Viva la Revolution – HQ to Infirmary

After we all recovered we were inside and in headquarters via the service elevators we’d brought Naomi and Gordon in on. It was almost deja vu except Walker was still not up to par. “Go to the Infirmary. I got this part. I’ll be there when I’m done.” Walker didn’t even hesitate as I got…

Viva la Revolution – Gotcha

I kissed the top of Sage’s forehead and left his basement apartment office space. Thankfully the phone was in New York City. It was in Hell’s Kitchen at the moment – stationary and hopefully doing her thing. And by her thing I meant hacking. I asked. “Sage, can you get a status on your friends…

Viva la Revolution – Caught

Walking around Hell’s Kitchen was a bit nostalgic for me. It was Adrian’s territory and I used to walk around the neighborhood before and after sessions when I was avoiding my other lessons. I’d grown a lot since I first roamed. You could tell where the roan wolves holed up in Adrian’s pack. The area…

Tracking the Signal – Coffee Run

Ant grabbed my elbow, and we stepped into the shadows. There was a wrenching sensation, and we were sitting in another set of shadows. I crouched down near the floor and held my stomach and fought back the nausea. Ant chuckled above me. “You always take it so poorly. Even Allison who is weak in…

Tracking the Signal – Collaboration

We took the train to Sage’s house. Ant hide in the shadows but since most of it was underground it made little difference. He didn’t have to be there. But this was his contact, so he came, anyway. Even though I knew Sage would do this for me and all I had to do was ask….

Bigger Than We Thought – Breakfast with Dad

I missed Sage, but I had things to do. But when I got out of the shower I sent Sage a text. Me 646-555-4512 Tue, 06/26/2015 The shower was lonely without you. 5:37 AM I was outside Kai’s apartment door when I received Sage’s reply. Mysterious blue eyed boy 646-555-2915 Tue, 06/26/2015 You are making…

Bigger Than We Thought – Future Talk

I made pancakes. I had intended to make them for Drake in the morning. I had more than enough to make a few for Sage before he had to get to work. I got lost in the food preparation and my own thoughts. Thoughts of Sage and life and the fate of humanity if we…

Bigger Than We Thought – Modus Interruptus

Sleep came. So did the dreams. The dreams always came, but they were different. Less vivid. The red glowing eyes weren’t quite so red. More a soft glow just barely making out a color. The pain imagined from the blows was still unimaginable. But when the face came into view and it was time to…

Bigger Than We Thought – Unexpected Guest

I was going to walk home, but I figured I’d forget to call Sage when I did. I could pick up Drake and we could spend the night tossing and turning, but then I’d deprive my father of his grandson. I still took the train home, and I was walking up the stairs as I…

The Den – Walk Me Home

We walked for several blocks before Sage turned down a side street and then down an alley way. I asked, “Alley’s are a little dicey at this time of night, aren’t they?” He smiled. “I’ve pack protection. Besides you are with me now.” “So you don’t take this alley way without me?” I asked playfully….

The Den – Meeting The Wicked Truth

We followed Ant outside and into the back of the building. My stomach churned at the knowledge of how Ant intended us to get to where we were going. He offered me his hand which I took without question. He grabbed Walker by the elbow and he literally stepped into the shadows of the buildings…

The Rest of the Family – Babysitter

I headed to my room for a shower. I could have called Sage, but I figured that would be pointless. So I sent him a text instead. Me 646-555-4512 Mon, 06/25/2015 Have a late night again. Working Late. 1:05 PM My shower was quick and I called Treec. She answered quickly. I didn’t even bother…

The Rest of the Plan – Seduce Me

After visiting my father I took a nap. It was unlike me, but I needed sleep now or I’d not be able to function later when it mattered. Balance needed to be restored. The one good thing about naps is no nightmares. It was refreshing sleeping during the day when I was supposed to. Three…

The Rest of the Plan – The Wicked Truth

I walked a small distance behind Walker and Emerson but we didn’t walk much farther when I saw Emerson take a deep breath. I saw fire pull in from the elements around him and build in his chest. It was like watching a slow motion reel in the movie theater. I threw a wall of…

Bombs – Captured

The substation was encompassed about half a block with lots of high voltage signs all over the fence. It was easy enough to hope the fence even with the barbed wire at the top, but I didn’t have to, there was a hole the size of a man burnt into the fencing. As if that…

Bombs – A Vampire Haven

I lead us to the subway station to get to our next destination. The train rattled into the platform and Walker didn’t say anything until the train started moving again. “How do you know when to not shoot first?” I smiled as I sat across from him. “I don’t shoot at all unless they are…

Sept 6, 2015 @ 4:45AM

Yesterday was a busy day, I didn’t get a chance to hit the writing.  I didn’t wake up with nightmares this morning.  My alarm actually woke me up.  Sage is still curled up in his bed sleeping.  He rolled over when my alarm went off after kissing me good morning.  I missed him.  I needed…

Sept 4, 2015 @ 6:30PM

We are almost to HQ in Boulder.  Another 1 hour hike, but the boys all wanted to camp out one more night.  I think they were hoping that Dylan and Michaela would catch up with them.  I think they felt abandoned by them.  Left to die.  I didn’t have the heart to tell them that…

Sept 4, 2015 @ 10:06AM

Darwyn came back with his buck, the boys helped him cook it and we ate well outside the ruined village. I buried as many of the bodies I could. Matt and Faelen helped me. Respecting the dead of our fallen foes. All of the boys filtered off into their little cliques. The teams didn’t stick…

Sept 4, 2015 @ 2:06AM 

Shortly after my little speech we heard an explosion in the direction we were heading. Everyone ran in that direction.  We were still an hour out by the time we saw the billowing smoke it was too late. I could smell the stench of burning flesh and hair.  The fire burned hot and it smelled…
