• Solo Rae commented on the post, timeline 6 years ago

    We’ve been on the run for almost a week now.

    Its not easy – hiding from the patrol officers I’d always been told I could trust, running for cover whenever one came around, slipping out back doors and bribing shopkeepers. It’s a good thing we have plenty of credits to spare, but this is hardly the timeline I’d expected when he hired me.…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, dissolve 6 years ago

    “This is the end,” Melodi whispered. Watching as the last man fell in the field below, she knew it was over. And any hope of peace dissolved with that final death.

    “What did you expect?” Alec stood beside her, watching the scene unfolding before him with concern. “We never should have been here. This assignment wasn’t ours.”

    “So it should…[Read more]

    “…and that was what led to the Battle of Glave Point.”

    “Battle..?” Cassandra muttered from the back of the room, “I’d call that a massacre.”

    Everyone forgot that Cassandra had been there. She’d seen the horrors with her own eyes. She didn’t need someone to tell her what happened – she lived it.

    “Regardless, the ensuing deaths were what…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, enemies 6 years ago

    “Light ’em up,” She said, looking to him with fierce determination. There was no joy in her eyes; she took no pleasure from this. The games were over, the battles won. Except for this one. It was a heavy blow, and now they had to strike back.

    They couldn’t just lie down and turn away. Not this time. This time the message was clear. This time…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, bowling 6 years ago

    It all came down to this. The last moment. He had no idea that she would take this path, or that it would lead her here. But now that they were at this point, there was no turning back.

    She stared down the lane with wary eyes, tilting her head back and forth as though that would change the path of the ball. She watched with anxious excitement…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, planter 6 years ago

    The planter was the only thing left, the only thing that survived the fire. No one was sure how it remained untouched, though some suspected it was the mysterious blue roses that grew within it’s walls that had something to do with it.

    Perhaps Carl was more than just a gardener after all…

    Or perhaps it was the Phantom, though some would…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, checkmate 6 years, 1 month ago

    He stared across the table at his opponent, disbelief clear in his eyes. How had she done it? How could she? Did she not realize the implication of her move? The aggressive nature? What was she thinking?

    She stared back at him with a triumphant smile. She knew very well what she’d done, what it meant. She was the one who’d suggested the match,…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, tornado 6 years, 1 month ago

    She blew in like a tornado. No one knew she was coming, but then no one ever did. She would blow in whenever she felt like, stir things up, and then blow out again. She was a force of nature.

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, destined 6 years, 1 month ago

    She was destined to die, but no one knew. We had no idea. She would smile and pretend that everything was fine, let us believe in our happy little illusion that we would save the world and all go home and live happily ever after.

    But happy ever after is a myth. No one’s ever found it. Not truly. People still look for it, still wonder if maybe…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, winged 6 years, 2 months ago

    They came down from the sky in a ball of light. Cliche much? But true nonetheless. The light exploded at eye level, so bright we had to shield our eyes. When we could see again, winged beings hovered before us.

    Beings with familiar faces.

    “How could you?”

    “I have no choice.”

    “Liar.”

    I look to the other one. He’s angry. At us?…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, beware 6 years, 2 months ago

    No one ever obeyed the sign. Everyone ignored it, worked around it in some fashion. And it always worked out for them – they never had to pay the consequences. Not until now. Not until Frank tried to do what dozens before him had done. This time it didn’t work, this time he paid the price.

    “Beware of Dog.”

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, pained 6 years, 2 months ago

    It pained me to look at his broken body, but at the same time I couldn’t look away. I owed him that much – he was in this condition because of me. Me! He risked his life to save me! Why would he put himself in danger like that?

    Its too late now. What’s done is done. But as he lies on the bed, moaning in pain, I’m the one who treats his wounds.…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, truth 6 years, 2 months ago

    I still didn’t know the truth about who killed Tyler, but now I knew that Jack was innocent. That was something, at least. The question, though, was why would Jack want me to believe he was guilty?

    Was he protecting someone? Who would he be willing to protect? And why at the cost of my trust, after everything we’d been through?

    I didn’t…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, cities 6 years, 2 months ago

    She stares out at the sea, silently. They watch her but don’t speak. They wait for her to say something, anything. But she doesn’t. She won’t. They don’t know that she won’t, so they wait.

    He knows she won’t. Knows that she can’t, not yet. He knows her better than anyone, better than she knows herself. Better than she likes. Yes, he knows…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, cities 6 years, 2 months ago

    The cities burned to ash around us. No one inside survived. It was only those who came later, who searched through the charred remains that found any hint of what happened.

    The capitol city, reduced to a smoldering pile of rubble. Its sister city, some two hundred miles away, completely obliterated. It was hard to look at, hard to see. I was…[Read more]

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, flailing 6 years, 3 months ago

    I lost in this ocean of uncertainty, not sure where to turn. There’s no one to help me, no one to show me the way. I have to find it on my own. I have to be strong.

    But I’m flailing. Panicking. I can’t do this on my own. I’ll fall into darkness, never again to see the light of day, the promise of anything better.

    I need help, but there’s no…[Read more]

    Everyone plays a part, a role. They hide behind masks, can’t let anyone see their pain. Never let them see…

  • Solo Rae commented on the post, walls 6 years, 7 months ago

    The walls are too high. Can we really climb them?
    Not if you don’t believe you can’t.
    You think you’re going to fail, and you probably will.
    So believe you can do it.
