Chapter 4.09 – Heart of Gold

Disclaimer: references this chapter and contains all the same horrible stuff – non-consent, imprisonment and violence – from the other side. “You know who I am?” “Yes, I know who you are, Faith,” Kitty laughed. “What amazes me, is that you know who I am.” “I know who you are, Kitty,” Faith managed through aContinue reading “Chapter 4.09 – Heart of Gold”

Chapter 4.08 – Vice

After casually strolling through the Windenburg countryside in a post-robbery daze, Broof and Lilith had stopped to pick up supplies at a petrol station on the route to Willow Creek. Lilith required very little to survive a week in the wilderness, so she went to freshen up while Broof bought whatever he thought he needed.Continue reading “Chapter 4.08 – Vice”

Chapter 4.06 – Night Camouflage

Broof had driven himself and Lilith to within half a mile of the Wangshaft manor, and left his car parked on a completely normal-looking residential street. They could have driven right up to the gates, or at least around the corner for a quick getaway, but Broof thought it best that the pair approach theContinue reading “Chapter 4.06 – Night Camouflage”

Chapter 4.04 – Puffy

Note: A little gruesome. When Faith had imagined Britechester, with its stuffy old buildings, fancy architecture and halls full of nerds, she hadn’t imagined that she’d ever go there, not with her terrible grades. Unless she got employed as a cleaner or as a stripper for a frat party, or something. And Blondie was neverContinue reading “Chapter 4.04 – Puffy”

Chapter 4.02 – Like Flies

In the Henford countryside, all was still, all was silent for miles around Moon’s tiny cottage. But inside was another story. “I definitely look OK?” Melinda asked again, fussing with the shirt she’d tied around her hips. “Do I look like I’ve made an effort? Too much effort?” “You look lovely, dear,” Moon said soothingly.Continue reading “Chapter 4.02 – Like Flies”

Chapter 3.52 – Botched Bloodline Pt. 1

Moon swirled her teapot in silence until she was satisfied that her tea was adequately steeped. She had been unable to sleep that night, for a few reasons. Not least because one of her cats hadn’t yet returned home after his evening bathroom trip. Restless, Moon had abandoned her attempts at sleep to go andContinue reading “Chapter 3.52 – Botched Bloodline Pt. 1”

Chapter 3.48 – Flickering Lights

While Jessica’s cohorts figured out how to safely dismount from their precarious people tower, Jessica had subtly checked the house. As well as ensuring that the coast was clear, she was looking for clues; any sign as to the reasoning behind Ralf’s fate, anything he’d left behind. Her search turned nothing up. Nothing at all.Continue reading “Chapter 3.48 – Flickering Lights”

Chapter 3.47 – Breaking

Note: features acres of pale skin with strategically-placed décor. Caleb had bedded countless women in his three hundred and seven years. He had, often unwittingly, seduced wealthy women, poor women, thin ones, fat ones, pretty ones, ugly ones, young and old in almost any situation one could think of. Yet, lying in Sage’s bed, besideContinue reading “Chapter 3.47 – Breaking”

Chapter 3.46 – Inside

Warning: nsfw (no nudity), violence, questionable consent and a good dose of clueless cringe. By the time Seth and his troublesome tutee had materialised back at their miniscule lodgings, her fight and panic had dissipated. He turned her face side-to-side, studying her for a hint of that delectable offering, but found none. Frustration rolled throughContinue reading “Chapter 3.46 – Inside”

Chapter 3.45 – Bedtime Story

Warning: violent, harrowing, horrific Everything about the tiny house was exactly as Faith remembered it, except for one detail. Oh my god, she willed to Seth, who had followed her a pace behind, scoping the darkness. What? Seth projected back. Suddenly on alert, she could sense him tense at her shoulder. He was making herContinue reading “Chapter 3.45 – Bedtime Story”
