The Blinding Lie
“You’ve proven yourself time and again to be dedicated to this cause, Seth,” Henry says while patting Seth on the back with pride in his amber eyes.
For years, Seth has called this man father, this man who raised him and who claimed to love him. Yet all the while, this very man had killed his true father all while lying that Seth and he shared blood.
Henry still thinks that Seth doesn’t know th...
The Vangaurd League
"Celine, what are you doing! We’ve dedicated our whole lives to the Order!" Minerva shrieks.
"Minnie, give me one reason we’re with the Order, one reason that they’re better than the Vanguard League."
Minerva's eyes widened in disbelief, a mixture of shock and desperation evident in her voice. "The Order stands for tradition, for stability! We've thrived under their structured ways for centu...
Rags or Riches
Deep in the hart of an untamed jungle, two adventures, Sparky and Guz finally lay eyes on an ancient temple.
They had tracked for days trough the hot dense jungle of Castrovel to find it. Foliage had closed around them like some sort of living maze. But Gus's resolve and Sparky's magic had made it so they could prevail trough the wilderness.
Now, here, in this open clearing they can finally see...
On the other side of the bloodied battlefield, Aura Devilon stood proud, with a sword in her hand and smile on her face.
As the opposing side sent their forces upon Aura and the soldiers in her end charged toward them, she thrust into action.
Slicing her sword, she moved with grace and calculated steps; leading closer and closer to her father’s tent.
When she finally stood before her father, ...
A Blade Of Vengeance
I always thought myself good. A knight in shining armor, a hero to the throne. I’ve only just come to realize I may never have been the hero at all. And I’m certainly not now.
I grip the cool hilt of my sword, holding it towards Princess Meg. The shock takes a few seconds to register, before her face twists into a scowl of hate and betrayal. She should have ne...
Hole, Quarantine, & Death
The year is 3027, sometime in October. The exact date is unknown since the whole world’s population has gone from being above ground, to being so far underground they are not even remotely far from the core of the planet. This issue is the least problematic one. The core isn’t really their worries. The humans worries are only about their safety of getting *around* their new “world”. The man made t...
A Coal-ed Betrayal
A pair of eyes all black like obsidian store back at me, and as I store back at them into those ancient looking eyes realisation dawned on me. My mouth gapped open in horror. My mouth quirked in thought. “All this time you were training me to do your bidding!”
Those eyes store back at me for a long moment, then the arm of their master slithered up my wrist like a snack. I shook him off. “No! Don’t...
Loser. •Part Three•
He sprinted after her, only catching up when he reached the lake.
There she sat in the setting sun, her back facing him. He walked forward and sat next to her in the dewey grass. Tears stained her face.
“Why?” He asked her.
“I want to be a race car driver.”
“Not a jockey?”
Loser. •Part Two•
He looked at her until she met his eyes. When she did, he smiled, but she didn’t smile back.
She looked away. Patted her thigh.
As she gives her speech, Stella keeps patting the knife strapped to her thigh. Making sure it’s there. Making sure she doesn’t second guess herself. As she finishes her speech, the audience claps. She looks for Zane, but when her eyes meet his, an...
Loser. •Part One•
Standing on the stage in a deep purple gown and a beautiful gold tiara, Stella looks out at awaiting faces. She is about to give her acceptance speech to Hightail Academy, the most prestigious riding academy in all of England. Her father, the duke, has just introduced her.
She puts a smile on her face, a bright look in her eyes. She has wanted to go to this academy since she was negativ...
