Virginia & Naor

Chapter One

Naor ached as he laid beside a river under a small bridge. He had narrowly gotten out of that fight, only getting away at all because his father taught him how to tear through into other worlds. It was dangerous but that situation had called for drastic measures. He’d return to where he was from once he had a good nights sleep and could do it responsibly. He was just about to pass out when a woman approached him. He could tell she meant no harm, not a single one of his senses felt any threat, just compassion “excuse me” 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

Carter & Joy 3

Chapter One

Carter’s eyes snapped open, his entire body stiffening, his arms tightening protectively around Joy as he listened. There had been no noise, not really, it was a feeling, a change in the air of the house. Someone was in his home, the home he shared with beautiful Joy. He moved slowly, sliding out of bed and taking only a moment to pull the covers up to Joy’s chin before reaching under the bed and wrapping his fingers around his gun. He cocked his head, hearing breathing and he moved on bare feet to stand next to the door. It opened and he reacted, his hand grabbing the intruder and slamming them against the wall his gun pressing under their chin. The sound woke Joy and she shot up, her hands fumbling with the lamp next to her. Carter’s raged filled eyes were suddenly tinted with confusion. read more

Chapter One

Jonah stood there with the phone to his ear, frozen, eyes wide a cold sweat dotting his skin. “Jonah?” Eleos’s voice barely registered and he felt the phone taken from him. “Who is this?” Eleos asked as he helped Jonah take a seat on the couch. He looked about ready to collapse. read more
