Tales of Sheffield

Chapter 1: Old Town New Rules

The light pitter patter of the rain tumbled down the brick roof of the Sheffield bookstore known as Sheffield Read and Watch. The dark clouds surrounding the tops of the shops within the small town, the drops of the rain rolling down the gutters into the drainage systems. Time seemed to pass by slow, ticking … Continue reading Chapter 1: Old Town New Rules

Chapter 2: The Note

Chapter 3: A Cold Dark Place

A soft chilling wind rolled through a concrete room, sending a shiver down Lynn Carmichael’s spine. Rope rubbed against her wrists causing a slight rash to break out on her skin.

Chapter 7: Inside the Belly of the Snake

Ophiuchus briskly walked down the hall and into his makeshift office space he had in the secure location. He opened up the door and shut it behind him. His eyes had looked around the room and saw the wooden table that he used as his desk along with the matching armchair. He made his way over to his seat slowly and sat down.

He folded his hands together as he thought about the time he had joined the Sheffield Snakes, then going up the ranks to eventually become their leader. He had inherited the name Ophiuchus or as he liked to be called by those less intelligent than him, Ophi was the name he went by. The nickname for the leader of the Sheffield Snakes had been made when it was first founded. The founders thought it appropriate to name the leader after the Greek constellation of the Snake Charmer as the group was personified as snakes and the leader be appley named.
