Less Than Smooth - TeaserDavid had come down to the beach to relax on his day off from work in desperate need of some beach time. He worked in marketing at a large company and while he felt proud about his accomplishments, he was not so sure that he liked the sacrifices he had to make due to his job. Shaking his head for thinking of work while on his day off, he decided to lay out in the sand for a while and free his mind of the stress he had been under. David found a great spot near a rocky outcropping, not far from the limits of the tide. He took off his backpack and settled into the sand, the warm fine sand was just the perfect temperature for laying out that afternoon. David unpacked his backpack and laid out his blanket that he had brought from his downtown apartment that wasn't too far away. As he searched his backpack for his earbuds, his fingers graced against the large latex balloon.

The song used in this chapter is by Muse and titled, "Follow Me". It can be heard at [link]
Celeste and Linda spent the evening dancing with multiple immortals, each as deviously playful as the next, leaving the ladies spinning about breathless and giggling from the arms of one after the next – each immortal competitive with each other to prove they could be the cause of the most hilarity…..from flirtatious wits that had been cultivated over centuries to fingers moving at superhuman speeds, the girls didn’t stand a chance of doing anything except throw their heads back and laugh on through the night.
Yet, finally, Celeste looked up to see Linda being pulled into David’s adoring arms, which while delighting in embracing any female, seemed to hold Linda particularly close. Celeste wondered what was the mindset of an immortal that allowed for so much room to love everythin

Chapter 37: Boundaries
Merrick sighs as his gills wavered on the sides of his head. It’s been 25 suns since his captivity. It’s almost been a whole moon since he’s seen Adam’s wonderful face…
After the first while Merrick was here, he felt as if he can’t trust a single human in this place – Nigel especially. It’s not like that man is entirely bad.

Chapter 38: Final Tactic
Daniel inserted his key to unlock the apartment and opened the door, with his other hand carrying in several bulging bags of groceries. Once the door is opened, he takes the other bags to balance out the weight. He walks into the kitchenette, when he spots Jacob on the couch.
“Oh hey, Jakey!” He said, “This is rare, you home before me. What, is the lab quarantined or something?” He scratched his brown hair from an itch before picking up the Double Stuf Oreos from one of the bags.
“I’m glad you’re home,” Daniel continued as he put the bags onto the kitchen counter, “I swear, even on my days off, I’m always busy. Went to the dentist, I barely made it to the blood center on time, went by Payless for some new shoes, and a bunch of other stuff you’re probably not gonna remember,” He chattered as he quickly tucked the groceries away, “So I picked up your
