The Gate: Chapter 3: Connection

Rawlin gasped in a breath of air.  His entire body throbbed and his head pounded with a terrible ache that nearly brought tears to his eyes.  He tried to move but found that only caused more pain.  For a moment he wondered how long he had been stuck in this position.  It felt like his […]

The Gate: Chapter 2: Meeting

“This meeting will now be brought to order.  Is everyone here?” Elder Rex asked, looking around the room. Heads bobbed up and down.  Havern crossed his arms and leaned back in his chair.  This wasn’t how things were supposed to be going.  The Trax weren’t supposed to be sending anyone through the Gate for a […]

Fortune: Act Two

He’s sitting only inches away. I am watching the way our hands fold together on my lap. My shoulder fits under his just the right way, and he’s never complained about how bony I am. I’ve never been very filled out, and my bones stick out more than they probably should, but he loves it […]

Bird: Chapter 2

There is a short moment when my wings won’t draw back upwards against the air. I timed it wrong. I pushed down too hard. I’m not entirely sure where I’ll land, but last time it was in my mother’s bushes. My wing was sprained for 2 weeks and she wouldn’t speak to me for twice […]

Hidden Remains: Chapter 3: Response

The village elder sighed, his hands tightening over a wooden cane. His eyes slipped shut, remembering the face that the boy had worn before he had revealed crystal violet eyes. It was intriguing to say the least; the child’s reaction was not one anyone would put to a semi-burned village. As for his eyes, no […]
