Francis' Patrol

Francis’ moved cautiously through the wintery forest. His ears flicked at the sound of the wind moving through the trees. He was startled as a clump of snow feel from the branches nearby. He turned and glanced up at the sun. It had only been a short time when he came down the Eastern Forest. He still had much ground to cover if he was going to met Vincent at the hillside. He lifted his head up higher and broke into a brisk trot. I need to stay focused. You are part of the greatest herd in all of Cheviline and you will gain respect from father when you complete this patrol. He turned down a furrow in the woods and carefully walked over several tree roots, taking care not to tangle his legs. After a while he looked up at the sun again. He frowned. It should be the end of the trail soon! No. No. It’s clearly marked. Why should I be worrying? He gasped as his left hoof lost its grip on the ground beneath him. He looked at the surface and realised that he was standing on frozen

Hack continued to back until he saw the familiar tree roots and heard the sound of flowing water. He no longer saw the glowing eyes of the griffins, but he still held the torch as high as he could. He felt a sigh of relief when he saw the two stakes embedded in the side of the chasm. He turned and held his torch over to try and make out the rope bridge. Oh no. He heard the harsh cry of a griffin penetrate the light. They were still out there. He moved and began to back onto the rope bridge. His throat tightened as he felt the bridge begin to sway under his feet. He held one paw high in the air with the torch while the other gripped the support rope with the other paw. He winced as the pain from his wounded shoulder ran up his neck. The bridge swayed even more when he shuffled his legs in his awkward crab walk. He could hear the flapping of wings and make out the glistening claws of the griffins on the bank, but they never veered closer to into the torchlight. He tried to shuffle

O

Our Lord Reigns

Throughout the ages and the reigns of kings Throughout the golden ages and civilisations The Lords word stands, and his deeds are told His glory shines, and the faithful sing His words are passed from ear to ear In the times of suffering and revolt In the times of ignorance, and crumpling of nations The Lord spirit is poured, and his arms ever holding His grace is the light in the darkness His truth is the rock in the storm His kingdom will endure forever He is the king that has seen the beginning and end He is faithful in the night and comforter in the day The giants will fall with the courage of the faithful He calls us to walk without fear on the waters. Our Lord is our King forever and ever!

The steady crunching of leaves and twigs broke the silence in an otherwise serene forest. A B2 Super battle droid stood out in contrast to the greenery flanked by two B1 battle droids marching down a dried gully filled with leaf matter. “Why are we doing these patrols anyway?” One of the B1’s asked. “Because we’re guarding a top-secret facility and it’s our job for it to stay secure!” The second answered. “But if it’s top secret then we wouldn’t have to do these patrols! Isn’t it enough that we scan the atmosphere for approaching ships?” “I reckon you just like

Gift- Unexpected allies

The Trasan were everywhere, the fortress was weakening and the defenders were becoming fewer and fewer by the second. The blue scaled reptiles were moving in from all sides of the once mighty fortress, their plasma weapons fired barrages of colorful fire that blasted through all but the thickest cover. The defenders, mostly mammals, returned fire with ballistic weapons, and a few captured Trasan weapons. The skies were filled with diving hellbats, the small fighter craft of the Trasan as they made strafing and bombing runs, each attack seemed to have less and less antiaircraft fire replying against them. It was hopeless. But a matter of time before the place was overrun and the defenders slaughtered to the last. Some of the more eager Trasan were already circumventing barriers. Among the ragged defenders forced on the retreat as the gunfire zipped around was a trio of wolves. “There’s too many of them Zack!” This from a female wielding a metal quarterstaff. “We’ve got to hold

My Bio
I'm a bloke living off the beaten track.
Close to the area in which I live there is tropical rainforest and numerous creeks and mountain tracks.
As such I have a strong affinity for nature and for the local wildlife. I also have an interest in history. Generally more of a focus on Australian History. This kind of background led me to studying development planning.
I enjoy a good story and want to take up writing as a creative hobby. As well as explore new ideas and artwork.
Pending lecture breaks I might post something every now and then.
I enjoy sci-fi and have seen most of the classic such as Star Wars and Trek.
A recent interest is fantasy and action! I'm trying to write with these in mind
