  1. Continuation of Blind Challenge:

    “So you know about us,” the man said, pulling up a chair opposite of Leteh.

    The demon nodded, watching as the man lowered himself into the chair awkwardly.

    “You can call me Del Cross.” He held out his hand which Leteh ignored. “I know about you.”

    “Yes, everyone knows about me and my … sordid history.”

    Del chuckled darkly.

    “Where’s your witch now, eh?”

    Time seemed to stand still as the tavern keeper’s chuckled died and Leteh’s red eyes blazed in anger. Del knew his mistake, and shrank back away from the demon’s rage.

    “Tell me what you know. Now.”


  2. Continuation of blind challenge

    When They Met

    Whenever he stared into her eyes time seemed to stand still.

    It had been three months since he’d come south to Atlanta but the fighting was still going on. Private Haygood hadn’t planned on falling in love, but hey. Plans.

    They’d met in a bar brawl in a shanty set up in Piedmont Park. Everyone was drunk and he could tell the attraction was mutual. He bent over and kissed her, catching her off guard. That’s what started it. She’d kicked his ass but good.

    She’d straddled him on the ground, boot knife at his throat, and kissed him back.
