Chapter 7: The Family Portrait
The morning afterwards felt like a cinderblock had been dropped on top of me. I woke up with a powerful headache and an upset stomach; it was odd, but not impossible to solve. I soon chocked it up to be the afterglow of Cody’s and my “yelling competition” last night. Cody had recently become the bane of my existence because of his biased opinion towards me and my appearance. I had proved to him that I could be dangerous, and he’d most likely never let me live it down.
“Ugh…turn of the alarm…it’s too early.” I turned to see Emerald, waking up before I shook my head.
“Dude, there’s no alarm.”
“Then why is my head ringing?!” he asked. I scratched my head before remembering that our minds were interconnected. It was most likely that my headache had resounded off of his mind. However, I merely shrugged and outstretched my arm and allowed him to
Abnormal Research: page 17“Scarlett!!” Jin yelled from a distance followed by a series of snapping twigs and branches. Scarlett looked up from the small river path they’d been walking, also where she decided to take a break from walking. They had been only walking for a week but to Scarlett it felt like months, the unmerciful sudden heat wave didn’t make things any better. It seemed even with the density of the forest that gave the luxury of shade couldn’t give relief. When seeing the nearby stream she had the thought of cooling off a bit with a break but it looked as though Jin was determined to run her into the ground with his nonstop travel schedule. She thought she would be able to handle it but he was relentless and with the wave of burning wind she was beginning to get on edge. She couldn’t take his constant rushing anymore. Jin came toward her through a thick bushel of bushes, it was obvious that the heat was affecting him too.

Starcrossed || Forty-FourSo many things happened at once. Elise almost worried that she had said too much and angered him. But then, he was holding her close and crying, his voice rumbling around her in an apology that Elise could easily tell was genuine. So she wept with him.Starcrossed || Forty-Four1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Held before him again, Elise already noticed a difference. Just minutes ago, he had been unsure and a little bit clumsy handling her, not to mention the alarming roughness when he squashed her in the same hand as Sean. But now, Jared held her delicately, as if she might be made of crystal. She barely registered his tearful warning.
More tears flowed freely, but they were perforated with soft laughter. Her relief was almost tangible. Elise leaned her face into his contact, relishing the simple feeling of his giant fingerprints on her cheek. "Oh my God," she whispered. "I thought you might be gone for good." She looked over his face, her eyes drinking in his appearance like it was water in the desert.

“Are you sure this is a good idea, Twi…? I mean, it’s not even the right color…” the young dragon said quietly.
“Oh it’s nothing to worry about, Spike.” she replied, using her magic to carefully levitate the crystal into the testing chamber with a small mouse, “Besides, this strain is a rare form that we’ve only seen in Changeling territory; it might hold the key to what I’m working on.”
“You still haven’t told me more than ‘it will change the world, Spike’ and ‘it will benefit all of Equestria, Spike’.” he deadpanned.
“That’s because you don’t need to know everything about this project yet.

Era la terza volta che Carla provava a chiamare Lucas sul numero provvisorio che gli aveva dato, ma la chiamata risultava sempre occupata. Sospirò e provò ad aspettare un po', mentre Kimberly si era persa a fissare il finestrino appannato dell'automobile, rimanendo stretta nelle braccia per cercare di respingere il gelo che voleva entrarle fin nelle ossa.
«Oh, andiamo...» mormorò senza alcuna voglia di aspettare. Finalmente il cellulare iniziò a squillare, e la sua espressione si accese. Aprì la chiamata e mantenne fermo l'auricolare con l'altra mano.
Lucas, che stava rincasando frettolosamente, manteneva un tono di voce moderato.
«Carla, state bene?! Non riuscivo a chiamarti, ed iniziavo ad essere preoccupato...»
«Oh, è solo che stavamo chiamandoci contemporaneamente, ecco perché la chiamata non entrava. Dove sei?»

Hermiosa's relatively small city centre made it easy to navigate. It consisted of two basic districts, Westshore Town and Eastshore Town, two faubourgs which like yin'n'yan faced each other across the Spring Bay, the northernmost part of Great Salt Lake. As a general rule, Westshore Town embodied "Old Hermiosa", with the century old mansions and the wild grown souk area just north of the main harbour whilst Eastshore Town represented "New Hermiosa." This was characterized by the stark contrast of the modern and historical architecture that lied on either side of the lake. Fifteen years ago, Eastshore Town had been nothing but farmland, but in just five years this New Area had been transformed from sleepy rurals, to a booming financial and trade zone.
It was here Florencia Lambert had her largest base of support, so naturally it was here she preferred to show off, just like today, with a speech, before the formal opening of this new bridge. So now Anthony, Cole, Drake, Liberty, May Melo

“I’m fine…” I mumble, finding a way to stand up.
I get up and look at Nalak, who is staring at me with concern. I frown.
“How did you get up there?”
“I… climbed the tree…” he says, pointing. “Can I come in?”
I am about to say yes when something in my head stops me. I feel like it would be a very bad idea to let him in here.
“No?” he asks, surprised. “I thought we were friends.”
“We are… but…”
Nalak stares at me for a long moment. Lightning flashes and I catch his too blue eyes glowing in the electrical light.
“Why?” he asks a little more stern than before.
“Because. You just can’t. I can’t let you in.”

“Yeah, I did…”

Alien Wars: The First Strike (CHAPTER 4)You took Emily to the viewport, where there was an outstanding view of the planet’s rotation, where you could see the continents burning. “It’s beautiful”, she said. “I bet you’ve never seen Earth like this”, you said as you sat her down. “I guess being an alien has its benefits” she said as she gazed at the planet. “The burning continents are annoying though”, she said.Alien Wars: The First Strike (CHAPTER 4)6 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Episode ONE: Specter
Here I was, back at this shitty place. Ridge Hospital. Irreparable. I could barely lift my head to the place it was so damn big. It didn't treat me too well the last time I was here. Now, I couldn't even raise my arms anymore. I had bodyguards to do that for me. I couldn't express how much I hated the idea of a bodyguard, but Laza was changing this world faster than I could keep my eyes on him, wherever he was. He made me need bodyguards. I wanted to hate him for it, but even he told me that the potential inside of my own being was nearly unlimited. Maybe I was just impatient for power. Instant gratification. That didn't look good on a resume. It didn't feel good to admit. Cruce would have had some things to say about it, the little prick... abandoning us...
My nose twitched. That chemical-daisy smell occupied the space between me and the entrance. I sighed it back out. The broken gla

The wild dragon cruised along the bottom of the bay, watching and waiting. Then something grabbed his attention. A school of fish! A big one!

Baydrake saw a very BIG fish right in the middle of the school. That was the one he was gonna go for. He got into position, braced his back feet on the bottom, and took deadly aim. Then, he kicked off, jaws gaping. His mouth engulfed the entire school of fish before snapping shut and

"Where am I?" Nathan murmured, unable to open his eyes for some reason.
"Norfolk, we took control of your engine plant and sailed you here." Chandler replied.

"What's the damage, captain?" Nathan asked.

Two Fish Out of Water: Prologue (DSOCT Round 1)I found myself staring out from the caves at the end of the day. Behind me I could hear the ruckus of the group of violent sociopaths that I was sharing shelter with.

My stomach let out a low rumble. Speaking of hungry… I grimaced. I had been close to training my stomach to give up on getting a meal. (Before I had gotten a cracker at best, an IV drip full of “nutrients” at worst.) That had stopped when I had passed a room and had been nearly knocked off my feet by the smell of food. It had been intoxicating, and as I walked trance-lie into the room I was relieved to find it devoid of people. Pots bubbled, ovens smoked and steamed, and the smell of cooked food hung in the air like fog. I wondered if I had died and gone to heaven. Unfortunately, I had been forced to flee as I

"Workaholic." She said as I finished.
"Not a workaholic, just don't want any homework." I stated as I powered down my computer.

“–but a time shall come when the pathway between our new world and the holy Origin must again reopen. When our colony lies in dire need of our ancestors, the Caelum Lex shall be broken and the deliverance of our people shall be gifted.”
Corra propped her head in her hand as, from her raised dais in the center of the room, she watched the woman read from the crusty old book and gesture dramatically to her audience. All around the walls of the little chapel, the rest of the Gatekeepers (or whatever this bizarre little cult called itself) nodded along in solidarity. As they had with every other other time this passage had been read aloud over the past few days. Which was a lot.
Knowing that bursting into the unassuming building that housed the Gatekeepers’ religious center would end in her becoming their ‘honored guest’ or rather, well-treated prisoner, to listen to recitations of their scripture for days on end would not have stopped her from doing it
Phoenix Reborn CH 7Inside the purple tent are ten collapsible beds sitting on top of many different carpets of various colors, lengths, and sizes. Next to each bed is a fold-up table with a very large candle on it and a few personal effects here and there and at the end of each bed is a trunk. Littered around the room are very large plush pillows that look very comfy indeed thinks the girl. Lounging on one of these pillows is the only other person in the room, a woman maybe a couple seasons older than the girl. She stands up immediately upon seeing Drowell and waltzes over to them with a smile. “Master,” she says as she takes a slight bow. The girl is taken aback by this woman’s beauty. She had heard rumors about the women in Drowell’s harem, but the person in front of her is stunning. She has flawless mocha skin, raven black hair that waves naturally down her curvaceous figure, and dark ebony eyes.

La première concerne le plus grand nombre d’êtres humains, ils sont incompétents, faibles et par-dessus tout, trop émotifs.
La deuxième catégorie quant à elle, touche une minorité. Ils sont appelés « Alpha » est sont bien au-dessus des autres humains.
Que ce soit physique, ou intellectuel, ils dépassent les humains. Les Alpha ont guidés l’humain vers le progrès. Des grands écrivains aux conquérants, ceux sont les personnages principaux de l’histoire.

"Has the power grid been stabilized?" A young man in his thirties asked as he left the corridor and entered the Control Room. He walked over to a long console with a series of glowing buttons, dials, levers, and monitors. Several people sat at the controls, ready to activate the machine at a moments' notice.
The young man had slicked-back dark brown hair and dark blue eyes. He wore his work clothes; black ankle-length pants, brown shoes, a gray shirt, and a large white lab coat with numerous pockets. Around his neck dangled an ID, a key-pass, and an authorization tag signed by the government. His ID read, 'Dr. Max Eules, creator and founder of the R.D.H.A.'

With its usual audio score of bustling traffic and human dialogue containing multiple languages, it was a normal day in Apollo City. Surrounding the largest park in the capital city of Aurora was a testament to 24th century human ingenuity. Buildings dozens of stories tall surrounded the park only to be overshadowed by the Apollo Space Elevator in the distance. Within the park itself were acres upon acres of greenery and concrete mixed together. School had just ended for many and children took advantage of this by begging their parents to take them to the green wonderland. A
