Guest post by: Desmond Kalish, protagonist from Noble: New World Order
Um… hello, world? Is that how people usually start these things? I don’t know; not much of a blogger. I wasn’t given a whole lot of context when asked to write this guest post, so bear with me as I fumble my way through it.
I guess I should start with the basics: my name is Desmond Kalish, and I am twenty-eight years old. Christ, this is already starting to sound like a Match.com profile. Talking about me is tricky. I can tell you that I’m a former police officer with the Charleston P.D. in West Virginia, but beyond that, most of my dossier is classified.
Noble: New World Order tells the tale of the most challenging year of my life. During my time as a cop, I dealt with my fair share of drug dealers, gang bangers, and murderers, but I’d never seen anyone like the Street Sweeper before. The whole city was on high alert with that psychopath on the prowl, and Charleston isn’t a place that scares easily.
I didn’t know it at the time, of course, but the Street Sweeper case was only the beginning for little ol’ me…
Meanwhile in Kansas, a man named Father Gibbard toiled away in secret on a plan to manually induce the Armageddon. I know, right? You’re probably thinking the same thing I did when my employers first told me, but I assure you, he’s legit. If you think that sounds farfetched, wait till you hear about his children. Yikes. Definitely not a family portrait JC Penney could capture.
A person can’t go through what I have and come out the other side unscathed. Even now, I don’t think I’ve fully processed the events I’ve witnessed. I’m thrilled to be where I am, don’t get me wrong, but I didn’t get here without experiencing moments of both triumph and loss. Although I live and breathe, those I lost along the way are never far from my thoughts.
For them, my work must carry on.
