Happy Friday everyone, I hope all is well. 🙂
I know I’m late, sorry! Hahaha
In my defense, yesterday was my mother’s birthday and we were up through midnight (when I normally send this out).
And then, lucky me, my internet went down today as well. It’s back up now, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to send this email before it dies again! (If you’re reading this, then I made it!)
Also, those wildfires from the last email are a little more contained. We’ve been blessed with tons of rain, so things are soggy. Big improvement over smokey and firey!
Today’s story is uber short, sorry not sorry!
Chapter Seventeen – Part Three
West of Paradise, Galatia
“Where are our horses?” Rolland asks worriedly as he follows the two girls away from their camp.
“The hybrids got them,” Astrid answers flatly, “They were the first thing that were targeted.”
“Oh,” Haley sounds, her sadness evident. Since she had spent so much time tending to the horses over the years, she had really taken to them.
Rolland’s heart breaks momentarily at the hollowness in Haley’s voice as her sadness momentarily becomes his own. Out of all people to lose something in this attack, Haley should have been the last in line. She had already gone through so much. Frowning, Rolland moans before he offers a weakhearted joke, “Well, my dad is definitely going to ground me for this one!”
Astrid looks back to Rolland and shakes his head, signaling that now wasn’t the best time to joke around and he returns the look with one that said that he was just trying to make Haley smile. Shaking her head, Astrid turns back around and continues following Haley who is still dead silent.
Several minutes pass by at a snail’s pace as Rolland resists the urge to speak up. As much as he wanted to say something, he couldn’t bring himself to after Astrid’s correction. It just wasn’t a good time right now, he could tell that now.
“Astrid?” Haley says suddenly, making Rolland jump slightly.
Stopping behind Haley who is now standing still, Astrid asks, “What?”
“These tracks don’t look very promising,” Haley answers as she points at some tracks that Rolland can’t quite see.
Craning his neck around the girls, Rolland is greeted with the sight of several sets of footprints which are spaced far enough out and depressed deep enough that he can tell that those who left them behind were running for all they were worth. However, what was most worrying was the large webbed prints that followed the same trail. A hybrid was tracking the group of kids who ran this way. Broken branches on either side of the path show Rolland and the others some even more frightening news—the hybrid was massive. The largest he had ever seen, without a doubt. Judging by the broken foliage, the creature was at least four meters tall and two meters wide. Up until then, the biggest creature he had ever seen was only about half that size.
As Haley and the others continue staring, Haley quietly breathes, “I sure hope Maverick’s people are alright…”
Stay tuned for Chapter Eighteen! We’ll be picking things up with either Maverick or Gideon (spoiler alert, Gideon is getting into some trouble!)

Wars have a way of dragging on, and sometimes you need a safe harbor.
A Sanctuary, if you will.
Having reclaimed the stolen mech, Firefly, Matthew is now concerned with saving Marie.
After all, she saved him. He’s bound by honor to do the same in return. With the twins Alois and Louise at his side, Matthew reasons that the odds are stacked in his favor. Problem is, they aren’t.
Join Matthew as he fights to save Allegra!
