***Normally I don't post summeries. But this is too important not to.
For those of you who already know "Despicable Me," back and fourth. This little scenario fits right into place. I actually pictured this as a deleted scene that wasn't shown in the movie. It would take place right after Gru rescued the girls from Vector. Although the following scene in the movie shows them back in their room, there is one thing that still had to happen. . . .

The Memoirs of Mother GothelFirst of all, let me get one thing straight: I am sorry.The Memoirs of Mother Gothel3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I, Mother Gothel, witch extraordinaire, (formerly) the only person to have eternal youth and beauty, caring (even if slightly smothering and manipulative) mother, and master at dramatic exits, am sorry.
I'm sorry for the way I treated my flower, Rapunzel.
I'm sorry for keeping the real flower all to myself.
I'm sorry for attempting to kill Flynn Rider.
And yes, I'm even sorry for kicking Pascal (for some reason, people seem to think that's the worst offense, that chameleon sure does have quite a fan club).
I'm sorry for, well, everything.
Another thing I'd like the world to know now that I'm, ah, dead (Freakin' chameleon!), is that, yeah, at first, I did only see Rapunzel as a walking Fountain of Youth. I admit it. For a while, that was the only reason I kept her locked up. But, as time went on, I grew fond of the child. She really was sweet and her clumsiness was quite endearing. And she really did view me as her mama
HiccupXAstrid - Combat LessonsThe salty-sea air filled the small village of Berk as vikings came to and fro doing their business. Some going to the barrack to polish their swordsmanship or to repair their fishing nets. However, most of them were having their daily ride on their dragons who were impatient to be off.HiccupXAstrid - Combat Lessons4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
A blonde teenage girl was walking through the streets. She was wearing a sleeveless green and blue striped woolen shirt with spiked shoulder pads. Strapped behind her back was a battle-ax. She stopped in front of a big house; the chieftain house.
But Astrid wasn't interested in seeing the chief of the vikings. She was looking for someone else. His son exactly. She entered the house and went to the back. She knew that Hiccup's workshop was behind the house. As Astrid poked her head into the workshop, she saw drawings and diagrams of Odin-knows-what and Hiccup's unfinished projects. There were, however, no signs of Hiccup or Toothless, the Night Fury and Hiccup's best friend.
Guardians of AdulthoodHave you ever wondered why children stops believing when they reach a certain age? Ever wondered why they stop seeing spirits even if they know that they are real? Everyone says it's because that's a part of growing up. But what means by 'growing up'? Stop believing? Stop searching for hope and dreams? Stop having fun and remember the good times? Stop seeing the wonders of the world and the things in it?Guardians of Adulthood9 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
No. That's not the meaning of growing up. Adults still believes in hope and dreams, they still have fun and remembers the good times and they also see the wonder of the world. But they see it from another light. They know what the world looks like. They know the other side of the coin. They know both sides and not just the one that the children knows about. That are preventing the adults to see the spirits and legends of the world.
It have always been like this. When they reach a certain age, they will stop seeing the spirits and legends in order to survive. Even if they believe in the

Buck squinted a little as he climbed out of the large hole caused by the earthquake. The direct sunlight was almost blinding, and it also bounced off the snow on the ground.
He looked around at the scenery, slightly taken aback by the snow and sky. There wasn't much snow underground; it was always too warm for that. And there wasn't much of a sky either; all you could see looking up on a clear day was the ice ceiling. It was also extremely quieter than below in the Lost World.
"Whoa it's really been a long time since I was up here " he remarked.
He could recall at least a little greenery when he'd last seen the above world. Of course, that was about 18 years ago when he'd fallen through some thin ice.
As he was walking around the area, he heard voices. He followed them, and came to a small hill. Below, there was a large group of various animals. Most of them were freaking out about what just happened. Only one voice was trying to calm them all down, and it belonged to a very

The next day, after some breakfast and a head count, the herd of animals set out. Buck was in back with Crash, Eddie, and Louis, trying to keep the two possum twins from wandering too far from the herd.
"Fire when ready!" Crash yelled.
Buck released his hold on a vine that was holding a thin dead tree, and Crash and Eddie flew forward, hit another tree, which bent a little, and sent them back in the direction they'd come from. They smacked into the wall of rock that was driving the herd forward, and then slid to the ground. Seconds later, they jumped to their feet, laughing ecstatically, while Buck and Louis watched them.
Louis stared at them for a minute, before approaching.
"Can I ask you guys something? How is that even with the continent breaking apart, you can manage to stay happy?" he asked.
Crash looked at Eddie.
"Can we tell him our secret?"

"Separated by war. Tested by battle. Bound by friendship."
The above is the tagline for a story by Michael Morpurgo titled "War Horse".
The story is told through the eyes of Joey, a horse owned by the son of an English farmer who, at the beginning of WWI, was sold to the army to be a cavalry horse. The story follows Joey's harrowing and heart touching journey through the war and the people he meets along the way, both kind and cruel, both human and fellow horse.
From his kind farm boy, Albert, to the courageous Captain James Nicholls, to sure footed Topthorn, to sweet Emilie and beyond, Joey's encounters reveal the nature of people and animals during a time when the world seemed to be descending into chaos. Joey's journey reveals that even enemies share common ground when it comes to their love and respect of the courageous horses fighting to survive along side them.

But some reason, she felt like something was missing, like something just needed to be filled in that extra hole she didn't know was empty.
She turned around and it was her lovely sister Anna.
"Hello Anna" she responded back with a small smile.
Anna had a worried look on her face. "Is there anything wrong?" She asked.
