Goldenrod Ch. 02

The message I left went as follows:

'Mikaela, this is Tom. I don't know what you're telling your friends but I've had a lot of people- I'll call them short haired girls -grinning at me and making crude remarks on campus and in town, and I'd like you to knock it off. Thanks. Sorry if I bothered you. I hope everything is cool. Bye.'

I was sitting in a coffee shop working on my laptop when a bag dropped on the ground beside me and Mikaela plopped into the chair across

The ship's mechanic had restored a lot of my confidence, but I still needed closure with what had happened at the sorority. How to get that I wasn't sure. Karen had said she owned me, and whether or not that was true, I didn't want to go through life believing it, no matter what I did on the weekends. 

Watching a dance class diverted me because I have always loved the sight of women in tights, and the motion gave my mind something to work on without having to spin thoughts. My hea

After my defeat by Karen, I wanted to disappear, and I didn't care where I wound up. While reading the paper I found a classified ad for an assistant mechanic on a fishing boat docked in the harbor. They sounded desperate, and no experience was necessary, so I informed my advisor I was taking a semester off, and walked to the bay. When I got to the gangplank I told a sailor why I'd come and he ushered me on board to the bridge, where I met the first mate. He gave me the wage and how long I would

I saw a circle turning. It felt like I was tied to it, or maybe it was taking me somewhere, but it didn't seem like a car tire. A wagon wheel is what it reminded me of, with big carved spokes, and each one of them was like a clock hand. 

When I woke, we were driving, and I had my head on Rebecca's shoulder. She had her arm around me. Her smile greeted my tired eyes through the kaleidescope of passing tree shadows, and I settled against her to fall back asleep. Resisting fatigue, I

What I wrote in my paper was what I felt then: I like girls, I'm not attracted to boys; also that I want to be dominated (I'm very submissive) but I could never give up control. I'm too willful. That is the information that got to Mikaela, the T.A. for my psychology class. I didn't know it then but Professor Branning was making her grade all the papers while he taught the classes, and gave the students the impression that he would be the only one reading those things. I knew who Mikaela was but

The inside of the structure was a public bath, and ornately decorated compared to anything in the vicinity, or even to the outside of the building. Directly in front of the door was a rectangular pool flanked by marble columns and palm trees growing from cut squares in the floor. Semi-transparent white curtains divided the fore from the background, and fences of crossed wooden strips defined the perimeter. The air was spiced with intoxicants. Bells chimed faintly and birds sang unseen from cages

I'm writing this for the sake of the Order, so that should a threat like the one depicted emerge again, we may have some means of recognizing and defeating it. This account is factual to the extent possible, with sensitive information changed or omitted insofar as doing so would not alter the overall meaning. I appear as a character below, so further data about the setting or background may be obtained with appropriate permissions from my personal file, as necessary.

"Hello, and welcome to this meeting of Dealing With Impotence. We have a new member today. Mark, would you introduce yourself?"

"Hi, everybody. I'm Mark, and I can't get it up."

"Tell us your story."

"Okay. Well, it's been a recurring problem for me. I'm not in a relationship now, but I want to come to grips with this before I start another one, no pun intended." There was laughter from the bunch. "A connection with a girl is made, we start dating, ev

I awoke to the doorbell ringing. Stumbling through my apartment I tried to remember if anyone was supposed to visit me that day, but when I got to the porch I saw a total stranger standing there. She looked at first like a miniature Mikaela. As I studied her through the harsh light I became aware of the differences between them. This girl's style was what you might call Gothic, if that ever intersected with Schoolmarm. Over her dark vintage clothes she had a heavy black coat, and slung over that

I entered the house at 8 pm as instructed to find an empty foyer that was expensively decorated but dark and musty. Stairs curved up the wall and social rooms were situated to the left and right of me, but it felt like no one was in the building at all. Surprise made me start when a girl appeared at my right, and I laughed at myself when I saw how non-threatening she was. A petite blond in a fluffy white robe and matching slippers, her long hair tied back in a ponytail, and her scent that of flo
