Heart Block

Jim Stitzel

I dabble a little in a lot of things — writing, webcomics, gaming, photography, web design, music, and more. I write code full-time and words in the gaps in between.


The flow of energy was too much - for her and for me. It overwhelmed both our systems, the absence of her heart chakra causing a torrential disregulation of energy. The block that had been there had been torn away the moment I nudged it into place. It would take another, placed slightly askew, to stop the flow again. It needed to be done soon before the flow destroyed both of us.

With my free hand I pressed my thumb and index fingers together and focused. Then I slowly drew them apart, creating a new block. The energy flowing through me was distracting to being painful. But after three excruciatingly long seconds I had a new block, fully formed.

I moved to lock it into place, but she used her free hand to try to stop me.

"Sorry," I said through gritted teeth, "but this has to be done." I swatted her hand away with the back of mine, careful not to drop the block in the process, then quickly lodged it in her heart chakra, slightly out of place.

The flow stopped and her body disconnected once more.
