Ghosts? Spirits? These are just figments of imagination. Old wives’ tales that village folk have created and passed down over generations to keep themselves entertained. Humans, on the other hand, are the real terror that walk the Earth. The ideas conjured up in one’s mind is enough to leave the dead quivering in their graves.
They say that the power of the mind knows no boundaries. Mankind has just begun to scratch the surface of just how powerful the mind can be, but have they really? What lurks in the depths of the mind of a boy who has been weighed down by his twin all his life, to suddenly know that it was all a ruse? When a best friend chooses to become a self-declared protector of yours, how long would it be before you decide whether you are being guarded, or held captive? A man who murdered his wife, claims that she is not who she says she is. A court trial finds him guilty, and declares him insane. But is he really?
I present you “Mind Games”, tales that tell you about those who walk amongst us, may not always be who they seem to be. Tales about people who may have gone a little too far, those for whom there is no coming.
Tales that are sure to keep you up all night, wondering what is reality, and what is fiction.
As Fates Would Have It
Do you believe in Fate? Do you think you can change it?

To die at your given time, and to accept death, became the law. Death made no exceptions. But Marcus Wane did not want to die, just because some crusty old book told him to. He had a plan to evade Death.
Would he succeed? Or would it all backfire horribly? What does Death have in store for a human who doesn't wish to die?
