FearKorra sat meditating in the front of her temporary home, trying her hardest to ease the stress out of her mind. It seemed nearly impossible. Amon's solid mask and deep, intimidating voice was replaying over and over in her head. She closed her eyelids even tighter, ignoring the sweat that dripped down the side of her face. Breathe, just breathe, she reminded herself constantly, parting her lips and inhaling large amounts of cool oxygen into her lungs. For a moment she was at peace, staring into complete darkness, feeling her body go weightless and relaxed. Her head wasn't pounding anymore and her heart was no longer beating in her ears. They were both rather calm and forgetful. Her head tilted back the slightest bit, allowing the sun's warming rays to tickle her cheeks with warmth, allowing the very edges of her walls to begin to break down. Then footsteps. Fast, light footsteps. Sneaky ones. Stealthy ones. She tried to ignore them but they kept coming. They were getting closer.Fear4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

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?

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.

I look up for a moment and am surprised to see an Equalist looming over me. Before I can react, he uses his electricity-generating device and sends a current through the metal ladder. Electricity surges through my entire body, making every nerve in my body scream in pain. Unable to control myself, I let go of the rung of the ladder.

A small girl, no older than six, sat with her mother and father by the pond in the middle of the Death City Park.
Frogs croaked from the top of water lilies as they hopped from one to another. Dragonflies and butterflies flew about, gliding from lily pad-to-lily pad, flower-to-flower. Birds chirped and sang to their visitors from atop the high trees in the park; the sun peaking through its branches and leaves.
The girl smiled and pointed at a butterfly resting on a nearby flower. She, a bit un-swiftly, ran over to the flower, scaring the butterfly away in the process. She ran after it as it flew around the park and eventually flew too high for her to keep up, so she gave up. When she stopped she realized she was a great deal away from her parents. She glanced around and couldn't find them, but only found a small figure sitting against one o

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
