Our Faithful Narrator

Of all the stories Sam has chased, none compared to when he was led to the KNOCK KNOCK CLUB in search of the missing Mayor. That was when the true dirty face of the city began to reveal itself.

0109: Interview with tawny mcinney

A woman, middle aged, frizzy haired and full figured is brought before me. She is smiling despite her surroundings. She has an unlit cigarette in her hand. She knows she’s not allowed to smoke in the office but she clutches it for comfort. Behind that smile is perhaps a little nervousness.

Where you visiting from?

When times got tough for Tabitha she could always run to the Knock Knock club. This was different though. She couldn’t let her aunt know. She wasn’t ready to talk about what happened.

Setting the Stage

When the bombs rained in and the shooting began the curtains closed for good.

Trouble is Brewing

It was a simple moment in life but it is those simple moments that affect us the most. Sure the mug was old, worn and chipped but to rid of it would be to forget those laughs and giggles ever happened.

Fixing Broken Things

I’m not the only kid who ever thought about running away from home, you know. But I can bet that there aren’t many who thought about it as much as I did. I was stopped so many times, brought back to the start. They couldn’t hold me forever.
