    I love telling short stories. When I was younger and used to walk to school with my little bros I would tell them stores i made up on the way to school. I want to someday write a publish a book. But i can never finish my stories. :<
    Here is something I wrote a few moths ago.

    The Story of DD Devious Detective
    ===============================
    [​IMG]


    It was a dark and stormy afternoon. The clouds covered what was left of the sun and released their tears of sorrow upon the land. Why were they sad? I didn't know but it was certain it must be something to cry for. I lifted the collar of my coat to cover my neck from the cold pouring water. At last there it was. My office. A nice small cozy office. It was not much but a great shelter from the rain.
    Once inside I made myself at home. I stared at the phone on my dusty old desk. As if I expected it to ring. I had not paid my phone bill since I can remember. That phone was there for show only.
    I looked only too see the umbrella that had not protected me from the rain. What a traitor!


    I sat down on my green colored artificial leather seat. Either that or it was leather from some prehistoric carnivorous beast. I was cold. There was a pot of coffee waiting for me. My new best friend... unlike the Umbrella.

    Suddenly the lights went out... Had I forgotten to pay the electric bill?.... Perhaps I had. Suddenly I was startled by a flash of light. At first i imagined it to be from the sad clouds crying outside but no! This was inside. Something was terribly wrong. And I confirmed it when i tried to crawl back out of my desk.. and I was not under it.. or in my lovely cozy office.

    I was lost in some other dimension perhaps. I had only on one occasion read about it in a science fiction novel. I pondered if perhaps i had fallen asleep while reading the book. That is absolutely absurd you finished reading that and burned the book because it was scary. No you are not afraid of anything. especially a not scary book about other dimensions and space aliens...

    You slap yourself just to make sure.. yes this is not a dream at all. You are fine with it..you were going to get your office foreclosed anyway. Nowadays no one wants a well dressed public gumshoe tracking villains. You remove the dust from your nice suit and fancy green hat and start walking in this strange land.

    This strange was defiantly nothing like the unforsaken city you live in at all. As a Gumshoe there is nothing to do but investigate. I tipped my fancy green hat as if greeting a stranger and letting them know I was on the case. However there was no one there.

    It was not a dark and stormy afternoon. The sun was hot and blazing so much so that one would reconsider one’s wardrobe or deciding to wear the gumshoe traditional outfit. However there is no way I will be taking this here suit. The ground was covered in dry yellow grass as far as the eye could see. There appeared to be hills at the end of the grassy plains. A few trees were scattered about creating much desired shade which you desire greatly at a moment like this. I walked towards the trees to shelter myself from the scorching sunlight.

    After the long boring walk towards the shady trees, which for sure seemed to be much bigger when seen from far away, it is best to sit under the tree and rest. I rested myself a bit. Once rested you consider your predicament. Hmmm yes it does seem like this is indeed the same planet you live in. Grass and trees still certainly look like grass and trees. Perhaps you traveled back in time… that could be a possibility. Or this could all be a dream. You remember you already considered this and you are awake. I slap myself again just in case I was mistaken and realize AGAIN that yes I am AWAKE!

    As you ponder your situation you notice a lone grazing animal in the distance. It appears to be a sheep. This sheep is for some reason very interesting. So interesting you decide to get up and follow it. I followed the sheep from a distance as it gobbled up dry grass. That is when the sheep notices you. It looks up with its blood red eyes. Do sheep have red eyes you wonder, perhaps they do. The sheep walks up to you. Perhaps it will be your new partner in solving this mystery.
