I’m late, late, late this week… I’ve been in Denver for parent’s weekend at my son’s school. Such fun times together, but no time for anything else. Humble apologies for late submission and tardiness in reading all of your great stories!
A warning, this photo has a very disquieting quality to it, that pulled me in a dark direction. The focus on the closest cars, while the others are distorted and blurred, the rain. It give me the creeps. I apologize in advance for the language and unsettling topic. A writer’s gotta’ write what the muse inspires.

I Got You Babe
Stupid bitch. As if a little rain would stop me? Park under a light and wait it out? I’m far more patient than you know.
I’ll wait in the shadows, baby doll–– with those pretty eyes watching for a break in the rain. Nervous? Afraid you’ll get wet, but more afraid of the dark… You should be.
You don’t even notice me. You’re all the same.
I can smell your fear, taste it–– sweet and salty, like the last one’s… and the one before her.
Sit and wait. I’ve got time.
I love the rain; it washes away the evidence.
