Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Eleven – The End

Chapter Eleven He brought her pillow into the kitchen and pointed down. Calliope knelt on it, awkwardly. She almost fell because of the bonds on her wrists and ankles, and he grabbed her, kept her from falling. When she was kneeling in the center, he went to the cabinets and began taking down bowls. He […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Ten

Chapter Ten The sun was shining when she woke up. Calliope opened her eyes and blinked, looking toward the open French doors, the windowpanes still covered in plywood. She didn’t remember coming into the bedroom. The last thing she recalled was watching an old detective story with Silas. They were laughing about the main character […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Nine

Chapter Nine “So, everything just sort of—exploded. And then the woman in white appeared.” Silas glanced up from where he was picking glass up from the floor. “It wasn’t a woman in white, Phillip, she wore black, like she was in mourning or something. And yes, everything just went… boom.” “Well, we’re going to have […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Eight

Chapter Eight “Pick up… pick up… pick up.” Calliope glanced through the door, wondering when Abigail Hope would come in. Gloria had finished making her copies. She’d handed them to her, then shown Calliope to a small room with a tiny refrigerator, a coffee pot, and a microwave. After a chipper “be right back”, she’d […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Seven

Chapter Seven Three headstones had been toppled. Two of them had broken in half, and one had a rounded corner broken from it. Calliope took photos of all three while Silas talked with Chuck.

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Six

Chapter Six Her Master had called her his little slut, and right now it was more than a nickname. How could she have allowed Silas to fuck her? And how could she have enjoyed every hot second of it? What the fuck was wrong with her? How could she be so disloyal to a man […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Five

Chapter Five “It’s a pretty cool special effect.” Phillip pushed the photograph back toward Calliope. “How did you do it?” “It’s not a special effect, darling, it’s a ghost.” Nella slid the photograph in front of her.

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Four

Chapter Four She wore a dress to dinner. It was probably a snarky thing to do but she wanted to let him know, without having to say the words, that she didn’t want to go bowling. She wanted to eat, discuss the job and then go back to her room. Calliope had mentally kicked herself […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Three

Chapter Three One year later Calliope opened the bottle of whiskey and filled a tumbler. “Here’s to you, Henry. It’s been one year since you died. One year that I haven’t heard your voice. One year that I haven’t felt your touch.” She took a deep gulp, shook her head as the alcohol burned down […]

Calliope’s Master by Melinda Barron – Chapter Two

Chapter Two “Get your hands off me!” Calliope pulled away from the paramedic’s grasp. “I don’t need your help, my husband does. Go and do something for him.” “Mrs. Ingalls,” the woman’s voice was soft, comforting, “your husband is dead. There’s nothing we can do for him. I just want to check your blood pressure. […]
