The Singularity, Epilogue

Claire couldn't help but shiver. She couldn't tell if it was the chill air coming in off the ocean, the moisture that hung heavy in a fog, or the combination. She put her arm around Morgan, as much to steal her warmth as to comfort her as she watched… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Thirty, Consensus

“Maybe,” Kevin said. “But I'm not looking to dictate.” “But you are, anyway,” Knowles said. “Your dad's lightning strike- that's the farthest back anybody else's enlightenment goes.” “Enlightenment?” Chris asked. “I like that.” “Thanks. But my point… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Nine, Decisions

Kevin's day had not been going well. He was kicking himself over Chris. He'd made the right call at every stage, but hindsight still made him feel like he should have suggested surgery earlier. And that was what he heard, as a drumbeat, in his ears,… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Eight, Emergence

Claire stirred slowly in bed. The previous day had taken a lot out of her, and she'd been looking forward to sleeping in. And maybe bartering sex for a back rub- sometime after noon.  That was why she couldn't understand it when her eyes opened. It was… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Seven, There Is Love

It’s getting dark, now, and Claire drops her off at the beach, where she finds Chris in a wheelchair and a tux, and Sam wearing his most priestly attire, in front of an arch with papier mache roses on it. He proposes, and they marry, then and there. Sam… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Six, Deserving

“I… still don’t understand,” Morgan said, blinking into the sun. “Kevin needs to run some tests on Chris, anyway, after his surgery, the kind he has to do in the clean room,” Claire said, shutting the driver’s side door on Kevin’s Bronco. “And we were… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Five, Causality

“You're staring at me,” Kevin said, uneasy. “Do I have a piece of fry in my nose?” Claire grinned. “You saved a life today,” she beamed. “I went drilling for oil in a man's skull,” he replied testily. “What I mean is... him not dying isn't cause for… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Four, Creative Destruction

Claire felt self-conscious sneaking down the steps from Kevin's bedroom. She was already late, but that didn't matter. She shared a room with Knowles, so it was certain he was aware that she hadn't returned home, and what that meant. And of course she… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Three, Regrets

Sam told himself that Claire and Kevin were making too much noise for him to be able to sleep. It was easier to blame it on the spanky sex than to admit to himself that he was feeling lonesome. That wasn't why he was stealing quietly into Chris' room.… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-Two, Truth and Consequences

“So,” Kevin said, melting into the cushions on the opposite end of the couch. “So...” Claire said, amused at his delaying. “I'm not saying I believe you- that I accept that the singularity really exists; but if I did, and if we changed things... we'd… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty-One, The Talk

Molly was annoyed. Her uncle, Sam was late picking her up after school. She didn't mind waiting around; she still hadn't finished three-starring all of Angry Birds Space on her phone. But she got looks from people who went by. Only losers waited that… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Twenty, Understanding

“You didn’t sleep with him,” Chris said, “but you wanted to.” Morgan took a sip from her cocoa and coffee, because she didn't want him to be able to see her face. “I know I get pissed easy,” he said. “I yelled at you til I was hoarse once just because… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Nineteen, Guilt

The lights were off inside Trevor's room. He had a single set of blinds opened, so he could look out at the beach. “Thanks for rescheduling, I know it was inconvenient,” Kevin said. “Not like I had anywhere to be,” Tervor said. “I’m a captive audience,… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Eighteen, New Dawn

Kevin stared at his alarm clock. It was too late to call. But he couldn't sleep. He frowned, but he picked up his cell, and dialed. “Hey,” he said, as soon as he heard it picked up. “Hey,” Claire said. “Can't sleep?” “Nope. I was sleeping like a… more »

The Singularity, Chapter Seventeen, Mendfolk

Knowles kept an eye on Chris the rest of the day. He might have stayed at the clinic overnight, had Trevor not tapped on his arm. “You need a break nearly as bad as the lady,” he said.  “You sure? And you’re okay, yourself, right?” Trevor chuckled. “T… more »
