"Hey, sweetheart! Is everything alright?" It was her mother walking in. "Yes, mother! I'm just reading some interesting... Stuff! You know, some egyptian stuff."
"Hm. I'll go now. Everything's alright! Call me if you need anything." Adith walked out the door, shutting it silently. "Oh boy..." Evelyn sighed.
Suddenly... A loud rumble shook the ground. Outside, Adith did not hear a single thing, but Evelyn did. "What's happening?!" Evelyn jumped off the bed and held on to the door handle. Something pulled her wrist. "Ow! LET GO!" She yelled. "Mum!!" Adith did not hear anything at all. It held on to her tightly. "Hold on..." The rumbling stopped. A figure appeared. "Sphinx? Is that you?" Evelyn adjusted her glasses. "AH! Oh my god, it is you!! What are you doing here?! What
Lirin - Chapter 3They’re swarming, Nin thought to herself as she stood on the outskirts of a village, flicking the last bite of a fruit into her mouth and sucking the residue from her thumb, index, and middle fingers with light pops.

The closer she got to the settlement, however, the more clearer the limniris’s guess became. The area reeked of death and disease; the lirin hanging like a low miasma in the atmosphere that caused her to wrinkle her nose in disgust. Having already downed a shot of medicine for her unruly insides, Nin wasn’t particularly bothered by the large concentration of life energy escaping those individuals passing away, but she still had a hollow feeling in the pit of her stomach that made her quite uncomfortable. She tried her best to endure it, however; her interest having gotten the better of her.

And full of noises.
The sound of the rain, along with the birds chirping, insects croaking, goats whining, owls hooting, dogs barking, and lynxes screaming in the distance almost block out the sound of my thoughts yelling inside of my head.
I flee to the only other sanctuary I know: the flower garden.
At this time in late October, there aren't any flowers blooming. Right now, this place seems like any other part of the forest. But I know it isn't.
I sit on a stone bench with wolf heads chiseled into the sides and shiver. Rain prickles my scalp. Why didn't I grab my cloak before I stormed out of there? I’m such an idiot.
I probably should have just stayed there and listened to what my parents had to say. I'm sure they would have further explained their actions to me and...

Anastasia's eyes opened slowly and she took in her unfamiliar surroundings. the smell of cleaner stung her nostrils and a low beeping sounded from her left. however the most perplexing thing was the soft, low pitched singing that drifted to her ears and the slight pressure of a hand on her stomach.
"Jackson?" she called out to the voice. she was still too tired to move much and couldn't seem to look over at whoever was seated at her bedside. she had concluded that she was at a hospital. but who had brought her here?
"I am afraid not." replied the voice. " I have not seen your boyfriend nor am I sure of his whereabouts."

In Which we Meet Locke, His Mother and a Strange Lady
My name is Locke and while I do not entirely agree with the choice, given that I had little say in the matter as an infant, the baby registrar was signed thus and so my fate was sealed, at least in terms of my name. Who I am is something else entirely and it’s something I’m still trying to figure out, almost twenty eight years after my worthy mother signed an unworthy name to the birthing announcement.
I live in the city of London in the Glorious Kingdom of Angland under the reign of Queen Elizabeth IV. I honestly believe, in my spare moments, that the Royalty have little imagination and perhaps Queen Elizabeth III should have employed my mother to name her children. In that way, she would have had names such as Lyta (which my older sister was burdened with), Talia (my youngest sister) and I may have swapped my name for one with more weight and dignity. I believe that being ruled by Queen Lyta would also have been in

My name is AnthaCrane and ever since I was young I have been able to do magic. My mother is a sorceress and my father is mortal. I take after my mom but as I hit 15 and my temper got out of hand I started getting into dark magic. On my 16th birthday, after the party I put everyone to sleep with a spell and ran away taking my brewing stuff and several necromancy and dark magic spell books to a secret roofed forest 100 mile from my home. How did I get there? I can portal jump. I opened a portal to the dark woods and ran. I have been here about year now and have a small shack. There isn’t much room but I built it in some trees so the mobs leave me alone.
Tonight is my birthday. I turn 17 today. I go to the small pond by my shack in the trees with my fishing rod and cast the line into the dark waters. I wait a few minutes, singing an old song I liked. There is a tug on the line and I reel it in. When I get it up there was a good size bass on the line. I

"...Get in there you L'Cie scum!" A soldier said as he pushed Vanille into a closed cell, and shut it on her, locking her in. "Don't go anywhere girly. We'll figure out on what your sentence will be soon enough!" There were then footsteps of the soldier walking away, leaving her inside the dark cell as she sat on her knees and pulled out the Light Blue Chaos Emerald, in which she closed her eyes and smiled while keeping it near her chest.
"...Hey, that's the Light Blue Chaos Emerald!" A female voice said, making Vanille look to see that there was someone else with her, along with a pair of Green eyes in the shadows being shown. "Where did you get that?" She just stared at the mysterious female and knew she could trust her, due to the sound of the voice.
"I got it from someone you know." She said. "His name...Is Ken the Hedgehog."

So they went to the mall, they went to a couple shops before going to the arcade. It was mostly just kids who had gotten out of school and wasting their allowances on the games with adults sitting in the corner watching their kids or chatting. a

‘Oh please, you didn’t really believe all that stuff your little friend said back there did you?’

Where None SleepEven a dragonsteel bullet would barely fracture dragon scales, but if you happened to chance upon a chink in a dragon’s armor- a place where a scale had fallen loose- a dragonsteel bullet would bite deep, ripping through the hide and flesh and organs until eventually running into bone where it would stop. Dragonsteel bullets seldom broke through bone, though it wasn’t impossible since dragonsteel was iron fortified with dragon bone, but by the time the bullet got near enough to bone, the velocity was often too slow to do much more damage. A single bullet wouldn’t be fatal to a dragon, unless of course the chink in the armor was on the skull and the hide underneath led to the brain.Where None Sleep12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Keep calm. Search for rational explanations, I told myself.
A new lead as to the nature of my predicament presented itself in the form of a deafening explosion, as all around me, a new setting burst into existence. I was standing atop a city building. Whipping my head this way and that, trying to take in my sudden new surroundings, I was able to recognize it as one of the many skyscrapers not far from my home. But the city was not in any kind of state I had seen before. All around me, pillars of green smoke dwarfed the dilapidated, destroyed buildings they arose from on their way towards a reddened, ashy sky.
I watched in horror and amazement as the city block next to me was engulfed in an expanding dome of light. I feared it would swallow me up, bu
