Derrick & Mae

Chapter One

Derrick groaned as he lay there in the alley, his entire being a universe of pain. He clenched his stomach, wondering if his ribs were broken. He didn’t fight the waves of agony, he let them come, he deserved it. Sorrow washed over him and he curled up there, shivering and crying like the pathetic weakling he was. He heard the sound of footsteps and wondered if the men who had attacked him had returned to further punish him. He wouldn’t resist them, between the alcohol and his shame, he wanted to hurt. “Oh my god, are you alright?” The voice was soft, the tone gentle and warm. He barely manged to turn his head, his eyes colliding with those of a woman, those hazel orbs sparkling with concern and shock. “Who did this?” She asked as she reached out to brush his hair from his face. read more

Julian & Lucius 4

Chapter One

“Do we really have to do this, I mean I have other family we could see.” Julian said as he walked side by side with Lucius, their fingers laced together.

“You said anything.” Lucius replied with a warm smile.

“Yeah, but I didn’t think you would pick my parents.” 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

Lachlan, Teague, & Kennedy

Chapter One

Kennedy sat in the alley, the hunger beat through him, pounded like a drum, causing tremor after tremor to run through him as he forced himself to stay put in the dark corner of the alley. The urge to feed whispered to him like a siren, tempting him to the pedestrians, to the sound of their hearts and the rush of blood just beneath the surface of their warm skin. He whimpered, fists clenching as he felt his canines lengthen. He didn’t want this, didn’t know what he had done to deserve this curse. He remembered the attack, the feel of being hit from behind, the fingers bunching in his hair and wrenching his head back, the sharp pain blossoming at his throat. No one had cared for the strangled cries of one young man, no one had come to save him as he slipped into the terrifying abyss of nothingness. Then he had woke face down, cold cement beneath his cheek, rain soaking into his clothes, the taste of blood on his tongue. read more

Zeric & Amorie

Chapter One

Zeric and his father laughed happily as they walked back home “I can’t believe you turned eighteen last week son”

“that’s all you’ve been able to talk about”

“you’ll understand when you’re a parent…it’s weird to have your child become an adult” Zeric decided this was a good time to ask his father “can my girlfriend stay the night tonight?” read more

Ariane & Jairo 2

Chapter One

“Listen here you jackass!” Ariane shouted angrily, her friend had now left out of fear of Jairo “How dare you treat him like that or speak to me that way and especially how fucking dare you try to ever tell me what I can and can’t do. I go on this trip every single year and I will continue to do just that. He is my friend, nothing more and you need to grow up. I’m serious Jairo, I’m going, you’re welcome to go but only if you learn how to behave. I am so disappointed in you right now, we’ve been doing so well and now you’re letting your jealousy get the better of you” read more

Kokou & Umay

Chapter One

Umay cried and begged as she fought against the men who dragged her down the hall to the electroshock room. “It’s not my fault.” She screamed as they pulled her along, tears flowing down her cheeks. She had only smiled at the young man when he had suddenly attacked her, trying to pull her clothes off. No matter how much she had fought, he wouldn’t stop until she had kneed him in the groin. She hadn’t wanted to hurt anyone, but his disposition had gone from polite to aggressive in a matter of moments and in broad daylight. It wasn’t her fault, it wasn’t fair, but they wouldn’t listen to her, she was just a woman. “Please!” They forced her onto the table and quickly buckled her down. She cried as they switched on the machine and as the leather bit was forced between her teeth. The paddles touched her temples and then there was a crash of glass as the window across from her exploded inward. A wind howled through the room, the lights flickering and then he was there standing at the foot of the table. read more

Dakarai & Nani 2

Chapter One

Hafsah and Chione had been gone a few days now, leaving the responsibilities of the orphanage in the hands on Dakarai, Nani, Colt and Curtis who had become an adult a few years ago but asked to stay to help around the house. With their orphanage only getting bigger due to knowledge of it spreading they could use the help so they happily decided to let Curtis just spend his life there. He now had his own room and had so far proven himself to be a big help. It also helped having an extra adult during times like this. The reason they were gone was they were helping some of their children who had become adults find their place in the world. read more

Ariane & Jairo

Chapter One

Jairo had once again gotten to the point he missed his Ariane far too much to stay away a second longer. He was on his way to her, hoping she’d be happy to see him. She normally was at first but it never took him long to start getting on her nerves. He vowed to himself this time was going to be different. His son, the one most like him had changed so much for a human girl named Theia and it made Jairo see that he could change too. He needed Ariane, more than she could ever understand and he was going to try his hardest to be a man she wanted to keep around. When he arrived at her home he knocked, hoping just that would say something to her. Normally he rudely barged in like it was his home too. read more

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. read more
