A Whateley Academy Adventure

The Boys of Summer

by

E. E. Nalley

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back"
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

—Don Henley The Boys of Summer

The Black Diamond Club, 1012 Norman Ave., Berlin, NH

To call the building that housed the Black Diamond Club nondescript would oversell it in terms of the most gross opulence. A simple brass plaque announced to the world the club's name, and hanging below that a smaller sign that declared "Members Only". There were no windows, only the single door and while it was tastefully ornate, it was also steel and would likely stand up to anyone trying to force the issue of whether they were a member or not. Not that any of that seemed to bother Ms. Hartford, who strolled authoritatively towards the door, heels clicking on the pavement, while Tansy followed her, wondering if her designer jeans, a sweater, and knee boots were a bit underdressed for the occasion.

The Best Days of Our Lives

by ElrodW

Part 2

I count the steps the distance to
The time when it was me and you is so far gone
Another face another friend
Another place another end but I'll hang on

It's a winding road
It's a long way home

So don't wait for someone to tell you it's too late
Cuz these are the best days
There's always something tomorrow
So I say let's make the best of tonight
Yeah let's make the best of tonight
Here comes the rest of our lives

Best Days

Kayda's Home, South Dakota

Danny Franks staggered into the kitchen looking haggard, and pain was evident on his face. Groans of agony punctuated the silence as his mom flipped on a light and then stared, wide-eyed and mouth agape, at her son.

The boy recoiled from the ceiling light, holding his hand up over his face and turning away, while tears leaked down his cheeks. "No light, please!" he insisted in a raspy whisper. "It hurts!"

“To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.”

“How are you feeling today Tara?” Dr. Anthony Carter asked his young test subject.

The teenager shrugged, which was almost lost in her baggy Guns N Roses t-shirt. “OK, I guess.”

Carter smiled encouragingly, knowing that getting the girl to talk was going to be a challenge that day, still he had a few secret weapons. He pulled a bag of fast food out of its insulated box and put it in front of her. “Here, eat up. I know the cafeteria food isn't always the greatest.”

A Whateley Academy Vignette

You don't really need to find out
What's going on
You don't really want to know
Just how far it's gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

The Committee met as usual by teleconference.

It was unusual for people as powerful as they to all be in the same time zone, let alone on the same continent. Once or twice, members had not even been on the Earth while they dealt with the various minutiae of their far flung empires to further their goals. But despite the challenges, each took time to deal with things as important to all of them as this was. So as each member looked over their sheets they were a bust in an open window on the laptops of the other members, making a virtual board room where they could meet to plan out the future of mankind.
