Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Eleven – Stranded   Leave a comment

Sitting in the passenger’s seat of Marcus’ dark blue Jeep, I stared out the window and nervously gnawed at the edge of my lower lip, my heart hammering inside my chest. Beside me, in the driver’s seat, Marcus steered with one hand, his cast resting on his thigh. Luckily, the car was an automatic. I watched the pale pools of light cast by the headlights play over the smooth, dark road as Marcus left the residential part of town and headed out along the old highway, past the lumber mill and the old feed store, across the run-down, abandoned rail road tracks and past one lonely, dirty gas station that had been closed for as long as I could remember. The faded price on the pump read a dollar seventy a gallon. That was a while ago.

Moonlight Monday – 6/22/15   Leave a comment

Author’s Note: Happy Monday!

The first full week of summer vacation and I almost forgot what day it was. I did forget that Friday was Friday, and I forgot to post Alpha Spirit until Saturday. Oops. ^_^

This was one of the most difficult chapters I’ve written in a while. Sex scenes. Yeesh. I like writing erotic romance, but it’s just so hard to keep all the scenes from sounding alike. Hopefully, it didn’t turn out as bad as I fear it did. Let me know.

See you in two weeks, on July 6th!

Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Ten – Stalker   Leave a comment

“Cody, are you okay?” my mother asked as I helped her peel potatoes for dinner. “You’ve hardly said a thing since I picked you up today. Did something happen at school?”

“I’m fine,” I said quickly, setting the peeler on the counter and dumping my pile of peelings into the compost bin. I glanced over at her and she clearly wasn’t buying it. For a moment, I considered telling her about the voice, but my mother was one of those people who rolled their eyes any time someone mentioned bigfoot or UFOs. I decided on a less crazy explanation. “I was just thinking about something that happened today. You know that guy, the one I said I…liked? He spoke to me.”

“You mean Marcus,” she said, and I was surprised by the coldness in her voice. I thought she was okay with me being gay. Maybe not. “What did he want?”

Relief flooded through me. It wasn’t me she had a problem with, it was him.

“How do you know that name?” Marcus asked, his voice just a hoarse whisper. “Did…did Tobin say anything before he died? Did he say something about Silverpaws?” The anguish in his face, in his voice, was almost unbearable.

I shook my head. “I- I’m sorry; this was a mistake.” I turned to leave, but he grabbed me by the arm. I tensed, but he didn’t jerk me back or slam me against the lockers, he just held on and wouldn’t let me go.

“Cody, please,” he said, and my jaw dropped.

“You know my name,” I said, staring up at him. I felt like dancing. He knew my name!

“Well, yeah,” Marcus said. “It was in the newspaper after you– After the accident.”

“Oh. Right,” I said, hit with a cold, hard slap of reality. I was just the guy who had killed his friend; that was all I’d ever be to him.

Author’s Note: Happy Monday!

The last week of school, and it’s going to be a scorcher! It was almost 90 yesterday, and is supposed to hit 90 today, which really sucks because our school has no AC or cooling system whatsoever, and the classrooms that face south (which is most of them) just bake all day long. At least there are only 4 days left. I think we can make it. 🙂

Moonlight is going well, as far as I can tell. Of course, the final judgment will be yours, lol. Be sure to let me know what you think. ^_^ I’ll see you in two weeks, on June 22!

Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Seven – Voices   Leave a comment

“Is this a joke?” I asked finally. “Am I being punk’d? Where are the cameras?” I glanced around, but no one jumped out of the bushes to yell ‘Gotcha!’. “Please, tell me that you’re joking.”

I’m sorry, but it’s no joke, the voice said.

“Then you’re insane. Or I am. There are no such things as werewolves.”

Then what am I? the voice demanded. If you can find another explanation, go right ahead.

“You…” I said, trailing off as I searched for a way to finish that sentence. “You are a delusion, a figment of my imagination brought on by stress.”

If I’m part of your imagination, then how can I know things that you couldn’t possibly know?
