“Star Wars”, and “The Empire Strikes Back” are the the reasons that I wanted to be a Filmmaker… And though I haven’t been Following much in regards to the New Films that are coming, I was very happy that Disney Bought the Rights to the Franchise… Because I feel it should continue on, with or without George, even though he is still involved… That said, I’m very Excited to see this Announcement, and seeing it just… Well… There it is. The fact is, two of my All Time Heroes are Walt Disney, and George Lucas… And so I am happy with this, like I say. Truth be known, I wish it was My Brother and I making these Films, but I wasn’t quite able to make that happen, Lol May the Force be with everyone involved in the Films, and all of the New…

Dark Angel

“Tenshi”

by DarkJade

“You Can Not Help Her…”

“Our Time Has Come…”

“She Needs To Figure This Out For Herself…”

“And Passed…”

If I Can Not Protect Her

Then I Will Be With Her

If I Can Not Guide Her

Then I Will Know Her

NEW YORK

2003

FARE MOORE JUNIOR HIGH

A young, dark haired girl sits Indian Style on a bench, with a notebook in her lap…

Her arms are over her head, as she rocks herself

On the pages of her notebook, are words, half poems, horrific drawings, and ink smears where her tears have fallen

In the distance, three girls notice her

Jessy, Elizabeth and Stacey

All fairly popular girls

“What’s wrong with her…” says Jessy…

“Maybe we should try and talk to her,” speaks Stacey

“No… Leave her alone,” says Elizabeth, who indicates they should move on, and stop staring

“So Many Thoughts…”

“Too Many Thoughts…”

“Too Much Responsibility”

The girl known as Tenshi thinks to herself, as she continues to rock herself, her arms still over her head

FIVE YEARS LATER

A CONNECTICUT COLLEGE

Tensh is 18 now, and is in college

Carrying many books, she thinks to herself

“Maybe If I Just Learn…”

“Learn… Learn… Learn”

“Hello Tenshi,” speaks a guy’s voice from behind her

She turns to see Greg Norman

She half smiles, nods, and continues on her way

He is shocked that she did not stay and flirt with him

“No Time… No Time”

Tenshi enters her room, and opens her computer

Flipping through earth events on the screen

“Too Much Wrong…”

“Too Much To Fix”

She closes her computer, and falls back onto her bed, staring up at the ceiling… Beyond the ceiling

“I Can’t Do This…”

“I Can’t Change The World”

“It’s Too Much”

FIVE YEARS LATER

Tenshi is working at a coffee house…

Wiping the counter

She is lost in thought

“Water Is So Clear…”

“So Very Clear”

She thinks as she watches the droplets of water on the counter sparkle from the sunlight coming in through the window

“Why is your name Tenshi, if you’re not Japanese?” suddenly speaks a voice at the counter

Tenshi looks up at a Japanese guy in his twenties

He is with two other not Japanese friends

Tenshi doesn’t answer

20 MINUTES LATER

Tenshi is drawing in a notebook, but isn’t happy with the results

“I could never draw…” comes a voice from a two tables over

Tenshi looks over to see a man in his thirties or forties reading a newspaper

She can not see his face

She continues to draw

“No Time… No Time”

“There’s always time for life…” speaks the voice

Tenshi freezes

“Did That Guy Just Read My Thoughts?”

She looks back, but the guy is gone…

She sees him from behind as he leaves the shop

That’s when she notices a black business card left on his table

She steps over and picks it up… “IF YOU FIND TIME” it says in white writing

And the number (777) 777-7777, and the name Akero

“Akero… Ok, that was creepy”

She leaves the card, and goes back to work

LATER THAT NIGHT

2:24AM

Tenshi wakes up screaming and sweating

“TOO MUCH!!!”

She makes her way to the kitchen, opens the fridge, an pours herself some soy milk

She sits down at her table which is in the kitchen, and opens up her notebook

She begins to draw an Angel

It comes out lovely… Not sellable… But nice

“I Can’t Wait Anymore…”

“Working At A Coffee House Isn’t Helping The World”

“I’m A 23 Year Old Woman…”

“And I Know What I’m Meant To Do”

“I Just Don’t Know How I’m Supposed To Do It”

Tenshi looks down at her picture of the Angel, and notices that she’s written the number 7 over and over again, circling the Angel with them…

“No…”

“I’m not calling some stranger dude at 3am in the morning to discuss the meaning of life…”

10 MINUTES LATER

Tenshi is laying on her back in bed, holding her cell phone above her

Typed into it are the numbers (777) 777-7777

Her thumb, which has chipped white nail polish on it, is grazing over the call button

“This is crazy…” she sets the phone down on a small table by her bed, leaving the numbers typed in it

ONE HOUR LATER

Tenshi wakes screaming again…

“Truthhhhhhh!!”

She is sweating again, wraps her arms around her legs, and starts to cry

At some point she looks over at her phone…

BLEEP

She receives a text…

She  is scared… But picks up the phone anyway

There is only one word

“Truth”

Book Spotlight “I Died Once” by James Mahoney

My Novella “I Died Once” was Showcased over on Emma Meade’s Site DJ-

Originally posted on Emma's Ramblings :

James sent me an email about his story, I Died Once. With a title like that, I could hardly pass up the opportunity to spotlight it here on Emma’s Ramblings on Supernatural Fiction. Scroll on for the enigmatic blurb and haunting book cover.

I DIED ONCE – NOVELLA

I Died Once CoverI Died Once (Novella);

Mady was a Dark Child…

She often sat alone in her bedroom, on the floor… Sorting through this or that, generally some sort of pharmaceuticals.

It’s good that she was never allowed to own a Cat… Or a Fish… Or any other sort of domestic animal, as they would have likely ended up at the end of some sort of experimentation… With drastic results.

It’s not that she’s “mean” for say… No.

It’s more that she is disjointed… An outcast really, from her own home…

From her Mother’s Heart.

Yes, Mady is a dark one… But what else…

CHAPTER XVI – The End… Is Not… The End

“I Dream In Black And White…”

“And Speak In Third Person”

“In Fact…”

“I’m Dreaming Now…”

As I approach my Club “Monroe’s” from the street, late into the night…

It is abandoned…

Empty

The only light to be seen being the Flashing “Monroe’s” Sign, which almost seems to be shorting out…

As it Flicks on, and almost off, every hand full of seconds…

I reach for the door handle which is cold…

Behind me a rain and mist slowly envelopes the club, and me…

But not before I turn the handle, and go in…

All is Dark…

Save the faint light glow from down the stairs leading into the club…

SMACK!

I hear a sound…

Resembling the noise made when the butcher slams down a large slab of meat onto the block, to be cut into smaller pieces…

I don’t take more than three steps down the barely lit stairs before…

SMACK!

That sound again

Who is it?

Whose down there?

And what is that terrible sound…

As I make my way down the stairwell, the sound continues every five seconds or so

And when I finally reach the bottom of the stairs…

I can hardly believe my eyes

A blindfolded man sits in a chair in the middle of the tabled room, some 25 feet away, hands tied behind the chair…

His back is facing me

Also in the room are two men dressed in black suits…

They do not look friendly

Before I know it

SMACK!

One of the men in black smacks the man in the chair, blood shoots across the room, landing on the floor…

Where there is already blood

I go to scream ‘No’, but suddenly a hand covers my mouth, and a man is behind me, holding me still

“Mady… Wait,” speaks the voice.

It’s Billy

Meanwhile the men continue to issue a beating on the man in the chair…

And that’s when I see it…

Sitting on the closest table is a rustic, leather hat…

The hat…

This hat…

Is my Father’s…

Mady wakes in a sweat, in the bed of her New York highrise apartment…

Which she has kept in addition to the home that she primarily stays in

BAM! BAM! BAM!

Someone’s at her door…

Mady gets up wearing nothing, crosses in front of the moonlit window, her form black as shadow,  quickly throws on a black silk robe, and wraps the belt

She opens the door…

It’s Billy

“Mady! They’ve got Mack! he says as he steps inside…

“Oh no…” Mady replies under her breath… Then eyes her black purse

“Father Is This How It’s Supposed To Be…”

Mady and Billy are in the back of her long black Limo

“They say they’re going to kill him unless we deliver half of our profits to them every week…” explains Billy

The Limo tears around a corner, as a hard rain begins to fall almost out of nowhere

Did I Miss Something In All Of Your Teachings…”

“It will be alright Billy… We’ll figure this out,” Mady says as she places her hand on one of Billy’s knees to calm him…

He is sweating profusely…

“Should I Have Never Come Here To The States…”

The Limo comes to a screeching halt in front of “Monroe’s”, and there are four black suited mob thugs standing out front, like some sort of sentry…

Billy and Mady each grab for their door handles, but Mady in turn reaches back without looking, grabbing Billy’s other arm, “No Billy… You stay here… This is my battle.”

She then steps out of the car, carrying her black purse, “But Mady!” calls Billy after her

“Am I Really Just A Young Foolish Girl…”

Mady walks straight by the mob sentries without even casting a gaze in their direction…

They look at one another, then follow her down the stairs to the heart of her club…

“Either Way It’s Only Me Now… You Can Not Save Me This Time”

Mady comes around the corner to see Mack tied up to a chair, facing towards her, his face is bloodied…

Two black suited mobsters stand near him, one rubbing his fist, as he has obviously used it repeatedly…

Mady’s eyes go black…

She steps towards Mack, reaches him, and touches his face, “Mack… I’m so sorry.”

The mobsters look at one another…

The other four mobsters have now entered the room as well, and line its entrance

Mack looks at Mady through the eye that isn’t blood sealed up, “Mady… You shouldn’t have come.”

“I’m getting you out of here,” she says, as she steps towards one of the tables, and removes a knife from a rolled napkin…

With this one of the mobsters steps towards her, “I’m afraid I can’t let you do that—” he starts to stay when…

…Mady turns towards him, her black purse dropping to the floor, and aims her silver revolver right at his forehead…

BLAM!
