Once Upon a Dragon
Anything is possible with a little Magic
Jeremy Owens and his older siblings want to believe in magic,
but hope and belief are difficult things to hold onto
even when you’re a child. After the loss of their parents,
three young children find themselves fostered off
on an Aunt who’s never known the love of a child.
This Christmas will the Owens children find out
what it means to believe again?
Anything is possible with a little magic.
Twenty minutes. It had taken twenty minutes to get all of their bags down the train deck and piled next to Lennai’s car. That was with her helping. What in blue-blazes did these children bring with them? And where am I going to put all of it? Not to mention how in the world am I going to get it and them back to my house? In this little car? The mound of luggage stood higher than the top of Lennai’s car and she was completely out of her league already.
“Need some help?”
Pen. Just his name brought a swarm of relief that Lennai would never be able to explain to anyone. Today, of all days, she was happy to see him. Again.
“You have no idea,” she stated, a smile of thanks filling her eyes even as it spread across her lips.
She watched Pen make quick work of filling the back of his old Dodge pick-up with the mountain of bags that were the children’s belongings. She watched the way the afternoon light caught Pen’s dark hair. How easily he seemed to get along with the children; already laughing and joking with the eldest boy, Tyler, and the little one, Jeremy. For one brief moment her heart ached for all the emptiness that had been her life.
“Can we ride back to your house with Pen?” Tyler asked, his voice hopeful, his eyes bright.
“Yeah, can we Aunt Lennai?” This from Jeremy who was tugging on her sweater, looking up at her with the same bright, brown eyes that were an exact match for her brothers’.
“It’s fine with me,” Sam stated. “I’ll ride with you.”
Lennai blinked, trying to take it all in. When had her like became so crazy? Oh, yes. Today.
“I guess so,” she told them hesitantly. “That is, if it’s ok with you, Pen?”
“Sure, I don’t mind. Besides, don’t think there’s much room in your car anyway.”
Lennai turned and looked at her little Geo which was loaded down from floor to roof with what apparently were all of Sam’s belongings. The back end had actually sunk a good two inches and she was wondering if they’d even make it down the road from the weight.
“It’ll be fine, Lenni,” Pen said, as if reading her thoughts. “Come on boys. Adventures await.” Then he lifted up Jeremy into the cab.
“Oooh, what’s this?” Jeremy questioned as he hung out the side of the truck, a shiny rock in his hands.
“Don’t worry, Lenni,” Pen whispered, taking Lennai by the shoulders and pointing her in the direction of her car. “You’ll do just fine. You’ll see.”
“Glad you’re so all fire sure of things,” she muttered. “You borrow some of Merlin’s magic? Get yourself a crystal ball?”
Pen shrugged. “Maybe.” Then he winked at her and walked away.
“That there is a dragon’s egg, little Jeremy. So don’t squish it.”
“A dragon’s egg? Will it make a magical dragon? Where’d you get a dragon’s egg anyway? Can you get me a magical dragon?” Jeremy rapidly questioned, each word dripping with the excitement and exuberance of youth.
Lennai grunted. Magical dragons.
Sam snorted. Magical dragons.
Tyler laughed. “Whoever heard of eggs that hatched magical dragons?”
A Cornwall Christmas
A Christmas the Vancouver vampires will never forget
Even vampires celebrate the holidays. Marcus and Kelly wake up Christmas morning with their own extraordinary presents for the other, one of them being blowing up of the kitchen. In an effort to appear more human, the Cornwall’s plan an extravagant dinner, with all the trimmings and more. Differences are put aside; the Council and Covens come together to show that this time of year is only for good tidings.
A Future Holiday
Two war-weary galactic defenders rekindle their romance when
Armistice corresponds with the holiday season.
In a future society, two lonely fighters return from war. Rorn T’Kar is the commander of an Earth ship
which has been battling in space for eight long years. He once loved Lyra Dench, but she apparently
found his presence tedious. Lyra couldn’t tell Rorn she’d joined the Infiltration Corps, which
unfortunately had an eighty-percent mortality rate. She was ordered to keep her actions secret
and knew Rorn would try to keep her from fighting to save Earth.
When Armistice finally comes and coincidentally corresponds with the holidays,
the magic of the season takes over. Rorn and Lyra meet again, at the end of the war, and find
what they thought they’d lost…all by the light of a Yule tree.
