**************
Outside Dressing Room 17, the Security Chief straightened his tie and smoothed out the wrinkles in his pants as best he could. He was nervous. Summoning up some of his famous resolve, however, he reminded himself that “The King of Rock and Roll” was a man just like any other, and knocked on the door.

“Who is it?” The King asked, in his unmistakable West Texas drawl.

“Pressley. Aaron Pressley. From Pinkertons. I’m in charge of security here tonight,” the chief said.

Stony Hill, Florida, 1964

The security chief stood in the dark and wondered how his life had come to this. Not that it was a bad life, mind you, but he’d aspired to much more once, and everything had seemed so plain and certain in front of him once, with the strange logic of dreams it had all made sense. Then things had changed - he was never quite sure how - and his grand design for larger things got derailed. Now, here he was, an anonymous joe working an anonymous job, standing all alone in the dark. And it wasn’t even a permanent job at that, just a temp gig providing overflow security for the great big dedication cavalcade. He wondered - not for the first time - how his life might have gone differently if the breaks had gone slightly different for him.

ORIGINAL FICTION: "What Price Pornography?" By Charlie Starr (2009)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Imagine that, when God made the heavens and the earth, He made several inhabited planets. Perhaps on some of those worlds, the “Adam and Eve” never fell. Perhaps on others there was a first sin that brought ruin as it did on our world, and God became a human being (or a Rigelian or Vulcan) on everyone one of those fallen worlds to save them as He did us. And maybe on one of those worlds everyone actually listened; they became that world’s version of Christians and established a vibrant and holy culture planet wide.
