Late Interactions

She finally succeeds in getting her mother’s soul behind the mirror. Twilight is setting in, just as it was …. all those years ago. The haze is almost the same …as it was then. It refuses to clear off, even in broad daylight. The temperature in the room drops and there’s a stench like that … More Late Interactions

Silence

Streets are silent. Sounds inside her get unbearable. It takes a lot of strength to pretend everything is fine, when it’s not. She feels the ground beneath and thanks the skies – she is still standing on her own two feet. She just needs courage to walk out and run – breathing in the silence, … More Silence

Plots

“I thought the plan was foolproof, least of all did I expect my assistant to catch me,” he’s not as perturbed by the prison sentence, as with the idea of being caught by a junior. “It was just a single thought …if it’s you, there has to be a method to the madness.” “You deciphered … More Plots
