“Filho da mãe, Doc! You never listen to me!”
Tina pumped her legs with a fury only enemy gunfire could inspire.
Bullets cracked supersonic as they zipped past her ear, impacting the hardened earth in geysers of red dirt and debris. Her heart rate was pegged, her breath pounding as glands pumped adrenaline and nanites to her burning muscles and overtaxed lungs.
“Hey, speak English,” Doc’s voice crackled through the comm within her ear. “You and that Brazilian crap.”
Tina ran zig-zag through a maze of mud and grass thatched huts that served as barracks for the encampment and then rounded the corner of a small concrete building th
Feroz, and the arkWe went to the worker's quarters below deck, and grabbed all the tools we need. We sealed every window and door, and brought all food rations below deck.

It didn't happen suddenly. In fact, we expected it. The Earth was destroyed, and the once luxurious cruise ship was now a lackluster and nonfunctioning spaceship. We drifted aimlessly, with no way of steering without gravity or some liquid surface on which to rest the rudder.
We agreed not to breed, so we could save the limited food we had. Of course, this would change if we hit some sort of habitable world, but this was so astronomically unlikely that we didn't even like to consider the possibility. We certainly didn't tell the children that this ship could be anything other than their tomb.
A meteor punched a hole in the fiesta deck a long time ago. We sealed all doorways to that area, but 47 strong men were sucked out into the cold space, an

“Are you sure I’m allowed to be in here, Pai?”
At her question, Synthia’s short friend stopped his passage down the main hall of the building’s ground floor and glanced over his shoulder, peering at her as if only remembering then that she was there. He spun on the heel of a faded sneaker and tilted his head to one side, his fluffy fringe of feathers parting to reveal his dark eyes shining with a strangely chipper energy. He placed his partly-folded wings on his hips and clicked his beak good-naturedly.
“Of course you are!” he exclaimed, puffing out his chest a bit, “I study here and we’re always allowed to have visitors if we work overtime on weekends!”
Pai’s statement did little to settle Synthia’s growing sense of unease as they paused briefly in the hall, surrounded on all sides by scholars making their way purposefully to various other de

The dancers - the oldest of which was twenty-one, and the youngest fifteen - froze behind the curtain upon having heard the sounds of organ, which were forming a tune. It was creepy, otherworldly, and hypnotizing: the girls didn't leave until the final accord died. The sounds reached from somewhere above. As in every theater, legends and stories were lurking among everybody connected with this place, but here there was new food for thoughts.
Some weeks ago two new members joined the motley of those connected with Paris Opera theater: a new singer named Victoria and her friend Jamie, who replaced the groom who had broken his leg. To be honest, they both were most pleasant people, who did their best in what they were doing. But not only that.
"I told you black cats are bad luck", the youngest dancer whispered. "That beast called for phantoms".
As if in approval, another melody began

You could say I've got quite addicted to working out, I decided as I'm not the tallest guy around (5'4) I might as well work on being wider rather than taller. I've improved my physic I guess, but I'm not happy with I my body yet. I heard of a new revolutionary surgery on the Internet that is supposed to expand muscle and strength, I decided I wasn't getting anywhere, so I just signed up, no more thinking, I just did it.
A week later and I'm currently lying in a surgery bed waiting for the doctor to come back in. A few minutes past and the huge doctor came back, he made me look like a tiny kid to him, well I guess I want any bigger than a kid, even my 14 year old brother was 6'3! This gu
The Harvesters, Part 6The bright hallway outside the holding room was startlingly empty. I closed the door and considered the four men and women gathered around. Fedder agreed to come along, after some convincing. The first to be taken, it made since that he would know the most about the ship and Ussi'arthu behavior. He even seemed to expect me to go there. He said he only saw three Ussi'arthu during his capture, just like me. Same with everyone else who was brought in awake. Something told me there were more, though. It was a huge ship.The Harvesters, Part 619 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Nitzan refused to stop fighting, despite her elbow beginning to resemble a purple grapefruit. She even tried to bear the heavy Ussi'arthu spear, but found it too difficult with one working arm. After much swearing in Hebrew, she handed it over to Fedder, who carried it like it would jump out and bite him. Ayush and Jacinto looked terrified, but they held their own.
Adjusting my grip on the strangely familiar pistol, I eased the door open. I looked back and nodded before pro

These were five words that Doctor Arnold Spoons had never heard himself say and hoped he'd never hear them again. 'I have a doctorate in medical science,' he thought to himself, 'surely I should be able to find a simple diagnosis!'
But, unfortunately for Doctor Arnold Spoons, he had no idea that Deanna's diagnosis had bother to do with the words medical or science. No one in Yoglabs would really have an opportunity to know that. Or, so everyone thought.
Andy sighed. "I'm sure she'll be fine once she wakes up..."
Deanna had been fast asleep all night, now in one of the beds in the Yoglabs Sickbay. Clancy and Vern had both woken up within an hour of the fight with mild headaches, but nothing wrong with them. They didn't really talk to each other at all, or even look at each other.
Andy had told them what happened, but all anyone could deduce was that she had certainly done something

Cougar Hunt As the afternoon progressed, and the igloos were built without too much trouble, Reykja caught a scent that wasn't too common closer to home. Cougar. The big cats were always a formidable opponent, and he had only gone up against them a couple times before, but this time was different. This time the cat was watching the people that his Kyra had brought here. People he was tasked with protecting. Seeing the tawny shape slinking around behind one of the snow block structures, he let loose an earth shattering snarl, showing all his fangs and sending the ball of claws and fur back to the shadows. The TCA researchers instantly edged further away from the obviously angry tokota, calling for Kyra. The werewolf came walking up in her human form, took one whiff of the breeze and echoed her greying tawny dun tokota's snarl. Her eyes lightened as she looked around for the big cat.Cougar Hunt20 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The Father pondered these lines as he prepared for bed. He sat there in his worn, red leather chair in the dim light of the room. The walls were decorated with pictures of the great Siantas who came before him. In the center were the pictures of Efferine Pestol, Ginoan Fletcher, and Hekarin Duoman, also known as the three heralds of the new age. His mind was focused on his sermon for tomorrow’s holy day. The Irolia, he thought, what a magnificent idea. His mechanical left eye began sorting through his files to find more information about The Irolia. There were thousands of pages dedicated to the glory of this prize and endless tales of its power. Eventually he found his desired passage.

“I know where we are and we’re going North, I installed this GPS in the Jeep last night while everyone was asleep,” Aurora answered, keeping her eyes on the path ahead of the Jeep.
“How will we know when we’ve found a bunker?” He continued leaning his head against the back of the seat.
“Look for soldiers; they’ll be guarding the place,”
They came to an area scattered with jagged rocks and trees bare of leaves.
Aurora slowed the Jeep as they approached, her eyes scanning for any signs of life.

There was no ground beneath him when he appeared.
It was a short fall to the ground below. He rolled over off the side of the hill, rolling all the way down the snowy slope until he smacked into a snowbank.
Disoriented and confused, all he could see was the world spinning above him. Loud sounds of screaming and futuristic laser sounds that he'd heard from the movies wailed in the distance.
When the disorientation finally began to subside, the young boy pulled himself to his feet, the world still dizzying him. He was near the bottom of the snowy slope, located behind a relatively high snowbank. Peaking up and over the snowbank revealed a large field with mayhem and chaos in every compass direction except where he crashed down from.
Large winged creatures that were long, like serpents, were flying through the air,

L'Yrrahy wirkte darob erbost. „Das, habe ich aber nicht gesagt...“ meinte sie irgendwann, während sich die Härchen auf ihrer Nase nach allen Seiten sträubten.
Maoui hatte inzwischen aufgehört zu lachen und schnappte nur noch nach Luft. „Wäre aber eine logische Schlussfolgerung.“ Meinte sie dabei kurz gebunden.

The man sat in his chair, looking over his desk at a wooden and metal cog and gear covered door.
The man's name was the Treckor, the Boss of a secret organization that was designed to defeat and destroy the Vampire clan, known simply as The Masquerade.
As Treckor stared down the door, he leaned back in his chair, adjusting his black top hat and collar of his navy blue vest.
His eyes never left the door, waiting for the arrival of one of the many that worked under him, with files on people for hire.
He couldn't wait much longer, the more time lost searching for people to help destroy the masquerade, the more chaos the vampire horde could cause across the floating city of Albion.
Treckor grew ever so anxious, unknown to him a dark evil lurked in the shadows watching the mans every move.
The evil couldn't help but have the urge to kill the man where he sat, but it

“I’m not clear on what you hope to accomplish destroying the factory,” Kiyoteru stated drily, pushing up his glasses.
“Are you kidding? Tell me it won’t be fun to see the place go up in flames!” Meiko retorted, her eyes burning like twin fires themselves.
“So, acting as vandals? That’s it?” Kiyoteru turned to Gakupo and Luka with no hint of a smile in his expression.
“Actually, we hope to deter the humans from making any more third-wave synthetics,” Gakupo replied mildly.
“You do realize the facility can easily be rebuilt? And that the documentation regarding our construction is most likely kept in cloud storage?” Kiyoteru pointed out.
“We know. It’s not a question of making them incapable of using the technology. After all, many of the smaller parts of our bodies must be manufactured elsewhere.” Luka played with a strand of pink hair, a sly smile on her f

The philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, paleontologists, geologists, and etc were there, but something was missing. No mathematics, grammar, or history? Science was there, although not chemistry or physics, but the other scholastic subjects seemed excluded, as well as arts and athletics. It was enough to arouse considerable suspicion, and sweat dripped from nervous men who stood as the smartest in their various fields.The Permian Artifact1 hour ago in Short Stories More Like This
