Carlo smiled wearily. Home at last, at the end of the week. He opened the door, swung it wide, and called out his usual, “Mi Amore! I am home!”
Somewhat unusually, this was met with a stinging slap across his face. Before the second one could land, Carlo grabbed the wrist it was attached to. “What the hell, Ginny?”
“You lying bastard. You’ve been cheating on me!” she screamed.
Carlo dropped his wife’s wrist in shock at the accusation, and got another slap for his inattention. This time he grabbed both wrists. “That hurt! But the accusation hurts more. I have ever been true to you, mi Carina.”
“Judy saw you last weekend. With a big-boobed blonde bimbo. She even sent me a picture! Let go and I’ll show you.”
Cautiously, Carlo let his wife go, keeping his hands up in a defensive posture. “She must have

Finally, she had it! Pam had promised to get her a bottle of ‘Perfectly Fitting Clothes’ for ages, and it had finally arrived. Now Eve could change herself to fit anything at all, and the possibilities were making her positively giddy. She’d bought an extra-large bra on the way home, and was hoping to...
“Adam? What the hell are you doing in my bedroom?”
Adam danced around, laughing. Her panty drawer had been upended, and he was wearing her best pair of pink satin panties as a hat. “It’s spring break! I’m celebrating.”
“Damn it, Adam. For the older twin, you can be *so* immature. Clean this up and get out.”
“Or what? You’ll pout and tell Mom? They’re not back until tomorrow.”
“Or... this.” She sprayed the bottle right at his head.
“Augh! What the hell was... What did you do?
Inky Mischief 1She came home from the marketplace grinning and showing off her new find, a pen with a glowing blue tip. As she demonstrated it on her sketchbook, it left glowing trails behind, and the tree she was drawing grew into the air, solid and real with paper for bark.
I stared in wonder, grinning as she turned toward me, brandishing the glowing device. A glowing blade from the back of the pen flicked through my shoulder, and my arm flickered into blueness then vanished. “Am I dependent on your artistic skills to return to normal?”
As she drew arcing lines away from my empty shoulder she grinned mischievously. “Who said anything about normal?”

“I really think this is going too far for a joke, Jonah.”
“Just boost me up to my window. I left it open a crack.”
The dark-haired girl pushed her glasses back up the bridge of her nose, and hefted the fuzzy thing that had just spoken. Once it was near the window in question, furry tentacles reached out and grabbed hold of window and frame. The window slid open, and the dark sphere of its body lifted up and slid through.
“Thanks for the Venn and the boost, Rumi,” called the creature as it waved from the window.
“You’re welcome. I think.” Rumi shook her head. “I don’t know how I let you talk me into this.”
“Because you love tentacles.” One of said furry tentacles dangled from the windowsill to brush against Rumi’s cheek.
Rumi smiled, and kissed the tentacle on the tip. “Don’t scare your sister too bad
Z's New Mask"Come on, dear, it'll be funny." You say as you tug at and readjust your mask in the mirror. You snarl, watching the lizard man mask mirror your actions perfectly. It really looks like it's a part of you, all the minute movements being expressed in detail through the perfectly sculpted scales. "Are you sure it won't damage it?" Your girlfriend pops her head into the bathroom, smiling when she sees you rubbing what used to be your nose. "Oh... enjoying it before the photo?" She giggles. "I... uh... coming right now." You give yourself one last look in the mirror, noticing how well the eye holes are cut out. No trace of your skin can be seen, only your human eyes show through your beastly visage.
You head to the living room, your prized bearded dragon lazily basking in the warmth of her heat lamp. "Sorry, buddy," you say as you carefully detach the lamp from the enclosure. "I need this right now." She looks up at you momentarily, contemplating you before going back to lazing about. Your
Trust Machines - Birthday SurprisePart 1 - Birthday
Tina stared at the two figures ducking their way through the gymnasium doors. They were mostly recognizable as her husband and his friend, but...
“Jerry? Really? This is the best you could do? You know what Tyrone wanted to see for his birthday, what the entire theme of this party is!” Her voice kept rising and rising.
Jerry sighed, and made his way through the door as best he could. “Honest, sweetie, we tried half a dozen times. The Venn Machines have no idea whatsoever what superheroes are. It’s like they have a blind spot about it or something.”
“Well, at least Karl is something vaguely recognizable.” The muscular green-skinned man grinned at her, and flexed his muscles. A bunch of the kids were starting to gather around hm, oohing and aaahing at what he was doing.
Karl grinned at them, and very carefully picked up the birthday boy and set him on one shoulder. Tyrone grabbed on to his hair, and grinned like mad
