Morning Sun

I’ve just posted a new short story. It’s available on, and has been submitted to Literotica. It’s called Morning Sun and was inspired by the song of the same name by Bad Company (from their Burning Sky album, if you’re so inclined).

The morning sun came through the windows as Cody Elliott stepped through the door. He closed the door behind him, locked it, and dropped his bag on the floor. He’d sit soon, but he had to check first.

With soft steps, he walked up the stairs and down the hall. The floor creaked and he stopped, but heard nothing and continued on. He opened the bedroom door, leaned against the doorjamb, and looked in.

Please let me know if there’s a problem with the link. I believe you need an account to read at, so can’t give a link there. When the link is available for Literotica, I’ll post it.

Bad Company has inspired two other stories of mine. I’m just a sucker for guitar-heavy rock and Paul Rodgers’ voice. 🙂

Facing the Past was inspired by Love Me, Somebody. Silver, Blue & Gold was inspired by the song of the same title. Both songs were on the album Running with the Pack.
