Phoenix: The Time Keeper
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.
