Scar TissueI don’t know what I hated more: myself, or the fact that my crying woke him up. It couldn’t be later than two in the morning, I had woken up from another nightmare and I found myself huddled in the same spot I always went to in times like these: the bathtub.Scar Tissue19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a bad habit I got myself into since childhood, but the coldness of the tub gave me a comfort most things couldn’t. I had been good about keeping my pain hidden from the rest of the world, but by night it came crawling back to me in the form of dreams and flashes of guilt.
The tears would come before I could stop them and I always found myself in this tub. He never knew, and I never told him. What was the point? I’m a girl stuck in reverse who can’t seem to let go of yesterday and take in the joys of tomorrow. My whole life was like a damaged tape, repeating itself when it shouldn’t and having a hard time moving forward. I always could repress my sobs, and I wondered if I was louder than I

He was not where he thought he’d be. He was splayed out on his back, his head resting on some kind of cushion. A bleak shade of grime-covered silver ran the length of the ceiling overhead. The smell of crude oils and grease burned his nose. He blinked three times. He was still there.
Part of him expected him to be insane; trading the environment he thought he’d wake up in for some form of illusion. He squinted at the pipes and the wires in the rafters on the ceiling. Thoughts formed and broke apart in his mind; none of it made sense aside from two words, repeated endlessly by an imaginary voice.
Yeah, that seems about right.

The brunet was so glad that he had been rescued by these odd specialist people. His kidnappers (smugglers) hadn't treated him very nicely and almost broken his glass body a lot, so he was happy that he was on his way home. It was kind of scary to be plucked off the planet he had just moved to, right before he got settled in, too! He hoped his partner wasn't too panicked that he was gone, he was so excited to be brought back to them.
His kidnappers were all tied up on the Specialists' ship, and the duo was trying to figure out what to do with them. He was sitting on a seat nearby, bundled up, and buckled up securely as he was taken back to his partner's planet. He would be reunited with the clumsy being once again.
One of his saviors came up to him and asked what species he was.
"I'm a Skloan! The glass species!"
"Oh yeah, the fragile species where there's only twenty left, right? Haha, I wish my species had twenty left. Instead there's just me and my two younger

“Should I file a report?”
“Yes. Immediately. I want a team out there investigating this right now.”
“Yes, Mr. Anora, sir. I'll collect a scouting party right away.”
“You'll never believe what we found down there, sir.”
“What is it?”
“What should be done with this information, sir?”
“I want the appropriate parties informed immediately. We can't simply let this go untouched. Tell Reath and Flick to prepare a train immediately.”

The year was 2020. Fifteen years before, portals started appearing across all regions of the globe. From these portals emerged creatures we've never seen before. According to legends, these reptilian creatures are called Dragons. The Dragons that came through the portals were set to the regions of the world. The large winged quadruped Dragons of Europe, Russia, America, Oceania, and Africa. And the serpent Dragons of the Asian countries.
But, the Dragons weren't the only creatures to come through the portals. Humanoid Dragons with the ability to speak in human languages also came through the portals along with the Dragons. They called themselves Dragoons and they were the same size of normal humans, unlike their Dragon counterparts.
One more thing that the Dragoons brought with them are the Spirit Stones. The Spirit Stones are powerful crystals that came through the portals with the Dragons and Dragoons. They temporarily grant the user incredible strength,

"Well done, Captain. You may be little more than a kit, but you've got talent." Admiral Plitdown had called me to the bridge. "You have saved us, at least from the threat of starving..."
"Really, it was a complete accident. Cat did most of the work." I started.
"Of course, but after all, who tamed the beast that did the job?" He slapped me on the back.
"She's not a beast." I stiffly brushed him off. "With all due respect."
"You may treat her however you wish." He got the hint. At least she'd been upgraded from object to animal in his mind. That was a start. Still, it was galling. Cat more of a person to me than the Admiral was.

Montana and Indiana decided against waking anyone up that night, and somehow passed their anxiety into an early morning.
Indiana held Name's hand as Name maintained a calm but slightly nervous expression.
Montana had gone to check on Minnesota and Carolina.
Just be okay, please!
Name carefully touched his neck wound, which Indiana had wrapped with gauze and medical tape.
He closed his eyes and ran diagnostics, fearing the worst.
Diagnostics unavailable due to system damage
"Who did this to you?"
Name shook his head.
"Send me a text message"
Name decided to lie.
I don't know who it was
"I can't believe this. Name. I'm so sorry . . . so sorry . . ."
Name could tell. Indiana saw himself as partially responsible.
I'm not in any pain. I'm not like you
"Ah, Name. That doesn't matter. You're my friend. Maybe more than that. Yes, definitely. I do love you"
Despite everything, Name did too.
The beginning and the end. (Part 1)I miss it, all of it. The power, the strength, the will to keep everything in check. I don't understand why it had to be like this, why something destructive like that can happen to my world. I hear nothing but cries, and shouts of pain. I see children trying to find their parents but to no avail. Is this really what the world was meant to be like when they left? When he left? I want to know why, why everything that is corrupt and broken being given to me like this. I need to remember when did this happen or how could it have happened.

Heroes Among the Stars
Well hello there, you may not know me, but believe me when I say by the end of this story you will. You see I may look like you average, overweight college student who suffers from asthma and mild self-esteem issues, but that was only up until last year. You see a little over a year ago something happened that changed me and my friends forever, though I would sum it up right here and there I thought it would be best if you took a look at our very first adventure. But as much I would love to tell you the entire thing I think it would be best if my good old buddy, the narrator, took a seat and explained it all to you. Hit it up!
It began on an average day just like any other; the sun was out and the sounds of passing cars filled the air as young Richard pulled into the parking lot of his local community college. With most of his hours already filled up, and his last year approaching he knew that if he was serious about making in the real worl

Back in the backyard, the toys are still celebrating their victory. T.K. smiles at what is a great day in history for toys everywhere.
"Nice work, fellas. Good job. Coming out of the ground... what a touch! That was a stroke of genius." T.K. exclaimed happily.
"T.K." T.K. turns and sees Aaron still on the launch pad. As T.K. approaches, Aaron smiles and holds his hand out to him. "Thanks."
T.K. grins back and shakes Aaron's hand. It's official. The two are friends now. Just then a van horn next door caught their attention. They heard a familiar voice speaking.
"Everybody say, "Bye, House!"" Kevin’s mom said next door.
"Bye house." Kevin said sadly. He sounded depressed and leaving his house isn't the only reason why he's like that.
The toys turn and see the family is about to get into the van and leave for their new home.
"T.K.! The van!" Aaron exclaimed alarmed. The toys knew that this is the last chance for destiny.

Avant d'aller plus loin dans ma propre présentation je pense que je dois d'abord présenter l'origine de mon récit. Cela remonte à 2 ans, à quelque mois près. L'humanité vivait dans sa plus grande bétise : le refus de voir.
Voir quoi ? Le mal qu'elle causait à la terre. L'homme ne cessait de vivre dans un style de vie connu sous le nom de société de consommation, et ce, depuis les fameuses années cinquante. 100 ans... la terre avait supporté cela pendant un siècle entier, avant qu'ils n'arrivent. En 2050 un scientifique avait dit : "la terre est maintenant tellement affaiblie par nos actes, que même s

She was almost asleep, but something was bothering her. She didn't know what, but something was... off. She turned again and closed her eyes, sighing as peace continued to evade her.
Scrape, shuffle, whisper.
Her eyes snapped open again. She held her breath. Sure enough, the whispers started again. Too feint, too far away to make out.
She cautiously shifted, moving to where she could scramble out if need be.
“Trust me, she comes 'ere regular.”
Budge. There were two other shadows with him, moving through the dark to her little corner.
“That's what you said at the last-”
“Shh! There, in'at hole.”
