From the Archives: Wallace on the Run

August 2016. A long time ago.  Let's travel back in time to this... Wallace on the Run Rain gathered in pools reflecting flickering lights from street lamps above.  The storm seemed to go on for hours and showed no sign of letting up soon.  That was comforting to Wallace.  He could hide in the rain. … Continue reading From the Archives: Wallace on the Run

Fortunes from a Pocket Watch

"Beware," warned the old merchant from behind the counter. Jake and Sara exchanged a confused look.  They thought they were simply browsing the aisles of an antique shop while the rain poured down outside.  They were wrong about that if the shopkeep's tone was to be believed.

He set down his drink, a green tea he was drinking to seem more cultured in front of new people but really wanted to complain that it tasted of grass and oregano. "I'm pretty sure you did it on purpose," Amy laughed. "Maybe a … Continue reading Deck and Amy and the Story
