Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 17

When I came back from my evening run, Luana was chipping away at the ice on the stairs with a shovel.  “Whatcha doin?” I asked.  Luana jumped and slipped on the stairs. I caught her just in time before she could hit her bottom on the ice.  “Don’t scare me like that Sonic!” She exclaimed.  … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 17

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 16

Winter was quiet and calm. The wheat fields were now barren, leaving eerie empty space. However, it was made up for by an unusually consistent snowfall. Since we lived by the coast, we rarely got snow, and if we did, it wasn’t cold enough to stick. But it did this year. There was a large … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 16

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 15

It took all night to assemble a team to put a sheet of wood over the window. A few heads were turned when they saw Sonic in my arms (I had wrapped him up in a blanket to avoid being seen), but not enough concern was raised to speak up about it. Finally, at six … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 15

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 14

The audience cheered and applauded as the last performers finished their number. Everyone came on stage to bow, and then trekked to a back room where the cast could converse with the visitors. Only I didn’t come down. I changed my clothes, removed my makeup, set everything down nicely for the next night, then resolved … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 14

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 13

Winter Solstice fell upon us, and with that came Christmas. It was going to be a different one. I had spent the last few years celebrating Christmas alone. Sure I was invited to many parties, and I enjoyed them all. However Lorhen County prided itself on Christmas being a strictly family holiday. Those who didn’t … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 13

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 12

Sonic barely let me do anything on my own when we returned. Anytime I tried to get up from the couch, he would speed up and force me down. He was like a slingshot going from all points of the house. I finally had to get up once to keep Sonic from burning dinner in … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 12

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 11

It was sunset when I got back to Lorhen County. I dashed towards the old house in the wheat fields. I noticed the fields have been harvested. It looked more like an eerie wasteland than farmland. I promptly knocked on the door. I was a little suspicious to find that the door was unlocked. I … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 11

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 10

The ride back home was silent and grievous. What was once a cheery, active hedgehog was now quiet and still. The dramatic change of character worried me greatly. I refused to leave his side, even if he didn’t address me. I hardly slept, and I don’t think he did either. I could only imagine the … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 10

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 9

Sonic spent most of the Summer going on very lengthy runs, and coming back either late afternoon or early evenings. He was less grumpy, and more cheery. Everyday he'd leave the house for hours and then talk about the Rocky Mountains or wherever else he visited. He’d even bring me back souvenirs (I questioned how … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 9

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 8

The sun seemed brighter than usual. Sonic was already up by the early morning. I could hear him tapping the bed with his shoes straight through the wall.  “Alright, alright, I’m up!” I groaned, playfully rolling my eyes.  Sonic smirked and hopped out of bed.  . I spent the day continuing to work on costumes … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 8
