Love PotionEven while staring down into the slowly bubbling contents of the onyx crucible stationed between the two of them, James could feel the Lilligant's cerise colored eyes looking towards him. True, she was currently the the process of peeling the skin off of several Sitrus and Lum Berries, but when the Tropius looked back up, Lillian most definitely shifted her eyes down to her work, pretending innocence as if she had been doing so all along.Love Potion1 hour ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Thank you for taking the time to help me create this new recipe, James." Lillian finally broke the silence that had been going on ever since the two had very cautiously lit the fire to heat the base water in the cauldron.

I waited while he returned to the kitchen. I suspected the conversation that would occur behind those swinging doors. I did not think too long on it, least I lose my appetite for soup, but after another young man in suspenders and a bowtie was tasked with delivering my bill I knew where to go. In the alley behind the kitchen, stripped of his stupid black bowtie and sitting forlorn on the wet stones. Knees curled to chest, head in his hands, Rhoth mourned the job he had managed to keep for only three weeks – among other things.
We sat together in silence for a few moments, the younger LeVer and I, until my lips formed the words, and my tongue pushed out a question that I had verged on every time that I had seen him since Noe’s death.
“How did he smell?”
Rhoth ignored me for a time. I leaned my shoulders and head back against the restaurant’s outer wall, and waited a few seconds before I ask again.

“No mom.” I began with a slight pause to my words. “I’m not going to become their god damn servant!” I said this although I knew exactly what I had to do. I had to become their servant. Even if I did get away and nobody caught me, the whole town would be punished for my wrong doing. How can a sane person let that happen?
I ran upstairs to the small attic that I called my room, passing Lizzie’s room on my way up the narrow creaky staircase. Lizzie was my Chinese adopted sister. She came on my doorstep when I was two and she was one. Nobody knows who her parents were.
Once I arrived upstairs I quickly threw my long glowing orange hair up in a messy bun pieces sticking out causing a spikey look. I pulled a pair of black jeans on with a green shirt to go with it. My charcoal colored

Chapter 0 - A Major Migration (Prologue)
Life was tough for farmers and regular people. Tough indeed. For the corruption of the aristocracy and cruelty of the king himself, the life of the residents has become more of a pain, than a gift. Extremely high taxes, strict and sometimes exaggerated rules given by the king, along with the poverty spread among the villagers has made the living in the kingdom almost impossible. Even a small disobedience of the rules has resulted in execution, and in some better scenarios, the transgressor has been imprisoned eternaly. Many people even decided to leave the kingdom, and try their luck in the unknown lands outside the castle walls.
Although, even despite that he could not care less about the people, the king himself noticed a huge loss of population within the walls. He knew that such act

“Has anything really bad happened to John?” Aris asked in a worried tone.
“As far as I know, not. This is just a mild concussion. He need just some sleep and he'll be okay.”
“That's... good. I'll be there in few minutes.”
“Is everything okay?” John asked as the nurse ended the call.
“Sure. Aris should be there in few minutes.”
“Oh. Then I should probably wait outside. Fresh air would do me good. Graseth, could you?...”
“'Kay.” Graseth said as he picked up the human and slowly walked to the exit.
Aris, in the mean time, was flying towards John's school a bit worried. She didn't want anything bad happen to John, it would be a shame if something would happen to him. He was her friend after all.

After a moment, the corner of the building slid out of place and fell to the streets below along with the Steel king mounted upon his weapon.

She grabs one which is greenish and shaped like a rain drop. “Why isn’t anyone here?” I ask.
“Because we are not in the Lay-Line yet.” She then points the crystal around the place. It suddenly glows bright green when pointed at the dusty old counter.

The glaring light gleamed through the blinds of the massive chamber. Through the window of the bright room, the sight of the gigantic city of steel that rose high towards the heavens could be viewed by those residing around the chamber. Metal and glass towers stretched all across the city along with dainty statues of idolized patriots of the Steel kingdom and goddesses that they admired through the ages. In clear sight of the chamber, the statue of Hephaestus the Greek god in midst of a waterfall fountain down in the city square could be seen easily from high above. Residing in the bright chamber, seated around an oval hazel wood table were the several well dressed noblemen All sat patiently with an almond stack of papers resting in their presences. At the head of the table sat the Steel King Caros in silver and black noble garments, wielding with peculiar smile upon his face.

My my problems grew when the colours also stuck to people and gave me different feelings even if someone completely different had the same colour. For example my eldest brother is a fiery red and fills me with a warm and safe feeling but a boy at my school is the same colour and the colour fills me with dread and disgust. The colours help me judge people and understand them but at the same time separates me from them.

Draconic Revelations - Chapter 5 - Flight PracticeI slowly woke up as sunlight shone on me through the window. I opened one eye lazily as I checked if I was still a dragon. Yup, I was. I still had everything - scales and scutes, claws and wings, everything. I slowly stood up on all fours and looked around the room, spreading my wings that were folded all the time when I was asleep. I heard some satisfying cracks. It felt good unfolding them as having them unfolded for a long time wasn't too satisfying, although I was asleep and couldn't really feel anything. I walked through the corridor, which was large enough for me. Seeing as Mr. Field made this all a proportionate size for dragons, I was pretty sure he was preparing this for us.

In just seconds, Gray was left alone. He looked in front of him and saw a brown tabby cat, it's face covered with a white mask that resembled a bird head, it's eyes unseen, covered by a pitch-black shadow. "Who are you!?" Gray snarled.

Is it even worth saying anything right now...?
That same question had been on my mind for so much of the journey home, I was pretty sure it was going to drive me mad. Madness or not, though, it was a valid question through and through. I honestly hadn't expected to see any of the group that had abandoned us to rescue Satoshi, at least not in this condition to say the least. Really, they'd come back mostly unscathed. Although I wasn't in any mood or frame of mind to forgive them, I knew that returning in that good of shape as quickly as they did had to have been an impressive feat of teamwork. Still... they were unworthy of being considered heroes in my book back then... especially after seeing what had happened to Kana.
Upon their initial return, I ignored their presences entirely. If they

His footsteps soon became hurried, and before he knew it he was pacing down the street. There's a strange vibe... Something seems different. In the shadowy alleys around he felt eyes on him, and avoided making contact with them in case of causing a confrontation. He had a good guess that someone had already heard about the Hydra's Spoil, and had come to take it for themselves. But there were all badly mistaken if they thought they could possibly take it. No one can take me. Jav thought. No one. He eventually arrived at the desired location, which to most commoners would look like an ordinary building, just another one among the rest. But that was intended thought for people unlike him. He knocked silently on the door, no louder than it should be, and waited for a reply.
