One of them called himself Nero. He didn't know who he was working for, or why the job mattered. He didn't ask questions. Trouble came to those who knew too much. The other was a housemaid named Isabella, out on her regular midnight raid on the pantry. Passing through the parlor on the way back to her quarters with a loaf of bread and some sausages, she noticed a stranger in a dark cloak working at the glass case above the fireplace mantle.
For a moment, the two stared at each other, not sure what to do. Nero raised a finger to his lips to give her his advice on the matter. Then, because it was her habit whenever she encountered anything unexpected, Isabella dropped everything and screamed.

We left that yurt and stepped outside into the cold air. It must have been in the middle off the night the moon was at the center of the sky. Violeta was tense and I could see that she wasn't very happy being stuck with me. She turned around her purple eyes narrowed and her mouth in a frown.
"Listen here Nicholi, as much as I dislike it I will have to look after you." She said, her tone was awfully familiar to my mother.
"I will keep myself in line and behave."
"I'm not afraid of you and believe it even if you had something in mind I wouldn't fear you!"
"And why is that?"
"Let's just say I'm not a damsel in distress." I noticed that before. And You don't need to tell me twice.

"Mother, I'm still not in the mood for dancing. This is the fourth ball this month and most of the guests are young women from noble classes. I'm not looking for a bride mother and it's too soon for me to settle down."
"Dear Nicholi, even if vampires live for a long time, remember that we can be killed. It is best that you produce heirs while you are still young and can help the vampires to continue living. "
"I still do not like the fact that you call to a ball so that I can pick a girl just based on her status."

La contare desde el principio, así todos entenderán de donde viene este acontecimiento.
Cuando el hombre adoraba a los dioses, que le daban buenos alimentos y días esplendidos. Sólo una civilización le rezaba al lobo blanco. Este los quería con su corazón, ya que no les hacían daño a sus semejantes animales, humanos y animales convivían en paz. Aunque el sacrificio eran solamente los humanos enfermos o muy ancianos.

It shows us the life we can have, how long we can stay. The more you have the longer you live.
I live day by day.
A day is enough for me, a day at the time keeps me alive. There is more to live for when you know that there might not be a tomorrow. One kiss might be your last one touch means life or death. One lonesome hour can make you see the world a bit longer. You never know when it stops. But when it does it hits you like a heart attack. Everything in the last second you think about everything and then boom. It becomes dark as night.
But if we have all the time we wouldn’t live. To know that it will end makes the time on this planet irreplaceable. I live till the day my time ends.
Rehearsal"I'm Kylee. Pleasure to work with you si-No no no. Too formal." She sucked her teeth wetly, frowning at the door. The hall to the light wing had been thankfully empty, and for once she didn't have to stumble over what she wanted to say in person, and maybe she could actually come out with a good impression. She'd already hit two people on either the first, or the second meetings. A worrying trend she didn't want to continue, even if it -was- basically harmless.Rehearsal2 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

But this.. .this was something entirely different.
She arrived home late that night and was now with a new pet--no, he felt like more than that. Agnitus referred to himself as a tutor or some sort of sage of guidance, but he had just of a bad attitude as her. He'd be more of a companion, maybe. It was the last thing she thought she would've been doing that day. The said new "companion" had taken to keep himself in his solid form, resting himself on her purse and didn't budge as she opened the door and went inside to her apartment. Vivian glanced at him, snorting at the fact he was sound asleep. 'The old bird must've t

Michael raced ahead of his father toward the town square. They had just come into town, the first Michael'd ever seen with a street market. He'd barely given dad enough time to check on mother in the back of their coach before skipping off to see it. His dad was still jogging to catch up when he stopped in his tracks.
"Wow!" There were people moving in all directions, to and from stalls, doors and niches around the square. He could see fruit sellers, some kind of meat hung on racks, bolts of cloth and all sorts of things he didn't recognize.
"Michael!" His dad finally caught up and clamped a restraining hand on his shoulder. "How about you stay close to me now, or we go back to mom?" Michael glanced back distractedly, and turned away with a wave of his hand.

It is May 1, 2036. It is a bright and sunny day over much of the United States, which nowadays includes an Anglicized Mexico and much of the Caribbean and Central America. The sky is filled with colorful airships, and far above them, leaving glowing trails from their many little rocket tubes, the express fliers zoom on their globe-spanning routes. The colossal towers of New York, Chicago, Mexico City gleam in the sun. It is a day of Remembrance for the 385 million inhabitants of the United States. A great many events, speeches, Vitavision shows and "events" will take place, as people stop to remember the greatest crime in all history. It remains a controversial day, and there will be counter-protests by such groups as the Racial Hygiene Society or the Association of True Patriots, and grumbling by those who feel that people should make less fuss over the events of six decades ago when muc

The world is dominated by the Five Great Powers: the USA, greatest of all, and its dependencies and economic partners in Latin America, Japan, and the Philippines; China, a capitalist dictatorship under the rule of the Insidious Doctor's great-great-grandson (with his ancient grandmother occasionally doing a bit of back-seat driving); the USSR, which nowadays has an informal alliance with the US against the common Yellow Menace: the Third Reich, which glares at the USSR across the "dead zone" left by the ultra-catalyst by which the Soviets ended the Six Years War, and breed like rabbits by

In the year 2013, the world is much changed. Aliens walk among us, and powerful psychics help maintain the peace. World geography has been changed by the Pole Shift of 1993, which has warmed Russia and Antarctica, but cooled North America. The environment has become substantially more radioactive due to WWIII (1987, US vs. USSR), although fortunate that conflict narrowly avoided spiraling into full nuclear Armageddon. (2012, WWIV, the US and USSR vs. China, saw very few nukes going off thanks to the efforts of psychics and aid from flying saucers).
All cars are nowadays electrical, oil supplies turning out to be less than initially estimated: power mostly comes from 99% efficient, cheap, and environmentally friendly solar energy conversion, a gift from the aliens, as is the super-concentrated form of power storage known as the “sun pill.” The higher costs of airplane travel (the synthesis of airplane fuel being relatively expensive) has led to a revival

And one of the elders who stood beside me saith on me, for I had asked him ‘Who are these arrayed before the LORD and the temple he built in Diana, and whence came they and from where?’ And the elder with me looked upon me, and saith on me, “Them who are arrayed before the LORD and his temple, and the altar built he, are the saints of the LORD, for they are the ones slain, who washed their robes free of sin and devoid of temptation, in the blood of the lamb who sacrificed himself for them who sinned; and they arrayed before the LORD and are priests in his temple, and are servants in his temple.
