Stay cordial. Chivalry has many guises. She dropped her hands to her side while people rushed through the house. She mustn’t struggle….

Impending Change

The excitement Lucy felt, as she gathered her findings, was palpable. If anyone watched her just then, they would have known something was about to happen. Excited though she was, Lucy calmly went through the list in her head one more time: inkwood, sage, five candles, rosemary, clay and a small knife. That had been…

Hypocrisy

The funeral went by in a waltz of shiny cars, black suits, and choreographed tears.   He stood by unnoticed but taking note of everything. If it weren’t for the circumstances he might have laughed. Not one of the attendants was truly sad.  Oh they all grieved: the money lost, the influence gone, the power scattered. But not…

She would…

Still, it was heart wrenching to look at her. Somehow she seemed more vulnerable now than when he and Nathaniel found her. Maybe because her…

Audition

She shredded the cloth with her knife, before bending it in half, then brutally whipping it against the floor. She then proceeded to cut some cloth and wrap it about her toes carefully. Everything had to be perfect. Ava had been working towards this day for a decade and here it was. Over the years,…

At the Zoo

The giraffes were grazing oblivious to everything and everyone else, yet their apparent disdain for the visitors didn’t deter Andrew in the least. He kept badgering James about the animals, wanting to know everything about the mammals, just as he had with the gibbons. Andrew’s discovery of the city had been at once exhilarating and…

Burn Out

Cass was a nightmare in white silk and pearls. Most people didn’t see it that way; they believed Sarah was jealous and ungrateful. Cass was gorgeous, she was plain. Cass succeeded at everything she did. Sarah was more of a failure, someone you didn’t really want to be associated with. Someone who got lucky to…
