Interludes 2

It has been 4 weeks since my first interludes post, so I thought it was a good time to do one again. To be fair, I hadn’t planned it, but it fit in the schedule, which meant I went with the flow. To be honest, I’ve had a really hard time lately to get theContinue reading “Interludes 2”

Nadec ch 5: Laughter and tears

The empty look on Wyny’s face only added to her fit of hysterical laughter. Whenever it eased down into giggles, she made the mistake of looking at him again and that set her off once more. After the fourth time, she managed to keep from looking in his direction. The giggles scattered into an occasionalContinue reading “Nadec ch 5: Laughter and tears”

Nadec ch 4: The squares

The last one of the Blurghs stumbled away in the direction where the other one had gone. Nadec knelt on the ground next to Kitty, congratulating the cat for jumping against the knob in precisely the right way. It looks like the practice they’d been doing had paid off. Nadec didn’t think Kitty would’ve beenContinue reading “Nadec ch 4: The squares”

Nadec ch 3: blurgh-woods

‘This is wonderful!’ The voice coming from her bathroom sounded as if on the verge of climax. Nadec grunted in recognition. A good hot shower can do that to a person, she knew the feeling well enough. Especially after spending a lot of time in the other realm, where the only option of washing yourselfContinue reading “Nadec ch 3: blurgh-woods”

Trap

‘Is it a trap?’ They both looked at the orange in the middle of the path. Then they looked at it each other and shrugged simultaneously. Moving in the opposite direction, they circled the fruit. ‘It doesn’t look like a trap,’ one of the sisters muttered. ‘No, it doesn’t. But neither did the mango.’ TheContinue reading “Trap”

Stranger

‘I have no time for this,’ Nadec announced to the man laying at her feet, who looked around in confusion. ‘I’m already past my deadline.’ Her cat jumped from her shoulders, sniffing at the strangers’ bare knees. Nadec grabbed her halberd from her back, once again praising herself for making the mechanism for shortening itsContinue reading “Stranger”

Quarterstaff and rum

The travelling merchant pulled the lever to make his cart-puller stop. Not even waiting for a complete stand still, he jumped off, and began to rewind its core, all the way to the end of the coil. That should be enough to continue his journey at least a few more hours, until the darkness cameContinue reading “Quarterstaff and rum”

Am I a creative person? (interludes 0.1)

For the first time since I started this blog several weeks ago, there is no flash fiction story today. I do want to stick to my regular schedule of posting a blog every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 6pm Sydney time, so here are some of my ponderings, and a quick talk about all theContinue reading “Am I a creative person?

Skill of a butterfly

The butterfly was magnificent with its splendid array of stunning colours. The wings fluttered slightly while landing on Yesco’s outstretched palm, the movement emphasizing the iridescent red, blue, purple, white and black. She sighed in relief. The first animal she’s been able to call to her. It had taken her several tries in the pastContinue reading “Skill of a butterfly”
