Watchout! Mysterious Vanishing

On May 29, a man named Boris chewed the last pulpy bite of his overripe banana and dropped the peel on the sidewalk. Immediately afterward, he vanished in a puff of smoke. Jane was on the scene and happened to catch the aftermath with her phone camera. Her haunting image captures Boris’s favorite Giants cap, its inner brim still soiled with Boris’s facial grime, lying beside the scorched peel.

Some experts say that this confirms rumors that the peels have started developing sophisticated technology to broaden their powers. Their leaders have long craved the ability to attack rather than just lying in wait. Was Boris the first of many to come?

Watchout! casual creeper

Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether someone is being friendly or creepy.
This peel got a little too close for comfort on Hoover Street back in January. There was nothing obviously wrong, he was being perfectly friendly, but I still got a weird feeling…  he had no reason for being there, he was just hanging out on the sidewalk, alone, seemingly for no reason.

Watchout! Bad Vibes

Back in January, I ventured out of my home and noticed a new shop had materialized on the main avenue. I felt myself drawn with a mysterious magnetism toward its open, incense-scented doors and through its beaded curtain to the crystal-studded cave within. Helpful clerks in long, flowing gowns glided helpfully towards me, took my hand, and made surprisingly accurate statements regarding my aura and the mass of dark energy that has taken roost in my soul recently.

I emptied my pockets of money and filled them up again with quartz, lapis and amethyst talismans, and sipped from a complimentary goblet of a sweet tea with rose petals floating in it. After several hours in this jeweled room, my new friends bid me farewell at the door, but I was immediately accosted by this unsavory fellow hanging around outside. There was something dark about him –serious bad vibes, as if he held terrible secrets under that skin, and wished me great harm. Even the plants in the windowsill seemed to scream in warning as I passed by. I held my new crystals tight, trusted my intuition and got the hell away.

Watchout! Krazies on the Street

Last December, a local couple went on a date to a trendy restaurant near their house in Silverlake. They vented about work, bad drivers, and noisy neighbors over a carafe of house wine and plates of glistening chicken and noodles. After a couple of hours, they left the restaurant holding hands, feeling closer than ever. It was later than they thought – past the witching hour, and they had to walk a couple of blocks to their car. Dazed and sedated by the wine and salty food, they did not notice the eerie figures hanging out on the corner…until it was too late.
