Marius & Aeron 3

Chapter One

Aeron walked down the city street, heading back to the portal after collecting payment for another wish. He was almost there when he was attacked from behind, something hard smashing into the back of his head. He didn’t go down, but twisted around and pulled out his gun. His vision was blurry, but he could still see his attacker. Before he could squeeze the trigger, a bunch of powder was thrown into his face.

Patrick & Kathleen 2

Chapter One

Patrick’s fists slammed into the punching bag at the gym, his focus on working out the anger he had previously felt. In truth he didn’t have any right to be angry. One of the women from his past had tracked him down and cornered him at work and when Kathleen had dropped by to drop off lunch, all she had seen was a woman standing two inches from him, his hands on her shoulders as he was pushing her away. He had tried to explain, but she had been deaf to his pleading. Now she wouldn’t even talk to him or look at him. He hated this, hated himself and hated that woman. He didn’t know what he was going to do or what Kathleen was going to do. His heart broke at the prospect of her leaving him. It had been two years since they started dating, two years of her smiles and laughter, of watching how excited she would get for conventions, of falling asleep with her wrapped in his arms, two years shattered in a matter of seconds.

Rian & Kou

Chapter One

Kou struggled to pick what to wear yet again today. It was one of three days a week he took a cooking class taught by world renowned chef Rian Foetida. He was incredibly handsome at 6’1 with those beautiful green eyes and seemingly flawless body. Rian obviously didn’t remember but they had met before when Kou was a child. Rians first cooking show had been one where he cooked something with a kid on every episode. It would be a complicated dish, something most adults wouldn’t dream of letting their kids help with but that was part of the allure of the show. Kou had been on with him a few times and had developed a little crush on him.

Ortensia & Sandro 2

Chapter One

It’s three months later and they still have a ton to do with the mansion. It had been left to the elements for generations, just being passed from person to person who didn’t want it and it was an overwhelming job at times to get this place livable. Especially now that Ortensia didn’t have as much help. Her parents still paid for professionals to come out and help once a week because that was as often as they could afford but her friends and her parents friends weren’t helping nearly as much but she didn’t blame them. It was awesome of all of them to help as long as they did. She knew they had lives and it would be selfish of her to be pissed because they didn’t want to still come out three months later.

Aras & Rushima

Chapter One

Prologue: Rushima played with the village children. Eating up the laughter and smiles she could draw out of them. Aras, whom she hadn’t noticed was watching. After the passing of his wife, she was the only thing aside from his family that could make him truly happy and she, unlike his family could make him happy in the simplest of ways. Just her coming up to him and saying hi would draw his mostly down spirits into pure happiness. Watching her like this even made him happy and he’d continue to do it until she noticed. He didn’t end up drawing her attention until one of the kids had to go home. She began walking over to him though he knew she would have preferred to fly over. That was the one thing that broke his heart about Rushima, that she let people make her feel like she should hide being half fairy. There wasn’t anybody who was particularly rude or mean about her being different but being the only halfling among a world of basically nothing but pure blooded elves made her feel uncomfortable most the time and he knew the other elves caused it. Her childhood had been rough at times and it was only because her father wasn’t an elf but a fairy. It had caused the other children when she was small to exclude her at times and make her feel like an outsider in her own world. “Aras” He stood, smiling, enjoying once again how she said his name.
