Queen in a CastleThe pink rabbit came again that night. Aithley hadn’t noticed when it had appeared and, like the night before, it stood under the window, watching her, as if it was telling her to follow it outside. It was another uneasy night for the twelve year-old and it was more than just the pink fur ball that kept her up. After the restaurant, her uncle had told her what the detective had said about Alba’s brother-in-law and she couldn’t get it out of her head. She had met Iselle and been disconcerted by her strange behavior and looks. Now she wondered about this unknown and unseen Dax Pengelly and what kind of man he was that Iselle would marry him. Was he tall or short? Handsome, ugly or just an average face that blended into a crowd? Fat or skinny? Muscular, or average build? What did a criminal look like anyway?Queen in a Castle11 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
Morning came in a fitful doze and the pink fur ball was gone, not that she’d paid it any heed. She was too tired to go down for breakfast. Everything around he

Bringing Anika back to the cabin, whatever reason why, was going to be much easier.
Juan was following Dell and Evelyn, lagging behind a bit as the other two walked towards the lake. Rain fell in sheets, battering the three as wind swept through the ghost town. Dusty roads turned to muck and quagmire as the trio continued forward, reaching the pier where Seven's infamous nemesis rested. "Leah!” Dell nearly roared, banging on the layer of corrugated aluminum that formed the shotgun-toting proxy’s roof.
The tanned young woman shot a dirty look at her intruders, dragging herself out of the lean-to. “And what the fuck do you all want?” Dell snorted, smirking nastily at the Californian. “I’m calling in that favor you owe me.” The once-privileged drama queen frowned, pulled herself out of the uneven piles of wood and metal she called home, and stood to stare at the Canadian. “Then like, let’s go girl.”
Scars Ch. 6 "We have to do something about that girl!" the orderly complained to another, "she's getting worse and worse! She's getting more violent and her screaming is bothering the other patients."Scars Ch. 67 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
"These treatments were originally supposed to make her lose her memory. Not make her a nuisance!" the other orderly agreed, "the only one who can even calm her down is Myra."
"Wasn't she going to quit because she was tired of the mistreatment of the patients?"
"Yeah. The only reason she's staying is because of the girl. There's a rumor going around that she's working for the cops."
"Nobody can prove it, though. Boss can't fire her since she's the only one the girl will listen to. I can't believe the payday we are going to get because of that kid!"

"MAMA NITE!!! UNCLE HOLLOW!!" she said with a bit of a frustrated tone. Nite looks over as the little girl jumps on to the couch, sitting in between them both.
"whats wrong Daniella? Daddy Andy is being a douche again? or did daddy Chase stole your princess dress?" the little girl shook her head.
"no...Daddy Chase said that you said to everyone how you met Uncle Jester and Shiro, and Aunty Raven and Melody". She pouts, "but you never told me i wanna know how!!"
Nite lets out a long sigh as she looks over to Hollow God which he just responded "well i never heard it either so i agree with her i wanna hear it too!!!" he whined like a child. Nite just facepalmed and looked down to the floor.
"you guys sure you really want to know? its a long story...." she trailed off. Both Daniella and Hollow God nod their heads as Nite lets
Felicity's Story Chapter 2As Felicity and Grace walked through the forest, Felicity noticed Grace looking more and more anxious as they got closer to town. “What’s wrong?” Felicity asked. “You’ve been looking around more and more as we’ve walked.”Felicity's Story Chapter 221 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
“Dr. Berry likes to release his failures into these woods, and they are attracted to the city’s lights,” Grace said back, “and thanks to our little skirmish earlier, I lost half of my usual arsenal, and based on what you said, you escaped without figuring out your own tech, except for those arms, so we are very lightly armed compared to what I would like to feel safe around here.”
Just as Grace finished her rant, they both heard a crash through the woods. They hid behind a tree and peeked around it. They saw a large monstrous creature that had the size of an elephant but had a mixture of different predatory traits.
“Must be one of his failures,” Grace said. “Otherwise something l

As we were going through the deaths, I found Chisuzu had been right to be suspicious of Raye Penber’s death and Naomi Misora’s disappearance. She had been suspicious of Kira’s abilities, suggesting he could kill in ways other than a heart attack, but chose not to so as to not set off any alarms about the secret murders he had committed.
Watari’s insignia showed on the screen as he relayed an Eraldo Coil was threatening to give away my identity. I could hear Chisuzu snickering from her chair.
“You have your first impersonator, Ryuzaki.” She grinned.
“What does she mean?” Light asked, his brows narrowing in puzzlement. Yagami was also worried my identity was at risk since Eraldo Coil was reputably known as the second greatest detective in the world.
“The detective known as Eraldo Coil is me. It’s quite simple really. Three of the greatest detectives in the world L, Coil, and Deneuve. They’re all actuall
[Bad Touch] Chapter 2I'm waiting for this guy to respond, but he's taking such a long time, honestly, what's with this kid? There's got to be some reason this guy is here, he already seems way off from the rest of the crazies at this academy. His eyes... he's different. Oh dear god, what if he's one of those mind readers and he's searching through my brain for answers... never mind, that's just dumb. He doesn't even look like one of them, but I can't let my guard down yet.[Bad Touch] Chapter 220 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
When the pink hooded guy spoke up I jumped a little, "What's with your arm?"
Oh. So he's going for the personal questions now, huh. What's his deal?
"Just some dumb scar, got it from a kitchen knife. Now answer!"
"Fine, we have a deal. The name's Khorinn but just call me Khor, but if you want my reason you'll have to tell me the truth about your scar. Do we have a deal?"
Damn kid, how can an eight year possibly be this clever? I feel my heart racing, I can't understand how he managed to know I was lying. Suddenly I'm not so sure i
