SCS(CP): When All Peace is Gone..

*Chapter Eight* I heard a shriek.. No, It was more like a wail.. One that hurt my head because it was so loud.. It took me several moments to realize the wretched cry came from the depths of my own broken body, mind, and soul. My vision blurred, everything taking a hazy yet rosy hue…

SCS(CP): Peace, Be Still..

*Chapter Seven* A little more than a week had past, with only four days left for me to deny or accept Ramon’s proposal. I wouldn’t be able to have contact with Yurika till the end of the month, long past my deadline, so I could expect no help from her. Peace kept telling me to…

SCS(CP): Trial and Error

*Chapter Two* I ran down the corridor, as the dreadfully haunted chanting of multiple ominous voices pierced the air behind me. They weren’t speaking any language I knew, and that would be ten. I had been fluent in English, Russian, Cantonese and Mandarin; as well as Japanese, and Latin since my early childhood and preteen…

SCS(CP): A Tower in the Sky

  * Chapter One *   It was about thirty minutes to last call, when I gracelessly stumbled my way out of the VIP balcony section, and all my hard partying throughout the night had finally caught up to me. I felt the oncoming negative effects of my indulgence approaching and I wanted to leave…
