“Comedy Thursdays” Part 1: A Cook in the Land of Dreams

  Hi! I am Elijah and I am exhausted! It all started a few months ago, when I was hired by none other than Queen Fairytale, the monarch of the Land of Dreams.

“Mercy”

The sun was annoying her. The heat was annoying her. The birds singing? Disgusting. The happy couples, strolling in the park in blissful ignorance? She wished them all to go to hell. Everything was annoying her. At any other time, she would've attributed her anger to trivial things, but not today. Today, her anger was … Continue reading “Mercy”

“Chapter 8: An unlikely cooperation”

Emilia was reluctantly sipping her coffee. She and Max had stopped near the Forest of Benjamin, a small patch of green between Valedorn and their next stop.

“Chapter 3: A Stubborn Watch”

Emilia finished reading the letter. She sat on the chair, breathing heavily. Tears were running down her eyes, yet it was not sadness that she felt. It was something inexplicable, something unknown to her. Hugh and Max Petersteel knew each other. They had discovered something together. And she never knew. He kept secrets from her. … Continue reading “Chapter 3: A Stubborn Watch”

“The Order’s Goal”

"It all began during the False God years" said Laura, still keeping Mericus at gunpoint. "It was the year 2021, by their calendar. The year of the Third World War. Unpreceeded chaos, violence and billions of deaths occured for the first time. Billions, Mericus. Do you realise the magnitude of the losses?" "Am I here … Continue reading “The Order’s Goal”
