Flora & Fraser

Chapter One

The last person Flora had expected to see being ushered into her office was Fraser Reid and she was frozen as he gave her that same charming smile he had given her when they had first met. She remembered the day, when she had come stomping furiously out of the women’s restroom at the airport, her face red and covered in tears, her phone clutched crushingly tight in her hand. Her boyfriend had dared to yell at her when she told him she couldn’t make her flight, that she would have to take another, like it was her fault. She had been so angry she had slammed into him as he walked with his secretary to their terminal, spilling his coffee down the front of her suit. She had started crying again as she apologized and his secretary had rushed off to get napkins. He had been so kind, calming her down and laughing off the spill. He had had her laughing in a matter of minutes. He had even given her his business card, telling her to call him if she ever got the chance, something she hadn’t planned on, but had stuck it in her purse out of habit. She was handed so many on trips that she had a whole file just for them in her office.

Zaid & Vecente

Chapter One

His own fathers fist met with his cheek and knocked a tooth nearly out of place “you tell your lord where they have gone Zaid! You tell him now! Do you not understand how you shame your mother and I turning against the very man who speaks to the gods on our behalf!”

“You’re a fool father, you and everyone else. There are no gods he and his men speak to. It’s a lie passed down generations..it’s all a fucking lie to control us” Nicretus stood “Move back Garet, go to your wife. I forgive you for your sons transgressions. It is not always the parents fault when a child becomes so…so infantile” Zaid scoffed when his father bowed and thanks him. When his father scampered out the room like the spineless man he was Nicretus said “regardless of weather you believe I and my family before me speak to the gods Tara is my daughter. I want only what’s best for her”

Fino & Allon 4

Chapter One

“You’re late Nebi.” Fino said as his contact sat down next to him.

“Hey, I get busy.”

“You said it was important and then you show up late.”

“It is important, but so is my other work.”

Fino snorted. “Do I even want to know?”

“Probably not.” Nebi held out an envelope and when Fino reached for it he snatched it away, grinning. “You are going to tell your wolf right?”

Alkon & Anthousai 4

Chapter One

Alkon was at a bar having a drink with Hybris and Kallen when a man approached Alkon. Alkon assumed the man must be a noble. It was in the way he held himself and walked, even in the way he spoke. “Are you Alkon Birral?” He asked as though he already knew and Alkon liked the confidence. Even nobles sometimes spoke to him with apprehension “Yes I am, why?” Buck lowered his voice “may I speak with you in private? Your ship mates may be around but I don’t want the wrong ears here to know what we discuss”

Arrow & Zaylee 5

Zaylee wore a huge smile as she cut up vegetables for the stew she planned on making when her husband came back with the meat.

He had gone after something big so they could make the stew as large as possible.

Jubal & Delia 3

Chapter One

Delia’s head rested on his shoulder as he drove and he glanced in the review mirror at his cousin Finn who was staring at his iPad. He could sense his nervousness, his fear and worry. Delia’s family had invited them over for a week and Delia had insisted on taking Finn with them since he didn’t get out much. Jubal had had to reassure the boy time and time again that if anything went wrong, he would stop him, but Finn was still terrified. “How’s he doing?” Delia said softly.

Halcyon & Fane

Chapter One

Fane gripped tightly to his covers as he tossed and turned, his muscles tense as the nightmare filled his head, the rememberance of pain, the taunting voice and the innocent, horror filled eyes. He screamed, his eyes snapping open, his heart nearly beating out of his chest. He moved onto his side, curling into a ball and crying. His stomach rolled, but he told himself he would not throw up this time. Even as the thought entered his head he was running to the bathroom of his little studio apartment, his stomach emptying itself as he leaned over the toilet bowl. He puked until there was nothing left and even then all he could do was dry heave and cry. He felt so weak, but he couldn’t help the feeling of shame he was always left with.

Atalie and Abarron

~ Original Idea created by Breanna

Chapter One

My only belief is that danger is always present. I can’t sleep, afraid to close my eyes for fear that in the second I choose to find peace my worst nightmares will come to pass. Every noise or footstep was an instant nightmare and my heart beat in my chest at a level that I thought was surely heard. It was September 13th, 1939. Just last month I was playing with my siblings while my mother cooked us dinner and my Father was hard at work. Everything was right in the world. Now, I lie still as a brick, hidden beneath the staircase with only inches to move. I can barely breath but anything was better than nothing. It was more than what my family was lead to. I weep silently as the memories flash through my mind. I can still hear my mother screaming out my name as I was ripped from her arms.

Solon & Judas

Chapter One

Judas was exhausted and walking out of his cousins house to head home when he saw one of his old friends, bruised, covered in glitter, obviously passed out and bleeding a little from her mouth. He rushed over and checked to see if she was breathing “thank god” he said to himself then checked her purse for a wallet. They had been friends but he didn’t know where she lived. “damn” there was no wallet to be found. He hoped nobody had stolen it. “Hey!” a guy called out from behind him. Judas said “I am going to call an ambulance for her”
