March 31, 2019 alexandercollas 0
Chapter 7 Matt saw Devon several times over the next week and a half and each time found it hard to hide his excitement. Devon, of course, noticed and kept pushing, trying to find out what his friend was concealing from him. Why he always looked like he was on the verge of asking something. With frustration, Matt kept thinking, “Because I am.” He wanted to know if his friend was having the special dreams yet and, if so, how were they going. For the longest time, nothing seemed different, even to the point that Matt had started to think [...]

Chapter 6 Eluard leaned forward, placing his elbows on his knees. “The how is simple. You agree to take the journey, then we approach your friend and see what his feelings on the matter are.” “What? You’re just going to walk up to Devon and say, ’So want to move to a new world that has magic?’” The old man laughed as he took a drink from his goblet. “Not exactly, but close. We’ll approach him, in the same manner, we approached you, in his dreams. Once he’s shown interest, and we are certain he is, in fact, interested, we’ll [...]

Chapter 5 Matt wasn’t sure what he expected. His bedroom started to dim as if the sun was going down but continued until finally, he was standing in absolute blackness. For the first few seconds he remained calm but as time ticked on his resolve began to fail. What had he gotten himself into? Then, just as he was about to panic, off in the distance, he saw a dim light. The sunlight started to grow just as it had faded, but this time it was different somehow. It kept getting brighter, so bright in fact; he had to shield [...]

Chapter 4 When Matt opened his eyes the following morning, he was surprised to find the sun already coming high through the blinds. Glancing over he barked as he discovered it was just after noon.  Why’d he slept so late? He crawled out from under his covers shaking his head and cursing. He preferred to start his day more pre than post-sunrise if he could help it. He walked into the bathroom thinking about the errands he needed to run, removed his boxers, realized he needed to pee and then spend a couple of seconds deciding pre or post-shower. He [...]

Chapter 3 Matt found a pair of boxers on the floor and pulled them on as he crawled back in bed, his pillow shield still in place. The two sat quietly, Matt studying the strangely dressed old man, trying to decide how best to deal with an intruder. Not only was he in his house, but in his bedroom. How’d he get in? The odd-looking old man was wearing a dark green pair of tights -- yes, tights -- with a lighter green tunic secured by a belt from which hung a dozen leather bags. His hair was cropped short [...]

Chapter 2 That damn dream again. Every night for the last two weeks, the same dream. Matsugo sat up in his bed, rubbing his eyes. It was fucking strange. What did it mean? He pulled back the covers, shivering in the cold night air. The seasons had started their change; winter was knocking at the doors of Seattle. In the dark, he walked to the bathroom. He didn’t need light. Matt had lived in this house for almost as long as he’d been alive. The only time he hadn’t awoken in this bed, in this room for that matter, was [...]

Into the Wild: Chapter 1

October 20, 2018 alexandercollas 0
Into the Wild will be an ongoing online novel. I will try to publish new chapters every couple of weeks. I welcome any feedback and hope you enjoy it. Chapter 1 “They're still chasing us! Why won't those damn things give up?” Matt heard from behind him. “Are kobolds supposed to be such dicks? I thought they hated the sun,” he yelled back as a bright flash whizzed past just missing his head. Turning, he saw his friend, his travel companion, firing bolts from his fingers as fast as he could. They’d been through so much. Their adventures to dungeons, [...]
