Foul Shot by A.W.Evans (prolouge)

Legacy Price is a handsome black woman, not beautiful in the classic sense of African-American beauty, but pretty nonetheless. But this night her features are contorted and tears stain her high…Continue

What You Need to Know About Me:
I'm a writer who's been there and done that, and brought back the t-shirt and cap. I write about where I've been and what I've seen. And I always ask, "What If?"

My Sister's Keeper

The murders were nothing new. Over the years they had become so common they barely registered a 15-second spot on the late news and maybe a hastily thrown together three sentence obituary buried deep in the middle of the cities crime sheet of the local paper. They went almost unnoticed on the streets of Trinity Gardens, a neighborhood familiar with ambivalance and death and names whispered and discarded carefully in juke joints and trap houses. Places where BB king and Muddy Waters blended easily with reefer smoke and sweat to seep through diaphanous walls into dew slick streets and urine stained alleys. Death was a casual acquatance, murder was slightly more intimate.

 

I'd heard about the disappearances, the murders. Grim gossip of death. I turned my head. It wasn't my problem, not my fight. I was battling demons of my own at the time and ghosts from my past slipped into my nightmares and swam into my soul like pungent smoke from a burned out mortuary. By the time I got involved Trinity Gardens had become a killing field.

There are words floating around and around inside my head and they form certain sentences that hold the promise of danger and excitement. Letters that spell death and rebirth, and lies, and freshly turned graves. They smell of dead roses pressed tightly between the pages of old family bibles, and of red clay dirt on the bank of a sluggish river. They warn of mystery and terror, and the sight of black blood in the light of a full moon. I write of hangings and stabbings, and things that stay to the shadows. I write because I must. There is a darkness in us all, and it is that darkness into which I throw my dagger. I hope you like my work.
