I typed the last sentence onto the computer, absentmindedly swirling my finger around the rim of a glass of water. I sighed with relief, finally done with my essay on the extended metaphor found in The Grapes of Wrath. I typed my name at the bottom of the document; Katherine Baymont. Swiveling my desk chair around, I nearly spit out the water I had been drinking. My clock read 11:30.
I turned toward the window in disbelief. It had gotten significantly darker outside, the moon casting beams of light onto the grass below. I could see the Haller Science building to my left and Peak Woods to the north. Besides that, my window offered a view of the wilderness at the edge of the property. My dormitory is right at the edge of the boarding school’s campus. Now that I think about it, Yellow Peaks Boarding School is honestly set up more like a college than a boarding school.
I turned away from the window and frowned. That essay had taken much longer than expected; I was hoping to
Gladiator (part 3)Within three hours my team and I were gathered in a central chamber nestled in the lone mountain. A faint light swung overhead to illuminate the space, but other than that nothing but bare rock glistened. We stood around in a semi-circle with our center point being Glader who studied us individually for a few moments. His tail swept around him and came to a still rest in front. With a loud sigh, he cleared his throat to speak. "It's short notice I understand that much, but certain opportunities are not to be squandered. Yes, I've called you in for another takedown; we'll get to that shortly. Firstly I want to attend to a new development in our struggle."Gladiator (part 3)7 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters

Scorpio fights a Grim Reaper!Scorpio charged with expert skill, his sword catching and blocking the Reaper’s lightning-quick strikes as he closed in. He held to the chain, using it to either retrieve or cut short his attacks and change direction with the kama it was attached to. Coming up underneath one such strike, Scorpio spun around to drive his dagger between his ribs but he sidestepped the blow with unbe-lievable speed, coming back in to slash him across the face with the length of chain.Scorpio fights a Grim Reaper!8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
The impact threw him across the roof, skidding to a halt on his hands and knees just shy of going over the side. The ground was shaking even more vio-lently now and part of the roof had tilted, forcing him to lean forward in order to stand.
“You are not yet set to die, mortal. At least not by me. Don’t make me have to account for you as an early and unnecessary death.” Hardly adjusting his stance against the shifting slats, the Reaper inspected the blade of his kama. Through the black glow, skulls cou

Selene, Topaz, Jack, and Sunset were still walking and dancing again. The song Ease on Down the Road was playing again.
Jack: Cause there maybe times

We went outside and took a short walk talking about the basics of magic. “Magic is the life force that flows through every living thing in the realm. Once something dies, its magic is returned to the earth. This life force is capable of most everything, except bringing back the dead truly. Magicians, sorcerers, and necromancers channel the flow of magic through them to accomplish the desired feats.”
He continued “Magic is directed to do want you want it to do through words of power. Any word can be a word of power, but the word must be infused with magic. To do this, one must carve the word and desired affect on a creature with magic still running through it. Every Magician must create his own magic vocabulary, although some words can be used by any one, such as the spell of healing, which can both heal you physically and help guilty souls lie to rest.”
We arrived in a small clearing with a tree in the center. the tree was carved with hundreds

Wolno zbliżał się blady świt. Najpierw szaro, potem zaczęły się pojawiać kolory... aż prawie że całe niebo zapełniło się tęczą kolorów i błękitem. Chmury miała lekko różowy kolor, który przechodził w pomarańczowy, a potem w nieskazitelną biel. W pewnym momencie Nef zatrzymał się patrząc na nie.

A while after Mortis had engaged himself in a fascinating game of ‘Guess what that thing was’ John finally took his eyes off the microscope.
-Any clues?- asked Mortis.
-I am not one hundred percent sure yet, is a bit complicated- stated the forensic.
-What do you mean?-
-See it by yourself- offered John as he opened the way to the microscope.
Automatically Mortis landed his eyes on the microscope to observe. He soon realized that he had no idea where to begin looking at the piece of bone under the lens, so he waited
Tuckous Trisst is a Bad Wick: First ChapterThe amber glow of the mid-morning sun reflected charmingly off of the swirling diamond waves of the Eastern beach, sand sparkling in a way that proposed a challenge to even the most precious of expertly cut gemstones. With empty-bellied squawks, the seabirds flew overhead, side-by-side, directing their groups in search of a good feeding spot in the dancing waters by the shore. Just as they planted their slick and grabby flippers into the water's foam, they were disturbed by the sound of many chattering voices and an army of thumps vibrating the gritty earth beneath them. Once again, it was that time of the season, Uprooting Day – not that the now noisily fleeing avian creatures knew exactly that or they may have found the courage to stay. Over the waning hillside, those soft, yellow hairs appeared like a growing flame, intermingled with the black manes as the embers. Frilled and teased styles were only the opening act, paving the way for their otherwise inappropriately clad formsTuckous Trisst is a Bad Wick: First Chapter1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters

"You certainly are a interesting girl," he says, standing straight again, and fixing his robes again. "All the other woman I have dated would have been all over at me at this point, but not you. Somehow, your different. I like that." He smiles and knocks three times on the door, and the door unlocks and opens and he leads me to the exit, not saying a word, just smiling his strange smile. "I hope we can do this again sometime, how about tomorrow?"
Oh no I do not want to go through this again tomorrow. "No, sorry I'm busy tomorrow."
He replies with a simple "Hm." and closes the door behind him as he leaves, leaving me outside. I head home as fast as possible and as soon as I get home, I lock the doors and draw the shades, and change into some clothes that look comfortable to sleep in. I go upstairs and lay on the bed, which is extremely lumpy and uncomfortable, and put one of the pillows over my head trying to fall asleep.

They were shouting, screaming and banging their fists against the steel gates that separates them from the tall building he was in. The other screen showed a huge group of people crowded inside a circular arena. They all looked confused and scared and all of them were either Elves, Dwarfs, half-animal or Human.

Stan reacted instinctively. He leapt to his feet with a beastly snarl, letting his eyes flare green and his palms fill with light. The stranger, however, seemed unperturbed. He just stood there, ramrod straight and utterly still.
The stranger's eyes were blue, but an unnatural blue... so pale and so bright, they looked eerie. He had long, black dreadlocks, tied off his face with twine. He looked to be in his thirties. He wore a long jacket and pants, despite the heat, which seemed to be made from the white, scaly skin of some kind of Mutoid. There was a scarf, or a neck-tie, or something, made of the same material, around his neck. But there were two far more distinguishing features to this stranger. For one, he seemed to emanate a feeling that made Stan was to shudder, turn tail and run as fast as he could. The feeling of being in close proximity to a natural predator.
The second feature was that the man had the mark of a Radioactive over the left side of his face.

Uncertain, Tourajé began to give Léruc his paw but stopped just as he extended it out to him. Should he see the other memory Léruc wanted to show him? What would he see should he agree to it? Would he even want to see it? Although he wasn’t sure, Tourajé did find himself curious as to what this memory could be. He gave his paw to Léruc who took Tourajé’s paw in his own and then proceeded to place his other paw on Tourajé’s head one more time. Slowly, the two of them closed their eyes.
When Tourajé opened his eyes, he found himself standing inside an old house. There, he saw two humans standing with their backs turned to him. Moving closer, Tourajé discovered that they were observing an egg that was placed above the fireplace. It rested in a blanket that served as a bed for the egg. As he took a closer look at the egg, Tourajé was able to determine that this egg was in fact a dragon

He pressed his lips harshly to mine.
When he pulled away, I was speechless. It...
It worked! Ha HA!
He held my hand while we walked to lunch, and when his friends called out to him, he ignored them and just sat next to me. I was so happy, I'd finally had a guy. Not just any guy, though. My dream guy!
His silky black hair, large frame, and dark blue eyes were all I ever wanted. I'll admit, I could curl up pretty nicely on his lap because of the size difference between us. I also loved the way he smelled. Almost like, um...
Yeah, he smelled like coffee and chocolate, a warm, cozy scent. I giggled as he popped a strawberry in my mouth. Smiling, he ate one too, and I heard snide laughter from the next table over.

Upon arriving, Jarod and the twins split off in a different direction, leaving me to roam the park with Alma. I couldn’t complain about being alone with her, but I still felt nervous around her as often as not. She was just so… different. “You don’t believe that I simply wanted to share a big wheel with you? This isn’t the London Eye, but I do enjoy the view.” she claimed. I replied “If there is anything I’ve learned about you, it’s that you rarely do anything for just one reason.” The corner of her mouth twitched. “I must confess that I’m glad you’re starting to know me. I bought this park due to the large number of incidents that have occurred here lately. Unfortunately, I may have been too late.” In my mind,Best Friend For Hire, Entry 19821 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
