A Day Without Pain

A Day Without Pain

A Hatbox Short by Melanie E.

-==-

"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

 

by Dorothy Colleen

 

 

"When the Empire was in flower, the Weres came to fight. The Sea-folk were threatened, and The Dead ruled the night. The situation hopeless, the battle was as good as lost. Then the Silver Cleric came to save us, no matter what the cost.”

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.

TransGenderElla

TransGenderElla book cover

An old fairy tale turned on it's head;

All transgenderella wants is to be herself and go to the ball, but her evil stepmother has other ideas. When Transgenderella stands her ground, insisting that it's time to come out, she is torn down and left crying in her room as her two stepsisters are whisked away to the palace. With the aid of her fairy not-quite God Mother, Transgenderella is transformed into the woman she always was, but is that enough to bring her happiness.

Atalanta's Story Reaching Home

Guys it has been a while since I've posted anything so hopefully everything goes smoothly. Once again I want to think those that encouraged me by pm asking about Atalanta. I also want to than Ashleigh for agreeing to edit and help me with it. Today is my birthday so at least I'll remember when I started posting this story.LOL!

To recap a bit; Atalanta is cataloguing the wildlife on the Medawihla reservation for Fish and Game to keep their secret,secret. Mrs. Carson is glad Atalanta is off campus from Friday to Monday. Atalanta is glad to make some extra cash and avoiding trouble. Of course if they only knew... but that would be giving the game away.

Hopefully you'll enjoy this story.

Chaos and Order: The War Eternal Chapter 7

***********************

CHAPTER SEVEN

Aftermath

***********************

I sat cross legged in the basement of the safe house wearing the comfortable sweat pants and t-shirt I’d found in one of the many dressers filled with clothes. As I sat there I focused on the knot of power inside of me and tried to relax my mind and body. It was harder than usual because of all the things that had happened last night.

The Summertime Blues

Author's Note: This is an old story of mine which I self-edited using the great suggestions I been recieving. I will go back and edit it more. I want to see how well I was able to implement the suggestions which I got. Also I want to give a thanks to all the people who had help me in my writing.

The Will Chaser

When a solicitor's clerk arrives one evening with news of a legacy for an unknown relative, possibly his half-sister, Sam tries hard to help her inherit. If it had been a smaller amount, he probably wouldn't have agreed to stand in for her, but as it was…

The Wildcats - Chapter 10

Chapter Ten


No decision yet on whether there will be another Wildcats Weekend this week. Ask in the comments if you want one. There will be another episode on Friday for sure. It is Saturday and Sunday that we are unsure of: Dawn.

This series is written by Leslie Moore and edited by Dawn Natelle


Chapter Ten

Masks 48

He’s looking between us and he says. “I thought she was cute on the bus so yeah anything she’s good with.”
Mary Jane says. “Friday night?”
“Sure, I’m pretty sure mom’ll be good with it.”
My mind’s still running in wait! What! Circles with him saying her thought me...She...was cute on the bus.
Me...She...her…
They were still talking when second bell goes off and I’m just still pretty much super shocked and all.
He’s headed off looking at his school map and I’m looking at Mary Jane.
“What just happened?”
She looking smug hands...well fingers sort of hooked into her faux pockets and says.
“You my girl might just have a date for Friday night.”
I’m staring at her and she slips in and gives me a one armed hug.
“Not bad girl he’s pretty cute.”
I…
A date.
I’m not sure I’m even into guys but a date...to sort of feel...possible...like things and good things could happen for me.
M.J. passes me some tissues as I’m smiling and crying all of a sudden.

*And Now…

The Lucky Charm Chapter 7

The Lucky Charm

Chapter 7: A Second Journey Begins

I got dressed in Keara's clothes, for the most part they fit very well, though a bit tight in the bust. It seems that my
breasts were a little bigger than my nieces, but not by a lot, maybe just a cup size.

It was just about then that my phone started ringing, by the ringtone I knew it was my work calling. Realizing that I hadn't
called in last night that I wouldn't be coming in, I hurriedly answered the phone. "Hello?" I said.

Thundering Force: Chapter 06: “Emerald Dawn.”

Chapter Description: Chapter Six: The opportunity finally presents itself for Sidious. He puts his foot down and orders the one agent of darkness he knows whom can do the job, Count Dooku, to eliminate Padme. Though, cosmic influences have already started to take an interest in Padme and Mjolnir. And this battle will have far greater repercussions than anyone could imagine, with the battle possibly leading to a Emerald Dawn.

Magic of the Kingdom Book 2: Chapter 8

MotK 2.png

A month has passed, and Sarah's been enjoying life as Silvermist in the park, but can she handle life as a celebrity TV actress? She still gets nervous meeting "real" celebrities! And how will HRT affect her ability to play the role?

Soulmate or Soldier, Chapter 4

What is it you really want, a Soulmate or just a Perfect Warrior?

 

Chapter the Fourth

Where we get to see the aftermath of how things looked on Earth (also an assorted selection of Alice's weird dreams)

The Roads Are Calling, or It's A Carnie Life

I'm hoping to post parts of this story on a weekly basis, but life can be an interfering PITA as we all know.

**********

I woke up this morning feeling slightly weird, my nipples were sore and I felt vaguely nauseous; as far as I know, I hadn't rubbed them or anything, but they were standing at attention and looking bigger than they had been perhaps a few days earlier. I spent a few minutes in the shower, then dressed; once I was presentable, I joined the rest of the crew for breakfast in the hotel dining room. We'll hit the road after we eat.

A Longer War 69

CHAPTER 69
We didn’t see much of Pete for a while, and before I knew it Easter and its rush of tourists was on us. The older I got, the faster the years went, like water down a plug hole. Darren was looking at his approaching exams as well, so I ended up spending far more time on my knees in a boat than sat in the office. That bit was covered by Susie and Doreen, of course, a hand-painted name-plate prominent on one desk, but in the end I couldn’t put the hours in that were needed, as my knees simply couldn’t take it.

Office Bet by Melanie Brown now on Kindle

Harry thought he was just making a little joke, but the women in the office weren't laughing.
So they made a little bet and Harry would win if he followed the women's dress code for a month.
How hard could it be?

Masks 17: Part 3

Masks Seventeen: Part Five

by

Rodford Edmiston

"Yeah!" shouted Hickham, raising his arms and shaking his fists as the results from the election returns continued to come in. Responding cheers rang through the Structural Party hall. Objectively, Great Britain hadn't done badly in the Shilmek War, but the events had unnerved enough people to result in a vote of no confidence in the previous government and a call for elections. "Another win for our side!"

The party leader was a big man, much - but not all - of his size coming from a large amount of fat.

A Little R&R part 2


Starting at a new school is never easy, and the challenges are even greater when that school is Whateley Academy. And for two girls, Ribbon and Roulette, this is especially true.
