Dress Code

As the items floated up the stairs, the shirt swung a sleeve towards the leggings’ butt, landing an unseen hand with a solid smack.

“Hey!” the leggings said. “I thought it was the scarf you wanted to get to know better.”

“I do,” the shirt said, “but it wasn’t the scarf doing all that wiggling and moaning back there…” Continue reading

Plane Crash (4/?)

Mary Prankster: “I just got word that a skeptic has just ‘landed’ in our fair realm. He’s an ebook critic from some upstart website, and when he learned about Subreality he dismissed it as some elaborate hoax that his friends … Continue reading

Chapter 10: A New Relationship

I also noticed how her pink blouse and gray skirt hugged her figure.

“Mister Drake,â€Â? she said, “I’m making good progress on organizing your files.â€Â? At that moment she took her hands out of the drawer and I saw into her hollow sleeves. Continue reading

Chapter 9: Face to Face

She smiled, and the smile expanded into what would have been a grin.

“Oh damn!â€� I said. Her face was like a hollow mask. While she had cleverly coated her face in talcum powder and applied lipstick to her lips, she had no teeth. She looked like a hollow mask with red lips. Continue reading

Chapter 8: An Unseen Visitor

I was about two steps away from the door I heard someone step back away from me. In a flash, I lunged. I was hopping to grab the person but I only managed to slap some bare skin. The figure pushed me aside, seeming to become momentarily off balance in the process, then ran toward the stairs. I followed the sound of feet pounding down the wooden stairs and at the bottom noticed the door fly open by itself. Continue reading

Chapter 7: Leather and Steel

As she spoke she slowly pulled at the fingers of her glove then stripped it off. At that moment I thought of Natalie.
“I’m actually here to ask him some questions about I case I’ve taken for someone else.â€� I said.
She was starting to pull off the other glove, more slowly this time. I then realized that I was staring and looked back at her face. She was smiling with intense pleasure.
“Wonderful thing, leather.â€� She said, “It stimulates all the senses. Sight, sound, touch, scent. Don’t you agree?â€� Continue reading

Chapter 6: Glamorous Motives and Fashionable Threats

“Well just last Monday she said that Natalie ought to ‘have her face erased’. But I’m sure she didn’t mean it like in the movies, being ‘rubbed out’ and all that. She probably would have destroyed some negatives or something.â€� Continue reading

Chapter 5: The Diagnosis — a Clear Case of Transparency

As I walked back to my office I thought about an angle that can never be ignored. In every case I have to consider the possibility that a client is not what they pretend to be. Although I had a good instinct for such things and felt rather confident about Miss Taylor’s sincerity I had to consider all possibilities. In some cases I’d even be set up. Sometimes people figure a private investigator makes a great alibi or can mislead the police like a herring throwing bloodhounds off a scent. Continue reading

Chapter 4: The Scene of the Incident

She then turned to face me and I almost startled. The white veil she was presently wearing was not nearly as thick as the black one I had first seen her in. And with the light coming through the window I clearly saw an empty hat on that woman. I thought to comment then thought better. I felt like a mutt caught in traffic, not knowing where to turn and sensing that every direction was the wrong direction. Continue reading
