“…and they all lived happily ever after, the end!”
    “Well what do you think Chris?” said Jamie.
    “Jamie, its nice, but why are all of your stories so ultra positive? I mean isn’t there some rule that all stories must have conflict, pain, and suffering?” asked Chris.
    “You see Chris many years ago I realized something. For years I had this set of books and graphic novels I kept around the house. You may remember them. There were called “The Adventures of the Wolff! With two ff’s?”
    “Oh yeah, who could forget Wolff. Didn’t that eventually become a tv series, a line of toys, a comic book and all that? Why in fact I remember hearing it had been turned into an Opera or musical or something like that, didn’t it?”
    “Chris, you’re right. They went wild getting ‘Wolff’ out there and into everybody’s mind. That is why I had to stop writing the Wolff series.”
    “What?” said Chris as his eyes bulged in surprise. “You’re joking right Jamie? No way, did you really write the Adventures of the Wolff, with two freakin’ f’s?”
    “Yes Chris, I hate to admit but it was I.”
    “But Jamie, why would you have regrets about that. That whole thing was huge? I remember some of the stories and the pictures you drew for it. Man some of those violent scenes were gruesome, and man, Wolff had some serious relationship problems. My favorite part was when he blew up that entire city and lost all his money because the bank he kept it in was in that same city he nuked! Boom! Aw, naw, my money! Ah-ha-ha, I’m remember all of that, man that was the stuff. Why in the world would you have quit writing the Wolff series? Wasn’t the money pretty sweet? And hey, I just heard they are making a movie of it. God, can you imagine all the nasty, horrific mess of Wolff’s life up on the big screen? I can’t wait to see that one!”
    “Yes Chris, I just sold the movie rights and have washed my hands of the ‘Wolff’ situation. I’m not sure I want to tell you why just yet though, you might not understand. I wouldn’t want to scare you.”
    “Yeah right, scare me? How?”
    Jamie paused for a moment and then replied; “Well you see I… nah, never mind.”
    “Come on, now you’ve got to let me in on this.” Chris demanded.
    “Well Chris, my own life at that time was not going all that well even with all the money I had back then. You see I had this kind of epiphany one day while writing what would become the last installment of the Wolff series.
    I was typing away that night on my laptop but had to stop for breaks much more often than usual. My right hand had been severely injured in a freak accident. As I was staring at the huge, will never go away, new scar on my hand, I suddenly remembered that… well… I…”
    “Yeah, get to it, you what?”
    “Well Chris, I had given Wolff a severe injury to his right hand in a freak accident just a couple weeks before what happened to my hand.”
    “Pfft, come on. Tell me you didn’t give up all that money because of some freak coincidence like that?” Chris responded with smurk.
    “Chris, you’re right I didn’t. It was only when I sat back and started thinking about a whole chain of freak coincidences. Where the horrors in the quote un-quote imaginary world of the Wolff (with two ff’s) seemed to have been crossing over into my own life with freakish consistency…”
