My exhausted limbs flailed. King Bucket frowned deeply, as I Freckles tumbled down the rather steep stairs. Silly Freckles. King Bucket scoffed. “Foolish Freckles”, said the King, “you are no match for my mighty stairs." The stairs weren't even that cool. Yet there were more than enough steps to teach Freckles a lesson he wouldn't soon forget. 6 was the magic number. 7 was not. Dusting the ground was Nugget, who disliked Freckles.

Funnily enough, though people smiled the smile, they did not laugh. Instead, they had an air of discontentment. Why did they eat eachother if it made everyone so unhappy? Hunger. Hunger was the motivation and boy, was it powerful. Never before had human flesh tasted so incredibly cranberry-like. with tender loins and red flesh.

Your demeanour reminds me of a forlorn oblong sky dark and cold in November. Crip, a snappier word for it than the usual. Why do you torture me with ballons full of icy coffee? balls. Outside serenades of summer song birds contrasts the chilling reality of their morbid existance plummeting past gleefully forelorn gems that glisten like stars. Inside, you stare at me with a disappointment unlike tomorrow. A reflection of our growing realisation that we no longer matter. That we no longer linguistically conduct ourselves freely.

It was a cold and dark evening, nobody was around. I walked towards the dark shadow looming overhead. I heard a voice from behind saying 'allo there, what brings a detective to my territory?' Murder, he said. Yes. Are you sure? Looks like he slipped and fell to me. Onto an axe? Happens all the time around here. We haven't had a murder in years. What about accidents? Tuesday, I think. Mr Salmon, caught a stray arrow in the neck. These things happen, you know. He shrugged. I think he was just bullshitting to be honest. I mean really?
