With Storming the Farm over and two weeks before I had to go back to work at the library and back to class, I had a lot of time on my claws. So I did what any guy my age would do, anything that popped into my head. I dont think I made a lot of bad choices, I just may have rushed into a few things. Well enough of that, time to tell you what happened next.
My head felt like crap, a dull ache pounding in my skull. I didnt want to open my eyes. My muscles screamed at me not to move them and my joints popped every time I did move. There was a mild burn in my veins from the adrenaline that was long since gone. Ah, Sams apply named airsoft hangover. Any airsofter get these, the after effects of playing the game. Its even worse after Ops.
You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn't wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, and life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face I will see in my life, and it will be the best thing I see in my life. I know it already.
Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about me! ...He wasn't hap
Lana was a reluctant volunteer for the procedure. Either aid her eccentric professor in this experiment or fail and drop out of college. She had little choice in the matter. Her seemingly mad professor injected her with a special serum designed to alter the human anatomy to mimic that of a fox. Why a fox? It is a creature of high intelligence, grace, beauty and an amazing ability to survive. However, the serum produced unfortunate side effects. For one, hyper fertility! Not only was Lana now smarter, more agile and able to sense the presence and movements of anyone in the same building as her, she was now capable of breeding in litters... Too bad she forgot to refill her prescritptio
How did I get in a cave? I thought.
I stood up and realized something was wrong. I was still a dragon, but my night clothes were gone. I was naked. Granted still nothing to see but scales, but still I didnt like it. I walked out of the cave into the daylight. It was quite a sight, the mountains, the hills, the valley, all covered by trees and grass. To top it off, a beautiful blue sky with just the right amount of puffy, white clouds. I couldnt shake the feeling like this was an illusion, something was showing me this. I dont like to be played with.
Okay, nice view. I
Come on, it was only a little one. I said.
It was loud enough to give me a heart attack. said Pat as he grabbed his chest.
Oh, youre fine. Come on, its quite a drive to St. Louis and we have to get going early.
Okay, but no more roaring.
It was tricky to figure out a way to fit four humans and an 8 dragon into one car. I wished we still had the Oldsmobile, that thing was huge. All we had was my truck, Dads GMC Sierra and a Kia Sophia. We decided that the only way this could work is if I took my truck and Pat, while everyone else rode in the GMC. It was fun to squish back into my truck, its not that bad. I like driving, so ge
"No, Astartes, we are not being followed."
"How can you be sure? You didn't even look!" Astartes whined. Struggling to turn in the saddle behind his father, Astartes craned his neck to look back through the night. The dirt track meandered this way and that, winding through the Emberfen Forest. The path was hard to make out amongst the muddy browns of the woodland, made all the more difficult by the thick canopy obscuring the glow of the stars and moon overhead.
Nicolas shook his head, scratching idly at his flame-red moustache. "Don't let your eyes play tricks on you, son there's nothing out there."
Beneath them, the horse continued its steady walk as if it were plodding around the yard back at the family home. 'If an animal doesn't seem bothered, then why can't I shake the feeling that something isn't right?' Astartes scolded himself.
Trees stood to attention as far as the eye could see in the night, which wasn
i. The first gift he gave her was a pendant that symbolized fertility, and it was the first time something of material value brought her comfort. She wore the necklace just above her chest, because nothing could get in the way of him finding his place in her heart.
2. He was the man she had always hoped for, ever since her childhood days of imagining friends and creating worlds where they could live in peace. This world wasn't meant to be her playground, and she knows the people in it will never bring her peace.
ii. She spent every day designing their future together. The walls of their bedroom would be a pale yellow to suit the boy's tastes, and the first token of his love would still be around her neck, clinging to the
