Summer Heat and Superpowers (Chapter five)The next morning Damian found Lestat sleeping in the bathtub with his hair covering his face. Damian shrugged and left the bathroom, softly closing the door as to not wake the young vampire. Damian walked out onto the patio and looked over at Fred, who had a cigarette in his hand. Fred took a long drag and slowly blew it out. "What are you doing up so early?" Damian asked, staring at Fred intently.Summer Heat and Superpowers (Chapter five)2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Nightmares." Fred said numbly. He took another long drag and closed his eyes.
"What does a hot shot bad ass like you have to fear?" Damian half joked, taking a seat in one of the cream colored lawn chairs.
"The end of the world." Fred whispered as he put out his cigarette and went inside. He ran his fingers through his messy hair and his frown deepened as his gaze landed on Jane's frozen body. He walked over to her and knelt beside her. "Come on, I know you can hear me. Did you really mean what you said in my dream? This is it? Jane... Give me a sign." Fred whispered his pleas and almost st

It was a wonder to her that the place wasn't crawling with attack squads like the ones sent to attack at the caves. Then it dawned on her... Who would be coming for Jared anyway? It wasn't like they had kidnapped a high-profile politician. Besides herself and the human fugitives, no one would miss some nobody-technician from Icana.

"Alright. Climb on." Kaye told him in a hushed voice. She sat him carefully on her shoulder, keeping one hand free to cautiously open the north door Sean had prepared for her. Immediately, the sound of industrial air filtration hummed, overpowering the sound of wind blowing outside.

Le réveil sonna dans la petite mais chaleureuse chambre. La jeune rouquine ouvrit difficilement ses yeux gris, légèrement cernés.
Après s’être longuement étirée, elle finit par sortir du lit, et enfila une petite robe de chambre avant de tirer les rideaux. Le soleil pénétra sa chambre, l’obligeant à fermer les yeux quelques secondes.
D’un bâillement, elle se dirigea vers sa salle de bain. Après sa douche, s’être coiffée et habillée, elle ressortit, et prit plusieurs affaires dans sa chambre. Outre une petite sacoche qui semblait contenir ses papiers personnels, elle prit dans ses bras une pile de livres et pochettes.
Sur quelques uns des troncs, on pouvait y lire des titres comme « Guerre des derniers siècles ».

ANOTHER SPECIES DISAPPEARS
In relation to the recent radioactive leak at the power plant in West Laquania, it has been reported that two more dinosaur or insect species have disappeared. We fear that our lives are at stake, as both these eliminated species share one thing in common: 'Perinial Rexodus'. Other than this uncanny similarity, both these creatures are completely opposite.
The first species was known as the Carnatious Grub, a relatively rare creature regarded as a pest by most of us. The invertebrates live underground and are comprised of a thick gelatinous body that resembles that of a common worm, although they have a pair of functioning eyes. The other species was

It was a cold morning when Amilia found herself wandering through the streets. She tried to keep her steps even, but haste caused every third step to be quicker than the others. A horse whinnied, and she tensed as if the animal had set off an alarm. She’d need a horse of her own, and thought of stealing this very one. That’s what thieves do, right? Unfortunately, following two sets of rules is what got her into this mess.
Her feet led her to Daniel’s doorstep without any thought of her own, and now she stared up at the building like it was a sign. That feeling of hope and nervous stirred her stomach like a storm. She glanced back as the sun slowly stretched onto the morning street. Maybe she shouldn’t, but felt no other choice than to knock on Daniel’s door.
The door opened a moment later to a very confused Daniel. “Uh, come in,” he mumbled, and stepped back for her. Amilia paced inside, turned sharply at the e

“no,” Sywyn answered, not looking at him. “Fire spells take the most energy. That is why I had you do it first. I had figured that there was no way you could ever over do it.”
Alex could see the bitter smile on Sywyns face. He fell off the log, only able to keep on his feet by taking a few steps for balance. “are elves born with the ability to use magic? Do you have problems with babies shooting lightning at parents?”
“magic revolves around concentration and energy. Neither of which babies possess,” he muttered. “it is a skill that is taught, not know.”

"Anthony," she faced him, where he sat on the bed, taking off his socks. "I'm going to need a lot of help."
"With what?" he became distracted by her naked body, which, even as it was gaunt rather than athletic as earlier, held this certain appeal to him. He realized how much he really had missed her, when seeing her now.
"With finding myself again. So much is lost, and then I don't talk about flesh and muscles, figures on a scale. I look in your bathroom mirror, seeing a ghost. It's not me, it's someone else. An old lady."

Sasha closed her eyes and took in a series of deep breaths. The air around her couldn't exactly be called 'fresh', but it did serve its main purpose of steeling her nerves for the coming moments. At the end of the soothing act, she slowly began to lift her left leg into the air, raising it until it was almost perpendicular with her torso. The motion lasted no more than a few seconds, and was executed flawlessly.
That is, until a nearby sneeze completely shattered her concentration.
“Please don't—” was all she could get out before her source of balance was suddenly yanked away. The resulting fall onto a soft mat was far more jarring than painful, but it was still enough to force her eyes open the second she hit the ground.
“Oh my god! Are you okay, Sasha?!”
Her vision was blurred at first, but began to clear as an open hand reached towards her. She gave her best attempt at a smile while rubbing at her sore rear. “Eh, don't worry

The nightly day was so lonely. I was well acquainted with it, shadows embracing me with all the affection I could never return. No. I could never return. They were done with me. I'd nothing left but the sting of last hours and the bites of bugs. It was all a stone too heavy to carry. I had no fire, even if I was made of fire. I couldn't hold that fire. I couldn't father that fire and raise it to the ferocious blaze that the infection wanted me to. I was as weak as the weak could get.
I found the strength to roll over and lay on my back once again. I wasn't sure where I dug the strength from, but here I was, peering into the nothing, dotted with shadow leaves and shy shapes, the occasional croak in the distance. It was so dark, a painting of oil, but I knew that the sun still shined. If I could only burn again, I could see the world, change the world, and be like Laza.
