"Cant be late,cmon!" She said,trying to run as fast as she could.
It was the first day of school,and she did NOT want to be late.
"I cant be late,not like last time." She said breathlessly,her bag jumped up and down as she ran.
"Almost there!" She said "Just a little more" She engouraged herself.
"Yes! Heheheheh!" She laughed,"Sweet victory,here i come!" Catching herself off guard,her foot twisted,and she ran face first into the hard cobblestone path,scraping her knees,hands,and some parts of her face.

So it was you in my dream and at my school but why? And what is with this place? And just who are you really? I asked Jet directly wanting at least something to be answered on this crazy day. Well, oh wait hold on. Jet lifted up a hand signaling for silence. I was not in the mood to be ignored but trusted Jet, this time much more so than when we were kids so I fell silent. I found the silence between us
disturbing, there was much more to ask him and he had a lot of explaining to do.
I didnt have much time to think of that though as footsteps broke the
silence. I tensed, wishing I had a weapon anything would do. I would settle for a rock at this point. I also knew that Jet obviously had better hearing than me sense I just now heard those footsteps. Jet looked at me, his blue eyes having confidence in them and a stern look graced his face, one I had never seen him have before. His look told me now was not the time to fight so I
Yggdrasil Chapter 5The Capital WallsYggdrasil Chapter 51 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The first sight of the capital was one of disappointment for the group of teenagers. They had expected a city made of marble, one that was beautiful and empowering, but instead they found sandstone walls and a heavy wooden drawbridge closed to them. The guards were the worst for Jack and Chloe, who had both envisaged the battlements to be lined with handsome men dressed in silver plate mail, like the knights of old and the soldiers that had ridden with them from the wall. But the men standing guard above the wall were old and dressed in worn leather or rusted mail that looked as if it had not had a polish in a century. From their place at the foot of the wall, they could even see dirt on the faces looking down at them.
Chloe sat silently in her saddle, sulking from both the saddle sores that plagued her and her disappointment in the guards, whilst Sally and Thomas could only notice each other.
Rachel's gelding shifted underneath her.
Waldo and Stavros urged their moun

Deep within the stronghold of Zetara, Vorel blinked open her eyes and yawned. Outside her cave it was raining. The dark rain clouds blocked the sun from shining down on the dragon kingdom. It was dark, but not too dark that she couldn't see. It was starting to get cold and soon the rain would turn to snow. Vorel carefully got up and made her way to the cave entrance. It was kind of lonely, living in a cave all by herself. It was fine though; all the females got a cave to themselves. Even the only male in the group had a cave to himself. Though of course his cave was much larger then the female's caves.
As dragons go, dragons live in groups even though they travel and hunt alone. These groups consist of mainly females and one male. It is the Male’s job to mate with the females and make sure that their population doesn’t falter. A male dragon was something that was hard to find. They were rare for only few existed on the planet. If the male in the group were to

The Council of the Dragons
It was only a day before I saw the Orphaned traveling. We flew overhead, and they noticed us and pointed, but I had the feeling we were mistaken for a bird. That was okay with me. I didn't want any more problems.
By the third day, we had found Judah, Noah, and my students. My wound hadn't healed very well, and it had started to grow infected, though I had only been in the sky. Since the group was near Calthtra Inn, Icemoon and I flew higher into the sky and passed them by about a league or two. We settled down close to Sun River away from the main road and waited. We had decided not to go into Ashlanka. Being discovered first by the White King and then the island people had dampened our spirits considerably. I didn't want to risk anything else. Nothing was going as planned.
I slid from Icemoon's back on my right side, landing on my on

"We Are What?"
Upon exiting the tunnel, we were met by bright sunlight and Silvia and Silvertongue, who were settling down to rest at the lip of the cave.
How went your... exploration? Silvertongue asked, licking his claws.
"Well enough. We saw five of the six caves you told us about. However, we were wondering," I paused to think of the right way to word my question. Dragons could be especially angry if I said the wrong thing. "Why do you hunt and store meat when you don't need it to survive?"
Ah, here come the questions, said Silvia, smiling. I was unsettled around a smiling dragon. Anything that involved their teeth scared me.
Why, of course we need meat to survive. Who has told you otherwise? Silvertongue snapped.
Okay young ones, Silvia said, ignoring her mate. What is all you wish to know? And so began our conver

- Dreamer's Handbook
Nerat stumbled, but that didn't slow him down. He scampered on all fours until his balance was restored, and continued running.
Go, go... Don't stop... His breathing was erratic. I'll make them regret what they did to us...
The plants and trees of the forest thrived due to ample sunlight, high humidity, and leftover radiation from ages past.
Nerat's mind focused on keeping the body running without losing consciousness. His subconscious used whatever emotions it could to achieve that goal: fear of death, of motionlessness, and a burning, but wholly unrealistic desire for revenge - sprinkled in with a dash of excitement. The fear of the known overpowered the fear of the unknown.
Born in captivity to the Crimson River clan, Nerat's mother raised him the best she could. Childhood was denied to all young ones - the vampires kept them fed, but treated them like cat
Divine Blood: Can't Go HomeDivine Blood: Can't Go Home1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Róisín was perfect. There was little else that the man sitting beside her gently sleeping form could say to accurately describe her. Black hair hung loose down to just below her shoulders. Not just black hair, glorious hair that seemed almost as if it was a piece of the night sky draped over her head. The beads of sweat along her locks failed to mat the hair down as it would with any other woman, instead it enhanced the image of the evening spun shawl by glittering like stars against the dark.
This was contrasted against alabaster skin that never seemed to tan. Lying beside him now, she seemed a fey ghost of snowy hills against the comparative darkness of the cream blankets. She was unscarred, despite the years that she'd lived a very active life style. There was no natural mark on her that wasn't mirrored on the other side of her body. Róisín had softened the impact of her symmetry by a liberal practice of tattooing herself with asymmetrical designs.
Once her eyes opened in the mornin

or am I no one at all?
Continuing in this eternal emptiness,
does this have a meaning after struggle?
Fighting for these frugal trappings of life,
nothing lasting forever.
And losing once,
means never seeing
An eternal existence,
cannot be procured or gained.
this stretch of life is nothing but a burden,
full of pains and difficulties,
and most importantly,
memories to keep, safely tucked into your pocket.
And death is just a new beginning,
not the ending of the entire book.

Respected fully but only interested as a friend...
Even in your loneliest moments you didn't think of me, just ran on past...
Holding out for someone has never hurt so much...
Everyone who wanted me dropped me, but everyone I wanted never shared the feeling...
What makes this fair to someone who would have been perfect if you had only asked...
Heavy heart, cold tears and all I get is a painful hole...
Looking for a silver ring in the fountain only to retrieve a peaty penny...
Why dose it hurt so much to love you, when you honestly don't give a damn about me...
Such a moody overactive girl you say...
But I say, just a hopeless girl who trusted in faith too much...

You've made me realize
I'm surrounded by people
who love and care about me
I've got to stop hiding
and love them
You've made me realize
