  1. Sometimes you're the windshield, and other times the bug. Me, I seem to be the shmuck who has to clean the bug off the windshield. Lol. Best saying I've seen on a tee shirt today.

    Chapter 9

    Well, Adi I see you put yourself in danger of being lynched in order to force you to release the next chapter early. Bad wolf. *looks for his rolled up newspaper.* Anyway, we knew this would be bloody. I might be putting myself in trouble, but I'm glad to see D is the one taken this time. I was beginning to feel like Nico was some helpless female to be beaten and taken every time something happened. Instead we are finally going to see if he is truly the king's mate as he steps up and uses his gifts freely to help his people and his mate. I hope he kicks ass and skips taking names.

    Chapter 34

    Nephy, one of the things I love most about your worlds, are the people who inhabit them are so richly full of life. Regardless if they are a bitch like Momma, unique like Aria, or special like Jay you allow them to fully come to life. Being "damaged" or "different" only makes them more precious and a reason to love them. This chapter was a chance to let the characters breathe and shine a light on them. Jay is hurting but he is worried about Aria and Amara so he puts them first. We learn of Cerrian's life and outlook. She is the wild child with a huge heart. Aria finds Drew calling him a man opens up a new image, allows him to feel confident, and explore if only a bit. Even Amara, who hates to show he is just human, allows Drew to help him and allows his barrier to fall if only for a moment. Drew is even allowed moments to be introspective. With all the tenderness shown here, makes me worry about them visiting their grandmother. Guess who's coming to dinner? Drew, Amara, Aria, Jay, and Cerrian are, just hope they dont eat crow or are fed arsenic. 'Til next time.

    Chapter 8

    “So what are you going to do?” Neil sat on my bed looking at the stuff I’d managed to carry down to my room. “Shouldn’t I be asking you that? Weren’t you supposed to decide which job you were taking.” I stood staring at my brother. “Stop evading the question. Answer mine, and then I’ll answer yours.” Neil crossed his arms and stared at me. I flopped onto the floor and hugged the huge bear Harry had given me. “Well?” “We talked. Harry is an idiot. Mrs. O’Conner had to help us clean up. There was so much stuff between the flowers, the balloons, and the stuffed animals. There are going to be pictures all over Facebook and Instagram. I gave away all the balloons. I mean what the hell would I do with them, Neil?” I was rambling and I knew it. When I finally stopped, Neil walked over and sat beside me. “Okay, so you should be done stalling. Are you going to keep dating? If you are, you know that is okay, as long as you both were honest and set up some ground rules so you don’t hurt each other.” I pulled the bear closer. I was glad Neil was letting me work through this. “We did talk. Harry and I are going to take a week away from each other. I told him that I am not the type to go from one person to the next. If he wants to date me, he has to ready to be with just me. If he ever does anything like this again, I warned him I’d rip off his balls.” Neil smiled and pulled me into a hug while I cried. It took a bit but eventually, I pulled myself together. “Sorry,” I muttered as I wiped my nose. “Sorry for what? Crying?” Neil tilted his head and smiled. “I think you forgot how often I cry. Thank god for mom and dad. Without them and you, I really don’t know how I would have survived with Maryann.” “Well, the munchkin always seems to know what she wants.” “Yes. Speaking of Giggles, I’ve made a few decisions. I guess I should start by telling you I talked with Mr. Weaton today. He and Lisa are separating. He said he couldn’t see her affecting another generation, and he wanted to see his grand-daughter grow up healthy and happy. It was a hard thing to listen to.” I sat staring at my brother. “He convinced me that I needn’t worry about anything but raising Maryann and being happy, Ralph.” “So, um, does that mean you are taking the job here?” Neil hugged me close. “Yup. I’ll be working a half hour from here. Maryann will be able to grow up where her father did.” “You mean her fathers. You and Frank grew up here. You’ll take her to visit with the Stevens. She will get to know her grandparents and me.” “Hey, you guys down there?” Dad called. “Yeah,” Neil called up. “Well, come up. I bought pizza for dinner and Mona is giving Maryann a bath.” We went up and sat at the table. “So, before your mother comes in, do I have to kill Harry?” Dad looked at me and smiled. “No. He’s okay. We, uhh, talked. I guess.” I could feel myself blushing. “Good.” My dad patted my shoulder then sat down and stared at Neil for a moment. ”So now that Ralph is taken care of, what are your plans, Neil?” Before Neil could say a word, Mom came in cradling Maryann in her arms. “She isn’t so little anymore.” “Nonsense, she will always be my little girl,” Neil commented as he took Maryann into his arms. “Our little girl,” said both of my parents in unison. “You know, you are young enough to have another kid,” Neil said as he rocked the baby. “I can even help change diapers.” I watched as the color drained from dad’s face. “No. Your father and I can wait ‘til you get married and give us grandchildren.” “Well, I’m not dating and I’m not sure if Harry can carry a baby for Ralph, so you’ll have to wait a while.” Mom paled as she stared at Neil and me, but Dad just laughed. “Anyway, I’m going to take the job with Morrison and Company. Looks like you’re stuck with me and Giggles here until I start getting regular paychecks.” Maryann grabbed Neil’s finger and began to giggle. “You know that Mona and I want you to stay here.” Dad smiled as Neil kissed the baby’s head. “Yes.” Mom popped open the pizza box and began sliding slices onto plates and passing them out. “I’d rather keep the family all under one roof as long as I can.” “I plan on taking a trip right after my birthday next month.” Neil maneuvered the baby and tried to eat as she tugged on his arm. “Oh? Do you need us to babysit?” Dad paused, a slice of pizza halfway to his mouth. “Nope. Taking Giggles here to see her grandparents. Mrs. Steven wants me to have a scrapbook she has about her daughter. She says her and Andrew aren’t as young as the rest of the grandparents, so she wants to get some stuff together for her grand-daughter that will let her know about that part of her family. I really didn’t get a chance to know Maryann well. I mean, I know she could cook up a storm, was a great computer programmer, and she loved Frank. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to know her as well as I’d have liked. At least this way, I’ll learn about her from her parents and be able to answer any questions when the munchkin grows up.” Mom was all teary. “I think that’s beautiful.” “I guess if we are sharing things, well, I better too.” I saw dad shoot me a wink as I looked at mom. “Oh, really? What do you need to tell us?” Mom sat very still and stared at me. “Um, well, Harry and I talked. We are going to try again. I told him….” “No! I forbid it. He was,” my mother was building up a head of steam. “Mona! Enough. If he is old enough to date, he is old enough to handle the fallout.” Mom stared and then just sat there. Maryann began to fuss due to the raised voices. “I didn’t mean to snap at you. The whole family has been through a lot in the last few months. I do have some news, which is mostly good.” Dad grabbed mom’s hand before he continued. “I was offered a new position this week that comes with a big raise. I also got some mixed news from my brother. There was a fire in the clothing store next to Stevie’s restaurant. It spread and the restaurant was destroyed. Until the insurance companies are finished and the place is rebuilt, he is out of a job.” We all sat sort of stunned. None of us could figure out why Dad was smiling. “The good news is Chris and Stevie figured this was as good a time as any, so they moved up their wedding. The two of them are coming with two of their close friends to get married here.” “Really?” I stared at dad in surprise. “Yeah. Seems they plan to get married and stay here with us for a few days. They’ve both said they don’t want us to become the sort who only see each other for weddings, funerals, and the occasional graduation.” Dad picked up his pizza and began to munch. “Good. Maybe I can get Stevie to teach me his waffle recipe.” Mom reached out and snagged another slice of pizza. I just sat there smiling at family and feeling extremely lucky. With my uncle getting married and my brother staying here my life was getting better. Hell, if Harry and work things out, in a few years we might get married too.

    Jamie is Found - Prompt 733

    The cat sat grooming itself as the puddle of blood slowly spread behind it on the old oak floor. Daniel watched as his familiar continued to ignore the dying creature sprawled out behind it and chose to clean her paws instead. The eight-foot-tall behemoth had been trying to shatter the protection circle he was carefully hiding in. Instead, Elly had transformed into a giant panther, slaughtering the ogre before pausing to clean up. “Fuck!” He collapsed in terror on the floor. “Where are you, Jamie?” The cat finished cleaning her claws and jumped into the circle, rubbing her feline body against Daniel until he calmed down. “Elly, how does this shit keep happening to me?” He gathered the silky black cat onto his shoulder and stretched his hands out gathering his magic to him, slowly undoing the circle. He muttered a spell and moments later a bright blue ball blossomed before him before it streaked away leaving a sparkling trail that would only be seen by those who could control the eldritch powers. The faint blue sparkles led him across the abandoned factory floor and to a staircase that went up to the second floor. “The trail is faint, but Jamie was here.” Elly leapt from Daniel’s shoulder and transformed into a beautiful woman dressed in a skin-tight black outfit. She turned and flashed her green eyes before winking at him. “Stay close,” she purred as she nearly flew up the stairs following the sparkles. Elly was halfway down the hall when she froze. Her long black hair seemed to rise above her shoulders before she crashed to the floor, unconscious and in her cat form. The air seemed to take on a charge. “Darkness cannot hide the light, all dangers come into my sight,” Daniel repeated the incantation and spread his hands. Two small beams shot from his hands and split at two inches into four beans and in two more inches into eight and so forth. The beams not only kept splitting they changed direction, moving up and down as well as left and right. In less than a minute three figures were illuminated by the magic. Their unfinished shapes made it clear that they were magical creations and not real people, though that didn’t make them any less dangerous. Daniel took a deep breath. “This is beginning to really piss me off,” he muttered as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small sapphire ring. He slipped it on and the stone began to glow. “You will die!” The three golems spoke with one voice and began to shuffle toward him. “That’s what you think.” One of the golems lifted a huge cabinet off the floor and flung it at him. Daniel dove to the side, but it shattered as it smashed into the wall where he had been standing and one the drawers exploded launching what had been a beautiful lead glass paperweight into a heavy projectile that slammed into his side shattering his ribs. Daniel forced himself to his feet tasting his own blood. He couldn’t afford to die or give up. Daniel hated to use a power stone. It took so long to fill one, but he had a feeling someone was using Jamie as bait. If he depleted his own reserve he would be an easy target to kill and now he was hurt. Luckily, he was stronger than most new witches and was able to use spells that nearly everyone wouldn’t even attempt until their mid-forties, if ever, due to their demand for enormous amounts of power. He wasn’t stupid, but he was confident. The stone held over a year’s worth of power. Wearing it now gave him access, immediately recharging himself and giving him the ability to cast major spells alone. “From the seas to mountains, from east to the west, let the winds and rain gather round, let nature protect me best.” The spell began as a soft misty breeze from an ocean but grew quickly like an arctic storm ripping through the hills and valleys. Lightening, wind, and hail the size of grapefruit tore through the hallway destroying the furniture, rugs, and the golems that lay just beyond Elly. It was as if someone had set a level four hurricane into the hallway, and nothing would survive its wrath. Daniel stomped over the flooding and carefully lifted Elly into his arms. Without a moment’s hesitation, he sent a healing spell into his familiar. He arranged her body around his neck and marched down the hallway. Every door had been blown open. The storm had washed trap spells and protection spells away. It also destroyed an illusion spell that had hidden a small doorway with a narrow staircase. At the base of the stairs lay the sputtering remains of the blue finder spell he’d released earlier. “Don’t come any closer or I’ll kill you both.” The voice rasped from the darkest shadows. Daniel had had enough. He gathered his power and sent a pulse into the roof. Daniel knew he had finally reached the end of his search. He was tired, drained, and most of all he was pissed off. He was furious at being hurt, seeing Elly hurt, and having Jamie taken from him. Someone would pay dearly for it all. Suddenly, the spell he’d sent into the ceiling took hold and space exploded into light, exposing everything. Sprawled across the room was Jamie. It was clear he’d been caught by the storm spell as he was soaked and bruised from the hail. A quick look around showed that he was the only one there, but as Daniel looked at the man he had fallen for he could also see another person whom he didn’t know occupying the same physical space. “Jamie?” Daniel stared unable to comprehend what he was witnessing. “Yes and no.” The figure cackled. “We knew you would be a great force of good if you were allowed to continue.” The figure coughed and spit up blood. It smiled, its teeth now red and the green eyes that Daniel felt he should know were filled with contempt. “Who are you?” “We were meant to be your executioner. We knew you were strong, but you just kept fighting to get to your precious Jamie. Wherever you found such power, We know not. We tried to weaken you, corrupt you, and even kill you. Instead, when we bonded with our golems you destroyed them, which should be impossible.” Daniel shook as he slowly approached Jamie. He could use his eldritch powers and see a dark figure wearing Jamie like a coat. Jamie was becoming clearer and clearer, like a drawing that was slowly losing its color. The figure within was dark and seemed to shift like smoke caught in a draft. “We bought his soul and kept him. He actually liked you, but the more he fought to protect you the faster it burned him out. Now he is almost gone and We barely got to taste him.” Daniel realized that Jamie had been a lost soul or a demon’s plaything. He’d been a figure that was beautiful and seemed innocent but was controlled totally by another for evil intentions. Something inside Daniel broke. He’d found Jamie, but he’d lost him as well and the only way to release him was to end him. Daniel raised the hand with his ring on and pointed at Jamie. Tears streamed down his face and his voice cracked. “Goodbye Jamie.” Flames engulfed the area as Daniel made his way out of the abandoned factory. As explosions roared behind him, Daniel stumbled forward, almost unconsciously stroking Elly as he made his way toward home.

    Chapter 33

    The twins are barely hanging on and I get the feeling Jay isn't fully good either. Drew has a lot still coming at him, so he better keep stepping up. Cerrian is a treasure. She is her own special being, but God she loves her family and the twins and Jay are now apart of that family. Now I just fear their grandmother.
