Black Friday Shopping"Professor! Look! Another sale!! Let's go!" called out the excited teenager. This was the first time Flora ever experienced something like this. She and Professor Layton were visiting Luke in America. They happened to visit during Thanksgiving. During Thanksgiving dinner, Mrs. Triton mentioned something she called "Black Friday Shopping." She explained that the day after Thanksgiving, all the stores had huge sales to kick-off the holiday shopping season. When she asked Flora is she wanted to come, Flora agreed right away. Flora and Mrs. Triton convinced Professor Layton and Luke to come with them as well. So this is how Layton and Luke ended up at the mall at five in the morning carrying twenty or so bags.Black Friday Shopping4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Sonic, Sally and Knuckles ran with all their might to escape the horde of eggspawn that were closing in on them. Sally suddenly tripped and fell to the ground, causing Sonic and Knuckles to stop and draw their blades to engage the eggspawn that were catching up. Sonic quickly appeared in front of Sally and sliced through the hurlock that prepared to strike her while Knuckles finished off the others.
"I think that's all of them," said Knuckles, sheathing his blade.
"For now, at least. Thanks, Sonic," said Sally as Sonic helped her up. "I can't believe Knothole's really gone..."
"I know it's tough, Sally, but look on the bright side. We're all ok and we're all together: you, me, Knuckles and Muttski!" Sonic said with a grin as Muttski, his faithful war hound, barked in agreement and ferociously wagged his tail.
"We should have run sooner, done something! Why did we wait so long?" Sally cried, looking at Knuckles.

"And so a year passed in Albion. Word arrived from across the Emerald Sea that the Hero of Northamer had defeated the Blight. But Knothole was destroyed and Albion was the Champion's home now. So he remained, paying off his debt to the mercenaries, while his friends did the same with the smugglers. They all made themselves quite the name in the underworld. It was a busy year too in the city. That's when the Ixians landed. A great storm had caught their ship and left hundreds of warriors and their leader, Ixis Mogul, stranded in the city, waiting to return home. That's also when the trouble started brewing with the mages. Albion's Templar Order had become very powerful under Knight-Commander Lien-Da. But, more importantly, that's when I first met the Champion."

“Can I get anything else for ya?”
“For the last time, Sonic, no.”
Shadow sat upon his bed, gazing outside absentmindedly. Indeed, after agreeing to join Sonic’s little team and began staying at his home, Shadow had been feeling a lot better physically and mentally. It was nice to have a proper roof over his head; he found it interesting that the citizens of nearby Westopolis had constructed Sonic and his friends that very house out of the goodness of their hearts. They did so shortly after the events of the Perfect Chaos incident—the townsfolk were increasingly grateful that their area was not affected by the water monster.
“Their city council kept insisting that ‘it was the least they could do’ and stuff, but I mean, we’re just doing our jobs, you know?” Sonic had told Shadow at the start. “But a home’s a home. We’ve had a spare bedroom for years, and now here you are!”

Voltage's training had progressed greatly! I couldn't risk taking him outside the arena so we had to make do with what we had. The most we could do was fly in place or around in circles until one of us got dizzy – almost always me. Even then, Voltage still responded to my commands and came to me when I called him, something Baldr was still unable to do. Maybe it was because Voltage still didn't respect Baldr, or maybe it was because Voltage had already chosen me as his rider. Either way, Voltage wasn't keen on listening to anyone else, that's for sure.

After a few days, the excitement of our find died down, and the crew began to sober up. As Kaja had requested, I set us on the course for Port Arx. It was far from where we had come from, so we faced less risk of being recognized.
We had been to the port before in years past, and was a popular destination for our crew. It had bustling markets stocked with unique and often expensive merchandise that was hard to get anywhere else. But more importantly, as Arden told me behind Kaja’s back, Port Arx had “great taverns and pretty girls”.
After three and a half weeks on sea, we arrived at the port on an evening with orange skies and warm weather. Before we docked, we lowered our notorious flag to avoid recognition. Quickly, the crew dispersed among the excitement of the landsmen’s markets, eager to spend their newly earned money or find mail carriers to send their gold to their loved ones. Once the ship was nearly deserted, Kaja handed the music
