NBG Jump They Say
Karif tightened his grip on the bannister as he heard Reginald Wilkinson talking with his friends in the study downstairs. He was only thirteen and was small and spry, despite how much food Mrs. Wilkinson shoved down his throat. His golden skin stood out in this city of pasty, white men and his blue eyes took in more than his brain could fully understand of his new home. He had been sitting in the hallway for the last hour, listening and trying to understand. There was so much about this new country that didn’t make sense. Karif could only see the light emanating from the fireplace and spilling into the mahogany hallway, but their voices were crispy and clear.
“I tell you, he is startling intelligent,” said Reginald, “I’ve only been working with him for a year and he’s mastered the Shivian language and manners.”
“Come now, Reg, we’re not the review board. There’s no need to pull our legs,” said someone Reginald referred

Meeting with the Defender of Civilization
A copy of Quentin Jacobi’s interview with Police Chief Bernard Griffin, originally published in the Morning Star Post in Cadere 19th, 1824
Meeting with the Defender of Civilization
We meet in his busy office, aides bustling in and out with no notice of me. Bernard Griffin is surrounded by smoke, having taken my cigarette with forced gratitude. He stares me down, clearly wanting me to wrap up an interview that hasn’t even started. It is quite clear that the war against the Ilkhatal Freedom Movement (IFM) can’t stall for even a moment. Of course, his steely eyed stare and inexhaustible energy is why Bernard Griffin was brought in from the Ignis Desert to bring law and order back to the Shivian Hills. The limited time I spent in his presence made it clear that he plans to break the IFM or die trying.
Quentin Jacobi: You were brought from the Ignis Desert, six months ago, to deal with the ‘Killer Problem’, but your tenure in the desert was a brutal one. You pe

Five Years: And the World Kept Spinning
“Do you ever think about the fact that the world didn’t end?” asked Enric, pouring himself a scotch.
“Give it time,” drawled Daniel, reading the news on his smartpad.
Enric smirked and shook his head.
“I’m serious. Do you ever think about it?”
“I think it depends on what you mean,” said Walter, “There have been many near apocalyptic moments in earth’s history.”
“World War III, geniuses,” said Enric, leaning against the bar, “The worst moment in human history, the moment of nuclear holocaust. And nothing.”
“There were close calls,” said Daniel.
“Of course, there always will be, but neither side actually pulled the trigger, even when all experts thought they would.”
“No, I guess I don’t spend too much time thinking about it,” said Walter.
“Really? I think about it all the time,” said Enric.
“Why?” asked Daniel, looking up.

Five Years: Hail to Their Ghosts that Remain
“Hey, Walter, do you have a minute?” asked Max, rubbing his neck as he hovered in the doorway.
“Sure, come in,” grinned Walter, turning in his chair, “Beer?”
“Uh, sure, thanks,” Max shrugged, taking it gratefully and looking for a place to sit.
“Use Adrian’s chair, he won’t mind.”
Max grabbed the hard-cushioned chair, sat down, and frowned at how stiff it was.
“Adrian doesn’t believe in comfort,” Walter smirked.
“You’re telling me,” said Max, as the chair softened underneath him.
“Just make sure you set it back to its original setting, otherwise I’ll never hear the end of it.”
Max nodded his head before taking a swig of beer as Walter watched him closely. It was hard to remember how young he truly was. Only twenty-four and able to keep up with Sebastian, Celestyn, and Anatoli and Sebastian was grooming him to take over once the transfer occurred. He wondered if

NBG There's Blood on the Hands of Us All
“What are you doing here?!” snarled Caroline, the mourning crowd following the casket as it stumbled down the sparse road.
“I’m here to pay my respects to a great hero.”
She smacked me.
“How dare you?! You didn’t even leave me a body to bury.”
I rubbed my jaw before clicking my tongue and staring her down.
“I’m assuming the Shivians knew a body could lead to martyrdom.”
“Yes, and there’s only room for one martyr in the Killbraugha.”
I frowned.
“Surely that is a topic best reserved for after the funeral.”
“Go away. You are not welcomed here.”
“We may have had our differences, but he was still a comrade in arms.”
“You continue to disgrace this funeral with your lies and they’ll be burying two bodies today.”
My frowned grew, but she was like the Kanas Mountains. Cold, distant, and refusing to bend to the screaming winds. A statue of black marble, her mo

Pepper-the-phoenix's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Literature
Hi, I’m Sam, also known as Ham. I'm an extreme history nerd (seriously six bookcases full of history books) and a comic book geek. I am very spacey and it can take me a while to reply, but it's not because I hate you, it's because I'm lazy.

I am also co-founder of SKTH Productions, a multi media company.

My siblings, :iconinprismed: :iconjeffreyrebowlski: and I work on a lot of projects together.

No-on-amazon by JeffreyRebowlski

You can find all three books on Amazon!




I know I've been MIA lately and I'm sorry about that. Grad school is slowly killing me. I have two more intense weeks and hopefully I'll be able to get to those critiques I owe people.
