Author has written 58 stories for General, Fantasy, and General.

Sharp eyes and tight smiles following down the emotionally fucked up family blood. Don't look closer, I might tear your eyes out. I'm a loser, baby, so why don't you kill me?

Fear cuts deeper than swords.

I feel numb in this kingdom...

I don't want to belong, to you, to anyone...

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me.

Thanks for reading...K.-

Late reviews
"Who's to blame? The sad boy with tears too heavy to fall, the angry boy with not a minute to waste: the sky did not smile upon you, not even on rainy days...I'd hold you to it, watch you hang the stars around my window, but it's a waste."
