Monday Free Fiction - Part 1

 A few goodies to start the day.  More to come/

• At Black Gate: “The Keystone - Part III of The Tales of Gemen" by Mark Rigney. Fantasy.
     "Velori shot awake, screaming, her legs a kicking flurry as she tried to free herself from her bedroll. Her alarm cries startled the mules, and they added their ear-splitting brays to the din. At the far side of their smoldering campfire, Gemen blinked himself to wakefulness, tried to sort out the torrent of sound, and began yelling for Velori to stop hollering. Only Dorvic remained silent."
