White Light

Warning: Mild Violence

A tongue-in-cheek dark humor piece.

The fluorescent lights were flat white and droned on. And so did he.

“So what truly drives you here?” he asked me.

I chose not to respond. May as well ask me what my 5-year plan is.

“What is currently going through your mind right now?” he asked with some frustration crawling into his throat.

I chose not to say anything. If I am going to be stuck here listening to him, so is he.

Big Bad

What if the villain of your fairy tale was not what he was made out to be? The truth behind the fiction.

Bill “Big Bad” Wolf has been in law-enforcement since the beginning. The moniker “Big Bad” only applies to him if you are a criminal and he has your scent. 

He was a housing inspector in the early days. His first big investigation was to check the safety of the constructions of the Three Little Pigs. The word on the street was that they were not following building code as was evidenced by Mr. Wolf’s investigations; two of their buildings were structurally unsound. The corrupt contractors put up a substantial resistance but through the persistent efforts of Mr. Wolf they were finally brought to justice.
