(FINAL) Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 6 By C.J. Quince

The winds cascaded down the hill.  Stephen had finally made it to the wild north, Scotland.  His months of travelling around Europe had shown him much, yet only fragments rise to the surface.  His previous summer had been spent in England, like so many former Commonwealth travellers he’d centred his time around London.  Now, finally,Continue reading “(FINAL) Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 6 By C.J. Quince”

Three times that damned alarm had gone off.  Everyone in the hostel was either awake or pretending they weren’t.  It was eight in the morning, and the alarm had started at six.  It wasn’t clear what was causing the disruption.  It didn’t really matter, Stephen reflected, as long as it stopped.  Nevertheless, as bleary eyedContinue reading “Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 5 By C.J. Quince”

‘What are you nuts?’ The young German woman cried in protest.  ‘That’s just stupid.’  Her comments left little ambiguity as to her feelings. The French man, clean cut and easily offended, objected to his companion’s comments with gusto.  The English woman, several years their senior, cut in. ‘You’re both wrong-‘ and on it went.  It seemedContinue reading “Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 4 By C.J. Quince”

Stephen passed a billboard as it flickered from an image of a naked woman wearing nipple tape and a g-string (he thought it was an ad for teeth whitening but couldn’t be sure).  A trailer began to play for the latest film on Disney’s Amazon streaming service^.  The latest Avengers reboot was a remake ofContinue reading “Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 2 By C.J. Quince”

Stephen moved through the winding streets of dank ground and puddles illuminated by neon lights from a small selection of the rainbow.  Something scampered by, it could have been a rodent, but with the proliferation of wild cats across Europe, it was more likely a feline in search of prey.  He moved a little faster,Continue reading “Tales of a future backpacker – Series 1- Episode 1 By C.J. Quince”

Nameless – Series 1 – Part 6 (Final)

Rhys had seconds before he would face either the mysterious woman or the ravenous force of creatures hurtling up the fire stairs.  With odds like that, it was a simple choice.He turned and didn’t need his sense to see her.  She stopped in the dark hallway, watched him like he was prey, cornered.  She maintainedContinue reading “Nameless – Series 1 – Part 6 (Final)”

Nameless – Series 1 – Part 5

Rhys slipped past the two guards.  They were the same he’d seen almost twenty-four hours prior and still as tense.  But they were strung out, getting sloppy.Rhys had taken over from Yun at midnight, as agreed.  The night had yielded enough intelligence to add to Yun’s observations.  The front entrance was being used for legitimateContinue reading “Nameless – Series 1 – Part 5”
