Year End Bash - A Fuel Story

With Christmas around the corner, F-X looks to break in the festive season the only way it knows how

15th of December – Season 1 Teresa Koek held a hand in front of her face as she yawned, trying to keep her sisters from seeing her. She always yawned during hymns while in church. She didn’t know why. Actually, that was a lie. She knew why. It was because she personally found them boring. Of course, she didn’t dare tell Doris, or worse, Brenda this. Going to church every Sunday was...Read On

We have been worried about you," Dirk replied as he moved into the room and sat...Read On

With the next PPV just around the corner, 2 top contenders bid their claim on the F-X Throne

2nd of December - Season 1 Solo Magubane sighed as he looked at his watch, the minutes ticking away as he waited outside the clothing shop. Thinking now, in hindsight, he realized that it might have been a bad idea to agree to give this guy a ride to the Fuel Speedway. After all, weren’t all the other F-X racers supposed to be the enemy? But he couldn’t help it. He’d been raised to...Read On

Fuel Season 1: Episode 11: Stakes of the Derby

After hitting the boiling point last week, Kloof and Kieck lay their stakes for the upcoming Derby

13th of November – Season 1 The One Kilometer Derby: that was what Glen had called it last week, Jim remembered.

When he found out what it was, he was surprised to find that the term worked well for their upcoming...Read On

Hallow's Eve - A Fuel Story

The 2nd ever Formula-X PPV starring the racers of Monday Night Fuel

27th of October – Season 1 Glen laughed. He was currently looking at a sheet of paper that was riddled with columns of numbers, but he was currently looking at the one right at the bottom. It was the sum total of money they had made on pay-per-view buys on the Formula-X streaming service. It was higher than the ones for the previous pay-per-view: Arbour Games. Glen found this...Read On


Fuel Season 1: Episode 8: The Cursed Conundrum

Fuel Season 1: Episode 7: Burning Bridges

On Monday Night Fuel, friendships die hard and betrayals are a way of life...

14th of October – Season 1 Penny Potgieter had never really had many friends. She never needed them. Growing up, people had come to call these ‘trust issues’ as she never seemed to find ones that she could get along with, at least after a while. One way or another something would part them, bring them to differences of opinion, have them not see eye to eye. Instead, Penny had...Read On


Fuel Season 1: Episode 6: Touched by Ingelosi

Last week saw a love affair get sensationalized. This week, a racer tells misfortune to take a hike

7th of October - Season 1 Touch Mkhize had never been one for believing in luck. He didn’t believe in divine interventions or any other such. What you see is what you get.

Like adrenaline-filled racing action? Then don't miss out on this one.

30th of September - Season 1 Moodswing swore. They were behind schedule. The event was set to start at 6 pm and his first two racers were nowhere to be seen. A bead of sweat travelled down his brow as he looked. He looked at his watch again: 5:50. Dammit , he thought, where the hell are they ? He looked up and saw Penny Potgieter and Brenda Koek. Well, at least they're here . They...Read On


Fuel Season 1: Episode 5: The Family Man

The 1st PPV might be behind us but the aftermath continues only on Monday Night Fuel

30th of September - Season 1 Heroes didn’t lose when it counted most. That was how all the movies went, right? Back in the dark ages, the fairytales always had the bad guy bite the dust in the end. So, if that was the case, then how the hell did he lose to Jim Kieck at Arbour Games? Just as John Kloof contemplated his failure from last night, a voice boomed on the P.A. system. ...Read On

When you play with fire, you're gonna get burnt... or will you? Find out tonight

23rd of September - Season 1 Bang! The slap stung, sending searing pain through his face. But as Jim Kieck stood there on the receiving side of this “assault”, he couldn’t help but think, okay, I deserved that one . He wanted to smile at the turn of events but didn’t. He knew better. He’d been here before and things usually went smoother if he acted just as disappointed in the turn...Read On

It's Week 3 in the Fuel Speedway as the 2 claimants to the F-X Throne butt heads

16th of September – Season 1 Thawn Oberhauser had never been accused of being the nicest person in the world. And there was a reason for that: he never tried to be nice. Nice people finished last. That wasn’t just a nifty catchphrase for Thawn, it was a way of life. Being nice was a weakness. It allowed people to take you lightly. Thawn was a businessman by day: born with a...Read On

Mercenary meet the parents

Mercenary meet the parents

Mrs. Bucannon appeared to be a sensible person. She wore a simple gown and tasteful jewelry. If she wore makeup, I couldn't tell. She was a blond version of Grace, and her icy blue eyes were looking at me strangely.   A pair of screaming females met Grace at the entrance to the parlor and whisked her off for girl talk. I breathed a sigh of relief as they left the room. Contrary to...Read On


How To Romance Your Magical Mercenary

I stared at the old church. The white walls and stained glass had stood the test of time. I was not happy to see the loaded parking lot. It only made the job more complicated. Add a "just married." sign on the back of the limo, and you have all the ingredients for disaster.  Not that disasters are foreign to weddings, the groom can go missing, or the bride gets cold feet, and...Read On


The Last World - Part One

Two people, one life

To be or not to be that is the question, that ran through my brain. Could it be vaguely obvious killing myself because of this hell land? What I was implying was that Mother Nature decided to throw a tantrum which was primarily to cause an unavoidable death to the whole human race. My helpless legs trembled uncontrollably, making me collapse onto the dead, neglected...Read On

A rude awakening

Todd awoke on his back in a puddle of beer and broken glass with his ears ringing and his vision blurred. He laid still, watched the ceiling fan spin lazily without seeing it, and thought about nothing. A few seconds passed and he sat up. He closed his eyes tight and waited for the room to stop sliding around, the colors to stop smearing. Finally, his eyes came open, focused, and looked...Read On


Happiness Happens

The sister of the girl you loved loved you, so the girl you loved wouldn't love you.

  about 1600 words     James   Happiness Happens by James Foley   Martin Trent remembered crashing that Iraqi stone farmhouse—past midnight, March 2016. Inside, tapestries draped those stone walls. Four men: two at a table and two on a beat-up green sofa. Rifles? Low-voiced preparations for rocket-grenade strikes against Government forces? Like that? No, it shouldn’t have been...Read On

The Baron's Quest

Erika is forcefully taken back to the 15th century by a time-hopping Baron.

PROLOGUE DRAGO SAW THE two Americans from yesterday up ahead. They had their backs turned to him, as they stood at the base of a large medieval wooden gate that led into Predjama Castle. His shoes shuffled upon a smoothed-by-time gravel path that led from Predjama’s only local gostilna, the Požar, all the way to the castle's front gate. The Americans turned around almost in unison to...Read On


Emerald Evolution

Her eyes were green.

Her eyes were green. There was no denying that the woman sitting opposite was attractive. Her dark hair fell carelessly on her shoulders and framed her lean face. She was of a thin build and had spotless golden brown skin that looked as smooth as silk to touch. Her thin, closed-lip smile indicated that she was approachable and kind. It was her eyes that hypnotized him, though. They were...Read On
