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

Seneca & Isaakios

Chapter One

Seneca almost dropped her ice cream as she laughed at Daffodils joke “Oh stop so I can eat this” her voice was strained from laughing.

Lucy & Soter

Chapter One

She felt cold, her entire body shook, waking her. She blinked awake, her eyes resting on the open door that let snow swirl in and around her. What was happening? Where was she? She slowly sat up, her head pounding. “Hello?” She said. “Is anybody there?” Her question was met only by the wind. She groaned, blinked and there was suddenly someone standing just outside the door. She yelped, scrambling back. read more

Dwyn & Alvar 2

Chapter One

It was still a little strange for Dwyn to be here with Alvar in his homeland. Even here at the castle, people were nice and incredibly accepting of him. Many of those who practiced magic had taken an interest in him and his lack of pain response. One had even asked to electrocute him and seemed astounded when he didn’t so much as flinch. “You don’t have to let them do that you know.” Alvar said as they walked along the river. read more

Balthazar & Nephel

Chapter One

Cantaly and Claudius had their guards let in their final audience for the day. It was a king and his middle daughter, Nephel. “What has brought a king into our court Mathius?” He bowed slightly out of respect for his fellow nobility. “My daughter Nephel is nearing her twenty fifth birthday and is still without a husband or even a romantic interest. She wastes her life studying and I have been patient enough with her. Her sisters did what they ought, both married not long after they came of age and it’s about time she did that same.” Cantaly didn’t really need to listen to know what he was there for. She looked at the young woman beside him. She was obviously uncomfortable and didn’t wish to be trotted around like this by her father. read more

Aegaeon & Matalia 2

Chapter One

Aegaeon screamed as he sat bolt upright in bed, the sound and the quick movement waking Matalia. She moved quickly to her knees and wrapped her arms around his shoulders. He was shaking, his skin drenched in sweat so his hair stuck to his face. He clung to her, his forehead pressed against her shoulder and he tried his best not to throw up. “I’m sorry.” He whispered, his voice shaking. read more

Ediva, Chapin and their son Malchior were playing with Ryan & Leilani’s twins to give them some alone time in their home.

Ambrose & Demeter

Chapter One

Ambrose groaned as he came back to reality, his head and body feeling like it did when he trained with Bernadette. He slowly blinked his eyes open and found himself staring up at an unfamiliar face. Blue eyes filled with relief and he felt his heart skip a beat. “Thank goodness you’re okay.” She said as he slowly sat up. “You should be still.” read more
