Submerged I’ve always wondered what drowning felt like. Not holding your breath underwater for as long as you could, but actually drowning. Not to say that I had wanted to find out, but I was still curious never the less, and now I guess I could say I knew. It’s just like those movies you watch…something horrible happens, but all you can think is “That will never be me.” But here I am, stuck in my seatbelt as my rustic car sinks to what is, as far as I’m concerned, oblivion. Struggling to free myself from what is to become my tomb in a mere matter of minutes, I hold back a chuckle, the cruel irony of the situation almost enough to know what little air I had left out of my lungs. Just the other day, I had mumbled under my breath that I hoped my sister would drown when she went to the beach with her husband, whom she only married for money. Three beach houses and more servants than three generations of my family combined. If only she had heaSubmerged3 days ago in Short Stories
Dunelight's DenialIt wasn't true. It couldn't be true.Dunelight's Denial2 days ago in Short Stories
Dunelight stumbled slightly as she walked, her stomach still a little queasy from this morning. She'd woken up this morning to find her stomach rumbling in a distressed way, her paws were heavy and she felt shaky as she got up. Something wasn't quite right.
Her first intention had been to go and visit the Medicine Cat, but then everything about Deepstar called everybody's attention, Fleetingpaw was busy examining the Leader's body, as were two of the other Cats with medical knowledge, and while she considered looking for Noiseflame, sneaking off at such an important time seemed rather rude.
"Are you okay?" Ghostbreath whispered, her sister was sitting beside her, a worried look on her face, "You look a little shaky?" The pale she-cat blinked between her and the dead Leader, "Are you upset about Deepstar?"
Dunelight shook her head quickly, regretting it immediately as her stomach gave another lurch, but she wanted to reassure her sister, as she could

Well, it started like any other Saturday – I woke up about seven, went downstairs and made myself some coffee while I watched the news, and then I went to the shower. My plan was to go into town and pick a few things up, then come home and have a quiet night in with a takeaway and a nice bottle of wine.
Well, that did happen – just not quite the way I had intended it to do so...
But I’m getting ahead of myself – I had the shower, dried myself off, put on clean underwear, and then a pair of grey jeans with a pink and beige striped jumper. Walking to the wardrobe, I then grabbed a pair of knee length brown riding boots and pulled them on, tucking the legs into the leather, and then walked downstairs.
I had also put on a long string of beads, which I made sure sat on top of the light grey poncho I put on, and then grabbed my handbag and car keys, smiling as I went out, locked my front door, and then drove off to town.
So here I am
The Gifts He's LeftMy husband had already left for work by the time I woke up every morning,The Gifts He's Left2 days ago in Short Stories
But never did I wake up next to an empty half of the bed.
He'd always had a habit to leave me a gift or surprise,
For he knew "with a smile" was the best way to wake up every day.
One morning I woke up to a a small box and note,
"Eat one every time you think of me".
Those chocolates were gone and devoured before noon,
For I'm always thinking of my hubby.
Another morning before I woke up,
I rolled over in bed and something tickled my nose!
I opened my eyes and laughed in surprisal,
For an adorable stuffed bunny laid before my face.
Now only once have I awaken one morning,
To something that displeased me.
The morning after me and my husband had an intense argument,
I woke up to the bed on fire.

“I think she's waking up, Miss Ridgeway,” I heard a girlish voice saying.
“So soon?” I would have thought the sedative would have worked better.”
I cracked an eye and looked around a bit. I was in an office somewhere. My hands were limp and my costume felt odd on my body. I jumped as I felt a rap against my gloved knuckles. I sat up straight, eyes focusing on a severe woman with platinum hair. Her face was one of fading beauty with just a hint of age around the eyes. I knew who she was immediately.
“Charity Ridgeway, I presume?” I said with more than a hint of sarcasm. “Or should I say Gina Amorana? “
“So you've heard of me?” she said, nonplussed by my revelation. “I should have realized the Wisdom of Athena was in there somewhere.” She tapped the side of my head with her ruler.
I looked down, and saw my costume had been replaced with a

"Kaley, me and the girls were going to get some McDonalds. Want to come?" Ben asked. "But we just had a whole pizza pie 20 minutes ago. I'm stuffed." Kaley said letting out a huge fart from the greasy pepperoni pizza. "But we were going to get Apple pie." Ben said, trying to persuade Kaley. "I'll go if there's Apple pie!" Kaley said. She was much fatter than she was when we last saw her. With all of the eating from the McCarthy's, Kaley gained a jaw dropping 100 pounds, brining her to 240 pounds. Her sagging double chin morphed into her chubby cheeks, and was starting to cover up her neck. Her boobs, which were big to being with, we're now huge EE cups which bounced up and down with every step. Her meaty thighs were barely being contained by her leopard print leggings, jiggling with each waddle she took. Only one third through the wife swap experiment and Kaley was already obese.

Chapter 13: A Bigger Issue
A shadow loomed over Hermione like constant, thundering rain. As she swayed from side to side, her flattering robes cavorting about her delicately – ballerinas twirling up and down, bobbing with her gently. Her hair was more dishevelled, yet somehow more entertaining, more flattering, doubled with her big brown eyes.
Still, somewhere, stuffed between her skirt and her polished body, was an adult nappy, like a splash of ugly paint on an otherwise immaculate piece. Hermione tottered through Hogwarts' empty walls – trying her best not to waddle, even though this nappy just about forced her to. She wiped her matting, messy hair from her forehead. Exhaling, she pushed her skirt down a little bit. Hermione crept further, watching the magical many sets of stairs rotate in unison. One turned in her direction with a creak.
Hermione found her mind wandering. How long would she be in these adult nappies? It had been embarrassing enough the

It had no color. It didn't have any shape in sight beyond the ground she landed on. Then she retrieved a paintbrush, one almost as big as herself...and gave the land life".

My mother was the one who made and cut out the design of Majoria's dress and left me to sew and add the decor. After I sewed the skirt, I was finally done. I folded the dress and placed it in a box alongside a pair of socks and black shoes and waited for her to get to the dorm. I quickly wrote a note and placed it with the gift, placed it behind her pillow, took a textbook, and sat down on my bed when I heard her walking back.
"Ti, I'm coming in." Said Majoria.
When she opened the door, I said to her "Welcome back Majoria."
"You haven't forgotten what today is did you?" She asked.
"No but look behind your pillow."
She gasped when she saw the gift. "Ti! You shouldn't have!" She took the note off and read it out loud.

There are no words to describe how lucky I am to have you as my best friend. Even throughout all of the crazy stuff we've been through, you are like a sister to me. And I wish y

Two brothers ran to the beach, laughing and playfully pushing each other. “Bet ya I can beat you to that old shack!” Shouted one boy, pointing at a gloomy looking building half buried in sand. The other boy grinned and started to run ahead of his brother, “You’re on!” He then took off his light blue shirt and ran straight for the salty water, rather than racing his twin. “Hey! I said the shack not the ocean, Felix!” Laughed the brother. Felix jumped in and vanished in the water. A few minutes passed, and he didn’t come back. This worried his brother. “F-Felix?” He ran through the shallow water and looked around for bubbles, but none could be seen. He held his hands over his mouth and shouted for his brother until something jumped up and grabbed his arms and pulled him underwater.

The grey lion had only just returned to camp from a hunting patrol. Had only just deposited his catch at the fresh-kill pile. Had only just settled down to eat the fish he selected for his late-afternoon meal. And then Aiode appeared at his side and ushered him back out of camp. “Come with me,” was all she said as she led him through the dark forest. Neither feline said a word since then.
By the time they reached the outskirts of Shadow Empire, where the woodlands started giving way to the beach, Seidon could no longer keep quiet. “Princess Twiggy, why did you bring me out here?”
“Prince Puffball, dude, chill. It’s important…” the serval chided him as they came to a halt near a small tree.

The girl now known as Savitri couldn't have asked for a better life than she had right now. Time had passed since she was taken in by her new parents and her life had changed drastically for the better.
Gone were the days where she had to sleep with one eye open in case danger was to be avoided, for she now had a welcome shelter and a comfortable bed. She no longer saw food as a necessity for survival, seeing as she and her family ate at least three times a day, and she actually started doing something she hadn't in a long time--savor the taste and develop long-forgotten favorites. And since she was no longer living like an unwanted animal, she could just be a child again--be curious about almost everything, welcome any parent when they came home after work or chores, and doing so with a smile and hug.

Time traveling guardianOrphanage is a place where dream go to die and the feeling of abandonment settles in your mind as time goes by. It more like a prison, school and a job for kids. Kids do simple tedious chores for a minimal pay that could barely cover for gum. Some parents even use the thought of sending their own kids to the orphanage. As warning to keep them in line just like saying boogeyman is real. A military training camp would be more fun than living at the despair inducing place. The headmaster saw the the kids as dollar signs from the government. The more kids the more money they earn. So it was common to see two kids sharing a twin size bed. The only freedom was how they spend the thirty minute recess in the enclosed wooden privacy fence. Old chalk nubs, oblong shaped baseballs, weathered broken toys and each other. Couples come to the orphanage to adopt to give their kid a brother or sister, Maybe the female was sterile.

As far as I remember she had always been there. From the first moment I have open the eyes she was watching me with her tender smile, so sweet, so cute, her warm gaze running on me with happiness. She said to me I was perfect, I was her little flame, and I loved it. She rocked me of her soft voice, and I dreamed of wonderful worlds full of bright blue sky.
I grew up in her embrace, far of all worries, always happy, never sad. If I had to fall, she was there to put me on my legs. If I had a nightmare, she was there to kiss my cheeks and make me forget my tears.
Now I’m running. i’m running as fast as my legs allow me. As fast as my small body can go. Today she isn’t good. I knew her swollen belly wasn’t a good thing. She had tried to explain to me it was normal, it was only life, but I had so much diffi

Eirian was going through all of her fears in her mind as she blindly stumbled through the darkness. She rubbed her arms to fight off the sudden chill that went through her. Her mind was filled with unpleasant thoughts as she strode through the darkness, and after a while, she gave up on thinking happy thoughts. As she stumbled and fumbled along, she couldn't quite shake the feeling of being watched. Her heartbeat started speeding up just a tiny bit as she wondered if the ghosts were back for a round two, and Eirian didn't know if she was going to be able to handle it a second time around. She took in a few shaky breaths, but it did nothing to mask her steadily rising panic. If there was something or someone approaching her, they'd have to get very close in order for her to see them. Hold on, wait, that wasn't necessarily true. She reluctantly thought back to when her brothers and the two professors had walked aw
