The long, terrible day is done.
Night has come with gracious sleep, and
Sealed your eyes at last.
And though these tears
I shall not linger here;
For we will meet
After this dying season ends,
And embrace in
That knows no pain.

Nut turned around, startled. The voice was familiar, but she had developed a natural suspicion of everything, being so protective of her children.
Shu looked attentively at his daughter, taking in all the small changes in her since he'd last seen her. She still looked beautiful and young, like her divine nature permitted, but her eyes looked a hundred years older. Before he could gather the words to speak, she asked:
"Why have you come?"
Her tone was not ungentle, but the whole situation implied the wariness she did not show in her voice. She probably still resented him for taking Ra's side and helping him prevent her relationship with Geb. She might even think he was there to do her harm.
"I have not come at Ra's request, I assure you," he said, trying to melt the ice of her protective walls. Shu would have a hard time trying to reconcile with his daughter, and he had better assure a good start.
After Nut and Geb had started an romantic
God bless youToday I'm going to tell you about the greatest person this world has ever seen. He changed the world; he wanted to heal it, to make it a better place for you and me, for our children and our children's children. He believed that we are the world, and that we need to take care of it. He believed in change. You may have guessed who I'm talking about.God bless you4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Many people adore his voice and his dance moves. They are fans. But true fans, people who really love Michael, love more than his many talents. They (or should I say "we") love his soul, his beautiful, beautiful soul and his impeccable heart. They know that he is gorgeous in every way, and that he is not really gone before we have forgotten him. And we will never do that. Never.
We all know that Michael had hard times. He was for example charged with child abuse. Today most of us know that he didn't do it. Michael loved children; not their bodies, but their minds. He loved the way they behave, their innocence, how pla

She hadn't meant for this to happen. Honestly, how was she to know that setting a dollar on fire and crying, 'Who needs money?' in the middle of Geometry class was unorthodox. One second she thought she was on top of the world, and then it felt like a boulder had crashed into her. That was because the biggest kid in her grade lunged at her and pulled her down. Honestly, when do these kinds of things happen?
Elsie regretted it at once as she landed herself in expulsion and suddenly, she didn't know what to do with herself. She was lying on her bed twisting her head, looking at the ceiling in front of her. Elsie sighed and sat up, thinking of her future. Her unwanted future, she told herself. God help me.
Her punishment was to go to Texas. Texas. UGH. I hate the mosquitoes. She went there on holidays once, and she hated it! She liked her home in New York. Sighing, she leaned back in her bed. It looked bad, so for

give me a bit of your time
and I will tell you of days long past
for I have been here for ages
times beyond the length of man's memory
I have been here longer than you know
I was here
when everything around me was green and lush
when rains fell heavily
and the waters ran down the sides of my abode
when the great cold ice sheets were almost melted away
and man carved me as the Lion that I am
but then through time the climate changed
many of the humans moved to different places
searching for their game to hunt
and I sat and watched as the green lushness became sand
the rains no longer fell upon me
the sun's heat baked me dry
and the sands began to blow
filling my abode until I was covered
all but my lion head
so I still could see around me
I began seeing the return of man
and a building up of a culture
different than the one I knew before
cities being built
carvings on the walls
telling the great history of these
that built up a kingdom around me
great pyramids were built

Within the Sands
By: Jessica & Mikki
Prologue Part 1
Layla stood there in front of a burning house that was crumbling from the heat of the fires that consumed it. Her ice blue eyes wide with both confusion and fright as she watched the scene unfold before her. Her dark red hair dancing in the breeze. Her copper skin flawless...inhumanly flawless. Such beauty was a danger to one's self, but it was something Layla had. However, this moment, Layla was not in any danger from anyone. No one was in sight on the street she now stood on as she watched the house burn. The explosion that had consumed the house in flames caused all of the people who were on that street to run away from the danger.
She was confused as she continued to watch the flames destroy the house and melt the grains of sand. She had no idea why she was standing there. She did not understand how she had even come to this place. She had no memory of anything. All she knew was her name, that today was her birthday, and t
The Waitress on Roller SkatesI closed the door with my hip as I rolled out into the old American diner. I expertly made my way across the diamond patterned floor with a tray of fries and milkshakes. I smiled down at the couple who had seated themselves in the corner, hidden away from view. Laying down the milkshakes on the table, I took out my note pad and did the calculations in my head.The Waitress on Roller Skates3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
'8.95!' I grinned and watched as the guy took out his wallet and shoved the money in my hand before the girl had gotten out her purse. She stared at him through narrowed eyes, but he took her hands in his own and leaned in.
Rolling away, I brought the fries to a table of kids. Then, I noticed the covered stranger who had been sitting in the secluded corner. His jacket was up high and his hat brought down low.
I rolled over, twisting and picking up trays of dirty dishes all at once. I halted in front of his table and said, 'It's too nice a day to be wearing hats inside, s

Lily turned over in her little dormitory bed and yawned she was beside Mary MacDonald, who slept soundly in her bunk. Lily glanced at her watch on the locker and sighed, once again she woke up early. She looked out the window of the Gryffindor tower, where the girl's dormitories lay. It was sixth year, and she had been up late last night studying for the dreaded NEWTs.
He combed back her long, bright red hair and groaned quietly as she sat down in the window seat. She grimaced as she thought of what had passed between her and Severus the recent Christmas holidays. He had stopped popping up at her window at night once she realised that she loved James back. She did love James back and she felt terrible inside for it.
She reached for her elegant eagle feathered quill and picking up a spare roll of parchment, she began to write. It seemed as if she wrote for hours and suddenly awoke with a snort as she realised she fell asleep while writ

Meanwhile, at the house, Katara and Zuko sat side by side waiting for Aang to come back.
"Shouldn't we go looking for Aang?" asked Zuko.
"No, you can't travel in this state. He will come back. He always comes back," said Katara.
Just then, Aang walked through the doors. "Aang, you're alright!" Katara exclaimed, almost crying in relief. But Aang wasn't listening. His eyes fell on Zuko and his veins pumped with anger like poison.
"What's wrong with Aang," Zuko whispered to Katara, "He is looking at me funny."
"I don't know. There is something off about him," Katara whispered back.
"How dare you kiss Katara!" yelled Aang, pointing his staff at Zuko. His eyes were blazing. Aang was beyond reason. Zuko looked shocked. He put his hands up and backed away.
"Aang, I don't want to fight you," said Zuko calmly.
Aang shot an ice ball at him. It missed Zuko by an inch. It smashed into the wall.

I never know anymore
I am joyful of this gift
Flashes of these haunting scenes...
Hot air and the laughter of priestesses and dancers
Our sistrums and bracelets chime as we sway
The sand and white buildings against the bright blue sky.
My arms and voice raised...
...singing the songs of tribute and love
Shielding my eyes from the burning sun
Mawat scolding me for not keeping covered
The smell of rich earth and water...
Wonder and peace
Running through the marshes with him
Our bows ready
The taste of wild geese...
Cinnamon skin beneath my lips
Myrrh and lotus fill the air
Mut and The Lady of the East smile upon me
Cool nights as the crescent moon hung...
Where Nut arched above us as we danced in the courtyard

Thoth was smoking outside on the terrace quietly, it was sunset. Next to him was Re, his younger cousin, he watched sunsets every evening. Re looked at him and smiled.
"Mind if I have one?"
Thoth looked at him, he pointed the packet of cigarettes towards him. "No go ahead, knock yourself out."
Re took one out of the packet gently and used his own finger to light it, he sucked in and blew out. "I don't normally smoke, sorry for using yours."
"Oh no it's fine." Thoth then sucked in and blew a ring. "Stressed?"
"Not really, just fancied one." Re looked at his older cousin a little worriedly. "So...How have you been? It must have been hard to hear the death of Tana...It's been a month...I was just wondering if you were ok, you haven't really spoke in four weeks."
Thoth blew another ring. "There is nothing to say on the matter Re."
"You know that's not true. I can see how upset you are, Anubis himself said you have depression right now. You shouldn't be working."

You don't need a Wonderbra
To let your sexy shine
You don't need gold or diamonds
To tell the world you're fine
You don't need designer clothes
To prove that you have class
You don't need to know Houdini
To make the magic last
All you need is your sweet love
To be the woman I dream of.

I carefully followed the foreign man and his four guides through the streets of Egypt once I was able to find him. Sneaking around really wasn't my best...especially with my beauty seeming to capture everyone's attention. Though I was able to manage following him without being seen long enough to see him enter the palace gates and watch him go into the palace.
Pharaoh Amenhotep wasn't exactly a kind pharaoh. He treated his citizens who weren't higher than upper class poorly. And when it came to taxes, he always tipped the scale with his finger to make people pay more of their crops and jewelry. Surely when he passed to the land of the dead, he wouldn't be in the gods' favor.
The feeling that I had gotten about things not being right were certainly seeming to look that way. Why else would this foreign man wish to hold council with our selfish and unjust pharaoh? Certainly no good could come of this.
There wasn't really much else to do
Coyote's WifeMouse had never found a husband. Maybe it was because she was so plain looking. More likely, it was because she couldn't keep her busy fingers off of other people's things. She didn't mean any harm in it. When some object attracted her fascination it grew to an obsession, and she couldn't rest until she had it in her possession. She was so small and quiet; she could return and sneak into any place and no one ever caught her. The others were more than happy to ask for her help in retrieving stolen goods or spying on enemies, but the young men scoffed at the notion of accepting her as a bride. Mouse did not seem to mind. She drifted around the world, never settling in a permanent home, seeing interesting things and collecting stories. The pilfered trinkets were stashed away like buried treasure, forgotten as soon as the fascination wore off.Coyote's Wife2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
