Were it not for the silent heat-lightning flitting across the night sky like sup-hose spider veins briefly exposed by a wind gusted hemline, I never would have seen my cold cat Buddy sprawled out stiff-legged on the porch with one slightly red feather dangling from his rigid, lifeless mouth. Nor would I have seen the prize he had deposited on the welcome mat by the front door - a still twitching bird, possibly a robin (it was hard to tell in the darkness) with a purple chained rabbits foot strung about its neck and and carrier pigeon message tube clutched in its beak.

That's all I got, poor spelling and all...

When are you going to add an edit feature in the comments, Gail? I accidentally switched tenses and it's killing me surer than the Vampyre Robin..

Hop.

Sing.

Hop.

Sing.

She held the blade deftly in her left hand...squinted at the interstice of thumb and index on her right - pacing the dim light ahead.

Hop.

Sing.

Hop.

Sing.

Her breath, ragged like a band of tired ghosts, puncuated her grunted utterance.

"Look at me. Look at me!" she hissed through clenched teeth. "I have grown, oh I have grown and tonight you will see what I have become."

As she spoke, she caressed the knife to her chest as if to hone its edge. A scale or two sloughed off.

Hop.

Sing.

Hop.

Sing.

Arms akimbo, knife hand and spy-grip, she golumed towards the dim-lit trailer.

Those are all pretty damn good.

Yeah, but I worry that Hop-Sing may be too closely tied to Bonanza.. It was a 14 year run.. Unless we're going to butcher the Cartwrights (especially that annoying Little Joe) then I think it's too much of a stretch..

Jake

..and that freakin Amway stuff is too intense for general audiences .. I'm getting an anxiety flashback just thinking about it... De Voss. Van Andel.. LOC!! SA8!! Arrrghhh!!

I was going to go with Tupperware but I wanted to avoid a NC-17 rating

Jake - I actually thought about Bonanza when I wrote that - then I thought - well, Jake is probably the only one that will point it out - could be fun...
