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

Reuben & Akari 2

Antigone & Paruush 3

Chapter One

Antigone was out with a few of her relatives, a girls day one of her cousins had put together. On top of that their older son, Kiral was away at a summer camp he had begged them to go to. Antigone had struggled the first few days of it, not used to not having one of her babies with her but she seemed fine now, just happy her son was off and having fun. They had recently had another baby boy but he was still breastfeeding so even though it was a girls day they had one little male guest. However, Paruush was sure the other women loved it. That left Paruush completely alone. He couldn’t stand the house without his family in it so he took his guitar and the sheets of paper he used to write his own music, deciding to go sit somewhere on their vast property. He hadn’t left knowing what sort of music he’d be writing today but he hoped the nature around him would inspire something. read more
