Ibeji's Wrath Chapter 7
Legacy Of The Gods: Wrath Of Ibeji:
Chapter 7
Sighing, young Arian wrapped her arms around her knees as she pulled her legs up to her chest. She was alone, sitting comfortably on her bed and she was glad to have that bit of time to collect her thoughts and try to figure out what was going on. It was just a couple of days since the last attack, and the young girl was on edge that another one would happen at any time.
She sighed again, holding herself tighter and willing the tension and suspense to just go away. The Yoruba gods…..the Ibeji...all those stories that her grandparents used to tell her and Billie were suddenly all so real, and the dark-skinned girl with the long, braided ponytail just didn’t know what to make of it. Sure, she had loved hearing those stories when she was little. They were fun and she was sure her grandparents and parents only told them to her so she could behave. But for them to be real? It was all impossible to think about. But deep down, she knew

For a few moments, every could only stare at where Kehinde landed on the street, completely in shock. But the most shocked of all was young Arian, her dark eyes wide. Did she make that happen? How? Slowly she brought her hand to her face stared at it, almost expecting something magical to suddenly shoot out. Her arm slowly fell to the side as she then turned to Isaiah and the others, blinking. “What’s...what’s going on?” she whispered out.
Strangely, she wasn’t as scared as she was just moments go. In her young heart, she knew that by now, she should have been curled up in a ball, crying and begging for her mom. But she wasn’t afraid now. She just wasn’t. She was about to say something more when the gentle yet confident voice spoke once more to her.
You have done well, little brave one, the voice said, soothing her and slowly giving her confidence. You have shown how much you care for your friend

Lusher Charter School:
Yawning, Arian slowly made her way to her classroom after lunch, hoping the afternoon would fair better than the morning. Why did it seem like the week was going so slow? After a really restless night last night, the last thing the dark-skinned girl wanted was to sit through another afternoon of boring lessons and kids that gave her strange looks because she was new. Besides, something just felt really….off for some reason. She had tried to tell her mom and aunt about how it, but her mother insisted she get out of the house instead of being locked up in the house all day by herself. She laughed it off, but Arian did catch that concerned look in her Aunt Clara’s eyes, as though she had a little idea of what the young girl was trying to say.
But she brushed it off as well and agreed that she should get going. The girl sighed and left the house, wondering if there were times her cousin Billie felt this way an

Chapter 4
Seconds lasted an eternity as Lindsey tried to understand what was going on. Was she losing her mind? Is this what happens to everyone when they were about to die? Oh why did it have to be now? She was so happy to finally be in high school, to make new, wonderful friends like Luzanne and cheer on her cousin Antonio with hopefully his new fiance. But now all of that was going to end. Despair and heartbreak flowed through her, making her want to sink lower into the ground.
But the voice in her head was relentless and would not be silenced. Get up! The voice was definitely male with a commanding tone that did not appreciate being ignored. Lifting her head a little, Lindsey quickly looked around, sure that this was her final moments.
“Who are you? Who’s there?” she whispered, feeling just a bit of hope. Could this be something that could save her?
I’m Shango, the Orisha god of lightning and thunder, and I can help you.

Egyptian Christmas Chaos....
Egyptian Christmas Chaos
Grinning happily, Tari placed the final tinsel decoration on her window, finally giving her apartment the festive, Christmas look she wanted. Yes, she was having her Christmas party a little late, but it was better than never, wasn’t it? Besides, it’s not like Christmas parties were happening all over Egypt right now, so a couple of days late wasn’t really a problem. Despite quite a large group of Christians living in one of the most ancient countries in the world, Christmas wasn’t exactly the most popular holiday in a country that’s been settled Muslims for hundreds of years.
Deciding to put that thought out of her mind, Tari grinned one more time in satisfaction as she spun around her house and took in all the decorations she painstakingly put up over the past few days. Yes, this will be quite a belated Christmas party, just like she wanted! Not only were friends and family coming…..from back home in America and the friends

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

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

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

Personal Quote: "Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eyes. Always be true"

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, yup, it's me.  :wave: Yeah, I know, it's been a while, but to tell the truth, there isn't isn't anything interesting in my life to write about like most people here. ^^; Well, there IS one thing though. I'm about to have surgery next month in March, which I'm a bit nervous about. I haven't had surgery like this since I was about 7 months old back in my country. I'm glad I can't remember, because from what I've been told, it was really major and took a long time for me to recover. But this surgery thankfully is not as major as that. *sigh* I'm trying to stay positive about it, and I've been told that after it, I'll feel much better and even be able to control and maintain my weight, which I've struggled with for many years. So yeah, crossing my fingers. :fingerscrossed:

But other than that, I'm here. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, holiday, and Valentine season and still sticking to your New Year's resolutions. :aww: I know I am. For this year, my resolution is to be more positive and not let depression overtake me so much. If things work out, things could change in a big way for me this year, especially in getting out of this dump town here in PA and back home to New York. But again, crossing fingers. And I'm still working on the spin-off to my Legacy Of The Gods story and looking for anyone who is willing to do commissions. Please note me for details. I know there are artists out there looking for where are you? :shrug:

I'm just about ready to join that website for Children's Books authors. I really think this will help me get the recognition and feedback I need to gain more confidence and connections in getting my stories published. While I will still drop by Deviant Art every once in a while to see how the few friends I have here are doing, I honestly feel I have outgrown DA and to be honest.........I'm getting sick and tired of "sucking up" to certain "popular" artists here, the weird fetish art of fat, engorged girls, bondage, feet, and nudity. DA has sadly become just a popularity contest where only art of certain characters, lifestyles, said fetish are commented on and liked, and other artists follow in that footstep so they can look "cool" and be popular too. In the end, it's the artists who truly have amazing art, who show great talent in original characters and stories who suffer and get ignored. I know it sounds really picky, but it's true, and I don't think I'm the only one who noticed that. So yeah, sometimes you recognize when it's time to move on.

But, besides that though, I'm looking forward to a great Spring and Summer. Take care and I'll be back! :D
