The Final Battle

The Broken Oath Part 5 Star trembled in the shade of the tree despite the heat of midday. Greatwing shuffled his wings beside the meer and glanced up the hollow trunk. He would not meet Star's gaze. The Firstbloods had been meeting in this for countless moons, but this was unlike any other meeting that... Continue Reading →

The Lie

The Broken Oath Part 4 The wild cat crouched in the shadowed gully of a shallow trench. Her dark striped pelt twitched as a fly buzzed about her head. She ignored it, her pale green gaze focused on the hare. The dune colored rabbit picked through the grass at the top of the trench. She... Continue Reading →

The Most Wonderful Day of The Year

Today wasn’t supposed to be like this. Snow still swirls in chilly gusts of wind And icicles still form on all the shingles, There’s something else that’s different though. The day is December 25th, But no lights twinkle on the trees or in the yard. Instead the gutters glisten with crimson ice-melt, And fake snow... Continue Reading →

The Accusation

The Broken Oath Part 3 The gray goshawk with a stark yellow beak and white belly clenched her talons into the fraying bark of the matopi tree. The green leaves plump and full from the plentiful wet season fluttered near her blue eyes and she shifted her position in annoyance. As the heartbeats ticked by,... Continue Reading →

Last Christmas

Christmas day is here again And sadness greets me like a friend As memories flood through my mind Of what happened last year at this time. I couldn’t believe when I woke up to find The house quiet, there being no sound I rushed down stairs in my excitement to see That there were no... Continue Reading →

Under

The snow gathers on the ground, Beautiful flakes falling and falling down, Sun glistening on them like the day will never end, Yet night will arrive early, an unwelcome friend. You don’t know though what’s underneath Of those fluffy cold piles of white flakes, But maybe it is best that you don’t know, That all... Continue Reading →

Little Life

Bitter air nipped at my throat, Heat struggling to flee my coat Maybe looking for another host. Warily I continue to travel Down the road to see what’s the matter Inside of the barn where I heard a small sound Of little bodies shuffling around. As I open the door I’m greeted by hay And... Continue Reading →

The Alliance

The Broken Oath Part 2 The raptor glided on the wind, his flight feathers curved and spread to catch the updraft. From his vantage point he could see the rolling dunes of the Desert sprawling towards the setting sun. Far beneath him his sharp gaze made out the undulating stripes of a herd of zebra... Continue Reading →

The Betrayal

The Broken Oath Part 1 Death Bringer drew his coils tighter around him, his thin tongue flickering out of his mouth to taste the air. It was just before dawn and the sky was still a dark azure. He lifted his head as the breeze carried the scent of a meer. He recognized that scent.... Continue Reading →

Sorrel’s Honor

The full moon hung low in the dark sky, silhouetting Queen as she sat upon the Hill. Topside at the Main Burrow was the whole Alphas family. Pride stood close to the Hill’s base and stared up at his mate, their youngest daughter Brightlight, by his side. The little three moon old pup was quivering... Continue Reading →

Swift’s Fear

Swift stood on her hind legs and scanned the terrain with her sharp cobalt eyes. She scented the breeze as it whisked past her. No sight or scent of predators. Her gaze fell on the figure of her father, his head submerged in a hole. He dragged out a large millipede and proceeded to gorge... Continue Reading →

Bull’s Madness

Bull stood in the center of the group, all eyes on him as he scanned the crowd. His breaths were heavy, as if he had just finished a fight, and his broad shoulders squared. His face bore several small scars from a life of scraping. He had had to fight for every scrap of power... Continue Reading →

The Alphas

The Alphas are one of the most prominent meer families in the desert. They are a medium sized family, with over twenty members. They live in the heart of the Sunlands, with neighbors on each of their borders. The Alphas were founded by the current dominant female, Queen, when she was evicted from her birth...

Cloud’s Farewell

Every breath that Cloud drew was a struggle. The skin beneath her fur burned with heat, her fever insatiable. The puncture wound in her side reeked of infection. She had earned it in a skirmish with the Powers. She had no choice, she had to drive them out of Delta territory. That had been almost... Continue Reading →

Cat Magic

Millie waited by the door, her silky black pelt fluffed with anticipation. She could hear the patering of little footsteps and ringing laughter floating down the hallway. She whisked her tail impatiently. This was her favorite night of the year, Halloween was her human's word for it, for this was the night that she would... Continue Reading →

Chaser’s Ghost

Chaser padded beside his litter sister Hunter and cast a last glance back at the burrow. There was no moon that night, so they had to find their way by starlight.  “Don’t worry.” Hunter said, bumping his shoulder. “You’ll be fine. I’m sure that The Mimic isn’t even out tonight.” Chaser groaned. “Why’d you have... Continue Reading →

Passing Through

Richard Reese and Delilah Sutton could not have been more optimistic about purchasing the storage unit. It hadn’t been touched in fifteen years and happened to be the cheapest on the lot. They were hoping to discover that the storage unit was full of furniture for the quaint Victorian era cottage down the road. Delilah... Continue Reading →

Faces Behind Masks

Don't move. Don't speak. Don't breathe. They are here. They are watching. They want me. They want you. They are hungry. Who? Who are they? Who am I? Who are you? They are the demons, the cravers of the dark. They are the shadows sapping all the hope. They are the greedy, all they need... Continue Reading →

Meerkats

I thought that you guys might appreciate a little more information on meerkats; that way you will be able to understand The Meer better. As I stated on my 'Sources' page, I have gotten much of this information from the show "Meerkat Manor" that was on Animal Planet and "Kalahari Meerkats" on the YouTube channel... Continue Reading →

No Such Thing As Gennies

It's dark and the streetlamps deter much of the natural light from touching the ground, The wind is a faint whisper in the leaves and a gentle caress against your cheek, The hum of the city is a muted cacophony behind you As you walk along the curb, Balancing on the cement, The comforting weight... Continue Reading →

Shimmer’s Dream

Shimmer watched Hawk as he churned the sand with strong swipes of his paws. It was dawn at the Alphas burrow and Hawk and Shimmer were the first ones up. Shimmer was sunning herself with her dark-skinned stomach facing the sun while Hawk was tidying the burrow entrance.  Shimmer couldn’t help but admire him. He... Continue Reading →

Stay

There's a temple Over on the hill, It's so old that No one knows who Or what gods it was Devoted to. I'm the only one who visits, now. I grew up in the town That's in the shadow of That hill. I would stare at the temple From the square, And I would wonder... Continue Reading →

Haunted

Have you ever met a truly foreign thing? That follows you too close, That sends shivers down your spine, That refuses even to let you lie? It's cold breath constantly On the back of your neck, Clawed fingers running spirals up your arm And then trailing back down to your wrist? Whenever it's near you... Continue Reading →

Normal

I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I look and see all these normal people. They smile and talk as if they know each other, I mean really know. But how can that be? Aren't you afraid of the dark in their minds, The shadows the dance behind all of their eyes? Doesn't it... Continue Reading →

The Devil In A Box

Thump….inhale….thump….exhale…..thump...inhale….thump….exhale… I am alone in this room. My breath and my heartbeat my only companions. The walls are barren, The floor smooth and dull, The door a solid slab of concrete. Whoever designed this place must be a real fun person, I bet this person is named something like John and his face is etched... Continue Reading →

Scarlet’s Promise

Scarlet panted as she allowed Hawk to slump down in the shade of an acacia tree. His breaths were ragged and his eyes were closed. When Scarlet bent down to rub her cheek against his head, he didn’t acknowledge her touch. His skin was hot and clammy beneath his fur as the fever raged through... Continue Reading →

He Has No Eyes

The child watched the ice cream truck As it pulled to a stop on his block. High and jovial music rang from it's speakers on top. No other children came running. It was him alone. He approached the ice cream truck, A dollar clenched in his small fist, To get his ice cream cone. The... Continue Reading →

The Orlando Cat Café

532 Cagan Park Ave Suite 201-203, Clermont, FL 34714 I am currently on vacation in Florida with my family, yet I felt the need to get to work on this post. It started when I saw a digital billboard advertising a little coffee shop that features one of mans best and furry friends; cats. If... Continue Reading →

Hawk’s Courage

The male meer was bigger and heavier than him, but Hawk had one advantage: speed. The male lunged for his foreleg and Hawk ducked. The male lashed out with both paws and Hawk weaved. Hawk lived up to his namesake as he dodged and bucked, jumped and darted from side to side. He was a... Continue Reading →

Weed’s Vow

Weed tried to suppress the shaking, but against his wishes his whole body trembled. His heartbeat thundered in his ears, making it difficult to hear what Grace was saying. Today would be the Alphas first battle. Their family was growing and they needed to expand their borders. Foraging in the Outlands wasn’t an option and... Continue Reading →
