Happy Day?

She was a newlywed; in the time it took to say a few words, she had transformed from a child into a woman.

World Collapsing

Ezariah woke in a bed she knew before opening her eyes wasn’t her own. But it wasn’t the alien furniture that had awakened her, rather the nagging pulse of magic, which seemed to keep her anchored to the bed. In fact she felt as if it kept her attached to the world. She struggled to…

Calling upon a Knight

Abigail looked down at the parchment; threw it in the fire. Nobody could know. She watched it burn to ashes. Inhaling once she stood, just as the front door open. Here goes, she thought. Stay cordial. Chivalry has many guises. She dropped her hands to her side while people rushed through the house. She mustn’t struggle….
