@Dosed,
Is the latter story one with a world ready to end too?

@Dosed,
the latter story is more about a beginning rather than an end. it's an interesting perspective though. not my intention at all, but that's a pretty cool thought you have there, friend.

@Dosed,
Well I thought that only because of the first story, really.
The first being told about a man without any cares (or little cares, since he remembers his girlfriend or wife or whatever at the end of the first paragraph), and the second being told about a man with cares-both handling the end of the world differently.

But that's not the case. Thanks for the clarification. Smile

@Dosed,
Ah, I see now. Yeah, that's why I titled the thread "two completely different thoughts." Smile the second story is actually a continuation of a stream of consciousness free write I posted in an earlier thread.

@Dosed,
"Casino's End"

Freshly shed leather, slithered away from the casino. If it were closer to the center of the city, the two would not have met. Back home, to the desert. The casino was fun. Vultures parade through the skies carrying guts of fresh corpses as banners almost saying "Merry End"...only if one looked at them a certain way. The snake didn't seem to notice. He went his way through sand and bone, settling down as the sun set down. And as the sun set down it came. Without warning it came. The snake didn't seem to notice...

Freshly bought leather, slithering towards the casino. If it were closer to the center of the city, the two would not have met. Back home, to the casino. The desert was fun. Strippers parade through clubs and bars carrying drinks. Barely covered bodies, scraps of rags held the words "Merry End"...but no one was paying attention to the rags. The man didn't seem to notice. He went to his regular table and ordered his regular drink-he downed alcohol as the sun set down. And as the sun set down it came. Without warning it came. The man didn't seem to notice...


My take on the whole two completely different thing-enjoy!

Ah, end of the world theme in both scenarios, maybe they are happening at the same time... who knows.

@mister kitten,
'She was so taken aback by the kiss she didn't even return it'
You have some good notion, you gave me a genuine broad smile.
Thank you.
Please come back soon.
