Owen narrowed his eyes as he looked up at the statue placed delicately upon the parapet of Castle Wyverns outer wall. It was beautiful, slender, graceful, clad in extravagant garments carved with the utmost detail. And the face it was like that of an innocent child and an untouchable woman all at once. The blank eyes seemed to be just barely holding back weary tears, and the half-parted lips seemed to be forming a question, or a sigh perhaps. It was truly an exquisite piece.
It should also not have been there.
He reached into his jacket and pulled out the newest model of cellular phone that Xanatos Enterprises had produced. It was a prototype, the X-model, and taking time to get used to (especially the earpiece). But it also had more features than most cars, and a camera that outperformed professional photographers worldwide.
He took a quick photograph of the statue and stowed the X-model back in his pocket, hastening to inform his employer of t

"It is rather spacious," Owen said, "Compared to most residential bathrooms. However, it is the smallest of the castle bathrooms, and also the only one with a spare room so near it."
"Look at this!" Nadja ignored Owen and climbed into the tub. "I think I can almost swim in this! And-oh my God-are those jets? Is this one of those Jacuzzi tubs?"
"The jets have three settings, the highest of which is quite useful for relieving tension in the lower back," Owen said dryly.
"You have a Jacuzzi tub too?" Nadja asked. "Does that just come standard with working for Mister Xanatos or do you live in a penthouse apartment?"
"Mister Xanatos spared no expense as to the comfort of the living quarters here," Owen said. "As for my residence, I have a suite of rooms here in the Eyrie building."

She heard the same soft whoosh that had foretold Goliath's arrival on the tower a few hours earlier and turned quickly.
"Hello?" she called, not seeing anyone. "Who's there?"
"Who are you?" a hard female voice asked slowly.
"M-my name's Nadja. Who are you?"
The female stepped out of the shadows and paused a fair distance from Nadja. She looked older than Angela, though strikingly similar. She had soft skin the same blue as the summer sky, and her hair was an eye-burning crimson that matched her red lips. She stared at Nadja suspiciously.
"I've never seen you here before," the woman said flatly.
"I'm new in town, I guess," Nadja felt her hackles rising. "What's your name?"
"I'm called Demona," the woman said and stepped forward, holding out her hand. "It's a p

Boom! The lighting lit up the sky fallowed by a large crash of thunder. Abbie pulled her legs up to her chest, shivering on the rock she sat on. Rain pelted her back, her torn T-shirt doing nothing to protect her. She felt like even the marrow deep inside her bones was soaked. Her dripping hair fell in her face, only making her soaked shorts wetter. Another clap of thunder boomed throughout the forest and caused her to jump. Andy came running towards her. She had heard him miles away, even over the loud thudding of rain. She didn’t realize how much that action meant to her until he was there, just as soaked as she was.
“You ok?” he asked, his deep voice full of worry. Abbie looked up. He was wearing nothing but a cut up t-shirt and ripped black jeans. He must’ve been just as cold as she was, yet he looked happy that he had found her.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” she replied, still shivering. Another flash of lighting lit up the sky, fallowed by a loud boo

We walked to the front door & I held on to Andy's hand. He looked down at me & I looked up at him. As his blue eyes looked at me, I felt calm seeping in. But I was still scared. As Ashley rang the doorbell then knocked, Andy squeezed my hand & I squeezed back.
My mom opened the door. She looked like she had cried for a long time. Her eyes widened at the sight of the Black Veil Brides. Then she saw me. Slamming open the door she pulled me away from Andy and into a hug.

The scratchy coughs and sounds of 0408's hands smacking against the railing were enough to drive 782 mad. He rolled over in his bunk, smashing the small pillow into his face. 4040 lay back, worried for 5555 and wondering what was wrong with him.

It was a nice summer day, my 5-year-old son James was playing outside in the backyard of our suburban home. James has always been a quiet boy, he plays by himself mostly, he never had many friends, but he has always had a wild imagination. I was in the kitchen feeding our dog Fido, when I heard what sounded like James talking to someone in the backyard. I’m not sure who it was he could be talking to, could he have finally made a friend? Being a single mom it’s hard for me to always keep an eye on my son, so I decided to go outside and check on him.
When I went into the backyard I was a bit confused, because James was the only person back there. Was he talking to himself? I could have sworn I heard another voice. “James! It’s time to come inside.” I called out to him. He came inside and sat down at the kitchen table, it was about lunchtime so I decided to make him a turkey san

Like a soul that can't be healed.
My life is draining through my veins, my heart is tearing at the seams.
You are afraid to hold me now, afraid my fragile bones are going to fall,
You want me to be stronger
But strong is something that I can never be.
My fingers are slipping on the rock face,
I am losing my grip more and more every day,
Plummeting into the darkness, further and further away.

And you somewhat braver
And both a lot easier to love.

He was always there on his own, in the very back of the class, as far away from people as possible, he never spoke to anyone unless it was a teacher, he never interacted with anyone, never trusted anyone and everyone was scared of him. The male always wore a hoodie on top of a leather jacket which probably helped with the almost menacing aura he gave out; he could feel their fear of the student in the class roll off his fellow classmates in waves; it had been like that since he had first come to New York, since he had first come to this school, the unspoken rule was clear.

Andy was slipping down the curly slide in his neighbourhood's only kiddie park, grinning widely as he did so. A small teddy was clutched tightly in the three year old's hand, and Andy was holding onto it for dear life. His mother had told him not to lose it, or get it dirty.
"Dat was fun!" Andy exclaimed, happily.
As the blond started toddling towards the side of the park, where his mom sat, talking to other adults, he tripped and fell over. The boy could not help it as a tear trickled out of his powder blue eyes. His teddy bear had landed a few inches in front of his outstreched hand; covered in sand.
"Are you OK?" Andy looked up to see a slightly older boy, with shiny black hair that looked like silk. The boy was looking at him with concerned, wide, honey-brown eyes.
"N-no," Andy sniffled. "My leg h-huwts a-an' my b-beawr- mommy said I c-couldn't get it d-diwty!" His voice broke on the last word. The boy'
