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

Shara & Belus

Chapter One

 Shara jumped when she turned away from her bathroom mirror and saw the man sitting cross legged on her bed, dark shadows swirling and twitching, drifting around him like a living thing. Eyes like rubies watched her, his hands rested on his knees, his nails sharp and painted black. Dark hair fell down his back in a french braid, shiny, soft, and reminding her of raven wings. “Stop doing that.” She finally said with a sigh.

He grinned, showing sharp canines. “You think you would be used to it. I have been here since you were a child, little one.”

“You would think.”

“Off to work?”

“Drinks with friends.”

He blinked, tilting his head to the side. “I see.” He got off the bed, stretching. “Then let’s go.” read more

Mae And Lincoln

This story was contributed to by Stacy Meyer. She also had the original concept for it 🙂

Chapter One

Mae put the key in the lock and turned it jiggling it slightly, being told my the owners that the old thing could be quite finicky. The door opened and she kicked the box of belongings inside with a smile on her face. This was going to be the prefect place to set up her law firm. read more

Mered & Ella

Chapter One

Ella punched her assailant in the stomach, knocking the wind out of him and feeling accomplished. He had went limp for just a moment and in that moment she felt she had just won but she soon felt razor sharp pain as he slashed at her, suddenly forming claws. Her scream was cut off as Mered startled her, pouncing on the man. He had been out with her brother, Nigel and Cadoc but she supposed now he was back. She could feel the anger coming off of him in waves and a new scream came from her lungs when the man she had been fighting cut his head clean off with his claws “Mered!” Tears streamed down her face even when she saw his body still moving. He simply picked up his head and it went right back on his body, his skin connecting with eachother again like it was a completely natural thing to happen. read more

Antia & Andrej

Chapter One

Antia stared down sadly at her hands as the carriage drew closer to the dark keep. Her fingers gripped her dress and her heart fluttering in fear. The idea of an arranged marriage was abhorrent to her, even if it was necessary. “You know I wouldn’t ask this of you if there were any other way.” Her father said, his voice tinged with worry. read more

Marius & Aeron 4

Chapter One

Marius jerked against the restraints around his wrists and ankles, but no matter how hard he pulled he couldn’t get free. He was gagged so was unable to speak, could only stare angrily at the man across from him. “I told you I would be back boy.” His uncle grinned at him. “I told you that you and that little mate would pay.” Marius growled, his eyes going completely black. “Frustrated that you were caught or that you can’t read me?” His uncle chuckled as he got up, wincing in pain as he moved closer and leaned down. “I’ll let you see just this once.” Images flashed in Marius’s head as his uncle opened his mind. A syringe, drugs injected into his veins, fantasies of Aeron bleeding and broken of him tormented at murdering his beloved. Marius growled again and his uncle reached into his pocket and pulled out a syringe. “I’ve refined it you know, it’s more potent in liquid form it seems. Not like that powder your mate inhaled.” He grabbed Marius’s arm and stuck the needle in even as he fought. “I wonder what you’ll do to him little Marius.” He pushed down on the plunger. “I can’t wait to find out.” 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

Dakota & Rais 2

Chapter One

“Would you stop staring, it’s distracting.” Dakota said as he looked through the viewfinder of his camera.

“But I’m not even touching you, love, I’m merely admiring you as you work.”

“Maybe you should stop coming out with me.”

“I don’t think so, I enjoy it too much and you must admit you love having me here too.” read more

Reuben & Akari 2

Chapter One

Akari was sitting at her kitchen table with a large cup of coffee as she contemplated what could be going on with her son Derwin. He was acting strange lately but she didn’t know what to do. He was a teenager now, if he was younger, even her daughters age she might demand he tell her but she remembered being a teen. Akari knew it was important to them they felt like adults and he certainly deserved his privacy. He had always been such a good kid. She never got called to school, he never stayed out past curfew, he hadn’t raised his voice to her since he was a toddler or anything of the sort. She loved being a parent and normally felt it was easy now that her kids were so grown but moments like these it felt impossible to decide what to do. read more
