Where The Raven Sits Part 7
Chapter Seven
    Jason. Kadie had to remind herself of the name several times. The creature…it…he was now perched on the railing, facing the canyon. Even though he looked human again, she could only see him as the disfigured thing that had intruded upon her in the middle of the night. And in a weird way she felt kidnapped being at the landing with something that was possibly dangerous when she really didn’t want to be. The problem was, it was technically her father that had kidnapped her. Her father who had left her alone with…him to get bottled water from the car. Kadie sat on the hot ground all the way across the landing. She didn’t trust herself to stay balanced on the railing as much as she didn’t trust this Jason. Why don’t they put benches here? She kicked at a stone. It’d be so much easier to focus on him if I was comfortable. Look at him! How can he just sit there like he isn’t some monster walkin

This chapter may be some type of small SPOILER, but that is up to you. If you've read the first book then you're fine. If not then it's up to you if you want to continue reading. Either way, I hope you enjoy.

    Jenna scrubbed at the stain as hard as she could. Around her sat a small army of cleaning products…and ants. Hordes and hordes of ants. The mystery splotch had appeared late last night and attracted the insects like a dog whistle. Mostly ants, but also some other little bugs that made the girl’s skin crawl, especially when she stepped on them when getting a late night glass of water. So Jenna had tasked herself with cleaning it. It was a sticky substance, even as she scrubbed it the towels and sponges caught on the floor. She was about ready to remove the floor tile completely just to get rid of blotch. The girl switched products again. That didn’t work, so she switched again. That didn’t work either.

Chapter Six
They pulled up at the hiking trail just as a small dust storm was clearing up. At that time during a weekday there were no other cars in the lot. It was eerily empty, like people had been evacuated instead of being at work or school. To Kadie, the parking lot looked unusually large. The air was choking, but her dad didn’t mind as he led her down the trail. Almost letting her nerves get the better of her, she nearly found herself reaching for her father’s hand. Kadie held off, making a fist and sticking it in her pocket. She wasn’t positive that that made her feel safer than holding hands with her dad, but she convinced herself that nothing else could grab it. On the other hand, her dad didn’t seem too worried about strange creatures getting grabby. As they walked the trail his face grew hard with thought. The wrinkles on his forehead doubled and his eyes lost focus. Kadie wondered if he was rethinking tracking this creature down. She hoped that

Kadie shouted, the sound muffled by her pillow. The green fabric was uncommonly warm against her face. It was wet with sweat and smelled like she had been coughing on it for hours. Lifting her head, she pushed the offensive smelling cushion away. The sun was out, shining brightly through the window. In the tree outside sat a nest that she wasn’t sure was ever there before. The room was warm. The clock blinked ten in the morning. Kadie hadn’t slept in that late for a while; she had spent so many years getting up for work that sleeping past eight o’clock made her body stiff. But she felt well rested and awake. There were no aches anywhere, she didn’t feel tired, and energy was already beginning to flow through her. At first she thought it was adrenaline, but it was more the type of energy that came with a strong energy shot.
Kadie got up, walking around her room and touching things to make sure they were solid. Satisfied that every item was real, she

Chapter -3-
    Turner was troubled, bothered enough to be somewhat distracted in his work. Thoughts of the human girl overwhelmed him for the few days leading to his brother’s arrival. It took more of his attention than it probably should have. For all his reasoning the only explanation the Guardian could think of was the girl had been part of some elaborate hoax. Humans did not have energy. They did not speak their language. Wints did. Thus a wint had to have paired up with a human. How? And when? Why was the most infuriating question. The Prince knew Turner wasn’t sure if such collaboration was against some law he had yet to reinforce, but it certainly was not appreciated, and he would make it known that pranks like it would not be tolerated in the future. What degree of punishment he would administer would be settled on by their explanation and reasoning.

    The dye in my hair is fading. The young woman preened herself in the bedroom mirror. In the reflection behind her were a few dirty towels and discarded shoes. Off just to the side, right at the edge of the reflection, the bunk bed shied away from view. She avoided looking at the pile on the bottom bed by adjusting her stance so it couldn’t be seen at all. After switching out the studs in her ears and nose, she pulled back her loosely curled hair, used a clip to keep the bangs from her face, and then she got dressed. She could smell eggs and bacon and toast in the kitchen and hear the news on the television. She stopped to listen for a moment to see if anything interesting was happening. After announcing the channel was getting a new weatherman, the reports were nothing more than a recap of yesterday’s department store fire, a contest to name the new subway, the city fundraiser, and the previous day’s crazy driver and the temporary fix

         The Guardian swept his foot in a wide arc around the speeding vehicle and brought his heel down on its trunk. He could feel the metal crunch beneath his boot as his weight settled. The young Guardian had almost missed it. For a few moments longer the tires continued to kick up dirt until the rubber was shredded and the rims crushed. From the front of the car the driver leaned out of the window, yelling profanity and raging on about the damage to his car. The female passenger stayed quiet. Ignoring the one-man commotion, Turner dragged the vehicle back in front of him with his heel. Knowing the car was going nowhere, the young Guardian knelt low so he could look in through the front windshield at the two humans. So near to the ground, the stench of the tires and smoke twisted his stomach. The driver’s face was red, though from anger or the obvious bad tan, Turner was not su

Kadie stood in the middle of her room, staring at the wall. It was blank with the exception of an old family photo. The hard, cold wood of the floor cooled her soles as she stood there feeling the scuffs and cracks on her toes. She could hear the washer in the next room, muffled by the thick basement wall. Still, the strong stench of laundry detergent stung her nose. Kadie was surprised she was alive enough to experience the lazy familiarity of her surroundings. She had expected more than her dad coming home, kissing her mother, and telling her dinner smelled good. The car was never brought up. Her mother didn’t even seem to consider asking about it. The rent was another matter, but her dad merely waved a hand and said Kadie had given it to him. Kadie hadn’t and was wondering why her dad felt the need to lie about that. Was it because they had gone through enough already; she was grateful if that were the case. He had gone to bed unusually early leaving her with no chance t

“Just…don’t tell your mom and we can pretend that wasn’t a thing.”
Kadie looked at her dad like he had lost his mind. Who could pretend to have not seen that…creature? Monster? Thing! How was it even walking around without anyone seeing it?! She glanced at the passenger side mirror, wondering if the thing was still in view. It was relieving and almost disappointing that it wasn’t there. What the hell even was it? She looked back at her father who was uncommonly silent as he sat with the car sitting idle. He was slightly pale and she was sure his hands would be shaking if he hadn’t spent years seeing things people with weaker stomachs would have passed out over. That thing had touched him. No matter how many times he said it hadn’t hurt him, that thing had put its claws on her father. He could have been killed! They could still be killed so why weren’t they driving away?!
Kadie had to stop and calm herself down. <

“Now, tell me what this place looks like.”
We sat at a corner booth in an open front shop. The smells of food hinted at what was being made behind the stone stacked dividing wall. Outside the mist hung high in the air, barely blocking the morning sun. Not a storm cloud could be seen for miles. The distant hills stood shadowed by fog, an uninviting sight for those like us who needed to venture through them, but otherwise they were clear. Mist brushed the rolling hills in the distance. Hints of rain played on their peeks and white streamers floated to and fro. The lands around us seemed sleepy, slow, putting in efforts to wake completely. Few people were out in the early morning, fewer doing anything with vigor. A patrol…person – someone whose gender was difficult to speculate – came into the eatery for a quick mug of something strong smelling. Others crowded into the small building, filling their faces with warm meals and drinking. A duo of waite

    “DAD!!!” Kadie ran to the ledge, leaning as far over it as she could. She could see her dad sprawled out over the guy on a small shelf about ten feet below her. She fought a wave of panic that had caused her to nearly burst into tears. He looked okay – her dad – as he slowly sat up. “Dad! Are you okay?”
    Her dad looked up at her and gave sort of a worried smile. With some effort, he rolled the guy off him, scooting as far away as the little shelf would allow. That was strange; her dad was a retired nurse who usually jumped at the chance to help someone. But he was looking at the guy like the kid was some kind of monster. Getting down on her knees, Kadie ducked her head beneath the fence post and reached out her arm.
    “Kay, I’m not going to be able to reach you.” Her dad hadn’t taken his eyes off the guy.

Fieldtrips: They Should All Be This Exciting.

    I bounced up and down. My papa stood on one side of me while my dad stood on the other. Both had a hand firmly on my shoulders to prevent me from bouncing all the way to the clouds. Flip and Donnie waited beside me. The rest of Mrs. Barn’s fourth period class chattered loudly with friends and classmates. Practically everyone was abuzz and who could blame us? It was an overnight fieldtrip! If anyone wasn’t excited it was probably the teachers. A good third of the class had their parents there to see them off as well. Smith’s mother was contently going through his backpack, her irritatingly high pitched voice asking embarrassing questions about his underwear. If he decided to act donkey on the trip I was so going to make fun of him later. Every student held a sleeping bag and required toiletries which had sensible parents asking how the morning routine was going to work and getting vague respon

Don’t Let School Come Home With You. Seriously, It Will Follow You.

    Three more days until the fieldtrip. Oh yeah, I was ecstatic. Though the previous week’s mailbox drama remained unsolved nothing would be able to sway my rising mood. Not a pissy dad – though my papa’s sucking up more than made up for Peter’s edgy attitude. Not even a week of detention presented by Dr. Odd. Which, with a tactful “I was just asking for a pencil.” and Flip tossing one my way, turned into half a week for not having “proper school supplies ready”. Ms. Jams pulled out a surprise test for us in math then decided we wouldn’t get the results until the next week – that kind of irked me. And P.E sported another basketball game. Okay, so some things could sour my mood.

Trashed. And Not In That Fun Way.

    I stepped onto the late bus with Flip and Donnie, the aisle stretching out before us, empty aside from the driver and a few other students leaving after school practices. Donnie waved to a few of the boys who lingered for another hour of practice time on the field. Shifting my backpack, I dropped down into a seat at the back of the bus, right across from the open space for wheelchairs. Liam Jones was already there, buckling in his chair. Then, with an unnatural amount of swiftness, using just his arms he pushed himself from the chair and scooted on to the bench seat beside me. His legs may not have worked very well, but those arms of his more than made up for it. He pushed stray locks of dark brown hair from his face, giving me a whopping smile. The grin caused the long, dark scar hugging the side of his face to stretch even more.
    “That’s our seat.” Flip complained.

Because You Really Wanted To Go To School With Me.

    Oh yeah, I regretted it.
    Keeping my arms firmly across my chest, I leered out the window as the bus pulled away from the stop. Beside me, Trisha was perched in Todd’s lap as if moving would rip her behind off. Either of them had scarcely spared me a glance when I’d sat down and from that point on the sound of spit being swapped was becoming far too familiar. Donovan and Flip sat a few rows ahead of us and across the aisle. Both boys gave me sympatric glances, only able to guess at the massive amount of suffering I was going through. Other students of Richard High School chattered and laughed, going about their business, babbling on like nobody’s business. Joshua Smith – one of the guys in Todd’s group of friends that only knew me through the couple – turned from the seat in front of me, made some comment about us doing what the pair was and a few other lew

What Really Is Permission? Like, Really?

    Life is full of little hardships. Little hurdles. Things that in hindsight aren’t worth being frustrated over, though at the time they are very worth being frustrated over. Things like missing your bus when you really aren’t going anywhere important. Or a bird dumping on your car when you’re parked under a tree and the engine doesn’t work. Or someone standing in the middle of the sidewalk and you getting mad when all you need to do is take two extra steps to get around them or say excuse me. Even something like getting a paper cut then putting on hand sanitizer. My point is that some things aren’t worth stressing over because they aren’t that big of a deal. Like I say, don’t fart where you lay your head.
    But some things are totally worth stressing the fuck out over. Like turning purple because you can’t

My computer has overheated twice so I haven't been writing too much in fear that in the middle of typing my computer would shut down. I'll be home with my fan soon so I can get to writing again without worry.
Heads up (because it never occurred to me to say this before), but the few chapters I post of Guardian's Keeper may hold spoilers from the first book. So if you haven't read the first book (Guardian's Host) then you may want to check it out. It's still and even $15 on my website at the moment.
Guardian's Host on sale for $15 even. No shipping.

For real serious question. Who here reads/plays Visual Novels?
"Writing a book is easy."
Writing is not easy. It's fulfilling, but difficult in the actual process. There are ups and downs.
"How could it take you six years to finish your first book?"
It didn't. I finished my first novel in a year, it's sequel a few months later.
Guardian's Host is not my first novel. Technically it's my fifth written, but my third completed. I put more time and care into it. I took more care in writing Guardian's Host. I connected with it more and wanted to make it the best it could be despite how I felt about it at the beginning. I was working on another book when I got the idea for GH. It was irritating that I couldn't get the idea for it out of my head. But once I started writing it I quickly fell head-over-heels for the characters and story. I wanted to do them justice. It took a lot of time, work, editing, writers' block, long nights, and stress to finish GH.
It didn't take six years to write the story. It took seven years to finish EVERYTHING that had to do with the wring process surrounding it.
For the sequels I know better and can go through the process quicker. But it still won't be easy. Writing a book is fulfilling. Not easy.
To everyone who follows my writing, I wanted to let you all know that I know have a Patreon page. My Patreon Even the smallest amount helps, but I'm grateful just to have the word spread.
Thank you everyone.
