Everyday Superheroes

When the Void screams back.

Nothing. Then, existence. I hated it. I felt the concept sink into my perfect void trying to fill me. It felt wrong as if I was being altered in some grotesque way, polluted by this reality. Then I began to understand a new concept, something so ingrained into this reality that it was the first…

Red Alert

The girl would not meet my eyes. “That’s an ugly bruise on your wrist?” I prompted her again.  “I fell and hit it on a railing,” Jamie lied to me. She was so young, it was hard to tell with the makeup and the heels but I had seen many before just like her. The…

Ricko took a moment to enjoy the feel of their small shop as the afternoon sunlight fell across the man seated in the vintage barber chair. The chair dated back to the 1930s and was lovingly adorned with a cast iron scrollwork footrest, arm supports, and headrest. The hard surfaces were each padded with blood-red…
