Soothsayer Ch. 10, Pt. 2

Notes: On to the theme park and a lot of questionable decision making, woohoo! We're rolling right along with this story. I estimate we're over halfway at this point, which is kind of nice but kind of sad. So goes the blog. Thanks again to everyone who entered my giveaway, I'm so pleased you played and I'll get to your comments asap! If you won, congrats, if you didn't...well, at least you get free fiction.

PS: I've neither played paintball nor do I speak Icelandic, so I apologize in advance for any inaccuracies.

PPS: My bespoke story winner gave me this amazing picture as a prompt. What could I not do with this? So many options...

Title: Soothsayer Chapter 10, Part 2.


“Running away will never make you free.” – Kenny Loggins


                You weren’t supposed to bring a firearm into an amusement park. Well, who knows, the rules were probably different in a place like Texas, but in Missouri the prohibition stood. More than that, I wasn’t comfortable carrying and possibly firing a gun in a place where a lot of children were going to be running around. There was disregarding my own safety, and then there was being okay with copious collateral damage, and I wasn’t going to be that. So fine, no gun. It didn’t matter. I just needed to find Sören and get out of here. Hopefully I could snag him as he came off of a rollercoaster and get him out before his brothers even got close.

                Yeah. And how often did things work out for me like that?


  1. That's pretty much how I remember paintball to be :-) The only person I managed to shoot all day was on my team!

    Over halfway though? Noooooooooooo!

    1. I know, the fuck what? I might be a few chapters off, but I've got to tie this bad boy up somehow. Hmm...tie him up...

  2. Oooohhh we LOVE " questionable decision making!" But we hate "more than half way through". Interesting paintball scenario! Loved it! Great chapter!


    1. This would be me playing paintball, I swear. I'm a vicious little bastard under certain competitive circumstances. ;)

  3. Oh man, I wasn't ready for this one to end. That kiss...nnnngh :)

    That train photo is gorgeous. Is that in CO?

    1. Yeah, the kiss...not that I'm trying to send mixed messages, but I just had to!

      The train is actually in Switzerland, and I agree, it's completely gorgeous. The person who won a bespoke story used it for her prompt and my jaw just dropped. And then I got a huge number of ideas and just, damn it! You people and your good ideas! It's irresistible.
