Chapter 3: The Night Thieves
Katara reluctantly woke up. She felt so comfortable! This bed was softer than the bed in her room. She stretched. Her legs didn't go behind the bed, like they usually did.
She slowly opened her eyes. First, she saw Zuko. He was taking some clothes from his wardrobe, perhaps to cover his naked torso
-You finally woke up! I slept late because of you. Longer than usual. The servants are probably worried
Katara violently sat up in the bed. She couldn't say anything.
-What I Where am I?! And why here?!
She couldn't ask: 'What am I doing in your bed?'.
Zuko sat on the edge of the bed.
-Yesterday, we worked very late. You fell asleep when you were signing letters. I took you here.
Katara rubbed her forehead. She fell asleep? She remembered that she was sitting at the table, transferring drops of ink and copying the Fire Lord's signature. It was so monotonous. So soporific.
-And - she started, but

"Benders aren't any better than us normal folk," the man said, spitting derisively at Korra's feet. She clenched her hands into fists.
"I know that," she said through locked teeth. She took a deep breath, then tried to settle her first ever Avatar dispute. "Benders and non-benders are a source of balance for the world. The spirituality um it does stuff. I suppose."
The crowd laughed in her face, and Tenzin sighed heavily.
"Okay, I could have done better," she snapped at him. "Look, I'm trying my best, alright?"
"Come back when you got a handle on that, honey," the man said, and they all laughed.
Korra turned on him and fell into her favorite waterbending stance. The crowd took a collective step back, and Korra gave the daring man a hard smile.
"Come on, if you're so tough," she sneered.
"Korra," Tenzin snapped. "Stop this."
"Trying," she replied, not taking her eyes off her new opponent. He hesitated, then shrugged.

PruCan - Verboten ch1Verboten. Verboten. If there wasn't any other word of German he could recognize, it was one that he'd heard too often. Forbidden. It was posted on notices on every corner that Matthew Williams-Bonnefoy somberly wheeled his bicycle past, and he was hard pressed to remember what Bussy had been like before the occupation had begun. The windows of most houses were still tightly fastened behind shutters and thick curtains, though it had been almost a full year since the Armistice had been signed and the city overrun with German soldiers. Verbotenunder penalty of death.PruCan - Verboten ch13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Matthew leaned heavily against his handlebars as he stopped on the road, allowing a gaggle of soldiers to pass. Their boots and belts caught the sun, shining brightly in the warming April morning. The dusty almond green of their crisp uniforms mirrored the greenery of newly awakened grass covered in dew. But Matthew couldn't help but see these men as monsters, glinting cold and metallic and moving a
PruCan - Verboten ch3Spring blossomed gently into summer, the late June weather fine and hot, and the villagers and Germans of Bussy found themselves strangely at ease. They were too far removed from the rest of France, from the rest of the world on these lovely summer evenings. Gentle stirrings of warm breezes mingled with the humming of insects, sweetly drifting over young couples as they visited in secret. The Germans and the French were by no means reconciled, and being found out by the rest of the village would create scandal and uproar, but who could resist the sweet intoxication of young love when it called? Especially in these times!PruCan - Verboten ch32 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Most of the villagers feigned a blind eye or a deaf ear, should they catch a pair of voices whispering sentiments in broken French and German. The men had been too long away, and so long as the wives remained faithful, who would mind the young girls learning to turn on their charms? The now familiar Germans, who gave candy to the children and acted so courteously and h
PruCan - Verboten ch2The bells tolled twelve in the town square and in the bell tower of the church. It was noon on Easter Sunday in Germany, and the great clock set into the wall of Bussy's town hall as well as the one adorning the church reflected that time. However, in the Williams-Bonnefoy household the great grandfather clock in the atrium, with its dark bass tone echoing through the bare hall, was one chime short. Here, as in all the French households, it was only eleven AM, no matter what time the occupying soldiers insisted they were living on.PruCan - Verboten ch23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Matthew counted the hollow chimes, sure that he could feel each one of them reverberating within his heart in the same way they did the heavy mahogany body of the clock. Morning mass had been over for an hour, as the church had no choice but to operate on the time indicated by the Germans, but Marthe would not be serving Easter lunch until noon, punctual to a fault. Any attempt to persuade her to relinquish even a morsel before then would end in d

Katara dove into her closet floor and started to pull the loose pieces of clothes off the ground.
"Ummmm What are you doing?" Asked her brother from behind her.
"Looking for my scarf!" Katara said, belly flat on the floor with her head hidden in the closet.
"Your brown one?" He asked crossing his arms. Katara poked her head out of the closet.
"NO! my blue one!" Katara extended her arm in a silent attempt to ask help to get to her feet. Her brother took the hint and took Katara's hand and pulled her to her feet.
"Well, I haven't seen it. Why do you need it anyway? Your outfit is great already." Katara looked down at her white leggings, and blue tunic. The outfit was simple, She usually when out like this.
"Sokka, I have a date with Zuko in ." Katara checked her Ocean colored swatch. "5 minutes!" Katara grabbed her brown Uggs from under her bed and quickly put them on. "Help me sokka!!" Katara barked at her brother.

Maddie couldn't sleep and that was a problem. She had fallen asleep a few minutes after her little talk with her father, but less than an hour later something inside her had stirred, prying her out of her peaceful sleep. Now she could do nothing except lay between her tangled sheets, twisting and turning as worry churned inside of her, tying her stomach into tight knots.
A small groan escaped her lips as she turned to face the alarm clock resting on her bedside table. The bright red numbers on the clock's face pierced through the darkened room to tell her that it was already four in the morning and the family would be waking up in a few hours to head off to Sunday morning Mass. (Well, the whole family except for Dad, who hadn't set foot inside a Catholic church since their baptism.)
Maddie sighed, kicking off her sheets and groping through the darkness to retrieve the pair of glasses she had set down on the table beside her. She decided then that lying in bed worrying abo

Summary: Arthur is having a hard time accepting that his little girls may be growing up.
The sight of lacey under things was nothing new for Arthur. Having been with Francoise for as long as he had had made the sight of even the most expensive and risqué undergarments nearly mundane to him, especially come laundry day. He already knew what setting to put the washer on, how much soap and fabric softener to use, and yes, he admitted that sometimes he would cling to a stray bra or panty a bit too long and run his fingers against the smooth fabric and reminisce about all the fun they'd had while Francoise wore them.
Today was not so mundane, because as he shifted through the seemingly endless piles of clothing in the laundry room, his hand landed on pair that he did not recognize. It was new, he could tell from the price tag that had carelessly been left unclippe

The pain was unbearable. My body was stiff all over, so much so that it hurt. I could feel something running through my veins, mixing with my blood and filling my body.
"I see you've finally awakened, sleepy beauty.. Or are you Snow?" there was humour in the voice I heard; I could imagine a cocky smirk. I opened my eyes, and I was right. There it was, playing on the lips of a gorgeous man, shrouded in darkness except for half of his face.
"Who are you?" I asked, my voice shaking as I sat up, rubbing my eyes. I heard him chuckle,

You felt yourself losing your strength with each step you took, and as you were going to collapse, a glimmer of light finally shone in front of you.
You reached out your hand in an attempt to touch it, inching forwards as much as you could, mustering up every bit of energy you had left.
“Just an inch more…” you said to yourself, fingers fully stretched out, and nearly cheered as you managed to grab it, but then you fell.
What was that?

"Have you ever heard the tale of when time stood still?"
"No, mind sharing?" Katara and Zuko were on the palace balcony watching the sun set. Katara sat on the railing while Zuko held her around the waist to keep from letting her fall.
"I don't mind recounting a story to you." Zuko beamed up at his beloved and pulled up the distant memories of his uncle's anecdotes. "When the world was first created, light and shadow fought for control. Out of this battle the sun and moon were born, and they hated seeing the continuous war between each of their sides. The sun and moon fell in love with each other and constantly tried to see each other, but with every attempt, they failed. That's why we have dawn and evening.

Prince Zuko turned to look at the man; tossing him a superior glare. "We don't need to stop. They stole a waterbending scroll, right?"
The Pirate Captain rolled his eyes. "Uh huh."

The prince threw a second smirk at the captain as he ordered their docking. The ship docked easily, and five minutes after hearing the shots, Zuko was off the ship; the horde of pirates and his Uncle behind him.

The pirates gave a nod, before slinking into the trees; wicked grins on their lips. Zuko felt for a slight moment a sense of dread and regret. He wasn't

It hurt too much to bear and he could feel his own body shaking, his lips trembled under the pressure of pressing them into a thin line, trying to hold his cries back. It wouldn't change anything, he knew, and he had long cried out all the tears he had had in his body. He was left empty, dried out.Post Merlin - drabble2 years ago in Romance More Like This

Link ran. He knew what was about to happen and fear propelled him forward. His feet had only taken a few steps when he heard the dragon exhale and the difference in temperature was immediate. Link’s breath caught in his throat as he realized that he was about to be scorched by dragon’s fire. Dying after a mere twelve years of life seemed unfair to him. There were no accomplishments in his life that Link felt pride for- nothing worth being remembered for.
It was then that he realized that Ganondorf was still at the heart of the dragon’s den. He turned around, half expecting to be consumed by fire, but he was greeted with an unexpected sight instead.

The sixteen year old brunette sighed as he forced himself to tune into what the teacher was blabbering on about at the front of the classroom. His brown and somewhat orange coloured eyes took in the almost illegable scribbles that covered the white boards surface, and he began to copy them down into his school book in his own understandable font. Ancient History was not exactly the brunette's favourite subject, but his grades seemed to show that he was rather good at every class he took, nevertheless. No matter his interest, his grades were always average, or just above. To be honest, he realised that this was because his social life had never really.. kicked off. No matter how many times he'd stammered out an introduction, he'd never really become close with anyone at the many schools he'd been to. In fact, he'd seemed to have attracted the exact opposite.

The floor was completely carpeted, there were hand-made signs with various students' names that were running for student councilmen to their grade, there was even a wall completely dedicated to the valedictorians and salutatorians of the previous year. The timid girl caught a glimpse of the massive library filled to the brim with countless genres of books, and two computer stations that took up about a third of the room.
