Stranger Than You Dreamt ItStranger Than You Dreamt It
I have not had a face for almost five years.
Where there is now a hole used to be a nose and cheek, bones cracked and unrepaired across my forehead. I used to look like a normal man; I was not born this way. I was serving in Russia when this happened. Only a year had gone by since I volunteered when an unpredicted bombardment happened. I was just trying to do my work as a doctor when suddenly the sky was alive with rockets. They had been using the Katyusha's again, though I don't know why. Most of our tanks had moved out only a few hours before. I do believe that was what they were really aiming for and not for any of us. I do not think that they knew that our tent was a hospital and not a command center and if they did: God forgive them that they should not be punished harshly for it. Maybe they were indifferent to whoever was at the chosen posi

Yugi winced as his leg complained underneath him, he didn't understand why they hated him so much. He hadn't done anything to them Yugi sniffed as he turned into the park, not wanting to go home to the empty house, Grandpa had passed away a few months ago, Yugi was being watched over by a guardian who would check in on him every other month. But that guardian was the Father of the bullies. Yugi was so lonely.
The woods were always calming for Yugi, especially now, even though he was in the middle of a large city the woods drowned out any sound and let Yugi be wherever he imagined to be.
Yugi hissed as he sat on a tree stump by a small pond, the pond had a mossed over statue of a frog sitting on a toadstool. It used to spray water from its grey mouth but no more, the pond often dried up in summer droughts, so there wasn't much life living in the waters.
Yugi looked into the water

that spirits walk and churchyards spew their dead.
It isn’t true.
It’s said the stench of hell infects the earth
and healths of heated blood are downed.
But Hamlet lied.
The dead know nothing, the living less.
There are only poets with blood-nibbed pens;
souls hung between high heaven and deep hell.

He-Man dreamed he awoke in near-darkness with his senses, even dulled as they were, telling him that he was not alone. A figure stood by the bed where he lay – a female figure – but he could not make out more. He began to lever himself upright, but a soft hand pushed gently against his breast and bore him back down

Darkness, lit with the lurid flicker of flame; darkness and a sense of space as well – a great and lofty cavern whose height was illuminated only when the flames burned up brighter and, with their dying, fell back into deepest shadow.
The voice which spoke was cold, deliberate and soft; a voice used to being obeyed, to quelling lesser beings – and one to whom all beings were lesser.
“So, Hordak summons me, does he? Makes accusation against me and bids me – orders me – go to him and render account of myself?”
The envoy of the Horde gravely nodded his reply. “So speaks the lord Hordak.”
The being sat back into its terrible throne, a seat of power composed of the stark bones of many great creatures – a thing of horror and threat. There was a silence, sinister in its d

Yugi staggered onwards, his body thin and malnourished, the stick in his hand tapping the desert before him, his skin telling him where the sun was. The cloth tied over his eyes keeping them hidden, his skin most likely burnt or tanned, the cape -that he had somehow managed to keep a hold of over the trek- and the slaves tunic he still wore with one sandal doing little to shield his body against the heat of the open desert.
Yugi kept moving, knowing he'd have to find water somehow. He searched for rocks, tapping and listening, rocks in this place marked milestones or oasis's he'd learnt. Yugi thought as he moved, his entire being on auto pilot leaving his mind separate and as wandering as his body, his physical self searching for food and water in a dark world and his mind replaying that one day in his head
