Could Luna Make Them Forget?

He stood in the darkest shadows of the dimly lit room. Nothing could be seen of him except the intermittently glowing tip of his cigarette. When he spoke, it was more like a growl than a voice.

"What do you mean, you couldn't find her?"

"She's too clever..." The second voice was a raspy wheezing.

"You hafta be MORE clever, stupid!" came another growl from the shadows.

"You try finding someone in this friggin' shape-shiftin' world!" Rasper's patience was wearing as thin as the skeletal body hidden under his long black coat.

"Lookin' with your eyes again? God, if you weren't already dead, I swear I'd kill ya!" Growler stepped from the shadows and stood menacingly close to Rasper. His eyes, if you could call them that, were not much more than white slits. When opened fully, you could barely see the cloudy nothingness that led to a vapid soul.

Ghostly "Charm"

"Well, I sure as HELL couldn't find her with your eyes!" Rasper prided himself on a ghostly charm of which his ghastly partner held a seething jealousy. Rasper couldn't help it. He fancied himself as the handsome one. He'd seen more than his share of the inside of women's bedrooms in life. He wasn't sure how he'd kept his good looks in death. Many a lady-ghost fancied that face. Yeah, he was gone - staring at himself in the cobwebbed mirror of his mind.

"You hafta listennnnnnn, turdstool! Lisssssen for her!" Growler drew the sound out like a hissing snake in Rasper's ear.

"Oh, I wasn't thinkin' - I mean she is so - so..." he was too lost in his lust to finish the sentence.

"Well you can't have her! You never could! Damn friggin' creep! You deserve to be here more than I do!"

" Aw - alright - I remember - I oughta listen 'steada lookin'." Staggered breathing followed. "She plays the piano, right?"

Sounds of Vengence

"She's playin' YOU right now!" Growler backhanded his partner, wrenching his neck further to the side than would be humanly possible.

Rasper took both hands and righted his neck. He moved it from side to side, as if to settle it back into place. The crunching noises irritated Growler to no end. "That was totally uncalled for," Rasper whispered. He picked up a chair and threw it at Growler's already misshapen head. Another day, another fight.

Why they had ended up like this, they could barely remember. There was a vague feeling of having known each other before - having worked together rather unsuccessfully.

Now they were doomed to this ever-worsening hell - just two frustrated, burned out, dead musicians. Both believed that Luna was to blame. She had cheated them in life! Hadn't they promised to give her ten percent of their profits? They'd captured her! They'd almost gotten her to give them that one hit song, just one Dammit! But she'd escaped!

They had planned to rule all of Popdom with that record! They had platinum stars in their eyes that she had single-handedly dashed to the ground. Drugs, alcohol, and a careening car off of a dark California cliff had done the rest. There was nothing driving them forward now - except vengeance and lust. In their twisted minds, she'd denied them success. Now, she owed them. And they intended to make her pay - if they didn't beat each other to dust first.

      That piano photo fits in much better with the rest of the scenery.

      Hi Mike - Thank you for your pointers! I am new and inexperienced on this site - so I could have gone for months or more without noticing the apostrophe, quotation mark thing. Thanks! I'll see what I can do about your other suggestions. Thanks for reading!

      Hello heavenleigh707, I'd like to point out that your apostrophes and quotation marks are really messing up your titles. Take a look at your links to the other parts of the story. It is an issue with the way the computer reads, it is distracting to any potential reader.

      I read with interest. I do not remember when I read part three exactly, but part four did not ring any bells, where there threads from 3 to 4?

      The dark photos fit well with the text. I did not 'feel' the piano.

      A Heaven Leigh song would have added to this.

      Thank you for your comment, Billybuc. I knew it was a bit risky, but I had to go with the writing I felt more confident about. I'll never be able to step anyone through rebuilding their computer or baking a wedding cake - so I thought I'd take a shot at a serial fantasy. If that doesn't work, I'll try Cereal Fantasy. Food does really well here. ;) So far, the fantasy pieces have the highest scores, but that fluctuates. We'll see - I guess time will tell. Thank you so much for reading! Now I'm gonna read more of yours so I can learn how to make my way around Hubworld! :)

      Very interesting story and well-written. I'm curious how you do with fiction on HubPages? My attempts have bombed, especially two or more parts to a story. It either means my stories are horrible or the attention span of our Hubbers is not all that great. :)

      Anway, well done!
