Evric had zipped his jacket almost all the way up, leaving a small gap so that he could hold Ellie against his chest, the flaps of the jacket and his hand covering her from the drenching rain.
Ellie’s heart was pounding in rhythm with Evric’s gargantuan footsteps, yet she felt safe and warm in his grasp for once. Yes, the wind was still tossing her reddish-brown hair into her face, but every other part of her was covered.
Tired of having to squint, Ellie faced the wall of warm blue shirt fabric. She let her knuckles go white as they grabbed at it, and then she burrowed hard against what she briefly forgot was Evric. That was, until she felt his larger-than-life heart softly pummeling against her, shaking her to the core but also calming her.
His fingers curled firmly but tenderly around her, allowing her to relax without the worry that she might fall. She was comfortably curled up, leaning against the taren’s warm body, but at the same time she was anxious.

Previously: '"Alright,it's a date then!" Francis smiled before waving goodbye. "See you then!" (M/N) stood there,mouth agape.
"I-IT'S NOT A DATE!" But the happy Frenchman had already ohonhon-ed his way back to his car.
Francis drummed his fingers on the table, anticipating (M/N)'s arrival. Oh (M/N)...the sweet, new assistant. He's the luckiest person ever to have such a cute little assistant! And if he's still stressed out, they can go to his place and get rid of some stress...ohon~
Francis knows that (M/N) doesn't think of this as a date, and neither does he honestly. It's just lunch. He just liked the reaction that he knew he'd get from the (H/C) haired man. Even if this isn't a date, Francis is determined to get (M/N) to love him...or at least like him!
The door of the diner opened with a ring and Francis looked up hopefully. Nope. It was just a different person. His hopes were shrinking after waiting for so long. Maybe he de

Last week was a good week. My mom and I went to the market to buy a few things and it was over all a fun trip. I liked it. Who wouldn't, though? Sifting through random stuff that doesn't belong to you, silently judging others based on what they bought and are undoubtably going to throw away later. It's great, really.
But this week... Mom was too happy, too excited. Hell, she was always excited, but this morning she flew into my room, not literally, at least, but she pulled me out of bed with the biggest smile on her face. I thought we had won a million dollars or something. Ooooh how I wish it had been a million dollars. Maybe just a hundred...not sure why she'd be excited about a hundred, but hey.
"Get dressed, pack a bag," she yelled, releasing me to pull out a floral backpack and an ugly black suitcase from the depths of my closet. I barely had time to wet my lips, readying myself to ask a questio

"Do you love Mikey too?"
Nathan watched as a flicker of guilt crossed Ethan’s face. All around them the lair was quite. Everyone was asleep, everyone but them. They couldn't sleep; they were too nervous. Tomorrow was the day, tomorrow was the day Donatello and his mate leatherhead would perform the surgery that would separate them forever. After several more moments of silence Nathan watched as his brother swallowed nervously before nodding slowly. "Y.....yes."
Nathan watched as Ethan's body language changed. His shoulders slumping forward, his eyes dropping to loot at the floor, as he hung his head sadly. "I'm.......I'm sorry.....I just.........I........"
Slowly Nathan looked up at him, small tears forming in the corners of his eyes. "He’s just........he's so nice to us. He always is so kind of us......and he.......he's attractive and.......I’m sorry."
Nathan bit his lip. He hated seeing Ethan like this. Hated seeing his literal other half and older brother sad. Shif

But Ilya was curious to a fault, often to the point where finding out about something took precedence over fear or common sense.
A winged ball of blue light flitted from flower to lovely flower, drinking in the scents and giving them a little bit of her magic. She had to say that Bergen's royal gardens were almost as pretty as the ones she knew back home.
It was boing with Meg gone. The Kaufners were gone on a year-long voyage around the country. Sometimes, Gabriel got short messages or drawings from her with leaves or flowers pressed for him. But while she was off exploring exciting new places, he was stuck in Bergen doing tutoring.
It was a hot afternoon, but the ten year old loved nature far

Princess Anna followed the peculiar sounds down the stairs. "Hello?", she wondered. "Olaf? Sven?" She lit a candle as a figure was illuminated in front of her. The princess gasped before dropping her candle, sending it crashing to the ground.
"This way!", urged the Arendelle captain as his soldiers joined in. "The sound came from over here!" The men's boots stomped across the hall as one of the doors swung open. They watched as Vita barged through, holding Princess Anna hostage with a flintlock pistol. The soldiers drew their swords and stood ready.
"Back up!", barked Vita as she twisted the gun's nozzle against the side of Anna's head. "Now!" Anna winced at the pressure. "I'll shoot her. You know I will! Back! NOW!"
The men looked at each other, slowly backing up as Vita made her way down the adjacent hall. "Elsa!", hopelessly cried Anna. She then elbowed her attacker in the chest and threw a punch.

Trying to avoid a crowd in Glenmore was like trying to avoid a swarm of biting midges. They buzzed around, all talking at once, getting up his nose and giving him a headache. Herbalists were the worst of the lot, arguing about the best salve for the job. Drustan would much rather have some peace and quiet; slamming his antlers at full speed into another stag’s tended to leave him with a splitting headache. The fresh gouge across the front of his chest and shoulder stung, but it would hardly kill him. Fighting Lord Rafe in front of the entire herd had not been one of his more intelligent actions as King, but he could admit now that the testosterone and adrenaline was fading that he hadn’t exactly been using his brain.
Spotting his salvation in the form of a nervous princess doe, Drustan wrangled his way through the concerned mob and stood beside her. “Thank you, all, for your concern, however your services will not be required.” He addressed the cr

"Three times this week alone. Three times, Gabriel Akil!"
She scolded. Though her son stood taller than she, no one messed with the queen unless they wished for a verbal lashing.
"Actually four, if you count the barber's shop window."
Gabriel assumed a semi-reverent posture at the foot of the staircase. Sometimes, he could get his mother to crack a smile when she was supposedly mad at him. But today didn't seem like one of those days. He eyed the empty throne to his mother's left with relief. His dad rarely raised his voice as much as Pen, but even still... Gabriel had begun to feel a little awkward around his dad lately.

"Please, I don't know anything!" the tiny creature exclaimed, as James brought her little figure towards his face.
James snorted, and shook his head in disbelief. "You're as sly as an octopus- But that kind of bull shit doesn't work on me,"
The girl's dark eyebrows furrowed, and a flash of what seemed like anger darkened her features.
"Will you at least give me a chance to explain myself? Do you think I WANT to be here?" her little voice rang in James's ears, causing the pirate to feel a slight twitch in his eye.
He blinked in surprise, gazing down at his prize with weary eyes. He frowned, and began to lower the girl onto a side table. She stumbled out of his hands, landing in a pile of crumpled parchment and puddles of ink.
"Ooof!" the creature moaned in disgust as the black liquid soaked her red clothing, her tan feet and hands were now jet black.

Vengeance: Chapter 4The cheerful bell of the convenience store chimed as Sam pushed open the door, exiting with a six pack of beer rattling in his hand. He started to pull out the keys for the Impala, looking like just some local guy on a booze run. No one paid him a second glance or gave him suspicious glares. They had no idea how every turn in his life had only led him down stranger and darker paths.Vengeance: Chapter 44 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The glare of flashing red and blue lights pulled his attention to the left. Two squad cars and an ambulance were stationed around the corner. With dread pooling in his stomach, he shifted his grip on the beer and made his way over to the side of the pawn shop neighboring the convenience store. Patrolmen were stationed by the yellow tape, insisting that curious onlookers remain at a safe distance. Sam complied, but managed to catch a glimpse of the body being hauled onto a stretcher. A four inch hole was carved into the woman's chest. She looked to be about mid-thirties, clad in mismatched clothing.

"Woaahh!" He yelled, "I'm awake!" You snapped, you let him up and rubbed your hand across the back of your neck.
"Neck stiff?" Dark asked flatly, "My whole body is stiff." You replied, "Well get up, your breakfast is getting cold." He stated.
You sat by the fire and ate, you had so many questions running through your mind, who Daigon was, what did he want with Dark, and why did he retreat? Dark isn't one to retreat, unless the battle would be completely hopeless, he would never retreat.
"Who was that guy anyway?" You asked, Dark looked up from his meal, "What guy?" He asked, "The big guy." You stated, "Oh, Daigon?" He asked.

Damien's Time - Visit by Michael It had not been long since Jehovah had left the Earth, when Lucifer received yet another visit from one who had turned against him. This visit was even more unexpected than the one from Jehovah had been. There had been just enough time for everything to start and calm down from the previous visit. Lucifer had taken Lilith to his home, or what was now to be their home, when the new visitor walked in the door completely unannounced. Lucifer stopped and gasped as the the visitor entered. Lilith did not know who this visitor was, but took her cue from the reaction of Lucifer, and was immediately on guard herself. It was Michael, the one who had betrayed Lucifer and cost him the battle for the Earth.Damien's Time - Visit by Michael5 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

As Jacques entered the old train station, he could hear the tinkling twang of a classical guitar playing softly from the massive vintage stereo speakers he had brought from his apartment in Montreal a few weeks earlier. He hung up his coat and was startled to find Tanita sprawled on the floor of the main hall, hidden by the big sofa they'd recently bought at a local thrift shop. She'd dragged the old gym mat in front of the antique cast iron stove, and adjusted the air vent to obtain the maximum amount of heat. She lay on her side, her upper torso flat on the mat and her hair spread all around her head like a walnut crest as she stared at the rafters above her.
“Harmonium,” he said aloud.
“Hmm?” she replied, suddenly realizing he was there.
“This song. It's a classic.”
She rolled upright. “Anik chose this CD,” she said defensively. “I like it,” she admitted timidly.
“It's their eponymous CD,” he said, smiling.

A sharp gasp followed by a low moan came from underneath white stained sheets, tucked behind stainless-steel railing at the foot and left side.
Dark blue ears flattened with tire before darting forward at the sound of footsteps outside his dorm.
A low growl emitted from his sore and dry throat before muting itself as the same footsteps hurried away.
Sonic.exe emerged from the sheets, the over-sized long sleeve white vest, draped way over his hands as he used the back of his right hand to rub his eyes profusely. ‘Goddamn.’ He inwardly gasped as pain shot up his spine, ‘they must’ve put more needles in the beds last night.’ He mused as he looked down at the rotting mattress beyond the rusty stains on the once pristine white linin, as he noted the needles sticking out, one of which had drawn blood from his back during the night’s sleep.

Three Best Friends PART 1Isabel Jimenez grew up in Hawaii with her family. When she was ten years old, they sent her to school in Los Angeles, thinking she would be able to learn more there. In that school she was alone, nervous and scared. That was until she met a girl from one of the older classes named Raven Gomez. Even though she was loud and brash with everyone else, Raven was always nice to Isabel and Isabel saw her as a big sister. They were together through high school until Raven left for college. After high school, she received a scholarship to NYU which was an opportunity that she couldn't pass up. So after some tearful goodbyes she left to New York where she met Sally Sparrow. They were roommates and soon became great friends. They exchanged stories about where they came from which helped a currently aimless Isabel to discover what she wanted was to be a marine biologist!

“It was nothing.” Blaine said, “I’ll be ready for the next one whenever.”
“For now, you should heal. Undine shall see to your wounds.” Beyond replied as the New Ancient of water approached. With a faintly blue glowing palm she began to heal the magical being. Blaine sighed in relief as she felt her damages fade away. When she was fully healed, Undine moved on to Pana.
