Pet Hope was looking carefully round the dinner table, set for four, and wondering how long it would be before the others arrived. It was still early, true, but there was something she wished to tell her daughter, and her friends – something very important.
She had spent the morning with her solicitors, with her bank manager, and now everything was in place, everything was ready. Once they were here, she would be able to sit them down – all she needed now was for the caterer to arrive...
She walked back out into the hallway and looked at herself in the mirror. She looked good for her age, the loose fitting chocolate brown dress hanging on her pert body, coming down to just above her knees and her lower legs sitting in a pair of brown suede boots with wedge heels.
The doorbell ringing made her turn her head, as she walked towards the door and opened it. Standing outside was a tall, thin woman, wearing a black coat over a white blouse and a knee length

Only a day and a half had passed come their first encounter, and the result bore proudly on the Magister’s thick and mottled coat. It was a line of four scars, each still fresh and red and burning against the cold air of the winter, though there was nothing he could do about that. What he could and did do, however, was push himself through the longer route back to the Nest to inform his Alpha - his pack - that there was something out there. Something aggressive.
Lykos briefly mentioned that they were cougars, and Anders had never personally seen one. Rather, he’d only been told stories as a child, so to have a close up with one that left both body and pride wounded was enough for him to decide that getting involved was not a choice he wanted to take. But they did have a job, and as a Magister, a protector of sorts, the pale wolf shifted himself through the trees with a sluggish gait he wasn’t known for. His jaws hung low, e

"Hello kids and welcome!" said the zookeeper, greeting them. "Now I know you're all VERY excited to see our amazing animals, but we need to establish some ground rules first!"
Sam yawned loudly. Mr Wobbles frowned at him.
"Now most of the animals here are safe behind glass or fences." said the zookeeper. "But we don't want that to encourage silliness and general dangerous behaviour. I'm sure none of you want your hands bitten off by a tiger!"
"There are tigers here!?" squealed Annie. "They'll eat me!?"
"Don't be silly." said Kate. "Tigers are cats! And my cat doesn't want to eat me!"
"Tigers WILL eat you." said the zookeeper. "But they can't. So don't worry."
"I wanna l-l-l-l-leave!" squealed Annie, clenching her legs.
"Can we at least throw Ren into the tiger cage?" asked Sam.
"Fuck you..." said Ren.
"No, we'd get sued." said the zookeeper. "We were already sued last week for feeding an annoying toddl

Jul smiled excitedly. “Cooking lessons~? Can I too?” He didn’t wait for an answer but simply followed his fellow pirates into the galley.

Marcy yawned opening her eyes softly blinking to awake slowly, it was almost near afternoon as she didn't move her head from Napoleon. She couldn't believe someone could deicate there time to her she saw no entire point. Marcy had a random flash of memories where everyone would walk by her cage back at the pound with no care. She sighed she had a brother back in the kennel she grew saddened maybe he's dead. Than again no one seemed to care for her except her brother and mother. Her mother disappeared along with her brother after she was 'adopted'. She remembered the last time she returned home she was slapped and she ran away again. Marcy notice perhaps that was why everyone saw her as helpless. Being pushed around by everyone , she gave a sigh, she was because she was too kind hearted to attack any living soul. Not even abusive
Lost in the fogIt was really quite foggy when the group set off that morning. In fact, they had almost considered stopping the hunt altogether, but they kept going anyway. It wasn't going to be enjoyable in the slightest as it was cold and wet, and they could barely see a metre in front of them, but perhaps that could help them as well as hinder? It meant that the prey wouldn't be able to see them either.Lost in the fog9 hours ago in Short Stories
They realised their mistake in not staying back at the tribe when they somehow got separated from one another. With some of the group being quite anxious to begin with, this didn't help at all.
The fog had rolled in late the previous night, when most were fast asleep, so no one had expected it in the morning. No one had really paid it much attention around camp, but it seemed thicker out in the forest. Or maybe it was just because the terrain was less familiar. Whatever the reason, it wasn't doing them any favours. One minute they had been travelling as a group, the next... well, they weren't.
Wish'Twas not long ago, the not too distant past that is. A young boy, in small town in Louisiana, lives happily and playfully. It was a wholesome community. People shared and traded material goods. There were old folk, with wild and wondrous tales. Young adults would work in the fields while the children would play in them. One night, however, something strange began happening, the town's livestock began disappearing. Cows, horses, chickens... Gone, without a trace. The young boy and a small group of his friends decided to take it upon themselves to find them. The boy recalled an old story his grandfather told him. Of a mythical stone found deep in the woods. The one who discovers the stone could be granted a single wish. The boy, and his friends, went to look for the stone. Fortunately, one of his friends' grandfather was a hunter when he was their age. So he used the wisdom of his grandfather's teaching to help fend off hostile wildlife. Another one's grandmother was a cook, she had leaWish8 hours ago in Short Stories
Ch. 18 A good morningAs the rays of light poured through the curtains in sollux's bichromatic bedroom, Karkat woke with a jolt. He let out a small sigh when he realized where he was and relaxed a bit. He rolled over in the bed and was stopped by some mass that was sharing it with him. Jake? he thought to himself lifting his head clumsily to try and focus his still sleep riddled mind. what met his gaze was not Jake but Sollux who was lying still beside him. Karkat was unaware as to whether or not the boy was actually asleep, but he opted to stay quiet as he climbed out of the bed anyways. "Good morning kk." came his quiet voice from under the covers. Karkat jumped slightly, being startled by his voice. he turned around and looked at Sollux who was now rolled over to face him.

[SU] Introduction: AgateA small part of the wall of a canyon has been crushed, revealing a tiny cave where was a space for a single man. Through it, crawled out a girl. An unusual one. She had a long black hair, light indigo skin, and a… stone located on her forehead. She was wearing only a tank top, a pair of gloves, some baggy pants and a pair of big metal boots; everything was - just like her - in dark or light shades of indigo.[SU] Introduction: Agate7 hours ago in Short Stories
She coughed, feeling the dust around. Then, she stood up and saluted.
“Agate ready for duty!” she said in a military tone. When nobody replied, she looked around. She was alone… on some kind of a dry wasteland. However, she saw several holes in the walls of the canyon, similar to hers. Above it all, there was a perpetually clear, night sky.
And suddenly, a huge thunder hit the nearby hill. The Gem squealed and curled up because of the shock.
”What was that?!” she asked herself. After a while, spent on monitoring the environment, she stood up agai

I Believe In You (Chapter 3)Commander Zones and (a very grumpy) Commander Riku gave the Dioxes Squad the details of their mission in private. They would depart as soon as everyone was ready, and the trio would be sent down to the planet with all the equipment they would need while the rest of the Rebel Alliance held their position from Dioxes’s moon’s high orbit, hidden from the Empire’s sight, ready to send reinforcements should the need arise. While they waited for the Imperial army’s arrival, the three Rebels would inspect the temple and set up any defenses they deemed necessary. The battle plan itself would remain entirely up to them.I Believe In You (Chapter 3)3 hours ago in Short Stories

THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT.....
Sand blew along the ground, a few tumbleweeds scattered along the quiet desert, and an armadillo walked along the ground, enjoying the typical sunny day-
The armadillo's day was ruined when a flaming motorcycle ran it over, reducing it to a skeleton. Ghost Rider..... Was on the hunt. There had been a massive energy signal, and it's placement was in the middle of the desert. It was entirely made of rage, so much so that even Bruce Banner decided to ignore it. Hell, the fact that Ghost Rider was going to investigate it was unknown to the Avengers.

Taming WF29: Attempt 1 Ava, Nuru, and Balan had been walking through the mountains all day looking for the elusive white dire known as Luna. But now she wishes she had been more careful in the search. Ava and Nuru rounded a corner and right in front of them stood the massive longmane tokota. Ava looked at her in amazement. The dire was magnificent. She stood proud and tall. Her long white mane blowing in the crisp winter breeze.Taming WF29: Attempt 19 hours ago in Short Stories
Ava was holding her breath. She didn't want to scare Luna away. Ava was determined to tame her. She knew she had to be gentle and calm, but it was hard because the dire tokota was very intimidating. Luna was said to be gentle and kind, but Ava wanted to make sure. Ava had brought along her most gentle tokota, Nuru. If Luna and Nuru could get along then maybe she could get close enough to pet Luna. Ava had also brought along Balan who was said to have a way with wild tokotas. Just then she heard a rustling in a bush next to her, Nuru and Balan. Av
Kirima, Nukka, Jyoti: RoF A crisp wind blew across the winter-locked lands. Not even a quarter hour had passed since the sun’s rays had started to brighten the skies when a young boy walked into a small clearing. The reins of two heavily laden tokotas were carefully grasped in his small hands. Releasing a short sigh the boy, named Natsiq, rubbed a hand along a bright tawny patch on the shoulder of the smaller of his two charges. Nukka, a regular-built tokota, nudged Natsiq’s shoulder. An ever-present gleam of mischief in her green eyes. Smiling slightly the boy rubbed his hands over his arms and shifted his weight back and forth to keep warm until the dire built Kirima moved so that her large paws were planted on either side of the boy and sat. The youth fit nicely in the gap formed by her broad chest and powerful fore-legs. Patting one of the dire’s legs in affection Natsiq watched the trees around the small group until Nukka let out a baKirima, Nukka, Jyoti: RoF4 hours ago in Short Stories

It was the end of the day, the end of the first proper week of school in fact, and Bethany couldn’t wait until tomorrow. She was going out with Tien for their first date and for once was happy to be getting up early and for a bit of a drive since she needed to go pick him up. Walking down the hall someone walked up to her wrapping their arm around her shoulder and pecked her cheek.
“Hey, B, how’s my girl doin’ today?”
Bethany shrugged the large arm off of her shoulders and tried to move away but Travis grabbed her wrist and started to lead her down the hall. “Hey! Travis, let me go I have to get home.”

“De mi demonio y el amor”
Ese quince de octubre fue la herramienta perfecta para que el tiempo se detuviera. Su beso hasta entonces considerado imposible llegó intempestivamente; un instante efímero que recordarás por el resto de tu vida. Sus labios de canción abrevaron en los tuyos y recordaste que hay golpes tan fuertes en la vida que no sabes; la vida no es muy seria en sus cosas. Casi un año después de su primer contacto visual pudiste sentir a un dios inasible que te ahogaba. Sentiste su aliento cerca de tu rostro y sólo pensabas en correr lejos, muy lejos.
En la ineludible plática posterior a ese beso, descubriste que otras personas estaban en su vida aparte de ti. Su novio (algo bastante lógico) y tu mejor amigo. (Sí, parece recurso de novela de folletín pero así fue). Es decir que compartías su pensamiento y hasta sus besos con otra persona: tu amigo. El novio te importaba poco, es

It didn’t take long to catch up within sight of the tails of Daithi and Sionn, pressing into the slushed earth with his claws to propel him further to run at their side. All around him he could hear the silent swish of the undergrowth as the rest of the pack’s able glistened through Sanctum, their forms passing in colored blurs through the corner of his eye. Though only a skilled Vektreni could be able to detect such a thing. Vektren wolves were highly stealthy, even the heaviest of members such as himself knew how to control their weight while running. Any normal wolf would think it was a strong wind moving through the undergrowth.
The Sanctum thinned out to a much more open mountainous terrain, forming a fork in the path that lead around the Howling Peaks and to the northern face of the mountain, edging the Thriving Wilds. As himself and the rest of his followers neared the mountain bend, his fast pace slowed as they approached, and like

He lifted his head with a dazed expression, wiping the drool from the corner of his mouth. He yawned widely. Classes had started again last week and he was certainly feeling the mornings.

Sleeping out where you could see the open sky, the stars. Breathing in the fresh air, and enjoying the silence. Tribe life was nice, particularly as no one knew who he really was so he could just pretend to be someone else.

Mercury huffed over at him, seeming to almost roll his eyes at his handler's sentimentality, though he seemed very comfortable where he was laying down beside him. The grass was soft, the snow had thawed just enough to leave it exposed as a place for him to comfortably lay. But he liked living in the tribe, there was plenty of food whenever he was hungry, and that's where all his friends were – human and Tokota alike. Plus there was always trouble to be made.
