A Story A Day Challenge: Ruming Around

Here we are. Amazingly, we’ve made it through the entire year and my muse has stayed with me every step along the way on this challenge journey. More than that, all of you have played an intricate role in this as well (See? Bet you thought I made a mistake when I said ‘we’. 😛 LOL). Thank you all for your constant support. I hope you’ve enjoyed these daily stories as much as I have. With each passing year, we begin a new chapter, and I hope to see you all on the next leg of the journey.

Happy New Year, my friends! Hope 2016 brings us all what we desire and deserve. See you next year. 😀

Ruming Around

Ray took a sip of his egg nog and rum before sitting it on the end table between the sofa and chair. Licking his lips, he turned and locked eyes with the dog. “Don’t you even think it, dog.”

The chocolate lab tilted his head to the side and licked his lips.

Thinking he had things settled, Ray turned his back and reached out to turn the TV on.

When he turned back, his voice locked in his throat at seeing the dog drinking his rum and egg nog out of the glass. “Get away from there, you fu—“


About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
