  1. From my NaNo Story, tentatively titled The Heart of a Demon. My main character, Leteh, is a demon who had been imprisoned for 3 centuries in stone atop a chapel because he'd fallen in love with a witch, Selena. When he is released after being hit by a stray spell during a battle between demons and witches, times have changed and Leteh must navigate a world he doesn't recognize in order to understand the war that is beginning and just what is at stake.


    “Have a seat, demon,” said the tavern keeper.

    His eyes traveled over Leteh’s frame, reading his powers. It left Leteh feeling exposed and dirty. He heaved a sigh of disgust at the necessity for this meeting before squeezing his hulking frame into the chair.

    “Wine?” the man asked, holding up an ancient bottle.

    Leteh shook his head once, a grimace on his face.

    “A shame.” The tavern-keeper sneered. “I’m told the malolactic fermentation in this vintage is to die for.”

    “I’m sure,” Leteh grumbled, rolling his eyes at the man’s barely hidden innuendo. “Tell me what you know, Vidente.”

  2. Malolactic

    “'Malolactic',” he said again as he had been all morning. “'Mal-o-lactic'. Malo-lac-tic'.”

    “What is your fucking problem, Haygood?” Sergeant Delane asked. At five feet tall with jet black shorter than his, she turned him on but good.

    “It just sounds so, I dunno', sexy,” Haygood replied. “Heard it on a vid.”

    Sergeant Delane glanced at him, slung her M16 over her shoulder and, in passing, grabbed Haygood's crotch.

    “Just so long as you're thinking of me when you say it.”

    “Wilco that, Sergeant,” he replied. “Wilco that.”

    She smiled and kissed him.
