6. First Chair of Opportunity

Stacy could barely keep her eye one. The heat generated by the many bodies crammed into the small room combined with the droning voice of the presenter to create an atmosphere ideal for sleep. With considerable effort she managed to pry it open for the thousandth time since the seminar’s commencemen...

Excerpt from Book 2

Ai’s dreams progressed along their forced course through her memories, glossing over much of the events of the days following the escape. Whatever guided the rifling did stop to view tragic events which transpired only two days later at the Slum Districts gates. For two days Brother Alfons kept Sist...

A Soul's Guilt

You were sick and in constant pain. Every day a challenge that shone through your eyes, But you were always there when I needed to talk. Soon your suffering grew too much to watch, So a trip we took. You were so excited, your tail wagging. Like a puppy you tried to jump around, But age and pain were...

Humanity Lost

Humanity Lost The World so vibrant and warm, Yet I pull away. Sounds that once brought pleasure No longer appeal. Gentle words from those I love Now only breed deeper ire. Where has my humanity gone? Why does the frigged mechanical workings Of my mind call me? Help! I drown in the endless Spirals of...

Why did we think we were God?

Why did we ever think we could play God? First it was the systematic targeting of the unborn that tested positive for unwanted traits. Then we arrogantly experimented with natural selection by monitoring lab fertilized eggs and eliminated those that developed in ways that were unwanted. We developed...

Spider

I am dead. Not a death of body or soul but one one joy. This death did not come upon me suddenly, no it lured me in with gentle words and sweet tasting kisses that blinded to the danger of the tangled web I approached. Once captured I lived in my cocoon as one joyful pursuits after another was strip...

Do Not Cry Mother Fore I Am Home

Mother why do you cry? Is it because you miss my hugs, Or my tantrums? Do you miss my nightmares, Or the endless requests for drinks of water? Mother please don’t cry. Remember when I thought monsters were in my closet? You came like an Angel and help me believe they weren’t real. Remember on my fir...

In a land ravaged by storms of wild magic and rampaging horrors there exists an oasis of calm respite; this was the City of Twelve Spires. In this place the forces of Good wage their war against Evil, yet all know they dare not seek ultimate victory. Here, in a bizarre twist of fate, the people desp...

Session 5

A gentle rain fell sorrowfully upon twelve newly filled graves. Each drop seemed to touch the packed earth and roll down the mounds like tears on a living cheek. It was as though the world itself mourned the loss of lives to such senseless violence. Shaking his spectral head the watching spirit move...

To Wicker? Or not to Wicker?

It was a beautiful day with not a cloud to marr the pristine azure glory of the horizon. Occasionally a gust of wind would stir Tiag's beard and bring the pleasant smell of mountain pines to him, but he was unable to enjoy the view or the smells. No, he, a dwarf, clung desperately to the sides of a ...
