stories are the same in any language.

She turned her back to Vinay and marched stiffly toward the village center. The sour taste of fear crept into her throat, and once around the bend her stomach heaved. Hot, bitter tears cut a swath through the brittle crust of dried blood at the corner of her mouth. But her fear was no more.

Aur Nahin: "No More"

very cool, mojo..you always have interesting 55s :) i'm not up yet...maybe at midnight or sometime tomorrow for sure! LOL

Mojo said...

@Kaknu: Oh she still has it. And I think I'm gonna let her keep it for the duration. I think that's gonna be her "silver candlesticks". Or the rusty steel equivalent thereof anyway.

@Smoofus: No, actually I don't know... 'Cause it doesn't seem at all weird to me to be writing her story. (And I'd make a damn funny lookin' woman... I'm way to too furry.) I'm dying to see where your serial goes since you've come to the dark side now.

@Ciara: You're so sweet to me. I went looking for yours but it wasn't up yet. But I'll be around, never you worry.

Tune in next week. Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel. (This is actually turning out to be more fun than I imagined.)

@G-Man: Shh! (looking around) I'll lose my membership in the Loyal Order of Testosterone-Based Life Forms - Local 507 if you let that get out.
