Predators and Preys

In this jungle, there were hunters and preys; more often than not it was easy to recognize both sorts. But unlike other wild environments, one little moment could change the circumstances of the individuals. While it was rare for a prey to become a predator, one decision could turn the latter into a hunted. These…

From Blog to Book

She’d always been shy, awkward in her own skin. Years of bullying at school had made her even more afraid of interacting with new people, or not new for that matter. From shy, she’d gone solitary, remote. Some who didn’t know her thought she believed herself better than her peers. She didn’t but her peers…

Unknown Celebrity

Ms. Heiligenschein unfailingly lived up to her name; her blond curls framed her lovely face like a halo and she exuded an aura that scintillated. Ever since she came up on the scene, she’d lit up any place she entered, any event she attended: almost literally.  She was a photographer’s dream; svelte yet with curves…

Disappointing Victory

The neon glow enveloped the city built by and for corporations. From the penthouse he staid in, he smiled. In the end, he would win. He didn’t even have to try that hard. He merely had to spread crumbs here and there; they had done the rest. He laughed; they called him the Tempter but…

Betrayed

He didn’t want to do it, but what choice did he have? If he didn’t go, his father would punish him. It was better not to think of the punishments. Although it was hard to deny their consequences. He was still limping from the last. So up he went into the tower where she stayed,…

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…

Ghost Town

The Hellbox wore its name perfectly; situated right next to the town’s abandoned old newspapers offices, it usually filled with the city’s rejects by the end of the day.  Once it was a busy, buoyant place where you could expect the owner to welcome you with her heavily accented voice and most seductive smile. She would…

Fish out of Water

Jonathan was bold maybe even reckless in this. Though Nathaniel should probably think of him as Lord Caldwell now. Impossible he thought with a smile. The two of them had been friends too long. Still it didn’t matter his friend was now Duke of Lincolnshire, he should know the Set well enough. They would never…

A Life to Bargain

Dolan sat by the well, nursing his bruised ego. He cursed his parents for bestowing such a portentous name upon him. It wasn’t fair. He was smaller than most youth his age; some girls were even taller than him. They all tyrannized him, taunting him for being weak. He was supposed to be a man…
