Chapter 22

 

Luke slept fitfully that night, rose before dawn, and had a cup of coffee and a cigarette on the front porch before starting out in the fading dark. Sootie stayed on the porch, knowing somehow that Luke was on a solo mission. He hiked deep into his land, through the mesquite glades and the yucca patches, up and down the red-rock ravines. He knew when he’d reached the center of his land, a grassy spot that just felt right. Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 22

Chapter 21

Luke knew better than to press Sally that day or the next, when Cormick called a city meeting and informed the rest of the myth-folk community of the disappearances of Glen and Brent. He called ahead to make sure she would have time to talk with him before he showed up the next day after work.

He found her in the barn, reorganizing the feed room. He leaned against the doorframe and watched her for a minute, partly admiring her butt and partly working up the nerve to say something. Finally she turned around, a piece of hay in her hair and her hands on her hips. Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 21

Chapter 20

The next day, Luke drove up to Brent’s house after work, an old trailer in the same area as Orson’s–not so much a park as a side street that had slowly filled up with trailers. He stared at the 1980s-model single-wide over the top of his steering wheel, brow furrowed. If not for Glen’s disappearance, Brent’s absence from work that day would not have raised his hackles. The tinker fae was prone to bouts of both intense productivity, in which all other obligations would be forgotten in his fervor to finish some new project, and drunken stupor, a tear that could last a week if not checked. He never would have kept his job if the foreman wasn’t his cousin. Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 20

Chapter 19

There was no telling how many traffic laws Luke broke driving to Allison’s restaurant after work. By the time he got there, the sun was setting, and only Sally’s car was out front. He walked in to find Allison and Sally sitting in the far booth together, as smug and merciless as a cat with a whole nest full of canaries. Luke approached with caution.

“Hey girls,” he said. “Sooooo. How did things go with Mae this afternoon?” Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 19

Chapter 18

It was a few blessed days of peace before Luke saw Mae again. Orson reassured Luke he would get her out of town as fast as possible. He didn’t have a leash on her, though, so Luke was not surprised when Mae turned up at his work. Luke was bent over a board, planing it with a large electric sander, when he felt a surge of excitement and greasy, sickening, lustful energy pass through him. It was entirely unlike the playful, heartfelt yearning he picked up from Sally or the passionate abandon in Allison. No one else he had ever met could make lust feel as unwholesome and selfish as Mae. Across from him, Brent stood up and took off his safety goggles. Luke turned off the sander and stood also, knowing who would be behind him. Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 18

Chapter 17

Orson came through Luke’s front door without knocking. Luke was on the phone, and he waved as Orson gingerly set a heavy bag on the table.

“But I was thinking, what if it was just guys? No girls? Hello?”

Orson groaned as Luke stuck his cell phone in his pocket. “Tell me that wasn’t Sally.”

“I just wanted to see what she thought.” Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 17

“So then she sprayed me with the sink hose and left, all in a huff.”

Orson laughed, and Luke scowled. “You really don’t know anything about women, do you?” Orson said.

“I know plenty,” Luke said, slouching back into his couch with a petulant expression on his face and a beer set on his stomach.

“Psh, whatever. You’ve been soaking in your satyr magic too long to remember what it’s like to be a normal man. Sally don’t want to be seduced, Luke. She wants to be romanced. There’s a difference. And because it’s Sally, what she finds romantic is gonna be different than most girls.” Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 16

Chapter 15

Sally’s hands moved over Luke’s bare back as she clucked over the new scratches there. Her hands felt warm and soft, and Luke’s eyelids drooped. He was glad she was looking at his back and not at his lap. Then again, from the way a steady trickle of magical energy was making its way into him, maybe she would not have disapproved. The conversation kept him from inquiring too closely. Continue reading Capricious: Chapter 15

Chapter 14

 

After the chupacabras were dead, the dust settled slowly and reluctantly, as if it relished the sudden burst of activity and yearned for more. Only stray pebbles dribbled down the cliff, which was now unrecognizable. Luke stood and shook himself, sending a new cloud of dust into the air. His magic spent, he was a weary, sag-eyed version of himself. Orson caught him before he fell and looped his arm around Luke’s waist, draping Luke’s arm over his broad shoulders.

Chapter 13

 

Dawn and dusk were special times to the myth-folk, both in Fox Pass, Texas, and elsewhere. They were the in-between times–not quite day, not quite night. The myth-folk were almost mortal and almost eternal, not entirely human and not entirely magical, so their magic flickered a little brighter at sunrise and sunset, as if sensing a kinship with the changing light.
