Something something
We stumbled back to my hotel, just a few blocks away from the bar. Laughter and off tune lyrics filled the air around us.
She held me tight, trying to steal some heat from me, good thing I had plenty to spare that snowy night.
She looked to me, rosy cheeks and eyes, cool like the icicles that we passed on by, and smiled. I couldn't tell you if it was the considerable amount of alcohol inside of me or her that gave me the warm feeling inside, but I guess for now, it doesn't really matter.
The stairs gave her more trouble than they should have, and after the third failed attempt to ascend them, I decided to throw her over my shoulder and make my way up, her in tow. She squealed with a mixture of fright and delight, and even though the hour was late, I did nothing.
Tonight, they didn't matter.
I could always be polite tomorrow.
At the door, I fished around in my pockets with almost frozen hands, my fingers stiff from the cold. Pockets were patted and repatted as I tried to find the stupid

Day 1
1 August 2011
Today was the last day the sky would fall.
We had been told for months that there would be a meteor shower coming, that for a whole week, a whole asteroid field's worth of space debris would be raining down on us.
The public was assured that nothing landing would be larger than an inch or two in diameter. Still, that is an inch or two of something that could potentially be moving at around 64 kilometers per second, I don't care if it's only anything across, that's going to hurt like hell.
When the sky began to fall a week ago, I started to wear a helmet. My friends actually thought it was a good idea.
That was a first.
We all went down to the local army surplus store and shopped around.
Kevlar, steel, all worked just fine for our cause, although some people had issues with fitting.
Catherine is but 13, tiny head, and we weren't going to make her go around with a bicycle helmet, that would be boring.
Instead we bought foam from a store across the street and lined it enough

Valentine's Day What If
This had been planned for months, and I couldn't help but not sleep the night before.
The day before, I had told the staff that they all had the day off, that no one was to be out of bed and in the corridors before 9am and that there would be severe consequences if they disobeyed. I made it a point to stare directly at KChan while making this point.
But today, oh today would be a glorious day; everything was fitting into place so well!
I had received message last night that the caterers from the east had arrived, a little earlier than expected, but that meant they could get a few hours of sleep before coming in. Somehow that caterer, Chris, who had come in only to assist for the masquerade and decided to stay a little longer, caught wind of the plan and left a note on my desk a few days ago, volunteering himself for the day, no fee. No one had seen him come in that day, and no one had brought in his message, not even Kai's all seeing eyes.
Something about that caterer bothered me, but

Murder Pt. 1
I stood there dumbfound, looking down at the blade stuck three inches deep into my chest and the only thing I could think about is how it all went wrong.
For the last couple of days I spent my time working with the chefs, since the Valentine Masquerade had gone so well. They thought we could all benefit from working together for a little while longer, which was just the excuse I needed to stay and finish what I couldn't in the days before.
There was no specific place for me in the kitchen, I was a little bit of everything, so they had me working on their end game, their presentation. It was slightly less exciting than carving chunks of meat off of a freshly killed animal, slightly more than sitting there stirring the sauce to ensure even cooking.
Plates were decorated, greens standing like a palm tree amid the center of the plate, the starches scattered, like various stones of different size and shape, rice the sand they rested on, and the thick strip of meat was a log, lying out, yet

Arrival of the Assassin
She stood there, gazing out into the distance.
Moments before dawn, she walks up to the large window in the main entrance; face almost pressed against the glass. This assignment is almost too easy.
I had spent morning after morning, searching for the right place to approach from, somewhere concealed even if she decides to ponder her surroundings. I almost decided on a distance attack from the second floor, I would have a clear line of sight as she came in from the south hall and hitting her with a mild paralytic from there would allow me to finish her quietly afterwards. It sounded perfect, out of sight and completely masked by the looming shadows and lack of windows on the second floor. Something didn't seem right though, and when I parked myself down to ponder a better spot it hit me like a brick wall. I tested it in different phases of the sun and how the angles of the sun came into the room altered the shade and found my new place satisfying.
From my place, sitting on the floor nea

Goshujinsama's morning
KChan would kill me if she ever were to know how early I would wake in order to watch my home rise to greet the new day. Some days I laugh thinking I was never head of this household, she only lets me believe I am, and she could take it away at any moment.
I keep my sleeping clothes on, as an excuse in case I'm caught.
I needed water, I was hungry, oh, where am I?
And socks, I always forget my socks, and then half way down the main hallway I can hear my own footsteps echoing and I want to slap myself in the forehead. I walked toward my chest of clothing and stopped. There, by my door was the pair of fuzzy slippers I had bought on my last trip. I gave myself a silent laugh and slipped them on. Fists on hips, I felt a little too much glee as I stood in front of the mirror admiring them on my feet.
I was ready, heart just a little excited; it had been a while since I had this little adventure of mine. Work had me here and there, sometimes, like this last instance, it kept me away f

Fading Memory Pt. 4
The sun slowly faded away, and the night soon fell upon us.
She caught me smiling while I still had her in a soft embrace. Our eyes met, and my smile grew wider. Her only reaction was a cocked eyebrow, as if to ask why I was smiling.
I adoringly gazed into those eyes locked with mine for another moment before turning and walking back into the forest, back the way we came.
I know my lack of verbal response and sudden exit elicited nothing less than frustration from her, which caused her to run up behind me and jump onto my back. Hands around my neck, legs wrapped around my waist, she held tight, and rested her chin on my shoulder. I laughed out loud as she exhaled and her breath tickled my neck.
We trekked back to the warehouse, intent on gathering our things and returning to our cars, but that didn’t mean we couldn’t enjoy our walk back.
Horse whinnies and laughter rang out in the darkness as I galloped, pranced, trotted and cantered. My ears were suddenly the reigns and I wo

Fading Memory Pt. 3
With feet that seem to glide across the forest floor, we chased the remnants of a dying day. She led us, holding me tightly as we would dip and dodge between branches, leap over large roots, and slowly make our way to wherever. It didn’t matter where we ended up, I was with her, and that’s where I needed to be.
I was amazed at how she never skipped a beat, she knew exactly where to step, never faltering, always sure. It was hard enough for me to discern between root and shadow, yet she ran as if she had done this a thousand times before. The little light that filtered through the canopy of dense foliage above turned every bush into a deep chasm and constantly caused me to second guess my step.
My fears were always calmed whenever she would look back at me. Her constant reassurance that everything would be alright was more than enough to calm any fear I had as we blazed a path into the sunset.
Even as the day cooled with the coming darkness of night, the air still smelled of s

Or maybe I just refuse to anymore.

It's been so long. I don't know what are the right things to say anymore.
Everything sounds wrong.

What if everything stays broken.
