Vast Forest in the Land of Fire…
Amidst the towering trees in the land of fire, there was only the green of leaves and the brown of bark to be seen for miles. That changed when something landed on the branches and sprang off, yet it was so fast that all to be seen as it landed was a blur that disappeared to the next branch just as swiftly.
It raced through the treetops until it came to the edge of a vast clearing with a lone stone pillar right in the center before coming to a halt. By now, it was possible to make out just what this speeding object was: a teenage boy clad in a black-and-orange jacket and pants, traditional Konohagakure sandals, and a headband that bore a plate of metal with a leaf-shaped symbol carved into its surface. The most distinguishing features about

Everyone made it safely back to the underground hideout. We ran through the crystal caves until we reached the central chamber. My sister and I helped carry the wounded rebels to our makeshift medical quarters. As she helped administer painkillers and treat their wounds, I noticed Luke come stomping in. "What the hell happened out there?!"
"It was an ambush," I panted. "They knew we'd be there. Magnus had entire battalions ready to box us in. There were lines of artillery at the jungle's edge. It was a setu

Christmas in the Woodlands was always fun. Well I mean, I'd already had Christmas here twice. The Baccas really focused on the food more than the presents. They didn't actually do the whole presents thing at all. I didn't really mind that change. I never really liked that tradition anyway.
But Baccan food was amazing. It's like Italian food but like five times better, it's so good. Think of your favorite food, then multiply it by like six. Yeah, it's that good.
I had gone out to visit Dreven in the high city without Jerome, no longer afraid of running into some sort of hostile creature while I was alone. I had gotten into fights with lower city Baccas three times before. I'd come to have a reputation among them: The human who fought back.
They'd shout, "Bajan homines! Bajan homines!" 'Crazy human! Crazy human!' When they saw me coming, and most of them would run. Every time, I would just smile

"I don't see how it could get more perfect," Dana said to herself as she made her way into the cabin she had rented for the weekend, putting her rifle down by the door as it closed. Walking over to the sink, she washed the dirt and blood from her hands, watching the brown mixture as it ran down the drain.
Not many young women she knew would have considered a weekend hunting trip to be a perfect time, most of her friends and acquaintances back in the city would rather be shopping or watching their favorite reality shows. But to her, this was the best way to spend her time. This weekend had even gone better than planned. Not only had she bagged a beautiful doe, but she also came across quite the handsome gentleman, who helped her load the deer on her car. She'd have to call him later and thank him for his generosity with a bit of her own.
She grabbed a few moist paper towels to clean the remnants of dried blood off h

A Little More Trust Cpt. 1Control. To Colfax, it was a precious commodity. Control over his environment, control over his resources, control over every single pattern of his life. He often told himself that in many cases, being in control of his situation was more important than anything else.

Colfax heard the signs of the second wave of morning classes getting out. That meant that the halls of the university building would soon be filling with college students. He sighed and glanced at the door of the supply closet. He'd restocked his bag with new safety pins, some string, and some cotton. He stood up and walked to the edge of the shelf, where his grappling line fashioned out of a large safety pin and some twine was still hooked into the plastic.
No one ever came into the supply closet during the day, but it was always better to be safe than sorry. Colfax quickly made his way to the floor, ready to hide
Mouse And Brains Underfoot“You know, I really thought that once I embraced the criminal lifestyle I’d get tied up way less often.”Mouse And Brains Underfoot4 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her real name was Enid Grudgings, although you might remember from the last Mouse and Brains story that her new name was Venus. If you saw her as our story begins, you’d probably think she didn’t look much like a criminal in training for two reasons. Firstly, she wore a chocolate-brown dress and a white apron, which made her look like a coffee shop waitress rather than someone participating in an illicit scheme to make an unauthorized withdrawal from a nearby bank.
Secondly, as indicated by her opening line, she was bound and gagged.
“You’d think somebody would try the door,” she fumed – silently. A wad of cloth in her mouth kept in place by several strips of tape over her lips kept her from forming words. She lay on her side, behind the serving counter, her cellphone nearby, but hopelessly out of r

Saiph and Heilyn glanced up at Nik as he spoke, and although Heilyn agreed, Saiph didn't.
"If I've been asleep for the past three days, I think my illness would be gone by now," she murmured. She grabbed the blankets around her and threw them off, and Heilyn stepped forward with a frown. "Hey, what are you doing?"
"I want to get out of bed," she replied levelly. She was starting to sound more like her old self, whether it was because she was fully awake or because the time spent in bed had allowed her enough rest to get over the flu. She spun herself around so that her feet were dangling off the bed, and Heilyn said with a worried expression, "I thought you just said you were feeling weak. You shouldn't be moving too fast-"
Saiph muttered, "Save it." She put her bare feet on the floor, wincing at the cool touch of hard tile. She managed to stand up without any problems, but as soon as she took a step forward, her knee buckled underneath her and she went tumbling to the ground. H

He had nothing to do at the moment and couldn't decide what he wished to do next.
Then he was startled with footsteps from inside the house. How did somebody just break in?
He had no time to get up so he cursed then jumped into the water. (For him, adjusting his respiratory systems didn't necessarily hurt him at all.)
See, every merperson's house always have two openings: one on the surface and one underwater.
Now, Adam entered the underwater opening, trying to find his way back inside secretly, as to not startle this random trespasser.
"Are you sure he's here?"
A feminine voice made him alert and cautious. Once hearing it, he surfaced by a wall, near the entrance of the surface part from the underwater part, hoping to not get seen. He listened carefully to the voices.
The voice was slightly robotic. (Just think of Siri or

Terror in the DarkI wake curled up in a notch at the foot of a large tree. I look up slowly, blinking. How had I gotten here? I fell asleep in my bed, but now I'm in a forest. I stand slowly, the darkness thick; my eyes are unable to adjust enough to see more than three feet in front of me.Terror in the Dark51 minutes ago in Short Stories More Like This
A biting wind blows through me and I shudder, glancing around. The tree limbs all look like arms with gnarled hands reaching out to grab me. I take a deep breath and close my eyes, telling myself to stop imagining things like that. It was bad enough being alone in the cold and dark in a forest I had never seen before.
A twig snaps and I turn sharply, my eyes wide, my breath quickening. It's just an animal, probably a squirrel. But squirrels don't have large, glowing yellow eyes. I gasp and stumble back when I see them, falling over onto the ground.
The eyes move closer and a head becomes visible. It's a man. No, not a man. Men don't have gl

Not a lot of students had study hall. As Roxy was talking with her friends she noticed that Kenzie, Arik and Matthew had study hall along with some other students including herself and her friends. Bella excused herself and went to the bathroom. "Roxy" Skye spoke to the girl. The girl turned to her friend. "Yes?" she asked. "I know what you are and I know that you know that I am one as well" her friend said. "Yes I do know what you are as well as I knew that you knew I was the same as you" Roxy told her. "This is a secret that must stay between us" Skye said. "You think I didn't know that?! Of course I did. If anybody found out we probably wind up as some science experiment. I know better than to let anyone know about our kind" Roxy clarified. Before Skye had a chance to respond back Bella came back. "Hey guys,
Only whenI've always been here by your side. I remember every memory that's faded from yours. I've always been there watching you. By your side. Ever since the day you were born.

It seemed like any other day. You were outside, maybe going for a walk, or exploring, when you saw something small dart through the bushes. You decided to chase after it.
Once you had found and caught it, you were amazed by the sight. It was a tiny neko with tiger-striped ears. She shook nervously in your hand, but her face seemed calm.

A splitting, horrible noise cut through Sara’s mind. The sound jarred her from a peaceful sleep, and she sat up in bed with a jolt. She looked around rapidly, heart pounding. She was bewildered by what she saw.
Sara was in a small room, with cream-colored wallpaper. She lay in a twin-sized bed, big enough for only one person. There was an iron headboard behind her, crafted to look like roses. At the foot of the bed sat a small trunk, made of bleached wood. Either side of the chest was adorned by the image of a unicorn, prancing and dancing with their hair flowing around them.
There was a large, roomy closet against one wall, deep enough to walk inside. The doors were open slightly, revealing num
Wolf Brat Ch 26“We can’t kill her!” Shadow protested, his blood colored eyes widening in a vile mixture of surprise and horror. His body was tense, his figure lean and powerful, the muscles rippling smoothly beneath his skin as they bunched, the thick sole of his hiking boot echoing loudly as he took a tentative step forward, only to skitter back moments later. He pressed his fragile body back against the wall, feeling the cold brick bite through the thin fabric of his shirt, the alpha male who had so graciously turned him now inches from his face.Wolf Brat Ch 264 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“We will do as we’re told,” he snarled, baring the gleaming white surface of his fangs, saliva timidly dripping from their edges, as if to sheepish to admit their cowardly retreat. “Especially you, Shadow. Need I remind you what happens to my subordinates should they care to disobey?”
His ears were flat against his head, the mop that had once been his hair was now neatly trimmed, no more than spikey fuzz now.

The flow gates to the magma chamber which usually powered the Foundry, providing not only the raw materials, but the immense heat needed for the creation of renowned Dwarvish weapons and armor were closed on this momentous day, yet the chamber was filled with an immense heat.

She lost track of time in her going through the boxes, and it didn't help that one of those boxes had old toys and nesting dolls. Many still in good condition.

Story of Marala: Chapter 7 For the next few days, I hung around Althir. In turn, Zai-no, Sujen, and Natiana also came around to be with our now favorite Half-Elf. At first, Althir was distant; rarely speaking, not exactly doing a whole lot, he seemed more curious in figuring us out more than anything. There were days when he'd just do nothing at all, but that never deterred us. Zai-no seemed overzealous with asking Althir stories of his adventure, if you can call it that. Finally able to get a sword of his own, Sujen was overjoyed with Althir's teaching, even if Althir didn't know all that much. Natiana always had a smile on her face, she was happy enough with just being around her brother. And then... me, I don't know why, but I feel like my chest is warm whenever I'm near him.

We stand on a bridge. It is made of wood, and I’m not talking about planks. Thick trunks full of life create the surface we are standing on. The handrails are branches that intertwine with each other, thin branches covered with fresh green moss. The leaves and the white flowers whisper in the cool breeze. Everything is unknown, yet familiar, just like the woman.
As the sun sinks closer to the horizon, I get nervous. I don’t know why.
“Why are we here?” I ask.

My childish curiosity makes her smile. “Because he'll take you with him.”
I feel a shiver of fear run down my spine.
