Update... So soon to start yet another chapter in my novel: Defted It's coming along nicely meh heh heh... I cleaned up the rough ramble out seen
above... in what normall would come out paying attention instead of brainstorming things out in that first purge like vomiting it forth from one's
fingertips... as all good poison should pass unless milking it out. Here's the first pass from the above a bit cleaner but no where near 2nd or final
just clarifying still needs punctuation etc... yes polishing this turd slowly to mirror the horror I want it to resemble.
The cool breeze drifted off the September morning like a fog growing off of a disparate lake, as the early morning sun still ditched itself behind
bushes of clouds barely edging out to dance spectre brief dances on the end of a long walk and this is where our story begins.
Nicolas sat plumply, his little legs dangled in his reflection... flipping, rippling and shining. His Keds bobbing across the surface along with his
Fisher Price plastic rod... skimming the murky surface as the depths sank deep within... dark... brooding... looming ominous... patiently, heavily
weighted for the second chance at the bright heart to hook the end of it’s line.
Nick’s mother Karen sleep and dreaming plush pillows and chiffon... Nick unbirthed in bubbles of conscious dream as Karen swimmingly floated a
menagre of color and shapes of lands afar. Nick was awake with the chickens at dawn as Karen nested deep in her feather mattress four pillows penned
back and over stuffed. Karen often sitting up clucking away at her laptop with a nice cup of coffee on her mohogany stained laptop stand that often
tripled as desktop and breakfast table it’s rounded corners and broad sturdy feet gave it the solidity to chop vegitables although unlikely the need
would never be filled.
Frank was away.
Karen was used to fresh fish for breakfast from the dock to their quaint little pond that over looked a sea of trees from an under ground spring.
Karen maternal alarm clock did not register from the circadian buzz of partnership frank had instilled Karen lovingly with... as he and Nick would
often go down on Sunday mornings for the fresh catch of Bass and Brim the coffee usually did the job as the wall grinder swung into action and a kiss
was what would wake Karen after Karen nose hit the snooze button pretending to be asleep to smile the brightest rays of sun Karen eyes squinted
Nick sat glaring at the end of the weathered dock that they had installed years previously as the mechanization of building a house into a home. They
were a loving couple for many years before Nick came along. Nick always wanted to be like Frank admiring the acceptance he showered on Karen and
himself. Walking in franks foot steps he had made his way down the little path to the graying dock of smooth splinters and oxidizing nails The posts
cracked and smooth as the knots wept sticky tears during the summer heat.
The vision of his line being too short never bothered Nick before... deep set eyes wavered not a sideways glance but fixated hard and cold as if it
was stone for many ages waiting for this exact moment as it slowly crept to the surface barely perceivable to any eye save it’s own. It’s hunger
had grown ravenous over these many years seemingly as eons in the depths even before the spring had been tapped for the pond... seeping slowly as the
ground was first cleared in the 1800’s for colonist expansion South. It had been many things before then, a saloon, a hotel after the whores and
prohibition were axed to death chasing the lecher deeper to the South a plantation was not that far away in those days and some legends say thats were
such things lay in wait for those without pure hearts to grow power and strength from them as they sleep deeply nestled delusional from drink and
pussy. The blood often flowed out back from the fights spilling over into the night and the wire birthed babies for the opossums that crept as the
player piano spooled it’s calliope in the newest tunes yet to make it Westward.
One shoestring undone dangling the other double tied in a fit that could barely get them on worried Karen would wake up before Karen could land
breakfast... Nick decided to stand up and try laying down to be able to get closer remembering he nearly drowned in July and was told to not lean
forward... he thought he saw something shiny and yelled treasure! and that’s the last thing he remembered before drinking what seemed to be the
entire pond having fell mouth first and nearly out of breath.
The occasional late season dragonfly drifted past skimming the surface breaking through the fog as miniature Huey’s through fog over the Vietcong
delta, as the fish flipped for a delicacy to remember all winter long preening for anything similar. The fish were often left on the slightly hungry
side since being stocked devouring competitions eggs and fighting with flashes of fury sparking those fireworks into a pop of roe releasing their own
future into dragons themselves.
As Nick stood up his little hand still trying to fight from baby to boy still clinging waiting from a growth spurt he had a slight stunt from a
sickness that left him inactive most of the summer as he placed his hand down and bore weight the eyes took pause and grew wide fearing it’s moment
would come undone it’s hatred boiling up as the kettle howled Karen smiled deep and got Karen stretch in order to give a limber relaxed embrace that
reminder Karen the first dance she and Frank shared in their socks as “What dreams may come...” echoed out of the copper horn record player, she
thought was a little bit frivolous, but she came to appreciate Franks insistence as when the power went out from a summer storm it provided a nice
romantic holiday from the electrical buzz of modern living...
where fear normally ruled in such occasions the love kept all at bay in a dream of utter satisfaction with wanting to cuddle in such storms and not in
fear as she did when voices drowned out all existence and she drifted cloudless staring blankly as the heat between Karen parents were not one of
passion but friction building into a deep seated hidden despair not yet to be seen until Karen teens she bottled up so much idealism in such dreams of
fancy sleeping beauty would awake in the hell of reality at first kiss.
A splinter slid at the same time Nicks hand and they ended up together in an instant he wailed and an Karen sat up in extreme fear Frank was away!
Kettle! Nick screaming... Karen fear was moving faster than Karen body could bladder full as that pond that became the worst idea since July in that
very moment Nick had fallen in.
Nick squealed and splashed, Karen was at the bottom of the steps gliding as if on a gliding on their freshly waxed hardwood as they often did in games
of indoor ice skating in woolen socks but this was no fun it was terror... as she dashed the pond shook as Karen’s eyes were steady and the world
shook under Karen intent as Karen last breath lay still at Karen silent scream was busy cracking wine glasses in Vienna.
Nick yet was sinking again in Karen heart as a bulldozer contract was being phoned to fill the damned thing in with he minds eye she leaped as if she
had jumped from the top of the steps heart out racing far ahead at the phone call to Frank. Frank had received a call that one of his childhood
friends parents had passed away and was out of town.
