The Blood Guard

Chapter 3

By James Hillman



“No, no, no! Let’s send Shazeel north!” The young, tanned makine muttered to himself, as he walked through a small muddy village.

“Oh yes a brilliant idea! Surely, because he’s the best with makis he’s the one who should investigate the ‘blood guard’ whatever that is. And naturally we’ll give him no idea what he’s even looking for because ‘he’s a bright kid’ and ‘could use the… Continue

Another Lost Soul

By James Hillman



He finished writing the small paper note and warm tears crawled down his cheek. Life hadn’t always been like this; he was sure of it, but it’s all he could remember. It had – for many years now – felt like he was drowning in a black sea. He shook his head; he hated thinking that he sounded like one of those over-emotional, dramatic, attention-seekers.

The Blood Guard

Chapter 1

By James Hillman



On the wooden floor in a plain room with white-washed walls, a man sat cross-legged. The room was plain, but not because of poverty. This was one of the rooms given to members of the Blood Guard; deep underground, windowless, and empty. The only sign of extravagance was the golden scabbard in the man’s lap.
