“Hey, we got a problem,” Bezaria said quietly as she looked at her companions. “There’s a security guard here. –He just tried to kick me out.”
“Do you know about the spirit?” Albrecht responded quickly and quietly, unconcerned with Bezaria’s problem. “Can you see the spirit, too?”
“Yes, I can see the spirit,” Bez snapped, standing up and pointing toward the apparition. She was perturbed by Albrecht’s lack of concern for the corporeal problem at hand. “It’s right over there. I don’t know what it’s doing there, but that’s not….”
Bezaria’s voice trailed as she froze in place—the spirit shifted, then turned to face her. Words locked in her throat and muscles locked in her arm, leaving her motionless, still pointing at the ghost. The ghost tilted its head back, and the long black hair parted to reveal a pair of dark, eyeless sockets. It raised an extended arm and pointed back at Bezaria with a long, cold, bony finger. Its mouth opened wide and emitted a moan that was felt more than heard—like a cold breeze without wind; a shrill howl in the mind.
“Oh, no,” Bezaria said as she regained control of her voice. “Guys, I think it sees me.”
More muscles steadily unfroze, and the Magi slowly stepped backward. “I think I’m in trouble.”

Theodore Thomas is an upcoming author who has, for most of his life, held a love for just about everything related to nerd culture. He is a gamer and a scientist and worked in various settings that have helped fuel his passion for science and fantasy. However, what surpasses his love for science and fiction is his love for his wife and children—the true fuel that keeps him going and striving to be better.
Real-life (work, school, etc.) brutally competes for his time to write, and at times he may struggle to maintain the balance—but he is maintaining it so far. Toothless is the first attempt Thomas has made to publish a book. If he continues to maintain a healthy balance of real-life responsibilities and writing, he hopes to continue producing many more books for readers to enjoy.
