This is the first chapter in a story I'm writing. This is my attempt at the modern vampire romance genre that I read, but seem to hate. This is also the first time in a long time that I am attempting a chapter length...dare I say it...novel.

Six Word Stories

I was challenged, so to speak, to come up with a six word story, essentially to create a mood or scene with only six words. The following is that story. It is much shorter than this description.

I have started adding more than the original as this is a very fun pastime.

“Jeff, check the bus for a shovel.”

“Dude, I think he's still alive.”

“No shovel.”

“I'm a horrible person and deserve to die. I'm a horrible person and deserve to die. I'm a horrible person...”

An Honorable mention goes to John, for helping come up with the Great Keiko.

This is the first story in a series about Keiko, a woman who visits a temple on an alien planet and is transformed into their goddess.

Honorable mention to Spring for helping come up with the heroes and deciding who the victim should be

He was asleep, as she knew he would be. It was 3:17:42 a.m., and he had an aerobics class scheduled for 8:00 a.m. that he would want to be well-rested for.

She crept into his bedroom from the hallway door and then quietly over to his bed. She looked down at him in disdain as if she wanted to kill him.

“You failed,” she muttered angrily in a soft girlish London accent. She pulled out the chloroform and a rag and followed the directions from the website on kidnapping techniques. She had found the site while doing a Google search on getting a resistant toddler to nap. When she was sure that he had lost full consciousness, she hogtied him in beef jerky ropes and gagged him with a cloth that had been dipped in butter.

Soon he would understand the pain he had put her through; soon he would know just how hard it was to lose weight. It was all she could do to stifle a laugh.

The Quest

In a time before recorded history, before time as we know it even began, there was a land called Londstede that has since gone forgotten by time. It was a place unlike any land discovered or inhabited since. It was like Wyoming, only it was surrounded entirely by water like an island and it was bigger like a small continent and it had more people and a slightly different climate…Okay, so maybe it was nothing like Wyoming, so just forget what I said. It was really more like Australia, anyway, but without all the cool animals like dingos and wallabies and kangaroos, except of course for platypi which ran rampant like rats.

Maggie hit the alarm clock and rolled over in bed while cursing its existence. She didn’t want to get out of bed today and she didn’t want to go to class. She looked over at the clock. 9:32. Most people wouldn’t consider that early, but Maggie gave it the finger anyway as she all but fell out of bed. In just her black lace bikini panties and a black spaghetti strap tank top she walked to the bathroom to shower and get ready.
