    Summary

    I don't remember what it was like being alive, well, I mean more alive than I am now I guess. There's something different about all of us now and it's pretty obvious considering everyone and their brother has guns trained at our heads. It makes sense in the long run I mean we do have to eat and those with beating hearts just so happen to be our food source.

    Summary

    Everything was normal for me until it wasn’t.

    That’s a weird way to put things I know, believe me I know weird when I see it, I’m the epitome of the word. The origins maybe, it all depends on how you look at it, well to me anyway. At some point in my life I was normal or what the little town I lived in dubbed as a normality of sorts. There were stranger people, believe me.

    My name is Tweek Tweak, and this is my story.

    Summary

    The sound of the alarm rouses me from sleep, it was once a sound that just meant it was time for school. Now all it did was make my stomach churn.

     

    The alarm means getting up. Getting up means going to school. Going to school means, inevitably, that I was going to have a new bruise before first period even started.

    Summary

    My family was nothing but a circus act to others, that is if you would even consider us a family. Just my brother and I, living the life on the top floor of an apartment in Houston, Texas. Regardless, the fact that we were seen as the scum of the earth, was me.

    I knew it was my fault, this is not one of those stories when I blame myself for things that really aren't my fault, in fact, this is pretty much the opposite. This is where I introduce myself and tell you why I'm such a screwup, why I'm the one to blame.

    Dave Strider is the name, I'm seventeen and I've been living with just my brother since my parents died when I was around nine years old. Even before they died, I had been acting up. Constantly I was running away, doing drugs, getting into fights. Of course the drugs came later along the line when I was older. Recently I've been getting into sexual encounters with older people.

    Summary

    "I have no idea why you insist on going to Forget-Me-Not-Valley without me. Every time you do you end up passing out in the mines. You work yourself too hard boy."

    Dave heard this speech every day, Bro grilling him for answers after giving a long lecture and "worrying" about his well being. Of course he cares, he'd raised him since Dave was a kid after their parents had died. But honestly, he were a man now and could take care of himself. Sitting up in the bed he pulled the towel off his forehead, dropping it into the bucket by the side before reaching out and patting Bro on the cheek. "You need to relax, I'm sixteen. I know what I'm doing by now."

    Summary

    Time.

    Time was important to us all, it ran our lives, consumed it. Though we don’t really think about it, most of the time we wanted it to pass. On the contrary, in a place like this, time was your everything. It wasn’t just important, it was absolutely vital. There was a thing called watches, numbers displayed on your arm in bright green. Your aging stopped at twenty five, and then that watch was counting down, one year to live and one year to find yourself another way to gain more time.

     

    That’s what I had to do.
