Today I am happy to announce my short story cover is finished and will be the cover showed of in this post. I don’t remember if I showcased the first story in the short story series or not. That is why I will be including “A Father’s Protection” alongside my new story. I am including a short excerpt to go with this cover reveal for both short stories. I hope you all enjoy.

A Father’s Protection
His animal instincts took control of him instantly. He jumped to his feet flexing his muscles as he crouched. DarkDeath smiled letting his power slowly seep into his legs. It has been far to long since I got to have this much fun. A smile creep into his eyes as everything blurred as his legs leaped into a full charge.
Ha…this is more like it. The trees blurred past him as mere moments took him miles in distance. The speed was so extreme it would destroy any weaker being. Flowers were obliterated at his passing, animals screamed in fear running from his power. The sense of battle was filling him full of glee…I feel like a pup again. Perhaps, I’ll let the pups stray more often.
He sprinted to the clearing as the wind blew against his nose, giving him updates on his enemy. The distance was nothing for him he managed to cover ten miles under a few seconds. The clearing came into few as the trees separated opening up into grassland that was circled by a small cliff and trees.
DarkDeath, looked around from the shadow of the trees watching. He wasn’t alone without realizing it a twin-tailed fox snuck up on him. His eyes watched the silvery colored fox walk into the clearing circling its prey.
“I know your there, Kyre King” the she fox teased.
He rolled his eyes, of all the foxes he had to deal with, it had to be this one. Females were ten times more irritating and all he needed was to get carried away. “I would step out from behind your tree, Dark One.”
“The name is DarkDeath, Silver hide” he growled.
“Hmmm…call me what you will Kyre” she said entwining her tail playfully. “But, last I checked I wasn’t the one with a pup in someone else’s territory.” Her delicate paws jumped from the ground onto a boulder. She twisted, sitting herself high above, giving herself the advantage over him.
