Nighttime is my time. That’s when all of the bad boys and girls come out to play. I’m a player too. The thing? I can’t be touched. But I can make life miserable for the not so lucky.

I venture into rural areas sometimes, but the city is my home. The smell of trash and exhaust fumes, the sounds of people bickering and laughing. Women and men pass me. The scent of their overpowering perfumes and colognes invade my nose. Light pollution draws me. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I walk down the streets in all my five foot two glory, smiling and watching the herds of people strolling by. My demeanor gets me some strange looks. To everyone on the street I look twenty-four. I’m much older. My long blond hair sways with my gait. My soft blue eyes are as sharp as a hawk. I can hear the slightest sounds from miles away.

My glamor tonight is black leather pants, a black leather tank top, and black leather knee-high stiletto boots. Blood red lipstick shines on my lips. I have the smokey eyes makeup down to a tee and enough mascara on to make my baby blues pop.

On my wrist is a black leather bracelet. A black studded choker is wrapped around my throat, and my favorite black spiral earrings dangle from my ears.

“Meow,” I whisper and giggle.

I don’t normally dress up like this, but tonight is special. It’s my birthday.

I glance up at the rooftops, looking for a good place to plant myself. I’m on the lower east side tonight and I’m craving mischief. Real mischief. Not the light-heartedness that’s been my companion on my walk. I wander into the heart of the downtown area, or the strip as most people call it, and settle myself on a rooftop overlooking some restaurants and a movie theater. I wait.

My name is Shay, and I’m a karma junky. Not to be confused with a vigilante. I dole out karma. It’s in my blood.

Tonight will be another perfect night. My smile widens. I think it’s my permanent expression. My job is so much fun, and gratifying. I’ve been here before. I know what the bad boys and girls are up to.

I glance up at the stars and listen.

A couple coming out of the bar below are arguing. I’ve listened to this couple argue before. I’m not sure they ever get along. 

She’s quiet most of the time, then they have a few drinks, he finds something wrong with her and lays into her. She stands her ground, but I’m still not sure why she stays with him. She’s beautiful and can find a better match for herself. That is until she becomes his punching bag. I hear a slap and then another slap. He shoves her into the car and the argument explodes. I want to throw some karma down his way. Really want to. He deserves an extra karma bump, but I can smell cancer eating away at his insides…

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
