Deliver UsThe sun beat down mercilessly on the desert city, not that the Fair Folk noticed. It was a beautiful city, built from beautiful stone slabs and elaborately painted. The humanoid people who lived there were beautiful, garbed beautifully and fed with the most luxurious of food and drink. They wanted for nothing.Deliver Us by Macgyver644200
Their slaves, however, wanted for everything. Captured on pilgrimage, they were the forces behind the city, from the mines to the brick-making to the cooking, cleaning, and fixing.

Silver Blood, Chapter EightTiffany stared. Both humans were black and both were dressed in polo shirts and khakis, and seemed not to be wearing any kind of restraints.
