Eyes In The Sky - Chapter IAnother day dawned I knew would be a lot different to the usual. It was another day of new students arriving to the academy. Just in the past days I was asked once again to be one of the chosen guides to show the newcomers the way round the campus grounds. Not that I ever had a problem with this. I'm always happy to see new faces around here.
But before I keep on confusing you, my name is Leroy and I am a senior student at the Beast Academy. My beast form is a male eagle harpy, one of the rare kinds. I still remember my first day at the academy. It was a rather cloudy day but the atmosphere was very calm and relaxing. This was the day I met
Eyes In The Sky - Chapter IIIt was Friday, the last school day of the week for some of the senior students, including me. I woke up to find Jake still asleep. This was my chance to claim the morning shower first before the hot water ran out. After that was done I woke up Jake. We would go to breakfast together every morning and today was going to be no exception.Eyes In The Sky - Chapter II6 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Eyes In The Sky - Chapter IVWe entered the massive hall and headed straight for the bar to get ourselves some drinks. The music was at a decent volume but still quiet enough to understand what the person next to you was saying. The dance floor, located in the middle of the room, was packed with people. It was really amazing to see just how many senior students the academy had. Jake and I were the ones who preferred to rather watch the action over being part of it. We got ourselves a beer found a table to sit down. A few minutes later we saw some familiar faces approaching our table. It was our friend Boris, a bipedal dragon.

Back at my desk, trying very hard to avoid the welcome ceremony, I was toying around with a chinese puzzle, forcing it into twisted angles and ends, when Jean huffed into the room carrying a rather heavy stack of papers, her knees buckled beneath her. I mentioned towards the pile and asked,
"Is that the new math syllabus, or your wish list for Christmas?"
"Very...funny...Just...where to put..." I looked around my messy office for a moment, considering a dozen or so ways to have fun before I delve into the thickness of math.

He swiped at me with talons nearly as long as my body, and it was a ridiculously close call.

I just sighed and walked through the open gates of what would be my new home. The building before me was low, only two stories, but dark and foreboding.

“Holy hell did that hurt. Did you really have to hit me that hard, buddy?”
“Yes. I’ve got some questions for you, answer them and you’re a free Anima. Refuse to answer, and your friend Coleson will have a meal.”
I couldn’t help snickering at that. “What he’d get is a serious case of heartburn. MY beast form can control fire.”
“Perhaps, perhaps not. Now, the questions.”
I heard papers shuffling behind the mirror. “What is your name?”
“Tony, my surname died when my family threw me out.”
“And your beast form?”

I was surprised to catch a glimpse of the sunrise on a Saturday since this was usually a day to sleep into. With Jake once again still snoring in deep sleep I went for a shower, the bathroom filled with sunshine. After that I decided to take a nice morning flight while the academy was still quiet. Once again I opened the big window next to my bed and stepped on the ledge with my bare human feet which after a mere second had changed into my monstrous eagle talons.

Pokeumans Chapter 7The door closed behind me. "This is it Brandon," I said to myself, "This is your chance to prove yourself. You've trained hard for this day. Now let's rock and roll!" I looked up. I was in a big room with four gold doors numbered 1 to 4. Each had a lock on it. I noticed the bottom of the handle of the key I was holding felt funny. I turned it over to see a big number 1. I remembered Reggie had said the first challenger was easy, but he was an experienced battler. I walked over to the first door and jammed the huge key into the lock and turned the key. The key stuck in the door, and it slowly slid open. I triumphantly stepped through the doorPokeumans Chapter 72 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Fortunately we had our channel open so we could communicate. “Tom, Sarai, converge on my position. We have extinctionists.”
While they came to me I distracted the guy with a toy I’d found in the base - a flashbang grenade. It went off just as Sarai and Tom arrived, while the rest of the team came up behind the enemy. Unfortunately Tom and Sarai had been followed by two other extinctionists. “So, what do you three want with us? And girl, you’d better keep your hands off that RPG. I don’t want my niece and nephew getting hurt by the blast.”
“Don’t tempt me.”
“Do you want innocent blood on your hands? Children who have a bright future ahead of them?”

Sarai was the first to notice. “Where’s Tom?”
“He survived. I sent him to the base before he could get hurt.”
Grant dipped his head in silent approval. Kevin shrugged. “At least one of us survived.”

I quickly scanned the area and found a munitions dump to my right, which I detonated with a heat beam. The blast caused a chain reaction that ignited several fuel canisters and then most of the base. I had time to feel a surge of heat before I gave in to the darkness, and slipped into the void.
