    The Resistance Series: Egoist’s Lead Singer

    Takashi Sui glanced around once more. He’d been sure that he had heard soldiers but they were nowhere in sight.  Stepping from the shadow of an old building in Ward 2 of the Kanto region, Sui made his way through the desecrated temple. The ruins appalled him but that did little to halt his progress. He had no time to mourn the loss of his country. He needed to return to the ‘Burrow’ before night set; and he was currently being tracked by some livid foreigners. That was to be expected, considering the contraband that currently sat tucked in his right breast pocket. He had been exiting the black market…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 7

    As the bell rang, signaling the end of Lisanna’s first day, Lance took her hand and guided her through the hallways towards the front gate. He hadn’t been kidding about maintaining an image, as he’d changed his attitude and demeanor before leaving the comfort of the roof, and she now walked beside a much more intimidating figure. His appearance hadn’t really changed much, he now wore a tie that had earlier been cast aside, but he exuded an aura of power. They walked through crowded hallways, a sea of people parting to let them pass.  It was evident that the group was always together and Lisanna imagined it looked like…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 6

    The entire situation was absurd, Lisanna thought to herself as she followed around the Student Council Vice-President, Takashi Imoto. She’d lost her scholarship over a part-time job she no longer had. Apparently, according to the dying geezer at her old school, working throughout the school week was prohibited for scholarship students. Lisanna felt bitter. If that was the case then she should have at least gotten a warning. Instead, she now walked through the halls of Normanth, delinquent central. She’d heard the rumors about this school, as had most of the country. Tuition was ridiculously cheap but, in exchange, they accepted students who had nowhere else to go. In terms,…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 5

    Hayden was beyond infuriated. Upon arriving at Lisanna’s apartment, he discovered that she had packed up her few belongings and left earlier that day. Not only had she run but, according to her neighbors, she’d been with two men. Hayden’s blood boiled at the thought. He suddenly wished that he would have put a leash on her sooner. It was not finding her that would be a problem; he was just aggravated that he had to waste his time with such a meaningless task.  As he returned to his vehicle he pulled out his cell, dialing his friend at the police station to put out an APB on Lisanna. The…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 4

    Hayden had been practically beaming with excitement all day. It was more than unusual and a few associates could have sworn they saw the beginnings of a smile playing at his lips. The people at his Tokyo branch hadn’t known how to react. He’d never been a man who shared his emotions and many argued whether he had them. Even more shocking had been when Hayden had bounded out the door early claiming he had an important meeting. There was nothing on the schedule for that afternoon and the rumors quickly filled the office of the boss’s “new mistress”. Hayden climbed in the car and sped towards his destination, knowing…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 3

    The sun had begun setting, a delicate glow cast across the hood of the car as they pulled into the small lot of the waterside restaurant. Hayden looked pleased with himself, leading Lisanna’s graceful form through the large double doors and over to a waiter who quickly escorted them to the back of the restaurant where a wooden dock looked out over the sea. The gentleman held a menu to Lisanna but Hayden brushed it away and placed their orders, not allowing her a chance to even glance at the menu. He honestly doubted she would order anything but water if she saw the prices.  Lisanna should have been aggravated…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 2

    Lisanna’s feet dangled from where she now rested at the bar. She sighed. Hayden had, once again, been on her mind. To be honest, he hadn’t really left there. He’d somehow engrained himself into every thought she’d had for this past week, making it extremely difficult to focus on anything other than the man who’d saved her. His image was burned into her mind; his touch still scorched her skin. He consumed her being. Not because he had seemed like a prince on a white horse when he’d rescued her, which he had, but because he seemed to be everywhere lately.  Since the incident, he’d returned to visit her at…

    3hree is WAR – Chapter 1

    Lisanna glanced at the clock once more, trying to muster the energy to return to work. Her break had been over for almost five minutes and yet she had not moved from her position in the break room. It was Sunday and she had a million things to do upon returning home. Her three page essay on Commerce in the United States was due the following morning and, so far, she’d only managed to write her name on the paper. She wanted to cry. Glancing at the clock once more, she sighed. If it was possible to stop time, Lisanna would already have willed the night to freeze, giving her…

    3hree is WAR – Prologue

    The concept of loving someone was foreign to Hayden. He’d grown up without a mother to show him compassion, without a father to teach him respect, and without a family to correct his faults. It may sound strange, but it was the truth that Hayden was alone. In a way, his very existence was cursed; and yet, he was blessed. He had never struggled to survive, never gone without.  His father was the Chairman and CEO of Aberdine Corp.; a cognitive, neurobiological, and genetic research facility based out of Minato, Japan and his mother was a local idol named International Model of the Year for two years running. When his…

    HASTE – Chapter 3

    The Takahashi household was eerily silent that night. Yousuke had gone to meet up with a potential choreographer for their upcoming tour and Angelo was on a date with his newest girlfriend, a young woman from the studio they had recorded at earlier today. Tao had locked himself up in his room in preparation for his exams in a few weeks, so there was no telling if they would see him again tonight. Kylee glanced to the corner where Shindou read a new volume of Vampire Knight in silence and then to Hayden who was unenthusiastically playing a round of Team Fortress 2. She couldn’t be sure but it seemed…
