PART THREE 19 How fast feelings can change, Nanok thought, keeping his eyes on the darkening road ahead. The car’s floodlights illuminated the way. A while ago, he thought, I wanted her. Now I can’t wait to drop her off wherever. What had he thought would happen today – that he would make this one …

My Friend Toby – He was a Good Frog

So I am about to cross the road, but the automobiles just keep roaring past. Just then I hear two little children behind me shouting, "There it is, the frog! It's going towards the road!" I look around - where is the frog? Finally I see him hopping past me. I think, maybe I should …

The War of the Pen and the Sword

Once upon a time there was a king in a land far from here. This king had one begotten son whom he loved to distraction. The king had one possession of his which he had never let anyone see or know about, not even his own dear wife, the queen, and he was determined to …

High School Reunion: Part One

PART ONE 1 Nanok was tall, broad-shouldered, with a rough look to him. His black leather jacket matched his shades and black Timberland boots. The face that sneered back at him from the mirror was clean-shaven and had a small scar under the left cheekbone like a dimple. He glanced at the big silver watch …
