An Aird Heart Cast Adrift

She had thought their love would have kept them together. How wrong she had been. It was dark out, the water of the lake lapping at her feet. She stood in nothing but a silver gown, the hem damp and swirling within the water. Overhead, a thousand stars glimmered like a sea of diamonds that…

A Ghostly Cry

In the halls of a ruin, a ghostly wail can be heard.

Slurred Reputation

She was going to die. There was no ‘and, if or buts’ involved. She was, simply put, going to die a gruesome, unusual death. To make it worse – she didn’t even know why.
