Raven was silent upon our return to my dwelling. I suspected she was musing upon our lesson, and this pleased me immensely.  This would mean that she has already begun to understand her power, and the responsibility to use it.  I glance behind me, impatient to return to my home.  Perhaps Rowan would be awaiting...

“My place of rest calls to me, its story of slumber drawing me forth as the first lightening of the night begins, the shadows slightly less dense and seeming to reach towards my guides. The youth is aware of our watchers, and will now have warned his compatriots, leaving me free to gather Scythe to my heart and settle into my darkness like a well-loved blanket”

I awaken at the darkening of the day, the glowing ball in the sky slinking back to the sky like a sly charlatan. The shadows are pooling around the trees bases, as though they bleed spirits from below. From where I lay, I observe my guides, the two deceptive ones just stirring from the hard beds they’d made out of their long clothes coverings and…

The Last Light


I stood at the window that looked over downtown, affording me a view of the city that I loved. The mist from the waterfront was creeping in over the wharfs and the small, well maintained pathways.  The news was on again, the reporter talking about a new book, “How I survived some monster” sort of tell all, and backstory had been played so much that my brain ached.  It was all anyone talked about for so long, a mass murder in a city not 150 miles from here, some crazed maniac murdering people and stabbing them with mop handles.  Inventive enough I supposed, who thinks of that?  That wasn’t the cause of excitement however, the real fervor was over the survivor.
