Kametsu Island [Mae and Shazi Collab]

Recommended Posts

A collab between Myself and Mae. short little snippets of life on an island called Kametsu.

2csb1ic.jpg

There was an island, with a population of 16,520. This island was called Kametsu and many of the people that lived there were sort of strange.

There was a man named Koby, the mayor, who was often referred to affectionately by his townsfolk and “God.” The judge Renzourin, held much of the power over the people, was fair to everyone who came through his court.

The chiefs of police: Mae, Shazi and Raz, kept people in order with the help of their police force.

Shazi was on patrol down Main street when she spied a man limping away from his car. Being one of the police force it was her duty to investigate.

“Hello, are you alright?” She asked the man.

“Kro is fine, but his car isn’t,” The man responded. Puzzled by Kro referring to himself in the third person she glanced at the car. It indeed, did not look alright

“Stay here and try not to hurt yourself more,” Shazi told him. She went to investigate the car.

“Kro thinks that you should stay away from that” Kro called behind him, just as the car become alight on fire.

“Oh dear” Shazi said, and quickly pulled out her phone to call the fire brigade.

The fire brigade responded quickly, as expected of them in the small island population, they had the fire out and everything under control before it could become a major problem. The man known as Kro was taken to the hospital and put under guard, Poe and Pollo were assigned to watch over his checkup as Shazi searched the site of the accident.

"There are no tire marks on the ground here..." She mumbled to herself bending down closer to the ground "Not even faint ones."

"Careful" Came a male voice from behind her "Someone like me might take that as an invitation"

"Dart!" Shazi jumped up "Don't do that, you scared the hell out of me!"

Dart said nothing but as he walked away Shazi could hear a soft chuckle.

"You really should not get so distracted sis," Talena smiled as Shazi spun nearly losing her ballance "Cause someone like me can come up behind you and do what I just did."

"Mae! That was evil." Shazi held a hand to her heart between her breasts. "Has God been told?"

“Not yet,” Talena said with a smile. “Shall I, or do you wish to?” she asked.

“I’ll do it,” Shazi said quickly, for everyone knew that God must be told of things. And best they be told by the one who saw it first.

She took her leave from the site and headed to the mayor’s office. Koga was sitting quietly at the desk, getting on with secretary things.

“Oh hello Shazi,” He said plesently “off to see God?” he asked.

“I am” Shazi said. “I have something he needs to be told of” she smiled.

“He’s not busy, go right on through” Koga waved her in. Shazi nodded and marched her way up to the office that had a plaque on it which said “KOBY” in big bold letters

Carefully she knocked on the door.

“Come in,” a voice rang out to her in reply.

Even sitting at his desk Koby was an imposing fugure, his broad shoulders fit perfectly in his tailored suit. Koby had dark red hair that the sun highlighted though the open window, his face was rounded and his eyes would light up when he was happy.

Shazi bowed low to him and keeping her eyes to the ground spoke, "Sir I-"

"There was a car accident, the man named 'Kro' is currently under guard in hospital, you and Talena are investigating the incident and thought you should report to me." Koby cut her off

Shazi raised her eyes to his "You know? how could you..." Koby gave her 'the look' causing Shazi to bite off the words. Soundlessly he pointed over her shoulder a sly smile on his face. Shazi turned to look, and mounted above the door was a flat screen LCD television showing views of the wrecked car, herself and shots of Talena taking photos. "Oh, that's how."

"Keep me informed." Koby stated turning back to his paperwork.

"No wonder people call you God" She mumbled on the way out.

"What was that?" Koby called

"Nothing sir!" Shazi said quickly making her exit.

“Sooooo. How did it go?” Talena asked when Shazi arrived at the station for her break.

“He knew” Shazi replied simply.

“He always knows” Talena agreed “and Kro?”

“I haven’t been to check on him yet.” Shazi said, staring out the window of the police office.

“After work then, when you go back home to Dart” Talena teased and poked Shazi’s belly. Which caused Shazi to giggle.

“Yes Mae” she composed herself. “back home to Dart,” she grinned. “back to work I guess, we got a whole other half of the day to go.” she stood up and waited for Talena to follow her back to the streets.

***** Later that night; Mae's House******

"Honey, I'm home!" Talena called out.

"Who are you calling 'honey'?" yelled a voice from the kitchen "You know I am just helping you out because I feel sorry for you!"

"Aww Eve don't be like that, you know I love you!" Talena hung up her coat and wondered into the kitchen only to be rapped over the head with a soup spoon. "Ow, what the frick was that for?"

"Out of my kitchen!" Eve yelled her blue wig hiding a stock of brown hair. "Out out out!"

"Geez, you don't-" Talena Quickly rushed out of the room laughing as Eve went to hit her again but missed. "Ok ok! I will set the table calm down sis!"

"Bitch" Eve grumbled

"Love you too sis!"

"fuck off." Eve said coming out of the kitchen with two bowls of soup and a huge smile. "What would you do if I were not here?"

"Die of hunger..." Talena smiled back

"Yeah yeah." Eve placed the bowl before Talena "Eat before it gets cold. How was work?"

"Someone called Kro had an accident, Shazi said she will look in on him in the morning." Talena swallowed a spoon full of the soup smiling again. "As the shift drew to a close Dart decided to streak down Kametsu Drive, I had never seen Shazi move so fast. I'm sure he will be sorry later tonight."

“Oh I can see the look on her face now” Eve started laughed and pulled a face,

“Nah, it was more like this.” Talena responded with her own silly face and they both started giggling uncontrollably.

“you said the guys name was Kro right?” Eve asked.

“Yeah, he reffered to himself in the third person. Poe and Pollo were watching him, though I think their shift has ended now. Irish is probably watching him if he needs it” Mae replied “Why?”

“I know that guy,” Eve mumbled, “and I’m not surprised he was in an accident.”

“No?” Mae was curious

“Lets just say, Kro and vehicles are a bad mix,” Eve shrugged.

**elsewhere, the hospital or something like that***

“POE” Kro yelled from his room

“WHAT?” Poe yelled back,

“Nothing,” Kro cackled, Poe growled to herself.

"Poe?" He yelled again.

"WHAT?" She called back.

"Just checking." Came his reply, Poe gripped her baton tighly making to pull it out but Apollo gripped her wrist

"I know it is annoying, but but try to ignore him-"

"Pollo!" Kro called

"He is doing it to get attention-"

"POLLO!" Kro called again

"So if we ignore him he will-"

"POLLO!?!"

"Shut up and go to sleep!" Apollo said a little louder then he intended.

"POE, POLLO, POE, POLLO, POE, POLLO!" Krog chanted.

"Hey you! What's your name?" Poe asked a passing doctor as Kro continued to chant their names.

"I'm Rune, what's the trouble?"

"Can you do something about him?" Poe asked poking her thumb towards the door. Rune tilted his head a smile on his face as he listened to the continuing chants of "Poe" and "Pollo"

"Sure." Rune unlocked the door and walked into the room. After some banging and crashing, Rune walked out rubbing his knuckles. "All done, I doubt you will hear from him again before morning."

"Thanks!" Poe beamed at him.

"Anything for a pretty lady." Rune bowed to Poe before winking and walking off down the hall whisteling to himself.

Rune wondered into his patients room, apparently there had been an epidemic of food poisoning from Oby’s soup kitchen. The third one this week.

“Hello there Fumi, how are you feeling now?” he asked with a cheeky grin.

“much better thank you doctor, but um.... why do I have a room to myself?” she asked softly

“because my dear, nothing but the best for my patients” he winked, “I’ll be back to check on you later” he left Fumi’s room and wondered into Mute’s

“Mutey, how are we?” Rune asked

“She’s fine,” Mal replied for her “Can we go home now?” she asked

“Let me see,” he went over Mute’s chart “everything seems to be in order, just let me go and get the release forms” He smiled and took his leave.

“You better hurry, I want to get a good meal into her!” Mal called behind him.

Rune whistled his merry tune and nodded to Empathy as she walked past him. He quickly glanced behind him to get a look at her behind before continuing to the office.

“Man I love nurses” he said under his breath.

****Oby's Kitchen that same time*****

"I said hurry up and make that damn soup!" Oby towered over the chefs soup ladle in hand ready to hit anyone who was falling behind. "You! Yes you, Randy wasn't it? Make sure you don't put anything in there that is not on my list!"

"Yes ma'am" Randy replied, however as soon as Oby's back was turned he added something extra to the soup he was looking after.

*****Hospital*****

"Look Poe, our replacements are here." Pollo pointed down the hall, Poe saw Irish walking towards them a limp in his step. "What happened?"

*****Hospital, Rune******

"Come on Rinoa, no one will come in..." Rune said touching her face lightly. "Let's play 'doctor'."

"Rune, I don't know about this..." Rinoa stated "Maybe later..."

"I will take you at your word." Rune quickly grabbed her face giving her a kiss before walking out of the supply closet winking at another nurse as he continued into another room.

****Shazi's Apartment******

"Oh god! I said sorry!" Screamed Dart as Shazi bought the whip down again. His wrists were tied to the headboard so he was unable to move. "I was just playing around!"

"I....don't....care!" Shazi panted and unable to continue she sat down next to Dart seeing his smile she felt her lips twitch in responce. "What?"

"You are cute when you are jealous..."

****Mae's House****

"Alright, I'm off sis." Eve called opening the door.

"Thanks alot Eve." Talena hugged her.

"I know you love and miss him, but it will work out in the end..." Eve gave her a quick hug back and with one last wave left.

Talena closed the door and with a sigh started her normal evening routine...

**Hospital**

“Lets just say some people on this island are nuts” Irish replied

“You can still take over guarding this guy right?” Poe asked anxiously.

“Yeah, why so eager to go Poe? Got a date with someone?” Irish teased.

“POE!” Kro yelled from the room.

“Far from it,” Poe growled, gripping her baton so tightly her knuckles were white.

“POE!” Kro yelled louder

“You gonna answer him?” Irish asked.

“Nope,” Poe said simply and left Irish to watch Kro, Pollo tagging along behind her.

“POE!”

“She’s not here” Irish replied

“Pollo?” Kro asked

“Nope, just Irish” Irish replied

“oh...” Kro said sadly “IRISH!” he irked up

“What?” Irish asked

“Nothing” Kro cackled and Irish immediately regretted telling Kro his name.

      Aishod is a story I have been working on for years (and is still on it's second draft) I started it for NaNoWriMo in 2011 and finished the first draft for NaNoWriMo in 2013. Since then it has been and on/off sort of project (since I started writing a novel for my mumsy) but I have edited and rewritten the first 9 or 10 chapters to a standard I am much more happy with. I'm still not totally happy with the story, there is a lot of explaining that needs to be done and a lot of things that need to be expanded but for a second draft of a really rushed story I am pretty happy with it.

       

      The story of Aishod...

      Aishod follows the young and somewhat imulsive princess Pippa who has come home from magical boarding school. She had been receiving vague letters from home for years and suspected her uncle Tibbott of foul play. As soon as she returned she was put under house arrest, but little did her uncle realise that her magical ability of the mind far exeeded his own. She easily slipped out of the palace unseen and hired the mercenary Ivy to help her work out what is going on. The two are set on a journey niether of them expected as the Guardans of Magic warn that Tibbott is planning something far worse than just removing the Queen from power and taking the throne.

      Michael stared at the woman in the mirror. He supposed averaging four hours of sleep over the past two weeks wasn't ideal, but hallucinations seemed excessive.

       

      She seemed to blink when he did, mimicking his other movements perfectly. Even the number of teeth seemed to match as he ran his tongue over each one.

       

      When he reached for the long dark hair that flowed over her shoulders in the reflection and grabbed an unexpected handful of hair, he took in a slow, controlled breath. The reflection smiled, the corners of her eyes crinkling and drawing attention to the faint bags that formed beneath.

       

      He felt his lips part. “That’s enough for now.” The voice was feminine, static faint beneath the lilting sounds. “Rest your eyes, won’t you?”

       

      Michael went to sleep.

       

      ===

       

      Something stank.

       

      Corben tried to roll over and go back to sleep, but was met with utmost resistance from his body. He groaned and took a mental step back, focusing his energy into opening his eyes.

       

      It was painful, like soap rubbed under his eyelids. His arms wouldn’t cooperate long enough to let him rub the pain out, so he squeezed his eyes shut, forcing out the pooled tears. They tumbled over his cheeks hotly and still his eyes burned.

       

      After a few orchestrated blinks, he managed to stabilise his vision long enough to examine his surroundings—or, at least, realise he was staring at the open predawn sky sandwiched between towering grey brick.

       

      The smell hadn’t left either.

       

      He tried to move again. It felt like he was lying on garbage bags, but he couldn’t get past how much his eyes hurt. Whether the bags were filled with pizza boxes or rotten fruit didn’t make much difference—he needed to get up. Corben grit his teeth and tried to launch his upper body forward.

       

      When his back seized with pain instead of lifting, he swore he could crack a tooth. He clumsily groped the bags beneath him, trying to force some feeling into his limbs long enough to figure out what he was lying on. What little he could feel through the plastic was immediately recognisable.

       

      Bottles. Broken bottles.

       

      Corben laughed.

      Rattle

      By Jeremy Lloyd Beck

       

      Chapter One -- Welcome to Write Club

       

       

      The first rule of Write Club is you never tell anyone they should stop writing.

       

      Lucius Alugan joined Write Club so that he could brag about how his vampire movie was a genius re-imagining of Greek mythology. “Real next level shit,” he said. Lucius works as an overnight stockboy at the neighborhood Snak N' Grab and came to Write Club to feel like a writer; he came to Write Club so that he wouldn't have to sit on his ass and make pages to feel like a tortured writer. Lucius Alugan pretended to be an alcoholic and a Satanist for his writing. His government name was Joseph, but pretended the name's Judeo-Christian roots offended him.

       

      The second rule of Write Club is you never say when a story is a rip off.

       

      Mononymous Henna told everyone she was a proofreader for Rolling Stone, but we all knew she worked the sandwich cart. Henna came to Write Club to get feedback on her song lyrics. Like every other singer-songwriter hopeful, she wanted to fuck a rock star and believed that meant she had vocal talent. She wore black and boots and died her hair jet because that's what she thought was cool. She was going to bring the hard rock back to pop music. Her music was shit but she had a cute face and eye-liner, so maybe she could achieve her dream if she learn how to stuff her bra.

      Sir Lancel Aincroft tried to ask her out for lattes after Write Club once, but she didn't want to risk staining her perfect white teeth. The same week, Lucius got her number because she thought his frilly white shirt was exotic and original and totally rock n' roll. That weekend, Lucius took her to his crypt to get her drunk and blacked out on her shoulder. Sir Lancel spent the night abusing his emergency inhaler and masturbating.

       

      Jennifer Logan wanted to become a blogger. She came to Write Club because she couldn't figure out anything interesting enough or true enough to blog about. Nobody asked her out for lattes or sex because she wore a pixie haircut instead of make-up. Everyone at Write Club knew Jennifer cleaned the toilets and children of some interchangeable Hollywood executive. Lucius tried to convince her to give her boss his screenplay, but she wasn't stupid. When Jennifer wanted a raise, she bought gel inserts for her empty bra.

       

      The third rule of Write Club is that you give any writing exercise a chance, no matter how bat-shit it sounds.

       

      When Sir Lancel Aincroft suggested everybody go through Craigslist personals and write up a character sketch, Lucius said he was a hack and that his Conan the Barbarian rip-off stole it's plot from Lord of the Rings.

       

      The fourth rule of Write Club is that you don't use words like “hack.”

       

      When I created Write Club, I was looking for a place to practice my craft. I always believed that words were magic, that they had the power to build new worlds and realities. Sir Lancel believed that, which is why he wrote Conan rip-offs and colored them with rings of power, it's why he wrote escapist fantasies where good also won. He knew that words could create the worlds that didn't exist but should, the ones we need to survive. Sir Lancel understood that we would all burn in hell if we never thought to write ourselves a heaven. When I started Write Club, I was looking for a creative space to build my own heaven.

       

      The fifth rule of Write Club is that you always find something nice to say about a piece before you critique it.

       

      “It's shit,” Lucius said. “Another Lord of the Rings rip. The world doesn't need another one of those.

      Sir Lancel cringed.

      “The sixth rule is honesty;” Lucius shrugged.

      “At least include what you liked about it,” I said.

      “I liked that it ended,” he replied. “Took it bloody long enough.”

       

      One more thing about Lucius: He wasn't British, he just thought it was cool to steal vocabulary from the BBC.

       

      “I liked the world you created,” Jennifer offered. “It was. . . big. Epic and all that. I liked the map you drew of it all.”

      “Yeah,” Henna followed, “real big, really complex. Like a movie. I liked that. And the bit with the snakes was creepy.”

      “He'd never make it in Hollywood,” Lucius muttered. I frowned.

      “Neither have you,” Sir Lancel whispered dryly, eyes lowered, lips static.

      “Up yours, Harry,” Lucius spit, tipped back in his chair; Henna touched his shoulder; Sir Lancel took a hit from his inhaler.

       

      His real name was Harry, but he went by Sir Lancel Aincroft, his D&D name. He was fat and tall and smelled like his job at Burger King. When he worked the fryer, he had to wear a hairnet around his wild neck beard. He studied computer repair at the local technical college and sent anti-Creationist letters to the school board as a herald of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a sort of sauce-strewn Cthulu. He swore off alcohol and drugs, but always kept the emergency inhaler he didn't need nearby for a few inebriating puffs.

       

      When it was my turn I told everyone about the snake that whispered to my protagonist in his sleep. I told them about how crazy it was driving him and that I was beginning to suspect I had an ending – between you and me, the hero goes nuts and axes the shit out of his bride to be.

      “Does somebody die?” Henna asked. “Somebody always dies in your stories.”

      I smiled.

      “It's horror, not pop music.” Lucius said. “Of course somebody dies. Somebody has to die.”

      “Why though?” She asked. “Wouldn't it be more of a surprise if they didn't?”

      “What can I say –” I laughed – “every spell requires sacrifice. I guess mine take it in blood.”

      “Be careful with that dark stuff, man,” Lucius warned.

      “Said the Satanist?” Jennifer raised her eyebrow.

      “It's not for everyone,” he retorted; I smiled; Sir Lancel turned his head away from the entire scene.

      “My song today is about finding true love on Craigslist and finding out it's your spouse,” Henna said, beaming in her ingenuity.

       

      The second rule of Write Club is you never point out when a story is a rip off.

       

      On the bus, I was struck with a vision of my story, I saw what it could be and what it should be. I felt it run through my blood like a virus, an amoeba swimming as fast as possible to my death. I pulled out my cell phone and, chubby fingers fumbling over the touchscreen, I wrote the last act of my story. The words were there; the spell was written. All that was left for me to do was to put it all together and cast it on the world.

      When I got home, I was happy to be done for the night. My daily word count achieve, I was content to give myself over to slumber. I quickly stripped to my boxers, climbed in to bed, and let a snake-fueled ax-murder drift gently out of my mind – or perhaps it just sunk deeper in.

      After I went to bed I woke up in my protagonists room. A three-legged crow tapping it's nine talons impatiently against my dresser. It was crimson red and flecked with gold. The bird opened it's mouth to caw, but nothing came out. All I could hear was the hissing.

      “Sssacrificce,” I heard, turning instinctively to the golden snake in the aquarium by the bed.

      I straightened in the bed and tried to stand up, but, as I turned to stand up, I realized my legs were both flayed and bleeding; I realized I was not the hero.

      The hero was standing over the bed with an ax.

      I heard the crow's cawing like an echo as he lifted his weapon. I grabbed the nightstand and pulled myself to the ground as the ax dropped deep into the mattress. My hand slipped into the nightstand drawer and pulled out the gun I'd left for my ill-fated heroine. It was unloaded and unhelpful, but that was the story and my body couldn't help but follow through. I squeezed the trigger and listened in terror as the gun clicked impotently as the hero – wearing my face, as all my heroes do – climbed over the bed, ax raised, ready to end the story.

      Then the bird flew between us, the hero slipped fell backward off the bed and his hatchet fell helplessly behind him.

      Then the hissing returned.

      I turned to the sound and saw the snake, scales aglow, growing fatter and longer in it's coil in the small glass box. The snake grew until it could no longer be held back; the sides of the aquarium popped and sand and water spilled from the perch. The snake continued to grow as it crawled toward me hissing:

      “Ssssacrifice. . .”

      The snake turned and snapped at the bird. I watched it dance in the air and then fly out the open window. I was alone.

      The snake raised it's expanding mass and hissed provocatively, its tail rattled like the muffler on my first car.. Make a move, try your luck, it seemed to say – though it could clearly say so if it wanted to.

      That's how I wrote it.

      That's when my protagonist grabbed me by the shoulder and, hand choked up on the ax, released the mortal blow. I winced as the blade sunk easily through my collarbone; I felt the very tip touch my heart.

      “Thank you,” the snake hissed, coiling itself back up.

      My protagonist dropped me back to the ground and began hacking cleaving blows into my chest, the blood sprayed like a water fountain in hell, all the way up to the ceiling fan.
