The Hybrid Hive (Full Story)

Around me, the fire is raging. Around me the house is crumbling to ash as flames lick the peeling wrappers of broken walls and lungs begin to ache. Around me the room is filling with smoke and I’m not panicking. I’m not bothered. I’m calm. In a way, this fire began years ago when I was just a kid. It’s only fitting that this is how it ends. I know now that everything lead to this, I did this. I let her make me this. It’s my fault. Please don’t send help.

It must end here.

Touch Yourself Again And I’ll Kill Ya

Have you guys ever heard of The Onan?

My husband has never heard of it. He says it’s not a real thing…but it has to be, because I’ve seen it. He masturbates all the time…so for sure, it’s seen him.

The Hybrid Hive (Part 3–Final)

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

——

After the crates had been loaded into the plain windowless company van, draped heavily in several layers of breathable linen fabric, I left for the day.

I knew the perfect place to relocate this hive and it was just a few hours south.

The Hybrid Hive (Part 2)

Part 1 | Part 2

——

Of the bullshit webs she’d weaved about her phobias and allergies, I knew only these to be true: Alice was trypophobic. This fear refers specifically to small, symmetrical holes. It can be triggered by innocuous, mundane things; patterns in wire fencing, coral, once she even had a breakdown while passing a set of rattan patio furniture in the hardware store; the rich brown backing of tightly woven hexagons sent her into a quiet shock. She was unable to move until a man came up to us.

“Ma’am are you alright?”

I’m on the NoSleep Podcast this week!

…Well my story is!

Woooo!

Exciting Developments

I received two pieces of very exciting news today. Both tidbits were big deals to me and exciting to me. That’s all that matters, really. I know not many people follow this blog but I’m looking to work on that.

My partner Daniel Clark and I begin an outline for a new story today. I normally don’t write them this long because I lose interest easily, but we are excited about the progression. It will be in four parts, the first drop of the first part is only half written and I already have 1500 words…. So if they all wind up being this involved, we are looking at over 12,000… Basically about 10 times longer than any story I usually sit down to try to write.

After we have edited the first draft I should be able to post the first part of the story this week.

Typically this is not how I write anything. Most of my short stories or flash fiction have been based on one sentence that I thought and then I just started typing. Usually I go back and refine the idea but I typically only spend a couple hours on each story so I’m kind of excited to build some really solid characterizations and explain to you all this idea that it’s in my head.

Some Secrets Refuse To Stay Sunk

I skipped a stone over the lake and froze with fear. A bloated, rotted hand had reached out of the water and caught it. Some secrets refuse to stay sunk.
