Maksym & Poppi

Chapter One

Maksym was almost to his brothers mansion so he decided just to relax a bit. It was time to check on him again and make sure he wasn’t doing anything he shouldn’t to anybody or to the land around him but he was tired and he wasn’t quite sure he was mentally ready yet to deal with whatever crap Lakopa was doing now. Lakopa was older by about twenty years and just like him, he looked a lot like their mother. However, he was more like their father in attitude. Maksym knew his parents never had much more than a sexual relationship but still, he wasn’t sure how his dad even ever got his mother in bed with him. He didn’t think on this too long, instead he just enjoyed how beautiful it was in this area.

Azriel & Vrai

Chapter One

Most might think it was the frigid cold that would make this trek hard but it was mostly the unforgiving winds this high on the mountain. It stung any bit of exposed skin and made walking it even more tiring than it should be since they had to push against them it was so bad up here. What made it worse was knowing they weren’t even halfway to the point the reports said the three headed trolls were living. Their king and Queen had been informed a large group of giant, three headed trolls had taken over this mountain, refusing anybody entry after they destroyed the homes of the people who were daring enough to live in a place like this. They had already found the reports were true of a bloody take over on these mountains. Dead bodies laid in the snow, covering surrounding areas in crimson.

Ray & Ivor

~ Breanna Vincent contributed to this story

Chapter One

The cool feel of the metal vanished as Ray wrapped her fingers around it. She pushed heat from her palm, melting it. She let her fingers slide to the other end, grasping it again so the other end came loose and she was able to pull it free. She swung as the nosferatu jumped at her, catching it in the side and twisting her hips to drive the creature away. It staggered, slamming into the side of a black Mercedes. It screeched at her, showing mouth full of two rows of sharp teeth. It came against and she choked up on the pole, calculating the amount of force she would need to send him flying. She braced herself, using gravity to lock herself into place and she swung again, twisting her hips, the sidewalk beneath her cracking. The end of the pole caught him under the chin and sent him arcing through the air and into a fire hydrant. One hand swept up the pipe, heat melting it as she molded it into a sharp spike and approached the dazed nosferatu. It stumbled to its feet and she flipped the pole, holding it like a javelin. She pulled back, pivoting on her back foot and putting as much force into it as she could. It sailed through the air, hitting the monster in the chest and sending it backward and pinning it to a telephone pole. It screeched, hands fighting to pull the pole from its chest. It flailed angrily in denial as blood seeped from the wound and then it was still and silent, it grotesque body falling limp. Ray approached it, her fingers wrapping around the makeshift weapon and she jerked it free so the nosferatu fell to the ground. She pulled out her phone, pushing the number two and send.

Alvah & Daray 3

Chapter One

Alvah sat in his living room feeling sorry for himself as he listened to Daray, Gaspare and Darays childhood friend Iom messing around outside. He hated he couldn’t go out to be with him. It was frustrating to the point of tears. He was glad his mate didn’t know he was awake because he didn’t want Daray to know he was crying. He had been sleeping whenever it had been that Iom made his appearance but the mens laughter had woke him so now here he sat, having to listen to them from the living room because nothing he could do could protect him from the sun. Alvah eventually got up with a groan and rushed to his library. He was going to find a way to go out into the sun. He didn’t care how long it took or how much of his funds he had to use he was going to find a way to be in the sun with his mate “there just has to be a way” he said to himself sadly as he began looking through books.

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.

Aitolia & Flynn

Co written by Breanna Vincent

Chapter One

The fine hairs on the back of my neck rise. My cheeks are flushed as the blood rushes swift and hot to give me away. I can feel them all staring at me, unable to pry their eyes away, even just for a second. I focus on putting one foot in front of another to keep myself moving towards my salvation. Just a few more seconds of torment and I can be free.

Rama & Helem 2

Rama shook as he tried to concentrate on the magic, feeling Helem’s eyes on him. He was terrified of unleashing the wolves, of what they might do to Helem once they appeared. “Breathe, Rama.” Helem’s voice was gentle and Rama felt frustration crawling.

“I can’t do it.” He dropped his head in defeat and Helem’s arms were suddenly around him, pulling him close.
