I have developed a cold and so I end up needing to stay home for the day. I’m not too happy about it but then again, I’d rather be here and than at school right now. Ever since Dr. White got fired, everyone has been using me and Lamilia as scapegoats for their cold shoulder since R has been out because of his clavicle. I’m not that close to R but it’s not like he wanted Dr. White to get fired from the school. From what I got from him, he seemed to really like her because she seemed to be genuinely nice to people like him and that Nalak kid. If he had been there to hear of her being let go, he probably would have tried to get her to not be. But that’s neither here nor there and even so, I don’t see why he should be blamed for her being fired. He had just met her and he’s been an Empty since he started high school so it wasn’t like she offended him or something.
Now Nalak? He was the albino so… what if it was him

Topaz recovered very quickly, but was unnaturally silent. Usually she loved fighting and commented about it whenever she could. Obviously she was still in shock from her experience with their supreme Leader. Preparations were made, and Opal briefed the team.
“Listen up. These losers have made the fatal mistake of challenging us on our home turf. I’ve devised a plethora of lovely booby traps for their timely arrival, so we should be well advised of their presence. As our Leader instructed, no mercy is to be given. Use every dirty tactic you can to take them out. Obsidian, unless another option forbids it, stay out of battle and cheap shot other opponents from the shadows.”
“Here are the coordinates of the traps so none of you bumble into them.”
All the helmets beeped as the data was sent.
“Are we clear on our objective?”

While the first part of the plan involved anyone that could be trusted and was not at the station, something they were in very short supply of, the second part depended entirely on who was left behind. It also had a lot to do with the reasons behind Kent choosing his wardrobe. Everyone else wanted to look ferocious and he decided that, for his part, it was best if he looked anything but. After that, it was a matter of sitting around with Bob, drinking coffee, and waiting for the call. It came soon enough and he left in his own vehicle, after anyone, of any consequence, had most likely long since turned their gaze elsewhere.
If anyone was still watching then Kent’s first stop would have certainly seemed harmless enough. He parked at a Foo King Junior and waited till Harvey Keitel arrived and park beside him. His daughter, Idhitri, got out of the back seat and then joined Kent in his car. She had a hand full of papers that she had just retrieved from he

Marcus looked up from a terminal and responded, “Farraday cages embedded into the housings, we duct it all into a cell on the hazmat suits that stores the static for safe discharge later.”
“That strikes me as technology a mining company would value greatly, why do they not use it?”
“The cells are made using silver and they're only good for two or three trips before needing to be scrapped and rebuilt. It's not worth the expense to use it for mining.”

Where magic and nobility rules this world, where they take science as commonplace (Wait… that sounds familiar…). The moon glowed brighter and is nearer to the ground.

Vorg's Reeve Node (the neck-located biomechanical implant which regulated sleep cycles, one of three standard transhuman augmentations used by people of Vorg's era) pulsed into activity shortly before the first dawn, awaking the mighty aspirant that the time for his preparations had come. Stopping first to verify that all other denizens of the compound were asleep or on watch -thus focusing their attention outwards- Vorg slunk gracefully up to the installation's power distribution system's primary terminal. As chief administrator, Vorg had full access to the utility control mechanisms of the installation and the changes he made were well within his discretionary authority but nevertheless, Vorg elected to keep his alterations surreptitious. Stopping briefly to survey the three DIREEDs (destructively intense radiant energy emission device) implemented on the perimeter of the small camp, the primary defences against full assault, Vorg re-entered his imperatorium.

It took Emerald an hour to regain himself and slowly get back to his feet. He was still struggling to comprehend what he should do when the alarm went off. All thoughts of homophobia forgotten, he charged toward the main entrance. Sapphire joined him at a corridor without Onyx. They arrived to see Opal standing near the door. Every so often, it would shake violently, making all three step back.
“What is it, Opal?”
“I don’t know! I thought Pearl and Diamond were taking care of these guys! Did they lose?”
“No way. You can feel their auras from here! They must have missed one!”
Obsidian arrived at the gate, not looking at Emerald. Opal yelled at him.
“Quick! Get out there to see what we’re in for!”
He nodded and was gone. The banging stopped a second later. Obsidian emerged after a couple of seconds, out of breath. The banging resumed.

Amethyst was just tying up Terra when Obsidian emerged from the shadows right next to her. She jumped involuntarily and frowned.
“Don’t do that, kid.”
Amethyst was probably second in line of “want to beat Obsidian to a pulp” right after Emerald. Topaz would probably be first, but she was too terrified of him. Both Amethyst and Emerald found nothing scary in the boy’s arsenal. Just watch the shadows and movements, that was all. So as a result, she condescended him whenever she got the chance. He usually gave some witty remark back, but now he merely stared back. That was her first indication that something was dreadfully wrong.
“What is it?”
“I think…you had better come see this.”
He vanished, traveling along the floor so she could see. She sprinted after it, startling a sleeping Pearl. He had been catching a quick nap just outside the dungeon, but jerked awake.

Amethyst forced a foul medicine down Emerald’s throat as he writhed in pain on the table. She had barricaded the door, but no attack had come so far. Her face was covered with sweat and she was exhausted. Her and Onyx had been trying to heal Emerald’s wound for the past ten minutes, with no luck. Onyx was catching his breath in the corner, ready to step in if the need arose. Whoever the shooter had been, they had done their research. The shot was a high-caliber, poison-coated shot laced with pieces of bone. It would have taken weeks to construct, and was something she was not entirely positive she could dig out. The poison had dissolved into Emerald’s bloodstream and the bone was causing all sorts of problems. They acted almost alive, trying to dig deeper into Emerald’s flesh as she fished the bastards out with her tools. She had pulled out the bullet and noticed with alarm the thing had been rigged to explode. Thankfully, Ambe

Chapter 1: Mercenaries
3 months later…
The mission came in at approximately 14:00 military time. The goal was simple: Assassinate the world’s most fearsome dictator. Amber got the call and negotiated cost. The call came from the US government, so money was not a problem. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong the nine thousandth or so, had well and truly driven his country into the ground. Communism was still the failing choice, and relations between North Korea and the entire world was becoming very strained. Nearly every single country wanted him gone, but the ‘dear leader’s’ mental health made tidy executions very difficult, as the slightest poke would send a nuke at whoever had poked. And so the quick, quiet assassination from the Venenum had been decided upon by the President and approved by the United Nations. North Korea had not attended that meeting, and so it would be a surprise to them.
The entire group filed onto the mass tel

No sooner had Sickle finished speaking then Ruby sprang at him, bolting across the room at breakneck speed. Sickle grinned evilly, teeth pointed like a vampire’s. Right as Ruby plowed into him, his legs shot into the air, and his crossed hands pushed upwards. Vaulting over Ruby, he landed and immediately turned, blackness shooting out of his hand at her unprotected back. As soon as the stuff touched her back, it incinerated instantly. The thing ground to a halt and its head rotated a full 180 degrees to stare at Sickle. Red vapor steamed from its eyes and mouth, and it bared its fangs at him. Sickle in return hissed back and shot four black bullets from his mouth in quick succession. Ruby’s mouth glowed red and fire leaked from the sides. A mere inch before the bullets hit their target, pure white fire erupted forth, disintegrating the arsenal and blasting toward Sickle. Impossibly fast, his lanky legs shot him into the air and the fire shot underneath him,

The next day brought an uncomfortable silence over breakfast. Everyone had heard about the attack and everyone was very tense. If that thing had been any match for Sapphire and Pearl, the new recruits wouldn’t have much of a chance. Diamond knew that all too well, and so he had arranged an intense sparring match after breakfast. There was no better way to awaken one’s power than to force them to their limits. The method was not without risks, but the benefits outweighed the consequences. Two or three of the members had used this method to find their power in a time of crisis a long time ago, but one had lost control and killed another. Pearl hated the risk involved and avoided the tactic, but Diamond had been wanting to try it for a while. Convenience was important to him now. The first up was Cobalt. She was up against Topaz. Topaz was against the tactic too, but she knew what she had to do. Immediately, her armor slammed into position and she bl

And so it begins.
It all starts with a lone figure stealthily racing through a deserted warehouse. In his hands he clutches a small box. Insignificant, really. To all but him. He has worked his whole life to get this item. Too long he has gone being betrayed and deceived. Now, he has finally bypassed the security. Now, he has claimed the weapon that should rightfully be his. Now, no one will stand in his way. As he runs into the main entrance, he stops short. Something is amiss. There is an unfamiliar feel in the air. No, it’s all too familiar. The feeling of failure lies in the air. And feeling the hair on the back of his neck rise, he knows why. He turns to see something out of a nightmare facing him. A figure dressed all in black, save for the pulsing green lines running to its mask. The mask is completely blank, except for two glowing yellow slits for eyes. As intimidating as this is, the real horror protrudes from t

I have never seen a world that has not been drowned by the endless sheets caused by the unending storm that surrounds me. I live in fear. No one seems to mind, but I am not at ease as they are. They have not ever seen the destruction that water can cause... how dangerous it truly is. I am forced to watch, day after day, our flood-proofed home slowly sinking before the ever rising tide and flood waves. We live on the second floor now, but eventually--well I try to push those thoughts from my mind as soon as they rise up to the surface.

Emerald left Obsidian behind, quickly walking down the first restricted corridor he could find. Even assassins needed privacy eventually. These hallways and rooms were off-limits to non-Commanders. Such included a game room, private bath/sauna, and mediation room. Emerald walked down the hall, still thinking furiously about the events that had happened not a minute ago. He seethed even to think of Obsidian’s response and shuddered when he remembered how easily Pearl had crushed him. His power had been rendered to naught in the face of such a god! Now he saw why they were Leaders. He continued onward, not really caring where he went. He just needed some time alone to think, that was all. He stopped outside the storage room; sure he’d heard something. He listened intently and indeed, a faint scuffing was coming from inside, like muffled footsteps. There wasn’t much in that room, just a single window and sparse crates of food. It was really a blank r
