First Encounter

“You seem lost.” She prevented a scream. A man stood right behind her, towered really. He wore a cloak with a hood he’d pulled down over his face. Just like her. “Yes… I was heading to the temple.” “Newly arrived.” She nodded. “I’m going there myself; shall I guide you?” “That’d be really kind.” He…

Gold Digger

Sitting at his desk, Nicholas’ hand betrayed the merest hint of impatience, a feeling he’d come to associate with Edward. It wasn’t the solicitor’s fault but Nicholas had deemed the issue of his brother’s will resolved almost a year before. Unfortunately it seemed his brother had spoken to his mistress about the terms of his…

Wordle #127 ~ Impending Rescue

Lord Worthington wiped the thin film of sweat that covered his brow despite the cool temperature. It distracted him from the fact he was ready to knock his man on the head to silence him. Jasper’s eschatological discourses were getting on Worthington’s nerves. And a quick glance around him revealed he was not the only…

Banned ~ Return

She hovered on the edge, hesitating. She’d come here; she might as well go all the way. And yet… what would she meet if she did? Censure most probably. She wasn’t supposed to be here. She knew it very well. And yet, who could blame her for coming? She bit her lips; she may not…

Ho ~ A Duke’s Honour

He supported his sister-in-law, as her maid disrobed her. Although he cared not to take a look, there was no avoiding the purple marks about her neck. These were handprints; someone tried to choke the Duchess. And from what he had understood tonight, his brother most certainly was responsible for this. Could it be Edward…

Gifts from Mr. Sandman/Trust ~ World Traveller

She was holding Marco’s arm as he led her through the streets leading to the forum. She’d walked here many times but never giggling foolishly as they were doing right now. She could barely see where she put her feet trusting Marco to guide her. A foolish idea too though since he was even more…

Talisman/Realize ~ Selfless Choice

She woke up in a soft bed, luxuriant silk caressing her skin. She kept her eyes closed enjoying the feeling of the soft and fluid cloth over her arms and legs. Had it all been a dream? It seemed so real. The pain, the losses… They still hurt; even if they weren’t real. She opened…

Test ~ In The Face of Danger…

She took a deep breath: fear had been her constant companion since she arrived in the city. This was merely another test of her resolve, of her power. But it was one that demanded a greater sacrifice. Her soul; well she was exaggerating but one could do so when fear threatened to overwhelm them. She…

Lost ~Meeting

She slipped out almost an hour before sunrise, when nobody was yet awake. She’d grabbed some provisions the night before; breakfast she could eat on the way. She’d done that before. She held her bag close; she wasn’t too familiar with the city but she’d learned in the past that you never knew where or…

Storm ~ Punishment

Deina was observing her best friend in a completely new way; there was so much power within him now. She knew that even if she tried she would not be able to compell him. It was both frightening and fascinating: he was so appealing clothed in fire and yet… It meant that he had come…
