Now that I got the reprints out of the way, which were an unfortunate necessity, I can continue with the first original (and so far only) story written for my first attempt at expanding a piece of flash fiction into something with more meat to it.
The third story in this little quintuplet involved quite a bit of experimentation on my part. I'd already started exploring the theme of sibling relationships in the first two stories and with this particular story, I went a couple of steps further. Much further than I had anticipated, but not to the point of crossing that proverbial unspoken line.
I'm not sure why I decided to explore the darker side of sibling relationships, but I did manage to lay some basic groundwork for this particular story as to how depraved and pseudo sexual this relationship was. I think it would have been interesting to see just exactly where I might have gone, had I decided to continue with this story.
I would like to take a moment and elaborate on a myriad of points that the past two stories and the upcoming three stories contain:
1} All of the action takes place in the Southwest. The first story took place at a desert truck stop, so I thought I would continue on that particular theme (the desert, not the truck stop). The first town that I mention in the story, as far as I know, doesn't exist anywhere beyond a dog breed. The second town that gets mentioned, is a real town in Arizona (was shooting blanks for a name of a town, so I pulled out my handy dandy road atlas). I thought the name was really funky, which is why I picked it.
2} The aforementioned strange sibling relationship.
3} I was going through a brief vampire phase during this time period, so naturally, I made these women vampires as well.
4} I did introduce a hunter into this particular story arc, which you'll find in part two.
5} In part three I began the introduction of a possible secondary character from the other part of this incomplete novel (more on this in the month of May).
6} Strangely enough, the only actual sex in the story was what you read in the story posted on April 7th. Everything else is incredibly suggestive. Lots of violence though.
7} Original inspiration for the story was the song "Your Disease" by Saliva. Original title of this story was On A Mission.
For your reading pleasure, I present part one of part three of Persona Non Grata, sub titled "On A Mission".
