Double Trouble: Chapter 16 by Jon Keys

Josh stared out the window to the rapidly dimming scene outside his window. The ice was already building on the fledgling trees he and Trent planted when they’d moved into the house several years ago. They’d be old men before the trees were big enough to enjoy the shade from them, but right now Josh wasn’t sure there would be more left of their precious trees than kindling.
 
Josh jumped when one of the giant cottonwood trees along the county road lost another branch to the weight. The sound just tightened the knots that already populated Josh’s stomach. Trent was still out in this shit, with both kids.

Boys of Belsmeade: Chapter 16 Kazy Reed

Aramis took my hand and led me through the French doors on the far side of the sitting room. The snow crunched under my boots, but I wasn’t cold. Evidently, air temperature wasn’t going to affect me as much now I was a vampire. Good. I fucking hate the cold. As we walked to the pool house, I leaned against my mate’s shoulder.

“Are you happy?” he asked me.

“Yes,” I replied quietly.

“But?”

I sighed. “I don’t know. This is all so weird. My life has changed in so many ways and… I mean, I barely know you, and now I’m bound to you forever—literally, forever.”

Aesthetics of Invention: Part 11 by Ravon Silvius

Even though the wound was healed, his cheek still itched. Kenneth ran his thumb over it, thinking but not saying the words to the aether that would alleviate discomfort. Healing was a basic skill, but in the confusion of being struck he wasn’t sure he had done it correctly. It might still bruise.

 “Are you alright?” Thorn asked. The halls they walked through were dim, the electric lights giving off a droning hum that Kenneth was beginning to think only he could hear. The quiet, though, was appreciated after the throng of people at the duel. The one he had ruined with his ignorance.

 “I’m fine,” he said with a sigh. “Only my pride still hurts.”

Hope: Chapter 44 by Chris T. Kat

I woke to Shane’s lips ghosting along my neck, while his erection nestled in my crease. My own erection sprang to life, and I moaned when Silvion shifted in the bed, his large cock pushing in my belly.

Are you finally awake?” Silvion murmured.

Told you we should’ve been more forceful,” Shane said before I had a chance to open my mouth. He nipped at the junction of throat and shoulder and I gasped, allowing my head to fall back and give him better access.

The Hollow: Soul Seekers by JC Wallace

Around eleven-forty five, Levi pulled into the parking lot located a short distance from Champlain Hall where Dr. Winston’s office was located. He was a little sweatier and a little shakier but he’d made it. Being back on the campus stirred feelings he hadn’t expected, least of them longing—longing to return to a semi-normal life, to live without the fear, to be a student who only cared about getting classes out of the way to have fun and freedom. Levi gripped the door handle firmly and entered Champlain Hall as if he belonged there, like any student, not a drop out.

Buried Treasure 9 By Carol Pedroso

 I am embarrassed to say I panicked, big time.
 I was on my own with the best friend I had loved for years and he was waiting for me to join him in bed!!
Suddenly everything form the last few days started hitting me at once.
I had dug my best friend up from under a landslide.
That best friend had then come to stay with me and needed full on care at first.
 I had failed to find Crystal in time to save her.
 I was now tasked with finding and capturing – if not killing – her father.
  I had…

No, I haven’t lost my mind. This is what should have been posted on Wednesday, and I apologize for the lateness of this post – both to my writers and to our readers – but I was unable to post, as my computer died Monday and I didn’t get back online until after Wednesday had passed. But better late than never, right? Enjoy!

 Aesthetics of Invention: Part 7 by Ravon Silvius
Kenneth ached to return the favor Thorn had given him in the forest outside the inventor’s college. He could barely focus as he walked past the familiar talentless man who watched the entrance at night, thought of nothing but Thorn as he stabled Jade and took his bags, and wasn’t bothered at all by the dusty scent of the dingy hallways as they walked down to Thorn’s room.

“Home sweet home for the next week,” Thorn said, swinging his door open. The hinges creaked, and Thorn winced. “I’ll have to oil that.”

Love Across Time: Chapter 23 by Jim Dunaway

“So what’s up?” Ryan asked, stepping out of the travellator.

“We think we figured out why the paradox alarm went off,” Liam began.

“It has to do with either Ethan or his brother or both. It’s highly likely that either or both of them weren’t supposed to come here, at least at this point in time.”

“But they did. I had to explain everything to them to convince them that they’re not going crazy. The problem is now that they’ve been here, there’s no way I can think of to undo it. since they’ve been here and know about the travellators, what do we do?

Buried Treasure: Part 6 By Carol Pedroso

The helicopter shook as it took off. Craig was strapped to a bed in the back and I was sitting beside him belted to my chair. He grabbed my hand and clung on as we reached the height we needed and set off towards Chapmistres View.

“Remind me again why he would head for a community that is made up of witches and vampires. Especially when two of those vampires are the oldest known two on this island.” Craig asked me as we watched the scenery whizz by.

“Well the first point would be that Chapmistres is the nearest community

Rattletrap #9 by Tali Spencer

Ussim glared at the surveillance images. The humans were keeping his trophy! Instead of sending Jedd back to him with a message of acceptance, they were sending another of their number. A fighter, if the male’s behavior was consistent with his role. The creature had laid hold of Jedd and threatened him—almost prompting Ussim to burst in and intervene—but the exchange had been too fascinating.

Weapons.

At the mention of weapons, too many humans had looked one to the other. And Jedd had thrown up his hands to indicate he had none.
