Reflections, part 2

“What’s the matter?” asked Mercedes, Rocío’s mom. Her hair was dyed black, but her roots were flaxen blonde. She was already seated at the kitchen table by the time I trudged out of the bedroom. “You look tired. Didn’t you get any sleep?”

I shrugged as I entered the kitchen. “I’ve just been having weird dreams.”

“She tosses and turns and mumbles in her sleep every night, Ma,” Rocío revealed, throwing me under the bus. I threw her a scowl, which she ignored.

Who’s Who: Aspen of the St. Lawrence Frolick

He works part-time as a barista, and he’s become very popular on mortal social media for his handsome hipster looks. The Thanks A Latte Café, where he works, is a hangout chain for non-humans in the mortal realm, but humans do tend to wander in so glamours are required.

Happy Birthday Noah!

Noah’s a black gay man in a group where the leadership is primarily women. His younger brother admires his ability to keep a level head while dealing with all the craziness, and the healer has really blossomed since Scarlett was found. The two of them are best friends, sharing just about everything. They even shared a home before more members were recruited and living arrangements had to be rearranged.

Reflections, part 1

It was square, with no partitions or bracings. The window hovered ahead without the help of a wall, and a dim light spilled through the glass, a dusty bone-white glow that fell off the bottom of the window like a waterfall at the edge of the world. I had expected the light to stretch on for eternity, but the emptiness swallowed the rays. Captured them.

Snuffed them out.

Lizzie’s Diary – Entry 16

A home for the unwanted, for even they are loved

Happy Birthday Shouta 翔太!

Shouta was not the first Martian mentioned in the series, but they were the first to appear. I don’t believe will see them again in Saturn Rising, but they will have their time in a future TCoLD series.

Happy Birthday Perish!

He’s often underestimated as a weakling or not much of a threat as the result of his height, when in reality he’s one of the deadliest members of the entire tribe. Perish is skilled in various martial arts and lethal fighting styles. He comes off as impulsive and reckless, when he’s actually very calculating.

Happy Birthday Vanish!

Vanish is quiet, sneaks up on others easily, though he doesn’t mean to startle anyone. Love suspects that he and Thunder are in a relationship, but have not shared her suspicions with anyone for fear of outing them. Fear has come to the same conclusion.

Happy Birthday Leer!

He’s a sweetheart, considerate, picks up signals easily, and communicates his points efficiently. His ability makes him an excellent lookout and marksman, and it also means he can’t be pranked by Chase or the kids from Wave Three.
