Mind Over Matter: Not Alone"It means 'Go walk the Dog'.""That's correct. Thank you Miss Seward." I was so happy when Fern got this question right. All those late night study sessions had payed off."Hey Soph, why didn't you answer? Finally run out of brains?" The oh-so-annoying Greg whispered in my ear. He and his brother really got on my nerves."No Powers, only you and your twin run out of brains on a regular basis. Now shut up!" I said hoping that they would both leave me alone so that I could listen to the teacher."Like saying that ever works," Greg's brother Calvin said."Just be quiet both of you. You're going to get me in trouble.""Not gonna happen Sweetheart," they said at the same time. They really creep me out when they do that."I swear sometimes it's like you guys read each other's minds or something.""You have no idea," they said at the same time again. I decided it would be better to ignore them, so I put both of my hands on the desk to collect myself. Then my vision became clouded. I couldn't
Living Shadows part 28"Darius, when are we going to stop?" Miriam asked Darius obviously cranky."We'll stop when we get where we're going.""Then can you at least tell us where we're going?" Darius looked back at Miriam and gave her one of his winning smiles."I don't want to ruin the surprise." This made Miriam really agitated."Darius, we've been walking for seven days straight. I'm tired, I'm hungry, and I want to sleep on an actual bed tonight. Now where are we going?" Miriam looked like she could rip someone's head off. Sam was sure that she probably would under the right conditions."We'll be there soon. Don't worry.""Well how soon is soon?""What do you mean? Soon is soon.""But how much time is soon?""It's however long it takes." This wasn't helping Miriam's agitation."Sam, can you explain to him that he is being no help at all?""Are you kidding? I'm not giving Darius any reason to take us on another 'short cut.' The last one we took extended our trip by two whole days." The arguing continued f
The Curse of the Cottage on a CliffOnce there was a man. He was an ordinary man, but he had a big heart. He went to college to become a doctor and fell deeply in love with a young woman that was training to be a nurse. She was kind and loving with everyone, and everyone that she met loved her. She was passionate about her work which made the man fall for her even harder. The man fought long and hard for her affections. The woman watched the young doctor every day. She watched as he cared for each and every patient. He never tuned anyone away and he was good at what he did. She aided him in the saving of countless lives. Eventually, she fell for him just as hard as he had fallen for her. They were married rather quickly after that and began to look for a house. They looked and they looked at house after house, but nothing seemed to fit them just right. Everything was either too small or out of their budget. They began to grow weary in their search when a house came up for sale out of nowhere. It was a perfect little cott
Mind Over Matter: Doppelgangers"Alright class can anyone translate this phrase into English?" The stupid and boring teacher asked the class. Little miss kiss-up Rachel had her hand up in the air as always. Man she gets on my nerves. "Any one besides Miss Daniels?" Then a surprising thing happened, Fern Seward raised her hand. "Yes Miss Seward?""It means 'Go walk the Dog'.""That's correct. Thank you Miss Seward." I was really surprised that she got it right. Fern wasn't exactly the scholastic type. Her best friend Sophia on the other hand was practically a genius. She always gets straight A's. It was people like her that made the rest of us look bad."Hey Soph, why didn't you answer? Finally run out of brains?" My brother Greg whispered to Sophia who was sitting in front of him."No Powers, only you and your twin run out of brains on a regular basis. Now shut up!""Like saying that ever works," I whispered diagonally across the aisle."Just be quiet both of you. You're going to get me in trouble.""Not gonna happen
Mind Over Matter: Typical DayMist swirls with grey behind it. All my dreams start out like this. Nothing but grey. It's not even white or black. It's just dull and pointless grey. Then the mist subsides and my vision is clear. I'm in a field; Tall grass, horses, and a girl. I've seen this girl before. She's appeared in other dreams of mine. She's grooming one of the horses. Then she notices me."Come find me David. Come find me," she calls to me. Then she steps behind the horse out of site. I feel compelled to follow her. I run to the horse, but she's not there. She's never there."Come find me David. Come find me."*Bang*"David Johnson! I swear if you fall asleep in my class again I will give you detention.""Sorry, won't happen again.""Be sure that it doesn't." Yup, just another typical day in my life. I always seem to fall asleep during history. I'm not sure why, but the past has always bored me. I'm more of a man concerned with the future. *Ring*"Finally, I didn't think that it would ever end."
Living Shadows part 27"How long are we going to be here?" Sam groaned while sprawled out on three chairs."If you didn't want to come then you should have stayed back at the hotel," Darius replied."Are you kidding? Miriam with a hangover was scary. She looked like she would have ripped my head off if my boot so much as squeaked.""That's true. She can be a bit frightening when she's in a bad mood." Darius was pouring over books at the public records office. Sam had come along."Are you almost done?" Sam whined again."If all you're going to do is whine then why don't you leave?""Can't, don't know my way around.""Fine, how about we go to the library then. I was hoping to check out their collection of history books. You can manage to entertain yourself there can't you?""Hey, I might not look it, but I actually enjoy reading every once in awhile. Bet, that's something that you didn't know about me.""I didn't know that you could even read," Darius said obviously joking."Ha, ha. Very funny," Sam said sarca
