Genie MeanieSusan was walking along the beach when she literally stumbled upon the strange bottle. "What the...?" the young blonde shouted as she tripped over something and banged her head on a rock. She got up and looked at the object she tripped over. It was made of dark glass in a baroque design. It looked like some kind of bottle.Genie Meanie2 years ago in Settings More Like This
Susan felt her forehead. It was slightly nicked, but nothing seemed badly damaged. Susan sighed with relief. Then she turned her attention to the bottle. She reached out and took it, rolling it around in her hands. It felt like it had something inside it. Wine, or perfume maybe? Susan opened the bottle to take a look inside.
Instead, a burst of spicy-smelling smoke greeted her. Susan yelped as she dropped the bottle. The thick smoke continued to gush out of the bottle until it reached the size of a human being, then started to congeal. Before Susan's mystified eyes, a human-like form

Drenched in reticence,

Sayaka Honami was troubled; two conflicting courses of action fought back and forth in her mind. Given her obsession with the sport in the past few years, Sayaka visualized the conflict as a judo match. On one side stood her desire to win at any cost, to be the top contender in her weight class for Japanese women's judo, the part of her that would do anything to make that desire a reality. On the other was her sense of honor as an athlete, just as driven to win, but with a firm belief in the importance of sportsmanship. The two sides of her conscience grappled viciously on
They Also Serve Who Only Stand and WaitI don't know when we first went underground. I don't even know if it was one mass exodus, a swarm of mankind trickling through the earth's crust so vehement we carved our own caverns by the force of trampling feet, or whether it was a gradual process, perhaps even a repetitive one, a family here, a neighborhood there. For all I know, the echo of the damp subterranean machine has always reverberated off the cave walls, created long past by the Angels, who think of our well-being even while they shake their heads helplessly at our flaws.They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
They say that those who remained on the surface were raptured away in a great flash of light, like a million suns converted into raw energy all at once. While it was rumored once that the flash was our doing, our own horrid creation, we all know better now. It was the Maker who brought it forth from the void and cast it onto the earth's crust, as though shot from an immense sling, taking only those who were brave enough to trust in Him.

Knouge: Tickle and WorshipIt was a sunny morning as Knuckles the Echidna emerged from his wooden lodge and climbed up to the stone altar of the master emerald. Glinting in the sunlight, the emerald sparkled in the warm gaze of the sun. However, Knuckles wasn't the only one gazing into the massive gem.Knouge: Tickle and Worship3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
On the other side of forest, Rouge the Bat watched with mischievous eyes as she gazed at the Master Emerald. Rouge giggled as she saw Knuckles patrolling the altar, "Hmhmhmhm my favorite echidna is guarding my emerald". Despite their fierce fights over the emerald, the young bat girl could not suppress the secret love she held for the hot tempered echidna. But now wasn't the time for fangirl crushes.
Flapping her wings in the air, Rouge flew with the bright rising sun behind her to screen her movements. As she glided through the air, being careful not to flap her wings for fear of creating noise, she came within an inch of the massive gem until she was stopped by a thick fist to her stomach.

SouvenirsWhen her mom went to check the mail at breakfast, she returned with a thin box in her arms.Souvenirs3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
It was a package from her father.
Her dad was sort of like a traveler... at least, that was what she assumed he was. His job always had him jumping from city to city, country to country. He'd been to almost everywhere around the world, and every few weeks, he would send her a letter with a little souvenir from his stay. This time, it was a miniature Eiffel Tower.
So he's in France again, she mused, studying the two-foot tall replica. A small chuckle escaped her lips. It was about time he remembered to get it for her! He really should've thought of buying it six visits ago. She opened the small envelope attached to package and read the letter inside with a fond smile. When she finished reading, she stood up and excused herself from the table. Her mom answered with a sad smile as she nodded.
She raced up the stairs and headed for the Gift Room. It was a special place in the house just for h

"How long do we have to do this commander, can take no more ..." said a slightly stocky soldier, carrying a pole arm over his shoulder, to a woman a little further ahead who seemed to led the small group and was not willing to slow her pace.
She turned to the man, her floor length silver braid hanging over her shoulder as allways, and stared at him with her purple eyes and paused for a Moment.
" So long until you stop whining ..."
Her voice thundered across the street of this secluded and barren part of the country.
It was a thin populated region where only a few people where actually living, because the conditions were tough and the winter, start soon after the last leaf falling form the trees.
The woman who apparently was the commander, stroked a silver lock of her hair out of her face and ran her hand along her braid, like she often did, she then threw it back over her shoulder, at least that is what he imagined her to do.
