The Diner - Part 1Paradise, Texas; Population 451. Located about 65 miles northwest of Dallas, the speck of a town had more churches than people. I first encountered the aptly named villa on my way back to Houston from Oklahoma City, where I’d been stationed for the past week while meeting with a potential new client for work. A wrong turn off of I-35 put me miles off course, and I hadn’t passed anything but cotton fields and cow pastures for what seemed like hours.The Diner - Part 117 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Now, my rented Altima was running on fumes, and I didn’t know if I could make it another ten minutes down the road, much less the hour or more it would take to reach the relative civilization of Dallas. So, with the silver Nissan threatening to die at any moment, I coasted into the gravel-covered parking lot of ‘Pearl’s Diner and Petrol’ to give my trusty steed a much needed drink.
It was mid-July, and the sweltering Texas sun beat down on my already perspiring brow as I popped the

It did make her feel a bit better, to say the least. Especially since things didn't seem to be right.
Soundwave and Bombrush were nowhere in sight. They were supposed to have been back by now... Bombrush had promised her that he would bring Soundwave back before the announcement. She knew that she was a grown woman and could handle herself, but her nerves were so rattled that she just wanted Soundwave to be there as a familiar, friendly face. Not to mention help calm her down.
Now she felt even worse. Bloodshed had tried to calm her nerves after he had her sit in this chair, offering to have a servant bring tea or food for her if she needed it. He had even offered

A soft sigh escaped her slight pouty lips that were painted a dark, blood red by her favorite brand of lipstick. Her dull blue-grey eyes swiftly glanced around the room, her tanned arms crossed.
Her almond-shaped eyes landed on the clock as she sat down on her cream colored couch.
7:18 p.m. He was late. Again.
She cleared her throat and tried to smoothen out the small crinkles in her green dress. The dress ended at her knees and had slits on either sides, both an inch long. There was only one strap that went across her shoulder, and the clothing had small, inticrate designs from under her breasts to the end of the dress. The top half was a lighter, mint green while the rest was darker shades.
She heard a hard knock on the front door. She snapped her head hopefully to it and stood up. She walked over and placed her hand on the golden han

The weeks passed and Flying Dutchman's wound slowly but surely healed. The three masted Dutch fluyt was soon ready to take on her new duties as the farrier of the dead.
Britannia had told her much in that time, explaining to her not just her duties as the ferryman, but also to the British Empire as well.
"Now I know you're Dutch." She said. "And you'll hate this but as my apprentice, you have a duty to protect the Empire as well as I."
Flying Dutchman frowned. "As if I'd ever help those lowly Brits!" She snarled.
Britannia shook her head. "Hatred will be your downfall with that kind of attitude, Dutchman." She said sternly.
Flying Dutchman opened her mouth to retort then closed it again. It wouldn't do to snap at her mentor.
A sigh escaped her and reluctantly, she nodded for the old sailing ship to continue. Britannia nodded her thanks and went on.

Holly and Ashley- IntroductionAfter the Christmas celebration ended most of the Andrews relatives dispersed back to their respective homes except for two. Grandma Andrews stayed at her daughter Mary’s house, something she had been doing since before thanksgiving and would continue to do for the foreseeable future. The other guest that remained was Cousin Holly. The big blubbery teen would be spending the next few weeks at the Wilson’s home while her parents went off to Hawaii to enjoy a long overdue vacation. Even though she was 18, Holly was quite a load to look after as her greedy gut and bulging body were anything but low maintenance. Luckily her Aunt Mary was the kind of person who embraced her maternal instincts and was always happy to have another mouth to feed around the house. Plus Grandma was happy to be around more of her grandchildren.Holly and Ashley- Introduction1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

As perfectly as she fit in his arms it was not quite the same with the soft bump of her stomach. He grinned at the soft purr not from her but from the twins and nuzzled her neck.

“Please don’t, it’s a waste of money,” Andrea told Cyril yet again as he discussed trials and taking Andrea’s attacker to court. Like Gill, she wasn’t really comfortable having Cyril fund something like that for her.
“C’mon, one good lawyer. The longer you wait to take him to court, the harder it will be to make him pay for this!” Cyril countered, Gill folding his arms and shaking his head. They had been at it for at least an hour now and there was no end of it in sight. The way the police had acted, it almost seemed like they would’ve made an arrest if Andrea hadn’t survived—so far, they were treating the whole case as though it were her fault.
“I think we’re dealing with a slightly different problem than just Andrea being attacked. The officers she spoke to all seem to think it was her fault, and they were all male. Could be a coincidence… could be sexism,” Gill mused, both Andrea a

“Sometimes,” Lizzie answered from behind the counter. “But it’s been a while, so we’re grateful for the moisture.”
Moisture, Kit thought, mouthing the word and feeling it on her slightly burnt tongue before she took another sip of tea. In New York the rain would enliven the world and make everything richer, brighter, more vibrant in every aspect. The trees would become items of stark contrast with deep brown bark soaking in the life water and the leaves would dance as the droplets bounced off their brightly green forms. Kit felt more alive when breathing in the refreshing scent of wet dirt and pavement and feeling the drops on her skin and hair. But here, in the desert, with this kind of heavy downpour, the world was grey. Grey drops, grey-brown dirt, brown-grey woo

Saiph continued to look at the food as they entered her room, and she missed Heilyn's obvious glare at Nik as he passed him. "I brought you some strawberry lemonade," he said thickly as he walked inside and handed her the drink that was on the tray he was carrying.
She took the drink with steady hands and immediately took a large gulp, hoping that it would help to cool down her face; she felt like she was on fire. After she swallowed, she looked up and said, "I haven't had one of these in a long time. Thank you."
Heilyn nodded his head once as he set the tray of miscellaneous food items on the table beside her. "We didn't get you any big meals, since I thought it might be a bit hard on your stomach. So try not to overindulge, all right?"
"I won't," she replied as she took another sip of her drink.
Kaci gave a pointed look at Christie, who was still smirking as they set their trays of food down as well, but she ignored it completely. "You seem a lot more chipper since we left." Kaci gla

Not until students stopped breathing around me, as if it was contagious. Not in a rude way though, more like they were actually concerned for there health.
I don't blame them, it's subconscious for them really, to stare at me without seeing eyes as they think of what I've seen. Wondering if they will too, one day. If they too, will become grey.

EXPERIMENTS written sketchThe story Experiments is one I created about how sometimes science does more harm than good in the wrong hands. The setting itself is post future/semi modern- a nuke plant blew up causing five towns to become contaminated. The people who lived there become infected with radiation...but don't die. They instead mutate DNA with various creatures around them by mistake, causing them to become humanoids in a fairly painful manner. This transformation helps them live and adapt. The five small towns heal over time but most of its residents are permanently stuck as humanoids. The story takes place many years after that event, in a valley surrounded by a thick forest and a large canyon drop off.EXPERIMENTS written sketch2 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

If you thought being lost in the desert was bad, try being stuck on a island filled with demons that has soil similar to that of the volcanic ash beaches that were on Iwo Jima. Add some jagged rocks scattered about and a dead tree here and there, and that was the view me and Chris had. We have been stuck here for almost 3 days now. It’s hard to tell when day becomes night here. The only thing I have to go on is my watch, and I think it might be messed up do to the interference here.

The doors to the Academy are shut as I approach them, no one is standing or walking outside, and from within the halls I can hear a commotion of different sounds. I carefully open the doors and walk down the hallways slowly, the sounds of turmoil and confusion growing louder as I approach the cafeteria. I stand in front of the cafeteria double doors and hesitate to enter. On the other side I can hear screaming and yelling in anger and pain. Objects being thrown and crashing into people and walls, and the shouts for them to get under control by a few students, but not enough to pacify the belligerent crowd. It sounds like a bloodbath inside, and sadly I remember that my job as an ambassador is to break up fights. Taking a deep breath I open the doors wide open, only to see exactly as I imaged.
