It's What You Need

Sometimes it takes a goddess and a hero to show you what you need.

It’s not what you think you want, but what you need… "The Greek and Roman gods were notorious for intervening in mortal affairs. Much unlike the deities of today’s religions, the Greek and Roman gods had mortals they hated, favored, and loved. Sometimes they helped these mortals, sometimes they hindered them." Rachel O’Hare sighed. She ran her fingers through her still damp brown hair...Read On

Fevered Dreams

An ancient mansion holds a mysterious woman, her hulking manservant, and their secret pleasures.

The silver van meandered through the sweeping bends of an oldgravel road. Shadows swept and danced through the trees’ towering trunks in the dim early morning haze. The passing headlights disturbed the undergrowth; the creatures and leaves stirring under its gaze and scattering back to the shadow. Tyres crunched over stones, the engine gusting along at a whisper as its driver held his breath...Read On

Road To Nowhere

Where am I?

The windscreen wipers tore back and forth but their efforts were futile against the deluge. The storm was monstrous. What started as spots of rain dotting the windscreen had developed into a full-blown meteorological onslaught. Rain hammered down and a savage wind battered the hedgerows, bending branches low over the road. Thorny foliage caught in the wipers, scraped arcs across...Read On

Bus Crash

Dakota's homecoming isn't what she expected.

Dakota Hastings boarded the bus and sat near the back. She hated riding the bus, but it was the only form of long-distance transportation she could afford to get back her parents’ house. She knew she would be given the I told you so  lecture from her parents, but it didn’t matter. They said she could come back and that was all that cared about her now. Dakota called her parents with a...Read On

Night Music

I first glimpsed Aspenwald in the early spring when everything still seemed dead. A month earlier, I had buried my father and, with him, all of my joy. Every plan I had for the future was dashed and every hope ground to powder. The black tracings of bone-bare trees along the drive to the main house and the gray, unpromising stone of the mansion suited my mood. Uncle Henry wasn't a...Read On

Serpent’s Kiss

She wants you. Body and soul.

Darkness had fallen and the air was heavy with humidity. As lanterns cast their glow and threw shadows about the narrows, I struggled to keep my skirts from the ground and my shoes from sinking in the mud. All the while, the demon crawled beneath my skin. I had not remained in the company of Émilienne for long, but she had taught me enough. I knew that the Blackness would appear every...Read On

The Devil’s Harem: The Curse Of The Joshua Tree

Take Her Down to Paradise City Pt. 3

One final wish...

Lena sat behind her desk at work, smiling fondly at the framed photo of Arion and herself which stood before her. She could hardly believe it had been so long since she'd first received the magic jukebox. 2015 was coming to an end and she realized with every passing day, she would lose him soon. The thought broke her heart and caused her to tear up. She wouldn't allow herself to break down...Read On

The Devil Inside- Part II: Lucifer's Sanctuary

Her darkness will be her undoing...His love will only nurture that darkness...

“ Hi, you’ve reached Davina Faire… Please leave your name and number after the tone …” “Well, fuck it!” Stephen cursed out loud as he hung up and chucked his phone in the laundry basket. His fiancé, Phoebe, stepped out of the bathroom, wrapped in a white bathrobe and regarded him with a cross expression. “What the hell is wrong this time?” She sounded annoyed. “I’ve been trying to...Read On

The Devil Inside- Part I: The Possession of Davina Faire

Her darkness will be her undoing...His love will only nurture that darkness...

Love seems to rely on self-deception. Relationships are for idiotic breeders. It’s all bullshit, if you ask me. People constantly lie to each other and stab each other in the back; they break their promises and break one another. Their infidelities destroy their “picture perfect” family, and their selfishness eradicates all the noble virtues of love. That’s why I’ve been single for so long....Read On

The Miracle of Christmas

The Miracle of Christmas Another sleepless night, another Christmas fraught with worry. There wouldn't be many packages to open for the kids this year.

Schulrod's Curse

~ Sex is the one bond that binds true love together

Once upon a time and far away in the small town of Desiter, there was an old man with an incredible story to tell. Everyone in the village thought him an old fool, but a fool he was not. For he had a plan that he had put into motion years ago. "Glamora Tregares was a very unusual girl,” began the old traveler, Schulrod Ghet. "She was different and quite strange," he said, making ugly...Read On

Desire's Cage

His kiss was her every desire, and she was the key to the lock of his cage.

His tongue rasps on her throat, and finds the soft juncture between her neck and shoulder. She sighs deeply and runs her nails down his back. Wrapping her legs tightly around his waist, she nuzzles his ear; he licks and kisses more on her neck, running his sharp teeth over her vein. She knows what he wants. But she won’t let him have it, not yet. She pulls his mouth back to her,...Read On

Amelia's Story: Rebirth into the Night

Chapter Two of Two

Even before I open my eyes, I can feel how fuzzy my head is. I’m not in any pain, and I can’t remember what happened to me. I went into this darkness and couldn’t climb out. More worrisome is that now I don’t know where I am. I rub my eyes and search for Charles. Then I see him sitting at the far end of the room. He is pretending to read, but I know he’s watching over me. I sit up from...Read On

The shop had a couple of experienced managers as well and they were very helpful in keeping the shop going. It was...Read On

The Power of Blood

The power of blood comes with a price - and not one you would have expected.

Beginning in ancient history, layers of myths have been wrapped around the truth about my kind; darkest mysteries and unspeakable horrors have been whispered in the darkness of the night until nobody living was able to discern truth from lie, and now only the mention of our name brings fear and nightmares. It is that fear that cloaks the nature of our existence and keeps us safe, keeps me safe. ...Read On

The Werewolf

Is there a werewolf in the woods, or something worse?

Jess-Belle opened the door, something she'd never dared do on a night like this. It was easier than she expected, but a knot of fear still drew tight in her stomach. The little clock on the mantle chimed midnight. Moonlight filtered through the stirring pines. It a nice night, but no one in their right mind would be out. No one but Jess-Belle, and even she hesitated before stepping over...Read On

Work on a children's ward is getting to Helen. Can she strike a bargain with an angel?

“I wish I had hair like yours, Helen.” Helen looked at little Holly, the child’s bald head shining in the hospital lights, and had to fight back tears. “When you’re well again, little one, you can have hair down to your knees. I’ll even help you plait it.” “It’s ok, Helen.” Holly smiled a smile too wise and sad for a ten-year-old.”I don’t think I’m going to get better. But I love your...Read On

Sandcastles

Written with love for a pretty girl

Golden sun covered the turquoise sea, white waves brushing the sand heading out from the line where she knelt, scooping great pits there just below where the fluffy white stuff I was sat upon merged with the firm apron of beige. Oblivious to those around her, she worked at her play, building with her chosen medium. I watched her from the lazy comfort of our sheet, spread upon the heated...Read On

Claimed

It was time that she became what she was meant to be, his.

There was something so familiar. This was not the first time she had looked into the intensity of those ice grey eyes, Asia was certain of it. Who could forget such a hauntingly unique color, the distinct clarity, the way they seemed to bore through her and create a rush that could only be compared to actual physical intimacy. The fact that he was a stranger and on the opposite end of the...Read On

London's Burning

One trip to London brings love, fire, romance and heartbreak.

From inside the pressurised, air-conditioned solitude and comfort of the black cab, my feet alighted at last on the wet street. Damp was something London did well. My bones shivered in their skin to feel the heavy weight of the city's gloom on them once more; it was not a feeling I relished. I looked up, casting my eyes about the grey and ominous sky with trepidation. There was a large...Read On

The Curious Tale of Kitty Meowenstein

What would happen if you woke up as a witch?

No world existed beyond the spill of cold light from the car headlamps. A midnight shroud had settled, smothering the land in a gloom where only dim glimmers and deep dark shadows existed. Storm clouds loomed menacingly in the nighttime sky, threatening a downpour that no living soul would wish to be caught in.

This was the last place I wanted to be stuck in, especially to be held captive by Him. I know I didn’t lead a very exemplary life when I was alive, but did it really warrant this kind of punishment?
