  2. NaNo - Blind (title TBD)

    Dear Graham,

    So I write those two words and realize I don't know your first name. Stupid, huh? I think I knew you for all of 30 minutes. Maybe not even that.

    I'm still recovering from that night. From Carlisle. The docs say the scars won't be that bad, but I needed to tell someone I’m fucked up. Something changed inside me and nothing's right now. I don't know who I can trust.

    Except you.

    I just wanted to tell you that I wish you were here. I wish I could know you better.

    I wish you were alive.


  3. Sorry, the first one had a misspelling. Grr.

    Title: His Beloved (Blind)

    Dearest Cynthia,

    I miss you so much, it feels like my heart has stopped beating in my chest. Each breath I take slides into my lungs with the sharpness of broken glass and my ribs hurt with the effort. When you left to go visit your folks in Saskatchewan, I thought it would only last a couple of weeks, but as it turned into months, the time has dragged me through my days like I’m trudging through sludge. My whole body aches with the effort to move. Waking up is almost as painful as dreaming of you with me.

  4. The Letter

    My Dearest Wife,

    I will be brief. If you are reading this then my life has ended under suspicious circumstances.

    I discovered the plot you and your lover had concocted. It was truly inspirational! I would not have lived much longer anyway, but I guess you couldn’t wait. Youth, always in such a rush.

    By now your fingers are surely burning as a result of the contact poison in which this paper was soaked. Fear not! The antidote is available to you.

    It is in the same location as the murder weapon you buried.

    My regards to Sheriff Wimbsley please.


  5. Title: Preparation for War (Nano Edition)

    Dear David,

    When I moved here a few months ago, I had no idea about who I really was or the truth behind my family. You have helped me discover so much. I will always be thankful for your presence in my life, even if is only for a short period of time.

    After we searched the archives yesterday, I finally realized what I need to do to defeat the destroyers … but I have to do it alone. I know you will probably think otherwise, but this fight is between them and my family. I have to do this.

  6. Gah - I had this posted earlier, but I forgot about the stupid captcha thing. Can I still play?
