Something tickled at his nose and Dib startled awake, blinking up into the dusky autumn sky with confusion. He couldn't remember falling asleep, but judging by the falling darkness around them, he must have been napping for at least an hour.
Strangely enough, he still felt the lithe weight of his alien companion next to him, right where he had been before he, apparently, had nodded off. Turning his head, Dib did a kind of double-take at the sight that greeted him.
Zim was lying next to him, his head resting heavily on his shoulder and large eyes closed.
Zim was slee- no. No. Irkens didn't sleep, Dib knew. But he was resting. The human barely dared to breathe, not wanting to disturb this rare moment of peace and trust.
Because it was.
It was a blatant display of how much the alien could relax in his presence. Even out in the open, even without his disguise on... Zim felt safe enough to let down his guard and take a nap with him.
Dib smiled, holding perfectly still to not rouse him

Ty nodded nervously. “We should do okay, I mean… We practice a lot.”
“We’ll be fine.” Marissa replied.
“I know, Mars, I’m just nervous.” Ty said.
“Clearly.” Adam smirked.
Jerome shifted in his chair uncomfortably. Ryan, another Hockey player on his team, raised an eyebrow. “What’s up?” He asked.

Metal Messenger I was in my room sitting in my desk in front of the window. I sat at my small desk and stared at blank paper in front of me.

My arm rested on the desk, and my head rested on fist. I had been staring at the paper for what seemed like eternity. I twirled the quill between my fingers and sighed.
Nothing was coming to me.
I come from a poor family and it doesn't help that I have no job. I have been trying for months to come up with something to send to the paper. If I had something to publish everyday I would have more then enough money to help me and my father survive in the world.
I have come up with ideas before, but they never lasted long or were soon canceled due to the fact no one liked them. Now I stared at the paper hoping words would come to

Blu stayed behind at The Black Sheep while the others where out. He called on a few favours for Emily. He felt awful for suddenly taking all of her staff. It was a good thing that people seemed to remember him and like him enough to help him.
"Blu, I'll be ok. You don't need to do all of this for me."
"Emily," He put the phone back on the receiver and faced the woman with a smile, "It's alright. Honestly. Besides it's not fair that I take everyone and leave you alone."
She smiled wearily, laughing softly, "You're too kind..."

Blue Ink - Chapter 2I stared up at the stars in the sky as I sat on the ground, beneath a tree. I could see them burning crisply against the dark sky, and I could see them clearly. I couldn’t remember the last time I had been able to see them like that, because I had needed to wear glasses for the last five years. And even with them on, the stars still looked slightly blurry.Blue Ink - Chapter 222 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I looked down and stared at my new legs, which were stretched out in from me. I turned my new hands over and held them up a little so I could see them. They looked almost black in the lack of light, but I knew they were blue in colour. When I stared at them, the orange glow from my optics made them look almost like a blue-brown.
What was I going to do? I rested my hands on my lap. I was no longer human. I was stuck in a body that wasn’t my own, which meant I could never return to my family as myself. Only as Mirage, and only if I desired.
The ridges above my optics lowered and a contemplative frown appeared on my face. Co

The messenger weaved through the noisy halls, jumping over playing children and furniture. He weaved in and out through rooms and hallways. Around toys, tools and treasures that where through about in an surprising organized chaos. The young boy reached the master bedroom and knock loudly before stand proudly at attention.
The Captain opened the door. She stood over the little messenger boy; arms tucked behind her back, tail gently swaying, a cigarette and a smirk on her teeth.
The boy saluted and handed her the stack of letters, "Message for you, sir!"
Quida took them without skipping a beat, "Carry on."
The boy saluted once more before running off to where ever he came from and she closed the door. The state room was massive just like every other room in the house. Huge bay windows over looked the ranch she lovingly dubbed "Home". From here she could over look everything; the barn, the livestock, the kids she homed.
The whole operation was her crowning achie
The Sixty Eighth Hunger-Games: Chapter 10Elk was immediately overcome by a chilling draft as his pedestal rose him into the arena. He had expected to see the sun glaring into his eyes, but faced nothing but a dimly lit cavern, shimmers of daylight shining through tall cracks in the ceiling, magma pools off to one side and endless tunnels leading throughout other parts of the arena. Spikes made of stone hung from the ceiling, looking very brittle and unstable, the golden horn in the centre was none other than the Cornucopia. It contained the usual supplies. Weapons, food, water, sleeping bags, rope, tools, containers and other materials. But Elk knew that reaching it would be quite the task. Searing hot steam shot out of chasms in the floor at a rapid and unpredictable rate! He spied the Career Pack peering at him. Creole, The pair from 2, Aquase, The pair from 6, and the District 11 girl. Even his own District partner was with them. Donna was glaring at him as well.

Rob was stricken with fear by the presence of the great Elite. Truth be told, he would've shot the split-jaw where he stood. But he was not in possession of his gun; it was Vincent instead who possessed the firearm. As the wind blew through the latter's hair, an ominous silence covered the land. Vincent stood vigilantly against the Anno, whilst the old Elite mimicked his same movements. Neither side made a noise; both knew that nobody was going to come out of this confrontation alive. And after a few more seconds passed, Vincent cracked a smile.
"What the hell you doing here, Split-jaw?" Vincent asked. "Can't you see that we're busy?"
"I will not allow you to go any further with this." Anno responded. "Leave, and I might spare you."
"Look, I asked you a simple question." Vincent bellowed. "Why the fuck are you here?!

I would probably regret this later, but I decided to stick around with the group. Though I still didn't trust them enough to talk to them, and I was still very cautious. I was ready to bolt if I had to.
The house was about a mile away from the city where we were heading. Isabella was leading the way, while Jake and Austin were arguing about football teams. Didn't strike me as important, so I didn't pay much attention to them. Pretty soon, we started seeing buildings. It was still very dark and I had horrible sight, so I couldn't tell how much things had changed while I was gone.
"Okay. We're almost there." Isabella said.
About an hour later, we arrived at a house deep in the city. Two floors with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Isabella showed me to my ro
Preparations (Imminent Destruction 6)Karen found the guest room filled with plastic crates which were all attached to the ground by steel hooks extending from underneath the floor. In the midst of these obstacles was a single bed that opened from the wall and screwed into metal studs at the footboard. The dingy, dust soaked mattress had a single stained sheet; the thin pillow looked as if it had been dragged through the hanger. Karen imagined every microscopic creature known to mankind lurking inside the worn fabric as she sprayed it with a disinfectant. She gathered her personal effects on a conveniently located crate and sat on the bed. Her calves pressed against the brown metal bed frame; the cold metal caused her to jerk them forward and rub the now cold spots. With a sigh she reached for her bag, pulling out make-up, spring water and an I-phone. She took a healthy gulp of the water and called Carlos over her phone.Preparations (Imminent Destruction 6)15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

General Eckhert walked past a big gate made of what seemed to be led and heavy metal mesh net, he found himself walking in the middle of a street, complete with sidewalks. Despite the fact that he was still inside a tunnel he could see trucks parked by the well defined sidewalks. Some of the trucks had the unmistakable cross that made them look like they were supposed to carry medical supplies or ambulances of some sort. The tunnel was lit by big neon tubes running on the top of it. He continued to walk and he noticed tents that were lit on the inside. There was no one walking or laying in his vicinity and he could hear his footsteps as he continued to walk. A few seconds later he began to hear shouting, radio chatter and people in white gowns that appeared to be medical staff walking swiftly. He approached a soldier in fatigues walking near him and asked him where the main medical location would be, the soldier pointed him towards the end of

I glanced behind me and saw Phillip standing there with a gun in his hands. "I've been expecting you," He said smoothly.
"Why did you do it?" I asked.
"I was just having some fun."
"In that case, I only have three words for you: you repel me."
The fight begun. For as long as I could, I used Baylee only, but then I pulled out my own Naturaleza. The shock of seeing me use two Naturalezas, two of opposite elements for that matter, made him lower his guard long enough for me to end him. When his body was on the floor and getting colder, Baylee returned to her original form and walked around the house. A few minutes later, she returned with a broad smile on her face. "What?" I asked.
"I found this in his bedroom," Baylee replied as she showed me Mary Emma's crown.

"Lola!" Bugs called as he knocked on her door and came into her apartment "Are you ready for our date yet?" he said as he looked around her front room.
A rasping hacking cough from what he had thought was a pile of clothes on her sofa was his only answer.
"Are you ok Lo?" Bugs asked as he bent down on his haunches painfully aware of how dumb it sounded as she looked at him with weeping red rimmed eyes.
"Never better Bugs, I must have lost track of time give me five minutes and I'll be ready for our date" she rasped.

The darkness is unbearable. Why aren’t the lights on? My head aches. I can hear fighting outside my room. Probably is Subject Zero having her blackout rage moments. The testing causes blackouts to some while others have headaches and stomach cramps. There is an explosion.
“What the…” I say out loud to myself.
Suddenly alarms are going off. I hear a voice over the intercom.
“Don’t kill Subject Zero!”
I stare at the door. I punch the door with my biotics which still have the effects of testing. I continue to punch and punch until there is a large hole for me to exit out of. I look around. Broken walls and a couple dead guards are on floor.
“Good riddance.” I look at their lifeless bodies.
I wander endlessly, looking for an open exit but all I keep finding myself at dead ends. There is a noise behind me. I quickly turn to see a shadowy figure. It gestured for me to follow them. I wasn’t sure but I decide to follow them.

Chapter 6: When Life Gives You Clones
A few minutes later, a tall, pale skinned human male with short brown hair, wearing a government issue black suit and red tie, stepped out into a three way hallway junction. As the man slowly gazed over the blood stained concrete walls and the motionless bodies of half a dozen black clad troopers strewn across the floor with a look of icy disinterest, two more troops quickly ran up to him and flanked him on either side. “The test subject is gone, sir. And there’s no sign of the hostile intruder, either.” One of the troopers reported, voice muffled slightly by his gas mask.
However, upon then noticing a thin trail of crimson coloured stains leading down one of the corridors away from the scene, the man pointed a finger down towards the trail, and remarked coldly “I don’t suppose that would count as a sign, corporal.”
In response to this, the corpo
