From touchdown in Atlanta it is obvious I am, so to speak, no longer in Kansas.
I am asked what I am doing here. Repeatedly, and not always in a nice way. I want to answer with the obvious, that I am queuing endlessly for the privilege of being cross examined by an unfriendly customs officer who wants to know all kind of private details my best friend doesn't even know, but I swallow it back and smile meekly, while trying to act like I am not nervous, frustrated and insulted.
Procedures, waiting lines, probing questions, stamps and signatures, and then, finally, the liberating "Enjoy the United States".
I never felt more alien.
passports, fingerprints, eye scans...
I just want my love.
America amuses me.
This first meeting scratches only at the surface. I encounter all the clichés and smile inwardly: the food portions, the convenience stores, the SUVs.

Chapter 10: Invisible
You've been flying around the neighborhood hoping to find the winter spirit. But not really a spirit, Jack Frost as a mortal human. MiM also said that after a week, he will, or should I say, must die. You remembered something about what the young guardian told you when he retrieved his memory; and while fighting the Bogeyman. So you flew in a direction you're sure of and looked round.
"Forest… lake… log house…." You said to yourself repetitively.
Your son also helped while riding on your back. He stared cautiously here and there trying not to leave a single stone unturned. The only thing you can see was trees with snow and the ground was covered with white.
It's not even wet but more like frozen. Snow fell and the whole place just became more beautiful than earlier. Suddenly, you swooped down and your son held your shoulders tighter and buried his face in your back.
You landed softly and put the boy

Jack stood frozen and can't believe what the kid just said. "A guardian angel? A guardian?" he thought and stared at the boy, perplexed.
Jef's stood up and you straightened yourself. You checked your angel wings and sighed in relief. The little boy grasped your hands and walked to the young guardian.
"She saved us." Said the boy and Jack nodded his head and gazed at him.
"Wh- who?" asked Jack still puzzled about what happened. "The only thing I saw were the dark horses. And they're vanishing one by one." He said with a shaky tone.
"That's Pitch's work." Explained the boy, "I- can't explain it to you all.." he added and Jack looked at the boy's hand and noticed that he's grabbing onto something, maybe a hand. The hand of the guardian angel.
"You think I'm crazy…" whispered the boy and Jack shook his head.
You know when he's telling the truth or not. But now, he is. He believed in his son. Jack knelt usi

Chapter 3: Jef Wynter Frost's Life
The boy had been playing snow gliding with the winter spirit for about half an hour now. You kept widening your eyes whenever Jack Frost makes a slide made of snow letting his son glide down.
"I said not too much!" you yelled at the winter spirit but he just stuck his tongue out at you.
"It's fun!" yelled Jef and kept shouting with gaiety. Jack laughed while skidding his staff on the ground giving a pathway for Jef's snow glider.
"Wohoo!" shouted Jack and made a small steep hill of snow.
You stood up and your heart beat fast when Jef slid down the slope. The winter spirit suddenly made a curve at the end and made Jef flew in the air.
You closed your eyes and heard Jef uttered a low sound.
"Woah! Let's do that again!" shouted Jef excitedly.
You sighed deeply and looked at Jack who's raising his brow at you and said, "What?" with a weird grin.
"You call that not too much?" you responded as you crossed your arm

I growled. How long was he going to take? Jeff told me to wait until he got home. Which was like.. five hours ago. I tried to turn on the TV, but all that showed was static. Then, I tried reading. Yeah, didn't work out too well. I pulled out my cell phone(which I surprisingly still had in my pocket) and played some games.
"God dammit, Pac Man, hurry up!" I whispered harshly to the screen.
Just then, I heard talking from outside. I saw the hooded figure I was waiting for, then another. Who? They had a petite figure. Hair down to her waist, biggest boobs I've ever seen. I glanced down at my chest in shame. She had blonde hair, unlike my black locks. The pair stumbled around, making me giggle. Was he drunk? Is that what he was going all this time? As my sister would say, L-O-L. Then, my face paled. If he was bringing a girl with him, drunk, that means something was going to happen. There are condoms in the kitchen. There were more than t

Small cries filled the room as [Name] began to regain consciousness. Her hand was covered by another as she blinked her eyes open to see Jack smiling down at her brightly.
[Name] lifted herself up, Jack helping, and looked at her mother who was washing her hands in a bowl.
[Name] cleared her eyes and saw two babies wrapped up and laying on a pillow on the table. Her eyes widened as Jack leaned down and pointed his staff at their children. "A boy and a girl."
[Name] sat speechless as her mother picked up the female and handed it to her. Then handed the male to Jack.
Jack stared down at the baby awkwardly as it looked up at him and whined.

I sat in the afternoon sun, glaring at the dagger that sat in the grass. "Are you ready?" Jeff asked. I nodded, and he lifted me off the ground. Today was killing day. Or, rather, the day I get to kill. Again. I walked slowly behind him, playing with the blade in my pocket. I felt a slight sting, then warm liquid. Pulling my hand out of my pocket, I saw the warm blood trickle down my thumb. Damn, I cut myself. I thought of what had happened the night before.
"This is wrong," He said. "This is so fucking wrong.." He sat up quickly. "Sorry." He murmured.
"I played along too, didn't I?" I said, sitting up after him. But it was true. It was wrong, human or not.
Why did I like it? Kissing a twenty year old man was not on my list, but why did I not pull away? I noticed it created the same spark of electricity that I craved. I wasn't paying attention, and didn't notice that Jeff had stopped. Bumping into his back, I muttered an apology. When he

"Er.. those things at the end of sentences." I facepalmed. Hard. Ow...
"It's also when a woman bleeds. Once a month. And she gets real cranky. There are things called pads, where she puts them on her underwear. Can you go to the pharmacy and get some?"
There was silence. Then, I heard him grab his knife. " 'kay." He called. I heard the door of the bedroom slam shut, I just sat there, then remembered what I used to do when I forgot my pads. Grabbi

It's the middle of the night. You're turning side to side in bed and screaming both the winter spirit's and his son's name. You're having a nightmare, the first nightmare you had since you became a guardian. It feels all too real and frightening.
Your body's fullness of sweat but the temperature is rather low. Suddenly you sat up with a horror look on your face. You glanced beside you but didn't see the young guardian. You wiped your face and stood up slowly. You opened your wings a little and closed them back. Walking to the terrace, you heard something flew above the house and saw a shadow, big shadow passed by.
You took out your weapons and slowly went out the room and to the balcony. You carefully looked up, down, left and right but saw nothing. You can only hear the wind blowing, the water streaming quietly the whole place was quiet.

"JEF WYNTER! Don't you dare move your finger closer to that!" shouted the young guardian and pointed his staff at the boy.
Jef pouted and stuck his tongue out at his young dad. You laughed when you saw Jack's mad face he started to chase the young boy and stopped. He lay himself in the snow, still embarrassed by the boy.

The orphan boy, Jef, opened his (your eye color) eyes and blinked a couple of times as he looked around the room. The other kids were already gone and he can hear them outside playing in the snow. The young boy rubbed his eyes and stretched as he gave a wide yawn.
The winter spirit's son looked through the window and saw the whole place was already covered with white blanket of snow. The buildings' and the houses' roofs were also capped with Jack Frost's beautiful work.
Then suddenly a head popped just above the window that made Jef jump back. The young guardian, with his hood on, laughed when he saw the little boy got startled. Jack opened the window and entered. Frost formed on the ground but the winter spirit kept walking around the room.
"Hey! Don't walk round too much!" yelled Jef with his cute kid tone and pulled the winter spirit. "You're making a mess in here." He added.

The journey back to the mainland was relaxing. Valkyrie leaned over the railing, watching the waves lap up against the side of the ferry. Despite the calming of the water, she was nervous. Was it possible for him to get her pregnant?
She had never even thought about it when she gave herself to him. Her stomach churned more with each splashing wave against the ferry as more questions flew through her mind. She jumped as she felt a pair of strong arms wrap around her waist.
"Did I scare you?" Skulduggery asked, the humor clear in his voice. She took a moment to collect herself and then turned to glare at him.
"No, you just...startled me," she replied meekly as she turned back to the water. They were silent for a moment.

A little boy sat quietly waiting for something he had been trying for years to see. A gray cat lay next to him sleeping on her favorite sofa, curled up in a warm pillow. The only noise that could be heard in the house was the ticking of the old grandfather clock in the corner of the room. In the center of said room was a collapsible table, and on it was four Easter baskets placed at each of the tables corners. Ruining this symmetry was a plate of carrots, a glass of water, and a letter that were placed by one of the baskets.
The little boy's head occasionally dipped down as his body cried out for sleep. Each time his head began to dip however he let out a soft gasp and jerked back into his original position. Now past midnight the boy had been up long past his bed time, and he was beginning to lose his fight with the Sandman. After one last jerk of his head the young boy finally became overcome with sleep and fell over onto the cat that had rudely taken his pillow.
