Truths & Chains – Chapter Thirty

NOT EDITED With Elias’s certainty of Vito’s criminal behaviors back on track, researching the man had gone incredibly well that day. He and JJ had managed to get through the rest of the Minetti crime scenes–or, at the very least, the ones in the United States–which had helped to reaffirm Elias’s theory. He hadn’t doneContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Thirty”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Nine

A/N: Belated Monday update. Chapter thirty is already finished too, so as long as no animal things go wrong, you should get an update on time next Monday** NOT EDITED Vito rolled out of bed bright and early.

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Eight

A/N: Belated Monday update. I’m sorry for all the delays across all my stories. In addition to writing being pretty meh for a while, I’ve had a terrible battle with headaches, migraines ,and nausea for the past month or so. Now our farm cat’s sick and I’m working on getting him to the vet beforeContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Eight”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Seven

A/N: I just finished this chapter this morning, so here’s a belated Monday update!** NOT EDITED Though Vito had never considered his house to be in a gated community, Elias wasn’t really wrong. The very few houses near him were owned by Jamal and unoccupied, something the old man had most likely done to makeContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Seven”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Six

A/N: I finally managed to accomplish a bit of something here, so here’s a belated Monday update 🙂 NOT EDITED After sitting his ass on the couch all day, Elias had gone out for groceries. He didn’t really need anything that couldn’t wait until after work tomorrow, but it was an excuse to get himContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Six”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Five

A/N: Full disclosure, this is the last completed chapter I have written. Writing has been very slow and very difficult for me for quite sometime all across the board, so if there isn’t an update next week, that’s why. I’m doing my best to finish chapter twenty-six as soon as I can. Thank you inContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Five”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Four

NOT EDITED Elias awoke to the ring of his phone. The one time he managed to actually sleep in recent history, and he had his damn sound on. He accepted the call with a groan and pressed his phone to his ear. “Hello?” The breathing on the other end of the line chilled him toContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Four”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Three

NOT EDITED A cell phone vibrated on the floor, practically shaking every bone in Vito’s body. He groaned, burying his face in his pillow. He was real damn tired of phone calls dragging his ass out of warm beds after sex. Sometimes, he just liked to sleep in instead of ditching the moment sex wasContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Three”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Two

NOT EDITED Vito had fallen asleep very soon after sex. Now, he lay on his stomach, an arm thrown across Elias’s chest. He snored louder than Dude, who had come in to join their slumber party an hour or so ago. Elias, on the other hand, lay wide awake, eyes on the ceiling. He keptContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-Two”

Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-One

NOT EDITED After failing to take someone home six nights in a row, Vito stuck a sticky note to the top of a cake box and left it on Elias’s doorstep on Saturday morning. He wasn’t usually a repeat sleeper, but he didn’t have much of a choice. The new dog was stressful. Bo’s inabilityContinue reading “Truths & Chains – Chapter Twenty-One”
