"It's the least we can do."

That's what they had said when they had come into his hospital room, clipboards in hand and curious, though not unkind, looks in their eyes.

It was natural for those who were healthy to be curious about the dying after all, and that was exactly what he had been doing, slowly and agonizingly, for the last three years.

It had started out innocuously enough, with a twinge in his temple when he would stand up or turn his head too quickly. The twinge had turned to a spike, and the spike into a burning lance, piercing his head with every movement.

For years he had devoted his life to becoming one of the most promising young talents in the computer technology world.

He felt it somewhat ironic that he would die not being able to stand looking at a monitor for more than five minutes without a morphine drip in place.

Quest for the Silver Cleric

Quest for the Silver Cleric

And when the troubles returned, the Sea-folk reached across time and space to find a very special person, someone both male and female, to find to rid this strange world of darkness, oppression and misery.

Danica finds herself in a strange world with new languages, cultures, personalities and challenges on a quest to find The Silver Cleric.

WildFire Chapter 8

Richard had met Sasha at her storage warehouse and they built a gauntlet of traps and illusions to have fun with the kidnappers they were going to lure here. That had taken most of the morning and by lunch time they were hungry. Sasha and Rose rode with Richard so they couldn’t be seen by the kidnappers. Sasha wanted them to come to the studio so she could put part of her plan into action.

Tornado missed me

Author: 

It was a mile south of me. Killed one, several injured, destroyed a power sub station. Elk City was without electricity. Total blackout yesterday and last night. All critical services were running on emergency generators. This particular monster started over near Shamrock Texas and came our way. Impossible to see by the storm watchers as it was wrapped in rain most of the time, leaving a debris path in its wake.

Be Careful of What You Wish For Chapter 2

“Well not exactly what I told him to do.” Titanis had been watching Freddy since he got home. She wanted to help him when she saw how his father tossed him outside on their lawn still dress in the lingerie he had put on.

“You know, you could had stopped that Ti.” Shayla was a little disappointed with her wife.

The Cat In The Cradle Chapter 10

Rebecca and Kat were the first ones to come around. Their heads felt like someone had used them to play drums on. Rebecca was still blurry eyed, but Kat was totally aware of her surroundings. A very angry feral growl escapes from Kat’s throat. Rebecca could sense that Kat was very pissed. As her eyesight cleared, she could understand why now. They were locked in some sort of large cage. All three girls were sealed in some sort of clear glass chamber that had hoses going to it. There was some sort of black cloud moving around inside the chamber.

The Spanish Flower Chapter 14

Don Juan Carlos got in late after coming from his meeting with Jack down in Mexico. Jack had sent him pictures showing the death of the Cartel leader and the destruction of his crops, building and everything else he had. He even showed the picture of his head on a stake right where the road went into the cartels compound. Juan leans back in his chair and thinks about how he wanted to explain to his daughter how he didn’t know about her till recently. He had one more thing to do before he turned in for the night.

Chapter 5.
– I –

I stared at the girl for a long while, then changed my grip on the railgun and held it aloft by its dorsal handle.

This freed up my left hand that I then used to palm my face.

From behind my palm, I said, “Sorry, would you say that again.”

“By the way, you’ve really levelled up.”

Ah, she ignored me.

Lowering my hand, I regarded her through lidded eyes.

By her tone and the expression she wore, it didn’t sound like praise.

Be Careful of What You Wish For Chapter 1

Freddy sighs as he stares at the statue of Athena at the Parthenon Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. He had skipped school again to come and see the statue that he has told his deepest darkest secrets to. He so much wanted to be a girl, but had been born a male. He also wishes that Athena was his mother, instead of the one he has now. His birth mother had died from cancer and his father had gotten remarried.

WildFire Chapter 7

“Well, we have your stage look now. It goes well with Sirens look. Now we need to come up with a name for you.”

Dusk and Sasha were standing before Rose looking at the look Dusk had created for Rose when she performs on stage with the band and next to Siren.

“Let’s see. We could play on her name like Thorny Rose, Silver Rose, bumble Rose…” Dusk had a mischievous look on her face when she says that.

“or Irish Rose, Wild Rose, Fire Rose?” Sasha walks around Rose and stares at the costume/stage clothes and Rose’s platinum blonde hair and amber eyes.

“Clio?”

Another Parable

Once upon a time, two Buddhist monks were walking along after a horrendous thunderstorm, marveling at how nature could be, in one instance, so tranquil and beautiful, yet in another, so violent and devastating. As they were walking along the path, they soon saw the wood bridge spanning a fjord had been washed away, leaving little way to cross the stream except to wade in the swiftly-moving water. As they were removing their sandals to do so, they noticed a young woman, heavy with child, struggling to ford the raging current.

Never Pull on the tail of a Wolf (revised) Chapter 15

Jack covers up a yawn as he drove from the private airfield back towards his ranch. He had just landed a thirty minutes ago and had gotten in his hummer to drive back to the ranch with Chaos. Both were jet-lagged and just wanted to get home. Jack pulls up to one of the convenience store near his ranch and parks. He was still feeling tired and could use a cup of their cheap coffee.

Being Different Isn't So Bad Chapter 4

It’s been a month since August came to live and work for Rebecca. The first thing she had done, was take her shopping to get the clothes she wanted to wear. She made sure she had all the proper undergarments and clothes she could wear to go out to eat in, work and play. She treated her to a day at the salon and introduce her to a friend of hers that has been doing her hair and nails since she was a teenager.

Gun Princess Royale - Book 2 - Ch4. (Part III)

Draft release. Apologies for any mistakes. The final release will be more polished. That's a promise.


Chapter 4.

– III –

I came to a halt, and half turned around.

The zombies had stopped making that disturbing wailing, and I took that as a clear sign that something was afoot.

Was the Gun Queen making her move, or was Tabitha toying with us again?

Learning to Change - Part 2

Chapter 2

“What is that?” I asked worried about the flash I just saw.

“Nothing, just a photo, you look very beautiful in that dress” She answered.

“Please erase it, I don’t want anyone to see it”

“Don’t worry, I’ll keep it just for me, I won’t show it to anyone” She said smiling.

“Aren’t you angry?”

“Just a little, you should’ve told me you liked girl’s clothes before, I could have lend you some” she said kindly. I was a little confused, I thought she would be mad.

Being Different Isn't So Bad Chapter 3

Rebecca was feeling down and sad that her father might die in the next three months. Lev had tried to make her happy and she appreciated it, but it didn’t help any. Rebecca’s nose start twitching as does her ears as well. Her nose was picking up a ripe body odor smell. She heard some noise coming from behind her. Rebecca stops what she was doing and turns around to see who the person was.

The Life Of An Angel Chapter 7

Angel smiles as she snuggles closer to Carol. She was resting her head on her right shoulder and her hand was resting on her breast. Carol’s arm was wrapped around her as they slept close to each other. The two of them had made love most of the night and she had enjoyed every minute of it. It had been a long time since someone has made her feel like she did last night. Carol had touched her in places that the men she had slept with had never touched. Angel closes her eyes and let herself drift off to a peaceful sleep.

Arista is.. awake [5.6]

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Ellie having fun babysitting Alice,
Hannah takes a stream of interrupted naps
(none of them by choice),
and Arista has unreasonably large breasts, apparently.

Get ready to strap in again folks! The countdowns started and we're in for a bumpy ride!


The Difference Between Heaven And Hell

I heard a story the other day, and I thought I'd share it with everyone. I'm not entirely sure, but I think it may have come from an old Ann Landers column or something...

The Difference Between Heaven And Hell

A devout man went to sleep one night, and dreamed that he was face to face with God.

Chapter 4.

– II –


Nothing had changed.

Though I wasn’t the Ronin Kassius of old, I was still dancing on someone’s palm, except that I’d leapt from Clarisol’s hand onto the Gun Queen’s.

Palming my face, I brought my mirthless laughter to a hasty end.

“Nothing’s changed….”

“What?” Tobias asked.

WildFire Chapter 6

Sasha had woken-up early and was drinking her coffee and reading the news on her tablet. When she notices, Rose waking up.

“Morning sleepy head.”

Rose looks around trying to get her bearings. She remembered crying herself to sleep after telling Sasha what happened to her, but she couldn’t figure out how she had gotten into Sasha’s bed.

“Morning.”

Rose stumbles out of Sasha’s bed and notice she was wearing a nightshirt that came down to her ankles. It was just a plain purple nightshirt.

With one foot planted against the foot of the door, I kept it open while hefting the large Saburota in a shooting stance, the weapon’s stock pressed against my right shoulder.
