Malpractice! The Novel by William Louis Harvey @sexandlawnovel #Legal #Drama #AmReading

In the midst of this process, he heard the water start in the shower but didn’t alter the pace of undressing. When all was in order, he went into the bathroom and opened the shower door. He stood there, immobile except for a growing erection, admiring her beautiful body. Cleo was a few inches shorter than Paul, neither thin nor fat, with a firm body; beautiful, firm breasts with erect nipples; a thin waist; and smooth skin that had a slightly tan color from her one-quarter Hawaiian heritage. Her face remained exotically beautiful after all of its makeup was washed away, with just a hint of Asia in her eyelids, and she had black hair that was stylishly cut short.

Her pubic hair was also black and appeared to be standing guard over the delights below, like the eunuch guarding the sultan’s harem.

Finally, in mock anger, Cleo said, “OK, Boss, either come in or leave, but close the door. You’re getting water all over the floor.”

Paul laughed and complied. They put wet, soapy arms around each other and washed backs while their fronts were in contact. (pp 181-182) Malpractice! the Novel

"Nightmare" from THE REALITY MASTER (Vol.1) by @PMPillon #Excerpt #YA #SciFi


Joey turned off his cell phone on his way home in case Frank called him to ask bothersome questions that he didn’t feel inclined to answer. He wasn’t ready to deal with Frank or even Kurt about this yet. Kurt would try to protect Joey but he might slip up and someone could find out from him about Joey’s bizarre stone, so it was better to just keep him in the dark for now. Natalie, come home! he silently beseeched her. He felt like he could tell her about the stone and thought about calling her cell phone, but then realized he should wait and tell her in person when he could also show it to her. He wished she had picked some other time to go to the Inland Empire for that educational seminar. Just a few weeks ago he would have turned to Paul, but that was no longer the case because the Paul he knew then was different than the one he knew now. It occurred to Joey that he may have gone daft because of his mania that forced him to turn into competition virtually anything he did. Or was it possible that the mania was just symptomatic of what also brought on the stone hallucinations? 

Whatever was happening to him, it was getting worse and he had no clue what to do about it. Joey got home and went straight to his room without looking for his family members. He had no lock on his door, so he shoved a piece of furniture against it because he felt too disturbed to talk to anyone if it could be avoided; blocking his door was something he had never even thought about doing before, but he never had stones talking to him before either. He remembered the strange thought about his mission starting now. He asked himself, What mission? How can going crazy be a mission? He decided to jump online and look for clues. 

Almost every evening he listened to a local radio show about paranormal phenomena called Moonlight, but he had always thought of it as only entertainment; that show might be useful for shaping efficacious search terms, had he afforded it more serious attention when he listened to it in the past. He typed in hallucinations seen on objects only to encounter nonsensical reports such as people who perceive Mother Teresa’s face on potatoes. Next, he tried strange devices, and read most of an article about sentient machinery before discovering it was satire. After an hour of searching but remaining clueless he gave up and lay down on his bed with his pillow over his head. Later, he rolled over on his back and supinely covered his eyes with his left hand as though he could perforce stave off a debacle.

When he moved his hand to his chest he realized his heart was racing – not a good sign for someone who was languidly reposed. Joey felt himself sinking into a profound and potentially dangerous malaise. Loudly – but not so loud his family would hear him – he exclaimed, “Go away, leave me alone! Go bother some other kid, go bother a grown-up, anyone, just not me!” 

The fear and trembling that he had felt repeatedly momentarily overcame his sense that the stone was his friend, that it was on his side. Meanwhile, the book bag with the stone in it silently lay next to his feet at the foot of his bed. He looked at it and at his scruffy sneakers with their untied strings. His mom had noticed this and repeatedly warned him to tie them or he would trip and fall. Okay mom, he thought, you’re so smart, explain this weird stone! He shifted his right foot, bumping his book bag, and the stone rolled out. He stared at it as though expecting it to talk to him. In a sense, it had, telling him he had a mission and showing him how to win and how to fix Frank. But why had it done so? And it paused for his assent to the options it showed him. Did Joey’s assent really have an effect? 

His celestial companion was waiting for him
Precariously climbing a sea-side cliff near Big Sur, ten-year-old Joey Blake was as yet unaware that near his grasp was an object, so odd, mysterious and alien to earth that it would change his life forever and the lives of countless others in the next few astonishing days. Reaching up as far as he could for a handhold it was just there; it had subconsciously lured him, occupied his mind, and made him find it. It was like he was meant to see and discover this object of unimaginable power … the power to change reality.
