Wishful Thinking.

Connor throws his coin into the fountain.

He’s made his wish.

His little brother George pokes him with the plastic dinosaur, again.

Connor snatches the toy, holding it over the edge.

 Georges’ bottom lip quivers.

The dinosaur drops with a splash and then sinks.

 George leans over the rough stone.

With a little nudge, he tips.

 His cry is muffled by the water.

A hand on his back, pushing down.

‘Connor!’

His mother pulls George out of the water.

‘What the hell happened?’

‘He fell in.’

Conner’s parent’s glance at each other, then him.

They’re nervous.

They should be.

Unconventional

I finished up in the office and headed out into the bar.

                “Your usual Alicia?” Matt asked and I nodded.

                “It’s busy tonight.”

                “Yeah, there’s a convention in town, brings in a lot of new blood.” Matt smirked, as he placed a full wine glass on a napkin in front of me.

                I took a sip, closing my eyes as I savoured the rich taste.

                “Delicious.”

                “It’s a new blend.” Matt pointed to a booth, where two handsome men sat.

                I walked over to them.

                  We talked, they drank.

                The blond patted the space in between them, “We don’t bite.”

                “That’s a shame…because I do.” My fangs sunk into his neck.

Free Fall.

27th July 3016

Water levels rose.

Land disappeared.

Humans say it was God, some blame pollution.

Personally, I don’t see why it matters, the result is still the same.

Small camps now litter the mountains.

We protect them.

The human children gather, eyes wide, as we leap off the edge of the cliff.

Alana flies past me, “we’ll find her, Hermione.”

We soar over the new lakes.

“Over there!” Charlie points below.

My little sister’s trapped on a ledge, the beast’s claws swiping at her.

“Izzy!”

She falls.

My heart stops.

Her wings broken!

I sweep down, catching her mid- air.

“You caught me.”

“I’ll always catch you when you fall.”

Under the Sea.

The boat bobs up and down on the gentle waves.

I blink against the bright sunlight.

The shoreline barely visible.

“Fancy a swim?”

“I can’t…”

He lifts me in his strong tanned arms.

I squeal as he jumps.

“No!”

The salt water coats my skin, my body tingling.

It’s happening.

I can’t stop it.

My legs are replaced by shimmering coral scales.

I have to get away!

“Sophie?”

“You’re…” his turquoise tail twitches, “like me.”

He grins.

“We’re the last of our kind.”

“We don’t have to be.” He winks at me and I chuckle.

“Well…if we must…” His mouth captures mine, swallowing my words.

Breakdown.

It started out slow.

A virus, they said.

Only affecting animals.

Don’t panic.

We weren’t prepared.

One bite.

That’s all it took.

We were sat in the queue of cars evacuating.

Then the screams started.

Trapped.

I blink back tears, as I fight against hands and nails that claw at me.

“Dad!”

His bloodshot eyes stare through me.

Teeth snapping.

He lunges.

“Saphire move!”

I freeze.

Blood drips down my forehead, ears ringing, eyes wide.

My brother lowers the gun.

“We need to go Saphire.”

“But dad?”

“He wasn’t dad anymore.”

“What happens now Tom?”

“We try to stay alive.”

Fight or Flight?

By Heidi Busby Brown

The moon shines down on the small town.

Humans flee, curtains twitch as we pass by.

The smell of magic taints the air, sweet and sickly.

I tug against the guard’s grip.

“You took the life of one of our own…”

“To save a human child…” I shout.

“Enough! Let the hunt begin!”

I run.

The streets are a maze, alley’s and dead ends.

They’re closing in on me.

I’m trapped.

A door creaks open.

Hands grab at me.

“Quiet!”

A room filled with humans.

“Tonight, we take back our town!” The man said, weapon raised, “will you help us?”

“Yes.”

 Cold – Hearted.

 

Intricate patterns of ice cover the windows, blocking my sight.

Haunted by memories.

Lucien’s warm smile, stolen kisses, his confession of love.

I waited for him…but he never came.

The screams of terror…so much death…

My kingdom was brought to its knees, in a single night.

I hear the key twist in the lock as I wipe away my tears.

“You made the right choice Princess. It would have been cruel indeed, for such beauty and power to be wiped from the realm.”

I shudder as his lips graze my cheek.

“I’ve just got back Lucas, this had better be important…”

“Lucien?” I gasp.

“Adrianna?”

Lucas smirks, “My fiancé, Adrianna…my little brother, Prince Lucien.”

Love Notes.

Nathaniel’s fingers glide over the keys as the music builds.

Our guests lose themselves in the notes and each other.

It’s what he does best.

A master of the ceremony, feeding off them as he plays.

A sea of flesh lies before me, their glistening bodies entwined.

Hands touching, stroking.

Hips thrusting, as they are swept away with the beat.

I lick my lips, savouring the taste.

Love, desire and lust and if I’m not mistaken, a hint of jealousy.

It’s a heady combination.

The sweet groans of satisfaction, drown out the final note.

“Delicious.”

“Full?”

“Yes…but there’s always room for dessert.”

Guardian.

A cold breeze tickles my face.

She’s back.

“He’s here.” Lisa whispers.

 I shiver.

I hear him shouting and things smashing.

I blink and rub my eyes as she points to my wardrobe.

“Hide.”

I climb in amongst my clothes.

Lisa presses a finger to her mouth and the doors close on me.

A scream.

Gun shots fired.

Footsteps.

My bedroom door creaks open.

I hold my breath, squeezing my eyes shut as tears run down my cheeks.

“Found her!” The policeman shouts.

Lisa stands in the corner of my room watching.

“Thank you.” I whisper.

Lisa nods and with a little wave, my big sister disappears.
