Exert from: The Book with no Name
A story running on my Patreon Page
** This is a story about a young woman named Kaylee who found a book only she can open and the consequences of her opening the book. It has knights, demons and ghosts. This story runs on my Patreon page**
That night she dreamed of castles and horses. Men in armor and women in fancy dresses. Her dream was a messy compilation of images rather than a strict narrative. Like she was channel surfing except every channel was about medieval times. Kaylee woke up in the middle of the night to the smell of something vial. A mix of body odor, feces, and nasty that was oppressive. When she woke the smell dissipated immediately. For a second she could see a shadow on the floor of her room. It was human shaped, too big to be anyone in her family. The spent the rest of the night staring at the door. She would fall asleep then wake up to a sound then fall asleep again. The next morning, she woke up to find her mother in her room.
She had her angry pose on and her angry face screwed tight. She said, “Kaylee what were you thinking?” It didn’t really sound like a question she could answer. Her mother directed her to her door. She said, “you know you don’t belong outside at night.” Outside her room she found muddy footprints. Kaylee held her foot to the closest print. The print was triple the size of her foot. Her mother looking at the print and her daughters foot caught on. She told her to get dressed and pack a bag. Kaylee grabbed a gym bag and a couple of outfits her mother made up for her in her closet. She grabbed her phone, tablet, chargers and the book. Her mother called her father and then they bolted from the house.
These are short stories I wrote. Some are connected to the larger books I am working on others are just for the fun of story telling.
