Short Story #16

You don’t mess with Marcus and get to live.

You don’t mess with his children and get to see the next daylight. You don’t mess with his wife and get to see the sunset from the Eiffel Tower. But most of all, MOST OF ALL, you don’t get to mess with Marcus da Díxon’s identical mirror image twin and get to breathe the next minute. Ray was the reason why his heart beats. The reason why he existed. When they were created, Ray was chosen as the automatic function between the two meaning that if Ray dies, then Marcus dies.

Ray had danger magnet stamped on his forehead and Marcus found himself trying to do the impossible: protect his twin at all cost in order to keep them both alive, something he recently failed miserably at, hence the reason he found himself in the seediest Parisian district known to the French searching for his missing twin, his heart beat growing fainter with every passing second.

*** I am still struggling to write. I don’t have writer’s block, but my focus is not on writing short stories at the moment. This is something I found while going through my flash drive. I kind of added a little bit to it, but that’s about all the writing I did. It’s a Science Fiction story, but I don’t think I’ll be completing this one. It was an experiment of sorts. ^^

Teaser Tuesday: magazine covers!

Teaser Tuesday:

Since my adorable muse is still on vacation, I am actually spending the free time doing creative stuff and I like where it’s heading. Today (technically, it’s evening now, but hey! It’s still Tuesday!), I share what I’ve been up to lately.

I’ve been playing around with colors and I’m no expert (as yet), but I am working on it. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to have my own magazine, something I’m currently working on in my spare time.

This cover was done for a story that I’m supposed to be writing for a friend. The model is not mine and if she belongs to you, the reader/browser, let me know and I’ll take this down.

The da Díxons belongs to me and I’m building a fictional fashion empire around them.

This one is the cover I might go with, but I ran out of color patience! I don’t like the green, but I’m too lazy to change it:

As for this other one, I’ve never written Tom Cruise into any story of mine before (I used to write Michael Jackson fan fiction, though), so when my friend gave me this challenge to include my favorite celebrity in a story, I decide to go with TC as a businessman and use his birth name. I also give him a son… but the story is yet to be written. 

I had fun creating this magazine cover and the headlines!

So, I’m not writing, but at least I’m creating. Let me know what you think.
