“What do we do now?” Heather asked softly. The question was mostly to herself.

“What do you mean? You’re the one who wanted to come out here.” Janus’ voice had a bit of scolding in his voice.

Heather’s cheeks flushed. “Just…thinking out loud to myself, I suppose.”

She straightened her posture a bit and went forward, coming to the edge of the well. It had aged, covered with a bit of moss and lichens. The mouth was six feet across, cobblestone cemented together. Heather gripped the mouth, looking over.

The well went down a ways, but she could make out a puddle reflecting light out on the bottom. The walls also seemed to narrow but didn’t match up with the dirt that was barely visible.

The dull roar of moving wind filled Heather’s ears. She shivered a little, looking for some point of reference to orient herself. All she could see where rocks and narrow passageways. An eerie amber glow was everywhere, emanating from a hole in the wall. It was too far and small for her to reach in to see what it was though.

Still, she tried. Heather tiptoed and stuck her hand in, trying to reach the strange object without success.

As she tried to stretch further, a low groan reached her ears. Her frantic eyes looked about and saw a large dark form crawling towards her…

Some hours had passed, and the family had left Heather alone in the living room. The room was barely illuminated by the embers in the fireplace, the wind still howling outside. Heather shivered despite the quilt given to her, still fearing the worst.

There’s still time. I can make it home! Heather crept as quietly as she could off the couch, pushing her coverings aside. She slipped off her shoes and tiptoed across the floor towards the parlor.

“It’s pitch black out there. I need some sort of light,” she told herself. Heather’s eyes glanced around the entryway for where the family stored their lamps. Her eyebrows furrowed in frustration upon finding none, making her way into the kitchen. She found a box of matches at least, finally finding an old miner’s lamp near the door to the cellar.

Hey guys, hope your week is going well!

I’ve been working on this for a little bit, and I am now unveiling this for release. I’m starting a weekly blog serial that you guys can enjoy¬† – for free!

Set in the same universe/setting as “Voyage Across the Endless Sky”, the story follows after Heather, a young woman who’s had a painful background and is looking for someplace to plant her own two feet. Haunted by the nightmares of her past, she starts to grow close to the main character cast, primarily Elizabeth, Janus and Tau’mi. (A more detailed info page will be up within the week regarding character names and backgrounds, so keep an eye out for that!)

The series is variety, sometimes happy go lucky, sometimes horrific and spine-chilling. The story is more of a fiction piece similar to my Michiko Bates book, but each installment does feature an illustration in style of the Endless Sky storybook! That way you get the best of both worlds.

The first episode will unveil Friday Feb 5th, and will be released every Friday from then on. Each “story” lasts approximately 4 episodes, so each month brings a new tale.

Enjoy, and have a great week!

This piece was a big jump for me, because I pumped it out in one evening on my newly owned Cintiq tablet. I was so happy with how it turned out, though looking back at it I have a long ways to go to translate my better skills to the digital medium.

 

I don’t know where I quite got the idea for this, but the idea came from watching some recent Youtube videos from the Youtuber known as Markiplier. Specifically his playthroughs for the game Mad Father and Witch’s House. I guess that rubbed off from somewhere.
