White Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #1)

SEVEN

Jack followed the frame of the house to the first window. He felt around the casing; the window screen was tight and would not budge. “If we didn’t have to leave the jail so fast, I would’ve had time to find my pocket knife, my wallet, and my shoes,” he said to Sarah, who was standing next to him. “If we don’t find an unlocked window without a screen, I may need to use this nightstick to break the glass.” Continue reading “Chap. 7—White Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #1)”

After a quick squeal of devices powering off, an ominous silence filled Sarah’s bedroom. The only sound was the faint whir of her laptop’s fan and Jibber’s breathing. With the big baby of a dog still on her lap, Sarah dialed her sons again to warn them not to go outside, but there was no connection.

She leaned forward toward the pickup’s steering wheel as if doing so would bring the orb into better focus. Could it be a big balloon, one of those that car dealerships sometimes raised high into the sky to draw attention to their latest sale? Not likely, she thought, it was too high and too still. Maybe it was a bright blue star or a Halloween prank; it was that time of year after all. The highway curved.

The Choice

Lucifer’s Island: A Gothic Horror Soap Opera (Season 1)Ruby watched a tall man with dark hair and a black cape enter the room. The minute he stepped into the celebration, the drumming stopped and the vampires knelt and bowed their heads. This man—this creature—was obviously an important vampire.
