It would have worried her that he wasn't answering if she didn't feel like he was just ignoring her. Instead she called Rue to find out if she knew what Dante was doing and if he was at home. Instead she found out he was staying at a hotel so Kyra got the location and room number from the younger Red and left to go see him.KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
When she approached the hotel, the sun still quite a way from reaching the noon position in the sky, she had hoped he was awake and she wasn't the one to have to wake him up. It was bad enough she had to prepare for the worst but she was there for him no matter what he said to her.
She knocked on the door and heard muffled talking through the door. When it opened, she saw Dante's face through the small crack just enough for him to see who was standing there. There was no anger on his face or in his energy so she took that as some

"Goodness, Mr. Romanov you should be resting!" She scolded with a click of her tongue.
She checked his vitals as Kyra gave him a 'told you so' glare which he promptly ignored. "Aside from a headache, I'm fine." He snapped.
The nurse pursed her lips in annoyance. "I understand you may THINK you're feeling fine but the truth of the matter, Mr. Romanov, is that you are recovering from brain surgery and any physical activity could cause a serious rupture." She stated.
"BRAIN surgery?!" He gasped.
"Yes, the large piece of metal had to be carefully removed from your frontal lobe and there was permanent damage to your right optic nerve. I am afraid you have permanently lost your sight in your right eye but I assure you it was a small pr

He looked over to his left when he picked up on the calm, even breathing of another sleeping form who was half on her chair and half on his bed, resting her head on her arms by his side. Dante smiled at Kyra and brushed the back of his fingers on her cheek, causing her to subconsciously lean toward the gentle touch.
Her eyes opened and met his, sharing a strong sense of affection that through them both off guard. She knew she didn't have feelings for him in that way and Dante loved someone else, he certainly didn't think of Kyra other than a friend. They both pass

We stepped out of the armory ready to fight. Chief then turned to us to say something.
"Who's the best shot here," he asked simply.
Fingers were all pointed at me faster than a blink of an eye. They must have seen me when I hadn't join them yet. I looked at the Chief's visor and nodded.
"All right I'm going to check around here. You stay here," he spoke and left.
As he left I looked at everyone here. Did they really think that I was the best shot here?
"Why me," I asked them.
They all looked at me and then at each other. Lasky finally just looked at me and pointed at Emile's Kurki blade.
"That's the blade of a Spartan, like the Master Chief," he spoke.
"If you were friends with a Spartan you must be a very good shot," Sullivan spoke smiling.
I gave him a slight smile as I turned my head back to the darkness. My unnatural green eyes burned into the darkness as I studied it for movement. I thought I saw something, but I couldn't be sure though.

Fighting in a WAR no less?! Then he loses his job and is told he could never again do what he loved so dearly afterwards? Talk about one cold hearted bitch."
"Right?" Kyra scoffed. "He deserves better than that over dramatic 'playing the victim card' bullshit anyway. There are way better women out there."
Rue side glanced at Kyra with a sly smirk.
"What?" Kyra frowned.
"You know what." Rue giggled.
"...Me?! Don't even. It's not going to happen. I have more important shit to do."
"Uhuh. So you just came alllll the way over here to put the smack down on some bitch you don't know because you have 'better shit to do'?" Rue laughed.
Transformers Origins Chapter XXXIVAnd it was thus that Ursa Prime sat alone in the humid air of a jungle planet, banished from his family and Cybertron for killing Centurion.Transformers Origins Chapter XXXIV1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
If he wanted to, Ursa could have honestly committed suicide; it’s not like anyone was going to stop him. However, he was scared. Primus had never even mentioned what would happen to any of them should their sparks go dark. As such, death was an extremely unfamiliar and uncomfortable concept for not only him, but the rest of The Thirteen (or rather what was left of them.) Sure, Ursa had killed Centurion, but ultimately, he was simply hoping that wherever the dead went (if there was somewhere to go at all), it would have been better than here. If there wasn’t a land of the dead, then Ursa would happily enter that oblivion. If there was, Ursa would procrastinate that visit as long as possible: he wasn’t sure if he could face Centurion yet.

"Alright now to find a spot to land this baby," I spoke looking over the gridded map.
The chief looked over at me then took a seat. He seemed to look me over watching my every movement.

“What in the name of the stars possessed either of them to do this?” Alchemist hissed as he glared at the gaping holes that were once Centurion’s optics and spark chamber.
“Isn’t it obvious?” Amalgamous sneered. “They’ve gone mad! Completely and utterly mad!”
“The question is not what, Alchemist,” Liege Maximus looked away from the centaurian mech’s body, unable to bear the grisly sight, “but why? Ursa and Centurion loved one another dearly, so for Ursa to do this, he must have been pushed over the edge.”

"Are you okay?" She breathed, running her hand gently down the bandaged side of his face.
"I'm alive and back home with you." He smiled, giving her more kisses, feeling his worries melt away. "That's all that matters."

Alex woke with a start, not remembering where he was. It was daytime. He was in a tent. There was an empty sleeping bag laying next to him. Then Alex remembered, he was on the planet Earth, in the tent of a human named Bob, who had put a soft splint onto his sprained ankle. There was a sizzling sound coming from outside the tent, and as Alex crawled out to investigate, a distinctive smell wafted into his nose. Bob was sitting next to a fire stirring something in a pan, "I'm just about to finish breakfast. We've got eggs and bacon."
"Ok, I'm hungry." Alex responded.
"Once we've eaten and packed up the tent, we'll go by my house so I can drop off my stuff and then I'll take you to your place." Bob said as he ladled scrambled eggs onto a plate, then handed it to Alex, "The bacon is in that pan."
"Um, thanks for helping me." Alex muttered awkwardly as he grabbed some.

"There isn't enough room in here for two beds, unfortunately. She will have to be moved upstairs where there is space." One of the nurses replied.

He had never killed a man before.

It was one of several colors that had to cosmetically enhanced, a trend that was taking hold of Radoona culture, but the Radoon were not terribly fond of it.
His attention shifted from the woman to the door as it opened. The shot was going to be taken from over a kilometer away. The woman crossed and uncrossed her legs as a Gaxan male walked from the door.
Tlaloc saw that the man was not the one that he was looking for. He was waiting for an Ohool man that was supposed to have been there already.
