The Yard

SAMUEL DURR

"Jackā€¦stop," the words were difficult to say but she meant them. She did but her eyes still relaxed into his work. "Stop," she pled, trying to convince herself but lying with her one hand, pushing his head deeper and deeper, her other still squeezing the trigger of the revolver. The hammer stretched back. So intent on control but letting go all the same. Jack pressed feverishly, it wouldn't be long. The hammer reached its climax just as she did.

Jack's fine with scavenging illegal bottles of booze, he's okay with living in the Yard among horrifying insects and he'll tolerate his only friend strung out on black jacket, but his bounty just reached the triples and now every Townie in the Yard is out to take his head. With his back against the wall he strikes a deal with a woman known only as the Queen, he'll find that bottle of the old and return Scarlet-her missing sex slave- on the condition the bounty is absolved. There is one problem, Jack knows the Queen won't let him live; he knows that she will end his life as soon as that vintage tequila rests in her fingers. Lucky for Jack, he also knows the Queen cares much more for Scarlet than she lets on. He keeps the girl as insurance until he can figure out his next move, but strange things start happening and Jack begins to realize that this magnetic sex slave has a shadow deeper and darker than he could ever imagine.

EXCERPT

   

The girls followed Jack as he broke trail through the sweltering forest. He stepped high and his footfalls were voiceless. Once, upon coming to a section of brooding ferns he stopped, waited and watched. The girls held themselves like nervous statues behind him. After another thirty minutes of walking Jack pushed his way up to the base of a large Kapok tree, rotated his head to the side, and stared up the enormous trunk.

"Perfect," he said triumphantly side-winding, still looking up like a parishioner praying to God in the dying light.

Amanda and Carly followed his line of sight and both of them let out a shriek. Scarlet scrambled back. Fixed on the tree forty feet from the ground was a monstrous bug the size of a shack.

"Relax," Jack stated pushing his hands toward the ground. "It's just a shell. Keep screaming and the bugs will think you're a free meal." He turned and took a deep breath and then pointed up to the translucent alien shape stuck on the tree. "That is where we are staying tonight. That's our scare crow."

"What is it?" Amanda asked, her lines becoming silhouette in the low light.

"The skin of a cicada. They're the bugs that make that noise this time of year. Every season they shed those. It's safe to sleep in. Done it more times than I can count."

Scarlet's posture elevated and her stance loosened. The sisters followed suit and stepped forward. The shell was as thick as a dinner plate, with a sharp slice running down the back. Jack noticed that the girls seemed to accept the thing as harmless but the sight still made them uneasy. Its sharp, tiny appendages were nailed into the tree. The former eyes of the beast were as large as watermelons.

"Follow me," Jack spoke as he began scaling the tree.
