the duck and the knight chapter 1
CHAPTER 1:going back to their true selves
Once upon a time there was a man who dyed. The man enjoyed writing tragic stories, but ironically none of them pleased him. One day he decided to grab a duck, a knight, a prince ,and a raven princess to create a story. In the end the characters he thought were bound to produce tragic happenings ended up controlling there own story. And so the man gave up on them, but destiny had the last laugh. Is it that now a new evil force will control their lives.
It was close to sun set and Fakir was still walking around in circles around the room and Duck following him."Come on Fakir!" she demanded "Idiot! do you know how dangerous this is?" he said worried "Oh! don't worry! everything will be just fine!" she said. He stared at her, for he wasn't so sure."Please Fakir? its just a little story!" she said with those cute puppy eyes that no one can resist. "Alright! lets give this a shot!" he said confident.
And so he wrote:

"Headmaster," Snape matched his stride to that of Dumbledore. "Might I ask a question?"
They were on their way to the Great Hall for the start of the year feast.
"You have already asked one." He chuckled. "But, you may ask another."
"Where is the final protection for the stone?"
"It shall be revealed in time." He replied.
"Yes, sir." Snape dropped the subject. "There is something else that well, makes me uneasy." He confessed.
"What would that be, Severus?" Dumbledore looked at him, the same quizzical look on his face that he had worn earlier.
"First, why bother with all of the enchantments if there is a back door to the chamber where the stone is hidden?"
"Ah." Dumbledore smiled knowingly. "That doorway can only be opened by the headmaster. I'm not really sure why. It is one of Hogwarts' many secrets, I suppose."
"Also," Snape took a deep breath. "I must bring some suspicious behaviour to light. Professor Quirrell was acting very odd down in the chambers." He glanced at Dumbledo

The griffin jumped out of the way, and Snape stepped on to the rotating staircase, looking upwards, toward his destination the Headmaster's office. He carried a moderately small box in one hand, and a scroll in the other.
He reached the top of the stairs, and tapped on the door.
"Come." Dumbledore's voice filtered through the wood. Snape pushed the door open, and found himself facing five professors and the gamekeeper.
"Ah, Severus," Dumbledore looked at him over the rims of his half-moon glasses. "You're the last one." He motioned to the others standing around his desk.
Each carried a package. Hagrid held a small box with holes punched in the top, and it emitted barking sounds every few moments. Sprout was standing very still, holding what looked like a Devil's Snare. Flitwick carried a box full of keys, three broomsticks lay on the ground at his feet. McGonagall held a large wizard chess set in her hands, and Quirrell held a box similar to Hagrid's but

"Well ragazza, it's about time you got up." You bolt out of the bed you were in, only to collapse as a wave of nausea and dizziness hits you. You braced yourself for impact, only to have arms circle around you, catching you several centimeters from the ground. You slowly turned your head around, and were met by two dark golden eyes.
"Careful now (name)."
The mafia man you 'met' yesterday pulled you upright. "You were doing so well two days ago. What happened now?" he smirked.
You pulled out a sarcastic face. "Well Lovino, I only got drugged and- wait what? Two DAYS?"
You looked wildly around yourself.
"Where the heck am I?" you yelled.
The grin on the Italian's face widened.
"My house, of course."
You frowned at this, contemplating your situation. Your stomach interrupted your train of thought
Romanoxreader: Underworld 8The next two days went by in a rush. Your training with Ludwig was all too intense, and it got to the point where you were dozing off over your meals. Then you were back to shooting, sprinting, and even knife-fighting. You had even taken to hiding from the tall German to take a break once in a while.Romanoxreader: Underworld 84 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
With all this work, you had forgotten that Lovino and his men were due to leave soon. You were reminded over dinner, they day before they had to leave.
"Ludwig. Did you contact Zwingli about our order?" Lovino asked.
The blonde nodded. "We can pick them up right before we catch our plane."
Plane? You looked up from your pasta. "Where are you guys going again?"
"We're going to Greece!" Feliciano piped up.
"Seriously?!" You had always loved the mythology and was fascinated by the architecture there for as long as you could remember.
Before you knew it, you blurted out, "Can I go with you?"
Antonio smiled at you. "Well why not chic-"
Everybody at the table looked towards the
RomanoxReader: Underworld 14A short while later, you neatly parked a short distance away from Lovino's jet. You were grinning broadly, and the mob boss was looking over at you with an amused expression on his face.RomanoxReader: Underworld 143 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You are full of surprises, aren't you?" he chuckled, ruffling your already-messy-from-the-wind hair.
You jerked his hand off with a toss of your head and fixed your hair quickly.
"You know it!" you said with a wink.
Then your face fell a bit when you remembered what you guys were faced with. You sighed and slumped back into the seat.
"You know he's fine, right? Besides, he looks a lot different than he did when Honda took him last time. They won't know what the hell is happening," Lovino murmured, trying to console you.
You shook your head slightly and snapped out of it, sitting straight up.
"Yup! I'm sure he's fine I'm just kind of nervous is all "
The Italian nodded and got out of the car, quickly making his way towards your door and yanking it open for you. He gave you a small smile and
Romanoxreader: Underworld 9You woke up to a light pressure on your face. You groaned a bit before turned onto your side. You wanted to sleep. Suddenly, you felt a finger poke your cheek. You swatted at it.Romanoxreader: Underworld 94 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Go away, you grumbled, burying your head into your blanket.
"Really (name)? I just wanted to say goodbye before I left.." a voice chuckled near your ear.
At that, your eyes shot open and were met by golden brown eyes that were very close to your face.
You scrambled backwards, and hit your head against the wall.
Lovino laughed softly. "Well good morning to you too (name)."
He sat down lightly on your bed.
"Here, let me see."
Gentle hands ran over your head, pulling you close, your heart skipped a beat, and you felt yourself blushing at your proximity to the Italian.
"I'm fine Lovino! Really!" you tried to shake his hand off, but failed. To be honest, you weren't trying that hard. Lovino could tell, and wrapped his arms around your neck and pulled so that he could give you a hug.
"I think I
RomanoxReader: Underworld 15You flopped onto the couch and sighed. You've had a long day- you had been working about in the kitchen, making some dinner for Lovino and his men since they were out working. They always said you didn't have to, but you wanted to, as a bit of a thank you.RomanoxReader: Underworld 153 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
As you rested, you reflected on what your life had been like ever since you met the Mafia men. It was always interesting, to say the least, even after the conflict with Honda was settled.
If anything, the relation between the Yakuza and the Mafia had gotten a little more cordial- although, since you and Mei had become close friends while she was held hostage, that was only to be expected. The two of you still kept in contact, writing letters and emails to each other about just about anything. Even though you liked Lovi and his crew, it was nice to have a girl to talk to.
As you thought about having some female company, you grinned as you remembered the wish you requested from Lovi. After all, he did come back in one piece. You asked
Romanoxreader: Underworld 4Of all things, you definitely did not think you would be forced to take part of the criminal business. You thought back to your brother in L.A. with a wry grin.

Several days had passed since you had (unwillingly) joined Lovino's mafia family. During the first few, you had met all of the 'regulars' of the family, the ones that were closest to the boss, and so lived with him and Feliciano. To your surprise, there were relatively few that lived there compared to the number of people that could actually fit in the mobster's home.
First, there was Ludwig Beillshmidt. The only thing that came to mind when you thought of him was 'militaristic'. To be honest, the tall, blonde haired, blue-eyed, muscular German man kind of intimidated you. He would always be up at the crack of dawn, running laps around the mansion grounds, doing pushups, sit ups.. the list could go on for a bit. He always had a stern expression, like s

You listened hard, but couldn't make out anything- you could only hear the sounds floating across the gap. You jumped suddenly when you heard Honda mutter something.
"Wang. Do you have the bluff gun to use on Miss (Name)?"
"Of course aru," you heard the Chinese man reply.
"And Braginski, make sure she is nice and visible," Honda ordered.
"Da!" Ivan piped up cheerily.
You groaned. You could practically hear the Yakuza boss smirking at you. Well, you knew their plan. Act like they were going to kill you, make Lovino beg for whatever, then steal both you along with whatever Lovino had to offer. 'Well that's comforting," you thought sarcastically.
"Brother, tell me again. Who are the men with Vargas, and what do they specialize in?" you heard Honda ask.
"Hmmmm. Antonio Carriedo- close combat,

"Hmmmm what to do?" you mused out loud. "I know! I'll go to Lovi's grandpa!"
You quickly made your part to his part of the house, and climbed up the stairs that led to his room. After catching your breath, you softly knocked on the door before peeking in.
"Arsenius? Are you in there?" you asked.
"(NAME)! he yelled, suddenly appearing in front of your face.
Before you could blink, he had grabbed you by the arm and dragged you into his room.
"I missed you so much! How are you? And did Lovi go already? I miss him too!" he chattered, sounding a lot like Feliciano.
'I wonder what he was like before the Yakuza kidnapped him..' you mused. 'Should I try and make him remember? This could either go really good, or really bad Well, worst case scenario, he thinks I'm completely nuts. That's not too bad ' Af
Masky x Male!reader x Hoodie Ch. 4 : Hoodie As you walked along with Hoodie you realized he never really talked much, while most of the others were pretty chatty. He kept looking straight ahead and you being a little behind him, he didn't see you staring at him in thought. Apparently, Masky actually took off his mask every once in a while, but there wasn't anyone who knew hoodie's face. He was a quiet and mysterious man, you thought about whether or not he would punch you if you took his mask, and right then Hoodie turned to see you staring.

He just shook his head slightly and looked forward again. Then he tripped on a rock. You couldn't help but laugh for a few seconds before walking over to him as he was getting up. The rock he tripped over was about 2 feet wide and 6 inches tall "I could've sworn that rock wasn't there." (I am sorry about this joke

"Please Leo. I'll be super, ultra careful. I promise," Mikey begged, hopping from one foot to the next as he followed Leo into the dojo.
"No Mikey," Leo said shortly. He scooped up a handful of arrows and sat on the end of the weight bench to examine them, setting aside the ones in need of repair.
Mikey stood in front of him, arms akimbo as he stared at Leo's lowered head. He couldn't use his most potent weapon on his oldest brother if he couldn't get Leo to look up.
"It's not for me, Leo. It's for Klunk. My baby is almost out of dry food and his favorite canned stuff is gone. I gotta go get some more," Mikey told the top of Leo's head.
"Michelangelo, 'almost out' means there is enough food for the cat right now. April said she'd do some marketing for us and then leave the food in the tunnel tomorrow night. You and Klunk can both wait," Leo said without lifting his hea

". . .five, eight, twelve, fourteen, sixteen, nineteen, twenty-two. Twenty-two," Mikey counted under his breath as he kept his nunchakus spinning and continued to move away from the Foot ninjas who were tracking him.
Calling for help would have been a mighty great plan right about now, only he had to have a free hand to use the shell cell, and Mikey was not about to lower either of his weapons.
"I think you guys are lost. Aren't you supposed to be on a roof somewhere?" Mikey asked as his eyes searched for an escape route.
"It's the Turtle with the funny mouth," one of the ninjas told his fellows.
"Hey, my mouth is not funny," Mikey said; shifting as they started to try circling him. "It has perfect symmetry. If you mean you find me amusing, I do know some great knock, knock jokes if you guys want to sit down and get comfortable while I tell 'em."

Kagome rolled over and pulled sweet smelling blankets closer to her face as her slumber was threatened by the sound of gentle knocking. She thought of the Algebra lessons that she had to look over that day and the reading she should do. The young, comfortable girl groaned while her eyes were still shut tight, "Who is it?" Oh, I probably should get up.
"It's Rin. I have some lunch for you, Kagome. And Mizaki has to measure you for clothes!"
Kagome's eyes opened wide as she darted into a sitting position. She looked around the opulent room that she had been sleeping in and experienced that horrific sensation of reliving a traumatic night in ten seconds after having forgotten it in the loving embrace of blissful sleep. "Come in," Kagome said, remembering that Rin stood in the hall with a tray of food.
The door slid open and Rin entered followed by an elderly, thickly built woman with pointed ears. Rin sat Kagome's lunch beside her an

Marshall se dejó caer en el mullido sofá. Fionna se sentó a su lado y, cogiéndole de la mano, le pidió explicaciones con la mirada.
-¿Tú lo sabías?-preguntó él, con un tono casi irónico-. Porque acertaste en todo…
-¿A qué te refieres? –contestó la chica, confusa-.
-Me estaba engañando y me estaba vendiendo las cosas –Marshall suspiró antes de murmurar-. Seguro que ahora lo estará pasando genial con su amante…
