RDC(R&D): The Forsaken Few

RDC (R&D): Thy Brothers Keeper

*Chapter Thirty-Eight* Tears trailed down my cheeks as blood continued to spill from my mouth, the taste of copper and silent screams overwhelmed my palate, the searing burn of my ability was immediate.

RDC (R&D): WAR.

*Chapter Thirty-Six* Why had I agreed to this shit?.. I still don’t know how the Wolf had smooth talked me into doing the unthinkable, I should have told him to pass me by with this bullshit. We were gambling, with my life as the only bargaining chip, all bets were off and it was too…

*Chapter Thirty-Five* Early in the morning, my eyes shot open as I was awoken by screaming, it sounded like Granny, I moved to get up only to find the Wolf had one of his muscled arms wrapped around my waist. He moaned my name in his sleep, squeezing me tighter to him, and as much…

RDC(R&D): Left behind

*Chapter Thrity-Three* I soaked in the jacuzzi bath for about forty minutes, I was determined to wash away all the dirt, death, and sin from my body. I used damn near half the bottle of some expensive bath tonic and scrubbed myself with vigor, there was a faint aroma of lavender in the air, that…

RDC(R&D): Sanctuary

*Chapter Thirty-Two* I pressed the red button on the shower wall, causing steaming hot water to cascade down onto my body, rinsing my skin of blood, dirt, and decay.

RDC(R&D): Save Us From Ourselves

*Chapter Thirty-One* I watched, as Bloodhound thrust his knife into the skull of the last risen in our way, Husk then made an immediate attempt to open the cage door but it wouldn’t budge. He rammed it with his shoulder a few times, before the other mercenary went to assist, but even with the two…

RDC(R&D): Strive to Survive

  *Chapter Thirty* I snatched Bloodhound by his throat as soon as the words escaped his mouth, surprising even myself, when I lifted him off of the ground. He dropped his guns so that his hands could come up to grasp my wrist, a valiant attempt at an escape maneuver, but I squeezed his neck…

RDC(R&D): The End of Us All

*Chapter Twenty-Nine* I dodge swiftly to my left, barely escaping the hand that claw wildly for my throat, I thrust upward with my dagger in an uppercut, lodging my knife deep into its skull. The other was quickly disposed of with a gunshot blast to the face, the kid never took his eyes off me,…

RDC(R&C): Drowning Within

*Chapter Twenty-Eight* The ride was rough and weary, as we traveled on through the night into the next day, taking the safest route possible.

RDC(R&D): The Hot Trail

*Chapter  Twenty-Seven* I stepped off the RV, scanning my eyes around for the Doctor and the Wolf, immediately finding them by frontside of the Betty.
