Mythanthrope, Wanda's Story, Part 5
The building was one of those slick ultramodern numbers. It resembled a confluence of geometric shapes and sharp curves, steel and glass plates juxtaposed with laminated wooden panels and windows. There appeared to be a large three-storied central interior with a few smaller two and single-storied additions on its west and east faces, though given the building's lack of symmetry this would only become apparent after careful examination. It was the kind of structure that might hold luxury condominiums, a concert hall or megachurch. Or the Chrysalis Corporation Training and Enrichment Center.
"Nice looking place," commented Wanda's mother pleasantly as she turned into sprawling parking lot.
"Yeah, I guess," said Wanda. She gazed out the passenger side window at the center, idly scratching the scales on her face. The Chrysalis building was situated in the center a recently constructed upscale shopping center adjoining the freeway. There were several chains, a wholesaler megastore, a home

The Last Recruit - Chapter 8
Silvia stepped around a large fallen branch and lurched forward as her boot sunk into an unexpectedly deep pile of snow. She managed to keep her balance but wound up stumbling into a drift, caking her lower body with white powder. Silvia cursed and wiped the ice from her trousers. In her haste to leave she had neglected to don her punkeje and, although nowhere near as deep as in the plain she had crossed prior to entering the Silverpines, the snow in the forest was thick and difficult to tread through without them. The blue light had grown in intensity over the last few minutes - so much so that Silvia could see the trees, branches, needles and snowy ground as clear as day, albeit cast in a disquieting cerulean tinge. She vaguely wondered where - and what - the light was coming from. It had initially appeared to originate in the direction Erik had gone but now it seemed to be everywhere. It was as though the forest itself had been engulfed by some strange, nebulous blue aura. All she h

The Last Recruit - Chapter 7
The clouds thinned somewhat by the afternoon of the second day. Gaps of clear blue sky appeared as the northern sun burned through the grey haze. The snow from the night before was still settling. Every so often a lump of white powder would tumble to the ground from a tree bough. It was quiet - not even the twill of a songbird or rap of a woodpecker graced the air.
Silvia herself hadn't uttered a word since they broke camp. She trudged behind the Nessian soldiers in sullen silence. Though already tired, she found herself growing strangely numb to fatigue - as though she could keep on walking until she dropped dead. The cold, while bad, was tolerable, particularly since there was no wind. Occasionally she would glance around to take in her surroundings, if only to alleviate the tedium of the journey. The forest stretched on as far as she could see - a shadowy expanse of trunks, needles, shrubs and snow. It was different from the woods around her village. The trees were dense and ancient

2016 Story Request #3 - Aftermath, Part 1
Ryan wiped the perspiration from his forehead. He reached over for one of the rags hanging on the nearby rack, squirted a dab of orange hand cleaner on his palm and turned the water on. As he washed the grime from his calloused hands he glanced up at the mirror hanging above the rusty metal sink. To his satisfaction there was still no sign of a scar along his stubbly neck. He splashed some water on his face, running his fingers through his crew-cut brown hair and along his craggy yet handsome face. Finished, he scanned the interior of the shop for his boss. Seeing no sign of Albert, Ryan shut off the water, tossed the rag into the laundry and called one his fellow mechanics.
"Hey, Camilo?" he yelled over the whirr of a power screwdriver.
A dark-haired Latino looked down from the raised undercarriage.
"Yeah?" he replied.
"Is Albert around? He in his office or out to lunch or something?"
"Dunno, man. Last I saw he was talking with that customer about ordering those fan belts."
"Alright,

Mythanthrope, Wanda's Story, Part 3
It was well past seven o'clock. Wanda stared glumly down at the half-eaten pizza sitting on the kitchen table. The pie had cooled to room temperature, acquiring the consistency (and taste) of candle wax. An open history textbook and laptop lay next to it. Wanda glanced out the window. Beyond her sad, pudgy reflection she could make out not-so-distant lights of neighboring houses. Wanda turned back to the kitchen and eyed the empty chair on the opposite end of the table. She sighed and, after a moment's consideration, reached into her pocket and retrieved her cell phone. Just as she was about to dial she made out the muffled rumble of a garage door opening.
"Finally," she murmured, tucking her phone back into her pants.
A minute later a middle-aged brunette stepped into the kitchen.
"Hi Samantha, I'm home!" said the woman in a tired yet happy voice.
"Hi mom," said Wanda unenthusiastically.
Wanda's mother was overweight, no question about it, but not exactly fat. The curves were in the r

As promised, here's a new story set in, yes, the Lycanthrope Club universe - Old Wounds. I plan on going in a different direction with this one.

Wish me luck, because tomorrow I'm taking a rather risky move career-wise.

As it says in the description of the first chapter, it occurs between books II and III, or between The Lycanthrope Club and Crescent Shadow.

I liked your lycan series! It's a real ride to see how the series develops. Especially the character development from Melinda and the other lycan girls. Cool twist near the end of your series, cannot wait for the next installment to the story:D (Big Grin)

Thanks! Delays, I'm afraid, have once again hindered the next chapter. I would have posted a journal update but it's the same old story - real life crap, low creativity, low energy, mea culpa, mea culpa etc. At this point It'll be done when it's done.
