Cade & Holly

Chapter One

Cade had finally decided to head to bed when he heard Cliona crying in her bedroom. His heart sank, with the television as loud as he had it she could have been crying for hours. He kicked himself for not thinking she could possibly be emotional tonight after accidentally hurting him again today. She was such a sweet little girl and the most recent one he had adopted out of the foster system. He often took the troubled children, the children nobody else would keep since he felt they needed saving from the system the most. He opened her door but she didn’t notice she was so upset. “Cliona” he said gently as he sat on her bed. He wanted to hold her but she had been horribly physically abused by her birth parents and was easily scared. He knew it wouldn’t bring her the comfort he would be intending to give. “I’m sorry” read more

Lets go spend some time with my parents then leave in the morning” Rajin picked up their house phone and dialed his mother “Hey baby” read more

Ghislain & Scipio 2

Chapter One

Scipio was reading the news online when he saw it again, savage attacks on people vacationing in Ireland. As much as he wanted to ignore it he opened the most recent article and yet again it looked like something one of his species would do. He knew most Dobhar-chu’s were highly aggressive. They didn’t even have to be provoked they just had a foul temperament and would attack because it felt like it. Dobhar-chu’s killed without any remorse and most he had known were complete sociopaths. He didn’t know how he had become so normal, especially considering his parents were just as savage as most of their kind was. He had left Ireland when he did because he was nothing like his family and wanted to break away from them but now, now they seemed to be more vicious than ever and he couldn’t turn a blind eye. read more

I hope they will let us adopt one of their children” Nuria said happily as Oda was bringing together her long hair since it was slightly windy and blowing in her face. Oda finished then kissed her wifes shoulder “me too” Oda rested her head where she had kissed and felt grateful once again to have a woman that loved her despite her disability. Nuria carried her everywhere, had been carrying her for over a week now and not one grumble groan or slightest hint that she considered her a burden. They had been married seven years at this point and the only way they’d be happier is if Hafsah and Chione allowed them to adopt one of their children. read more
