AotAB Part 1: Livyatan's LandingThe balmy night air batted at Komaki's face as his mount charged up the dirt path, sweeping past the slender palm trees and lush ferns that lined the trail. Fingers threaded firmly through the thick ruff of fur around the beast's neck for stability, the boy twisted himself around to look at his pursuer and laughed – not because he was getting away, but because the distance between them was closing. The middle-aged asotu Komaki's brother rode was far past his prime, with legs marred and visibly misshapen by old wounds from his youth. Weyr, as he was called, rarely had the opportunity to indulge in any form of competition these days.AotAB Part 1: Livyatan's Landing5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It had been years since Komaki had seen such a look of determination in the animal's eyes, which blazed blue every time they passed one of the lanterns that was posted every few yards on the path. They had been running for a few minutes now and though Weyr's sides heaved and his tongue lolled from the side of his mouth, he appeared d

The portals began to appear only a few weeks ago. Before that there was nothing unusual about the Mill. It was a structure older than the forest itself and therefore it had outlived its purpose. There were only a few employees still working there. Because agriculture in the country had become more industrialized, there was really no need for such a primitive machine so it was scheduled to be torn down in the next month. But then the portals began to appear.
They are quite a spectacle to behold. The holes in reality appear randomly around the mill in all sizes, sometimes no bigger than a key hole, other times larger enough to slip through. When looked through, it is like staring through glasses that portray the world in a darker way. Some of us have even been brave enough to stick our hands through just to see what would happen. There were no real consequences; in fact it felt almost the same as it would if your hand had

Hello there, I am Narrator. You do not know me, and neither do I except for these papers your family or friends, whoever cares for you most, has given me. You are not physically aware of me. You are reading these words that flash in front of your vision, little squares that combine into letters that pass through your eyes and get translated into a voice of your choosing. Perhaps I am a child, perhaps I am a man with a deep voice, perhaps I am the voice of yourself, the voice of one close to you, a voice of a character you like. I am not sure. You stare at these letters,wondering what this is all about. This voice called Narrator has suddenly appeared as words. You are confused, or maybe you are not. You control your own thoughts unless I am putting my words into them.
You are lost.
You may or may not be aware of this. I am here to rescue you. Perhaps I will, perhaps I will not. I cannot tell. Your closest one has signed a contract with me, saying I am not responsible for whe

In my opinion, I'm just a regular seventh grade girl trying to survive in the battlefield of middle school. The truth is, I'm skinny because I walk three miles to my home every day. I don't talk to anybody because I don't like people. I never smile because there's never really anything for me to smile about. I'm always tired because I never get the time or care to put on makeup over my dark circles.
"Callie!" Katie rushes to my side. I wonder how she doesn't trip and break her ankles when she runs in those pink high-heels. "Guess what?"
"You got a new makeup collection." I say lamely. She's always looked so beautiful. I just couldn't care less to feel jealous.

Oh, and also to make sure his little sister Rebecca didn’t follow his “example.” They did everything they could to make sure that Jeff didn’t influence their poor precious princess toward the dark side. As if you could influence someone to have autism. His parents apparently thought so though, but then they weren’t the brightest pair when it came to mental problems.

They’d also never vaccinated her either, for the same reason, lest she become tainted and broken and useless, like her big brother. Lucas told him to just i

Perhaps I should not think too ill of the beast. He could hardly be expected to understand civilized behavior. His master has no such excuse. A Queen shouldn’t belch in front of guests.
Al-Keffan was elated to see his negotiations with the Shasiek come through. He had us rearrange our tents in a pattern which would communicate our status at a glance to their Queen. It felt a silly waste of time given that he could only convince her highness to visit and dine for a few hours. Barson gave one of his dry little laughs when he saw my tent beside his.

I did not know how anyone, especially my father, the king, would expect me to stay home. He had finally granted me permission to become a challenger in the frequent battles he held inside the amphitheatre. Fighting monsters wasn’t ideal, but I was making headway. My eighteenth birthday was still six months away. Too long to wait to see one of the beasts up close.
Ajax stood in front of me and peered around the corner to see if the streets were still clear of foot traffic. I checked the shadows behind us to do the same. He lightly slapped my arm to signal we should move forward.

Jim was lost in Dimitri’s soft eyes, a ton of sappy thoughts racing through his mind. He felt so protected in Dimitri’s arms, his heart practically nothing but mush after the entire wedding ceremony. The magic feeling when he walked down the isle gave him an adrenaline rush, and the amount of love he felt must of rubbed off on everyone around him, for they all looked glossy eyed and pink-faced as well.

This entire day had been a mistake and now I was running the risk of ruining my life forever. I had allowed myself to show my weakness. Sebastian saw my eye and no one had seen it since right before my parents died.

It had glowed a brighter purple occasionally when I felt a strong emotion, but it had never stayed like this until Sebastian saw it. Even his hand seemed to have had a dark purple glow to it. The only thing that I really noticed though was the longer we spent together, the less the painful sting was present.
