Metallic Matters Chapter 2Zoey trudged into the apartment lobby, her makeup running down her face and quite present on her knees, hoping the receptionist wasn't paying attention. She just wanted to get to her bed upstairs, she didn't want to see anyone at all right now. Luckily, the lady at the run-down front desk was filing her long nails, smacking her gum loudly, rather than pay attention to who came in the front door.
The shaking teen trudged up the grimy stairwell, not feeling like riding the beaten-up elevator, trying to figure out just what had happened while holding back the rest of the shock from today's encounter.
Soon, she walked through the door that lead to the hall of apartments including hers. She shuffled past each door, numbers on each one, some rusted while others were clean. Her green eyes on the red carpeted floor, until she stopped in front of the door that lead to her apartment.

Metallic Matters Chapter 1 (one-shot) I felt as though I was flying above the city streets...like I was suspended mid sky-dive. Below me...I heard a black truck screech around the curb, a smaller, sleeker yellow car zipping close behind it....were.... they following that black muscle car?
They weren't just following it.
They were shooting it.
“No! Stop shooting, you idiots! Turn around! It's a trap! Listen to me, please!” I yelled, feeling a painful fist of fear stab my stomach like a frenzied swordsman, trapped in some cage.

Masks of Venettia (TEASER) Do you believe in magic? Do tales of Royalty, mages, and assassins make your heart pound in anticipation, as you hold on tight to every word that’s spun? Then I will spin my tale, but be wary, for I must first set the stage. The stage, who’s boards are stained with the blood of many who came before, a deep curse without end swirls within the whorls in the grain.
This is the tale, of Venettia, a country not unlike one you may know, but thick with sorcery and bloodshed. You might call it Italy, but you couldn’t be further. Venettia is a whole new land, across the vast reaches of Space and his mistress Time, far from the touch of your world’s inventions.
The lands of Venettia are ruled by the noblemen guild, known far and wide as The Gilded. The Gilded oft play in the deadly game of nobility, hiring assassins from one of rivaling clans.
One of the clans is the vicious Red-hand from Russion, who have arrived to Venettia in search of payments for their services.
