"It's the least we can do."

That's what they had said when they had come into his hospital room, clipboards in hand and curious, though not unkind, looks in their eyes.

It was natural for those who were healthy to be curious about the dying after all, and that was exactly what he had been doing, slowly and agonizingly, for the last three years.

It had started out innocuously enough, with a twinge in his temple when he would stand up or turn his head too quickly. The twinge had turned to a spike, and the spike into a burning lance, piercing his head with every movement.

For years he had devoted his life to becoming one of the most promising young talents in the computer technology world.

He felt it somewhat ironic that he would die not being able to stand looking at a monitor for more than five minutes without a morphine drip in place.

Glimmer Girl #4 - "Dementia Pugilistica" (Part 1)

For Judith Kramer, the script for ‘Growing Old Disgracefully’ was a life preserver in an ocean far from the shores of her former career. The project had been assigned two award-winning actors to star alongside her, and a number of television sketch comedy stars to keep the youth market happy. After eighteen years of struggling for air, both figuratively and literally, it was like returning home.

Chapter 6.
– I –

Why were we still here?

When I calmed down, and when the logical, rational part of my mind regained control, I stood up wearily and then took a long look around me.

Why were we still in this zombie infested desert island?

I wiped at my face, and blinked away what remained of my tears.

Had they – the Empress, the Battle Commission, and whoever else was involved – forgotten about us?

A Gentle Soul

This story started to write itself after the second of my three eye surgeries. I filled it out a bit today, and feel the need to post it and get some feedback. It has not gone to my editor, so blame all the errors on my shoddy proofreading. Of course, let me know if it is something you want to see more of. It will not be worked on weekly, but I might be able to get a chapter up every month or two: Dawn.
