Buffalo Girls, Go Round the Outside
“I have the search results you asked for, I made sure to use the safe function and only have results that will offer no danger from hackers or virus. Only sites that have the best security and updated certificates,” Mickey explained to Kana. Kana sat holding the Multidev in her hands maintaining a serene expression. It was an expression that she had been practicing ever since she moved into her compartment on board the TransOtrak.
Mickey could see Kana’s expressions through the camera embedded in the device. A multidime camera at that. This expression said, ‘I am pleased with everything you do; I am not upset; I do not want to throw you out of the window and into the ocean. I do not want to punt you down the aisle and see how many bounces you take before you break into pieces.
“Well, okay, Mickey, how many results is that?”
“There were no safe results, Kana.”
“Hmpf…,” is what Kana emitted from her serene expression.
“Kana, I sense elevated levels in your blood pressure, have you recently eaten something high in sodium?”
“No, I’m fine, Mickey. Mickey, how can there be no results? Or, maybe what I’m asking is, why didn’t you just say there were no results?”
Here is a small anthology of writings I submitted to some contest or other. It has a lot of original versions of stories that have since been polished and published here. Piece Process for one. After the initial run of Piece Process was through I moved to WordPress from GoDaddy and just didn’t repost. I’ve been developing a comic book and I want to keep the story as safe as I can. Don’t post anything that you can stand to have (possibly stolen). It costs a lot of money to sue big corporations But alas, it is all copyrighted. Feel free to download if you like, print, whatever.
CHAPTER 23: JACKIES DEAD, THAT’S WHAT I SAID
Kana’s eyes snapped open and she found herself in her parent’s room neatly tucked in bed. She noticed she was naked when her legs and breasts moved against the quilt. She didn’t remember how she got into bed or much, after hopping on the back of Ginger’s vapo. She wanted to get up and see what was going on in the world but she couldn’t drag herself out of bed. She was exhausted so she decided to lay there and stare at the ceiling. She could sleep a little more too.
“Monitor,” she commanded as HD images materialized at the foot of the bed. “Search comedy feeds. Find me something funny.” The images changed rapidly and then slowed as scenes from comedy feeds played for a few seconds then moved on to another program. Nothing caught her eye. “Go to 5 star rated, most popular and most recent.”
The monitor selected an animated program. Kana looked at it for a moment then relaxed, stared at the ceiling and listened. She didn’t want her mind to wander. There was too much dangerous territory. Her mind had turned into a really bad neighborhood. It was an abrupt decline. Once such a fun and innocent place, now her memories were a bloodbath and thoughts tempered with mortal fear. Her story, a tragedy.
Kana Claylocke’s parents have just died in a mysterious car accident. In her father’s safe she finds a scrap of paper with a cryptic message. This three word message is all she has to solve the mystery of what happened to her parents. She enlists the help of her Artificial Intelligence named Cutty to find the secret club her father was a member of; the Tsuba Guard. But once down this hole, Kana finds that she’s crossed into a dark and vicious world of gangsters and street samurai.
