The sorrows I still feel deep inside,
How could this not be,
I've always asked for?
Because it was never meant to be!
It was never,
Meant to be.
So why must my heart,
Bleed out to such a world,
It wasn't meant to be?
I reach a hand out, from underneath my shelter. A shelter made in the hollows of a cave. But as I reach my hand out, I can feel the crisp, chilly, and wet droplets of rain, land softly on my hand. My eyes widen ever so slightly as I step myself further out into the rain, out from underneath the sheltering cave. Slowly the rain touches up my forearm, slowly reaching my bare feet as I step them forth. I take a deep breath, holding it for but a moment. Before I dash out into the rain.
The words slip out of my mouth as I dash over to a tree just outside of the cave.
Why must my heart,
Bleed out to such,
A terrifying realm?
I stumble over fallen branche

Dolls. Dolls everywhere. That’s what was in my neighbor's attic. My neighbor was a tall, skinny guy, about 25 years old. We were friends, not best friends, but close enough that we occasionally did favors for each other. This was one of those favors.
Being the scaredy cat he was, he was absolutely terrified of the attic. Now this was an old house, built in the 1800s, so obviously it was a little squeaky and creaky, but nothing too scary about it. He had lived there since he was 10, and he had realized that he had never gone up into the attic, not even his parents had gone up there. He called me over to go up with me, and even I felt a little uneasy about the whole thing.
And what did we find? Dolls. So many dolls. Most of them were broken, cracked, or moldy, and dusty. “We should probably go through these,” he said. I got the chills just imagining reaching into one of the boxes, and pulling out a creepy, old clown doll. “I don’t know…,

SKAIA CHAPTER 15The wind blew icy waves, littering the Russian witch and warlock camp with mounds of snow. Even though it was only the beginning of August the climate was near sub 10 degrees. The camp is made up of four identical barracks: on for the men, one for women, one for children, and one for the old. The compound is a mile in diameter and has a 20ft tall electric fence. A guard is stationed every 50ft to make sure that no one tries to escape. There are two more buildings inside the compound. One is the living and office quarters for the guards and the other is the high security prison where they keep the powerful and dangerous witches and warlocks.SKAIA CHAPTER 157 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

The world was rich and alive. It's once atmosphere less surface now a blue gem in this system, with spanning jungles and rivers.
The citadel remained in its orbital position, continuing to revive the world with what seemed to be a wide mixture of magic, nanotechnology, biological engineering and psychic.

When she finally made her way downstairs, she found her aunt in the kitchen, muttering under her breath.
"Is everything all right?"
"I should have taken you back with me, to Finland," said Jack, slamming the plate of toast down on the table. "Those idio-excuse me."
Anne laughed, and Jack gave her a look.
"What did they want?"
"A progress report, I shall call it. You were one of their special cases. Of all the nerve. I wish I could take them to court."
Her fingers found the burn again, and the dragon. She shook her head. "I'm out of there," she echoed what Jack had said earlier. "And not a moment too soon."
"Indeed," Jack said as she set the table. "Kicked you out after they set you to work in a sewing factory or the like."

"Hey, Drexyll?" I whispered, nudging my sleeping brother. He opened his brown eyes, and looked up at me.
"What is it, Charity?" He muttered.
"I thought I saw something..."
"Yeah. It looked shiny. I saw it fall to the ground..."
Drexyll laughed silently. He told me I was just imagining things, and we would go check it out in the morning if I wanted to.
"Sure." I replied, and then snuggled up next to him.
What the shiny thing was, I didn't know at the moment. But it would change the way I viewed the world forever.

Miró hacia arriba: en las ramas carbonizadas pendía un anciano, débilmente sujeto por cuerdas negras. Ella sonrió: una sonrisa malévola, repleta de prepotencia. Se giró para dar la espalda al tronco y su cabello carmesí surcado por vetas negras dio una graciosa vuelta. Mirando en torno a ellos, empezó a hablar de nuevo:

Había llamas por todas partes. La ciudad a la que se refería Allie había sido reducida a cenizas por el fuego de su odio: escombros cubiertos de hollín se apilaban en lo que habían sido hermosas calles; cuerpos que invadían con su hedor a carne quemada el aire esparcidos por todas partes.

James has another assistant, Mary, a 5'7" black girl, who is

Date: 1,500,000 BC
Location: Eastern Africa
Going back to Africa and back to 1,500,000 BC, our Homo ergaster community group is settled at their area as the sun is setting. But now they have moved on from the baking mudflat and have also moved on time. The cry of a Human baby is heard and the older male hunter strokes the head of the newborn infant that he rests on his lap, while his partner is quietly grooming his hair. Further away the old female is playing with another grandchild; with the help of the grandmother, the female will soon be able to produce more young, although by now she is bonding with a different male. Hoovu and Doshi are now clearly a pair, sitting away from the others expressing occasional simple word-like sounds to each other. Surprisingly, on the very edge of the group, the interloper is now squatting, chanting to himself while knapping at a hand axe. He is on the periphery of both the group and the co

It was worn a little, a stain or two here and there, but it was soft and cute. Qoni was happy with it. She looked up and saw the white-haired boy sitting in front of the fireplace, staring into the flames. She hopped from her perch and joined him, hugging her knees as she crouched down.
"Hi," she said.
The boy looked startled and pursed his lips a bit as he studied her face. He looked away. "....hi."
"My name is Qoni."
Poison - Chapter 7Bright, fiery orange rays cast across the sky in the evening sunset. I took the path toward Temmerton High school, but then strayed past it, out into the forest I had been in a few days ago. I had forgotten it on Tuesday, but when I looked at the texts from Dante, I remembered that Dante lived deep in this forest. The intense sunset and the warm autumn leaves made it look almost as if the forest was on fire. As I walked up the hill, a crisp breeze blew past my legs, slightly chilling my bare calves, where my leggings ended just past my knees. My skirt lapped against my thighs.Poison - Chapter 72 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I held my purse tightly against me, and kept treading uphill, further and further into the forest until I came across a little house. To my surprise, Dante was already outside.
He smiled at me. Gosh, that beautiful smile. "Buonanotte, Heaven. You're here."
He came over to me and kissed me on both cheeks, as Europeans do. But he lingered by my left cheek. "I have to ask you not to tell anyone about...this."

El sol brillaba en lo alto de un cielo sin nubes, era un día caluroso de finales de agosto, comenzaba una nueva semana. Alexander Teach recorrió con la mirada todo el mercado, detallando los puestos ambulantes, las tiendas bajo los arcos y el gran tanque de hierro en el centro de la plaza. Se detuvo un instante para ver uno de los carteles que estaban colgados por todas partes y que tanto odiaba.

He told me, Reverend Alljoy, I am having doubts -- doubts about my faith, doubts about the Gospels, about the divinity of the Christ, about the Church and the Message of the Third Revelation... and it near broke my heart, it near rent my heart in twain to hear this intelligent young man admit to these shameful doubts.
