Three weeks had past since he had been adopted. It had been three weeks of bliss, of no tears or pain. It still felt very unreal to him, like it would be snatched away when he least expected it. He had to share a room with Matthew, he didn’t mind though, it was bigger than his two previous rooms combined. His new family tried their best to make him feel welcome (and he felt great most of the time).
They had taken him to the doctor two weeks prior. He had managed to hide the scars and bruises a week but his mom had seen them when he was changing into his pajamas. She had immediately wanted to know how he had gotten them. He had just avoided her eye contact and shook his head. That hadn’t stopped her from taking him to the doctors the next day.
He wished that his mom didn’t have to be in the room. He didn’t want he
LeafStar's Secret (Volume No. 1) Icy!I yawned, stretching my legs. "Hey, Icy? Kelly?" I squeaked, nudging them til' they woke up. "What?" Kelly yawned, barely opening her eyes. She looked more tired than Icy on Friday nights. Icy jumped up immediately. "Hey, hey, hey! Where are we going today?" Icy asked, jumping up and down. She was always this giddy, even after she was born! "...'Kay..." Kelly moaned, closing her eyes again. "Guess she doesn't wanna come with us, Blake! Let's go! What are we playing today?" Icy purred, heading towards the door. I followed close behind. "Hide n' seek!" I mewed, licking her cheek. "Alright." Icy squealed, racing out the door. I followed her. "You count!" Icy mewled, hopping around me until I finally gave in. "Okay, okay." I purred, closing my eyes. "Go n' hide." I then heard her dash away, into bushes and undergrowth. "1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..10..Ready or not, here I come!" I opened my eyes, and started towards the road. I heard a piercing shriek fill the air. "BLAKE, HELP!"

You told Cari to stay at her current size. Also you left the ideas to her.
“Really? Okay, then I will play the giant monster in the next city. I am bigger than the most buildings there, so this will be fun! And I can grow more later, so you are right, Master. Let us have fun with my current size now.”
Cari flew a while, until she found the next big city and landed right in the center of it. She crushed many vehicles with her landing and since the city was not evacuated, she also hit some persons...
But none of this bothered Cari as she stood before a skyscraper, which was a few meter taller than her.
“Bad skyscraper, you can't be bigger than me!”
Cari pushed the skyscraper a bit and caused it to break and fall down. It turned into debris and nothing inside the former building was okay anymore.
“This is much better. Now to the next one.”
Cari proceeded to take down all skyscrapers, which were bigger than her, until no one stood anym

Mr. Mamon wasn't too happy, but Leopold had made his decision – it felt like he had made it long ago, and was only now seeing the consequences. The old man chortled quietly to himself, a wry smile gracing his lips.
“Good heavens, no. I've never been less certain about something in my long and storied life. But I think that it makes the most sense, and have no fear – I'll return to the gentle sounds of Crimseleno's dusken voice and your brazen showmanship before long.”
Crimseleno had been flying overhead, or trying to – the tension in the air was proving too much yet again, and in between attempting to reassure him with her own laughter and keep airborne, she could not manage both.
One of the constantly-whirling searchlights (which, Leopold had been surprised to learn were actually coloured by the larger boulderfolk, who would serve as a lens for the light lancing into the sky) illuminated her as she managed to f

It wasn't always possible to remember the names that went with them, but they seemed to be friends she'd met, long, long ago.
Occasionally, she would even recall fond memories of adventures and tales told when things seemed as if they couldn't get any worse – and others, it was just enough to know that there had been those who cared.
… But dreams were fluid things, and jumbled together.
They grew distant and washed out, like oil paintings exposed to too much rain and sun.
Yet even still – she'd take the comfort they offered, even if memory faded and time faded.
She only wished to keep dreaming such calming, pleasant dreams.
Grendolf had retreated far, far away from the island, to a place known only to himself a fair few – it would not have been a mistake to classify it his 'sanctuary', though it was one of many such boltholes employed by a wizard so long-lived.
Although any would have been forgiving

"What brings you to us today Mrs. Tutellio?" I smiled at the woman who sat across from me. I knew her reputation around town, she was the local 'bag lady'. A sweet elderwoman, who was rumored to be a bit unhinged. To me though, she just came across as lonely. I allowed her to set the pace of the conversation, fixing her a cup of English style tea as she had requested it. There was a hint of an accent, a touch of brogue in her lilting voice. I sat back down after delivering the China cup filled with the Earl Grey tea.
"Well Mr. Stiltskin, I have a wish. One I've had in my heart for a great many years now. I wish I could open an orphanage of me own. But I'm up in years, even though I've finally the funds to do it up proper, I'd never be allowed to open one. Me husband, the late Mr. Tutellio, may G

It was the kind of storm that didn't get to your skin or bring you down, but spun itself through the balmy evening and kept your soul warm.
Binky didn't like standing guard; he was strong, and he was brave. But he didn't like hurting people, didn't like the thought of it. Even the armour that Ruslana and he had made for him made him feel uncomfortable; and what was he supposed to do if the dragons returned – though neither of them had been seen for some time?
Atop the wall of steel and spikes that represented the slice of civilization that District was – an armoured little remnant of what the travelers had brought with them – Binky stood alone, and thought these things;
Yet they did not frighten him, for a little hope in his mind told him that things would work out, in the end. When he clambered to the top of one of the (Binky-sized) ladders, he could see a figure, motionles
Broken Scar's Fate (Volume No. 10) My FaultI saw a gray-and-white pelt flash by right before my eye. I threw WhiteHeart off of me, then he suddenly disappeared when he hit the ground. "BROKEN SCAR!" ShineSpirit hissed in my face. "WHAT DID YOU DO?" I looked at her, guilt flooding me. She then pulled LeafStar out of the water and felt for a pulse. ShineSpirit gasped. "He's still alive!" She purred. "It'll be okay, my love." She whispered in his ear. "Everything will be fine." My love? Excuse me? What did she just say? My eye widened, as ShineSpirit raced away, as fast as she could go, LeafStar in her grasp. I sighed, slowly following her. I then stopped. My head hung low, my eye watering. "Oh what did I do?..." I wailed, closing my eye. I blinked it open again. "It's not my fault that I'm a killer!" I cried again, racing after ShineSpirit. Everyone hated me now.

You answered the author's question with “mouse”. Also you pressed the button with the “-” on it. The buttons disappeared. But in the same moment something appeared on your wrist. It looked like a watch. It had a large display and a button at the bottom. The display showed a “1” and the button had a “-” on it. Also you realized, that you couldn't pull from your wrist.
You thought about it, when you suddenly heard something. It sounded as if something has fallen down. You went to the room, where the sound came from, and looked into it. Someone was on the ground. The person stood up and looked around. She was a young woman with the age of about 20. She was about 1,7 meter big and had long, gray hair. She wore a too small bra for her big breasts and a short skirt. Bra and skirt were the same color as her hair and showed you her not too slim stature.
However, something was odd. The girl had two huge mouse ears and the

There was no light, nor wind, nor fluffy oddly shaped clouds.
It was like looking into a void, and having looked into a few herself so far –
Not the peaceful, serenely empty kind you could spend a few moments catching your breath in.
More unrefined and unfinished.
A sculpture with all the details chiseled off, or a book with all the pages redacted by an overzealous censor.
She'd pulled herself off of her wheelchair to lay back in the grass, which was still roiling, but Lorelei didn't feel half as concerned as her friends were. If anything...
I guess I feel sad.
For her, at least, it was hard not to. Sure, the Island seemed a bit more dangerous, but it had always been dangerous; this was a different kind of menace, like glassed-over eyes on a tired scrapyard dog.
She felt that the Island deserved better, and that even if it were to vanish, or reconfig

Ruslana kept trying, but her lips just wouldn't hinge rightly; and though she knew that smiling shouldn't feel mechanical, that's precisely what it felt like – like one of the arcade cabinets they had, and that she just couldn't manage no matter how hard she tried.
“Anyone who's listening – anyone at all. Please. Just let me not screw this up. I'll do whatever it takes, I promise..!”
It came out as a plea and a growl, and she was worried that Lorelei might appear at the edges of her vision, intentionally or unintentionally listening in...
But her room was quiet except for the scratchy sound of the weather outside, whatever that was supposed to be called. And all the old pantheon would not answer her, nor would her mind.
Ruslana took a long look around the room; and as for the first time, she realized how small it was. There was no real furniture, why? She'd been living here
