Installment 12 of our featured novel “Relentless” is here! If you’ve missed the earlier installments and would like to join our readership, be sure to check out the novel’s home page HERE.
We are publishing the novel in small installments, so it takes only minutes to keep up with the story. Many years ago, we were fans of Stephen King’s installment-based publishing of “The Green Mile” over many months, so we are following in that vein as a feature on Moteventure.

RELENTLESS – D.S. FACTOR
With unimaginable speed, Abi’s pupils slammed down to tiny pinpoints, a brief lightning bolt of pain shattering her thoughts. Closing her eyelids momentarily, and squinting against the harsh glare, she tilted her head up, meeting the gaze of the raven-haired woman descending the stairs at an alarming pace. In the blink of an eye, Abi’s countenance mutated from confusion and disarray to what felt like a laser sharp sense of rage.
A guttural roar emanated from a place deep within her, echoing to even greater heights as Abi broke free from her initial shock and charged up and around the staircase to face her adversary. Before Meredith had an opportunity to draw her weapon, Abi was on her, pressing forcefully against her and sliding the pistol from its hiding place at the small of her back.
“What the fuck is this all about?” Abi yelled in frustration, shoving the barrel of her pistol against the side of Meredith’s neck.
“Why, I can’t say I know what you mean.” Meredith uttered casually as if the only thing pressing into her throat were a water gun.
“You do know that if you kill me, you’ll never see your hubby again, right?” Meredith taunted.
“No, actually, I don’t know that to be true. In fact, I have half a mind to just pull this trigger now so I know you can’t come back and fuck up this situation, whatever it may be, even further.”
“Do it then. DO IT!” With that, Meredith swung her arms up, knocking Abi off balance. The gun fired blind into the room with a horrendous crack, followed by a brief scream as the bullet ricocheted off the rounded walls and the weapon clattered to the ground.
The body initially took the bullet without an obvious response, slumping against the banister momentarily, before sliding forward over the metal edge, ending with a static thud on the floor below.
As the woman made her way down the stairs, she snagged the Glock from the ground, walked across the room, and slid two fingers against the other woman’s throat. She could see blood seeping from underneath the body onto the cement floor. “Dead,” was all she said as she opened the door and maneuvered up the steps into the dawning day.
