    Morning Star Wings “I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” The explorer stopped in his tracks as he looked over towards where the voice had come from. Sitting just a little off the path, or more of the slightly beaten down foliage that he was walking on, was an elderly woman. She practically blended in with the surrounding area with her green dirt covered smock, or dress, he really couldn’t tell as she almost seemed to be a shapeless figure. She was scribbling in some sort of book, as if she had not spoken, but then her mouth opened again and she continued to speak, as if he hadn’t stop, in a fairly sharp bitter tone, like a harsh winter breeze, “ ‘course none of those other folk ever listen to this old fart…” The explorer stepped towards the woman, curious as to what her story was, she was old, so perhaps she had a clue of what he was looking for. He spoke politely, “I am sorry ma’am, but what do you mean?” She growled a short emotionless chuckle, “Heh, well well, it appears like someone has some common sense.” She looked him up and down, narrowing her eyes, the most vibrant green he had ever seen, practically glowing like a summer sun glowing through green foliage like the thick trees overhead, “Or were ya just raised right by yer parents?” He chose to remain silent, she flared her nostrils as she released a harsh sigh as she studied him, “…hmm not talking, eh? Well why don’t ya sit down, rest for a spell.” He waved a gloved hand, the leather protecting it from the elements of…

    Dad instructed Ronald and Willy to carry the boxes containing tins of Bisto into the living room next to the Bully Beef and pile of seventy eights. “Wot’s the matta son, you look flustered,” said dad. Tears welled up as I blurted, stuttered and hyperventilated my tales of horror at the hands of my sadistic teacher showing him the small cut on the back of my head. Dad said nothing as he swigged his beer. Not even a response as he turned and walked into the house. More tears welled up as I thought…

    those literacies affected me in the same way that my third language did. At 15 years old, I became obsessed with the Japanese language.
