THE WATCHER

THE WATCHER

A Watcher for the God of War returns to the world under abnormal circumstances after being murdered with the love of his life. He still remembers his previous life though there are some grey areas in his memories which he cannot assess yet due to him not possessing his real body. This hampers his strength a great deal as he deals with attacks from fellow Watchers and forces of darkness. On the other hand, the love of his life reincarnates with no memories of him or her past life. She is more powerful than in her previous life, probably more powerful than anyone alive. Dwelling in human settlements where witches are being hunted massively, she's forced to live the early parts of her life in the shadows. But as she grows, her power can no longer be contained as she becomes a target for humans and her kind. The Watcher must reunite with his love, understand why they both returned the way they did, uncover the real reason why they were murdered, bring their killer to justice, and fight off further attempts on their lives. All the while, an evil force once banished from the world makes a return.

Earthen Blood

Earthen Blood

They called her cursed and left her at the mercy of the elements, she was supposed to be dead.  But she wasn't. She was a wish made real, blessed and yet cursed by the gods that ruled their world.  To her people she was an omen of bad luck, an omen of their destruction and there were no two ways about. Her village is suddenly destroyed, she and many others taken away. For them it was slavery, for her it was to never get a chance to know the people she wished would accept her and another reason for them to hate her. Left alone to navigate a world new to her yet so familiar. Her journey takes her to different places, where she meets different people with different perspectives of who or what she is, some with more darker thoughts than others. She learns more about herself and others, more than she has ever known, more than she ever dreamed of and more she wished she did not. Excerpt She opened her eyes to look at the old woman. Her eyes flashing an eerie silver, a warning to the old crone not to come any closer. The old crone ignored the obvious warning coming closer. The claws on her fingers made of bone and metal gleamed in the fire light much like the madness that shone in her eyes, the blood she spilt painting her from head to toe in red.  "Haven't met one of you in a long, very long time." She said in a voice that played tricks on ears. The same voice that tricked everyone in camp into their horrible deaths. Awarake couldn't move anymore, her limbs refused to obey her, all she could do was give a warning glare at the creature infront of her, approaching in sure and calculated steps. "Tonight must truly be my lucky night." The old creature woman said. Her bloody lips pulling back to reveal rows of sharp snake like teeth. All blood stained, a bit of flesh and gut trapped in between. Awarake fell her stomach contents roll. "I'm going to enjoy the taste of your flesh and your suffering too, Earthen blood." She said. The old woman? Creature? Awarake didn't know which was appropriate, did not have time to, not that it mattered. The thing in front of her was right before her bending at an impossibly odd angle, its hand now so large and skeletonized wrapped around her neck, slicing the flesh and piercing her shoulder. A scream erupted from her lips as it dug deeper.  It smiled revealing, once again, the bone chilling rows of teeth that looked like death and breath that smelled of blood and flesh as her scream worsened. "Yes, I am going to enjoy this very much."
