"Without control there is uneasiness, but it also allows for the opportunity of creativity and growth."
Chapter 4: Without Control
Elizabeth watched carefully as her younger sister spat out harsh and venomous words to their leader. The two had been at it for almost an hour. The conversation was going nowhere. Elizabeth only watched on out of boredom now.
"Control left me in charge of the Superiors." Camouflage repeated for the hundredth time, her Amazon-like physique towering over Albino's shorter, skinnier physique. "That means you take orders from me."
Isabelle, or Albino as she was more commonly referred to, was Elizabeth's sister, who shared the same feisty and determined attitude that ran in the family. She stood with her fists clenched, the muscles that hid beneath her pure white skin tensing. She snarled and her nostrils flared as if she a matador preparing to battle against a bull. "I don't take orders from a Class 2. As far as I'm concerned, I'm a free ag

"Are you *sure* you know where you're going? I think that we've passed this tree before " Jenenolite asked, as she stopped and placed a hand on her hip.
"I didn't think so " Scottius answered, placing his hand on said tree. "Perhaps we got turned around by that mulberry bush."
"Are we lost?" Farinmariael asked, grabbing ahold of Jenenolite's arm.
"Of course not! I've just misplaced our direction, is all."
"That's the definition of lost, Scottius!" Jenenolite growled in frustration. "I knew we shouldn't have let--"
"Look out!" Scottius threw himself at the girls suddenly, pushing them out of the way just as a flaming arrow flew past their heads and buried itself into the tree they were previously standing in front of.
"Well well well. Look what we have here! Babes lost in the woods " came a mysterious voice as three shadowy figures crawled out of the darkness of the woods.

He woke up feeling a small hand touching his bare cheek. He turned around and saw a little girl with a white stripe on her brown curly hair. She looked like someone he knew. So familiar face and smile. That hair and these eyes. She looked like Rogue?
"Chere?" he asked confused.
"Sorry sir. Ah didn't wanna bother ya. Ah saw you falling from the sky. Are ya an angel?" she asked curiously.
Gambit did not know what to say. This girl must be in the age of five or six. She couldn't be Rogue. Moreover, this girl can touch him. Rogue couldn't. He looked around himself. He was not in the dessert anymore. He was in a town and more precisely in a carnival. There were clowns and acrobats and magicians around. Children talking, smiling,

Gambit could not stop thinking of her. The image of Rogue passed out on the floor shaking, couldn't let him sleep. He was outside of the underground sanitarium waiting for Jean and Professor Xavier finish their diagnosis on Rogue. He tried to hear what they were saying but he failed. They knew he was out there so they were communicating telepathically so that they wouldn't worry him even more. "What on earth are dey doing dere?" he thought loudly "Why can't dey let Gambit in? Promise t' be quiet " he hoped that they would hear his thoughts and tell him how the situation goes.
The metallic door opened and Jean showed up. She seemed calmer that before. "Dat's a good sign, non?" he thought.

Her room reminded her of dusk in Cabo San Lucas.
The soft purples, pinks, oranges and blues that decorated the room are meant for her, Megan.
Emma's baby girl.
The chromatic scheme is meant to be comforting, calm. Peaceful.
But as Emma stood beside Megan in her room and watched her sleep, she was anything but.
Megan Katherine Frost-Summers was born one week, 3 hours, and 37 minutes ago.
At 11:15 P.M. on the day of her birth she was 6 pounds and 5 ounces.
Ten fingers and toes with blonde hair and blue eyes.
She was the cutest thing anyone had ever seen.
Scott doted upon Megan as if she hung the moon, holding her tight and warm in her small pink blanket and softly calmed her cries by singing lullabies in that soothing baritone voice of his.
Many women thought it amusing that Scott had this smal

I slumped around my small apartment, holding a book to my face. It was brutally cold for October, especially Halloween. I felt bad for the little children who were running around outside, most likely freezing in their cheaply made costumes. At least it was a free night for mutants. The ones with physical differences, that is. They could walk the streets pretending as if they had a costume on. As if they were like everyone else. As if they weren't freaks.
And I was one of them. One of the freaks. I had been locked up in my parents' basement for twelve years for it. I was living in a squeaky old apartment for it.
"Oh, God," I said aloud, setting my book down on the rickety coffee table in the middle of my living room. "Why can't I just be like everyone else?" I asked towards the heavens.
"There is a cure, you know." A sudden voice said from the shadows. I didn't recognize it. It was a woman's voice high pitched and quick, something like a squirrel's voice should have been.

Logan stepped steadily into the cramped room and his eyes immediately caught sight of Storm. "Hey," he said softly, shutting the door behind him. "You said you wanted to see me about something?"
Storm glanced at him, then stood up from her chair and stepped forward. "Meet Adrian Davis," she said, gesturing to the window looking in on a small room, "otherwise known as Control."
Logan turned and looked through the one-way mirror. On the other side was a small room made entirely of cement. The room's only contents were a small cot, a desk, and an old wooden chair. A woman with white-blond hair sat at the desk, reading a book.
As soon as Logan looked at her she peered over her shoulder, revealing her face. She was obviously young maybe twenty-five or thirty but appeared also very mature. Her face was thin and long, as was her nose, with thin eyes and lips.

"Why me?" Logan asked, his tense muscles showing every indication of anger.
He stood in front of Storm's desk and she on the other side. She leaned back in her chair and stared up coolly, unfazed by his evident temper.
"I give you orders, and you follow them. That's how it goes." she explained, with identical wording, for the umpteenth time.
Logan clenched his jaw shortly, but gave in. "Why not get Kurt to do it? Kids like fuzzy blue things, don't they?"
Storm stood up and leaned forward, hands resting on her desk. "This was a joint decision. You've been given a task. Now fulfill it." She handed him a thick purple folder that felt to contain a lot of crap that he probably would never need.
He took it, but before he had a moment to open it, Storm ushered him away from her desk and toward the door. "Now, out you go. I have work to do."
She saw him to the door and out into the hallway before he could get

With angry strength, the door to Storm's office flew open and Logan appeared at the doorway. She stood up to yell at him for the intrusion, but he spoke before she could get a word out.
"Lenore's gone." He said angrily.
"What?" Storm asked, confused and angry. "You were supposed to be watching her 24/7! What happened?"
Logan growled. "She got snatched... by Warren."
"Warren?" She asked skeptically and laughed before setting herself back down in her seat. "Warren can take well enough care of Lenore."
He glared at Storm. "He took her off grounds without permission from you or Hank." Not that he cared about Warren taking anybody but Lenore off grounds, but he knew that she would.
"Wait," Storm said, her expression serious as she stood up. "He took her off grounds?"
"Why are you so suddenly interested?"

The three cloaked figures ran from the castle, and the assassin followed.
Quickly they ran, into the woods, as if hell were on their very heels. Scottius held the rear position, ready to attack the man in black, should he try to attack them again. The darkness of the wood enveloped the trio like a shroud and virtually eliminated their ability to see.
But still, into the night, they ran.
"Keep going, Lady Ferinmariael!" Scottius Sullivan shouted, pulling down the scarf down from his eyes. "Stay with Jenenolite! Don't stop!"
The breath burned in Farinmariael's lungs. It was hard for her to keep running so blindly into the woods, but adrenaline pushed her onward like lightening. She listened to the sound of Jenenolite's pants and her grip on her arm was ironclad.
Suddenly, a bright red light scorched the night behind her like fire, and Ferinmariael stopped a moment, turning her head.

The sunlight tugged on the corners of her eyelids as Ferinmariael struggled to return to peaceful slumber.
Desperately trying not to wake up, the young girl pulled her makeshift blanket closer around her shoulders. Perhaps last night had just been a nightmare. An awful, awful, nightmare.
The quiet voices of Scottius and Jenenolite slowly filled her ears, as they talked to each other. Then suddenly, she heard metal scraping across metal, and she shot upright and shouted,
A few moments of silence passed before she was met with the perplexed stares of her guardians.
Scottius, she noticed, had a sharpening stone in one hand, and a dagger in the other.
"Good morning, Lady Javier," Jenenolite popped up from her place beside Scottius and walked to her. "How do you feel? You injured your knee a bit last night is it feeling okay?"
The brunette child flushed and pushed hair behind her ears. "Um it's doing fine, Lady Sulliva

He couldn't remember why he passed out. Last time he went to the sanitarium to see how Rogue was doing His head was full of meaningless random thoughts. He tried hard to remember how he ended up down on the floor. Pointless! He relied on his stick in order to stand up and have a clearer view of what was going on.
Shocked he realized that he wasn't in the sanitarium anymore. In front of him there was spread an endless chaotic desert. No sign of the mansion or the X-men nor Rogue! Suddenly, a picture of him kissing her was brought in his memory. T

She heard a srange noise coming outside the closed window. It wasn't like someone was threwing pebbles. It wasn't the wind or the heavy rain either. It sounded like a song. A war song. She was afraid of coming closer. Afraid of what she might see. "Why am ah'fraid?" she wondered, "Ah'm the Rogue and Rogue's afraid of noone". The decision was taken. She would check where the noise was coming from. She stood up from her bed and went ahead to the window. She opened it abruptly and looked outside waiting for something to happen. But it was too dark to see someone. "Noone's that crazy, wandering outside with this rain in the middle of the night! I must have heard wrong...".

Prompt: MatronPrompt: Matron1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
The sorceress war had left so many people without homes, so many children without their families. Edea had always wanted children, but feared having a daughter, of her daughter being capable of embodiment and the risks that having this unique aspect to them that it entailed. Instead, she opted to open her home to the orphans the war had created so that she may bring them up and give them the chance to live a normal life. Children were sent to her from all over the world and eventually found new homes or moved on to start a new life for themselves, to find their own path in life. Each time one of her children left, her heart broke as any mother's would.
Edea would never forget the day that one of her children had first called her Matron. It was a day that filled her with such pride and love. Squall had been brought to her some months previous, a shy and quiet little boy who had large, inquisitive eyes. He had cried so much when he first came to the orphanage and no matter how much she t

Time was such an odd thing, everyone wanted more of it, or for it to stand still completely. How strange it was that every living being on the planet had at one time or another wished that time were doing something different. Time wasn't physical, you couldn't see it, couldn't hear it or touch it, but everyone wanted to possess it in some shape or form.
For Edea, time was another matter altogether. She no longer cared for it, no longer counted away the minutes of her existence. She wished she didn't understand it the way that she did, Ultimecia's mind was consumed by time and her hunger to own it, to call it her own.
Since Ultimecia had relinquished her hold over her, she had returned to her home, the Orphanage she had opened to the lost children of the Sorceress war. All traces of time had been destroyed here, no longer could she hear the insistent ticking of a clock, reminding her that with each tick, her life was slipping away.

Conceived in the mid-1990s, the idea behind this project is that it's sort of a cartoon-esque version of the early 1990s NBC teen sitcom Saved By The Bell, but set it an all-girl's academy in an undisclosed period of the future....in other words, a sort of romantic comedy with a touch of J-POP influence thrown in for flavour.
