Julia awoke, her head throbbing. She looked around, seeing only smoke and rubble. Rubbing her eyes, she tried to see through the thin dust. What had happened?
Suddenly, she recalled everything. The missile landing, the massive explosion, throwing earth, and her friends through the air. She had heard the cries of Elie and Let..
"Let!" She cried out, suddenly afraid. "Let!! Where are you?"
"Right where you left me koi…" She looked down to see that she was lying across his body. She swiftly helped him to his feet, before grasping him in a large hug.
"Oh thank God… are you alright?"
He gave a small smile. "I'll survive. You?"
"Fine now you're here."
Let looked around. "We'd better find the others." The two walked through the dust, the cloud beginning to clear. Through it, Let could see a massive crater, almost thirty feet wide.
"What an explosion. It's a miracle we're still alive."
"Yo!! Yo guys!" Musica's voice called out. The two bounded over the rubble to find Musica and Shuda, nursing

Dark clouds covered the night sky, as the group assembled outside their hotel. Julia looked utterly miserable.
"I don't understand… I thought they would be perfect for each other.."
Let touched her shoulder, and she glared at him. "Don't you dare say it!"
"Say 'I told you so'. I just know you've been waiting all night to say it."
"Actually…" Let huffed. "I was going to suggest something to help Haru and Elie."
Julia's face lit up." You have an idea?"
"Alright!" Musica cheered. "Okay Let, impart your romantic advice."
"I was merely going to suggest…" Let continued. ".. that Julia and I go tell Elie that we planned this whole thing."
Julia gaped. "Excuse me?"
"Elie's upset because of an understanding we all caused. And we were tricking them into this date. I feel the decent thing to do would be to explain everything, make Elie see you only wanted her and Haru to be happy."
Julia crossed her arms. "I wanted it to be a secret… but you're right. She deserves to know."

It was one of those days where the weather, for once, seemed absolutely perfect. The sun was out, a cool breeze was flowing, and everything felt pleasant. Julia leaned against the rail of the airship deck, her blonde hair streaming in the wind. The young Dragon woman appreciated the peacefulness the last few days had brought, as she had used the opportunity to get acquainted with the new friends her fiancée had made.
After Let had freed her from the dragon's curse, restoring her from a dragon to a human, the two had spent their time trying to catch up with the Rave Master and his friends, and had rejoined them in Ribelya, where they had entered a dancing contest to raise money for their journey. But before she could properly meet them, the gang had been confronted by the Blue Guardians, a massive terrorist group with power to rival Demon Card. For days, they had battled the power mad Hardner and his various cronies, with help from a group of rebels named the Liberation Army, led by the

Let awoke, as he usually did, quickly and always at precisely nine o'clock. Even the current peacetime was no excuse for breaking his usual routine. Doing a few quick stretches, he noticed that Julia was missing. She was normally a late sleeper, and had to rely on Let to get her up at all. It was unusual for her to be up early. Shrugging, Let pulled a robe on, and opened the door to leave.
"Gahh!" He jumped in surprise. Few things could shake Let. One of those things was the sight of his fiancée in a very tiny blue bikini.
"Let! Oh, I should have known you would be up."
Let composed himself, and cast an eye over Julia, and the vast acres of her skin exposed by the bikini. "By the great Dragon… what the devil are you wearing?!!"
"It's a bikini Let. And don't look so shocked. You've seen me in skimpy stuff before."
"Skimpy?" He snorted. "That is not skimpy. That is non-existant."
"It looks fine to me." Elie appeared, wearing a leopard-pattern bikini of similar size. "Come on Julia-chan,

With the last hieroglyph finished, Wati set aside the scroll he had been working on. He closed The Book of the Dead and ran his hands along the cover. Despite the fact he wrote these words on a regular basis, never had it been so hard. Ra had long since disappeared for his usual voyage, and the wick of his lamp was nearly burnt to the end. As the flame died its orange glow was replaced by the ghostly light of the moon filtering through the linens that covered the windows and door of his small hut.
On either side of the doorway, stood the shadows of two pots. It had been many days since Tiankhit had left him, but still the barley continued to grow. Wati had so hoped for the emmer wheat to sprout first. Like all men, he wanted a son, but had come to love the idea of his daughter just as much. They were overjoyed when the first leaves pressed their way up through the dirt to tell them the news of their child, and the days passed with excitement as they waited to see if they grew to be bar

Dear friend, how much I love you; still
not velvet-like they feel, your paws
while in my hair your raking claws
rip out whole strands with cruel skill.
You're purring, much to my delight
while dangling right before my face
your hairy tail despite its grace
now makes me sneeze and blocks my sight.
My little kitty, cute and sweet,
my head is aching from your weight.
Why should you bother what I've said,
knowing you'll always get your treat?

Rose fades away, ethereal
In beauty her memories remain;
Tis a shame about her departure.
Eerie shadows, misty horizons,
Relics scattered among dirt.
Let it be known, let it be heard;
Eventually sweet death shall
Testify against the pendulum's
Hands of the clock of immortality.
Oceans turn into thick tear droplets,
Global disasters strike here and there;
Inviting weak souls to breed anarchy.
Chosen by fate, this blossomed rose
Anointed with fire embers shall rise.
PainI'll never know what it's like to be freePain11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every memory sewn into my skin reminds me
Of the pain that stops me from living
The horrors that haunt me are unforgiving
It's like I'm the only one with these feelings
And with so many scars that it's revealing
My breath starts to slow as I am thinking
My eyes cry dust while I am dreaming
I used to love dreams...
Especially when I was flying
But now it seems...
In them, I'm always dying
Now I am just a puppet
Dangling from the strings
I wonder how I missed it
The moment I lost everything
The pain inside slowly goes numb
As I inject the poison in
Every emotion becomes like one
And I start to die within
So why the cutting and the pain? - I have been asked
Does it make you laugh or cry? - I live in apathy
How long before I go insane? - A faithless task
Do you want to die? - I have no sympathy
I know from where I'm standing
There is no one here but me
I felt this from the beginning
The cold aura of being lonely
But now my storm has evanesced

Cecil was not happy. Granted, teenagers are not known for being at peace with the world, but Cecil had his own particular reasons for being unhappy. His last close friend, Baxter, had just moved away. For a while he and the other nerds at school had had a sort of enclave, and found strength in numbers. Now he was alone, and exposed to the brunt of the anti-nerd sentiment in the school.
Case in point: Cliff.
Cecil's path home was blocked by a wall of muscle that was mostly devoid of hair.
"Well, well, well! If it isn't nerdy little Cecil!"
Cecil carefully took off his glasses and put them into his shirt pocket. "Come on. Do we have to do this? I mean, do you like reenacting an overdone 80s cliché week after week?

Bind me within your embrace
Bestow me with your grace
I seek your help to obtain the unseen
I need you to blind me from the light
Never let me see my weakness again
Blanket my fears so I won't cry
Cease the false hope from shining in vain
Ward away the lies that hide behind my eyes
Morph this disaster into a calm night
Burn the dying sun out
Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt
Lock away this cursed gift of sight
I no longer desire it
Shut out the world from you and I
I yearn for the abyss
Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence
Obliterate the life I created
And color this reality obsidian
Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth
My faith is in your hands
I profess it all unto you
I am under your command
Cover up my exiled heart

Tara sprang out of bed at the usual time, so early that the stars were still out. She let herself look up at the stars and the moon for just a little while. The white light shone over the great dream-city of the humans, over Nine Towers, and she could just make out an airship surrounded by crackling blue. More travelers from the Empire.
She shook herself. She really couldnt be lingering here. She bounded off to start her long day, singing quietly to herself as she went.
She got perhaps ten paces down the hallway when something hard thudded into the side of her head. The blow threw Tara off her feet sideways. She scrambled to stay upright, but landed on the ground with her tail underneath her before jumping into a crouching position. She held the spot where pain bloomed on her head, but she didnt cry. Her ears flattened against her head though. She couldnt help that.

Harry looked up from where he was putting on a fresh shirt, sitting

“They’ve been kicking me all night! I haven’t had a moment’s rest.”
I gave him a glare. These babies couldn’t be born soon enough.
My husband just laughed before he crawled up the bed to press a
kiss to my cheek. “I’m sorry. But I’m not sure what you want me

“You can try.”
He put his hand on my belly. I had about a couple of weeks to go,
so I was considerably fat. I could barely do anything on my own

He exhaled heavily, sprinting up the next stairwell he could find, in hopes that this would be the last on his excursion.The Lion's Den5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

He rested against the wall before covering his face. His journal fell beside him, opening to a few written pages in the middle. Daniel cringed at the sight of the words and violently nudged the journal away.
