Safe Haven

The box was the size of a footlocker, indeed it was a foot locker, the name on the side said Tech Sergeant Emanuel Perez. An envelope was caught in the seam, I pulled it out and read.

I'm sorry, I did not know where to go, but the safe haven law said that I
could drop her off at a hospital, police station or fire house. Nothing
was said about animal shelters.

"I grant a second unsolicited wish that another makes for you."

Silver Blood-Epilogue

As we lifted away from the now burning city, I heard a voice emit from a solitary figure in the back, "Well done, but there are questions to be answered."

We looked at Mister Mysterious and knew that things were not yet under control. He always wore a black suit with a black shirt, tie socks, shoes and belt. His dark skin bespoke of his African heritage, he only thing of any color was his teeth and eyes.

"And who wants to ask the questions? You?" He knew that we were conditioned to never reveal our secrets, so even if he tortured us, he would get nothing for his efforts.

The Heart Of The Tree

The Heart Of The Tree

By Stanman63

Synopsis:When a woodsman accidentally harms a Wood Nymph's tree, he helps both the tree and Wood Nymph and in so doing, heals the tree.




Once upon a time, a Grandfather led his grandchild up to an old tree. This tree had no leaves and was gnarled with many a broken limb, but the Grandfather went up and lovingly tended to the tree.



"Why are you doing what you are doing?"

"I am tending to the tree."

What’s that Joe?

I said I hate this city.

San Fran’s not that bad. By the way, why are we up here?

Some of the victims identified the plastic surgeon.

Here’s Dr. Piper’s clinic.
Looks abandoned. We best look around.

This is the place. See the two one gallon bell jars Bill?
What’s in them Joe?

Souvenirs I guess, She would pick up drunks and give them vaginoplasties, then dump the victims down in L A.

his dressing room.
