Of Mortals: Chapter Thirty

“Kovarlin! It’s not too late. We can turn this all around. I can feel it, the Goredrinker, stirring in me, waiting to come out and do what he may to change our fates. Help me turn the tides before it is too late,” Mishonrayel hissed up at the cougar who looked dissatisfied to know life […]

Of Mortals: Chapter Twenty-Nine

Erkinan pulsed and quaked in Sirian’s veins until the throb of power was all that seemed to permeate the scene. The drums of war, the anxious heart prepared to kill and sure to die raging with all the intensity it could muster. Her eyes trained on her foes like a hawk on a prairie shren, […]

Of Mortals: Chapter Twenty-Eight

The task had perhaps been hopeless from the beginning and the prospects presented to her no better even with the alleged help from an inside party, yet still, Sirian was reluctant to agree to Kovarlin’s terms. He had his points; Shi’Karil would be dead in moments weather or not Sirian showed her muzzle, there was […]

Of Mortals: Chapter Twenty-Seven

The armored bird was slow in going, initially, as though it’s limbs, like that of any living creature, had to reawaken after untold time atrophying in the dark. Yet, in time it was able to rise and articulate the clawed hands sheltered beneath its dusted-over wings. Before long, the automated avian was pacing back and […]

Hunger: Finale

By the time Raul was done all that remained were blood-slicked yellow jumpsuits that had become receptacles for dissembled skeletons. Even as his stomach bulged, Raul felt a growling groping his innards with intense violent motions. It took him a few moments after swallowing up the last of the hazmat men before he was looking […]

Hunger: Chapter Six

As Raul slowly made his way down the steps, each wrung ringing the metallic sound of his movements, he could see fear develop in the creature. Without eyes or seemingly any other facial details all that could alert any to its terror was its squawking. The others didn’t seem to interested in their comrades pleas […]

Hunger: Chapter Five

As the shrieking cry rattled through the area, Raul felt his courage shrivel up and fall away. The space lost its dreamy qualities. Raul no longer felt a haziness pressing on his mind and for a second he had to wonder if this was real. As the six, inhumanly tall and slender birds crept nearer, […]

Hunger: Chapter Four

Finding his footing again, and once more centering his focus on his own perspective, Raul pushed through the fog concealing the final segment of the lab. Against the grate leading into the third and final wet lab were two more of the flat fleshy creatures. They didn’t seem to notice Raul as he closed the […]

Hunger: Chapter Three

Hours passed as Raul ripped and tore away chunks of meat heavily overgrown with the fungi attached to the pig’s spine. As he pulled away mouthful after mouthful, Raul found that the growth was not forming on the skin but pushing through the flesh from the spine. He didn’t bother much with it, Raul didn’t […]

Hunger: Chapter Two

Sluggishly, Raul rolled open his eyes, his body was numb, but he still had his body. With a cautious breath, Raul touched the spot on his chest again, yet his fingers were still too deadened to feel properly. He knew something was over chest but the exact quality of it was uncertain. Again, this time […]
