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 Molly1 month 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.
Victim 1: Steve Rogers
This fine specimen was of the Homo Sapiens Attractivus that had the tendency to wake up early in the morning, therefore decreasing the possibility of swatting me away in his sleep. This male individual was currently cooking bre

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

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

“Sam?” Dean arched a brow and stepped around the bed asking, “Checking for monsters under the bed?”
Sam stood up, rolling his eyes, “Wow, that never gets old...I'm just looking for my tennis shoes.”
Dean wrinkled his nose, “You're not going jogging again, are you?”
Sam chuckled as he reasoned with his brother, even though Sam knew Dean wasn't going to listen, “It's good for you. Just get me a caesar salad or something.”
Dean turned around, muttering under his breath about how they couldn't possibly be related as he left the motel room.
Finally, Sam looked in the last place and opened the closet. His brown eyes lit up as Sam bent down and grabbed what he was looking for, asking himself, “Why did I put them in here?” He starte

" .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.

The giant then gently removed his bed covers, and gazed down at his bare stomach and breathed out sharply.
The sight before him was astonishing- a girl, a tiny little thumbing of a girl lay shivering on his skin… She had dark long hair, the color of a panther's coat, and skin (much tanner and darker than Christoph's) which was as warm and brown as golden hot chocolate.. Christoph felt his eyebrows furrow as he thought, 'How in the universe has such a little morsel ended up here?"

"Please, sir! I need- I need help!" the owner of the voice sounded desperate.. But Karl had absolutely no enthusiasm, no motivation whatsoever to look at the tiny being beside his ear..

Karl gasped as something soft touched the his ear tip. He sucked in a deep breath of air as the soft feeling traveled into his hair... He could feel tiny little hands, grabbing at his long strands of black hair, and he could feel the minuscule feet pressing into his scalp.

I was in so much trouble... I had ventured carelessly into a giant's territory- a large open field, filled with wildflowers. Of course, my safe haven happened to be a hell hole.
I whimpered helplessly as the warm flesh around me tightened.
"Shhhhh," he murmured softly, "Shhhhh..."
Despite his gentle words, I was still terrified. Was this giant planning on devouring me? Or planning to keep mr captive? These thoughts raced through my petrified mind- the overlapping thoughts made my stomach churn with absolute fear.
He had me trapped in his cupped hands. I had not even seen his face- I only had heard his deep voice, and felt his warm sweaty skin, and smelled his wine scented breath.
I was unarmed, wearing only my kitchen clothes... I felt exposed and utterly helpless in the giant's hands... The skin beneath my fingers was rough, I felt hundreds of callouses and a few scars as I attempted to stretch my weak arms.

It’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.

Molly was wide awake in an instant. As she looked around, she could tell she was in a human bedroom, on a nightstand to be specific.

Or at least that was what she did every morning, except it was nowhere to be found. Now she started panicking. This was bad, bad, bad… She was out in the open, with no idea on how she came here and without her backpack.
Suddenly the closet door swung open to reveal a neatly dressed human putting a tie on. He seemed oddly familiar but that wasn’t the important thing now. She looked around to find a place to hide, but before she could move, the human looked straight at her and smiled.

While this wasn’t all that unusual, what was unusual were the screams of the people in the store. I was on some hangers looking for spare buttons when everything went down the drain. People were running away from something, and I never knew what it was because my hanger was shaken to the point that I was sent flying. Everything was going so fast and blurry that I grabbed the first thing that was on my reach. I shut my eyes until the commotion passed. After a while, I heard nothing so I relaxed a little.
