Do you sense anything else?’ asked Chergoa.

Like what?’ said Shenado.

I don’t know. Where is my brother? I can’t find him or Hector.

They probably just went to have a look around the city.

The more she stared at the rifts and the more she listened, the more Emiliana began to feel a knot growing in her chest. ‘Chergoa,’ she finally said.

What?’ the reaper said privately.

There’s something in the room with us.’

The reaper paused. ‘What do you mean?

I see something in here with us. I don’t think I’m hallucinating. You don’t sense anything?

No, I don’t. What does it look like?

It’s like... light is being bent. Distorted. They look like, just... weird lumps in empty space.

They? You see more than one?

I see four. And they’re moving. Chergoa, they’re moving like people move.

The reapers didn’t respond, and Emiliana didn’t turn around to look at them again. She kept her eyes forward, staring through her mask at each of the rifts before her, waiting.

Then Ramira walked into her vision, headed for the door. “I want to see,” she said.

Emiliana’s one clawless hand shot out and grabbed her little sister by the arm. Ramira jumped at her touch, and Emiliana pulled her closer, realizing she’d scared her. “Sorry,” she said. “Not just yet. Let’s stay here.”

Ramira seemed hesitant. “Why?”

Emiliana reached into the big front pocket of her gray hoodie. She felt for the compact firearm there and found it. She pulled it free, using Ramira’s body to help keep it concealed, and pushed it hilt-first against the little girl’s stomach. “Trust me,” said Emiliana, looking past her sister’s head. “Don’t make a fuss, or there will be trouble. Understand?” She felt Ramira take the weapon.

“...I understand.”


  1. I feel rude asking...
    What happened to the release speed? From when it was 30 to 40 per month. Only recently caught up and i've been wondering about that...

    George(Author) said that he's having a hard time thinking of what will happen next, in short he's having a writer's block.

  3. Dunno where you got that from. I've said multiple times that I know where the story is headed very far in advance.

    Sorry, about that.
    I remember you saying that back in April, when you decided to take a break.
    So I assume that you're still feeling that way up to now.

  5. Lotsa reasons, I suppose. Stuff just gets in the way, sometimes. That, and this is still mainly just a passion project for me. I make a little money off of ebook sales on Amazon, but still not nearly enough to live off of, so.

    That probably makes me sound greedy or whatever, but y'know, right now, I'm just doin' the best I can with what I've got. I'm still trying to get back to at least 30 pages a month, but we'll see. Sometimes shit doesn't work out the way you want it to.

  6. It's not the planning that I struggle. It's the actual writing of text. I'm just slow.

    Ah... I see.

  8. "Greedy"

    Hundreds of thousands of words of free story =/= greedy :)

  9. ASDF JKLSem. That should help :)

  10. I was actually quite interested in doing something like this myself... though I probably don't have the confidence to make it available to the public haha. How long roughly does it take you to write a page?

  11. No worries. You still have kept a decent pace, and much as we might whine, I think we'd all rather you take your time than burn yourself out trying to support yourself and keep your old pace.

  12. I have heard it said that you should find what you love and then finds way to make a living off of it. Do correct me if I'm wrong but you seem to love writing . If so then there is no reason for you wanting to make a living off of it

  13. As a side note the phone version of disq seems to hate me

  14. I'm assuming you meant "there is no reason for you NOT wanting to make a living off of it"?
