This is the first piece of really short fiction from the Blood Mage universe. I sometimes get these ideas stuck in my head that really don't belong in a longer story but are fun and help me get to know the characters a little better. It hasn't been edited or checked for errors by anyone other than myself.

This story came about when I asked myself what Cal and Lucas would do if they were bored on a night at home. It doesn't really have a set time it takes place other than sometime after Cal and Lucas begin living together.

Cal could feel a light pressure behind her eyes. She looked up from the book she was reading and turned to Lucas.

"I get it, you're bored?"

"What?" He gave her his most innocent look. It didn't work, maybe because he was never innocent.

"You're trying to get into my head and you only do that when you're bored." The first time Lucas had tried to use mind control on her Cal had been livid. That was before either of them knew what the other was, now it had become something of a game between them. Lucas would try to find cracks in her shields and she would build them up stronger. This time he had tried to be subtle, to find a weakness before she knew he was probing at her mind. He was getting much better at this but his touch still wasn’t light enough to avoid detection.

What's Next?

I've started a new writing project featuring Cal and Lucas which is looking to be quite a bit longer than 'The Blue Lady' and it's far from complete. In the meantime updates won't be as regular but I hope to post little bits of flash fiction on a semi-regular basis. Some will be in the Bloodmage world and some won't. It really depends on what strikes my fancy. 

I will post the novella here but I don't really write in a way that I can post chapters as I finish them. I need a complete first draft that's pretty rough to just work out the plot then I rewrite everything. Is it efficient? Not really, but I'm doing this for fun.
