Rising Storm The wind whipped through Dakota's hair until she could barely see. It did not matter to her, the image before her was already burned into her mind. The leaves scurried across the freshly turned dirt like nails on a chalkboard.
As thunder cracked the sky, Dakota looked up at the quickly incoming storm. Kneeling down, Dakota reached out and touched the top of the dirt pile. With her free hand, she reached in her boot and pulled out the knife she always kept there.
It stuck slightly in the sheath until she gave it a firm tug. The blade gleamed red from the stray beam of light in the sky.
Moving her hand, she thrust the blade into the mound of dirt where her hands had been only seconds ago. Dakota held onto the hilt a minute longer before standing up.
Standing there, she let the memories flash before her eyes.
The swing set.

"I'm working on this little contraption. You see, when I was only 8 years old, I used a chaos to transform me into 12 years of age, remember Cream?"
Cream nodded, trying to remeber way back then. She wasn't around at that time, but remeberd hearing it from tails.
"I became a freedom fighter and I was really excited. The thing was, I never had any special skills. I was always the one to, well, I was a backround peice... I never had any fighting abilities or experiences. And now, being only 12, I still do not have anything special about me, just a dumb piko-piko hammer..."
"Oh Amy, your special to me. Your our friend, its not like we hate you."
"Like Sonic..." mumbled Amy.
"What was that?" asked Cream.
"Oh, nothing.." she heaved.

"Sure, just helping out. We gotta help each other once in a while. Makes life worth it." Took two signs but it showed what I thought. He disappeared after that. Didn't see him for a while. One day, I was mining and I came across a diamond! Eagerly, I began to mine. Soon, the final blow was hit and the diamond fell into a pit of lava. I almost cried. I had never seen a diamond before, it would have been so cool to have had a diamond shovel. So I left my mine with sadness, going to my red bed. I awoke the next morning to find a sign next to my bed.
"Sorry about that." I was confused, did Herobrine control the blocks? Or did he do something else? I broke the sign and placed another, eve

Ash started off his journey a carefree boy who, despite all his TV-watching, didn't really know much about Pokémon other than you catch them in Pokéballs, sometimes while fishing. He got a rather ill trained Pokémon named Pikachu, and soon after in the same episode, he earned its respect and they became fast-friends. And though Ash and Pikachu have taken many deathblows that would kill a normal person (disregarding the fact that this show isn't real), it seems they both are perfectly

Death of Noble Six
I watched among the pink sunset.
The sun dipping below the rosen skys, giving the clouds that filled that rosen sky their color.
I imagined Her birds, flying into that bask of light.
Hell, if I wasn't on duty, or in the UNSC's military power... I definately enjoy Her bask of glory.
But not just me who's gonna be with me... I want all of Noble Team to see this magnificent beauty.
Also, minus this hellish war. The Covenant, the destruction, and everything that that religious group of aliens they brought upon.
But there's nothing that could be done. I wish that I just could reverse time before the Covanent attacked Reach, but I cannot change physics of space, and time.
Everything has been done.
The attacks of both Inner and Outer Colonies, the deaths of millions that the Covenant has committed, and...
The deaths of my Spartan brothers and sisters.
Especially the deaths of Noble Team.

The skies started turning a blackish gust, it was ugly and saddening. I stood up and glanced over.
I noticed a girl as I passed by, and froze. I looked there, to the girl staring at me. She... she wasn't me, was she? She had tears stolling down her cheeks, I never saw her cry like that before. Her eyelashes were clumpy and wet from her sobbing. Her cloathing falling over her heaving self, crying and gasping for breathes. Her hair long and,messy flying around her in the wind attacking her. So miserable in her own twisted life. I began to cry and looked away. This girl,

"And that is how the Diminum works, folks," the speaker eagerly spoke.
Rylie nodded at the half-bald lecturer and took down notes on her flat screen. The speaker said a few more words about the new medical tool before ending his speech. An applause followed suit, but Rylie concentrated on getting as much as what she understood into her notes. She was on a two-day seminar for new technologies in health and medicine, and the schedule was packed. Since her arrival late last night, she had attended countless seminars all day long. It was 9p.m., and the last lecture had just ended. Despite of that, Rylie was still putting as much input as she can into her device. She ignored the audience's chatter growing louder as they hassled down the auditorium.
"What could you possibly be writing about now?" Someone said above her shoulder. Rylie turned around to see a stout figure with short brown curls bending over her.

"I can handle it."
"That's what you say now," Rylie said. She examined the gash near Ryan's right elbow. "If this swells up, tell me immediately. That could mean there's an internal infection."
Ryan grunted. Rylie held his hand up to wrap a fresh bandage on top and pressed her hands against his arm to smoothen the creases. Ryan turned to look at her, but she appeared to not notice. The small blonde put back her equipments back with an air of a well-practiced healer.
She closed her case shut and spoke to Ryan, "Well, you seem fine. Just tell me if you notice any changes."
"You'll be sure to see them first." He replied teasingly. Rylie gave a brief smile before she headed towards the living room.

The Death of Carter
Both me and Emile ran as fast as we could go.
After managing to dodge two Covenant Scarabs and taking out yet another squadron of Covenant forces of Grunts, Jackals, Brutes, and a Wraith tank...
We just cannot stop.
Because there is one reason - we are very close to our destination.
But to me, it feels like that we going to utterly fail the mission...
Ever since leaving Carter on the almost-destroyed Pelican that we used to be on, my heart was telling me that I should have refused his word and helped him.
But since he's the Commander and Noble Team's Leader, I cannot disobey his direct order, no matter how much I want to.
But from Dr. Halsey order herself, I am entrusted to deliver and safeguard the extremely most important package.
She had trusted me with a very smart A.I.
Which this A.I holds as much weight as Halsey herself... or even greater.
As we continued our run through the entrance of the cave, my comm emitted some static before Carter's voice ca
StuffingI swallowed the last bit of the bread, and I thought I would burst. I tried to lean back in my chair to stretch out my new big tummy, but it was difficult, as my hands were tied to the arms of the chair. I looked down at myself, and I had to help from not vomiting at the sight. My belly was round now, like a beachball, and it went almost all the way to my knees. Rejected food sat on my bosom, and my tight pink shirt was now pushed all the way up to my breasts. It was disgusting.Stuffing3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Pete came back right then, and I sat up and smiled, not wanting to disappoint. It was difficult to smile though, when I saw the next heaping plate of food he carried over. He sat down on the couch across from me and smiled.
"How are you liking it?" he asked, obviously oblivious to my discomfort.
"Great! Your cooking is the best," I said with practised sweetness.
He took a spoon and dippd it into the deep mound of mashed potatoes and when I opened my mouth he shoved it in my mouth. I gulped it down, trying not t

I watched as the last remaining Brute Chieftain drop to the rain-soaked pavement with various bullet wounds embedded into it's flesh.
Even with the last of the Covenant forces on the landing pad were killed, but my senses were still telling me that there are bound to be more of them.
And my instincts were telling me soon... very soon that they'll come.
I release the clip of my M392 DMR and refreshed it with a new one, readying myself if the Covenant bound themselves to show up.
I could feel the landing pad vibrate as Emile fired the Mass Driver into the oncoming Banshees, blowing them out of Her sky.
One by one...
As my gaze drifted towards the oncoming Pelican, the Pelican that's holding the UNSC's most highly skilled strategist and inspirational leader among the their Navy;
Captain Jacob Keyes.
As the Pelican landed on the landing pad and opened the back hatch, I could see three Marines and the Captain himself.
I placed the M392 DMR onto the back of my MJOLN
Sasha 3: WaterloggedSasha yawned a giant yawn as drove to school. She was still used to her summer schedule, so waking up at 6:30 was a giant challenge for her to say the least. She took one more right turn and ended up in the drive way to her high school. She pulled into a parking space and turned the ignition off. She always had a few minutes to burn before heading to her first class, so she usually relaxed in her car. However, she had a lot more on her mind today than any other.Sasha 3: Waterlogged3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
As she snacked on her pop tart breakfast in the car, her recent weight gain was heavy on her mind. That day with the pizzas was a over week ago, but now she had to go back to school. Which meant going back to the place where appearance was held in high esteem. She looked down to see her belly plopped out underneath her pink shirt and resting on her lap. She had wished that those 27 pounds she had gained was still the same amount, but she had inspected her body the day before and found that after her bad eating habits that conti

I leaned back against the wall.
My mind throbbed over these past hours.
These missions are starting to take a massive toll on me.
I breathed in and out...
I looked around the room that the rest of Noble Team have been holding out in.
I can see Carter, Noble's leader, staring out at the almost-completely ruins of New Alexandria...
I can see Kat, Noble's co-leader and intelligence specialist, working her way on fixing with a comm unit...
I can see Jun, Noble's best sniper, watching for movement with a pair of binoculars within the ruins...
I can see Emile, Noble's assault specialist, sharpening his kukri against his shoulder armor at the other side of us...
There is one more Noble that should have been here.
And that's Jorge, Noble's heavy weapon specialist...
Ever since Operation: UPPERCUT, my heart was hurting me.
Ever since his loss, I just wanted revenge to those who sent us on that suicide mission!

"He's... not breathing.." she stutters out "H-he's not breathing!" she shouts, her eyes going wide. Quickly her training kicks in and she begins administering chest compressions, trying very hard not to break down and cry. But she knows it's no use. With each compression she can feel the cold seeping through the red kevlar. She pinches his nose closed and presses her lips to his icy pale ones, the cold of his corpse almost making her sick as she breaths into his mouth again.

Zack opened his eyelids lazily. He felt satiated after a good dream, though he was still slightly drowsy. Yawning, he turned his head to the right to see if his girlfriend had awakened, but she was facing away from him. Zack silently traced her recently cut silk-black hair that exposed her long, tanned neck. His heart swelled up by the simple sight of her lying next to him. Zack shifted over to get closer and kissed the back of her neck. There was no response; she stayed still like a log.
He grinned. Ava was a heavier sleeper than anyone he knew and that included Nicky, surprisingly. But he always enjoyed teasing her to wake up, especially on lazy weekends like this one. Slowly, Zack let down the thin strap on her left shoulder, and placed small tender kisses at the area. Her face twitched a little, so Zack continued his ministrations. He let his left hand traced underneath her short nightgown and started tickling her waist.
"Mmm, Zack..." Ava growled, slightly annoyed. The latter only

Flashbacks of two weeks ago of gorging herself on food and her giant swollen midsection kept replaying in her mind. She didn't have any desire to be fat. At least she didn't think so. Although she knew for some reason having a big belly fueled some thrilling desire deep within her. The thought of having such a heavy bloated belly gave her comfort.

I pulled my head and a load of flailing clothes out of the dryer. "Oh no, sweetie, you're kidding!" I followed the cold draft to the open door. Buford was standing at the bottom of the steps, tears welling up in his blue, seven-year-old eyes. He pointed to the spot where his Jack-o-Lantern used to sit.
My own heart sunk to the spidery frost formations on the steps. He was a timid kid, Buford. He was fiercely intelligent, and he took pride in his work, but he got discouraged easily.
His grin had been so unreserved last night when he had shown Bret and I the lop-sided cackle of his Jack-o-Lantern, his bright little face smudged with the orange-yellow juice and webs of pumpkin guts still trailing from his elbows and fingers. It had been a project of many hours of scooping and carving and even more drawing and redrawing the perfect face. It was his second one this year.

The day had been long, and the evidence of this was all over her body- Dirty clothes, a small smudge of coal dust on her left cheek... Not to mention the fact that her hands were stained with ink.
