Swish, swish, swish. Little Russell Jr. watched his fist as he swung it through the H20 environment that both confined him and kept him safe. He especially liked it when his fist would bounce off the soft surroundings of his bubble. The rebound was exhilarating, as it was unexpected. He wondered how long he would … Continue reading 46.

The savage with his naked sword took a step closer to her. Martha fought the temptaion to flinch and drew herself straighter. She was sick of the role of damsel in distress. Argent had a good heart, but really he was still just a boy and didn’t have what it took to stand up to … Continue reading 26d (Argentum’s Song – PG)
I got my love of literature from my Mom. Between my birth and when my sister started elementary school, she was a full time homemaker and most days as kids that involved (among many other things) her reading to us. She introduced me to Anne of Green Gables, Aslan, The Little Engine that Could and … Continue reading The last page.
They walked through some juniper and she caught the whiff of a rotting carcass and saw her soiled apron flapping gently in the breeze under her pile of forage. “This is where I was ambushed.” She walked with renewed energy, needing hardly any help from Argent at all. She had only been along this path … Continue reading 26c (Argentum’s Song – PG)

Where do you think you are going?” Martha spun to … Continue reading 26b (Argentum’s Song – PG)
The further along in the pregnancy that we are getting, the more real it is becoming that our son will likely be born alive. Every day that he gives me high fives through Alex's tummy, every day that I pray for him to grow in stature and wisdom and favour with God and man, and … Continue reading 44. This is a thing that’s actually happening.
Chapter Twenty Six Martha fought back another coughing attack as her lungs laboured to provide her with enough air. They had a lower capacity ever since the Argentum had burned the virus out of her and she really hoped they weren’t permanently scarred. The muzzle on her mouth certainly didn’t make breathing any easier. She … Continue reading 26a (Argentum’s Song – PG)
My father has taught me a lot of things over the years. I remember - through a series of "why" questions starting with "why does water come out of the tap?" - him explaining the water cycle to my sister and I when we were in preschool 😛 He also taught us about environmental issues … Continue reading If you’re not falling …
“I’ll split it with you. I only need five weight to free my parents, four more if I survive and any of Walt’s family try to lay claim to my contract. I only saw it once, but I heard them say there was at least twenty four weight raw ore in the chest. I’ll give … Continue reading 25c (Argentum’s Song – PG)
