New Story: “Muerte Azul”

Muerte Azul

I’ve been hard at work for the last few years writing stories.  It’s part of the reason why comics have been so slow in coming.  Sorry, but when the spirit takes you, you just gotta obey.

In the coming days and weeks, I’ll be posting some of these fresh batches of fiction on the site.  First up, is Muerte Azul, a short little tale about a graduation after party.  Here is a sample:

By the time Kevin reached the hill, many more gray people were out.  They came out of the trees, out of the shadows.  None of them came out of the houses.  They glowed with an eerie light, like wisps floating across a swamp.  Altogether they moved in a silent rhythm.  More came up behind Kevin and he was forced to go with them.

The road went on for miles, but the gray people did not tire.  Kevin asked what was going on.  Only one responded, a short woman with branches in her hair, by holding a finger to her lips.  The road eventually reached a massive hill.  It was dotted with small stones.  The strangers were gathering at the summit.  Kevin was suddenly gripped with a desire to go home.  He tried to back away from the Great Hill.  The gray people held out their arms, blocking his path.  Kevin found himself getting closer to the top of the hill.
