Jerry is rolling through town on the clear Thursday evening looking for one of the many antique stores in the area. This was a unique one for his area though, since it sells antiquities from other parts of the world instead of just his home state, including selections of European, Oriental, and African pieces. He was in the neighborhood that should contain the address listed on the store’s website, from within his Volkswagen Golf, yet he can’t find the store. He drives in circles trying to find the store before he notices a small “Antiques” sign in the window of one of the houses, one that was almost too small to make out from the street at a quick glance, but could be easily when he concentrates on it. He parks in front of the house, and exiting his car, he walks up to the front door and enters, hearing a bell jingle when he opens the door.
As he enters, he hears a man yelling from the back of the h

Val took the drawing and studied it. "Ahh, it's looks like a furry human! No wonder I couldn't figure this out! How do you know what they look like?"
Mand kicked dirt over the fire and began to gather her things. "You were probably too young to remember. Dad had a pre-war book that was filled with pictures and facts about animals from around the world. I used to look at that thing for hours."
Val placed the drawing of the gorilla into her book and closed it. "What happened to it? The book I mean?"
"It was lost in the fire, the same time we lost Mom."
"Oh," Val said nothing more. Being too young to remember, Val had questioned her sister several times about what their mother was like. Mand always seemed uncomfortable every time it was brought up.
"So Cain's Point is next," asked Val, attempting to change the conversation. "I can't believe it's been a year since we've been back to the coast."
Mand nodded, "Yeah, we
The Adventures of EBAC part 2I quickly realized I had left my spell book but I didn't go back for it which would be a grave mistake but I didn't know at the time. I was out there slashing at endermen when a group of them came up behind me and I was surrounded. I knew I would be fine but I didn't want to die and lose my stuff. Suddenly I saw a bunch of endermen get zapped by lasers arrows and harming potions. It was Epicbruce AwesomeJaz and countbleck64 firing at the endermen. just as we were deafeating the last of them the crack glowed even brighter and this tiny enderdragon came at us. it was about the size of a steve if it stood up strait.

The Sigma swarm, spreading through the streets of Tealios like hungry locusts in a field of crops, showed no signs of stopping. It was likely that less than 50 of the lifeless robots had been taken down, and there was nothing left to fight back with. Barricaded on the upper level of the building that they had hidden in, it was all that the Bluestone security team could do to watch as the Sigmas attacked those not lucky enough to get indoors. Several of the robots were smashing into the buildings as well, trying to get at the panicking people hidden inside.
Xian had run out of bullets in the fallen guard’s rifle that he had picked up, and there were no other firearms besides Arkea’s pistol in the group. Several other citizens that had made it up the stairs with the Bluestone team, and several of them were not happy.
“I bet that you traitors are at fault for that!” An angry looking man had taken hold of Rain by the shirt. “Hey, back off!” Ca
Interlude - Tracing the CentaurTwo months, one snowstorm, at least three red herrings and several attacks later, Ares, Nike and Cadmilos were finally nearing the place where Cheiron the Centaur was said to dwell. They had ventured far north, across the Transylvanian mountains and through the woodlands yonder those and were now standing on a narrow plateau, overlooking an elongated valley where a broad river was snaking its way towards some distant ocean, partly ice covered and almost black against the snow-covered ground. Forests of pines and spruces were climbing the mountainside, where wildlife in the form of deer, stag, wild boars, red foxes and furry bears could be seen. Eagles were soaring the sky and smaller birds were chirping among the trees. The cold air was hardly moving and it breathed a crispy sense of calmness, of peacefulness that felt restful for the three Olympians after their long trek.Interlude - Tracing the Centaur11 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters

A loud beeping quickly awoke Jerry from his deep slumber. His hand swung over to the nightstand next to his bed and slapped the alarm clock hard, ending the reign of heart wrenching noise. It was six in the morning, Monday, and he groaned in discomfort before slowly got out of bed and stretching. Another workday was ahead for him, and he wasn’t looking forward to it. He was one of two who did any work, had to be there five days a week, and got to watch as his coworkers sat around and did nothing. Again Jerry groaned, and then he went and got ready for the early work day in Washington.
After he had gotten ready, taking a shower, getting dressed, and having breakfast, the doorbell rang. Jerry jumped at this very unexpected noise before walking to his front room to peak out the window. He didn’t see anyone at the door, or anyone at all on the unusually quiet street. Normally there were cars going all over the plac
