note to self - write about moving out over thanksgiving, reasons, situation. living with Laura & the twins.

I feel slightly nauseated. mental tracks for a story got too cruel, too mean sprited for me. It needs major reworking, and some poetic justice.

revision - 3:10pm. No, let's not. focus on cool stuff. :)

My first night (in progress.)

scotto as a baby pod


The night wasn't unseasonably warm or cold... it was like any other of the last dozen evenings lately. It was clear outside, with a soft spread of cloud cover high in the sky. The observant might note the lack of insect noises against a backdrop of a suburban skyline. A distant thunder and flicker of light in the clouds seemed to hint at a coming rain, but the scent of ozone was lacking... making the coming damp off in a further future. Out of nowhere, a cracking report like a gunshot, or a car backfiring rang out, so loud that the windows rattled... All the neighborhood dogs began barking, and with a sizzling hiss a bright organic oval, glowing cherry red fell to earth, streaking trail of light and smoke behind it before it landed in a field of tall, wet grass. There it sat, slowly cooling, steaming the surrounding ground and plants... the pod's coloring fading to an orange, then yellow, and slowly stopping at a deep forest green, to blend with the surrounding flora. All was quiet as the night drew on... a soft rain fell, bringing with it a peace and comfort, allowing things to return to a semblance of normalcy.

"Tomorrow's friday" she said slowly and softly, letting the words dangle from her lips like a drop of chocolate escaping from an ice cream cone.

I long to taste both... her words fill my ears with a delight, care and warmth that spreads rapidly to my mind and heart...and her lips... her lips. *enthralled sigh*
