Alice In The Ring"But why!?" A voice whined through the house. "Because Alice, rugby is a boy's sport, not a girl's sport." Her mother replied. "Besides, you might get hurt" She continued, this time with concern. "But mum!" Alice whined "No buts, now get ready for school, you might miss the bus." Alice groaned and stormed off up to her room and backed her bag for school. Clad in a plain blue t-shirt and long navy blue pants, Alice made her way back down the stairs with both her short, brown hair and black backpack bouncing up and down nearly in sync. "See ya, mum" Alice deadpanned. "Bye, darling" Alice's mother replied as Alice walked out the door.Alice In The Ring5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
As Alice made her way to the bus stop, a voiced called from further down the street. "Oh, hey Alice." The voice belonged to Alice's friend, Jack, a tall boy with scruffy, dark blonde hair. "Hi Jack" Alice replied with a sigh and dropped her bag on the footpath. "Something wrong?" Jack asked with worry. Alice sighed "No, Jack, I'm fine" "Don't lie, Alice, wha

Winter, 1 TA
"Watch out below!"
The shout lifted the heads of the Elves, and they scrambled for cover as a heap of snow slid down from above, just narrowly missing a few of them.
Anárië wiped her forehead and looked up, screening her face from the pure whiteness, but she couldn’t really make out much from the top, only that the voice had sounded remarkably like Erestor. And she actually wouldn’t put it past him to be right where he shouldn’t be to begin with.
Someone touched her arm, and she turned to see Berien, standing in the relative safety of one of the archways.
"I’ve brought some warm tea; you could use it, I think."
Gratefully, her friend placed her shovel against the pillar and stepped into shelter to take the offered cup; all around her, the others of her team were doing the same.
Berien watched her with worry on her face: "You work too much, Anná."
Anárië shook her
Little AngelA few months later, just shy of Sergei’s birthday, the family welcomed their eighth child: wide eyed little Mariya.Little Angel8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Dmitri, Tori, the twins, Yekaterina and little Nicolai crowded around their mother as she nursed the baby girl in her bed and instantly Sergei knew something about this one was special.
She didn’t cry. She didn’t fuss and her cobalt eyes already betrayed a depth in her fragile little head that spoke of a thousand year old soul.
This tiny baby awakened in Sergei the belief that there could be good in world. Her petite, infant frame radiated a purity, a forgiveness that made Sergei feel like a better person just for being in her presence.
He just prayed that this Little Angel wouldn’t come to know the hurt and terror that the rest of her brother’s and sister’s had grown accustomed.
Just by being born into their bloodline Mariya was already too good for the life that lay ahead.

Stefania sat on the edge of the desk, her long right leg braced against a chair as she pulled her boot back on. She stared daggers at Daley, who sat on the floor nearby nursing a bruised jaw. He mumbled somewhat awkwardly around the injury. “Got a kick like a damned mountain hare.”
Rich Grier laughed amusedly from his position leaning against the doorframe. “Are you surprised? You’ve seen those legs.” As he spoke, his gaze remained on the place to which the hemline of Stefania’s dress had risen during the boot replacement. A couple of the other men lingered in the doorway, palpably intrigued by the goings-on. They chuckled along with their chief.
Stefania turned her daggers on Rich briefly. Last thing I need at this stage. Out cold on the floor, like a weak and helpless little girl. And the job’s still waiting to be done. Think these goons are going
Arena Chapter 3~~Fight~~Arena Chapter 35 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Fights had lost appeal to most of the locals, despite that fact the seats still filled up at the beginning of each fight. As the fights went on people would go home, either bored of the arena or had seen their fight and not interested in the rest. Warden of the Arena was obviously trying to get the popularity of the Arena back up but no one was interested from local towns. The king himself even stopped visiting the fights, however his son still attended with the general. The arena was something all little boys loved to watch as they grey up, mocking the fights with wooden sticks as swords and broken wood work as shields. Isabella grew up as one of those children, one of the boys she swung a wooden sword and declared herself a victor as she chased the boys away. Now she watched as the boys near her in the front row pretended to be those fighters in the arena, swinging small sticks and jabbing at each other. Parents around them would tell them to be careful whenever a stick fle

“I know I shouldn't be asking you for anything...” he breathed. “Not after all I've done.. But please... I could really use some help... I don't know what to do anymore, I feel so stuck. I-.”
The red-head let out a low groan as he heard a knock on the door, and reached up to drag a hand down his face. It was obvious the gods wanted nothing to do with him.
“Yes?” he called as he pushed himself to his feet, and started toward the door as it opened. One of his knights stuck his head in.
“I'm sorry to bother you, sire.” The male frowned. “But King Argon and King Vladymir are here. They've brought a prisoner.”
“A prisoner?” Fitz frowned, a

However, there was one particular person who didn’t really wanted to do anything at all for Christmas. She was far too busy studying into a lot of books. Magic books particular. She had far too much on her mind and heart to start celebrating.
Her roommate, Tulia frowned as she watched Christmas buried herself in her studies as they sat in their apartment. She had been doing so ever since Lupin’s funeral. It was clear that she still felt responsible for that wolf’s death.
Tulia shifted her eyes from left to right, trying to find something to say. “So, Christmas, your birthday is in a couple of days.”
“Mm-hmm.” Christmas said without looking up from the book she was reading.
“What do you want?” Tulia asked.

Isabella steered the mule down the hill, it was almost mid day and the town before her was filled with buying customers, happy children and set up markets. Money from the barracks sat in a pouch, jingling muffled from where it was kept safe in her satchel bag over her shoulder. The list for the next order was bigger this time around but Isabella knew she would still be the one to deliver, that meant another conversation with Michael on why another month had passed her without a single courtship with a man. Each time the conversation was brought up Isabella would lie and say no one had offered, truth be told one man had plenty of times but that man was someone Isabella wanted to stay clear of. On a sigh Isabella lead the mule to the first stop, the farmers always set up at the bottom of the hill, servants from the castle could easily get to them and leave without fuss, best produce was sold to the castle while the second best was traded.

Wind blew through trees softly rustling the new spring leaves carrying with it the scent of new buds and refreshed nature. The wind blew along the streets while townsfolk started to walk along the pebble ground, new spring dresses swayed with the wind around soft pale legs and hair struggled to sit behind pins and ribbons. Soft Spring winds had yet to arrive in the capital of Milshar but once they did the folk would be smiling brighter as they let their hair down. Children ran between horse legs and jumped over crates while playing 'fighter'. Running past store fronts as they opened for business to allow the waiting, paying customers to enter their establishments. One business opened their gate wide and hooked it to the wall so the wind would not pull the gate closed. The dark smoked wooden walls slowly came to life as the bellows were worked by the blacksmith's daughter, Isabella brightened the shop with each puff. Embers glowing brighter and spitting sparks i
