The Choice He'd Made
He stood, walking to the file cabinet along the wall. He pulled out a manila folder and set on the desk that separated me and him. He pulled out a file and started to read it over.
"Aidan Stones," he muttered. "Sixteen years old, perfect grades... born in 2084 to Dr. Melody and Josiah Stones... oh, you're that kid." The way he said it was cold and a little surprised, as if he wasn't expecting me to be "that kid," whatever he meant by that.
He pulled out another file. "Let's see... you took the Placement Exam last year and your results were- huh, almost expected that. Well, they're pairing you with Axel. Go to the lab to begin the TransGen process. When that's complete you're to report directly to Director Ephraim Crane."
I nodded, walking out of the room. I pulled up the map I'd downloaded onto my Implica, a computer-type device that just about everyone uses. Okay, s
Kismet - Chapter 5In his dream, Todd stood in his father’s office, barely tall enough to see over the desk. The room was grand, big and wall to wall with windows overlooking the ocean. He realized it wasn’t a dream, but a memory of their shore-line house Todd had grown up in. Files lay open on his desk, and he boosted himself up onto the cushiony chair with some effort, finally hauling his small body onto it. He sat there content and swinging his legs back and forth mindlessly as children do, until something on his father’s desk caught his eye. His own name. Todd pulled the chair closer to the desk and peeked at the file.Kismet - Chapter 55 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
‘Experiment 00-R101; Todd Thorn Hawtree. Test results: Positive, condition peaked.’ The words swam before his eyes but they were foggy in his brain and soon he could hear his mother calling him for supper, loud and clear. He hopped off the chair, but before he could make it out the door to the dining room, it flew shut with a jarring slam that jolted him r
CHAPTER 5 - EVIL MONDAY I was awoken by the most obnoxious alarm clock of all time. Sure, alarm clocks are always obnoxious, but this one took the cake. The incessant beeping it was blaring could easily be confused for an air raid alert. After a good minute, which felt like an eternity, I slowly got up, turning to the origins of the horrible assault on my ears.CHAPTER 5 - EVIL MONDAY5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I glared at Maddie, who I assumed to be the owner of the alarm clock, "What's the big deal with waking up this early?" My voice quivered, "The morning is evil."
As she put on a bathrobe, Maddie replied, "We have class in a couple of hours." As she picked up her shower bag, she added, "It'd be best to get ready without any rush."
Without saying anything else, Maddie left the room. I looked at my brother and Ozpin, who were to my right, fast asleep in their beds. I began to wonder if Ozpin doesn't brush his hair, as it didn't look much different from the usual fare. Fi
Ultimate F-ZERO: Chapter 88 Two sets of eyes opened up at the sight of Jody Summer and Diamond Becky. Their identities were made clear with the apparent name tags. Surrounding her was some kind of space station. Nearby was a jet fighter that Jody was using. Attached to it was a famous white machine with upgrades. Next to it was the Jewel Luger. Squinting her eyes, she was able to partly see the Hyper Dragon. In the end, she was rescued in the nick of time, from a near-cataclysmic explosion.Ultimate F-ZERO: Chapter 8841 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Are you alright?" said Jody's ever-professional voice.
"I should hope so," the woman said. "I was being chased by something, and all I remember is this masive asteroid. I was racing down on it, trying to escape a ship that would blow it up."
Diamond Becky placed her hand on her red fedora. "An asteroid...?"
Jody quickly pulled Diamond Becky aside. "Listen, we already know Mute City is history. That is a very high possi--"
"No, I mean...there i
Kitsmet - Chapter 3Todd could feel the bile rise in his throat as he looked out at the wreckage before him. Buildings leveled, earth churned completely, fire. Not a single living being stirred in this world, not even the group he was with at the moment. They were all stunned into complete silence. Swallowing hard he blinked away the hot tears that threatened to spill out of his eyes, closing them to the chaos before him.Kitsmet - Chapter 36 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Well shit.” Destrey muttered a curse that broke the silence, before shrugging and walking out in front, taking the first steps onto the cracked remains of the parking lot. His sneakers kicked up loose gravel and dust but he did not stop walking, aside from a brief pause where he turned to look over his shoulder at the huddled teenagers standing open-mouthed in the former malls entrance. “Y’all coming or what? I thought you said we had to stick together so we’d survive.”
A girl behind him with vivid green hair, he remembered she introduced herse
Kismet - Chapter 4There were only about ten stairs that they had to climb before reaching the top floor, where there were four empty bedrooms. They entered what seemed to be the master bedroom and Alexxandria led Marina to the large bed, sitting her down on the soft white sheets. She waited for Mallory to follow with Destrey. They came in, arms full of sheets from the next door that they had torn off. Destrey produced a small paring knife, presumably from the kitchen, and Mallory began to cut through the sheets, ripping them into long strips.Kismet - Chapter 46 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“We’ll do Destrey first. Alexxandria, you’re going to have to hand me the strips as I call for them okay?” She unknotted the filthy bandana that had served as the temporary bandage for the wound on the raven haired boy, and tossed it into a small incinerator in the corner of the bedroom. It made a light ‘piff’ as the flames hungrily engulfed the fabric. She looked back at his face, and Alexxandria could see sticky blood dripping
