First up, a big thank you to everyone who has commented, faved or watched me recently. I don't always have the time to thank you individually but I do really appreciate it.
I need a holiday. Like Hotblack Desiato, I'm think about spending a year dead "for tax reasons"
*I googled "Hotblack Desiato" to make sure I got the name right, and the first bunch of links are for a chain of Estate Agents! Cue rant about the sorry state of a world where Estate agents are named after a character from HHGG. But no. It turns out the character is named after the Estate agents. How cool is that! Truth stranger than fiction.
last night on earthAt last, everything was ready. The ship was readyhe had dragged it and pushed it and rolled it to the clearing, and after a long week of struggle, it was finally in place. He had stocked it carefully with food, even taking some special treats for himself in case he got bored with normal food. (He prided himself on being a good planner.) His goodbyes had been said, with much sniffling and hugging. He had left what little possessions he had with his closest friend and protectorand at last, at long, long last, he was ready to leave.- This is a fantastic piece. Please read it, you won't regret it.
For this would be his last night on Earth, the last night he would ever spend looking at these stars
