Bob,

I have no idea where to send this, but I have to write it anyway.

You did so much, for so many people. You took care of so many things and yet you forgot one thing. Dammit, why couldn't spare a bit of that for yourself?

But that wouldn't have been you, would it? You always were one of the most giving, unselfish people I'd ever known. You helped people you barely knew and asked for nothing in return.

Dammit again, why, why couldn't you just spend a little of that to take care of yourself?

And no, I wasn't alive back then. My grandfather was, though. He made his living as a butcher back in the thirties, moving between Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri as the work was available. I also know, from personal experience, that he was one mean SOB if provoked and a sane person did not want to make him mad at them.

Back when the original Bonnie and Clyde movie with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway came out he once told me that he'd known Clyde Barrow. Who was a mean SOB (that coming from one) who grandad wouldn't turn his back on.

I recently received permission to post stories by Diana Kimberly Heche here and was very excited about that. She is a fine writer, story teller, and a lot of her stories are old enough that they aren't getting the attention I think they deserve. With Diana's approval, I'll be posting around two chapters a week until the story is all told. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

For now, aside from comments, anything you would like to say to Diana should be sent to me and I'll forward it to her.

Maggie

Thank you all.

I was idly checking things today and decided to check my account just to make sure things were as they should be. Then I scrolled to the bottom to see that I'd been given over twelve thousand Kudos. I'm humbled.

Thank you all.

New Universe.

Okay, I'm probably an idiot but I have new open universe for people to play in.

The premise is that magic is slowly coming back into the world. With some very interesting effects. Creatures from mythology are returning to the Earth, even the story book ones.

The Price of Betrayal and my currently ongoing 'Softly, Zephyr, Oh Come Softly' are in this universe.

If you have an idea please contact me and we'll discuss it.

That's all for now, other than the universe is called The Magic Returns'.

Softly Zephyr, oh Come Softly chapter 5


 


Zephyr

I had to really work at keeping the 'predator' part of me from showing too much though I knew I couldn't hide all of it or all the time. So the people in that shelter, or whatever it was knew I was dangerous and potentially deadly.

But they took me in. Even knowing that they took me in.

Common Courtesy.

This isn't directed at anyone here, just some in-general observations and a recent experience of mine.

I was at the grocery store today and their self checkout lanes were down, so of course the registers that were going had long lines and people were patient about it given the obvious problems the place was having with its systems.

An offer to my readers.

This is something new at this site and if Erin doesn't veto it, well someone has to break new ground at times, right?

For those of you following 'The Price of Betrayal'...

The clues are all there in the story, okay maybe there is one thing I haven't given out yet, but that doesn't matter here.

But all the important stuff has a solution and I've told you all what they are in the story up to this point.

Now...

If you find them.

The first person to PM me with the whole shebang, who has actually figured this one out, gets a custom made story from me made to what you want.

Title Change.

For those of you who have read Djinn Games, thank you for the comments and kudos.

But I changed my mind about something. The title just hadn't felt right to me, so the story is now 'The Price of Betrayal', so don't jump on it thinking it's another new one and get disappointed, please.

Why did I change it after posting the first chapter?

I dunno, it just felt right?

Finished.

Well, Singing to the Moon is finally finished. Mainly because I kind of ran out of things to do to -- umm, do with Cindy just now. I'm sure my muse will find other interesting things in that nature as time goes on, though.

Now, Carmilla has been waiting patiently, or at least as patiently as she can, for her turn again, and Dahlia has been beating me about the head and shoulders with chaos to get attention. So I'll get back to those two for the time being just to keep the peace.

FROM CATHY: Sorry for the delay in posting this chapter. A computer problem is to blame, but all is fixed and here we go!

An incident prods our heroes to jump into action. Chapter 9 will follow very soon, I promise.

Lady of the Lake

I am the Lady of the Lake. I tempt, I attract, I play. I am death in a beautiful guise. What you wish, I am, I will be, and will give you pleasure as you've never known. I will make your dreams come true.
