Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey
Hurron pretended to be sleeping, while he watched his son standing guard by the fire. Boy has grown strong, stronger than the old wives of the village have foreseen. However, that was not surprising. Hurron never looked kindly on the self-proclaimed prophets. Fate is what one makes of it, and his

The moon is set,
Flames of the fire grow dim,
The Cry of wolves being to howl,
Through the misty cold woods,
It is time for the ultimate hunt,
The enemy is near,
I grab my axe and bow,
And set off towards my enemy's lair.

Every word was like a blow to the stomach, each memory a dagger in his chest. He was backed into the corner of the place he used to call his home, the boy he used to call his best friend the one causing him to retreat there.
"I had to tell them you were dead!"
Calvin's eyes were glued on the floor, his hands on his head.
"That there wasn't enough left of you to bring back!"
He shook, his teeth were clenched.
"And the entire time I was the only one who knew you were still out there!"
He shook his head back and forth slowly, as though denying it would make it untrue.
"It would have been easier if you'd died!"
Get me out of here. He wanted to melt through the wall. Get me out, get me away, I never should have come here.
Then it was quiet.
The pressure of the walls around him were gone. He was suspended in stars, and after a moment a familiar voice echoed around him. "I knew you wanted to get picked up! I just took a class on that! My project is almost over which means I'll g

The six-foot blonde girl stares at her wrapped hands. This feeling . . . . she was very . . excited? Eager? Nervous? She had no idea what she was feeling at the moment and it was starting to confuse her just a bit. She glared, and balled her hand into fists, she figured it out: she was very excited. She was going to finally get stronger, something she's longed for so long. Amadalia stood up, exhaled, and proceeded to walk back to her temporary home in the Rukongai.
The next morning everyone who applied to the Academy was summoned to the front courtyard, the one that was right before the main entrance. Amadalia took her blue ribbon that bared her last name "Moonsong", put the front of it over her neck, and gently pulled her hands back along with the two strands left over. She professionally tied the strands at the back of

Marshall tried to sleep but every time he did he just saw Fiona's smiling, sweet, face staring straight back at him. He even wrote in his entire song book, which is now all about Fiona.
He took the note book and went upstairs, entered his closet and put it in a box titled "Music" and set atop of the many notebooks already there. "Wonder if she'll ever hear these." He said aloud as he closed the closet door.
After a while he got hungry again, there wasn't any food in his cellar nor his fridge.
His stomach growled and his eyes turned to a darker shade of red, claws out he grabbed an umbrella and went out to hunt for some red.
"Fiona? Wake up sweety." Cake said taping her lightly.
"No I don't want that dead guy's pie." She said maneuvering herself under the furs."Marshall I said NO!" she said again waking up.
"What was that about? And when'd you get home?"
"What? But didn't you Marshall " She said with an unnamed look on her face as she whispered incoherently to

Marshall tried to pull Fiona off but she wouldn't budge,"Non, dun move guy. I hurt too much in my gut." She whined gripping him tightly. She truly did not feel well and Marshall could see this.
"Fi, you got any Ginger soda?"
"What? Oh (groan) yea, Cake said if I ever got a tummy ache it would help." She looked up at his face, she did not look, or feel, very well.
"Do you think you could let go of me long enough to grab a glass of that ginger junk?"
"o-okay, just hurry back." I should've never eaten that crummy apple, she thought. Fiona apprehensively let go of Marshall, she really didn't want to let go but if he was getting something to make her feel better than she'll be willing to let him go for at least a couple of minutes.
Marshall handed her the glass and set it down on the table when she was done with it, for now.

He could see them sitting near the candy stream eating the fruit of candied green apples as they laughed at one of Gumball's corny jokes. He could feel his jealousy rising as Gumball scooted closer towards the blond girl of his interest. She scooted away and liked the skin of the apple in her hand. Gumball understood this as her way of saying he's weird, just as he did when Fiona tried to get closer to him. Fiona then stood up and said that she should probably get back to the Grasslands, it was her first night without Cake and she had to figure out how to operate the stove.
"I'll see you tomorrow Gummy, gotta go make my own dinner."
"No prob Fiona, just don't burn down the tree house in the process." He said as she waved goodbye. Marshall wasted so bad to just sneak up behind her and trick her into a kiss, but they didn't have that type of relationship so he followed her from the shadows provided from the trees.
Fiona could feel something following her and it was strange since every ti

Gumball left with a friendly goodbye.
Once Marshall walked back into the room he went right back to his seat in which he floated over. Fiona, already in the middle of a game asked who was at the door. Not wanting to tell her what Gumball told him not to, he plainly said "An old friend from the underworld, you wouldn't know her."
"So it was an ex?" She said interrogating him.
"Oh, so if it WERE an ex you're implying you'd be jealous." He said inching closer to her.
"Jealous of what?!" she said guiltily.
"Like you don't know, you were about to kiss ME, and your saying you wouldn't be jealous?" She paused the game and looked straight at his, pretty close to hers, face and pecked him on the cheek, then smiled innocently.
"I guess I could be, if only you weren't such a butt face."
"Why are you so cute?" He meant to say that in his mind for only him to hear and instead he left Fiona contemplate over what to do and in the midst of it all she blushed a deep pink co

"Marshall what'er you doing standing with the fridge open?" Fiona asked sitting on the bench/sofa.
"Grabbing some apples from your fridge, want some?" He asked.
"Sure, got any green in there?"
(Indistinct growling sound)
"You're hungry, aren't you?"
"You figured out the puzzle!" He said acting like a child. Fiona walked down the stairs into the living room.
"You've been a real butt lately what's up with that?" Marshall asked walking towards the fridge.
"My heart guts are acting up, that's all..."
Marshall ate the red from an apple and threw the gray carcass into the bowl; he sat next to Fiona grabbing another. "You told Gumball?" Marshall and Cake were the only 2, beings that knew she had a major crush on Gumball."Has he given you an answer yet?"
"No, he left yesterday for an R.O.A.U meeting." She grabbed the only Green apple and continued, "Wait you're royalty, aren't you supposed to be there too?" She said taking a big bite of the juicy apple.

"How many games did you find?" he asked finding his confidence.
"What type of junk do you gots in here dude?" She said looking at a box labeled "random junk".
"Listen here, girly, that box is fer my eyes only. Now grab the games and get yerself down there before I get overly protective."

Today is the start of N's third day staying at my house.
It also marks the third day of my not being able to eat anywhere outside of the kitchen.
When my mother suggested to N that he could help out with cleaning, he took it to a whole new level. It was his first day living here when he found me eating in the living room. He watched me eat like a hawk, his eyes flickering around my plate. The minute I was done, he rushed towards me, grabbed the plate and went to wash it.
My mom thought it was hilarious. She would always crack a joke relating to N's housekeeping, but he was oblivious to her jabs. He would continue to attack the couches with a lint roller as if no one was there. Sometimes, I would just sit and watch him. It was free entertainment, and I had a front row seat to N making an idiot of himself.
It was also extremely cute.
The spotless house wasn't the only good thing about N's compulsive obsession with cleaning. It kept him busy and free from any br

"And what's that?"

Nintendo seems to be on a revival kick lately, haven't they? What with sequels to old cult favorites (Luigi's Mansion 2), a few new takes on their most popular franchises (Super Mario 3D Land and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword), and revived new life for some of their old franchises (Punch Out, Kirby's Epic Yarn/Return to Dream Land and Donkey Kong Country Returns). For my second (and hopefully more successful) stab at video game reviewing, I take on a game that's an example of the latter Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Lokomo has been my most trusted ally and favorite pokemon ever since I caught him. The inspiration for his name came from the word locomotive.

"See right there was a good example of you being cute!" He said pulling her into a tight hug, which made her blush even more."I could just eat the red from your face!"
"Why don't you?"
"Because I would die from your cuteness." He said seriously.
"Oh whatever." Fiona said clearly annoyed while trying to push him out of her personal space, he just squeezed until she gave up. The friendly glomp eventually turned into an embrace as she relaxed into the evolving hug. "I think I would be jealous if your ex was here." She said absentmindedly.
"I already knew that." Marshall whispered into her ear breathy. She shivered and blushed (again).
"Hey Marshall it's getting pretty early in the day, think I should get back to Cake before she gets poo brain from me being gone." She said not pausing her current game.
