Introduction This is the story before my second millennium story. When I started on Vocal I never expected to get anywhere near two thousand stories but the one after this will be number two thousand.
Introduction: In the vast landscape of anime, few series have captured the hearts of viewers quite like "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba." Beyond its breathtaking animation and intense battles, the series has resonated deeply with audiences due to its portrayal of the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. Through the characters of Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado, "Demon Slayer" showcases the power of love, trust, and unwavering support between siblings, inspiring viewers to reflect on the importance of these relationships in their own lives.

Addiction - Chapter II
A second chapter? Yes, why not? We don’t always get them in life, but I can certain save one here and see how far back I can go with my story.
To Tell Or Not To Tell
I first wrote this novella in five parts for the Confessions community where it did not get a lot of reads. I was hoping it would do better in the Chapters community so I had it moved here. And now I am creating an index story so that all the parts can be accessed in one place.
How much of your body change every year
HOW MUCH OF YOUR BODY IS NEW EVERY YEAR Not tethered to the calendar, there may indeed be some validity to the notion. Consider when the body generates new components through the regeneration of the liver after partial donation or the unexpected growth of a new spleen. While humans may not possess the ability to regenerate lost limbs like certain animals, our capacity for self-renewal is more extensive than commonly recognized. This natural regeneration can occur organically or be guided with intent.
Café Conversation (A Play)
Note: I wrote this some time ago, wondering if I would ever get it performed, or find a space for it anywhere. I think there is a spot for it here.

Coffin Money - 8
Day 17 at home As promised, Andrew came to visit his grandma again. She became even more thin and fragile in the five days that he didn’t see her. He pulled all his strength not to break down when he entered Sarah’s bedroom.

Day 10 at home Andrew came for the first time since Sarah was moved home. He visited her at the hospital once and couldn’t hide the shock of seeing her like that when he went into her bedroom.

Day 4 at home Sarah’s knees gave away in the shower. David heard her collapsing on the floor and crying out in pain. He was now staying with her full time, having taken an unpaid leave at work while Anna was working on getting a hospice nurse for Sarah, who was getting weaker by the day, continuing to lose weight and strength in her limbs.

Day 1 at home When David and Anna brought Sarah home, the first thing she said when David wheeled her in a wheelchair was, “Oh my God, what’s this stench?”

Day 7 at the hospital David came from work to visit his mother and one of the nurses told him that she first verbally abused and then slapped her on her wrists as she was changing Sarah’s sheets.
