked forward to the work out and knew he was benefiting too.  His love of coffee was bitter sweet.  Anytime he had it past the noon hour he could not sleep.  But jack made a mean pot of coffee and it was hard to resist.
"If you want I can come by and club you unconscious?"  Caleb was sometimes unsure if Jim was serious or not.
