Leave me Be (From the Archives)

Vekna wiped her blade clean with a bloodied rag.  The blood sluced off the end of the blade, dripping onto the muddy stone floor.

Before (A Teacup Story)

“It was all so good,” Tristan sighed, into his drink “before you lot got involved.” The bodies didn’t talk back.

That I could go back to… Continue reading Before (A Teacup Story)

Crossing the River Ine (Teacup Story)

Junea pulled the reigns of Ceanol sharply, bringing her to a halt. “Why did you stop?” Kanek asked, pulling up next to Junea. Garne, his horse, stamped impatiently. He was an old racing horse, and he hated standing still for more than a moment at a time. “Do you hear that?” Junea asked. Kanek cocked… Continue reading Crossing the River Ine (Teacup Story)

Under the Arches (Teacup Story)

“Do you have it?” Lauren nodded, hand still tucked inside her jacket. It might not seem much, this little tin box full of blue powder, but it was going to change the world. Their world.

Flash Fiction – Disguise (Stories on a Theme – “Facade”)

Tariik threw the cloak at Raen. “Put it on,” he said. Raen picked up the cloak, disgusted. She had been the lowly begger last week. It should be Tariik’s turn to put on the stupid outfit and pretend to be robbed by Raen.  Raen sniffed the cloak.

Flash Fiction – Fleeing Monsters (From the Archives)

“So, you think this was a good idea?” Garek said cheerfully. Too cheerfully. They were the only ones left from their little group. It wouldn’t take long until the monsters found them too. Janee cradled the small stick of information that could hold the keys to defeating the creatures. Their last hope. Bevan had given… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Fleeing Monsters (From the Archives)
