Hello all, today’s post is much later than usual, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t break the streak ^_^.
Due to the late hour and the fact that my work day’s not quite done yet, I’m going to resurrect a piece of flash that hasn’t been shared on this blog but is available on Wattpad.com in Jacob’s Apocalypse and Other Stories which is my free collection of speculative flash and short fiction. It will be available on Amazon in November 2015, with tons of additional new content including new fiction ^_^.
For now, enjoy and click the link above to read the other currently included stories 🙂 –
Family Secrets (YA Paranormal/Fantasy)
~ The wind was loud, pushing against the shutters as she sat in the otherwise deep quiet of the room. She was perturbed, her discomfort washing over her like an infection that had no intention of being cured. They had all left after the big reveal, leaving her to her own devices and haunting memories of the night’s events. If for any reason she couldn’t recall on her own, the one light still flickering happily, cast shadows that showed her roaming eyes the mess that had been made. But really, she didn’t need to look to know the damage that had been done. Should she close her eyes, she could see the images as clearly as if they had occurred moments before, not hours.
The simply inhuman strength and speed exhibited by her family, people she had known her entire life, had terrified her. Their explanation had been even more unsettling, especially when she had learnt that her time of change loomed just months away. After her fifteenth birthday she wouldn’t be mortal anymore, she’d have to suffer through the pain they had warned her about. A prospect that gave her chills.
“A family of vampires,” she whispered to herself, absently touching her teeth. She wasn’t sure she wanted to be a member.~
