Short no. Grave mistake? (Part 2)

Midnight Me. By CpSingleton © 2017 

I shrugged and did as Me requested, which was sit.

I was intrigued to find his colour less ice blue and more of a warmer purple, now that I was face to face.

The gravestone, however, immediately felt like it was freezing my bum cheeks.

‘Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it,’ Me told me. ‘Or your arse Cherie will fall off and drop out of yo r jean legs,’ The strange creature added before cackling so loud that it scared some unseen animals into squealing within the bushes they were quietly hiding in.

Despite Me obviously not being of human stock, which was apparent by the six horns that protruded from its forehead like a crown and the way…

‘Can you read my mind?’ I asked.

‘Sort of.’

‘You either can or you can’t. If you can, why ask me so many questions?’

‘I can pick on things, yes. I asked because it’s only polite and it established a baseline to whether or not you are to be trusted?’

‘A what line? Trusted for what?’

‘Friendship, of course.’

‘You want me as a friend?’ I asked, not disguising my surprise to well.

‘Don’t you want me as a friend?’ Me asked.

‘I suppose I’d rather have you as a friend than be eaten.’ I told him, unsure of the right answer, yet knowing that he’d see through a lie like looking through a plain glass window.

‘Well isn’t that just so heartwarming. I feel so honoured that, if I had a similar cardiovascular to your own, my main pump would fill with tears.’

I must admit to not fully grasping his meaning at the time.


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.
