DK- Beyond the Ashes- 15Chapter 15
"Buts whys not, Charles?" Toki looked at the older brunette with an almost hurt expression. Charles sighed again, his impatience to get going beginning to show through.
Damn flight delay. What on earth was the hold up?
"Because, Toki, we only had enough for one ticket, this time, and what if he's not there? I'm honestly not sure if I should, ah, even go-"
He was abruptly cut off by a very angry Pickles smacking him in the arm.
"Da fuck, dood?"
"What? What did I do?" Charles was bewildered. Pickles hauled off to hit him again, but Skwisgaar reached out, seemingly without even looking, and grabbed the drummer's wrist from where he was leaning against the pillar behind the bench, stilling it instantly. Pickles set to yanking on one of his remaining dreadlocks with force.
"How can you even say dat? How can you naht be sure you should go? This is Nate'n we're talkin' about, man!"
Charles resisted the urge to rub at his bruising arm. He was on the utmost alert. His flight t

The relatively short walk to the garage was mostly uphill. Charlie cursed the city's rolling hills under his breath softly as he panted, nearing the hill's precipice. As he turned into the parking lot, something suddenly hit him in the back of the ankle. He turned, a little surprised, and looked down. A tennis ball had come to a halt by his feet. Gingerly, he bent down and picked it up, looking around for its owner. A young blond girl ran up to him, innocent, but wet eyes flickering between his and the tennis ball in a silent question. He took in the bruises and the cuts on her hands, knees, and elbows, and then he heard the snickering. Three little boys were quietly laughing to themselves on the other side of the street. He frowned, raising an eyebrow, and dropped to one knee in front of the girl, putting on his best concerned face.
"Is this your ball?" He asked with a smile. She nodded, and Charlie handed it back to her, earning himself a small smile, which revealed
The Things I Hear...So, I was sitting at my desk, home alone at 1:16 pm, listening to Dame Kiri te Kanawa and getting a feel for what I would be working on with my vocal coach later on that day, springtime allergies aside.
And I was crying my eyes out.
At first glimpse of the watery vision impedance, I believed my eyes to be running from the pollen count. And then I stopped to think about it. Which is something I really should never do.
Why was I crying? The tears were quite unlike anything I'd experienced in recent memory, and even my long term failed to bring up more than one other occasion where I had this sort of reaction. I rarely cry unless stressed beyond the point of no return, and even then, it's not a life-hindering action. My face grows wet, and I simply continue on with my day like nothing at all is happening. It's more of a stress relief mechanism, than anything else.
But these tears were different. Oh so different. I looked down at the sheet music in front of me, and then over at the neatly

So's how's ams we finds him, Charles?" Toki looked up at his manager from his crosslegged position on the floor, blue eyes wide with a poignant mixture of confusion, worry, and determination. Charles paced the floor slowly, deep in thought. Murderface made a face at the youngest member of Dethklok.
"Fuck if any of usch know."
"William, that attitude is, ah, not going to help the situation." The CFO murmured while he passed the bassist in his trek across the living room. Murderface shrugged, trying to mask his own worry with abrasiveness, and sunk down beside Toki. Pickles had been coaxed into brushing Skwisgaar's hair for a beer (somehow the Swede was in control of the booze that came into the apartment, which made absolutely no sense, but so far, no one had been drunk in well, years), and looked up from his task to glance at Charles.
Skwisgaar took his turn at ideas.
"Uhh we asks peoples on de streets "
