Unwilling to Be Yours

It’s QueerBlogWed…actually it’s the early hours of Wednesday where I’m at.

NaNoWriMo has begun. The month of November during which I’ve made a commitment to try to revise 50 thousand words of Stealing Myself From Shadows.

All these things are on my mind as I pick Peter and everyone up at the Navel, continuing to play out the terrifying scene which is happening in Unwilling to Be Yours, my second prelude to Stealing Myself From Shadows.

Reality is about to get shaken up.


Those pitiless streaks of white was stronger than any other brushstroke. Each burned brightly in beams of sunlight, coming through the window. Reality tried to temper the magic, but the spell was too strong.

The humming was getting louder. It was almost like a song and an intimate whisper at the same time.

Christopher reached out a hand, almost longingly, towards a bunch of gleaming white cracks. No, branches. No, fingers. These fingers were part of a skeletal hand. This hand was reaching out for Christopher’s.

“No!” Gabrielle’s denial was like thunder. Her power rose, hissing at the cracks in defiance, as she raised her hands. “You won’t take my son!”

A soft laugh, one voice, yet many voices filled the air. It was the wind, the breeze, and laughter all at the same time.

“He’s not truly your son, ‘Brie.”

Gabrielle flinched, as if she’d been struck. I could feel her power wavering, its planned strike losing energy.

    1. Hey! Thanks for visiting this Cauldron! (I call this one the Cauldron and my blogspot.com one the Forbidden Cauldron. If Facebook is going to continue to block me, I might as well get some marketing mileage out of it. :))

      Thank you! I’ve just set up a sprint at https://nanowrimo.org/gws/pp8j9rMy7NCIbucbxL1k-w .
      It’ll be on Wednesday; 10 am PST/1 pm EST. You’re more than welcome to join David Cheater and I, if you’d like. (I just need to figure out how to run it through NaNo and not Facebook. :))
