|Welcome to the LeyLines fangroup!|
Pakku's guest by DraxennHow I love things neat and tidy
For cleanliness to surround me
Items stacked upon my shelves
All have small homes for themselves.
See my ledgers? All in order.
Four per year, one each quarter.
Alphabetized are the rest
Peruse them please, be my guest.
But something that you must remember
Birds will seldom lose a feather
Without rhyme or reason why
Details don't escape my eye.
I'll know if things are out of place
So won't you please respect my space!
Put things back where they belong
And I am sure we'll get along.
Now please sit down and have a drink
Prepare your quill and warm your ink.
And I will share a quick story
Of when some pirates tried to kill me.
No Nice GirlsWhoever said "first impressions lie" was an idiot. First impressions are the only reason I've gotten as far in the business as I have.
Mizha didn't look like an agent. She looked like Daddy's princess, fresh out of high school. Her hair was too long and too blonde, and she wore the kind of suit tailored to look less expensive than it is. If she'd been wearing heels, I might have handed in my badge right then and there.
But she wasn't, so I settled for glowering at her. She had a shabby cardboard box in her arms, which she shifted to one hip so she could knock on my door. As if I couldn't see her through the glass walls of my officeand who designs an office with glass walls? I nodded at her through the glass. She met my eyes, hesitated, and opened the door. "Are youKali?"
"Sign's on the door, sweet cheeks," I said, propping my feet on the desk. "And you must be Mizha."
She bit her lip. "That's me," she said quietly. "It's, um, it's nice to meet you. I guess we're going to be
Sugar-sweetAfter my mother killed herself, Mizha locked herself in her room for three days. I found out later she went out through the window, bought a dime bag of pot, and smoked it in a sitting. She also marathoned Netflix's entire cache of Mythbusters.
I tried to become the primary chef in my house, since Mom was a homemaker, but unfortunately, I can't cook anything but souffles (go figure). I was trying to cook something to coax out Mizha, but everything, from scrambled eggs to brownies, turned into a black pancake. I ate a lot of sandwiches and spaghetti that week.
And my dad turned into a character from a Lifetime movie. By which I mean he adopted a troubled black teenager, apparently thinking we would learn a valuable life lesson. Or maybe he wanted to throw money at something until he felt better.
He told me while I was constructing the most epic peanut butter, banana, and marshmallow fluff sandwich in the history of creation. He sat down at the dinner table
My Fish DreamI was submerged in the ocean, surrounded by a swirl of fish. All sizes, all colors, darting in circles around me. They were swimming so fast, and I was running out of air. They bumped and jostled me in the water, and it felt like all my energy was just going into holding my breath and treading water. I would never make it back up to the surface.
I did what I feared. I took a deep breath, and every part of me started filling up with water. There was heaviness at my sides, in my legs, in my neck. I absorbed the water, and drifted down so far. When my back nestled gently into the bed of the ocean, I looked up and saw the surface, and all the silhouettes of fish.
And from this distance, I could see that some of the fish were tiny, voracious piranhas, and not fish I would want to swim with at all. Some of them were dolphins and friendly fish. But it was only from the bottom I could see them as individual fish, and not the massive cloud that surrounded and overwhelmed me.
I knew now.

A Word from the Author
I have never dared to have a dream before, but I have found that dreams are something that you cannot ignore. They bubble up from your heart and burst into action and energy and hope, and if you are very, very lucky, others will support you and share in your dream. My dream is to one day make stories for a living. LeyLines is part of that, and by being here, participating in the community, and sharing LL with your friends and family, you have become a part of my dream. Thank you for your support, kindness, and generosity. What more could a dreamer ask for?
