Derrick & Mae

Chapter One

Derrick groaned as he lay there in the alley, his entire being a universe of pain. He clenched his stomach, wondering if his ribs were broken. He didn’t fight the waves of agony, he let them come, he deserved it. Sorrow washed over him and he curled up there, shivering and crying like the pathetic weakling he was. He heard the sound of footsteps and wondered if the men who had attacked him had returned to further punish him. He wouldn’t resist them, between the alcohol and his shame, he wanted to hurt. “Oh my god, are you alright?” The voice was soft, the tone gentle and warm. He barely manged to turn his head, his eyes colliding with those of a woman, those hazel orbs sparkling with concern and shock. “Who did this?” She asked as she reached out to brush his hair from his face. read more

Leopold & Theta

Contributed to by Breanna Toutloff

Chapter One

Leopold was into his second year of being a police officer and doing his nightly patrols in his car. He’d just drive around a few neighborhoods then go home. Each officer in his department had a route they’d take after their shift ended. Tonight screaming caught his attention from a house that was fairly secluded, she didn’t have a neighbor for at least a few miles which made the screaming alarm him even more. He slammed on breaks, jumped out of his car and ran up to the womans door, pounding loudly and yelling that he was a police officer and the name of his department. A woman soon came to the door wearing nothing but a towel, her face terrified and he could tell she was exhausted. She looked as exhausted as his parents had when he was a young child and they had dealt with that terrible demon. read more

Neek & Johana 3

Chapter One

Neek was supposed to be working on another report. He hadn’t sent one home in almost a month and he knew his leader was probably getting impatient with him but it was near impossible to stay focused on work these days. He could hear his wife and two children playing upstairs, their laughter filling the house so he longed to join them. He eagerly looked at the stairs when he heard their youngest running down, laughing hysterically all the way, his mother soon followed, sweeping him off his feet as she proclaimed “I got you!” She glanced over at Neek “how’s that report coming baby” read more

You needing space I understand, what I did was out of line but” read more

Nesoi & Crius 3

Chapter One

Crius watched nervously as Nesoi swam into the deeper water, his heart twisting in his chest as he watched for sharks or aggressive seals.

She dipped low and picked up another then turned and made her way back to him. “Can we go back now?” He asked as his eyes moved to her slightly rounded belly. read more

Aadi & Remus 2

Chapter One

Remus growled at the male, his teeth bared, his body placed directly between him and Aadi. He could smell the wolf on him and he didn’t like the speed at which he had approached. “What do you want?” He asked.

The young wolf stepped back, his hands coming up in a placating way. “Please, I wasn’t trying to frighten you.” read more
