Storm Siren

More like lack thereof. 'Cause I don't remember hearin' ANY before we got bombarded with that storm.


I guess it's more metaphorical. Like there should be one going off because I think something big is going to happen.


Regardless...the sunset outside is beautiful. It's like...this smooth blend of soft yellow and orange under this sheet of passing storm clouds..
I'm resisting my designer's instinct to call it something else.
EDIT: You mean a graaaadieeeeeent? :P
EDIT: DAMN IT SETH.

Back on topic. Right.

So I went outside and met Fox in the little side yard between my house and the neighbor's.

"So I guess you know what I want?" I shouted over the wind.

"A little quieter. I can hear you just fine," he said calmly.

I didn't really realize that everything had gone quiet. He'd transported us to a little pocket of their realm (or whatever it is.)

"You can't be in here long. Let's do this quickly."

"Oh. Right. Aiden-"

"Should be watched closely, lest he be infested more. You might want to coax him out of that disgusting new habit, by the way."

"Glad I'm not the only one that thinks that's gross...and unsanitary. Wait, why are you helpi-"

"Don't question my motives."

"Oh...uhm...okay. So wh-"

"And no. I have nothing to do with lights of any color, before you ask that preposterous question."
"That wasn't the question I was asking."

"You did theorize once."

"You're markedly more moody."

"Rodents are such pests."

"Aiden's a rodent."

"You know what I mean."

"Again. What's going on between you and Rat?"

"We've never gotten along."

"You lied before?"

"I don't see why you're surprised. And not entirely. We did organize this way partly for geographical purposes."

"And the other part?"

"Rat is a narcissistic bastard."

And here is where I laugh. Then I realize my lungs hurt. Really bad.

"You need to get out," Fox says urgently.

"One last question."

He sighs. "What?"

"Everyone that's acting weird and disappearing...are they following..."

"What do you think?"

And that's the last thing he tells me.

Then the wind is whipping in my face again. Fox is gone. Ace is running circles around me and crying, wondering where I'd gone.


So. Fox and Rat don't get on too well. Something is going on with Crow's crows (wow that IS stupid sounding). And Fox makes it sound like I'm right.

That it is directly connected to the Owl. And to our friends.


The sun's shining through the curtains now. Real bright. It's nice! It's like a song we played in concert band last year..."Sunburst". I played bells on it. The dingy things in the background.

I think I'll find that for you...Sunburst
(Go to where it says Streaming Audio and click the little play button.)

I'm going back outside now. This is too pretty to miss.

  1. Wait, following what? I'm confused. Again. That's been happening more and more lately...

  2. What I meant to say before Fox cut me off was, "Are they following the Owl?"

    The Owl we assume is Skye. Whom we still can't find. Apparently she's been around home (says her mom), but she won't answer anything. She's been real distant too, and only pops up at her house for short periods of time before disappearing again.

    We think the Owl is going to be corrupted. And it's too late to stop it...

  6. BRENNON. Brennon. I don't either.

    Maybe I can talk to Fox again...maybe...

    I'll try. He's our best bet.

    I...actually have a soft spot for him and Crow now...

  7. Every time I think of Crow I think of The crow from Secret of NIHM (I Do't know why I can't remember his name) When I think of Fox, I think of the Lucius from Taben and Ry's character from their video project.

    I'll keep a close eye on him. It'll be easier now that he's out. I'll pay Ry and Taben to keep close eye on him tomorrow if I have to.

  10. I have no clue what's going on. Aiden woke up screaming for his brother and sister. It scared the heck out of me to just have him jump up and start flailing and screaming. All he did was keep asking about Candy and Dean. He got on his computer posted then was about to post an entry and he just mumbled and crawled into bed. i'd have posted his entry for him but it was so jumbled from being half asleep at the keyboard. I'm so confused. And worried. Gonna make a call to his parents and check on his brother and sister.
