“Are you happy?” A loaded question to be sure and one that is often asked by my parents.

It started when I was a child. My parents were always concerned about my mental wellbeing but could never properly discern why or provide an adequate explanation other than to declare a generalized fear most parents have for their children. They did seem at times inordinately concerned for reasons I cannot quite comprehend.

The doors leading to the abandoned apartment building’s rooftop were being pounded by pairs of meaty fists. Sid did not care. His focus was on the man on the street below.

He aimed the reticule directly at his heart. Headshots are more ostentatious but less accurate and the high powered sniper rifle in his hands would ensure a quick death no matter where the bullet landed. Besides, though the moon and streetlights provided some illumination, it was still somewhat difficult to aim underneath the night sky.

The officer pounded the white door. There was quite the lover’s tiff, to say the least, brewing inside. While the verbal barrage the two were exchanging was concerning he could have ignored it and continued his usual beat had that been it. However, when he heard the loud crash and a bang followed by some screams, he had to check it out.

“Don’t tell me you’ve never done anything stupid, Dad,” Jennifer said, shivering in a foot of snow. “I’ve read your high school yearbook.”

“I can honestly say I’ve never summoned Satan.”

“I dreamt of her again, Dirk,” Mark said.

“Jesus, really?” Stan replied.

Mark proceeded to tell his best friend of his latest dream of the young petite Asian woman he constantly dreamed of with her auburn eyes and thick jet black hair wrapped into a ponytail. She was also sure to tell him that she wore thick black-rimmed glasses as he was really into that for some reason. He’d then describe in vivid detail how he’d kiss those thick pink lips.

They swarm me. A sea of hands reach out to me, claw at me, attempt to clutch me in their hands and fiercely bring me to my knees. These twenty-two eyes have observed me for a while. They have only recently been moved to a manic frenzy. They are now more feral beasts than men.

Hello everyone! As part of Short Story Saturday, I have posted another short story, this one entitled The Hands That Move. Please enjoy.

Introduction by Harold Koonce, police sergeant, Evergreen, Washington

So a lot of people want me to talk about this story and post it online but to tell you the truth, I don’t find the story all that interesting compared to how we found it. You see, I was just sitting in the station talking to my pal Murphy when suddenly this man busts through the doors like a bat outta hell.

We got plenty of those in mainland Evergreen.
