Fear (100 Words)

The feeling was not of anger or of hatred. It was the bone sinking, gut wrenching quiet whisper of doubt.  It was the thoughts Felicity didn't even know where there until Gerrard had pointed them out. Her snappiness. Her temper.  She was scared, scared for them all, but she'd never admit it.  She'd never admit… Continue reading Fear (100 Words)

Clues (From the Archives)

“Why,” Cassie groaned as she put her head on her desk. The system had logged her out again and she needed to get to the fingerprint database to cross reference the results from forensics. “What?” Terry poked his head above his cubicle, his glasses sitting askew on his nose. No one would even guess he… Continue reading Clues (From the Archives)

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. The body of the Corps agent lay at her feet, limbs splayed in an unnatural way. “Oops,” Vekna said, sheathing her sword. The Corps were so inefficient with the people they… Continue reading Leave me Be (From the Archives)

“FIGHT ME!” Tranegath roared at Hulun. Hulun struggled, his head still ringing from the previous blow.

Awake (100 Words)

“Wake up,” Christie whispered in Garet’s ear. He groaned, rolling over. In his half asleep state, he didn’t register the urgency in Christie’s voice. “Wake, up,” Christie said, punching Garet’s arm, “it’s the Alarm.” Garet woke up fully. The Alarm shouldn’t be going off. The Alarm wouldn’t sound unless there was something very, very wrong.… Continue reading Awake (100 Words)

Six Words (100 Words)

“Will you marry me, Alysia Renay?” Six words. Supposedly six, life changing words. And they were life changing.

Idealism – (From the Archives)

It’s not what happened, or who they were, or what they did. You remember the best bits because you want to. You want to get to the good bits, you ignore the bad, you ignore the times when you felt rubbish. You almost wonder, why did I cut them out of my life? You know… Continue reading Idealism – (From the Archives)

Fantasy to Inspire (Opinion Blog)

“It’s just a book.” If there is one phrase that incites rage in me in is that one. The fact that a book, a story, is nothing more than just a story. It’s just made up. It’s not got meaning.
