"Xerba"

Five people had been mysteriously shot.  The victims were all killed by a single bullet with no trace of where the bullet was fired or came from.  All murders were done in a nightclub setting, and there was no motive for each killing that could be derived.  Each bullet entered the victim’s neck on the left of their thyroid cartilage destroying their eternal jugular vein causing instant death, and each bullet had the victim’s initials engraved on it.

 

The police and FBI were baffled and wanted to close the case except for Agent Ian Ross.  He was hellbent on finding who was behind these bizarre killings.  Through his investigations he had a hunch there was a mole in the bureau.  Trying to prove this he becomes aware he was a lone wolf, working by himself and enduring strange experiences that he later discovers came from a top secret government file written by aliens.

 

Ross zeros in on a man named Xerba Nightly, an entrepreneur worth millions.  Nightly is not what the world thinks he is and Ross goes through a living hell trying to find him, losing close friends to unusual murders on his quest.  Ian Ross is a man full of tenacity and fortitude and from his view it seems impossible to stop Xerba Nightly.

Getting through his senior year of high school, in love with the girl down the street, Bessie Turnipseed, and trying to decide what to do with his future were just a few things he would think about.But his thoughts were interrupted one morning when she came along, a beautiful, captivating girl who mysteriously showed up sitting on his secluded park bench, a place he kept to himself.

"Only Snowflakes Are Perfect"

Norman came into Thomas Grala’s life the day he travelled back into time. They will never meet, though, as Norman is a Time Teleportation Observer who reads and records Tom’s thoughts discreetly from another dimension. As Norman begins his record, he discovers that Tom has had a deprived adolescence and oddly enough dislikes reading, a hurdle that would need to be overcome. But most importantly he discovers Tom’s undying love for a girl that changed his life in high school. Cathy Capp was unaware of Tom’s love until time brought them together in Paris, France in 1848. It was during his years studying at The Chicago College of Performing Arts that Tom wandered across a mysterious piano shoppe downtown that lured him inside, there to meet its keeper named George (short for Georgia). She would change his and Cathy’s life forever by sending them both back in time from different locations, and both being unaware of the other’s experiences. Not knowing that he was going to meet pianist, Frederic Chopin, Tom continually questions George as to why he was chosen to go back to this specific time. To make the situation even more confusing, Tom saw a woman that he was certain was Cathy. However, Chopin is attracted to her also. But how could Cathy exist when Tom received devastating news that she had died in a plane crash into the Atlantic? There were no survivors.Having accepted that Cathy was dead, Tom determined that he would never go back in time again to try and cope with two issues; her questionable existence and Chopin’s love for her. Over time, Tom healed and he met another girl, Janelle Alexander. A sense of deja vu entered his thoughts the day he wandered into the music store she managed. It was very similar to George’s magical shoppe and unbeknownst to Tom, he would later discover that George was Janelle’s great aunt. Right before his planned marriage proposal to Janelle, a chance meeting with the mystifying George happened, sending a hesitant Tom back to 1848 to find the real truth about Cathy’s death. He contemplates whether he should stay or return to the present and recount his experience to the eagerly awaiting Janelle.

"U-KNOW"

She was beautiful, intriguing, and a talented young girl. Her passion was playing the piano. But the seventeen-year-old Reese Madison wanted more out of life than what her dystopian world had to offer. Her parents’ eminence in science was a target for an unknown enemy, the ELITEs, that wanted nothing more than to destroy the human race. Reese later discovers that their deaths were actually murders. My two colleagues and I were sent to Reese to watch over and protect her against the forces that were taking over. She could not know where I came from or who I was. Unexpectedly, Reese fell in love with me - this was not supposed to happen. As Reese tries her hardest to befriend me, she is consumed with the idea that she must find the truth about her parents’ deaths. There were things of great significance that I had to tell her - news that was devastating to her psyche. I had to tell her who I was. I was not human, but a robotoid. Reese’s first passion is now to survive, and she becomes aware that everyone she comes in contact with is not who they say they are; including her best friend, Amanda, and the rest of her family. Reese must now choose whether to help my group, the U-KNOWs fight a war against the adverse robotoids, the ELITEs, or walk away and not get involved.
