CB&W: Trees

They huddle beneath the sheltering branches, hidden from view by tangled growth. Soon they'll have to move - their pursuers won't have given up so easily - but for now they sleep in restless slumber, recovering their strength for the struggle ahead. Their dreams are haunted by dark figures who laugh as blood cascades over a... Continue Reading →

FFfAW: Seven PM

Seven PM Edmund stood on the shoreline. Waiting. It was something he was good at. As a child he'd waited for his father, watching the ticking clock. At seven pm, daily, the man would hear the governess' report, granting him a fragment of his time: a smile, a question, a word of praise... if the report was fair.

FFfAW: Sidelines

Sidelines Jenny hurried past the sports field with her head down, eyes fixed on the path before her. The hubbub of the players stirred memories she'd rather ignore. Plus, he was there. She could hear his voice, bellowing orders over the field. She could feel the weight of his knowing gaze. She'd spent so many hours standing on the sidelines, cheering...

FFfAW: The Children

The Children "For your disregard of our laws-" "Father, please," Lia said, tears flowing. But no trace of her doting parent was visible. It was the High Councillor who faced her: stern and forbidding as he passed sentence. "-you are hereby banished." Her hand tightened on the pony's reins, and she avoided looking at the children on the... Continue Reading →

In her youth she'd painted her lips cherry-red, desperate to attract a partner to fulfill her desires, only to be left with a sour taste as their rot spread through her life. Now her season was waning - maybe it was time to reach for the promised fruit alone. This post is for Sonya's... Continue Reading →
