He was awake and he was smiling, despite his weakness.
He would heal and he would be alright.
Raphael watched, from a few feet away, as Donnie gave their oldest brother yet another checkup, talking about the damage done, about healing times, about this and that and it all turned to white noise in his ears.
With infinite patience, Leonardo sat on the couch, answering whatever Donnie would ask him, smiling reassuringly at the youngest, at April, even managing a small grin for Casey.
When steel-blue orbs rose to find his, Raphael dropped his gaze away and off to the side, unable to meet his brother's eyes.
April blurted about Raphael's vigil at Leo's side and the automatic reply came before he even thought about it. “Eh, it was nothing.”
Leonardo kept his eyes on Raph, noticing the way he tensed, obviously feeling his eyes on him. He smiled.
“Still. Thank you, Raph.” And his brother only tensed more, lips thinning out, giving a stiff shrug.

Curious as can be the fluffy, tiny shape of a half moon old kitten poked her head out of the nursery. Her baby blue eyes were only just starting to change to their adult color: a brilliant yellow. The little kit was still some what shaky on her paws, having just started getting used to walking instead of crawling. Her eyes turned wide in astonishment at the white stuff falling from the sky and covering the ground, sneezing one speck touched her nose. Causing the little she-kit to squeak in surprise at how cold and wet it was. She swiftly looked back into the burrow to make sure her clingy, bossy brother wasn't awake. "Gwood he's still sweeping with Heathershine."she thought with a giggle. Eagerly she hurried outside, jumping around trying to catch the white stuff like a spring hare.

While I waited for Eli and the rest of the company at 7:00 PM, I looked around the whole community governed by Davis Harrison High and noticed that the map consisting their society and the regions around them were much different and so I asked an expert in drawing maps if we could make a new map that combines ours and theirs. An artist named Phil agreed to do the task and began much work on it. Meanwhile, I noticed that some of the students within the community were still working together compared to where I came from, where there was much political strife. As I watched the society progress, a Dilophosaurus from the Jurassic Period was captured and was eventually domesticated into a mount for the scouting teams. It was said that the process turned out to very difficult for them, but successful nevertheless. I watched over my pet Eohippus, Waffles, as he met one of the Dilophosaurus with a friendly expression. The beast hissed at him, but was no

Wolfwind trended through the long grass surrounding the camp, holding a strong grip on a blooded hare. Placing his prey upon the fresh kill pile, his golden eyes strayed towards the nursery in a force of habit. A small smile lightened his expression as he noticed lone figure in all her beauty, lying in the faded sunlight. He noticeably walked towards her direction flicking his tail in greeting. "Hey Brighteyes," He said, softly catching the she-cat's attention from her dream dreaming, "mind if I join you?"
Brighteyes looked up in surprise but smiled. "No, I don't mind you joining me Wolfwind."she mewed.

The medical bay was in tatters, tools were either missing or strewed about the place, the furniture was little more than kindling at this point, and all of it was drenched in blood- a lot more than could possibly be in a human body. Most of the lights were flickering, throwing deep shadows across the walls and shrouding the room in darkness. A large message looked like it was carved into the wall: “LET THE GAMES BEGIN.”
Marco crossed his arms and shook his head. “I don’t know, I don’t care, and I sure as hell do not want any part of it.”
Claudius glanced around. “Hey, don’t we have a Medic? Anyone check his room?”

“Yeek!” Tam shouted, her white bangs falling over her eyes as she stubled on the rocking surface. “Ketyan! Don’t blow up the plane!”
“Why not?” The hugely muscled Derrigan asked.
“Because we’re ON the plane!” Tam shouted back.
“Oh. Right.” Ketyan turned his attention back to his enemies just in time for a big PMC Juggernaut with a minigun to force him behind the same crate Tam was clinging to. The fur on Tam’s fluffy tail stood on end as she too dodged behi

Finally, after about two hours of riding, Raine flagged down Sarah and the four came to a stop. Finding a secluded beach, the four moved over and gathered on the beach. They were secluded enough from open water, but not from the sun.

"I think we're at the end of the line. The tides must've changed just enough today."
"What do you mean?" Tiffany took off her life jacket for the moment and tossed it onto the beach.
"It means the dolphins that were stranded yesterday were able to free themselves," Shelly pushed back with her hands and sat down on the beach. "How are we on gas?"

Space Dementia - part 3 It was many miles before I reached a town, and an actual town at that. It wasn't some community with a mere forty houses in the middle of a forest. The buildings were numerous, houses were close together, and there was no forest to block out the sky. That didn't necessarily lighten the mood, though, because the sun was still hiding, drowned out by a sheet of clouds. The town was painted in gray, all of the its structures stuck in a gloomy shadow. There were gas stations, clothes stores, grocery shops, all grayed out. Signs of life were everywhere, ranging from the smashed windows and doors to the pillaged shops. I took two backpacks from a store to carry any belongings I found, but there wasn't very much to find. Some of the convenience stores had been overlooked in favor of the larger establishments, but even those had a good portion of their goods spoiled or stolen.

Dietrich: He sat on the edge of his bed, one amongst several others. He seemed alone, once again. By himself, in spite of the others that regularly came and went or otherwise occupied the room. He tested his hand, moving his digits and flexing his palm within its wrapping. He felt no further irritation. The bandage could come off in the morning and it would be fine. As he sat at the edge of his mattress, his back to the rest of the room, he reached amongst his belongings and withdrew his journal, flipping it open to the front cover while it rested in his lap. There was some writing on the inside of the front cover. He read it over..several times..

A pair of snarling jaws, split open like a snake's and pressing against the glass just opposite where I was leaning my head. I yelped and jumped off of the chair, scrambling back several feet. The creature's teeth were scraping and snapping against the glass, and I knew it wouldn't let up until the window was shattered. I swiped my gun off of the ground, retrieving my final magazine from the counter and slamming it into the gun. The door was a mere wall of splinters that would fall apart if I opened it, so I just kicked down what was left and stepped outside.Space Dementia - part 41 day ago in Short Stories More Like This
