There was a black wolf standing in the doorway, staring ominously at Archer. Archer could feel a dark aura coming from the wolf. Its fur was midnight black and it wore a charcoal black scarf with storm grey swirl patterns on them. It had crimson red markings under its eyes and on the tips of its ears. It also wore strange charcoal black anklets that have the same storm grey swirl patterns on them. Its storm grey eyes seemed to see through Archer's soul. The wolf pulled back its lips, revealing diamond white teeth as it slowly walked forward. Suddenly, it lunged towards Archer but before it could sink its claws into him, a flash of white knocked the wolf aside. The black wolf growled but it then receded to a whimper once it recognised the shape in front of it. Archer saw a white wolf with blue eyes standing in front of him, its back facing him. The black wolf cowered in front of the white wolf, looking up at it with pleading eyes. Archer sat there, stunned by the scene that ha
Sorority of Terror Chapter Eight Breathing in the fresh air of outside I felt relieved to be out of the hospital. As Xavier guided me to his car I looked at the trees with changing colors. A nice fall breeze made a pile of crisp leaves fly around us. We got to the car and he opened the door for me. I laughed to myself as I thought of what an old man once told me. He had said chivalry is not dead, it is just broken.Sorority of Terror Chapter Eight3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
"Do you want food?" He asked me with a big smile. "I know a restaurant near the castle. You look really pretty today." Looking down at what I was wearing it did not register as pretty to me. I was wearing one of his band shirts that went all the way down to my knees and a pair of black leggings with my spiky black flats. To be honest I looked like I was doing the walk of shame. He was wearing his regular black jeans and a red and black shirt today.
"Says you. I look like a chick doing the
1. First SightingsThe house was cluttered with people, some of which Claudia knew and some she didn't. They were all there to pay respects to her late grandmother. She knew they all meant well with their smiles and their condolences, but for some reason she wanted no part in that. Her grandmother had passed away early Monday morning from ongoing illnesses, and here stood people who wanted nothing to do with her during that time, crying and acting like they gave a damn--it infuriated her; add that to the fact that she thought she was losing her mind.1.

She first noticed them during her grandmother's service; people who looked like they didn't quite fit into the crowd of mourners. Some were dressed in formal wear, while some wore clothing that didn't seem to be from this time--then there were the others; these were the ones that truly disturbed her. They came in small glimpses, as if they didn't want to be seen. These wore hospital gowns, some tattered clothing--some of which were bloodied, and she could sw

Garrett looked at Gervant, wondering what the undertaker would want to speak to him about. "What is it Gervant?" He quietly asked as his friend poured some tea. Gervant looked at Garrett, a thoughtful look on his face, making his brown eyes seem darker, almost black.
"It's about Kagayaku. The family will want her." Gervant stated, looking up, "I have seen it repeatedly in the past. The family will want her because of her eyes, eyes that are said to only exist in the realms of the gods." He then looked back to where Toby had taken Galena and the orphaned child.
"What's so important about silver eyes?" Garrett asked, knowing Gervant would know the answers to these kinds of things.
"This village still practices some of the pagan ways, and they say that a child with silver eyes can either bring misfortune or good luck, depending on who you ask. Kagayaku, being Michel's only child, she stands in the family's way of getting the land that Michel h

They didn't go to church that Sunday morning. Rachel's dad had stayed at the hospital late that night, waiting for her grandpa to get out of surgery. He had called after Rachel was already asleep, and they decided to go and visit in the morning.
Rachel felt a bit uneasy about going, after all those terrible dreams she had had about the hospital, but she did want to see her grandfather. And yet at the same time she didn't. She didn't want to see him in such a state of weakness, and she wasn't sure he'd want her to see him like that, either. The whole car trip toward the hospital, she was shaking and fighting down a sick feeling in her stomach.
“It'll be okay,” Naethyn whispered in her ear, patting her shoulder. “He may not be the way you remember him being, but now that the surgery's done, he'll be getting better soon.”
“Yeah... sure,” Rachel murmured with a nod of her head.
She gripped her mother's hand tightly as

There are some people you can trust.
The others, you can’t trust with anything.
The trio walked out of the house, not talking to each other. Maria bit her lip, worried that Scruff might try to betray them as E had said that he did. She really wanted to get to the afterlife, but Scruff, with his messy, black hair and rags for clothes, definitely did not look like someone that could be trusted easily. What if he was working with Death? What if Scruff was Death’s plan to finally end E’s suffering, but failed, which lead to Maria’s death? All of those questions swam in Maria’s mind.
“I can’t believe you don’t trust me, Ezra,” Scruff said, scoffing, “After all the time we spent together-”
“We spent ONE month together. That was IT. Then, you had to go and betray me. And I told you, I go by E now.”
“I’m not calling you, E, Ezra!”
The two stopped and growled at each other, giving t
Barren: Ch.1 It was a cool and quiet autumn day in the small town of Ponyville, just past ten A.M. The streets were fairly empty as the sun nestled into the morning sky. Birds chirped and dogs barked as the residents of Ponyville awakened to start their day.Barren: Ch.12 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
A young pegasus, about the age of nineteen, named Akira strolled through the streets letting the cool breeze ruffle her feathered wings. "Ahhh." she exhaled allowing the crisp autumn air to fill her lungs. She turns and walks down a street lined with various shops filled with everything from green crisp vegetables to sweet ripe fruits. Akira stops by a vegetable stand and carefully examines the goods. She decides to pick up a moderate sized head of cabbage and carefully inspects it. "This cabbage looks delicious! I wonder if June will enjoy a nice cabbage stew for lunch today." the young pegasus mumbles to herself.
"You gonna buy that?" a gruff, scratchy voice says from behind the s
Unspeakable - Chapter 3In exploring the question of whether he could convince himself that he was somebody else, Mr. Lenkowitz – then only a child – realised, to his horror, that the process had not only already begun, but was actually on the verge of succeeding; that he had, in fact, been engaged in such an endeavour all of his life, albeit unwittingly. It was, in his words, "the insidious process of socialization, which begins in the womb and is no respecter of physical death." He feared that it was only a matter of time before his authentic self was lost entirely, perhaps forever, resulting in a kind of living death: a zombie existence that, even as a child, he could readily discern in the unconscious lives and attitudes of those around him.Unspeakable - Chapter 32 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
"Go on," I urged, scooping up some peas.
We had taken our conversation into the school cafeteria, where all but a few stragglers had long since departed, which was probably just as well. After all, even I knew that having lunch with a teacher could
Cover My Eyes (Eight)Kara got up early the next day after having laid awake all night again. Not only because of the creaking and the bad feeling, but being too lost in her thoughts. Thoughts of waking up under the dirt, her cut and bruised skin, this place, these strangers. She thought that whoever had buried her, she might have known them for a while, perhaps for a long time. Many of her scars seemed to have been made long ago. Perhaps not very long ago, but they were not recent. And then there were the recent cuts, and the recent bruises. Whoever had done this, it was something that had been going on for some time.Cover My Eyes (Eight)2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
And the woods she had been buried in were close to this house. And that was her main thought. Could it be someone living here that had done this to her? If so, the others would have noticed if one of them had her somewhere, torturing her for such a long time, wouldn't they? Unless they were all in on it together. Did that make any sense? She had no idea. She just wanted to find out. She neede

Terra was just said in her room. Nothing unusual there. Her parents were arguing as always and her brother and herself tried to shut themselves away from it. Both their parents were kind. It's just, they never got along. At all. The last time they were seen not arguing was when Zack was 3 months old. And he was now 12. Of course, the teen heard a knock at her door and in stepped Zack.
"Still arguing?" She asked. He nodded. There was something wrong with Zack but she didn't question it. That was, until now.
"Terra? Is something wrong?" Zack asked. Terra looked up at him, almost smiling.
"Actually, yes. There is." She almost laughed at her brother's shocked face. "Is something wrong with YOU?" Zack looked even more shocked than before. If that was even possible. Terra wasn't as fazed at his expression; she was kind of expecting it.
"What?" He asked, looking a little bit hurt that his own sister thinks that something is seriou
Hunter of the Night Chapter Two My eyes fluttered open and I sat up. The simple room was bathed in bright red moonlight. My heart stopped because I knew a vampire was nearby.Hunter of the Night Chapter Two3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
"Are you okay?" Dracul asked me as he entered the room. "I heard a commotion." When our eyes met we both quickly looked away as our faces flushed a deep red. Looking closer I saw he had long white fangs and red eyes. He was the vampire nearby. It felt as if my lungs had filled up with water and I couldn't breath.
"Get out of here you demon!" I shouted loudly as I jumped out of bed. "Why did you kiss me earlier? Why haven't you eaten me yet?" All I could think to myself was how on earth did he survive the sunlight yesterday. Frantically searching my boots I grabbed my gun and pointed it at him. He took a couple cautious steps back.
"I am not an evil vampire. I hunt the deer in the woods. I kissed you because
