Hope: by Chris T. Kat:

I started when Hope jumped against my knees, barking. For him this was all a game, but for me? Taking him in yesterday had been the choice between living and giving up. I swallowed. Shane would’ve clocked me for ever having a thought in that direction. Then again, he remained dead, and I missed him every single minute of the day.

Hope dug his paws deep into my thighs, which elicited a pained grunt from me. “It’s okay, boy.”

I drew in a breath in an attempt to collect myself. Hope wagged his tail and looked up at me with his ears perked. Continue reading

An Eranthis in the Snow: by MC Houle:

William reached outside the sleeve of his winter coat and watched as a unique flake fell upon his hand, a white star that melted as soon as it landed, and left the smallest water dot as a proof it ever existed. William’s lashes stuck together as he closed his eyes in an attempt to stop the tears from drowning him in his sorrow. He tightened the top of his coat around the scarf when the sob, starting in his stomach, caught in his throat before escaping his lips as laughter. Suddenly, he couldn’t stop that macabre sound from breaking the silence of the evening.  Continue reading

they didn’t know anything beyond that.

Tom felt like it had been an eternity since he’d gotten word that Travis had been
taken to the hospital.  Now he was pacing

Sunrise; by Victoria Adams:

Sian rubbed her forehead. “What do you mean, you lost J’dol?”

“We were at the park and I went to get some ice cream.” Kiry glanced at Sian, Purple and Aunt Mixy. “I thought he’d like a treat. I’m guessing he’s never had ice cream. I’m standing in line, looking around and I glanced back at the bench he was supposed to be sitting on and poof no J’dol.” Continue reading

Sealed in Stone #19, byTali Spencer:

“Once you are inside the nom, we cannot protect you, not truly. We can only try.” Jayn sounded tired, and old. Lines of care creased the skin bracketing her lips.

Willem adjusted his work belt, glad to be wearing tools again. A sturdy chitin case at his feet held his larger tools. Though Jayn was certain he’d been included on the team for reasons other than to do stonework inside the nom, he still hoped for it. Humans had created works of wonder inside Pesht, most known only through drawings and rumor. Havar’s Folly. Vayna’s Chamber. The Throne of Kavra.  Continue reading
