Conocer el miedoShems: No sé cómo fue que me encontré en ese lugar... aún para mí es difícil dar cuenta de un comienzo.... sólo sé que mi primer resquicio de consciencia se remonta poco minutos antes de ver, en ese extraño y vacío lugar en el que me encontraba, a la bruja; quien anticipándose a cualquier cosa que fuera a hacer me suplicó susurrante, con lágrimas en los ojos: "Quieto, por favor". Verla asustada ha sido una de las pocas cosas que en mi existencia me han sorprendido, y eso es mucho considerando que he vivido desde hace tantos años que ya ni recuerdo si alguna vez "nací". Pero bueno.... varias cosas ya me tenían confundido en el momento que la escuché dirigirse a mí, y su miedo era casi lo mínimo.Conocer el miedo1 day ago in Short Stories More Like This

"You're nothing to us, kid. We don't need your kind around."
Black eyes and scars that come hidden by a mask made in art class and long sleeve shirts.
A mother proud that her son loves to be who he is... Unknowing.
A mother with tears that heavily stream down her cheeks at the sight.
"Not because who I am, no acceptance." were the words carved into the chest of her son.
A bloody knife lays below the boy's feet, a few inches off the ground.
A few inches held up by a rope.
His mother just in time to watch a last breath, a tear, and a partial smile.

Nix's house was large, cozy, and well lit. To me, it was like a cottage you'd see in the country side, only nicer. A woman with black long hair and large blue eyes, her skin was fairly clean. She had a scar under her right eye and on the bridge of her nose when Project X tried to kill her. She was wearing a long black dress with black high heels; she also has a back gem for a necklace. "Good to see you, Fang." Nix said, “You too master." I said with a smile as she wrapped her arms around me and pulled me into a hug. "Fang...reason we're here?" Dark said Nix looked at me and then at Dark. "And who are they?" She asked in a hiss. "These are two of the rebel group." I said waving my hands at Light and Dark. "If your friends of Fang then you are welcomed here." she smiled and went to give Light and Dark a hug. I held up my hand and got between Nix and Light. "Nix we don't have time. Is she here?" i asked and looked around. ''Yes, your plan worked. But I'm worried about

He was much father now from his original spot under the small tree and it seemed like an unnecessary distance he was making between them. He thought from where he was standing before was safe enough, but the counselor continued to follow along as the King instructed, slipping deeper and deeper into the forest.
“Keep moving Em. Keep on moving.”
“I think that’s quite far another King,” Kygron said looking down to him. He knew he was big, and the King wanted his friend to be safe, but this was ridiculous. Even he was starting to have trouble seeing the small human down below from such a great distance. Ignoring him, King Joerrim kept gesturing from above.
“More…more…good…yes…ye-STOP! Alright Emson, that’s perfect!”

Hiccup sat up in bed, rubbing his eyes and grimacing. He lightly pushed Jack's shoulder.
" Jack....Jack something's going on downstairs."
Jack nodded, getting to his feet and walking to the doorway, pausing at a particularly loud yell.
" You DRUGGED me?!"
" You deliberatly disobeyed me!"
" You knew i had to go, someone had to, and YOU were too scared!!"
" I would have gone for you, and you know that!! I'M the boss of YOU, NOT the other way around!!"
" BOSS of me?! What happened to TEAM?! To WE, to US?! Not YOU!"
" WE DIDN'T HAVE TO TAKE YOU IN! WE COULD HAVE LEFT YOU TO DIE OUT THERE!!"
Midnight blinked back tears, briefly stunned. Her fist twitched, wanting to strike Shadow.

The alarm clock screeched to life right beside Jimmy's ear, causing him to jerk awake and groan before slamming his hand into the top of the device, something so habitual he could do it with his eyes closed. He groggily hoisted his legs around and sat on the edge of his soft bed, dragging the warm fleece blankets about him like a cloak in the chilled air. "Just another stupid day…" he mumbled as he lurched forward off the bed and started to stumble towards his door in the early-morning dark.
It wasn't just another stupid day for Jimmy though, he knew it already. His five foot nine frame felt weighed down, heavier. He felt more uncomfortable with each step he took, not being able to exactly place why, sleep still clogging his brain.
As he slowly made his way towards the bathroom at the end of the hall, guided over the old carpet floor by the pre-dawn light, he began to really wake up. He rubbed his eyes, picked an unu

Ahh, the fresh air, I really love this place.
I hope I can stay here for a bit longer, but,I have to do something, damn that woman!
"Miss?" the butler called. "Breakfast is served. And Madame is waiting for you in her room."
"Sure thing, tell her I'll be there, I'll just take a shower. Thanks." I said.
"Yes Miss." I heard a door close gently, and a cane clicking softly against the marble floor. Mr. Wilkins is really old, his 73rd birthday is near, and he's too old to be the butler. Since my father died 10 years ago, he said he didn't want to leave this household. Says he'll serve us till his dying day.
Now, that's not really necessary. He deserved rest, and he's been serving the Cezanne family for TOO long.
I sighed. I really don't want to go to that woman's room. I want to go outside.
I showered. Got dressed. Formal wear is a must, tsk, damn that woman, even the garments! I hate this!
Wearing a long, red silk dress, I went to that woman's room. I knocked at her door,
An interesting proposalThe snow fell as big fat flakes, in blankets from the sky. An eerie orange glow filled the dead of night so bright, that one could walk anywhere and see perfectly fine. The bitter cold was biting its way past his thick winter jacket, as the last breath of fall disappeared like a sigh in the darkness. The crunching noise of the snow beneath his boots snapped his mind back into reality. The sounds of the city echoing in the distance gave him pause; he’d forgotten how quiet this neighborhood was. Damn, he cursed himself silently. It had been weeks since he'd last seen one of them out in the open. Their pale skin and preternatural aura still burning sharply in his mind, and the last glimmer of hope of joining their coven was slowly crumbling right before his very soul. Immortality, that was the goal, at least it was in the beginning. The allure of the night and the thrill of the hunt were what he craved now. He scoffed at the cold.

“My dear little one,” Thor said with a swish of his tail in greeting. “I missed you. You were gone for a while and I was getting worried. Is everything well?”
Selena did not respond, but rather ran up to him and wrapped her arms around the base of his neck. “We at least get to stay together for a little while longer,” she breathed out.
“That is wonderful to hear,” Thor replied.
The Empress walked up from behind and placed a hand on her shoulder.
“My child,” she whispered. “Vidar Helios means well. He is just doing what he thinks is right for the Empire.”
17th Century Privateer Romance ExcerptTshomba hugged onto her ironwood staff as she brushed her way through the forest. Perspiration sparkled all over her deep brown skin while dew from the foliage dripped onto her multicolored gown. The tropical mixture of searing heat and steamy humidity somehow felt more oppressive here than any of the breezy Caribbean islands she had visited recently. Its potency more closely matched Tshomba's native Kongo on the Atlantic's opposite shore. That should have brought back homesick memories, and yet it was a nervous dread that iced her veins inside and made her staff wobble in her hold.17th Century Privateer Romance Excerpt2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Part of that she could blame on the Spaniards. They may have targeted the Englishman James Swann rather than her, but Tshomba would share his guilt so long as she gave him her magic, her body, and her heart. Only Nzambi Mpungu himself, in all his Creator's wisdom, knew what blood-drenched tortures Don Gallego had planned for his human prey.

The black doe wandered through the forest as she gathered herbs. She had an interested party that wanted a potion that would improve his stamina for the breeding season. He was a young Blackwood which she had thought to avoid his trade when he had offered an exquisite Ice bear pelt. She had debated before deciding more pelts to keep her warm for the winter months would not be a bad idea. She had also briefly thought of giving him something he thought would improve his stamina but wouldn’t when she decided to give the young inexperienced buck what he wanted. She shook her head as she remembered how at first he had tried to flirt the potion from her but with a forceful blast from some nearby ice cold water, he had intelligently dropped his would be wooing.

It was only Shadow.
She opened the cupboard, and with a mutter of 'why doesn't anyone clean up around here?!' had begun picking up the numerous cups that had fallen and caused the disturbance.
" Sorry, Jack. Scribbles forgot she was making tea, so i gotta take care of it. Midnight, her, and me were all talking but then Midnight tried to leave again for the night shift and i got upset and ugh....too much stress for one night. I hope you're having a better time."
She ran a hand loosely through her hair, the worry evident in her face.
" What were you talking about?" Jack asked her, knowing it must have been important to be discussed so late at night.

" Then what would you like to do instead?~" The angel breathed, already knowing the answer.
" Maybe....some of this...~" Jack said quietly, leaving loving kisses along Hiccup's jawline. When his angel shivered, the old spirit coursed through his veins. He left a few lovebites down Hiccup's neck, grazing against the soft skin of his shoulders. He went from a snuggling posistion to hovering above Hiccup.
