She ran, her heart pumping and the crying babe in her arms growing heavier. The pain in her lower abdomen was like hot fire escaping all over her body. Her legs fought her desire to keep moving and she hugged her son tighter. She couldn’t stop now, not now. Gritting her teeth, she broke into a sprint. Limbs tore at her face and arms, their wicked thorns biting into her skin. Above her, the red moon shone brightly in the night, lighting the path ahead.
“Only a little farther, my son.” She panted into his silver hair.
He clung to her, his tiny fingers curling into the folds of her dress. His cry hurt her ears, but the pain was a pleasant reminder that he was still alive.
They’d meant to kill him, this alien child that had grown in her belly—her child. Regardless of his blood, she loved him. He was hers, her son. Instinctively, she adjusted her arms, wrapping them tighter around him, and kissed his forehead.
Abruptly, the path dipped low into a ravine. Swamp

The dust was settling and everything was quiet. It seemed like the end to a story, but it wasn't. The battle, which had seemed to it's participants to have lasted days had lasted merely a few hours. The entire downtown of Mission City was in some form or another destroyed. From a chunk or two taken out of one side of a structure, to several buildings completely demolished- one from having two giant robots come crashing completely through them- it was in ruins.
Captain Lennox took a deep breath and looked at the four still functional mechs in front of him and the two seemingly random kids that had become embroiled in this as well. He'd seen a lot of war in the years that he'd been in the military; neighborhoods lain to waste, disturbingly empty twisted play grounds with blast craters around them, people who had been torn asunder, but now it was on his own soil. The signs that hug at odd a

The Thellisian Empire had become too bold for its own excellence and had launched an irreparable attack upon the far island of Mharvholan. The Haanta stronghold which was normally prepared for any assault Thellis could conceive to convey had not expected such an unprecedented attack after they had delivered such a substantial blow to the empire themselves. When seeing such damage done to their home, the Emperor of Thellis order the Haanta island's immediate destruction in order to quell such dissent from the northern lands and when the nations of giants had suffered their last, they had begun to plan their vicious retaliation. The Hakriyaa ordered that a battalion of one-thousand Amghari, the celebrated warriors of Mharvholan and Sanhedran alike, attack the eastern settlements of the Thellisian Empire instead of attacking the capital in the west as was expected.

I was sitting silently on the edge of my bed. I stood up and watched out of the window, the wind
and rain was just crazy. Wind bending the trees to their braking point and rain just pouring down. All
of a suddenly all of it went quiet. I could only hear clock ticking. Click-Clack. And then blinding bright
light flashed over the sky. I was blinded by it and i turned away. Trying to get some sight back. I
rubbed my eyes and as i turned my head back up. Wind had broken one of the trees and it was
falling right into my window. My pupils dilated and i turned away. It all seemed to happen in slow
motion. I took to steps and i jumped out of the way. Tree came with such a force that it shattered
the windows of the entire floor. There were screaming and moaning.
When i opened my eyes it was morning, i was covered in shrapnel of the house. Tree had
demolished half of the wall. I stood up and swept myself clean. I noticed that my clock had stopped
working. I just thought it was because of a tree.

Melinda is rushing around the house after hearing the news of her husband John's capture by the mysterious Cerveau. She goes into a drawer and pulls out and earpiece, pushes a button, and inserts it into her right ear. She runs upstairs to the spare bedroom and opens the closet.
"Tara, cancel the rally. I'm in a no-win situation. Even if I drop out of the race, John's still in danger and I'm not going to give that smug bastard the satisfaction that he had a hand in the outcome of this election."

* = Prawn talk
Ana felt the call of nature sometime after midnight. Maybe a long time after midnight. It took her a few moments to regain full consciousness of the events that had taken place earlier that night. When she did she looked over at the prawn.
He was still sleeping peacefully, though at some point he had moved and laid down to rest his entire body on the couch. Ana watched him for a few seconds until her bladder gave a painful throb and she had to get up.
On her way to the bathroom she heard a snort and the prawn's breathing stopped. She turned around to see him peek over the couch's arm, looking for her.
"I'll be right back, keep sleeping."
Ana disappeared behind a door and the prawn shifted lazily on the couch and started looking around at the walls and ceiling, taking in all the details that he couldn't enjoy a few hours ago for exhaustion and pain. A short while passed in which he kept himself entertained with e

Que agitado, es demasiada chamba. Cada noche es distinta, las farolas alumbrando las resbalosas y húmedas pistas, el cielo tan negro con algún titilar de alguna estrella lejana, el aullido de algún animal rogando por comida, la peste de los callejones y la peste que los habita, escondrijos de la peor basura en las calles, bares y prostíbulos que esperan el caer de la noche para deleitar el bajo instinto humano, violencia, robo, asesinato pues bienvenido, aquel es mi hogar, o si pudiese llamarlo como tal.
Así como en las mañanas, las noches nunca son para descansar, el ritmo de vida es también muy agitado. Y al igual que muchas otras, estoy de turno.

In the year 350,000 B.C., refugee scientists from Mars landed on Earth as their world was already begin to die. They landed on a small island
that was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When they had landed, they began to build a base and a small city so they could recreate their
civilization. By there on Earth, they realized that they need a slave race to help with buildings of cities and the mining of metals and minerals.
A team of the Martian scientists flew to the continent of Africa to find indigineous people to be this slave race of theirs, but the only race of people
at the time were Homo Erectus. The scientists captured a few hundred of these natives and thus began to experiment on them, and with these experiments came
a new race of men, called Homo Atlantea. Over the years, this new race saw their creators as gods, and some of the scientists would interbreed with

His first day at school was a day to remember, he was head and shoulders taller than anyone in his class, and they had to get him a larger desk. Hed sit alone during recess, watching the other children play; they wouldnt really even talk to him, much less play with him. The name calling and mean-spirited kids took their toll on his self esteem. He grew to have little respect for authority. The adult humans did nothing to protect him from the childrens jeers and provocations; they seemed to delight in it, some teachers at times would even laugh with the children. No matter what he raised his hand for, he was seldom called upon to answer anything.

A giant hawk-nosed salmon with the purple splotches of many years rushed forward beneath the school. With a sudden burst of speed he vaulted up and split the sparkling surface with amazing strength. Time slowed to a near stop as the fish rose above the others, his huge pink belly waggling from side to side, sparkling droplets of ice water fanning out around him. Aegia whipped her spear up to get it into position but just couldn't seem to move fast enough. She screamed. The sound crept like a slug up her throat. The fish twisted sideways, flopping and flowing and heaving its brilliant silver flank about until finally it walloped Aegia on the side of the head and sent her crashing backwards, arms reeling for balance, spear flying off into the sky.
Without a word, Atouk's elbow flashed backwards. It caught the guard who had snuck up behind him in the solar plexus and lifted the man up on painful wings into the air. The
