  At anytime over a million trucks are professionally driven on the highways and by-ways of America. Carrying everything from acid to yachts. Not all loads are so innocuous. Some are precious and some are out-right lethal. For loads that are deemed dangerous or valuable to be referred to as High-Security, special trucks are used. Trucks that look so normal, one would never guess it from any other. Trucks that run in secret, apart from their company, called Ghost Fleets. Others have no markings at all, and are specially modified. One such company that specializes in High-Security Loads; Phantom Lines....

Hi All,

Some of you may have noticed that I decided to go back and edit the older chapters and fix any typos. While there aren’t really any substantive changes to the story, I did clean up a few things and ensure that the story’s timeline flows correctly. I also clarified a few things here and there, as well.

Don’t feel like you really HAVE to reread these older chapters, but if you do and find you like them, please consider hitting the ‘Thumbs Up’ button if you haven’t already done so!

Thanks for supporting the story and I hope you continue to enjoy it!

Now for the new stuff…

Glimmer Girl #3 - “A Deadly Obsession” (Part 2)

The day after the campus attack, and it was all anyone could talk about. Even the Lovin’ Spoonful, Tanya’s refuge from the world of ‘normies’, wasn’t safe.

Trix marched to the corner table with a grimace and a tray, and slammed her partner’s drink down. “Cops have been in here three times already,” she spat. “They know I don’t know anything. For god’s sake, we’re on the other side of the grounds!”

“Any excuse to harass us will do,” Ashley said.

(Author’s Note: I am sorry it has been so long before I wrote another chapter. I wasn’t at all well, but I am better now. I will continue in bold type as I can’t see the font unless it is in bold type. Please accept my apologies. Thank you all for reading and commenting. Barbara Lynn Terry,)

Midland police took the arrested parents before the Midland County district attorney. Assistant district attorney Jim Watts drew the Gaynor cases.

“What do we have here, Joe?” Jim Watts asked officer Hines.

A day at the lake during the mid-summer heat, full of barbecues, family and mildly confused neighbours.
It could almost be considered idyllic if you ignored certain unfortunate clothing choices being thrust upon certain poor unsuspecting people by their pushy sister and daughter..

Oh well, let's hope that's the worst of Hannah's problems today, shall we?

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Wet John cuddles and stolen T-shirts being stolen.
Large hands being used for various things
(to rather worrying degrees of success as well),
Meanwhile Hannah drools on John's crotch and a pow-wow is interrupted rather rudely by a matriarch on a mission.

Hold on tight folks, it's swimming trip day at Klamath Falls!


Yep, I can fly (part 3)

What if you could fly? You, know, be a kick-ass superhero whenever you want. That's what happened to college freshman Ned. Though, here's the catch—every time he uses his powers he turns into a woman. Still want to be that superhero?

A Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed -- Chp. 20 Last Dance?

I got to know Doug so quickly in fact that it felt like I knew him my whole life. Nothing seemed out of bounds, except my dark secret. And even there Doug got to know me better than I know myself. The real me.

Real Family Part 17- Finale

drrzFS3.jpg
Juan's death hit the family hard. Hannah broke down as she cradled Juan's lifeless body in her arms. Ian was angry that he couldn't catch any of the cousins and felt that he let Juan down in not stopping them right away. His wife Sheila could barely contain his rage, he had never failed at anything before.

Real Family Part 16

The real penultimate chapter. Not kidding this time. Part 17 will be the finale as I have finally exhausted all possible avenues of thought.
drrzFS3.jpg
The next morning Nancy was dropped off at school while Todd went to work. Mia was scared of what was going to happen but was told that arrangements had been made for her for the day. She was dropped off with her new grandparents, Joshua and Peggy Raymond, in Mattapan while Astrid went to work.

Real Family Part 15

drrzFS3.jpg
Things settled down for the next couple of days as the Pierces packed up everything and started the move. Oscar and his best friend Kyle Douglas were put in charge of directing everything while Steven was left to play with Dante, Logan, and the other boys. It wasn't meant to be him being pushed away, the Pierces explained that it was simply felt that he would feel obligated to do everything to earn his keep which he didn't need to do at all.

Support is.. necessary [5.4]

Some things in life are so unbelievable we doubt if they actually happened or not,
Other things are so embarrassing that we wish they hadn't really happened,
and sometimes things fall into that awkward spot somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.
What can you do about it at the end of the day?

What can HANNAH do about it more importantly!

Events unfold including but not limited to:
John being trapped by a disappearing wall and Eris has a front-row seat to the creation of a universe.
Meanwhile some familiar familiar's get familiar with each other
(try saying that one three times fast),
and Hannah goes on a power-trip while wearing a long white silk nightgown!


Real Family Part 14

I figured it best to end Part 13 on a partial cliffhanger than a full one, if you are observant you might see where the intended end of Part 13 was.
drrzFS3.jpg
Logan had been dropped off early and talked with Junior, Ethan, and Neil who all wanted to know how he was doing. Logan was feeling a lot better and was eager to move on and talk about anything else. The four walked around with Logan finally asking about how they got used to so many people.

Real Family Part 13

This is the home stretch with a couple of new twists coming. Sorry for dragging the story out, but I won't apologize for trying to write something that is a concept- real family for kids who need it. The situations are different but the root stays the same.

Debriefings 22

Debriefings
by
Anam Chara

Along life’s journey we each encounter those events where all that we know, all that we do, and all that we are may change. But even as we approach such events, we don’t always notice their markers until we look behind and see them for what they were.

One boy is about to learn that he has already passed such an event, and nothing will ever be quite the same…

Real Family Part 12

I broke one of my longstanding personal rules in this part. I was in a bind and thought it best to just do what was right and throw caution to the wind. I didn't like that I did something bad to someone but it was for the greater good.

Real Family Part 11

drrzFS3.jpg

Juan was called over as well as Mark Sylvester, Anne Connors, and Chloe Daniels. This was a serious meeting and one in which the family was calling in the big guns for support. The three DCF social workers were new to Juan but their relationship to the family was strong thus they had clout, Melanie and Dan needed their help right away and Juan needed their blessing that he was in the clear.

Susan knocked on the partially open door and poked her head through the gap. The female police officer who had just approved her entry looked on ready to intervene if the patient demanded that the visitor leave.

"Hi," Susan smiled and waved at Zoe. "I know the hospital doesn't like flowers or cards cluttering up the place, so I brought chocolate."

“You’re such a glass half-full kinda chick Jenna.”
I grin and reach but look at her like that (can I have this?) about her croissant and she nods and I take it and pull a bite off with my fingers. “Yes I am and it’s milk and I come with a cinnamon roll too.”
She actually sort of snorts a little and shoves me off of her and we’re grinning at each other and it’s nice. I’m still a mess wearing a sheet and she’s a mess wearing an oversized *Hunter Valentine* Bed shirt and sweatpants but we’re like that…talking about sex and loves and serious stuff like faith and then sort of goofing off like this.
This is like it always could have been and should have been and I’m glad that I got this back.
Taylor comes in with a big tray for both of us and they smell really, really good. I look at him and he smiles. “Coconut crisp waffles and with them some lemon sauce.”
Giselle holds up one of those plastic motel/hotel coffee decanters that for some reason we have and shouts. “Lemin-sous!” followed by “I helps!”
I look at Ingrid and she looks at me and we kind of do this double mom’s thing together on the couch as my husband and our daughter serves us coconut waffles with this lovely sauce that’s hot but thinned out enough to pour lemon curd/pudding.
I love this, I love my family.

Real Family Part 10

drrzFS3.jpg

Juan could not believe that his own mother had just threatened his friend, a woman who had never hurt a fly in her life and who was the sweetest person you could ever meet. Linda was a saint, and her kids were just as well mannered. He shook his head as he looked at the shocked Linda while the kids tried to figure out what just happened and why Juan was so upset.

Atalanta's Story Continued: Reaching Home Chapter 4-5

I included two chapters since each was short. Again I want to thank Ashleigh to help my writing readable. And I hope you enjoy this installment enough to comment or send a kudo. And I went back to the original picture.

The prisoners are safely handed over, Atalanta learns what her commission actually says and means. Atalanta has a tense meeting late with Carson and later Carson and Delarose exchange ideas.

Support is.. on offer [5.3]

You can tell a lot about someone by observing how they react when stressed.
You can also find out how powerful their right hook can be too if you're not careful!

Definitely something to keep in mind if you ever decide to go 'sleeping bear' prodding in any case, right?

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Sharks with laser beams being mentioned to comedic effect,
some chicken gets chased around a stone doughnut
(I WISH I was making that bit up!),
and Hannah is declared a goddess while finding multiple interesting ways to relax at last, with John's help, naturally.


Sweet Dreams-67

Thing is that yeah there’s lots of people and you’d think you’d not be able to pick up someone coming at you but that’s actually wrong.

It’s like unless they’re trying to jump you on the sneak you can hear them taking those steps at you.

Ask folks that’ve been in real fights, there’s something that translates from attitude and intent into steps.

I turn and see Anika and Kathy plus someone I don’t know stalk/stomp waking right at me.

And that was just stupid as someone punches me in the head from behind with something metal that hurts! Not like the impact hurt but the fucking thing bit me!

I hear them laughing and I reach back and there’s blood and I pull a fucking staple out of my scalp.

*And Now…

Real Family Part 7

Ella had tears streaming down her face while Logan was ready to protect her. Linda was afraid for the kids and moved the kids to the bedroom until it was safe for them. Rachel and Miles went in with them as Kennedy sat down with Valerie, Juan, and Ricardo to talk about what was going on and why.

Chapter 19

Previously ...

“Faith! I think we’ve found a way to flush Brand out!”

And now ...

“What? Really?” Faith exclaimed.

“Yeah, come on, our magic teachers will help explain.” Arwen said.

The two girls went to the magic building, and came into a room where several teachers were waiting for them.

“Arwen said you guys might have found a way to track Brand?” Faith asked once they were seated.

Zoe was led flat on her back on the floor, her legs spread wide apart. Her dress had been pulled up above her waist and the tights on her legs had been torn away from her body. She wasn't wearing any knickers, but a scrap of torn material thrown against a wall may have once been a thong. Bruises were rapidly forming on the inside of her thighs. She was perfectly still, and her lips were turning blue.

Sweet Dreams-66

*Before…

It’s still a good day.

I’m wearing a cute outfit with black leggings and some nice but comfy actual shoes and not sneakers and a used pleated almost tweed skirt from the store with these really cool big buttons instead of the whole zipper thing and I’m wearing a black Iggy-Pop wild one t-shirt and a zip front hoody that’s one of Alex’s workout ones from the football team as my jacket and I’m in normal make-up actually just even pretty tame style for me and much more of an April taught thing and some simple jewelry.

Not too high end but not too punk give someone a hard time and not too goth to off put the preps and yet still rocking enough to rock the t-shirt and the retro skirt.

And with Alex with me and us actually still kind of still feeling the whole morning workout and all of that we’re getting looks and I take a drink of my coffee and start actually talking to people and it’s kind of great as I’m even actually remembering names as I introduce Alex who everyone seems to know anyways and yet we’re still a sort of mystery couple.

The agents took Juan to another room to talk. Valerie joined them as Juan's legal adviser, with Ricardo overseeing the information extraction from the office computers. Juan was advised of his rights but it was simply a formality as he was felt to be the scapegoat now not an actual participant.

Glimmer Girl #2 - "A Deadly Obsession" (Part 1)

There are few things so adored as a hero. It was, he supposed, the nature of people to look to those greater than themselves, as though a mirror for their own potential; and though he was not human, Simon was the same.

In a cavern paved with century old brick supported by steel and rust, the brilliant beast had erected a shrine. He’d collected scraps from newspapers and magazines, bookmarked blog posts and articles, saved pictures in dozens of folders, both digital and in print, held to every second of footage he could capture; and in every one she was perfect.

Detective Chief Inspector Osborne sipped his coffee as he reviewed the notes of the attending officer. He had been called in off standby due to a sexual assault of a fourteen-year-old girl. A fourteen-year-old male was currently waiting in an interview room with his father.

Real Family Part 4

More twists and turns, a third unexpected thread joins the mix. I am debating a fourth one, but it might be too farfetched even by WT's standards.

Dan let out a laugh at the whole turn of events. Jorge wasn't one to be so manipulative but when he was he did it for all of the right reasons. Dan shook his head and told the others "Jorge can be thanked later, I think the kids need to get home for lunch while we make arrangements for Juan's move."
