"The Deadline Before Christmas"
By Renee Scattergood

 
'Twas the night before Christmas, when on my laptop
Was an unfinished story, no better than slop; 
 
I let out a groan, threw my hands in the air,
Then stood, and I muttered as I paced ‘round my chair; 
 
The deadline was looming, oh that I did dread,
But worse, was the fact that I had been misled; 
 
A call interrupted, I was needed asap;
I went only to find that it had been a trap;
 
My friends said, “It’s Christmas, so come celebrate;”
Didn’t they see I was already late?
 
I tried to escape, but was met with backlash, 
So, I finally gave in, and I joined in the bash.

"Letters for the Circle"
by Allison D. Reid


“Get up, now!” Keran woke to find Torren from Tyroc’s castle guard standing over him. A dim glow of flickering torch light spilled in from the open door of his chamber. Despite the fact that Torren’s thick, curly beard masked much of his face, it couldn’t hide the intensity behind his eyes. Something was horribly wrong. His voice carried an urgency that dared not be disobeyed.

Show your fear on the outside, but know that I would never really hurt you. Do you understand?” Keran nodded with confused alarm. There was nothing about this that he understood.

Torren drug him out of the room and down the corridor at a near run. It echoed with the barks of orders being given, angry shouts, and the clash of steel against steel. They were soon joined by other men being marched forward; some peacefully, others at sword or spear point. Torren gripped Keran roughly by the back of the neck and held his blade at the ready, as though he expected Keran to fight him. And now Keran was beginning to grasp what was happening. But it couldn’t be true—how could it be true? The men of the Circle were being rounded up like prisoners; dragged from their beds, their stations, separated from their families and forced out into the night—to where, and to what end?
