“angry dragon” by bsp

...the chat room community was alive with people that evening...sharing their day...their loves...their hates...who has a job...and who is lookin for a job...some flirting and some omg's....but mostly in fun...

...then from his den of hell the angry dragon swooped in...seeking victims to carry to his lair...maker of rules...defender of whatever...evil doer or seeker of justice...other trolls disappeared...the room grew quiet with respect....only the dragon was allowed to text in caps...and no one wanted to incur his fury n wrath...

...who lurked behind the avatar with the red eyes...some say a hacker with friends in dark places...other suggested evil powers.....just then the door to his den opened.....”ok marvin ...turn that off...it's a school day tomorrow”...”ok mom”

    


“the jazz bar” by bsp

the unexpected rain seemed to come from nowhere...so I ducked into a bar without noticing the closed sign on the door...a woman's voice came out of the nearly dark corner....”sorry we’re closed for repairs”.....i turned toward the door...and she added....”but you can wait til the rain slows a bit...if ya would like?”...she was sitting alone at a round table....a candle gave glow to her sculpted features and the flashes of lightning from the window created a silhouette of her thick raven hair which was pulled up and tied...

a pianist softly played jazz....a woman shared his bench and weed....”sit down...would you like a drink?”...”yes that would be nice....do you have rum & coke...no ice?”...the woman at the piano said....”i'll get it” and moved to the bar...she sat the drink on the table without looking at me...and went back to the piano...

a large man with a chest like a refrigerator appeared from the back room and approached the table..”looks like the rain slowed” he said with the unreadable face of a gambler....”how much for the drink?” I asked as I reached for my wallet...”it's on the house” he said as he loomed over the table...casting a large shadow on the table and my short lived fantasy....

the streets and sidewalks were wet from the rain....the cabs were busy...the city was alive...and the night was young....
