Elle and Mias Chapter 120Hilda sighed as only a woman in longing could. It’d been two months since Elle gave birth to Darcy and Lucy and being the quick learner that she was, Hilda found herself not being called upon as often as she would have liked. To pass the time, she helped patrol the woods with Abernos and his brothers, but being the sole female in their quaint little family (since Helga returned to Noric shortly after the ceremony) made her feel lonesome at times. Loneliness made her think of Elle, and Elle made her think about babies, and babies made Hilda’s natural maternal instincts flutter, and so she sighed again.Elle and Mias Chapter 1202 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Are you alright?” Abernos paused on the trail they walked and looked back at her.
“Yeah…” Hilda exhaled. “It’s just I thought with these forest patrols we might find an abandon child like you hear about in legends. You know, and we’d raise to be a great warrior who saves the world?”

"Daddy " Hilda whimpered as she buried her head into Alu's chest. It didn't take her long at all to accept the Runeskeeper as her father and she had every intention of continuing their relationship as child and parent.
Alu simply smiled and stroked his daughter's short hair tenderly.
"He's not a handkerchief, Hilda," Helga reminded her. "I don't understand how you can cry for an evil man "
"Someone has to!" Hilda sniffled. "He might have done a lot of bad things, but he was still human If we don't value his life, we're no better than he was and I don't think it's possible for anyone to be truly evil "

Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)The scent of the ocean mingled with the odor of gunpowder, the acidic smell of alcohol, and the giggles and mumblings of those on its beach, and for Edward Kenway, that unified scent was that of home, the sounds a mere white noise that calmed him as he sipped at cheap rum. When the sun set, it was like a stupor overcame him, a sense of rightness, though others would say he was just tipsy and exhausted.Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
A smaller figure sat beside him on the beach, the blonde not needing to raise his head to assign an identity, "Kidd."

"It can't be helped. He doesn't have fur to insulate his body," Viola said calmly as she marched on ahead of him. "How can you complain of the cold? I'm having no difficulty."
"You're clearly not a normal woman," Abernos sniffled and rubbed his mitten covered hands together for warmth. "How are we supposed to pinpoint Elle without Leadbury's nose anyway? All he told us was to continue heading north."
"Weren't you supposed to be optimistic Mr. Abernos?"

Mary's back in her James Kidd disguise, but now that I know her secret I can't help but let my eyes trace the curves she's trying to hide. I'd like to say she's failing, but she's spent years wearing it and those curves are barely visible. Damn it. She takes a seat next to me at the now deserted fire. I wonder how long I've been here, staring into nothing. I toss her the locket I've been playing with. She catches and opens it, looking at the picture of me inside.
"It belonged to my wife," I say. She clears her throat.

She's taken the leap, revealed herself to the world, her life will never be the same... and she did it all for me. Well, perhaps not all for me.

"Where the sadness came from."
Fire… His body was on fire. Everything hurt. Was he in hell? Hell… He didn't even believe in Christianity. God, he would feel so stupid if he opened his eyes and actually was in hell. Hesitating, he cracked open on eye, adjusting to the faint light in the room and took a look around. The walls were a dull gray, he was lying on an old wooden bed, and there were bars… What? Wait a minute. He sat up on his elbows trying to get a better view of the room. He was in what looked like an prison cell, though a bit more furnished.
It felt like Medic had injected him with some alpha blocker for the drugs. Even so, he was very dizzy. He closed his eyes as he gingerly sat up. As he walked over to the small sink his eyes were focused on the floor, trying to keep his dizziness to a minimum. This wasn't the first time he had felt like this anyway, didn't make it better though.

The man was tied up to a chair, his head hanging low as he breathed heavily. BLU Sniper had nearly been beaten to death, and hadn't been given food or water for five days. He was fading, and fast. Blood soaked his clothes and covered most of his face. He was bruised from head to toe, coughing violently as pain flooded every inch of his body.
Scout was terrified. He did not want to tell the RED Spy what he found out. The boy spent eight weeks trying to discover what Sniper cared about the most through tricks, lies, jokes, games, everything. But the answer was always the same thing. No matter how Scout tried asking, he was always given the same answer.
The answer to what was most important in Sniper's life? It was the boy. It was Scout himself.

Similar reactions from Jo told him that his team-mate struggled like he did.

He spent days and nights away from the rest of his team, camping out in some high, out of reach place, consistently looking for enemies to shoot down. Many times he was able to simply kill a target in one precise, careful aim. Other times were rare, but very frustrating; the sharpshooter would miss by mere centimeters, the bullet whizzing past often alerting the target of his presence. He would mentally curse himself, before retreating from the sudden oncome of bullets (and other weapons) flying towards him at alarming speeds. If the attacks continued, the Australian would have to move camp without drawing attention to himselfwhich, during battle, could be difficult.
Despite these setbacks, Sniper was mightily fond his job. The satisfaction of bringing an arrogant soldier down, or drilling a bullet through an unsuspecting demo was rewarding. Yes, being isolated from the other members of his team had its setbacks, but he didn't mind
