The Poison Garden

In the dead of night a girl flees all she's ever known, fearing for her life and seeking to save that of her brother.
Far into the forest, beyond yew trees grown on human flesh, she seeks the Serpent, a small community of individuals secretly thriving away from the pious eyes of the Garden.
If she's lucky, their interests might just align.

Follow Henbane, Bluebottle, Mistletoe and others as they seek to tear down their old lives in order to build them anew.

6. Chapter 5 - Artemis


The air reeks of something metallic.

The room is dark, so dark, and I can’t see a thing, can’t feel a thing, but there’s pain, pain, so much pain.

What happened?

There will be anger. So much anger. There’s spit on my face.

I feel it coming, and I’m in pain, but I can’t remember, I can’t remember what’s happened.

What has happened?

A knife, a knife, like punishment in my arms.


Right… I’m being punished…

I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Then suddenly it doesn’t matter.

I’m face down, cold presses against my face, and I’m tired. So tired.

I felt everything. I felt every little thing. Now I just feel nothing.

Feel like nothing.

I am nothing.
