    Summary

    “I did not want to see you again so soon, Mr. Kennedy,” Death said – for that was who she was, Archie realized as her fingers stilled over a particular area, just above his neck. Instinct made him shy away from her touch even though it did not hurt. But it should. Something told him that it should hurt – he just couldn’t remember why.

    “What happened to me?” he asked, raising his own hand to touch the tender spot that echoed with pain that was no longer there.

    Death’s smile grew sad. “Someone hurt you.”

    Five times Archie Kennedy met Death and lived to tell the tale, and one time Death saved his life.

    Summary

    William Bush's road of life would seem to have ended at Caudebec.

    Or did it?

    Bush grapples with metaphysics, friendship, and a very exasperated angel of death — at least, he thinks that's who he's talking to.

    Summary

    “Well ya see, the capt’n has gone into heat sir.”
    Bush looked like someone had stricken him across the face, “what? That’s impossible, how dare-”
    This time Styles cut him off, “It’s true sir. I wouldn’t have believed it either but it’s true as day. I just carried him up here and everything.”
    Bush looked star struck, “no, omega’s aren’t even allowed to join the Navy! I don’t believe you. If this is a mockery I swear to-”
    Matthews sighed again, he was doing that a lot lately, “Sorry sir, but just take a breath. You said so yourself that you smelled something sweet.”

     

    I suck and titles and summaries but hopefully the story is fun.
