Chapter 4 Destination: Sahara Zone
The team made their way to the main hangar, a hive of activity as the troops prepared themselves for the imminent conflict that awaited them, a few of the younger officers again showing a little nervousness as they went about their business.
They continued to check the planes over thoroughly, running various diagnostics on them, while others loaded them up with fuel or ammo carefully so that they were ready to go at any moment.
Tempest made his way to a small transporter which appeared compact yet streamlined in design; obviously one of the newer stealth craft which had been made for such situations where a little indiscretion was required. It certainly wasnt built to impress though, the black matte paintjob making it look a little worn, although he knew that appearances could often be deceiving
Tempest! Sir! Everythings ready for you to depart, sir!
He looked around to see

Chapter 22 Hidden pasts
You know Tempest, for someone whos been beaten so easily before you seem a little over confident in your abilities do you always get yourself pounded to a pulp the first time you face an opponent or something?
Tempest growled a little as their previous encounter flashed through his mind, the images of Chaos spearing his chest with his blade still painfully clear.
Well Chaos, lets just say this time Im not going to go down so easily
The larger feline looked at him curiously as he lowered his sword, a wide grin forming as he moved slowly forward, stopping a small distance away from Tempest as his tail flicked wildly with anticipation.
Enough chatter I want to get this over with so I can head down to your pitiful planet and make sure that your friends are put out of the picture as well perhaps Ill start with what was her n

Chapter 16 Strategies
Well then, wed best get down to business, hmm?
Commander Blitz sat down at the end of the large table, looking up as several officers as well as Das and Eclipse sat down around the table, watching as he unravelled a large map on the table before him.
It seems that we have two main fronts to tackle now, first the invading space fleet and the second the ground base we discovered in the Eurasia zone
They examined the map set before them carefully, everyone listening carefully as the Commander continued his brief.
Striker and Enigma are already preparing our ground forces to head over to the Eurasia zone and take down the base before they can reinforce their defences As its a similar ship to the one Tempest took down previously we should be able to use the plans Inferno gave us earlier to get in and blow the whole place up in the same way otherwise the ground t

Chapter 31 Between heaven and earth
Armageddon roared with delight as Tempest approached, raising his sword in anticipation of whatever attack Tempest would try to unleash on him.
My you are eager just like your father I guess
Tempest roared as he swung wildly at the large Mech, Armageddon deciding back off a little for now, the powerful rockets on his Mech kicking in as he dodged the attacks with ease.
Hmm its a pity really had I known youd survived I could have raised you up to be one of my commanders no big loss though Im sure I can just enjoy cutting you down before I destroy your pitiful planet
Tempest paused for a moment, working out his options as the large Mech loomed before him.
Destroy it? Then why did you send troops down to Earth?
Armageddon growled a little, refusing to reply as he activated a panel to the side of him,

Chapter 34 – The perfect storm</i>
Armageddon found himself stunned momentarily as he saw Tempest's expression, clearly unsure as to how to proceed, growling a little with frustration.
"You're a fool Tempest! You could have joined me and become one of the most powerful warriors in the galaxy!"
Tempest looked at him and growled back as he raised his sword and rested it on his shoulder once more.
"Enough words Armageddon… I told you… you're finished…"
Before the dragon could react he watched as Tempest disappeared from his view, looking around in surprise as the wolf was nowhere to be seen.
"What the…? Where'd you go Tempest?"
He paused as he noticed a bright glow reflecting on his Mech, turning around to see Tempest right behind him, sword raised as if to strike.
"Did you miss me Armageddon?"
The dragon found himself unable to react in time as Tempest swung firmly at the large Mech with his sword, a large gash forming across the chest p

Chapter 7 Aftershocks
There was an eerie silence after the explosions finally died down, the scout ship destroyed completely, a few enemy soldiers crawling away from the remains desperately trying to get to safety.
Looks like a few escaped somehow... Striker noted as he checked over the remains of the previously intimidating ship, quietly amazed at the effectiveness of the explosives they had taken with them.
Eclipse and Enigma were still a little dazed by the shockwaves sent out by the explosions, picking themselves up as they looked over the scene of carnage before them, brushing themselves down as they watched Striker charge down towards the enemy.
Well hes certainly eager, theres only a few who got out so this should be easy enough to wrap up Enigma noted as she walked over to Eclipse slowly, casually patting down her fur as she did so.

Chapter 13 Defiance
Come on Tempest, is that all youve got!? Das roared as he kicked Tempest hard on the shoulder, watching as he landed heavily nearby, the deep crisp snow which covered the ground softening the impact a little but taking none of the pain away.
Tempest gasped and picked himself up slowly, looking over at Das, his breathing heavy as he tried to refocus himself once more.
Damn hes tough; weve been fighting all day and I havent been able to register a hit yet Tempest thought to himself as Das watched him curiously, grinning still as he savoured the feeling of being in complete control of the battle so far.
Whats the matter Tempest? Out of breath already? I was just warming up
Das chuckled as he stretched a little, all the while watching the young wolf to gauge his reactions.
Tempest growled a little as he readied himself onc

Tempest continued to walk through the field, barefoot the icy cold snow beneath his paws seemed to be of no consequence to him, nor for that matter the wind and its icy chill that continued to blow through his fur chilling the bare skin below...
The darkness of night surrounded him, save for the light of the moon which made the falling snow sparkle a little. He felt numb, both physically and mentally now as he looked up above at the snow falling gently down all around him, gazing at if transfixed by each speck of snow, noting the detail and intricacy of each one.
The memories he had of earlier years where he had played in the snow with his friends on many a snow day as a youthful pup seemed so far away now, torn apart by those fateful events a few years back, his mind plagued as to what ifs and whys which he knew he would never find an answer to...
He no longer felt the cold, his thoughts blocked out everything el

We were certain to sit in as equal positioning as possible. She wanted this competition to rely on our physical abilities alone. It was agreed that we wouldn't bend our wrists or intentionally use any non-arm part of our bodies to provide additional power. As we locked hands a surprising bulge rose from her arm. She had certainly been working out since the last time I saw her, a few months ago. I wondered if it was in preparation of this battle; as I arrived, she was insistent on arm-wrestling. It didn't really matter though, I'm in decent enough shape thanks to my genetics, so my arms were about 13 inches. Not to mention I had stronger shoulders and longer arms. I guess my playful jab that she'd have to get into better shape to beat me at anything physical really got to her. Regardless, I had to admit, she looked great, especially in he
Dragon AXE - Dragon TFGoing to the store and buying stuff for the house is always a chore, no doubts about it. It's always boring to just walk past those countless shelves, finding at least 30 products that do the exact same things. It was like this with everything...especially with soap, or shampoo. There was simply too much to choose from, and most of the time it was just better to choose pick the cheapest one, or even better, just take a random one all together, to save time.Dragon AXE - Dragon TF5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Peter was just like anyone else: don't care who produced something, as long as he buys it. That's why that day, as usual, he just walked past every shelf, just randomly throwing something in his basket, not really giving a damn about the price most of the times. He still doesn't know why when he passed the soap and shampoo shelf, he had to stop and look. Something had caught his attention: a bright red AXE bottle.
"Hrm..." He muttered as he picked the bottle up from the shelf to take a look at it. "Wonder what this one is, looks lik

The stage was dark, and a lot of mumbling could be heard from the back stage.
Another day of work, she thought.
Another dance, another dollar, nothing different from the other days, it was her routine. A new bra, that was the only difference.
It is your turn, the owner of the place said, with his purple jacket and those expensive rings in his big, fat fingers.
As the lights turned on, her thin beautiful figure could be seen in the stage, her delicate fingers on her hip, her other hand climbing her naked leg slowly.
One dollar was thrown.
Slipping her hands to her skirt, her eyes closed as she takes off the pink satin skirt throwing it at the other side of the room.
Three dollars this time.
Kneeling, her nicotine filled breath was smelled by a young face, probably the first time he went to one of those places. He looked nervous, is daddy wondering where you are little boy? Or does he thinks you are in the library studying history? Didnt matter, a dollar more.

Burdens, Talents & Faith
And I am sure that God,
who began the good work within you,
will continue His work until it is finally finished
on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again.
We know that sin entered the whole of humanity by one man, Adam. And that we are not sinners because we sin but that we sin because we are sinners. Then are our burdens in life caused by our sins? Not individually, but collectively? Yet some specific sins come with natural consequences and burdens. Or could our burdens be part of the suffering we share with Christ; what we have to bear and still trust in the promises of God and cling to Jesus Christ as our Savior? So would that mean the bigger the burden the better? I can not dare to speculate how God choices who gets what measure of burden, yet I am taken to understand that it has something to do with the measure of our faith. So do we pray for a bigger burden and we'll get more faith? I believe it goes the other way. The greater our fai

It is you who reflects back at me.
And it hurts..
knowing you still possess the power
To burn a hole through my soul..
They say time heals all wounds;
But memories linger,
And scars remain.
Acid tears they wont desist,
Deepest fears they do persist,
Of longing temptations I must resist,
For emotions such as this must not exist..
Apathetic heart beats quiescent,
Emotions retract while I lament,
For possession of a love so ambient,

Endolithic Biome and Silicious plants
Similar to earth Diatoms in appearance silicious plants are microscopic single celled colonies plant cells which have an outer cell wall made out of silica. These plants are found in moist condition. They occur both inland and in the Primoris ocean (Orans single Ocean)
On land silicious plants can form silica stone formation in unique shapes typically pertaining to the species in which inhabit the stone. These plants make up primarily the endolithic biome.
The structure of the silicious stone are seemingly solid but are actually filled with pores filled with water, nutrients or waste products in a form of an ooze. With in the ooze itself are multiple microorganisms that live of the ooze some of which produce nutrients for other microorganisms. The silicious plants lie near the surface of the silica stone to photosynthesize creating spots in the stone.
Some are smooth and flat while other create complex upward growi
