Taken by a Highlander- chapter 6

"Sir If you could you get these chains off of me I would really appreciate it."

Rówann was not having a very enjoyable morning. Whatever it was that he was tracking, he knew it was not human. Nothing human could move through a place like this and leave barely any signs of passing. He was having to go at such a slow pace so as not to lose the trail that it felt like he was hardly making any progress at all. In the few hours, he estimated that he had barely gone a mile...Read On

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 5

“No, this creature is helpless and alone, I want to keep it! I think I'll call it Wigit.”

The next morning Ella woke up and yawned mightily stretching out her arms. She hadn't slept so well in a very long time. How she knew that, she didn't really have a clue, just that she felt good.  She sat up and looked around. She seemed to be in a forest of sorts and her bed which was under a large oak tree was made of grass and moss. As she thought about it, a small man carrying a pile...Read On

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 4

She knew that beast of a man would run her down.

Once horse and riders drew near the edge of the forest, they halted. Ella looked up at the wondrously tall trees. She had seen her fair share of forests in her travels, but nothing like this one. It seemed very ancient, and dark within. She shivered getting a sense of other worldliness. She frowned, wondering what kind of hazards could be in a Scottish forest? Maybe a few wolves? She shook...Read On

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 3

Ella blanched as his words became clear to her. “I believe I will claim you for my own."

                                        The Forbidden Forest   As they rode across the moors, Ella kept from freaking out by trying to figure out what the man's last words meant. If she could only picture them in her mind, then she would have a chance to decipher them. Meanwhile, the horse's gallop devoured up the miles. Every once in a while Ella tried to push herself away from her...Read On

Taken by a Highlander - chapter 2

Ella glared up at her captor and suddenly with her uninjured hand walloped him hard across his face.

Ella drove on the highway for a short while before sighting a gravel road that looked interesting. She turned onto the road and continued for at least forty-five minutes before she came to a place she thought would be perfect for her picnic. The view was spectacular. Purple blooming heather surrounded her on rolling hills. It took her breath away. Taking the basket, her book and a blanket...Read On

Lowenna 2: The Secrets of Light and Darkness, Chapter 32 (the end)

The Crystal shattered and Rique fell. What is going to happen?

Chapter 32, Bonding Erkut fell to the ground, and Nera who had taken to the air fell on top of him. Sudden pain flowed through their heads. Everyone else collapsed or grabbed their heads in pain.  Even Lowenna had to close her eyes and covered then with her hands, not knowing where the pain had come from.  It felt like someone had just thrust a red-hot poker through her skull. As the...Read On

The League of the Young and Supernatural (11)

Ch. 11 *Sakura* The drive back to Denjo’s hideout was odd, to say the least. We took several winding back roads, and once we entered a densely forested area, I gave up hope trying to figure out where I was being held captive. Ultimately, it didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Once we dropped off this Aejin into the dungeon, I was free to go. I had been instructed to keep...Read On

Lowenna and the secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 31

Run Rique, She is after you.

Chapter 31 The new hunter of the maze Rique was running as fast as she could, but Lowenna was faster.  The only advantage she had was her long or high jump.  Still, Lowenna was gaining on her.  She ducked as a pale pink ball of fire shot over her head.  She couldn't die, not like this.  She had to save everyone.  She had promised Callan that she would destroy the crystal and save everyone. ...Read On

Lowenna looked at Darcarial, is she lost?

Chapter 30, Lowenna Lost Darcariel had a big smile on her face.  She knew the Lowenna was hers now, no more resisting, no more running.  "Stay here Jibranz.  I'm going to look at my new toy." Jibranz nodded.  He was still worried that the Lowenna would fight, and try to kill his queen.  He was staying on high alert. Lowenna stood there with a vacant smile on her face watching her...Read On

YEAR 10 AG (AFTER GODS)

*The roaring crowd cheered as the gates opened and a lion came out. The lion slowly walked out, basking in glory as the crowd roared on. I watched in horror; I couldn’t believe the madness in front of my eyes. In the center of the arena was a young skinny fragile looking boy, he was chained to a cub on his left foot. He had a thin stick that was poorly sharpened on one end. It had bite...Read On

Lowenna and the secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 29

Lowenna is alone, her magic almost gone, and what awaits her on the other side of the door

Chapter 29 Other Side Of The Door Lowenna looked at the large imposing door.  It was the first one she had seen since entering the labyrinth.  She didn't want to go back, not through the room with all those dead bodies. She tried the latch, it moved, and with a strong push the door creaked open.   Lowenna froze.  There was a dead body in the corner, not a skeleton, but an actual body....Read On

The Damned: Chapter 3

The young blossoming and fertile second wife of my husband had succumbed to a mysterious fatality, and I was the only witness.   A hundred villagers surrounded us as we sat on the ground. Uliya’s mother wept violently on my far right, and four elders sat in front of us.  As I expected, my husband passionately vouched for me....Read On

Lowenna 2: The secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 27

Is Lowenna's first vision about to come true? The Hunter is after her.

Chapter 27 Hunted The mist was flowing through the stone paths keeping low, so it was hard to see the floor, and the air was cool and damp.  Lowenna was experiencing deja-vu.  She rounded another corner, nearly slipping on the slick floor.   Stopping for a second to catch her breath, she could feel her heart pumping.  She knew couldn’t stay here for long.   She was being hunted.   The fear...Read On

The Chronicles of Claudia Labelle -- Part VII

Claudia speaks with the Prior about her seemingly unnatural gift.

Entry IX – I am better now, with a much deeper understanding of what it is that I am afflicted with. After spending the past hour or two with the Prior, it seems he was quick to understand what exactly it is that I am going through. In fact, he seems to think more along the line of a philosopher than a theologian when we discussed my “gift” in depth. I broke rule two and eight...Read On

Chapter 25 A Child of Ebrus   "Wenna!"  Grilk shouted, but again there was no reply.  Talia was crying, and Rique was trying to convince Callan to let her climb down after her friend.

Lowenna is getting weeker by the second, can she hold on and save not only herself but everyone else

Chapter 24 Passageways and traps Lowenna had been told that Callan didn't trust her with a weapon. Which annoyed Lowenna, as she needed something to defend herself.

"No, you not, a lot has happened to you and your magic gets weaker every moment. We have to find...Read On

She had been here before, running through dark passageways, trying to keep ahead of the lion creature. Something was different. She kept getting glimpses of a beautiful dark haired woman. She knew this woman but couldn't place from where. "Run Lowenna," a dark echoing voice called...Read On

Moonlight Requiem: Part One

A young woman becomes addicted to enchanted faerie music

 Part One Wynn woke up to the sound of Clair De Lune resonating all throughout the big, empty house. It wound its lonely way up the stairs, through every hallway, until it came to rest gently in her ears, in her mind. Each note rang clear and clean like the flow of a river at night. She threw off the covers and sat up. Streams of moonlight poured through the window as if summoned as...Read On

He didn't like running. Orcs weren't...Read On

Chronicles of the Shadow Swords - Begin

Inspired by the Bleach manga series, but the storyline and characters are original

This story has no beginning and it has no end, merely one integral point – which for me was the moment I died – at which all things converge and loop only to spit out new chapters to the same story… and this is my chapter. Takeshita Ichigo His life at the orphanage had mostly been a good one; Abbot Gnu treated all the boys like they were the most precious gems to ever be placed in...Read On

BookBoy and the Library of Alexandria: After The End

He loved books. So did she. And that was how the world was rebooted.

Once upon a time, there lived a boy who loved only books. Comic books, textbooks, crime noir, Westerns, romance, classics, pop-science, esoterica, ancient philosophy and mythology. Trilogies, prequels, sequels, reboots, stand-alone, shared worlds. If it had ink and paper, he'd read it. And he had his favourites, oh yes – but Bookboy knew better than to judge a book by its cover. So he gave...Read On
