Galaxy Skin – Short

You’re staring off into space again. “I’m bored. That’s all.” The city was grey. The rain was grey. The dust mixing with the water was sludgy on the window sill. A pigeon hunkered down in its nest regarded me with displeasure. Bored? The great and mighty Yezer? Bored! Surely not. “It happens. It’s wet, and…

Fyskar: Ch 22

Snow and ice dripped from thatch eaves, creating slick, muddy tracks in the melt. Rodney’s birlinn docked on the second day of frost break. Thin sheets of ice dances around the hull, squeaking a thin tune over the thunk of wood and slap of rope. Gulls cried in a clear morning, greeting a pale pink…

Polaris Skies: Ch 33 – Final Chapter

They were able to locate an old map of Florgia, long-forgotten behind a convenience store shelf in Pensacola. It proved to be useful in getting them past Tallahassee and Gainesville. Their anticipation and fear rose as they passed by Ocala on 75. It had been completely decimated from incendiaries. Fear prickled as they wondered if…

The Fire in My Blood: Ch 26 – Finally Chapter

NSFW – Erotica The end of the hallway in the warehouse was too far and yet too close. In the shadowed alcove outside what was our now temporary housing, Sanctus pushed me to the wall, demanding a kiss. I obliged if only to feel his body against mine. The temperature was going up under my…

Subgalaxia: Ch 9

Breathing hard, the three found themselves back on Bern’s beach.  Bern wasn’t ready for it when Ishan barreled toward him, catching him in the jaw with a hard right hook.  It threw the connection and Bern, Fane, and Ishan tumbled back onto the grass outside of the warehouse. Corbin and Sophia, sitting next to them,…

Polaris Skies: Ch 32

Yeller opened the door to the townhouse as the first rays of the sun cast hot pink and orange streaks on the low clouds. The beginning smell of decomposition wafted into his sinuses. He looked down at the doorstep as Sven rubbed against his leg. They stalled. On the doorstep lay a dead fox, its…

Fyskar: Ch 21

“So, what’s in the box?” Seonaid asked the following day after breakfast. Eoin had finished plaiting his hair out of the way, leaving it to hang for the day. He was in his blue breeches, having left his shirt off. The Fyskar despised the Southron garment. It was constricting around the throat and pressed his…

The Fire in My Blood: Ch 25

I rolled over to the sky suggesting light at the edges of the tree line. The biodome panels radiated with shimmering greens and purples, creating murky swaths of smudged stars.  The dome was cooling with autumn’s approach. The birds were whispering in the quiet. I pulled together my best clothes and trench coat. With some…

Subgalaxia: Ch 8

“We’re dragging in a pair of men from New Punjab this time, Bern.” Corbin prepared the machines.  Bern, leaning against the door of the lab, nodded his head indifferently. He had been present for over four hundred and fifty pulls so far.  Most had gone down with a tranq and been put into their tanks…

Polaris Skies: Ch 31

NSFW – EROTICA, BDSM play Yeller drew in a muffled gasp, almost dropping the rope in his hand. “This won’t be a good thing, Nat,” he protested, trying to return the equipment. Nat took the bundle, his heart fluttering. Maybe it had been too much to ask after all this time. Yeller pulled him back…
