A vast space of nothing but nature .
It sings in the wind, the blades of grass and pebbles before me a symphony of dark empty, unloving and bleak... but beautiful.
Even the great cliffs beside me had stains from weeping at the most stunning views that I had found .
This place has a name it always lingers in the back of my mind . Just remembering it's name crushes my heart again , for when I was here before ... before I gave up trying .
This place was more beautiful with her there .
I promised that I'd protect you from the world , that we would run away together, for we were more than petty classmates. I'd met you before somewhere.
I don't know where or when, all I knew was that I knew you and you couldn't remember.
Not that it matters anymore. ...
A Dark Horse Dreaming ch.1 p2/2After a breakfast he barely touched, Hallon had taken to the city streets in haste, walking as quickly as he could without seeming suspicious. He was anxious to get out of the concrete, cobblestones, and crowds and into the forest that huddled against the City's outer walls. He walked past the clustered mansions of his rich neighbors, down the market streets, and through the slums until he reached the City's back wall. The wall ran around the entire City, as tall as five men in some places and made of strong stone. But behind the slums, in a place nobody dared go that was covered in mold and weeds and roots creeping in from the forest, the wall was nothing but a trickle of fist-sized rocks piled in small heaps. In some places the rock had deteriorated, eaten at over the years by roots and dripping water. These spots could easily be pulled apart by someone with sufficient strength.A Dark Horse Dreaming ch.1 p2/29 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

First day on the job and she felt like a teenager again starting a new school and making new friends. There were butterflies making their way through her stomach and her hands felt like they were going to shake. It wasn't hard for her to talk to people. She smiled at everyone and they opened up to her quickly. But talking to someone in passing in a quick conversation knowing you'll never see them again and seeing the same people day in and day out was completely different. First impressions are important after all.
She dressed simply. She wasn’t quite sure what the office attire would be like. Business formal or casual. She opted for a knee length black pencil skirt and white button-up blouse. She wore yellow pumps to add a little personality to her outfit. Her light grey bag simply disappeared. She wore her newly dyed brownish red hair up. She had had it pink before

It was a sunny, summer day at Mystic Avenue. The kids were playing outside, some adults were relaxing outside in the daylight. Lucy Dawson was an ordinary child but not a lot of people wanna be with her, Lucy thought maybe it's because she doesn't have any parents she lived only with her Aunt Cady and Uncle David, along with her twin cousins, Skylar and Stella.

Lucy would sometimes ask Uncle David about what happened to her parents but all he said was that they died when she was a baby, Lucy would also ask why, but Uncle David didn't answer. As the summer day continues, Lucy just sat by the living room window, watching the people outside, enjoying the summer day.

I don't notice when the sobbing stops. I don't notice when the tears slow and the hiccups subside.
Light touches my cheek, I can feel a hint of warmth which doesn't reach farther than flesh. I am cold. I feel nothing.
My eyes flicker to the window. On a normal day, I would be surprised at how long it took me to notice that the sun was up. I would worry about getting to school on time.
Today is not a normal day.
Slowly and without really deciding to, I stand, my body protesting the movement. Methodically, I go through my usual routine.
Once I've changed into a loose grey shirt and jeans, I make my way to the bathroom. I meet my own eyes in the mirror.
The girl staring back at me appears calm and composed. She shows none of my inner turmoil. Her face is slightly pale. There is no sign of the tears I shed only minu

Welcome to Beijing
The crackles of fire and zapping of circuits are flooding my head. I'm strapped down into a seat. I'm breathing in gasps, fearful and in pain. I look to my left, and a dead man is next to me, I cry out, and reach for my seatbelt buckle. I fall to the ground from my upside down position. My body crashes down with a thump, and pain shoots through my body, especially on my left side near my stomach. I scream in excruciating pain. I turn my vision towards my side, and see a metal rod through me. I shout in panic. I shake my head, and swallow worriedly. I reach down.
"Come on Kai! You can do this!" I shout at myself.
I grab ahold of the rod, and pull with all my strength. I rip it out of my side, and gasp in reaction. I hear helicopter blades whipping. I turn my head, and light shines on my face. A hole in the plane. I roll over and onto my belly. I pull myself with my arms to the hole, an expression of determination and fear on my face. Debris covers t

And just as Rune said, that wasn't really a nice and calm place to stay. They just had time to find three or four kind of different herbs, when a group of bandits spotted them.
"Stop!" A supposedly scary man was blocking the way, while another supposedly scary guy was just on the side
It was a nice change for the orc and the werewolf, since they were totally non interested in herbs, but it still was kind of annoying.
Viktor looked at Aleideen and Radian, they were still looking for herbs, and didn't seemed to care about the two men. He then looked at Rune, who was yawning, and who looked back at him with a bored look.
"Why" he finally said. No, it wasn't a question. Well, technically it was, but judging by the tone, it didn't looked like it was

Less Than Smooth - Chapter 1David had come down to the beach to relax on his day off from work in desperate need of some beach time. He worked in marketing at a large company and while he felt proud about his accomplishments, he was not so sure that he liked the sacrifices he had to make due to his job. Shaking his head for thinking of work while on his day off, he decided to lay out in the sand for a while and free his mind of the stress he had been under. David found a great spot near a rocky outcropping, not far from the limits of the tide. He took off his backpack and settled into the sand, the warm fine sand was just the perfect temperature for laying out that afternoon. David unpacked his backpack and laid out his blanket that he had brought from his downtown apartment that wasn't too far away. As he searched his backpack for his earbuds, his fingers graced against the large latex balloon. He had forgotten that the balloon was stashed away in his backpack and felt a wave of nervousness wash over him,Less Than Smooth - Chapter 18 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“What happened exactly?” Giotto demanded, seeing Gokudera and Yamamoto flinch. Hibari was standing against the wall, hands across his chest as he looked at the window. Mukuro was standing nearby the door, Ryohei standing nearby him. Gokudera and Yamamoto stood on either side of the bed and Lambo was standing on the foot of the bed, looking at Tsuna worriedly.
“We went exploring Vongola Castle sir…” Yamamoto began, his voice almost hollow as he looked at the sleeping figure of Tsuna sadly. Tsuna’s brows were furrowed in pain and sweat coated her face. The doctor, Asari Ugetsu who was another of Giotto’s guardians, had checked her over and concluded that Tsuna had developed a raging fe

“Mom…” Tsuna whispered, making Nana smile down at her. She gently cupped Tsuna’s cheek, seeing she was awake now.
“Goodness me Tsuna. You slept for a good day and a half. You must’ve been exhausted…” Nana exclaimed, beaming a smile as she waved with her spare hand. Two figures walked into the room after peering their heads in. One was Iemitsu, the second was Giotto.
“She’s awake now, she can talk, but I don’t know how coherent she is… She’s still a little out of it” Nana explained to them, earning nods from both of them. Giotto walked to the other side of her bed, sitting down on the edge and gently holding her hand in both of his. Tsuna managed
IndigoI still remember what he looked like. His eyes were a strange shade of blue, almost purple. The color is called indigo, but the shade was too strange, too hypnotic, for a single word to describe it. His hair was a dark brown. He dressed like a normal person, but he wore a necklace, like an amulet. It had a thin black chain and a dark red jewel pendant surrounded by a silver border. He looked human, but he had a strange aura, an almost unhumanlike energy.Indigo2 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I never learned his name, and since he never told me his, I never told him my name either. He told me he went by many names, none of which were real. Even so, I felt a strange connection with him. I knew right away I could trust him. We had a conversation, though I don't remember what it was about. I couldn't take my eyes off of his necklace. The way it appeared to be pulsating drew me in.
I asked him about his necklace, and he told me it was something very important to him. The last thing I remember of meeting that strange person was

Beatrice snapped her cell phone shut with a sigh of disapproval. Yana and Darryl still weren’t answering her usual Sunday evening call. She could feel their presence not far from where she stood on their doorstep, so they were home. “What have you done this time?” she murmured.
She wasn’t terribly powerful, as magic-weavers went, but it didn’t take much to open a locked door if you’d already seen the other side once or twice. Once she was inside, the threads of magic tugged her senses in multiple directions. Her eyebrows rose, and she headed upstairs toward the familiar presence of the button. There, on the bed.
A sigh escaped her lips. The doll lying on the bed was obviously made of two people, though she was surprised that with the control she’d sensed they were still stuck. Surprised, that is, until she noticed the cable leading from the CD player to the doll’s
Parallel Worlds - Chapter 11Tsunayoshi ran down the halls, panting heavily. Sweat trailed down her face as she turned the corner, running down the next hallway. Her breaths came out in small huffs and puffs as her eyes scanned the area desperately. She was late, and if she was caught by a certain person, she was as good as dead! She’d heard the rumours about him from the other girls in school, but she’d never experienced his wrath yet. But that didn’t mean she wanted that to change. Turning the next corner, she collided with something and fell backwards. Landing on her rear harshly, she let out a squeak.

She hugged her arms tightly around her chest, her face still tear stained, small sniffs and hiccups escaping her. Dino looked down at her worriedly, unsure if he was allowed to console her. His orders had been absolute, get Tsunayoshi Sawada to Italy and get her safely to Giotto Vongola. But the poor girl was so badly traumatised from losing Reborn; surely he could at least get her to stop crying?Parallel Worlds - Chapter 26 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

She looked prepared to send him away, but decided against it. “We simply do not get visitors at this hour. I had no notifications that we would be receiving anyone. All the business we conduct with traders happens by appointment and near midday.”
“Which means that there could be trouble?”
Noiah nodded, and the pair quickened their pace. The flame show held interest elsewhere, but the flow of Guardians toward the outer wall was increasing. People were beginning to take notice.
All faces turned toward Noiah as the two crested the stairs onto the battlements. The guards saluted her, relief apparent on several of their faces.
“At ease. Will the one who first noticed a disturbance explain what is going on?”

It was a Saturday morning at the end of April. I got up and got ready for the day. There was a knock at my door, it was Selena, my girlfriend, she came to pick me up. I was going to spend the day at her place so I packed a few things and headed out with her. We got into her car and she drove us all the way to her place. After we got into her home, she told me to make myself at home so I did. She then took me up stairs and took me into a room. In this room there was a large walk in closet and she took me in there by the hand. There was a safe in the corner and she hit a few buttons and opened it and pulled out a device. The device was the size of an I-pad and attached to the device was a long 12 inch tubular device that resembled a flashlight. The tip had a point and it had a circular antenna like thing at the tip. This tubular shape was connected to this I-pad type device by a cord. Selena brought it out and showed it to me. "What is

"Purple is my favorite color!" she murmured to him. Some sort of recognition of hearing quivered his abundant wrinkles as he dreamed on and on and up, to the sky, past the sky, to the emptiness beyond. He dreamed it was filled with the most brilliant, regal purple, blossoming like an infinite iris...
"Oh, Ruhpart! It's gorgeous!" Princess Nithika leapt off her throne, her long, light brown hair waving behind her just above the marble floor. She rushed to one of the windows and pressed the tip of her small nose and hands against it. The sky had deepened into a rich, almost-black purple with silver pin-pricks of stars peeping out.

Part 1: Diagnosis
As I stared at my hands, I felt horror, as I stare at the hands of a reptile. I have large cloven fingers covered by green scales with some sort of organic armor plating. I have no idea what this is. I glance at the nurse, hoping for some inkling of knowledge, reassurance, or explanation.
"What is this?" I whisper, shocked.
"You've been diagnosed with an extremely rare disease. This is the second occurrence ever recorded...." She answers, taking a step towards me, and pressing buttons on a machine.
"What is it? Can I cure it?!" I ask, leaping to my feet, wanting an answer.
"Lie down!" She demands.
I look down at my hands, and see my whole body. All of it was covered in green scales. I gasp again. My feet have been reconfigured with two large clawed toes, and I appear to have both a tail and wings. I start to panic and worry.

"A spell to travel to the mortal realm, you say?" A familiar, yet tiny, voice came from nearby. Ceyfea spun around and saw a dusty-haired human child with fiery eyes glaring at her--without more than a glance, she knew who it was, even though his form was entirely different. But how has he taken on the form of a human!? I taught that spell to no one!
"Vaoulus." Ceyfea said his name disdainfully.
"Hmm? You look surprised. Is it because of this form...?" He snickered and approached her. "But, I applaud you for recognizing me. It's humorous for you to take on such a pathetic form, rival."
