The man who cant cry 

Dillon robinson has a normal life. He is 27 years old. He owns a smal business.  He is not a genus but is very inteligent in many ways. To see him you would never think anything was up with him. He has an unusual dificulty. He has never cried. 

He has a very rare condition. He was born without tear ducts. He is medically incapible of crying. 

When he was born he did not cry. He was moving. He was alive. He was healthy . he just could not cry.he still developed langrege skills. He developed normally. He lived a normal life. 

It was not something that really came up. A lot of guys are enotionally detached any ways. He was able to hude this deficentcy quite easily. 

As a kid he went though a lot of test. When he was a baby the doctors were alarmed at first. He was closely monitored especially in his younger years.  He had a normal life. There was a dificulties.

When the beloved fanily cat was run over by a car,his parrents and siblings were devisated. He was stoic.his brother and sister were mad at him fo. Not caring.  His parents tried to stic up for him. 

At school dillon was riduculed by fellow class mates for not being afected by the death of a beloved math teacher who died of a heart attack. He felt strange and ended ckasd early. He went to the bathroom and died. A student found him.

The entire school was shocked and alarmed.  There were a lot of tears.yet dillon apeared to be totally unphased by it. 

All his friends saw him as cold and uncaring. He became isolated. He decided to withdraw on his own.he did not understand this. His parrents assured him that he was not a friek. He was not so sure. 

He went to colege. He got graduated 8th in his class. He started his own bussiness. He then staeted companion bussiness as well. He was not rich but he had a stable income flow. He was content. 

He tried to date in high school.  He was handsome. Usualy the first date went realy good. Then something would happen he came off as detached .he did not have much emphithy.none of his romances went very far. He got a bad reputation.potential dates were warned not to date him.  He withdrew from that as well. 

Colege was about the same. He had a brand new start. Soon his dates learned about him. He again found himself isolated.  He again saught the path of least recistence. He withdrew. 

He was not stable and successful. He kinda wanted companionship.  He was not lonley persay. He did want someone.  Who would date him? 

His business partner frank wanted to bring in a young women named ari. He was reluctent to bring her in. He was always reluctent to hire new compony. He wanted to run his conpinies on shoe string budget. His moto is micoscopic is too big we need to go smaller. Another moto of his was smaller is better. That was hie he was.

After meeting with her he was quite inpressed. He did relent and brought her on. It was a good move.she brought new perspective to the compony. A lot if reason for the sucess of the compony was because of her. 

He eventualy promoted her in the compony. She baught in to the compony. She became a right gand man. Frank decided to go on his own and she took his place.

At first it was a bussines relationshio only. Manny around them were convinced that that would not last foever. A romance was inevitable. 

One day she asked him out. He liked her. She was prety,smart funy.she had breathed new life into his operation. He liked her. He had largly given up on romance. He beleved that he was just not marriage material. 

“Ari! I realy like you. I think the world of you. I am vety flawed.  I dont beleve i am a sutible boyfriend or eveb husband.  I have to decline. “He told her.

She kept trying. He did relent. The date went great. Subsequent dates also went well. He decided to tell him the truth about him.”ari i have to tell you a secret about me!”he said. “Ok! “She said.

“I am incapible of crying. “He said.”what?”she asked. “Its is an actual medical condition.it is rare. It has a long name but i can give you it if you want to look it up!”he said.

She was expected that he had a dark secret.maybe he had a criminal record or drug ir alchole addiction or was institutionalized but no he could not cry.

“Why were you afraid to tell me?”she asked. “It tends to scare people off. I come off as cold,uncaring and unfeeling. “He said. 

It did not scare her iff.she never founs him cold or incaring. He eventualy perposed. She said yes. They got maried. Then she became pregnant. He was afraid the child would have his defecentcy.the doctors had no idea.

The day there daughter wa born.she had a healthy set of lungs. She definenly cried and thensome. He could nit be happier.  Kid number two and three were also fine. It seams it was an anomaly.  A fluke of nature. 

The end. 

I an not a doctor.  I am not a science expert. This is fantasy.  Im sure that i that i got a lot of medical stuf wrong. I just wanted to tell a stort.

Qurters of ben and kalera noris.

Kalera had falen asleep. She dreamed of being in sickbay. She and ben walked in hand in hand. “Mark its time!”ben said. Dr. Piper and nurse chepel got right to work. 

She went into labor.  The baby came out.”what going on?” kalera asked.dr. piper did some checking. “Im sorry. Dr. Piper said. She grabed on to her human husbend.

The images went to another time.she was on romulus. A few years erlier. She was younger. “I regret to inform you that the child did bot servive. ” the doctor said.

As the daughter of a senator and a sub commander in the star navy she was requured to be detached at all times and all circumstances no matter what.  There was no exceptions. That was how it was.

The baby was brought to her.she screamed. She woke up. “Lori! Lori! !”Ben said. “Whats going on? Where am i ?”she asked. “Your on the enterprise in our Qurters.  Your safe. You must have had a bad dream.”he said.

He hugged her.she held on to him.she was shaking. He held on to her. “Want to talk about it?” ben asked.  “Not really.  “She said going back to the cool personia she insisted in portraying at all times.

Her barefeet hit the floor. She put a robe over her nightgowan.she went into the kitchen area. He was waring shorts. He went to the kitchen.  “Computor cofe phanerian blend cream and surger with whip cream”she said. The cup materialized in the slot. She took her cup. “You want anything? “She asked. “No im fine. ” he said.

Planet qonos

Chancelor mukuret waw waiting outside the bedroom.a midwife was with his wife. She went into labor.he waited and waited. 

Then the door opened, the midwife came out. “Your son was born dead. “The midwife said. “The other child?”the cancelor asked. “The other child lives. It is a girl. Your wife is tired but is doing well!”the mid wife said.

He tried not to be abgery. He had two older daughters.he wanted a son. He wanted an  hair. “You may go in and see her.”the midwife said.

“Perhaps later. I am quite fitiged. “The chancelor said.he had no interest in seing her. She dishonored him. She failed to protect there son in her womb.she alowed his daughter to be born instead of there son. To him this was unforgivable.  He had no desire to see him. 

Mukaret decided to declare an empire wide time of norning.he would use this tregedy to garner syimpithy. Klingon society depended on strength. There stil was strategy. Klingon still tried to control publicity. A popular leader coukd use personal tregedy to advance ones agenda. 

Mukuret went back and forth on popularity.  Early on he had seemed to defeat the federation. The federation was able ro turn in around and recapture the area. Mukuret was able to keep power. No challenger could get the verious factions to suport them.he ganed popularity during the mass crises. He rewrote history.  In his version the federation played litle role in the crises.

He would use this to become more popular. It was cruel and ireverent. He did not care. He would never be seen as week.

Panic attack

Jack was the son of the pastor john rayburn. Jack was a bible colege graduate. While he worked as a grocery store overnight manager,he was the assistant pastor and youth pastor.  It was an unpaid post. He took it seriously.  He was well liked in the church. 

He kept quite busy. He liked to br buisy. He focused on ministry and his outside job. He was hard working and devoted. 

One Sunday he waa scheduled to preach in the morning service. He was getting ready for the service. The church was fairly smal.it was a good group.  They were a very close knit group. They were tradional king james fundamental baptis church. They sang hyims and had a piano. He looked around. Then he saw her. 

She was about five seven. He was five nine. She had dirty blound hair. She wore a dark purple almost blue dress. She apeared to be in her early twenties. She was there with a women he later learned was his sister and her morther. 

He had never seen them before.  He had no idea what brought them hear. Were they new to the area? Were they interested in becoming part of the church or simply curiosity seakers. His farther had a saying, there are two kinds of visitors to a church ,speed daters and those who might consider a courtship with the church.  You never know what category they fall into.he was curious about her.  There eyies met for a spilit second. He smiled at her. She halfed smiled then quickly withdrew. She terned away from him. He went back to getting ready for the service. 

He and his dad went over to them.”im paster john rayburn this is my son and right hand man jack. “The older raybern said.  “Hi im sandra greener. These are my daughters kristin and ashly. “She said. 

Both gentlemen shock there hand. The younger john shock her hand.she shock his hand quickly. She quickly turned away. Mostly the pastor engaged in small talk with the family mostly with the mom. 

At that moment they hardly said a word to eachother. Odd sense kristin would become very special to him. He would refer to her as Chrissy. They got off to a rocky start. That would not last foever. It would pass. 

He then went to the podium. The younger raybarn startred the service. He led the song service then he preached. 

He stood at the back of the chepel greating people as they left. He thanked mrs grener for coming. He told them that he hoped that they would return. He said goodbye to her two daughters esoecialy kristin.  She said goodbye but not much else. 

He had no idea if he would ever see them again. They did return that sunday night. He said hello to them.

They continued to come. He really wanted to talk to her more extensively but did not dare to.one sunday they had a dinner after the service. 

He decided to throw caution to the wind and decided to go talk to her.he headed to her direction.  He neared she was seated.ashly went to him.she head him off at the pass.

“May i talk to you in private? “Ashly asked.  “Of course.  ” he said. They went to a corner.  “Look jack may i call you jack?” she asked. ” of course.  ” jack said. “Jack kristin meens no ofense. She is not interested in a relationship right now. I know you meen no offense. She woukd prefer not to engage in for lack of a better term fratinization. You seam like a nice guy but she has been though a lot.she woukd prefer to be left alone.”ashly said.

“I totaly understand. I did not meen to be inappropriate.  I will back off. “Jack said. “Thank you. Again please do not take this personally. “She said. “I dont. I assure you. ” he said 

He got his food and went to a different table. They served lasagna witch was his favorate but he was not really hungery. He managed to eat a little.  

He wrote in his diery that day.”dear Chrissy i gues i misjudged us. I thought you were shy.i gues i precieved that they might be something between us. That was my bad i supose. It will be awkward for a while.  I will hournor your request.  I will stay away. I have no idea if your band will be lifted.  Perhaps we will laugh about it one day. I dont know. Most likly you will never read this.  I have no idea. ” jack.
