Chapter 2.37 – Wicked Way

Faith had been having such a great time lounging around on the deck of the yacht that Seth had stolen. She’d been sipping champagne she’d found in the cooler – imagining the taste because she’d never actually tried champagne when she was alive – and pretending that she was the wife of a millionaire, cruisingContinue reading “Chapter 2.37 – Wicked Way”

Chapter 2.35 – Killer Heels

Disclaimer: one screenshot that, in context only, is very disturbing. Caleb looked between the two girls carefully before he replied, focusing entirely on April, his voice unusually cold, “Yes, I got a job. I start tomorrow at the flower shop. Perhaps not quite as interesting as a secret agent but it’ll certainly put food onContinue reading “Chapter 2.35 – Killer Heels”

Chapter 2.34 – The Wrong Way

After taking yet another tiny, barely thirst-quenching drink from Danny, Melinda had tucked the poor boy up into the basement bed and retreated to the living room with April. Caleb had yet to return from his job interviews and Faith had been upstairs all day, obsessing over her outfit for her date with Seth theContinue reading “Chapter 2.34 – The Wrong Way”

Chapter 2.28 – Reason To Fail

Despite her last memory being of the inside of a taxi, the second Lilith awoke, she knew exactly where she was. Band posters and portrait sketches on the wall, the light scent of candied violets on the pillow and almost everything she could see was orange. This was Melinda’s room which meant that she wasContinue reading “Chapter 2.28 – Reason To Fail”

Chapter 2.24 – Ego Blow

“Lorna Broad-Castor here, still somehow awake and continuing your 24/7 coverage of the Sandy Moss Murder story. Eagle-eyed viewers among you may notice that a clock has been added to the screen, enabling those of you who are fully immersed in this story to now remember what day it is and allowing me to slowlyContinue reading “Chapter 2.24 – Ego Blow”

Chapter 2.21 – Common Ground

Lilith looked around the pub, checking every wall before she entered. The plush, beer-soaked carpets, dated panelled walls and general dinginess of this place were outweighed by the two things it had in its favour. Or rather, didn’t have. No CCTV and not a single foil-headed freak to be seen. Not a single other patron,Continue reading “Chapter 2.21 – Common Ground”

Chapter 2.15 – Bad Influence

Faith closed the motel door behind her and tried to form some words. She had known from the second that Seth appeared that everything was going to go completely to shit. It was written on the wall that Melinda would hate him and from Caleb and Lilith’s reactions, it would stand to reason that theyContinue reading “Chapter 2.15 – Bad Influence”

Chapter 2.01 – Embrace Disgrace

“Thanks for that, Bob. We’ll have more on the potential alien toddler invasion in Strangerville later, but first on to our top story. “The search continues for April Moss, 18, daughter of the late superstar Sandy Moss. It is believed that April is in the company of her two friends who are also missing; theyContinue reading “Chapter 2.01 – Embrace Disgrace”

Chapter 1.50 – Monumental Fuck-Up

It had been a gruelling day with the police and the journalists and it was gone midnight when Chuck finally opened the door to their home. Babs had made a beeline for the television leaving Chuck to his thoughts. Melinda was eighteen, an adult who had left by her own volition. There was only soContinue reading “Chapter 1.50 – Monumental Fuck-Up”

Chapter 1.23 – Foil In The Microwave

April missed her reflection. She was hoping that she was putting lipstick on in the right place. Faith was beside her, trying to apply eyeliner. “This is such a disaster,” April sighed. Faith looked at April’s face. “Well, you have some on your fangs but otherwise it’s fine.” April ran her tongue over her teeth.Continue reading “Chapter 1.23 – Foil In The Microwave”
