Siege at Sorrel Rift

Foreword Magazine

Lit Between the Ears and Two Plus Plus Productions are proud to present SIEGE AT SORREL RIFT by Veronica Paulina and starring Jason Downs and Lori Wilner.

SIEGE is about the passion between newlyweds Kaden Blood and Catherine Cobalt Blood. It is also about their two children, Elizabeth and Nathan, and the family they begin at Sorrel Rift.

However, when Kaden and Catherine’s intense desires become a bitter divorce, and Sorrel Rift is figuratively split apart, their family, and all four lives are in danger.

Episode One – Recap

Episode One introduced Kaden and Catherine Blood in their home at Sorrel Rift.

Episode Two – Recap

This episode opened with Kaden Blood speaking to the readers of The Ex-Press, his magazine for divorced mothers and fathers. The episode ended with The Narrator’s foreboding words for Lizzie and Nathan.

Episode Three – Recap

This episode spanned Kaden recalling the love he felt for Catherine on their wedding day and ended with Lizzie rallying The Rifts – the nickname for other children whose parents are going through bitter divorces.

Episode Four – Recap

The Rifts escaped their homes and joined together. When Kaden and Catherine and thousands of other parents followed their children to the nation’s capital to claim them, The Rifts took over a pleasure-ride boat, the Riverboat Queen, and headed away from land.

And now, Episode Five

Kaden and Catherine are running along the bank following the Riverboat Queen. If only they can keep the boat in sight . . . and if it can stay afloat:

In an overloaded pleasure-ride boat

They steam upriver churning hard and fast

Waving and cheering from high on the mast

We think they’ll head home to our castle moat

Tears burn our eyes and lumps swell our throat

We know not how long their sailing will last

Before line and anchor they must cast

Now we hope only that they stay afloat.”

But the Riverboat capsizes and many Rifts perish. Lizzie dies in the accident and Nathan is maimed. But The Rifts soldier on, looking for new leadership to fill the loss of Lizzie.

They march and sing and they strum their guitars

Claim a victory at each installation

A welder’s hot torch burns cold steel rod bars

To safeguard their growing population

New maps are drawn with dancing silver stars

Marking the arc of The Rifts’ constellation.”
