Years have passed, centuries even. Morrigan had an annual custom to come and visit the old willow. There was no trace of Phileph’s body under it, as if she had never put the historian there. Only Morrigan, the grass and the creatures that lived in it knew about the corpse that had decayed there. The Basic kept a watch over the tree, making sure that no human ever came across the body, and disturbed Richard’s slumber by calling the authorities, other people, media representatives, and of those who made a living out of investigating others’ business.

Jenny had dreams full of fears and nightmarish images. At one moment, she suddenly sat in her bed, looking at her room in the dark, but not recognizing it. She had an impression that she was in a long hallway. The place seemed familiar, but Jenny felt lost and frightened. She wanted out, she wanted to breathe fresh air, but the exit was nowhere to be seen. As if in a trance, she got out of the bed and started wandering the room, looking for a way out. But everything around her was covered with darkness. She noticed a window, below the curtains and rushed to pull them. Jenny pulled the curtains, and screamed in pain, and the sunlight hit her through the window. She fell on the floor, and searched for the nearest shadow to hide. Managing to roll to the wall next to the window, she found a place of safety in the dark. The blast of light woke her up. She felt her skin was burnt, but the pain was vanishing quickly. Jenny looked around again and realized where she was. She decided to use her speed, grabbed the end of the curtain, and quickly ran to the other side of the window, blocking the sunlight from the room once more. Jenny noticed that she had been alone all along only when Nexus appeared at the door. He saw the fading scars on her face and in just a blink stood before her to make sure that she was alright.

Races

The morning was coated in fog, humid and coldish. Autumn was changing into its other suit, the one soaked with raindrops. However, the excitement could be sensed in the entire town. It was the day of the race.

People flooded towards the stadium in lines and groups which were reminiscent of grape clusters thrown all across the streets. It was the event of the month, the pride and honour reflected on townspeople’s faces. Continue reading

Let’s Talk about Steven

This time I want to write about my appreciation about a cartoon show that has been going strong for a while now. It’s Steven Universe. Currently, it’s in its 5th season and it’s only getting better. And I’m writing about it because it so good and I think it deserves a lot attention, everyone should watch it.

Sure, it’s a cartoon, and therefore it’s primarily aimed at younger audience, but it has a captivating essence that draws everyone who starts watching it, children, young adults, and adults. The show also gives the viewer some of the best concepts of the genres included. Continue reading

A Mildly Important Announcement

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Almost two years after I started this blog, I must say it has brought me great opportunity to relieve myself of any struggles I might have had on any basis. And I mean this with all of sincerity. There have been happy times and sad ones, but the space that I gave myself here was always ready to take any thoughts or feelings that I had at a particular moment. It was there to take me from some dark places to better ones. It started as a vent to exhaust the tension, but ultimately it became a corner with a shelf on which I could place my ideas, stories, attitudes, and impressions. It is also nice to see that it was welcomed by approval and even sometimes praise from others in this community.

Therefore, I have decided to make the next step. This is an announcement that I am planning on officially starting to swim in more specific waters than those generic ones. In the following weeks, I hope to get a custom domain name for Where the Writer Is. So, it is an important announcement because wings are taking a flight. It is, however, a mildly important announcement, as it concerns my own journey, and it does not really affect anyone else that much.

Nevertheless, I hope this will open new doors, for me, for Where the Writer Is, for you and your content, and for the rest. Write you and read you soon! Cheers!

Although Richard protested against leaving him alone in a city he was not familiar with, Constance had to remove herself from him. She assured him, that even if Nexus was in Istanbul already, he would not attack him, because he needed the information about the stake’s location. Dead historian would be no advantage in the negotiations with Morrigan. She wanted to see her home once more. She was too dependent of it. But, she was fast and she could return to Istanbul in a day’s time. Continue reading

It is glowing in the night, reaching over the river, and two banks it connects sometimes seem far away. The bridge, the river, what are those? Perhaps they are strands between two worlds, for spirits to sail under them on boats rocked by fast, dark waters framed by two slopes of rock, dirt and sand. Continue reading

Late Night Questions

As I looked at the clock and realized midnight had just escaped and heat made the stars dim, questions I did not expect started stretching my thoughts thin. However, enough of me attempting to be a poet, these doubts kept growing and needed to be addressed. In true fashion of questions that appear only late at night, these were not related to the situation, not important for the task I had, and they continued to spring out just to torment me.

Plain Is Pain

If melancholy was a place, it would be a plain. It is long and wide. The vastness, where blue from the sky melts into green from the fields in one, thin line of the horizon is overwhelming, consuming. Continue reading
