When she finished, she was given permission to be excused by the Elder in charge and she happily made her way to the arena to sit down. It was about an hour until the mid day meal and she had some free time before she had to start her studies.
Salem and Elder Murdoch were standing side by side practicing strikes. They were practicing precision and speed in unity rather than on each other. Only when Salem made a mistake in his form, the Elder would whip his staff against Salem's to make the loud cracking sound, signaling the Elder's demand for Salem to correct his actions.
After repeating the move about ten times, Salem slipped up and made another slight mistake. When Elder Murdoch whipped the boy's staff again, he caught Salem's
Mahou Galaxy: Chapter 12Upon entering Sergio's room, Keith couldn't help but take a seat on his bed. Powering up the BioWarp engine to make sure it would kick into the faster travel mode that it had used before was mentally draining, and once she was feeling dizzy from that the toll of going on a rampage as an Orc decided to weigh in as well. She'd seen Sergio's room before, though at the time it was mixed in with the captain's room. In the few minutes she had been in her station, Sergio had managed to clean up the mess that remained from Heinrich's invasion of his territory, the piles of dirty clothes and food trays that had littered the floor stacked into tidy piles. Sergio was dusting off his shelf of miniature ships, each of them expertly crafted and painted, and each with a wood and metal base that was engraved with the name of the ship. Gingerly, Sergio lifted up one of the bases and held it close to Keith. It was an odd little ship, to be sure.

12) Humiliations :
Firemagma et Aquice avaient voyagé durant une petite semaine. Le jeune démon était toujours torse nu ; en effet, le duo n’avait toujours pas croisé une ville pendant leur trajet jusqu’aux anciennes ruines.
Lorsqu’ils y arrivèrent, ils purent contempler la bâtisse délabrée. Malgré son état, elle conservait une certaine prestance, du fait de sa roche noire ébène. Cette dernière se trouvait au centre d’une immense clairière, en plein milieu d’une forêt. Il n’y avait ni herbe, ni arbre, pas même des animaux. Le sol était sableux et poussiéreux.
Lorsqu’ils pénétrèrent dans ce lieu, Firemagma ressentit une atmosphère étrange, oppressante. Il avait même l’impression de ne pas être seul, voire même d’être observé. Il regarda plusieurs fo

Lissa: Chrom? Chrom!!
Lissa pointed at what looked like a robed person laying in the field, one that looked oddly familiar

“Hm…..feels too early to be up….and Haku is gone.” She mumbled.
Chihiro stood up from her spot and moved away from the futon. She stretched her arms high into the air as he smiled a bit. She was wearing a tank top and soft pj pants for sleepwear. She quickly got herself put together, changing into her regular uniform, brushing her hair, teeth, and making sure she didn’t smell bad. Once she was done, she slid the door open and smiled as she smelled something good and savory. She stepped out from her room and walked down the hall a bit.
“Morning Menju!” Chihiro called out as she headed over to the tall female who still wore
Untitled, part something of whatever“I have to go far north, to the north woods,” Adam’s father had said, sitting him down in the hall. “An alderman is true to his word. I and the king have sworn oaths to support the Waswagoning, and they have called for our aid. So I must go and lead the king’s army. Listen to your brother; he will be Alderman while I am gone.” With those words, and a loving cuff to the side of the head, his father went north with two dozen good warriors, each mounted on a valuable horse and armored with the best armor the blacksmiths can fashion, following the call of honor. They took with them a priest of Christ, the god of healing, wagons full of provisions, and the castle’s only rifle.Untitled, part something of whatever16 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

The sounds of the plane Vega’s group was flying could barely be heard, and Cybertel quickly darted inside with a throng of people, blending in with the crowd by pulling a hood over her head, hiding her eyes and ears. Her clothes hid most of the other features, although her neck and fingertips were visible. She tried not to draw attention to them by acting like the others entering the religious building.
Inside the temple was vast and intricate, and only when she crossed the threshold could Cybertel feel the familiar shiver of power which meant a crystal was nearby. The location… yes, as she suspected. It was one of the featured pieces of the temple, held up by a marble statue reverently. As breathtaking as the sight around her was, her attention was drawn to the crystal, and aiming how to get it with as little commotion as possible.

Carver still thought he heard thudding music from the car. Maybe the squeal of tires, too. They echoed in his skull as he regained consciousness.
Vision clearing, he glimpsed a sliver of cotton white sky. Then the dark buildings came into focus. An old woman peered at him from the window of her slum apartment. A cluster of dead-eyed kids watched from another.
His knee throbbed. That's where the car had first struck him. His forehead throbbed from hitting the windshield, which had pin wheeled him over the roof and onto the cracked asphalt.
The car was long gone now, leaving nothing but a scent of fuel and fear and shock. Not their fault. The street had been totally empty until someone had pushed him into it.
The next thing he was aware of was a girl’s voice.
As he sat up, rubbing his temple, her heavy boots clomped toward him. Ruby was sixteen, her hair an intentionally grungy blonde, her body crammed into all-black clothes that seemed a pinch too small f

This story takes place on a planet far away in our galaxy, in a solar system emitting strong and continues solar flares, rendering electronic technology impossible. There, on the 5th planet, a starship crashed, transporting two species, humans and Gals. I hardly thing that the Humans need a description, The Gals thou, are of humanoid form as well, with some distinct differences. First they are generally taller than the average human, but they are also build sturdier, which explains their larger necks, since they have two more bones holding up their head. Then they have dots going in pairs around the pointe ears down the body until the feet. The last notable feature, are their noses, going much higher into the forehead than the average human nose, but also separated by a line were their skin is darker, splitting up into two smaller rectangles on their forehead. Together the two species call themselves the Galiptiens, a word created by combining both humans and Gals, but

Runner ch9 pt V Behind Clippous, a window that took up the entire wall shimmered just the slightest, no, it was a large screen, showed a swarm of ships, lights in every direction around a large asteroid… comet? I never really learned the right space terms either. Not a satellite since I don’t believe it orbited around anything, but smaller than a planet, with many more lights shining into the absolute dark. We parked close enough, or I suppose, the cameras zoomed in enough to give more meaning to the shapes I saw in the map from the operations room: buildings under glass half-spheres, well lit and casting a blue and green glow outward.Runner ch9 pt V12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The cult leader sat the ruby down on the table, and began to chant in some strange language. As his voice rose, the leader took a long dagger out of his robe. Grasping with both hands, he raised the blade above his head, chanting loudly now. Just before he brought the dagger down, there was a flash and smoke, then something quickly snatched the ruby off the table.
Looking up, Mr. M stood before the cult leader. Taking the ruby out of the folds of his cape and pocketing it, the leader smiled. “You are foolish M, coming here by yourself, as I have dozens of worshipers at my command!” The doors burst open and a sea of robed men and women were ready to rush M.

Time was something I didn't have. Not now. Not anymore.
The clock on the wall said so, ticking steadily, chipping away at our chance of a better future. I tried willing it to slow down, to give me and Kyle and Arson more time to escape.
It didn't work.
We had to leave, I knew that. Soon. My brother said so in his rush down the hall in our small apartment. He woke me up and told me to hurry. Pack light, pay attention to the time, because according to the clock, we had less than ten minutes. It was 2 in the morning and I didn't get why it absolutely had to be now. Not at first when I was still trying to wake up and run around in the semi-darkness, bumping into things until I found and clicked on my lamp.
