The Treacle Rush

The Treacle Rush. re-edited (part 11)By CpSingleton (c) 2012



The two cars anxious cars eventually stumbled across ‘The Aquarius’, with a mixture of trepidation and excitement.

It was set in what seemed to all to be a street not long for demolition. Rows of Victorian buildings cluttered the area like rotting teeth. The owners of the club kept advertisement to a small hand-painted sign over the door and left two huge Asian bouncers to look after it.

One single, solitary street-lamp was all that lit the sinister street and that seemed a little shy in doing so. The two drivers decided to park under the lonely light, under the misconception that robbers don’t break into cars under streetlights. What they failed to be aware of is that the robbers from that part of town don’t only steal cars from underneath streetlights; they take the streetlights as well.

As they all got out of the cars they could hear the faintest beat of music and, through the apprehension and paranoia,Besty whooped with delight.

Besty was the real ‘raver’ of the group and could get high on water. His natural energy was boundless and, capped with a certain effeminate quality, many people’s first impression of Saville was that he was gay. Whether he was or not, and it didn’t bother any of them, it was widely agreed that he definitely was one hell of a dancer. This fact didn’t escape the two monsters on the door, although, as impressed as they may have been, it wasn’t in their job description to convey such thoughts.

‘You don’t have any drugs on you, do you?’ Monster-one asked the group.

‘No,’ they all replied in rehearsed unison. All then made a point of patting their pockets.

Alex had, oh so cleverly, hidden his speed in his socks.

Monster-two leaned forward, realising it was its cue to intimidate. ‘If any of you need any, then make sure you get them from the bar.’ They all nodded. ‘’Cos if any of you think of selling anything, you haven’t told us you have, we’ll…er…have yer. Cos there’s no-one around here to hear you scream.’ His left eye twitched for a moment, as his mind asked itself if that was all it needed to say. Satisfied, it stood erect, its face lifeless, like a statue in a horror movie.

Paranoia swept across the groups’ faces. They gulped unanimously and, to another less enthusiastic whoop from Besty, nervously stepped between the two doormen and entered.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
