Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 14

The morning greeted them with brisk splendor. Leaves hinted at rich autumn hues while the sky adopted its wintry blue two months early. Though the air was chilly now, the sun promised to warm the day for the clouds were sparse and the breeze was light. Continue reading “Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 14”

Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 13

Thomas didn’t know where he was, other than he floated in a world of dreams. The only thing of him that existed here was his mind. He just drifted in the obscure miasma of colored darkness. A moment of panic swelled as he wondered if he was dead. This wasn’t the way it was supposed to be. Continue reading “Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 13”

Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 12

Fog ulcerated the ground around them. Forming a circle, it grasped towards the clouds as if to claim the heavens. Thomas sensed the fog shielded them from the rest of the world somehow. Still holding hands, they backed away from the sidewalk onto the grass where it was clear of the fog. The tittering filled the wall of white surrounding them. Rhae unsheathed Astrum Kotero.

Peccant’s movements weren’t rushed but they were swift and confident. Thomas hurried out the door to follow them, but lost Peccant in the waves of the brood. There have never been so many. Rhae pointed Lisha out up on the rooftops running. Not far behind Peccant pursued in slow, long strides. He drew a long sword from his walking stick, casting the sheath aside.

Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 8

He should be tired. How was he not tired? That’s how it usually worked for guys, wasn’t it? They have sex and pass out. Thomas didn’t know a woman who didn’t complain about the habit. Yet here he was, down in the basement buzzing with energy. As much as he wanted to stay next to Rhae, he couldn’t. He had to come down here if she was to get any rest. Continue reading “Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 8”

Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 5

Celeste offered to let Thomas and Rhae live at her place, but they declined. It was simply too much for him right now. There were too many questions and he had too much to think about. In way he felt as though his mother wanted to shelter him and let him forget it all if that’s what he wished. And wish it he did. A part of him did wish in the deepest core of his heart to run away and forget it all. Yet something called to him the way flames beckon moths. He had pieces of something that only partially fit and it would seem that his family was a part of it all for some reason. Continue reading “Surge of the Soul Eater – Episode 5”
