That time had passed now, and she would have Yumie suffer no longer. Shirayuri rushed toward the part of the forest where Yumie had hid herself as she cast her illusion. She smelled the other ninja before she saw them, one was male the other a female. She was aware of their positions relative to Yumie's. Having been trained Shirayuri knew better than to run in head first she was strongest in combination with Yumie. Shirayuri smelled the heavy musk of fear on her friend and she didn't like it, fear didn't smell right on Yumie. She had to get her out of there but how? "Why are you here, what part do you play in the Horde's plan?" Hien questioned. Yumie felt weakened, tired, she was covered in her own blood and had lost a lot of it. Yumie had a hard time focusing and even more difficulty staying conscious from her loss of blood.

Renegade Phantom - Part 2Several pirates from Youngblood's skeleton crew cheered wildly as two pairs of gloved hands came into view, latching onto each other. The view panned out as Danny struggled against Dani, their fingers intertwined as they pushed against the other. Dani smirked with an evil grin, her eyes glowing bright crimson red; Danny strained himself so as to not hurt her as he tried to get through to her.Renegade Phantom - Part 24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Dani, what are you doing!" he half yelled. "Why are you working with this guy!"
"She won't respond to you," Youngblood called out to him. "She only responds to my commands. She is under my complete control, and does everything I tell her to. Now, finish him!" he shouted to her.
Danny looked from him down at his cloned sister as her grin widened and her eyes suddenly shown brighter. She hopped into the air, released her grip on his hands and head butted him. He stumbled back as she did a back flip in the air and kicked him in the jaw. He jumped back and glared at her as he rubbed his chin.

The mission was a success; they'd found the orb they and the enemy were looking for, but it was being held in the hand of a statue...a statue that was once an innocent girl from over a thousand years ago.

It was a long shot that she's even be able to be restored. It didn't always work. Some unfortunate people had been cursed with a permanent spell. Some attempts to bring statues back had even backfired and converted the curse into a permanent one, sealing the victim's fate for eternity. Charlie couldn't imagine being trapped as a statue forever, especially when being fully conscious the entire time. There could be no other horror than a promise of being cured, only to instead having the one chance of being human again being yanked away without hope of rescue.

That day I wanted to go hiking. I wanted to regain that feeling of being a free spirit out in the wilderness. I traveled along this well-known trail that went along the mountains, enjoying my time away from people and the problems society brought. It was nice to get away, even for a moment.
I don't remember being kidnapped, but I remember waking up in my cell. I remember trying to escape. I remember being caught. I was stripped of all my clothes and bound in shackles. They were really heavy too. They were excessive in their weight. My hands were cuffed behind my back and my feet were connected by a chain. It was cold.
Those huge Brutes came in the next morning and dragged me through the tunnels in the mountain to the opening that would later become the courtyar

I don't know how, or why. I'd been separated from the rest of the crew here, and I had thought I had my way back to them as the sun set when I felt my feet grow heavy. I had looked down, and they had turned grey, my boots too.
I tried to wiggle my toes, but nothing happened. I could still feel them somehow, which made me think perhaps they weren't stone but just immobile below my boots. I watched, unwilling to move my feet in case the stone portions should break off, and then I realised I didn't need to. Using the abilities given to me by the Hana Hana no Mi, I copied my lower leg.
To my surprise, the copy limb had a stone foot attached. I could see a seam of darker grey just at the edge of my skin and the stone, which I gave a cautious prod. The area felt warm around the dark grey line,

I also have a mild fear of constraint. This has put me in an interesting position as I've had some time to do a little introspective thinking of my life. I've always been a free spirit in a way; running for recreation or swimming in my pool. While I never liked to be bored in the house when nothing was happening, I also had some silly peeves that reminded me of confinement: shoes and handcuffs. Strange duet, right? I'm one of those girls that you could grow up with and almost never see shoes on their feet. I'm talking about those tight, confining sneakers or Vans or whatever people like to wear; they just w

A crack of light spread wide open in front of her. A male, tall and slender, holding another person, presumably another girl, who appeared to be struggling against bonds of her own. The man put her down on the ground in front of Hinata.
Her pale eyes grew wide with shock; she knew this girl. That was Sakura Haruno, one of Naruto's companions! Sakura was hogtied and gagged with tape. The man, still obscured by shadow, chuckled and slid over to Hinata.

Their names were Cerise and Diana. Natalya, a rather tall but slender built scout, with blazing red hair flowing down her back and dressed in black leather, was the leader of this group. Cerise was slightly shorter, about 5 foot, and built more voluptuously, came in next. She was blonde, and to the core, she frequently ended up doing something stupid, but it was all right, since the group could turn the tide against all forces she ended up attracting.

My name is Sarah Marcel. For the past few...well, I'm unsure of how long it's been actually. Let's just say for quite a while now, I've been living an extremely unusual life. Actually, I guess I haven't really been "living" very much of it. You see, for a great deal of my life, I've been a stone statue. I know it sounds unreal.

Today was my second encounter with humans. It did not go well.
The rain of the past few days had left and now there was plentiful sunshine. I decided I would quickly go outside today and look at the grounds surrounding the temple. I had my hesitations from the days before but I realize now that such unfortunate events will always occur with me. There's nothing stopping a stray animal from walking in the front door or landing on the roof while I'm practicing my lyre. I'm going to have to live with it.
However, my plans were cut incredibly short. As I rounded the corner to step outside, my eyes met the eyes of a young male warrior making his way towards the temple. He screamed at the top of his lungs as his body turned cold and gray. I slowly approached the new statue and was only halfway to him when I heard the sound of his comrades coming through the brush. I turned and ran for safety. I was not quick enough - they saw the back of my head as I sprinted inside.

I was very frightened at first: I thought I might have had a stroke and couldn't move my jaw. I frantically tried to move the rest of my body but it too didn't budge. Even my eyes were dead-locked straight forward. The woman finished her inspection of me and stood before me.

She walked out of my sight. Again, I strained to follow her with my eyes but to no avail. You have no idea what an odd feeling it is to not be able to move any part of your body even slightly. Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly moving in some way. Just try to stand perfectly still: Odds are, your eyes are shifting slightly. Or maybe your arms are moving: probably just millimeters but nevertheless, they are moving. I could not move at all.

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
