In First Place

Lost him at the Mall
We arrived at the mall around 3 pm. I had left my husband home since he had complained about the flu he had been having for a few days. My two sons, Jimmy and Ian, were sitting in the back talking about some game Ian had just bought.
Both boys had brown short hair and they were a little shorter than kids were usually around their age. Ian was 12 and Jimmy 10. I asked them to get out of the car and gave them the lists of what we were going to buy. Jimmy tried to go running off but I called him back.
“I need to lock the car first”, I said.

Others of the more despondent variety crave an appointment with me. However one thing people fail to realize is that I decline all invitations offered, I will turn up when I am ready, invited or not. I control all the bad in your life, some deserve the suffering they feel, and others need it to better understand themselves. I apologize for this, the down side to my job I’m afraid. However when you secure a meeting with me I will be sure to explain the reason behind your journey. By now I presume you are curious as to just who, or even what I am. If you are of the intelligent sort and have it all figured out, than I suppose you are questioning why someone of my caliber would take the time to communicate with you.
I am known by an assortment of identities; Azrael, Osiris, Hades and quite simply Death. Howeve
