The Man in the Clouds (A story with Aliens and a Man) Biscuit Tale

As he journeyed he traveled up and up

he moved up and up into the Heavens

but he did not get as far as he hoped

his ship fell

it crashed

but he lived

the planet was breathable

he met a friendly creature and the creature stood on two legs just as he

the creature took him in and became his friend

he met friends of the creature and the friends were kind as well

BUT the creature and his friends warned him to not go across the line

“The other side is not safe.”

they said.  he was warned to not go out and meet the others who lived across the line

the others were monsters who spewed venom

but the man was not always wise and of course wanted to see for himself … …

The Ambiguous Man (A man of many sides)

The man traveled into town.

He had a nice night and met a girl who was kind and smart.   The man wanted to go with the girl to his room.   She accepted his invitation.   She found the man to be a kind and gentle lover.

The next day came.  The man awoke from his slumber.  He had slept peacefully and was tired from his love-making.

He walked about the town.   The man was handsome.   The women of the town would often look at him as he walked past.

Night came soon enough.   The man went to the local bar.   He saw the girl from the night before and he politely waved at her.   When he was at the bar he found another man who was sitting alone.   He sat next to this Lonely Man.  He took a liking to this Lonely Man.  The man explained he did not have a room for the night and he needed somewhere to stay.  The Lonely man said the Man could sleep with him.  The wandering man who had entered the town only a day before accepted the offer.  That night the two men made love together.

The Man woke up the next day.  His body was sore from love-making.   When the Man decided to get out of bed it was near noon.  As he walked outside there were some tough men who stood in the street and looked at him.

Their leader spoke, “It’s time for you to go.”

The Man looked at their leader:  “Why is that?”

“You have crossed the line.  Men like yourself are not welcome here.”  Their leader spoke again.

“What kind of a Man am I?”  Asked the Man.

“Don’t get fresh with me!  The good people of this town saw you with the other man last night.  Such a thing is an abomination and not welcome in our town.  You must leave at once.  If you do not leave on your own, we will have to remove you by force.”  Their leader spoke bluntly and clearly.

“I understand.  Thank you for your hospitality.”  Said The Man.

The wandering man, who had entered the town and who had been with two different partners during his time, left the town.  He walked on in search of a new town.

The Forever Soldier Continued Again

April 18th

“Have you always been a civilian?”   Asked the solider.

“As long as I can remember.”

“And How long is that?”

“I’m not quite sure.  But I know I have always lived in this city.”

“So why do you question me about my past If you don’t even know your own?”

“I just want to understand.”

“Understand what?”

“How is it possible?  How could you live so long and see so much but not age at all?”

“Maybe it is God.”

“You think it is God?”

“It must be.  How else could I be an immortal?”

“I don’t know.  I don’t know.  But why do you always follow the orders?”

“I’m a soldier.  That is what I do.”

“Been when you get an order from Leader … you never think about not obeying the order?”

“I never do.  What is there to think about?”

The Leader and her Followers

PUNCH!

The woman slammed her fist into the man’s face.

“Don’t defend yourself you coward!”  The lady yelled out as she punched the man again in the face.

“I am going to punch the devil out of you.”

The man was bleeding from his nose and he fell to the floor.

The lady looked around.  You could see the bloodlust in her eyes.  Her holy eyes fell onto an unsuspecting baby.

She grabbed the baby and shook it violently.

“Devil!  Get out of this baby!”

The crowd of people looked on.  Their horror was hidden within their minds.  They were trapped.  Followers of their leader.  None of them wanted to have the Devil within them and they also wanted their own salvation.

The woman turned on a man who had a smile on his face.

“You!  You are thinking erotic thoughts!  The Devil is in you! Go to The Room!”

The man was frowning.  He walked away.

Going to The Room was a severe punishment.

UnNamed Dave – Part 7 – Dishwashers

Dave was busy calling.  He was trying to make many calls and hit a specific metric of calls.  One of the Sales Directors had told him he needs to make contact with a specific account, the account being Swiss and large.  He was hustling to get in contact but the company was Huge and he was getting bounced around inside his company.

Man on Phone:  Hello, you have reached Power Tools.

Dave:  Hello, I am trying to find a man named Williams.  I think he is a software developer.

Man on Phone:  This is Power Tools, let me transfer you.

(Dave waited)(beep beep music music)

New Man on Phone:  Hello.  Dishwashers!  How may I help you?

Dave:  Hello.  I am trying to find a man by the name of Williams.  He is a software developer in your company.

New Man on Phone:  You do know that this is Dishwashers correct?  We don’t make software in this department.

Dave:  Yes.  But I am trying to find a man by the name of Williams.  He is using some software from my company and I need to track this man down.

New Man on Phone:  Okay.  I am going to transfer you to Power Tools.

Dave:  No!  They transferred me to you.

New Man on Phone:  Okay.  Okay.  Williams you say?  Let me look that name up.

(tap tap tap keyboard sound)

New Man on Phone:  Okay.  There is a Williams in the USA actually.  Here is the number.

(Dave took down the number)

Dave:  Thank you sir.  (Hang up phone)

Dave dialed the number.  It was ringing.  It rang five times and went to voicemail.

New New Man on Phone voice:  Hello there.  You have reached Frank Williams at Facility Maintenance.  Please leave me a message and I will return your call when I get a chance.  Thank you.

Frank Williams sounded to be a man with a thick accent.  Dave did not want to judge this man by his voice but he had a feeling that he was not a software developer.

Dave let out a small sigh.  “20 minutes of work to find a facility maintenance man in the USA.  Not helpful.” Dave thought.

Dave still had many calls to make.

November 3rd, 2016

The man walked on.  He had left the land behind him.   He continued on the path.

 

He heard a tear as he walked.  He looked to his right and he noticed there was a rift in time.  The portal stood floating in the air revealing stars and space.

“I guess this begins my adventure.”

The man walked to the portal and stepped forward.   The portal squeezed him and he flew into it and through it.

He landed with his feet on the ground.   The ground had green grass.   The world he was in seemed the same as the world he had left.  He could breath the air.  The man stared at his right arm but it was still mechanical.

“HEY YOU!”  A voice yelled.

The man turned.   There before him was an orange blob.

“Who said that?”  The man asked.

“It is Me!  I am BLOBulous.”  The orange blob spoke.  The blob had a masculine voice.
