Chapter: 2 Mother Knows Best
I sat on the edge of the bed as Mother fixed a washcloth. "I will just be a moment, Hans.", she assured as I swayed my legs back and forth. She sat beside me and held my face still. "Now this may sting, but I need you to be brave for me. Alright?"
"Alright.", I nodded, immediately wincing as she placed the cloth against my wound.
"Momma's almost done...There, that's all." She smiled down at me, tilting my chin up so I could gaze back at her. "Feel better?"
"I'm starting to. Thank you, Mother."
She smirked and scooted in, wrapping her arm around me. "Now, tell me what happened."
I took a deep breath and began, "Well, Liam didn't like the fact that I punched him and-"
"Hans...why did you hit your brother?"
"Because I had something to prove to the others."

Chapter: 1 Whiteout
It's crazy how fast your entire life can flash before your eyes. Years of pain become intense moments, each darting throughout your mind like a slow-working poison. Amidst it all, you can't help but ask yourself, "Was it worth it?....What did I contribute?...Am I a hero....or just another power-hungry fool trying to make his way in the world?"
"I would never shut you out..."
"You can't marry a man you've just met."
"You can if it's true love!"
"Never shut you out..."
"I leave Prince Hans in charge."

Christmas TruthThe world hung in front of her, temptingly, like a giant glitterball, the multi-faceted kind, reflecting her thoughts back at her, as she thought of her imminent journey. All the goodness, the joy, the sparkle and the expectation of Christmas reached out to her, magnified, in those dancing patterns of light. The thoughts of others came too with all the dreams and desires of children, all the goodwill and the very heart of the celebration which made her catch her breath.Christmas Truth3 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
She knew she could reach out and touch those who yearned for touch and her very presence would offer hope for the future. All those souls who wanted to savour a piece of heaven, along with the traditional feast and all those who had no food would feel the compassion she radiated and their bellies would feel less empty. She was indeed food for the soul in many ways.
To those who would ask inwardly and silently of her whereabouts, she would say she was everywhere. Everywhere that was needed and everywhere that was not nee

I walked down the road with my hands in my pockets. I let out a low sigh as I heard my stomach growl again. Slowly I looked around to see if there was anyone near. Not a single trace of life around me. Actually not even me. I kept walking in hope to find someone. Above me I heard crows fly away and a weak breeze made the leaves shiver. The night was chilly and I felt the dew form on my bare skin. Without caring I just kept walking. Another breeze carried a sweet smell towards me. I smelled it and smiled. Fresh blood. Following the scent I started running. Surprisingly quiet I ran over the fallen leaves and stopped by a small bridge. A low gasp left my lips as I saw the person lying on the ground. A young girl with her chest ripped open and her heart was gone. I took a step closer being careful if the thing that did this was still here. The girl´s arm has been ripped away and thrown several meters away. I frowned. A big puddle of blood sur
99.9% Animal - IntroductionMy name is Phoenix, I'm currently sixteen and is the only guy in this strange dimension that hasn't grown fluffy ears and a tail like everyone else. What I mean by this is, a few days ago most of planet earth has gone through a change that I wouldn't even think to call natural. You see, everyone on this planet is an animal, partly. My mom's a cat, my dads a dog, and my older sister is a child eater. That's a lamia joke, she's part snake from the bottom up to the waist and my parents only have the ears and tail of said animals. Though my sis has tried to eat me before to only see if she could. Does she think she can simply puke up a person once their stuck in her?! I don't know, and I don't want to find out for as long as I can keep her out of my room while asleep or avoid being alone with her entirely. Back to the point.

“You guys sure we can be in here?” Kayla asked closing the door behind her as it gave a click.
“Why not? It’s big, open and full of potential spooks!” Kami said excited for the small pre-halloween party with herself, Kayla, Riley, Alice, Josie, Jessica, and of course her best pal Derek, aka the Hero DarkNeon.
“We’ll be fine. Not a lot of people come here anyways. Some haunting rumors and what not. The usual deal,” Derek said putting down his bag. The Plan was to spend one night in the house and experience dread and just to mess around in good natured fun.
“So what kind of scary stories are based in these halls?” Riley asked.
“They say that a spirit wanders the halls still…” Josie said.
“And nothing. That’s just it. A spirit wandering the halls. Never said it was fancy” sh

"Indeed," replied Baba Yaga. "Where have you stowed your heart this turn?"
"I did the usual needle-in-a-duck-egg. So absurd! I must laugh even as I expire. And what of you? You are freer than I. Shall you help or hinder?"
"Hinder, methinks," said the witch, sipping her tea. "If I help too much they stop respecting me."
"A wise choice," replied Koschei. "We must never lose their respect."
A young man’s voice sounded from outside. "Izbushka, izbushka! Stan' k lesu zadom, ko mne peredom!"
The hut stopped spinning. "That means I must be going," said Koschei. "Good fortune to you, my dear."

Like a Mouse in a Cage - Girl to MouseIn Sloth's domain, time and space were ever in flux. Hours became seconds; seconds became days. Mortals who visited always fell into some routine, or stopped activity altogether once they realized the futility of it all. The eponymous devil was enjoying her latest harvest's imminent demise: this one was a runner, trying to escape the boundaries of Hell - as if there were such a thing. Sloth teleported around her realm at will, peering out at her victim from behind doors, around corners, and upon roofs. She consciously twisted the shape of her domain, adding labyrinthine confusion on top of the spatial-temporal distortions. She did so love to watch their final struggles. He would give up eventually, like all the rest. His soul already belonged to her; he just hadn't realized it.Like a Mouse in a Cage - Girl to Mouse2 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

They said he was mad. He probably was. But that didn't stop him hanging the bottles from meagre strings around his house, filling them with perfumes, with flowers, with twisted bits of metal that glittered in the sunlight.
It didn't stop him nailing horseshoes over every doorframe, or pouring trails of salt along every doorway and windowsill. He slept with a horseshoe under his pillow. The slightest noise would jerk him awake at night, shivering, clutching the metal ring. Then he would drift back into uneasy sleep, listening to the bottles clanking in the wind.
He swore, in the morning, that the salt was disturbed by the prints of tiny feet.
The front of his house was dilapidated. The windows were boarded up, green paint was peeling from the door. Ivy and clematis had wound insidiously into the brickwork, long since darkened by the city smoke.
And yet the back of the house was verdant as a

“Fine”, I said. “Go ahead, impress me.”
“Well”, the creep began reluctantly, “I’ve been tracking down a powerful being. A supernatural. He goes to this school, and he’s a…vampire.” He paused to shove his hands into his pockets in an awkward gesture. “Unfortunately, though, he knows that I’ve been following him, and he’s had more than enough of me- which is why I need you. You’re task is to track him down for me, to be my eyes and ears; don’t worry, you’ll be able to pull this off fairly easily, for no-one, not even him, would suspect such an innocent-looking girl like you.”
He must have seen me smirking, for his face immediately turned stoic, and he continued, “Now, whether you believe me or not, you’re stuck with me, and you’re going to be stuck with me until you fulfill you’re your task- and your agreement.

It reminded him of the day they met...Dawn appearing in the garden- knowing his name...
No response. Of course. That was Setanta.
He took the cream- and once he applied it, Dawn flinched a few times. Ever since these scars got beaten into his face, he never got a chance to treat them.
Before you know it, the cream seeped into his pores. Taking away the redness and puffiness from his skin. The scars turning to a shade of lip pink- but it wasn't completely gone.
When he was done, Dawn gently took the cream and put it back up. Without looking up to Sei, "..Thank you, Sei-.. I- mean.. "
Jeez- old habits. Calling him the nickname he gave Setanta. No- that wasn't it.. it was...

Chapter 1 - A Whole New Dimension
I’ve never been very good at lucid dreaming. Read and seen a lot about it, but only on occasion accomplished to do so. So I guess I should have realized I wasn’t in a dream when I closed my eyes and felt a hard cold ground beneath me, instead of my soft blankets and pillow.
I opened my eyes and sat up, looking around to see trees. The sky was grey, the clouds like those on a stormy day. I sat up and started to stand but stopped when I heard a growl like noise behind me. I
