Starcrossed || SeventeenRows of men and women alike were encased behind walls of glass, isolated in their individual cells like discarded dogs. The prison was dark, with cameras every five feet and blue backlights behind every cell. The blue light was supposed to be calming, but the prisoners seemed just as unhappy to be locked away as before the update.Starcrossed || Seventeen7 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The growl of conversation below that conglomerated was silent to a pair of blue eyes that watched over it all from the highest floor. Ambon eyed up select prisoners, reading body language and mouth curses. She could practically see their crimes laid out before her like a stat sheet.
"Secretary?" A deep voice beckoned her attentions elsewhere. Ambon unfolded her hands from behind her back and shook her tangled thoughts from mind. She had a job to do, and she intended to do it correctly. Even though it seemed like she was fighting this battle alone sometimes.
The elevator was here. She boarded alongside her large assistant, inserting a microchip sized glass key

They stepped back, thinking frantically about how they would face this foe. He had every skill and power they possessed, only together did they stand a chance. They nodded, knowing in unison what they were about to do. Everything Takanuva had taught them came flooding back. Charging forward they assailed it from both sides. Just at the last moment, the abomination revealed a second blade.

They were pushed back, unable to overcome the malice and speed of Shadow’s servant. With a swift kick it sent Andrew crashing back first onto the hard floor, his sword flying away with a clang against the stone. Unable to defe

The next day, while the folks in the neighborhood try to figure out how a luggage car arrived in the streets without anyone running it, Kevin is in his room at work. He smiles as he held up T.K. and his once again fixed arm. He found some fluff and managed to stitch the toy's arm as good as new.
"Kevin, come on, hon. Time to go." Mrs. Whitney said as she came in. Seeing T.K., she smiles as she said, "Hey, you fixed T.K.!"
"Yeah. Glad I decided not to take him to camp. His whole arm might have come off." Kevin said laughing. Of course, the boy has no idea how right he almost was.
As Kevin puts his toy on the table and left the room with his mother, the Digidestined toy came out of toy mode and looks at his arm, as good as new...once more. He smiles as he looks at the door his owner exited through. Kevin cares, he really does care!
"Well, what do you know?" T.K. asked softly.

Doppler sat on his cot frowning. It was still an hour before dinner, and it would be the same creamy soup with protein powder mixed in. The restricted diet was cruel to him, and his lawyer tried to have it lifted, but the judge agreed that with his past crimes it was a necessity. The heartbeat monitor on his chest and wrist was another thing added to his sentence. This was to ensure he couldn’t pull the trick of speeding up his heart to fake a cardiac problem.
So wound up in his misery, Doppler didn’t notice at first how chilly his cell had gotten, and how dark it had become. In fact, it felt familiar, as he struggled to lift his head, things so slow and sluggish. Leaning on the wall across from him was a man. Tall and slim wearing a three piece suit and bowler hat, with an umbrella hanging from his wrist.

I huddled under my cape in the stock enclosure's guard niche. Behind me, the llamas, sheep and small cattle huddled together. I kept flexing my grip on my staff lest I cramp.
I'd seen 'Big Puss', one of our barn cats, patrol the field wall's line about an hour earlier. An inky swirl of motion, a bitten off yelp suggested Puss and her weaned kitties would eat well tonight. A minor predator, she was safely gone before any Heavies could arrive.
First up was the wicked wedge of a male Great Fox. His red eyes scanned my field from the wall's stile notch. He focussed on this enclosure. Surely he could not see me, but the wind blew that way.
Great Uncle Tam had taught that foxes were clever, but only took the lame, lambs and carrion. This, though, was a Fall Beast. No calf or young sheep was safe until yearling. And, even then, a Great Fox

Sam's colder disposition scared him a bit, but he could tell she knew what she was doing when it came to fighting for the Light. The Titan hopped off of her sparrow and looked around at the scattered body parts of the Vex.
"He's been through here… Hmmm…"
"Wh-what are these…?" Axel stopped and picked up a head of one of the machines, looking it over a bit shakily.
"Those are the Vex I was telling you about. Tin cans. See that white spot on that one's torso. That's their weak point. Shooting it can cripple and likely kill them. You need to aim carefully. Blowing off their heads only makes them more aggressive. The head you are holding is a Goblin head."

Fireworks burst in the air over the bay, brilliant multicolored stars cascading across the night sky: the air is filled with cheers and singing and music: the long, long war is over, the Karoliners driven back to the dark space from which they came, and across the galaxy billions celebrate the return of peace.
He stands on the beach, looking out over the bay, not knowing what to think, what to feel, wearing a crisp new Federal army uniform; he graduated from the academy today, their passing-out ceremony interrupted by the news, thrown into complete chaos, some cadets ecstatic at the end, others upset that they missed their chance at glory.
He doesn't know what to think. So he stands here on the beach, alone, in silence, on the night when no one is alone, and no one is silent.
A soft tread on the sand behind him makes him turn his head and look to see a tall lady walking toward him. Her skin is black, darker even than the night sky between the shining points of stars, her hair a soft br

Troll had never ridden in a truck before, so the experience was new to him. He sniffed around it, and plugged his noise because of a strong, bad smell. I reassured him that it was just the smell of the gasoline and that there was nothing to worry about with it. While Troll was reluctant, we were eventually able to get him to climb inside, and Caesar drove us away from the town.
I sank in my seat, “…good grief…that was one hell of a stay.”
Caesar chuckled, “Yeah, I know it wasn’t fun…but thankfully we’re back on the road and the only annoyance you have to deal with is me.”
“…still not sure if that was a better alternative,” I muttered, looking at him.
Caesar just smirked with a small chuckle, and kept his eyes out on the road.
