ASN 4.6 One Answer

Lacey didn’t have a chance to answer for hours, as that moment brought Walter and Ryan coming back through the door. Walter raised an eyebrow at the four of them standing in the middle of the couches, with Siobhan still in a loose kind of stance. “Danger?” Walter asked with a raised eyebrow, his eyes […]


4.5 Who?

Twenty minutes later there were multiple police cars parked at the edge of the woods, and a corresponding number of police officers going through the area with flashlights—but spirits were not high among the searchers. “We’re probably going to have to come back in the morning, boss,” Ryan said after another half hour of searching. […]


ASN 4.4 A Bump in the Night

“So…I lost track of you guys during the fight in the High School,” Siobhan explained. “But outside, my dad shanked the King of the Faeries.” Both other girls, in the process of sitting down on the couch next to one another, froze and stared at them. “I know, he’s such a show-off,” she offered with […]


ASN 4.4 A Blur in the Woods

It was divided into two rooms and a bathroom; the larger room was storage from their multiple moves and is where they went. The slightly smaller room […]


ASN 4.1 Armament

Walter opened the door to the house and stepped over the enlarged pile of shoes in front of the door, noting them with a glance and a chuckle. He looked back over his shoulder to Andre and Leah, who were stepping in behind him. “Looks like we have some company. You guys want to stay […]


ASN 4.0 Not Right

Winter refused to give up its hold on the city entirely, and as evening set it had brought a chill with it. It settled in and sent people in to their homes and even licked frost on windows by the river. The cold air that blew through the city brought Siobhan, Antigone, Lacey, and Monica […]
