How Barney met MollyIt was a dark rainy night that made Molly look for refuge somewhere. The thunder and lightning scared her, and that pushed her to take desperate measures. For instance, clinging to an unknown human’s shoelaces.How Barney met Molly8 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
She had tried to take cover from the storm in a small hole in the wall, but it was snatched from her by a rat. She remained as close to the wall as she could. Every time she gathered enough courage to try and move, a gigantic shoe would scare her back to the safety of the wall.
She was about to give up and try to fight the rat when one of the human passerby stopped right in front of her. He seemed to be talking to other humans, she didn’t particularly care. All she felt was the cover of the umbrella on top of her. It felt so good to not feel the rain falling on top of her. Without thinking, she approached the massive shoe. This was her chance and she wasn’t going to waste it.
She climbed on top of it and snuggled in the shoelaces crisscrossing pattern. She had

Today’s the day! Hug a Human Day was finally here!
Three months ago, I was trading my homemade hair dye for a new pair of pants (I can't sew for my life) at the borrower’s market in the sewers when I heard some borrowers talking about it. I had passed it over as a stupid holiday since we were supposed to stay hidden from humans but I accidentally memorized the date. It’s like when someone tells you their birthday and you forget the next minute but if someone says pee cures jellyfish burns you’re definitely going to remember THAT for the rest of your life.
Anywho, as my first time ever to do this, I was going to make it special. For today’s hugging, my victims were going to be the Avengers.

Cold and wet days never mixed well together.
Her previous human—who left her and her siblings in the box with an "Adopt Me!" sign—was kind enough to put them underneath a tree and lay a towel at the base of their box. Earlier that day, the weather had been exceptionally nice, so they needn't worry about getting sick from rain. However, no one could always predict the weather, and just as the warm air had gone…so had her siblings.
Pet adoption was always a hit-or-miss: one either got picked or they did not—it was as simple as that. Usually, humans—who were the potential adopters—would choose the ones of the litter who they

No world is perfect. Not even a world where giants and humans coexist. There’s still bullying, belittling, bankruptcy, business frauds, lying, cheating, stealing, killing; everything that I imagine a sin-ridden world would have. We’re lucky though, because here on Tare, our blemished, beautiful planet, there are laws that punish those who do wrong. We’re fortunate, because for every criminal, there are at least three law enforcers. We’re blessed, because it’s not often that we humans are terribly endangered by the giants that surround us. In fact, we’re more of a plague to them than they are to us.
Let me explain myself.
My name is Ellie Parker, and I am a descendant of one of the one thousand humans who were sent to live on this planet after earth was so brimming with war and hatred that no one could live in safety. Of course, that was almost four hundred years ago. While we do have the knowledge of space travel at hand, our civilization is on

" .One down fifty six more to go " Jason sighed heavily as he set down the electrical engineering textbook and slumped back into his desk's chair. His notepad now held a full-scale circuit unit for a high end voltage electrical switch, hooked up to several others. It mazed around his page and he finished it off with a few labels here and there. He had been reluctantly working on that for the past hour and a half, and just when his spirits raised at its completion, they came crashing back down as he glanced over the assigned work.

I remember when I was younger I used to think it was cool that I was adopted into a family of giants after my parents passed. They were a good family and it was a time in history when giants and humans were finally starting to co-exist. There were still plenty of segregated areas across the country but where I was going was not one of them. I was ten when I was adopted and at first – it was the coolest thing. I had a giant father, who could scoop me up with one hand and a mother who could literally drape me across her lap when I was feeling blue. I even had a little sister – only two years younger than me who I loved to play with. I didn’t mind being the ‘doll’ in her games because she was always old enough to know to be gentle. Sarah was important to me and even though I’m barely the size of one of her hands now, I wanted to protect her.
But at seventeen…those feelings were

“Oh, I give up. Who are you?” I shouted to the mysterious shoes.
The owner of the shoes must not have noticed me before because he gasped. I tried to look up at him but my neck hurt from bending so I would have to wait to know how he looked like.
Thankfully, the wait wasn’t for long because the guy crouched down to see me and I saw him better. He looked to be a balding middle aged man in a suit and looked quite badass from my first impression of him.

They had been in that motel room for three days now. At first, Oscar thought it was just one guy. The really tall human that stomped around with a confident swagger. And who appeared to have more than a few weapons in that huge duffel bag he’d brought in. Oscar had checked it out one time, just to see if the guy kept any snacks in there.
He had looked like just another one of those rugged road-tripper types that came through all the time.
The revelation of the guns and a lot of salt (seriously, the guy was going to have serious blood pressure issues if he actually used that much salt) had been both horrifying and intriguing. So, in spite of himself, Oscar had gone back to scope out the room a few more times. That’s when he had seen him. Another tiny person, just like him. Though … he was pretty t

Dean groaned and turned to the other side. He was allowed about five more minutes of sleep before the voice turned to the other side and spoke again.
“Uncle Dean, wake up! You promised!”
He blearily opened one eye and the tiny blur in front of him slowly cleared into his frowning tiny niece. Closing his eye again, Dean heard tiny protests coming from his pillow.
“No Uncle Dean! Don’t you fall back asleep! YOU PROMISED!”
Suddenly, he felt tiny hands gripped into his eyelashes and pulling them with all their might.
Dean pulled back and rubbed his eyes. It was useless to go back to sleep now that he was too awake to even doze off, so he gave up on that idea.

A Borrower's Quest - First ContactsIt’s been exactly ten years, since the humans discovered us. Hundreds of years of hiding and fear finally came down to the events of that year. But strangely…it didn’t involve any violence, cruelty or experiments. These gigantic creatures who rule over the world, and there’s nothing that could ever stand in their way…reacted not with hate or disgust, but with compassion and kindness towards my kind. When our parents realized that the humans know of us, all of them started to search for new homes, either in another human home or in a forest if their fear was simply to huge to be around those creatures any longer. They expected humans to try to wipe them out with chemicals, or catch them with traps for scientific research. But after a while, they noticed that they aren’t being hunted, or chased in any way.A Borrower's Quest - First Contacts7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

Getting ready for a first date is always a challenge.
Particularly when your father is a giant.
“You're getting awfully dressed up for a night out with the girls.”
I turned around from the mirror and glanced over at my father with a weary expression. A difficult task considering he was almost fifty feet tall. He filled up the massive doorway with easy and his salt and pepper hair hung clumsily around his eyes. He narrowed his light brown eyes, scrutinizing me from the safety of the doorway. Despite having a room sized for giants, my father always had a thing about entering my room. Clearly, I wasn't on the floor, but since mom had passed, he had been more awkward than ever about close interaction.
“I didn't say I was going with the girls,” I called over, still focusing on my make-up. Just a little mascara, a little tinted lip balm. Nothing fancy. Luke
