Lowenna part 11 (chapter 13)

A young woman awakes in a strange world of magic, the only clue to her past is one word Lowenna

Chapter 13 THE CULT OF HERATHH Lowenna stood outside of Vlad’s. What she wanted to do was go in, have another bath and recover from a late night and a hard run. Then she could check on Rique and make sure she was all right. “Just one thing to do first!” Lowenna said out loud, and she quickly turned and headed towards the fountain. As she circled it, she saw the lad she had struck in the...Read On

Lowenna Part 8 (chapter 10)

A young woman awakens in a strange land with no memory of who she is.

Chapter 10 A NIGHT IN VLAD'S Lowenna walked quickly back along the wide blue stone streets. There was just a touch of rain in the air and the temperature was dropping. The sun was just about set and both of Orkenza's moons were already visible defiantly showing themselves between the clouds. The larger of the two moons shone brightly, even in the twilight. It glowed illuminating the sky...Read On

Chapter 16 THE DAMAGED SETTLEMENT Leaving the inn through the side door, Lowenna looked around. The street looked almost as damaged as the inn. The fountain statues and bowl were smashed and water was just flowing down the street. Lowenna walked towards where the market had been but stopped outside of Mr. Valery’s shop. She wanted to go in but knew Eryn wasn’t there and didn’t know what to...Read On

The Belle of Catawba Street

Mel Brooks spoofs Nazis -- Jimmy Breslin, the Mafia -- I pick on the Klan

Warning: While supposedly humorous, this is a story about racists and includes two racial slurs. However, the “N” word does not appear in print, but it is unavoidably, in my opinion, there in spirit. -RdW- To Lamar Hardaway’s way of thinking, the three young men standing just inside the door to his cluttered work shed didn’t look good for much, most of all a Klan job. At...Read On

Gold Rush Fever Conclusion

Glimpse of the Old West

They sat around the table pondering the the future. Marshal Hagen finished his food, quickly drained his glass and stood. “I'd like to say that this was great meeting you all, but under the circumstances I think I'll postpone that. I better get back to my partner.” Tom said, “Wait a bit, Art, if you're not in a rush. We have a prisoner out in one of the outbuildings but he hasn't been...Read On

Of War and Peace and Mary Beth

Tired of war, he wanted life, peace, and Mary Beth

The smiling, long legged brunette in the photo leaned against the door of a familiar car. One hand held a set of keys against her freckled cheek while the other seemed to toy with the unfastened snapof impossibly skimpy white shorts. In between, an unbuttoned olive-drab, US Army fatigue shirt was spread just wide enough to give a teasing peek at the swell of her firm young breasts. The...Read On

The Cat's Tale

Let Sleeping Cats Lie

It all began with my person reading an article about cats being only semi-domestic, most would readily become feral if the occasion arose. “Ha, a lot they know about cats!” Thus was interrupted my peaceful after-breakfast sunbathing on the window seat in the living-room. “What do you mean?” I inquired. “I mean you are totally dependent on us, you could never make it on your own.” Now...Read On

How I gave a home to someone that was lost

I woke up, yawned, blinked and stretched out my arms. I was pleasantly surprised to feel the warmth of the sun streaming in through the window onto my face and body. "Well, this is a good start," I smiled to myself. "The weather's been so grey around these parts lately. I could use a little sunshine in my life." As I stretched out once more, my smile disappeared as I felt the empty space...Read On

Time with Gran and Da

I remember spending wonderful summers, holidaying with my great grandparents.

When I was a child, I lived with my mum, dad and baby sister. It was quite hard going, as dad had a stressful job in the police force and mum was mostly busy with the baby. So, I used to look forward to going to stay with my great grandparents. When we moved house (the first of many times as it turned out) and I changed schools, I was delighted because although it wasn't all that far from...Read On

Vietnam DMZ 1968

This is a short story that is the first two chapters of a book I have almost finished.

Vietnam DMZ 1968 - A Flashback It was over in less than a minute. The fog was mixed with the smell of gunpowder. It’s the kind of smell that gets up you’re nose - puts the hairs on end. Nick’s squad knew, when he threw out the white phosphorous grenade - that’s it - no more fire. A willy peter grenade will light an area up like a circus tent. Wait a few seconds more, for emotions...Read On

The past intrudes upon the present...

How I Met Your Mother: Love & Bullets Thursday, 9:34 am  His fingers fumbled with the lid of the bottle of water. Eventually, they managed to open it and pour the cool liquid down his throat. As Andrew Hargreaves swallowed, he noticed his wife watching him. “Save some for me,” she said. Andrew screwed the lid back on and handed it to her. “So, having trouble keeping up?” “Me?
