Parched

Depleted, Nixie collapsed in the middle of the road while taking an evening stroll.

A Snippet & Thought

“There’s nothing here…But off in the distance, maybe across the stream, I can hear something. Movement. Perhaps some sort of small animal.” She scrunched her eyes shut tighter, furrowing her brows in concentration, “Yes, I think it’s a small animal of some sort. Roaming. Slowly. Grazing. That’s weird; I shouldn’t be able to hear anyContinue reading “A Snippet & Thought”

Soul Reaper

Snatched: Breaking Through the Surface

The sedatives coursing through Jane’s veins ran thin as she began to crawl toward the surface. Little by little she banged her head against the glaciers holding her deep under.

The Power of Unity

Snatched (a morsel)

From his lazy-boy, Jack intently watched the camera’s monitor and sipped scotch on the rocks as he chain-smoked one cigarette after another. His lady had started to come to and was struggling to reach the surface. Watching her every motion stirred the beast lurking inside and he grew hard with anticipation of hearing her criesContinue reading “Snatched (a morsel)”

Snatched (snippet)

The sounds of incoherent grunts and moans coming from the trussed and gagged woman at the back of the van were a welcomed sound in Jack’s ears.

Dustin’s Weapons

Secured in a leather shoulder holster on the right is a Glock model 20, holding 13 rounds of ten mm, in a magnum cartridge that is more suitable for hunting than protection.  A Glock model 29 can be found tucked in either the small of his back or in the front at the waist forContinue reading “Dustin’s Weapons”

“Let’s take a moonlight-stroll in the forest, while I share an ancient tale.”

  When Samantha saw the golden flecks shimmer to life in his eyes, her grin grew wider. To measure his reaction she boldly bit harder on her trapped bottom lip before releasing it to guide her tongue back and forth across the sensitive, swelling flesh.  A giggle escaped her, breaking the spell and brought DustinContinue reading ““Let’s take a moonlight-stroll in the forest, while I share an ancient tale.””

Revelations Begin (continued with more)

Out on the vast wooden deck that wrapped around the entire cabin, they sat side by side on oversized wooden chaise lounge chairs, in silence, while overlooking the forest edge. Dustin was staring off in deep thought as he contemplated how best to broach the sensitive subject. “What’s the matter?” Samantha asked casting a sidewaysContinue reading “Revelations Begin (continued with more)”

Tonight

Dustin pushed in close, cornering Samantha up against the wall as he relished in their combined warmth and how her hormones spiked in response to his wolf.  His frequent nearness was forcing her pup out of dormancy and it would soon reach the surface. With the full moon approaching, at the end of the week,Continue reading “Tonight”

The Cave (Picture it & write)

Freezing, numb, and trembling, in the deep-dark recess of the cave, she watched as the night dissolved to reveal first rays of the morning light.

She shuffled her nearly immobile and weakened limbs forward, easing out ofContinue reading “The Cave (Picture it & write)”
