I hated starting at a new school this year.
Senior year was supposed to be the most exciting year of my life well at least until I graduate college, turn twenty-one and get married. Senior year was supposed to be my year but my parents had changed all that when they enrolled me in the 'immersion' program. For so many years humans and giants had been kept separated from one another but now, not only were there enough giants in the world that they no longer could be homeschooled, but they were now being permitted to be co-educated.
I thought it was a great idea, in theory, but certainly did not want to be part of the immersion process. Not everyone was on board with this idea and I was aware of that. There were some giants that still believed that humans were either 'too fragile' to be around, or that they should be treated as though we were beneath them. It was our planet! I didn't understa

For twenty years, give or take, Carol Walding viewed conquering some certain fears as overrated; avoidance was just as commendable in her eyes.
So as she sat quietly in the large, solemn office, under the scrutinous gaze of the austere Colonel Jackson, she wondered what decisions in her life caused her to end up here.
"It's quite illogical, Carol." Colonel Jackson was a longtime friend of the family, possibly her father's best friend, but as he spoke with her that evening, his voice was leveled and professional; though he still had trouble concealing the underlining concern he held for her. "Your fear that is; it's irrational." He softly tapped the tip of his pen onto the desk and leaned onto his elbows; watching the girl carefully from across the table.
Carol slumped into her chair and sighed; she had been getting this conversation all week and she was growing ever tired of people telling her tha
Cat and Mouse Chapter 9Annabelle lay there in the park, the very same one that the demon had caught her in, finally free from being the toy she had become over the past week. She couldn’t help herself and took a moment to enjoy the relief of freedom from the tortures she’d endured. Molly’s voice was still pounding through her head, the demonic little girl making her cringe to even think about her. But she was free of that life now, and would hopefully never see her and her family ever again.More Like This
She sighed as she heard a rumble of thunder from up above, the clouds starting to sprinkle raindrops onto the ground. The cold wet drops felt both painful but relieving to her sore body, almost like an Icy-hot patch for her muscles. It had been hard work surviving as the little girl’s doll, and while she couldn’t bring herself to hate Molly (she was just a child after all) she couldn’t help resenting being her toy and going through all the torturous Dollhouse Dramas that she’d be
Cat and Mouse Chapter 4Annabelle wandered around the giant town, growing accustomed to living life at the size of a mouse and as an apparent delicacy that would be in danger the moment she was seen. It was a lot harder than she anticipated, living underneath the giants of the city. She usually had to move at night and find places to sleep in the day, and found that most food she could get was freshly discarded leftovers from meals that giants hadn’t finished. The living situation somehow felt dirtier than even where her home was, and she was constantly alert to make sure no one would find her.More Like This
It was a few days after the party that she found an unexpected stroke of luck. A family was packing a car with what looked to be luggage packed for a vacation, and she discovered them while she was wandering around a neighborhood during the twilight hours of the day. Working fast she hid behind a nearby brick wall to listen in to the husband and wife talking as they loaded everything up.
What she gathered was the
