Her mother came in and hugged her, now Alison was felling truly safe for the first time in her life. But that nightmare troubled her for weeks, she couldn’t understand her dream or why she was so terrified that nigh. After all, it wasn’t so scary.
The only things she could remember was a path leading to a forest with black trees and red leaves falling everywhere. She started to hear some noises behind her and she turned around - she saw a big black shadow shrouding her; she couldn’t see anything. After this, she woke up drowning in a water; she struggled to reach the surface; it was so close, but she had no air and her heavy body started to go into the deep and then …darkness… Then she was suddenly woken up in new place that seemed so familiar and at that moment everything sh

“Now what do we do?” Gin asked impatiently.
“We go home,” Tiara replied.
“How exactly do we do that?”
“With this,” Tiara pulled out a funky looking cell phone.
“What the heck is that supposed to do?” Gin said seeing alien technology for the first time in his life.
“When I press the ‘send’ button, this cellular phone will send an untraceable ‘message,’ automatically, to Shivrader back home. Once he receives the message, he will transport us back home,” explained Tiara.
“Is this Shivrader character an alien or something?”Ziena asked apprehensively.
“Yes, and so is Venzer, sweetheart,” Dave replied.
“Wait a minute. So this Venzer character and this Shivrader character are both aliens, right?” Ziena inquired.
“Yes, they are.”
“Aren’t they on the same side?”

“As much as it angers me,” Dr. Doom stated as he conversed with the various other villains and characters. “I must admit we must work together to stop this monster.”
“At least you're on our side,” Captain America said. “We're gonna need all the help we can get. That beast has already killed Galactus and the Fantastic Four, so we need to stop it before it continues on killing.”
“Considering how he single-handily killed Galactus,” Batman said. “I don't think it's gonna be very difficult for him to pick us off.”
“Have faith,” Dr. Robotnik said. “Apart we may fail, but together we'll put an end to this beast.”
“Together we're more powerful,” Iron Man agree

The day of the funeral was the hardest she had ever gotten through. Watching them place her father's dead body onto a funeral pyre, Jenny struggled to fight back tears; she couldn't bear thinking about the loss of her first true mentor, the person who helped shape her into the woman she was today. Very soon she would have to put his ashes into an urn, and then bury that urn in a mausoleum reserved for past heroes.
"Dad was a Galactic Guardian with a purpose," she began her eulogy. "He lived to defend the galaxy at all costs, leaving behind a legacy that we can be proud of. To hear of him being killed by the person I loathe the most...was very heart-breaking. He was my first teacher, the man responsible for fostering my interest in becoming a Guardian; it is with a heavy heart that I will place his body and soul in the care of those who died before him, as he makes his way towards the Kingdom. I admit that what he did to save my mom and sisters' lives

Hunting Ground (Chapter VI)The sun had not yet risen, but the birds were already beginning to sing in the trees when Justin Case’s SUV pulled up in front of Gina’s father’s house. The houses and trees of the neighborhood were silhouetted against the indigo sky, as it slowly faded to a lighter blue in the west.

“Nice outfit,” Justin commented as she climbed into the car. “Makes me feel nostalgic.”
“Eat it,” Gina said as she buckled in. With her clothes from yesterday soaked in blood she’d had to dress herself in what she had on hand at her father’s house, and what she had on hand were her old high school clothes that she’d left behind on moving out. It had been quite a while since Justin had seen that green crab t-shirt and those baggy gray pants. “You bring a camera?”

Nobody would later say that they weren’t anxious for the state in which Tony and Pepper would return. She could be enraged, feel betrayed. Maybe she broke up with Tony and this was finally the last straw. Especially Loki did not feel easy with it. He had been trying to read and highlight spells but it was as if he suddenly could not read elvish anymore due to the distractions. The weather sure had taken a change to match their moods. Loki had initially thought that it was Thor’s doing. But the man himself was slumped on the couch, finally sleeping off some severe worry and tenseness. Loki stood up and put the book back on the table. Bruce was watching TV, some show that did not make a lot of sense really. Loki paced a little, not wishing to wake Thor. Bruce gestured for him to come over and he sat down next to him on the cushioned floor.
“How are you today?”
“Fine.” Loki immediately said.

Nick shook his head a bit. He was lying on his back on some sort of padded platform. Bright lights shown down onto his eyelids. His left side tingled with pain and something was prodding his shoulder. A faint beeping sound pulsed in his ears, following the rhythm of his heartbeat. He could hear deep voices talking, but he could not understand them.
He opened his eyes slightly and squinted into the bright light. The talking in the room stopped and the object that was working on his shoulder pulled away. “Thank God, someone picked me up before they pulled out.” He thought. Nick let his head fall to his left and out of the direct light. However, instead of
Children of The Pipes Ch. 12The boy sprinted through the city, trying to not think about the odds of finding the girl before the bombs fell. As he ran, a thought danced through the back of his mind, no matter how many times he tried to crush it. He couldn’t stop thinking about when he would have to give up and escape. He didn’t want to leave the girl, but as much as he wanted to deny it, but if he couldn't find her, there would come a point where he would leave without her. Luckily for the boy’s conscious, he found her near a fountain. She was arguing with a mother who was carrying her baby. “You have to believe me! This city’s going up in smoke in a few hours! Please, please, get out!” she begged the mother. “You wackjob, you should be ashamed of yourself, hassling people on the street!” the woman said, beginning to walk away. “No! no!” the girl said, grabbing her. “Let go of me!” she said, yanking herself away from the girls grasp and runniChildren of The Pipes Ch. 1210 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Moaning weakly and rubbing his head where it had made contact with the floor, the man slowly opened his eyes, more concerned by the light than he was about the unexpected movements of the room around him.
As the room began to settle, Martin ‘Bull’ Vinick rolled over on to his back and began massaging his temples in a futile attempt to quell the throbbing in his head. As the fog of slight concussion, and a serious hangover began to lift, Bull wondered what the fuck it was that had gone wrong this time with the over engineered trash can that he called home.

The sounds of a gentle stream pervades the air. Birds chirp in the distance as Belar slowly opens her eyes to see a violet sky framed in branches. She looked around the wooded reed filled forest to find solitude. Pushing her hand onto the stone she laid on moss covered her tender fingers. Her tail uncurled around her side as she pushed herself up to see the vast wilderness. Belar saw an endless labyrinth of fauna that laid before her. Gently dusting the leaves and dirt that had fallen on her during while in slumber, she gazed up at the bright light of a blue moon. The tides in the sky rolled gently across leaving a slight wavy distortion. Every now and then a spark of light would shine and burst into a flame. The sky was not dark but it was not bright ether. It was like a deep evening violet.

Arcee and Luna were running up the spiralling staircase all the while Luna was thinking more about her friend’s Gundam and how something like that was possible; particularly the energy sword.
She had read reports that technology like that of an energy sword was impossible so how did Arcee create something that was said not to be possible, “Arcee,” she asked, “I was wondering how you were able to create a beam sword?”
“I had a feeling you would ask something like that eventually,” Arcee said, “technically speaking it isn’t a true beam sword, or at least what most people think of what a beam sword is.”
“What do you mean?” Luna asked.
“The beam sword that I created is only a beam sword in the sense that it uses beams of energy in a sword like shape but really it is more like a heavily concentrated laser grid that is powerful enou

The blare of the shipboard intercom shocked him from a dreamless sleep. Swinging his feet over the side of his bunk he quickly got up. He felt a momentary surge of nausea and disorientation as his sleep addled brain tried to catch up with his reflexive actions. He stumbled into the tiny bathroom attached to his quarters. The sink was already running, and he quickly stuck his head under the freezing water to shake off the last vestiges of sleep.
Finally lucid and alert he ran out into the corridor, not even bothering to get dressed. He ran past deck crews and attendants who only gave him the most casual of glances. Too absorbed in their own tasks. Skidding around a corner he ducked into the Grav Chute at the end of the corridor. A brief hum vibrated through his body before the chute launched him towards the flight
