Bridget woke up some time later, crumpled up on a couch. Margaret was sitting in a rocking chair across from her, a guilty look on her face.
“Sorry, I should have told you Carter was a giant,” she said with a small laugh.
Bridget's heart beat faster. “That wasn't a dream?” Margaret shook her head. “Mannn. So, so, there’s… a giant. Just through that door.”
Margaret nodded. “I've moved your boxes into your room, I hope you don't mind.”
“Wait, you did what?” Bridget paused, unable to continue. She didn't want to stay here, but she didn't have much of an option!
“Oh, it’s not so bad! You’ll get used to Carter in a jiffy!”
“Yes, and you kind of hurt his feelings.”
Bridget wet her lips, practically flabbergasted by that comeback. “I-I don’t know if you realize this, but you have a giant in the

I see Selina rush back into the room, “Ave, are you alright, how are your contractions? I mean, your grandma let us back in sooner than I expected-”
“Selina, I’m fine. I’m not having a contraction.” I sigh, pushing myself back up on the bed.
“Hey, Ave, hon, what’s wrong?”
“It’s nothing.” I awkwardly look down.
“Oh, come now, Avery, you can’t just lie to your girlfriend like that.” The old lady suddenly calls me out.
“I may be old, Avery, but I’m not a judgmental bat.” She turns to Selina. “Her grandfather is actually gay, as well.”
“Wait, really? I didn’t know that, Ave.”
“I didn’t either.” I do a terrible job at rolling with this cover story.

“You know, this does put an interesting spin on the world,” Sirius observed as he and Harriet lounged in the sitting room of Daniel’s house.
They were both sitting in recliners, upside down. DIDS was presently doing his best to curl up and sleep in Harriet’s belly-button.
“I know, right?” Harriet said. “I started when I was trying to figure out the egg.”
Sirius laughed. They were home alone at the moment. Sirius said that it was because everyone else

I was out shopping at the mall one day when I heard explosions in the distance - a pretty obvious sign that something big was going on. Pulling my trusty camera out of my bag, I ran off to find the source. It didn't take long - I was soon at the entrance, where I saw nothing less than Miracle Heart herself, engaged yet another battle against evil!
...OK, maybe I should go back a bit and explain myself. I'm Keitarou Tomoya, your typical teenage school reporter (well, I have another name now, but we'll get to that later). At this point, I'd been focusing on one story in particular - that of Miracle Heart, a mysterious magical girl who'd been appearing around town and fighting unknown enemies. No one knew quite what the deal here was, but I was determined to find out!
And now there she was, right in front of the mall. Opposing her was a red bird creature I'd seen accompanying some of the other villains in the past. It seemed to be a

“Oh, you have?” Lady Spruce asked, looking up from the bunch of notes she was holding. She was a very beautiful lady with her black hair pinned-up and wearing an elegant gown whose pattern and colors resembled the wings of a moth.
“We are quite interested in hearing them” Lord Fir added in a cheery voice. Just like Spruce he appeared rather good looking. Long dark hair was falling down his back and his robes had a pattern similar to Spruce's.
“Buuut first l'd like to know who this young lady might be?”
“M...my name is Betty. Betty Jollywaters.” I answered Fir and bowed since Aspen and her brothers did it as well.
“An outsider, I presume?” Spruce muttered curiously. She examined me from head to toe yet didn't appear all too happy about my presence. “Uh, w..what? Actually I get along well with people in my school...” I stammered baffled.

This is the story about Elenore, or as some of her friends are privileged enough to call her; Elli. It’s a story about personal growth. Yes, in all possible meanings of the term.
Elli was born an aristocrat, fostered to be a presentable young lady by her strict aunt Solveig on a large estate, somewhere in northern Scandinavia. Outwards, the skinny, green eyed, freckled little redhead was always courteous, the perfect daughter. Inside, however, she was silently rebelling against what she perceived to be a life without choice or freedom. When first opportunity presented itself, she left home to study abroad at a mere twelve years of age. Only occasionally did she returned home after that, to celebrate Midsummer or join her family and friends on the traditional elk hunt.
Her parents had wanted her to study finance in London but she chose fashion design in Paris, much to their disappointment. Th

It's been little less than a year since I have seen my mother and father, she thought in her head, this will definitely be rather awkward. Rose had been gone for so quite awhile, training with a tom that had wanted her to murder a cat that had killed her sister so long ago. And I listened to him, I killed Shade because that was what he wanted.
Yet it wasn't so bad that Shade had died. If he hadn't been killed Rose might not have ever learned the truth, unless of course Soul had told her, but Rose wasn't too sure that Soul would. He seemed to like to keep the little things from her.
Rose slowed her pace, glancing at her brother. "I'm kind of nervous." she admitted after moments of silence. "I haven't seen them in such a long time. What did they think when I left?"
Breeze stopped walking, "Well, they had looked around for you for quite a time, but after a while, they
Ro and Nathan 2Close to fifty people were gathered on the beach, a surprising feat considering the beast had only been discovered the night before. An advance party consisting primarily of local fishermen and hunters had attempted a form of restraints before the soldiers arrived. Many had stayed after the troops arrived and were now helping with sturdier bindings. An occasional argument broke out over the materials or placement, but were often settled without actual fisticuffs. A few brave, or perhaps just foolhardy, young men who had climbed onto the beast’s chest were making a game of trying to throw their fellows off-balance as the ground under them rose and fell with enormous breaths. One of these impetuous souls was the first to spot Shemig’s presence on the beach. Quickly getting the attention of one of his cohorts, the young man climbed off the giant chest to greet the Imperial official, his light brown hair glinting blond in the sunlight to match his golden eyes.Ro and Nathan 21 week ago in Introductions & Chapters

Another fish bone slapped against Cracklepaw's shoulders, followed by snickering. Cracklepaw furiously glanced over his shoulder, and spotted Barkpaw and Wasppaw hastily trying to hide their giggling. Wasppaw had one paw over his muzzle, but his eyes were bright with amusement, while Barkpaw merely shined his famous crooked grin. He then whispered something into Wasppaw's ear, causing the younger apprentice to erupt with laughter.
Abruptly, Cracklepaw launched himself in front of the two apprentices, and bore his teeth into an angry growl. His fangs glistened in the sunlight, his ragged brown tabby fur bristled aggressively, his ears were drawn back, his knotted tail brandished fervently behind him, and his large claws dug harshly into the soft camp soil.
Wasppaw immediately ceased his laughter and nervously gulped. Even Barkpaw looked a tad bit surprised at his brother's malevolent behavior. He gave Wasppaw a hard shove. "Come on Wasppaw…let's go bother Lilypaw or something," he
Sabine Wren TG TF Chapter 16 Everyone sat in the small farmhouse, eating a homecooked breakfast that the farmer and his children made up. "We can't thank you enough for letting us hide here." Hera said to the father as he placed his little girl in his lap. "Anything to help out the rebel cause." The father said. "And please, call me Phil, Phil Baxton." He added in. "I have to be honest, if you guys would've crashed a couple weeks ago, I would've killed you. I wasn't suprised that the Empire caused the fires, but I did believe them on that you caused it......" Phil said as he paused. "My wife and my sister-in-law were in the city when the fires happened..... Her sister died in the fires and my wife suffered severe burns. I didn't want the children to see her like that, so I left them at a neighbors as I sat at her deathbed." Phil finished.

“Aw come on, don’t be like that.” Birky continued to watch Kirsten curiously examine the protein shake labelled ‘Monster Mass.’
“I dunno.” She wanted to be the best on the stage, and always aspired to be, but not through the use of drugs. “What if it screws up and something happens to me?”
“I can assure you, that won’t happen. The product’s already been tested at a small scale.” Birky’s words were sincere, and Kirsten felt it herself he was telling the truth, but doubt still lingered in her mind. “A little over 30 women tried the product, and saw results almost instantaneously.

“Amber you need to hide!” I shouted.
“But Master, I-”
“Don’t argue! I need you to get in your bottle right now!” I snapped, holding out the bottle to her. Amber sighed but bowed her head in understanding.
“As you command, Master.” Amber’s body burst into flame and flowed like living water into the bottle. Once she was inside, I plugged it up and placed it on the table. I wasn’t a fool of course; I knew that I couldn’t hide Amber forever from my parents, and I wasn’t going to try. But they might be more willing to believe that Amber is a djinn if they see her rising out of a bottle instead of her standing in the living room talking with me. I sat down at the table, hoping to appear normal and as relaxed as possible.
“Hey Thomas!” My mom called, walking inside and setting her purse down. She was wearing her favorite jacket over a dress. Her hair was tied back and the hard tile floor clacked under he
The Northern Enigma - Part 45Tubar stopped in front of a large three story wooden building. It was almost dark by now and it had started raining. The rain was convenient, because now they had a reason to pull the hoods of their cloaks over their heads. Tubar bounced on the door and waited for a few seconds. It opened and a muscular slave appeared in the door. He looked at the four of them for a moment and stepped aside, leaving room for them to enter. The place was obviously one of the cheap cat-houses of the district. A shabby looking counter with racks full of bottles with cheap beer and liquor behind it, had been constructed near the entrance. A rather fat, middle aged female slave in a dress that revealed more of her bosoms than Falco wanted to see, was sitting behind it. She smiled and stood up when they entered.The Northern Enigma - Part 455 days ago in Introductions & Chapters

W-H Event - IntrudersThe exchange of gathered information and discussing their importance and meaning were highly interesting for some, and very boring for others. Part of the first group was the witch Nera Gullingham, part of the latter group was her familiar Ghost, a black cat with a white skeleton pattern on his fur. He had jumped off Nera's lap and taken residence on a window pace, rolled up and sleeping. The sun shone through the window and warming him in addition to the heater below him. He didn't look out for Nera, the worst thing that could happen to her was being involved in a conversation. A cloud blocked the sunshine and Ghost responded by twitching his ears.W-H Event - Intruders5 days ago in Introductions & Chapters

Cultural Curations: Felyne Rescue SquadIntroduction:Cultural Curations: Felyne Rescue Squad4 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
A large part of the Guild's success is due to the great amount of care they give to their hunters. They try to make sure that every hunter that goes out in their name safely returns home, at the least, alive. This is made possible thanks to the Felyne Rescue Squad, a group of felynes who are trained in first-aid and extraction of hunters who are in peril.
The FRS is a completely voluntary service with good benefits to the felynes that enlists. Though benefits differ depending on the village, most include some sort of health benefit. However, arguably the biggest benefit to being in the FRS is the amount of human connections a felyne can form during this job, particularly with guild personal. If a felyne ever wanted to work for or be involved with the guild, it was almost necessary to be a part of the FRS.
At first, this job was tasked to other specialized hunters that were trained in stealth and distraction to stay out of sight during a

Bliss spent the whole first half hour of the movie just trying to get comfortable. She tried laying on her back, stomach and side, then she tried sitting up with her legs crossed, stretched out and with her knees up but it was no use. Luke’s knee was boney and uncomfortable. She huffed and looked up to Luke who was completely entrance in the movie. He probably hadn’t even felt her moving every 5 seconds. She sighed and her eyes trailed down his chest. She saw his shirt was slightly bunched up where his leg and hip joined.Unforeseen Bliss - Chapter 65 days ago in Introductions & Chapters

Shadow Bonnie blinked and looked up into the smiling face of a puppet, but it wasn't the one he recognized. This one was much different. Physically different. Where did she come from and does Mary know about her?
"W-who are you...?" he stuttered a reply.
"I'm Nightmarionne," the strange puppet cackled, "But you can call me Night if you want. It's shorter and easier to say. That one does."
Nightmarionne pointed her long fingers at Marionette, who was still unaware of the two yet, holding with her golden plushies in her arms.
