A change is as good a vacationJack Ryder was a television reporter, and he liked to think he was a good one. Considering his gross earnings he didnt think he was too far off in his opinion. If you asked anyone else most would probably agree. His journalistic integrity (which most critics would consider an oxymoron) was intact. He always reported the facts as he knew them, tried to present both sides of an argument where possible and never made up facts just for a story. If some people considered him arrogant, that was expected when you got good enough, and if he was somewhat of a workaholic, well, thats what you need to be to get anywhere in this day and age.A change is as good a vacation7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

He had been resting on a branch, and now he stood on the same branch to try to see what was coming. He had a pretty good idea, though. Whatever it was walked on two legs. Not many things in the jungle walked on two legs. It basically boiled down to the man himself, the woman asleep higher in the tree in a hidden nook, and the intruders.
They were back.
The man leapt to a higher branch, which he caught in his hands, swinging his body up until he was crouching on the branch. He leapt to a branch above and another. He kept heading up until he was at the highest branch in the tree. He moved into a standing position and looked in the direction he had heard the noise.
He could see the men, moving in single file through the tall grass. They hadn't yet reached the edge of the jungle itself. They were about forty-five minutes from the man's presen

Do not fear for forsaken plight,
Let know all those who fear the night,

In hateful hymn,
In loving lyre,
Embrace all of loves undying fire,

Remove all indifference with haste,
Let spread benevolence and grace,

Let generosity be a hush,
Witness our power,

Be thus abound our scornful pyre,
Let the heart be forever dire,
Unleash our power,

A really weak light was entering the cave from the cave’s round opening. Dawn had barely come. The cold was nipping and the light uniform jacket he was wearing had moistened from humidity. Shivering, he raised his pained, little body off the ground and sat up slowly. His breath was coming out in small white clouds inside the freezing-cold cave. Outside, he could hear the sound of the river along with some robins and nightingales that were singing for the dawn. He remained there for a little, blowing warm air on his finge

Ishizu sighed and stood out on the balcony of her room. She looked out at the dark landscape and down at the garden of her home. Looking up at the moon she wondered if anything was going to happen anytime soon.

Nothing drastic but just something thrilling at the least to spice up her life, her family was of high standards her cousin Isis being a high priest and all meant she didn’t have to worry about anything. If she wanted something most of the time she could get it just by asking. Thing is she didn’t want much.
This also meant she had suitors coming to her every other day. Ishizu didn’t even know any of them. Right off the bat she could tell that they just wanted her wealth and her family’s social standing. It sickened her how they didn’t even bother to try
