She discovers the truth after being released from hospital, and sets out the free herself from the curse, and to save Trey. Someone's trying to kill him. He gets hurt, she pays the price. So she must save his order to save herself. Fist chapter is awful, just toying around with it.
Abandon (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
2 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Darcy Hallow is attacked on her way home, and after a fight and a struggle on her part, she is knocked out and taken to a secure location (a padded cell) and told that she will now take her sister's place in Riverside city, where the first born teenagers from each household, between the ages of 16 and 18, are sent to tackle the mutants that have sprung up due to the nuclear disaster and the chemicals that inhabited the sewers, but also to control the population surplus. They are relieved from their duty once they turn 18, but many die in the attempt. Darcy's older sister, Raina, was sent to fulfil the requirement, but she has disappeared, and each family must have a volunteer in service, unless their volunteer/captive has died or survived the trial. Darcy is sent to the city to tackle monsters, and the other "contestants", as the pressure of living has turned their living situation in Riverside into the deadliest game there is. But Darcy has a secret. Raina taught her how to fight before she left, and Darcy won't be beaten. She will find out what happened to her sister. She will find out how she died. And if she was murdered...well, there'll be hell to pay. It's Dystopian.
One Day... (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Gwen Stark has a lot of stuff on her plate. By day, she's struggling with school, working her way towards a college education. By night, she's an ass-kicking, demon hunting assassin for hire, earning her wage. Life isn't simple. Life is hard. But then again, isn't it for everyone? Just a preface to something I might work on. Desperately short. Let me know what you think.
