Ibeji's Wrath Chapter 3
Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji's Wrath
Chapter 3
De La Salle High School:
The lunch bell barely finished ringing before the halls of the large high school began to fill up with students of the new school year. Freshmen nervously looked around, doing their best not to get trampled while trying to finding the cafeteria. Sophomores greeted one another with relief, glad to finally get used to their surroundings and seeing familiar faces. Juniors expertly glided through the halls, barely giving anyone else a passing glance while the seniors casually took their time and walked with an air of superiority and importance.
Although the new year was still fresh, there were already posters and flyers of upcoming high school football games, concerts, and contests. Talk of regret of Summer being over soon soon filled the air along with conversations of the latest movies, relationships, and celebrity concerts that they attended. A few moments later, the warning bell rung, making the students left in the h

Ibeji's Wrath Chapter 2
Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji’s Wrath
Chapter 2
Gritting her teeth, Aja slowly rose to her feet, all the while keeping her eyes on the two young-looking gods. How could she have been so lax? Why didn’t she sense them? She had always prided herself in having the best senses of the gods, relying on her quick reflexes and sense of danger. But now….how were they able to surprise her so? She knew that there was something was growing in power, was about to emerge, but she never imagined it would be these two.
For countless millennia, they were the ones who helped with childbirth in the mortal realm and were praised and feared when twins were born. They were revered for protecting children and innocence….but on the other side, they were also feared and spoken about in whispers about the mischief and mayhem they were known to cause….even to the point of driving some mortals insane, never to recover. They always appeared to the mortals as youngsters, but Aja knew how a

Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji's Wrath Soundtrack
Legacy Of The Gods: Wrath Of Ibeji Soundtrack
Kimi ga Iru Kara -  Performed by Shimokawa Mikuni, single from the anime Fairy Tail - I wasn't too sure if this song would fit into the theme of the story, but listening to it....I like it, and the youthful tone of it is perfect for the young age of the new characters. I love the beat as well. :thanks:
Oh My! - Performed by Seventeen - I've been getting into J-Pop and K-Pop, and I thought this song was amazing and perfect for the vibe and feeling of this story. You can't help but dance along to it. This would be a perfect ending theme if this was a show.
ODD Future - Performed by Uverworld, single from the anime Boko No Hero Academia - I love the raw feeling of this song and about doing your best. It fits in perfectly with the story. Absolutely amazing.
Regular - Performed by NCT 127 - This is one song I truly enjoyed and know that the younger characters in the story w

Ibeji's Wrath Chapter 1
Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji‘s Wrath
Chapter 1
After giving a long and loud sigh, 11 year old Gio Wilson flopped on his large bed, completely wiped out after a long day of school and baseball practice. He then rolled over and wiped the beads of sweat from his light-brown forehead and just allowed himself a few minutes to just breathe. Sure, it was great to be one of the star players on his junior baseball team, but it was just exhausting trying to keep up with everyone’s expectations. How did his mom, who was a former super model and traveled the world do it? When did she ever have time to sleep?
But still, it was something to keep himself busy, to keep the loneliness away. His older sister Hazelynn was still away at college in California, and even though it’s been only a couple of years, he still missed messing with her, making her mad and annoying the heck out of her. Sure, she would call and talk to their parents, and she would even say a couple of words to him, but i

Heart Of Igboju Chapter 22
Legacy Of The Gods Book II: Heart Of Igboju
Chapter 22
At first, Erin could only blink her eyes in disbelief, wondering if what she was seeing was real. Yes, she was overwhelmed with relief, but was this actually happening? Was Billie and her other friends finally awake? She didn’t know if she should say “hello” back or just wait for her impending death. So she just stood there in complete shock….until Billie stepped forward and placed a gentle hand on her shoulder.
“Erin? You okay? It’s me, Billie,” She gave her friend a concerned look, tilting her head.
At the touch, the French-descent girl finally knew that it was indeed happening. Her long-time friend did not perish as she feared, she was alive….alive and ready to defend their home and families from the impossible evil that Erin never imagined existed. By all science facts and logic, none of what she just saw should be real, these creatures and gods, yet here they were, and now her fr

Heart Of Igboju Chapter 21
Legacy Of The Gods Book II: Heart Of Igboju
Chapter 21
After landing on the hard floor of the blackened dungeon, Billie could only gasp in deep pain as she lay stunned for a moment. Despair entered her heart as she thought back on what she and her friends went through to find the powerful Madame Brigitte. Was this how it was going to end? To be completely destroyed by the very person they were setting their hopes on? The person who was the only one who could give them a chance in defeating Shigidi? It was hopeless, all of it. How could she have been so blind and foolish?
She couldn’t help a tear falling down her dark cheeks as she struggled to pick her head up. All of this...for nothing. So discouraged was she that she didn’t even see Brigitte raise her arm once more, the glowing and hot red whip ready to rip her apart. Too late did she finally manage to raise her head and see the danger coming….but she was filled with so much discouragement that she could barely brin

Heart Of Igboju Chapter 20
Legacy Of The Gods Book II: Heart Of Igboju
Chapter 20
With a scream, Erin fell to the carpeted floor, rolling until she slammed into the side of a wall. The broken broom stick she held fell clumsily from her hands, making her more vulnerable than ever. Panting, she slowly looked up to see one of the creatures who backhanded her away approaching her, victory gleaming in its eyes. For just a moment, the brown-haired girl was frozen, fear creeping in her heart as she imagined that this was the end for her. How did it come to this? Only a couple of days ago, she and Billie were just ordinary high school girls…..friends for as long as they could remember and dreaming about a future where anything was possible and they could be whatever they wanted to be.
They dreamed of inspirations for other young girls in sports, traveling to other countries in soccer playoffs and competitions, and finally, when the time was right, finding guys who would later become their husbands and help start a

Heart Of Igboju Chapter 19
Legacy Of The Gods Book II: Heart Of Igboju
Chapter 19
Grunting in pain, Shigidi stood up from the ground, dusting off the dirt from his shoulders and chest. He then turned and fixed savage, glowing green eyes on the group as they desperately fought to finish off the few remaining dream creatures. Anger surged through the ancient god’s heart, making his body start to shake with rage. Never had ANYONE, much less mortals, stood up against him like this. He had made an innumerable amount of mortals and gods cower before him, made them scream in fear until they had gone insane, never to come back from the dark abyss of madness.
But these young ones just continued and continued to defy him, to make a fool of him and disrupt his carefully thought-out plan he had waited many millennia to bring forth. How were they so powerful? How were they able to come this far against him when so many more stronger, hardened warriors fell before him in a crumpled heap within moments of stepping before

Hi there, I'm CaribbeanRose (formerly Rose74), and welcome to my little space here on Deviant Art! :D Let's see, a little bit about me...,well, I'm an aspiring writer hoping to get my stories published one day, as I hope to be an author that helps usher in Middle Grade and YA literature with more diverse characters that young readers and identify with and love. :thanks: I think it's time for popular series to feature characters that any child, whether from Africa, Brazil, China, or India, can see themselves and imagine they are going on exciting adventures with the characters, just like I did when I was younger. :thanks:

I was original born overseas, but I grew up in New York City...the Bronx to be specific, and I miss it every day I get up. I now live in Pennsylvania, which I completely detest. I do hope to end up back in New York one day. Other than that, I'm just your average person trying to make her dreams come true and practice my writing skills. I'm always looking for anyone willing to do requests and commissions for me, so please note me! ;) Thanks, and please enjoy your visit! :excited:
Hey hey guys! *looks at the date* Oh gosh, and it really been that long since I wrote a journal? It didn't seem so long ago, really! :O_o: But oh well.I hope every had a wonderful Summer this year (2018) and that you had a wonderful Halloween and Thanksgiving...those of you in Canada (October) and America (November). Oh, and thank you to all who sent me birthday wishes, I really appreciate it. Even though I didn't do much (as usual), it was fun reading your wishes. Thank you. :) Other than that, nothing's really changed. I'm still having a grand time writing Wrath Of Ibeji, and I also want to take this time to thank those of you who actually read and commented on my stories so far. You guys are amazing, you know how you are. Thanks for showing me that there are really great people here, with heart and're not here to just "OOOH!" and "AAAH! SO CUTE!" at the pics of those popular artists. You're one of those few here who actually care about other members here to struggle to get recognition. Thank you for commenting, it really make a difference. :thanks:

I'm still thinking about joining that website for writers (Society Of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators), which can be found here:

I'll be sure to keep you updated, those of you who read and comment. I have a really good feeling about that website and know it can help me.

On another note, my grandmother that I visited in Canada over the Summer passed away. It's kind of freaky, but somehow, I think fate must have arranged that me, my mom, and uncle see my grandmother....kind of like it was coming soon. She will definitely be missed, even though she was a ...well...difficult woman to get along with. ^^; Growing up, I knew I wasn't her favorite grandchild...she made that very clear, but I still appreciate hearing the life lessons and stories she gave to my other cousins and brothers. I can honestly say I learned a lot from her. Again, she'll be greatly missed.

Well, that's all with me. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May all your hopes and dreams for the New Year come true. :blowkiss: :wave:

Of course, you're truly talented and I can't stop staring at your art! :love: I've love to see your gallery grow. I'm even thinking of commissioning in the future, but I don't have PayPal. But we'll see. Please keep it up! :w00t!:

Thanks for the llama :happybounce:

I knew a llama once. At least I thought I knew him. I mean, how well can anyone really know anyone, much less a llama. With their air of mystery and thinly veiled contempt. It’s hard. But I digress.

His name was Kevin. But for reasons I will never understand, he would only ever answer to Albert. Identity issues aside, things started out okay. The usual introductory sniffing and sneezing went well, despite his allergies, but then things started going downhill during the ritual licking phase of the pleasantries. We pushed through. And had it not been for the spitting, we might have even been able to make it work, but alas, after just 3 seconds of bittersweet brotherhood, we finally decided to part ways. It’s kind of sad, when you think about it. Spitting seems like such an innocent thing to fight over, but he was pretty adamant that I should stop and that was just never going to happen. We might have overcome that issue, but Kevin, like all llamas, was very competitive. First came the stench competitions. Then it was belching contests. And lastly, a painstaking count to see which one was hairier. You can clearly see why our relationship was doomed. The poor fellow was a bit of a sore loser.

So he snuck out, taking with him a failed friendship, an obliviously optimistic dread of the future, and my sixth favorite toothbrush. Now that he is gone, I can honestly say, it's for the best. He was too much of a chick magnet anyway and who needs that drama? :shakefist:


Full disclaimer, as Kevin’s official biographer, a position of which he blackmailed me into (don’t ask), I’ve been instructed to inform you about his ongoing series. The journey starts here with The Kevin Chronicles - Chapter 1, and this gallery contains the rest. You should check it out. 

*End of cue card*


And don't worry, they're pretty short.
No pressure though, only if you want.
