2 Lead Story
Poor Megan, Abby reflected with a traitorous giggle as she watched the rapidly-deteriorating romp in the shallow swimming and wading area off the girls’ beach. And poor Alyson. And Corey. And Dru. And…
Serenity and Abbie were particularly enthusiastic dunk-the-staff players, and had even developed a particular style to their attack. While Serenity, tall and lean, dragged at their victim’s shoulders, Abbie, shorter and stronger, would duck under the water and pull at her feet. In the case of the bigger staffers, like Alyson or Dru, Abbie was already known for tickling their feet to weaken them. Watching them play, and wondering along with Ms. Shivski when they should call a halt to the squealing, spraying madness, Abby was particularly fascinated by Abbie and Serenity. It was possible, at moments like this, to look at them and see nothing but two average, vivacious ten-year-o
The Second Chance: Chapter 8 - HopeBefore we could even do anything about it, Onawa, Elaku, and I had been grabbed and yanked from the ground by several large men. Speaking in rough voices in a language we didn't understand and wearing orange masks painted with the most frightening of expressions, our captors were easily the most terrifying thing I personally had ever seen. I kicked and screamed and fought to get out of my captor's arms, but it was to no avail; they were just too strong for me, and for my other friends as well, it seemed. All of us were rendered unable to move by our faceless captors, with the exception of one-- Tirta. We could only watch as he fought off man after man, freeing himself from the grasp of every single one. Seeing that he wouldn't cooperate, however, it wasn't long before one pulled out a dagger.The Second Chance: Chapter 8 - Hope1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
"No!!" I cried, but it was too late; the next thing I knew, Tirta was face down at my feet, blood pouring out of his chest. "Tirta! Tirta wake up, please!" I sobbed, unable to stop the tear
Omega Chapter 1: First Day of SchoolI was so excited to be at Veritas, the best school in the fucking world. A thousand miles from home… I could finally recreate myself—recreate Brent. I was so excited, I woke up over an hour before my first class started. There was no way in hell I’d actually make it back to sleep, so….Omega Chapter 1: First Day of School21 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
What’s new on social media?
Surprisingly, someone was actually online at six in the morning: Michelle ‘Mike’ Davis. We were close friends back in the day, like in primary school, but she moved away. We didn’t really keep up with each other after that: birthday notes, New Year’s messages, stuff like that. The first time we actually held a real conversation was after I posted a pic of my acceptance letter to Veritas. Apparently, she got accepted as well, and I guess she really wanted to rekindle the old friendship. I wasn’t opposed to it. My first new friend would be an old friend; and Mike was fucking beautiful! Like… sweet baby Jesu

Life or Death
I have been wasting days looking for him. After seeing how bad the kid was hurt by that prick just sent my blood boiling. After “interrogating” a couple of reapers I finally found who I was looking for. His long white hair tied back, pail white skin, resting his hands on his trusted silver skull head cane, and wearing that same raven black suit. Yep, definitely the right one. At a distance he appeared as a black silhouette against a clear full moon, his piercing red eyes locked upwards as he studies a women standing on a cliff above the shore.
“Hey!” I was able to break his concentrations and he turned to face me as I approached him.
“War? I never expected to see you her. These people have not dealt with conflict for three generations.” He returned his gaze back to the women standing atop the cliff. I
Luna, the elegant queen (prologue)The image on the mirror; flawless as always. Exactly what she wanted; perfection. After a last brushing. She rose from her comfortable, velvet chair and put on some perfume. Her aide outside of her room called to her.

“Coming.” she replied to her aide and with her one hand she opened the door. The aide smiled at her and her beautiful pink dress that matched her hair perfectly.
“Today your highness, you have a speech to give to your people. They will gather in 11 o clock.” said the aide.
“Do we have tea ready ?” asked Luna.
“Yes and the mayor is waiting for you. He is quite the fool, your royal highness. Blaming one of the best leaders of our country for murders of rebels is ridiculous to say the least.” said the aide. Luna was used to her chattiness.
“Thank you. Your service is appreciated.” said Luna wit
