  1. Chapter 9 Wake-up Call

    And let the groveling begin Great chapter Gary
  2. A Moonlit Romp

    Wonderful as always. A few questions answered, still more to go. I wouldn't want to be Nephthys when Anubis finds her
  3. Chapter 1

    Great scene Kitt I could alomst feel Carman's panic myself as I read it.
  4. Chapter 7.3

    I'm cautiously optimistic about the bears they are heading for. At the moment they seem to have thrown the hunters off their trail, here's hoping Thanks for reading and commenting.
  5. Chapter 7.3

    I think they will find some more allies soon. But, as for safety? I think that will be longer in coming. This story is unfolding as i write it so i'm learning as you all do. As for the bad vamp? Well, Kitryn may be able to track him down at some point. Who knows maybe he has something to do with things? We'll find out together Thanks for reading and commenting
  6. New Members Welcome-Introduce Yourself!

    Hi and welcome to GA. There are a lot of people here who would be happy to help you. And I think Bob said it perfectly so I won't try to add to it. I'll just send greetings and a
  7. Chapter 7.3

    Hopefully, the bears will protect them and they can start getting some answers. At least may find some respite and maybe some new allies. Thanks for reading and commenting, Gary
  8. Chapter 7.3

    Maybe the bears will be able to give them a chance to rest and regroup. Then they can make more permanent plans. Thanks for reading and commenting
  9. Chapter 7.3

    I think they are going to have to find some allies first and then find out how the hunters are finding them and why the hunters are so intent on getting them in particular. Thanks for reading and commenting
  10. Chapter 7.3

    “When can we go home?” “I want to go back to grandma’s house.” “I’m tired.” The kits had been wonderful, but the constant traveling was wearing on all of them and the kits most of all. Simon felt Kitryn tense and placed a hand on his shoulder. “Deep breath,” he muttered and received a tight smile. Meg had moved to walk with the kits and she could be heard explaining once again why they couldn’t return to her house. Simon looked at the sky. “We need to find shelter soon.” Kitryn nodded and they started checking the sides of the path looking for anything that may indicate a way to head. They had decided early on to only travel at night. Not only would it be more convenient than Kitryn having to carry Simon, it also made it harder for the hunters to track them. Meg had used strong smelling flowers to cover their scent and Kitryn used branches as brooms to dust away their tracks. They found shelter and it wasn’t long before Simon felt the now familiar lethargy falling over him. “We need to make a better plan," he managed to say to Kitryn before he fell into unconsciousness. *** Kitryn was standing watch when he heard footsteps approaching. He turned to see Simon and grinned. “Awake again,” he called softly by way of greeting. Simon came up beside him. “Yep, so starts another night in the life of the differently alive.” Kitryn shook his head. It had taken a long while for he and Meg to convince Simon he wasn’t an undead thing now. Vampires were a funny species. The most common perception was that a vampire drained all the blood from a human and replaced it with their own. Well, that was impossible. The vampire would have to drain themselves entirely to replace their intended turnee’s blood. Thus draining themselves and therefore killing themselves. No, all a vampire did was drain their intended until they were unconscious and then give them the equivalent of a cupful of vampire blood. Then it was just a case of waiting and seeing if the turning took. The new vampire would wake up hungry and confused. The sire would then be responsible for their new child until the young one had full control. If Kitryn ever found out who had turned Simon and left him, the vampire would regret his actions. “So,” Simon said as he sat on the ground near Kitryn’s watch post. “Any ideas on a plan? We can’t just keep running with no direction in mind.” Kitryn looked up at the stars. “Meg reminded me of a few nearby shifter groups. There’s a wolf pack about two nights journey to the north and there’s a bear den three night’s journey to the southwest.” “Which do you think would be the more welcoming?” “Well, the wolves are usually a rather standoffish group. And some packs have a kill first, ask questions—such as ‘Who are you?’ and ‘Why are you here?’—later. The bears are more welcoming but they are also further away and that increases our chances of getting caught.” Simon seemed to be thinking. “Who is our best defense against the hunters if we reach them?” “The bears,” Kitryn instantly replied. “The bear's den is in a cave and the hunters can’t approach without being seen and the bears can pick them off before they get anywhere near us or the kits.” “Then I think the bears are our best bet. If you're able to take the extra work, we can keep moving part of the day as well and you can carry me. But only if it doesn’t put any of us in danger.” Kitryn nodded. “We’ll rest here for tonight and start out at noon tomorrow. I’ll carry you until you wake up and then we can stop for food and rest before carrying on through the night. That way we’ll have three adults to the three kits and we can carry them if or when they get tired.” Kitryn grinned as Simon nodded and let his head fall against Kitryn’s leg. I felt good to have a plan, that meant they wouldn’t be moving aimlessly anymore and, in a few days, they would hopefully have some protection. Kitryn allowed himself to slide down the tree he was watching from until he and Simon were leaning on each other. Simon’s vamp senses would warn them if anyone tried approaching. Meanwhile, it was good to just relax and look at the stars.
  11. Chapter 8 Battle Fatigue

    I'm going to go against the crowd. I feel sorry for Drake. I can see where his thinking and feelings are getting muddled together. add into that his increasing feelings for Jimmy (with Richard there to reinforce why he shouldn't trust the feelings) it's a problem waiting to blow up. Every time it seems he may have got himself onto an even kilter something comes along to knock him off again. I think Jimmy will just have to be patient and keep showing Drake though actions rather than words what he can offer that Richard couldn't. Another great chapter, Gary
  12. The Night and the Moon

    Mysteries within mysteries. A Great chapter
  13. The Human, the Werewolf, and the Vampire

    Nolan is so sweet Looking forward to the next chapter
  14. You will be very missed moggy. 

     

    R.I.P my friend:hug: 

  15. Rest In Peace Moggy

    Thank you for finding out and posting. moggy was a great and supportive friend to me and I will miss her very much, as I'm sure many others will. Her poetry spoke to many and her friendship was given freely to all. R.I.P my friend, I hope you have found the peace you deserve.
  16. Chapter 7.2

    I'm sure everything will work out in the end. It always does. Kitryn has kept them all alive and free this long and he has Simon and Meg to help now as well. Hopefully, they will find a forever home soon. But, I think they will have a few more hoops to jump through before that can happen. Hopefully, they can find a way to either evade the hunters or deal with them soon. From memory they don't know about Simon yet, however, they did nearly find them at the cave so they may know someone else is with them. I'm guessing the length??? Sometimes I dislike it too but if i didn't have the incentive to join my fellows doing this as many weeks as I can, it could take months just to write one chapter in between my other writing off-site and my home life. Hopefully, i can find time once school is back to add an occasional bonus chapter here and there. I think the kits' don't really understand everything that's happening (except Fran). At the moment it is an adventure for them. That may change any time though and then i think the adults are in for a lot of hard questions. A car would be an inconvenience. If they needed to shift and run through the trees to lose the hunters they couldn't do that in a car. Also, they left with only the things they could carry to escape the attack on their group to start with. Thank you all for all your wonderful comments and for continuing to read Kitryn's and Simon's tale
  17. Chapter 7.1

    Of course, she's smart She was the only girl for a while, someone had to keep all those boys in line. In all seriousness, she has had to be smart and has had to grow up far too quickly. Thank you for reading and commenting
  18. I'll give it a try please @Cia

  20. Guarding the Line

    We all want to make our parents–or someone close to us–proud. Brady is no different. I have heard so many bad coming out stories that I can understand young people being very scared of telling their friends and family that they are having feelings for someone of the same sex. This is a short snapshot into the mind of one such teen and the turmoil it creates inside him.
  21. Finding the Line

    I really felt for Ryan in this story. If I hadn’t already read the previous story from Brady’s POV I would have been very angry with Brady. Although I would have taken into consideration that he was a confused young man as well I would also have been annoyed to see another young man’s feelings being played with. I know there are people out there that aren’t sure about who they fancy or why. But, that does not give anyone leave to mess with someone else’s feelings, paying attention to them one moment and pulling away from them the next. This story is short, to the point, and will leave you wanting more. A very good addition to The Line series and I’m looking forward to what happens next with this couple.
  22. Exhaling the Past

    This short story is basically all one scene But, that one scene hits quite a punch to the reader. In one scene we get to know that the Colt has regrets from his past and he is hoping to not make what he sees as the same mistake again. We find out that Ryan is in a position no one would want to see a child in. and lastly, we see the war going on with Colt, between his job and his conscience. I would like to hope that any decent person would make the same choice as Colt does.
  23. Prying Ears

    This short made me laugh at the end. Colt shouldn't be eavesdropping outside Ryan's room. Of course, he takes what he hears completely the wrong way and ends up looking rather stupid. A funny short to cheer you up on a dreary day.
  24. Santa's Little Helper

    **Tissue Warning** This story had my heart breaking. All the kids sitting on Santa’s knee asking for expensive toys, then along comes Chase. All he wants for Christmas is a Car…for his Dad. When asked why his answer will have any reader in tears. As his story emerges the reader is sucked into a tale of loss and heartache. I loved Deans character and how he manages the situation with care and compassion. And of course, I am hoping there is healing and love in their future.
