That Was So Weird

The grill made a crackling noise and he looked back over to the coals. Even from this distance, he could see that one of the briquets had a very pronounced crack in it. Calum frowned. That was so weird. He moved back over to the grill.

When the tiny leg poked its way out of the charcoal, he dropped his beer bottle in startled amazement. The bottle shattered on the concrete floor of the garage, spraying his jeans with splashing liquid and spattering flecks of foam.

Something Bad Always Happens

You may have heard parts of this story before. It begins with a young martial artist forsaking violence for a peaceful way of life. He has a hot temper, and this always seems to get him into trouble, so the young man goes to the temple to study under the wise monks to learn their simple ways, and to learn how to keep his anger under control. The young man continues to train in the martial arts, of course, as that is part of his holy life. He uses kung fu to keep his body as fit as his mind. He struggles to remain chaste and pure, doing his best to ignore the sweet advances of a young woman he sees in the village on his rare visits into town (but fails — several times).

As you are probably aware of the tragic plights that befall most of these young men, then you know something always happens to rip the young martial artist out of his peaceful life. Always. Either his sister gets murdered, or a monster made of straw nearly decapitates him, or the village he grew up in gets destroyed, or a one-eyed dragon stalks him, or an ancient warrior made of stone attacks him, or a demon torments him, or his brother monks in the temple get slaughtered, or a skeleton army assaults him, or an entire school burns down with the children still inside. Something bad always happens to rip the young martial artist away from his idyllic life in the temple, forcing him to embrace the violent creature that exists deep inside himself.

Usually, though, not all of those horrific things happen to the same guy. Except this time they did.

The Black Market For Memories

The black market for memories was a scary place. What was really scary to Paulo was how pristine and pure the whole place looked, despite what was being sold here. Everything was polished and shiny, chrome and whiteness, gleaming with cleanness. Yet he knew many of the memory sticks sold here contained dark and horrible things, twisted and macabre activities, heinous events and horrid crimes, terrible tragedies, and the pain-filled end to many lives. So what are you doing here? he wondered again. God, he hated this business. He hated everything about it, yet he couldn’t stay away. Nobody could stay away from the memory sticks anymore. Everyone in the world seemed addicted to them. Yeah, but most of them stick to the legal memories. The happy family memories. The adventurous travel memories. The triumphant sports memories. The movie star memories. The sex memories. Oh, but not you. No. You’re never happy with what normal people do. You always gotta have more. You’re here because you are a sick, twisted fuck.

The Dead Man In The Coffin

Blake Goldwin stared at the dead man in the coffin, trying to figure out how he could get the suit off Robert’s corpse without anyone finding out. How the hell do you get a suit off a corpse? Blake had no idea. But somehow he was going to figure it out.

Robert always had said that the suit was the real source of his wealth and his sex appeal. He had said it was indestructible. He couldn’t rip it. He couldn’t cut it. He couldn’t even burn it (and Robert said he had tried). It was some kind of super suit.

Scared For Their Eternal Souls

Those Jap soldiers out in the Philippine jungles, they were scared for real. Scared for their eternal souls, which was far worse to them than being scared about dying from a bullet from an M1 or a Springfield, or dying from the stabbing slash of a trench knife. The flesh and bone of your body eventually rots away to nothing no matter how you die, but your eternal soul goes on forever. Even their macho bushido code couldn’t protect them from the everlasting dishonor and damnation from a vampire’s bite.

We used nails the first time on a Jap that was dead a few days. We had to dress up the holes and smear some blood around them to give them that authentic touch, but they looked pretty good after we were done. We decorated him real nice. Greely was too scared to do it. He didn’t have the stomach for desecrating the dead. Me? I didn’t give a shit. Not after what those Japanese savages did to McDowd and Valentino. You ever see a man with his dick cut off and shoved into his mouth? I have. More than once. No, I had no problem at all picking up a rusty nail and stabbing a few holes into that dead Jap’s neck to simulate a vampire’s bite. No problem at all.
