A Pair of Conniving Witches

"So let me get this straight. " Chole said looking over the forged documents. One had been recently printed in London, and looked new, but Cytheria had gone back two centuries to London to have it forged with the Royal Society's official script. The other was much older or looked much older. She had it written in the 10th Century. It was basically an additional letter to be added to...

From The Annals of Besh, Part III

[[Karla is back in the secure room of Szechenyi Library having again signed out The Annals of Besh. It would be nice if she could just photo copy the book, but rules are rules, so she goes about copying the pages she wants on her note pad, knowing the last section she wants from the book is going to have to wait till tomorrow because lunch lasted so long, but at least she has this before...

From The Annals of Besh, Part I

A Night Tone

A Night Tone She never comes where I am, I miss her if she does. In the darkness the clouds race. The moon makes for shadow. She never comes where I am, Would want her if I could. The winds cold, my hearts bare. And the night sets the tone. She never comes where I am, And I’ve searched most my life. She’s out there, she’s calling. I want to bring her home. She never...

A Blue Rose

A Blue Rose A blue rose reclined forlornly Among the flagstones in my garden Fragile and sad, caught in the cold A gift from a shadow A mystery who speaks to me If she found it or made it, she didn’t say She packed it most carefully Then tossed it high to the ether Over old rounded mountains Down to the sand hills below Where I caught it, I did Kept it safe ever since In my garden,...

One old, one middle aged and the last young. They claimed to be sisters. If that was true that would be very weird considering the age differences. But that is what was said. What else was said of the...
