Where: Matinicus Isle
I had handed the gun to Josh, whom held it to Sale's back aggressively. The entire community walked around the edge of the beach, towards the rock. Dray, Amanda, Maggie and I walked in a quiet group in the back of the procession. I nudged Dray a couple times while we walked, but we didn't speak. No one did.
Until, of course, Maggie did. ''What are we going to do?"
''Wait and watch,'' I said said. ''It's all we can do,'' i shook my head, defeated. It was over. And better yet, we had gotten all the Pink Men.
''We altered the island to give plenty of space for you to move about wi
Indomitable Ch 21 Cycle It was a hot, sultry Atlanta night, the kind of weather no sane person would be caught in leather motorcycle gear, no matter how custom-tailored it was. Of course, I wasn’t sure anymore if I was the last sane woman on the planet or the only crazy one. Still, either way, over the past week back home, I was starting to enjoy these evening jaunts. I leaned against the roof’s ledge and gazed out over the twinkling lights of the city.Indomitable Ch 21 Cycle1 hour ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
After the Battle of Washington, as they had decided to call it, the President had decided to peel back some of the more stringent restrictions. The curfew was over and more leeway was offered to police and courts in dealing with Push crimes. Congress rapidly pushed through a new bill, the Pushed Regulation and Rights Act. The PRRA was a mixed blessing. While it reaffirmed basic human rights for the Pushed, it also was explicit in pointing out, correctly I was sad to agree, that Pu

Kelly didn’t have a car so she had to walk with the dragon back to the apartment. Kyle kind of liked Kelly and wanted to make sure she got home safe. He was also fascinated with the dragon. So he went with her. they walked on through the city down the sidewalks through the streets, people that were there stopped and stared, but there were few people there since it was night. Kyle was shocked at how well behaved the dragon seemed to be, he was a wild animal and he followed commands from Kelly better than his own dog. They walked on until they came to a bus stop. The bus’s in that city allowed pets on board, but when a bus stopped at the stopped and the man opened the door he screamed when he saw the big black lizard.
“What the hell!” he screamed. the dragon began approaching, “Oh no you don’t!” He yelled as he slammed the door shut and drove off.
“Hey!” Kelly screamed back at hi

Kelly drove on all day and night her adrenaline pumping as she raced to the other side of the states to find the FBI headquarters to ask what was up. During her ride she gave them a phone call where there was a signal and she told them about the man that tried killing her. When she described the man, they said that he wasn’t the man they sent to get her.
She continued on the road headed for Maryland, then to the capital. She looked at Anepanor who had been lying quiet for the past few hours. He looked very depressed and sad, he put his front claws down and planted his face into them. Kelly realized that the dragon might be hungry so she stopped at the first supermarket she saw.
“Stay here.” She told the big dragon as she left the car to buy some food.
He laid there for a while. He was not depressed because he was hungry, though he was that. he was depressed because he had just killed a

So after they awoke in the morning Kelly’s phone rang she picked it up and heard a man on the other side of the line. “Do you have the evidence with you?” he asked.
Kelly sat in bed for a moment, the dragon was still asleep she softly rubbed the back of her hand against the side of his face after which she kissed him on the cheek as she whispered in his tiny ear hole. “You need to wake up.”
“Hello?” the man on the other end of the line said.
“Yeah I’m sorry I won’t be fully awake until I’ve had a coffee.” She said. “What are you driving?” Kelly asked. As she stood up from bed and slowly put on her shirt. She was still not fully awake. And Anepanor only opened one of his eyes.
“Do you have the evidence?” he asked once more.
“Yes, now tell me what you are driving.” she said. she began to feel more awake and she went to the window to pull the curtain aw

They rode along with the truck driver until they came upon a small town there was a motel a gas station and a restaurant. They stopped there and Kelly went to the gas station first she asked them if there was a place to charge her phone, but they laughed and told her she would not receive signal there so she had to use the phone in the station. She got on the phone and called the FBI headquarters.
“This is FBI agent Kelly.” Kelly said over the phone.
The receptionist on the other end was not a friend of hers, but they did know each other the receptionist was pleasantly surprised and they spoke about the stake out and what happened she found out that they had been looking for her for days they couldn’t find the two men with her though, the truck their plant was all gone, the only evidence left was Kelly’s phone and USB drive.
“I’ll make sure to keep the evidence safe until we get to the states.” Kelly said.

That morning started like any other, Kelly woke up to find that Anepanor had then whe she waited he would come back with some prey that they would both share in eating. Her leg was healing up quite quickly due to the technology used in mending it. she was able to at least walk again and it had only been a week. Kelly really did like living with the dragon, they had a peculiar relationship and even though she had only known him for a week she would have stayed there forever with him, but she was the only remaining part of her crew who had evidence from the stake out. there was video footage on her phone and they recorded the entire conversation with their plant and the criminals. it was on a flash drive that she was carrying.
If her phone were working she would have already called, but she was getting no signal and the battery was already dead. before long here came Anepanor with a deer in his maw. he slit the belly down the middle with his claw and s

Kelly lived in the cave with Anepanor for a couple of days and she was beginning to grow tired of it. “Are you ever planning on letting me go?” Kelly asked Anaepanor as they slept and they were conversing in a dream.
“I don’t think I was ever holding you captive if you wish you can leave, but I don’t think your leg is healed enough yet and the nearest human village isn’t for at least two hundred miles.” Anepanor said.
“I know, but I think I should be headed back, not that anyone would care. But, I do have a job and they are probably already looking for me.” Kelly said.
“Then you’re leaving me?” Anepanor asked in a sad tone.
“Yes, I mean I might come back sometime to visit you, but I need to go back home.” Kelly said.
“And when will you be back? Tomorrow?” Anepanor said.
Kelly smiled “You silly dragon, I won’t be back for at least a few months.”

After breakfast was over Kelly reached for the bottom of her pants and pulled it up to reveal her calf. She wanted to see how her leg was coming along. There was a strange piece of metal clamped to the side of her leg, it looked like it had small sections to it and it curled around her leg like a snake coiling around her leg. What seemed strange to her was that there seemed to be no trace of the bullet wound. she remembered being shot, but maybe she wasn’t after all.
“What did you put on my leg?” Kelly asked Anepanor as he laid down he seemed to be doing nothing at all and looked really lazy. When she asked him the question he stood up and walked towards a wall in the cave with strange markings carved into it. when he walked towards it Kelly heard a click and the wall opened to reveal what looked like a walk in cabinet. Anepanor looked back at Kelly as if he were explaining. then he returned his gazed back to the cabinet. he pulled

That morning Kelly awoke and saw that Anepanor had left. she was in the cave alone now and she began to explore. It was a lot larger than she had first thought with deep caverns leading deep underground, they didn’t look natural and were probably actually dug by the dragon himself. She continued on looking around astounded by the beautiful architecture. the stone of the cave was not just cut taken and thrown it was precise and purposefully dug she could see beautifully carved images in the stone walls. And the cave was not dark as it should be. there was a good lighting in the cave. she could see slits near the ceiling where white light was shining through. It looked like fluorescent lighting, but when she studied the slits more closely she found that it was actually natural light. the slits at the top corners of the cave allowed light from outside into the cave. and it wasn’t a small amount either there was definitely enough light in the cave.

“Kelly.” A voice rang out in a brightly lit white room.
“Who is there?” Kelly asked looking around the room for someone. But she saw nobody, she didn’t even so much as see a door.
“I am.” the voice said this time from a specific location. Kelly heard it from behind herself. when she turned around she saw the dragon.
“You, you can talk?” Kelly asked.
“In here I can do anything.” The dragon replied. not moving his mouth as the voice still sounded like it came from him, a smooth calming voice.
“Here? Where is here? I mean where am I?” Kelly asked.
The dragon simply pointed to his own head. “We are here.” then he pointed to Kelly’s head “and here. We’re dreaming. We’re physically still in my home sleeping.”
“So you can enter my dreams? I must be going crazy. this is the weirdest dream I’ve had.” Kelly said.

Agent kelly awoke in a haze. she opened her eyes slowly and everything seemed to be a blur. she could see brown stone above her light by a blueish white light, but she still didn’t feel completely awake. she felt like closing her eyes and going back to sleep, but remembered what had happened a few moments ago. it could all have just been a dream. After all she was just waking up. But she didn’t remember having a stone ceiling or walls. in fact nothing in the room she was in looked particularly like her bedroom.
Realizing that she might have been drugged she forced herself to wake up. Without her morning coffee it wasn’t easy. But, adrenaline started fueling her as she realized the situation and danger she could be in. The last thing she remembered was being surrounded by a bunch of men, who are criminals responsible for capturing young woman and selling them as slaves. Kelly realized she may have suffered this same fate. Though there was

Book 1: Dragon claw
It was close to dark and two people sat in a truck in the middle of the woods. One was a plain looking young woman in her twenties she wore a jacket, jeans and ball cap typical looking tomboy. the other person was a man he wore a jacket and jeans as well. The man sat in the drivers seat and he leaned back as he tipped a styrofoam cup to his mouth turning up the radio knob. The sounds coming through the speaker were fuzzy and there were two men in it talking to one another.
These two people were actually FBI agents working together to catch a human trafficking crime syndicate. they had man inside posing as a buyer who would buy a woman from the criminals to get evidence and expose them. They were not just interested in the men doing the selling they were looking for the head boss.
So they sat in their truck in the middle of the woods in Canada through the radio listening to the wire their inside man has and watching the cabin a few hundred yards away. They
Sol.Terra - Episode 9: the Other Side of EadilonMaster Vomaru slid a document off his desk and handed it to Cal. Cal took the piece of holographic-printed card and examined the Larpan insignia stamped on it with something close to awe. He had been sending applications to visit the planet for years. Each time they had been denied or bounced between departments until they were lost in the bureaucratic ocean.Sol.Terra - Episode 9: the Other Side of Eadilon3 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Larpa and Tentarvo had founded the IU conjointly, but Tentarvo was considered the political, economic and cultural centre of the Union. Its population and councils contained families from every Union world. A little known fact was that Tentarvo’s supposed affluence was only a fraction of the real IU government; designed to draw the galaxy’s many eyes away from Eadilon’s other planet. The true running of the Intergalactic Union happened on Larpa.
Travel to and from the planet was not difficult for anyone with an IU passport, however entrance into the capital city, Alezia, was heavily restricted and only possible w
Indomitable Ch 20 Pyrrhic I am ashamed to admit that my memory of events right after my talk with Gerald is incredibly hazy. Mainly, I remember start to pass out. It was just impossible for me to hold on any longer, no matter how much willpower I had. I faded in and out of a twilight haze, catching just brief snippets. I know I was placed on someone or something with wheels. There was some sort of argument or discussion; there were definitely uniformed people involved, but I’ll be damned if I couldn’t tell if they were police, military, or something else. I think I may have been in an ambulance at one point, then there was the anxious sensation of being wheeled on a gurney surrounded by doctors and nurses. It was surreal, as if I was in one of those medical dramas when the trauma victim gets rushed to surgery. That’s when everything completely faded away.Indomitable Ch 20 Pyrrhic3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Hey, folks!" a cheerful voice said from the off. "Here's Steve again and it has been nearly eight hours since Amanda and Johnny have turned into earthworms. They've spent most of the time boring through the earth in this crate where I stored them, just like normal earthworms do, and I have barely seen them. Well, that is until an hour ago when they suddenly showed unexpected 'activity'."
Steve snickered and grabbed the crate's lid. "So let's take a look what Johnny and Amanda are up to!" With verve, he removed it and exposed the two earthworms Johnny and Amanda had been transformed into. But instead of digging themselves through the wet soil, both their wriggling shapes were at the surface, tightly pressed against each other.
Again, Steve snickered and brought the camera closer so that one could see that both worms had connected their bodies. "Well, well..." Steve mused. "I'm wondering what the

"Surprise!" The loud yell filled Yuri's bedroom. Yuri opened her eyes and sat up- only to bump her head on Nephela's, who had been leaning down.
"The thing you're supposed to say is 'Happy birthday', Neph. 'Surprise' is for when you're surprising them," Yuri mumbled sleepily.
Nephela pouted and snapped her fingers, a gesture she had most likely learned from one of the older movies Yuri's mother had shown her. "Rats. Happy birthday, Darling!"
Yuri smiled. Nothing could keep the bubbly redhead that had moved in out of a good mood for long. "Thanks, Nephela. Hey, where's everybody else?"
Nephela laughed. "Sleeping, silly! I'm the only one who wakes up at 4:00!"
