The Curious Case of Rebecca Murdoch: Part 5, The Road to Nowhere

          Getting this story down on paper isn’t exactly a pleasant experience, but I at least thought that I remembered all of the details. I thought that I remembered everything there was to know. I guess, in a sense, I was right. However, as I started to write this down, going back over some of these … Continue reading The Curious Case of Rebecca Murdoch: Part 5, The Road to Nowhere

The Curious Case of Rebecca Murdoch: Part 4, Down the Rabbit Hole

           My phone trembled, drenched in sweat from my palms and my cheek. My body felt hot and cold all at the same time, and it took me all of the will I could muster to say,      “Oh.

The Curious Case of Rebecca Murdoch: Part 3, A Friendly Chat

            I don't remember much of the journey that followed, mostly because there was nothing to remember.

The Curious Case of Rebecca Murdoch: Pt 1, First Impressions

The Discoveries of Peter Bloom: Raspberry Pi, Twin Siblings, and Nasal Trauma

I'm bad at giving gifts. I'm supposed to know what people want, but if they want it so badly, why don't they buy it? Of course, you don't pay for a gift, unless your child gives it to you. Anyways, if someone's well-off, you have to give them something that you think they'd want, but … Continue reading The Discoveries of Peter Bloom: Raspberry Pi, Twin Siblings, and Nasal Trauma

The Tomb of the Tyrant: Part 2

           He found a cliff and leapt off, grabbing an updraft and curving it towards the Tomb. He didn’t know exactly what he was going to see there, but he knew that it he’d probably not encounter anything good.
