"Here In Your Arms"
Clouds as white as snow slowly glide across the soft blue sky over the head of a lonely and confused young man standing atop a small hill. Off in the distance, the ocean waves crash upon the shore seemingly to mirror the crashing of emotions Arnold holds inside.
He has always felt that there was something missing inside his heart. A hole that he filled with a hope, a belief that he held onto all his life that they were alright, that they would return to him one day. As the months turned to years and years turned to decades, his hope faded allowing the hole to grow. An emptiness he sees reflected by the empty coffin on this humid summer afternoon in San Lorenzo. Barren though it may be, the presence of beautiful floral arrangements made up of an array of local plant life offsets the bleak outlook he is currently holding onto.
The conflicting emotions within him moving like waves of a roller coaster in his mind. There's a certain sa

Chapter 4 : Confessions
Arnold and Helga are sitting together at the end the dock sharing a bag of taffy while watching the sunset in the distance.
As the sun slowly begins to disappear behind the city skyline before them, the sky turns into a gorgeous cascade of deep pinks and purples. The once white clouds now yellow in color with a thick orange outline. The faint shimmer of the stars twinkling as they begin to dot the sky with the glowing moon gradually fading into view.
Helga peers over to the man beside her, the man whom she has loved for so long. Wishing this moment could never end, she resists the urge to pinch herself to see if she is dreaming or not.
The salty air fills their lungs and a cool breeze blows as their feet dangle above the water.
From the corner of his eye, Arnold can see the enormous smile on her face as she stares at him with a longing in her eyes that he recognizes as one he has been given only once before.
His memory recalls the glow of the fl

"Uuugh..my head feels like it was punched by Mike Tyson."
Helga slowly sits up from her bed and tosses aside the moist rag that was resting on her forehead. The piercing sunlight from her window feels like needles in her eyeballs so she quickly flings the curtains shut. Groaning and steadying herself, she peers over to her alarm clock and is shocked to find its three in the afternoon.
Upon standing and realizing she is only dressed in her bra and panties, she grabs a robe from her closet while trying to recall the events of the previous night. Everything is still a blur to her though. The only memories that come to mind are being pissed off that Arnold was so late. But there was something else. She knows it but can't put her finger on exactly what.
Her footing is still a bit wobbly as she exits her bedroom and walks to the top of the stairs.
"Mom? Dad?" she calls out but no response. Given the time of day, Bob's gotta b

The Voice Of Truth
"Finally!" shouts Helga in excitement as she sees its now closing time. Ten o'clock couldn't get here fast enough. She hurriedly counts down her register till, shuts off the main lights, makes a count of sold inventory for the day and runs to the back to clock out. This whole process normally takes up to forty five minutes to do but tonight she managed to do it in fifteen.
Bolting out the front doors, she quickly surveys the empty parking lot for any signs of her football headed adonis. Much to her dismay, there is no one.
"Where is he?" she stands there impatiently for a while, arms crossed under her breasts and her foot tapping loudly on the concrete. "He'd better not have forgotten me!"
Before long, it's nearly 11 o'clock. She lets out a large angry grunt and storms off, both feet stomping like an elephant's with each step. She manages to get about ten steps in when she is halted instantly by a terrible migraine. The throbbing pai

Chapter 1: Welcome To The Planet
The morning sunlight creeps in through the window, shining past the flowing drapes and finally resting upon the face of a sleeping Helga. She stirs as the beam warms her. Awaking with a smile, she turns away from the window to face her beloved Arnold. As her arm reaches around him, his eyes open to meet hers.
"Good morning, my love." she says.
"Its always a perfect morning when I wake up to see your gorgeous face."
"Helga my love!"
He takes her hand and draws her near for a sweet tender kiss. Their lips grow closer, her heart is beating wildly, she can barely keep still from the sheer excitement of the moment. Now so close their lips me-BZZT BZZT BZZT BZZT
Helga angrily slams her fist down on the buzzing alarm clock. Groaning as she rolls over in bed, pulling the sheets over her head to block out the sunlight coming in from the window.
"Just a dream...ugh!"
Out of aggravation, she throws the sheets off, gets out of bed an
