Zinlya & Torgan

Written for Melinda Collins

Chapter One

I’m excited, exhilarated even as I run to see my father, the king that will soon step down as I am wed in a few days. I’m ready to run into his arms and tell him all about how wonderful my day was when I’m stopped in my tracks, a gasp caught in my throat so my mouth is just gaping open at the horror before me. He lays dead, his guards all around him. I run, in absolute disbelief he is truly laying lifeless on the floor. I shake him “father! father please talk to me” He’s cold, his skin no longer warm and pink but pale. There’s so much blood on the floor and within me I know he has passed on. This was the day my world fell apart. There was no time for weddings or any type of happiness. Whomever had done this had declared war and my mother, bless her misguided soul was fast to blame a kingdom we had been having some disputes with. They denied her claim but she wouldn’t believe them so now, even years later we are stuck in a war that may or may not even be against the right people. read more

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

Fiora & Kaleb

Chapter One

Fiora sighed, feeling incredibly bored. She was about to get up and leave the river when she felt Kaleb land, his massive black wings somehow looking cooler in the setting sun. His long, wild hair was all over the place as usual but that was just another incredibly sexy thing about him to her. There wasn’t much clothing on him but that was normal for Kaleb. She didn’t mind, his every muscle was pronounced and she loved being able to glance every now and then. She’d stare if she was more confident and didn’t worry about coming across rude. She had never felt ugly but she felt plain next to a creature as attractive as him. “Fiora, are you alright? You look sad” read more

Asta & Sigge 2

Chapter One

Asta giggled happily as she jumped, skipped and spun around outside. The jubilance of being a woman again hadn’t drained out of her in the slightest. Sigge just sat in the grass admiring her, loving the positive energy she always engulfed them in. Asta walked over to him “sorry baby” read more

Antigone & Paruush 2

Chapter One

Antigone and Paruush were playfully messing around in their bedroom, filling it with laughter. Their four year anniversary was coming up soon, four years of a wonderful, blissful marriage and seven years of the most magical relationship either had ever been in. It only took them so long to get married because they had an impossible time picking where they wanted to get married and coordinating the days the venue was available with when all of Paruush’s family could come proved difficult. It meant a lot to Antigone so much of his family wanted to see them married she didn’t mind it made them keep pushing the date back. read more

Antigone & Paruush

Chapter One

Paruush truly hadn’t been paying any mind to where he was going when his brother appeared in front of him “Paruush, what the hell are you doing here? Get your ass home”

“I’m just walking”

“right into the territory of known vampire killers. I know you’re hurting and I know Antigone still wont answer your calls or the door when you go to see her but you will destroy mom and dad if you keep doing stupid shit. You need to take care of yourself, if not for you for us” He looked around “I didn’t come here on purpose…I was lost in thought…maybe I was guided here….I hurt her….one more second and I would….I….” read more

Ajmal & Rubie 2

Chapter One

Ajmal jerked awake at his kitchen table, there was the knocking again. He didn’t know somebody knocking on your front door could be creepy until now. He would hear a loud pound then two seconds of silence, a loud pound then two seconds of silence. It just reapted over and over until he answered. At this point Ajmal knew he was dreaming, he had had this dream so many times and he didn’t want to answer that door. At this point he knew what lurked behind it. It would be one of those demons that gave him all these scars. He didn’t want to answer and tried to will himself awake but just like every other time there was no waking up until he opened the front door. read more

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” read more

Edmonia & Ibrahim

~ Contributed to by Breanna Vincent

Chapter One

Edmonia ate dinner silently as she sat across the table from Ibrahim. You could call him many things, her owner, a man playing father or somthing else similar. She had been living with this man since she was nine years old, a man she hadn’t even seen once before the day he snatched her from her family. In her world if you wrong someone you are expected to pay with something equal if they go to the king and demand it. When she was a child her father murdered this mans son and when he went before the king the king granted him repayment in multiple ways, he could have taken her fathers life, her life or taken her for his own to raise in placement of the boy. He had chosen taking her and in that choice he had never allowed her to see her parents again. read more

Lyric and Shadow

~ Originally created by Breanna Vincent ~

Chapter One

I closed my eyes, feeling the morning dew on my face. I raised my arms above my head, caressing the soft silky petals of the lily I was nesting in. It was such a beautiful day. I stretched out my gossamer wings as far as I could, inching them to the sky with every breath. They had grown recently, I was so excited! I couldn’t wait to show Shadow when he returned from this voyage. He had flown with Papa to gather food for the families. Oh how I loved spring, it was my favorite season. Full of new life and promises of glorious adventures. I wonder what we will get into this summer, Shadow and I always had at least one momentous exploration. They held tales of danger and excitement, it’s a miracle we didn’t get into more trouble than we do. Papa always scolded us for going so close to the humans. Silly Papa, they weren’t all forceful and savages. Some of them were delicate and gentle like us. I didn’t fear them as I should but stood in awe whenever I thought of them. They were such magnificent creatures but rarely ever used their powers. I wondered why. I pushed off of my lily and sprung into the air, as light as a feather. The light hum of my wings started the day of with a wonderful tune. Every day was music to my ears. read more
