He tried not to look. He knew it would be gaping open.  He knew it would be a sight that he would remember for the rest of his life, but he couldn’t look.  He needed to focus.  He needed to get this report done.  A small bead of sweat swelled on Paul’s temple and he […]

The Wolf’s Head (Part V)


Continuation of “The Wolf’s Head (Part IV)” There was something familiar about the landscape before me.  Whether it was because I had seen something similar in my previous life or perhaps the colours just naturally fitted together so well, I couldn’t tell.  For whatever reason, there was something that stirred my mind into a knowing […]

Continuation of “The Wolf’s Head (Part III)” I had finished my mead and was just about to pull myself to my feet and make my way back to the comfort of my room when the bar woman returned.  This time, instead of wordlessly moving through my corner of the bar, she paused and gave me […]

Empty Packets


My submission for @TheDarkGlobe1 ‘s writing competition, slightly tweeked post entry.  the original entry can be found here She wandered through the faceless crowd.

For One Night Only…


“Gentlemen to the left, ladies to the right, please. Take off your jackets and remove all headgear.” Jacob called out over the hubbub of the nightclub’s lobby. The building had used to be an old cinema and still had the ostentatious plaster work and fake Greco-Roman pillars around its walls. In the daylight it looked […]

Causes


He liked it by the sea.  The soft growl of the waves scurrying up the pebble beach reminded him of the hum of the engines, and the cool breeze felt almost as fresh as newly cleansed air.  Most days he would simply lie on his terrace completely naked, but for a blindfold, and let the […]
