Daily Dose Short Story
When winged paranormal Dante is injured in a demon attack, he faces certain death unless he can reach a healing spring just off the Pacific coast. With his strength waning and the demon poison infesting his system, the spring is his only hope. He never expects to find salvation in the arms of the property’s caretaker, a much younger man. Bren is fascinated by the beautiful winged man who arrives at his family’s sanctuary. He’s determined to save Dante’s life, but he’ll have to find a way to help Dante heal without infecting himself with the demonic poison, and time is running out.
Bren and his brother Owen are caretakers for a paranormal healing spa. One day a large winged creature (Dante) flies in, injured, to use the spa as he’s been wounded in a battle.
Besides finding the spa the perfect spot to heal, he also finds his mate in Bren. Together they take their LifeFlight, the first flight between mates.
Dante is a little older than Bren, both are over 30.
I loved this! It was short, but sweet, had fun world building, included a snarky brother(Pix/Owen), used lovely paranormal magicks, all in all simply wonderful.
The author really did a great job including so much with such a small word count! This is a great example of how a short story can really tell a big tale.
I really hope we see more of this world with dear Pixel as the MC.
