The weird thing is is that she always walks next to me, always looking forward and never talking to anyone, but sometimes asks me questions.
Questions like "What's your favorite color?" Or "What's your favorite animal?" Just generic questions like that.
The next day she asked me what's my favorite type of flower is, and I decided to ask her something. "Why do you keep asking me these kinds of questions?" She just stared at me and tilted her head to the right a bit. "Don't friends ask each other questions about their favorite things?" She asked.
"Well...yeah." I said with confusion. "Then we're friends, aren't we?" She asked. I didn't know what to say. Were we friends? "You did save my life," She said, "And you were the first person to ever openly talk to me."
I made a smile and patted her shoulder.

Minutes later, the three gazed out towards the wall of webs from a distance. Silently, Seppuku raised a controlled and turned it on. Chiya covered her ears and dipped her head down quickly. At the simple press of a button, the entire area had been lit up. Two mini mushroom clouds quickly rose over the bunker, the walls of spider webs had immediately been burned away into nothing more than ash.
The three watched as pieces of the bunker went flying into the air. The entire area had been lit up, but technically, this wasn’t an act of terrorism on the account that this was uncolonized land. The three remained still for several more moments, from where they were standing, the bunker appeared completely demolished. One thing was for certain, Jody would have someone check out this location, but they would find nothing but ash and debris.
“I’m not going to miss those spiders…” said Chiya.
“They’re called tarantulas, Chiya,” said Seppuku.

The following day, Chiya had bid farewell to her mother on a happy note. She now had the sexual education she needed to safely get intimate with her lover, however, she no longer had a strong lust for this activity. If one day she found a good moment to do this with Earl, she would go ahead and do it. For now, she was simply excited to get to Devil’s Forest and begin the next step of their journey. What was most surprising, was that Earl was completely onboard for once. But between Chiya’s desire for adventure, and Earl’s desire to take down Black Shadow and live a fulfilling life with Chiya, neither of the two were as excited as Seppuku. The ultimate revenge was slowly coming upon Black Shadow, as Seppuku would often proclaim.
Right on schedule, the ship of Chiya Flower came descending through the dense fog towards the leveled starport of Mysteria. Chiya’s hair was blown back as she stood tall, several starport officers gazed up at the ship as
You're going to EarthIn time, we will all return to the Earth. We float out here on this new-found home. We used to call this place Mars, but the name was changed when more people began to live here. It is now called Alexandria, after the place on Earth. Many scouts have been sent to Earth to report on its status. The Dark Illness made the planet uninhabitable for humans. My family will not allow me to be a scout but it's all I want to do. I train and study every day in hopes that they'll realize how safe it really is. They believe the rumors about the missing team. My instructor assures us that they simply got lost out there, not eaten or slain. The plant life on Earth has taken the planet back as its own, and landmarks are difficult to recognize, according to him. Today we are running emergency drills in the Earth-simulator arena. I wait impatiently for my turn. We don't get to watch the other students practice, so my remaining classmates and I stufdy procedures together in the waiting room.

Paragon stood atop the highest building in Argent City, watching over the metropolis he served. Of course, this was a purely metaphoric vigil, as he couldn't possibly see anything in detail at such an altitude. It was his quiet place, where he went to clear his mind and think. But even in such a state of contemplation, he was always ready to fly into action when needed.
As he thought about the upcoming event, his wrist-com bleeped.
He sighed, and answered the call. "Paragon."
Catalyst's face appeared on the display, which was nothing to complain about, even when it looked as worried as it did then.
"I'm afraid I have some bad news," she told him, brushing from her face a few strands of golden-blond hair that were neither too straight nor too curly.
Fearing that she had some tragedy to report, and he held his breath in anticipation.

“I thought we were leaving for Jumang,” she said, stopping behind his chair.
“We are; traffic’s slow.”
“What’s all that?” She pointed to the display in front of him.
“It’s that ancient tablet Dajan was telling us about. The one from the museum. You know, he could have mentioned there were pictures online.”
Cal swiped back to the image of the aged stone tablet, displayed in 3D on the ship’s holographic dashboard. Pia leaned down, resting her elbows on the back of Cal’s chair, as she looked over his shoulder. He was acutely aware of how close she was. He could smell her perfume; sweet, with a hint of spice.

Kotori's scream gave their whereabouts away and now it was likely that the four youths would run. Of course, Chizuko and Kotori would have chase after them to make up for the mistake.
That was the way it usually worked. However, it seemed today, that things were going a different way.
Instead of running from them, the four boys headed towards where Chizuko and Kotori were. She may not have been screaming any more but Kotori was still clearly scared. Dragging her back behind the wall they had come from, Chizuko did her best to calm Kotori down and find out what was wrong.
“Why did you scream!? You've completely given us away! You...IDIOT!”
Tears began to stream down Kotori's face. It was obvious she regretted what she

“What do you boys think?” asked Lily Caldara, a thirty eight year old woman with rich brown hair and fierce green eyes. She was leaning back in her seat as she asked this so she could see her fourteen year old twins from the corner of her eye.
The twins, who sat comfortably in the back of the van, looked out the window to see their new home. Danny, the robust and adventurous one of the twins, managed a grin as he looked upon the ramshackle building.
“Looks…like it could use some family therapy,” Danny replied.
Jack, the quiet and reserved follower, chuckled quietly. “Are we the right therapists then?”
Danny smirked at his brother and opened his door. He walked up the drive and stood w
Surviving in an Undead World: Chapter 1 Warm air surrounds beach-goers on the Western coast. A young boy licks his deliciously cold ice cream, savouring each drop, as he escapes the sun’s fierce gaze. In the distance, a man appears to be drowning; slowly being swallowed by the roaring waters. He thrashed furiously, hopelessly trying to keep afloat. The lifeguard jumps from his post calmly, this being a routine occurrence since people were constantly ignoring beach rules. The predictable commotion of such an incident caught the boy’s attention. The lifeguard quickly brought the man in, whom had been freshly been kissed by death. But this man had been more than kissed, he had been caught in death’s embrace and has since somehow wriggled from it.Surviving in an Undead World: Chapter 17 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

She quickly got dressed and ran off to the kitchen, where she began to prepare breakfast. This morning was her turn to make breakfast, and she didn't mind. She quickly made some strawberry pancakes, and began to eat. A couple of minutes later, the scent of strawberries (Anarchy Strawberries, as those are the ones grown in Albouria. Unlike normal strawberries, these are blue in color and saturated with fuscis) woke Barlett up, who found it impossible to stay in bed.Fantascillian War, 1986 (Chapter 11)7 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“Yep, just about,” The crocodile responded, as the crew came around a small hill to find a small town before them. The town stood beside the shoreline of the sea, a series of docks lying its outskirts. As the friends looked closer, they could see that the inhabitants were mostly lizards or various other reptiles.

Saressa Yandell turned off the light before slowly closing the door behind her as quietly as she could. Feeling that all was calm she breathed a sigh of relief as she leaned her back against the door. After all she went through in a matter of hours she decided that it was a fine time to relax. However, she wasn’t the only person in the room. A part of her sensed that there was another presence in the room.
On instinct she reach for her particle magnum and scanned the room. It was plain and simple looking room, containing the usual furniture and appliances. Saressa then saw the newcomer sitting in a swivel chair at the desk in the darkened corner of the room. The former Time Agent walked over to the figure and held the gun to his head as she ordered, “Turn around so I can see you.”
The figure turned on the lamp at the desk and spun around in the chair. Dressed in a long red coat, extraordinary long scarf and helme

"Be quiet woman, they'll hear you" Nikolai hushed, his skin coated with sweat from stress and the heat of the mid-summer sun.
"Daddy, I want to go home" Konstantin whimpered, tears streaming down his cherubic face.
When Nikolai heard this, he turned around and bent down so he was at eye level with his son. Nikolai then placed his hands on his son's shoulders to comfort him.
"Everything's going to be fine" he whispered softly.
"There is an airport not 10 miles from here, when we get there, everything will be fine. But first of all, you need to trust me. Do you trust me?"

Parker crouched in the underbrush, keeping his ears and eyes alert for anything. His muscles twitched from being still in the bushes so long, but he knew he shouldn't move, lest he make a sound before he was done observing the area and scanning it for Wolfe.
Cautiously, he peeked up over the bush he was behind and peered around. He spotted a croate stumbling among the far trees and quickly ducked down.
A hand clamped over his mouth suddenly, and jerked his head back into a broad chest. He tried to wiggle out of the grasp that held him tight against whoever it was. But the grip just held him tighter and he could feel a mouth close to his ear, close enough to make a breathy whisper, "Stay still. And be quiet. You can trust me."
Parker frowned and tried to look over his shoulder at the guy behind him. All he could catch was a glimpse of unruly black hair, and part of a small, confident smirk.
"If you promise not to kill me, I'll let you go, ok?" the person whispered.

Dar led Captain Brisbon through the winding cabin halls until they came to the empty room where the trap door lay. The pirate captain stuttered in confusion until Dar explained that the pantry was hidden underneath a trap door, which he clicked open with the claw of his foot. “Oh!” Captain Brisbon expressed his awe. “I’ll need to install something like this on our ship. Y’know, to hide loot amongst other things.”
“Um . . . yeah, it’s a handy contraption,” Dar replied with an ironic smile, trying not to display his true feelings toward the idea of installing a trap door for such dissolute purposes. Shaking the thought aside, Dar guided the pirate captain down the stairs and switched on the light. Captain Brisbon paused mid-step as the lights gradually revealed the pantry’s contents.

The light cast from the hall looks almost ghostly, but I try to ignore that fact. I wonder how many people are in on this secret- how many know about the invisible doors and light diagrams and voice commands. Probably not too many.
We follow the hallway, the eletroel continuing to give instructions, and soon it's told us to turn and climb so much I'm sure that if I tried to turn around and go back I'd be helplessly lost.
“Turn to your right, and at the end of the hallway there is a door. That is your destination.”
I walk forward a bit more slowly, still in front of North. I’m not totally sure what I’m about to see, but I’m curious whatever it is. Maybe a lot of electroels. Who knows.
I open the door, and the first thing I notice about the room is that it’s not nearly as big as I thought it would be. You’d think a place crammed with knowledge would take up a lot of space, but instead all there is a huge electroel.
