Happy 4th Anniversary


Yes, I know, it’s not January and I’m super late on this post but, I thought I’d at least say it for the team. It’s been a struggle and uphill battle but, I come bearing good news. I’ve had a recent stint of writing and have completed four new episodes for Cold Blooded (YAY) and at this moment and working to finish more. This story will be back in action very soon.

Thank you everyone that has been waiting patiently (has it really been over a year? Yikes) I appreciate your support!

61: At the Center of it All – Pt. 2


“Come on,” Derrick said standing and taking Victoria by the hand.

“Where are we going?”

“To my place. You want answers and I think I know how to get them.”

“What is this?” Victoria asked, peering through the glass of the door in Derrick’s basement. “Derrick? We can’t…”

“We can and we will,” he said, pushing through the door and into the room. The man dangling from the wall looked up at the sound of footsteps approaching.

I am very sorry!

Hello Readers,


I am writing to first of all apologize to you all for the lack of updates, which, has been an issue as of late. Time is very short for me (even more these days) and there is simply not even of it to work on the things I love and want to do. I often times bite off more than I can chew, as is the case now. Juggling two active stories, real life and, recently, work, has become a real clock-eater. I have maybe 6 hours a day to actually write or get shots for Cold Blooded and/or After Midnight. Most often I find myself trying to decide between them which to work on for that day before my mind breaks me off into a whole different direction completely.

Too many occasions I listen to my inner-voice (She-Brain as I call her) who likes to boss me around and make me start things she KNOWS I don’t have the time for. As is the case with a couple of new start up stories that have been burning holes in the back of my mind (and ones I’ve actually started blogs for…curse you She-Brain). This month, I promised 10 chapters to the start of my yearly Halloween story, Outbreak, which I FULLY intend to publish. It’s just taking me a little more time to get them completed (I have 4 left to finish).

This is not me saying I am ending any of my stories without the intention of completing, no absolutely not. This is me saying my updates may be a little slower at times (what? slower than once a month? I know right?) But I am still going to be working on them and updating them as often as time allows. I know you’ve heard this quite a bit from me which is why I wanted to apologize. But I promise none of the stories you read will end without warning nor without an actual completion. I’m hoping in the coming weeks things will change but as of now I only wanted you all to be aware. 

I appreciate all of your support and understanding and thank you for sticking it out with me.


Sincerely,

~ Daijah

60: At the Center of it All – Pt. 1


“Going somewhere?”

“GEEZ!” Victoria turned with a start, placing a hand over her heart. “Derrick…you scared the crap out of me.”

“Sorry. Didn’t mean to.” He loomed in the doorway with the glass he’d fetched from the kitchen, watching as she finished dressing. A smile crept on his face as he listened to her rapid heartbeat and he set his drink on the nightstand.

“I’ll never get used to that,” she exhaled and looked back at the mirror and the absence of his reflection beside her. Touching a hand to her face, she puckered her lips and gently brushed her cheek. “Do you ever miss it?”

“Sometimes,” he answered, watching as she primped herself.

59: Where’d the Wendigo? – Pt. 3


Victoria…Victoria! What have you done?!

They’ll be after you now. You have to hide.

Don’t let them use you.

RUN!

59.2: Where’d the Wendigo? – Bonus

*Author’s note: Ooh what are you doing? Skipping to the good stuff huh? That’s fine, have your dessert first. But if you haven’t read the previous chapter, might I suggest you start there? (And if you have, ok, alright, please continue. I was just making sure you saw it! Gawsh!)*

“Victoria?” Derrick called as he entered his front door and turned the corner to his living room. Not seeing her in there, he continued further into his home. Finding her jeep parked in his front yard when he returned home was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. He dropped the canvas bag he carried near the kitchen counter and noticed the door leading to his basement was slightly ajar. A smile appeared on his lips as he approached it and the scent of the raspberry candles below touched his nose.

58: Where’d the Wendigo? – Pt. 2


“Sana et Mederi. Sana, sana, Mike, sana, sana,” Victoria chanted. It was going on the third hour she sat on the floor of Derrick’s attic conjuring potions, performing rituals and casting magic. Tirelessly, she’d researched information on cures and healing spells and though none ever seemed to work she was determined to keep trying. And Hades, her loyal and lovable companion, stood watch over his master while she went in and out of trance. Taking hold of the Athamé, she slit her palm open and let the drops of her blood pour into the mortar and crushed it between herbs with her pestle. “Exurge, exurge, exurge. Sana, sana. Látum lausa Draco Sanguinem. Sana, sana, sana,” Victoria continued.

57: Where’d the Wendigo? – Pt. 1


“You’re still staring at that?” Mike’s voiced interrupted Victoria’s thoughts but her eyes remained glued on the computer screen in front of her. She had been browsing through several gifting websites trying to find the perfect present for Derrick’s birthday. “Vik, I’m telling you guys aren’t so hung up over gifts as you might think. Sex, beer or some sort of tool and you’re golden.”

“That might work for you, Mike, but I’m not sure Derrick is the ‘tools’ sort of guy.”

“It’ll work, trust me. He’ll be what? 419?”

“418,” Victoria corrected with a sigh.
