Part Of A Short Story


New Member
So, this is what I have so far of this story that I'm writing about my fictional organization, the Department of Paranormal Research. They are based in the fictional town of Havenwood, PA, and do exactly what their name implies, along with taking insane bounty hunters and such into custody.
That was really just the Cliffs Notes version of their jobs, but don't worry about that, it's not much that you need to know to read this. This story is entitled "Where Were You When Maria Lipton Escaped?" and is about the escape of their most prized prisoner, crazed bounty hunter Maria Lipton. So, without further ado, here you have it.

"Oh, this is REDICULOUS!" Copper-haired Cillian Hume flew furiously down the hallway, towards the office of Miles Linus, Squad A's cynical leader. Once the tall, rail-thin man reached the door, he cleared his throat, straightened his immaculately ironed button-down shirt, and burst into the room.
Upon the sudden noise, Miles's pitch-black head of hair shot up from his desk, making it apparent that he had been asleep atop the large pile of unfinished paperwork that sat in front of him. The shorter, and obviously more laid-back, man wore an Underarmor shirt the same dark color as his hair, and a pair of skin-tight jeans.
"Wha' d'you want, Cillian?" He slurred, rubbing his eyes as the other man opened the blinds, letting a bright ray of afternoon light into the room.
"I WANT you to actually FINISH a report for once!" Cillian retorted, sitting irritatedly in the chair parked in front of Miles's desk.
"Well, you're the Head of Internal Affairs, you take care of the reports. Jacob doesn't mind." Miles snarked back, naming the Department's easy-going president. Without another word, the redhead slid a report form that had been covered in crayon doodles of bunnies, rainbows and stars over to him. The squad leader looked at his superior, and smirked to find that a vein was angrily and steadily throbbing in his forehead.
"Ah. I take it you found the report Evana filled out." Miles had gotten the siren to fill out his paperwork for the day, being fully aware that the girl had the mental capacity of a ten year old, and the attention span of a three year old with ADD. The higher-ups, obviously, were not amused.
"I hope you know, I'm taking this matter straight to Jacob, along with certain other complaints many have about your team."
"What, that we harass the trainees? EVERYONE does that! Lighten up, man!" Miles's smirk grew, and Cillian looked about ready to slap him.
And that was when the power went out.
"Well, this just puts the icing on the cake."

As always, feedback is appreciated!

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
