A Drabble – The Snore by Rebecca Besser

THE SNORE

By Rebecca Besser

Jim lay in bed beside his wife, waiting for her to fall asleep.

It didn’t take long. He silently withdrew the butcher’s knife from beneath the covers. He closed his eyes for a moment, opening them quickly when she started snoring.

Propping himself up, he raised the knife in preparation.

The creature’s claws gripped her pink lips, pulling itself out of her throat. Its green eyes and head followed.

Jim stabbed fast and hard, just like he’d practiced. His aim was true.

Collapsing back onto the bed, Jim sighed. He’d finally killed The Snore. Now he could sleep.

Instant Pot Nobiletin

There are a lot of versions of this recipe floating around, but I hadn’t seen one for the Instant Pot, so I tried it out and this is what I came up with. Feel free to play with it and tweak the cooking time to make it weaker or stronger. The versions I have seen elsewhere use crockpots or stovetop methods.

I’ve included a few links at the bottom that explains the technical aspects of the compound and what it might do to/for the human body.

**Disclaimer: This is a natural derived supplement and is not meant to treat or cure any disease.**

Instant Pot Nobiletin

*Nobiletin: A flavonoid isolated from citrus peels.*

WARNING: Consult doctor if you’re on medication that can be affected by grapefruit

Ingredients:

  • Rinds/peels of 2 grapefruits (organic preferred)
  • Rinds/peels of 5-6 organic lemons
  • Enough water to cover rinds/peels

**Alternate/Addition: mandarian orange and tangerine rinds/peels contain a strong concentration of Nobiletin and can be added or can supplement for other ingredients if desired.**

Instructions:

  1. Wash citrus (if not organic, with hot water, soap, and a scrub brush, or soak to remove any wax).
  2. Peel grapefruits and lemon, removing as much meat/pulp as possible. (You can make lemonade or grapefruitade (same as lemonade, but made with grapefruit juice) with the insides of the citrus to keep from wasting it, or juice it and keep in a jar for other purposes.)
  3. Place rinds/peels in the inner pot, pour in enough water to reach the top/cover the fruit without going over the limit mark.
  4. Put the lid on, seal, and cook on High Pressure for 35 minutes (longer if you want it stronger).
  5. Let stand to do Full Natural Release.
  6. Remove inner pot from Instant Pot and sit it somewhere to cool.
  7. Once cooled, strain out rinds/peels, and put liquid in glass jars.
  8. Refrigerate what you can use within 2 weeks and freeze the rest. (You can freeze in bags if you don’t want to do worry about jars breaking in freezer.)
  9. Take 2 Tablespoons in the morning and evening. (Start with partial and build up to make sure you have no negative effects.)

Change – You Are Responsible For You

Change – You Are Responsible For You

By Rebecca Besser

2020 has been a year where nothing is normal. The year where everything you know has been changed. The year where everyone has changed in some way. Nothing will ever be exactly the same again. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing… Change is how we grow, and not all change is bad. Even positive change is sometimes painful. (And no, I’m not talking about the “New Normal.” That’s bullshit.) I’m talking about spiritual growth, intellectual growth, awareness growth, etc.

Everyone has either grown or gone defunct because they were unable to grow, change, and adapt. There have been a lot of choices made on a lot of different levels.

I hope you’ve been one of the people who have grown; I know I have.

I’ve always been an outlier…someone who thinks for themselves and doesn’t follow the crowd. A loner. A weirdo. Someone who has always been seen as a little different. And I’ve always been okay with that.

I don’t want to be part of the establishment. I don’t want to be part of the system that does things just to do them when no one knows why. I’m good not being a part of “we’ve always done it this way” and “go along to get along.”

That’s not me.

That will never be me.

I’m not going to do things because people say I should when there’s no good reason. I use my brain and question everything all the time. This also has me learning and changing all the time, as well.

It’s clear the deeper we get into 2020 that there are a lot of people that do go along to get along and do what they’re told without question.

It makes me sad.

I’m sad because people aren’t using their brains. I’m sad because people can’t think for themselves. I’m sad people don’t question things.

Everyone should question everything.

Do research.

You are responsible for you, what you know, and how you respond.

No one else is to blame for your decisions. Just you.

You are responsible for yourself and your life.

Stop believing everything you’re being told on the surface. Because, as someone who has been doing a lot of digging, I can tell you that you’re being lied to. We all are. And we have been for a long time.

Dig, learn, grow, question, stretch, test, rebel… Do anything except accept everything you’re told as fact. Research what you think is true and what you think isn’t. Then, decide for yourself what you believe.

Because, again, you are responsible for you.

The Order by Rebecca Besser

THE ORDER

By

Rebecca Besser

 

I woke up and found myself in darkness.

They were all around me.

Their faces were missing, void below their eyes as if someone had peeled away their nose and mouth, leaving a void of rippling skin healed in disfiguring patterns.

They motioned to me in a come-hither way, beckoned me to join them, inviting and beseeching me to be like them, because they could no longer be like me. Their humanity had been stolen from them. Now…they were creatures of the order. Their breath and their smiles had been stolen, leaving them expressionless and barren of voice.

Their eyes were watery…emotional. Their gazes locked on me like I was the only thing of import. Their focus was unnerving; there seemed to be a desperation in their unwavering attention.

They beckoned more forcefully, their eyebrows dipping in the center, between their eyes, into a frown. Their pain fueled anger was like a thick fog in the air.

I shook my head no and took a step back, unwilling to give up my humanity just to appease them. I didn’t want to lose my breath or my voice. The order wasn’t worth it.

The order was based on false safety.

They had failed to see that until it was too late for them.

They moved toward me… Those who were once men, women, and children, now a faceless crowd of obedience. Their alliance was to lies, believing they were safe.

They didn’t understand they were the most at risk… The commander now knew they could be used at will, to whatever end suited the purpose, the order.

They no longer had a voice, after all. They could no longer say no.

I pushed my way through them.

They clawed at my face, my mouth, trying to force me to obey the order, trying to break me with violence and fear. They tried to keep me where I was at their mercy.

I broke free, running through the darkness, toward the twinkle of light off in the distance.

I ran, knowing they were at my heels, knowing the commander wouldn’t let them stop until I too obeyed.

They couldn’t catch me, unable to breathe—their stamina waned quickly.

I broke through the darkness to find a vast open space, warmed by the sun. I breathed deeply and smiled at the people who were there.

They smiled back; they too were still human, they too were free.

I wasn’t the only one who hadn’t obeyed the order.

324 Abercorn

by Mark Allen Gunnells

 

Brad Storm doesn’t believe in ghosts, but moving into the house at 324 Abercorn just may change his mind.

Best-selling author Bradley Storm finally has enough money to buy and restore his dream home. Despite 324 Abercorn’s reputation as one of the most haunted houses in America, Bradley isn’t worried. He doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Then strange things begin to happen. Objects no longer where he left them. Phantom noises heard from empty rooms. Shadows glimpsed from the corner of his eye.

Is his house truly haunted, or is there something more sinister happening on the property?

With the help of Bradley’s new boyfriend and a few friends who are just as intrigued with the seemingly inexplicable occurrences surrounding the infamous house, they set out to find the truth of what stalks the halls at 324 Abercorn.

Proudly represented by Crystal Lake Publishing—Tales from the Darkest Depths.
