Lydie and Nick… in a sexy way? There is a ship I have not heard before. ;) Well, who knows what the future may bring, but for now I don’t have plans to write more in the Demon’s Lexicon universe. ;)
Like… are we talking fighting each other in gladiatorial combat?
'NICK: Is there any chance we could make this a sex thing?
MAE: …
NICK: Ask the judges. It’ll be a good show. I mean otherwise she’s just dead. That’s not very entertaining.
MAE: !!!
NICK: I’m sorry, honey, but you suck at all the weapons, and I’m awesome at all the weapons.’
'ALAN: Scheming our way out of here.
SIN: I hope the scheme involves showmanship, because there is a crowd!’
'SEB: Just kill me.
JAMIE: No! … That would be extremely traumatic for me. I’m a sensitive plant.’
'JARED: Just kill me. It's fine.
KAMI: I wish to interview a member of this bloodthirsty crowd and write an expose!
KAMI: Failing that is there any way we can make this a sex thing?
JARED: … I need to sit down.’
'HOLLY: Is there any way we could make this a sex thing?
RUSTY: I 100 % endorse this suggestion.’
'ASH: Oh no, oh God, what are we going to do?
ANGELA: *kills Ash*
ANGELA: *naps*’

“Flying a kite,” Jamie suggested desperately. “That might be a lark! What do you say!”

Nick threw a knife in Jamie’s direction.

Jamie waited for the red flashes going on and off behind his eyes, like psychic police car lights, to fade away before he said, very carefully: “Have I offended you in some way? Do you hate kites?”

“What?” said Nick.

Jamie was still staring at the knife, blade embedded in the earth a centimeter away from his hand.

“You threw a knife at me.”

“Have you been stabbed?” Nick asked. “No? Then I didn’t throw a knife at you. I threw a knife to you.”

“You’re a demon,” Jamie said reproachfully. “Surely you shouldn’t be playing cruel vocabulary games with me.”

I just saw the TEENY COVERS for the Unspoken short stories! They have COVERS, y’all. ;)

“Exchanging names might’ve been a bad idea, though,” Daniel said thoughtfully. “In case we’re trapped here and one of us has to eat the other to survive.“ He blinked and then added: “I’m a gentleman, though, so you’re welcome to kill me and eat me if you have to.”

“Thanks,” Marie said. “That’s very considerate.”

I am a hopeless romantic, y’all.

Short stories for Unspoken… NEXT WEEK!

At the end of the day Nick smiled at Alan to show he was happy, Alan tucked him into bed and gave him a hot water bottle. Hot water bottles were hot and squashy and did not happen all the time. Nick thought that Alan meant the hot water bottle as a reminder that Alan was smiling at Nick when Alan had to go out of the room. He reached out his hands for it.

“Oh, is that your favourite hot water bottle?” Alan said, smiling. “I didn’t know. You can have it every time from now on.”

He put the hot water bottle close to Nick, the way he used to put a teddy bear in bed with him. Nick had not minded if Alan thought he should sleep with a teddy bear: Alan had said anxiously that it was nice and soft and comforting. Nick wasn’t sure what comforting meant, but the teddy bear was soft. It had struck him that the teddy bear’s eyes were hard, though, so Nick tore out the eyes and put them on the floor.

After that Alan took the teddy bear away.

There is a reason I am reblogging short stories. And that is… that the Unspoken short stories are coming. O they are coming!

“I’ll take your bargain, and I’ll take the body. And I’ll give you what you want in return. But you should know this: one day you’ll die, partner, or you’ll slip up, and then the world is mine alone. I’ll burn it until it’s all ash and wasteland. I will burn the world, and I will laugh as your whole lying race burns with it and finally, finally falls silent. That’s my part of the bargain. All I want is the world’s death.”

Hnikarr, the caller of the last darkness.

Demons never lied.

“I used to have a friend called Mark who had a pet tortoise,” Jamie said. “His name was Sinbad. I’m not sure why. Mark totally made us all play with the tortoise like it was another kid. And he used to say things like ‘Sinbad’s feeling a bit under the weather today’ or ‘Sinbad doesn’t like this…

I was just thinking about how I hope I can share more short stories soon.
