Look you, cant you bring the price down? I have a long journey ahead of me and I cant afford to pay such ludicrous prices for this.
At one shop stall, all eyes were on a young woman, the likes of which no one had ever seen. She was dressed in tall black boots, with matching black gloves, and a pink and black tunic. Her hair was dark magenta, uncommon, yet not unheard of. But what was causing all the attention, aside from her squabbling with the shop keeper, was her skin. It was a shade of pink, normally seen in spring flowers.
Im sorry maam, but I cant lower the prices; with these disasters happening, its becoming harder and harder to get enough to support my family, let alone stock the store. The girl muttered something unde

"He is doing a very good job. He and his friends stopped the Luna Tower and ended the Grave Eclipse," the masked man reported the latest events from the Appollo Lens, bowed deep down in front of the woman, rested his hands on the ground.
"And how are you feeling? Can you still fight for me? Will you fight for me, Arcanus...?" the melodious voice carried the question to Arcanus' ears.
A few moments the dark room was completely filled with ears deafening silence and the man wasn't able to move.
"So you want me to tell him the truth? The whole story? I don't think he'll believe a single word coming from my lips. It would be more likely he would try to kill himself than to believe those words. He'll have to see the truth, with his own eyes," the adept argued and fell on his knees in front of the fragile body, clad in soft, light silk clot

As Veriti lay in bed, her infant son cradled in her arms, she smiled down at him in silence. She had no regrets, save one, and even that was not truly a regret.
She did not regret meeting the masked, blue-haired stranger who had restored the Alchemy Well and returned prosperity to Ayuthay. She did not regret falling in love with him, either, even though it had happened so quickly. One look at him, one look into his deep eyes that were the exact color of the sea, one sleight little smirk from him as he tilted his head and whispered, "Princess," and she was his. She did not regret that.
She did not regret allowing her heart to escape her, no matter how unfit it was for a princess to give in to such flights of fancy. All her life, she'd been told the rules. She knew what was expected of her, what was proper. She did not regret crossing those boundaries because of this stranger.
She did not regret it when their hands touched, however briefly, when she was showing him around

It was sunset when the party arrived in Border Town, so they decided to stay in an inn for the night. They guessed that they'd want to be fully energized for what was bound to be a trying day. They didn't even know half of it.
The next morning they were up at dawn, bright and early. Tyrell muttered a few complaints under his breath about getting started so early, but when Karis reminded him that the sooner they set out the sooner they'd be home he dropped it. Amiti, Himi, and Eoleo didn't seem too happy to be up at the crack of dawn, either, but it was Sveta who was especially nervous.
"Sveta," Karis said when she saw Sveta twitch her nose and rub her ears for the third time, "You don't have to come with us if it puts you in danger."
To this, Sveta glanced to where the guys were discussing how strange it was that Eoleo couldn't equip a longsword, then back to Karis. She now had a faint smile on her face. "I want to come. It's not an issue. It's time Mor

I was only seven years old when he came to live with us. Father said it was sickness that had claimed the boy's parents; that I should treat him kindly, since he was in a great deal of pain. I didn't understand back then, because my mother had passed away during my birth, and I never knew her. But I would never forget the haunted look in those sea-green eyes, as he solemnly took my hand, clasping it silently in the chill winter air. I would never forget the promise my young heart made that I would be the one to make him smile again. That he would never again feel this pain.
As the months went by, Father explained more about who the boy was. Even then, I can remember how tired and worn his face had been, as he wearily told me, "His name is Alex. He's about three years older than you, give or take, and his parents were some of the last Mercury clanners we had left. We were all hoping they would have more children before... well, it's too late for wishes. Treat him like the bro

She loved him, and he knew it, and he was still nervous.
He stared at the door of the unremarkable South Pole home for what seemed like an eternity, his eyes boring into the wood as if he were trying to see through it. He couldn't.
He was stupid. This was stupid. She'd hardly seen enough of her parents in the past few months. She'd been through a lot. She was the Avatar. And he was an idiot.
It was really a dumb idea.
He turned away and his heels dug into the hard-packed snow with a loud crunch.
Her laugh. It reached his ears and it was music to him. And he'd turned around in an instant and pressed his ear to the door to hear more. Wholehearted and light, he grasped for those hopeful notes of joy. No one laughed like her. He could just imagine the wide grin and crinkled eyes from behind that door. And that imagination forced his hand. He had to see her for himself.
His knock was feeble at first, his knuckles weakly rapping at the thick earthen surface. He balled

Roy stared at himself in the mirror, studying his head for the gray hairs that he knew were present somewhere among the stalks of his thick coal colored mane. He'd called into the office, claiming a personal day. Since he hadn't missed a day of work in six months, and was caught up on his paperwork, he gained no argument from his stern, young, lover/lieutenant. Actually, it was captain now, he thought with a frown. Time flew by quicker than the deadlines on his paperwork, and that fact annoyed him to the point he could tear out the locks he was currently sifting through.

Hed walked for hours, he remembered that part, though it had felt as though he had hovered above his own tired, charred body. Charred? A fire, he guessed, that hed somehow been caught up in. The sand was surprisingly cool beneath his cheek as he lay there, mind and body numb with confusion and the clench of guilt. Guilt, he realised now, sat where hed always thought love would, just below the ribs; a solid pressure pushing to meet his spine and go all the way through him. As depressing as it sounded, that was all he felt right now aside from the sand, and sand hardly felt solid. What was worse was that he couldnt for the life of him remember why.

Roy leaned his head back against the headrest of his seat as they began driving out of Central. He had to get back east as quickly as possible and a car was the only way to do so. A terrorist attack made on the railways had delayed the trains for about a week. Now, he and Riza had a three-day journey back to East Headquarters via automobile. Of course, it was only that long because both of them needed to stop and sleep somewhere. Riza would need rest so that she could drive safely. Exchanging the driving duties with Hawkeye every few hours wouldn't be an option since he, though he loathed admitting it, would end up getting lost.

"Happy is he among men upon earth who has seen these mysteries!
It is generally accepted among historical scholars that the cult of Demeter and Persephone, or Kore, existed in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean islands long before the traditional Olympian gods became entrenched. Her origins are Cretan . Like Aphrodite, the mother and daughter goddess represent a matriarchal form of fertility worship in the forms of crops and nature, and through this the cycle of birth, growth and death. This myth, however, has taken hold of imaginations from its evolutions into the Eleusinian mysteries of Ancient Greece, to the paintings of Victorian Europe, to today, each with their own distinctive takes and emphases on the story. Perhaps it is the fact that we know so little about the original tale of Persephone the daughter of Demeter, goddess of fertility, snatched

They were all running together. He and all the other boys in his class, each one heading to their respective homes.
"Wow," one of one of the children cried, "Link, look at that!"
Link turned his head to the boy who just spoke. He had a hand pointing to an arbitrary place in the sky. Curious, Link glanced along the finger's path to see a red speck flying by the setting sun.
A red bird he thought. A Loftwing is flying up there. Link slowly came to a stop, letting his friends run ahead. Not only was it strange to see a Loftwing without a rider - let alone a red one - but he felt almost entranced by this bird in particular. To have the freedom to soar in that big sky It must be nice. Standing on the now desolate hillside, he glanced despondently at the ground. But, I can't go to that sky.
Determined, Link shook the sensation off and ran to rejoin his classmates. He allowed himself a small smile, but the red Loftwing was still at the back of his mind.
