"You've got to be kidding me," Shawn muttered to herself when she and Junior stood in the doorway of their first classroom. It wasn't a big room, but it was certainly big enough to hold around ten giants, each giant desk holding a human sized desk on top of it. There didn't seem to be a teacher in the room yet, but Shawn noticed that the giants were standing on one side of the room, and the humans were on the other. No one was interacting yet and several students looked surprised as they came in the room together. Shawn hated the attention. "Uh...maybe it's best that you put me down," she said to Junior.
Carson nodded as he stepped into the class room. "Eh, right..." He made his way to one of the many unoccupied desks, setting her down next to her's and sitting in his own desk. He couldn't shake that awkward feeling, like he'd done something wrong by offering her a hand.
Shawn looked around, staring at t

Kyra was aware that she was considered nothing more than a pet for the humans back on Earth, but she had never imagined that she would be sent away from Earth for a year.
Her owner was sick and tired of her behavior and said that that would be sent to spend some time on asteroid for an entire year. It seemed like a punishment but Jason had explained that another 'convict' would be there and that hopefully he would 'knock some sense into her' because apparently she was in desperate need of discipline.
"You don't appreciate how good you have it," Jason had said to her, snapping her collar around her tiny neck. "I think that this will be a good thing for you," he tried with her, keeping his voice surprisingly soft. It was only hours ago that this same voice was screaming at her so loudly that she had to cover her ears. "I'm sending you here not only as a punishment, but as an opportunity.

The next day I woke up exhausted but no less humiliated. I just couldn't get the image out of my mind. Garrett... Garrett interviewing Luke and then asking him to leave. The flicker of annoyance on Luke's face as he was led the door. He almost seemed desperate to take me out. It was flattering... and I guess he didn't he hear me when I shouted for him to get on Skype after he got home because he never showed. Maybe he was just as annoyed as I was about the whole experience. Standing up and stretching, I climbed over to my bureau and realized that I was still wearing the same clothing as the night before and scrunched my nose.
Other than my mother's blazer, I looked like a wet, soggy rag.
Damn him for interfering!
His vibe? What did I care about what Garrett though of Luke's vibe? He was just an overprotective parent and this was the first time where I had truly been embarrassed because of it. Fro

It's the ability to shoot fire from her palms of course! the only issue is the main character, Esmeral has this ability, but because she is so young, she has not had time to control her power....

A shivering and chattering Sadaya (Sadie) Edin shuffled carefully through the gloppy mud. She bit her lip and held the small damp bundle of fur against her ice cold chest and took a deep chilling breath.
“Gotcha, Kotka,” she coughed. She stroaked the small creature with her sleve covered hand and smiled. The little grey kitten mewed pitifully at her touch, snuggling closer to her body for warmth.
“I think we’re almost to the RV,” Sadaya said quietly. “As soon as we get out of this stupid swamp…”
Sadaya let out a sigh of releife as the mud slowly transformed into the less gushy terrain of the forest path. She shut her eyes and punched herself mentally for taking this route. If only she had stayed with Madam… Sadaya laughed at herself. She’d rather eat ice cold porrige than spend one more minute with that witch of a professor. The women was a sad excuse for a human being.

Trying to make sense of the scene Kasia rubbed her forehead. She didn't have much memory about what happened the night before; all she remembered was having entirely too much fun at the party last time. She remembered dancing and she remembered getting in her car, but then nothing. She looked around her new surroundings, blowing the whole thing off to drinking entirely too many strawberry daiquiris, but there was something to strange about the home. It was a little oversized and slightly cheap looking.
"People have to stop shopping at IKEA," she muttered and touched a cheap looking bookshelf. "This thing looks like it was made out of plastic."
She continued walking through the strange house, trying to locate the owners. There was no sign of life in the home. She noticed a phone hanging on the wall, and she smiled to herself. "Oh thank the gods," she muttered as s

" .One down fifty six more to go " Jason sighed heavily as he set down the electrical engineering textbook and slumped back into his desk's chair. His notepad now held a full-scale circuit unit for a high end voltage electrical switch, hooked up to several others. It mazed around his page and he finished it off with a few labels here and there. He had been reluctantly working on that for the past hour and a half, and just when his spirits raised at its completion, they came crashing back down as he glanced over the assigned work.
"Uuugh .ill never get this done in time!" He couldn't help burying his face in his hands and moan in exhaustion. "Its too much!" he complained to his empty living room. Luckily there was enough room for a work desk right beside a bookcase when he first moved in, otherwise he would be in his bedroom or on the couch, and he was easily distracted. The large TV sat behind him on a far off wall and th

After what felt like a few lifetimes, her head finally burst through the surface of the pool. She coughed and gasped. Water spurted out of her mouth. Her throat felt raw as she took in panicked gulps of air. Kicking her legs to remain afloat, she swiped her drenched brown hair from her eyes, looking around with pure terror.
A few colossal beings, four to be exact, occupied the pool along with her. However, they seemed to have not noticed her sudden presence. Two of them were young women, casually floating around and carrying a conversation. The other two were a boy and a girl, children splashing around and tackling each other into the water.

It’s not my fault if she doesn’t believe me!” Talia couldn’t stand having her nails painted and would usually scratch it off, but her best friend used a special type of nail polish that won’t scratch off or fade for a week.

Despite Eres sealing the box Sophi could feel the change in weather almost immediately after Steven set her down in front of what was supposed to be her new home. What few holes were in the box that gave her room to breathe also sent in incredibly chilly gusts of wind, causing her to shiver openly. Reaching towards her small pile of clothes she grabbed a light blue scarf and wrapped it around her neck and settled a matching small cap on her head to cover her ears. She could still hear her teeth chatter, but that was it. She was still groggy from the whole experience and as she heard a large door open above her, she couldn't stop her knees from shaking as well.

Calder had never seen such a creature before. A human. A creature that lived just out of reach on the shore. His eyes followed her below the water as she sat on some sort of floating device. It looked like it was too thin to hold a person, but she easily sat herself on top of it. One thing he had seen time after time with these humans the past few days was they brought things he had never seen. He blinked, lowering himself down onto his boulder in wonder. In his search for something new and interesting he'd found a world he'd never seen the one above the water. He remembered hearing about a rumor of these creatures deep in the oceans, but this was the first time he found them. He glanced down to his beautifully blue scaled tail with slight displeasure. It easily distanced him even more from the humans.
He'd seen plenty of humans during the day, while he sat in the depths, simply watching those with the floating boards zoom over his head. He would have liked to thin

"But it's just not a good idea. Despite what you think I am, I'm not a human being. We're not on equal fields okay? Can't you accept that?"
He didn't answer, shifting the chair to look away from her.
Letting out a heavy sigh, Kyra walked a bit closer, but not so much that he could grab her easily. "And look...I'm sorry about calling you a criminal. I know that you're innocent, Jason told me so. And Jason's alright," she said in a hopeful voice.

“Garrett... are you fracking serious right now? Put me down!” I shouted at the top of my lungs. I struggled to get out of my stupid father's pocket but of course it wasn't happening. Instead, my father led Luke to the family room and pointed out a chair to him.
“Have a seat, son,” he said, motioning and then taking a seat of his own. “You'll have to excuse my daughter—”
“Not a problem,” Luke said. It was obvious that this was awkward. He shifted uncomfortably on the chair and looked around. “You have a nice place Mr. Nicholas.” He chuckled to himself. “Much smaller than a lot of the homes I go to.”
“Come again?” my dad asked, arching a suspicious brow. “You go to a lot of human houses?”
He nodded, shifting again in his chair. “I have a few human friends.”

Instead of bringing it up though, not wanting to upset her, he gently tried to change topics. “You keep saying ‘someone like me.’ What does that mean, someone like me?" he asked softly.
