Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Twenty – Best Laid Plans   Leave a comment

We pulled up in front of my house and Marcus shut off the engine.

“Thanks for the ride,” I said as I unbuckled and opened the door. To my surprise, Marcus also climbed from the vehicle.

“I won’t say no to the soda now,” he said, walking around the front of the jeep.

I glanced at the house, then back at him. “Oh. Um, well…my mother isn’t home…”

“I figured as much, or you wouldn’t be walking.” He started up the walk, but stopped, his attention drawn to the car parked in our driveway. “Whose car is that?” he asked, but I could tell from the strangeness in his voice that he had a pretty good idea.

“It’s mine,” I said, slowly walking toward the house.

“Is it–”

“Yeah. I’m going to trade it in, but…my dad’s better at negotiating deals, but he’s driving long-haul. He was supposed to be back last week, but he got hired to haul to Tennessee, and well, we need the money…and I’m rambling like an idiot. You still want that soda?”

Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Nineteen – Just Friends   Leave a comment

Marcus caught up to me at the entrance to the locker bay and grabbed my arm, spinning me around.

“I’m sorry,” he said before I could rip into him again. “I didn’t mean to hurt you, I was just trying to be funny. I know you’re not one of those unrealistic stereotypes, you’re just a normal guy who happens to like other guys. It was just a joke, and I’ll never make another gay joke again, I promise.”

Damn it, why did he have to be so genuine and understanding. It would have been so much easier to stay mad at him.

Sorry, Guys, No Moonlight Monday This Week   Leave a comment

I didn’t realize until I got a comment this afternoon that I missed posting the next chapter of Moonlight on Monday. Sorry, everybody. I lost track of time and thought I had another week. It’s been kind of crazy around here. I had a couple of school meetings and trainings to go to, a house-sitting job, our 17-year old Pomeranian passed away, we got a new pet dumbo rat, and my mother broke the little toe on her left foot, so I’ve been a little distracted. I’ve hardly had a chance to write these last two weeks, but I’ll try to finish the next chapter and have it up next Monday.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Free Fiction Friday – Alpha Spirit: Chapter Eighteen – Contamination   Leave a comment

After spending nearly an hour answering my mother’s questions as honestly as I could – leaving out the bit about the werewolves, of course – I was utterly exhausted. I expected to drop off to sleep like a rock tossed off a pier. Instead, I lay awake, thinking about Darkness and how he would have killed me, and Marcus and how he had saved my life. Was this what being a werewolf was like?

When I finally did sleep, I dreamed of being a wolf, running through the forest, chasing a buck that looked a lot like the one I’d seen in the road. I don’t remember if I ever caught it in my dream; my alarm went off and startled me awake, most of the details of the dream vanishing as I sat up and threw the covers back. Bleary-eyed, I shuffled into the bathroom for a shower. Thank God it was Friday.

“I’m not him, you know,” I said.

“I know,” he said and looked away. “I just miss him.”

“And I’m sorry he’s gone, but he is gone. Just because I have something that used to be his, that doesn’t make me him. It’s like I’m wearing his old shoes, that’s all.”

Thanks for comparing me to a pair of dirty sneakers, the voice said dryly.

Author’s Note: Sorry for the extra short chapter, it’s been a rough and busy two weeks. Fingers crossed that the next one will be longer.

See you in two weeks, on August 17th!
