The Journey of a Soul

"Should I?" I wondered, as I walked out of the viewing circle and towards my soul mate. He opened his arms and I stepped into his embrace, comforted by his presence. I knew beyond anything else that he truly cared for me, and I could see how worried he was for me.

"How long is this mission?" Aidan asked.

"Eighty-Seven years and twelve days; Earth time, of course,"
I said.

"Just a drop in the hat for us, love," Aidan said, gently stroking my arms, sending a thrill of comforting feelings washing through my body.

"I know, but I wish there was a way to take you with me. Even when I'm looking eternity in the face eighty-seven earth years seems like an excruciating time to be without you." Tears were filling my eyes now but I willed them away.

"It's not what fate has permitted," Aidan said, his blue-gray eyes shining down on me.

"It just sounds miserable," I sighed.

"You'll be back in my arms before you know it," he said, but as the words left his mouth he was staring at the portal that was growing brighter by the second. I knew he was afraid that I would also be lost in the life of the new era, and the thought sent panicked gusts of oxygen through my diaphragm. I had to change the subject.

"My favorite mission will always be 1912," I said, and I could feel my own starry eyed expression as I stared up at him.

"Ah, mine too, love." They were hard times, but it was a much more simple time that what you are going into now."

"It was better because we were together in that life. Will you watch me this time?" I asked, hopefully.

"Of course; I'll watch you every second. I'm proud of you darling. It will be hard to watch you loving someone else, while I'm on this side loving you - wanting you - and knowing that I can't have you. It will be hard watching you search for something that's missing knowing that thing is me, knowing you'll never find what you're looking for. I'll watch you struggle knowing that I can only help you a small amount from this side," Aidan said, melting my heart.

"Thank you," I said. "The others need me, they're lost." I added, implying that I would never leave him without very good reason.

The light of the portal had morphed his eyes into two glowing orbs. He smoothed my raven colored hair, and the look on his face faded my aura.

"Sweetheart," I said, my voice sounding pitifully weak.

"Millicent, I know you are strong; you're stronger than even you know, and when this life is over we can rejoice once again.

"Indeed," I answered.

I walked over to the portal dread filling me, but joy knocking on the door to my heart. Help is coming my beloved, you are not in this alone.

I stepped through the portal and was sent spiraling into a dark tunnel. My head, my body was squeezed tight. I couldn't move and the cold was ascending on me. The freezing sharp sting of the cold hit my scalp first, and that's where it stayed until it shot over my entire body engulfing me.

I screamed, as the cold set my skin into an icy fire. I was gagging and choking as beasts of Earth shoved devices into my mouth and nose. They poked and cut at me and the entire time I was freezing and screaming and grieving for the love I was missing in eternity.

Through the agony I heard Molly's sweet voice.
"Her name is Millicent," she said, and as Aidan faded from my mind I knew that my mission had begun.

Little Girl

Little girl how you like to be bad

Little girl how you make me so mad

Little girl for your future your care is so small

Little girl I doubt you care at all

Little girl your decisions hurt

Little girl so do the words that you blurt

Little girl your choices are shady

Little girl you should act like a lady

Little girl your hurting I understand

Little girl don't throw away your life for a man

Not the one that raised you

Not the one that lifts you off your feet

Not the ones that do what you do

Not any of the ones you meet

Little girl he's just a boy

Little girl he's not a toy

Little girl he's dangerous you'll see

Little girl don't end up like me

Little girl I tried to warn you

Little girl, I was little once too

Hailey's Dream

I was reading a fictional book about Summerland, a place where all your wildest dreams are at your fingertips, all you have to do is think about it, and then I fell asleep. I had a dream, and in my dream I was meeting my animal spirit, which just so happened to be the blackbird. 

I was surrounded by darkness and all I saw was a door, so I walked through it. There was a dirt path lined by trees on both sides. There was thick vegetation to the left and to the right there was a clearing. In the clearing there was a pond, a white bull, and grassy fields. I, of course think that dreaming of a white bull is pretty cool considering I'm a Taurus!

I was instantly drawn to the pond and when I dipped my hand into the water I was sucked in. I clawed my way to the surface and out when I heard a voice say, "Hailey, stay away from the water, it's bad."

It's not the first time I've heard this voice, when I was a child I still remember this voice from a dream that I had. It told me to wake up and that I had the power to control my dreams.

Was this my blackbird?

Has he been with me that long?

Even as I asked the question in my mind I hear his haunting, but comforting response. 

"So much longer."

My journey through Shakespeare

Right now I am reading Edward the Second and wish I had better insight into the vocabulary! 

Tis treason to be up against the king (It treason to go against the king)

So we shall have the people of our side (getting fuzzy, but we shall have our friends?)

For which his father's sake lean to the king (our friends will be chummy with the king to cover us)

but cannot brook a nightgown mushroom (wtf)

lol, maybe I'll catch on...I'm liking the story but it's not coming easy!!!

This short story is from a writing challenge on Webook. I had to create a world and end it in 300 words or less:

Writing Challege - Rules: Create a world and destroy it in 300 words. 
Here is my short story!

Beyond the Ice Flowers

Kava Koto was one of the most amazing places that I had ever seen. It was one of the three planets in the tri-sphere universe. They served as Earths vacation destinations, until Earth's demise in the year 2518. At one time it was considered our salvation, but could soon be yet an alternative ending to a tragic story, one that's fate has proven to be inevitable.

When you look beyond the ice flowers and crystal blades that line the ground of this cold planet and stare into the darkened sky you see what my ancesters on Earth called a volcano. It's beauty was only matched by it's danger. The entire planet could be obliterated by one large enigma stemming from it's core. The very same thing that provides warmth to the natives and allows them to live here could kill them in seconds with it's first and only eruption.

Bundled in my coat I watched as the Kotians gathered around the base of the volcano watching with an ease that made me cringe. It was the ease that someone had when they had accepted their fate and their death, which as of yet I hadn't done.

The humans were boarding a ship to leave the planet and had strongly urged the Kotians to do the same which they tragically refused. This was their planet and if it was going to die they would die with it. The volcano would soon spit lava and rage with anger melting the planet and it's inhabitants.

As our ship flew into space I looked back to see a bright red river explode into the air and I knew it was all over for my friends the Kotians. I closed my eyes and said goodbye to my ice cold friends with tremedously warm hearts.

When Love Dies

I'd like to share  a poem from my new book with my members...

When Love Dies

When love dies, there’s no place to rest,
No bed, no ditch, no tree, no nest.
Your body’s a prison that won’t let you out,
To love, to cherish, to hug, to shout.

Your mom she drank, your dad he died,
When that happened, you remembered; you cried.
Never again your brain did say, will I stress out on a horrible day,
I won’t let it happen, I’ll keep my heart tucked away.

Behind lock and key for all of its life,
my body’s a zombie, I’m no kind of wife.
How to revive my once beating heart,
So that love can come in and my life can restart.

God is the locksmith to break the chains
Of all of the stains that have cause me much pain.
Now that I can feel this place is so scary
But love beats fear, so let’s love, and not be wary.

~Katie Hughart~

I'm giving you the sneak preview of my cover for Wolf's Run along with a snip from my upcoming book! I'm pushing to get this book out this year so you may see it my fall! :)

                                              Picture by Beobeyond, cover by Katie Hughart
Snippet from The Wilderness - copyright2012

My dream started out where I was just wandering through the forest and the large moon was peeking through the branches. A n enormous gate appeared before my eyes. My ring was glowing its serene blue color and when I accidentally slid it across one of the gate’s golden bars the gate opened. I entered the world beyond the gate and explored. After a while I noticed a fog began to creep in and through it I saw her.
