“No idea,” Blossom said as they brought Bobbi into the camp, “take her and we’ll have a look.”
“Hi Nats,” Bobbi said as she was brought over to the tree, and then sat down before her ankles were secured, “relaxing?”
Natalie shrugged her shoulders as Bobbi was cleave gagged, Amy and Roberta standing guard as Blossom and Jannifer ran in the direction of the noise. As they made their way through the wood, they saw the four women lying on the floor, their weapons by their sides.
“OH my lord,” Jannifer whispered, “they got each other mom.”
“It looks that way,” Blossom said as they heard a crack behind them. They turned, weapons raised to see Anne coming down the path.

The disturbance over, the Paranthropus return to their digging. The male returns from the reed beds and marches over to a female who is excavating a hole full of small seeds, displacing her from the spot with a mild threat. She does not move off straightaway, reluctant to sacrifice all her hard work. Her status as the matriarch of the troop, the male’s first ever mate, gives her the confidence to attempt this defiant stance. The male, however, is in no mood for insolence. He shoves her off roughly and begins to dig for himself, abandoning his stick and using his powerful arms to dig deeper, throwing back huge handfuls of dirt. The hairy crest on the top of his head shows gingerly red highlights as it catches the light and the same colors glint in the saddle of hair across his lower back. This marks him out as the patriarch in the troop.
Rather like the future Gorillas, Parant

Fran has told me the news that she is pregnant with our first child, who she had kept as a secret for quite some time. I was pretty surprised and excited by the news. She even stated me that she didn't even use a Rubik's Cube to prove it. Even as a mom-to-be, Fran always makes me smile.
Saturday 20th September 2014:
I have recently searched online for some stuff for the baby, as well as cleaning the spare room that has been in the house for a few months. As for Fran, she has been puking in the bathroom this morning at an exact number of times (6, maybe?), but morning sickness is a common symptom for pregnant women. Don't ask me why I know this, I've read it from a book somewhere.
Friday 26th September 2014:
Fran has got into a catfight with the other girls today after she attempted to do her version of Angry Birds Stella. It was pretty painful for me to watch, so my instincts of a husband and dad-to-be kicked in, therefore I couldn't take it anymore and ma

During the night rain clouds had gathered over the festival, making it quieter at the stalls but the battle tournament area was just as crowded as ever. "Feeling more confident today are we" chuckled Feenix as we headed to field 1 for the Hoenn round finals "Sure am Treecko egg here I come" I giggled in response as we parted ways, Feenix and Jason heading for the stands while Tod and I headed to meet our opponent. "Rin from Chicole Village in Alima verses Azure from Cherrygrove City" the referee shouted introducing us to the crowd "Battle BEGIN!"
"Let's go Tod!" I cheer as he ran onto the field "Let's do it Leanne!" Rin called out sending to the field a Leafeon.

"Well enjoyed yourself?" Adam kissed Janice while they waited for their breakfast.
"Oh so much…and seeing Cari and Annie so happy." Jan smiled.
"I think we will both sleep long and hard today."
"I know, Mom will have to explain to Katy that we were out late."
"I caught her yesterday trying to explain to Katy what a debutante was."
"I know, I heard." Janice smiled again, "I think Katy has her heart currently set on being one too."
“Would that be a surprise to you?”
“I have some money, but not that much Adam,” Janice said as she looked round. “But who knows, ten years from now…”
"I'm amazed anyone has the energy to eat after a night like this." Susan looked at the line as people waited for the buffet to start serving.

"Mistress Fuuya, the driver is here to take you to the airport." Haruna nodded, quietly shutting her book and putting it in her bag. She shuffled over to the door, and took of her slippers for the last time.
Kokoro bowed. "I hope you enjoy your new school, mistress Fuuya." Haruna said nothing, but instead padded out into the sweltering heat. The air was thick and humid, one last blast of summer before it left. The car was air conditioned, however, and it moved away from the mansion with an almost disdainful ease.
The driver said nothing as the car swam through the late afternoon traffic. He knew that idle conversation would provoke nothing more than a nod.
Haruna turned the letter over and over in her hands. She didn't really want to believe it - there was no Hogwarts, no place for magical girls.
But it had arrived. And it knew what she could do- what she used to do, the "jumping" from room to room. She'd never met anyone who could do it. No wizar

Hours started passing by. Caitlin glued her eyes at the prison windows. Only a small patch of light was visible. She sighed, thinking with a heavy heart that most of this was her fault. If it wasn’t for her, Lucario, Aaron, Sheldon, and everyone else would be safe and sound. Her heart and thoughts began to grow heavier and heavier with every negative thought set in her mind.
Aaron glanced over at the young trainer. “Caitlin, this isn’t your fault. I’m sure you’re Pikachu and Eevee are taking good care of Lucario and Sheldon.”
“It’s not that, Aaron.” Caitlin spoke in a grimly depressed tone. “I wanted to live up to my parents expectations and become the best there ever was. Literally. But now this happens and I get nearly half of my Pokemon captured and only four of them, one being your Lucario, are probably lost, cold, hungry and scared.” She covered her face in disgrace and disappoin

"I'm just trying to do my part in making sure that the citizens of Amity Park are safe."
Jazz smiled, she knew that her little brother was doing the right thing. She then focused her attention to her parents that weren't buying what Danny was explaining. They were coming up with other reasons why Danny was considered a threat. And those reasons seemed illogical to Jazz and Danny, they both understood why their parents would think this way, though Danny didn't think Jazz would be helping him because he assumed that she didn't know his secret.
So while his parents tried to explain to negative side of Danny's heroism, Jazz decided to step into the argument so Danny could flee and transform back into his human form.

"Now, you listen here-!" Ethan started before Krista interrupted.
"That's a nasty bruise you got on your face, Director." Krista gave her sweet smile. The Director narrowed his eyes at the group.
"Is that a threat?"
"No. But it would be a shame if that pretty face of yours would end up with another black eye. That was a threat." Krista replied, words laced with venom. "Now, we have a proposition for you, Director. You let some of us, me and Steve, in for our own personal reasons. And you promote how your season one contestants couldn't get enough of the mansion madness."
The Director's eyes practically gleamed at the sound of the proposal. However, this would not do. The Director clicked his tongue as if he were debating on a proper response.
"Well," the Director finally replied, "that is tempting. Alright, here's what we can do. We can let the beer-belly daddy and the hobo brother in." Marco bit his tongue at the Director

Kayden couldn’t find himself stopping at any point. He was letting his anger easily get to him, and control his mind. As he continued through the city, he could feel his head hurting a bit, and he had to hide behind some cover so that he wouldn’t stop in the middle of the road for a zombie to spot him.
When he took cover, he had a flashback. Like before, it was about the Dark Queen, but it was during his last battle with her. He watched as he and his team had successfully defeated the Dark Queen and her Nightmares. The team cheered in happiness, high fived, and went home with pleasure, knowing their mission had been accomplished.
But then the scene changed, and out of nowhere, a vortex appeared. Out came a hooded figure, and it used some weird lab equipment to suck up something from the ashy remains of the dead Nightmares and their leaders. What was sucked up was a strange black liquid of some sort, and it all floated into some vials,

She sits there, atop the dry sea. There is faint movement in her chest, enough to indicate that she is alive. But there is no more beyond. Her eyes are shut, her body still. Her legs are crossed.
It is starting.
She breathes in deeply, hot air beating at her lungs. She exhales calmly, keeping the air flow constant.
A grain begins to tremble. It's a little movement, as if it's twitching in fear.
Her eye lids quiver.
Another grain of sand begins to shake in harmony. Another, and another.
A vein on her temple throbs. The grains are shivering all around her, concentric circles making the harsh light dance on their surface.
She grits her teeth, breath becoming ragged as the first grain shakes. Slowly, like a dawn star, it rises from it's shaking cousins. It does not float, because that implies that it bobs, but

It was a busy day at the Daikashou (Great Song) Theater, and now it was only three weeks before Valentine’s Day. Gakupo at this time was given a ten days’ suspension from the HVC for his attempt to force out Kaito from the Valentine’s Day performance. This place came into being in 1946 as a family-run business to provide entertainment to the war-weary Japanese populace ever since, living up to its motto: Through entertainment, all wounds are soothed. The production’s goal was to replicate the magic that was in the very music of A Whole New World by recreating that famed magic carpet ride from Disney’s Aladdin.
At this time, Kaito and Meiko were now at the theater’s scene shop, as they were being informed by the theater’s forty two-year-old, black-haired producer, Jungo Kurokawa, of the final details on the first set of rehearsals would play out. Meanwhile, dress rehearsals would begin the week after. The duo was also informed that

The following weeks were tough for Tempestuous. For the first time, he realized that, whether he knew it or not, he had taken it remotely easy during retirement, and that being thrown back into service again and playing his role as fleet commander was tiring. But, he put his heart and soul into his work, and never let anything less show. Hood had to admire his father for that. Still though, Tempestuous worked harder than he should've at his age, preferring to take most of the load himself rather than share it with Hood who was more than willing to. One day, Hood confronted his father. "Alright dad, that's enough." he began sternly. "You've been pushing yourself too hard. Remember, you're not a young ship. I am, I can take a lot more.

Her friends had teased her about it sometimes but the worst had been when she was in high-shcool and one of the popular girls found out. It had instantly made her the biggest target of bullying, constantly receiving insulting remarks about how she must not be good enough for anyone and not even have a soul mate. At least, that was what she heard from the girls. Many of the boys started hitting on her then saying that it was still a long time before they met their soul mate, and if she liked, she could have a little fun with them before then.Record of Experiment 485560106 (part 3)9 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Bobbi's New Job: Chapter 81 - Before dinnerBobbi had arrived home just before six o'clock to find Millie on her way out. She was wearing very different clothes to the maid's outfit which Bobbi was used to seeing her in. Millie had tight jeans and a long sleeved t-shirt top. The bottom of the left leg of her jeans was rolled up just above the stump of her leg, and the clumsy metal walking bar that she wore as a prosthetic leg was attached to her thigh over the jeans, as they were too tight for it to be worn underneath. One of the sleeves of her top was filled with the second-hand prosthetic arm which Megan had donated to Millie, and the other was tied of in a knot to prevent it flapping around. On her foot, Millie was not wearing her usual strappy sandal but instead has a high-heeled sneaker which balanced her good leg out to the same length as her amputated leg with its walking bar.Bobbi's New Job: Chapter 81 - Before dinner13 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
