The Wraith King

When you are overwhelmed by feelings of hatred, anger and a deep despair as the temperature plummets, darkness covers the world in a thick blanket, and an eerie silver mist swirls around your home: be on your guard and remember: there are tales of the wraiths; then there are legends. Powerful in mind and body, broad of shoulder, a muscular physique and standing at six feet tall with long black hair falling in waves to the waist with almond shaped eyes as black as a stormy night at sea, I am a legend. A formidable immortal warrior, unbeaten in battle, roaming your world in the hope of finding my beloved wife.

My search has ended.

Pure, and untainted by malice and envy, this tiny child is beautiful; beyond my expectations. Though I sensed the old witch’s presence, I deigned not to respond.

“Find me Rhiamon. Bring me back.”

My powers spiralled when Ela begged, “Rhiamon, please don’t leave us.”

As my image flickered then vanished, Rhiamon’s eyes snapped open. ‘How can you beg me to stay when my husband is calling me.”

“In your first life maybe, but not now. Enzai is dead: in life he was a selfish being with little regard for our people. You are twelve years old: neither child nor woman. If he takes you into the wraith world, our people will cease to exist. The witch won’t be able to bring you back again. Rhiamon, your destiny as the great queen is to lead us to safety. Please don’t deny us again.”

I love creating stories; in many ways since I returned to the UK in 2015, it has taken over my life. Until recently, I ran a blog covering my journey through research through writing/editing/publishing my first novel but I discovered that one my somewhat unusual short stories had been "plagarised", I deleted all the content and closed the blog. Something I now regret but regrets are pointless. I recently changed the Eldern Journals from three full length novels to six shorter novels. The books have been extensively revised and I have compiled a book of short stories, title: How Bizarre. Hopefully, when I manage to sus out how to publish my books on KDP, the books should be published before the end of 2022. Getting back into writing articles on my website may take a little longer as it has been so long since I last visited the site. TTFN, for now.
