A Feral Betrayal Chapter 1

Marissa tilted her head as she regarded the stranger standing across the room. The woman looked exhausted, and there were dark circles under her brown eyes. Her jet-black hair was cut short and hidden under an equally dark cap. The woman held her hands to her mouth, her face covered in shock and concern. Advertisements

Procrastination is my middle name

It’s been about a month since I wrote the last chapter of “A Feral Affair.” I don’t really have an excuse. I am a procrastinator at heart and because of who I am as a person I cannot even say when I will begin to write the rest of it. The plan is to start putting it all together over the weekend. To be fairly honest, this is the most active I have been with posting the chapters seeing as it usually takes me about a year or so tops to even get one out. We won’t talk about the three year long hiatus I was on either. Dark period of time that was. Oh what a time it was. We shant talk about it the same way we won’t talk about the year that shall not be named (The one between 2015 and 2017). But it’s not as though I don’t know where I am going. I already started writing the chapter, but it’s a bit difficult to get the exact direction I want …

Feral Affair Chapter 19

The discussion on their shifter poison ended with just the name. Melanie didn’t explain what was in it nor how it affected shifters. All she knew was that she wanted no parts of it. She did learn, however, that it wasn’t just in the bullets. Explosives, knives, hell even the damn batons were made of it. “If majority of the Felids in the Valley are dead, why are you guys still in full war mode?” She asked, having watched them for hours going back and forth with loading and unloading things capable of killing her. “Because we are in war mode,” Melanie answered without taking her eyes off the paper in front of her. She was on the couch checking things off a list. “You think everything will really go back to normal after all of this? And you certainly can’t think just killing Kaleb with that godawful, poorly written, novella excuse, was going to sit well with people?” Course not. And speaking of which. “Do we have to ki–” Melanie slammed the paper on …

Feral Affair Chapter 18

“Again. If you had done your job, then you wouldn’t be stressed out like this.” Abdul was getting tired of watching Jamoy pace around the basement. While he was being honest, he was also very tired of hiding in the damp and decrepit hole as well. Unlike the Felids that were being picked off at random, him and Jamoy were actually being targeted. He wasn’t entirely surprised, but, again, he was tired. Not to mention, hiding out was boring. “How many times has our Job description changed since we arrived here? First we had to find the ‘threat’,” Jamoy put the word in air quotes as he complained, “Whatever the fuck that was suppose to mean, then it turned into kill the hunters. Now it’s kill Marissa and her plaything. Why exactly were we really sent here?” Abdul merely shrugged his shoulders from his seat, uninterested as he  fiddled with a piece of lint he pulled from his shirt. “Look, eventually, they’re going to send someone else out here to finish this,and us, if we don’t …

Feral Affair Chapter 17

The town was on lock-down, The main roads leading into and out of it were closed, and skillful marksmen were placed on rooftops to remove anyone suspicious. Communication to the outside was blocked to ensure no outside interference. They had even managed to secure one of those freaks and use him to bait the others into the open. Even if they weren’t Felids, and were out and about they were targets. It was their own fault for not staying inside as they were told. So how was it they were still unable to kill one little girl? Robert Coldwell slammed his fists down on the desk before him as a fit of rage enveloped him. “If you had killed her from the start then you wouldn’t have this problem.” His harsh glare settled on his son’s smug form. “You know why I couldn’t.” “Actually you could. All of this makes no damn sense,” Dominic threw his hands in the air in frustration. “You’ve had ample opportunities to search out the cretin in this town and …

Feral Affair Chapter 16

“What. Are. The. Odds!” Dominic laughed. He had been smug and annoying ever since he and his men captured Kaleb. “Just when we were about to assume you escaped town, there you are! Running around like a fool.” Silence. “My sister is so simple I know she has to be here as well. She’s one of those loyal idiots so she wouldn’t leave you behind.” Kaleb wished to God he would shut up. “What? Nothing to say? Is the shame too much for you to bear?” The collar around his neck and the chains bounding him to the floor were the only things keeping Dominic from losing his tongue. For whatever reason, it wouldn’t allow him to shift. Since physical harm was out of the question, Kaleb resigned to silence. There was no point in arguing with him. It would only be a waste of energy. Eesac’s home was in the center of the town, just outside the Orchid Square where majority of Autumn Valley’s festivities were held. It made searching for Marissa so much …

Feral Affair Chapter 15

Shit, he had dozed off hadn’t he? Kaleb’s eyes fluttered open to see that he wasn’t in the same spot Marissa had left him. Well duh, He thought as he sat up and glanced around, taking in his new surroundings. Unless the forest had a sudden make over by a highly sought interior designer, obviously he wasn’t in the same place. Its Chinese-esque style with chinoiserie wallpaper, ikat pillows, a bold shade of sunset oranges, gold benches and Hollywood Regency touches told him he was in the home of someone with great tastes. “Up so soon?” Kaleb’s fangs were already bared and a low growl rumbled from the depths of his throat at the dark haired man that stood on the far side of the room. As he approached, eerily gray eyes scanned over Kaleb’s body. His rage, completely ignored. “Your recovery time is remarkable.” He reached out to touch the weakened male, but paused as he noticed the heightened hostility. There was no growl, but he could see from the icy stare that touching him would …

Feral Affair Chapter 13

“I’m surprised you managed to make it back with him.” Mr. McCormic said while washing his hands free of the blood that had accumulated on them. He had been handling Kaleb’s mangled body for some time after she struggled to get him back to the mansion. That in itself was a feat. He came to now and again and walked with her, but constantly blacked out. By the time they got back, she felt like he looked. Mr.McCormic also had his hands full with the moving. The time to move was now. Some of the residents were already gone while the rest were lagging. Mr. McCormic suggested she leave with one of the older boys but she refused. “You should get some rest. It’s late. I’ll look after him and…” He could only shake his head. She wasn’t even listening to him. “I’ll check on you both in a few. Do get some sleep.” Marissa heard the door click as the old man left, never bothering to look at him. All she could do was …

Feral Affair Chapter 11

So this was what it meant to be losing your mind. It wasn’t until she stopped running, when she was deep inside the forest, did she realize what had happened. Marissa should have broken her leg, sprained it at least. There should be some kind of fracture somewhere, but there wasn’t. Not even the slightest bruise was on her after leaping out of the window. She hadn’t even been terrified. She landed precisely on her feet and took off in a sprint towards who knows where. All of this was crazy. So what the hell were they? Werewolves? No, that would mean they had to be wolves wouldn’t it? Werecats? God that sounded stupid. And she was supposed to believe that she was one of them? It was too much. She still wanted to believe it was a dream but it was becoming harder and harder to do so. She should have jumped awake several times by now, startled and dripping with sweat from the fear of it all, but she hadn’t. No, she was still …

Feral Affair Chapter 10

She found herself glazing over into an inescapable daydream state where her eyes seemed transfixed on nothingness. Every arrangement or meeting she made whilst in this state, made her wonder whether it all actually happen; The people, the faces, the voices, the places, had it all just been a dream? Every word shared with another person felt unreal. When the confusion became overpowering she just wanted to cry. Or was she already? She placed a hand on her face, feeling the wet trail of fallen tears. There were a set of eyes on her, watching, waiting, but none stepped closer. They kept their distance, though the concern they felt for her was evident in their expressions. Yet, she was tense. They weren’t the people she once felt safe with. These were strangers. But, this was all a dream. So, she was waiting on time. Soon, it would bring her back to reality, soon the dream would wear off…It had to. ————————– “She’s still looking out the window,” Mr. McCormic said as he closed the door …
