Double-Edged Legends XIaChapter Eleven Part One: Now That's Funny
Worn out from last night's heart-to-heart with Azrealle and the others, David slept in the next morning. Even though he had no hangover, having process all of that alcohol had left him dehydrated to the point that he couldn't do so much as take his morning piss, causing him to run for the kitchen and quickly chug a gallon of purified spring water. When finished wetting his whistle, David went back to his room to change out of his Native American style pants and into his day clothes. Arriving at his room, he realized that the door was closed; he could have sworn he left it open when he hurried out to the kitchen so quickly.
"Hello," said David, as he opened the door, "I swear, if one of you guys jump out and scare the crap out of me I'll " Before he could get his entire threat out he saw something on his bed, which had been made. He was surprised and confused, to say the least, when he saw it was Gahege's breastplate that he threw in

"NO BROWNIES!!!" Sabrina shouted at the top of her lungs in her sleep.
"WHAT THE FU " David quickly woke up from the booming sound, falling out of bed and hitting the floor with a thud. Looking around in bemusement, he realized what had just happened, unable to believe that Sabrina was still fast asleep. Of all the things she shouted he couldn't think of anything more random and confusing. Getting up he headed for the bathroom for a good long and hot shower, and boy did it feel good to get clean again, even if he didn't get to use that really nice steam shower in the guest bathroom at Launa's apartment. By the time he got out David had the desire to break a sweat and go for a nice long jog. Wondering if Sabrina would like to join him, he went up to the side of her bed.
"Sabrina," he gently shook her shoulder, "come on, it's time to get up." She just brushed him off and continued to snore, but he wasn't going to give up. "Now Sabrina. Get out of

Wake up, Launa was gently shaking David in his guest bed, Come on, David, we need to get to work as soon as possible. But he just motioned for her to leave him and let him sleep. David was extremely tired after what had transpired last night. The awesome party his friends threw for him, the bar games, the fight he had with Joel, the battle he had with his inner beast and the partial transformation everyone saw had a strong effect on him. He hadnt felt this warn down and weak since he woke up in the Tokalan camp for the first time, when he had bandages around his broken ribs and his dislocated arm in a sling. To make it worse, he kept dreaming about the fight he had with his other self: the emotions and memories that flashed through his mind. Now, we have to start your training as soon as possible. Before David could ask for a little more time, Launa pulled him out of bed and dragged him to the kitc

Over the past few days, Davids skill with a bow became very effective. Although he wasnt the best, his performance was impressive even by Tokala standards. However, not being able to shoot anything except stationary targets became quite tiresome. He wanted to challenge himself.
One day when David was shooting with Wyanet he asked her if they would be able to go hunting outside the camp.
Sure, why dont we go tomorrow. she answered.
If you dont mind, said David, I would like to go today. I havent left the camp since you brought me here. I mean, Ive seen you go out and come back with huge game, while Im stuck in here trying to impress your father and come up with new ridiculous games for Takoda that dont involve me getting destroyed or sore by the end of the day.
Dont get me wrong here. Ive never had a better home than this place and had so many care about me. I lo

Man, what a party. David woke up much later than he usually did. It seemed to be midday. But it did not really matter since pretty much everyone else was completely exhausted from last night. All but Takoda of course, he still wanted to do nothing but play with David. However, Wematin did nothing to help him. David would have to find a game that wouldnt require him to work so hard, and fast. Ive got it' thought David.
Hey Takoda, would you like to play a brand new game?
Really, Takodas face lit up with joy and anxiety, what is it called, and how do you play it.
Its called hand slap, explained David, you hold out your hands like this and I try to slap them and you pull them back. If I miss, then you get to try.
They both sat down across from each other inside the hut in the center of the camp and got to playing the game. It didnt take Takoda very long to match

Chapter 2: Bittersweet
Hurry and get up. Anybody who isnt ready and on the bus in an hour will be left behind to clean the whole orphanage.
That morning everyone woke up to the extremely effective alarm that was Ms. Proulxs hoarse voice. It was that day of the month Ms. Proulx took all of the orphans with her to the town of Churchill; the only day when Davids chances of enjoying himself were more than one in a million. Not hesitating, David jumped out of bed and quickly got ready. He didnt care the slightest that he was still in great pain from his beating last night.
David hurried downstairs to his awaiting breakfast, very hungry from missing last nights supper. He was glad to find out that todays breakfast was oatmeal with brown sugar and milk. It wasnt very often anybody there had a decent meal that would keep them satisfied until lunch, let alone one that was also at all enjoyable. Taking advantage of this rare and enjoyable mea

Hey, David, said Maiara, walking past him, Just a couple more months.
Dont remind me, David hadnt been this anxious in his entire life, This wait is going to be the death of me.
Despite what David and Wyanet had to painfully wait for during the past seven years, they still enjoyed each others company no less. Everyday was spent together, with neither one leaving the others side for more than a couple of hours. They had even moved into the same tepee.
Throughout the past few weeks or so, everyone had been telling David what he already knew regarding what was soon coming up: his twenty-fifth birthday, and in extension, his marriage to Wyanet.
In order to ease his mind, David decided to ask Wematin, Gahege and Bidziil to spare a few minutes to talk with him.
Dude, what seems to be the problem, asked Wematin, youve been looking a little uneasy for a while.

Ah my head, David was waking up from his little nap, why does my head hurt so much. He was having trouble remembering what had happened to him. It then came to him that the last thing that he remembered was holding something furry, something huge. What was it; what was I doing? David thought. Then it hit him like the tree he had slammed into. Wyanet, wheres Wyanet.
As he hurried to get up, he felt sudden and sharp pain in his chest and right shoulder; he laid back down. His ribs hadnt fully healed and his shoulder was still dislocated.
Where the hell am I? Wherever he was, he wasnt back at the cabin. He way lying in big animal pelts of fur in what seemed like a teepee. David could hear voices coming from outside, but they were too indistinct to tell what was being said. So David slowly got up and peeked through the flap. Wyanet was talking to another Tokala, but he

Chapter 3: No More
David woke up yelling in terror. His heart pounding in his chest, so hard that he could feel himself rock back and forward from the force of his pulse alone. Cold sweat covered his entire body and his hands were shaking like shriveled leaves in a blizzard. It was another one of those strange dreams, but he couldnt remember anything about it, not a single thing, no matter how hard he tried. These nightmares have been getting worse over the years. Rather, he had been waking up with a stronger sense of fear and horror in his heart, but it felt like these feelings werent his own. He just didnt understand, and part of him hoped that he never would.
Knowing that he would not be able to sleep any time soon, David decided that the cool midnight breeze would help calm him down. So he went to grab his jacket and shoes; he was so glad that the spring snow had melted away weeks ago.
Sometimes, when David grabbed his jacket, his thoughts

Retrieving the mail was the only thing that David Hemming had to look forward to once a week. It was pretty much the only responsibility that was officially his, and was the only reason he had for not leaving this God forsaken boys orphanage. Not to mention evading the clutches of the hag who ran the place, Ms. Proulx.
He always told himself: This is the day, this is the day! David did not even waste the time to put on his coat or his shoes if they werent on already. It didnt matter that it was snowing in late fall and less than zero degrees outside. He made sure that nobody could lay their hands on the mail before him. The young lad didn't care if it meant being harassed all day by Camille and his gang, or doing all the chores that Ms. Proulx could think of. Over thirteen years had passed since his mother abandoned him on the front steps. Luck him, the fact that nothing bearing his name had ever come out of that rusty old box did no

Launa could not remember the last time her apartment had been such a damn mess. Her roommate, Sabrina, just had to invite a few extra people to the party last night, more like fifty extra people. Not a single floorboard or peace of furniture didnt have a piece of trash or some unidentifiable wet substance covering it. She had been at it all damn day and only finished about half of the job. And to just add a cherry on top, she had to do it all on her own; Sabrina had a terrible hangover, which she most certainly deserved.
At least being a ten-foot tall feline with olympian muscles made it a bit easier to cary loads and loads of garbage. However, Launa, even though with the figure and build she had, displayed such great sultry and beauty with little effort. Her long white and thick hair reached down just past her more than ample bosom and against her dark coat. And despite being such a power house she still managed to keep such an alluring and curvaceous bo

Chapter XIII: Here and There
It was a dark night along a moon lit dirt road in the middle of the woods. The air was cool with an occasional breeze. Walking in the middle of the road were a woman carrying her infant child in her arms as he slept calmly and peacefully, sucking on his thumb as his mother's arms held him lovingly against her bosom. She smiled down at him, rubbing his soft head with her left hand as he lay in her right arm. Next to her was a tall man with long black hair that went well past his shoulders. One could tell he wasn't sharing the warm emotions the woman had, though he did seem a bit anxious about something but not too anxious. Looking to the woman he saw how she was lovingly looking down at her son with such a warm and loving smile, showing her tender loving care for him.
"Don't look at him like that," the man snapped his fingers in front of her face to get her attention, "it'll give you second thoughts about what you need to do."

The secretary's, Sarah's, was right outside the large and sliding double doors that were made out of translucent, double plated glass. There was a well sized fish tank at one end of the room and a couch on the other side of Xenny's desk. However, out of all of the room's features, the one that was most impressive was Xenny's laptop with "Centra" on the back, which had a holographic interface.

DEATH VALLEY, CA
Trudging across the dunes of the hottest area in the world, even for an almighty being such as Tahera, wasn't the easiest of tasks. Normally her intimidating and tall stature and Olympian surpassing physique would help the Great Wolf Mother with any terrain, but even the mother of all wolf tribes couldn't help but complain to herself as her purely white coat failed to shield her from the heat. There was absolutely no water source for nearly twenty miles in any direction, today was a record high, and there hadn't been the smallest cloud in the sky to supply shade for any bellow. When considering that this was naturally the hottest place on the face of the planet, locals still didn't expect for temperatures to reach over a hundred and forty. Regardless, Tahera was aware of what the cause.
As the giant and panting wolfess moved on she could feel her short temper getting all the more diminutive in this abusive and unforgiving climate. Of all the places her leader had chose

"Well," said Wematin, with a patronizing tone, "you should've thought ahead of time when you refused to eat that fish for lunch. You need to lean to not be so picky or else you'll be staying hungry tonight. Maiara caught and made it just for you."
"That's not fair. Fish is icky and gross." It was no secret to everyone in the tribe that Takoda didn't like fish, but Wematin and a few others have been trying to get him to at least try it. Of course, with the little cub being as stubborn in this one single regard, all attempts have failed.
"I'm sorry you feel that way, but if you don't eat any of it tonight then you're just gonna have to go to bed hungry with an empty stomach." Wematin didn't like being this stern, but he didn't see any alternative this time.

"D'awww it's nothing Davod," Launa gave him a heart-warming smile, "what are friends for after all? Besides, I've been looking forward to giving Takoda his little gift." Launa patted the bag she had over her shoulder.
"Really what exactly did you get for him?"
"You'll just have to wait and find out, little wolf." She had been starting to call him that from time to time, usually when being a bit silly or when in a teasing mood, ever since David recovered from his "little" emotional turmoil, which David was starting to like.
As expected Bidziil poked his head out when he heard the two of them approach the gate, happily greeting them to their little home away from home. Before opening the gate, Bidziil told them that they should beware the "small" surprise waiting for

Not giving him the chance to get up, Takoda pounced on David and held him down.Growth Spurt III6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Gimme the candy, Dawvid." The sweet-toothed cub licked his lips and stuck out an eager tongue, on which David placed the chocolate bar.

"Mmmm, that was yummy got anymore, Dawvid?" He shook his head.
For a good while they just sat there as Takoda leaned against a tree holding his best friend and listening to the wind in the trees and the water running and trickling in the nearby stream.

So he disobeyed and moved out of hiding. Now he didn't expose himself, he kept low and kept an eye on the space ship. He had seen the ramp come down confirming their suspicions about the object but after that Arcee had vanished from his view. As he moved around to get a better view he traversed almost half a circle before he was able to see part of Arcee.
She was in the ship and all he could make out was her feet, what was she doing? He couldn't see inside so he moved in closer, this was definitely strange; what was going on? Since there was no sign of a struggle he felt it was somewhat safe to proceed nearer to the spacecraft.
As he did, he didn't get far as Arcee walked out of the space craft and shouted at him, "Jack Darby what did I say!"

Then above her hands a small flame appeared. Her eyes glowed with excitment as she watched her father bend the fire.
"I want to do that!" Mako cried.

A few days ago, he had earned his 6th badge, the Feather Badge, from Winona. It was typical of him to rave for a few days straight about earning his next badge, but the day after the Gym battle was unusually quiet. Ash hardly spoke at all the following days and even began skipping meals, which was VERY odd since he was known to be a big eater by anyone who knew him. Not even his best friend Pikachu could cheer him up and begged May to do something to lighten his mood. At least, he tried.
