“If I’m guilty of one sin, it’s my love of Arithmomancy,” Garamond exclaimed to Hadlock as he swirled a glass of 18 year-old Lagavulin scotch. They were on their way from the airport to the OMNINet building and were driving over the 59th Street Bridge. The two were reclining in the back of their custom-made Mercedes limousine, stocked with booze, entertainment, and leather seats.

“Whatever you say, sir,” Hadlock whispered sarcastically under his breath. Before Garamond could ask what he had said, Simon spoke up, “I’m not sure I know what you mean.”

“Some say that Arithmomancy, or numerology to most other people, is akin to witchcraft, but I think God was a great fan of numbers and math because they are everywhere.”

“Do you mean ‘is’?” Hadlock suggested.

“Of course. Of course,” Garamond said, mildly acknowledging his mistake.

“Speaking of numbers, we should discuss the allocation of our deposits with the Central Banks of Indonesia and Morocco. They are quite anxious to make sure that they have taken care of all of our requirements, given that we’ve transferred the economic equivalent of about half of the world’s GDP.”

“All in good time, Simon,” Garamond interrupted. “Allow me a few moments of peace before we talk about our wealth. Allow me this moment to do my monologue, if you don’t mind.” Continue reading

What started as a simple vendetta against one of the world’s largest corporations had materialized into a great, vast disaster for Diana. She had no idea that people like Garamond were capable of this kind of hatred and viciousness, but the evidence was clearly and carefully laid out before her.

She spent most of her life trying to find weaknesses in the OMNINet and for once in her life, she felt like she had the upper hand.

Kite had done his job well. Continue reading

Excited Delirium Book: Chapter 38 (FAB: Female & Barren)

In Manhattan, a small group of women who call themselves “FAB”, short for “Female and Barren”, meet at a designated location the first Tuesday of every month.

At their meetings, they discuss victories and more often, defeats, associated with facing a life of being barren. The format of the meetings is similar to AlAnon (although without the religion), where people introduce themselves to the crowd, talk about their history, describe their situation and end with the question: “Does it matter?”

For most of these women, they’ve moved beyond the notion that childbearing and breeding are important facets to their lives. “Does it matter?” is the leading question that was intentionally institutionalized as part of the structure in order to open a discussion about the need to bring more children into the world.

Heather Harken’s suicide struck the town deep. For several days, everyone drove around town with blank looks on their faces and the level of sadness was unique, despite the arrival of spring.

A few weeks had passed. The family had a small ceremony and the attendance was high, despite the Harken family not being very well integrated with the community.

However, a cloud still hung over the town like an April cumulonimbus, dark and brooding. Towards the end of a few weeks, the senior town representatives decided that it was time that some additional and very influential support be shown. It was decided that one of the senior founders of the MOMYS movement would be invited to Heresford to address everyone and try to bring back some excitement about the creation of God’s Army.
