Black Heart

Blood Legends: Undead - Episode Twelve Black hole. Black heart. Black everything. I looked up at the night sky. Silvery clouds stretched across the half moon and the stars shone like cryptic messages. Bats soared on silent wings while the sounds of night creatures echoed in my ears. Nothing had changed. Yet, everything had changed. … Continue reading Black Heart

The Void

Blood Legends: Undead - Episode Ten Some moments seemed endless. “Marla!” Dark eyes flickered at me. Ginger-beard licked his lips as he clutched the vial of blood. Void. Some moments were barren of thought. His eyes bored into me. My mouth was a desert.  A thin figure pushed through the hawkers crowding the stairs. A … Continue reading The Void

The Proposition

Blood Legends: Undead - Episode Seven Fail and we were dead. The vampire’s image flashed through my mind. Soulless eyes. It wasn’t even a thought. I was too pumped to think. My nerves felt stringy. My chest throbbed. I bounded up the stairs and every muscle strained. Sweat stung my eyes and almost blinded me … Continue reading The Proposition

Rare Blood

Sun shrugged; her fingers twisted in her lap. “What do you mean? My story isn’t any different from … Continue reading Hollow City

The Hawkers

Any other day, I would have taken extreme care to disguise the sound of the engine, much less leave an obvious … Continue reading The Hawkers

Footprints

Blood Legends Episode One "She had a way of bringing me undone." “Did you ever want to step into someone else’s feet?” I tore my eyes from the gulls screeching above the waves that crashed against the jagged rocks, their wings beating against the briny air as they swooped the water’s surface looking for a meal. … Continue reading Footprints

The Color of Green

“Whatever it is that you’re doing to make him react that way, stop it.” Jill blinked through a thick layer of mascara. She stroked back a long blond curl and shook her head. “If you stop upsetting him, then he won’t hurt you.” Huh? My jaw dropped, my stomach clenching as I looked at her. … Continue reading The Color of Green
