A bit of this, some of that, Q-Topolis will take you to different places. From the real to the fantastical, yesterday, today, tomorrow or to a time and place unknown. Hopefully, the characters will draw you into their lives and their adventures will entertain. Welcome and enjoy.
Outted at thirteen, Orin left home after high school hoping to escape the hell his life had become. When a tornado destroys his childhood home and kills his parents, Orin finds himself in an entirely new nightmare. He returns home and confronts his past in the person of his one-time best friend, Thomas. Thomas not only rejected him when Orin came out, he led the group that tormented Orin into leaving. Struggling with his grief, Orin also labors to fulfill the pledge he made to his parents before their death. In the process, Orin learns that sometimes when you go away to find yourself, you leave the answers you're looking for behind.
The Dark God Neldin has renewed his war with his siblings. The Six have chosen Farrell, last grand master wizard in the Seven Kingdoms to lead the fight against Neldin and his black wizard, Meglar. Joined by others who oppose Neldin, Farrell must still over come his self doubt if he wants to survive.
Companions to Purpose- most of these are just a scene or at most two that chronologically predate the start of Purpose. Thanks to Dark for the concept - Waylon Crossing Chronicles was the inspiration for this idea. Enjoy.

This short story was posted under the old eFiction and never transferred over. There it was titled 'Merchant's Gold', but I never really liked the title. So with a few tweaks, I am reposting it now. It was/is the very basic idea for a much long story I hope to one day post.
