Animum FrangitThis monster has never been seen, neither has its existence been proven. Yet its influence had affected many people's lives. It does not eat plants, neither flesh, nor blood for it has no tangible body. It is a spiritual being that feeds on people's anxiety, on fear, anger and frustration. The usual amount of these negative emotions being felt by an average human is not enough to most of the Animum Frangit. Moreover, everyday calamity, caused by coincidence are no delicacy and do not satisfy the ambitious hunter.Animum Frangit3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

It was a late Friday night when Inspector Fox and Constable Cooper were called on duty to patrol the cities of Paris, France. Normally it was just a usual report they'd look around and then go back to the office to finish their paper work but tonight something was different. They had gotten a call of a loud disturbance in a nearby alley way by some neighbor who complained that street kids were making too much noise again and she wanted it taken care of right way.

The Little SparrowHer name was Emma, and she wasn't afraid of falling. For as long as she could remember she had been jumping - always plummeting. She understood the laws of nature: no matter how high she climbed, gravity would always carry her back to the ground; gravity would always grant her momentum to fall and wind-resistance to float. She understood why birds had wings and humans didn't; it was because humans would just as soon leave, and they belonged on the ground.The Little Sparrow3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
They always called her a little sparrow, always trying to fly, but they never understood that she didn't want updrafts or wings, she only wanted to scale walls and scurry up trees, to test the limits.
She wanted to throw herself from rooftops and swan dive from balancing bars, challenging inertia and gravity and the laws of motion. She wanted to cannonball into puddles and see if the ocean caught her, or if she merely fell through the earth to the steaming, bubbling core. She wanted to lift up her arms in triumph, her hair

Six years ago the Greater Altalamatox Public Library put its small and remote home city on the map when it spilt out of the ether and onto the shores of its lake.
It's a building with a lot of history. Once part of a prestigious campus, it was last owned by a club of gents with a shared passion for illegal spellcraft and dimensional exploration, who used it to hide their howling voids into the cosmos and also their pointy hats and anything else they didn't want their wives to find. They never did accomplish discovery of a new world- or never had the satisfaction of knowing they did- but did manage one highly impressive feat which was to tuck the Library sideways between dimensions when the police came 'round to investigate. This was about a hundred and ten years ago.
The gentlemen, after their prison terms ended, never succeeded in summoning back the building. To that end they'd have to have known where it lay nearest to this world, and to their distress they were witne

I’m quite a dunce, but just for once, I knew I had the plague!
Two boils broke out last Saturday, when preparing for a date,
They blackened quickly, I felt sickly, and in a right old state.
I phoned my date – this hunky man – and said I might not make it,
Gave boils a squeeze, fell to my knees, the pain I couldn’t take it!
So, I went on my computer, googling symptom list for ages,
My boils were soggy, mind quite foggy and I was probably contagious.
The information that I found then shocked me to the core,
Pronounced no cure, would not endure, then soon fall to the floor.
I called my trusty Doc at once, urged him to come post haste.
He said ‘Don’t worry, I will hurry, there is no time to waste.’
Well, good old Doc, give him his due, he rushed round to my bed,
Looked at me, quite puzzledly and said ‘You should be dead.
This is quite the worst case of bubonic plague I’ve seen,

Cloud was fighting in his sleep and Tifa does her best to wake him, but as much as she tried she couldn't. The dream was too deep and the more he struggled, the more intense the nightmare became. The dream was tormenting him and he growled in anguish as his breathing became increasingly agitated.
It is said that when a dream is too intense, it's better to let the person who is dreaming to wake up slowly, otherwise the dreamer will not be able to distinguish reality and could cause a severe trauma.
Tifa felt helpless for not being able to help and stayed with him until he could calm down. Cloud on the other hand, was still fighting in his sleep and Tifa tried to reassure him stroking his face with her hands.

That morning, I got up very early and took a quick shower to start fresh the day.
As usual, I went to the children's room to wake them up and then headed to the kitchen to make some breakfast.
After the breakfast, I put the dishes in the sink and went upstairs to help the children to get ready for school. Denzel was old enough to prepare himself for school, so I helped Marlene instead.
After I said goodbye to the children, I headed back inside to start to do the housework.
It was a lovely day in Seventh Heaven and for some reason I was in a very good mood, so I took the day off and went to make a few errands before opening the bar.
It was almost time to open the bar, so I speeded up on Fenrir to get there on time. I was so eager to see their faces when they realized that I was back. I specially wanted to surprise Tifa, but I knew I had to be cautious, so I stopped a few blocks away and pushed Fenrir all the way to the bar.

The outside of the Opera House in Paris was always busy; carriages go to and fro from different places. People walking about, taking care of their business, people spoke loudly mostly of the different Operas that were preformed recently. Everyone couldn't wait for the next one; the singers in the Opera House were all talented and beautiful. There was even a rumor going about that there was a Phantom in the Opera House who was quite demanding about what Operas should be preformed, who would star in what role, and that Box five should always remain empty. No one truly believed the ghastly rumor but it still brought about conversation.

So you want to know why do I hesitate in taking something I seem to crave so much.
The question is: what makes you think you know what it is that I crave? Because really, I can't figure out how you're supposed to have even the faintest idea.
Do you really think that my biggest, unfulfilled desire is to take her virtue? Do I look so shallow and trivial to you?
If I really wanted to violate her, I could have done it so many time since I first had the chance to lay my hands on her...
But again, why should I brutally take something that already belongs to me? Why should I deliberately spoil my own possession?
Let me clarify this, once for all:
She is mine.
Her beauty is mine.
Every breath she takes is mine.
Her pride and her contempt are mine.
Everything that belongs to her is mine.
All she cares about is mine.
And so is her virtue.
I don't need to rip it off to prove that I own her, and I'm not going to take her against her will just because I can.
She cherishes her chastity, and so do I.
