No good deed

A halfling is suckered into being the unhappy host to a group of adventurers

“Ugh, Cursed Red Fangs!” She peeked out from behind a rock. Six or seven rust monsters stalked the trail ahead of her. This was the only way to the goblin’s camp. She knew she didn’t have any choice but to continue, and the goblins certainly knew that, too. She reached behind her back and tugged at the straps holding her armor on. It would be easy to pass them, as long as she stripped off...Read On


Truest Truth

I have an obsession with the truest truth. I don’t remember where I first heard the phrase, but it was years ago. It was one of those snippets of conversations you overhear that grabs you by the chin and forces you to think about everything that’s ever happened to you. Who knows what that conversation meant to the people who uttered the words that changed me? Maybe it was just a way to fit...Read On

Long Distance Love

Just some thoughts about how love blooms in the weirdest of ways.

Being in a long distance relationship is difficult. I hear people complaining about having to go to the shops for their beau, grumbling that the milk is in the wrong place in the fridge, laughing and holding hands together, and I want that. I’m envious of them because that’s all I want. I want the good, and the not-so-good. I just want to snuggle with Aria or exchange a knowing look. It...Read On

As the other villagers began to crowd around the immense assemblage of...Read On

Amongst the Kingdoms Ch 5

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow combined in an era long forgotten but yet to be experienced.

Everyone needs some kind of sign to help them believe everything is going to be all right. Everyone looks to the sky; to some deity. The funny thing is there is something out there and no matter how much we cry out it whispers back that it didn’t create us in order to fix everything wrong with us. He gave us the ability to cry…to feel pain because he also gave us the ability to heal those...Read On


The League of the Young and Supernatural (7)

A supernatural organization founded by rogue aliens fight to protect the human race.

Ch. 7 *Sakura* Morning came after seven torturous hours. I barely slept. The guest bed was insanely soft and comfortable, but I was too stressed to give it a chance. I had lied on the floor all night, bouncing back ideas as to how I would go about luring an Aejin anywhere. They were sly, manipulative, and hard to identify. They tricked you - it was hardly ever the other way around. The...Read On

Whoosh, Whoosh

Whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh. Quiet. So very still, all around me. Nothing stirring. Dark. So dense, the atmosphere. Hard to breathe. Nothing to see. Can't see. Can't hear anything. Whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh... Blood, rushing through my veins. In my head. In my ears. Hearing it. Stirring. Not stirring. No feeling. None. Arms and legs dead. Dead weight. ...Read On



It's that time again

“Have we got everything?” “Yes.” “Are you sure?” I roll my eyes. I’m the Queen of packing. Of course we’ve got everything. Huffing, I recite the list - “Clothes, swimming kits, first-aid kit, towels, games, phone chargers, food, toilet roll, wellingtons, waterproofs and wine. Oh, and jumpers. Lots of jumpers.” “Do we need them in August?” “We’re staying in a caravan...Read On

"Victor is a big, big Puerto Rican guy with more charisma than...Read On


Dancing Into Old Age

She gave me a spontaneous hug. Then went on pointe. We were warming up for rehearsal for our all-dance show. I was surrounded by girls. And a few young ladies. She was a young lady. She'd trained enough to be in pointe shoes. That took time and training and dedication. Silly child. I was still taller, when I went up on tiptoes in jazz shoes. I can't go on pointe. Most men don't,...Read On



Christmas ornaments always come with memories attached to them.

The Christmas tree was up by the first weekend in December and fully decorated by Sunday night, just before prime-time TV, but all feelings of accomplishment faded when Renfield the cat jumped headlong from the entertainment center onto the top of the tree and rode it down like Slim Pickens riding the A-bomb in Dr. Strangelove, a movie Bob loved enough to have viewed multiple times (Karen...Read On

Dancing.

Sadly, no matter how much we may...Read On

Before and After

Within the first week after I took delivery of my new car, I stepped in gum. It got on the carpet. Not on the mat, but on the carpet just beneath the door. I was upset. I got most of it off, but there was still a mark on the light tan carpet. It was a pretty car: diamond white, with a light tan interior. My favorite is white, with a light grey interior, but the last two cars I ended up...Read On
