The scroll of Harmen chapter 9 and 10My alarm blared through my sleeping quarters when I awoke. It was game day. Dara had organized us all to head up to the armory to get us all some gear and I was one of the first to be fitted.
I flapped my wings lazily, slowly heading up the tower to the armory floor where I was met by a particularly strong looking vulture morph. ''Morning! You must be Zorath. My name's Keith and I'll be your smith today.'' he said in a rough American accent. ''Now lets see what we can do.'' he pulled out a tape measure and began measuring my body. ''Been hearing a lot about you kid. Something about a scroll if the rumors are anything to go by.'' I chuckled.

Walking among the crowds was a man dressed in a thick winter coat, scarf and gloves with a pair of large glasses. His blonde hair waved in the wind slightly while his brown eyes burned with determination.
He finally arrived outside the school only a moment later. His watch told him he had around 10 minutes before he could execute his plan so he made his way into position up a large oak tree just outside of the fence surrounding the playground and waited patie

It had taken a few more days since Shinkou joined him, but now his digital world was ready to go. Another friend had recently joined, Rob, and was now quite at home in his own world. Both of them were now his main administrators and had settled into their roles rather quickly. With the beta phase now complete, the next few days would truly test everyone's skills to the limit.

End of the human race?The sun was setting on another glorious winter night. The date; 20th of december 2012. Zorath was gazing out of his window, waiting for his parents to get back. His parents had gone to collect Shiva's birthday present for tomorrow and left him in charge. Although his sister was younger Zorath often went to bed before her but tonight he had to wait until their return to switch off for the night.End of the human race?7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

The Scales - Part 4The sky screamed as it set alight. All around people were fighting, bullets going everywhere tearing planes and myths from the sky. Zorath heard a high pitched scream and gasped in horror as Ai began to fall, her wings ablaze. By the time he caught up to her she was already gone, another life claimed by misunderstanding. He had hoped dragons would be accepted after a show of intelligence and a peaceful meeting. All it did was speed up the inevitable and now his only light in the darkness had been extinguished.The Scales - Part 42 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

As we were drawing close to Christmas my parents had decided to drag me out of the house and get some shopping done. It was the usual affair of march around every shop then go back through it to collect what you liked. I never get why we end up going around every shop. A waste of time if you ask me.
Anyways, we were now trudging around H &M looking for a present for my grandad. I had managed to cut myself off from the rest of the family and had found a nice new T-shirt with an eagle on it, my favorite creature bar dragons but I already had a million T-shirts with them on and a bit of change is always good.

The scales kept climbing Arakod's arm changing to a darker brown in intervals to create stripes that wrapped around his arms. Sharp black claws burst from his fingers as his hands became more paw like in appearance. He felt a similar sensation overtake his legs before the scales began to envelop them too. They moved along his limbs and across his back, creating some striped pattern there. At this point he could no longer stan

The Scales- Part 2When Zorath re awoke he was in a much smaller room. He was lying on a very basic looking bed pushed against a wall with a computer at the end. At least their captors left some sort of entertainment. He brought himself back to his feet and took a look out of the barred front of his now apparent cell. Opposite him was Ai's cell. She was still out like a light and he didn't feel like waking her. His arm was itching slightly now and he still had no idea where this was and why he was here.

You're still that lone soul,
But this time
You feel a presence
Building up inside you, slowly.
You can now see truly,
You open your eyes
And witness something incredible.
You've noticed your hand,
Yet it is no longer that.
You see claws spurting out from your fingertips,
Your nails, fallen to the floor.
It looks painful
But you feel nothing.
Nothing but the strength
Still growing inside you
Now making its way to the surface,
Changing you slowly...
You watch as your fingertips fuse.
As five becomes three,
Your new claws growing longer
