Edge of Thorns 4 - Pt 5Part 5
Let's see what happens if I guess something completely different.
The writer knew the answer, but on a whim, decided to see what would happen if he guessed wrong. "I don't know," he said with a laugh and a shrug, quickly running some ideas through his head. The brief mention of Latin made him grab for a word from his vocabulary in that. "Canis? A sneaky way of calling yourselves bitches without the moral guardians getting up in arms?"
Enya immediately burst in giggles, clapping her hands enthusiastically. "On the nose! Susan came up with it, though she'd initially suggested the plural Canes, for that very reason. We went with the singular Canis because we realized people would probably read it as canes and not can-es. Canis sounds more like a band name anyway."
Nathan started, surprised and confused. The name of her band had changed, and not only that, of all the names he could have guessed, he actually selected the right one. His shock must've read c

I need to at least be honest about Gula, and maybe I should tell them I know about Alton too. But since they're worried about how I'll handle things, I think I'll play ignorant otherwise.
Nathan took a deep breath and nodded. "At least, I think I do," he said first. "Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think she's one of the Seven Deadly Sins, specifically Gluttony."
Enya snorted and laughed, shaking her head, though her brother smiled and nodded.
"Don't know how you figured that one out, but you're on the nose. We'd only gotten so far as figuring out she was the manifestation of a Sin."
"He knows Latin, doofus," his twin reminded him with a nudge. "I bet her name gives it away."
Nathan couldn't help but chuckle a bit. "Well, it is the Latin word for appetite."
"We should have thought to look that up," Scott mumbled, starting to laugh too. "Anyway, we haven't quite finished assessing her threat level yet, but that does help with our notes."
It was Enya's turn t

Episode 4: Monster
It was agreed that it was too late to go to the warehouse that night, and everyone felt a good night's rest was needed before they confronted whatever waited for them there. It was early the next morning, shortly after sunrise, when there was a loud banging on the door to the bar downstairs. Snow bolted upright in her cot, and very nearly screamed when she was startled by the large cheetah curled up at her feet, purring in his sleep. It took a moment for her waking mind to remember it was Guy, but she still held her breath as she carefully slid her feet out from under the large cat. The cheetah stirred, stretching out and
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
