THE PORTAL

Alfie couldn’t believe they made the portal into their world so easy to spot. He’d worked his entire life to hide their existence and now this? He shook his head. This needed to be changed and changed immediately. The Elder Council mustn’t know about this. That was about to change. He would go before them

THE THREE

This story is prompted by Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo Thursday photo prompt:  #writephoto. Emme stared at the three figures on the plain as Jadis stood beside her, chanting. Somehow, she knew she had to be here. But she had so many questions. Foremost, was she truly a witch. What made her the chosen one? Why

THE PROTECTOR

Ryllae flitted to Old Godrrick and Koilap and landed betwixt the two. She pulled out a small pouch and reached inside sprinkling faerie dust and chanting “Amicis nostris bene ac defendat (be well our friends and protect us).” The trees bowed and their roots pulsed. Ryllae leaned in and placed her head against Godrrick and

ANGLEWOOD

Built by his ancestors centuries ago, Anglewood had been passed down to the eldest son each generation. Today it became his. He loathed the thought of it. Anglewood, his ancestor’s house, sucked the life from all who tended to it. Levi walked up to the front door and stared. It needed a complete makeover. But

The smell of the grass, the flowers, the rain fresh countryside invigorated him and prepared him for his day. Today, he chose not to follow his usual path, but rather to explore the field on the far

AMBERCREST CAVE

Petra walked the shore of Allanon many times but stopped and turned around before passing Ambercrest Cave. The legend surrounding the cave had everyone afraid. She had to know if the legend was true but didn’t want to go alone. She convinced Aydran to explore the cave with her. “Are you ready?” She asked. “I

SKIP DAY

“Esmeralda Charlotte Gossling.” her mother yelled. Emme sprang up from her bed breathing hard and fast. She slumped back and whispered, it was only a dream. After completing her morning routine, she ran down the steps and grabbed a granola bar. “See you later.” She grabbed her backpack and started out the door. “Esmeralda don’t

EMBRACE YOUR DESTINY

Emme looked around. The room was filled with black robed figures whose faces were hidden behind conical hats. One of them shut the door and the rest stood behind a woman in a blood red robe. Emme sucked in a deep breath. Her heart pounded and her entire body tingled. This can’t be happening. “Esmaralda

DESTINY

“Do you see that? Isn’t it beautiful the way the moon shines though it?” Emme asked Ben. “Yeah, I see that dumb cow weather vane. Ain’t nothin’ special ‘bout it,” Ben replied. Emme couldn’t believe it. Were they looking at the same thing? Did she have the gift? Is that why she saw it and
