Midas did not like this, He thought their bond would never faulter. He wasn’t going to die so easily so he plotted the greatest escape ever concieved. Continue reading
(Behind rimless lenses, Nicholson glances down at the packs of small chops clutched in Daisy and Kelsey’s hands.)
Actually, we were just…
Come with me a minute… Kelsey.
(Nicholson strolls ahead.)
What did you do?

( Music – Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen)
A black void of nothingness.
i felt minor tremors, as if I was in motion, but…
But I couldn’t move, my limbs weren’t responding.
I force my eyes open.
My senses are overwhelmed. Bright lights roll by ahead of me, straight long beams of light. I takes me a while before finally realising that I am strapped down to some sort of stretcher and being pulled across an awkwardly long hallway. Continue reading
“I heard a million voices crying in pain, their wails were the sound track to my nightmare, accompanied by the imagery of a clock, a grandfather clock but not so much y’know, like something wasn’t quite right with it, maybe it was the color of the blood red wood, or the petrified faces carved into the frame. It probably was because it sounded an ear splitting RING at twenty five o’clock . Flashes soon followed, of images depicting a little girl, bound and gagged, her body, lifeless spread in a corner of what appeared to be a prison cell and on the wall over her body, painted with blood in big block letters were the words QUASIMODO”
Daisy and Kelsey laugh out loud at a random joke.
If Benji was here, he’d ask God to forgive us.
(Silence as the two look over at the empty desk in the corner where Benji once sat. Daisy’s eyes slowly shift over to Kelsey.)
You liked him, didn’t you?
(Ashley waltz in elaborately dressed in a skimpy number throwing her curves rhythymically from left to right. Daisy and Kelsey’s jaws hit the ground completely dazed.)
(Daisy is first to react.)
You stepped out your house like this?

“I feel a lot better now”. Yeah I know you all missed my awesome voice/words.
“Well, you should be, you had an entire day of rest, you lucky son…” Dennis smiled. “anyway whats this all about, you said you have an imaginary person after you?” a curious expression occupying his face.
“well, not exactly… how many times do i have to say it”
“Just once more” Dennis replies.
“Hmm. Okay. So this guy…” I start.
“Is he talking about his Imaginary friend again” Michael spins his chair around to join our conversation. Continue reading
“So, I read your blog” Midas said. “You are one disturbed mutha…”.
I laughed. I like the idea that people get to see inside my head. I would say ‘I’m not crazy’ but anyone could easily reply me with ‘that’s exactly what a crazy person would say’. So i think it would be better if i just admitted…
“I might be crazy”.
Midas’s expression changes, he lifts an eyebrow as if to say, ‘you think?’
He takes a bite out of his burger.
“So, in general, what do you think about it?” I ask Midas, honestly looking for some constructive criticism.
“I think it lacks direction, a bigger picture” he says to my surprise. “I just feel the stories are to disjointed. The events of one don’t really make an impact in the others.” Continue reading
Midday at the Staff Canteen,
It’s a lie.
I wish it was.
What are we gossiping about?
(Runs his cup under the cold water dispenser balancing an empty food tray.)
Wilson got suspended?

saw this on instagram and i thought wow i gotta share this
Kelsey plumps down into her swivel chair sinking into the comfort of the cool leather appreciating the peace and quiet around her. She exhales a soothing sigh. The sudden loud ringing of her office line immediately shatters her moment of serenity. She grabs the phone and places it to her ear.
Hello. Good morning.
Ashley’s an average height young single female. Her glowing fair skin is the first thing you notice about her as well as her super trim waist line. Her outgoing and bubbly nature made her easily sociable. Calling her the office flirt wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. Continue reading
It has been terribly uneventful around the office today. Both Dennis and i had our plates full with work.
I am sooo tired.
At least i can finally go home.
I check my watch, received to see that it reads ‘FiveFourtyTwo’.
I pack up my gear, shoving my laptop into its bag along with my external hard drive and pull out my ear phones to connect to my phone.
with my things packed up, i plug the ear buds into my ear and scroll through my phone for the perfect song to soundtrack my current mood. After a few swipes i find it. Continue reading
Morning, Walter Douglass’ Office
Kelsey, suited in a sharp light grey pants suit, strolls into the private office of Walter Douglas. Her thick shoulder length curly brown hair bounced as she walked over to the table of the middle-aged man dressed impeccably in a plain white shirt and a yellow striped tie.
Good morning, Walter.
Morning, Kels. How was your weekend?
(He looks up at her with a playful smile on his face as he adjusts his spectacles.)
You already know the answer to that, Wally – too short – as always. It’s never quite enough. Once I get up Sunday mornings, my mind’s already on Monday – passionately dreading it. Continue reading
16th Avenue (a new page)
Other stories from around the office. Maybe the same office, Maybe not.
CONTINUED from through the window.
…And the smoke from the final lightning bolt clears and i see the two back in their original form, or at least how they first appeared when i awoke.
Ebony and Ivory. They Stood tall with so much sovereignty and authority that it oozed of their body in a golden aura mist.
SO here is where my mind gets blown cuz I’m not a religious guy, i really don’t care either way; christianity, Buddhism, Allah, Krishna e.t.c It all goes over my head, Agnostic and proud. Continue reading
“What i saw yesterday, i couldn’t believe”
Michael announces as he arrives for work (late at 8:24)
“And it was right after i finished praying…”
Dennis rolls his eyes, the others give a condescending chuckle and i just ignore him.
“guy, whatever time you leave your house, start leaving thirty minutes earlier.” Dennis says to mike with all seriousness, which make the others lose it.
even i, let out a smile.
me on my phone entering the elevator on Thursday.
potential banner, maybe.
The story continues on Tuesday.
i saw this today and decided to take a picture for no reason, looks cool tho…
I don’t have to be in a building to be ‘In the Office’, the world is my office.
Enjoy your weekend, i know i wont but i really don’t want to be a buzz kill.
Hope the world doesn’t explode while I’m away.
BTW what do you think would happen next week, please comment.

REQUEST FOR A DAY OFF WORK
I would like to request permission to be absent from work on Friday, 3rd of June, to attend the funeral of my great grandmother who finally died last weekend.
I step out of the car and check my watch which reads ‘7:35’.
“yesss” i say under my breath, “early”.
I stare up at the tall, sky scraper of the building where i work, the early sun glistens off the polished glass windows. i sigh then take the few steps that lead me into the building.
So, I’m sure u vigilant haters out there are thinking – ‘how are you live typing this? you obviously don’t have your laptop with you’.
Well thats why God made iPhones!. Shit my boss is about to walk into the elevator, i push the button for the seventh floor (click).
