Khrysoar – Picture It and Write

Minerva’s temple was a distant memory. Khrysoar, himself never cast his sight on his much malign mother. Raised in great wealth, his fate was from glorious solider to owner of a herd. One doesn’t need to be fall so far when the blood of gods course through your veins.

Its was time to call upon his brother. He would find something of his mother. Perseus had cowardly slain his mother. Attacking in her sleep was no way for demigod to perish. His father told him to live, not avenge. Pegasus owned him a couple of favors. It was the to call them in.

The damage to medusa was severe, her children sprung from her neck. The evils of turning people to stone was a myth, surely her family would do the same. Never had Khrysoar seen it done.

Pegasus flew him to the seen of the crime. It was empty. Many years had passed. Legends grew, memories faded.

A temple girl named Aja, was applying herself with oils and flowers. Khrysoar spoke to get her attention.

When she looked. .. She turned to stone.

Almost Three


The day we plan for …wedding day. The magic time was 3. Betty and Jonathon a pair of thirty year olds with 200 family, friends, and somebodies brought along. The church and tower filled to over flowing with teal and white.

The din of the crowd inside the church is almost overwhelming. The nervous group of brides maids look themselves over. They are giddy. In other room, the groom party is starting to celebrate early.

The preacher is lighting the candles. The photographers are digging in their positions. The organist starts to tap a couple of notes. Babies are starting to fuss. Time is crawling to 3pm.

From the back of the church, a door pops open. Jonathan is choking on anxiety. He’s making a run away attempt. This is just way too much.

“Oh my god! Betty… she’s gone. . How could she leave like this? ”

Favorite Book

This is part of a stream of consciousness writing challenge. Precious Joy,, is who choose topic of favorite book. Five minutes of writing with no editing. The topic changes. See bottom for victim list


My favorite book of all time, “Something Wicked this Way Comes” by Ray Bradbury. It’s a story of boys just turning thirteen.   Jim Nightshade and Will Halloway are best friends and neighbors sharing every waking moment together.   Will has prefect family life wuth older parents.   Jim has no father, and is disparate to get old to leave this town.

A week before Halloween, a night train cries out to the boys.  Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show rolls into town in middle of the night.   The barber tells people about the smell of ladies from foreign lands and cotton candy.   Flyers now down the street. Empty store had banner announcing circus.   A strange parade goes through town.

Dark’s plan is to feed on the desired and wants of the town.   Drawing puerile in with special lure of the fair.   A showdown with Will’s father provides a climax.   Could you choose telling where your child is or being young enough to play with them?

A dark (pun, sorry) and Dark tale.
