The Fall of Ariamis …Priscilla.
I will keep you safe.
I will keep you company.
Do you remember all those years ago – when we first met? I remember it perfectly. I was so very close. So very, very close to my last shred of sanity snipping. And then I saw a peculiar little girl in white dress – you. Your left hand was occupied by a tattered doll. Your right was wet from wiping your tears. Your eyes began to water again, but I caught it for you that time. I still had a shred of humanity left, gnawing at my heart's strings to care for you, to pity, and to comfort. You were scared by my face, but I mustered a smile, and told you not to fear. You told me that you were lonely, that you were unloved.
And from that point on, I never left your side.
Do you remember all those years ago – when I saved your life? I remember it perfectly. The cursed fellow had threatened you, and I had intervened. You were bigger, but still, I needed to protect you. He chased you up the tower,

Anor Londo. The city of the very gods themselves. The grand capital of Lordran, home of the Lords.
There was a time, when those who wished to even set foot in this great city had to prove themselves vigorously, whether battling and defeating their peers in the battles of Stoicism, or going on a pilgrimage through the fortress of Sen, to confront Snake men, demons made of titanite, and also a giant golem made purely from iron, rumoured to have a core made from an ancient dragon.
There was a time, when despite the legends and myths behind it, every human that set foot in Anor Londo all agreed that every story was in fact an understatement. Returning champions would talk of giant soldiers, fully clad in brass armour, wielding brass shields and halberds charged with lightning. They talked of marble cathedrals and keeps, a giant painting guarded by white robed blade masters. They would talk of the Silver Knights, the chosen warriors of Gwyn, armed with a w

I jumped on the table a started to charge something that was a mix between a shadow ball and an aura sphere. The boss smiled. I was suddenly lifted in the air. I was flung backwards and I slammed into the wall. My vision blurred. When my vision focused, I saw the boss in front of me. He started to shimmer. The human disappeared and in its place stood a Mewtwo. "You've got to be kidding me," I said. I was lifted into the air again and slammed into the wall on my right.
I was very dizzy. I shakily stood up. I didn't know how much more I could take. The Mewtwo floated over to me. I tried to use force palm. He backed up slightly and I missed. He slammed me into the wall again. I felt blood start to trickle down the back of my head. I suddenly flew towards him. I stopped directly in front of him. He was holding his arm out. His palm was facing me. He slowly raised it into the air. I rose with it. I was hovering slightly off of the ground. He brought me face to face with him. He grabbed my f

After an enjoyable day at school, I managed to get enough sleep that night to be able to walk to John’s house with him the next day. Just like my house, his was within walking distance, but from a different direction. Occasionally, we’d meet in the middle on the way to school and finish the journey together.
I liked going to John’s house, for more reasons than just him. He owned many pets, although only his Rottweiler and three cats had free reign of the house. In various cages throughout the house, I’d found a hamster, a ferret, a snake, two birds, and even a couple of mice! I’m proud to say that I’ve resisted my urges to try and eat them. His dog, however… sometimes scared me to death. He was one of those rare dogs that got along splendidly with cats, and I knew that, but something about dogs just made me want to run for the hills. Or the nearest door.
When we finally got inside the front door,
Survival Instinct - Luxray TFIt had been several hours since Peter last saw an outpost in the savanna, something that worried him as he noticed his bicycle chain beginning to come loose from the gears. If it broke off, it'd be a long walk back with no one but the local Pokémon to keep him company.Survival Instinct - Luxray TF4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Come on...I can make it..." He said to himself, peddling carefully, trying not to knock the chain loose as he continued cycling down the dusty desert pathway.
He took his eyes off of the path for a brief moment to make sure the chain was still there, and in that moment, he failed to notice a ditch in the path, obscured by the dust. With a cry of alarm, he tumbled to the ground, his bike hitting the dirt hard. Hard enough, to his dismay, to snap the worn chain on impact.
"GAH!" He cried out as he landed face first on the pathway, his bike falling beside him. He pushed himself back up from the floor, looking over himself. It was a bit of a nasty tumble as he saw, a few gashes along his arms and face, and from the loo

I awoke feeling very refreshed and energetic, practically leaping out of bed to greet the day. I glanced at the clock and saw that it was barely 4:30 in the morning, yet I didn't feel tired at all. I looked around and saw that Lucario was missing.
"Lucario? Where are you?" I called, looking for him. A faint whine from the bathroom attracted my attention: Something was wrong. I ran to the bathroom, where I saw Lucario sitting on the floor, cradling his arm with his back to me.
"Lucario? What's wrong?" I asked, kneeling next to him. He hugged his arm closer to his chest to hide it from me, looking at his arm with a sorrowful look in his eye. I kept my eyes focused on him for a moment before he relented and showed me his arm.
It was coated with yellow fur.
"What on earth?" I exclaimed, looking at his arm.
"I don't know. I woke up and it was changing colour." Lucario whimpered, looking

Curtis seemed not to notice, or he couldn’t read the bird headed creature’s expressions well enough to sense her mood. Or maybe, she considered, as a vet, he just ignored his patients normally and focussed on his work, as he did now, cleaning out the bloody trench the bullet had left in her hind leg.

If you can’t change just now, then you get a vet, you can deal with that. We’re grateful to him for coming out, imagine if you had had to sit in the waiting room instead?”

Joshua was preparing for what could be the most important battle of his life: his fight against the near-undefeated Sinnoh League Champion, Cynthia.
"I know," Joshua said to the attendant. "It's time. C'mon, Leon." He headed to the arena with his shiny Luxray partner.
Joshua had made a huge name for himself. He had managed to defeat all the Gym Leaders and Elite Four flawlessly. Cynthia was the only thing separating him from becoming a true legend.
"WELCOME, to the 2113 Pokemon League Championship Sinnoh Division Finals!!" The announcer pointed at the left side of the arena. "On the blue side, the reigning Champion Cynthia Shirona!" Cynthia silently walked to her platform. The crowd went wild. "And on the red side, her challenger, fan-favorite Joshua Alpha!" Joshua silently walked to his platform, accompanied by Leon. This time the unmistakable squeals of fangirls was in the cheering.

On my back I carried a shovel and a bag; items that were necassary for what I had in store.
I stopped in front of a grave, eyeing the stone marker up and down. I made no hessitation as I plunged the head of the shovel into the bed of the grave. I put my foot on it and forced it down farther,digging up a small mass of clumped dirt and soil and tossed it to the side. I soon picked up the pace, doing a fairly quick job of uncovering the coffin that lay so far beneath the earth's surface.
I brushed my fingers lightly and lovingly across the wooden exterior of the coffin, closing my eyes and taking in the wonderful sensation it seemed to give me. Then I used both hands to pry open the coffin,revealing what I had been longing for.
The scent of decay waffted out from the inside as the top slide o

It only lasted a brief moment before everything fell silent. If my heart could still beat, it would have been beating hard enough for the whole room to hear. I knew the girl was now just a statue, but surely not composed like all of us in this dark basement.
Finally, the silence broke as I heard the distant murmurs of the lady in black talking to her latest victim. Soon after, I heard footsteps growing ever louder. Then, everything was bright. I could hear her talking clearly now.
"I tried to tell you to keep focused, but no. You couldn't. Now you're stuck like this. There's no way the museum will take you now."
The footsteps paused briefly as she took a deep sigh.
"Ladies, please keep your new member company. She'll be needing it. As for you, I've got a special area for you. It's perfect for poor listeners such as yourself."
It was then that the two passed directly in front of me. First came the lady in black with a look of extreme disappointment plastered on

The only goal for today was to find a way to easily move heavy statues around the temple. While I could carry them, it would be slow and painful. Plus, the odds of me breaking and shattering one would be too high. I spent the first part of the day searching the temple for rope but to no avail. In the end, I ended up using some of the largest vines I could find from the pillars at the front of the temple to construct a sort of harness. Using it, I can tie several vines around the statues to secure them and then slip my arms through two other straps. This allows me to use my entire body to carry them on my back.
Still, it would have been very hard work had my hair not decided to help. As I put the first statue into the harness and began to carry it, the snakes suddenly wrapped themselves around the statue as well. The difference was amazing: my hair is apparently almo

"Hello, we would like to get a pizza for two and some soda."
The receptionist smiled. "Any toppings," she asked.
"Pepperoni, please," replied Will.

"Fine. Half pepperoni."
"Okay." She handed Will two plastic cups. "You're pizza will be ready in a moment."
Jack filled his cup with some Diet Pepsi, and Will got regular Pepsi. The two waited for a few minutes. Will tried to make conversation with his less-than-social friend, and Jack tried to go with it, but he was too absorbed in the music on his iPhone. But soon enough, the pizza was all ready.

A few hours later, Sam came in and found me sleeping on the floor. "What the hell are you doing!?" She yelled when she saw me. I instantly woke up. I looked at her and gave a sheepish grin. She picked me up and put me back in the bed. "Fighting Lucario and then jumping out of the bed," she sighed. "It's like you want to kill yourself!" I just smiled. "Well because of that little stunt, I want you stay here for an extra two hours."
She looked at the clock in the room. It was 8:00 p.m. "You can leave at noon tomorrow." I sighed. "It's your own damn fault." She started to walk out of the room. She paused right before she closed the door. "We're close to finding a way to return you to normal, but I want you to think about something. The group of people who kidnapped you, they are not going to use the serum for good. They don't care about anybody and they will kill anyone who gets in their way. Going back to being human and your old life, it is probably a death sentence." She left.

I woke up to loud banging. Someone was hitting the bas to the cages. I sat up and rubbed the sleep out of my eyes. Somebody slide a tray of food into my cell through a gap in the bars. I crawled up to it. The food liked like green mashed potatoes mixed with week old soup. I tried some and it tasted terrible. I still ate it though.
I finished my food and then I lay back down. I was about to fall asleep, when a police baton hit the bars on my cell. I sat up. "You're wanted," the security guard said. I stood up. He opened the cell. I walked out and saw that Espeon, Growlithe, and Mightyena were being dragged along as yell. We walked down the hall and went through a set of double doors.
There were metal walls everywhere. Occasionally we saw a window. There wasn't much going on in them right now. We got to the end of the wall and went into the last door on the right. When we got inside the room, the others were handcuffed and brought into another room. I looked around and saw a couple of sc

They live in fear of us, fear that we will rise, but they live in contempt of us, because we're different." I looked up at Frank, who was staring off in the distance.

"What can I do for you two?" He said, his voice not faltering, despite the death glare Dark was sending. The man kept on smiling.
"We need one room." Dark answered with a growl. He did not like this man. He was short and stocky, yet strong, but his eyes were shifty. He wore a tunic like theirs, but his was tied with rope. His shoes were not a poor man's shoes, but that of a rich man. Dark, unlike Link, knew what a thief looked like, and this guy was certainly fit the profile. The man nodded, giving them a key to room number 4.
They walked into the room, Dark putting their stuff on the floor next to the bed. It was queen sized, although barely seemed big enough for two. Link stared at the bed in worry and wonder. How are we both going to fit on that small bed! Link thought.
