Unfamiliar PlaceSilence. Everywhere was quiet. No one was around. There was no human activity at all. It was odd, especially in a city. She had expected there to be something going on.Unfamiliar Place2 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
That, however, was not important. Right now, her priority was finding out where she was and how to get out of it.
The place didn't look like much of a city. The buildings were all grey, some were tall, some were small and some were falling apart. No lights were on, it was almost like there wasn't really anyone here. That meant Sora was mostly likely the only person in the place right now.
Suddenly, footsteps that were not her own started to sound. They were approaching fast. Not wanting to be caught, Sora ducked into a nearby alleyway quickly. She hid behind a bin, bringing her knees up to her chest and making herself small. She hoped that whoever it was approaching hadn't seen her.
The footsteps stopped right outside the entrance to the alleyway. Sora didn't look out from her hiding place. After a few moments, they sta

But even as I race down the loading station with my bag clutched tightly in one hand, I can see my dreams disappearing down the tracks with the my train, leaving behind a newly heart broken flapper behind in its wake. My sore and tired feet begin to slow and my lungs heave, compressed by the small beaded dress I had saved my allowance up for. Patting a hand up against my newly bobbed hair, a single tear trails down my face.

Irony of ScienceTime. I joked once with her that it was simply the thing that stopped everything from happening at once. When she asked me for space I laughed, and said "Of course you can have space, if you didn't, everything would be happening right here."Irony of Science3 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
That's not what she meant. She wasn't amused.
There's that long awkward period of mourning you go through when you stop being part of someone's life, when they stop being part of yours. You do things to help you cope, maybe workout too much, run too far, move to a different city and start drinking all the time. Coping mechanisms. I tried them all, and in the end, I dried up, slowed down and poured myself back into my work. It's ironic that the thing that killed us wound up being the thing I turned to in order to save myself.
My liver has always been shit.

"We've been studying you, Winston," said his robotic captor. She bounded along beside him, hooves echoing on the hall's ruined concrete. "We learned what stimuli would wound your soul. What you fear. What you hate. Then we prepared a special room for you."
Winston froze, feeling terror grip his heart. "Room 101 is real?"
"Nope," said the pink ponybot. "We inverted that. It's Room 010."
Winston stared into a medical office. A chair and high-tech headset awaited him, along with balloons and cake. The robot said, "You can't defeat the Party."

“What happened to my arms?” Jason asked.
“When you were involved in that car attack, your whole body was damaged. But you claimed that you couldn’t feel your arms, right?” Replied Professor Flynn.
“We’ve had to do the worst Jason. Your arms were beyond repair and needed to be amputated. But rather than just leaving you with no arms, we decided instead to replace them with these new bionic types.”
Jason took another good look at his arms. Whatever remained of the fleshy arms he was once using, had now been replaced all the way up to the shoulder blades. He gently rubbed the palms of his now titanium hands across the lower arms, surprising himself at just how smooth they were.
Richard became surprised at Jason’s reaction. He couldn’t help but chuckle.

"You just had to Jinx it didn't you!?" Shepherd screamed through his comm-link as another blaster salvo destroyed the earth next to him. Peppering his armour with debris. Commander Shepherd along with Red, Iron, Frenchie, Poppy, their Jedi General Veero, Jinx, and at least a few dozen 'Redcoats' clone troopers lay pinned down. All hiding behind large rocks, and what little cover they could. They were travelling down a ridge, when they were ambushed by Separatist droids. Out manned, and out gunned, they struggled to hold position. They already lost a dozen troopers to the initial strike.
Now, they struggle to survive. All fighting in vain, in hopes in a fools miracle that they receive reinforcements. Out manned five-to-one, and with little firepower, this was merely suppose to be a reconnaissance mission. Now… it was a slaughter. The cries of the dead and wounded filled

Tout en sirotant son café, il connecta ses implants à l'ordinateur de son bureau et regarda son IA personnelle envahir les réseaux inertes de l'ordinateur. Samantha, comme il l'avait nommée, se mit au travail sans attendre. Elle tria les dossiers, les ordonnant par ordre d'importance avant de les envoyer aux divers services concernés. Puis elle interpella son collègue : "Désires-tu quelque chose ? -Non, merci, Samantha. Je vais entrer les codes nécessaires au travail d'aujourd'hui. Montre-moi le dossier en cours, s'il-te-plaît. -Tout de suite." Il vit s'afficher sur son écran le visage d'un jeune homme et d'une jeune femme blancs, tous deux soldats d'élite.

“Come along, to my office!” Captain Falcon shouted enthusiastically.
Earl nodded and followed him past the two Blue Falcon's that sat in the Falcon Garage. The day had passed, Abigail was now a part of Team Seppuku and Earl had lost his spot on Chiya's bed. Now needing to camp out elsewhere every night, Earl immediately finds himself conflicted on his views with Abigail. On one hand, he would inevitably lose Chiya's attention and a place to sleep every night. But on the other hand, Abigail was a kind person who had only just found her sister. Ultimately, Earl couldn't make up his mind of whether Abigail's presence in the base was a bad thing or not. This would be decided for sure once Seppuku returned from his trip, as this would establish whether there would be conflict within the base.
The Abigail predicament had been set aside for the time being, however, as something else of great interest had been sparked back into Earl's head. After having discovered
AscensionBright lights were all Jayden could see. He felt a disturbing sensation all over his body, as if he was “melded” to the platform he was lying on. Cold sweat was running down Jayden’s body as he desperately tried to move. His efforts were hopelessly futile. He tried screaming but no words escaped his lips. Only the rapid rise and fall of his chest and his agitated breath were what he could manage. Jayden’s eyes darted in every direction, searching for any presence around him. He didn’t see anyone but he was certain there were, specifically, four other people in the same room as him. Exactly how he knew this he didn’t understand, but sure enough, four silhouettes slowly approached the platform where Jayden lay.Ascension1 week ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
