Jaden parried a blow from Flame as Alistair swung back around and advanced on her again. She dodged the next swing and pushed the tip of her dagger against his ribcage until he yielded. Alistair was teaching her how to fight with Ember. Each night before bed, Alistair gave her lessons on fighting within using her magic. Though he wanted to start without weapons, Jaden was insistent that she learn how to work with Ember – her new magical dagger. Even though the dagger was small in comparison to Alistair’s blade, Flame, she wielded it deftly from the start. Continue reading

Sometimes I lose track of where I came from. I never forget, not really, but I just can’t quite trace it back sometimes.

A long time ago, the lowlifes never feared me and the cops and politicians would sooner kick me into the gutter than seek out my help. I wasn’t a weapon to them. I was trash. Continue reading

Dappled patches of sunlight were barely visible through the window of the small cottage. Birds chirped their beckoning calls to Jaden as she sat, reading the history book her warden, Alistair, instructed her to. She had just six pages left to read and summarise before she had nothing but free time for the rest of the day. With hurried hands and an impatient mind, she wrote the last few sentences and tucked the parchment into the book. She practically pranced to Alistair’s study and plonked the heavy book on his dark oak desk.

Gun for Hire

The first time I posted this particular piece, it started with an apology for being slack. Here is another *smacks own hand*.

So I had an idea recently, and it grew, as ideas do. I’m republishing this piece now as part of a series, alongside another series, but it all meets up eventually. This is the first chapter for this character, and my next piece is the first chapter of another character.

I know, I know, I’m not making much sense, but just hear me out, okay? And keep an eye out for the next chapter – which as is all brand new, straight from the depths of my mind.

Enjoy!

Update: There are now more installments – read them in the following order:

The Fear

Sometimes I love my solitude. Well, I love it a lot. I can go days without seeing anyone I know and not bat an eyelid. Some days, I revel in it.

I love the darkness too. I’ve always been a night owl, and comfortable in the dark. One of my favourite things is the moment when you’re about to go to sleep, or maybe just lying in bed trying to sleep, and you turn the lights off. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll find a moment of perfect blackness, perfect darkness, when you can’t tell the difference between your eyes being open or closed. No light, just perfect stillness, darkness.

There’s an analogy I once read, that some people only have so much energy to spend on certain days. Only a few things can replenish that energy, like sleep or being alone with a good book. I feel that way most days. My house, my room, and being by myself are what replenish my energy. And being with my boy. They are my safe havens.

I love my solititude, my perfect darkness, and my space.

But sometimes, I get afraid of the dark.

Sometimes, I’m afraid to be alone.

And being afraid scares me.

Generalisations and stereotypes

I try not generalise or subscribe to stereotypes. Once you’ve subscribed to a certain stereotype it’s very difficult to see the exceptions to that perceived rule, and incredibly difficult for others to challenge your perception of that rule.

Some stereotypes can be harmless, some people do embody a stereotype regardless of whether they are the norm (stereotypes have to come from somewhere, I guess), and sometimes stereotypes are infuriating. Especially to those who do not conform to that stereotype’s characteristics even though they do fit into the category.

I find myself in that last group all the time. It truly is infuriating.

I will ride with you.

*updated*

Okay, so I’m going to jump on a bandwagon for a moment.

Actually, I’m going to stay on this bandwagon.

Anyone in Australia – and some overseas – will know about the Sydney Siege that is happening right now and has been happening for nearly 13 hours. A gunman has people held hostage in a cafe in Sydney. Most are assuming he is a Muslim terrorist, at this stage. I won’t comment that part right now, except to say I’m hoping with fibre of my being that everyone makes it out unharmed, and the perpetrator never again sees the light of day.

*update – the siege is over, as of 2am, and while the outcome could have been better, it also could have been much worse. Sure enough, the gunman will never see the sun rise again, but his death comes with the tragic and devastating loss of two hostages as well. My thoughts are with those families, and the people who must now recover from this terrifying incident.

Delicious indeed…
