Hekate, Witch Queen and Goddess of Magick — Melody Wingfield

Friends of Dinlas

Hekate is an ancient goddess with pre-Greek roots traced to Anatolia and Thrace. Earliest accounts portray her as a bewitching young woman. Fierce and powerful, she was sovereign over land and sea and sky. The poets made her the daughter of the Titans Perses, Titan of Destruction by Fire, and Asteria, Goddess of the…

THE NIGHT'S TALES

I left the table and slipped another glass of champagne from a waiter’s tray as it glided by.

I better slow up on these or I’ll be all over Dinlas later, I thought as I took a sip. Then I shrugged.

There’s worse things to do tonight.

I could feel Hekate before I ever saw her, and I followed her magic to the center of the hall where she was surrounded by enraptured staff and a fascinated Viridios. A beautiful dagger rested in her hand, the handle fashioned in the shape of an ornate key. She twirled it around her finger, making some of the staff flinch horribly, until she tossed it in the air, high above their heads. A collective gasp came from the spectators, and it landed with a satisfying hiss into its sheath on her hip. Enthusiastic applause followed as Hekate took a swig of something dark…

A Primordial’s Tradition, III (Rewrite) — VOICE OF THE NIGHT

Nyx’s 2019 Yule Celebration continues as she pampers those she loves with gifts, and more importantly, her love.

“Neith!” I almost felt bad trying to catch up to the doe-eyed goddess; her attention was fully on the goddess standing beside her in a beautifully sparkling gown, reminiscent of the celestial bodies. Neith finally looked over and flashed me a radiant smile, looking stunning in her own golden dress that hugged her curves. I […]

THE NIGHT'S TALES

Dolos’ easy laugh fell on my ears as I approached him, his sister standing beside him with a grin on her face and a dark twinkle in her eyes. They turned to me simultaneously as I came within earshot, and I couldn’t help but smile. Though they are far grown and mature by now, it was hard for me to not still see Dolos’ chubby cheeks or Apate’s sweet smile from when they were younger. I pulled them into a quick hug, kissing both their foreheads, avoiding jostling their drinks, and beamed at them.

“Are you two enjoying yourselves? Staying out of trouble, or mostly, I hope?”

Dolos started to answer, but Apate snorted and cut him off with a wicked smile. “As much as we can, miteras. It has been a chore trying to keep Dolos from causing mischief among the staff and guests.”

I raised an eyebrow…

THE NIGHT'S TALES

Whole Latte Love Coffee Shop & Daycare’s grand opening was an exciting blur. The first full day of being open twenty-four hours was far busier than I thought it would be, to be completely honest. During the day, students and the elderly spent their time chatting, studying, working on school projects, or just passing the time. Nerina and Myron, my barista and till operators made fast friends with the locals, while Amar blew past my expectations of his baking. Luna shared with me the reviews that were pouring in on Google and Yelp, and mentioned putting our name into TripAdvisor to gain traction in the international community. Her reasoning?

Who wouldn’t want to have coffee sourced by a Primordial?

I do love her.

While the coffeeshop thrived, the daycare side was equally as bombarded. Word had spread from the initial group of parents that had come to the grand opening…
