Yaj

Yaj was a bad man. He didn’t think so, but most bad men don’t. His thinking was someone had to hunt and kill tigers, might as well be him.

He heard the trap spring closed on what he hoped was the big sucker he had been tracking. Finally he might be able to call this hunt successful and collect the bounty from Mr. White.

But he was disappointed to stand over the closed trap finding something must have gone wrong. It was empty. Turning around, thinking maybe the wind, he resets the mechanism.

A sudden heavy shifting above.

He looks and finds himself staring into the satisfied face of irony.

I call NYC home and wish the subway went everywhere and Times Square didn't suck. I saw John Turturro once. Maybe it was him. He was wearing a yellow shirt and smiled at me like he knew I knew. I am an Army vet who writes. I like characters who want more then they deserve. I like genre fiction. I love space. I love paladins. One day I might write a paladin in space story. Just you wait. The university of South Florida spit me out with a degree in creative writing and I find myself questioning the sanity of going to a school that advertises a fake beach on its brochure ever since. I intuit grammar. I Got married in 2012 We had twins in 2015. I do a lot of cooking and dog walking and ranting about the unfairness of sentience.
