A Tale of Waiting
A Tale of Waiting
by Jed R. Cruz
I'm meeting someone tonight.
She's waiting for me, just out of my reach. Somewhere out there, she's looking around, glancing at her watch and nervously wiping her eyeglasses clean. People walk past her and around her, too caught up in their own affairs to give her even a moment's notice. The lights of the city overwhelm the darkness that has descended.
It's a clear December night. The streets and sidewalks are moist from the frequent showers, and rainbows of gas are forming in small puddles. Every few feet or so, a gum wrapper or a flattened soda can lies silently, adding color to the bland gray of the pavement.
She doesn't notice any of this, though. I don't have to take her face in my hands and gaze into her eyes to know what's on her mind. I don't have to put a finger to her lips to feel her shivering, either. She's anxious, and she knows I'm late. I know I'm late.
More minutes pass, and she starts to feel conscious. Although surely no eyes have focu

Dreams of Hide-and-Seek
Come in! Open 24 hours!
The bell jingled cheerfully. Edana, dinner in hand, made her way out of the convenience store and past the empty parking lot. The pavement was slick from the rain that had been going on until just about half an hour earlier. It was dark, shiny and cool. Edana dipped into her grocery bag for one of the hotdogs she bought.
When she was young, she recalled playing in the streets at a time like this. She'd drag her brother Adrian out with her ("What about the card game?" he'd ask) and play hide-and-seek.
Edana always hid first. Adrian would face the door and count to 10 while Edana found the darkest, scariest spot she could and crouch behind something. She'd hear Adrian call out, "Ready or not, here I come!" Edana would sit in her corner, stare at something nearby and wait. Eventually, she'd hear Adrian coming and she would crouch even lower, her knees and hair covering a sly smile that spread on her lips.
She'd hear Adrian's breathing coming closer. Her

Have you ever had a dream, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire deviant life, that there's something wrong with the story. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

You take the blue pill, the story ends. Your browser closes and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland. And, I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

I offer only the truth, nothing more.

Take: The Red Pill
Take: The Blue Pill

Fella Point Right spyed, nobody has ever done this before.
Ninja Point Right I know. That's why it's going to work.

Do not try and bend the spoon ...
