Chapter Thirty Four - Confrontations
"I told you, I'm alright. Stop asking."
"You're not alright." Alistair stared me down as I concentrated on stuffing my bedroll into my pack, perhaps a little more forcefully than usual. After our run-in with bandits and subsequently, the rogue delivery elf, I had told my traveling companions just enough to quell their curiosity of what had passed between Zevran and I while they were gone. They weren't idiots; they knew I was holding back. But they also knew from my darkened demeanor that more information wouldn't be forthcoming, so they reluctantly let the matter drop. That didn't keep Alistair from poking and prodding me every chance
The Vampire Court - May 29, 2015“The body was found, Prince,” Roderick hissed with ill temper as he paced. His pale eyes held Ileana’s regard from across the well-appointed room. “The body of the person your Childe consumed,” he added, and paused to glance yet again at the figure who stood behind the prince’s right shoulder.The Vampire Court - May 29, 20159 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Although the blonde man was clad in a white dress blouse and black slacks, there was little disguising his lack of refinement. Who he was, Roderick knew not, only that he was new to court, and that he had brought a rather monstrous looking weapon. Ileana’s new pet? The man’s large hands rested on the decorative butt of the Great Axe, while the head was balanced on the man’s polished shoe.
Regardless, Roderick was emboldened by the soft mutter of agreement from those gathered. During his many years at court, he had always been respectful to the Prince. Now, his tone was questioning, almost demanding. Ileana had broken the covenant, rega

Gerard Haywood never did like headsets. They made his ears hurt at his last job, and that wasn’t counting the screeching white noise he had to deal with. The fact that he was wearing a clumsy diving helmet didn’t help matters.
A five-foot-eleven man of African-American descent, Gerard was average in size and stature, but physical strength wasn’t the key to his success. That little wonder lay within his smooth, hairless cranium. He was a gifted man, always had been. Sure, it didn’t save him from schoolyard bullies back in the day, but look at him now. Gerard was all too proud of his accomplishments, and this latest venture of his would be no different.
Gerard didn’t quite know why, but he was tied to the sea. Perhaps it was the frequent childhood visits to the Georgia Aquarium, or perhaps those memorable fishing trips to his great-uncle’s lakefront property. The Atlanta native hardly e

“Never before in my life have I met a bigger fool than you, Ronald Thompson.”
The President of the Los Angeles Robotics Institute was often described as a ‘planet of a man.’ He was rotund, to say the least, with a bald head to match his body. He was dark-skinned, and his teeth shone like stars in the night, even when he was chastising you, and he never held that back if you’ve done something wrong. Not in a million years. Ronald sat in his seat across from the President, face blushing with shame. Sentrie sat to his left, an intensely attentive statue.
“First, you take this invitation without my input. Need I remind you, Ronald, who is in charge of LARI? Your team is only a small part of our business. You arrive unprepared, understaffed, and you drag poor Frederick through the mud to get him there. Now he’s bedridden with some awful cold. I blame you for th

The lady stood up very slowly and just gave a stare of discuss to Shay. She wore ragged clothes that made her look like a punk. Her eyes a shade of light brown and her build average. She shouted “How dare you speak about her with such a tone! You and this government is the reason my best friend is dead!”
Shay looked back at her a bit shocked about the sudden outburst coming Laura. “You don’t think I don’t remember that day that we lost a third of the group! There was nothing I could do, the lab was already lock down when the walls….”
“You could have lifted the lock down or broken down the door!” Laura yelled at him, her eyes burning like a nuclear reactor. She stood ready to attack but instead fell to the floor of the train and broke down in tears.
“I did try. The codes were changed from inside the lab. Nothing I could do Laura, I feel the pain of losing her too. I think it is time for this to stop and for y
Persephone's Message“And here we are at what could be the moment of the century. After one hundred and seventeen years, the entity called Persephone is about to speak. My team is on the very border of Persephone's inhibition zone, and I can tell you that the tension here is beyond palpable. After such a long period of enforced isolation- wait I think I see something. Yes on the long range scopes we have a figure approaching, it seems to be humanoid in form, and unarmed.Persephone's Message5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
The M.S forces seem to have spotted the figure as well they are mobilizing and... somebody is going out there, a person or persons unknown has entered the inhibition zone in a sealed skimmer and is approaching the figure. I can't see the zone reacting yet, could this incursion be planned? The pilot appears to be talking to the figure and the figure no, the figure is continuing on foot as the skimmer returns. The pilot looks to be from the M.S though the skimmer is unmarked. The figure is now in sight from our position and appear to b
