Elle and Mias: Chapter 8To Elle's surprise, Mias gave up trying to catch her after only a few minutes. She waited behind a discreet broom closet door for nearly fifteen minutes before she squeezed herself out from under the door, shook her furry little body free of dust, and scurried over to the front door. She didn't care what form she escaped in, she simply wanted out. Once again she tried to push herself out under the door, but the front doors fit too well against the frame work to make a crack big enough for even a mouse to slip through.Elle and Mias: Chapter 8 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Ever the optimist, Elle ran through the entry to the back corridors and into the dining room. She remembered seeing a large balcony off the back wall. Perhaps the doors that opened up to it would be easy to get through.
She felt out of breath running a rather short distance, but managed to reach the doors without stopping to take a break. Again she tried to squeeze herself under the door and this time too, was unsuccessful.
She plopped down on her behind and stared up at
Elle and Mias: Chapter 7The sun approached the center of the sky as Mias and his steed came over the hill. The horse walked at any easy pace so as not to strain his rider. Mias was holding his left arm to his chest while mumbling an enchantment. He had underestimated his opponent this time, but thankfully suffered nothing worse than a dislocated shoulder. He'd already forced the joint back into place and was casting a healing spell to numb the pain and speed the recovery. Such injuries were annoying, just like the one who caused them.Elle and Mias: Chapter 7 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He finished the incantation and slowly stretched his arm. There was no pain. He grinned in victory over the wound and grabbed both the reigns. "Let's pick up the pace."
The horse whinnied and obeyed, breaking into a fast trot and then a gallop as he raced the wind back the estate.
Elle had completely forgotten about the time while chatting in the gardens with Abernos. They sat on a stone bench and talked about more cheerful things. To her delight, Ab
Elle and Mias: Chapter 6Elle awoke just before dawn. She had rolled onto her stomach in the night and had her limbs sprawled every which way on the bed. With Mias provided more than adequate warmth, the covers were pushed to the edge of the bed. Yet Elle now felt strangely cold. She tilted her head up and noticed her smock was on the floor with the rest of the clothes Abernos had given her. She then glanced at Mias who had his head nestled against the arch of her back.Elle and Mias: Chapter 6 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Filthy bastard," she said in a rough voice. Her throat and chest still ached, but at least her fever was gone.
She cautiously pulled herself out of bed, not wanting to wake Mias. His head dropped onto the mattress and thankfully didn't disturb him. Heaving a silent sigh of relief, Elle swung her legs over the bed and yawned. She rubbed her eyes and scratched her hair while she looked down at the floor. She noticed Mias' trousers had also mysteriously appeared on the floor.
Elle glared back at him, willing her anger to give him nightmares. He t
Elle and Mias: Chapter 4Elle awoke the next morning pleasantly refreshed. Though her lungs still stung from breathing heavily in the cold air, it was the price of freedom and it was worth every raspy breath. She sat up and yawned, stretching her arms up the quilts fell from her body and it was then Elle realized she was naked. Well, she still had her underwear on, but other than that she was bare skinned.Elle and Mias: Chapter 4 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She heard the light clinking of china and slowly turned her head to see Abernos standing with a tray of food and tea. His eyes were wide and his mouth was slightly agape with a tomato red blush on his cheeks.
"EEK!" Elle shrieked and pulled the covers back up over her body.
Abernos cried out too and quickly turned himself around. "I'm sorry! I didn't mean to stare!"
"W-Where are my clothes?" Elle blushed.
"Th-They were soaked so we took them off and hung them up to dry near the fire. They should be dry by now." Abernos set the tray down and crab walked over to the fireplace in the corner of the small room. O
Elle and Mias: Chapter 26Elle panted heavily as she ran. She knew Elias would pursue her, though she felt she now had the advantage being a small mouse in the dense underbrush. He'd have difficulty recapturing her, or so she thought. She was unaware of Elias' transformation and how he now trailed her in the form of a black viper.Elle and Mias: Chapter 26 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She hopped over a fallen tree and burrowed herself under the trunk to catch her breath.
"Here mousy, mousy~" she heard Elias' call rather smoothly as slid along the ground, flicking his tongue in and out. "I can smell you~"
Elle held her paws over her mouth to keep herself quiet and prayed Elias was bluffing.
"If you come out I'll make it worth your while. You're from another world, aren't you? Well, I may not be as talented as my brother, but I could arrange to open the portal and send you home. Just help me kill Mathias!"
"What happened to wanting to do me in all by your own hand?" Mias' voice broke the tension in the air as he appeared from the tree line with Leadbury and Ares.
Elle and Mias: Chapter 16Some force in the cosmos must have been off kilter that morning because Mias suddenly became civil company. During breakfast they had a pleasant conversation about the meal and the magic used to make it. Similar to the housekeeping spell, an enchantment was cast to read over recipes and then prepare the dish accordingly. The time of day and what ingredients there were in stock determined what recipes would be on the menu and each day the recipes were switched to add the spice of variety.Elle and Mias: Chapter 16 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Elle honestly found the whole system fascinating. The way Mias described the spell was by no means the result of a simple wave of a wand. It was a process that reminded Elle of how a computer program functioned: a detailed chain of possibilities woven into the system set to execute commands at the user's will. No wonder Elle hadn't encountered other sorcerers of Mias' level; they were as unique in this world as people like Bill Gates were in hers.
After breakfast, Elle returned to her room where she ba
Elle and Mias: Chapter 24Leadbury caught wind of Elias rather quickly and the pursuit began. Mias and Berenos riding atop Ares and Eris respectfully, followed behind the ghoul with hopes that their loved ones remained untouched by Elias' sadism.Elle and Mias: Chapter 24 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Just to be clear," Berenos said nervously. He wasn't accustomed to riding a horse and was thus concerned about what fair Eris would do if he offended her. "When we find Elias, what's the plan? If we confront him directly, he may hurt Abernos and Elle before we can get them away from him."
"I won't kneel to Elias' demands. He may torture them, but he won't kill them."
"You want them to endure such treatment?!"
"Now I didn't say that. He'll be expecting the two of us, but as for the ghoul, he will not."
"I'd appreciate it if you'd address me by my name Dormaeus brat," Leadbury interrupted.
Mias frowned. "Listen, when we find Elias, I want you to take the stag and woman and get them far away from the confrontation."
"Very well," the ghoul agreed.
"Will that manservant of
Elle and Mias: Chapter 13Duncan walked calmly through the forest with his arms folded behind his back. He was used to the night and stepped confidentially towards Mias' mansion. He had no clue as to what he was looking for, but if he came back empty handed, he'd be subjected to punishment from Elias.Elle and Mias: Chapter 13 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He spied the estate in the distance and thought it odd for all the windows to be dark at this hour. A large crow swooped down from the roof and cawed as he flew over Duncan's head. In all his years serving the Dormaeus, there was no mistaking the elegant way such a dark bird rode the wind.
"Here are your meals!" A well endowed waitress said cheerily as she placed the plates on the table for Elle and Abernos. The two had finally made it to the small farming village and their first stop was the local pub and inn for some food and hopefully a bed to sleep in. The atmosphere in the whole community was warm and inviting, so much so that Elle finally allowed herself to relax and get Mias off
Elle and Mias: Chapter 3The clear morning transitioned into a cloudy grey afternoon with a chill wind that held a distant promise of rain. Elle sat in a chair looking out the window, her thoughts focused on just how she should make her escape. While it would be in her advantage to wait until nightfall, she didn't know these lands and not being able to see properly would surely get her lost.Elle and Mias: Chapter 3 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Instead, she'd wait until it started raining so any tracks she made would be washed away. She'd repel down the side of the building using the bed sheets tied together and then run as fast as she could away from this place. Not an entirely complicated plan, but simplicity often proved to be far more useful. Now all Elle needed was nature's cooperation.
"Elle," she heard from outside her door before it opened and Mias leaned his head in. "Might you be interested in a tour of my lovely abode?"
"Come now, staring out a window for hours on end is hardly entertaining." He strode into the room and approached her side. "Avoi
Elle and Mias: Chapter 21They arrived back at Mias' manor roughly two hours later. The sun had already dipped behind the hillside and shadows were growing as the three climbed out of the coach.Elle and Mias: Chapter 21 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Your hair smells nice~," Abernos said in a rather high voice as Mias reluctantly carried the Stag out on his back.
Mias grit his teeth, wanting oh so badly to drop Abernos on his tailed behind, but dared not to while Elle had her eyes on the both of them.
"I'll take Ares and Eris back to the stables. Your spell will take care of the rest, won't it?" Elle asked.
"Yes, your packages will also be transported up to your room." Mias said as he trudged up to the front doors.
"You sure you don't need help with him?"
"I can handle him just fine, my dear." He forced a grin.
"Alright then," Elle patted Ares' muzzle and motioned for the horse to follow her. He did, still faithfully pulling the coach and his prospective mate behind him.
Mias unlocked the doors with a quick enchantment before pushing them open with his foot. He lug
Mias and Elle 2 Ch.7: CindersHis eyes are deceiving him, surely. This all must be some dream or horrible nightmare. This was what he could believe, what he should believe, after Azreal's death, everything was just a painful reminder of the way he was before he changed, slowly sucking him back into the shell of anger and hate that he had wrapped himself in for so long. He only came out of this shell when he was able to relax, through the haze of drink and rage when he could almost feel a calming presence beside him. But now, that calming presence was not beside him, she was here in front of him. The whole time as they fought, Elias could hear them, but not see them, as he had been a bit preoccupied with the horrible pain in his chest and body. It hurt to move, thank the gods his lungs hadn't been badly damaged because he could still breathe, though he held that breath now, as he crawled to her.Mias and Elle 2 Ch.7: Cinders in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Azreal?" He asks.
"No." I whisper, though he cannot hear me, and his eyes are focused purely on her, nowhere else. I don't want him near that thing. That isn't me.
I may have my humanity but that thing does not. There is so much evil radiating off of it that it makes me gag. Fire is spreading this way, but Elias doesn't notice. The thing however, notices me. She turns her golden eyes on me for a moment and smiles, it is a horrible, fang flashing grin that my heart pounds faster in my chest. Is this what I looked like? Was I really this evil? The thought that I appeared this way to everyone I came by makes me want to throw up or sob, but before I can do either, its mar

Mias ran a hand across his face and sighed, his heart was aching, mind still foggy yet racing. The kingdom of Sarian? How long had it been since he had been banished? How long since he had seen the inner walls of his child hood?
He shook his head and closed his bag of clothes, throwing it over his shoulder, and making his way out of the master bedroom and down the staircase.
He knew he should be in a state of panic. His father alive? Impossible, and yet there on that invitation was proof. Perhaps it was the universes way of letting him right his wrong.
The sword sheathed and hanging off his belt comforted him in his thoughts. Perhaps it was the universes way of telling him that he must again try to kill the king, maybe saving what was left of Sarian.
He got to the front doors and opened one, ready to take his leave on his steed when he was met with the most glori

She sighed, looking in the tall mirror before her at the pendant at her neck it was beautiful and for some reason she didn't want to take it off. The very thought of it made her queasy. She sighed while patting down her braid and straightening her maroon colored blouse. Her black skirt and boots were brand new and bought for her by Arian. Turning, she opened the door, and trotted down the hall, coming to a stop before him. "Ready." She nodded. They walked out the door, Arian going first, Elle following. The breeze was crisp and felt nice against her face, it made her want to go for a run but she decided against it as she and Arian were going to town.Mias and ElleCh8: A Devil In Disguise in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was only days ago that she had woken up not knowing where she was, or who she was. It had been terrifying, waking up without any memories. But Arian had been there, arms open and waiting to help her. He told her her name was Elle, and that he was her brother. Apparently she had f

"Aye! There be a blaze on the horizon, Captain!" He calls down from the crow's nest.
Elias, who was talking in a hushed tone to one of his more trusted crewmembers looks up, his eyes falling on the burning distance.
"Set a direct course." He orders.
The crewman at the wheel looks at him as if he were insane.
"But, sir! It looks bad! We really shouldn't concern ourselves with a-"
"SILENCE!" Elias barks. "I WANT TO BE THERE WITHIN THE HOUR!"
The crewmen scramble to head his command. I look back at the land and can only remember who lives there. Elias's brother, Mias and my friend...Elle at least...I can assume she is, seeing as how she seemed to take a liking to me from the first moments of our meeting, even though I slept with Mia

He gently kissed her cold lips. "Come back to me Come back."
He held her tight, never wanting to leave her side; he'd rather stay with her. He wanted to lie down and die if it meant he could be with her.
Suddenly he felt a hand touch his shoulder, "E-Elias I'm sorry She's gone." It was Elle's voice that spoke to him.
"Get away from us." He growled out. "Let me die here in peace."
Elle stepped back and was replaced by Mias, who bent down and pried Elias's arms from around Azreal, pulling him away from her.
"NO!" he thrashed, struggling to get free. "LET ME BE! I HAVE NOTHIHNG NOW! JUST LET ME lie DOWN AND DIE!"
Mias hauled Elias over his shoulder, still struggling. "I will not allow that."
Elias watched from Mias's shoulder as Elle followed behind not meeting his eyes, Azreal's body staying where it was. "No!"
He reached out his hand towards her, as if he could somehow pull her back into her body and bri

"Good bye my brother." He said quietly as Elle sobbed against his chest.
He looked down at her, filled with joy at the fact that she was here, in his arms yet felt so terrible that she was crying. A roar pulled him out of his thoughts. The tiger she had come with was battling fiercely with the beast. Their claws clashed and teeth met flesh, you could tell that the tiger was doing everything it could to keep the beast from advancing towards them. The thing raised a claw and pinned the tiger to the ground with it, its teeth aiming fast for the tiger's vitals. Elle moved quickly, grabbing Mias's sword from its sheath at his hip and sprinting for them.
"Elle! No!" He ran after her.
He watched as he drew closer. Elle jumped up and plunged the sword into the beasts jaw. It roared and shook its head violently, one of its hands flailing and hitting Elle, who flew back. The tiger was up and running, cushioning E

The door opened quietly and Mias stood quickly. "Yes?" The Healer whom the house belonged to came in and shut the door slowly. About Mias's Height he had brown hair to his shoulders tied back in a length of ribbon to keep it from falling onto his forehead. He had brown eyes and laugh lines around his face. He was a good man; Mias had known him for years and had gone to him with many of his injuries. "Has she fallen asleep?" Mias nodded and Arian gestured for Mias to follow him. Taking one more look back at Elle who lay asleep on her back, sweat beading on her forehead, sheets clenched in her hands, Mias followed Arian out of the room and down the short hall into the kitchen leaving his cloak on the chair.

"Looks like we won girl." then kissed her on the nose and turned to look out into the distance. Rolling green hills stretched out across the land, trees and lush grass blanketed the area, and just in the distance you could see the sea shinning in all its glory. Though, Elle did not have very happy memories of the sea. But before her thoughts could turn dark, Elle heard a galloping sound and looked over her shoulder to see Mias riding up on Yousery. "Look who finally decided to join us." She teased, turning to face him as he climbed off of his steed. "Excuse me sweetness but I do believe it was you who distracted me. Which, might I remind you, is called cheating." He laughed. Taking her into his arms and hugging her close, he leaned down and whispered into her ear. "Not that I minded." She laughed and turned in his arms to face the distance.Mias and Elle ch2:FalseVictory in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

7: Beauty and the BeastIt was nearly dawn when Edmund finally managed to get away from Mrs. Gibbs. The old cow certainly liked to talk, going on and on about her childhood as though Edmund cared in the least about who her parents were and where she had grown up. Mr. Gibbs was no better, prattling on about all manner of things, from horses to hunting to the weather.7: Beauty and the Beast in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
After sitting through several grueling hours of their mindless blather, he had excused himself, saying that the exhaustion of his ordeal and the anxiety over his wife had given him a dreadful headache, and so he was going to retire to his room for a few hours to rest.
Edmund took the hallway towards the guest quarters, glancing back to be sure that Mr. and Mrs. Gibbs weren't following, then he turned and headed down another hall which led through the dining room and into the foyer.
He crept up the stairs, darting quickly into the darkness of the hallway for fear that he might be spotted. The wind howled outside, making the heavy windows rattle.
5: Beauty and the Beast"If I didn't know you so well, Mr. Gibbs, I would think you were mad for being outside during such poor weather," Garrett said, pulling his thick leather gloves from the pocket of his great coat. "The cold is quite unbearable."5: Beauty and the Beast in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Garrett tugged his gloves on against the biting cold, glancing warily at the dark clouds swirling high above. Though the snowfall had ceased that morning, Garrett could sense the storm would be back with a vengeance by nightfall.
"I hadn't planned on coming out, I assure you," Mr. Gibbs chuckled. "But dear Tilly has been cooped up in the barn these past days, and with this small break in the storm I could not pass up the opportunity to take her out for a short ride. Isn't that right old girl?"
Tilly bobbed her head as Mr. Gibbs ran his gloved hand back and forth against her neck, leading the old mare along through the snow and towards the barn.
Garrett walked beside Mr. Gibbs in silence, his thoughts turning to Mr. Leonard and the letter that he had placed in th

"We're nearly there," Mr. Thorne shouted over the onslaught of rain. Beth nodded, unable to speak as droplets of rain hit her already numb face.
Beth leaned closer against Mr. Thorne, trying to soak up some of the warmth that seemed to roll off of him in waves. Though she shook violently against the cold, Mr. Thorne felt as though he was on fire, and she couldn't help but relish the warmth that his nearness offered.
He stiffened behind her as she held onto him, his grip around her waist tightening as his warm breath ghosted over her temple. She tilted her head and glanced up at him to find his hard unreadable eyes on her, his jaw clenching and unclenching.
There was something possessive in the way
4: Beauty and the BeastSunlight streamed through the large window and across the foot of the bed, and for a moment Beth forgot where she was. She turned onto her back, staring up through the canopy of drapes hanging across the four poster bed, her anxiety and frustration over her situation returning as the after effects of sleep wore away.4: Beauty and the Beast in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Beth hated how helpless she felt, trapped in a castle in the middle of a vicious storm that showed no signs of easing up. She sat up in bed and stretched her tired limbs, then scooted to the edge of the bed and pulled the blanket up around her shoulders against the biting cold of morning.
Since there was nothing she could do about her situation, she focused instead on the small things she could control, such as getting dressed and straightening her bed. She was certain that Fiona would be upset with her for cleaning up a bit, but Beth wasn't the type who expected others to wait on her.
Once the bed was as close to perfect as she could get it, Beth went to the armoire where
6: Beauty and the BeastWhen Beth woke she was afraid to move, uncertain of where she was or who might be with her.

She had the distinct feeling that she was not alone, and when she shifted her head slightly to have a better view of the large wingback chair that was near the window, her heartbeat quickening when she realized that a figure sat there--and she knew with certainty that it was Mr. Thorne.
Beth squeezed her eyes closed, trying to keep her breathing steady and even, willing Mr. Thorne to leave her alone so that she could assess her situation in peace and come up with a better means for escaping the castle and the mad creature that Mr. Thorne had transformed into.
"I know you're awake," he muttered. "So you may as well open your eyes and face me."
Her breath caught at the sound of his voice, which no longer sounded gravelly
2: Elle's EscapeMias stared at Elle's sleeping form beside him. She hadn't moved all nighthe knew because he hadn't moved all night either. He was still lying back against the headboard, watching her steady breathing and enjoying the rise and fall of her breasts beneath her lacy white bra. He had stripped her out of the gown she had been wearing, wanting her to be comfortable as she slept, confused as to why he cared about her comfort at all. His grin widened as her chest rose, deciding that caring about whether or not Elle was comfortable had to be the best damn idea he ever had.2: Elle's Escape in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sunlight poured through the open window, a slant of light cutting across the bed and Elle's creamy white legs. Mias adjusted himself on the bed, and Elle shifted slightly before going still once more.

For the past three days she had tried, to no avail, to find a way to break through the protection spell that was keeping her trapped. On the first day she had sprinted towards the open front door, hoping that she could break through with brute force and determination. Mias had been leaning over the banister, looking down at her with amusement. The instant she made contact with the open doorway she felt the empty space contract outwards as it gave under the force of her weight, before she was launched backwards into the manor where she landed without grace on her backside. Mias had roared with laughter, which she responded to with a finger that she hoped was universally known.
The second day was a day for experimenting. Elle decided to see if she co

Mias pulled up on the reins as he came up over a hill, giving him a perfect view of the rolling fields and cottages which dotted the countryside below. He patted his horse approvingly, glancing up at the moon and sucking in a lungful of air. He closed his eyes, allowing the sounds of the night to envelope him, letting the cricket song and the distant howls of wolves calm him. Yet his thoughts kept drifting back to Elle.
She was like no one he had met before in his life. She stood up to him, constantly challenging him and speaking her mind. It was refreshing, having someone so honest in his presence. People rarely looked him in the eye, their fear of

She wasn't usually one to feel sorry for herself, but Elias' spiteful words, rough hands, and unwanted kisses had taken their toll on her. Yet in spite of his constant cruelty, Elle was amazed at how she had handled things thus far, drawing on an inner strength that she didn't know that she possessed.8: Mias Finds Elle in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Drawing on that strength once more, Elle took in her surroundings in the hope that she would find something that could help her escape. After all, if what Elias had said about Mias was true, then she was in fact on her own. As she looked around the surprisingly large space of the cabin, hoping that she would spot something to aid in her escape plan, Elle held on to the hope that Elias had been lying. That seemed highly likely, given his behavior, but she wasn't going to pin her hopes on a possibility. As far as she was concerned, she was going to have to figure a way out of this situation herself.

3: Beauty and the Beast"You look like a princess, dear," Fiona stepped back so that Beth had a better view of herself in the full length mirror.3: Beauty and the Beast in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Beth's heart skipped when she looked over her reflection, barely recognizing the young lady who stared back. The gown she wore, though not cut in the latest fashion, was a rich emerald green that complimented her fair skin and rich brown curls. The skirt was full, the silk flaring slightly at the hips and reaching to the floor where the hem was stitched in an ornate pattern of golden ivy. The stitching continued up the skirt to the bodice, wrapping around it in a way that complimented her narrow waist.
The bodice was cut lower than the style that Beth was used to and was trimmed in black lace, and Beth couldn't help but feel self conscious about the amount of cleavage that it revealed. Yet Fiona assured her that it was not at all inappropriate, that it barely revealed anything at all, which relieved Beth somewhat.
Fiona had also managed to style Beth's unruly tresse

Invisible Artist is a ghost-like monster that is inspired by something I tend to see when I close my eyes.
It is not very easy to tell what he looks like, but he appears to be some sort of ghostly cat-like creature with a beret on his head and a smock, he has no legs only a ghostly tail, his eyes glow an eerie green colour.
Ever so sly and aloof, he is quite intelligent and creative with the way he creates his masterpieces and he treats his work as if it were his own flesh and blood.
He can phase through walls and also brings paintings and drawings to life as well as use invisible paints to paint his victim's faces or to change the world around him.
When he makes an appearance in a new dimension he usually chooses to manifest himself in art museums or in the homes of people who he considers to be creative.

Nivan's dreamNivan's dream in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was one of those realistic ones.
I mean... everything was so damn realistic in it, but in the real world its probability is less than nil.
Normally after dreams like that, when I wake up, I'm happy that in the end it was only the work of my imagination.
But today it was the other way around.
And I'm a bit shocked by that realisation.
The dream was a bit like a movie, like a slide show.
I had my own place but I lived alone. And that's not a promising outlook for the future. No matter how you look at it. The dream was abstract enough to hold on to the hope that the reality will be different. And I was older, not by much though. But I have finished Uni that was sure.
Now when I think about it I wouldn't want to live alone. To have my own place - sure. But be in those four walls on your own?
No. Definitely not.
I think I got addicted to company.
When they left for those three days, I was glad at first. But only half a day passed when I started to miss them.

A few words from the author:
The chapter below has come into being spontaneously, for fun, without the bigger concept of writing any more chapters. It wasn’t supposed to have any form of continuity, and the thread of Marcin & Nivan - the two heroes in this story - was meant as a note of spice in their created lives. Both characters were created for the purpose of a role playing game, both of them had partners in their lives as well as separate histories. And so it was meant to stay... in the beginning that is. But "Karma" wanted it different
After the unexpected warm reception of the first chapter the author decided to continue the story. She wrote the second and the third chapter intertwining the boys paths, added a few others and so the story took shape.
The author intertwines the lives of two men, best friends in the pas

I know the worries that collect in your life like beads on a string. Sometimes you even add worries that arn't yours to bring. These anxieties sap your energy, beloved.

Rest assured that I have everything under control in your life too. Just give me your worries, child. In exchange, I'll give you my peace.
Wise and discerningMy child, be on your guard. Many people are teaching nice-sounding messages-but messages that are contrary to my Word.

Diana could feel Michael's heavy breathing form across the couch and it made her comfortable. She sat and relaxed. Her thoughts drifted from her brother, the mafia, and the fear for her life into the movie.

It'd be a shame"Okay, mom." Harvey sighed before hanging up the phone and pacing around his room.It'd be a shame in Short Stories More Like This
Why did she have to call so often about if he'd found a girl? He was growing to hate that question more and more. Of course Harvey knew if he spoke up about how much he hated it to his mom and why he didn't have a girlfriend, she'd laugh her head off. Like before.
At the time, he knew his parents probably didn't mean to hurt him so bad but as a kid, opinions from his parents meant alot to him. So telling them he had a crush on Alfred was a big mistake. Their laughter crushed him. Them saying that was a nice joke made it worse. Even if he was seven, he had at least a bit of understanding about what love was.
Since then, Harvey kept his crush to himself. Nobody to know. Nobody to laugh at him. It was hard keeping it to himself and every once in awhile, he broke down.
Like now. He punched the wall in rage before sitting on the bed, crying a bit.
But he was surprised when the door creaked open and Robin look

"YES."Webster groaned,"So, the shovel."
"OkAy..."Nival passed a shovel over.
Webster starting digging into the sand, making a shallow, long hole.
"Alright. Get the sand." Webster ordered.
Nival collected the sand that was thrown aside into a bucket while Webster laid face down in the hole. Nival dumped the sand onto his brother, covering up half of him in sand. He sighed in annoyance, his brother did this every once in awhile when he got overly embrassed. Most recently, a Mabel person snuck up on Webster and creeped him out. As if planned, Nona saw the two and ran off angry. This was some Ariadoses way of hiding.
"What are you doing?" Bruce walked up to the strange sight.
"...HiDiNg My BrOtHeR." Nival shrugged and dumped more sand down.
"...Okay?" Bruce looked confused," You only covered half of him."
"Oh YeAh...."Nival stared,"WeLl, He NeEdS tO bReAtHe."

"Er, how long did you have to wait?" Jekyll asked, scared of the answer.
"A hour." Ross frowned and noticed how tired the Drifblim looked, "Why aren't you getting sleep at night?"
"I have been!!" Jekyll defended himself, "Just I wake up for a while but I'm a bit sore. So I have to sleep some more. I don't know- ughhh "
"More headaches?" Ross turned worried.
"Yeah Where's that medicine??" Jekyll looked about until finding a bottle of pills.
He swallowed a few before seeming a little better. Ross walked about the room, spotting things to clean up. He reached Jekyll's desk then saw a paper with barely understandable writing on it under a few other papers.
"Hey What's this?" Ross showed the paper to Jekyll while attempting to read it, "I had fun last night while out on the town. Sincerely Hyde. Who's Hy

"E-Erianthe?" Silverline stared at the Shaymin, a little annoyed, "What are you doing here?"
"Helping you out." She replied while taking him away from the fight," You were getting beat up."

Growing, Learning, UnderstandingI've learned so many things in my neighborhood. All from the most horrifying times, I admit.Growing, Learning, Understanding in Emotional More Like This
But if I grew up in a "perfect" and happy neighborhood...who would I be today?
The drug bus that came around my house = I learned to stay away from drugs.
The guy that shot me in the shoulder when I was 4 = I'm thankful I'm alive.
The coucelors that neglected me at that ol' day care = I learned to take care of myself.
The killer hobo with a drill = Stay away from them, and stick to your gun...literally..
See if I grew up in a perfect neighborhood, I wouldn't really be here to understand the things that you are going through today.
I even understand things that I haven't experienced..
Moral of my story is:
"Don't let the past dictate who you are, but let it be part of who you become"

Our broken brothers let us bring

No prayers pleading through the night
Just divine embrace, eternal light

We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
