The little ones shrieked all the way down, laughing as they rolled aside, straw stuck in their hair like golden porcupine quills. Lolly, a girl of 13 with strawberry-blonde hair and amber eyes, a white dress draping just past her knees, sat on the edge of the loft, her bare feet swinging back and forth as sh daydreamed to herself, rubbing her rosy cheeks.
"I say, child," the young girl said distantly to the little girl who sat beside her. "I can't wait until we get to the City. Imma buy me some pre'y pearlies and I'll buy you a cutie li'l dress all up with ribbons! Red! Pre'y red dress just for you."
The little one was small with chubby cheeks and a mess of unruly curly brown hair. She tried swinging her legs in time w

.........Nothing existed. Only darkness.
I was jerked out from the sleeping and sat on the bet. I was still breathing fast and shallow. My heart was beating like a church bell. I put my hand on it. I tried to keep calm but could not. Hands and my whole body were shaking. From my eyes gasped tears again. My heartbeating slowly soothed, but my hands were still shaking, I didn´t know why I was shaking. Was it from fear or memories? Wound was still hearted. It didn´t healed over the years. I felt this wound have made yesterday. I looked right on my night stand. 6 o ´clock. I rolled my eyes. It was only six hours morning but I was emotional exhausted. This dream was so strong for me. Tears streamed down on my face. I heard how my fiancé was quietly blowing. His five days stubble needed cut. I wanted to lay again and sleep, but I couldn´t do it. My pain wouldn´t want to stop. I clung knees to my chest and hugged. I wanted to end it and

Date: 1,200,000 BC
Location: Middle East
Homo ergaster’s understanding of the environment within which it has evolved, its ability to plan, to think ahead, to manage the complexity of its social relationships, and the strength of the society that has developed to support it, have all made it the most successful Great Ape so far to have walked Earth. And it has also been given the confidence to reach out further from its African origins. Homo ergaster has the ability to move into another, unfamiliar landscape, and to read the signs that will enable it to survive there, and this ability means that it has come to almost dominate the world, like no other Primate species before it.
Although Homo ergaster first appeared around 1.8 million BC, originating in eastern Africa, within less than 200,000 years its descendants had begun to migrate into the Middle East and onto the edge of Europe and to Asia. The new Human species th

Chitama Forest. A place known for its natural beauty. It was smack dab in the center of the island of Izayoi and was well-known for being the bridge to all sorts of places on the island- Tomo Lake, the Tsunagu River, the many caverns and woods about, the list would go on and on. Being near and dear to the town, one would expect this forest to be rather ordinary... but alas, that wasn't the case.
Out near the middle of the forest and where the marsh met the oceans nearby, there stood a gigantic stone ensnared by roots. At first sight, it was just a useless moss-covered stone. But to the islanders around, this was called the island “utaki” or island “place of spiritual belief”- which meant the islanders would come to wish and pray for well being in the hopes that spirits above would listen. This gave it the official dub of the Spiritual Stone. It was a monolith that exuded energy unlike anything seen. It was a source to many of

Location: Southeastern Asia
It is the middle of the day, but a shadow hangs over the face of a male Creature that is treading carefully through the dense undergrowth. Above him are the thick green leaves of a subtropical forest canopy with the light of the sun only fleetingly forcing its way through to the ground. Around him are the tall stems of a tough flexible wood, which makes progress through this jungle slow and painful. He is surrounded by Bamboo. This is a world very different from that of the previous Homo ergaster from Africa, but this Human is in his familiar element. At first glance his is indistinguishable from Homo ergaster, but his species’ face is thicker set, measures about 5 feet and 10 inches tall (shorter than Homo ergaster) and in one crucial respect he is different: he has a paler skin, probably reflecting his life in the monsoon climate of southeastern Asia.

"The last I saw them, they were near the woods." He frantically explained.
"Why didn't you go after them."
"I would get sliced to shreds. Besides, that forest is the gigantic. You might even have trouble finding them." He quickly panicked after saying that last sentence. I looked at him, then at the forest. "Fair enough. We'll have to let Rose face me on her own terms, but let's see if we can speed up the process. SET FIRE TO THE FOREST!"
"Sir, it's only me."
"Where is everyone else?"
"They fled back to your kingdom."
"No matter." I planted a row of plant seeds on the ground. Soon, piranha plants emerge. I point at the forest, as a result, they all shot fireballs at the trees. In know time, a forest fire

"Change in the Weather"
As Ron and Kim made their way towards the water fountains, Kim was very nervously in terms of ruining her dress and makeup. She knew that this was their big night after all, but at the same time, she needed to remind Ron that there were certain aspects that needed to be addressed. Kim was eager to get wet, but this was not the time to do so.
"Hey, Ron," she asked politely, stopping him in its tracks. "I know you want to get wet, but I don't think that it is a good idea."
Ron was surprised at this confession. From the way he looked at it, he thought that Kim would enjoy getting wet. Clearly that wasn't the case, but before he could say anything, the sight of people rushing over to a part of the festival backed up Kim's claim.
"Wonder what is happening," replied Ron. "Guess we'd better find out what is going on."
They came over and all of a sudden, the flashing lights of fireworks were shown and Ron's intentions of getting him and his date wet were evap
Mobile Fighter G-Pony Episode 10"Zippy zippy zippy," Pinkie said as she spun the Shining Pony around, trying to keep her opponent in view, lest they deliver some crippling attack to her suit. "Just what you'd expect from the Derbyshire colony." Her opponent, the pony suit of Derbyshire colony, the Derby Pony, continued it's speedy tactics. It was a slight thing, streamlined and aerodynamic to get the least resistance from the air. The earth pony design showing thrusters built into the frame of the suit completely devoid of any protective armor save for the standard chest armor meant to protect the pilot. The suit's mane and tail trailing behind it like a blur as it circled.Mobile Fighter G-Pony Episode 1016 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"But not fast enough. RD's suit was much faster, and could fly. Pinkie Cannon Mk. II!" The cannon unfurled from the Shining Pony's side and fired, hitting the ground well away from the Derby. A laugh echoed from the enemy suit at the attack, until the Derby ran right into the hole formed by the cannon blast and went skidding to the ground.

A white, tall wolf sits peacefully by the edge of a shallow pool, his glossy fur waving silently in the gentle breeze. Suddenly a branch snapped, and the pale wolf's ears prick up...he senses someone close by. He sticks his snout into the air, trying to identify the scent of whoever may near by.
“Nightfang, you can come out,” the wolf says to the berry bush behind him. The bushes rustle and a small, black wolf with piercing green eyes emerges. The new wolf silently trots up to the white wolf and sits next to him at the edge of the pool.
“Tell me,” the white wolf asks, “Do you have any news of the pack?” The black wolf looks up at t

The next evening Shiloh brings some chocolate with him.
It’s shaped like little mice and it comes in a bag that’s far too big for him to eat alone. Ray’s eyes are on it the second he pops up, and he swims over to the dock with a curious expression on his face.
“What’s that?” He asks, pointing at it.
“A little treat”, says Shiloh. “For us”.
He pulls open the bag and takes out one of the mice. Then he carefully hands it to Ray, who stares at it and turns it over in his wet hand. He doesn’t know what to make of it.
“Eat it”, Shiloh tells him. “It’s nice”.
He sits down and pulls off his shoes, dangling his toes in the water as he bites into one of the mice himself. Ray follows suit and his eyes widen, a large smile crossing his face.
“It’s delicious!” He exclaims. “Can I have more?!”
Shiloh puts down the bag and smiles.
“Help yourself”, he replies.

I threw a quick glance back at Harumi - She seemed equally as grossed out as she was impressed, poor girl.
"Doubt you'll see Main House scum use that move, not too many of them have a talent for dual wielding."
"But what am I supposed to do... against their Dual Natures?!" She shouted back between attacks,
As she fired senbon into an enemy I scoffed a little bit, never really saw anything special about having a second nature.
"The same thing you do for anyone else, you don't have to be an Asukai to have two Chakra Natures..."
I was going to add another sarcastic remark, but I noticed a large number of Masked Men begin pouring in.

When we last left off, poor Bashful was crying his tiny heart out, and Doc was able to comfort him. The two almost kissed, interrupted by one of Sneezy's sneezes. Anyways, let's get on with today's chapter, in third person PoV!~
Doc and Bashful were startled by Sneezy's sneeze, and broke apart quickly, both blushing at what almost happened. As Sneezy reached the bedroom he and his friends shared, he spotted the two. "Hey guys, just came up to see how Bashful was doing." Sneezy walked over, noticing them blushing a bit. "You guys okay? You're cheeks are a bit pink.." Doc was the one who replied. "We're fine, don't worry. Bashful seems calm now, though~" He motioned over to Bashful, who was still sitting up, wiping his eyes. "Bashful~ You're feeling a bit better~" Sneezy hugged the tiny dwarf, happy to see he wasn't crying anymore.
