The heat had died down a bit but it was still humid.CHAPTER THREE - An Almost Pegasus (part three)19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
"She's so hopeless," Rush sighed heavily when the mare looked at them and pinned her ears flat against her neck.
"Do you blame her?" Joachim defended, glancing at him before leaning on the fence and watching her flare her nostrils. Rush said nothing, coming to stand next to him and crossing his arms.
"I want to help her," Joachim finally decided, straightening out after having a good five minute staring contest with the angry mare. Her muscles were bunched and she was ready to charge at the slightest move that didn't suit her. Rush still didn't reply, not taking his eyes off of her. Joachim approached the gate, took the halter off the peg, and unlatched it. Spook snorted, pawing at the ground and swishing her tail.
"Careful," Rush finally said. Joachim didn't reply, edging i
Mirror People Part 1There once was a boy who didn’t know what he looked like. He saw his clothes, but had never seen his full body. He didn’t know the shape of his face or the color of his eyes. He didn’t know why he needed braces because he had never seen his teeth. When he was little, he would ask his family what he looked like. They thought he was being funny, since they saw him look in the mirrors around the house. But, every time he looked in the mirror, he saw someone else. A girl. He was confused for so long. Was he a boy? Or a girl?Mirror People Part 120 minutes ago in Short Stories More Like This
The girl always looked frustrated, like she had the same problem. This hadn’t occurred to the boy. She was the one messing up his life. She would yell at him, but he could never hear her and his family took no notice to the strange happenings in the mirrors.
As the boy got older, he started to get over it. Sure, he was frustrated that in every reflection she was there instead of him, but he didn’t care as much anymore.
Where's the Pearl?Way back when there was a clam that was like any other clam that a person can find on the shore. Clam was very shy, timid, and very wealthy, but although he was very wealthy he was also charitable to all the creatures down deep or up high. Almost the sea creatures adored clam for his kind soul, even the king of them all, blue whale never had ill thoughts toward clam. Anchovy, sardine, hermit crab, and barnacle though scowled and spit at clam’s name with curses and obscenity always saying “That damn accursed clam what I would do to make him cry.”.Where's the Pearl?12 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Everyone knew clam’s weakness, and that weakness was his superb rosy pink pearl that he had honed for eons himself. No one had ever seen the beauty that was his pearl, but neither did they seek to see it fully knowing that it was his treasure for in that time every clam had a beautiful pearl stowed away. Sea flounder was the blabber of the sea always blowing bubbles with words in them to all kinds of company of the deep
Spring TrainingThe icicles were dripping as they hung from the trees. It was warm out for winter, just enough to remind everyone that spring was on the way. Ikean sat in a warm patch of sunlight to groom and flinched as a drop fell from a melting icicle, landing squarely between her shoulder blades. The clouded leopard let out a grumpy growl and shifted away from the dripping.Spring Training19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Ikean glanced up at the young serval. She didn't recognize him, and concluded that he must be one of the newcomers. The leopard gave him a short nod.
"Good morning." she stretched. "Can I help you with something?"
"No, I'm just bored. I was hoping that when I became a Bounty Hunter Apprentice I would get to go out and patrol for Empire

His clothes were worn and were often the hand-me-downs of another family, but some of it was nice and the invitation said to dress nice. A shirt with a top hat, nice, clean, and fancy. That was when he knew he needed a gift. Having little choice, but wanting to make someone else happy, he looked through his own toys.
There weren't a lot of them, but he found one he thought would work. A purple rabbit he had won at the Easter day at the park. The boy wrapped the gift in the garden section of the newspaper which almost looked like real wrapping paper. Some of the Grandmother's yarn was used to make a bow on the present.
The gift was now done and he grabbed his mask when he heard a honk. He dashe

The CoveSparks of fire light danced upon the air, rising towards the night sky and flickering against the pale globe of the moon, which filled the night’s sky with its pallid aura.

He wrapped his arms around her waist, pressing his damp chest against the chill skin of her back. The midsummer air was warm and sticky, and the sounds of night birds and insects filled the world with their song, a cacophony which combatted the crash of waves against the rocks, against the headlands that hugged the cove. Despite the midnight hour, the sand beneath her toes still maintained the day’s warmth, and the hot air of the nearby fires washed against her. Yet coldness, echoed by the moon and stars above and before her, was a touch she could not ignore, that rested upon her flesh.
She stared out across over the roaring ocean; black waves that seethed and sw

'And he wouldn't try to kill me,' she thought, 'and he knows what I look like, so he wouldn't lose me in a crowd.'
She jumped as her phone rang. She stared at it suspiciously and then flipped it over to check who it was. She sighed as she realised it was Adrian. She answered the call.
"Hey, what's going on? You never call me while you're at work," She answered.
"James came in saying there was a shooting on the Renaissance," his concerned voice answered, "are you okay? You're not hurt are you?"
"Oh, no, I got out, I'm okay," Indra answered with a laugh, "bit of a scrape in the panicking crowds, but I'm fine."

It was dark. The light had been covered by a curtain of shadows.
The heat was repelled by the absolute will to be cold.
The curtain was cutting off all life. Allowing nothing to venture into the darkness.
The solitude was comforting, letting the thoughts play, causing things to shatter.
A young, careless thought, stumbled across a delicate vase full of red roses without thorns. They had no blemishes, they were perfect.
The thought toppled it over. The roses fell out, ending in them rotting.
Water started to pour out, one drop at a time.
It started off slowly. But it sped up.
Drops were falling out with no signs of stopping.
The thought just sat there and watched the water pour out. Refusing to move.
Some thoughts found paintings, they scanned them curiously.
There were no spoons or keys to be found.
The lack of cutlery and the loss of ability to unlock made the drops fall faster, in greater amounts.
Completely disregarding the amount of things they had broken, the thoughts

Hunting Vatana’s Cougars
Twylla | Exile Scout
Twylla looked around, she had been told of the momentary truce between herds for this event.She flicked her ears and looked around her, she already knew what the pair would be hunting, but she did not know her other team member. She waited patiently, eyes half closed in the easter sunshine, she stood stoic the wind rustling her hogged mane gently, maybe good things would come from this ceasefire and peace would resume, she had to stop herself laughing, the herds thrived on war, peace was a dream.
The mare hesitantly opened her eyes as she looked towards her approaching team member, she smiled slightly and introduced herself, trying to speak clearly, at times it was hard for some horses to understand her with her broad northern accent “Ey up!...I mean hello, I’m Twylla - your partner for today, its a pleasure and you are?”//

He tried to struggle out but it was no use and the loud whirring of the machine wasn't making it any easier to calm down. What was the machine going to do? Who had tied him up and left him here? Where IS here? As the questioned bounced around the geckos head the machines whirring started to pick up. It looked like the machine was finally starting up. After a few seconds he could feel the vibrations of the hose in his mouth indicating it was filling up with something. Terrified eyes followed the hose and saw the substance start snaking it's way towards him. It made him panic even more, but as he struggled more the clamps just held tighter and the strange liquid started to speed up. This was it.

So after taking a day break from this challenge after remembering the people that have fallen for our country, I thought that I would get back into this challenge and go with another lesson of “Sunday Alt History”. Today being about the IFL.
The first season of the IFL happened in 1897 with 8 teams competing in the first season. This of course was the only season to have a round robin finals series with Ennendin taking home the first title. They would later take home twelve more IFL titles with their last one being in 2000 against the Meala Demons.
The next season it was the Gegnolg Cats that would take their first of nine IFL titles with the team winning the first grand final against the previous year champion. While for the Carlton Blues, they won their first title in 1900 which would be their first of 16 they would win with the victory over the Meala Demons.
My team entered the IFL in 1925 with North Meala Roos and the Tasnon Devils. The last

The Pokemon Costume
When a new costume shop had popped up in the middle of the town he lived in, he was immediately intrigued. It was quiet and sleepy town, not much activity most days and since most of the stores were locally owned and managed, when a store take nobody knew anything about seemed to be built in one night and appear out of nowhere, people immediately took notice.
Being that Neil was on his summer break and most of his friends were going to vacations elsewhere or had summer jobs, the vacation had been much more boring then he had expected.
