Twittering Tale: By Her Side

She has always been my friend.

I’ve always been there for her. I stuck by her through the good days and the bad ones. I stuck by her side when she lost her head over some guy. I was there even when he cut off her head.

Now, I am by her side as she delivers flowers to his grave….

Twittering Tale: Midnight Snack

I hate this.

These midnight hunger pangs are the worst. I have to get out from my cozy bed and go all the way to the kitchen, in darkness, because I don’t want to disturb my sleepy eyes. It’s scary. What if there’s something in the shadows?

And even worse, what if it wants my food?

Twittering Tale: The Storm

Red alert has been sounded.

All the citizens have retreated into shelters. It is a pointless endeavour. I stand at the top of the tower, looking straight at the approaching storm. Storm of the century they call it. What fools! This is just the first one.

The first of my storms…..

Twittering Tale: Secret Letters

It was difficult breaking into here, I hope it’s worth it.

A world leader he may be, but his room is just as messy as the next person’s. I guess even his secretary is not allowed in here. Let me look around.
Ah! What’s this now? Military letters? No, Love letters.

What a scandal!

Twittering Tale: Astral Fungus

Starboy to earth.

Seems to be some kind of fungal growth. I think the satellite needs a nice scrub. I have the tools here. Beginning procedure.
Yuck! Now it’s all over my suit, and it’s spreading fast. Starboy requesting immediate extraction. Suffocating.

Belay request. All’s good.

Twittering Tale: Payphone

This payphone.

All those years ago, I remember I would stand here and call her. She used to stay in the adjoining building. We would sneak chats whenever we could. One day, a great fire broke out here. She didn’t survive.

I can still listen to her voice, on the payphone receiver…

Twittering Tale: Downpour

The rain is pouring down hard.

I do usually love the rain. However, today it has completely ruined my plans. It was all going well until now. The takeoff has been delayed. How will my plan be executed now?

I just can’t hijack a grounded flight…

Twittering Tale: Voiceless

I had so much to say, but I never got the opportunity.

With all the torture and acid, those filthy bastards took my voice away. However, they could not take my will to say. I share my thoughts.

I carve them on the skins of the guilty, or write them on the walls with their blood…

Twittering Tale: Cages

Here they come, the supposed saviours.

They have come to challenge me. No doubt they want to defeat me and take possession of the keys to the cages. Do they think that they can free their captured kin from my grasp so easily? I am not letting them have my pets.

They are all mine…

Twittering Tale: Hooman

Humans are not a very smart species.

My hooman however, is not your average human. She’s way less smart. Don’t mistake me. She’s a lovely person and loves me a lot. But not the brightest bulb.

She keeps the air conditioning so low sometimes. I need to wrap myself up in a blanket…
