Dark Light
One more in the crowd but different for knowing what everyone seems to ignore. Living surrounded by deadly poison but unable to do anything to help others.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Keith. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it. While the story does leave some unanswered questions, I feel that it’s important to leave some things to the reader’s imagination. That being said, I appreciate your interest in a sequel and will certainly consider it. Stay tuned for more!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Suneeta. As a writer, there’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that your work has resonated with someone. I’m glad that you found it to be a wonderful read, and I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Peter. While I’m not familiar with “Far Out” or Exopolitics.org, I appreciate you sharing your recommendation. As a writer, I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting stories to read, especially in the sci-fi genre. I’ll be sure to check it out.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Brian. I’m glad that you found it to be a good story. You’re absolutely right―the poison serves as a symbol for the unknown and uncontrollable forces that can ravage our world at any moment. As a writer, it’s always my goal to create a story that resonates with readers on multiple levels, and I’m grateful that you were able to see that symbolism in the piece.

    1. Thank you for your comment, David. I’m familiar with the film you mentioned, “The Last Man on Earth” starring Vincent Price, and it’s an honor to be compared to such a classic work of fiction. As a writer, I’m always looking for inspiration from various sources, including film, literature, and personal experiences, and I’m glad that “The Crazy One” was able to evoke that connection for you. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and leave a comment.

  1. Thanks again, Sebastian, for sharing another one of your writings.
    I had fun reading it. Thanks!
    Remember what I told you before that you inspired me to write too.
    I’m really enjoying myself. Thanks again!

  2. You could easily carry on with what happened to Titus. It would be lovely to know. I love all your short stories. You are the master of them BUT it’s now time for Sebastian to write a novel. I’ve told you this so often. Keep going with the short stories, but it’s time to take things further Sebastian. If your’e not ready for a novel, then just a novelette.

  3. I was left wanting more. Why this virus? I want to connect to the character. I see so many different directions that the story can turn and am intrigued to find out.

  4. This must have been fun to write. You quickly placed me in Titus’ head and his shoes too… haha. Allow me to offer this one thought. I hope that the world that Titus has to face is not a zombie-infested scenario.

    By the way, I am envious of your writing discipline. Thank you for including me…

  5. I hate to admit this: this is kind of interesting to me on one level that I hope is not… too disturbing. I have Bipolar and I am always interested in how “crazy people” are portrayed in literature… we aren’t really foaming at the mouth in real life… especially if we are on our meds… I hope that isn’t too dismal a take on your blog… You can look at my blog “My Life in the Kaleidoscope,” or (for autism) books:
    Temple Grandin’s Thinking in Pictures;
    Donna Sommer’s Nobody Nowhere;
    But I don’t know… perhaps mental illness itself was not the point of your story…

  6. With everything going on now this story is very relevant as Titus strives for some sort of normalcy. This sounds like chapter one. Will there be a second chapter?
