All was quiet. Not even city traffic could be heard.
His eyes fluttered, noted how the hotel room and single bed within which he lay glowed, remembered the drinks and food and laughter. He couldn't believe that the night ended how it did, didn't dare dream it, but he was happy, truly happy that they could be together, even if for a short while.
Like magic, his arm disappeared under the covers and he rolled over to the body next to him. Flesh against flesh, he moved as close as possible, breathed her in, bathed in her warmth and affection, and heard her sweet smile.
“Is it time to get up?” she asked while wrapping his arm around her pale skin and intertwining their fingers.

Prince and the Pirate Chap.3 Gideon woke up again, he was still tied up to the mast. His head was still pounding. He grumbled and blinked a few times. It was nighttime. There was no laughing crew, just an empty deck littered with crates, barrels, ropes, and lanterns. The lanterns had given little light on the ship, as did the moon. He looked around trying to figure out where he was. Ocean...left and right and in front of him was the Captain's quarters. There was footsteps and laughing. "So where is this lad?" "Aria mentioned he was up here on the main mast." Gideon blinked and looked around then he was met with a man with a black beard and another man with giant side burns with a pipe in his mouth.Prince and the Pirate Chap.326 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“You were quiet today, Starburst…” Annabelle muttered, looking at the girl which was staring at her Tamavice, which uttered a sigh. Anna served her ice cream on a sherbet cup. “Are you worrying about the four?”
“No… not at all… I think I was just…” She looked at the time in the café. “Hmm… I think he's waiting now…” she said. Anna looked at her bewilderedly, wondering what currently runs in Star’s mind. “I wonder… why is she all this silent?”

“Gave what back?”
Sarah looked up, closed the lid, and smiled. “My hope, dear. You gave me back my hope.”

15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

Shike's Execution He couldn't help but be amused by the many expressions worn upon the faces of those judging him. There were many: bitter anger, hatred, disgust, joy, grief (not for him of course)... He could even see a few that were confused or vacant. The sight made his lips twitch into his infamous cocky grin; an action that caused even more of a reaction from the crowd before him. Inwardly he chuckled. He might have released it out loud if he didn't think the officials would cut his verdict early and dispose of the floor beneath him so that he would hang.Shike's Execution1 hour ago in Short Stories More Like This

A man dressed like a gentleman from Victorian England (this fashion was quirky even for this age when everything was allowed to wear) placed his hand onto the forehead of the little girl supine on the bed. She was pale - so pale that even her lips didn't have a droplet of blood in them - with white hair braided in tiny plaits reaching her shoulder-blades, round-faced and with beautiful fingers. Those were the fingers of the one who could use them well. And she wasn't sleeping. This was more of lost consciousness, taking in the condition in which she had been found.
After a while the girl's breathing turned full, and she opened her eyes of minty green shade:
"What? Where am I? Am I dead?"
"No, you're not," the man replied and sat onto the edge of her bed. "I'm the Doctor. What's your name?"
"Teeah." The girl reached out and touched his knee, as if making sure that he wasn't going to turn to smoke and disappear. "Doct

Fire by Kristen Cashore: A reviewHaving completed a review of Graceling, where glimmers of hope for the series began despite a sense of dullness, it is now time to jump into the second book of the trilogy. What is nice to see about this is that you don’t need to have read Graceling before this book, for it is actually a sort of prequel.Fire by Kristen Cashore: A review1 hour ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Focusing on a new land called the Dells, Fire by Kristen Cashore focuses on Fire (hence the title); a seventeen year old who is a monster. Monsters in the Dells are any creatures with striking colours (say a golden raptor) and their beauty is able to cause people and creatures to focus on them. In the case of animal monsters, it means they are a fascination to people and they have a taste for monster meat (which Fire does to an extent, just not as savagely), but for human monsters it means that they can perceive minds and influence them. Some people want to hug, kiss, marry and just generally adore her; others want to kill or harm her, hating her so much. It doesn’t help th

Starburst was stunned, but she just laughed about it. “Umm, actually, they were all busy. And I was planning to lead my crew soon, so I have to study about the instance… and learned a lot from that veteran crew I joined…” she said while flipping the notebook.
“I see,” Agatha said. “Your decision is right, and at the same time, wrong. You actually made your first victory a fruitful one by learning from it, but then you leave your friends behind… and could probably break your promise…”

From the mountains of Maikuru’s castle, Starburst was running away while attempting to cover her face from public. She was crying. She cries because of the happenings last time, which had revealed to her why her long lost friend wasn’t there for 11 years.

But those who heard the promise somehow didn’t know what was happening at all…
“Tomorrow isn’t it? Starburst’s Gaian Birthday, and her original birthday?” Alice looked at the calendar displayed on the pastel wall. The place where she was at the moment was a dessert shop, where Alastair and Annabelle could be seen working for the customers.
“Well yeah…” Alastair muttered. “We haven’t moved out of Barton Town yet. And Tundra wasn't talking to us yet about moving out of Barton.”

He then released a mighty roar, which echoed throughout the world. All of the people, Gaian or Ring Heart, looked up, wondering where the roar came from, and what does it mean. But the roar leaves an impact on the Ring Hearts.
