Demands

I was bound on the floor just like the rest of them. My hands were behind my back, tied up with the same sort of plastic things they use for handcuffs these days. I knew they couldn’t hold me if I didn’t want them to. But here I was, sitting uncomfortably, a hostage along with … Continue reading Demands

The Book That Changed Everything

Stanley rushed down the stairs, hoping to catch his wife before she left for work. When he got to the kitchen he realized he was too late.

The Old Book

It was Alex’s day off and he had time to kill. On his days off, that was really the only kind of time he had.
