Somewhere Over

Human structures buzzed. Cat flicked ears. Crept beneath un-alive bushes with strange smells. Made the journey to Secret Place. Too many humans at Dark now. Can't handle Day anymore. Cat ruffled fur, warm air reaching skin. "Right there!" A child. "Shut up. Get inside." Child's Human. Child's eyes met Cat's as Human shoved Child through... Continue Reading →

Pieces

Motes danced in the morning's first sweltering rays. Hektor savoured two plain, poached eggs, resolving to take some home one day. His mind's eye showed his home's rituals, worlds away, mrul-filled bowls steaming. He smelled its comforting decadence. Soon. Outside, planting seedlings, Hektor trained his mind toward his Earthen students, out too, exploring, growing. He... Continue Reading →

Supply Run

Slinking along the dark and barren hillside, pack of acquired supplies secured tight, I see movement. Have I been caught? I drop low, confident in my darkened outer-wear, and watch the quiet, sprawling city. A flash by the edge reveals an individual stumbling past the barrier, long, unshaven white hair gleaming in the night. I... Continue Reading →

Her carer's mind was lost in the depths of... Continue Reading →

The End

Screams from inside forced the woman - visitor, friend - through to the master bedroom. She froze before the scene. "No-" a child, face of horror, backed away from the bed, "I tried to stop...it wouldn't- let me..." On the bed, the child's mother gasped for breath, "knew...I shouldn't have-" she clutched her throat, blood... Continue Reading →

Adrift

A youngling cast eyes skyward upon birth. Energies entered its being, strengthened its mind, its heart. That youngling grew, phased, loved, laughed. Built together a house-family, welcomed partners and friends, life happy and full. Years on, now-grown, they lay ready. Every village eagerly awaiting the next youngling's birth on the morrow. Eyes closed now, their... Continue Reading →

Red

Dirt caked her soft dress. She’ll wash it later. For now, though self-assigned, she had to complete her mission before the sun set - she had to find it.Laughter reached her, drifting from the house at the bottom of the yard; soon it’d turn to cries.She had to hurry.She sped over the ground, eyes darting.At...

The Gift

Hiding beneath the roots of a grand gum, she heard the tiny sobs.Her charge had been playing outdoors again. Did she hurt herself?The fairy, wings tucked away, peered through grass above. She could see the side of the little girl, hands cupped, tears dripping onto dusty clothes.Something hung out of her fingers.Should she let her... Continue Reading →
