Resume

Resume, by Dorothy Parker.

Can’t sleep: cockroaches, blue tongue lizards, and geckos will eat me.

So really weird and random things happen in my household all the time. I mean, really freaking insane things. Sometimes those things are spaced out a little, and sometimes shit gets cray real quick.

Jujicus Ju’l Jorander – palm destroyer and terrible ballroom dancer

Once, a long time ago now, I wrote about a long night spent at the vet with one of my dogs. The Dopey One. I half intended to write more about my babies on this blog but never got around to it. Writing about things that aren’t real life is way more fun than reality.

Gun on Fire

So this is the idea I had that sparked this whole series. I had two separate characters and two separate stories in my head – then a random thought changed everything.
As always, for those not caught up, please read in order of the list below!

Gun for Hire
Pursuit of Fire
Gun for Hire – Square One
Pursuit of Fire – Learning
Gun for Hire – Resurgence
Pursuit of Fire – New World
Gun on Fire (this one)

“Missing me so soon, Eddie?” I’ve barely left his apartment and he wants more. We’ve been spending a lotta time together lately – mostly trying to piece together what Adem Black is doing, but it’s recreational as well. He laughs and gets straight down to business.

“That call I got as you left? My buddy in uniform. Another body’s been found in our favourite district. You busy?”

The lights change and I cross the street – wishing I’d driven, as the rain pelts down. “You wanna pick me up?”

“Nah, got something to take care of. Body was found in an alley two streets down from Adem’s old warehouse – off Southmore Street. You got it?”

“Southmore Street, near Delaney’s Warehouse. Just where I wanted to be on my night off. I’ll check it out,” I hang up and look around for a cab. One comes past to stop at the lights and I turn – half knocking over some kid walking too close behind me. She apologises and ducks out of the way, but as I get in the cab and give him the address, I catch her staring at me. Probably some junkie too whacked-out to know where she is. She oughtta be careful. Continue reading

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 without 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:
