Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 37Part 37
There's no time to waste!
Nathan didn't wait for them to finish arguing. He was out the door before either of the angels noticed, rushing through the halls and out of the building. The police station wasn't far from the motel, and for once the writer was glad for all the walking he'd had to do, knowing exactly where he needed to go. Half running, he pulled out his cellphone and tried to call Scott back. When, after two attempts, it still went to voicemail, Nathan gave up and broke into a full run. He had to get there immediately!
When the Cavalier Motel came into sight, nothing appeared amiss, and the writer relaxed some: he'd been expecting something obviously supernatural running rampant, given the panic in Scott's voice. That moment of relief didn't stop him from hurrying forward, however, looking out for anything out of place. Since he didn't know what room Scott was in, it would be his only clue.
There was nothing of note on the first floor, and nothing he co

Episode 9: Journey Through the Dark
"Looks like someone left the lights on for us."
They stood in the doorway staring down into the long tunnel that lead into the Crystal Grottoes, electric lanterns lit up and lining the walls. Artemis shifted from one foot to the other. "So, who wants to take lead?"
"Well, you're already up front," Snow chirped with a smirk. "And the only Warden. And the oldest! Since you like to be in charge, why don't you lead us, Artie?"
The other wizard raised an eyebrow and adjusted his glasses. "Or maybe the one with the most to prove should lead us. Wouldn't you like to improve your standing in the White Council, Snow?"
"I'll stand in the middle," Alistair piped in before anyone could call him to take the front. He didn't want to be there in the first place and was perfectly alright surrounding himself with other targets.
"And don't look at me," Parker drawled. "I think I've got most of my senses back, but do we really want to test m

"Did we fall down the rabbit hole or something?"
Snow eyed the cat as suspiciously as the rest of them, not particularly comfortable with his sudden appearance. No one answered her question, but Guy (human and freshly dressed) was bold enough to get closer and sniff the air.
"You aren't a were," he said, wrinkling his nose. "Besides the fact that a were wouldn't be able to talk in animal form, you don't smell like one. Actually..." He sniffed again. "You smell a little like Snow."
"And what brings the fae to our encampment?" Artemis drawled, completely unimpressed. "Nothing for our benefit, I'm sure."
"Ooh, clever Warden aren't you?" the cat drawled right in return, grinning at him while his ears folded back. "I already told you I'm here to help."
"Help from the fae is rarely helpful, and even less frequently free."
"Is that so, Warden? Is that what your mother used to tell you before she tucked you snug into bed, after a warm glass of milk and a kiss
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
