I love clock god

Age Rating:

Chapter 1

A gallon worth of odorless, colorless, and oily liquid sits on my desk. The side facing left of me has two tags on it. One reads $12.89, the other reading “Sulphuric Acid” in bold letters. Inside the cubbyhole of my desk is a thoroughly filled out sheet of notebook paper, listing bullet points, facts, and definitions, all relating to the contents of the gallon. I pour a glass of the acid, with the intention of using it as an offering dedicated to my God, who I admire greatly. I’d made it my life’s duty to sacrifice myself to him. Sacrifice myself to the Time God. Walking to the shrine I don’t feel fear. I am meant for this, and my ritual to give my body to him must be perfect.

I position myself onto my knees in front of the shrine. I would not be able to look at any place in the shrine without facing the current time. From stop watches, to lockets, to pocket watches, and to regular circled clocks you’d hang on a wall, everything is in front of me, but the main attraction is in the middle. The grandfather clock, My savior. I pray one more time, then drink the acid, the burning sensation immediately catching the taste buds on my tongue, and splitting them open, dragging them down my throat along with the liquid. I can’t hesitate or he will be offended. The burning in my throat cannot compare to the tears coming out of my eyes. They are not tears of pain, or sadness, but tears of happiness. Happiness I could be of service to the majestic clock who brought me life in a world that strictly acknowledges death.

Erika: Yooo where’s the second part?!

nizaly: Muy bonita historia y divertida.gracias

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.
