EXCERPT


“This has got to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever done” said Maricus. “Isn’t there another way to figure this out?”


                “Well, this is the most accurate way we have,” said Dr. Langdon. “If you have a better way of figuring this out, I’d be glad to hear it.” Maricus sat quietly for a
moment.


                “No, I don’t have a better way, but I was just wondering, do we really need to know?” asked Maricus after a moment. Dr. Langdon pondered.


                “Yes,” he replied after a while. “It’s not like you’re really dying. You get to come back after a few minutes.” Maricus thought about it and said nothing else.


                They resumed changing their clothes in the dressing room. They removed their casual attire and replaced them with plain white hospital scrubs. They put their
belongings into their respective lockers and exited the dressing rooms, then
walked into the hallway and met two more men in identical attire.


                “Are you gentlemen ready?” Langdon asked.


                “Ready as we’ll ever be,” Rashik said.


                 “Not sure if I still want to go through with this,” Fawkes said.


                “Good lord, am I the only one with any balls around here?” Dr. Langdon said, jokingly. “Fawkes, I’m surprised at you. You’re usually the brave one. We’ve already got
enough adversity coming from outside sources, the last thing we need is someone
getting cold feet at the last second. So if anyone wants out, they should say
so now.” The hallway was silent. “Very well, let’s do this,” Dr. Langdon said,
beginning to walk. The other men followed behind him.

OTHER SIDE OF THE TUNNEL - FLASH FICTION BY GERRENCE GEORGE

Posted by Gerrence George on April 21, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

She hated this part of the time travel process, but it was necessary. The G’s pressed against her coal colored skin and stretched her cheeks back past the point of pain. It hurt. Bad. But it was worth it. She pictured his face to help block the pain of traveling through the quantum tunnel. He was on the other side. The man who loved her, then tried to have her killed. He tried to hide in the past. That’s what he does, but it didn’t matter. “I’ll find you.” She thought, as she pressed the accelerator on her personal transport cycle, gritting her teeth in agony. “No matter what era, galaxy, or existence known to man you try to go to, I’ll find you. You can’t hide from me.”



She’s able to stand the pain because she knows a deeper pain awaits her in the other side of the tunnel. Her man.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
