Description

"Cloak!" A world-weary, beaten-down everyman… a mysterious, street-wise old man… the shadows that hide beneath the shadows… and the secrets we keep for generations… all come together in the debut story in the occult-flavored Protector storyworld!

 

Shattered by family tragedies, Harry Turpin does his best to lead a life of mediocrity, sheltering himself from strong emotion and the risks of love and commitment.

 

When his girlfriend dumps him for a snide would-be magician, Harry's life begins to take a very strange turn. As the mysteries about his family and his own stunted emotional growth begin to mount, Harry has to do something to shrug off the cloak he's been living under.

 

The fate of his ex-girlfriend… and maybe a lot more… hangs on his decision.

Harry's eyes met Betty's through the glass of the door. He came in as smooth as he possible; of course he hadn't been standing out in the brisk October afternoon. Why would he do that?

Betty's smile shifted slightly. Dimmed. She brushed the hair away from her flushed face.

Harry! I was just thinking about you!

Harry wasn't surprised she turned her head when he leaned in for a kiss. His lips grazed her cheek and his stomach notched tighter.

I thought I'd come see you on the way home from the site,
