Was it courage young Desta displayed or foolishness? Deeply rooted was her love for this lifeless being that drove her, regardless of how one was to view or illustrate her actions. If I was to be truthful, and I shall undoubtedly be so, I found Desta's cause to be admirable and charismatic despite the unsafe environment this circumstance had forced her into. Here was a child, a sweet and lively creature, who would stand tall against the odds and risk it all not only in the sake for protecting her own mind from failure and loss, but also to shelter the one she held so dear. As uncanny as it sounds,
Elle and Mias: Chapter 1Elle felt her body being pulled swiftly through nothingness by an unseen force. Still unable to scream, the only sound she heard was her own heart beating wildly. A blast of air halted the pulling sensation and before she knew it, her bottom came to rest on something soft.Elle and Mias: Chapter 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The veil of blackness lifted as her surrounding came into focus. She looked down to find herself seated on the edge of a king sized mattress complete with a four post bed frame, canopy, and matching curtains. Several large pillows lay in front of the headboard and gladly welcomed Elle's spinning head as she collapsed backward.
To the right side of the bed was a white marb
10: Elle's RevengeElle ripped her arm free of the large sailor's grip as he hauled her up from the ladder and onto the deck. She nearly fell to the floor, feeling so detached and disoriented from the horror she had just witnessed that her whole body was numb.10: Elle's Revenge2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Mias is dead.
She felt a sharp twisting in her chest at the very thought, and she wanted nothing more than to crumple to the floor and cry. She looked towards the island, only able to see the outline of the cliffs and the glimmer of waves as they drifted onto the shore. Elle wanted to hurl herself over the side of the ship, to swim back to Mias and hold him in her arms one last time. But she knew there
9: Elias' RevengeElle stumbled forward onto the beach on hands and knees, just as a wave crashed against her. She fell forward onto her stomach, gasping for air as she tried to catch her breath. Her muscles screamed, her shoulders and arms trembling uncontrollably from the excruciating swim. Her legs cramped, needles of pain crawling over her calves when she tried to stretch her legs. But she had made it, she was alive.9: Elias' Revenge2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She rolled onto her back with a groan, her whole body protesting. Staring up at the starry sky, Elle pushed the damp hair that clung to her cheeks out of her face, bringing herself up onto her elbows. She looked out at the water which shimmer

Elle opened her eyes with a groan to find Thomas leaning over her, his little hands on her shoulder as he tried to shake her awake.
"What time is it?" She croaked.
Stretching, she turned onto her side and glanced at the porthole, frowning when she saw that it was still dark.
"It's just after dawn!" Thomas said, sitting beside her on the narrow bed.
Elle sighed, tugging the thin sheet more tightly around her shoulder. She had made it a habit to sleep as late as she could, not because she was depressed, she assured herself, but because it meant less time spent anywhere near Elias, and more time spent devising a

As I had professed earlier, fate is never one to dole out compassion. Whenever something tipped in favor, bestowing upon us the upper hand, it was always accompanied by a stroke of bad luck like a plague brought on by malevolent wishes. Quite personally I placed the culpability on one man in particular. After all, Ex had revealed to me earlier that Nightmare kept track of his victims via a screening process or something to that effect. Thus, the idea of Nightmare manipulating the balance of this very tournament to fulfill whatever malicious delight he received watching others struggle and wri

Down the broken vibrant corridor I paced, prudent not to stray too far from the classroom where Allen attended to Riddley. Where to go? Who to turn to? What to say? I was perplexed, lost. My heart told me to consult Allen about these issues and to investigate the walking cane I had left beside him in escorting my Tendon and bats out into the hall. Yet in the end, I settled on the door to my right rather than returning to my party. Fear drove me. I feared I was losing my mind. Would my words be incoherent to them should I attempt to explain? II didn't know.
The room in which I found myself

An intense orange sunset bombarded Allen and my vision as we emerged from the crumpled stadium. We shielded our eyes with our hands completely taken aback! Hadn't the world beyond this graying concrete structure been a dismal, smoky-skied, misty field? The alteration had come without warning! Oddly enough, the heat of the sun's rays did not penetrate our skin and warm our bodies as was customary. Not only that, but how curious that Nightmare's world, in general, should see something as uplifting and bright as the sun.
But as our eyes adjusted, we came to realize that this supposed "sun" was in f
