Chapter 3.28 – Hard-Earned Hat

The forest of Forgotten Hollow, miles from the nearest town and therefore largely unaffected by light pollution, was the darkest place Jessica had ever been. Other than that time she’d hidden in a crate for half a day to infiltrate that mink farm, that is. This situation definitely trumped that one; she could move herContinue reading “Chapter 3.28 – Hard-Earned Hat”

Chapter 3.26 – Cabbage

Warning: This one deals with the death of a child which readers may find upsetting. Also, Lilith is wankered (again). In an effort to both fill her endless time and avoid bumping into anyone she knew, after leaving Joe’s bar, Lilith had wandered. Firstly, she’d wandered around the forest of Forgotten Hollow, then she’d wanderedContinue reading “Chapter 3.26 – Cabbage”

Chapter 3.24 – Grandma Was A Nutter

Hanging out in Wyatt’s room used to be akin to visiting a landfill on a hot, summer’s day. But now, with the crisp, fresh sheets, vacuumed flooring and lingering scent of chlorine, Broof could tolerate being in here for the same amount of time he could tolerate being around Wyatt. Time that, due to circumstance,Continue reading “Chapter 3.24 – Grandma Was A Nutter”

Chapter 3.19 – Happiest Man Alive

Note: teeny bit of blood. Broof had been waiting at the hidden area for thirty minutes, the secret meeting place where witches had been convening for centuries, mulling over life and how things had changed. A couple of months ago, he was butler to the most famous woman on the planet, living in luxurious quartersContinue reading “Chapter 3.19 – Happiest Man Alive”

Chapter 3.16 – An Education

Disclaimers: mildly nsfw, vulgar, cringeworthy Faith had strutted home, just before sunrise. The gig had been AMAZING but Seth had been a total dick last night, calling her a nightmare. However that wasn’t what hurt the most. Nor was it that he’d embarrassed her in front of her idols. The sorest point for Faith wasContinue reading “Chapter 3.16 – An Education”

Chapter 3.15 – Goblins

The break room at the Woodland Borough Police Department’s station was every bit as uninspiring as the rest of the building and yet Jessica’s imagination was running wild. The young officer – no, deputy – was sipping her decaffeinated green tea and staring through her sandwich on a break from doing nothing. In order toContinue reading “Chapter 3.15 – Goblins”

Chapter 3.10 – Hanky-Panky

On the bus ride home, Jessica had tried to think of a valid excuse for not honouring her invitation to the so-called GliTS HQ, aka, Pixie’s dad’s house. She understood, and was appreciative of, the offer of company and friendship – for someone so generally cheerful and chatty, Jessica couldn’t say that she had manyContinue reading “Chapter 3.10 – Hanky-Panky”

Chapter 3.09 – The Colour of Mourning

A bit longer than normal chapters, but this isn’t your normal chapter. I shift my weight on the bed. Oh, the soft blankets, they call to me, ask me to crawl under and recharge, but I can’t, not just yet. I am fixing April’s golden tresses – cut with garden shears, apparently! – while theContinue reading “Chapter 3.09 – The Colour of Mourning”

Chapter 3.08 – Guard Down

Broof had guided Melinda down a corridor to a small, but comfortable sitting room, full of flowers and family photos, and settled her on a plush sofa. She tried to take in her surroundings while simultaneously trying to piece together what had happened to bring her to this house. She must have passed out atContinue reading “Chapter 3.08 – Guard Down”

Chapter 3.07 – Something Stinks

Warning: Melinda’s retinas might not be the only ones burning! So bright! Oooookay. Well, that was the weirdest thing Melinda had ever had happen to her and there had sure been a lot of weird things happening to her lately. She had fought hard to get a barely-conscious April down the stairs and to theContinue reading “Chapter 3.07 – Something Stinks”
