"Mn...father's gone already?" Akira grumbled and grabbed a quick snack before dressing for school. This was quite common since her mother disappeared 2 years back. Before heading out for school, Akira grabbed a chain and shoved it into her backpack. At the campus she met up with the disciplinary committee. It was nearing the end of the second week of school. Alex stood in front, reviewing the code of conduct. Various members reported misconduct they observed and handed in the required paperwork.
"You are all dismissed." Alex waved them off as he read over the reports. They stood, saluted and left. Akira stayed behind.
"Captain." she straightened her posture before Alex.
"Yes, Yuen san?" Alex looked up casu
Asteri Tale Chapter 18 Sheep Teddy traversed the streets following the upperclassman who escorted Capella and Ria away. He worked to stay among the shadows to not draw any unwanted attention. "Where could he be taking them?" Teddy stopped to rest. After catching his breath, he continued to chase after the trio. They led him to the middle school campus. "Why here?" He his among the trees on the edge of campus and watched. They met up with a group of upperclassmen. "Tori's here?" After several minutes of them talking they all got up. Teddy jumped back when he realized they were gone, he had spaced out.Asteri Tale Chapter 18 Sheep3 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters
"What are you doing Saveli?" a familiar voice sneered. Teddy turned to see Reese standing, with his hands on his hips, leering down at him.

"C'mon Saveli!" she urged. "Join us at lunch today!" she poked him on the arm. Kori smiled and urged along with Ria.
"I-I can't..." Teddy's voice wavered and his face turned bright. "P-please leave me alone!" he pleaded weakly. Kobayashi sensei walked in and began his lecture, saving Teddy from further harassment. As class went on Ria made many less than subtle attempts to sway Teddy's resolve. Capella looked away frustrated by Ria's carefree antics. Lunch finally arrived. Teddy dashed out of the room in order to avoid the mob after him. Both Ria and Kori laughed and made their way to the cafeteria. Ria spent lunch narrating her past adventures to her friends. She use to travel the globe with her family before her brother died in an accident. After that the

Mira awoke to a pillow impacting her face.
"Wake up loser!" an older girl with brighter pink hair and pear green eyes said as she lifted the pillow she had thrown. "I don't want to be seen with you on our way to school today, so get moving!" she derided.
"Fine, fine!" Mira waved off her sister. "Get out Ayako!" she rolled her eyes as her sister stood, hands on her hips, and glared at her. At Mira's command, Ayako threw the pillow in her hands, hitting Mira with it again.
"Don't sass me twerp!" She scoffed then walked out. Mira sneered then prepared for school. She has a fairly bland life outside of her sister's harassment. Her parents were fairly apathetic towards her but she preferred it that way. She didn't like to stand out. She purposely made errors in school to keep her grades average and dressed modesty to achieve obscurity. She had few friends but never saw them out of school or club activities. She enjoyed art but so

"I think I'm gonna pass tonight, boys." Aren scratched the back of his head and smiled.
"Aw not you too, Saveli!" one of the guys whined.
"First Tamsin and now you?" another shrugged. "More ladies for us!" The rest of the guys cheered in agreement then marched off. Aren laughed for a bit as a different person approached cautiously.
"You didn't have to do that." a soft masculine voice said with guilt. Aren turned around.
"Nah! It's been awhile since we last hung out, Tori!" Aren gave a cheeky grin. Tori gave a small smile back. "You're more fun then those guys anyway!"
"Th-thanks." Tori blushed lightly. The pair departed the now empty school together. They passed by a park along the way to an arcade. They played

No light shone through the small window of the cave. Two of the moons had set not to long ago, one was sinking it's way below the horizon and the sun had not yet risen. Permafrost could see the distant twinkle of the stars, though they didn't seem to light up the entire sky like they did back in the Ice Kingdom. It must be because of the mountains.
'I guess what father said was true,' Permafrost wonders to herself, placing the scroll she had picked up back in its place. 'It is always darkest before the dawn.'
Permafrost hadn't been able to fall back asleep after waking up in the entrance cave. Her father's words kept replaying in her head every time she closed her eyes.
"But not all of us wanted the war to end." The voice slithers through her brain once again, making her shiver. She shakes her head and forced the dream to the back of her mind. She picks up another scroll, staring at like she had done with the others, trying to make up the squiggles she knew wher
Asteri Tale Chapter 14 Sagittarius Evening set in, Sal sat on the back side of the roof to his house. He pointed a finger up to the stars. The city lights made them hard to see. He hummed a pleasant tune as the slight breeze made his hair flutter over his golden eyes. The peace of dusk was welcomed after the long day. "I wonder what tomorrow will bring?" He closed one eye and flicked his wrist like firing a gun.Asteri Tale Chapter 14 Sagittarius7 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters
"Oi asshole!" An older male poked his head out the sliding glass door. "Get your ass down here!" he called up to Sal.
"Shaddup!" Sal yelled back then leapt off the roof. The older guy crossed his arms and leered down to Sal.
"Food!" he raised one hand and pointed, with his thumb, to the open door.
"I got it!" Sal scoffed. "I was about to come in before you so rudely interrupted me, Seth!" he derided in a sarcastic tone.
"Liar! You've fallen asleep up there before!" Seth retorted in a serious voice. Sal laughed
Asteri Tale Chapter 13 Tiger There was a slight creak of his bed as Ceres rolled to look at his clock. He hobbled to his feet, still half asleep. His classmates were on a field trip, so he stayed home. "Man, I slept for ages." He only planned on a short nap which somehow turned into the better part of the day. He'd just be getting out of class, had he gone. His hair stuck out more than normal. He looked to the bathroom mirror. Loose sweat pants and a crumpled t-shirt. Today was the day Shea found out if she made the team, meaning Alex was coming later on. He smiled softly at the thought then scrutinized his shabby get up. "He can't see me like this!" He started the shower then went to pick out the perfect outfit. After today he would no longer be coming over daily, so Ceres needed to leave a lasting impression. He stripped down and stepped into the water. He carefully and thoroughly washed all over. He pressed down on the tufts of hair in the back until they laidAsteri Tale Chapter 13 Tiger9 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters

Sai rolled over and continued to sleep.
"Sai wake up!" Tori stood next to her, fully dressed for school. She groaned a little but didn't get up. "SAI!" he tore off her blanket and lifted her off the bed.
"Ah!" she instinctively grabbed onto him. Her hair was a tangled mess. "Put me down, Tori." she grumbled, still half asleep.
"We're going to be late." he gave her a stern look. She always overslept. He was used to it by now but they actually had a reason to be at school early given the recent events. "Zeka already left."
"Fine, fine!" she caved and he finally put her down. They lived with their aunt and cousin after their parents abandoned them. Sai 9 years ago then Tori 2 years later. She originally only stayed for school but when Tori got dropped off, there was no going back. Their aunt wasn't particularly nice but Sai kept to herself and never really noticed. Tori however, took everything hard.
Chapter 10 Cancer Syrus grasped at his head in frustration as he ran. "Why did it have to be her of all people?" He let out an exasperated breath. He looked at the message from Arlin again. ["I'm waiting with Sharpe at the designated location. Come join me, I'm bored!"] At the bottom of the message was an address. It was an empty office building on the opposite side of the city. "How the hell did he get there so quickly?" Syrus ran into a nearby subway station. He didn't have the time to run the whole way. He grew more unsettled with each passing minute. When he finally got off, he darted out of the car, pushing people out of his way. "I can't believe I didn't see this coming!" Syrus growled to himself as he ran through back roads leading to the specified place. His lungs felt as if they would collapse. His legs ached but he couldn't stop now. Not with what's at stake. His thoughts circled in his head. "Why did ArlinChapter 10 Cancer15 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters

She ate a light breakfast then headed out. -Things had been hard since Yasu was born. Due to complications during delivery, her mother passed away. Anya and her father resolved to raise him to the best of their abilities. That was easier said than done.

Anya had to give up everything to care for him and their father had to work multiple jobs to support them. Despite her abrupt absences, Kid and Skai went
Asteri Tale Chapter 8 Bird It was quite early in the morning. Reese rolled out of bed, hoping to avoid his parents. They were yelling, a lot. He sighed and hastily dressed for school. "Here we go again." He had no idea what they were so worked up about and he didn't intend to find out. An abundance of religious imagery lined the hall leading to the door from his bedroom. Reese rolled his eyes and practically ran for the door. This had been his routine for as long as he could remember. He never bought into all that 'higher power' nonsense. "Success is wrought from your own hard work not by riding the coattails of some false prophets." He despised how strongly his parents believed in such garbage. They of course rejected that their own son harbored such blasphemous thoughts. He shuddered at the thought of the inhumane things he'd endured at their hands. He stopped in to a small cafe on the way to school for a quick breakfast.Asteri Tale Chapter 8 Bird17 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters

-The sun had barely begun to rise. A tall boy clad in all black walked the street. His red eyes burned with vengeance. His black hair clung to his face, dripping with sweat. A singled red strand stuck out from the rest. He stopped behind an abandoned building. A meeting place. He crouched down leaning on the wall, clutching his head. Tormented by the misfortune, the injustice of his part. Several minutes went by in silence. The faint sound of footsteps. Closer, louder. The approached. A shorter more stout figure, face obscured by a dark red hooded sweatshirt. The guy stood. He walked out of the blackness into the light of dawn.
"Snake." his dark voice resounded in the near lifeless street. The hooded figure removed the hood, Alex stood before the sinister guy.

"This reminds me of when you were little." he started in a playful tone. "You would hide in my bag for school...what the hell happened to that?"
"Eh, d-don't bring up such pointless rubbish." she shot him an insulted look. "What's gotten into you lately?"
"Nothing..." he shrugged. There was an answer he just didn't want to say it. They arrived at the grand campus for their 3rd day of class. Ceres turned and stopped Shea.

"That's a choice he made for himself, it doesn't concern us." He tried to reason with his naive friend.
"There's nothing wrong with making more friends, dear." Skai's mother chimed in from the front seat of the car as she drove.
"Yeah!" Kid pouted. "Just think where you'd be without me?" Kid cheerfully pointed to himself with both hands.
"Mmm." Skai rolled his eyes again, mildly embarrassed. "I guess you have a point." Kid smiled

Zakaren walked along the borders of the clan that he had once been apart of. It had been almost four months since he was banished. Nobody saw him anymore since he would be gone before they had the chance to catch him. He had studied the entire border of the clan and constantly monitored when patrols were sent out. He wasn't quite sure as to why he was doing it, though. He had bothered to do it before. He was rogue now and he wasn't sure why he didn't just leave completely. He just knew that something was keeping him here for a reason.
Zakaren suddenly stopped in his tracks when he sensed he was being watched. He looked towards where Alderan was watching him. He was on the cliff from when he and Fenrirr talked about him during the meeting. Zakaren's eyes narrowed and his blood boiled as he felt anger and hatred settle in. //I'll have my revenge one day. Then we'll see what you do when everything is taken from you, just like you did to me.//

I sat on the cold hard floor in a dark dungeon of Hell. A small hole the size of my slim body shone a little light into the room. I tried to fly out, but my wings were pinned down so I couldn’t fly. As I tried every single way to get out, I heard someone call my name. The calling became louder, until all I heard was “Lyra! Lyra! LYRA!” I realized who was calling. Finn. “Finn?” I yelled. “Not too loud,” he snapped. “I don’t want to let the devils know I’m here.” He got his spear from the gem on his chest. His gem was an emerald. My gem was a ruby. The devils covered up my gem so I couldn’t summon my sword. Finn tried throwing the spear at my chained hands, but failed. He summoned two more, and the spear that was laying down has now shimmered up and disappeared. Finn threw the two spears and broke the chains. I carefully unpinned my wings, which were now bloody. It hurt to flap my wings, but I successfully flew o

Skai caught one that was headed right for his mesmerized friends face. Another landed at Ed's feet, he looked down at it then to the people around him and kicked it to the side. Next was headed for Aren, who stood in front of Alex. He stepped aside hoping to catch Alex off guard and get hit by it. Contrary to his expectations, Alex extended one hand and caught it without even turning his head. Everyone stared back in awe.

"Yes?" he rubbed his eyes still half asleep.
"I'll do it!" Arlin resolved.
"Excellent!" Alex howled in gratification. His tired expression vanished and was replaced by elation. He walked back down the hall he came from and came back with the pouch. "You'll be needing this." Arlin took it and looked inside.
After Alex got dressed for school the pair headed off together.

Warning: Some language.
It was early in the evening and the sun had started to go down. Some clouds were scattered throughout the sky and there was a slight cool breeze now and then and Zakaren was sitting up in a tree while his elder brothers were talking. Although, he wasn't paying any attention to them. He was just watching the meeting for the new apprentices and those who vanished their training for their rank within the clan.
//I wonder why I'm never allowed to be anywhere near the meetings...// "Shouldn't Zakaren be an apprentice by now?" Zakaren glanced towards them when he heard his name and his eyes narrowed slightly but he remained silent. Fenrirr, his oldest brother, had spoken. His second oldest brother, Alderan, was leaning back against a tree next to Fenrirr. They were both a small distance from Zakaren, but were not exactly close, either. "Apparentl

"You don't think its better this way, Yuen san?" Alex argued. "Would you prefer to have it early and be torpid in class?" he shrugged as he walked to the door allowing others to leave before him.
"I- I guess you're right, Captain." She answered skeptically.
"Maybe tubby just doesn't want us to focus on how out of shape he is in gym!" Sal jeered in jest as he winked at Akira. She gasped and looked to Alex with unease.
