Interlude 3: Reborn from the Ashes

Luella evaluated the tent setup. Not bad. A little refuge by the river, before she inevitably had to return to Sylvan Glade. She loved Dandelion, she really did. But spending all of her time in Sylvan Glade with a child was suffocating. Especially now, when he was old enough to start asking uncomfortable questions. Painful... Continue Reading →

Interlude 2: Where All Magic Was Born

When Luella opened her eyes, the world around her was dark. The sky looked nothing like it did in Syeldell at night, though. Was it even night-time? She couldn’t tell. Dandelion had stopped crying, but kept clinging on to her. Luella knew they couldn’t stay still. They had to find Simeon Silversweater. Whoever he was.... Continue Reading →

Interlude 1: Key to My Heart

Luella was bored. According to her father, she was now old enough to be present for some of the audiences people had with the king. She was excited when he first told her… until she discovered that most of the court business was dreadfully dull. There was that one time one of the elves in... Continue Reading →

Chapter 73: Human Nature

Cedmé was special, even among elves. She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen, but more importantly, beauty filled her heart. No wonder she stole mine. She was an adventurer, often leaving Syeldell in the pursuit of discoveries. And I always eagerly awaited her return. Luckily for me, she felt the same way.... Continue Reading →

Chapter 72: Super Powers

The campus was practically empty. Once they were outside, Dandelion took his hood off, giving Hawthorne a full view of his handsome face illuminated by the full moon. She could still feel the effects of the booze, even more so now, thanks to the glorious byproduct of second-hand drinking directly from someone else’s bloodstream. But... Continue Reading →

Chapter 71: Good Sign

Disclaimer: Hawthorne's in this one, so language, again. Maybe I should just say 'Hawthorne' in the disclaimers... Dandelion looked around the pink-tinted room. It had been a long time since he last visited Magic HQ, this part especially. But Hawthorne was right. He deserved answers. Not that he was sure he was going to get... Continue Reading →

Chapter 70: Overdue

The dinner was every bit as awkward as Hawthorne had expected – Morgyn being their usual chirpy self, her mother throwing death glares at them, and her father trying to keep the peace while staying out of it… in other words, a disaster. She wasn’t sure why her mother insisted on hosting these Winterfest dinners.... Continue Reading →

Chapter 69: Secret

The two girls hurried inside the pub, escaping the snow outside. “Brrr,” Chloe shivered, looked around the pub. “None of the others are here yet. Are we early? That’s so embarrassing...” “Not as embarrassing as falling on our asses in the blizzard would be,” Hawthorne shrugged. “Let’s get some drinks.” “I do look forward to... Continue Reading →

Chapter 68: Genius

Disclaimer: Language. The university campus looked grander than Micah expected. Old. He’d never gone to university himself. When he was Hawthorne’s age, his plans merely involved painting, and standing on his own two feet as quickly as possible. His first place when he moved out was definitely nothing like this. It had been a whole... Continue Reading →

Chapter 67: Silence

Cordelia I thought getting rid of the grandfather clock would help. I didn’t notice its sound from the start; at first, I had my head filled with all kinds of petty hopes and dreams to pay attention, and then later on, the house was never quiet enough to hear it. It was only once Morgyn... Continue Reading →
