Chapter 3.43 – More Meat

Seth Grimm had faced a number of arduous challenges in his time on the planet, from false accusation to imprisonment, but he’d take another three decades in solitary confinement if, for once, he could just get his bloody fledgling out of the door on time. It had taken almost an hour to get to thisContinue reading “Chapter 3.43 – More Meat”

Chapter 3.42 – A Brew or Two

After a long, cold night in the dank forest of Forgotten Hollow, Sage had finally arrived home. She stretched her aching legs and cracked her stiff back as her old bones groaned and protested back to position. Oh, how she longed for her bed, the soft eiderdown and the plump, duck feather pillows. She sighed.Continue reading “Chapter 3.42 – A Brew or Two”

Chapter 3.41 – New Digs

Warning: Very morbid. Contains graverobbing, vandalism, open graves and talk of death. “Isn’t it a thing of beauty?” Bernard, the groundskeeper, said in a not-too-convincing manner as he sensed the pair approach from behind him. “A fitting monument to an icon. And in my humble grounds. An honour. Yep, that’s what it is.” Lilith shrugged.Continue reading “Chapter 3.41 – New Digs”

Chapter 3.40 – Irritant

Jessica’s scalp was so itchy. When she’d first been presented with her MAD hat she’d felt pretty good in it. She was fully starting to embrace the ‘wear whatever makes you happy’ mantra of her fellow GliTS, almost starting to like her starched, polyester poodle skirt and the little static shocks she got periodically fromContinue reading “Chapter 3.40 – Irritant”

Chapter 3.39 – Neon Nightmare

For the night’s hunt, Seth had taken Faith to a club that, previously, she could only have dreamed of being allowed in to: the Orange Box. Faith had dressed up for the occasion and was excited to mingle with the kind of people who were allowed into a club that had a dress code, butContinue reading “Chapter 3.39 – Neon Nightmare”

Chapter 3.38 – The Butler Code

Disclaimer: Drugs mention, tiny bit of blood. Broof had never before been into the forests of Forgotten Hollow, but he had, of course, heard all about them. As he and Lilith made their way along overgrown paths and through ever-thickening trees, Broof’s shoes became muddied and his field of vision became smaller. As the darknessContinue reading “Chapter 3.38 – The Butler Code”

Chapter 3.37 – Decipher

She could get used to this. Lilith had taken a long, hot shower – a blessing, as Caleb had often used up all the hot water before Lilith got her turn – and she’d settled down on the neat little sofa, in the pristine room in the quiet and minimalist house to leaf through anotherContinue reading “Chapter 3.37 – Decipher”

Chapter 3.36 – My Foot

The winding path up the steep hillside was almost too much for the bearded, sleep-deprived witch. Only the promise of what was waiting for him at the peak of this hill motivated him to continue to climb it, instead of rolling back down to his parked car – that he was probably not in aContinue reading “Chapter 3.36 – My Foot”

Chapter 3.35 – Question Everything

Jessica jolted herself awake a second before her face would’ve hit her desk. She shook her head and gave herself a hard smack on the cheek, but it was a poor substitute for a full energy bar. The previous night had taken its toll. After Beth had arrived – with a little old lady inContinue reading “Chapter 3.35 – Question Everything”

Chapter 3.34 – Prince Charming

Warning: Non-consent. Violence. The stench of nacho cheese and coke-soaked carpet permeated Faith’s materialising nostrils. As the fog around her solidified into an actual place, she couldn’t decide if she was really excited or bitterly disappointed. “Why are we here?” she asked, looking around at the silent arcade. “Money is a little tight, so IContinue reading “Chapter 3.34 – Prince Charming”
