    Fleeting I was just a confused grocery boy when I found the old man. I rushed back out to my car, grabbed my cell phone and dialed 911. Once the police arrived we re-entered the house. There were still clips of snow from my boots on the front rug as we entered. The whole city had been without electricity for the last two days, but power was restored as I dressed for work early this morning. The local sheriff, we all called Enis the p****, walked into the room and the echo of his boots against the cold floor made me shiver. He checked for a pulse, and then lifted an envelope from the f
  2. Passage of a Soul Prologue The moon looked fuzzy as I gazed into the star lit sky. The edges weren’t as crisp and distinct as I usually gazed upon, and I didn’t feel the usual compulsion to try and see deeper into each bent shadow. A scattering of clouds was passing overhead, and by their shape, I knew the weather would not interfere with this eve’s merriment. My mind drifted a moment as the hiss of waves against the rocky shore flooded my ears. This night was as hypnotic as any I could remember in the past, and I lost myself in the swell of the sea and the feather-like touch of cool
  3. Chapter 1 The Pact The thunder echoed in the distance as I sat at my computer. There was another storm brewing and I knew she’d be by my side. It’s what we did. Tornado, hail, or otherwise, she and I would sit together contemplating life under the wood pavilion as we watched the white flashes of light draw closer. “Ahhh come on. You’re no fun!” Those were always the words that drew her to me as I begged for company. I hung up the phone and tried to clean as much as I was able. I didn’t want my best friend Jeana to see what a total slob I really was, and it was just the motivation

    Lucif Chapter 2 & 3 The Druid Chapter 10, 11, 12, & 13 Midnight’s Rainbow Chapter 3 & 4 Fleeting Chapter 1 Promise Forsaken Chapter 1 Passage Of A Soul Prologue My deepest apologies for not having kept up with this. I've been distracted (I've got a boyfriend! WOO HOO!) Either way, it is no real excuse and I apologize to my readers. Here's hoping the bevy of updates makes up for my lack of attention to this great site. Take care everyone and I hope that you all have a wonderful new year!
  5. Chapter 4 Wings of Light For the first time since my arrival on this planet I didn’t know where the sun lay in the sky. Ever since I was thrown from Haven, and until what seemed only moments ago, I had always felt the sun searching for my flesh. There had always been that subtle tug in the universe seeking to punish me, and now it was gone. As strange as it might seem, I mourned the loss. It was familiar, and one of the few constants in my reality that never wavered. Now it was gone. I wanted to go to my brother, but knew the druids would return, and decided that venture could wait for
  6. Chapter 3 Wings of Hope “Well met Asher.” Anthoni bent at the hip, and gave me a curt bow. I plunged into his mind and swam through his thoughts. He struggled against the intrusion but failed in the attempt. Pulling back from his mind, I noticed the affect my mental assault had upon him. Anthony staggered and was noticeably weakened. His skin had lightened in color as if his body had eaten too much of the blood that sustained him. “You could have asked my intentions.” Anthoni’s speech reminded me of a different era. The last time I had heard this particular accent was during a bri

    Chapter 3 Distraction Marcus was gone when I awoke. Many years had passed, and he didn’t need me any longer. His determination and will had given him the strength to wean himself from my blood decades ago. We were never as close as Moses and I once were, but we knew each other almost as intimately. Well, as much as any two acquaintances can when they are in each other’s company for a couple of centuries. I suppose it has always been different for me. Long ago, I learned that life on this rock is little more than one distraction after the next, interrupted by the odd obsession and occa

    Chapter 2 Druid Born I knew that the Druids would come. They had no choice. We had created a new monster in this world, and had to somehow reign in the evil of our latest atrocity. It is this one thing that has always made me laugh. Worry… it seemed so human an emotion and as equally senseless. Now don’t get me wrong, there are many human emotions that are constructive and useful, however ‘worry’, has never been one of them. It’s always seemed a fruitless endeavor to dread a thing that you cannot change when the time would be better spent finding a solution. I rose from my bed earl
  9. Chapter 13 Hey Mister “Hey Mister! You can wake up now… I’m okay.” I felt the feather like touch of young flesh against my hand and a tug on my arm, trying to pull me upright. “Get up! Dinner’s waiting!” The voice was familiar, though at the same time strange, and I had a hard time lifting the weight of my eyelids. I didn’t truly want to wake up. “Ty!” Brian’s voice echoed through my mind and my eyes shot open. A feeling of dread engulfed me as the memories of those last moments of consciousness filled my mind. Somehow I had called the lightning without thinking, and had killed an
  10. Chapter 12 Lost Innocence The ground seemed to shift under my feet and I fell to my knees. An ache filled my chest as deeply as if the uncles had plunged a blade into my heart yet again. They were gone. How could they leave us? I should have known this was going to happen, but I didn’t, and that frustrated me even more. With the knowledge that Galen and Doris had given us, how could we not know of this ritual? What in hell was going on? “Galen!” I screamed his name into the darkness, as hot wet tears streamed down my cheeks and cooled in the night air. Bry rushed to my side, knel
  11. Chapter 11 Brethren “What the hell was that?” The surprise and worry in Mark’s voice did little to settle my nerves. “I’m not sure, but it was strong enough to get past the wards and can still move about during the daylight hours.” At first I would have thought it a shade, but the sun had already risen and this thing was much more powerful. I leaned over, collected my chair from the floor, and sat it upright. Usually, I would have trusted my instincts to know that it was safe, but I wasn’t sure anymore. How long had it lurked in the shadows? The skin along the back of my neck tingled
  12. Chapter 10 Dark Horizon The morning sun blazed against the back of my eyelids and the chill of the autumn morning made me want to dig deeper into the warmth of Bry’s body. The frost filled air caused an involuntary shudder in my chest as I yawned. I pulled Bry’s arm around me and tried to squirm deeper into the covers to hide the small bits of flesh that were exposed to the cold during my night’s slumber. He let out a gasp as I twisted around and buried my face into his warm chest. The tip of my nose felt like ice, and I tried to hide from the frigid air and memories that threatened to t
  13. My apologies. I didn't realize that I didn't finish out Chapter 2 of The Lycan here. It is of course supposed to be here first and foremost. On that note.. I've also posted chapter 3. Hope you like! Take care!
  14. Chapter 3 Leon’s Torment “That’s a very nice bike you have my sleeping beauty.” A heavily timbered bass voice filled my ears as I struggled to wake. It didn’t take me long before I remembered Leon and jerked awake. The white fluorescent lights burned my eyes as I struggled to sit upright. The fluorescent tubes seemed impossibly high above me. The ceiling must have been twenty feet high. As my eyes adjusted and the dull ache faded inside my skull I noticed the exposed wiring that ran along its length. The building was old and I suspected we were on the second floor of the restaurant. S
  15. Chapter 1 Welcome To the Night Life “Hey baby, need a date?” I left the safety of my home and entered this dark world four years ago. There is harm that accompanies these words. We night folk are a fragile breed though you might not suspect it. Each transgression strips away another piece of who we once were and thickens the wall around our desolate hearts. I’ve given so much of myself to those I serve that my soul has withered away into nothingness. I see the furtive glances of those more pristine than I. They turn their heads in disgust and race down the highway beneath the wash of str
