Feeling depressed this weekend, so I think I'm going to skip this weeks snippet. Come back next week and I will have posted a new one, assuming things go as planned.

Entry 6

Phoenix: The Time Keeper
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

My hands slipped deep into my orange trench coat pockets.  They felt warm as a gust of cool air wafted the breeze about me.  My coat flopped in the wind like the leaves of the autumn trees just down the road in planted rows along the sidewalk.  The air smelled damp with a metallic copper blend; it felt chilled, but I didn’t shiver.
      "I'm afraid you'll have to let me handle this one this time Phoenix, you know what Reinerred would say."  He put his arm about my shoulders and guided me toward his Cherry red Cadillac Eldorado.  I didn’t fight him as I opened the car door and sat in the passenger seat.  I watched as he strode toward the body and I could hear the sirens blaring as a cop car came out from the alleyway. 

Authors Note: I enjoy all the wonderful feedback you all have been giving me each week. It has inspired me to continue this story.  I will keep working on it as long as you keep giving me feedback.  It's just a rough-draft and not the complete version of course, but I hope you wont mind following along as I write it.  I will fix up the errors at a later time.  If anything is confusing, or doesn't seem to fit through these snippets, please let me know so I can fix it at a later date.  Conflicts are inevitably going to occur as I write this.

Also, don't forget you can tweet me @lylathewicked

Entry 5

Phoenix: The Time Keeper
Previous Installments:

He was a dark fellow in an amethyst tie; his eyes were almost as black as the night.  Across his chin was a deep scar he’d gotten from fighting against a drug dealer named Dorango. 
      He was a kind fellow always trying to watch my back, I hated that.  It wasn't that he wasn't a good partner; I just preferred to work alone.  Now he was telling me to drop this case, to just walk away from my red haired beloved surrounded in a pool of her own red wine.
      "You know I’ve been after The Time Keeper since he took out that blonde hooker, what was her name again? Charlotte Chastity I think."  I said as I stood, spitting up some remaining bile. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks installment. Come back for more Phoenix next week!  You can tweet me at Lylathewicked.

Entry 4

All installments:


     “I’ll find you Time Keeper, and I will make you pay for your sins.  You messed up when you took this beauty from the living.”  My voice was cracking, though I hated the weakness.
      I felt a hand upon my shoulder, and I instantly wanted to turn around and punch the person who decided it was a good idea to touch me, but then I heard the voice.  It was hard and deep, a familiar tune.
      “Phoenix.  Why don’t you go on home and let me handle this investigation?”  It was my partner Rasta....
