  • Life's Basic Needs

    The peach cobbler was sweet, much like his hasty retreat from the scene of the robbery. He had to get rid of the jewels faster than he’d devoured the pie. He’d made sure to steal only one ring, one necklace, and one set of diamond earrings ...

  • Thief in The Night

    People always hide things in the last place you’d think to look. So that’s exactly where I go first when I enter a house. Money can be hidden in the fridge, kitchen cabinets, closets, anywhere but a piggy bank or safe. Of course, if I see t...

  • One Last Detail

    “So where’d ya get it?” He said as he lifted his chin a degree, pointing at the magazine I had placed on the table between us. I shrugged and tried to sound cavalier. “I’m a thief.” He smiled and sipped his coffee, a...

  • Next Breed of Thief

    The streets were neon lit to high noon; still not many dared travel them after dark. Only a disturbance would arouse a few from their ports. I stood in a dim alley, the breeze blowing the ends of my long trench coat about my ankles. There were some act...

  • Thief

    I can do and see things no one else can, but instead of wasting it doing good, I do it for my own personal gain, because I like having money and power. I guess you can say I’m a thief, one of the best I’m sure and a junior at Fearless High....

  • 27: Still Missing

    Delta sat with her nose inches away from the music box, staring at it, as if sheer force of will could make it open. She should have known that Carl would have rigged it with some ridculous locking mechanism. Perhaps she had been a little hasty in kill...

    “You’ve returned?” Gerard asked without turning around. “I was curious what you were looking for,” the cat burglar said. “You said something about ‘richer game’. I thought it might be worth investigating....

  • The Door At The End Of The Hallway

    “This will be easy. I can handle this.” The thief confidently and carefully checked the door for traps; drop-blades and hidden dart shooters were pretty common proactive anti-burglar devices and his party of three had already encountered a ...

  • More Powerful than Weak

    I hit the ground hard and wiggled my way through the brush, wincing each time mercury shot exploded nearby. I hoped Roger found cover on his side. The snipers were shooting blind but they only had to hit one of us to slow us down. How in the world had ...

  • The Dream Thief of Stories

    Once I dreamed of a place, where wondrous beings of other worlds did mingle and their coin for trade was universal- a story. I sat in the market place nursing a drink and overheard the following: “We come from weird places, strange and distant, y...

  • Once a Thief?

    “Who are you?” Sara squinted in the dimness. “ Where are you? Late for what?” “So many questions for one so young.” A tall, orange-skinned male stepped into the light. His eyes glowed. “I am Grebl.” Sara staggered back, searching for th...

  • The Thief

    Hearing the alarm, the townsfolk gathered. “A thief came through here last night,” the sheriff said with urgency, “and I need some of you men to ride out with me to get back what was stolen.” The men raised their arms and pumped...

  • Soille

    She stole softly down the flag-stoned tunnel towards the light. Her raven feathered pelisse glimmering over the left shoulder of a short black, form-fitting, heavily brocaded & silver-buttoned military jacket. Her attire was completed with various ...

  • Twice The Glory

    After the drying process, the preservatives and the crude candle wedged between the fingers, the hand barely looked human. To Barney, it looked as if it had been cut from some shrivelled goblin, but he could sharply recall chopping it from the hanged c...

  • Stolen Goods

    He’d been so close, so very, very close. The Dragon’s Blood had been right there in his reach if he only would have been fast enough. He could have reached for it, but if he’d done so all eyes would have been on him at once. The Princ...

  • Jailcake

    A buzzer sounded, and a young, innocent-looking girl carrying a basket peered in. The prison guard, hiding his surprise, ushered her through. “Right this way, miss,” he said. “You have five minutes.” “Thank you sir!”...

  • The Less Glamorous Side of Dungeon Crawling

    Idly, I traced different pawprints into dust that had accumulated undisturbed for centuries. Forimus and Bedewin stood in the corner quietly arguing over which direction we should head next. Bedewin moved her hands in quick jerky arcs to emphasize her ...

  • The First Casualty is Innocence

    Blind rage; reliance on pure instinct. It had kept me alive through two tours in Iraq but could only be tragically misapplied here. As soon as I felt the pickpocket’s fingers going for my wallet, I had my weapon out and aimed. Thank god I hesitat...

  • The Stone Forest (Day 28)

    Jihn looked up at the pillars of pockmarked stone that towered over him and gulped. Legend said that this was once a great house of some sort and that the winds of time had filed away roof and walls. He didn’t think so. The pillars were clumped too c...
