RDC (R&D): The Long Goodbye

*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. I could smell it in my hair, combined with the familiar smoky aroma always present after being so close to fire. I’d been in the bathroom…

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&D): Pandemonium

*Chapter Twenty-Five* Serafi lifted the pistol, and shot a woman that was about to take a bite out of Husk’s shoulder.

SGG(1): I Pray..

*Chapter Nine*   I grabbed the nearest thing to me, which so happen to be a ceramic vase from my dresser, and I launched it across the room at Cedric’s head. The red eyed rage had consumed me and God had clearly forsaken my prayers for restraint. It missed, smashing against the wall into pieces,…

RDC(R&D): The Gift of the Curse

*Chapter Twenty-Four*     It was the young blonde girl that had bitten Patience, she growled fiercely at me, and her eyes were swollen and red.

RDC(R&D): Red Eyed Rage

*Chapter Twenty-Three* Around noon, we had all gathered in the Betty to have a meeting of our own, everyone was present, so there was very little sitting room.

RDC(R&D): The Gift of Hospitality

*Chapter Twenty-One* After we finished eating, the General had a woman lead us to, what were to be our sleeping quarters for the night ahead.

RDC(R&D): The Gift of Bliss

*Chapter Nineteen* “I just don’t think it’s the best idea, ok?” I told them, not backing down. “I’m with Loki, how can we trust them after all this? I say we keep on our way, and forget they’re even there..” Tzar chimed in, giving his two cents, sensing the same danger as I. “Guys bear…

RDC(R&D): The Gift of Life

*Chapter Eighteen* There was always something a little different about the young girl, and I could never quite put my finger on it. It was almost.. supernatural in a way. The sensations and feelings that enveloped you, when she started to sing, it could and often would leave you in an unexplainable trance. Her presence…

RDC(R&D): Stranger Things

*Chapter Seventeen* Pain raced through my body as it twisted and contorted from agonising spasms, the bones beneath my flesh experienced an ache I never knew to be possible. It was as if the marrow itself was on fire, and for a moment I wonder if this be the Hell of Old Testament mythology, a…
