Missed by Leslie Moon #atozchallenge

It’s a messed up place.  “NewCago – the metropolis of the golden age.” Ha – It was a great city ’til something went wrong.  What were they were thinking when they reconstituted  Julius Caesar’s DNA. Wouldnt you expect –  senseless killings, women enslaved , children given as offerings?  I can still see it – blood on the streets. OneContinue reading “Missed by Leslie Moon #atozchallenge”

Here we go with A to Z

Today begins a month long dance with the letters A to Z and the A to Z challenge. This is the fourth year I have done this challenge and each year has been a different rollercoaster ride. Last year, I did the challenge (weakly) after sustaining a fractured wrist that required surgery. Just before theContinue reading “Here we go with A to Z”

Blood in its wake #flashfiction #newcago #noir

I stood in a daze my mouth agape out of nowhere came a colorful bus travelling much too fast Its wheels barely touching the pavement. I heard a woman scream and then saw her emerge from the bus’ bloody wake Staggering, she strained toward the guarded doorway Never acknowledging my presence, she pled with the stoic, holographicContinue reading “Blood in its wake #flashfiction #newcago #noir”

No Place For Clowns #flashfiction #Newcago #clowns

“You need to get out-of-town, Jelly. This latest turn is going to make NewCago unsafe for even clowns.” Jelly Bean and I had grown up together. He followed me into the dark corners of the city. He did most of my night-time surveillance. “But what about you, Sam?” “Lily is keeping me safe for now.Continue reading “No Place For Clowns #flashfiction #Newcago #clowns”

The Message Behind the Dress #flashfiction #newcago

It had been a glorious, humm dinger  of a  day in NewCago. We celebrated  a holiday (the key players long forgotten) of a well-known street battle that had raged years ago. The gangs remembered  and agreed to keep the streets safe for one day. The parade-route litter of popcorn bags and soda cups was aContinue reading “The Message Behind the Dress #flashfiction #newcago”

They were Pink #flashfiction #newcago #noir

They were pink,  moist and plump. Her eyes were violet and they sparked like firecrackers. ‘Oh Lily Baby…” “Stop you fool!” You can’t think about her; it will be your ruin and the city’s. *** It had to be here in her library. Lily had been the source keeper for OldCago. She had tried toContinue reading “They were Pink #flashfiction #newcago #noir”

DoomCycle #fridayfictioneers #flashfiction #newcago

***** An unmanned vehicle being controlled by ??? “What the devil?” In one moonless night: The Sheriff had been pushed into CagoBend River on his evening constitutional. An unnamed legislator left a permanent bloody imprint (his only remains) in the Last Street Tunnel. It knows I have no power against it. “The stakes have beenContinue reading “DoomCycle #fridayfictioneers #flashfiction #newcago”

Can’t Kill the Thirst #flash fiction #retro #fridayfictioneers

Another night banging around in the trashcans of Newcago,  I needed a drink.  A tall one and a Cheesesteak at Tony’s would do nicely. I noticed the dame – she was a looker. I couldn’t get a read on the guy beneath the brim. “Yeah, the regular,” I nodded. Sally and I go back toContinue reading “Can’t Kill the Thirst #flash fiction #retro #fridayfictioneers”
