Tradewinds 13 CH 01“DERELICT”
It took an effort not to stare out at the impenetrable mist drifting around the ship. Sometimes it seemed as if the Maximum was dead in the water, still as if anchored, and that fog was passing them by. Wherever it came from to wherever it was going.
Such thoughts Shades kept losing his himself in as he tried hard to focus on the monotonous swirl of grey that only slightly parted before them as he manned the helm. In spite of the fact that they had encountered nothing thus far, the three of them unanimously decided to have someone at the wheel at all times, just in case. Even though there was only a hint of a breeze, so it was slow going anyway, visibility was nearly nonexistent.
As if anything could appear out of the murk.
Anything, even the ancient sailors’ fabled Edge of the World. Here There Be Dragons… Those words seemed to sum up these dreary doldrums, a little too aptly for his taste.
In spite of th
Tradewinds 12 CH 29“So, do you think Erix survived?” asked Corrick as they walked among the booths of the Island Festival. Given both his new friends’ ‘hero’ status around these parts, as well as how well-liked the big cat had become during his short time here, even Bandit was allowed to attend with them.
Among those who were in the know, it was the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue in the week since the battle, and the jury was still out.
“I don’t know,” Shades replied, though he quietly hoped he hadn’t in spite of his doubts. Still limping slightly, but his ankle was doing much better, markedly on the mend. “Most of the Island Patrol guys think he’s dead, but I’m with Toma. They never found his ship, and Max and I survived, so I think it’s safer to assume he still alive.”
The Festival itself was the Island Paradise version of the traditional block party. Food, music, dance, games, with a blend of local cust
With a Closet Full of Froot Loops(Just for starters, I’d like to mention that I’ve never gotten around to reading Stephen King’s "The Stand" and have only seen portions of the miniseries, just for the record.)
When I first watched Part One (the part about the plague), I was working on my Biology homework one evening. I had had a fairly sheltered childhood up to about my last year-and-a-half of high school, and that was one of the most gruesome things I had ever seen in my life. The images lingered and haunted me in my sleep…
…I stand on a street in my childhood home of Lakeside. MT, with a bunch of zombie people shuffling around. After days of rioting and looting, the streets are a shambles, and the sick, dying people no longer have the energy to riot any longer. As if most of the cops are even alive to fight them anymore. What few are still alive, realizing that they’re screwed anyway, shuffle around with the rest of the dying.
I, however, am perfectly healthy, and
Tradewinds 12 CH 28Justin walked into the small infirmary room on Kon Kalona, now that he was allowed in. After waiting what felt like forever outside while they treated Max.
Though Shades sat next to his friend, with only a few bandages and his ankle wrapped, Max reclined in a cot in the corner. Wearing even more wrappings, with his arm in a sling. Bandit, whom the medical staff had tried to eject before Shades set them straight, lying on the floor next to him. Max was finally awake, and he and Shades were talking when he walked in.
For having endured three brutal battles in little more than a day, Justin figured, he could have looked worse.
“Hey Justin,” Max smiled weakly, “how’s it goin’?”
“Okay, now that you are.”
“Compared to you, Max, this is nothing!” Shades laughed. Considered it a good sign to see Justin making more jokes. Especially less cynical ones.
“It wasn’t a clean break,” the doctor informed them as he came in f
