Peter looked away. His grandparents lived at the edge of a little woodside town, despite their son and daughter-in-law's insistence that they would be happy and well cared for in a proper retirement home ("There's one not a stone's throw from our place! We'd visit ALL the time!"). And so, when the latest generation of the Tsarevik family had piled into the minivan, the drive out of the bustling city for their christmas destination had been long.
For Peter, the eldest of the five boys, too long. It was bad enough that it had started well before sunrise, his parents determined to get there by morning. The plaintive whining of his young siblings at being separated from computers and TV had been sharpened by their early reveille, and kept HIM from catching up on sleep into the bargain.
But their complaints turned to giddy glee when they got there. It was as if they had ne

“Are you sure that’s all that happened? That’s all you can remember?” My father asked. My father was extremely anxious and he was pacing my bedroom nonstop. He was still wearing his button down suit and tie with the overcoat...a sure sign that he was upset, because he always took off that coat when he came home. Mom was sitting next to me on the bed with her arm around me. She was gazing at both me and dad, trying her best to remain calm.
“Dad, I told you everything I know!” I replied in frustration. “I just…woke up like this.”
“Did you eat something out of the ordinary last night?” My dad pressed. “You’re not on any drugs are you?”
“Paul, that’s enough!” My mom hissed. “I served all three of us the same dish last night. And I know for a fact that my boy would never do drugs.”
“Would you look at our boy, Stacy!?” My dad bared back. “He

Fear did not begin to describe the emotion that I was feeling as mom parked the car outside of the clothing store. I was petrified with terror. I knew deep down in my soul that I would be a boy again…that this wouldn’t be permanent…but I felt like if I submitted and played dress up like moms personal doll, then it would practically be like surrendering what little dignity I had left as a man…considering I had any left. Mom stepped out of the car and I got out with her, but I moved slowly to the store, staying as far behind her as possible. The overcast weather was almost a foreshadow of what was to come. Mom was already at the door before me and she turned to make sure that I was still coming. She gave me a curious look…and then understood the distress in my face.
“Chase…look at me.” I stopped and looked into my mom’s eyes. They looked somewhat sad…as if they were trying to understand what I was feeling and that she felt

When we finally broke from the hug, my hair fell into my face and I groaned in anger. Mom looked at me with concern.
“What’s wrong dear?” I yanked my hair back and snarled.
“I can’t stand all of this hair Mom…it keeps getting in my way.” Mom laughed and ran her fingers through the strands.
“Well, we can’t cut it…but perhaps we can keep it out of your face. Would you like me to do that for you?” I nodded.
“Yeah, anything!” Mom walked me to my bed and sat me down on it. She walked behind me and knelt down on my bed behind me. She wrapped her hands around my hair and pulled it back. She fished for something in her pants pocket and then continued pulling on my hair.
“I haven’t done this since I was quite young…but I think I still remember how to do this.” I glanced back at her in suspicion. What was she talking about? However, I really didn’t want to offend Mom anymore, so I shrug

“Is everything alright, dear?” Mom asked. I didn’t answer her right away. I was too busy thinking and trying not to focus on the events of the day.
After what felt like an hour of sitting in a hair salon, mom was finally driving me home. I couldn’t help but feel the weight of my own head as it felt like my hair now seemed so…different. The salon lady had been nice I suppose. When we walked in she was very friendly and asked if I’d ever been there before, and then took me back to get my hair done. I didn’t exactly know what to expect of course, but I wasn’t sure how to feel about the outcome. They pulled on it, washed it, combed it, pampered it, there were times where I thought my hair would be pulled out or something, but in the end, it was not. When they showed me what I looked like, I was kind of in awe. It wasn’t done up in any special way, but it looked a lot cleaner and it looked softer…clearly more feminine. I think sh

Scout let out a groggy moan as he opened his eyes, only to be blinded by the fluorescent lights of the medical bay. The side of his neck ached from the needle the Medic injected him with and his head throbbed with a splitting headache. He tried sitting up, but he ached all over and just let himself fall back into the bed.
"What the heeeeell?!" he groaned loudly, rubbing his temple to relive the headache.
"Oh!" It the Medic who responded, appearing momentarily by his bedside. "You are awake. How are you feelink?"
"What the hell did you do to me, doc?" demanded the Scout as he turned his head to face the older man. The Medic didn't reply immediately; he was almost hesitant. He tried to speak, but would stop, almost like he was trying to find the right words.
"Exhaustion!" he announced. "You have exhausted your body and mind, Herr Scout.

I walked with Naomi through the school. I didn't know how to feel as we strolled down the hallways and passed by the lockers and countless doors. On the one hand, I was with the girl of my dreams, and she was talking to me! I'd had a crush on Naomi for as long as I could remember and now she was actually noticing me. But on the other hand, she didn't even realize who I was...and I wasn't even a boy. Was it wrong that I was still crushing on her? Personally, I was emotionally confused and conflicted. Naomi didn't seem to notice this though as she kept walking down the halls.
"I sure hope your cousin gets better soon, Cheryl." Naomi said calmly. I looked up and adjusted my hat.
"What do you mean?" Naomi stopped and turned to face me, a dark look in her eyes.
"I know you don't go to this school, Cheryl...but you should know that Travis isn't the only bully we have to deal with around here." I narrowed my eyes at this. She was right...Travis was not the only issue that I'd had to deal with

I was already awake before my mom was. I was anxious and fidgety, I couldn’t have slept if I wanted to. I was going back to school! I’d finally get to see what people really thought of me! The thought alone was enough to excite me…but at the same time I felt a twinge of dread. I was still a girl…and I couldn’t go back to school and try to explain who I was. I would still have to go under the disguise of my cousin Cheryl. The sun hadn’t quite risen in the sky, and I didn’t know if I was excited or terrified of when it finally came up.
“No use waiting around, I guess.” I muttered to myself. I walked to my drawers and pulled out some clothes. I was still wearing a bra and panties but I needed to find something suitable to wear to school. The truth was that I was starting to get used to girls clothes. They weren’t that odd to put on anymore. With that said, I still wasn’t fully fond of putting them on. If I was going back

The phone rang loudly. I groaned and rolled over on the couch. My head was pounding and I was so exhausted and I seriously didn’t want to get up to answer it. I hadn’t fully registered where I was or why I was there...then I felt the weights on my chest…the hair in my face…the sweat on my brow…and it all came back to me.
“I’m coming, damn it.” I growled. I stumbled off the couch and leaned against the counter, reaching for the phone, still ringing loudly. I grabbed it in my weak fingers and held it to my ear. “Hello?”
“Cheryl? I…I was expecting Chase to answer.”
I froze in place at the sound of Naomi’s voice. She sounded happy to hear me…but also a little disappointed. I, on the other hand, was quite surprised. I didn’t know Naomi knew my home phone number, let alone would call me.
“Naomi!?” I answered after a long pause. “Why…why are you calling?”

“Wake up, dear.” Mom whispered, shaking my shoulder slightly.
“I’ve been awake, mom.” I answered groggily. The truth was that I had gotten very little sleep last night. My mind had been full of upsetting thoughts and nightmares. Ever since that afternoon when I had come to the conclusion that I had brought my whole predicament down on myself, I had been wondering if there was any way for me to be a boy again. It’s not like this was some kind of scientific thing, or some odd sickness that could be treated…this was something that I couldn’t comprehend or understand. Was it the work of God? Was it karma? Could it be some mischievous fairy had been flying by and just wanted to mess around with me? Whatever it was, I didn’t know.
I had been up all night praying and wishing until the tears running down my face, dripped onto my bed sheets and stained them. I begged for whatever had done this to me to change me back…and though I wai

I walked with her into the room. I was dressed in a fine red button down shirt and khaki's, and she was in laid back, yet lovely attire. I was Chase again...I was a boy again...and I was with Naomi. She smiled at me...and I smiled back. The room was crowded with people and everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves. Naomi touched my hand and motioned for me to walk with her. Her soft hand caressed my arm muscles and I felt a wave of excitement run through me. The world around me seemed strangely dull...almost like someone had caused it to go distorted...the only thing I could see was this image of beauty standing in front of me...looking up at me with those beautiful eyes. I didn't want to leave her...I didn't want to think about anything else but Naomi. Our bodies moved together and we found ourselves in the middle of the room.
"Are you alright, Chase?" She asked me. I nodded.
"Of course...why do you ask?" I said with a smile. Suddenly Naomi stepped away from me.

"Today's the day." Scout thought to himself as he breathed in through his mouth. Eagerly waiting for the Announcer to finish her countdown for their "mission" to actually start.
It had been a while since the REDs had won a battle against the BLU team. They were uncoordinated and refused to actually help one another while on the field, which the BLU team probably figured out and started formulating plans and attack formations to stop their RED counterparts. It was super effective!
"C'mon, c'mon," he groaned impatiently, hoping to speed the Announcer up.

" Already ichin' to be sent t' respawn?" the Red Sniper half chuckled. Scout almost rolled his eyes.

If there was one thing Scout was never good at, it was learning from his mistakes. After his encounter with the BLU Spy, he didn't bother with another new strategy. His was perfect as it was! The only flaw was that the Spy threw a knife in his back.
The next day, he repeated his route, jumping on top of the bridge and leaping across to the second story of the BLU building. The journey was cut short after encountering a BLU Heavy who was positioned in the hallways along with a BLU Medic ready to ÜberCharge the large Russian.
It didn't end well. While he did manage to escape by the skin of his teeth, his blue-suited nemesis wasn't too far away to finish what the Heavy started.
That didn't stop him, though. He was a stubborn son of a gun - at least that's how the RED Engineer worded it when the Scout reemerged from the RED base and repeated his approach into the BLU

Scout couldn't tell how long they've been traveling. He sat idly in his seat and pressed his forehead against the window, at first watching 2Fort slowly fade from view but then just blankly watched the scenery from outside the train slowly change from a desert to a forest. Was this interesting to him? Quite the opposite. It was very boring.
Every now and then he would look up to see what his teammates were doing to keep themselves entertained. The Pyro, Soldier, Spy and Demoman were playing cards-- it was pretty evident that the Spy was winning. Most likely through cheating. The Heavy had practically taken over the seat he was sharing with the Medic, lying down on the seat with his head in the Medic's lap as he snored loudly. The Medic was trying to read a book, but found it difficult with the Heavy's -well- heavy breathing. Scout couldn't help but wonder why the Medic and Heavy weren't harassed like the Sniper was after the rumor had

The BLU Scout didn't know how to react as the RED Scout explained to him everything the Spycrab had told him about his cursed. Although he left out a few details, like him being a virgin. Both of the Scouts sat down next to each other and leaned against the door as the BLU Scout tried to comprehend everything that happened. It was hard to believe, but then again, the intelligent crab he held in his hands was evident enough.
"So..." Began the BLU Scout as he held the crab close to him. "...The Spy was turned into a crab by the ghost of Zepheniah Mann at the Harvest?"
"That's what he said." The RED Scout nodded.
The BLU Scout looked at his RED counterpart. "But why? What did he do that was s-so-so wrong?"
"Well don't ask me!" The RED Scout snapped. "I don' know and nor does he! He just went over to Harvest one day to find a way a new way to f*ck me up on the field and then BAM!" The BLU Scout jumped slightly.

"Take in that sweet, all-American mountain air, boys!" The Red Soldier announced proudly as he stepped off of the train onto the Coldfront Station platform and inhaled deeply. "Ah! Beautiful!"
"Smells like one of my air fresheners after a typhoon." Sniper commented, sniffing the air tentatively as he looked at the patches of frost that speckled the station floor.
The Soldier shot a paranoid glare at the Aussie from over his shoulder. "Oh right, you're from the Outback. They don't get snow, do they?"
"Well, there was this one year when-"
The Sniper remained quiet, only shaking his head and sighing as he watched the pompous American strut off. At least he and the others had finally stopped making snarks about him being a possible homosexual. Perhaps it was the Scout's constant- but other wise random- outbursts that helped put an end to the rumor. It was still going to take some time for everyone to feel comfortable around him a

Pain…I was in so much pain! I rolled around in bed, clutching my stomach and naval, groaning. Mom and Dad had been furious at me for leaving without telling them yesterday…and so as punishment they sent me to bed immediately. I had stayed up late that night considering all that I had learned from Naomi. Who did Naomi like? Would I ever get the chance to earn her affection? At some point I must have fallen asleep, because the next thing I knew, I was feeling awful pain.
“Bathroom…now!” I winced. I climbed out of bed and staggered into the bed, clutching my stomach. I reached down and pulled down my pants and underwear. I started to sit down on the toilet, when I took a glance in my underwear…and screamed.
“OH MY GOD!” I slipped and stumbled into the toilet, feeling the cold porcelain on my skin. My panties were covered in blood, along with my pajama bottoms. Some of the blood was dripping down my legs, and just the sight of it terrifie

Did the Spy regret not convincing the Scout to kiss him while he was drunk? In a way, yes. Mostly because he then had to put up with the still drunk Scout as he slept off the vodka, but ever now and then he would jump awake and just talking non stop about random things. First it started with Scout talking about his mother, continually saying that he loves and respects her, but wished she'd stop acting like an attention needy whore! He also stated that all of his older brothers had different fathers, but despite that, they all got along like an ideal family.
"That is good to know, Scout." Spy would reply before the Scout laid down on the floor again.
The Spycrab tried to busy himself since it was still early in the afternoon. While the Scout slept, he looked around the room for the Scout's suitcase. It the least he could do since the Scout was drunk, because of him.
It took about an hour for him to find the suitcase, it was jammed in the Scout's close

Scout wasn't sure how to react. There he was, pinned up against the wall of the infirmary -without a shirt- by the Sniper and accused of being attracted to the new BLU Spy due to no record of either one killing the other over the months. The next thing Scout knew, the Sniper was...kissing him! Which was bad!
At first, Scout just froze, trying to piece together how he got into this situation in the first place. It had to be the fact that he wasn't wearing a shirt, the smell of sweat and testosterone must've messed up Sniper's mind and turned him on- and made him gay.
Actually, that was a pretty dumb idea now that Scout thought about it.
He began to panic and switch back to reality when he felt Sniper's calloused hands on his stomach, slowly gliding up towards his chest as he tried probing his tongue into Scout's mouth.

By reflex, Scout's free hand felt around the Medic's desk. He took hold of the first object he could get his

The Spycrab awoke to annoying trilling of off-key whistling, followed by the heavy footsteps. He cursed to himself when he realized the sun hasn't even risen and already the RED team was up and about. Yet another reason, he noted, why the RED team had gotten sloppy: they went to bed late and woke up too early. The Spy turned slightly and looked up at the Scout, who was still fast asleep, laying on his stomach with his face buried into the pillow as he lightly snored. The former-Frenchmen had to admit that when the Scout wasn't yelling or acting like a complete dick, he was rather...cute. It was an attribute he never would have thought about his enemy, but since he had to trust this young man with his life for the time being, he decided to change his opinion on the Scout. Part of him was mournful that eventually he would have to return to killing the boy, but that was how he was paid: to kill anyone who wore red.

The infirmary was unusually busy. Those who were injured from the impact were dragged to the Medic by their teammates. Most of which only suffered minor injures, which made the Medic's job easier when treating them.
When the retreat was ordered by the BLU Soldier, Medic asked the Engineer to check the status of the Respawn system. Concerned about the whole situation in regards to the possible scarring on his patients. After that incident with the new BLU Spy involving a talking crab, the Medic made sure to be more aware of physical damage done before the Respawn system is switched on and off.
It was a cruel twist of science and other unexplainable martial involving that machine. It would always switch off when the end of the battle was announced. Those who have received injuries before ceasefire was called, ended up with scars when healed, unlike those who were healed during battle. While it was rare for that to happen, it was s

The BLU Scout was practically tripping over himself as he scrambled throughout the base. With the BLU team on a losing side for the day, the base wasn't as active as it usually was, which made his journey a little easier. His teammates moved out of his way, but while he wasn't aware of it shot him looks of disgust and disappointment as he ran past them. While they wouldn't openly admit it, they blamed the young Scout for today's loss.
The BLU Soldier acted as the BLU team's leader, if anything was to be discussed, announced or reported, it was with him. No exceptions. Scout figured what happened between him and the RED Scout was worth telling his fellow American. With the sudden disappearance of their BLU Spy, any information relating to him was valuable...at least to the BLU Scout it was.

That didn't stop him from shivering thought of the bullet shooting through the back of his head and exiting out through his forehead, he swore he could still feel the bullet in his head.

Scout almost jumped out of his skin, letting out an alarmed yell as he sidled up to the nearest locker of the Spawn room. It was the RED Engineer, sitting on the benches and looking a bit depressed.

"I can't believe your plan worked," Scout said to the RED Spy as the suave man exited the shower room, smelling fresh and in a clean red suit. "The BLU Scout was really pissed about it."
"Was there really any doubt?" the Spy snorted, pausing at the door as the Scout walked up to his own locker.
