The Mine

“That’s strange, he’s not here.” Griffin mumbled. “Who’s not here boy?” Coffer asked. Griffin Kerry shook his head. “This is where Harold went down. I thought for sure his body would be here. We saw the spiders mob him and he went down.” Coffer scratched his chin. “That would be a terrifying sight, I can’t […]

The men started discussing how they might defeat the jackal spiders by doing this or that and at times their voices became very excited.

“Now all that’s left is to teach you how to fight.” Coffer said after she had choked down Jake’s curative. “If it will get my father back.” Emily replied. “Aye lass, you’ll get yer’ father back. He was my friend and its all any of us have thought about for these last few weeks. I […]

Emily wasn’t sure about getting on Mr. Coffer’s dog cart but her father’s boiler works was five miles outside of town. The old man was also the only one who seemed to know something about where her father might be. “Do you know where my father is?” She asked him. “Mr. Drake has gone off […]
