    A Hand for a Kingdom

    "Thank you," Bran said, watching her. "I had not chosen the colors. Actually, when I obtained this castle, it was in ruins, and I have made some efforts to bring it back to what it was. It is not finished, but I do enjoy what has been accomplished so far." He turned and led her through the...

    "Charles, it is good to see you again," Bran greeted the steward as he walked forward. "You got everything ready?" The steward - another vampire - bowed low. "Of course, Sire! All to your specifications. I saw to every detail." "And likely got underfoot and annoyed the maids greatly, not...

    The Haunting of Tranquility Cove

    Barbara still felt wary of Theo, and she had no love for the dog, yet she found herself reaching out and gingerly patting his shoulder. "It's going to be okay, Theo. Dogs always come back home, right? And he seems pretty devoted to you. He must have just gotten distracted, that's all." She...

    "Yes, we will likely be staying for the winter," Bran assured her as the walls loomed closer. "You are welcome to explore the grounds as much as you wish, though I am afraid I will insist that you be always accompanied by two guards when you leave the safety of the castle walls. There is no...

    Bran gave a slight nod. "Yes. This will be our home for the next few months. There are four castles in Genevia, but this one has always been a favored of mine. I prefer to stay here during the spring and harvest months, primarily." It was common for a king to have more than one castle if...

    In the cartoon version of "Ghostbusters," Bill Murrey's character (Peter Venkman) is voiced by Lorenzo Music, the voice of Garfield in "Garfield and Friends." Bill Murrey then voiced Garfield in the CG/Live Garfield movie. Such a curious connection between fat cat and ghost hunter.

    The Haunting of Tranquility Cove

    Barbara wrapped her arms around herself, shivering. "Are you serious? The dog is gone?" She looked around. "We didn't hear any barking, right? And he'd bark if someone he didn't know tried to take him, so maybe he went after something on his own. Like a seagull." She started scrambling...

    A Hand for a Kingdom

    Bran turned to watch her babble, a bit surprised yet pleased at her strange nativity. Repay him? For everything he had done? Finally, he held up his hand. "Kezia," he said quietly, "you are my wife now, and I your husband. There is no debt to be held between husband and wife, certainly not...

    A Hand for a Kingdom

    Bran flicked his fingers lightly. "Many vampires - though not nearly all - are allergic to garlic the same way some people are allergic to..." He hesitated, seeking a comparison. "Peanuts, I suppose. That type of allergy. And, yes, they are also sensitive to the light." He smiled a little...

    Barbara looked around then shivered. "Let's get out of here. It's cold and... okay, fine, it's creepy. I'll admit it." She started climbing back up. "First, the eels. The eels could be a quote, unquote happy accident. Maybe the fishermen were right and it's something to do with tides or...

    Barbara ran a hand through her hair. "This is going to sound crazy, but hear me out. You've heard of sirens, right? The pretty ladies who are some kind of strange creature that lure people into the sea and drown themselves? Usually sailors. They call them into the water and drown them...

    "Vampires tend to think themselves superior, with is a bit of a detriment to them," Bran replied. "They were so busy thinking themselves better, they did not notice the werewolves and humans nearly wiping them out about two hundred years ago. They retaliated and managed to, ah, bring their...

    "Drugs, no, though I'd believe the hairspray," Barbara said, staring out into the water. She chewed her lip, thinking. "Yeah," she mumbled, answering Theo absently, "there's the whale festival... that's going to be a pain if I can't get my cameraman sane again." Suddenly, Barbara spun...

    "My mother was the only creature my father ever loved." He fell silent for a few minutes, remembering, but the pain was nowhere near as fresh for himself as it was for Kezia. Bran finally looked at her. "I think I should like to learn of you in time," he said calmly. "We may not have had the...

    "She was a fine woman," Bran said calmly. "Very practical, no nonsense, a survivor. You have to be strong if you are going to raise a child out of wedlock, particularly one not of your own race. She taught me how to hide what I was but not to be ashamed of it. I have known Nyx to cut off...

    Bran couldn't help the faint smile at her rather adorable awkwardness. "I do know my father," he confirmed. "I did not know him until late in life, but, yes, I know him. He is... an interesting character. I have no doubts you shall meet him eventually, but he is not one for social events."...

    "Of course." Bran took the bench opposite Kezia and looked out the window. The horses started off, and he could see lines of peasants eager to catch a glimpse of their king and new queen. He watched them quietly as the horses picked up speed, the carriage swaying gently, the shocks taking...
