Words Have Power, They Are Magic Pt 13

  The sound of shifting gears woke me up. I sat up on and watched as an ancient truck loaded with hay went pass. I rubbed my eyes and grabbed for my bottle.  It was empty. I took another bottle from the backpack; unscrewed the top and took a drink.  A big drink.  Then another before recapping it.  Soon my hands stopped shaking and my head started to clear. I...

Words Have Power, They Are Magic Pt 12

I walked. I really had no place in mind but I walked.

Mr. Bittner? Mr. Bittner? Richard?” An angel was calling me. She was just past the fog. I had an irresistible urge to go find the angel. It sounded like my Renee.

Words Are Magic, They Have Power Pt 9

The bus pushed into the night. I was tired but I did not dare go to sleep. I did not have enough whiskey to ensure I passed out. I just had enough to keep my hands from shaking.
