Religion has been around since the dawn of man, and will probably still be around after
a cataclysmic event that sends mankind into another stone age. For you see, there has been
examples of religious beliefs in primates such as baboons and chimpanzees. There is also the
fact that there are graves that are ritual burials such as a 90,000 year old double burial
in a cave at Qafzeg, Israel. Another at Atapuerca, Spain which is considered the earliest burial by
Homo heildelbergensis. Neanderthals have also been known for carving stone idols and also have ritual burials
were they left stone tools and animal bones.
There is also the use of religious symbolism from Africa that is from a 100,000 years old Middle Stone Age site.
At that place there is evidence of the use of pigments such as red ochre. It has been argued that it is universal
among humans that the color red represents blood, sex, life and death.
The point is that the belief in a higher power is part of sent

I rolled my eyes and slammed my locker closed with a little too much force. "Don't you have somewhere to be Trevor? Like Sears? I hear they're having a sale on khakis," I retorted, walking passed him towards the main doors to freedom.
I was just about to push through the heavy metal doors when I felt his hand grab my wrist, jerking me backwards. I lost my footing and fell back against his chest, my free hand waving around in the air in front of me.
"Let me go."
"Why would I ever do that?" he asked seductively in my ear, wrapping his other arm around my waist so my back was pressed against his chest. I could feel his warm breath against my skin.
"Someone will think you're holding my hand or worse, hugging me. You wouldn't want to ruin your reputation and I really just don't want you touching me so I suggest you let go before I kick you where it hurts," I threatened, lifting one of my feet to show off my four-inch platform black combat boots

Eragon sat on his surprisingly comfortable throne while he listened to his fellow riders discuss the events and politics of Alagaësia and the other known lands.
The room was large, tall and dark, illuminated only by coloured fire that circled the room behind the seated riders. Each rider sat in similar, yet smaller seats than Eragon and wore clothing respective of their cultural backgrounds with colours that represented their dragons scattered among their person.
Eragon himself was wearing his usual dark leathers, a green tunic similar to the ones he wore in Ellesmera centuries ago, underneath a mountainous indigo cloak layered with wolf furs and armour that rested on his shoulders.
He watched as his riders told of the peace and conflict throughout the surrounding lands, a sense of pride swelling throughout him as he listened to Rider Kadvar, a Kull, tell of his victory in the south. He had protected the harvest of the southern villages from raiding bandits. Having trained Kadvar

I couldn't take it anymore. Alexander had been in Hipsterville too long,returning Valentine to his siblings. Sure I could just be clingy, but ever since Alexander had turned me, I wanted to be around him every second. There was nothing keeping us apart. Except him. I didn't understand why I couldn't go along with him. I was a vampire now. It's not like I was in any danger, but he explained that it was because of Jagger.
What could Jagger do now that I belonged to Alexander? That made me wonder.. What would happen if he did try to take me from Alexander, even though he bit me on sacred ground?I realized Alexander never explained to me that part of the change. Was it just some sort of bond they had that made the two not want to break the bond? But that still didn't answer what would happen if they someone outside the bond, tried to break it.
Finally, I couldn't sit around any longe

Like a bat in flight
Like a knight of the night
My heart skips a beat
Like a high-flying kite.
Dark chocolate eyes
That tell no lies
A wonderful smile
But that's no surprise.
He has no reflection
Gets garlic infection
They think he's alive
What a deception!
Coffin for a bed
His favorite drink
Is deep crimson red
Like a bat taking wing
The night's dark king
My heart skips a beat

Hart, lost in thought, stood behind the wheel of his ship. He didn't need to steer, so his hands lay rested on the wheel. His crew was at work beneath him, making a lot of noise as they always do. To the right of him stood Ince, clothed in a white, loose dress. They had pillaged it earlier, but it was worthless up until this point. Once worn by Ince, it looked like it could have belonged to royalty. Hart admired him as Ince stared out into the horizon.
"What is on your mind?" Hart asked with a warm smile on his face.
Ince turned around to face him, his dress twirling in the process.
"My brother..." Ince began.
"You have siblings?" Hart questioned.
"I'm not sure. I do not remember having a family," Ince began to walk circles around Hart as he spoke, "but he was like a brother to me."
"Did something happen to him?"
"We got separated. The last time I saw him, we were being followed by your ship," Ince answered. Hart chuckled as he remembered how he had been chasing Ince, for he was so des

You never knew me. You didn't know that I existed on the same planet as you, you were too small to understand the scope of the Earth. You lived in your secluded and sheltered circle of friends and family, as children do, merry and healthy, bright and focused. Not one of you had even an inkling that there was such a great, wide world, ready to be explored, and now, you never will. Tragically, unlawfully, disturbingly, you have each one of you been removed from the painting, inked out and painted over before you achieved any of your hopes and dreams. You will not be able to close your eyes and wait patiently for the day you grow up, the day you will marry, the day you in turn will hold a tiny, squirming body waiting for a name, so their light may shine.
You were taken before you were able to create lives for yourselves. And while you'll never get the chance to meet me, never be able to allow me the pleasure of holding your hands, or listening to your favorite bedtime

7. - If Erza DOES get angry for any reason, I should vacate the premises immediately.
8. I will not ask Gray to strip.
9. - If in the highly likely event that Gray DOES strip on his own, I will not shout out Yeah, take it off, Thats what IM talking about, or anything of the like.

Jamie bent over, very close to Jack's face. He stayed like that, without speaking. The spirit didn't give a hint of sensing him, his features contracting in torment. The child suddenly understood what Jack had felt, all those years peeking behind - beyond - the window, begging for a single answer to his hopes, to his efforts. The roles had been shifted. Now the rascal was on the other, unreachable side of the glass, unaware that someone was trying to communicate, waiting for a sign that may never come. It was so unbearably painful. When Jack's eyelids flickered and his features warped in a grimace, Jamie sobbed, unable to contain the searing grief.
No, I can't cry. he told to himself. He wiped his eyes clean with the sleeve. It was his turn to be strong.
he whispered .
The three hallways that linked the elevators with the chamber were filled with darting yetis, who were shouting in their unintelligible language. The elves were being drawn away, to avoid further complications.

Nothing can help
escape the feelings I have
A demon I am
a demon I shall be
It has not escaped me
Until evil has arrived
Let no evil near me

This demon has yet to be revealed
This demon is deep inside me
killing every part of me

So let no evil near

This demon is powerful as ever

The blonde was tied to a chair with a large distance separating him and the mermen. He was unable to get closer to them and attempt a rescue because the chair was connected to the ship.
"What am I going to do?" the young man thought. His eyes came back to Cyan and the other merman. The poor merboy's eyes were red and puffy from crying. Cyan's worried eyes caught his own.
"It'll be okay," Skye told him, but he had no plans of escape. He looked back up at Hart, who had not changed.

caused the rope to cut deeper into his wrists and he felt blood trickle down his fingertips.
His deep green eyes were fixed on Ivan.
Ivan didn't look up at the renagade demon twirling the dagger. He turned his violet slitted
gaze towards Desmond. He didn't care what happened to him, or if he died, just as long
as he knew Desmond would be safe. He should never have brought Desmond into this,
and he never regretted anything so much in his life. He just wanted to know that the

That would make Aric happier they seeing the demond dead. Plus, it was, by far, more fun.

His pale body, nearly glowing in the moonlight that entered through my bay window, he smirked as I ravished him with my eyes. From the crown of his head, to the tips of his toes, this man exhumed perfection. To have him laying naked on my bed, awakened a beast that had been lying dormant.

I crawled over him and took his face between my hands, lifting his head up, I mashed our lips together, kissing him roughly. I took his lower lip between my teeth and nibbled on it until I heard him whimper, which was when I released him and moved on to his neck, sucking and biting hard enough to bruise him for weeks.
