Garret Farm: Part 32 by J Ray Lamb

A few days had passed and nothing on the farm had changed. The tractor that Claire was using had been serviced and repaired. The damage wasn’t as bad as first expected so it was a relatively simple repair.

Sandy and Trent returned two days later after disappearing to the city. Trent had texted Jason that they would be gone and Murphy confirmed that he’d gotten it. Trent had the crops well managed and Sandy wasn’t fully on the job yet. It was affected his internship, but as Murphy thought of it, he was getting his IN-tern-ship from Trent…

Ancalagon: Chapter Ninety-one by Cia Nordwell
 

Ases sent his mech to the far side of the room where it extended its legs and looked down on the room. We’d been announced, and the applause had sounded sincere enough. The knots of people were slow to approach our trio, however, even after the mech moved away.  

“The clothing is certainly interesting.” Many people wore outfits that mirrored the patterns on their skin, spots or stripes, but in many different hues. Others wore draped robes held over a single shoulder or wraps in plain colors but accessorized with gaudy jewels. “I’m glad I packed several formal outfits.” He

Garret Farm: Part 31 by J Ray Lamb

Jaosn knew his time at the farm was rapidly coming to an end. He stood quietly as his mind replayed his comments earlier in the day about how Murphy poaid him for doing nothing and also what Murphy had just said.

Claire sat quietly and tried to hide the smile that threatened to spread across her face. She and most of the female workers around the farm had been wanting Jason gone since the time that he had been brought on to the farm. Even several of the gay guys had had their run-ins with him and wanted him gone

Ancalagon: Chapter Eighty-nine by Cia Nordwell
 

“The Galactic Council wants peace between the many unique species all over the universe.  I have come with Garjah and Essell to start the introductions.” Ases stepped forward and bowed. “My name is Ases. I hope that you will give me time to learn your culture and forgive any mistakes in my manners, but know I have nothing but the best of intentions as we create a bridge to bring your worlds alongside the Galactic society.”  

“This is not our way.” That question was not staged. A contingent of new arrivals pushed their way through the crowd, but they were

Rose and Thorne 6 #21 (4.7) by Julie Lynn Hayes

The staff and guests of the Hamilton Arms milled about outside of the hotel, congregating in groups as they speculated as to what was going on inside. A light drizzle had begun to fall, which only added to everyone’s discomfort at being unceremoniously rousted in the middle of the night. Emergency vehicles were already onsite, their flashing lights adding an eerie glow to the scene.

As late as it was, most businesses had closed for the night. Passing traffic was sparse. Even so, vehicles slowed to gawk before moving on.

“Think we could get an umbrella?” I muttered to Ethan.

The Garret Farm: Part 28 by J Ray Lamb

Trent kept driving towards Flat River but was just meandering towards it. He didn’t have a specific destination in mind. His mind was replaying the earlier conversation with Sandy over and over.

How did I get so lucky? Trent thought to himself as he kept driving, Don’t count your chickens before they hatch!

As much as Trent was enjoying the throb of Sandy’s crotch in his hand, he felt that he needed to move it. Sandy had put his hand there, but Trent wasn’t comfortable with it after a few minutes. He was smitten with Sandy, the sex this morning…

Ancalagon: Chapter Eighty-six by Cia Nordwell
 

I placed my hands over his, wanting to touch. I laced our fingers together and leaned my hand into our connected palms. “We need to find some allies who can prevent that from happening, because I don’t think I’d like jail.”  

He huffed. “As if I’d let Seedrah put you in a cell.”  

“Instead of sneaking us back on the planet, we need the rebels to help us make as big an entrance as possible. Do you think they can do that?”  

“Maybe.”  

“And Seedrah… is he loyal to you or to the Kardoval?”  

Garjah hesitated. “He would not do

Rose and Thorne 6 #18 (4.4) by Julie Lynn Hayes

All good things must come to an end—or at least I’ve found that to be the case in my experience with life so far—and so it was with our evening with Benny. Luckily we didn’t have to get up too early the next day, as our flight to Atlanta didn’t leave until sometime late morning. But when Benny began to yawn, despite his best efforts to hide it, we realized we should probably call it a night. Okay, maybe I yawned a bit myself, although I wasn’t about to admit to being tired. I didn’t have to, though. Ethan knew me too well to even listen to my protestations that I was wide awake and fine. He also vetoed my suggestion of more coffee with a chuckle and a shake of his pretty head. I knew better than to argue with that.

After a quick check of Benny’s room, for safety’s sake, we bid him good night.

“Good night guys,” he said with a pronounced wink. “Oh, and just so you know,

Rose and Thorne 6 #17 (4.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Benny’s suite contained two bedrooms, which was pretty standard for the Hamilton Arms, as we’d learned during our previous sojourn at the hotel. I was just glad we weren’t staying in the same suites as before—me with Troy and Ethan with she-who-shall-not-be-named. In fact, I was grateful we weren’t even on the same floor as that would have brought up rather unwelcome memories as well.

We ordered dinner from room service. I had to admit the steaks there were pretty good. Plus food seemed to just taste better on the government dime. Maybe that’s

Ancalagon: Chapter Eighty-three by Cia Nordwell
 

I was sure of Ases though. As soon as we’d gotten away from the planet and his family’s suffocation, he’d returned to the man I’d known. He’d sent so many questions via the comm.  Everything about him screamed someone who was ready to seize the joy of his new life with both hands.  

And by the way Bouncer just rubbed along his side, he approved too. Traitorous little shit. Eses hadn’t even fed him. Was it the animal thing? Like calling to like?  

I cocked my head. “Come on. I’ll take you for a short walk and a meal.” Pointing
