Serena was the best bounty hunter in the county. Part of it was her PI license, part of it was her friendly relationship with the police force, and part of it… well that was what she would describe aloud as her instinct. And it was that instinct that had led Serena to this particular conclusion for this particular case.
Prin glared down at the strange man under her blade. His shocking violet eyes blown wide as he stared up at her. “What did you do with Jim?” she snarled “He’s checking his traps” the man barely whispered. “What do you want? Why are you here? Did you come after me?” Prin’s heart pounded in … Continue reading Pride Collection: The Rogue – short story
Andor brushed down his lightweight armour, trying to remove all the mud, leaves, twigs, and general muck that had made its way into every crevice and crack. Finally he just yanked it off over his head. Maybe his ex had been right about using solid plates of armour. He clambered out of the ditch he … Continue reading Pride Collection: The Mage – short story
Jim looked through his coin pouch, enough for either a bed or food but definitely not both.
