Four's CompanyTurning around once again to look at himself in the mirror, Brett squinted to make sure he was really seeing it. Yep: his bald spot was completely gone. It had apparently vanished within the last hour.Four's Company by Verandert
Of course, most men Brett’s age (thirty by the end of the month) would have been happy to see a thicker pelt on their heads, but for Brett it was just one more in a series of odd things that had been happening that morning. The alarm clock on his phone had woken him up with a Taylor Swift song instead of the Foo Fighters he’d programmed it for. When he left for work, he’d tried put his arm through the handle of his suitcase, then spent a few seconds looking for the purse straps that didn’t exist before he realized what he was doing. And when he got to work, he’d had to stand on his tiptoes to retrieve a stapler from a top shelf, which he’d never had to do before.
And now there was this. But beyond all the subtle-yet-disturbing changes going on, the mos
Cheer Up Again!OK, the first thing you’ve got to understand is that neither of us knew what we were doing. I mean, people joke about this stuff, but who would have thought it could actually happen? I mean, when I think about what happened to Brandon, I just…Cheer Up Again! by Verandert
Alright, first things first, Brandon was my younger brother. We were visiting our aunt and uncle in Florida and decided to buy some tickets for the Dolphins game. We were waiting out front, we were going to buy our tickets at the box office, and while we were there we noticed these two cheerleaders heading into a door on the side of the stadium. Sexy as hell, although it’s hard to think about them that way now.
Anyway, Brandon and I are joking and he says he wishes he could get into that locker room. I see this penny on the ground and I say maybe he should wish on it, you know, make it official. So he does. And all of a sudden we get this feeling, like…you go into a room and you can tell something’s different, but yo

It had been three weeks since my mother died and one week since my dad moved into an assisted living manor due to advancing dementia. The family home was my responsibility now. I had good, older memories there.
When I was a little boy, I could remember riding atop my medium-sized, battery-powered toy train. I laid the tracks in the den and up the steps and around into the hallway. The darkness of the hall with the lights off made it like a tunnel. Then the train moved down to the living room and off to my bedroom. After a certain age, I was too big to ride, so I would put my toys and stuffed animals atop it and play conductor.
It was a beautiful time. My mother was a life-long head librarian for the county library and my father edited reference texts, so there was no shortage of books about the house. Sadly, neither had the mind or eyes to read for years.
I was a happy child but routinely sickly. No matter though. A day home from school meant another day on the railroa

A metal support beam fell on Dr. Fujiwara. It caught me in the shoulder but I deflected it with the hard part of my bodysuit.
Pain shot through me. I crawled over to check on Dr. Fujiwara. He was unconscious but alive. I cursed under my breath. He muttered something but I didnt listen. I had to get him out of here before the whole area collapsed.
I activated the adrenaline pads on the side. My heart raced. I lifted the doctor up on my good shoulder. The ground quaked all around. I knew that tons of earth would soon fill the room with those monsters to follow.
I looked down. On the ground I saw those four, black-sleeved papers that the doctor always carried around. They were from Colonel A.L. The doctor always said they were important. I grunted and slipped them into the satchel wrapped around the doctor.
Id have to ask for an explanation some day. For now, I had to save the doctors ass.
The domed lockdown doors were shutting. I ran w

Dark sounds surrounded me in the blackness. Gnashing and beating. Wet and thick. My imagination shuddered. There was roughness all around.
Finally, I was thrown into a wall and something shut behind me. My teeth vibrated a bit and my nose felt crushed. I coughed in the bag and fumbled for it.
My hands hadnt been tied. I had to figure that was next. But the soldiers or whatever they were roared amongst themselves and thundered away.
When a moist, dripping silence returned I fumbled for the bag around my head. After a good bit of tugging, I was able to split the seam. That only got me so far before I worked at the knot. It was complex but I didnt really have anything else to do.
Even with the split seam, there was only enough light to know there were stone walls all around with only the dimmest of torch-light filtering in from somewhere far away. A rancid smell filtered through the torn seam.
My Yuji side was plotting my escape. My
