Chapter 13: The Peak
I walked up the mountain, hands becoming warm for the fight ahead. Nerves of fear tried pushing itself forward but I forced it to the back of my mind. I can’t let fear take control of me. This is my chance to overcome my fear, destroy him, and escape. I thought. Kai was on my left and I glanced at him. He nodded and I nodded back. We came to a wall that led to the top. I took the ladders out of my pocket and began placing them, sticking them to the cliffside. Then, I began to climbing and placing, controlling my breathing as we climbed higher and higher. The air around us was getting colder as we got higher. I looked up, blinded by sunlight for a few seconds before putting one hand as a shield for my eyes to see we were nearing the top. It’s just a few more blocks away and it’ll begin. I thought. For a few seconds I knew I lost control, my eyes had changed for just seconds

He barely ever watched the stars anymore.
He rather watched the Moon instead, as it changed its face, waxing and waning and waxing again, shining a different light on Heaven and Earth week by busy week...
… and he watched the Lady Moon as she remained the same, always exactly the same freezing, broken little being, no matter how many weeks, months, years, decades or even centuries passed by. Time that she would never get back. Time, without her, that Heaven would never get back.
Had anyone looked at it, they would have shuddered and turned their gaze away from the cold determination Tish was shining with that night. He had allowed this to go on far longer than he should have. And so he made sure a whole legion of angels was standing ready to stop and hinder Vega, should he decide to leave the solitude of his palace that night. (And what solitude it was! Just him and the reports, and a wide empty circle devoid of clouds, breeze or life around the whole crysta

His hands would be hurting for quite a while, that was for sure. Although he was glad she suggested to both potentially throw the round and save their loved ones. Helmy didn't quite care for that though, the screaming and the potential “punishment” later made that very clear. Fortunately both their abilities worked in unison to let that happen.

While eating “Dinner”, Rubin observed an old wasp named Siegert with suspicious envy as he listened to his child talk about his romantic hobbies with such energy that it was rarely displayed around him. Now unraveled as Jorge who was normally shy often quite, shared subjects typically reserved for privet and intimate conversations.
Siegert’s appearance was rather misleading, as one would confuse him as a child in the body of the old. He was also a figure that had a simile that was more foreign than a tractor upon a cloud. That he became too outgoing for Rubin’s own comfort.
Though Rubin’s attempts at concealing his distrust fractured when Siegert had brought along his own bundle of colored paper. When he had said the name of ritual with such swiftness and grace that it slid pass Rubin’s mind with such speed that he caught himself cursing to remember what Siegert had said.

Dealing with the first ever captured Giant is something that Sheriff August couldn’t really tell how well he was doing at. There’s no way to grade something like that, and he was sure if there was, then he could call up the people who had gone through the experience and they could help him now. But so far, with a huge, 90 foot tall girl kept contained in the warehouse at the abandoned Industrial park, sedated heavily but still fed, he felt like he and his team were doing pretty well with the situation.
It had been a few days since the Rangers had found the Giant in the catacombs she was occupying and taken her down with several hundred tranquilizer darts. They moved her from there to the abandoned Industrial park where they could contain her inside one of the older warehouses while also keeping her fed and secured. They mostly gave her preserved pig carcassas they had purchased off of a farmer in the North, and even though she consumed at least one a day, it was still very

I’ve lost my bearings, let my mind wander too far: I need to see, just for a bit, to reorient myself before I find it and then I can retreat from the tunnels.
I’ve hidden it all here, tucked away in the darkness, as if the darkness could smother it. I swore I left that life behind, but can you truly leave such a thing behind? When times are tough, it is an easy habit to fall back on.
It has been three years since the tensions first began to rise within the Offices. Sine then, the Arcanologists and Mystics have become a suspicious breed. But, I guess there has always been a bit of that amongst the Offices, course none of that mattered so long as we fulfilled our part – made ourselves useful.

Brendan’s sword clashes with Peter’s again. He steps back and lunges toward his older brother, only for the attack to be blocked. Peter quickly grabs Brendan’s wrist forcing him to drop his sword to the ground, he turns his brother around forcing his arm behind his back and putting the sword blade against his younger brother’s throat.
“Heh, is that all you got?”
No answer. Peter frowns and pulls the blade away from his brother’s throat and lets him go. Free, Brendan rubs his wrist where his brother grabbed him.
“You didn’t have to grab my wrist that hard, did you?”
“Yes. If you were in a real fight your attacker wouldn’t care how hard they grabbed your wrist. You’d be dead now. You’re weak.”

Best Friend For Hire, Entry 197 Training with Alma seemed extra painful over the past week, and I could only guess she was still upset about my date ― if it could really be called that ― with Portentia. However, she was surprisingly complimentary several times. I was learning. I feared that failing would lead to my untimely demise with how Alma instructed, but I knew a great many more spells and could more easily cast them while fighting now, not that I had any hope of utilizing a spell against Alma. On several occasions, she had ripped the energy out of my control just before I managed to finish forming my spells. I got the impression that she was grossly dissatisfied with my attempts on those particular occasions. She hadn’t scolded me, but there was something in her stance that always told me. I was, in a way, getting closer to her, though this past week seemed to be a setback.

Why do they look so grey…?
Walking alone in this desolated grey field, the sound of my bare footsteps squelching on the wet, warm, ground...Wait...Why is it warm? Looking down, crimson liquid pooled around me, its color stark amongst the grey ground. Blood? But who's...?
My head snap up at the sound of my name and a boy, a year older than me, stood not too far away. His black long-sleeved shirt with its sleeves reaching just above his fingertips and his white cargo pants fitted perfectly against the grey background. His hair, dark and messy, was neck-length and his bangs were long and swept to the left covering his eye. His complexion was pale and porcelain, beautiful yet otherworldly, and his one visible eye with its slit pupil was silver. It's color like grey but lighter than this dull

“We have a job,” she heard a lady respond. The lady talked with a thick Russian accent.

They treat us Germans as though we are animals. Even though many of us did almost nothing wrong during the war.
I think I suffered enough shooting myself with Burgdorf outside the Fuhrer's bunker.
The Mousians, a race of genetically engineered mice, tortured me daily. Some of it was physical. Some psychological. The worst was when they attempted to remove my entrails with no anesthesia. Sure, I screamed. But, I lived.
The psychological was when they tied me to a chair, and made me watch people make mockeries of myself and my comrades in these so-called parodies. Sure, some of them were funny, and now that I think of it, it does sound like I had said the word "fish", and yeah, I was good at pointing at maps.

I leapt from my bed, drenched in cold sweat, heart still thudding against my ribs. I spun in a blind panic, senselessly floundering under the covers until I came to terms with my surroundings.
I was back in my room. The curtains drawn closed to keep the morning light out, a cup of water set on my dresser, and a fresh set of clothes laid out to start the day. I was unsure of how I had gotten there. The last thing I remembered was the people in the woods and having been captured by them. I didn’t recall having been taken back to the inn nor put in my pajamas for that matter. Yet here I was safe and sound. For a short moment I considered that this was in fact some sort of magic trick and that I was only imagining that I was in my room, but I could hear the cook yelling from below. There was no way that his loud bellowing could be replicated in such a perfect fashion.
Pleasantly confused I dressed myself and wandered down stairs thinking that someone would have an expl
The Dream WaltzSlowly, the soft music emerged through the silence and echoed through the colossal halls. The darkness began to fade into a more comprehensible picture. The walls that surrounded her were all of marble, embroidered with gold. Strange, not completely human figures emerged out of the marble. She could notice wings, hooves, sharp teeth, long ears. Some were intertwined in their lover’s embrace. Some were reaching towards the other side of the room in order to be reunited with the flame of their hearts. Yet none of them stirred in arousal nor moved to get closer to each other, they were merely statues. Nonetheless, Tara could see there was emotion in their eyes – yearning, longing, lust. It was if someone has put a spell on those magnificent giants and some had the luck of staying in an embrace for eternity, while others were not as lucky.The Dream Waltz7 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
