Paimon & Pellegrino

Chapter One

“Paimon, come on we should have left already.” Pellegrino said as he walked into the room Paimon was using at the castle. “What’s taking…” he froze, his heart jumping in his chest when he saw Paimon standing there naked, drying his hair. Paimon’s eyes collided with his and he swallowed. “I…sorry, I should have knocked, I…” He turned around to leave and Paimon was suddenly standing there, closing the door, the towel wrapped around his waist. read more

Ambrose & Demeter 2

Chapter One

Ambrose sat there drinking some water, sweat running down his face as he took a break and watched Demeter practicing. There was something wrong, he could tell, and there had been for a few days. She slashed and blocked, spun and ducked, but she seemed exhausted, her form off and it worried him. He could even hear that her breathing was off, like she was struggling. It was when the other soldier knocked her sword out of her hand, shocking the both of them, that he stood and went over to her. Demeter was gripping her wrist and the young man was apologizing. read more

Sylvie & Jarius 2

Chapter One

Sylvie laughed with her cousins as they continued to play their game. She was out to celebrate one of them getting married soon while Jarius was out with one of his Uncles. The old dragon had come wanting Jarius to help him with some artifacts he had found. Doing something like that was hard to do with a four year old, especially a little girl as wild as theirs so one of Sylvies brothers had offered to take care of little Xeja. Jarius had almost taken a break from working with his Uncle so Lefan wouldn’t have to watch her but at the last second changed his mind. He felt it would be better to try to finish so it wouldn’t take time from his family any more since his wife was out anyway. Lefan had watched her a few times before so they could have some time alone so they trusted him today. read more

Neek & Johana 3

Chapter One

Neek was supposed to be working on another report. He hadn’t sent one home in almost a month and he knew his leader was probably getting impatient with him but it was near impossible to stay focused on work these days. He could hear his wife and two children playing upstairs, their laughter filling the house so he longed to join them. He eagerly looked at the stairs when he heard their youngest running down, laughing hysterically all the way, his mother soon followed, sweeping him off his feet as she proclaimed “I got you!” She glanced over at Neek “how’s that report coming baby” read more

Luthais & Saskia 2

“I thought I’d find you out here?” Saskia said and Luthais looked down from the branch he had been dozing in, his heart skipping a beat at her bright smile.

He jumped down and dusted himself off. “What are you doing out here alone?”

“I’m not alone, I’m with you.” read more

Luthais & Saskia

Chapter One

The first time she had seen him, she was only six years old. He had been sitting in a tree and had jumped down when she wandered away from her parents. He had ushered her back, a bit irritated, but hadn’t laid a hand on her. She hadn’t gone far, but he seemed to want to keep her away from the woods. She remembered telling her parents about the man, but they had found nothing and for awhile she had thought it was nothing more than a small child’s imagination. She was seventeen now and hadn’t seen him since, but she often felt another presence close by. She sighed as she walked, getting so lost in thought she didn’t even notice the wild dogs gathered around the deer carcass at first. It had not been there when she had gone to visit her grandparents. The dirty, scarred hounds noticed her presence and turned hungry eyes on her, growling as blood and saliva dripped from their jaws. She swallowed, taking a step back and then another as they started towards her. What was she supposed to do? One lunged and she screamed, turning and running. She could hear them behind her, barking and snarling as they chased her. read more

Ediva & Chapin 3

Chapter One

Ediva soared through the sky, her enormous wings pushing them through the air. Her husband Chapin and her son Malchior sat confidently on her back, experts at riding her so that she didn’t have to worry about either falling off. They had gotten stir crazy in the village and decided to just leave for awhile, no real destination in their heads. They were now flying into areas none of them had seen before so all three of them were enjoying the amazing view from so high up in the sky. Something caught Malchiors eye below so he yelled “Mom! Mom there’s something I want to see! Can we land please?” She roared then slowly began descending to earth. Flying with her husband and son was amazing but she was eager to look at whatever it was that caught Malchiors attention. read more

Chua & Kristin

Chapter One

The scent of demon caught Chua’s attention as he walked through the woods and he froze, turning slowly, his nose flaring as he worked to pinpoint this new smell. There was someone here, a stranger and she was walking toward Adali and Faigi’s home. He wondered what her intent was and worried it might be malicious. He shifted, his wings carrying him up into the air and his eyes looked down, his nose searching. He would not let another demon near his loved ones, he had promised to watch over them. He spotted her and moved ahead of her then dropped down, shifting as she came closer to him. She looked surprised at first and he had a feeling she had not caught his scent. read more
