"So you know what else is illegal?" Mystery Man sauntered up the strolling driveway. It snaked its way half a mile up a hill between yards of evenly-trimmed, forest green grass. About halfway up, the driveway split and wrapped up the other side of the hill, merging again at the enormous front doors of the pristine mansion. In the center of it all...

"You know what's weird?" Mystery Man asked, slumped back in the folds of a patched, green armchair with his arms dangling limply over the sides. His head was tilted to one side of his neck, as though too weak to keep it erect. Without a word or change in posture the black suit disappeared, melting into the pores of his skin. Beneath it he was...

Curse of the Undead King: Chapter Six

Mrrda's skull rolled away, bouncing off small rocks as it tumbled into the bushes. The tree behind where it had been splintered at the trunk. With no leg to stand on, it toppled over, laying across the road and reaching out in all directions with its needled arms. The beast who had thrown the punch whirled around and loped after the head. A...

Twisted branches climbed out from the window's center a hundredth of a second before they pushed forward, raining sheets of sparkling glass into the now-lit office. Mystery Man pulled his fingers off the round bulb, and tumbled against the wall on which the window once stood. He reached into his chest and pulled out a small handgun and a pair of...

About fifty thousand years ago.

"We shouldn't be here," Plt whispered. "We're supposed to stay in the caves or the cellars until we're called on. Mrrda, you know what happened to Poul..."

"Ssh," Mrrda breathed as he bent a large leaf aside for the young lady. "I want to show you something. Don't...

The shower ran for forty minutes before it fell cold. Not that it mattered to Lily. She wasn't in it. Getting wet would just get in the way. But her mom couldn't know what she was doing, that she was lighting up, and the rainfall made a great sound screen.

She snorted and furrowed her eyebrows. It just wasn't working. She slammed her...

Brrda the Savage: Chapter Five

Posted by Nathan DiYorio , in Fiction 18 June 2013 · 351 views

Night was long in the Secret Lands. Long, dark, and brutal. It came strong, and it came quick. The day creatures all but disappeared, knowing full well that the denizens of darkness would feast merrily upon their flesh. The birds flew up above the canopy, the rodents dove beneath loose hills. Small lizards crawled into the knotholes of the jungle's tall...

Warmth was all around. It hugged Brrda's shoulders, pinned tight over his body, wrapped its fingers around his neck. Sweat gathered on the inside of his thighs. As awareness came to him in a painful way the warmth became hotter. Hotter as his eyes opened and found only blinding light. Hotter as he turned and felt his bare flesh scrape against something...

"The full moon lights the city streets and casts a sparkling trail over the water's surface. The sound of sifting sand washes into my ears as the waves ebb down the beach. Salt in the air dries my nose, but the feeling isn't all bad. A few late gulls squawk about the box of french fries they've dug out of the beach. A small tussle breaks...

18 Nesting Street sat on the far end of Tender Meadows' new cul-de-sac. It was white and tall and exactly like every other house on the street, with the same painted mailbox, the same dark shutters, and the same black shingles. The panels on its sides were perfectly white, like a brand new coloring book.

The boy, some would call him a young man, seemed...
