The jungle was hot, wet and filled with all kinds of beasts from roaring feline carnivores to itty-bitty biting insects. The screaming monkeys were stealing our food if we didn't look out and the colourful birds were using our tents and vehicles as toilets.
"The enemy is located south-west of us," the mortal scout reported, wiping sweat off his cocoa-brown forehead. "There is a shallow valley-like pit where the river Gaodanza meets the river Livontos. That's where the main troops are."
"How are they equipped?"
"More guns than us, three Falcon class helicopters. No chariots."
Marital Arts Part 18 - The Fruit of Lost LoveThe Atlantic Ocean seemed unusually fervent that midmorning, heavy breakers spraying froth over rounded rocks, colouring them black and shining with wetness and sending droplets cascading high up in the air, before withdrawing in a whirl of drenching green flurry. The sea spoke forcefully of restiveness and alteration, of the approaching autumn and the storms to come with it. There was a tang in the air too, a reminiscence of the summer which was coming to an end, a biting chill which nipped the noses and the chins of the man and woman on horseback who were taking the meandering track across the dunes, enjoying the solitude of twosomeness inMarital Arts Part 18 - The Fruit of Lost Love in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Marital Arts Part 17 - The Motherly AdviceBy the table in the Royal Breakfast room, beneath huge chandeliers with a few candles burning, Princess Aziel was sitting with her sister Princess Alselane and their cousin, Prince Iardanel. They were talking yesterday's festivities over, as Uriel walked into the room, retrieving a china plate from the buffet and starting to fill it with food, before stopping and regarding his son and nieces.Marital Arts Part 17 - The Motherly Advice in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Morning," he paused and became greeted with the same word from the trio by the table.
"You look tired, uncle," Aziel went on, tilting her head as she regarded Uriel while he finished gathering breakfast and sat down opposite of the others.

With one sweep, he took her into his arms and kissed her, unbridled joy and relief on his face. He wasn't about to let anything come between them again.
"I love you too, Titi! When the moon falls into the sun is when I'll stop loving you. This is my promise and oath." He gazed into his true love's green eyes, knowing they reflected the feelings in his own heart. "And I am truly sorry for not being with you for the baby deliveries the
Marital Arts Part 14 - The Point Of No ReturnThe pale silver rays of moonlight crept into the shadows as night descended upon the Palace whilst the moon ascended in the starry night sky. With the moonlight the water sprites came from under the sea and their melodious song now echoed through the forests, the mountains and the villages of Cloud Island, creating happiness in the midst of the people dwelling there. And in the Palace the merriment went on, allowing most participants to forget about their weekday worries and loads of demands.Marital Arts Part 14 - The Point Of No Return in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Not all. Carrying a night lantern, Titania was ascending the large palace stairs in solitude, leaving the festive buzz of the celebration behind and en
Marital Arts Part 22 - The Plausible Lie"I'm sorry, my King, but you cannot go in there," Doc Sidor's assistant Lanexa stopped Oberon and Titania respectfully but steadfastly in the door opening to Iardanel and Elanna's bedroom, holding up a slender hand to mark her words. Her face was pallid and bore a regrettable look as she slowly shook her head, strands of blond hair having escaped her bun.Marital Arts Part 22 - The Plausible Lie in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"How bad is it?" Titania asked as she took in the other gathered members of the Royal Family. There were the lion's share of Uriel's family sitting on coaches and chairs or standing leant against the walls, together with Lynatra, CloŽ and Aziel, the latter red-eyed from crying extensively an
Marital Arts Part 20- The joy which became sadness"This must be the week of revelations," Lorelei said to Uriel as they were regarding a servant feeding the birds in the aviary, flutter of colourful wings and eager chirps filling the air. "First Ariel and Orkid and now THIS. Who would have thought that of Titania? The upright Queen of the Elves."Marital Arts Part 20- The joy which became sadness in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I would," Uriel replied solemnly, squeezing his wife's hand. "And not only because I might have gathered some intelligence regarding my mother's doabouts in Briton, but because I felt I had to ask her. I had to hear from her own mouth that it was not just an infatuation. That this Human truly meant something to her."
"And he died! What a t

"Mother, would you let it go if you were me?" CloŽ asked, knowing that Titania would do no such thing.

Life is a black and white movie
The gutters are wet, reflecting the neon
Red letters and below them some blue
marketing a brand of beer which tastes like pee
One letter missing
If fizzes and spatter static
And the stray cat hails the sound
Beleiving it an enemy
But there's no enemies here
And old memories
Stored away dreams in a cupboard
Crashed sagas like trojans on a harddrive
Allahs prison is that old computer in the closet
A PC from 96 with the plug pulled
And the hull yellowed by time
The dustworms live there now
Checking their email
Cuddling up for the night
Borrowing our memories

Thomas Silvestiri was standing by the railing of his good friend Orkid of Saphirion's beautifully sleek ship Green Eyed Mermaid as it was heading across the glittering Atlantic, snow white sails billowing in the wind, the steam cutting through the water like a knife through butter. It was a good day for sailing, a strong but cold and salt-smelling after-storm was blowing from the rear and a light rain was falling from the almost overcast sky, god rays of sunlight shining through parted clouds and flecking the green sea with discarded golden coins across a lawn.
Thomas pulled at the collars of his jacket and then at his scarf
