Submission type:



I hears the music playin' but it sounds so far away, mostly I feels it's beat..

Ka-thump ... Ka-thump ...Ka-thump..


No wait, that aint the music...

It's my heart beating so hard it hurts the inside of my chest..

an the outside of me is burnin' like fire.

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump


At least my leg aint hurting so much now, but harder to make it move so gotta drag it, its all big an heavy now.

I smell the food Hyle has waitin fer me ...

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump


The smell of my leakin' leg makes me not hungry though..

food is nassy. 

My bike wont start.. 

or at least not in my dream, cuz I'm kinda sure none of this is real. 

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump

My little buddy says we need to go before Lifenet gets me... that Lifenet wants to make me go away 

Lifenet hates me now ..

Lil buddy says we gotta go to Papermill and find Tetrax, cuz Tetrax likes me and will make my leg better.

That can't be real, so I know I have to be dreaming all this

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump

I miss Papa and Bananaman..

I'm tired of hiding and being alone...

'cept for pink Buddy.

Lil Buddy says I dun need no ones else.

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump


Cant go that far right now ...

I need to finish sleeping somewhere .. underneath the old trailor next to the bar, where it's nice and cool..

and I can finish this strange dream, and Lil Buddy wont have glowy eyes anymore. 

Ka-thump Ka-thump Ka-thump

(( That was as creepy as I expected. Be interesting to see how a child fares against a malicious AI.

Lonely are the brave...

((She has before (a forum rp) actually and I would more then welcome the mysterious character/writer back for another round. I think sheer dumb luck got her out of it's clutches last time, she was definately in over her head. 

One minute your calm, the next your shooting someone in the face, then your doing your chickendance. If that is not chaos I dont know what is - Aiid

Bump-t bump, Bump-t bump

Hyle changed the music ..or it's still my heart wanting free

It's in a cage, a rib cage and it wants to get out. Nothing should be in cage.. not even my heart.



Bump-t bump, Bump-t bump

In my dream I am crawling through that real bad dry place between Spider Hill and Oasis..

it feels hot like there anyways. I can smell water though.

Boss teached me how to find things I can't see. 


Bump-t bump, Bump-t bump

Alicia used to make me drink carrot juice..I wish I had some now. 

How comes I cant see?

If Boss was here he would chop my leg off.. but I don't think it would taste very good. 


Bump-t bump, Bump-t bump

I can see now.. an I'm inside the carwash..

being wet feels good and puts out the fire on my skin.

Lil Buddy aint happy about something, I don't understand and I don't care.

Needin' to shut up for a while, dun wanna hear so much yappin'

Shut Up Already!

Someone shoulda tolded me soaking in water felt this good.

Am I still 'sleepin or 'wake? 

Ssshhh ..

Hear that? 

Neither do I.

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

( I think it is safe to say Hyle keeps an indirect eye on Canni, But knows direct involvement would be futile..  so she just basically makes sure Cani is fed

I would rather die peacefully in my sleep, like Grandad, than screaming, like his passengers

He released the button on the transceiver to the old, half beaten ham radio, listening to the soft lull of static over the line. A colorful array of wires and salvaged microchips carefully soldered together. He barely understood the diagrams, but he'd managed to tap into the old LifeNet lines a few times through his old Collar, now sitting and gathering dust under a blanket in his oriental themed home, over the hills and far away.

He still had the damn thing and listened to the silence most nights something was on his mind. He was too far out for most signals, but those bearing Kyotan's Brand still knew where the signal boosters were to get through to him from time to time. He used to visit, when he could get away from his new job without getting in trouble.

When he brought in help from outside and exposed LifeNet and the hovel home his child had been living out of and why just having running water was like a religious experience, they had been both impressed and overcome with pity, promising to help in any way they could and prepared to outsource food and means for a better living for as many people as they could. He'd actually had hope.

Then he got shoved against a wall when no one was looking and was told he was owned by those on the outside, to stop beating himself up over what was going on in the canyon and let other people take care of the old soul in a little girl's body. For a little while, he felt good about himself, that help was going to be given where it was needed and he didn't have to worry any more. Everything was finally going to work out. There was going to be a happy ending after all.

And then the man making the promises was transferred to a different department, banned from speaking to anyone he'd previously spoken to again, some kind of covert operation. The relief aid project was suspended, and his job within the facility was terminated. Someone on the food chain didnt support the idea of spending millions on a charity campaign and if they couldn't salvage something useful out of Lifenet, then they weren't interested.

"You were a fine parent, you did the best with what you had."
"She's taking care of herself just fine, isn't she? Let her go."
"You don't need this place any more, and it doesn't need you."

His thumb hovered over the button. A lump of worry still sitting in his gut.

Why cant I just throw this damn thing away.
