Alec wandered through the wide forest. It was a beautiful place, especially this early in fall. The weather was just right, with a comfortable temperature. The trees were a brilliant mix of yellow, red, and green. Beauty and perfection surrounded him, and it was all he could do to keep from drooling.
Alec loved the forest. Ever since he was a child, he would wander through the boughs of the trees, climbing, sneaking, jumping, whatever, as long is it was in the forest. The f

Observation is one of those things that are most critical when entering into something new. Not that observation was one of his strong points. In fact, up to three years ago, it was considered almost a nuisance. But time had changed that. And now was the time to use what he had been given.

Becoming a CustodianThere was a rhythmic clicking and tapping as white pointed feet crept over the stones near the large cavernous opening which served as one of the exits for the trials; where young grubs could be found emerging from at any given time. Various other white carapaced creatures scoured the entrance for the small wrigglers. Those who found an acceptable one would take it up and scurry off with their find. It was hard work to find a decent charge before another got to it first. There were often fights over who would end up with the grubbling, fights which only ended with one Lusi standing.Becoming a Custodian3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Emitting a irritated growl one particular Lusus crept on in search for a charge. A search it had been on for years with no success. Coming across a grub it leaned down and scented it out. With a rattle of frustrated clicks from its throat it moved on without so much as a second glance. Clicking over the stones its attention was grabbed by a disgruntled holler from one of the other Lusi. The creature reared

“Harpies have had many iterations within mythology,” Mr. Evans explained while bringing up pictures on his PowerPoint presentation. “In early mythology, they were seen as beautiful, winged maidens. They were like the Greek angels. However, later writings describe them as having faces like ugly old women and the claws of a hawk.” He brought up a slide of what looked like an eagle with the head of a vampire woman. An ugly vampire woman, to be exact.
“Sir,” Alex said while raising his hand, “how could their image change that much?”
“It’s actually quite simple,” the teacher grinned at his student’s interest. “These kinds of things happen all the time. This is just like how we call the Greek legend Heracles ‘Hercules’ because of different iterations and translations and such. Some believe their characterization changed at some point within the Middle Ages and Dante’s Inferno, but no one can

Tushi was a cat who could have been an ocean.
She could have been other things as well like a blanket that smelled of warmth, a puddle in your green yards, a broken wristwatch, a collage of photographs never taken together, a pair of socks or even, a grey, cloudy afternoon.
But she mustve been destined to be an ocean. Its unquestionable.
Tushi wasnt always a cat. Before becoming a cat, she had been a balloon. Red with yellow-freckles. Hydrogen filled. After the kid had left the string that connected the balloon in a childs hand with the eternal call of the ether, calling Tushi. After the kid had let go of that divine connection, like children always do. After the inflicted independence. Tushi had flown higher.

Review of Chapter Two
By Stephenie Meyer
Okay, so I'm back again with the second chapter of Twilight.
Just like last time, I'm going to start off by saying that I'm going into this with a perspective that may be harsh, too critical and possibly laced with more F-bombs than an Eminem song. I'm giving you the view of Twilight as raw from me as possible. This is also just for fun guys. I'm not torturing myself too much, because I love to rant and rave like the next bastard and you like to be entertained. Don't lie. Fuckers.
Last time I started on the book with the preface and chapter one; introducing the character Bella and a brief glimpse of Edward Cullen. Bella is "new" to Forksdespite being from Forks and visiting every summer for fourteen years. Her first day of school and run-in with the teen heart throb Edward Cullen has left her off in the previous chapter as having a break down in her little go-go mobile.

On the middle of November
When I can still remember
The time I realized
I was mesmerized
He's stubborn and carefree
And also likes teasing me
I punch him as if he's a foe
But I wonder why I can't let go
But he's my best pal
And I'm the tough gal
He listens to me pretty well
As the sweet man-hating bell
My buddy's always near
But he's too deaf just to hear
The sound I keep on making
For him to know I'm reaching
Yet I know he wouldn't bring
A lovely diamond ring
For he's just too blind
To see love from behind

This treasure of love,
I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you,

You bring a joy to my heart,
I've never felt before,
with each touch of your heart,
I love you more and more.
Whenever we say goodbye,
whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly,
deep inside my heart.
So these seven words,
I pray you hold true,

I will Love You."

I'm so happy when we're together
And hate when I have to leave
If I could spend forever in you arms
Everytime I see you
I feel the need to kiss you
Where your fingers touch my body
They leave waves of pleasure in their wake
When our bodies are intertwined
Everything else seems so trivial
Hold me tightly
And don't let go
Let me stay in this moment forever

"Why are you up so early cooking then?"
There was long silence before Akil simply replied, "Because I am supposed to."
Kyle blinked a couple times, his still groggy brain taking longer than normal to register the sentence.

It might be all of a sudden that we became friends with a reason,
But I'll end it up in a same way yet before it's too late.

So I won't be a hindrance or burden, give you so much pain & suffering that you've been through in your life.

He could be quite silly, with his love of cute things, his strange habit of adding "aru" to his sentences when he was in a humorous mood and crying "Aiyah!" when he was exasperated or distressed, and the way he would sometimes pout when something went wrong, but he also had a side of his personality that spoke of regality and strength, which could be seen in the proud way he held his head, his impossible grace and poise, which could only be attained over a four thousand year lifespan, even the way his long dark hair flowed behind him like black silken ribbons on windy days.

Shino liked exploring. He loved it so much that he spent every holiday and free day out somewhere, wandering through a forest or a more or less hidden valley.
Today he had driven to a small village, called Riverwood, near a deep forest. He had rented a room in the village inn. Then he had packed a backpack and went out into the fields on his way to the forest.
As always he had taken no map or other orientating item with him. His friends called him mad and crazy, because he did that, but he thought it just made things more exiting.
Over the years he had gathered a lot of experience in the field and he was able to navigate almost any territory, without a map or other help. Because of that, he wasnt worried a bit about finding his way back home into the village. Until now he had always been lucky.
If only he had known that his luck would fail him today

I always enjoyed walking to work, because I always liked to see the hustle and bustle of the city streets. One store in particular that always seemed busy was a local bridal store that always had some bride and her entourage trying to find the right wedding dress.
I must admit that the whole process was rather confusing to me. Why people would pay thousand
