The Zodiac Killers

Scorpion QueenChapter 6: The Zodiac Killers

Inside, Salome was rubbing her hands together with malicious glee as the drinks were served to the Witch Council. The immortal Egyptian Queen would win this time, she thought. Her proposal was sure to pass the Council, and soon the Bakers would pay…with their pathetic, upstart lives. The spell-casters that formed the Council were all gathered here around their great table in this dark but ornately decorated hall. Their looks were so pretentious, so condescending towards Salome, the vampire thought.

She remembered last week, when they had vetoed her plan to use the power of a glamour spell to infiltrate Zodiac assassins into the Bakers’ midst, and then strike when they least suspected it.

“Outrageous,” someone had declared, “Why should we ever vote for that?”

They hadn’t even given her time for a complete explanation. But now, the drinks were being poured by servants into the goblets at each of their places, and they would soon be changing their minds…Granny’s potions, if used properly, could be very persuasive.

Drake transitions from slave to King

image007Chapter 5: Drake transitions from slave to King

The mustached man nodded to his companions, who held their machetes and torches high as they charged at the two black men. Drake dodged the first swipe, as did Ram. Drake remained cool, calm and collected as he maneuvered around the whirling blade and flame of the yelling young men in front of him. Three were attacking him, and an equal number attacked Ram. Drake knew he could end this fight fast if he could get in close with his fangs, but the men had longer reach with their weapons, and they protected each other well.

Drake saw an opening when one his attackers swung wildly overhand and had to stumble clumsily forward and steady himself. Drake showed his fangs and dove at the man’s neck, but felt an impact and a sharp pain in his shoulder as a machete came down there.

“Ha!” yelled the man.

Drake could feel hot blood running down his chest, but it didn’t slow him as he tripped the man who struck him with a low sweeping kick. He heard Ram scream in pain as his arm was badly burned by one of the torches, which Ram knocked aside, and it fell to the grass and started a fire on the ground. Two of the men took this like a signal to throw their own torches into the slave’s huts, setting them ablaze. Men, women, and children screamed from inside.

A time traveller gives the slaves hope for freedom

Black History TimelineChapter 4: Granny conjures powerful magic to change slavery

The two most prominent slaves that Granny met were named Drake and Big Daddy Ram. Both were dark, large men, tall with wide shoulders. Ram was a bit bigger, and had a beard. Drake lacked any facial hair, and had sharper eyes. He was the more conniving and possibly cruel of the two, though Ram was sure as hell no push over. They both listened thoughtfully to Granny’s talk over dinner, thinking on each and every word she said. Their acceptance of her stories of the future with a black president persuaded the other slaves almost as much as the photographic evidence.

Then, Granny got to the part about her plan for Drake, and the two large men really started to listen. They leaned in close as Granny spoke. Drake of course, being a vampire, had the special moonlight ring and cane from Granny, allowing him to be outside in direct sunlight. He held a powerful presence over the others, who thought him blessed or cursed, or at least in some way divinely chosen for a great purpose. Granny confirmed such thinking when she explained the basics of her plan for Drake and for her people:

“You, Drake. Yes, I know your name well. You will play the most important part in things to come, and I say that boldly now for everyone to hear!”

Salome sends Granny back in time to Slavery

Chapter 3: Granny time travels to slavery

Witch - ColorGranny breathed in the warm and humid Louisiana air. It smelled clean and full of life. The air anywhere in the rural United States in 1858 was clean, free of the toxic pollutants that would build up over the course of the next century and a half. She knew some of the major industrial cities, filled with coal-powered machinery, would be different.

But for now, she was just walking the Louisiana road, and her sense of purpose made her walk tall and look straight ahead. The road itself was dirt of course, a bit moist, but not muddy today. It wasn’t hurricane season just yet. Granny’s boot-clad feet made soft indents into the rich soil. Tall, thick, and willowy trees grew up from the rich soil on either side of the road, forming a curtain around the elderly black woman’s path. Birds chirped and cawed from all-around. Bullfrogs and crickets started up their chorus as late afternoon began to turn to early evening. It wasn’t much farther, Granny knew, she would be to her destination before dark.

The trees thinned and then faded away as she reached the large clearing of property that formed the plantation where Granny’s slave family worked for the profit of their white owners. Granny could see the lights from the windows of the great and luxurious plantation house, with its white columns. Rice, cotton, and tobacco fields stretched far around the area. Granny looked around cautiously: she needed desperately to avoid detection by any overseers, guards, or even just wandering normal white folk. Southern American society at this time embraced racial slavery as the absolute law of the land, almost like a religion. Even if most white Southerners didn’t own slaves, they sure as hell didn’t want blacks living free, upsetting the “natural” order of things. But it seemed quiet on the plantation tonight. No sound but the crickets, and the bullfrogs back behind her.

Election 2016 vote for Drake on the Vampire ticket! Wait! He went back in time and stole it!

Occult Women

Chapter 2 Drake charms the witches

The news was awash with stories of members of the US military suddenly turning on their fellows in a manner similar to the zombies that most people knew from movies and TV. In barracks, in parade fields, in training grounds, and on airfields, groups of moaning, deranged soldiers suddenly grabbed and bit into the remaining “normal” personnel. Public concern was in an uproar of hysteria. TV pundits speculated endlessly on the cause of the outbreaks, how much it was the president’s fault, and what danger the outbreaks posed to the general public. America’s enemies celebrated, and America’s allies quaked with fear, especially just to the north and south in Canada and Mexico.

But Vice President Drake brought good news to his live news conference. He looked as handsome, brave, and sharp as ever, in his black suit and red tie, with his hair neatly combed and gelled. He spoke to the public from an undisclosed location in Hawaii. It was night-time there, and the Vice President stood outside, with many electric lights shining on him and his lectern.

“My fellow Americans,” he began, in his calm, deep, voice, “For the past two days, I have shared your concern, and, I wholly admit, fear, over the recent violence and chaos on our nation’s military bases. Many of our service members, enlisted and officers alike, have fallen victim to whatever infection or mass-psychosis this is. Many more of our brave men and women in uniform have fallen victim to these savage, cannibalistic attacks.” Drake gave a dramatic pause before continuing, knowing he had the nation’s full attention. The President had apparently been trying to keep the matter secret, and had made no public address yet.

Chapter 1: Yesterday, Kansas Councilman, today, Vice President, tomorrow, King of this world

“Come on boy, step up, we don’t got all day!” barked the U.S. Army doctor, a squat black man wearing the same jungle-camo fatigues as all the soldiers in line, but with a caduceus patch and a stethoscope to denote his status.

Private First Class Tim Davis tensed up as he stepped towards the doctor. Tim had always hated needles, hated them ever since he was a little kid getting his childhood vaccines back in New York. Army training and a tour of duty in Afghanistan hadn’t made him any less wary of the long, thick needle the nearby nurse thrust to the doctor’s hand without a glance.Zombie Soldier Blood

The doctor sighed. “Come on, roll up your sleeve private, left or right, this’ll be quick n painless.” A couple of Tim’s buddies behind him in line snickered, but Tim complied.

He looked away, down at his boot, as he felt the nasty little pinch of the needle penetrating the skin on his left arm, into his brachial artery. He knew the vaccine was necessary, for the tropical diseases they had down in central Africa (oh God, did they have Ebola there too?!) where the latest Islamist threat had arisen. But he always couldn’t help but feel he’d been violated, on some basic primal level, way back in the “reptilian” part of his brain, even as he consciously knew the value of modern medicine…

Coming soon to Amazon and Audible: The Vampire Dancer Saga Part 4

Long, long ago, back in the days when the world was new and magic ran wild, there existed a kingdom by the name of Kaw. This Kaw was no ordinary kingdom: it was ruled by Queen Leanna, the magical peacock being, who could turn into a human form one time each month, during the full moon. Leanna ruled her kingdom wisely and also took pride in raising her daughter chicks in the proper ways to catch worms. These daughters were unbelievably precious to their mother, and each unique. One of them, Tam, was not a bird but rather a flying scorpion, with a brilliantly shiny shell, a sharp stinger, and fearsome claws. Sherry was a black swan, who was as graceful swimming atop the clear waters of the kingdom as she was soaring through the air. Kandy was a parrot, one of the most clever sorts of birds. And Gia, like her mother, was an elegant and proud peacock, especially blessed with the powers of a witch. The most powerful of Gia’s spells was the one known as Faint of Heart. If Gia’s could touch her flesh to that of someone else, she could use this spell to rob the victim of all convictions, courage, and willpower. Gia quickly became the favorite and most powerful of her mother’s chicks. Her natural talent for magic, combined with her ferocious devotion to learning and mastering it, made her a powerful and seductive witch. She gained the ability to remain in a human form for as long as she wished.

Together, let’s save the Constantine TV Show, Friday April 24th!

Constantine1How many times has your favorite TV show been near the cancellation axe and you wanted the show to be saved?

I have many shows that I wish could have been saved, such as Dracula, Angel, The Tomorrow People, Star Crossed, The Secret Circle, Dallas reboot, Super Fun Night, Raising Hope, Sarah Connor Terminator, The Dollhouse, Firefly!Cast

I could go on an on.  Constantine reminds me of Supernatural, gone wild.  You have the Angel character, a mystic, bad-ass nun, demons trying to get babies!  Weird, right?

I’m so glad that NBC is giving Constantine one last chance to get viewers.  So if you have not had a chance to check out this great show and awesome companion to Grimm, then please join the Constantine streaming event on NBC, Hulu, & VOD.

Constantine6Constantine8

What’s for dinner tonight? Meatloaf!

WP_000378Growing up, my Mom always baked meatloaf in the oven.  It was a traditional meatloaf with ground beef and cubed toast.  My Aunt Forestine kicked it up a notch by adding cheese or using sausage with beef.

So for many years I baked my meatloaf like my Mom in the oven.  As I began collecting slow cookers, I had the courage to try meatloaf in a slow cooker.

Meatloaf April 11 2015 008It was a good choice.  Even though I miss the “brown” edges from an oven, the slow cooker has an advantage to where you can cook the entire meal in one pot.

So I put the veggies on the bottom of the crock pot.  Use whatever your family likes, for example carrots and potatoes diced, frozen vegetables, etc.  The veggies end up with so much flavor and sometimes steal the show from the meatloaf.  The veggies are a bit greasy from the meat on top, but still very tasty.  Optional, you Meatloaf April 11 2015 017can also use the slow cooker lifting pan as pictures below left, for separation.

With some recipes, I don’t like to experiment.  For example, I try to cook my Fritters the same way, instead of adding too many variations.  When I cook scrambled eggs, I get bored and sometimes like to try a a different cheese or use buttermilk or sour cream.

The meatloaf that I am cooking for dinner tonight has some new WP_000368ingredients.  I did not have any fresh or canned carrots, so I used frozen mixed vegetables instead.  I used 5 potatoes, diced and added some jalapeno peppers to the veggies and meat mixture for some heat.

Did you notice the gloves in the photos?  The gloves are less than $2 for 5 sets and are really handy for chopping onions or mixing meatloaf.  Garlic, put cloves in a plastic bag and crush them with a hammer.

Meatloaf April 11 2015 021It’s nice to kick it up a notch like Aunt Forestine and try something new with a recipe.  I how this one inspires you for the next time you desire Meatloaf.

Do you remember where you lived?

Wayne AveI was thinking about how much junk I have accumulated from my houses in all these years and where did it come from.  Then realized, I don’t remember every place that I have lived.

Some younger people may have only lived in less than 5 houses, parent’s home, dorm, apartment, etc.

But being older, means that you have lived in several homes.

So I tried my best to recap every place I’ve lived, permanent addresses, where the mail was changed.

  1. Current address, Wayne Avenue
  2. East 75th
  3. East 81st
  4. East 76th
  5. East 42nd
  6. 44th Street
  7. 45th Street
  8. Townhouse VG
  9. 2 Bdrm VG
  10. 1 Bdrm VG
  11. East 76th
  12. Montgall, with Aunt
  13. College Dorm, different city
  14. Montgall, with Dad
  15. East 76th
  16. Woodland
  17. 10th Street
  18. Flora
  19. 10th Street
  20. Wayne Miner
  21. Not sure where I lived when I was born?

ExteriorI’m not even sure if that list is accurate.  I will need to check with my siblings, they may remember more

My favorite place of all is my current home on Wayne.  It is a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath 2248 Square foot center hall Colonial built in 1923.  I hope I live to see it’s 100th anniversary.  I love Colonial homes and the 3 homes I have purchased have all been Colonial style.  And my mom’s house on East 76th was also Colonial style.

An older home means lots of projects.  And I LOVE home June 18 2013 038projects.  So far, I have had all of the original plumbing replaced, I have installed 9 new outdoor lights, 2 new outdoor receptacle sockets, 2 new outdoor faucets, replaced most of the light plate switches, the ceiling light in the foyer, 3 kitchen lights that came from my house on East 75th.

And I am not done.  I have one more matching ceiling light to install on my deck off the master bedroom.  I want to do a deck or patio off the French doors leading from the Sunroom.  Also replace the garage doors and fence.  I might tackle the kitchen one day and add granite, a backsplash and paint or replace cabinets.

It may seem like a lot of projects, but in the end, it’s my favorite location and I love the layout of the home.  Two things you can’t change:  the location and home layout/structure.
