•{ The DoDo King . . .

No one had believed her when she told them she had found the fabled DoDo King. Everyone said her head was too full of stories and nonsense. She knew she was right and this time she brought a camera to capture evidence on film.

Unfortunately for her, the DoDo King has never been seen by mortal eyes. Whenever someone is near they are overcome with the need to fall asleep . . .

•{ The Show Goes On . . .

Everything was going well before the phone call. It was the third night of her first tour and things could not have been better. The energy of the roaring fans invigorated her enough to where she could forget about all the things happening back at home. At least, for a little while.

Wanting to add a new song to her line-up, she was in the middle of a rehearsal. A member of her staff came to the stage and said she had a phone call. She had had a sinking feeling in her chest as she took the phone. The rest of the band went on a break and she had answered. “Hey, what’s up?…. Oh. Oh, I see. Y-yeah… Now she’s at peace. . . . Okay.” For the next few moments, the only thing she could do was look at the phone.

“I stood on this stage, night after night, reminding the broken it would be alright. But right now? Oh, right now I just can’t. . .“

A little while later the band came back and found her sitting on the stage with lyric sheets strewn about. When they asked if everything was okay she was snapped back to reality, for she had zoned out in the grief that had accompanied the phone call. What could she do? There was a performance that tonight and canceling was not an option. She was a performer. She would perform.

She forced out a laugh while quickly scrubbing her face with the palm of her hands. “It’s nothing,” she said. “I think I finally got the song for tonight though.”

They accepted her answer and paid attention as she picked up the sheets off the floor and began instructions for the song. Internally she was shaking and her head was dizzy with all the information she was trying to process, but this was something that would have to be dealt with later. For now, the only thing that mattered was getting through the night’s performance like everything was okay.

“It’s easy to sing when there’s nothing to bring me down. But what will I say when I’m held to the flames like I am right now?. . .”

•{ If Wishes Were Horses . . .

If wishes were horses then I’d ride away
Far from the worries that come with the day
Upon its back I would be free
None of the same life holding on to me

Can my wishes turn to horses
Even if just for a day
I need to borrow their strength so I can run away

•{ To the Window . . .

So bring me the night, send out the stars
‘Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night

Morning came and he was gone. Nothing new. He had told her when he came the night before, that it would be that way. Only. She had hoped to wake up before he had to leave. “That dummy,” she muttered to herself, “I told him to wake me if I was still sleeping.”

She stretched out on the bed and then grabbed his pillow close. It was still warm. Rays of the new day shot in through the window, slowly brightening up the room. She closed her eyes, wishing for the night to come.

“Swear I don’t know if the days are as slow as they seem
Wondering when you’ll be with me again and this
Finally can be more than just a dream
But when I close my eyes I want only to stay
Where the farthest you are is a heartbeat away”

The day crept on slowly. Three days since he had left that morning. When he could he’d call and they’d share a short conversation before work pulled them apart again. I love you. I’ll see you soon. I’m almost home. Those were the phrases that kept them both going.

Work and friends kept her busy during the day, even some of the evening, but every night she’d go to the window and look up at the stars. It was an intense feeling and she’d swear that he was out there calling to her.

“And it’s enough knowing you…
(I know that you’re) are calling to me
While you’re dreaming beneath the same moon
All it takes is imagining you
So that I can get through
One more long and lonely day”

•{ Bought the cat . . .

Everything was set for their beach morning picnic rendezvous. The two of them had been so overly busy the last few days that a time to pause and relax was needed. She had sent out a confirmation last night and it was accepted. There was only one thing she didn’t mention. The cat. He wouldn’t stay at home and when she tired to be firm the kitty hit her with those big eyes and she couldn’t say no.

Well, hopefully he wouldn’t mind the cat.

•{ the Wolves . . .

She flexed her fingers around the dagger in her hand and let out a slow and steady breath. The cold wood against her back gave a small measure of comfort as the wolves howled not far off. Chancing a glance around the trunk she saw the group of them. At first glance they looked almost innocent and non-threatening, but she knew better. She had seen what they did to the travelers up the road and she was not going to be their next victim.

For a moment longer she waited and watched. A quick prayer was whispered to the old gods and then she made a run for it. . . .
