Betrayal - Short Story Part 24After a quick shower, he dries himself off and throws on a pair of boxer shorts he finds in the dresser next to the bed. He glances over at the couch. Her arms neatly crossed under her face, the blanket tangled up around her feet. Figuring she is still asleep, he quietly walks over to her and pulls the blanket up around her body.Betrayal - Short Story Part 246 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
She turns over onto her side, fumbling the blanket from his hands, and opens her eyes. Slightly startled by him standing there, she sits up quickly on the couch.
"I'm sorry....I didn't mean to. I thought you were still asleep and didn't want to wake you.", he begins to apologize.

Betrayal - Short Story Part 23The room is quiet. Not even the sound of their breathing can be heard. A few moments pass and she pushes the fully packed suitcase over to the end of the bed. It nearly falls off to the floor.Betrayal - Short Story Part 236 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
The bed, still stripped of sheets, barren and cold. She lays back and lets out a deep breath. Moving closer to the headboard, she lays on her side and faces the bedroom window, curling her legs up close to her body.
His head still buried in his hands, he looks up for a moment to see what the commotion is, noticing she is laying on the bed. He can tell that she is trembling, her fingers tightly grasping her arms. He stands up, walks over to the closet

The Goosemother Scroll Episode 15The Unspeakable Oath. When the living make a deal with the dead. All who commit such dealings are doomed to serve the Ghosts of Men for a thousand years. For the dead men can claim the bodies of the living, but never their souls... without permission. Such permission Leap granted the spirits when he spoke in the ancient tongue aboard the black ship. In exchange, he asked for safe passage into the Elephant Lands and for the life of his friend. All this Estruthia had seen in the young wolf's eyes, but it was far too late for the priestess' magic to save him.

"Is it really all right for us to be here?" Pyg whispered to the ostrich priestess.
"It is an honor," the priestess answered. "An elephant's invitation to a graveyard is their way of introducing you to their ancestors as a friend. Her majesty is not only paying homage to the ancients but asking them to protect us."
Pyg nodded and watched as the queen and her soldiers wandered wordlessly among the bones, picking them up, curling their trunks around them. Weeks ago, Pyg would have thought it a peculiar cus
The Goosemother Scroll Episode 13The soldiers had prepared for an attack from the skies, but they had not prepared for so many foes. Foes who were better armed and organized than they.

Pyg could not feel sad for all the death around her now. She could only feel anger.
"It just keeps happening!" she said to Leap. "No matter what we do or where we go, trouble is always close behind!"
"You can't look at it like that," Leap told her. "You've lived through all of it so far, haven't you? You were meant for something important, Pyg. Like Father Lo
