...or as I originally wanted to title it: Spear-it of the West.
Awesome clothes, great pose- and nice spear. Disney should make a movie about him, lol.
*sending a chubby, balding little man in a cheap gray business suit to Ellen's door*
*nudges Rod Serling to say his lines.* Rod Serling: "What? Oh, sorry... here goes... There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone."
I was so absorbed by the story that I had almost asked you to send him around to my door... well done!
Creative, and ever so slightly Twilight Zone-y. I keep expecting Rod Serling. Very well written. - Rachel
Would love to read your story, Cailean. Interesting to see the way different writers shape similar ideas into stories.
It reminded me very much of my own piece, "The Dealer", which has a disreputable street dealer selling emotions on the corner like fake Rollex watches ... good stuff
Thank you for a wonderful complement. It's rare getting responses from epilogue guests, our mysterious readers at whom we're aiming when posting our stories. So happy you enjoyed it! For personal reasons, I like this story, too...
The concept was very original, the ending was superb, and the phrasing and writing was very simple, direct, and engrossingly enjoyable. It's the perfect length, the perfect idea, and I'm delighted with the end line. Wonderful job!
