  1. - + A Perfect Confluence of Events Chapter 19 By Dabeagle email I woke to the sound of the television to find Emily sitting on the carpet with a bowl of cereal and watching the TV. “Oh no, Ms. Thing,” Keith said while wagging his finger. “You get that bowl back to the table.” “You're not my dad,” she said as she petulantly stayed in place. “I'll be your mommy dearest soon enough, sweetheart. Now move it,” Keith said and Emily huffed as she got up and carried her bowl to the table. Keith saw me awake and rolled his eyes before going back to the kitchen. I adjus

  2. Oh, thank heavens Milo and Trek rescued me from Nash. Well, Beckett helped by distracting him. While Beckett was busy getting Nash to help him get caramel tarts from the storage cooler that Cookie had set aside just for us we escaped out the outside staff door. I love that woman. Honestly, I was torn between running and eating those tarts. As soon as we were able to get out, they pestered me wanting to know what happened after I had stormed into the Alphas office. They eventually gave in when I refused to spill my guts to them, and they suggested we go for a run. Beats sitting around stewing i

  3. I was also busy at the Perth Zoo, since I am studying Zoology as well, and it would be just seven weeks before I am home again for the 4 day Easter long weekend, in Mid April, which are also the school holidays for my siblings. A few days after settling back into my studies, I sent an email to Marcus. “G’day mate, hope all is well with you. As you have probably seen in the media, we are now open to the public and for the first two days we had over 600 vehicles pass through our gates. This is still in the thoughts and planning stages at the moment, but if you are interested, I would l

  4. Compressed earth crunched under Sawyer Thomas’s shoes as he ran down the path. The rhythm of his footfalls harmonized with his pulse and breathing pattern, creating the closest thing to nirvana he knew. The harder he pushed, the more serene he became. The paths were well laid out, not overly hardened with wear, bordered with thick foliage, blocking out the rest of the regular world. Sawyer needed the diversion. It gave him focus and at times grounded his sanity. Fitness had become his daily addiction. He would run in the mornings and spend most evenings at the gym, which was surprising

  5. Last month’s installment of “Ask An Author” was one of the most popular ever based on the number of comments from readers. Not sure we can match the response, but this month’s question is just as fascinating. Let’s see what some of the Author/editors on Gay Authors have to say. Participants were selected by the member asking the question, and they're featured in alphabetical order. ҉҉҉҉҉ Amateur writing can have some differences, and no one is perfect. As many of us on GA are, I am an author as well as an editor of others' work. I'm wondering if editing has affected how you enjo

  6. Our mornings became routine. Our weeks became routine, Monday being the exception. Wednesday and Thursday, we shopped for the boat. At lunch, we asked Stella to prepare five corned beef and five pastrami sandwiches. We already decided on microwave muffins for breakfast. We also took extra eggs, bread, and frozen sausages. Glen wanted turkey sausages. Without Glen noticing, I picked up two boxes of vegetarian sausages. Friday, I took the ice chest with us when we went to work. Stella had our sandwiches ready. I placed the sandwiches in the ice chest, stopped and bought ice at a local ga

  7. Morning did come early. It felt like Glen just settled in my arms when the horn sounded. He jumped and almost fell out of bed. Between the need to get moving and having to empty our bladders, we ran up to the deck naked, shorts in hand. Standing at the stern, we watered the ocean. Pulling on our shorts, Ron and Nicky joined us. “Okay guys, let’s get the nets up, then we can eat.” Ron and I took the port net while Glen told Nicky what they were going to do. “Don’t forget the tuna and lobsters,” Glen showed Nicky the tins, “Tuna go in here, and the lobster goes in the ice chest,” handing

  8. The last time I’d seen that hand, iron links had held me down, my body forced to the ground and my head bowed. My horn had been severed and so much had been lost to me. Now it made sense. This human was wanted through many realms. He’d stolen many treasures, ransoming them back to their owners—if he didn’t keep them outright to sell to higher bidders. Or gain power from them himself. Because that was his goal. Power. In all its forms. The ultimate goal: To be the most powerful singular person in the entire world. His poisonous words had echoed in my ears as he crowed that he’d s

  9. “So, still not a fan of weddings?” Ryan puts his arm around Jasper’s shoulders and whispers in his ear. Jasper smiles and leans into Ryan a little more, the champagne had gone to his head pretty fast so he was feeling light headed and affectionate, though fully aware of this. “Mm, it was a bit sweet. It did evoke some form of emotion I guess.” Jasper turns to him and slips his arms around Ryan’s neck. The two start slow dancing, way out of time to the upbeat music that was playing but they were in their own bubble. They both felt as though the night was ending too fast and they hadn’t

  10. Marshal, Sarah, and her family accompanied Ethan, Aiden, and Karissa to the airport. The security teams for the alphas spread out as Cody checked the aircraft. Wade and Thaddeus arrived as the sweep was concluded. “We’ll be back soon to officially start our work. Alpha Stockdale and the Lycan Council have loaned us some of their people to recover the money Levi’s family stole from the pack.” Aiden extended his hand to Marshal before turning towards the two betas. “As we discussed, we’d like things run in the way you originally planned when you took your jobs as enforcers.

  11. In the old days, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the way to keep in touch long-distance was by something called letters. They were written by hand on sheets of pulped wood using a stylus that contained either graphite (erasable and less permanent) or ink (more permanent but less convenient if you made a lot of mistakes). The good news is that letters were random access, so you could instantly go to your favorite part and re-read it whenever you wanted.

  12. Out of all the excellent chapters so far in this story this is by far my favorite.Yeah it sucks that Cole has to be isolated and Drew misses him but to see the support of his family was truly heartwarming.It first started when Alessia came to him in that lonely house.I think only she could have gotten through to him and she said all the right things perfectly.After bringing Drew home for dinner Teo hugged him and then Mrs.P hugged him Drew said he was a weakling for crying but not as much as a weakling as I was(Maybe I cried maybe I didn't I'm not saying).That was a very important moment for D

Dropped Mom at the hospital, wait half an hour before she could access her room, went to the mall to order shoes for dad, to the phone shop to have my tablet battery change and finally grocery shopping. So yeah I totally deserve the big beef prime rib that fell into my shopping cart and the bake potatoes to go with it - of course

  19. I would think that if you avoided posting photos (which might include geolocation data), social media might be a way to communicate. I use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to disguise my location from the government – my VPN also blocks Facebook and Google tracking. I found a deal for lifetime service (as long as they remain in business that is) – if I get more than a couple years out of the deal, I’m way ahead. Nobody needs to know my browsing history. Stores that try to automatically figure out my location are always wrong. Usually, the city is the one where my VPN has its equi

  20. "Your mother and grandfather are completely set against who you are, and who I am. They didn't used to be so bad, but the last few years there have been a lot of people echoing things that they want to hear, and they got closer and more involved with those people. I have no idea how far they will go." Interesting how the law-and-order types feel free to disobey the law when it suits their own purposes. . . . ☹️

  21. I think one of my favorite things about this story is how Dabeagle keeps us on our toes with his character development. Mr P goes from being the apparent good parent to being revealed as a weak, somewhat selfish guy in the background. Keith has grown from being standoffish and reserved to being a fierce protector,one of the boys biggest advocats, and someone I want to be friends with. And now, Mrs. P has done a 180. She is stepping up and doing the right things. I love the hug! I am so involved in these characters. They have so much depth. Well done Dabeagle! You are a master at ma

But thou and I are one in kind, As moulded like in Nature's mint; And hill and wood and field did print The same sweet forms in either mind. For us the same cold streamlet curled Through all his eddying coves, the same All winds that roam the twilight came In whispers of the beauteous world.

  28. Mr Rockwell is proof that all the adults in this story are not completely useless. (Does he look anything at all like Sam Rockwell in Lawn Dogs? That’s the movie where Sam stops his pickup on a road on top of a small dam, blocks traffic on the narrow two-lane road, strips naked, dives into the lake, climbs out and comes back to his truck before driving off.)

  32. Sometimes teachers can be so cool! It was a tough chapter. I feel for Cole and Drew, but I really feel Cole's dad's fear. I know they are newly in love, but I am a bit surprised they are not more understanding of Dad's worry. Of course it has been a LONG time since I was a teenager in love (possible song lyric? 🤭). Thanks for more of this great story!

  34. Ugh... it's going to be a long night. We had severe thunderstorms just roll through with heavy downpours. Apparently there's lots of tree limbs down and flooding. My sump pump is going off constantly. Unfortunately, it's because of my foundation issues. Water is pouring in at the corner by the sump pump. I went outside to check the line, and everything's working properly. The side of the house is flooded, so that water is going to just keep pouring in. There's nothing I can do about it. So tomorrow I'll have to call the engineer and get the repairs scheduled. I don't think it can wait

  35. Chapter 1 Nighttime fell like a bomb. Spencer finished his meal in the quiet of his car and took a deep breath. The day had been overwhelming, like the last few weeks, and he needed the silence. He crumpled the trash and discarded the bag on the passenger’s seat. McDonald’s was his least-favorite fast food, but it was on the way to the graveyard. He got out of the car, locking it with his key fob and rubbed his temples for a moment. Another headache was the last thing he needed, but it had been that way for the last few months. Sighing, he Spencer walked to the path he kne

  36. Chapter 3: ~Save Them~ “…What’s going on, here?” I heard, Ms. Silverman, my home room teacher, break the silence and tension of the four of us standing in front of one another as the three boys pinned me to the brick wall outside on school grounds in front of a bunch of other children. With fake innocence in his eyebrows, Jesse immediately replied “Ooh! We were just showing Billy where he can eat, outside, if he wants to at lunch. You know? It can get preeeeetttyy hot in that lunchroom for us students, sometimes, you know?” He said with such a fake smile & emphasis in his wor

  37. Acrid with a touch of carbon and sulfur, burnt rubber carried its oily scent into the air. Fresh skid marks marred the asphalt, highlighted by the harsh glow of the full moon, drawing an unmistakeable path to the red taillights shining in the night. An abandoned metal beast along the side of the quiet country road. Climbing out of his piano black Ford F-150, Jimmy Coutreau crept closer, keeping a firm grip on his loaded sidearm. Peering inside the driver’s side wide open door, the overhead light dimly showcased the empty interior. Local radio banter overlapped the car’s annoying seatbelt c

Cole's dad will not be happy but what he doesn't know will not hurt him!! Just how long is he planning to keep Cole in isolation??? It about time for that perfect confluence of events again!!! Great story Dabeagle also glad to hear Jake is still on the mend!

  46. I totally get what the authors are saying. As @Thorn Wilde said, I wish I had an 'editing off' button as well. While I enjoy editing for the most part, as far as sitting down and enjoying a good read, it has become way more difficult. Like @Mann Ramblings, I begin rewriting sentences as I read, and I find myself getting frustrated at times... as much at myself as at the author. Fortunately, there are a lot of well written stories on GA that can grab my attention and hold it. Even so, I expect reading is forever changed for me. And, like @Valkyrie, I too cringe when reading my earlier writing.

  47. So lucky me... the town I live in got the brunt of the storm last night. Two inches of rain in one hour! No wonder everything's flooded. This morning wasn't too bad. I think it ended up skirting us, thank goodness. It's only drizzling now. I'll be making some phone calls today to get an engineer out to tell me what exactly needs to be done.

  48. I hope Cole's isolation is temporary, but given the craziness of his mother and grandfather, even when the custody battle is over in the courts, I do not trust them to obey laws. They seem like people who believe themselves above the law. I do not see things ending well until grandfather is in jail for an extended stretch.
