5| Chapter 3:
Ancient horseshoes from days passed are disturbed and parted by tire tracks. A dirtbike. The dirtbike, of The Dirtbiker. He rides here too.
The trail brings me to The Triangle. A nexus, the first when you enter through The Gateway at the pond. A gigantic fallen tree rests on the left, and blocks it from the other side as well. My only option is right. I take for it, hearing the heartbeat of the suited man from beyond the fallen log.
The trail takes a cool left hook. A house stands bare, obvious in the naked trees. A fire burns in the chimney. Boots on my feet, I take off sprinting.
Tie a knot, double it down, and unhook the laces; why would one tie boots twice?
I pass by the entrance to Summer Stroll East. Board stands tall, trees lined and in uniform. The air has a warm deadness to it; giant’s woke, still half sleep’d.
The suited man comes for me. I know he does. I can feel it like the cold in the marrow of my bones.
The Dirtbiker’s Trail. The tire tracks were a sign. I must take it now, while I still have a chance.
At the head of Purple Bend, I make a decision and veer left. The wind ushers the leaves, revealing boulders in the bend.
Hello Commons, this has been chapter 3 of Boardtrip: Cans, Cannabis & The Hillside Commons, a smaller book hidden in the back of The 2020 Event |The Sideshows|, a satirical short story anthology about Existence and the universes that float within it. |The Sideshows| is the final book of the First Spiral, a longer story called The Highest One Writing.
The Highest One Writing is a story about an author told through the books he wrote. It starts with a self-help book and ends with the destruction of Existence. Also, it may or may not take you to the depths of insanity and back.
|The Sideshows| is available to read for free in its entirety on my website. Click here to check it out.
I’ve written a few other books, too. Click here to see the list.
If you like |The Sideshows| and would like to help support my work, click here and buy an autographed paperback copy (or anything else!) from my store. Alternatively, you can snag a cheaper (and unsigned) paperback copy from Amazon by clicking here.
Be well Commons~
