  1. Hello all, 

    I am sorry I have been away for so long, I had always promised my self I would never be that guy thats starts something and never finishes it. I have had a rough last couple of years, but now I am ready to get back into. 


    Chapter 1 of Songs of my heart has undergone a massive redo with new scenes and a little bit of rewording. The story is going to go a little different route then it did the first time. Please give ti a reread and let me know what you think. 


    hi Jordn87, glad you stopped by, you have been pretty quiet these last few months. So let me start by wishing you a Happy 31st Birthday, party and all. Make this a year of positive thinking, looking forward and leaving the bad vibes behind you. It may not be easy, few things in life are. But if you keep moving one foot forward and then the next, you will get to where you are going. Which is better than where you were. You have to believe you can and you will. Best wishes to you.


    Take care


  3. Happy Birthday!

  4. How've you been?

  5. I am sorry I fell off the earth the last few weeks, I will miss you my friend and I will never be able to replace the sage advice and friendship you gave me.

       Still grieving and Missing you Dear Friend :heart: You are gone but won't be forgotten, your love pushes thru in the darkest moments your words of wisdom in the greatest times of need... your Friendship lingers like sweet perfume .:kiss:and words of hope in you poems still bloom...! Such pleasure and joy of knowing someone as graceful and Kind I do not deserve yet you chose to share it with all who received it... yes missed, yet not forgotten, yes  I am thankful for the moments you shared ... that can not be bought nor sold but given to remember, like the mist of the sea, or the glimmer of the skies, or the soft cries of a baby, all special and Fresh like you...!!! :kiss::kiss::heart::heart:

    Chapter XXII

    I dont understand where this rule came from because it wasn't how I formatted mine and no one said a thing about it but the couple times I had double spacing issues. All did is remove formatting then pst the story in and just make sure no line breaks were in so that the system could automatically put the spaces in. I am sitting on three stories that I havent even bothered to send to the editor because of the format that is required on the story.
  7. Saw it in a thumbnail, and just had to see the real thing.


    Your avatar is adorable, Jordn87 :D

  11. "MIkeal . . . . . .Mikeal . . . . . . . Mikeal . . . . . . " Mikeal Scrooge slowly sat up and looked around looking for the sound of the voice. It was that exact moment when someone pounded on his office door. Mikeal just about jumped out of his skin, looking up at the clock he noticed it was just about nine pm. Curious as to who would be knocking on his office door at this time of night, Mikeal stood and made his way to the door and whipped it open. Ready to lay into whoever was on the other side, except there was no one there. Sticking his head out Mikeal glanced to his left and then to his right, there was no one in the hallway either. Stepping back Mikeal slammed the door shut, muttering some unkind words under his breath, and turned around to head back to his desk. It was that point that he let a huge scream and took several steps back until he resting against the door. The sight before him could not be real, this was a spirit from a past version of him. Standing there in front of him was a young African American male, somewhere between eighteen and twenty years old. He was decked out in a blue Air Force dress uniform, black polished dress shoes, and a set of ribbons and awards over his left breast pocket. Smiling the young man stepped forward and placed his hand on Mikeal's cheek, the eerie glow from his body lighting up the small office. "It's good to see you again Mikie, but I do not have much time. I am very disappointed in you and your behavior. What happened to my giving and caring lover? Where did the man who would spend a day walking around putting hundred dollar bills into the salvation army buckets so kids could celebrate Christmas? What happened to my man who dressed as Santa Clause and surprised the families at random homeless shelters? Mikeal could see and feel the sadness radiating from the ghost before him. How he hungered for the touch or to be able to touch the man in front of him. The ghost of his pass was not wrong, he had enjoyed doing those little things. What the ghost wasn't realizing, he buried his heart on a cold winter's night five years ago. When the very young man in front of him was slain while serving his fourth tour in Iraq. Eason had loved the service, and if he could save someone from facing the hell of war by volunteering himself, he would gladly do it. What were a couple thousand dollars when you were dating a man willing to risk his life? "Begone spirit, for if you were truly the one I love, you would take me with you! You would know my heart died that day we laid him to rest. My soul died when I held his mom as she sobbed that her only baby was not coming home. Be gone spirit, and do not bother to return. You waste your breath on ears that won't listen." With that Mikeal stepped forward and through the spirit and placed his hands on his desk. He needed something sturdy to hold him up, or what he really wanted was a nice stiff drink. It took him by surprise when he could feel the spirit wrap his arms around him. There was a warmth radiating from the spirit, a warmth that was able to melt little of the iciness that was inside him. Tears began to pour from his eyes, it was hard to be angry at a dead man. Mikeal was finding out that it was even harder to be angry at a spirit. Sadly the warmth pulled away as the spirit stepped back. "I love you, Mikeal! Now to all of eternity, and trust me I never wanted to let you go. Sometimes though the decision to say goodbye isn't ours. I hope you listen to me Mikeal, for there are consequences if you do not. Take care Mikie, and I will always be here!" Slowly the glow faded until the room was plunged into darkness one more time. Mikeal lifted both hands, clenched them into fists, and then slammed them on his desk. Why must he be tortured like this, what was he to do now? It dawned on Mikeal that he must be dreaming, and his irritation began to grow. One thing for sure, he was not going to listen to some stupid dream spirit. Pushing away from the desk he grabs his jacket and leaves the building. The bad thing about winter in Minneapolis was the cold and snow, the good thing was he would not be bothered as everyone with a brain would be inside on a night like this. Briskly he headed down the sidewalk towards the parking lot for downtown, thinking this would of been a good night to use his car service. He was just about to his car when a dirty figure stumbled out of an alleyway and latched onto his arm. Mikeal tried to shrug whoever it was off, but the latched on tighter, Finally, Mikeal was able to place a hand on the person's chest and shove them off. The person was sent stumbling backward and into a pair of garbage cans giving Mikeal the chance to look him over. The man was covered in dirt but still had a very young looking face. He was quite slim and really underdressed for this weather. His clothes appeared to be a very old pair of fatigues. Mikeal's face showed a look of disgust, how dare someone like that touch him? Did this idiot not know who he was? Turning back towards the parking area Mikeal was just about to start walking again when the stranger started to speak. "Please sir, may I bother you for a few dollars? I am fresh out of the military and have no job or home to return to. My ex-took everything and ran while I was overseas. I am cold and hungry, I just need a little help get back on my feet!" Mikeal scoffed and took off at a brisk pace. More filth asking for his money, maybe if they learned how to work and plan they wouldn't be in this situation. Once in his car, Mikeal took a second to check his phone, his face became a puzzled look as he noticed the clock was going backward. Tossing his phone over his shoulder onto the back seat, he blew it off to a defect in the stupid phone. Backing carefully up, he sped out of the lot and back towards his penthouse apartment. His desire for this stupid holiday to be over with growing by the minute.

      Oh god cliffhanger! Its OK I've been building a resistance to them:P

  13. he is an ass isnt he? I am glad you enjoyed this part. I was trying to keep enough similarities to bring up memories of a Christmas Carol while making it my own
  14. Thanks dude amd thanks for your comments the other day I am starting to come out of my funk
  15. One thing that Mikeal Scrooge always enjoyed about the holiday season was the fact families always seemed just a little more willing to spend their money to make sure their car would make it grandma's house. He was quite happy to instruct his employees to take shortcuts or maybe not fill something with the right fluid just so the customer could come back and be charged double. Otherwise, everything about the holiday could go screw itself. Who needed the stupid carols, god awful and ugly trees, food made to feed the hungry and needy, family time, and especially giving presents to someone besides himself. BAH HUMBUG! Lucky for him he had a dedicated assistant manager, one who many people considered his lackey. When Mikeal said jump, Ian asked how high, when Mikeal said you were working every holiday open to close normal pay; Ian would look said but nod yes. The rest of the crew hated Mikeal, he was a tough ass and penny-pinching jerk. Ian though was held in high respect for always being willing to do what was needed around the shop to help the guys. He had also brought many meals in to share with the men. It was also Ian that manages to get all the men off by 5 on Christmas Eve. Home just in time for supper and opening gifts and singing carols Mikeal was busy in his office working on some forms and double checking invoices making sure every penny had been accounted for. No one was taking an extra dime from him. Suddenly the melody of jingle bells could be heard from just outside the shop. Mikeal tried his best to ignore it but it just seemed to get louder and louder. Standing in a huff Mikeal storms towards the window and whips it open. His gaze finding a group of school kids dressed for holidays, some holding signs wishing all a happy holiday and happy new year. Clearing his throat and then leaning out the window, he let the pesky brats have a piece of his mind. "STOP THAT RACKET THIS INSTANT! IF YOU KEEP IT UP I AM CALLING THE POLICE AND YOU ALL WILL SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY IN A JAIL CELL!" With that Mikeal slammed the window so hard his employees downstairs felt the building shake. Glancing up he looked at the clock and saw it was close to 5 PM, no way were these leeches getting overtime and time and half pay off of him. The damn federal government was always after Mikeal and his money. Why couldn't anyone see he just wanted to be left alone to count his stacks of money and check his portfolios. Turning to the door he whipped it open and stepped out looking at his crew of mechanics. "Okay, you lazy lot get the hell out of here! I expect you all to be here and ready to work by 8 am the 26th. Not a minute sooner or later. NOW SCRAM! EXCEPT FOR YOU IAN I NEED YOU HERE TIL 9 TONIGHT!!" With that proclamation the mechanics below scuttled about and left, leaving one very depressed and sad assistant manager. Mikeal turned on his hell and retreated back to the safety of his office and slammed the door shut. He wanted no part of the good wishes and hugs being shared downstairs. Grabbing a stack of papers he began to sort through them when someone began to knock on his door. Mikael had all intentions of ignoring it but the person knocking didn't wait for a response. Instead, in walked a young man, no older than 15. Jerome Scrooge was a brilliant teenager and Mikeal's favorite nephew. Looking up at the young man, Mikeal had to admit he was growing. He had missed out on a lot of his family functions over the years to focus on his business, and he wouldn't change anything. Business always came first, then Mikeal and lastly came family. ‘Merry Christmas Uncle! I just wanted to swing by and let you know you are invited to our house for Christmas Dinner. The dads will be making all of our favorites. We also have couple small gifts for you and you are welcome to bring someone with you." Mikeal's face grew a dark red, he knew, of course, the only reason his family wanted him to attend. They hoped he would buy gifts and groceries, everyone around this damn holiday Slamming his fists on the desk causing his nephew to jump, Mikeal rose to his feet and opened the door. "Get out of this office right this minute young man, I do not want to hear any of that Christmas or holiday bull. If it's so wonderful you go and enjoy it yourselves because you won't get a penny from me!" With a hand on his nephew's back, he gently shoved him out the door and slammed it shut. Shaking his head he moved back to his desk and sat back down. Grabbing the next stack of papers he was just through the first paragraph when his phone started to ring. With a sigh, he grabbed it and lifted it to his ear. "Hello, Mr. Scrooge? This is Tina with Gifts of Joy charity and we were wondering if we could bother for a small donation. We are about twenty dollars short of our goal this Christmas. We provide excell-" Mikeal just about snapped his phone in half his anger was boiling so. No better target than this stupid pesky woman. "Listen to me, mam and listen closely. I will never donate to some stupid charity unless that charity is the Mikeal I Scrooge fund. Now if you will excuse me I have things to do. Merry fucking Christmas and a horrible new year to you!" With that Mikeal slammed the phone down hard on the receiver and let out a yell. Everyone was out for his money today. Turning back to his paperwork he managed to get through few more pages before the next interruption happened. Once again it was a knock on his door, this one very meek and submissive. With a sigh, Mikeal lifted his head and looked at the door. Was it going to some beggar looking for money, another family member wanting him to buy their Christmas or some stupid employee trying to beg off the day after Christmas because they need "Family Time." "WHAT IS IT NOW?!" The door slowly opened and in walked a very meek and mild Ian. His head hung down, his chin resting on his chest. Carefully he entered the office and made his way in front of his boss. Ian Bell was a man in his early fifties, very lanky and scrawny. Somewhere close to six feet and roughly in the hundred and thirty-pound range. Times were tough for the Bell's, but times always seemed rough for most around the holidays. Though Ian and his partner Rudy were going to make the best of it they could. "Sir, may I please leave? I really need tomorrow off as well. Our boy Timmy is coming home from his tour in Iraq and I need to go pick him up. Please, sir, I will do anything you want me to, I just need those days off!" Mikeal just looked at him with disgust. The military, another entity that just enjoyed taking and never giving back. Though he could use this to his advantage, and that's when a little grin spread across his face. "Sure Ian you can have those days off, for a price! Rest of the month after Christmas only half lunches and I expect you first in and last out every day. I want you to cut hours and increase profits. Now get out of my sight and go enjoy this crappy day." Mikeal watched Ian scuttle form his office with a big grin on his face. Numbers ran through Mikeal's head as he leaned back and brought his feet up and on the desk. His hands resting behind his head as he closed his eyes, maybe this Christmas was going to turn better than he planned.
