THE DEVIL’S RETREAT

Felix stood before Risk in ah, in the middle of the little, busy bar.

“We have not met Risk… But I know of you… I am Felix, the Blue Paladin… The 8th Paladin of Octo,” spoke Felix in somewhat desperation.

Risk did not face him, and instead took a large swig out of one of the bottles of red wine before him.

“You shouldn’t have come here…” he then replied remorsly.

“It is my duty to protect this realm… It is your duty too… Now wake from this fogged daze knight, and rise once again to your responsibilities!” spoke Felix with great conviction.

Risk took great pause before answering, as the bar sounds on a Friday night continue to get louder and louder.

“There are shadows…” he then replied emotionless.

With this Felix takes a step towards him, “Of course there are shadows, and we all must face them as they arise inside us… But we have each other… We’ve always had each other,” he pleas.

With this Risk turns to face Felix from his bar stool… “No,” he then lifts his great mace and points it at one of the corners of the bar behind Felix… “There… Are shadows.”

With this Felix begins to sweat, as he slowly turns to look behind him and is a feared at what he sees.

In one of the corners of the bar can be seen the shifting shadow of what appears to be some sort of shadow demon sprawled up near the ceiling, watching the two Paladins.

“Good lord…” with this, Felix quickly reaches for his sword, which is not there…

And the shadow strikes!

My “I Died Once” Novella – 3rd Edition (Altered Cover Color)

Posted in 3rd Edition, I Died Once, James Mahoney, Novella, Short Story, Story on October 16, 2014 by darkjade68

My “I Died Once” Novella – 3rd Edition (Altered Cover Color)

Soon I will be Self-Publishing My 3rd Edition “I Died Once” Novella, and thought I’d share with you a couple possible Covers

But First, here’s the Original (Current)

(Front And Back)

Cover C1This Second One is something My Co-Designer sent me, where we’ve just changed the color of the back cover, and Tinted the Front Cover a bit

I Died Once Cover - BlueAnd Finally what stemmed this idea, though I’ve always liked changing things up once in a while like I did with my Poetry Book “Winter, Lust, And Wonder”‘s Black Cover, is the Cover Alterations I’d Like To See

(This Is Just The Original Art Altered, The Actual Cover Will Of Course Have The Title, And A Back Cover Which Will Likely Be A Blue Color)

I Died Once Alternate Color 2I just love the color alteration above… Which I believe was a fluke, as I was looking at some files in my DropBox, and one of the covers took on this color… But when you open the actual file, it looks like the Original Version

Very Strange, but I’ve gone ahead and asked both my Co-Cover Designer, as well as the Original Drawing Artist Herself, if they’d be able to alter the image so that it looks like that

We Shall See

The New 3rd Edition of “I Died Once” will be $5.95 if you’re interested in Pre-Ordering (Though The Final Cover Is Yet To Be Determined), Plus Shipping

The Original Copies of the 3rd Edition Will Be Signed By Me As Well

If You’re Interested in Pre-Ordering you can E-mail Me at jadeblue68@yahoo.com

I shall keep all of you updated as the New Cover Develops

Octo

The Fallen

Paladins Aren’t Meant To Love…

What A Silly Law

What A Silly…

Curse

I got dosed by you and
Closer than most to you and
What am I supposed to do

Take it away, I never had it anyway
Take it away and everything will be okay

In you a star is born and
You cut a perfect form and
Someone forever warm

Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on

Way upon the mountain where she died
All I ever wanted was your life
Deep inside the canyon, I can’t hide
All I ever wanted was your life

Show love with no remorse and
Climb on to your seahorse and
This ride is right on course

This is the way, I wanted it to be with you
This is the way, I knew that it would be with you

Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on

Way upon the mountain where she died
All I ever wanted was your life
Deep inside the canyon, I can’t hide
All I ever wanted was your life

I got dosed by you and
Closer than most to you and
What am I supposed to do

Take it away, I never had it anyway
Take it away and everything will be okay

Way upon the mountain where she died
All I ever wanted was your life
Deep inside the canyon, I can’t hide
All I ever wanted was your life

NEW YORK
A COLD WINTERS NIGHT
The three men, Felix, Harvey and Samual make their ways through the snow filled sidewalks, to ‘Lenny’s Diner’, in hope of some warm soup
“What did they call him… This… Yellow Golden Paladin?” Harvey questioned Felix as they made their way.
“Flare… But I wouldn’t call him that if I were you,” replied Felix.
Suddenly Samuel points at Lenny’s Diner, and the other two men nod… they go inside.
Disregarding the many unhappy looks, their attire gave away that they live on the streets.
Felix nodded, and gave a friendly smile to the onlookers non the less, “Evening folks.”
They sit at a window table, and watch outside as the snow fills the streets.
Felix takes note of a bar across the street…
In Big Red Neon Lights, “The Devil’s Retreat.”
“So what should I call him if I see him?” questions Harvey.
Felix’s gaze returns to Harvey, “Spire… They call him Spire on the streets.”
A waitress comes to the table.
“What will it be for you three gents…” she inquires, chomping gum, and not really looking directly at them.
“Uh… Coffee mam… For all three of us,” Felix says, and tosses a few silver dollars on the table.
Harvey and Samuel look at one another, “Where’d you get the stash Felix? Been holden out?” speaks Samuel.
Felix smiles, “Nah, it was for a rainy day… Or…. Snowy day as it were,” the other two smile, and take off their coats.
Meanwhile Felix’s gaze returns to the bar… And what he sees amazes him.
Outside of the bar, a man in what appears to be Red Knight Armour, dragging a long mace on the ground, enters the bar.
Felix’s face goes pale.
The waitress brings the coffee.
“There you go fellows, let me know if you’d like anything else,” speaks the waitress.
“Soup…” the voice of a lovely young brown haired woman suddenly speaks.
“Soup for all of them…” she finishes, and hands the waitress a twenty dollar bill.
Felix and the others look at the girl who has lavender eyes, and smiles as she leaves, pulling on a long dark purple coat.
“Soup it is,” says the waitress, and steps away.
“Well this is our lucky day,” speaks Samuel as he stirs in milk and sugar into his coffee.
“This isn’t luck,” says Felix as he rises from the table, and puts on his jacket, “I’ll be right back fellows…”
Felix dashes back out into the snow filled streets, and crosses the street.
THE DEVIL’S RETREAT
Meanwhile inside The Devil’s Retreat, the man in red armour, sits at the counter.
In front of him are three bottles of red wine, the first already empty, as he drinks directly out of a fourth bottle.
Patrons of the bar sit as far from him as they can.
And the bartender looks a bit taken aback, but at the same time, has seen some strange things in his time.
Felix enters the bar.
“Rencor… Is that you?” he says to the Red Knight, whose hair is light brown, straight, and goes down to just above his shoulders.
His eyes are dark blue.
“Risk… You can call me Risk,” he replies.
I Never Gave Up…
I’ve Just Been Waiting For You To Return
Who Says I’ve Returned

The Dragon Feasts Alone

Dragon_and_girl__by_anne_stock_by_NennvialelfenuitThe Dragon Feasts Alone

The Dragon Feasts Alone…

Golden worth thoughts

Sharpened Fangs…

Eyes Fixed Brightly on the prize

The Prize So Sweet…

It’s soft Breath

And Warm Tone…

Leaves him wanting so badly…

So badly it hurts

The Plummeting begins…

Her Soft, warm, inviting eyes

How can he eat Such a thing…

Dragon wait, there is more…

And So it Sleeps, and Sleeps

She touches him Softly while he sleeps…

He does not know this

And when Sun rises…

He is angered…

Angered that She dost live on

Not digested…

Love contested

Pride is on the rise…

He Stomps and Flaps

Smoke Fire Rises…

And than She Sings her Song…

And he is young…

His eyes are Small

She quietly Snaps the Chains…

And approaches his heart…

He is afraid…

He is always afraid

Except when She is near…

She Is Wise

And Strums You So

Through Dark Sheets Watching, His Movements Slow

Once Intwined, She Warms Your Thoughts

And Brings You Home, Where Rules Are Bought

And Though He Follows, On Legs Of Tin

What He Finds, Does Cut Within

A Hush Does Fall, As Histories Watch

As Souls Are Chosen, Like Helpless Dots

We Are One Kind, Not Multi Lotts

Kept At Night, Chained And Locked

One Large Table, Will Suit Us All

Crack Open Shells, Release The Call

The Done Shall Cheer, And Run, And Shout

No More Secrets, The Truth Is Out

Storm The Streets, Bearing Shine

Once Thought Less, Now Devine

From Highest Mountain, To Smallest Tree

Between Our Ears, Our Destiny
