Forever in the Underworld, chapter IV

With my descision to stay in the underworld, life takes an unexpected turn.

This is the first night in a long time that I lay my eyes upon my lover. I have heard him several nights in a row, calling my name and wandering restlessly through the deep forest. My instincts tell me that I should approach him cautiously. Let him see just a hint of me before retreating again. Make him desire and follow me. Cultivate his lust like a farmer grows his crops. Play his...Read On

Chuck and the Bad Prank

A Halloween prankster makes a bad choice for his target

"What do you have against the old widow anyway?" The gang was at happy hour across from the college campus, and Chuck had just announced his intention to toss eggs and stink bombs at the home of the local psychic.  The woman was 70 if she was a day, and nobody knew why Chuck would care other than wanting to do something for Halloween. "She's old, she's ugly, she's got that really...Read On

Forever in the Underworld, chapter VI

My first hand experience of the powers that inhabit a nymph's body.

The first feelings of doubt have entered my mind. I have never felt this before. My life is miserable, but I have never regretted my decisions before. Why does this come to me now? What has triggered these emotions? I cannot find the answer. Stilling the hunger has become my only relief on these dark nights. I think of her every day. Even the wonders of the forest cannot hold my...Read On

The Demon Eloc - Part4

Eve finally gets the answers she has been seeking.

There were only a few things scheduled for the morning and none interested me very much, so I decided I would take one last look around for Lina, and make some more inquiries about Eloc. I was told for a fact he was there and had been at some of the events I attended. As for Lina, I still wasn’t sure she was here, but I knew what I had seen. She had looked directly at me and smiled and then...Read On

Misty McCoy and a Matter of Time

She was pushing forty, but wore the teenage cheerleader's uniform with style.

All of us folks up in Coon’s Hollow had heard tell of the tall tales about Misty McCoy’s long gone grandmother. The oldster struck most of us mountain dwellers as a bit mite peculiar with regard to her actual biological age and her appearance at different stages of her life. I had not personally witnessed granny McCoy’s strange outward look of a teenaged female right up into her mid-forties...Read On

The defiling of a Gorgon 2/2

Rand takes control back and shows her what humans are made of.

He backhanded her on the cheek, hard. To vindicate his lackeys or just by plain stupidity he didn't know. But the latter was more likely. It rang through many layers of silence, only to end in the agonizing stillness of bodies. The first body belonged to a man who nurtured trifling hopes of surviving but still, grinned. The other body, far more elegant and exquisite, it belonged to...Read On

The Last Bookshop - Fellowship's End

The fellowship meets, yet hubris is the deadly pride before a fall.

Boldly in broad daylight, Dominic Carshalton calmly approached the cellar door and forced his way in.  As their harbinger of their doom, his intuition bayed for blood.  Someone, a woman, called out for Coulter.  A locked kitchen door proved no barrier when he blasted the lock with his revolver.  He expected his powers to be ineffectual in the house yet his intuition mocked the fear in...Read On

The Haunted Library, Part I

I shut the door behind me to the largish room too small for all the materials inside it and turned on a lamp I had put on a small table nearby. The door locked shut behind me, secluding me in my office and my job for the duration, and as long as I didn’t fuck up, it would house and feed me and in the end provide a dissertation for me. The Truscott Collection was a miscellaneous mass...Read On

The Last Bookshop - The Muse

Harry's world crashes down around him, can he find a way out and find the muse?

He caught himself in the mirror and backpedalled. Dark, sunken rings around pink fatigued eyes glared back. His waxy pallor, the colour of plain paper and his skin, the texture of gruel haunted him.  Wearily, he carried a pained and troubled countenance.  His limp hair aged him and he rubbed at the abrasive stubble on his chin. The long abominable night never felt lonelier as he stared from...Read On

The Last Bookshop - Omega and Alpha

Offered his chance at redemption by the promise of a muse, will Harry take it?

Their black eyes shimmered as a dark terror rendered him immobile.  An existential cry for help drowned in the deluge of panic that filled his mind.  His paralysed vocal chords felt so numb and useless, and his leaden limbs refused to move. Forward they advanced, self-assured with each step, their impassive faces certain they had their transgressor.  Digging deep, the tardy swell of...Read On

The Last Bookshop - The Man in the Bawdy House

It is time for Harry to understand the Cremorne's intent, its demands unsettles them all.

Wisps of steam rose from the inky black and he looked into the swirling void.  Its juxtaposition with the anodyne white made it look more brooding and malevolent.  He wondered back to those dangerous days and how adversity threw them together.  The teaspoon clattered against the saucer and he checked his wristwatch.  Yvette Piper was late and he had no idea why.  It did not take much these...Read On

The Haunted Library, Part II

The next week passed with a full workload for both of us; Jacqueline had to prepare for tests while I had gotten into the swing of my work and was making sustained progress. The following Friday she came again about 12:45 to the room, and at about 1:15 the light finally shone again. We moved into position and Jacqueline gasped in surprise. I sat down beside her and stared in surprise...Read On
