:thumb701648912: in the restricted section.Midnight is the quiet hour, the witching hour,
the hour of sweet dreams and wretched nightmares—
it brings forth the dance we simply cannot get rid of,
our steps echoing in the caverns of the hallows of the
Library, and together we let our feet guide us from
section to section.
Mystery was one we danced in most often, its masked
murderers and thrill seekers a complement to
your secrets and my hidden rooms—we pretended to not
see the clues left for the other to find, to not see
the numbers that glowed from the open pages of left
behind physics books.
We never did make it to the Romance section and
I always wondered what dance we would have had there -
if we would waltz through the European history books,
tango down the South American literature, foxtrot to the tune
of the early 1900's in the sparse music section; and while
you strayed to the rigidity of Non-Fiction, I let myself 
wander past Fantasy and into Mythology.
I was always drowning when I ventured too far in,

Poetry

:thumb698459209: Stuck conflictions I’m stuck.
I don’t know what to do.
I don’t know where to go.
                    But I want it.
I don’t want things to change.
I think I’m happy.
But it’s complicated.
                    But I want to run away.
I’m stuck.
Shaded BeautyLife is quite hard, and has taken its toll.
I cover the marks, and let no one know.
Broken and scarred, both my body and soul.
Make-up goes far, but it’s only for show.
Look like a star, or at least meet the goal,
and shade the dark, fading beauty below.
Skin and PlasticThe ocean salt-licked calluses from my feet,
sand clawed into my knee and
the waves
swallowed my sunglasses (I paid
for all the times I wrote about it as though I’d been there
with skin and plastic).
It was easy letting it throw me, I already know
how to go limp, how to
accept the battering, how to
float to the top playing dead (It shook me
like a snow globe and for a moment under the night sky
things were real again).
I first saw the Atlantic
under the cover of night, and last saw it
running and stumbling towards it,
fists and teeth and all my bruises bared and gleaming
under the pinhole stars (once it was as dark on land as it is
across the water).
Someone thrust a jacket into my hands
for modesty
and I laughed.
On the drive home I pressed my ear to the window.
(I expected to leave the ocean,
I didn’t know I would have to leave the sky).

Pulling Weeds“Good morning, Brother Chris. Your tomatoes are spectacular.”
“Praise be to God.”
“Would you like some help weeding?”
“Thank you, Brother Jacob, I would love some. My knees are killing me.”
“Are they? You always look so content here, working in your garden.”
“I am, in mind and spirit, but the body does have a tendency to complain.”
“The soil is moist with yesterday’s rain. What a pleasure to dig in! Why, look at this worm, as fat as my finger.”
“Let me see. Oh, yes, I call him Percy, one of my favorite little workers.”
“Don’t tell me you’ve named the earthworms!”
“One must occupy one’s mind, Brother Jacob! Though I tend to call most of them Percy, for some reason.”
“Ha ha!”

cannot stick to them, and I'm still not
too sure how to walk without my shoulders
pulled back, my stride filled with the harsh
taps of my heels, my eyes daring men to come
and test a hand, a turn, a try at me and see
if they can return with no limp or bruise.
(The days roll past with no markings in its

to feel, a morning and an afternoon, a dawn and

today a different today; which many yesterdays
is speaking; how is tomorrow a tomorrow
when nothing changes?)
Memories tell me of what has been and, perhaps,
what can be, which is why faces flash by
the random men with their loud voices and
louder egos, baiting me with street corners and

the prey, but they only see predator here, my body
just another rolling day, and their taunts grate upon

Poetry

Understanding HeartbreakDear heart, I beseech thee
to relinquish thy hold.
Thy lady hath left me,
and my torment is cold.
I tried to drink the tears,
shed for her vagrant heart,
but drowned in my own fears:
Did my soul, then depart?
Should they dig up the dirt,
and throw me in the ground?
Would I still feel the hurt,
with no one else around?
To answer my despair
with death, would be perverse.
To have no one else there
may still, hurt so much worse.
Heart broken, soul attached.

Tears rolled over a smile.
My sadness not dispatched,
but covered for a while.
Sadness dealt with later.
Now I’ll relish in my past.
I thought pain was greater,
than the love we amassed.
The love I knew was true,
so perhaps I was wrong.
I’m glad to have loved you.
From us came a pure song.
What’s better than to know,
someone worth singing for?
When may such harsh of blow
once again scar my core?
To be loved is better,
and the song is sweeter.
Be giver and getter,
and avoid the fleeter.
Purer songs, lesser pai
One Small SparkWhen you start off small
One try is better than none
The idea can grow
With patience and persistence
A difference can be made

You're ok
NO.
Someone's there.
Not anymore. 
Someone's missing.
For just a long time.
People to protect you. 
People to go to. 
There used to be just one.
Wasn't that ok?
Someone you could go to,
Someone you could trust with anything.
Someone you could call when the attacks were too much.
The voice of someone who cared,
Was just enough to calm you enough,
To be in control.
But now?
There is no one I can trust.
I am alone.
The only thing worse than having one,
Is having none.

New Entry to Old Prompt

animal teethi. I found her in the hyper-real
pop art dream, scooping my heart
from the reeds, ditch weeds, she held it
in her hands to dine upon;
she was an animal.
I stopped her.
That heart is poisoned by cyanide
and all the horrible things that passed between
the beast’s teeth. The first thing she learned from me
is that the heart holds
terrible things the same way she held
the muscle
between her fingers.
ii. The barn was painfully red, set back
beneath the painter’s streaks of sunset
on rolling beds of tall grass and wild flowers
and it was beautiful and mine but
she could not stay there.
I promised to take her home.
Every grain of dirt and broken stone
on the earthen road was acute, individual, but they blended
together
the closer we got to her woods
and by the time that turned jungle
I could barely tell trees apart
let alone tease the water
from the mud.

and we spent the days collecting sweet greens,

Monteria: Chapter: ImyrveWords were spoken and fire appeared at the tip of a girl's finger. A candle was lit. Its flame flickered rapidly making the shadows inside the room dance in successive wavy movements. Imyrve bore it carefully. Setting fire to a torch nailed to the wall, she felt a gentle rush of warmth wreathing on the skin of her face.Outside an owl hooted. Its voice echoed repeating itself as it sped traveling towards distant places. It was still night out there. Imyrve wanted to have a look at the bird. From the window, she could see but a pitch black world.Out of a leather bag set on the bed she drew multiple items. She upturned a small phial on her pinky. With the sweet smelling substance which was in it, she made half circles behind her ears, tipped under her arms, then traced a line on her belly. On her right hand she put a silver bracelet inlaid with cream colored stones. She let fall a pale priestess's robe on her body. She donned her boots and slid a dagger inside the left one.At daybreak Imyrve left her chamber. As she was going down, a faint light coming from the hall slightly enlightened the stares. The others are awake. She thought.The door from which she entered was at the end of the long room. Beside it, a young fire was cracking in the fireplace. At the other end, was the gate that led outside. On the right, there was a lengthy brick counter. An open view on the kitchen was behind it. The rest of the space was filled with chairs and tables.Her former master Gard was sitting on a bench. His neck turner and his eyes staring vaguely out of the window. He was clutching a cup of mulled wine. Dolly, the young fellow with the soul trapped inside a horse's body was drinking water from a bucket on the floor. He raised his head and looked in Imyrve's eyes to welcome her. She stroked the hair on his back and went to sit with Gard.Seeing that the innkeeper's wife was also present there, she called,"milk and bread and butter, please".Smiling friendly , Gard said,"Good. Eat well. A long day awaits us"."Do not worry Gargar. My appetite is unquenchable even in death".The man in front of her was twenty nine years of age, yet this unending journey made him look well aged. He had dark circles under his eyes and dry cracked lips. His back was now hunched more than ever. All his features showed signs of weariness. Imyrve sensed that now that they were at the last stage of their quest, his anxiety and tension increased further. She was surely afraid of what was waiting them at the end of the road. Be that as it may she was eager and energetic. Her mind was still well balanced.If her judgment was correct Dolly seemed alright. He eats and drinks normally. Even so, she could not always comprehend him. At times he becomes cheery, jumps and runs in every direction and fills the world with his loud neighs. In other days he hardly nods when spoken to, she can not tell if there was a living human soul in that horse.Their journey began when they left the harbor called Boats-Feast in the south western shores of eldariand. Arriving to the east of Marcolon, they crossed the country for it was safer to travel that way, but slower withal. The people that sent them on the quest knew the risks of a voyage by sea. Taking a boat from the Black-Rock, they landed in a small town called the Borders. Now they were in the king's grave inn and soon will be leaving for the Bright Mountains.Imyrve guessed that after nearly a year of travel, it was not unusual that her mates were at a bad state. She felt sorry for Gard though. When she was eight years of age he took her as his first apprentice. At that same time he was as old as she was now. For ten years he had been her master, the only fatherly figure she ever known. She had the sense of being protected and safe around him more than when she had been living with her mother as a child. He was kindly and caring towards her, yet she was not fond of the way he treated people, his gloomy side. He frequently showed aggressivity and mistrust when dealing with other mages and common folk."Another sleepless night ?". Asked Imyrve."I got few hours before my mind was awake again." Gard miserably spoke. "fright and doubt won't leave me be.""You worry too much." She took his hand in hers."our plans were made by the high Masters. Hardly will something go wrong."He ended the talk with a squeeze of her fingers and a gentle,"yes". He drew his hand.It was still dark when they set out. The fresh breeze of the morning made Gard shiver. The sky was purple, sprinkled with blurry pale golden stars. Far in front of them, Imyrve beheld green coated hills and valleys. The road twisted and warped following the reliefs of the highlands. Farther, all sight is blocked by the wall of the Bright Mountains. The so called fiery peaks were grey now. The sun will soon be up and it will become hard to stare long at the summit. She thought.She turned her head to have the last look at the inn. She grew fond of the place in three days only. It was small, clean, and not quite frequented, unlike the crowded filthy places they stayed in during their travel across Marcolon. There was a door in its hall that led to a garden. A great lord's grave was built in the middle. Imyrve savoured all the hours she spent there, listening to the stories of jenny, the innkeeper's wife. Apparently some old king died and was buried in that same spot. The wife told her that the grand sire of her husband's grand sire put up the inn and the garden as a memorial for the lost man.In Monteria, graves were called round beds. This king's bed was grey stone and of circular shape. It was surrounded by a ring of water, all covered with rose petals. There was a miniature statue of a crowned man slaying a bear on it.Even though she already read all about the land when preparing for the trip, Imyrve was well amused by Jenny's tales. The old woman recounted the history of her region in a folkish enjoyable way, mixing the names of this lord and that king, adding made up events here and there.Desiring to know what the Montarian folktales tell about the bright mountains, Imyrve had asked her to give her some accounts on the past of the heights which this country was most known for."Ages ago, the earliest men set out to roam and populate the lands. They found the mountains, a colossal chain of boulders, cliffs and turf. Many massive bright fire stones that held the sun's radiance were scattered on top. The view frightened them. They felt so little before something so big, and the wisest and oldest saw the presence of the gods in these peaks which seemed ablaze from afar. And so Monteria they called the realm they set up later. Mountains of flames in the common speech".Jenny had said.Imyrve knew of course that there was no earliest men. In fact, the same people who traveled from Eldariand to Marcolon around five thousand years ago, came to populate Monteria after. Before that the continent waw overrun with white lions."Through the centuries, few unique people had learnt to master these fire gems to do exceptional things, to produce light and heat, to make hamers shatter the hardest rocks, and all kinds of spells.""Then came kolven the second or Boloven was it, I will ask my husband which was it later. Well, a sage king that gave his court the bidding of making mines under the mountains to extract the material. One of his descendants, maybe this one was Boloven, assembled the finest of these spell makers. That is how the notorious enchanters guild was born. The fiery halls were built and the enchanters thrived on making arms for the royal soldiers. The realm grew in power during that time. And until this day folk say that that line of kings was the greatest dynasty Monteria has seen since the dawn of time.""It was a dreadful night, when the white lions stormed the Mountains to take back what was theirs. Not a mere pack but thousands of them. It was said that their leader was capable of turning into a man. All the guild's heritage of knowledge and artefacts was lost, trapped for hundreds of years inside what has become lion territory."Imyrve had thought that for a common innkeeper's wife living far away from the city, Jenny knew a lot about the history of the land. She also wondered if all the montarians were as same as the old woman.It was nearly noon when their path began to slightly slant upwards. The hill that they were ascending was mantled by a vast field of blood red lavender. Perfectly lined rows of scarlet buchs surrounded them. There was fences separating the road and the plantation. Vertical wooden swords held together by two horizontal poles. Every six feet or so, stood spruce carved ferrets carrying the highest pole in their mouths. Climbing vines with a sharp biting smell accompanied with notes of sweetness, was coiled around the sculpted wood. A buzzing sound filled the landscape. "The kingdom of bees", whispered Gard.A short while after, they reached the top of the hill. Imyrve swept her eyes about the area. Spotting a crouched peasant within the field, she said , "let me do the talking.""Won't utter a word." Answered Gard.Before long they heard, "oi you! This is me lord Dardwick's property and you would better get ...", then he paused taking a long look at them,"oh, me apologies priests, me withered eyes did not recognize the robes.""No harm is done, sir." She reassured."I am no sir," he chuckled, "only a servant""Are we not all servants?" She replied wisely, just as what a real priestess would do. "What is your name, blessed man?""Anvelbe, me lady.""I'm no lady either, Anvelbe.""What is yours then.""Ive.""Might i ask about you business in these lonely parts.""We make godly work, restoring wise circles all around Aysgrath." She said.Getting down from her horse and stepping towards him, she examined him closely. The man seemed old and bended. He stood leaning a spade. His hair was white. The tunic and trousers he wore, were extremely worn. His boots were in a better shape."We were told about one. Set beyond this hill.""All this land is called the kingdom of bees. Past this field you will find a yeffer forest. This same path will lead you inside it. A tower stands amid the trees. The circle is found beside it.""Thank you Anvelbe. We will pray on your health.""Farewell."Ahead of the hill, stretched a grassy valley. At its farthest parts sprawled the golden forest they were heading to.They made it to the edge of the woods after an hour of march. The road split into a two tined fork. One path went on forward in the direction of the mountains. The other ran its course through the forest.Imyrve felt grateful that the old man did not address Gard. Even at his age, her former master had not learned how to properly communicate with others. His life has not been quite an easy one. He had told her all about it. His father had been a powerful and proud merchant. He had been the main trader that Eseryl the third and his court had dealt with. For nearly eleven years he had supplied all the king's feasts with the most expensive wines and meats. Eseryl's wife and her friends had dressed in his fine silks and jewelry. His mother had been popular and well acclaimed and a very close companion to the queen and her daughters. Her advice and views had been greatly praised.Despite the fact that they had been low born and without being members of the king's council, Gard's parents had had control and power over it. When he had been born the midwife deemed him as frail and week, and had said that he would not survive for long. To her eyes, he had seemed too tiny to be a healthy ordinary child. Yet he lived.As a young boy Gard had been sickly and often had needed the presence of a healer at their household. Some years after, it had appeared that the boy had had no interest in kids' games and no skill at sword play or riding. Yet he showed a pronounced eagerness for books and history. And so his mother made sure he got the finest teaching there was“All of that ended once Cerel, Eseryl’s brother, took the crown. Folk had named him the pleasant king for all the wickedness he had done. My parents, especially my mother and her companions at court had shown their disagreement with the way he Cerel ruled”.Gard had told Imyrve.”“A word from his grace and all his opposers were slaughtered, their homes burned and their children enslaved…”Yeffer grew neither in Eldariand nor in Marcolon. Its colors had amazed Imyrve when she had first landed on this country. The bark on its trunk was made of long roughly cracked patches of dirty dark brown. The crown of the tree was thick with golden liefs that made it glow radiantly under the rays of the sun. In summer, elongated fruits with an inky black color sprouted from its branches.The area about them swarmed with yeffer and was flecked here and there with dark spruce. The dirt lane they were following was overrun with thick grass. Bees were whizzing around the flowering trees in masses. The forest floor was carpeted with green short swards. Shaded flowers and fat bogging mushrooms thrived under the shadows of the trunks.They were not very far incide the woods when they heard the burble of a flowing stream. It was as clear as glass and no more than five feet of width. The rill went through the road and made a deep round pool where it crossed it. Its bed was paved with many sized smooth rocks. They traversed it, refilled their water skins, watered the horses, then went on.At dusk they arrived at their destination. The absence of trees made a large square of free space. In the middle stood a great ring-shaped tall tour. Three feet of green bush walls was about it. The top of the building was garlanded with an immense number of mud nests. Grey winged birds with white bellies flitted in and out of their homes.They left the river well behind, yet from inside the walls came a sound of water-rushes. The way which led within was barred by a tall gate of faded silver color. It was made of many swerving metal tongues in the likeness of vines. Its locked latch was located on its inner side, even so it could be reached from the outside. There was a wooden sign on top. These words were inscribed on it, 'Holy garden, The kingdom of bees, 943 AAOSM". (After the appearance of the second moon).Gard passed his hands between the bars and with much effort lifted the latch for it was rustes and has not been moved for quite a time. He pushed the gate with the last drop of power that was left in him then sat exhaustingly where the gate once stood shut. He appeared worn out and pale faced. He breathed heavily."I am going to have a look around the walls." Imyrve said with a high voice as if speaking with an old person."We will have dinner and rest after. Just be stronger for a bit more."The sky was growing dim and the sun was shying away behind the mountains. Murky shadows spread under the trees. For a short while Imyrve stood with closed eyes, listening to the music of the woods; the gentle cries of birds, the sound of the dancing grass, the murmur of the slithering air on tree leaves and far away trunks moaned in a crackling resonance.what an enchanting place!. Though she did not consider herself as a great traveler nor did she journeyed that much, she supposed that Monteria was the most beautiful land on Arath.Since she have been here, she came to agree with the words of the well revered eldariandi poet Doris broken-wing. A crippled boy who grew up to roam all the known lands and seas and to write many widespread common songs. Only few lines of his portrayal of this continent could she recall:Her wild heart which was already aflame,All men desperately longed to tame,Her beauty put all the other ladies to shame,Monteria was the precious maiden's name.The history of the realm this country had once been was packed with struggles and battles, yet its landscape seemed untouched by man's hands, untainted with his befouled work of war. The local architecture gave Imyrve an impression that the buildings blended so well with the wildlife. Everything that commons constructed looked as if it has been part of the scenery since the beginning.She drew a dagger from her boots, pivoted it in her hand so that the blade was hidden behind her arm. She went to do her inspection.Upon her return to the gate, Dolly was uneasily nuzzling the face of a collapsed Gard. She ran toward them. Her companion waw breathing heavily and shivering with fever. She put his arm around her neck and pulled him up trying to drag his body into the tower. She was surprised when she found herself an hour later succeedingly making him a bed and lowering his heat.Outside she found a pale of damp mouldy firewood. There was a good amount. She doubted that the logs were in a great state to produce rich flames, yet the wood burned fine as she kindled it in the fireplace. She put water in a kettle and brought it to boil, then tossed some potatoes and carrots that she got from Jenny for a coppery rofin.(A golden coin is called bin, silver coins are called dins. The copper one is a rofin.)When the soupe was nearly ready, she put few herbs that she picked on the river side earlier that day. Waking Gard, she gave him a warm bowl. "Eat slowly, there is yellow-feire and wolf-tongue in it (Herbs), it will help to ease the weariness". He thanked her. She ate hastily, then went out to take care of the horses.Dolly was chomping leaves from a shrub near the door of the tower. The other mounts were some feet away from him. She took them by their leads and moved to close the outer gate. Then it occurred to Imyrve that she has not yet explored the inside of the walls. There was a stone paved track which led from the entrance to the tower. At either side, thorn flowers spread viciously, entangled and arose high. She walked past the tower, to the rear side of the garden. There, in the midst of the bushes was a pot shaped fountain dubbed with foamy algae. Some feet to the left, a well was dug and built. It was covered by a round trapdoor-like assembled wood planks. Finding a source of water cheered her up. She unloaded and released the animals to water them selfs.Beyond the fountain, a wise circle was laid. Constructed of grey marble. An empty pool was in its centre. This is a modest one. Usually the widows yards had all sort of paintings, carvings and sculptures on them. The folk in Monteria were boastfully proud about their religion. Imyrve realised that once she perceived the costly expenses that were spent on the circles.The skies were almost entirely dark as she entered the tower again. The building was quite spacious. A stair swiveled upwards around a pillar which stood in the middle of the base. Gard, not shivering anymore, was seated near the fire with his back to the wall. She moved past him and climbed the stairs.The second floor was all empty but for a desk. Its top was covered by a mass of letters. Imyrve found a book buried among the papers. The songs of the gods.A drawing of the widow was on the cover. The illustration was framed by an egg-shaped silver chain. The goddess was bathing in the shafts of the sunlight. Her hair fell on her back and shoulders in curtains of dense white silk. Although her face was peaceful and serene, her jaws were tense and tightened. On her lap sat two twin infants.Veya and Vadey, the mother and father of all men. One of her elder children was holding a golden crown over her head. Behind the figures, the world unfolded with all its stars and colors. Imyrve discerned the moons, tiny as pearls, set on the widow's rings. She opened the book on the fourth page.The second song, were the words written at the top of the sheet. She read the verses that were in front of her:Through the wide dark world they flew, Fashioning the expanse as they wish,Yet in the heart of the lady sadness grew,For she could never feel no joy or bliss,And only her mate knew what to do,This curse of futility i can vanquish,To her he vowed,Vowed that her desires will come true,Their gloom and despair he would banish,So many a thing all together he brew,Still what came out could not be but devilish,To end it, all his vigour and power on it he threw,Her wishes, the lady was now compelled to relinquish.The lord brawled with all his might,The strength of darkness was too great,Its strikes shone awfully bright,On the lord it put an extensive weight.His determination for triumph was tested,Chaotic was the music their clash emitted,Space and time were briskly shattered,His doomed destiny the lord accepted.Dominion and control he had no more,The pressure of the blows shook his core,At the devil's soul in despair he tore,Thus their vital parts they could not restore.Light and warmth swarmed the emptiness,Suddenly, a cry of hope echoed widely,The shake its Weight set on the world was endless,The grace of the newborn sun was holy, Rock and water danced in a grand mess,From it, green things sprouted rapidly,Air was made of scents and dampness,Up above, the golden stars burned hotly,Mountains arose to a great highness,Life was shaped into beings slowly,Yet the fading of her mate the lady had to witness,She felt the future in her belly lastly. For a brief moment, Imyrve was filled with a great sense of hope. Then remembering how close to their destination they were, the feeling left her at once. She shut the manuscript and went down to make her bed.

The Courageous DragonMan #11,The Dark Tower - The Eudaimonia Empire, The ArcticWithin the miles of frozen water known as the Arctic, lies a city. Unlike any other city, this one is beyond the scope of human vision. The city itself is completely sealed and cloaked from the outside world. Impossible to view unless it's allowed.Under the cloaking and forcefield, the city is a futuristic and alien-like city. Thousands of years more advanced then any city found on Earth, while amazing, they still had a malevolent aura about it with neon red and purple lights emitting from every corner of the city. Along with drones and armored soldiers patrolling every building and corner.But in the heart of the hidden city, a colossal black tower standing 2,000 feet tall and looms over the city like a dark giant. The capital building of the city and appropriately named the Dark Tower.Within the top level of the Dark Tower and the throne room of the ruler, stands a man as he stares out the window, with several guards scattered all around the room. But unlike any other man, he was mechanical. Or at least, part mechanical. From head to toe he was made out of a typical gray metal yet still heavily resembled a human, standing at 5'11 tall. He had yellow glowing marks wrapped around his shoulders, abdomen, and upper hips. Despite being mechanical, he still has combed metallic hair with a crimson streak running down the middle.His eyes were pupilless and glowed yellow, he had spike guards on his shoulders, and had long razor sharp blades protruding from his elbows and knees. And last but not least, he had long razor sharp claws at the end of each finger. Each one easily could've been mistaken for a dagger.,But as the man continued to stare out the window, he started quietly mumbling to himself."Pff... Errands, as if I'm some whipping boy for HIM to push around. I am the second-in-command and I get put on errand duties like some common goon... Hmph... Oh, well, this is only yet another minor obstacle to deal with. I must be patient, and I will achieve my goal... They will know the name; Spite." Stated Spite as he held his left hand up and rubbed his blade-like claws together.Vroosh!But Spite's thoughts were interrupted as he heard the sound of the metal door automatically opening up behind him and a series of footsteps walking in.Spite turned around to see two Eudaimonian Troops completely covered in advanced black, red, and purple armor holding laser rifles and an older man in his later years wearing a suit and tie. Spite smiled as he slowly walked up to the older gentleman."Greetings, Mr. Golubev. What a pleasure it is to see you again. Have you provided access to the Troops like I asked?" Asked Spite with a malevolent smirk."Of course, just as promised I provided your men with the access they needed in order to proceed forward and plant the bombs in Red Square. Being a high ranking Russian government agent like myself, allows me complete access to some of the most secure places in the country." Replied Mr. Golubev in a Russian accent with an equally smiley smirk."You and those like you have done great honor for the Eudaimonia Empire." Stated Spite as Mr. Golubev nodded his head in response."Of course, now if you don't mind I'll just take my payment and conclude our business." Stated Mr. Golubev as Spite raised an eyebrow at him."Payment? Oh, you mean your reward. Of course... Kneel." Said Spite with a smile as the man's smile turned into a look of confusion as a moment of silence passed between the two."... What?" Asked Mr. Golubev, being completely baffled by Spite's reply."I said kneel.""What are you talking about? Where's my money?" Asked Mr. Golubev as his fear, confusion, and frustration started to rise."Money? What made you think you were going to receive money?" Asked Spite."We had a deal! You said I would be receiving a handsome payment for my work!" Yelled Mr. Golubev."No, I said you would receive a handsome REWARD for your assistance. And that reward is to serve the Overlord and the Eudaimonia Empire. To become our little mole in the Russian government and feed us any information we ask of you. It is a great honor to serve the new future master of the world... And since you are now a member of the Eudaimonia Empire and I am the Second-In-Command... Kneel before your superior..." Stated Spite as he pointed his index claw to the floor before him."Are you insane?! This wasn't part of the deal!" Yelled Mr. Golubev in anger."I said... KNEEL..." Growled Spite in an even deadlier tone then before."No! This was not a part of the- UGH!"Ching!But Mr. Golubev wasn't able to finish his sentence before Spite lunged forward and stuck his claws through the man's abdomen and out his back. Spite then slowly lifted Mr. Golubev off the ground as his blood started to drip on the floor."When your commanding officer tells you to kneel... YOU OBEY HIM..." Growled Spite before pulling his blood soaked claws out of the man's gut and dropping him to the floor. The man immediately fell on his face as a small puddle of blood started to pool from under the man."Not exactly what I call KNEELING... But it's good enough." Said Spite in satisfaction, before looking back up at the Troops standing there."You two, clean this trash up!" Ordered Spite as the Troopers nodded."Yes, Commander Spite." Replied one of the Troops as both picked up the mans body and started to haul it off.Spite turned back around as he walked over to one of the holographic computers at the end of the room as he started to type away on it."Hmm... Looks like everything is going according to plan. All I have to do now is wait for Blackout to-"Vroosh!"Well, speak of the devil." Uttered Spite as he turned around to see a dark lanky figure walk through the open doorway and walk up to him.As the figure got closer and stepped into the light, his appearance was far more detailed. The man barely looked human at all, Blackout wore a thin black suit with several pieces of metal plating scattered all over his body.,Blackout was so thin to the point where it looked like he didn't posses any fat or muscle and had several wires attached to his back, head, and neck along with a metallic spine and bone-like metallic plating on his hands. But the most bone-chilling detail of his appearance was the windows on his suit that showed what he really looked like, the clear dome surrounding his entire face was nothing but a skull with a strange black mist surrounding it along with a window on his chest that revealed his ribcage with the same black mist around it. "Blackout, punctual as always. What's the progress with the other nations, are they ready?" Asked Spite as Blackout stared at him with black eyeless sockets before slowly nodding his head."Excellent, everything is finally ready for my- Uh, I mean our MASTERS plan to proceed as scheduled." Stated Spite as the metal door opened up once more to reveal another tall dark figure.Vroosh!"Indeed..." Spoke the gruff voice from behind Blackout and Spite as they both turned around and straightened up immediately into proper stances as their lord walked into the throne room."And what of the news of the bombs?" Asked the tall dark man as he walked over to his throne where he then sat down."Everything is in place, Overlord. Standing by for your orders as we speak." Stated Spite as he bowed his head in respect."Good. Show me." Replied Overlord as Spite turned around and pointed at one of the guards."You there! Bring up the live footage of-" But Spite was interrupted by the booming voice of the Overlord, which stopped him in his tracks."Spite... What do you think your doing?" Asked the Overlord with a deadly tone in his voice as Spite turned around with a nervous smile."I'm just trying to get the live footage of the-""NO. Your not. Your assuming command that you DO NOT posses. Whenever I might be absent, you have whatever full range of command you need to finish your task. But when I am present, I am the only one who gives orders and commands. Understand, Spite?" Asked Overlord as Spite looked back with a frightened smile and nodded."Uh... I understand, Master. I'll just get that myself..." Said Spite as he walked over to one of the computers as the end of the throne room and started typing on it, until several holographic screens of Moscow, Bagdad, Washington D.C., and London popped up before them."And now, we can just sit back and watch the fireworks." Said Spite with a sinister chuckle as he walked back over to the Overlords throne and stood by it along with Blackout.Overlord simply remained silent as he smiled and pressed a button on his throne.BOOM! KABOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! KABOOM!"This is CNN with BREAKING NEWS! There has been a coordinated attack within the major capital cities of the U.S., Russia, the U.K., China, and Iraq. Thousands are excepted to be dead and thousands more are severely injured, possibly many more. We are still unsure of the exact scope of damage or who or what is responsible for this disaster. But what is known is that at precisely 3:30 PM the capital buildings and buildings of importance of each city including the White House, Red Square, The Tower of London, the Great Hall of the People, and the Khulafa Mosque." Stated the news announcer as video of the partially destroyed and burning buildings of the different nations capital and historical structures burning."Nations around the world are already doing everything in their power to help out in the aftermath of the attacks, and doing everything in their power to track down the terrorists responsible for these attacks." The news announcer returned on screen as he attempted to stay organized while reading new news on the teleprompter."As of now we will stay on the news story and keep you informed as long as it- Kzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!- Wait... What? Something is interrupting our broadca- KZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! KZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! KZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!" Out of nowhere, the transmission for CNN news, along with all other TV stations around the world have been hijacked by an unknown party as static and a strange series of unknown letters flashed across the screen.Another second passed until it finally ended. The transmission switched to showing a dark man covered in shadows sitting on a massive throne with a single light shining down on him. Despite the light, the only other objects giving off light in throne room was a pair of malevolent purple eyes."Greetings, people of Earth... My name is the Overlord, and I am responsible for the "Attacks" on your nations capitals. I rule over a nation most have never heard of, I rule over the Eudaimonia Empire. I already know by now that the governments of the world are already trying to track down this signal, but it is fruitless. The signal is scrambled beyond tracking, besides the Empire is hidden away with the most advanced technology this world has ever seen. My Empire is covered by an impenetrable forcefield and invisibility field. Besides, the weapons at my arsenal is beyond anything the human race has come up with. If I feel like my nation is under any kind of threat, then I have no choice but to use my advanced weapons. Weapons that make your precious little nukes seem like firecrackers. I already know many of you already see me as some power-hungry despot who's only desire is to obtain more power... Quite the contrary as a matter of fact. My purpose is to help the world, help humanity. Not only do I possess incredibly powerful weapons, but also technology of such a high caliber that I can provide food, shelter, water, education, and medicine beyond the capabilities of any nation in the world. I also have a plan to revolutionize the world as we know it, and guide it into a new golden age. I understand many of you still see me as a monster, yet the Eudaimonia Empire only did it as a way to gain your attention and snap you out of your delusions. If I were to list the number of atrocities America, the U.K., Russia, China, and Iraq have committed, I would be here all day. But you are still loyal to them. I see how corrupt and childish humanity truly is, and how you need a guide to help you through the darkness and into the light...""That is why, I am giving a chance for the governments of the world to surrender their power to me and the Eudaimonia Empire. See this as less of a conquest, and more like enlightenment. Don't mistake me for the kind gentle hand of a Shepard, I will be the firm hand of a strict taskmaster who will expect total obedience among his students. If your governments don't surrender within the next 24 hours, I will have to punish you. If you desire peace and order, then submit yourselves to the Eudaimonia Empire and no harm will comith. Resist, and you will know the true meaning of fear and chaos... This is your ONLY warning..." Overlord finished chillingly as the camera cut away from him and returned to static"Kzzzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Kzzzzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzzzzzzzz!-" The static cut as the hijack finally ended and returned to it's normal scheduled broadcasting. The screen cut back to CNN where the announcer sat there with a confused look before looking off stage for a moment."Hey... Are we back on? We're on?""Yeah, we're on." Replied a voice from off stage as the news announcer turned back to the camera."Sorry about that everyone. As you saw, we were currently dealing with several... 'Technical Difficulties'... As you saw, the leader of the Eudaimonia Empire claimed responsibility for the attacks on the nations capitals. We are still unsure if him and the 'Eudaimonia Empire' were responsible for these attacks. Little is currently known about the Eudaimonia Empire but from the little information there is available about it, it is believed that it is a terrorist group that is attempting to build their own nation. Despite these horrific attacks, the only other time the group was active was five years ago on April 6th. The day where all over the world there were sightings of strange ships and objects flying through the air. Most audio and video evidence of this event posted on the internet was mysteriously erased with eye witness testimonies claiming that the flying object were 'ships' sent by the Eudaimonia Empire to... 'recruit new citizens'. Many were reported missing that day and are suspected to be around six million people. It is still unclear if that was even truly the work of the 'Eudaimonia Empire'. But what is certain is that the government in the world are currently doing everything in their power to track the terrorist group down and stop them before they can cause any more arm. Stay with us, we will be covering this story all night..."Construction Sight - São Paulo, BrazilIt was nighttime in the city of São Paulo, Brazil as within one of the dark construction sights stood a large group of men with vans and trucks and another smaller group of men with an advanced aircraft behind them.Most of the men from the larger group were either in body armor and carried rifles or wore suits and glasses, as in the smaller group all of the men wore standard Eudaimonia armor and rifles.That's when a man wearing a normal business suit walked up to the smaller group with two armored guards by his sides."Are you ready to perform business, meus amigos?" Asked the business man as a larger man emerged from the smaller group. Although he didn't wear Eudaimonia Troop armor like the other men in the smaller group, he wore a black, purple, and yellow suit with several plates of armor scattered all around. He stood around 6'4 tall, had brown short hair, and had scars riddling his face."As ready as ever, Mister Alvarez. But first, we want to see the merchandise, or no trade." Growled the man in a gravelly voice as Mister Alvarez nodded."Of course, Mister..." Alvarez trailed off as the man spoke."Psycho Wolf." Replied Psycho Wolf as Alvarez looked at him with a confused look, before shrugging his shoulders."Uhh... Okay then, 'Psycho Wolf'. We have the piece of hardware you asked for." Said Alvarez as he turned back to one of the parked trucks to see the back opening up and a man operating a forklift to roll up the truck's ramp and pick up the piece of hardware. The forklift backed up and turned around to show the piece of hardware as it rolled forward and stopped.Psycho Wolf and Alvarez glanced over at the piece of equipment as a Eudaimonian Trooper walked over to the hardware and analyzed it, before turning back to the two men."Everything checks out, sir." Stated the Trooper."Then what are you waiting for?! Load it up onto the craft! Last thing we want to do is disappoint our lord!" Growled Psycho Wolf as the Troopers went to work on loading the piece of hardware on the aircraft."Woah, woah, woah there, amigo... I'm happy that your happy with the product, but... Where's my pay?" Asked Alvarez as Psycho Wolf rolled his eyes in annoyance."*Sigh* FINE..." Psycho Wolf turned around and snapped his fingers at the remaining Troopers who weren't helping taking the large piece of hardware in the ship.Only a second later, several Troopers walked over to Psycho Wolf and Mister Alvarez carrying several large cases as they handed them over to Alvarez's men."Let me see them." Said Alvarez, beckoning one of the Troopers to give him a case. One of the Troopers handed him the case as Alvarez opened it up only to see an advanced rifle. Smiling, he pulled it out and held it in his hands."The Beam Rifle. A particle weapon that shoots focused blasts of particle energy. Blasts that are as precise as a scalpel, yet more devastating then a hellfire missile." Stated Psycho Wolf as Alvarez continued to happily admire the weapon in his hands."Bom Deus... I am going to make MILLIONS off of these..." Stated Alvarez as he continued to admire the weapon while his men continued to receive weapons from the Troopers.Meanwhile, several thousand feet away and in the sky a red dragon-shaped jet flew through the air as it flew over the city of São Paulo. In the cockpit of the plane sat DragonMan."Flying over São Paulo, Brazil. About to ambush a suspected arms dealing trade going on. Sources say it is with the alleged Eudaimonia Empire. Possibly capture one of them for interrogation about the attacks that occurred earlier today." Stated DragonMan as he held his finger down on one of the buttons above the cockpit, before pulling his hand away and pressing several more buttons."Expected airdrop in forty seconds." Stated DragonMan as he pressed several more buttons on his plane to get ready. Looking down at the screen in front of him, he got a inferred camera feed of the meeting place at the construction sight, seeing all the men surrounding the area and the vehicles.But as he looked on, he saw something move in the corner of the camera. He scanned the area only to see that nearly a hundred men were surrounding the area. More then likely the Brazilian Armed Forces and even UN soldiers, ready to perform an ambush of their own."No, their not supposed to be here!" Growled DragonMan as he started pressing more buttons around the cockpit due to this new change of plan.Back in the construction sight, Psycho Wolf's eyes widened as he looked over at the dark buildings and trees surrounding the area. Psycho Wolf sniffed the air as he realized what was going on."What is it-?" Alvarez wasn't able to finish as Psycho Wolf snatched the weapon out of Alvarez's hands and started firing at the darkness.Zap! Zap! Zap!"We're surrounded! Fire! Fire!" Roared Psycho Wolf as the soldiers and agents surrounding the area showed themselves as they started firing at both parties, as both parties started firing back.Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta!In the resulting fire fight, soldiers, agents, and Alvarez's men fell on all sides. The only ones left unharmed were the Eudaimonian Troopers who fired their laser rifles at the surrounding assailants with the bullets hitting the Troopers bouncing off of their advanced armor without even leaving a scratch.Psycho Wolf aimed his Beam Rifle at the surrounding assailants, knocking down each one as reinforcements showed up in the form of military armored vehicles and helicopters as they started firing heavy machine gun fire.Pow! Pew! Bang! Bang! Pow! Pew! Pew! Pow! Pew! Bang! Bang! Pow! Pew! Pew!"Hey! You need to get me out of here! I can't die here!" Yelled Alvarez as he tried to hide behind Psycho Wolf and avoid the gunfire.Psycho Wolf stopped for a second as he glanced down at the man with a dead annoyed look, before being fire upon by machine gun fire. Looking over he saw one of the choppers were firing on him."What are you doing!? Do something!" Yelled Alvarez as Psycho Wolf looked back at the corrupt business man."Fine, whatever you say." Said Psycho Wolf as he grabbed Alvarez by the collar and looked back over at the hovering helicopter."Wait! Wait! What the hell are you-!?" But Alvarez wasn't able to finish his sentence as Psycho Wolf turned around and threw the man into the attacking chopper."AAAAAAHHHHHHHH-!"Boom!Despite the Eudaimonian's superior technology, the surrounding force had superior numbers as they continued to fire on the Eudaimonia ship."This fire fight is starting to get too hot!" Roared Psycho Wolf as he picked up a large steel beam from nearby and tossed it into several armored vehicles.Crash!Psycho Wolf turned to his wrist device as he pressed several buttons, causing the Eudaimonia ship to open up several compartments where several humanoid grunt drones popped out of the ship. The drones activated their weapons as they started firing all different types of lasers and blasts of energy that easily decimated the surviving soldiers and armillary.Pew! Pew! Kapew! Boom! Pew! Bam! Bang! Bang! Pew! Bang! Kapew! Boom! Pew!"We need back up! We need as much backup as you can send! NOW!" Yelled the commanding officer of the Brazilian military into his radio as loudly as he could over the loud gunfire and explosions.The Eudaimonian Drones started to push back the assailants as the surviving choppers and soldiers started launching missiles at Psycho Wolf and the rest of the Eudaimonia.Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!But this time, as the fire and smoke cleared, Psycho Wolf and the rest of the Eudaimonian Troopers were seemingly finally hurt and stunned."That's enough! We need to get out of here and bring the piece of hardware to our lord in ONE PIECE!" Roared Psycho Wolf before turning to the choppers and armored vehicles and let out an incredibly powerful energized howl that carried a destructive force so powerful it blasted all the soldiers and vehicles back along with parts of the surrounded incomplete buildings."RRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHH!!"Crash! Smash! BOOM!Meanwhile miles overhead, the Dragon Jet soared over the battle."Dropping now!" Said DragonMan as he pulled his wings close to his back and crossed his arms over his chest before the cockpit opened up and launched DragonMan out. DragonMan was in free falling as he spread out his wings and started stabilizing himself as he fell straight to the ground. ,Back on the ground, the fire fight continued between the Eudaimonians and the military forces as several Eudaimonia Troopers attempted to carry the large piece of machinery into the ship.Psycho Wolf ran up to one of the parked vehicles with soldiers surrounding it shooting at him. Psycho Wolf showed absolutely no sign of pain as he picked up the armored vehicle and smashed several of the soldiers with it.Crash!One surviving soldier was knocked back and broke his leg. The soldier looked back up from his spot on the ground to see that Psycho Wolf hovered over him. With a smile, Psycho Wolf lifted his foot as he was preparing to squash the soldier's head. But before he could do so, something hit the ground in the middle of the fire fight and created a small crater in the ground.Crash!For a moment, everyone including the Eudaimonia robots stopped their firing and looked over at the crater, only for DragonMan to leap out of the crater and punch one of the Eudaimonia Troopers. Sending him flying through the air and through several stone objects.Pow! Crash! Krash!"No! No! No! No! No! NO! NO! NO! NO! NOOOOO!!!" Growled Psycho Wolf in fear and anger as DragonMan charged forward at the next Eudaimonian Trooper and punched him, sending him flying through another wall.Krash!"Stop him!" Yelled Psycho Wolf as the Eudaimonian Troopers and the grunt drones turned away from the attacking soldiers and focused fire on DragonMan.DragonMan started taking the men down one by one, clobbering them and tossing them aside like they were nothing.The assaulting forces stopped firing for a moment as they witnessed the battle going on in front of them."What are you doing? Fire!" Yelled a commanding officer over the radio to one of the Task Force Foundation officers."Sir, I don't think that DragonMan is a threa-""No! Fire now!" Yelled the superior as the Foundation officer hesitantly followed orders along with the other assaulting forces who started to fire on both DragonMan and the Eudaimonian Troopers.As DragonMan swung his tail and sent one of the Eudaimonian soldiers flying through the wall of a fifth story building, Psycho Wolf glanced at the large cylindrical piece of hardware and growled.Psycho Wolf fell forward on all fours as he started to transform. He started growing larger and developed more wolf-like features with sharp teeth, claws, grey hair, and glowing yellow eyes. But that's when he started to change even further as he sprouted two more sets of arms under his first set as his wolf-like face started to painfully split into three faces. Eventually looking like three vicious wolf faces all painfully merged into one like a Jaunus cat.,"RRAAAAAAAAAAA!" Roared Psycho Wolf in fury as he turned around and grabbed the piece of hardware. Strapping it to his back as he started to run off on all fours with it. "Surrender! You can't run! Your surrounded and you have no exits!" Yelled a voice from the chopper hovering above him as he charged straight at one of the nearby abandoned buildings."THEN I'LL MAKE ONE!"KRASH!Psycho Wolf charged straight through the building as the assault forces started for follow along.But as DragonMan stopped to look over at the escaping wolfman mutant, one of the grunt drones blasted DragonMan in the back with a powerful blast of energy that sent DragonMan forward and into a pile of concrete cylinders.Crash!The Eudaimonian Troopers and grunt drones started to move in and assault the spot where DragonMan was blasted into with more laser fire.Pew! Kapow! Zap! Pow! Pew! Kapow! Zap! Pow!But that's when a concrete cylinder came careening through the air and struck several of the Eudaimonian Troopers.Wooosh! Crash!As the several Troopers and grunt drones left turned back, they saw DragonMan run straight at them as he knocked several of them back with blasts of fire.Froosh! Froosh! Froosh!All that was left were the grunt drones. DragonMan charged into the first one and kicked it, sending it flying into a nearby bulldozer.Crash!One of the remaining drones extended a blade from one of it's arms as it charged at DragonMan and swung it's blade. DragonMan quickly turned around and dodged the blade before punching the robot with his left and right hook several times. Before grabbing the arm and tearing it off as he lifted it up into the air.The other drone readied it's rapid fire laser guns and started firing at DragonMan. DragonMan instantly spun around to face the drone and used the one he was already holding as a shield to block the incoming fire. In turn, tearing apart the drone he was using as a shield as he ran closer.Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew!Only a small chunk of the robot remained in DragonMan's hand as he bashed the other robot across the face with it and tossed it aside. Before shlashing the robot to bits with his razor sharp claws, and kicking it away.The drone that was tossed into the bulldozer stood back up and aimed it's weapons at DragonMan. DragonMan saw this and within a split second, picked up the severed arm of the robot he used as a shield and tossed it into the head of the drone by the bulldozer.The robot sputtered and shook before falling over motionless.DragonMan didn't waste any time as he started flying high into the air.Meanwhile, military vehicles and helicopters continued to closely follow Psycho Wolf. Psycho Wolf jumped from the rooftops of skyscraper to skyscraper, before leaping off one and landing on a smaller building and running to another one. All the while the piece of hardware was attached to his back.The helicopters followed along as they kept their spotlights on the fleeing criminal. Psycho Wolf leaped from the top of one skyscraper to another, before leaping off of that one and heading directly down. Stabbing his claws into the building he was trailing down to stop his momentum, and allow him to leap at another nearby smaller building.But as he started running across it on all eight of his limbs, DragonMan careened straight into Psycho Wolf out of the sky and sent the two crashing through the roof of the building and landed in an apartment.Crash!Psycho Wolf pushed off the stone and steel rubble burying him and looked up to see DragonMan walking towards him. Psycho Wolf let out a vicious roar before lunging forward and swung his large dagger-like claws at DragonMan.DragonMan dodged every one of Psycho Wolf's attacks as Psycho Wolf just ended up cutting through furnature and the wall instead.Once the opening revealed itself, DragonMan took it as he started viciously beating Psycho Wolf.Pow! Pow! Kapow! Blam! Pow!Psycho Wolf stumbled back for a second and spat out a tooth, before glaring at DragonMan as he opened his three fused mouths as his mouth started to glow yellow. Before suddenly a destructive hyper sonic soundwave exploded out of Psycho Wolf's mouth as he attempted to hit DragonMan with it."RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"DragonMan luckily leaped out of the way of it as he combat rolled and dashed up to Psycho Wolf and gave him a powerful right hook. Psycho Wolf let out another growl of fury before swinging one of his claws straight at DragonMan, who caught it.DragonMan held onto Psycho Wolf's arm before he swung Psycho Wolf over his shoulder and smashed him into the ground. Causing the criminal to crash through three more floors.Crash! Bash! Crash!Psycho Wolf smashed through the rubble that buried him as he growled and looked around, seeing that he was in an apartment much like the first one. But as he looked to his left, he saw a terrified family cowering in the corner of the apartment.But before Psycho Wolf could respond, DragonMan jumped through the series of holes and landed beside Psycho Wolf before performing a spin kick and sent Psycho Wolf stumbling back.Psycho Wolf stood back up as he traded glances between DragonMan and the family, as a sinister smile crept across his deformed muzzles. Psycho Wolf started to turn his attention to the support beams around the apartment as he swung his mighty claws and started to rip apart the beams.Eventually, Psycho Wolf stopped and backed up towards the wall, before waving goodbye in a mocking fashion as he turned around and smashed his way out of the building.DragonMan's eyes widened as the apartment started to collapse upon itself. DragonMan looked over at the cowering family as he dashed over to them and wrapped the two of the children in his arms before yelling at the two parents."Eu não posso carregar todos vocês! Agarre-se em mim e segure firme!"'I can't carry you all! Grab onto me and hold tight!'And just as DragonMan ordered, the two parents grabbed onto DragonMan's arms as he dashed out of the crumbling apartment and leaped out of the building.But before DragonMan hit the ground, he spread his wings and slowed his decent, as he landed safely the parents let go as DragonMan let go of the children as they immediately huddled together."Alguém está ferido? Estão todos bem?"'Is anyone hurt? Is everyone okay?'The frightened family nodded as DragonMan reached behind him and pulled out a stack of Brazilian real worth several thousand US dollars and handed it to the father of the family."Isso deve cobrir a caixa. Agora vá para um lugar seguro."'This should cover the housing. Now get to a safe place.'The family hesitantly nodded their heads before DragonMan spread his wings and took off into the air.Psycho Wolf meanwhile leaped to a lower building as the helicopters stayed on his tail. Psycho Wolf quickly and flawlessly grabbed and tore off a massive air conditioning unit from the building he was running across and tossed it at one of the helicopters. Causing it to blow up and fall to the ground.Kaboom!Psycho Wolf continued running as he leaped off the building and onto a busy highway where he continued to run as helicopters and armored vehicles followed close behind him.Psycho Wolf flipped cars over and knocked them aside as the military attempted to keep up with him. Soon a pileup started to occur as cars started to crash into each other and build a bariccade of cars to stop several of the armored vehicles in their paths while others made it through."Psycho Wolf to base! We were ambushed and I'm on the run! I have the item and I need an extraction, ASAP!" Yelled Psycho Wolf pressing the communicator in his ear as he continued his unstoppable pace. As he looked around for another route to escape, he saw that behind an overbearing bridge ahead of him is another road he can get on. He continued knocking cars and trucks aside with little difficulty as he started to get closer to an overhead bridge."Foundation Officer Johnson to General Varela; Stand down and assist any injured citizen until we say so." Stated Foundation Agent Johnson from one of the helicopters following Psycho Wolf."Negative! The fugitive is in BRAZIL which is MY jurisdiction! This is a Brazilian case!" Replied General Varela from a command center nearby."Negative, General. Might I remind you that this is an international case? You have no power here. Stand down and tell your men to make a perimeter around the effected area and assist injured civilians, NOW!" Replied Agent Johnson as DragonMan landed on a nearby road where he could see the chase still going on. DragonMan spun around as he started to run in the direction of the chase.Psycho Wolf made his way to the overbearing bridge and leapt into the air and unleashed a super sonic roar that shattered the bridge like paper."RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"Krash!But as Psycho Wolf was about to jump onto the bridge, DragonMan leaped in from the side as he jumped on Psycho Wolf's back and got the monster into a headlock."Pull over, now! Or I'll MAKE you!" Roared DragonMan as Psycho Wolf landed on the same highway he was on before and continued to sprint, even with DragonMan on his back."Never! I would rather die then surrender and disgrace the OVERLORD!" Roared Psycho Wolf as he used several of his extra arms to try and grab DragonMan and pull him off his back and rip him apart, while Psycho Wolf focused on the road.The hands slashed at DragonMan before DragonMan snatched both of the assaulting arms and broke their wrists. Although this disables the arms, it didn't stop Psycho Wolf's relentless running. He either didn't feel it, or he ignored the pain to accomplish his mission."For the Overlord! For my master! For the OVERLORD!" Repeated Psycho Wolf over and over as he kept running."Fine then, I'll just make you heel myself!" Yelled DragonMan as he started clawing at Psycho Wolf's head. But as DragonMan started to claw deeper and deeper into the side of Psycho Wolf's head, Psycho Wolf reached out one of his arms to stop DragonMan, only to accidentally trip over himself and loose his balance.That's when DragonMan leaped off of the villain and kicked him straight off the highway as Psycho Wolf tumbled and broke through the road barrier and crashed into a factory below him.Krash! Crash!As Psycho Wolf fell through the ceiling he crashed directly on top of a pile of logs, shattering them.Crack!DragonMan leaped off of the bridge as he landed on the edge of the hole in the roof and gazed in to see Psycho Wolf lying on his chest. DragonMan leaped in the wood factory and landed in front of Psycho Wolf as the metahuman stood back up."Last chance, surrender and we can end it now." Ordered DragonMan as Psycho Wolf glared at DragonMan, before suddenly leaping at him with his teeth and claws out."NEVER, SCUM! THE EARTH WILL BELONG TO MY LORD AND MASTER AS YOU LAWLESS ANIMALS GRAVEL AT HIS FEET! FOR THE EUDAIMONIA EMPIRE! FOR THE OVERLORD!" Roared Psycho Wolf as DragonMan reached over next to him and grabbed a large tree log.Grabbing onto it, he swung it directly at Psycho Wolf. Completely splintering the log in half and sending Psycho Wolf straight into a nearby machine.Crack! Krash!"They always choose the hard way..." Uttered DragonMan as he dropped the splintered log and walked over to Psycho Wolf. Psycho Wolf was conscious but just barely as he pulled him out of the rubble and onto his feet.DragonMan placed three cuffs on him to hold all four of his arms as he was about to pull him away. But before he did, soldiers and armored vehicles started pouring into the factory as they all aimed their weapons at DragonMan and Psycho Wolf.Helicopters surrounded the airspace as they shined their spotlights through the giant hole in the ceiling, right on top of the two as soldiers started to move closer with their weapons trained on them."Hands in the air, now!" Yelled one of the soldiers as DragonMan and Psycho Wolf both placed their hands in the air as the soldiers ordered."Out of the way, move it!" Yelled a voice from behind the wall of soldiers as the wall of Brazilian soldiers and UN Peacekeepers stepped aside as soldiers in heavy blue and metallic armor came walking in with their entire bodies being covered up and each carrying advanced looking rifles.The soldiers soon moved flawlessly as they all stood in an organized manner in front of the Brazilian and Peacekeepers, standing at attention as two new figures came walking in. Unlike all the other soldiers, these two were a man and a woman who wore light blue uniforms, had bullet proof vests on, and wore sunglasses.That's when one of the armored soldiers turned to the man and woman and spoke."Old IronSides Five Ten reporting in. Area is secure and the fugitives are surrounded. Nobody's leaving without our say so." The two agents pulled out advanced hand-sized lazer weapons and aimed them at DragonMan and Psycho Wolf as the man spoke first."Special Agent Johnathan Clifton of the Foundation.""Special Agent Lana Ritter of the Foundation. You are both under arrest for confirmed and suspected involvement of the global bombings that occurred. Submit and surrender, and we promise this whole process will go along a lot smoother." Stated Agent Lana as she continued to aim her weapon at the two."The Foundation; A global agency entrusted by the UN as an international peacekeeping force. An Anti-Terrorism agency with technology decades beyond any other technology the human race currently possesses." Stated DragonMan as Johnathan smirked at the statement."So you know about the Foundation, big deal. That doesn't make us buddy-buddies, you know.""We're on the same side here, I was investigating the culprits behind the attacks, until they brought me here. I know you want to take Psycho Wolf in for interrogation, but I believe I'm on to something, I just need him for a few days for questioning, and then I'll bring him back for proper detainment and questioning." Stated DragonMan as Lana and Johnathan couldn't help but share a chuckle."Your joking right? You honestly think we're going to just let you take that monster? Nonetheless LEAVE at all? No, your BOTH wanted for questioning. In fact, we're killing two birds with one stone. Several law enforcement agencies have been after you for a while, DragonMan.""I am on your side. We want the same thing, to keep people safe. There's a maniac out there planning something big and he needs to be stopped as soon as possible. I respect your jobs and integrity, but I am going to stop this 'Overlord' no matter what." Stated DragonMan as he subtlety reached over to Psycho Wolf and pulled off a small piece of his armor."That was a lovely speech, but your not going anywhere. Get your hands back in the air and get on the ground before we start firing. Your coming with us, end of story." Stated Lana as DragonMan glanced all across the factory to see Peacekeepers, Brazilian soldiers, and Foundation soldiers all having their weapons locked on him."Not today..." Uttered DragonMan as he pressed a button on his wrist and slowly started to take a few steps back."Hey, where do you think you're going!? FREEZE!" Yelled Jonathan as the rest of the soldiers started cocking their weapons."We said freeze! Freeze now or-" But Johnathan wasn't able to finish as within the blink of an eye, DragonMan's wings spread out and flapped with enough force to knock back all the soldiers in the room and propel him straight up into the air and past the helicopters, as he flew higher and higher.When DragonMan was at an optimum height, the Dragon Jet started flying by as he spun in the air and landed in the open cockpit. Before the jet flew off.The soldiers and agents got back up as Agents Johnathan and Lana walked over to the big hole in the ceiling and looked up."Well, that was something alright." Stated one of the armored Foundation soldiers as he walked up beside Johnathan and Lana."That's enough, Captain Burch." Stated Johnathan as the three looked down to see Psycho Wolf on the ground and on his knees in front of them."What are you waiting for, take this freak away." Ordered Lana as she looked back up at the remaining armored soldiers and gestured over to Psycho Wolf. The soldiers moved in as they grabbed Psycho Wolf by the arms as they pulled him away.The Dragon Lair- Near Knight Manner, New York City, America"And how was your trip to Brazil?" Asked Elise as DragonMan walked by her and place the piece of technology that he snatched from Psycho Wolf on an analysis table."Well, much less pleasant than my business trip there last year." Replied DragonMan as he turned to the computer and spoke."Run analysis." The computer obeyed DragonMan's orders as the analysis table the piece of machinery was placed on started to analyze it."You stated that Eudaimonia terrorists were going to make a trade with a corrupt business man in Brazil. What was so important for those terrorists to trade right after the bombings?" Asked Elise as DragonMan looked over at the computer to see different scans of the piece of technology he brought back."It was a large cylinder piece of technology. After getting a good look at it it appears to be an experimental device meant to prevent and stop Earthquakes in their tracks." Stated DragonMan as he walked over to the large computer beside him and started typing out the name of the device he saw."How fascinating... I also expect that if modified it can be used as some kind of super weapon." Replied Elise as DragonMan merely nodded his head."That's correct. With the right modifications, the device can be used to create devastating Earthquakes. Although I doubt that this is the only piece of high-tech machinery they are after." Stated DragonMan as Elise shot him a look of confusion."What do you mean?""If the cylinder device was modified and used on it's own to create an Earthquake, it would be very devastating, yes. But it still wouldn't cause as much damage as the bombings the Eudaimonians caused earlier. More then likely, their building something. Something big..." Stated DragonMan as he turned back to the computer and typed away as Elise glanced over at the piece of Eudaimonian technology on the analysis table and the readings of it still on the computer screen."That's some advanced technology. I worked in the DGSE for a while, and saw many odd and fantastical things while working there, but nothing like this. From the design of the device and the readings of it, in both structure and energies... It almost seems alien." Stated Elise as DragonMan rolled his eyes."What? Are you saying we're being invaded by space aliens?" Asked DragonMan with a slight chuckle."Are you seriously stating that something like space aliens are out of the realm of possibility? There's also the high possibility that they have limited resources and can only do so much. That's probably why they're relying on much more 'inferior' technology to achieve their goals. And whatever those goals are, they are not pretty." Said Elise as DragonMan pressed a button on the computer that changed into the cylinder Earthquake prevention piece of machinery DragonMan was talking about, plus a few others."I did some cross referencing and found several other parts of similar purpose and design." Said DragonMan as he pressed another button as the pieces came together into one machine."If put together, they can create a machine that can vastly enhance the destructive capabilities of the machine. Causing immeasurable levels of devastation and destruction. I have no doubt they'll be after the other parts next." Stated DragonMan as he scratched his chin, and started typing away at the computer again."I'll program the computer to alert us if any one of these parts are stolen from a government, military, or tech company from any part of the world. Although, there's still no assurance that that'll prevent them from stealing what they want. After all, the last deal I stopped happened because of a dirty businessman." Said DragonMan as he stood back up from his computer chair and pulled off his helmet."Yes, this is going to be tricky, but you have dealt with this before. Now, you have a pile of paperwork waiting for you at Knight Tower and you haven't eaten anything in eight hours." Stated Elise as DragonMan continued to pull off his armor."I'll pick up a sandwich at the convenience store." Replied DragonMan."Oh yes, a sandwich that tastes like cardboard and possibly teeming with an unknown amount of chemicals and bacteria. How appetizing... Luckily for you, I already made you something. A meal plan only rivaling the Michael Phelps diet. You will sit down and eat like a regular human being and you will like it." Stated Elise as DragonMan replied with a tired and slightly agitated response."Alright! I get it...""Also, when was the last time you slept?" Asked Elise."Reptiles sleep for three hours. I'm wide awake...""So you say...""*Sigh...*"The Dark Tower - The Eudaimonia Empire, The Arctic"I should've known sending Psycho Wolf out to retrieve the package was a bad idea. That stupid mutt couldn't handle the simple task of being a dilivery boy. Pathetic..." Uttered Spite in anger as he continued to type away at the large computer in front of him."Now because of that fool's failure, I have to not only find a replacement to the part that Psycho Wolf lost, but I also have to find the next piece of machinery on the Overlord's list. If I don't track down the necessary parts in time, the Overlord will melt me down into molten metal!" Exclaimed Spite fearfully as he continued to rapidly type away at the keys.Only for him to stop once he looked at the screen of his computer and saw the skull face of Blackout being reflected off the monitor. Spite spun around on his chair and stood up to face the silent cyborg."Blackout, have you attained any valuable data that we can use yet?" Asked Spite as Blackout lifted one of his metallic fingers and pointed at the monitor behind Spite. Spite turned back around only to see a notice on his screen as Spite read it."Well then, looks like luck is on our side after all. There are the two machine parts we need on Hawaii located somewhere in the Hickman Air Force Base. No doubt security will be tight after the bombings that occurred..." Said Spite thoughtfully as he rubbed his chin, before smirking and turning back to Blackout."But, I'm sure you're up to the task. Especially one that means so much to our master... Right, Blackout?" Asked Spite with a sinister smile, as Blackout merely nodded his head.
The Courageous DragonMan #10,Dragon Lair - New York City"What!? He did what now?!" Asked Elise with shock in her voice as DragonMan typed away on the computer.,"He INJECTED himself with the Millennium serum. For all I know it could still be mutating him, the effects of Millenium have NEVER been tested on a human before. And from the abilities he presented in the fight, I'm afraid to think about what he can evolve INTO." Stated DragonMan as he finished up typing on his computer and analyzed the screen, showing an entire map of Manhattan."With all those canisters of Dying Breath he stole and he spoke during our battle, I think he might try to USE it... With all the canisters he stole and the range that the gas can spread... That means that-" DragonMan was cut off by Elise."At least HALF of Manhattan is going to be covered in a cloud of poisonous gas..." Uttered Elise with a shocked expression."At first I though he might try to plant timed devices to release the gas all over the city to spread the gas as much as he can. But, I think he might just use the subways..." Said DragonMan as he pressed a button and the entire computer screen flashed to an overview map of all the subways that ran under and through New York City."How do you know he won't just drive through the city and use vans to inconspicuously spread it?" Asked Elise."I looked up the trains route schedule for today. I cross referenced all the times and stops the trains are supposed to take and the maximum disposal rate. Dispersing it via van can be inconspicuous but tracked and stopped. But how can you stop a train?" Asked DragonMan as he turned around and started walking away."Elise, contact the police and give them an anonymous tip. Tell them to evacuate everyone and secure the TCS' and all of the trains marked to travel at those times!" Stated DragonMan."On it." Stated Elise as she walked towards the Dragon Computer and DragonMan flew off.Grand Central Terminal - Manhattan, New York City In the Grand Central Terminal of Manhattan, it had it's average crowd of people boarding and unboarding trains. While others waited for their trains or other rides, conducted business, or simply took in the sites of the station. And as usual, several police patrolled the area and made sure to keep the peace.With the recent crime sprees going on, the police were told to be extra precautious as they kept their eye out for any sign of trouble. One cop walked through the crowds and stopped as he stood only a few dozen feet away from the Grand Central Clock.As the cop was about to radio in and alert the others that his section was clear, he stopped as he looked up and saw a man standing in front of the clock as he looked up at it. Seemingly nobody else in the crowd noticed him as the cop started to casually approach the man.But as he was about to question the man, he finally noticed the mask straps wrapped around the man's head and the automatic rifle that was in his arms. The cop was shocked the he didn't see it before as he wasted no time and pulled out his gun as he aimed it at the man."You! Drop the weapon and put your hands up!" The man then turned around to face the cop, only to reveal that he was wearing a gas mask and looked at the cop with zero emotion in his eyes."I said, drop the wea-" But the cop wasn't able to finish as he heard a growl that was upon him in a minute. As he looked over, he saw Big Claw instantly grabbed him with his oversized left hand and picked him up off the ground with a vice-like grip.,But as it seemed like Big Claw was about to crush him, Big Claw brought the cop to his oversized mouth as he opened up and immediately bit the cop's head off before tossing his body aside.Chomp!Big Claw spit the cops head out to the side as suddenly, more thugs in gas masks swarmed the station and fired their guns in the air as people screamed and ran around.Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!Put your hands up! Move to the clock with your hands behind your heads! DO IT!" Yelled one of the thugs as the others shouted the same thing as scared people put their hands behind their heads and gathered around the clock in the middle of the station."Attention people! My name is Big Claw, me and my men are not interested in hurting anyone. It's not even you we want, we are after something else. So I assure you, if you cooperate with us, all of you can go home and hug your families again... Disobey, and you WON'T go home and hug your families again. Understand?" Stated Big Claw in a booming voice, as the people all around the station looked on in fear and confusion, but became slightly more orderly as they did as the men ordered them and gathered around the Grand Central Terminal clock and got on the ground."Sorera o hitotsura ni narabete kudasai. Sorera no izureka o korosanai yō ni saizen o tsukushimasu. Watashitachi wa karera ga dekiru dake ochitsuku hitsuyō ga arimasu, samonakereba karera wa hankō shi hajimemasu..." Big Claw whispered to the thug next to him as he nodded and moved forward. The thug then spoke into the radio in his hand and inform the other armed men about their boss' orders.'Keep them in line. Do your best to not kill any of them. We need them to be as calm as possible or else they'll start revolting...'Big Claw simply looked on at all the cowering people that were still being gathered around the clock with zero empathy. Big Claw then glanced to his left as he saw two of his men carrying in what appears to be a machine with four Dying Breath canisters attached to them and placed in the middle of the station.Big Claw walked over to the machine as he started pressing the keys on the keypad and activated the device.Beep!The device beeped as a number appeared on the screen and started counting down from 30:00. Big Claw took a step back as he pulled up a radio to his face and started speaking."Grand Central Terminal is secured. Report, North side!" Said Big Claw as a voice replied from the other side."North train secured. The device is activated, civilians are subdued, and we have control of the train." Replied a thug from the North side."South side, report!""South side secure!" Replied a goon."East side, report!""East side secure!" Replied a goon."West side, report!" Yelled Big Claw, only for a few moments of radio silence to occur."West side, I said report!" Replied Big Claw as his anger started to grow."Not yet secure sir, almost ready." Replied the goon on the other side as Big Claw let out an annoyed growl."Get it ready... NOW." Growled Big Claw through the radio before lowering it by his side again.Clinton- Manhattan, New York City (WEST)As the train stopped at the train station, the doors opened up and people started walking in and out of the cars. This lasted a few more seconds before the groups of people started to thin out. As the people entering the train either found seats or stood and grabbed handles to keep their balances.But, as the very last people exited and entered the train, everything was thrown into chaos as gunshots rang throughout the train and the train station.Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!"AAAAHHH! AAAAHHH!" Screamed several people as armed men with gas masks poured into the car and aimed their guns at the innocent civilians."Nobody move! Stay back or else guts will fly! I said stay back!" Yelled one of the thugs, as the scared civilians obeyed and got back as the thugs moved out of the way of the door. Only for two similarly dressed thugs to carry in a device with several canisters attached to it. as they placed in the middle of the car."Device and middle car secure! Report progress!" Yelled one of the thugs into his radio as a voice replied back."Back car secure!" Replied another man's voice."Conductor and train controls secured!" Replied another voice from the radio as the train doors closed and the train started to move along the tracks. One of the men pressed several keys on the keypad before speaking into their radio once more."West side, secure!" Reported the thug."Yoi. Sate, anata ga herikoputā o oikakete iru no o mi tari, hitori no hitojichi ga toraburu o hikiokoshi hajimetara, enryonaku kyokudo no chikara de sewa o shite kudasai. Wakarimashita ka?" Uttered Big Claw through the radio.'Good. Now, if you see a helicopter following you, or if a single hostage starts causing trouble, do not hesitate to take care of it with extreme force. Understood?' "Ryōkaishimashita, sā." Replied the thug before placing the radio back on his hip.'Understood, Sir.'That's when one of the men pulled out a large black bag as he started to hold it out and walk around the train car."Attention everyone, our associate is going to walk around the train car and collect your phones..." Stated one of the thugs as civilians including Valerie dropped their phones into the bag as the thug held it out."Please don't make trouble for us or try any heroics. Or, he WILL kill you." Stated the main thug as he scanned the group of scared civilians in front of him.The train ran along the tracks through Midtown West and was about to cross into Chelsea. In the back, middle, and front of the train thugs in gas masks with automatic weapons roamed the cars and made sure that no civilians tried to escape, call for help, or cause any type of trouble.In the middle car of the ten car train, sat the device as the digits on the screen started counting down.In the back of the train, several thugs roamed the car and kept their eyes on the frightened people. But as things seemed like they were about to move smoothly with no interruptions, DragonMan tore through the back of the car.Creeeeaaash!The the civilians ran towards the front of the car as the thugs only had the time to look over and see DragonMan. As he instantly punched one of the men and sent him flying and broke a window, as he simply knocked the other thug aside.The civilians looked on in shock as DragonMan rushed past them and broke through the car door and entered the next one.In the middle car, one of the thugs' radio went wild as he held it to his head to hear it."DragonMan's here! DragonMan's here and he already took care of the back car and finished up with the front of the train! He's coming for- Ugh!" The thug on the radio wasn't able to finish his sentence before he immediately cut out.The thug immediately lowered the radio and looked at the men on his left and right and yelled at his fellow gunmen."DragonMan is here! He took down the others and he's coming from the front of the train!" Yelled the thug as all the gunmen aimed their weapons at the door of the train car that lead to the front of the train.The men stood there for a moment and waited for DragonMan to either open the door or bust through the door. But as all of the gunmen had their trances fixed on the door, DragonMan suddenly burst through the roof of the car and shocked all the gunmen as they spun around.Creeeaaash!The gunmen started firing at DragonMan as each shot bounced off of DragonMan's armor as DragonMan didn't waste any time. Smacking the first gunman to the side before knocking three of them to the end of the train car and wrapping his tail around the neck of one of the thugs who were behind him and tossing him into a nearby window. DragonMan uppercutted the final gunman, knocking his head through the metal roof of the car as his body hung there.DragonMan then turned his attention back to the device in the middle of the car as he pulled the panel open and was met with a series of several multicolored wires. DragonMan reached in and disconnected five red wires before rearranging several other wires in the device.As another moment passed, the screen of the device flashed from orange to green and read 'Disarmed'."Master Will, I would advise that you hurry. I already alerted Adrian Finch about the situation as he's focusing on evacuating as many people as he can and stop the trains that are hijacked. But you MUST hurry sir, we have no idea how long we have until one of those weapons goes off!" Stated Elise from DragonMan's communicator."Trust me, I got a good whiff of the scent of these guys and the models of their weapons. I'll find them all. Failure is not an option!" Replied DragonMan as he spread his wings and flew into the sky as fast as he could.Washington Heights - Manhattan, New York City (NORTH)Armed men prowled around the train that made it's way through Washington Heights as it started to pass into Hamilton Heights as the device in the middle car of the train continued to count down.In the middle car, civilians continued to sit on the floor of the car and remained quiet as one of the thugs listened to something on his radio before lowering it and turning to his fellow thugs."The DragonMan is coming! Get the weapons ready! We're gonna need as much firepower as we can carry to kill that freak!" Ordered the lead thug as the other thugs nodded in understanding.The scared civilians continued to quietly look on as the men pulled in massive black cases. The thugs then popped open the cases only to pull out advanced weapons, including heavy duty machine guns and even what appeared to be rocket launchers and what appeared to be an energy weapon."Wait, we can't do this! These weapons are WAY TOO DANGEROUS! They can blow up the entire train!" Yelled one of the thugs in fear as the lead thug turned to him and pointed his rifle at his chest."You know what? If you're gonna be a problem, we'll just kill you. I'm sure the boss will completely understand!" Threatened the lead thug as the other thug backed off."Wait! Wait! Wait! Just hold on a second! I won't say anything I promise! I-" But before he could finish, something busted through the door connecting to the back of the car.Crash!The thugs all looked over to see DragonMan stood there and stared down all his enemies with fury in his eyes."Kill him! Fire! Fire!" Yelled the lead thug as he turned his attention away from the other thug, as he held up one of the heavy duty machine guns and started firing at DragonMan along with the other thugs.Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta!"Get down! Get down!" Yelled DragonMan as the hostages started to scream and cower as bullets flew straight towards DragonMan and bounced off of his armor.DragonMan immediately started punching and knocking thugs back and bashing others against the sides of the train. None of the thugs even stood a chance as DragonMan continued to casually smacked them aside like annoying nates."Hey, how do you like this!?" Yelled the voice of one of the thugs as DragonMan looked up just in time to see one of the men holding what appears to be an advanced energy weapon as DragonMan's eyes widened.Vrroooom!Without even thinking, DragonMan was blasted by a powerful wave on energy that sent him flying through the roof of the train and sent him through the air.Meanwhile back in the train, the other thug picked up the rocket launcher and aimed it at DragonMan through the hole in the roof, before firing three heat seeking missiles.The second DragonMan spread his wings and got control of his balance in the air, he saw the missiles headed straight for him as the first one hit him and exploded on contact.Kaboom!DragonMan was blown back once again, before catching his fall and seeing the arrival of the second missile. DragonMan saw the missile and flew high in the air to avoid it, before the missile immediately changed directions and headed for DragonMan.DragonMan turned to the missile as he immediately recognized it as being a heat-seeking missile. Thus, DragonMan quickly turned around and blasted the second and third missiles with balls of fire. Blasting them into oblivion.Boom! Kaboom!The thugs in the train immediately looked up in fear as they saw DragonMan careening towards them through the air. The thug carrying the rocket launcher, shot several more rockets at DragonMan. Only for DragonMan to release several blasts of fire into the air, immediately redirecting the directions of the rockets as they blew up in mid-air.The thugs didn't have a second to react as DragonMan landed in the car as the thugs aimed their weapons at him. DragonMan launched forward with his claws splayed out as his razor sharp claws cut through all of the thugs weapons like a hot knife through butter.As DragonMan halted his movement behind the thugs and stood there for a moment, the guns seemed to be unaffected. Before immediately falling apart in perfectly cut patterns and falling to the floor. As the thugs looked back in fear, DragonMan quickly lunged forward once more and knocked all the thugs out.After taking care of the thugs, DragonMan looked back at the device sitting in the middle of the train as DragonMan quickly dashed over to it and pulled off it's panel. As he ripped out several of the red wires and rearranged several of the multicolored wires, the device was deactivated.But behind DragonMan's back, one of the injured thugs grabbed the missile launcher near him as he shakily lifted it up and aimed it towards DragonMan. As the man started pressing down on the trigger, DragonMan heard the slight clicking of the trigger as he turned around right as a missile was fired right at DragonMan. Whooom!Only for DragonMan to smack the missile away and sent it flying through the hole in the roof, before charging at the thug and knocking him out.But as DragonMan dropped the unconscious man to the ground and looked around to make sure everyone was okay, he heard a loud boom outside.Boom!The sound came from outside, as DragonMan jumped through the hole in the roof as hovered in the air. Only to see that a few hundred feet away, the missile landed right on the train tracks. DragonMan's eyes widened, before he immediately soared to the side of the speeding train and started running and stayed at the same speed as the train.As the train got closer and closer to the destroyed tracks. DragonMan dashed to the front of the train and dug his claws into the train and his heels into the ground as the ground was torn up.SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!As DragonMan kept his position and tried to hold the train back as it started to slow down.Skreeeeeeeeee....Finally, the train came to a stop right before it reached the destroyed tracks. DragonMan pulled his claws out of the train as he started to walk off."Elise, tell Finch the northern hijacked train has been taken care of and the bomb is defused. I'm heading to the next one!" Stated DragonMan as he spread his wings and flew into the air.Grand Central Terminal - Manhattan, New York City Big Claw stood in the middle of the Terminal as his armed men continued to patrol the area and keep the scared cowering people in clustered groups to prevent them from escaping.But as Big Claw stared at the massive clock at the end of the Terminal, one of his men ran up behind him and spoke with an urgent tone of voice."Sir! We tried to contact the west side and north side, but both were completely radio silent. And we got reports that DragonMan has been seen flying throughout the areas where our men were. I think he's disarming the weapons. It's only a matter of time before he ends up here!" Stated the thug as Big Claw turned to him with a smirking maw full of razor sharp teeth."Hehehe... Well then, let's not disappoint him. Alert the rest of the remaining men about what's going on, DO NOT underestimate him. And if they use ANY method available to take care of him. Understand?" Asked the thug as the thug nodded eagerly."Yes, sir!" The thug turned around and walked away as Big Claw looked back at the large clock at the end of the Terminal and smiled.'Even if he got the first two gas weapons, it doesn't matter... His time is running out, and he won't make it to the last two.' Thought Big Claw as his smirk grew bigger.Lenox Hill- Manhattan, New York City (EAST)The timer on the machine continued to count down as it was only 30 seconds from releasing the deadly nerve gas Dying Breath. Thugs looked out the windows of the train with many holding their regular firearms while others held more heavy duty military grade weapons.The train continued to speed down the tracks as the seconds on the machine continued to count down while the thugs in the train braced themselves.25 seconds remained as suddenly multiple blasts of fire tore through the walls of the train and windows.Froosh! Froosh! Froosh! Froosh! Froosh!Hitting the thugs and knocking them down while still managing to avoid all the scared civilians still on the ground with only a few left standing."What was that!?" Yelled one thug as DragonMan smashed into the train car.Creeesh!"Fire! Fire!" Yelled one of the thugs as the few remaining thugs started to fire at DragonMan only for DragonMan to knock all of them out with ease.DragonMan turned to the device as he saw it was already down to 20 seconds. DragonMan quickly removed the front panel as he quickly rearranged several wires and tore out all the reds.Without wasting another second, DragonMan quickly spun around and flew off to the south side of Manhattan. Knowing that he only had less then 20 seconds to stop the final chemical weapon.Wall Street - Manhattan, New York City (SOUTH)The train sped down the tracks next to the edge of the water. As the chemical weapon in the middle car and prowling thugs only had 15 seconds left before it reached zero.DragonMan careened through the air straight at the speeding train. Within less then a second, DragonMan smashed through the roof and landed in the car.Creeash!Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta!The thugs tried to stave off DragonMan for as long as they could, but they were quickly knocked aside as their guns were virtually worthless against DragonMan. After kicking the final thug back, he turned around to see to his shock, one of the bullets hit the device. DragonMan had no idea how that could affect the countdown or function of the device, but had no time to think as he saw that the timer was already at 10 seconds.DragonMan tore open the panel and tried to rearrange the colored wired and tear out the reds as fast as he could as the machine only had 5 more seconds left. But the timer didn't stop, confirming DragonMan's worries that the bullet that hit the device did something to disable the shutdown routine.Only 3 seconds left as DragonMan quickly grabbed the device and flew, busting out of the train car and flying as fast as he could and as high as he could, as he overlooked the water. Before tossing it with all of his might.The device was sent flying hundreds of feet through the air as the device finally hit zero and released the orange gas. Right as it fell into the ocean and sank to the bottom of Manhattan Harbor. Meanwhile, DragonMan hovered there as he looked over the bay before turning around and flying back towards the train and flew back in through one of the two holes in the roof."Is everyone okay?" Asked DragonMan as he walked down the car and scanned the area. Only to see that everyone was indeed unharmed and gave out multiple utterances of assurance.DragonMan bent down and picked up one of the radios from one of the knocked out thugs and started listening to it."At this point, the fourth device should have gone off by now... Although, I still have no idea if DragonMan got to it or not. Even if he did, there is one final device he will never get to. Prepare yourselves for the city that never sleeps to be turned into the city that will sleep FOREVER..." Uttered Big Claw through the radio as DragonMan spread his wings and took off into the sky.Grand Central Terminal - Manhattan, New York City Big Claw pressed a button on the device in the middle of the Terminal as the device started to countdown.Meanwhile, the area remained the same way as it was before with terrified people huddled up into corners with their heads down as thugs prowl the Terminal.But as the thugs continued their patrol of the area as they walked behind the pillars of the Terminal, they strangely disappeared.The disappearances only continue as the thugs continue to be snatched by something from the unseen corners of the Terminal.Eventually, several of the remaining thugs stopped and noticed that most of them were gone. Which only frightened them even more since they only noticed the majority of disappearances at that moment."Wait, where is everyone!? Where did they go!?" Asked one of the thugs fearfully. As all the patrolling thugs started to converge back into the middle of the Terminal, and looked around for the perpetrator or perpetrators who were responsible for their co-workers disappearances. "I-I think DragonMan might be here!" Uttered one of the thugs in horror as another thug dashed over to Big Claw."Sir! Over half of our men our missing! I think DragonMan is here!" Stated the thug as Big Claw turned to him."About time..." Uttered Big Claw as suddenly, DragonMan seemingly leaped out of nowhere and dashed through the air until he landed before the remaining thugs.The men then started to fire indiscriminately at DragonMan.Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta! Ratta! Tatta!But they all bounced off of DragonMan's armor as expected as DragonMan started punching thugs and sending them flying back, smacking them aside, crushing their weapons like pieces of cardboard, and flicking the rest aside with phenomenal strength.The last thug screamed as he made one final attack. He aimed his gun at DragonMan's face and started firing away. Only making DragonMan slightly flinch, before DragonMan smacked the thug aside. DragonMan snatched the gun away from the thug and broke it in half before he started approaching Big Claw."Impressive, I didn't think you were able to make an entrance without breaking down doors and destroy everything in sight like some monster." Stated Big Claw with a mocking smirk."I am skilled in several arts of stealth. If not for your men I could've sneaked up behind you and toss you through the roof." Replied DragonMan as his eyes glanced at the device next to the Yakuza boss."You may have defused the other dispersal units, but not this one... When this one goes off, it'll cover a very large percentage of Manhattan in poisonous gas. But first, you'll have to get through ME to defuse it." Growled Big Claw as DragonMan glared at him, before turning around and blasted the blocked passageways around the Terminal.Froosh! Boom! Froosh! Boom! Froosh! Boom! Froosh! Boom!The frightened people silently traded glances between DragonMan and the opened exits."Everyone! Get out of here! Now!" Ordered DragonMan as the people turned back to the exits and started running through them."And that's why I'll win..." DragonMan turned to Big Claw at the last second, before Big Claw punched DragonMan and sent him flying through the air. As he smashed right into a wall.KRASH!"-... Because I'm not constantly babysitting people caught in the crossfire." Finished Big Claw as DragonMan push piles of rubble off of him and stood back up."I'm good at multi-tasking..." Replied DragonMan from the other end of the Terminal before he leaped through the air and straight towards Big Claw. But as Big Claw readied himself, DragonMan flipped over Big Claw's head, before grabbing him by his shoulders and tossing him straight through a pillar and into a wall.KRASH! SMASH!DragonMan spun around and dashed over to the machine where he opened the panel. Only to see that this dispersal device was much more complex than the last devices. But before he could even reach into the device, he heard the noise of Big Claw smashing his way out of the rubble.Smash!DragonMan turned around to see Big Claw charging straight towards him with his palm aimed at him as he fired bullets of yellow energy.Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! Kapew!DragonMan quickly dodged Big Claws energy bullets and started firing back with blasts of fire of his own. All the while the two juggernauts charged at each other and traded powerful blows.Pow!Forcing both of them back, before charging into each other once more. DragonMan started started assaulting Big Claw with a series of punches and kicks while Big Claw unleashed an assault of punches and kicks of his own.DragonMan dodged several of Big Claws punches and started assaulting Big Claw with his own blows. Although it barely made a serious dent in Big Claw as Big Claw started swinging around his own hand and tried to hit DragonMan, only for the hero to just barely dodge every blow. Big Claw's oversized claw was like a wrecking ball, only a hundred times more devastating.But as Big Claw swung his hand once more DragonMan got close enough to Big Claw's face and started unleashing a flurry of punches and kicks, which made Big Claw stumble back. But as DragonMan made him stumble back even further with a tail swipe, DragonMan got closer with a final blow.Pow!But Big Claw caught the blow at the last moment with his smaller right hand, before raising his larger left hand and smacked DragonMan. Smashing him into the ground.Krash!The villain then reached down and picked up DragonMan before tossing him into the ceiling of the Terminal.Crash!As DragonMan fell back down to the ground, Big Claw charged forward and with his left fist, punched DragonMan with such force he rocketed to the other end of the Terminal. With the force of the hit being so powerful, the surrounding windows shattered as DragonMan's body tore up the solid floor and crashed right into the Grand Central Terminal's clock.SMASH!"Don't you see now, mutant? I am the Divine Dragon of the Miyazaki's! It is my DESTINY to rule over this city! And you can't stop me!" Boasted Big Claw as he walked closer to the area where the clock used to be, as DragonMan picked himself up and faced away from Big Claw. Resting his hand on the clock that was lying on the ground next to him."I doubt you can fit that in your schedule. Check the clock." Replied DragonMan as he grabbed the clock and tossed it at Big Claw.Bash!Big Claw merely swiped the colossal clock aside, but that was only a diversion as Big Claw found out the hard way as a burning DragonMan tackled him and wrapped his arms around him. Pile driving him through any obstacle in his way as he smashed DragonMan into a wall.Smash!DragonMan unleashed a flurry of devastating punches that pushed Big Claw further and further into the wall. Cracks in the wall started to form, as DragonMan ended his flurry of fists with one final punch to the face which pushed Big Claw further into the wall.Pow! Crash!But as DragonMan halted his attack, one of the massive cracks in the wall started to move upward, as DragonMan looked up he saw that the cracks were headed towards one of the Terminal's pillars that was above him. The cracks soon circled around the massive pillar, before it collapsed and fell.Krash!But luckily, it just missed DragonMan and only landed behind him. DragonMan without any hesitation, turned around and picked up the massive pillar and held it over his head. Before swinging it down on Big Claw.SMASH!Burying Big Claw under the mass of rubble before turning back around and running towards the device. Looking back at the open access panel full of technicolored wires, he quickly scanned the array. Having basically no idea how to properly disarm the device safely as he reached forward and slowly grabbed one of the wires.But as DragonMan was about to pull the wire, a massive three fingered hand wrapped around DragonMan's head."Do you really think I'm stupid enough to have the same design for all my dispersal units!?" Roared Big Claw out of nowhere as his oversized hand grabbed DragonMan's head, swinging the hero over his head and smashing him into the ground.Crash!"These peasants need to know that the Yakuza is THE fiercest crime syndicate in all of New York City! And if I have to kill several thousand or million to get them scared enough to obey, so be it!" Yelled Big Claw as he grabbed DragonMan's leg, before tossing him through the air and letting out a supernatural energized roar that blasted DragonMan back and cracked the foundations of the Terminal around them."RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!"Krash!DragonMan crashed into the wall, before standing back up and charging straight at Big Claw. Big Claw only smirked as he charged back as DragonMan started launching fireballs straight at Big Claw.Froosh! Froosh! Froosh!Only for Big Claw to hold his left hand out in front of him like a shield. Blocking the majority of DragonMan's vicious attacks as the two collided, knocking each other back with violent punches.But the two quickly regained their balances as they collided once again and started trading blows. Big Claw then turned the tables as he aimed his left palm at DragonMan's face and fired away.Kapew!"Ugh!" Groaned DragonMan in pain as he was knocked to the ground by Big Claws energy bullets. But as DragonMan was about to pick himself back up, Big Claw wrapped his massive left hand around DragonMan's arms and torso and picked him up."The power I possess is great, but this form is still unstable. I have discovered I can regain stability by absorbing the DNA of others... Specifically those with power, and who has more power then the mighty DragonMan. I must consume you whole to gain your power..." Uttered Big Claw as he tightened his grip on DragonMan, nearly crushing him entirely."Aren't you even listening to yourself, Miyazaki?! You have become as far reached from humanity as anyone can possibly imagine! Your quest for power has literally turned you into a monster!" Yelled DragonMan as he struggled in Big Claw's grip."Sometimes, you have to become a monster to achieve your destiny... And I'm about to achieve mine. Don't be sad, DragonMan, after I consume you you'll be apart of me forever. And I will put your powers to better use then YOU ever could..." Stated Big Claw as he leaned his head back and started heaving, like he was about to throw up. But instead he opened his mouth as wide as it could go, before splitting open with his neck and torso opening up to reveal one giant mouth full of razor sharp teeth.DragonMan looked on in shock, awe, and disgust as Big Claw started to shove DragonMan into his oversized mouth. Big Claw started swallowing DragonMan like a boa constrictor as his body started to morph. His metallic skin started to turn green and scaly, his eyes started to turn orange with slits running down them, and he even started growing tiny stubs on his back that resembled premature wings.He started to BECOME DragonMan...But as Big Claw was thinking about leading the Yakuza into a golden age and ruling with an iron fist... He started to feel a surge of heat in his belly.But the heat didn't subside, it just grew hotter and hotter, as it moved to his backside. The monsters back started to glow with a hot red area...Big Claw's eyes widened in fear and realization in his obvious mistake, before the lower half of his back exploded with a beam of fire breath.FROOOSH!"RRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!"Big Claw pulled DragonMan out of his mouth and stumbled back as he screamed in pain. DragonMan regained his balance as he saw Big Claw's engorged mouth return to normal as his body did it's best to regenerate his back.DragonMan saw his opportunity as he wasted zero time in pulling out his sword and swung it at Big Claw.Ching! Shing! Ching! Shing!DragonMan created lacerations all over Big Claws body as golden blood started seeping from the crime lords wounds.But as Big Claw started swinging his fists with the force of a hundred jackhammers behind them, DragonMan dodged the monsters blows and leaped back. As his face plate slid open and unleashed his destructive fire breath and blasted through Big Claw's left shoulder.FROOOOSH!"Raaah! Sonotame ni anata no atama o hagashimasu, tokage!" Roared Big Claw as he turned back to DragonMan with a hateful expression.'Raaah! I'll tear off your head for that, lizard!'Big Claw charged forward as he held his massive left claw in the air to squash DragonMan. Only for DragonMan to stand his ground and held his sword on guard, waiting.Ching!And faster then the blink of an eye, DragonMan avoided Big Claw's attacks as he leaped forward and stabbed his sword through the bottom of Big Claw's head with the blade exiting from the top of his head. Big Claw's golden eyes budged as more golden blood started to spill from his wounds, as DragonMan pulled out his sword. As DragonMan spun around and swung his tail at Big Claw's face, knocking him aside and flinging him into a wall.Crash!DragonMan didn't waste another moment as he turned around and dashed back towards the dispersal device that was still counting down. It only had eight second left before it counted down to zero.DragonMan quickly scanned the technicolored wires that littered the open control panel as the countdown was starting to reach zero. Beads of sweat rolled down DragonMan's face as only three seconds remained.Going with his gut, DragonMan grabbed a red wire and two green wires before ripping them out. DragonMan readied himself for the possible releasing of the gas... But nothing came. He glanced at the countdown digits only to see that he disarmed the weapon just in time.DragonMan let out a sigh of relief as he pressed the communications device on the side of his helmet."Elise, it's done. All the weapons are disarmed. Tell finch to send in his men to each location." Said DragonMan."Right away, Sir." Replied Elise via the communicator as DragonMan heard the shifting of debris and rocks that were occurring behind him.DragonMan turned around to see a wounded Big Claw dig himself out of a pile of rock and debris he was buried under. DragonMan saw that the massive traumatic wounds inflicted on Big Claw were already starting to rapidly heal. The major wounds from the fire breath looked slightly deformed, yet they were still healed."Hahaha, you really think a few attacks like that are able to put me down. I am the DIVINE DRAGON! THE RIGHTFUL LORD OF THE YAKUZA! And it will take a lot more then that to take me down..." Growled Big Claw with a smirk, as DragonMan narrowed his eyes and pulled out his sword once more before getting into a defensive position.Big Claw merely scoffed."Hehe... This again? Cut me and I'll just heal up again." Stated Big Claw."Who said I was going to cut you?" Asked DragonMan as he twisted his blade around to it's fuller side; the middle of the sword that makes up the double edges of the weapon.Big Claw cocked and eyebrow in confusion as DragonMan suddenly leaped forward and pulled his sword back. Before swinging the fuller blunt side of the sword straight into Big Claw's chest and causing the Yakuza boss to fly into the air and smash out of Grand Central Terminal Crash!A few streets away from Grand Central Terminal, Big Claw careened through the air and crashed in the middle of the road.Smash!DragonMan flew down from the sky and landed only a few dozen feet away as Big Claw started to pick himself back up.'I can't let him get back up! I'm going to beat him until he STAYS DOWN!' Thought DragonMan as he grabs a nearby street pole and tears it out of the ground and turns back to Big Claw.As Big Claw regained his balance, he turned around only to see the very tail end of DragonMan charging straight at him as he used a street pole and hit Big Claw with everything he got. Breaking the street pole in the process and making him flying high.SLAM!As Big Claw careened through the air, he eventually flew straight into the top floor of a skyscraper.Krash!"This... This isn't happening... I am destined to rule New York City! And nothing will stop me!" Roared Big Claw in an inhuman voice as he stood back up, only to look over at the massive hole in the wall made by him. As he saw a figure in the distance get closer and closer.Before he even knew it, DragonMan flew straight through the hole in the wall and started pummeling Big Claw before he even had a chance to defend himself. Big Claw managed to get in one lucky hit on DragonMan, but DragonMan quickly retaliated with a vicious tornado kick which caused Big Claw to fly through several more walls of the office building.Crash! Krash! Bash! Krash!The Yakuza lord stood back up and glared through all the smashed holes in the wall, only for his eyes to widen. Seeing DragonMan with his face plate sliding open and unleached a mighty blast of fire.FROOOOSH!Sending Big Claw flying through more walls until he crashed through the final wall and fell from the hundred story sky scraper.Crash!Just like a rock, Big Claw careened back to the earth until he finally hit the ground with enough force to slightly shake the Earth and shatter nearby windows.KRAAAAASH!Big Claw lied on his back on the obliterated road as DragonMan who stood on the edge of the shattered wall Big Claw was blasted through, looked down. Before he suddenly leaped off the building and careened straight down towards the stunned Big Claw.As Big Claw's blurry vision returned and was able to see the sky and buildings that loomed over him in his stunned state, he saw yet again a familiar figure falling from the sky straight towards him. As the figure got closer, Big Claw's eyes widened in fear as he saw DragonMan falling straight towards him with his arms and legs sprawled out. Recognizing he was going to body slam him, from a height of several hundred feet..."... Oh sh-"KRAAAAAAAASH!Another crash rattled the Earth yet again and sent shockwaves that shattered even more windows, as DragonMan stood back up from the larger crater. As DragonMan brushed off his armor and the cloud of debris cleared up, he saw Big Claw lying back first and imprinted on the pavement.His eyes and mouth hung open as all he could do was let out a few tiny groans of pain, like every single bone in his body was completely pulverized."This time, STAY DOWN." Growled DragonMan as Big Claw replied with another small groan of agony.New York City - Manhattan"This is Ruby Rainville reporting live from Grand Central Terminal where a group of criminals attempted to unleash a chemical weapon upon Manhattan. Many were injured yet we still don't know how many were killed yet." Stated a beautiful female reporter as she stood in front of the nearly completely ruined Grand Central Terminal with a camera man filming her with several dozen police cars and ambulances covering the front of the Grand Central Terminal building."From the information discovered, the chemical was a deadly bio-weapon known as TR-242. It is currently believed that the gang managed to steal samples from the government as they attempted to use them to poison the city. Luckily none of the gas was released, as reports and sightings say that the vigilante known as DragonMan was responsible for disarming both the weapons and the gang members." Stated Ruby as the cameras switched over to others nearby who were filming the arrest of Big Claw. Several police and government agents attached a pair of advanced heavy duty cuffs on him and attached an advanced bite mask wrapped around his face."The leader of the gang has been identified as Kanaye Miyazaki, the current leader of the New York City branch of the Yakuza. As of now it's still unclear if he was enhanced through outer sources or if he is yet another Metahuman. But what is known is that DragonMan was the one who managed to defeat him and stop him in his tracks. Many are still wondering who this 'DragonMan' is and why he does what he does, but from all the people who were saved today and myself, we thank DragonMan for his heroic actions today. This is Ruby Rainville live, Channel 5 News." Said Ruby Rainville before Will reached for a key on the Dragon Computer and pressed it, shutting off the news as he turned back to his work on the computer.As Will tracked down the remaining Yakuza members that escaped and scattered during the chaos along with the mole in the FBI, Will placed a cigar in his mouth and lit it up. Letting out a puff of smoke before rolling it to the other side of his mouth."I know this cave is absolutely massive... But could you PLEASE do that outside? I can't stand the smell." Stated Elise as she walked down the stairs with a plate full of food. As she approached his table and placed his dinner in front of him."You know the deal, Elise. You said I could smoke anywhere but inside the house." Retorted Will without even looking away from the screen."You spend 70% of your time in this cave, a cave I have to clean by the way, and you don't consider it a part of the house?" Asked Elise with an annoyed tone."... Technically, it wasn't apart of the original design of the house. So yes." Stated Will as Elise rolled her eyes in annoyance as a moment of silence passed between the two."Are you still thinking about Kanaye?" Asked Elise out of nowhere as Will stopped typing on his computer for a moment, before continuing to type."... Yes. I just feel like, well, if I could've just talked to him. Reached out to him... Maybe..." Will trailed off as Elise placed her hand on his shoulder."Will, there was no way you could've helped him. He may have been a good friend years ago, but not any more. He was insane enough to inject himself with an untested nanite serum and he tried to poison Manhattan. There was no helping him."

FatTinkerbell Part 18To read Previous Story ---> THE NEW GIRL LEAVES To find the FatTinkerBell Series ---> FATTINKERBELL 2019-2020 RECAP:On the previous story THE NEW GIRL LEAVES , we talked about how the new girl SnoWhite was with the Soldiers for less than a month, and soon she turned in a report saying that she wishes to leave and work for the HELP CENTER, because that one supervisor BossBattle made her feel uncomfortable. However FatTinkerBell thought it was weird of her to do that and claim that, because aside from the fact that BossBattle does harrass women and has actually harrassed FatTinkerBell in the past. If SnowWhite is to work at the HELP CENTER, she will still see BossBattle REGARDLESS!! FatTinkerBell was so susicious of this decicion of SnoWhite, and alone she realized that SnoWhite has done it for Robocop as she is also interested and attracted to him., BLACK FRIDAY ORDEAL 1| The Following Is A True Story Experienced By The Author |Prince had scheduled everyone to work overtime on Black Friday. Even the people from the overnight shift had decided to take the overtime and join the all of the teams. The people from the morning had joined the afternoon teams as well. And many from the afternoon has join the morning people as well. So many Supervisors were gonna work overtime as well and work alongside each-other. The CaptainGirl for example, decided to work from 8am all the way until 10pm instead of 12-8pm.Prince went all out in giving everyone some good overtime. FatTinkerbell of course took the overtime to be able to be around Robocop and work alongside him on Black Friday morning, since he’ll be the Morning Supervisor on Black Friday. FatTinkerbell didn’t care for the moneyyyy… FatTinkerbell could give two SH-TS about the earnings, the pay, the overtime. She just wanted to see Robocop. Something exciting, fun, entertaining, and crazy would always happen with Robocop on shift.So FatTinkerbell slept only 6 hours since she left at 12AM the previous night and woke up early to drive CaptainGirl to work as well, so that CaptainGirl can spill all the tea she knows on the way to work. And at exactly 7AM they made it to work, they both grabbed a coffee and headed to the tiny office. In the tiny office you could see a couple morning employees getting ready, some of them were from the other shifts. And of course, you could see Robocop sat at the Supervisor Desk near the door, writing the list of people on the computer.As soon as both ladies stepped inside, Robocop looked up at them, he smiled, looked back down at the computer, and he says “Okay cool, so I’ve got two more helpers this morning.” Then CaptainGirl and FatTinkerbell also smile. It was weird for FatTinkerbell to be around Robocop, since she was completely and utterly attracted to him. But also with CaptainGirl in the same room since CaptainGirl would talk to FatTinkerbell, and FatTinkerbell would find it hard to express herself without being nervous about what she says or how she talks in front of Robocop. Without being nervous about how she sounds or how she answers.She didn’t want to turn Robocop off and sound as if she’s stupid.Most of the Black Friday Morning had gone as casual and as normal as it could. It was a more crowded morning compared to any other non-BlackFriday morning of course. Costumers started coming and coming.,Robocop had put FatTinkerbell in the Parking Garage for most of the morning shift. Which ultimately offended FatTinkerbell because it seemed like Robocop saw her as a nuisance and useless female who’s only gonna cause trouble for them,.. for the supervisors. It’s likely that the supervisors were sat on their ass having a blast talking about everything while the minimum wage employees have to be thrown to the wolves to suffer.But FatTinkerbell was put into the Praking Garage to not be a problem for the managers. To not get in their way. Specifically Robocop’s way. This made FatTinkerbell feel a certain type of way. FatTinkerbell wanted to think that maybe Robocop did this because he doesn’t want FatTinkerbell getting in trouble or being in the middle of the Black Friday madness. But it was just an assumption.FatTinkerbell saw another female coworker in there patrolling just like her. Except she was patrolling in the Soldier Vehicle. The coworker drove up to her to chat and get some FatTinkerbell gum. LOLAnd as soon as FatTinkerbell was handing a piece of gum to her coworker.. the customers run over to FatTinkerbell in a panic and they point towards some stairs. A man and a woman telling FatTinkerbell that someone fell down the stairs. FatTinkerbell turns to her coworker in pure shock, not believing what she just heard. And her coworker snapped her out of it and told her to go see the person. And so FatTinkerbell does, she runs towards those steps that the customers are crowding around. Unfortunately, the person who has fallen down that flight of steps is a pregnant woman. FatTinkerbell couldn’t believe what she was seeing, her instant reaction was to turn to her walkie-talkie to alert the Robocop and the King. Her coworker soon came over to tell FatTinkerbell that she’s calling the cops. FatTinkerbell went over to the victim to ask her how she feels. And she said that her head hurts and her back. FatTinkerbell then asked her if she can talk and move, and she just said she’s in pain. Then FatTinkerbell just told her to not move. She asked her for her info and emergency contacts, and it turned out that this woman was a Maze Employee, that she didn’t speak English very well.Thankfully FatTinkerbell spoke fluent Spanish. So she was able to easily communicate with her. She told her that she wanted to speak with her father. So then FatTinkerbell helped her to communicate with her father. Throughout this whole ordeal, while FatTinkerbell informed the King and Robocop who were elsewhere or who knows where. Robocop through the walkie-talkie seemed desperate to go to FatTinkerbell. It appeared he was stuck in another duty. Robocop through the walkie-talkie kept asking for a relief. Or someone to relieve him, so that he could go to where FatTinkerbell is.Bystanders, and other Soldiers were now surrounding the area. It was truly an unfortunate and tragic event. For a fully pregnant maybe 7 month-pregnant woman to have fallen down a flight of steps. The woman then started crying while talking to her father on the Soldier Phone.CaptainGirl later showed up next to FatTinkerbell, she tells her that Robocop was busy escorting or guarding something. Soon a couple of police officers showed up and begun comforting the pregnant woman on the floor. They were asking her questions on her pregnancy while she had tears in her eyes. CaptainGirl then orders FatTinkerbell to go to the top of those stairs to prevent customers from walking down those steps. And divert them elsewhere. And so FatTinkerbell did. More and more people crowded around as everyone waited for the Emergency and FireTruck to show up. FatTinkerbell kept just diverting the people from walking downstairs. Many customers wouldn’t move on but they’d stop to ask her questions. She was on the other side of the staircase answering people’s stupid questions about the Maze. When she was finally able to see the Pregnant lady on the floor, the EMT had already arrived and they were checking her. Robocop was now also there. He looked up at FatTinkerbell with his shades on. His shades like if he’s cool.This whole situation made FatTinkerbell feel so overwhelmed and anxious. She didn’t even know if she did something wrong or right or not. Although now she was even more anxious that Robocop is now there and staring straight at her. Her number-1 CRUSH, in the entire world. Robocop then went over to his supervisor buddy CaptainGirl who herself was more like a guy than any guy. LOLLOLLOLFatTinkerbell as nervous as she felt with Robocop now looking at her. She continued to do her job and remove the nosy customers from the staircase. Soon the pregnant lady was put on a stretcher and taken into the ambulance. All the Soldier employees looked in disbelief as the ambulance drove off. CaptainGirl then walked up to FatTinkerbell and she told her that she did a good job.Later everyone walked back into the tiny office so that Robocop could write about the entire incident on the computer. FatTinkerbell talked a little bit about it, but with Robocop in there.. she found it hard to do it, so she just excused herself and returned to work. CaptainGirl must’ve found it soo weird of FatTinkerbell to leave soo fast. But little did she know that FatTinkerbell was soo insanely attracted to him that she couldn’t even express herself. Although during the 3 sentences that FatTinkerbell said in there regarding the incident, Robocop was entirely silent and mute. It wasn’t known if this was because he was also nervous and liked her. Either way he already had SnoWhite wrapped around his finger. There was no reason for him to go obtain and conquer FatTinkerbell. There was now no reason at all for him to go chase after and conquer FatTinkerbell.He had the 50+ Women that we talked about in the previous stories. Why in the hell would he want to go after a low value woman like FatTinkerbell? It just made no sense. FatTinkerbell was then posted at that Promenade, and she again felt like this was Robocop saying that she’s a nuisance and useless and to get out of his way. =‘[However after noticing how bad it was getting, and how crowded just the Promenade alone was becoming… By seeing how the customers began parking on any piece of grass that they found. FatTinkerbell kind of felt relieved that Robocop had put her there. Now it really didn’t matter off he did it to dismiss her or to help her. This was like a gift to her.Soon FatTinkerbell found none other than SnoWhite sat at the Help Center desk at the Promenade. FatTinkerbell asks SnoWhite if she’s ready for Black Friday and SnoWhite says she is. LOL They both chat a little bit, and SnoWhite tells FatTinkerbell that a while ago she also had painted her hair red, and SnoWhite showed FatTinkerbell a picture of when she had red hair, then she also showed FatTink her kids and husband.This is when FatTinkerbell felt bad about the idea of pushing or convincing SnoWhite to go for Robocop. SnoWhite had kids and a Husband. She’s married. Have y’all any idea how hard it is for a woman to get married nowadays?But regardless of FatTinkerbell’s ideas or plans or actions. SnoWhite is a grown woman. She’s an adult. She’s even older than FatTinkerbell by three years. FatTinkerbell is 21 and SnoWhite is 24. SnoWhite more than FatTinkerbell must be very experienced with heartbreaks boyfriends, exes, and such. To be married at 24 is very lucky for a woman. SnoWhite herself must’ve known how difficult and frustrating it was to get a man to put a ring on her. If she was to choose to cheat on her husband, she must be very aware of the risk of losing that marriage and that man. ALL BY HERSELF.At the End of The Day; FatTink is 21, Snow is 24. She should know better. FatTinkerbell is not about to go in and Babysit and correct SnoWhite and advise her not to cheat. If she wants some Robocop D—k. Let her get herself some Robocop D—k!!SnoWhite maybe young, but she’s no mindless thoughtless child. She’s a mother of two at 24. After FatTinkerbell saw SnoWhite in there, and they chatted, the BALL-OF-B!TCHES aka “crowds” came in to ask SnoWhite all kinds of questions and therefore their little meeting was over.The day got darker and darker.The rest of Black Friday 2019, got crazier and crazier. FatTinkerbell saw many coworkers that weren’t from her shift walking around. So basically there was now morning employees and overnight employees that were working that same shift of FatTinkerbell. Soldiers that Robocop doesn’t normally manage. There was also King walking alongside the owners of the Entire Maze, walking around and around. FatTinkerbell was posted at the Promenade for what felt like the longest time. Robocop must’ve had her posted there for 4 hours Flat. FatTinkerbell this time had to walk her way back into the Maze due to how insanely crowded it had become even with traffic. Crowded with vehicles, with tons of people walking the street. Crowded with customers trying to find parking. It was unsightly and unbelievable. Indescribable. A lot of people had taken their breaks already. And the sun had finally entirely disappeared. Robocop then finally tells FatTinkerbell that she can take her break. And so after walking almost 10,000 steps from her 4 hours at the Promenade FatTink gives a sigh of relief. FatTinkerbell walks all the way to the office and she finds that there’s no Soldier’s Vehicle around and no Supervisor in sight. Everyone was somewhere, simply doing something within the piles of humans. The only person in the tiny office was an Afro American woman who works the morning. She was so deep into her phone and ignoring anything outside her phone. FatTinkerbell just sat there on her favorite chair near the door, of which we talked about before, with her feet aching, while she could until she had to jump back into hell.FatTinkerbell wasn’t about to eat anything, she’s trying to loose weight and that day she was fasting. And even if she was practicing OMAD she wouldn’t dare eat in that office for Robocop to look at her. To look at her Beluga Whale self-ass when she eats.Suddenly, Robocop himself shows up out of nowhere, bursts into the office. He searches for something within the closets and lockers. And finally he finds two “traffic wands”. He then says out-loud that he’s gonna go help ChinaBoy because he’s out there all alone moving traffic. He had an adorable smile on his face, it appeared like if he was enjoying Black Friday unlike anyone else. Although it wasn’t known who exactly he was talking to. There was two women in the office, the fat one he never talks to and the one he’s known for two years who is practically one of his besties, the older Afro-Woman. However that Afro-Woman was glued to her phone and didn’t hear a word Robocop said.So who in the hell was he talking to? Both of them? Even though he’s never said a word to “FatTink?”. That was very confusing. And if his friend there is ignoring him, that’s rude AF.Then right before Robocop walks out with those two “traffic wands”. Robocop decided to do a little joke pretending that those are Light-Sabers from StarWars. So he starts sword-fighting the air all by himself with the “traffic wands “ making light-saber Sounds with his mouth. LOLLOLThat was honestly hilarious and unexpected. Robocop never before behaved in that funny, lighthearted, non-aggressive manner. But the funnier part was that the Afro-Woman coworker didn’t even look up to see him do it. Robocop then laughed at himself and left. FatTinkerbell wondered if he did that for her. Now that they were in better terms right before SnoWhite came. FatTinkerbell did of course laugh at his stupid little joke before he walked out.Later FatTinkerbell returned to work to Patroll inside the Maze. FatTinkerbell was so astounded at how much people there was. It was literally oceans of humans covering every area of the Labyrinth. You could hear millions of loud voices. You couldn’t even hear your own thoughts because of how full of people the Maze was. FatTinkerbell started to get annoyed. She was now dodging every fool that almost stepped on her or bumped into her, because of how short she is.Soon however and thankfully, Weedguy who now has taken over as Manager for the afternoon shift which is his usual shift; he tells FatTinkerbell to go to a bathroom at the complete other end of the Maze. Unfortunately FatTink didn’t hear the message very well and she thought that he told her to go to the bathrooms inside the Food-Hall. And to her surprise the Food-Hall was even more crowded than any other place FatTinkerbell has seen so far. This time it was difficult to move around. FatTinkerbell now couldn’t hear a single thing said on the Walkie-talkie between the managers and employees. It appeared as if every human inside the Food-Hall was talking and had something to say. Just unbelievable. Just unacceptable.FatTinkerbell somehow had made it to the restrooms in the Food-Hall. And she informed Weedguy that she made it there. Weedguy then responds to her telling her that she had to go to the restrooms at the other end of the Maze and block the female restroom. And so FatTinkerbell apologized and did as he said. FatTink then walks ALL THE WAY to the opposite end of the Maze far far away from the office, and she blocks the female restrooms there. Later the HouseKeeping guys went into the female restrooms now that they were empty to fix the problem. Unfortunately there had still been a girl in the bathroom. And that’s when an older Spanish woman showed up and she says; “it’s ok she’s my daughters friend, they’re both inside, because she’s having a nose-bleed”.So FatTinkerbell at that point just didn’t do anything, she gave up. She would’ve gone inside to get the girl out, but since the adult mother or caretaker is standing there with FatTinkerbell, and the mother saw those tall-a$$ men go in… FatTink didn’t worry too much. FatTinkerbell thought, shouldn’t the mother go in and check on the girl, on her daughter that’s also in there..? Just in case? Now that there’s three men in there ?SMH After maybe 8 minutes, of FatTinkerbell stopping any woman from entering the restroom, and telling them to go elsewhere; through a secret door… and unknown entrance to FatTinkerbell… an entrance that is right next to those restrooms.. a guy enters the hall. And the guy is none other…. Than the one and only ROBOCOP HIMSELF.FatTinkerbell was just simply in SHOCK. Robocop literally knew all the cracks and crevices and secret doors of the entire Maze. He literally now teleported right next to FatTinkerbell.This is kind-of what that looked like…,He was wearing his Motorbike outfit; which meant he got on his Manager motorcycle and motorcycled his way to the complete other end of the entire Busy Maze, just to find FatTinkerbell. Now, truly FatTinkerbell was in complete and utter disbelief. She truly now wondered if Robocop actually had a thing for her. If he realistically had a thing for her, or was interested in her in some way somehow.FatTink thought; Why in the world did this guy go to the complete other end of the Labyrinth, a busy a$$ Labyrinth , on a Busy A$$ Black Friday. Through all the Ball of Humanity, and loads of Crowds. Risking his life with his motorbike or his scooter, just to get to that secret door and find FatTinkerbell where he knew she’d be.This time he was literally following her, on Black Friday of all days!! FatTinkerbell at this point didn’t know if it was all in her head because of how much she liked him. Specially since her sister would always tell her that everything she experiences with Robocop is all in her head. And so she’d always try to dismiss it. But NO.This time Robocop had gone to find her exactly were Weedguy told her to go, and he was right in front of her. And she was seeing him with her own eyes.He stood there silently for no reason, and FatTinkerbell felt awkward and more than anything overwhelmed. And soon she just said to him that those HouseKeeping men already went inside. Just to inform him and to not keep it awkward. And Robocop just said “ok good”. And then FatTinkerbell tells Robocop about the nose-bleed girl, and how those men went in there anyway. And Robocop makes a worried expression and he repeated “They went in there anyway??” And FatTink reassured him that; “Yes, they went in there anyway”. She communicated with him in the most bored attitude she could pull off. She displayed to him pure disinterest.So he then tells her to keep him updated, and he leaves. He left through the same mystery secret door. FatTinkerbell was so confused and surprised. This could likely mean that he likes her or that he’d want to be friends with her. But even if FatTinkerbell would’ve wanted to just be friends with him, her insane attraction to him wouldn’t let her. How the hell is she supposed to talk to him when he is on a pedestal and he’s everything she’d ever want, live and in person?How the absolute hell are you supposed to talk to, get to know, and befriend someone; who you find to be completely out of your league? Completely out of your league at all…? This man looked like a celebrity. And I mean a more masculine celebrity. Think “THE ROCK” or “VIN DIESEL” type, but with an immature boy-ish Brad-Pitt face. It makes sense as to why his ego and his confidence were beyond the clouds.FatTinkerbell couldn’t do it without blushing and stuttering and loosing her composure entirely. How GreenEyedSnake or any of the other 56 women he’s been screwing do it, is a complete mystery. FatTinkerbell couldn’t even spit out a word. How is she gonna be able to remove her panties for him when the time comes. How, if ever at all?This made FatTinkerbell so depressed. But then she thought. “Well if he’s such a BAD-BOY. If he’s the ultimate LADIES-MAN, If he’s the ALPHA MALE, if he’s the WOMANIZER of the entire Maze.. why isn’t he saying anything to me instead?”“I had to speak up and say something, anything at all, with my insane sexual attraction to him, even if it was just about work”“Why the hell can’t he do it?”“He’s the man!!“He’s the Alpha!!”“I’m just so confused!!”And then she thought…“Or.. is Robocop waiting for me to confess how I feel about him instead?”“Is he waiting for me to ask him out or compliment him?”“Is he waiting for me to get on my knee and propose to him?”“I’m guessing that this is what most girls have been doing to him”FatTinkerbell had to wake herself up on her own again. She reminded herself that if a man truly is interested in you or absolutely enthralled by you; he’s gonna do anything in his power to create a conversation or have a conversation. This Robocop guy was probably just checking on her and on everyone else.Maybe it really was all In FatTinkerbells imagination. Robocop liking her back was probably all in her mind like her sister says. Specially when you don’t speak with him, you can’t know for sure. This will always stay as an illusion or a dream as long as she doesn’t attempt to at the very least interact about the most boring thing with this ALPHA MAN. FatTinkerbell kept thinking that this guy would also toss a football straight at her face as a rejection if she told him how she felt. It was that 5th grade trauma coming back to haunt her.Moving on; as FatTinkerbellwas was stood there guarding that entrance of the female restrooms and redirecting the female customers to other bathrooms, the mom of those two girls , she goes and stands next to FatTinkerbell while she waits for the two girls, and she starts a conversation with FatTinkerbell about MOUNT DORA, and how there’s a light-show at MOUNT DORA and how she’s excited about it. FatTinkerbell not to be rude mother-f-er … she goes along with the conversation and agrees and talks about the Holidays and acts interested about MOUNT DORA. LOLSoon, unbelievably, and unbeknownst to everyone.. Robocop once again shows up entering through the same secret door. ,And he once again just stood there. QUIET. It’s like one of the sayings of “silence never betrayed me”. FatTinkerbell didn’t even know what to do at that moment. She didn’t know what to think. This time it actually felt like he was just focusing on her. It was Black Friday and the entire whole MAZE was so full and so crowded. Why The Biggest F-K BOY of the whole entire, full blown MAZE. Known by everyone in every store. Popularity of a celebrity. Kings and Queens praising him.. why he’s choosing to go out of his way in the busiest day of the entire year, to be around and near FatTink who still happens to be overweight, is incomprehensible.As you can see from the illustration, Robocop truly was short, he was probably 5'7 or 5'5. But being short was his ONLY FLAW. He had everything else. Every girl still wanted him. Every girl still slept with him. He right now, had two girls who were crazy for him Snow and Tink. That’s not nothing. And those are the only 2 young women in their 20’s inside that Soldier Job. Don’t make me remind you of GreenEyedSnake and some of the other names of his exes. IN THE MAZE ALONE.So when guys say that women care about height, they do but to an extent, and depending on wether she’s short or not as well. FatTink, SnoW, GreenEyed. They were all shorter than Robocop.But back to the story, Robocop stood there for a couple seconds all silent and smiling for no reason. And FatTinkerbell just stared at his BAD-BOYNESS. She was entirely brainwashed and hypnotized by his appearance as a whole. ,Those large veiny hands and long manly fingers, no one has. That super deep manly voice, no one has. That BradPitt-Like Face, no one has. New Yorker Boston Accent? + Deep Voice? Every man surrounding him begun to look like a figureless shadow. Meeting and Knowing Robocop, felt like finding a piece of gold amongst the dirt.And not only that, he is Latino. Which is FatTinkerbell’s preference.FatTinkerbell felt too overwhelmed with her zero experience in dating and her Virgin body. Was she really about to have her first experience with Robocop? She’d wonder.Was she about to give her first experience to him?Before it got too awkward because neither FatTink nor Robocop were saying anything to eachother, FatTinkerbell tells Robocop that the nose-bleed girl still hasn’t came out. And Robocop goes; “Oh she hasn’t come out yet?”And as they were now talking, the girl with the nose-bleed and her friend literally came out of the bathroom. The girl had a piece of toilet paper in her nose. FatTinkerbell felt so bad. She was stood in front of Robocop, both girls seemed to be around 13-15. Robocop then asks the girl if she needs medical attention and how she feels. And the girl simply told him that No, she doesn’t need any medical attention and that she’ll be fine. And then Robocop just tolf FatTinkerbell “Good Job” and he left.FatTinkerbell was so confused still as to why Robocop was trying to help FatTinkerbell around? Or why it seemed he was focusing on her for the rest of Weedguy’s shift? How come he wasn’t focusing on her during the morning hours, or the first 6 hours that he dumped her at the garage and at the promenade. At this point WHO KNOWS what Robocop’s intentions were. Being in his presence made FatTinkerbell feel all warm and giddy inside.After a while the men finished fixing the pipes and FatTinkerbell returned to walk the Maze. She found Weedguy and they both conversed about how crazy Black Friday is for a while next to a hall we’re the crowds wouldn’t get to them. Suddenly Robocop shows up with his scooter and he finds Weedguy and FatTinkerbell talking, just like FatTinkerbell wanted. TEE-HEE!Robocop tells them both that he saw King walking around with the Owners. Basically telling them that they shouldn’t stay there talking. Robocop then leaves and moves along. And so Weedguy says he agrees with Robocop and so they part ways.Later on FatTinkerbell was sent to drive for the next 3 hours. It was so much traffic that she never would’ve thought how frustrating it would feel to drive around in such busy non-moving traffic. As the night moved more and more. FatTinkerbell had stopped an altercation between customers over a parking spot. She continues her patrol and this is when a customer goes over to FatTinkerbell and he informed her that a man with a stripped shirt is acting strange and that he seems to be trying to break into cars. The customer even had taken a picture of the culprit.FatTinkerbell of course then informed Weedguy through the Walkie-talkie where everyone could hear, about the situation. FatTinkerbell wanted the Weedguy to come over and help her for Robocop to see how Weedguy his friend now gets along with her. Being how busy it was Weedguy asked the Police who were also listening to the team’s walkie-talkies and everything that took place. After a while FatTinkerbell walked around the parking lots now that it was difficult to drive around, searching for the culprit. An older male coworker showed up next to FatTinkerbell and he said he’d help her find him now that he’s there.And after a while of helping her, and also a police officer now driving the area for the same reason. The coworker literally finds the culprit hiding in a shadowy area behind a car. This is when FatTinkerbell tells the police officer where he is, and the officer flashed their lights at him, and they end up taking his information and ID and such. But ultimately the police officer said that the man was harmless. FatTinkerbell felt so stupid afterwards. At that point FatTinkerbell wanted to do nothing, just hide somewhere and do nothing. It felt as if though she was doing too much. Just because she wanted Weedguy’s attention to shove it on Robocops face. She was starting to look like a show-off nuisance all by herself. For the next 3 hours. She calmed herself down. She simply drove slowly and minded her own business. Later, Weedguy calls FatTink through the Walkie-talkie telling her to jumpstart a customer’s car at a specific location, and so FatTinkerbell drives in that direction. When she was getting close to where the customer might be, FatTinkerbell literally sees the NightWitch who is a OverNight Supervisor, she’s an older woman whom I’ve mentioned in other stories. She sees the NightWitch walking alongside Robocop by foot on the Parking Lot. Literally the Parking Lot that FatTinkerbell was Patrolling looking for the customer. Robocop raised his hand at her, signaling her to go over to him, and so she does. He tells her to roll down the window and he advised her to where the jumpstart customers are. Again the Robocop was somewhere that she is at. He was once again following her. However it could all be a coincidence. Maybe Robocop just simply happen to be around were FatTinkerbell was at during Weedguy’s afternoon shift on Black Friday. Or maybe he actually was interested in her, but why wasn’t he confessing his feelings for her?And also, why is he interested in her when he’s got SnoWhite there for him to talk to. When SnoWhite is more than interested in him. Did she not give it to him? Has he not gotten ass from her? Has she not shown him interest? Or is he truly trying to deal with two women at once, now that he’s single. Two women at once from his own job. Basically the two youngest women he’s had to be supervisor of. Before he sent SnoWhite to work at the Help Center.FatTinkerbell finds the customer and as soon as she finds them, Robocop has somehow managed to appear were she is with the NightWitch and he says to her that he’ll take over and help her do the jumpstart and for her to simply translate in Spanish to those customers to sign the paperwork. And so she does, while Robocop takes care of the Jumpstart. It was the cutest, sweetest, most adorable thing that FatTinkerbell’s ever experienced.Her crush Robocop was there next to her helping her out, in the middle of Black Friday for no reason.After he wrote her up in the past and snitched on her. And talked smack about her to Weedguy, and was happy that his GreenEyedSnake slut got her into Trouble. Was happy that she herself got into trouble on her own by recording that one video that one other time.FatTinkerbell was flattered that Robocop was literally helping her. But more than anything she wanted for this apparent evil-guy to apologize to her. To say; “hey I’m sorry I behaved this way towards you at the start”. “I’m sorry I made you feel that way”. Any sort of apology would’ve done it. If he truly liked her, and was interested, he would’ve been aware of his past actions towards her. He not long ago had written her up with the help of Prince, because Prince didn’t know any better. He was basically bossing Prince around because Prince was new. Robocop took advantage that she was working under him for those 3 days.Looking back on it; if FatTinkerbell was more mature in her thinking, and wiser. She wouldn’t have gone to complain to her besties so that they could tell him something about it. Looking back on it now, her best option would have been to quit or to transfer someplace else. But she didn’t want to leave Robocop’s side because she was under his pure spell.After Robocop was done Jump-Starting their van. And FatTinkerbell was done making those men sign the paperwork. Robocop came up to FatTinkerbell and asked her if she wanted to back-out he vehicle, since he had parked it weird to Jumpstart the Van. And FatTinkerbell definitely stood her ground and she smiled and said “YOU DID THAT!”. And Robocop made the cutest expression ever and says; “AWW MAN!” And FatTinkerbell giggled. FatTinkerbell then stands next to the evil NightWitch who all the overnight employees hate. Robocop had stuck out his foot from the vehicle with the door open, as he backed it out of that place he put it at. FatTinkerbell thought that was wild and crazy and reckless. But it impressed her how reckless and badass this guy is!!😮WHO DOES THAT!!FatTinkerbell then immediately in that moment felt a “DÉJÀ VU”, a feeling that she’s been there before and that this has happened before. That one unsettling feeling that you’ve already experienced this part of the story, of your life.As Robocop was there reversing the vehicle, with his foot out the door, FatTinkerbell was feeling that “DÉJÀ VU”. Like if she was meant to be there and see that and experience that.So then, FatTinkerbell turns to look at NitchWitch who is right next to her on her left hand side. And FatTinkerbell giggles, and jokingly says “Has this happened before?” But NightWitch being the super serious, evil Supervisor that she is.. she doesn’t respond or even look at FatTinkerbell. But regardless FatTinkerbell still laughed it off.Then FatTinkerbell goes over to Robocop who is in the car, and she thanked him for doing the jumpstart for her. Then they all part ways and FatTink just simply returns to her patrol.She had one more hour left before she had to once more get on her feet and walk. Since she was doing overtime to be alongside Robocop. This day FatTinkerbell had pushed her limits on regards to exercise. She was put to work 16 hours on this day. For the money, but in reality TO BE WITH ROBOCOP. ,She had done an astounding 41,500 STEPS this day. From 8AM in the morning to what now was 10PM at night. That is 18 Miles that she had walked in this job! All, just to be around and look at Robocop. She ultimately put herself through that torture to be with Robocop.As the night moved along, and it was still so busy, FatTinkerbell found it difficult to get through to return to the office to switch. It seemed more customers had left home by this time. But it was still crowded regardless. Maybe it just wasn’t COMPLETELY INFESTED with humans any longer. But it looked like a WEEKEND, when it gets very crowded.When FatTinkerbell finally made it to the office. She was writing the vehicle report like she usually does before getting off and shutting off the car. When suddenly, she hears someone talking loud, like if they’re angry. When FatTink turns to look, she looks to her left and she finds CaptainGirl on her phone walking fast with her backpack on. It was very obvious that she was leaving. That she clocked off to go home. But she was talking so loud and with such an attitude that FatTinkerbell did not recognize. FatTinkerbell heard her mention the name “Weedguy” out loud as she was walking away. FatTinkerbell felt so offended that she didn’t even bother to say goodbye to her friend FatTinkerbell there. She just walked away, and that’s was it. But she probably didn’t even notice FatTinkerbell there because of how in a rush she was to leave.FatTinkerbell thought; “Oh My God, something must’ve gone wrong”. “ I can already tell that something happened to CaptainGirl in there”. FatTinkerbell right now could only guess. FatTink would have to give CaptainGirl a phone call, after atleast 30 minutes to find out, as she’s still probably using her phone.FatTinkerbell’s mind started thinking about what could possibly have happened to rattle her like that. Because CaptainGirl isn’t the type who picks fights, she tries to smile and be funny as much as she can. But when she’s rattled or messed with, she can go full blown POSSESSED. That’s why FatTinkerbell liked her a lot too. Cause CaptainGirl was a lot like a weapon. LOLSo then FatTinkerbell gets off the car. She enters the office to return the car key, and turn in the Vehicle report. And guess what she finds in there. She finds Robocop sat at the King’s desk, and NightWitch near him sat on a chair. Both of them were entirely silent. Who knows if they must’ve been talking before she entered. WHO CARES. But their faces. LOLNightWitch looked all angered.And Robocop wouldn’t look anywhere. Robocop was looking downwards in disappointment, and he had his fingers covering his mouth, like if he were thinking.LOLBoth of them looked kinda, sorta, guilty. Or like something had happened to them. Or like if they DID SOMETHING. Or like if there had been a fight, or argument.LOLFatTinkerbell felt their weird energy, so she put away what she needed to put away, she made a weirded out expression. And quickly walked out, and left them alone to talk it out.LOL.BUT OH, MY, GOODNESS, GRACIOUS.What, the absolute, fuck, on earth, HAPPENED IN THIS TINY PATHETIC OFFICE?!!! FatTinkerbell NEEDED TO KNOW. SHE NEEDED TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS OFFICE TO ROBOCOP HER BIGGEST CRUSH ON EARTH, TO THE NIGHTWITCH, TO CAPTAINGIRL, TO WEEDGUY who CaptainGirl mentioned.FatTinkerbell was beyonddd CURIOUS!!!!So then FatTink just goes back inside the Maze to walk around and patrol on her last two hours. She waited those 30 minutes, and she also sorta searched for Weedguy to see if he spills any TEA himself. But it was unlikely. Weedguy was very reserved and careful with drama and tea and such. He didn’t really enjoy being involved or talking about tea. You really would have to give him the idea to get him to spill it.After 10 minutes or so. FatTinkerbell couldn’t wait anymore. She hid in an empty bathroom hall that she knew nobody would be in behind some soda machines. She first sends a text to CaptainGirl telling her; “Hey, are you ok? Why did you leave so fast?” Because normally, CaptainGirl is so friendly and goofy that she usually sticks around after the clock, talking to her employee friends and Weedguy and Robocop and FatTinkerbell and others as well. She was basically cool with literally everyone in there. Even employees who are irrelevant to any of these stories.Also! She was friends with the Managers and Tenants of the Most Luxury Shops in there. That was basically her actual job. Her job as Captain was to go around asking the Tentants if they needed anything from the Soldiers, and she would have to make reports of everything that those Tentants wanted. A weekly review of the Luxury Shops.So regardless, what FatTinkerbell was texting CaptainGirl was fine.After a while of waiting, almost 5 minutes if not more, and CaptainGirl not replying at all.FatTinkerbell finally decided to just give her a call. It was taking a while for her to answer, however she did pick up. When she picked up CaptainGirl seemed to be infuriated and she was talking smack about someone. It appeared that she was telling the story to her boyfriend in the car.And FatTinkerbell goes “Are you ok, you left really fast, I was worried something happened to you?”And CaptainGirl just couldn’t hold it in, and she goes. “Okay I’m gonna tell you, but bitch I swear to God, don’t tell no one, or I’ll find you”. And she was saying this in a pissed tone. FatTinkerbell felt worried at what she had to say. But she calmly responded “I would never, you know me”. And CaptainGirl trusted her as she’s told her too much already ANYWAY. So HERE, is where the story takes a whole new turn.PART 2 COMING VERY SOON, HAPPY HOLIDAYS 🎄🎄🎄, #awareness #barbie #bully #bullying #crush #deardiary #diary #fatgirl #harassment #harrypotter #job #mystory #nonfiction #obesity #reallife #robocop #security #stalker #storytime #tinkerbell #truestory #uglygirl #writeup #mallcop #obesegirl #fatshaming #bullyingvictim #stalkerstory #prettyprivilege #securityjob #bully #obesity #reallife #robocop #security #stalker #storytime #tinkerbell #truestory #uglygirl #writeup #mallcop #stalkerstory #prettyprivilege #securityjob #awareness #bullying #fatgirl #harrypotter #fatshaming #barbie #crush #deardiary #diary #harassment #job #mystory #nonfiction #obesegirl #bullyingvictim #hotboss #workplacebullying #hotmanager #copmall
FatTinkerbell Part 17To read the previous story Click Here: SNOW WHITE To find the FatTinkerBell Series Click Here: FAT TINKERBELL RECAP: On the previous story ( SNOW WHITE )...We talked about how FatTinkerbell and CaptainGirl got to learn more and more about the new girl SnoWhite. That apparently SnoWhite was expressing more and more of her interest in Robocop without a care in the world. Without shame. That they found out a lot about her ever since. That she has tattoos all over her hands just like Robocop. That she has 2 kids just like Robocop. That she’s from NewYork just like Robocop. That she was Hispanic without knowing a word of Spanish. That she came from another Maze were she was causing so much drama, and being a top level gossip-girl. That she was short just like Robocop and FatTinkerbell as well. And that both BossBattle and Robocop were telling her to not talk to CaptainGirl. And how FatTinkerbell might’ve suspected why that is., THE NEW GIRL LEAVESIt was still Mid-November, after all of the things they already knew of SnoWhite. FatTinkerbell had seen SnoWhite 4 or 6 different times and worked twice with her ever since. CaptainGirl got a taste of who BossBattle and Robocop really are. She had been cool with them, but after FatTinkerbell got written up by Robocop himself, and how Robocop was telling the new girl not to talk with her … CaptainGirl already started getting an idea or a hint of the type of people those two were.A couple days went by and soon everyone heard how the the new girl was now leaving. She had not been with this job but 4 weeks between October and November. And now she was quitting. BUT… BUT… Here’s the catch. She wasn’t exactly “quitting”. She wasn’t exactly “leaving”. What this SnoWhite girl had chose to do, was nothing more of “suspicious”. She had decided to quit the Knight Job, with Robocop, with CaptainGirl, with FatTinkerbell and everyone else… and instead decided to work someplace else inside that same Maze. And it was later discovered that basically SnoWhite had asked Prince to have her work at none other than the “HELP CENTER”!!The f—ing “HELP CENTER”!!The same “HELP CENTER” where all the prettiest Barbies were located at. The same HELP CENTER that had the BlindBarbie, the same HELP CENTER were Mrs.Help was at, the older lady that told FatTinkerbell all of Robocop’s tea way back before CaptainGirl even got there, in the age of HarryPotter.Un-Freaking-Believable , the cute, short, chubby, little SnoWhite had decided to go work at the one and only HELP CENTER??? WHATT !!? Not having a single clue of the stuff that had gone down between Robocop and many of the Snakes that worked in there.Mindlessly walking into a hell-hole filled with std-ridden snakes.FatTinkerbell was speechless having found this out about SnoWhite. FatTinkerbell of course felt a little bad for SnoWhite, and the possible weird experiences she might have in there. But seeing how she liked Robocop and how Robocop might actually like her back. FatTinkerbell wasn’t about to warn SnoWhite or get involved in any way shape or form. FatTinkerbell was gonna allow SnoWhite to self-destruct. However, after hearing this new information of course.. FatTinkerbell again came to her own speculations of why SnoWhite might have transferred to a job that in reality didn’t pay as much as this KNIGHT-JOB FatTinkerbell was in. SnoWhite was fine in a job like this one. It makes no sense as to why this young lady would choose to quit and move to a job that would pay less and have less privilege and not as many benefits as the Knight-Soldier Job, with Robocop as her main Boss. Specially her. More than FatTinkerbell, SnoWhite had more privilege in that sense since she had full and complete access to Robocop, day in and day out.FatTinkerbell just simply knew that such action made no sense whatsoever. FatTinkerbell started thinking and speculating. FatTinkerbell knew that it’s more than likely that it had something to do with the one and only Brad Pitt in the entire Maze. It was an 88% - 90% chance that it definitely had something to do with the Boxer-Looking , Brad Pitt - Looking young guy of the entire whole Maze. Of the entire Labyrinth. The only guy with the face of Brad Pitt and the body of a Boxer.CaptaiGirl then went over to FatTinkerbell to spill some Manager-Tea. She basically told FatTinkerbell that SnoWhite had made a written-statement to be able to Quit. Or that SnoWhite wrote in the Resignation Letter that BossBattle was getting in her way, and that she didn’t feel comfortable working with BossBattle any longer. Or that BossBattle was being “weird” with her. As she put it. That she doesn’t want to work with him any longer. So that’s why she got with Prince, the one who helped her move from her previous Maze Soldier Job, and come over to this one in the first place. So that Prince himself would help move her to the HELP CENTER with the rest of the Snakes at this same Maze.FatTinkerbell then thought; “Why the Help Center” of all places and of all possible jobs out there? HUH?? ,It’s not like this whole situation is giving FatTinkerbell, some GreenEyedSnake vibes.It’s not like this entire thing is looking like Robocop seeks to replace GreenEyedSnake with none other than SnoWhite. It’s definitely not looking like Robocop wants to relive , re-experience the GreenEyedSnake adventure….Just saying….FatTinkerbell pretty much had gotten a hint of what this was all about. However both CaptainGirl and FatTinkerbell didn’t actually know if SnoWhite and Robocop were friends, we’re cool with eachother, were talking and flirting. CaptainGirl only knew that Robocop had said that he thinks SnoWhite is hot. But anything outside of that wasn’t known. But back to the story; SnoWhite in the statement just said that she felt uncomfortable in this job because of the managers.FatTinkerbell then remembered how BossBattle had harassed her and had grabbed her hand without permission. How he had made some sort of weird plan at first to be able to grab FatTinkerbell’s tiny short fat little hand. And that’s when FatTinkerbell wondered if what SnoWhite was saying about BossBattle was true. It was more than likely that BossBattle himself was actually, realistically being all weird with SnoWhite. It was more than likely that BossBattle had actually been doing something like what he did to FatTinkerbell!FatTinkerbell then felt bad for SnoWhite and completely understood what SnoWhite meant by “BossBattle being weird with her”. Immediately FatTinkerbell felt furious. No woman should want to have to quit or move to another job because some old nasty man is trying to say nasty sh-T to her or trying to make passes at her, or trying to touch her.FatTinkerbell more than anyone understood that. Now that BossBattle had made unwanted, unexpected physical contact with FatTinkerbell twice! FatTinkerbell did tell two of her managers, both CaptainGirl and Weedguy, even DirtCoke when she was still around. However FatTinkerbell told them all to not say or do anything about it because FatTinkerbell didn’t want the drama, and the King who was still working there at the time still protected that gross old man. FatTinkerbell promised that if BossBattle tried anything else that FatTinkerbell will scream it all for the world to hear. LOLEven if FatTinkerbell would get fired from that Dead-End job and all the bot-ass people in that job hated her for saying it.Regardless, FatTinkerbell completely now understood where SnoWhite was coming from, and what SnoWhite was talking about in that Email, in that Letter. Outside of all of this. Still. Why in the hell was SnoWhite switching to a job STILL IN THE MAZE, where she still can be in direct contact with BossBattle !!anyway!!…… ??This is what was most suspicious of all. SnoWhite was now gonna work in a job were she will still be in direct contact with both BossBattle and Robocop regardless. Because at the HELP CENTER, the Soldiers the Knights will go to escort the female employees of the HELP CENTER when they needed to go somewhere or were leaving and getting off the clock to go home. This is also something FatTinkerbell had to do, and also her Soldier coworkers.The Managers could do this as well if they felt like it, or if they wanted to be around those pretty young things and escort them. So the HELP CENTER girls would call over The walkie-talkies and ask for an escort. And the Supervisor could chose to say “IM COMING” himself, and so the employee wouldn’t have to do it anymore. There’s no doubt that Robocop had escorted the Pretty young things himself. There was a secret locker-room that had the schedules of the Barbies written in there. It had lockers for the Barbies to put their things in. One of the lockers even had GreenEyedSnake’s name written on it and blurred out, since she was long gone now.In this room the regular Soldier had to stand, locked in there and wait for the Help Center girl to count all the money and count all the day’s earnings. And there is absolutely no doubt that it’s more than likely that Robocop went in this Room with GreenEyedSnake and he had his way with her in there. That both of them FU—KED in there. Unbeknownst to everyone.But it could be possible that all the other Barbies knew of this. Maybe, just Maybe.All those other pretty Barbies were besties with GreenEyedSnake. They knew what GreenEyedSnake and Robocop had done.However! If anything it’s probable that Robocop also did this with many of the other Barbies in there as well. Unknown to everyone else. Unknown to GreenEyedSnake herself. That includes the taller Barbie with the bangs, that CaptainGirl herself said that Robocop literally told her that he had messed around with her too, after GreenEyedSnake left.In that money locker room, Robocop must’ve been BUSTING ALL KINDS OF NUTZ. Also, it was said that GreenEyedSnake had actually left that job because someone had caught her stealing money. That GreenEyedSnake was stealing some of the earnings of that Help Center. Since at the Help Center they sold coupons.Just like SnoWhite, GreenEyedSnake started to sound like if she were TRASH too.It started to really, really look like if people like SnoWhite, Robocop and GreenEyedSnake were all pure white TRASH.And honestly, GreenEyedSnake looked like the most modest, privileged white girl, than anyone at all. GreenEyedSnake looked a lot like Mary Jane from SpiderMan. The ginger Mary Jane, from the SpiderMan Movies. The one that had no lips, and weird teeth. Kristen Dunst. Of course, if Kristen Dunst had dark drown hair. It seems women like Kristen Dunst were meant to fool around with men like Brad Pitt.LOL LOL LOL(….)But it was sad that GreenEyedSnake looking like a Privileged, Pretty, White American B—CH. Was messing around with a Spanish trash bag like Robocop and stealing money from her own job.But back to the story. Yes it made absolutely no sense at all, why SnoWhite was switching to a job were she still can be in contact with BossBattle and Robocop ANYWAY. Any day, BossBattle can go to relieve or escort SnoWhite REGARDLESS. And the funny thing is, that no one thought of this. Prince didn’t realize any of this. CaptainGirl too didn’t realize this, or question it. They all just said. “Yeah let’s just move her to another job to keep away from that man that makes her feel uncomfortable” “Even though that man can just walk around the Maze and see her at the Help Center. He can also go over to her in person at the Help Center and talk with her if he wants to.” “Also, if SnoWhite is to go home and request an escort to turn the money in, BossBattle could just say that he wants to do the escort himself and be locked in that room alone with SnoWhite”“SUREEE”LOL , LOL , LOLIt’s also weird that FatTinkerbell in her mind alone is coming up with these conclusions all alone by herself. And no one else is.If someone is, they’re not doing anything about it or could care less. FatTinkerbell too, even though she realized all this immediately. She wasn’t gonna say anything to CaptainGirl or anyone at all. FatTinkerbell didn’t want to be a gossip-girl, or get into any trouble. Or get into drama, or start stories. She also wasn’t gonna cock-block Robocop, or cock-block SnoWhite.FatTinkerbell has ALREADY gone through hell with those demonic managers. The Robocop himself wrote her up for being late by 5 minutes. He snitched on her to HarryPotter in the very start to suck HarryPotter’s white skinny D—K.So FatTinkerbell, simply she was gonna sit back and watch the shit-show. Whilst eating her popcorn.FatTinkerbell in her mind, then came to another conclusion. To another supposition. To another assumption. FatTinkerbell knew that all this was weird and sketchy. SnoWhite had said that BossBattle was being weird with her. Obviously FatTinkerbell suspected that BossBattle had touched her or grabbed her hand too.But then FatTinkerbell wondered if Robocop had something to do with this as well. It was obvious to FatTinkerbell; that Robocop liked her and she too wanted him. It’s very likely that both of them had started to talk to eachother, unknown to everyone else.FatTinkerbell thought.Maybe, just maybe… Robocop and SnoWhite had already started flirting and talking about wanting eachother. But then Robocop told her that he cannot be with her if he’s her Supervisor or her direct Supervisor. That she would have to leave or quit for them to be together. That it would affect his position in that job. Or that both of them could be caught having a romance in there. That he had kids to take care of and can’t afford to be in any trouble. That she too has kids to provide for and she too can’t be in that type of position.So then Robocop tells SnoWhite that there’s an open position in the Help Center. That such job pays 2 dollars less, and is part-time, but that it’s a pretty stable job. And if she were to quit and work there instead; then and only then, can he start a romance with her or date her.And SnoWhite being as in love as she was and as hypnotized by this man as she was. Was gonna agree , and lose the Soldier Job that was full-time and payed better. To go please the Robocop so that she can surely now be finally able to date and mess around with such a catch like Robocop.Yes, BossBattle must’ve been acting weird with her, or touching her hand too, yes.But SnoWhite didn’t give a RATZ-AZZ about what BossBattle did or didn’t do. Her ultimate goal was Robocop. She was just as Hypnotized as FatTinkerbell was.So then SnoWhite did as Robocop told her. As Robocop requested. She sacrificed her pay, her earnings. And she used BossBattle as an excuse, to be able to work at none other than the Help Center of the Maze.And Robocop, being the Brad Pitt Hottie that he is. He wanted to re-live, re-experience, the adventure that he had with GreenEyedSnake. SnoWhite went into the Help Center not having a clue about the stories and romances that Robocop has had with GreenEyedSnake in the past. Many of the hottie snakes were still working in there. And many of those girls were better-looking and in better shape than SnoWhite.Robocop was literally sending that new girl into the mouth of the Beast. FatTinkerbell thought all of this up by herself. But again. FatTinkerbell didn’t want to get into anyone’s business. FatTinkerbell wasn’t gonna stop anyone from being with who they wanted to be with. She also wasn’t gonna go and warn anyone of anything. This was all also a supposition, an assumption. A wild guess. A theory.But this wild guess could be pretty accurate, knowing Robocop’s past, Robocop’s behavior, and type of Unstable, insatiable, impulsive young attractive guy that he is.In this conspiracy theory, if it turns out to be true and accurate. Robocop literally got a young dumb girl to sacrifice her job and her pay, her children’s pay, so that she could get some Robocop D-K. Can you imagine?This is something FatTinkerbell would never do. FatTinkerbell too was obsessed and insanely attracted to Robocop. When the hell else will FatTinkerbell have a chance to look at and be with a badass manly guy who looks like Brad Pitt , with large veiny hands, and the body of a Boxer… ?WHEN THE HELL ELSE??But IF this Hot-Stud. This Hot- Manly- Muscle- Boy .. went over to FatTinkerbell, and he told her. “ Hey I like you. I’m crazy for you. But you and I can’t be together. Because us being together is a bad idea since we’re working together. Since were working directly with eachother. I can’t put up with the drama that would come of that. I can’t afford to be in any of that trouble. I have kids, and I depend on my supervisor position. If our romance was to ever be discovered. That would be a bad look for me. That would make me look bad. So please, you go work someplace else. Go work somewhere else, so that I can F-K you. You’re just an employee. You don’t matter cause you’re just an employee, I’m a supervisor, you’re not. And if you cause any problem for me, I’ll write you up and try to get you removed. If you piss me of I’ll write you up. I’ll personally get you written up just like I did FatTinkerbell. My girlfriend broke up with me since I cheated, and I had to seek a throw-back to suck me off. And I decided to take my anger and frustrations from my bad behavior on FatTinkerbell. So please, yeah, go work in this other job that pays less, so that we can be in a romance, and so that I can have early free easy access to your body. And of course so that I can replace GreenEyedSnake with you. “You know what FatTinkerbell would do? Even if FatTinkerbell was looking like a 2/10, and knowing it. Since she was raised by an angry scary Father who had taught her how men are. FatTinkerbell would honestly feel offended by this idea. Even if Robocop put it in a victim way and didn’t word it like this.If he said it all nice and friendly. FatTinkerbell wouldn’t agree to receive LESS PAY for some trash F-BOY dick. He can keep his F-BOY dick to himself. I’ll find me another F-BOY if I really want to. I’ll find me SuperMan. I’ll find me a Thor. My children depend on me too. I depend on my own employee position too. You don’t want be with me and experience me because it’ll look bad for “YOUU”. Reject me! Do it!And if I choose not to agree to this, and stay in this job. If I choose to reject you. And because of that you’ll “write me up” with your 2 extra dollar position.. I’ll simply yell at the four winds and expose you and your fucked-up, screwed-up idea. I’ll tell all the managers and write all the emails. That is a promise.Sometimes you need to have some self-love and self-respect, even if that means rejecting that man that you most love and most desire. Even if you were to loose that man forever and ever til the end of your days. You expressed your desire for this man, and he’s telling you that he can only be with you, when you move to another job, because he’s more important than you. That’s a RED FLAG that this man is showing you. He’s not more important than anyone in that DEAD-END-JOB, he’s narcissistic. And if someone shows you narcissism after you showed them interest and attraction. Do you really REALLY want to continue dealing with them and showing them any sort of love ???FatTinkerbell started to realize this more and more, and she connected all the dots all alone. SnoWhite didn’t leave because of BossBattle, she left because of Robocop. BossBattle was weird and nasty and he would grab your hand, but honestly he was harmless. He was a short fat old man, who spoke shitty English. SnowWhite went to work at the Help Center and quit this job because of Robocop. The one and only Robocop. Robocop took advantage that SnoWhite didn’t know sh-T about him. SnoWhite had been there a month, she knew nothing of his past. And that makes Robocop a shitty person. FatTinkerbell felt so bad for SnoWhite. Deep deep down she knew that this wasn’t about BossBattle. FatTinkerbell after a while of continuing to hear how the new girl moved to the Help Center… she got sick of it. FatTinkerbell knew that this was messed up!! FatTinkerbell in reality saw a lot of herself in SnoWhite. Even though SnoWhite made her feel envious and jealous. Because SnoWhite was now stealing her future man.. LOL.Deep down FatTinkerbell indeed saw a lot of herself in SnoWhite. She was pale just like FatTinkerbell, she was chubbier just like FatTinkerbell, she was in her early 20’s just like FatTinkerbell.By that time FatTinkerbell had given up on the idea of obtaining Robocop herself. Or experiencing Robocop. If anything she was gonna support SnoWhite because then SnoWhite could tell her experiences to FatTinkerbell and so FatTinkerbell wouldn’t have to. And SnoWhite was better suited for Robocop anyway. It was obvious that they were a better Match.But it pissed FatTinkerbell off , how that short idiot was taking advantage of SnoWhite’s cluelessness and ignorance.If FatTinkerbell was also kissing Robocops a$$ like that, and getting on her knees for him. He’d ALSO take advantage! “” Yeah, go work somewhere else, so that I a can F-K you, so that I don’t have to put up with you, or deal with you. Even if you earn less money..” I can’t sacrifice my money, so go sacrifice yours”.The day of Black Friday was arriving. Black Friday for November 2019, was November 29. Everyone was getting ready for Black Friday. Regular minimum wage employees like FatTinkerbell were receiving more overtime hours. Prince would offer it to FatTinkerbell and many others. And FatTinkerbell since she wanted to be with Robocop and look at him, she’d accept. FatTinkerbell would accept any and every overtime that she got, just to be able to listen to and be able to be around Robocop.FatTinkerbell doesn’t usually work the mornings, but now that she was working overtimes just to be with Robocop. She one day saw SnoWhite walking towards her new job there in the Maze one morning, with her now Help Center uniform. This pissed FatTinkerbell off because Robocop was literally replacing his Help Center GreenEyedSnake Slut with now SnoWhite. FatTinkerbell then casually walks up to her as she had worked with her a couple times in her time with the Soldier Job. They both greet each-other. FatTinkerbell then says “You’re working with THEM now?” SnoWhite then says “Yeah cause I didn’t feel comfortable there, with BossBattle”.Then another coworker walked up them, an Afro Woman Soldier and she was also asking her questions as to why she now worked with the Help Center Hoes/ Snakes.SnoWhite as she was answering that woman she tells her that now she makes less money, and that it’s part time, but that it’s okay because it’s a serious stable job.SMH ***FACEPALM ***After a while, this coworker left SnoWhite and FatTinkerbell alone. And this is when FatTinkerbell got serious and she ask’s SnoWhite.“Did BossBattle also grab your hand?”And SnoWhite just casually answers; “If he did that, I would slap him”.This moment, FatTinkerbell was exposing her own experience to SnoWhite in a way. She just hoped that SnoWhite wouldn’t tell Robocop or anything like that. But it seemed that SnoWhite was more focused on getting herself some Robocop D-K.It seemed like FatTinkerbell’s speculations had been true now that SnoWhite was acting unbothered by the mention of BossBattle. She was transferring to the Help Center because Robocop wanted that. Not because of BossBattle or anything of that sort.. BossBattle being a creep was just an excuse. At the Help Center she can still see and be in full contact with BossBattle. Later on FatTinkerbell just wished SnoWhite good luck and they parted ways. SnoWhite was gonna need luck now that Robocop was throwing her into the mouth of the Beast with those Snakes. Now that Robocop was replacing GreenEyedSnake with SnoWhite. And SnoWhite was so attracted and so deluded in fact that she couldn’t see the utter trap he put her in.FatTinkerbell knew Robocop for longer. She knew stuff about him that she shouldn’t know, and only knew because everyone talked about him. FatTinkerbell was also insanely attracted to Robocop. He legit looked like some Boxer- Brad Pitt / Celebrity. But she wasn’t about to fulfill his wishes as he’s done NOTHING for her. He hasn’t even become a friend to her.“Why the hell would I sacrifice my pay and my full-time job for you, when I only know you for less than a Month!??”“ WHAT THE F—K!!”Now, there is a slight chance that Robocop wanted to move SnoWhite elsewhere because he also wanted to get to FatTinkerbell. He had started flirting with her before SnoWhite’s arrival to the Knight Job. And maybe Robocop wanted to deal with both of them and have both of them.Maybe he didn’t want them fighting over him, or getting Jealous by eachother. Or one of them being turned off by him Dealing with either girl. Which is pretty smart, considering you’re a Single Dad & a minimum-wage loser who wishes to not be serious with anyone or commit to anyone ever. Knowing that you “suck at relationships” , is unstable, is insatiable, and impulsive.The entire Maze now began playing Christmas tunes. Everywhere you went, you’d hear Romantic Christmas Music that would melt you. But this had started since the start of November. The Maze was also now very decorated with Christmas ornaments and lights everywhere. The Maze already looked Romantic at night regardless. But now they added the Christmas lights that it made it look 10x MORE ROMANTIC. So romantic with the Christmas music, the decorations, the people wearing their cold outfits. And Maze spraying the Christmas chocolate smell or cinnamon smell, for the BOT ZOMBIES HUMANS to buy shit.,

FatTinkerbell from time to time would find SnoWhite at the Promenade across the street, a Prominade that looked like Bonita Bay Prominade. Since the Knights would also have to go across the street to patrol there. And SnoWhite now working that job also was posted at the Help Center there too. When FatTinkerbell came to visit her, she would talk about how Robocops is telling her that “she’s a traitor for leaving them”. AKA Quitting the Job. FatTinkerbell since she wanted to be friends with SnoWhite would just laugh with her.,In that same Promenade that moment. she said that “Robocop was following her when she was a Soldier, and that she had asked him if he’s following her and that he said “it’s my job”. Just, exactly, literally as FatTinkerbell imagined he’d respond with. From the very start. From the very first stories. From the story of the Creepy Stalker. FatTinkerbell literally imagined that Robocop would come up with that type of Predictable type of answer. FatTinkerbell just rolled her eyes.SnoWhites behavior was like if she were flattered by that. Flattered by Robocop’s attention. Just like FatTinkerbell once was.This is when FatTinkerbell decided to tell SnoWhite the truth. FatTinkerbell gets close to SnoWhite, and she tells her as CaptainGirl says to her “Don’t tell no one I told you this”, “and I not supposed to tell you this but, Robocop had actually said that your hot, when you were new”. And SnoWhite smiled, and she said that he’s cute, and she raised her hand and showed her ring and she said “But I’m married”.Another time, FatTinkerbell was at the locker room escorting one of the Female Help Center Employees. FatTinkerbell was relieving BlindBarbie and some other girl. In that Locker Room, of which I mentioned previously. That same Help Center Locker Room… and SnoWhite was sat in there complaining about the shoes of that girly profesional uniform she now had to wear.And with Pure Pride, she was talking about how the other Help Center girls, had said that Robocop is her “BOO” because of how much he visits her at the help center. She says that the other girls are saying that she had Robocop wrapped around her finger.And in that room in that moment…. SnoWhite asked FatTinkerbell; “ why does Robocop seem to always be looking at her, and eyeing her”… and FatTinkerbell as upset as that made her feel, she had to accept the loss. FatTinkerbell just continued with her plan to push her towards Robocop, because there was no stopping two young adults who were attracted to eachother.FatTinkerbell then just answered; “Because He Has A Thing For You”. With a smile on her face.Deep Down; FatTinkerbell in her mind, remembered how she always wanted to find out if Robocop liked her. She specially would’ve wanted someone else to tell her, now that Robocop himself as much as he followed and as much as he would stare.. would not do it. FatTinkerbell was helping SnoWhite out. This is exactly what FatTinkerbell would’ve wanted. =‘[ And it never happened. So let at least SnoWhite, experience this.As soon as SnoWhite heard; “Because He Has A Thing For You”. SnoWhite looked at FatTinkerbell like if she had won the Lottery. SnoWhite then became so unbelievably Horny and Sexually Aroused in fact, that you could even see her nipples protruding. That moment, as SnoWhite was sat there giving FatTinkerbell that look.. she slightly spread her legs, and you could see her Camel-Toe clearly, her Camel-Toe started to swell, you could see the outline of her panties and now also her Genitals, and soon you could see her Clit sticking out. SnoWhite was also biting her bottom lip with a funny smile on her face.FatTinkerbell was astounded at what she was seeing. FatTinkerbell would’ve never imagined to ever see something like this.That woman just busted a NUT in front of FatTinkerbell, from just hearing “Robocop Has A Thing For You”.Who would’ve imagined. That’s never gonna leave FatTinkerbell’s head. But that was also the hottest thing FatTinkerbell’s ever seen. One thing is seeing XXX in a video or a movie. Rubbing one out to XXX on a movie. Another thing is, to see these things face to face, live & in Person.Immediately SnoWhite hid her cookies that were sticking out and slowly closed her legs. She had still the funny smile on her face and she turned to her phone to text whoever she was texting with.( 0.0 ) … :0:0:0😮😮😮That was the craziest, most shocking, most unbelievable thing that 21-yr-FatTinkerbell’s ever seen, in her life. “What the absolute hell did I just see with my own two eyes.”“How come none of those other B-CHES in that room saw that, I mean they were in fact busy and talking amongst eachother and ignoring our conversation, but still, how did they not see that???”That was low-key so hot. And FatTinkerbell is no Lesbo. But FatTinkerbell wondered if that’s the stuff that Robocop sees on the Daily. Does he see Female Genitalia of all sorts on the Daily???:0:0😮😮😮“ Is he gonna witness what I just saw from SnoWhite? Is he gonna see this live and in Person and get to Go Deep Inside of it? “FatTinkerbell started thinking how Robocop is truly a lucky guy. He gets AZZ and P-SY on the daily. He sees stuff like this very often. He gets to touch it and feel it. And women like SnoWhite spread those legs all the way open for him. FatTinkerbell hopes that if she reincarnates, she comes back as Robocop. LOL Truly it’s a mystery, what the mentality of a young, horny, sexual stud like Robocop is. Specially when all the women he wants want him as well. What’s the mentality of a guy who gets tons and tons of females.The mentality of a guy who has women throw themselves at him. Does he see inflated nipples and inflated Clits? Does he see Vaginal Labia? LOL Like , WTF has he seen exactly…?The last time FatTinkerbell had seen SnoWhite at the Help Center. SnoWhite was saying that an older lady coworker of the Soldiers who knew Robocop ever since he started working there, who’s been there5 years … that basically that old lady was saying to her; “That she’s the Princess of the Knights” when SnoWhite is as still there, and SnoWhite felt offended by it. and later when SnoWhite moved to the new job that the old lady said to her;“So you’re entertaining Robocop Huh?”.And FatTinkerbell casually just said that “Isn’t that old lady supposed to be nice?”And SnoWhite in a ghetto manner says;“No, she’s not nice at all.”” I don’t like how she’s talking about me”.And this is when FatTinkerbell chose to just avoid the Help Center all together for good. FatTinkerbell was tired of hearing how SnoWhite is winning over her precious Robocop. How she has Robocop wrapped around her finger. How she’s entertaining Robocop. FatTinkerbell was so lonely and single in fact, that this was starting to bother her.Get Robocop and shut the fuck up.You won, enjoy your prize. Marry Him. F-K Him. Bear his Babies. “I lost, you won”.And for a while FatTinkerbell never again visited the Help Center. She had asked her now Friend “Weedguy” to do the escorts instead of her.FatTinkerbell just decided to focus on loosing all the weight so that Maybe MAYBE sometime in the future.. she could have a chance with Robocop or someone like him. If ever at all. Cause most men aren’t like him. And she also just decided to have fun at work, and ride around on the scooters, while helping all the shoppers out and costumers out with what they needed.Distraction is the best way to hide and ignore your pain, your feelings, and emotions.FatTinkerbell chose to become a Workaholic on her own, to avoid feelings of depression, and feelings of sadness. Feelings of Jealousy. Of envy.The Day of Black Friday was getting closer and closer. FatTinkerbell had lost tons and tons of Weight. FatTinkerbell had no clue, if SnoWhite and Robocop had already started BONING or anything of that sort. Either way, Robocop is young and single, and can do as he pleases. #awareness #barbie #bully #bullying #crush #deardiary #diary #fatgirl #harassment #harrypotter #job #mystory #nonfiction #obesity #reallife #robocop #security #stalker #storytime #tinkerbell #truestory #uglygirl #writeup #mallcop #obesegirl #fatshaming #bullyingvictim #stalkerstory #prettyprivilege #securityjob #bully #obesity #reallife #robocop #security #stalker #storytime #tinkerbell #truestory #uglygirl #writeup #mallcop #stalkerstory #prettyprivilege #securityjob #awareness #bullying #fatgirl #harrypotter #fatshaming #barbie #crush #deardiary #diary #harassment #job #mystory #nonfiction #obesegirl #bullyingvictim #hotboss #workplacebullying #hotmanager #copmall
Fan Fiction
Coffee Klatch 19One early February morning, two ladies showed up outside a Wisconsin coffeehouse called "Brooke Brew." No one would've given these ladies a second thought. They appeared to be two ordinary, attractive women having a coffee together. The reality was neither woman was human. They're merely disguised as humans today.One was a redhead wearing a tasteful red suit under a crimson winter jacket. The other had cascading jet-black locks and wore a trendy aquamarine ruffled dress with knee-high leather boots.The two ladies calmly placed their order before finding a table. Then, after they sipped their caramel lattes, they began to talk. The redhead spoke first. "Well, for once, I'm not in the mood for misery. I'm, in reality, trying to kick my addiction.""That be marvelous if you did, Penelope. Since it's interfering with your position at the mental health clinic. I know the Therapist isn't happy you've been abusing it. Therefore, I hope the ten-step program and Addicts Anonymous will help you," the black-haired woman replied."Believe me, Desiree. I've worked hard to improve my therapy skills and combat my addiction. But I'm tired of making people miserable to look gorgeous. Vanity has been chastising me for weeks about it," Spectra replied as she sipped her drink."Well, my daughter, Desire, wishes I'd stop granting every wish I hear. She says I'm far too impulsive and need to restrain myself. So we need to work harder at controlling our abilities," confessed Desiree."Well, I've been overshadowing several therapists in this world. I wanted to gain some insight into how a good therapist works, except I've had mixed results. Since some of them are even worse then I've been," Spectra looked glum having to say that.The wishing ghost looked surprised, asking, "How can they be worse than you?""Well, some insisted they controlled a support line when they did not. They also need to listen to their clients more. Instead, they keep trying to put them in a box. I've learned long ago people want to be individuals, not cookie cutters."Desiree sighed as she played with her silky hair, "I know listening is essential to recovery. However, if someone isn't listening, it will not help in the long run. I also wish some mental health locations wouldn't just make blanket statements.Again, people are individuals, and scientific data doesn't mean squat. It's only facts, not people's hearts and souls. Desire has been studying up on it herself. She wants to understand human behavior better," Desiree relayed."Well, I need to work harder to be a better clinician and mother. Even Vanity is working harder to be a nicer person. Everyone should continuously work on improving themselves.On the other hand? People also should be allowed to be true to themselves. Individuality is more critical then conformity. In some areas of life, conformity is acceptable. However, stripping people of all they are is not," Spectra sighed while she nipped on some scones."Anything else you've learned to do your job better?" Desiree asked curiously. She subtly conjured up another plate of scones. Spectra smiled in delight at the plate of scones.After eating a few, she resumed talking, "I've been learning besides genuinely listening to your clients. I also have to understand periodically my clients know what their limitations are, and I need to understand that and not push them.""Do you think the school guidance counselor doing a good job then? They only hired her two weeks ago," Desiree asked."Not sure, but we shall see. So how is your daughter's blog coming along?" Spectra attempted to change the subject."She's done an excellent job with it with followers both in our world and this one. Originally she created it to keep track of the ghost hunters. Now it's slowly changing to include other things.I've implored her to keep the blog truthful and uphold integrity. Thankful, Pixel's written the best firewall the Ghost Zone has ever seen. So humans can't hack into our systems.""That's good to know. However, I do have one thing I wish more people, both human and ghost, would learn.""What's that?"You and the rest of the mothers we know all agree our children need to know the signs of true friends vs. toxic friends. So they know how to free themselves from relationships that will only hurt them mentally and emotionally.""Yes, that is something EVERYONE needs to understand. What are the warning signs of a toxic person, and how to get away from them. Unfortunately, human TV and movies have normalized far too long unhealthy relationships.Is there to be any hope for the future? Then people need to understand what is appropriate and what isn't. How to behave and not do. And when to cut someone loose. That is what parents and teachers need to be educating children on.""There is plenty people need to be educated on. They need to relearn how to socialize properly and have respect and good manners. Also, parents need to be more involved with their children.""To think we didn't have so many issues a few decades ago. But with the advancement of technology and lack of real-world interaction? Well, we've seen the results in both worlds.""Well, let's hope WE can make a difference regarding our daughters. Anyway, I've got an AA meeting in two hours. So we best get back to the Ghost Zone.""That's true. Seeing how I'm also starting today to learn impulse control. Let's get going!" They finished their coffee and headed back to the nearest portal.

School SpiritCeci Masters gripped her hall pass tightly as she rapidly went to the nearest bathroom. She hated whenever she had her monthly blood. Ever since becoming half-ghost, there were thick blobs of ectoplasm mixed in every time that occurred. The combination of blood and ectoplasm made it even harder to handle her monthly blood. Plus, challenging to dispose of her supplies without raising suspicion.She was forced to utilize her supernatural energy to disintegrate them at school or home so no one stumbled on them. Ceci eventually made it to the empty bathroom. She quickly rushed into a stall to change. However, her ghost sense went off. "This is not the time for a ghost attack!" she moaned loudly. She paused to listen carefully. Yet her enhanced hearing didn't perceive anyone screaming, which baffled her.Whenever an unwelcomed otherworldly visitor crossed over, there was instant hysteria. So how could her ghost sense go off without a notable reason? She'd never experienced it going off for no visible reason. Still, she tried not to dwell on it long.Instead, she finished cleaning herself up and went to wash her hands. Unexpectedly she felt a familiar chill run down her spine. She whipped around and backed into the sink. "Ahh!" shrieked the individual floating behind her. Ceci stood in shock at the female ghost before her. The apparition significantly resembled Jeanette from the Chipettes. The primary differences were her supernatural complexion and that she wasn't a chipmunk."You almost gave me a heart attack!" the bizarre apparition snapped, to which Ceci looked baffled. Who was this ghost? What was she doing in her school? Let alone in the girl's bathroom? And why hadn't they met before now?"Um, I don't mean to be tactless here, but you're a ghost. So, don't you mean I almost gave you a core attack?" Ceci commented in surprise.The 80s-style shade sighed, "Okay, good point. Now, mind telling me what's a half-ghost like you doing in my bathroom?" the specter demanded with her arms crossed."Your bathroom? This is the school's bathroom! How is it yours?" Ceci couldn't believe she was quarreling with a ghost over a restroom! When had her life got this insane? She was facing a phantom in the girl's bathroom, of all places!"It's my safe place. Away from all those mean girls who tormented me! I had to deal with them when I was alive! Now I've got to avoid their meanie daughters or granddaughters!" snarled the supernatural juvenile.She threw her translucent arms up in the air, "Ugh! It never ends! Same story every year! There is always that one classmate who everyone picks on. Everyone else stands by and does nothing! I'm surprised no one else died due to what those bullies consider a funny joke!" growled the ethereal lassie."Um, how about we start over? Or do you want to chat after school? Since I need to get back to chemistry class." Ceci didn't mean to be rude, but she had to return to class.The teen raised an eyebrow at Ceci's words. "That's a surprise someone wants to hear my tale. You must be that Spirit gal all the gossipmongers chitchat about. I hate gossip, but you can't avoid it," acknowledged the bespectacled ghost."Sure, we can talk after school. Meet me under the apple tree. I promise to be there, but I need to get back to class now!" she promised quickly."Okay, you better keep your promise, Spirit. I've had too many broken already," the melancholy creepy teen replied."Don't worry. I always keep my word!" Ceci then jetted out the door. She tried to keep the bizarre encounter out of her mind. She needed to focus on her chemistry exam, but that ghost wasn't far from her mind.She decided not to say anything to either of her friends. Denise had cheerleader practice today, and Jamie was busy rehearsing for an upcoming school play. So hitching up her coat, the teen girl made her way to the bare apple tree."I'm surprised you showed up," the creepy girl noted as she peered from behind the tree. Unquestionably she expected Ceci to break her word. Ceci felt awful knowing from the girl's face she'd likely had multiple individuals in the past break their promises to her."Give me one second," Ceci interjected. She quickly focused her energy to shield them with an illusion. Ceci was steadily improving using her ecto-manipulation capabilities. She had even graduated to using them to cast illusions when not in her ghost form. Regardless, she still had limitations. Without her core fully activated, she couldn't maintain the illusion for as long. Nor could she make as substantial as when she was transformed. But, for now, she hoped it did its job.The geeky girl took off her glasses to try and clean them. "What did you do?" she asked curiously."I cast a short-lived illusion. Now, mind telling me who you are? Or why you've chosen to haunt the girl's restroom?" the attractive sixteen-year-old questioned.The freckled-faced girl sighed before settling on the yellow grass. "Well, it's a long story. But I'll tell you because you genuinely care about my tale.""Please do. By the way, you can call me Ceci," as she tried to make her more relaxed.She held her hand out to shake her hand. The ghost girl returned the gesture before introducing herself. "My name is Irma Edmond. I'm confident you've gathered by my dated fashion I lived in the eighties," she mumbled embarrassingly."Yes, I assumed that. Is that significant?" Ceci was more interested in things related to business. She didn't care when it came to fashion herself. Yet, she knew a lot had changed from decade to decade."As I said before, some things never change. No matter how many decades pass. There are still nasty girls who brutally torment others for no other reason then they find it entertaining.""Yes, I'm thoroughly knowledgeable of the psychological difficulties that come from bullying. The school principal, Ms. Ricardez, held an assembly about it before the holidays.""Well, when I attended Waverly High, I was the school oddball and prime bullying target," Irma explained. She started to cry as she recalled her living memories. "My primary bully was Ella Woods. One of the nastiest girls you ever met, Ceci. She was shallow, petty, and not so smart. Yet, she was the envy of the school. She had the looks and money."Ceci offered her a sympathetic smile. "Yep, I'm extremely familiar with those kinds of individuals. Still, what does she have to do with you?" she questioned. She didn't expect the answer she got, though."Well, she ended up causing my death!" Irma answered angrily."WHAT?!" Ceci stood up in shock. Was she looking at a murder victim?! Someone had been murdered at her school?! Ceci started to have a panic attack over what she'd just heard. Irma seeing she had stressed the girl out, attempted to calm her."Ceci, you can settle down. It wasn't a gun or a knife that ended my life. It was pineapple juice," Irma tried to settle down the hyperventilating half-ghost girl.Now Ceci looked baffled. "Pineapple juice? You died because of pineapple juice?" She was missing something here as it didn't click why pineapple juice would kill someone."I was allergic to it. So Ella thought it'd be a funny joke to spike my apple juice with pineapple. She didn't think I'd die from it." Irma pushed her enormous glasses up her nose."What happened to Ella?" Ceci had to know. She was now invested in the school spirit's story. But, again, she hadn't heard anyone bring up this story before. It would be something of a school legend. So why was it rug-swept?Irma shrugged a little, "Well, I know she got expelled. But if she faced any jail time or not, that I don't know. Still, it's not something talked about much these days," she finished glumly."So I'm guessing she's your obsession?" Ceci surmised. Every ghost had a fixation. It was their reason for being. Ceci, like her brother Danny, was to protect their loved ones. Hence, Ceci assumed that Irma's obsession was with the one who rendered her dead."Well, not just her. After I passed, I vowed I'd never let another person be bullied to the point I was. Yet, I consider the bathroom my home after spending virtually all my school life in it," Irma gazed her gray eyes sadly into Ceci's blue ones."I see. There is a book series that has a ghost girl haunting a bathroom. Only she died because she looked into a giant snake's eyes. Not due to an allergic reaction," she didn't think Irma had ever read "Harry Potter." It was a little unnerving how much Irma had in common with Moaning Myrtle."Well, Ceci, you don't have to stress about me causing trouble. Again, the only thing I do is try to help others who are bullied. Otherwise, nothing malicious," the geeky girl assured the popular teen."Well, Irma. I'll do my best to make people aware of how deadly bullying can be. Hopefully, that will prevent another pointless death. But thanks for saying I don't have to fight you," she breathed a sigh of relief. High school was problematic enough. She was delighted she didn't have to agonize about ghost fighting at school."You're welcome. Let's hang out again. It's gotten pretty lonely for me," Irma asked hopefully. Unquestionably she hadn't had any friends when she was alive."I'll try to visit you under this tree as often as possible. As it is? I need to get home. I'm supposed to babysit my younger siblings today. My parents went out of town to get some components they need for their ghostly equipment.""I understand. Well, I am looking forward to our next chat. See you later," Irma hugged her goodbye.Ceci smiled before transforming to get home quicker. As class VP and a favorite of Ms. Ricardez, she could do something to prevent bullying to this degree. She owed Irma and the rest of her peers to try.
Portal Potion: ApathyIt's been gray weather for a week straight. Since it was wintertime, the long nights only added to the feeling of time standing still. Kelsey despised winter more then any other time of the year. She didn't get to go outside. They overheated the building and, of course, the offset of time. She was bored most of the time. She'd reread some of her favorite fanfics only found on FF.However, the trolling she endured kept growing lately. She'd received several troll reviews calling her a racist since she didn't write Tiana for her Princess and the Frog stories black enough. In addition, Kelsey had no companions in the real world. Therefore, she didn't have any means to socialize and didn't generally get out much. Also, she didn't know anyone black personally.More to the point, her Grammarly was programmed for perfect English. It didn't tolerate slang at all. Also, she tried to write in a simple, straightforward style like Mark Twain's Rules of Good Writing stated to do. Still, she felt down and desired to talk to someone. So employing the portal potion, she summoned her Avatar OC Akiko once more to her world. Again, the gorgeous teenager stood attired in modern-day clothes.She asked how she was doing, to which Kelsey voiced so-so. They sat in the living room as Kelsey relayed to Akiko what she'd been going through since 2023 had started. While she hadn't had anything stressful transpire, the increasing troll reviews began taking a toll on her mental health. Why people didn't realize that trolling could lead someone to kill themselves, she didn't know. But evidently, no one considered the consequences of their actions anymore. Or there are real people on the other end of the computer screen.Akiko, while not thoroughly understanding the situation, agreed with her. That far too many individuals had long stopped caring about their fellow man. They no longer remembered anything regarding basic respect and good manners. Kelsey informed Akiko just how screwed up her world was. Thanks to humanity growing indifference toward each other. She felt if Doomsday was on its way, it was because humans would obliterate themselves.She also resolved to inform Akiko how she'd been appalled by a YouTube video she had seen the day before. A channel she watched called out another channel for claiming Iroh was a villain. Akiko was beyond disgusted anyone would ever think Iroh could be malicious! No matter the reality, Iroh didn't have a malevolent bone in his body. Kelsey said in her comment that this was the same as another channel bashing Harry Potter.She wished she could bring both of them out of their realities so they could sue the channels for character defamation. However, even with the portal potion, that wasn't conceivable because people never buy it. Akiko laughed a bit but assured her if that could've been done, Iroh would've made sure to win his case. Sometimes it was hard to deal with all the negative energy in the multiverse.The two ladies continued to converse for another hour before Kelsey sent Akiko back to her world. She promised she'd visit her in her world after she finished her original story. She had no idea when that would be. Akiko merely smiled and hugged Kelsey, promising they'd be waiting for her. With a smile, Akiko vanished back into her world. Kelsey also smiled and headed to take her evening shower.

Ch. 6: Into the Mist On Wednesday, Ms. Hollens sat in her classroom, going over the exams from earlier that day. She glanced out the window and sighed. She and most staff preferred to grade their papers outside when the weather was nice. The school even built a unique gazebo so the teachers could do that in the warmer months. But seeing how it was fall, she couldn't do that. Which made grading seem more like a chore. What are you going to do, though? In any case, she needed to get these done. School may've let out fifteen minutes ago. However, many kids, including the yearbook staff, were still hanging around for after-school activities.Ms. Hollens hoped to finish grading a few exams before checking in with the yearbook staff. Also, she really needed to finish because the students had a four-day weekend because of teacher conferences. The kindly woman decided grading could wait for twenty minutes. So she started heading to where the yearbook staff worked. Which also happened to be next to the music room. As she approached, she could hear violin music. She paused to listen, then peeked inside the room. Standing alone in the room, Candy played a song of heartbreak and grief. Since Ms. Hollens and Mrs. Sexton were good friends, she'd learned plenty about music. So she knew it wasn't a composed piece Candy was playing. Meanwhile, Candy continued to pour her grief and heartbreak into her music, which was simultaneously beautiful and a tearjerker. Suddenly Candy stopped playing when she realized she wasn't alone. She turned and gasped. "Ms. Hollens! What are you doing here?!" Candy appeared slightly ashamed she'd been caught."That was beautiful. I applauded your originality. As for why I'm here? I needed to check on the yearbook staff, which is next door. You're truly a creative soul, without a doubt." Candy blushed, "Thanks for the compliments, Ms. Hollens. Music is food for the soul, as my mother used to say," her eyes became wet as she said that. Yet still, no tears fell from them. "Are you okay?" she asked gently, to which Candy shook her head."I miss practicing with my mom. I miss hearing her play the piano. I'm wondering if I should give up the violin," she confessed, to which Ms. Hollens broke boundaries by hugging her."I'm positive your mother wouldn't want you to give up the violin. However, sometimes we all need to cry. So why don't you cry?" Ms. Hollens asked her."I can't, Ms. Hollens. I've wanted to cry, but the tears won't fall. Yet, I need to get going. But first, I must gather the last of my family's laundry and drop it off at work. I'm lucky at the Lucky Moon. They allow their employees to do their laundry for free. Otherwise, my uncle and I be spending way more with the crappy machines in the building," as she turned to pack up her violin.Ms. Hollens gazed sadly at her favorite student. "I'll try harder to arrange a time for you to speak with Ms. Ginger."Candy gave a melancholy expression. "I still don't trust therapists. However, maybe you're right; I need to talk to someone. But only if they don't try to change who I am. See you on Monday, Ms. Hollens," as Candy left the room. When she reached the bike rack, her phone chimed. Unlocking it, she looked confused. It was text, but not from anyone she knew. So she guessed it was spam, but it wasn't your typical spam. Instead, it was a text advertising the grand opening of a new shop called "Into the Mist," which, to her shock, was right across from her building. She read the whole text, which described the shop as a modern-day magic shop."Well, I'm not one for magic," she said. "But it does sound like a great way to spend a Friday. I wonder if Judy liked to go?" as she unlocked her bike and headed home to collect this week's worth of laundry.She quickly gathered the last of her family's laundry before heading to the Lucky Moon Dry Cleaners. The teen remained quite fortunate. Her job was only three blocks away. Which was helpful when she couldn't ride her bike. Her boss's niece drove the carpool van to take employees to and from work if they couldn't get there under their own steam, which was also helpful. Like always, her boss, April Moon, was happy to see her. April's family were immigrants from South Korea back in the '90s. They're some of the nicest people in town, and half the city did use their facility to do their laundry. So they did make plenty of money. "Hey, Candy! Boy, you look bushed. Are you getting enough sleep?" the beautiful lady asked concernedly. April was a motherly person and treated all her employees like her children."I'm sleeping the best I can, Ms. Moon. But as you know, it's my laundry day. So I better get started on that," Candy swiftly replied. Candy usually loved to chat with April, yet she felt too drained today."Very well. If you need me, I'll be in the backroom. I'll be sorting this month's clothes to be donated to the local homeless shelter. So feel free to help yourself to the drinks in the fridge.""Thanks, Ms. Moon. You're so kind and generous. I wish more people where like you," as Candy headed to the employee laundry room. Employees had a separate laundry room from the rest of the building.After she'd started her laundry, she logged onto AU. She'd finished two weeks ago making her avatar. Her avatar was a humanoid female panther dressed in beautiful African garments. Her screen name was Queen Peace. She eventually found Judy, whose avatar looked like a fairy with dragonfly wings. "Hi, Fairywings. Did you get the same text I did today?" "If you mean for that new shop "Into the Mist?" then yes! Ads for it have been popping up all week on social media! I'm inquisitive about it!" "We should investigate it. It sounds pretty cool to me!" "Agreed. Well, I can't chat much longer. I need to whip up some dinner!" "That's okay. I need to get laundry done myself. See you later!" Candy logged off. She then proceeded to do her homework while her laundry was going on. By the time she finished, night had fallen. "Candy? Are you done?" called April as she walked into the private laundry room. "Yes, I'm done! Is June ready to give me a lift back to my building?" Candy questioned.April only smiled, "She'll be ready in fifteen minutes. The other girls need to finish their shifts. Then she'll take you all home. Anything I can help you with till then?" "Well, I guess we could just talk," April joined Candy at the table.She smiled again before asking, "So, what are your plans for this weekend? I know you don't have school tomorrow and will work here. But do you have any other plans?" "Well, I got a text after school about a new shop opening. Judy and I plan to go to the grand opening Friday to check it out." "I've gotten the same texts on my phone. I'm also intrigued by this new store. I might check it out myself."Candy smiled, "Well, from what I've gathered, Ms. Moon. This new shop will have one hell of a grand opening!""Yes, it will, without a doubt. Now is there anything else on your mind?"Candy frowned a little, "I wish people stop bugging me about how I'm feeling. I appreciate you're all worried about me. However, I'd appreciate it if people let me decide when I'm ready to talk about my mom's death.""Okay, I won't push the subject. I'll wait till you're ready to talk about it. Just know I'm here to listen, and I won't judge.""Thanks, Ms. Moon. Well, seeing it closing time, shall we get in the carpool?" The Korean woman nodded. So everyone piled into a large van, and June drove everyone home.When Friday rolled around, Candy was about to burst from excitement. The grand opening was scheduled for ten. She'd been ready since seven for it. Finally, a quarter to ten, Judy showed up. They could already see a huge crowd had gathered.Finally, at ten, the store opened its doors. Everyone excitedly went in. One thing was for sure. This was a truly magical place. The ceiling replicated the night sky perfectly. Also hanging were Chinese lanterns.The floor had a carpet with Zodiac symbols from both the Western and Chinese. Again, plenty of colorful candles lit up the store. The layout was quite unique as well.The right-back corner had several books. The books covered mythology, symbolism, cultural history, and other similar topics. The left-back corner was a garden of various flowers. The place also sold various crystals, figurines, fashion, and homeopathic products.They even had a black cat and raven moving freely about! Unquestionably this was a magical place. Candy and Judy were studying some of the jewelry. Namely the bracelets that were labeled for what they specialized in.Suddenly they heard a voice behind them. "Hello, welcome to "Into the Mist," can I help you find something?" turning around to see who spoke to them, Candy's heart started going a mile a minute.Standing behind them was a gorgeous girl only a few years older then them. She was tall and curvy with well-sculptured features and sparkling silver eyes! Her black and fuchsia hair and clothes were asymmetrical. The sixteen-year-old also noted how beautiful the girl's various tattoos were.Judy smiled but then noticed Candy looked like a deer caught in headlights. She knew that look. It was the look she wore whenever she spotted Tony alone. So she gently nudged Candy to get her out of her love-struck state."Hello, I'm Judy, and this is Candy. You've quite an amazing shop here!""Thanks. My family is quite pleased with how the grand opening is going. Where are my manners? My name is Willow, Willow Roth. That's my older sister Catalina helping with the clothes and my mom Katrina manning the cash register," Willow pointed to her family members.Both teens noted the strong resemblance between the Roths. All three had the same body type and silver eyes. In addition, they really dig asymmetrical hairstyles and clothes. Willow's sister's hair was dyed heliotrope, and her mother's a very dark red."Wow, you're all so beautiful!" Candy couldn't help but blurt out. Then she blushed, but Willow only giggled."Yes, we get compliments all the time on how we look. But can I give you a proper tour of the shop? Then, I can help you find what you're looking for. Oh, everything is half off for our grand opening.""Well, I'm quite a good writer and love reading. So maybe show us first more of the books?" Candy suggested."Sure, I can do that," as she led them to the books. "Now, is there a particular culture you're interested in learning about? Or would you like to read one of our personality books?We've various books about various topics and how they determine your personality traits. For example," pulling a thick book off the shelf. "This book describes personality traits based on your favorite color and animals. Or would you prefer our dream interpretation book?"Candy kindly asked if they had any books about cats. She explained they're her favorite animals. Willow smiled and gave her a book about cats. "This book not only has facts about cat breeds. But also myths, spiritual beliefs, personality traits, and well, you get the idea.""Wow, this is beyond cool! Thanks! By the way? What's your cat's name?" pointing to a female black cat with a jeweled collar."I love cats myself, so she's mine. Her name is Luna. My sister's pet raven is named Poe. Do you want a small snack so we can talk more privately?" Willow asked to which the girls agreed.They're surprised to find a small area for people to enjoy a small drink and snack. They each got some frozen yogurt and started talking. They found out Willow was nineteen and starting college. She hoped to become a plant scientist as she always loved horticulture. Her older sister was twenty-one and studying to be an engineer. Catalina had always admired architecture and wanted to expand her interests. They'd both be starting next week at the local university.Candy and Judy excitedly talked about themselves. However, Candy became silent when Willow asked about her family. Seeing she hit a sore subject, she told them to wait a moment.Five minutes later, she returned with a bracelet. "This is our grief bracelet. It comprises Apache Tears, Obsidian, Aquamarine, Calcite, Agate, Chrysocolla, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Angelite, Rhodochrosite, and Tourmaline. They're the best stones for dealing with a broken heart. Apache Tears are healing stones known to help navigate grief and loss. In addition, Apache Tears are said to have the ability to lend support during times of sorrow. Apache Tears can also help those struggling with depression. Apache Tears are said to absorb negative energy.Black obsidian is often associated with mystery and has a powerful ability to absorb. For this reason, it is used frequently in Feng Shui, spiritual connection, and protection. It is also known as a spiritual cleanser because of its ability to absorb psychic smog and help to see things more clearly.Aquamarine is a stone of symmetries, blue and reflective, and as such is said to be both of the sea and sky. Shamans use stones of symmetry like this one because they allow us to look both within and outward. Aquamarine helps us to gain insight, truth, and wisdom. It can help calm the mind, nerves, and anxieties. That's what a few of the crystals can do. If you'd like, I could give you a book on crystals if you'd like to learn more.""Thanks, Willow. You're really friendly. I never knew the spiritual side of gems. My family runs a jewelry shop. And all these facts are new to me!"Willow blushed before speaking awkwardly, "Well, you two seemed like you make great friends. I've not really been good at making friends in the past. Again, people thought me a bit weird. However, we've all seem to hit it off quite well.""Yes, I'd agree with that. So do you want to go to Midnight Zero sometime next week? It's the local hangout," Candy asked hopefully."Well, if we can work it into our schedule, I'd like that. The bracelet and book on crystals are at no charge. You'll have to pay for the book on cats. But I won't charge you for the grief bracelet or crystal book."They talked for another half hour before the girls left. Looking forward to hanging out in the future. Once they left the shop, Judy teased Candy mercilessly about her obvious crush on Willow. Candy begged her to stop, so she did. "Honestly, Candy! You love to tease me about my crush on Tony. So why can't I do some friendly teasing about your crush on Willow?""You surely haven't forgotten the last time someone found out I was crushing on someone?""I'm not likely to forget how Alicia humiliated you by reading your poem about that girl from our eighth-grade English class. But I swear I'll not let anyone know you have a crush.""I'd be more worried if Willow finds out," Candy looked mortified at the prospect."Well, we only met today. Who knows? Maybe she does like girls too. I'm sure we'll learn more about each other. Still, that will have to wait for another day. We should count our blessings. We've made a new friend!""You're not jealous, are you? I mean, it's only been the two of us for so long. I'm worried about what will happen with Willow now being part of our friendship.""Well, I can't answer that right now. But, again, we just met. But we'll see how everything plays out. However, you and Willow might hit it off. Again, you both love cats, and with your family jewelry business? I'm sure you'll have tons of facilitating conversations regarding crystals. Just saying.""Well, I'm going to wear this bracelet daily along with my normal jewelry. I hope that book about the symbolism of insects she gave you makes you happy.""It will be good reading, without a doubt. Now we should properly get home. See you later, Candy.""See you, Judy!" The girls returned to their respective homes to do a little reading. Candy hoped today meant things were turning a corner. She swore her new bracelet was already working its magic!
Ch. 5 Midnight ZeroOn Saturday evening at 11:00, a captivating young woman sat hunched over a bar going over her establishment, Midnight Zero's monthly bills. Her name was Selena Knight, and like her namesake, she looked like a goddess. Tall, long-legged, waist-length silky jet-black hair and enormous sapphire blue eyes. She sported stylish attire that accentuated both her figure and her multiple tattoos. Selena's little sister Dusk operated the local tattoo parlor, and Selena's body was her favorite canvas.Selena had worked hard to make a suitable location for the local youths and non-alcoholics to hang out. Her club was a mix of a non-alcoholic bar, an internet cafe, and a dance club. It had bold, bright colors, unbelievable aquariums, and excellent service. Every week local bands helped entertain patrons. She had rules posted on the front door in more than one language. The rules stated the dress code, no weapons, and no poison. The last one signified no smoking, vaping, drugs, or alcohol. She didn't care if weed was legal. It remained forbidden within her club. Right now, she was muttering to herself. "I'm not pleased the cost of my internet and WIFI has increased. Also, I need to obtain a replacement metal detector. Plus, the unisex bathroom needs to be upgraded as well. Well, I sure as shooting have my work cut out for me!" she muttered as she sipped some red carbonated water."Penny, for your thoughts, Selena?" called out a voice that made her look up. She beamed happily to see her fiance, Miles Chase standing at the entrance. He always looked so handsome whenever he wore his police uniform. It really turned her on."Miles! I wasn't expecting you this late. I thought you told me you had to work the graveyard shift?" she questioned, confused by his presence. But, even if she was confused, she still felt herself get turned on by his uniform.He laughed happily before kissing her, "I do have to work it. However, I need some caffeine so I can power through it. Especially since once the taverns close down, you know people will be brawling. I've told you before. Police work changes depending on the time of day.""Which is why I worry so much about you. Again, I've already lost one of my best friends since Felicity was killed. I don't wish to lose my soon-to-be husband, too," the gorgeous woman answered in a depressed tone."I'm sorry too," as he hugged her. "Before you ask, Ryan is still recovering, physically and mentally. Cory and I have been gradually persuading him to try and get into mental therapy. But, without a doubt, both he and Candy need it."Selena sighed heavily before replying. "I wish we could turn back the clock. I wish Felicity still lived next to me in the east side neighborhood. Unlike the west side in the gated community of Shadow Falls Heights? People from our side of town are much more pleasant. They're a real sense of community, and all the youths are outside instead of playing video games inside. We've multiple activities and are much better than those elitists!""I feel you, Selena. I agree our neighborhood is much friendlier and more social then Shadow Falls Height. However, it would be best if you remembered not everyone there is a snob," he sharply reminded her. She flushed crimson at his reminder. Like most people, Selena sometimes needed to choose her word more carefully."Point taken," she noted as she started to put the paperwork away. Miles looked at his captivating bride. Selena Knight was renowned throughout Shadow Falls for her sassy and audacious personality. She made sure she stood out and always spoke her mind. She also ensured the rules of her club were followed to a T.Selena was the kind of individual that could make friends everywhere she went and would stand up for anyone being ridiculed. One of the countless reasons he loved her. She passed him a sizable energy drink to help power him through the long night. He took a large gulp before asking, "How are the wedding plans coming along? I must confess you've made quite a bold decision to allow all previous brides to wear their wedding dresses. However, I know its because you felt sad that they bought a dress for one day."Selena's smile lit up the room, and she giggled happily, "Yep, so with the bride's permission, they can wear them again. Besides, I've already made it unmistakable that I'm not sporting white, so I'll still stand out. I wish my grandmother Claire had finished my wedding dress before she passed," she finished sadly."Well, you did say your aunt Amber is finishing it, correct?" he asked to which she nodded.Selena glanced at the family reunion photograph behind the bar. "My Aunt Amber learned from the best. It's only natural she took over the seamstress store after my grandparents retired. I hope she's got enough help to do all the female wedding party's unique attire.""Well, at least they agreed to the temporary tattoos. Since you wanted Dusk to be involved in the wedding somehow," her soon-to-be husband quipped, to which she again giggled cheerfully."Yep, my little sister will do some of her best work for the wedding! I cannot wait for the day to come! I'm only sad that Felicity, who had promised since kindergarten to be my maid of honor, is gone."Miles set down his energy drink. Then, taking a big sigh, "I know that's why you switched to Vivian. I'm grateful Ryan has recuperated enough to be my best man for the event.""Me too. Well, you should get going. Please come home safely. We still haven't decided what color to paint the inside of our new home!" she appeared utterly giddy regarding the prospect."I'll do my best, Selena. No promises, but I'll do my best," as they shared a long kiss before he left for his shift. After Miles left, Selena started her Zoom meeting with her bridal party. Despite the late hour, they'd prearranged this meeting. She looked at all the fetching women on the screen and smiled cheerfully."Again, I apologize for calling you at this ghastly hour. So I'll keep this short," Selena apologized to her friends.A stunning blond woman with sensational green eyes spoke up, "It's honestly no trouble, Selena. It's not like there's anyone here to keep my bed warm, so to speak," she sighed unhappily."Reggie working late again, Vivian?" Selena questioned sympathetically. Again, she had never liked the man, but she didn't like seeing any of her friends blue either.Vivian Silver nodded, "He never comes home on Saturdays. Honestly? I've not seen him home on the weekend for several years now," she admitted in a defeated tone."I don't mean to be imprudent here, but don't you think that's a big warning flag?" asked Cindy Perez as she tossed her long braided black hair over her shoulder. It was clear where her daughter Angelina got her good looks from."I concur with Cindy. My husband Levi unquestionably wouldn't do that for several years. Not without making me somewhat suspicious," commented Marilyn Parson."I think if he's committing adultery, that's the least of your concerns, Vi. I'd be more worried about what's going on with your children if he is cheating," Cora interjected as she fiddled with her flowing copper curls."I appreciate all your concerns. However, I thought we were here to talk about Selena getting married. Not my marriage being dangerously on the rocks," Vivian redirected the conversation."Well, if you're sure, Vi.""Very sure, Selena. So any update on our dresses?" the breathtaking blond asked, and Selena smiled."I'm, of course, over the moon with all of you selecting vivid and bold colors for your attire. We again want them to emphasize our figures and show off my little sister's work.""Might I point out a few of us do have authentic tattoos? So what do you have in mind for those who don't?" Cindy inquired. She'd plenty of her own tattoos from Dusk. She even agreed that her daughter could get her first one as a graduation present."I'm thinking a combination of mythology with elemental blossoms. What do you think of the idea?" Selena asked her friend's group. They all started buzzing excitedly for a few minutes."I'll be delighted if she does a temporary tattoo of a firebird inside a heart made of roses. I've always wanted that for real, but I can't afford it. Things have been tight due to inflation, you know," reminded Cora, to which everyone groaned in agreement."Are you even allowed to get tattoos, Cora? Unfortunately, I'm not knowledgeable regarding which theologies are against them. I only know some religions find tattoos offensive." Marilyn commented nervously."Yes, some religions are against tattoos, Marilyn. However, it's a personal choice. More to the point, we're in the 2020s! Hence, it's not that surprising for individuals of all walks of life to have tattoos," reminded the hot young DA. This caused everyone to erupt into loud giggles."Okay, you've made your point, Cora. But, um, do you girls want to chitchat about something other then the wedding? It's honestly fine with me if you'd like to gab about something else tonight," Selena assured them."Well, I want to get a few things off my chest. So may I go first?" requested Marilyn, to which everyone nodded.Taking a deep breath, the stunning redhead began. "Things at the university have been going well. Other then we had a discipline hearing for one of the educators. He's on probation until we thoroughly investigate the accusations of misconduct. I want to trust my staff but do you ever genuinely know anyone completely?""Well, if you need my help, Marilyn, I'll do my best. But, unfortunately, the DA's been exceptionally occupied the past three years with building a strong case. So I rather not speak about it since its confidential and might be disturbing for some of you," Cora divulged as much as possible."We don't want you to get in trouble, Cora. So if you can't share more, then we understand. As for myself? I'm doing my best at the high school to help my students prepare for their foreign language exam next week.I'm going to quiz them on different versions of Spanish. Latin America vs. Spain. I've arranged this examination to show my students how the same language can be so vastly dissimilar," Cindy revealed her lesson plan. The rest of the ladies praised her for her forward-thinking when it came to her class."Well, pray that I can get Alicia to study for the test. It's getting more challenging to get her to sit down and study. I've had to confiscate her phone and credit card four times since the school year started!" Vivian revealed angrily.She sounded disgusted before continuing, "I wish I understood my second daughter. Neither Tabby nor Nick has any difficulties when it comes to their schoolwork. Tabby is studying to be an engineer. I'm confident you understand how much intellectual discipline that takes to achieve.I'm proud my son gets such excellent science grades and is the middle school soccer team star. Nick does understand schoolwork comes before soccer. So, therefore, he works extra hard so he can do both. I couldn't be more proud of him," Vivian finished relaying her family drama."Miles and I haven't had time to discuss having kids properly yet. We've got a lot to think about. Since I suffer from PCOS, I'm not likely to have a child naturally. He knows this, so if we choose to have kids, it will be through adoption," Selena reminded her companions."There's nothing wrong with that. However, more individuals must stop being obsessed with having a kid with their DNA. Families are made by love, not blood," Marilyn pointed out, to which the others agreed."Thanks for the pep talk. Now seeing how its a quarter after midnight? Perhaps we should all turn in for the night. We can talk tomorrow at a more reasonable hour, alright?" Selena said to which her friends all agreed. Everyone signed off to go to bed. Selena had to lock up the club before driving home to crash for the night.

Case of the Terrified Teacher, Chapter 4 by MisterMistoffelees
Chapter 4: Friends are always there for you! It was Friday, and every student of Shadow Falls High was waiting for the last bell to liberate them. Candy and Judy were in study hall along with most of their classmates. Candy was editing Judy's English essay while Judy went over Candy's biology report. "Your grammar has significantly improved, Judy. However, I recommend you try to cut down on the to-be verbs," Candy advised her best friend."I'll try to do better next time. You've done extremely well on your biology report. I didn't find any major mistakes. The only thing I had to correct was mixing up some of the recessive genes with dominant ones. Otherwise, it's perfect," as they exchanged their reports."Thanks, Judy. I've never been that big into genealogy. Not even to find out about my 'father," Candy admitted tiredly.Judy raised an eyebrow at that statement, "Well, considering your mother had you via sperm donor? You technically don't have one. However, I'm positive your mother reviewed tons of information before selecting the donor she wanted."Candy sighed for a moment. "My mom always wanted to be a mother. Although, of course, she may've been asexual, so she didn't desire a lover. Nevertheless, that didn't deter her from wanting to be a mom.""Candy, are you positive you don't want to talk about it? I know what you're going through. I've lost a mother too," Judy gently nudged her. But, of course, Candy didn't want to talk about it. Yet, she figured it'd be easier to tell her best friend before she was forced to see the school psychologist.With great reluctance, Candy finally spoke, "I do miss my mother every day. Her dying a week after my sixteenth birthday only makes it more tragic. I feel angry she won't see me pass my driver's test. Nor see me graduate. It sucks.""I scarcely remember my mother. Since she abandoned the family before my brother was even a year old," Judy disclosed sadly. But, like with Candy, the subject of their lost mothers was heartbreaking for both of them."Is there anything you do recall concerning her?" Candy questioned cautiously. She never met Judy's egg donor, so it wasn't like she had memories of her either.Judy took a deep breath before speaking, "For my egg donor? My memories are extremely fuzzy. What I do remember is she wasn't a good mother. She didn't take care of Riley or me. She preferred to indulge herself and neglect us.""I'm sorry your birth giver was a narcissist," apologized Candy, to which Judy shook her head."If my birth giver didn't want to be a mom, then she should've never had kids. Honestly, we were better off that she ran off. If she didn't care enough about her own children to care for them, then neither my brother nor I needed a mother like that. Her running away says a lot more about her then us," Judy declared, but Candy noticed the tears glistening in her hazel eyes."Still, you've mentioned in the past you wish she hadn't left," Candy pointed out.Judy hung her head. The tears gradually dripped down her face, "Well, yes. I spent several years attempting to figure out why she didn't want us. Why I wasn't deserving of being loved? Why did she despise me? That's only natural," she took a few moments to dry her eyes.She took a shaking breath and said, "The pain never entirely leaves your heart. It just gets slightly easier as time passes. I know you don't like therapists. However, the one my brother and I see has benefited us tremendously.""I don't trust them. If it weren't for Ms. Hollen's insistence, I wouldn't have agreed to see the school shrink. But I still don't trust them," Candy asserted."I wish you give them a chance, Candy. You benefit from having someone to talk to regarding your problems," Judy urged again."That's what I have you for, isn't it?" Candy countered, to which Judy sighed."Okay, let's drop this since I don't want us to fight," then, changing the subject, she asked, "Have you asked your uncle about sleeping over this weekend?""Not yet. I'll ask him tonight. He won't have any objections. Since we've had sleepovers together since third grade," the indigo-haired lass replied."Well, at least neither of us has to work this weekend. After all, its because we've got a free weekend. I wanted to have you over. I think the change in environment would do you some good."For six months, Judy had been attempting to help her friend out. Whether it was getting her to talk about her feelings Or trying to get her to be more cheerful, it wasn't easy, yet that's what friends do. Then, looking into her friend's brilliant green eyes, she noticed how bad her depression was."Well, I do miss my old bedroom. I miss my old house and the old neighborhood. I hated giving away so much stuff to fit into my smaller bedroom," grumbled Candy painfully."Well, at least you still have your laptop. Plus, you can still practice your violin," Judy attempted to find the silver lining."I know I'm fortunate to have both of those things. However, it still hurt to donate most of my stuffed animals and books," her friend replied unhappily."Considering you used to have over a hundred stuffed animals and two and a half bookcases, I'm not surprised," the curly-haired girl acknowledged."Well, if you're forced to forfeit your terrariums, I'm confident you'd be put off too," referring to the multiple terrariums her best friend kept in her bedroom.Judy shuddered as a vague memory emerged. "I may not recall much concerning my mother. However, I recall she didn't care about my love of insects. Instead, she constantly screamed at me for getting dirty and loving insects."Candy gave her friend a compassionate look. Then, squeezing her hand, she kindly said, "I consider it a blessing your father doesn't have any qualms with your interests. Plus, he's not abusive in any manner.Judy nodded as she played with her hair. "Yes, I'm grateful for having a devoted father, Candy. He loves Riley and me for who we are. He's got no issues with our passions. His only rule is we keep the house orderly. So as long as the house and our rooms are clean? He's got no issue with my terrariums or my brother's rock collection," she answered gratefully.Just then, the bell rang, signaling the end of the day. The girls got up to collect their things from their lockers. However, they accidentally ran into Cece and Angelina on their way out of study hall. "I'm so sorry, Cece!" Candy apologized as she quickly bent down to pick up Cece's belongings."It's okay, Candice! Everything will be fine if my portfolio doesn't get trashed!" Cece assured her.Candy looked a bit miffed. She handed the pretty teen back her portfolio. "I've told you before, Cece. My name is Candy, not Candice. My mom named me Candy because she had a big sweet tooth.""I apologize, Candy. Now, if you excuse me, I only have ten minutes to prepare for today's student council meeting. See you later," as she bolted out the door.Judy quietly remarked, "Sometimes I think Cece's a bit too tightly wound. She's far too much a perfectionist. But, on the other hand, I've never seen her honestly unwound.""I'd have to agree. Periodically she and Angelina can both be too overzealous. Since the first year, Cece's been fighting with the school board. She wants everyone to wear uniforms and have vegan options for lunch," Candy whispered as they collected their books."I don't have an objection to her wanting to include people's dietary preferences in the cafeteria menu. However, I'm not delighted she wants us to wear uniforms," Judy retorted. The curly-haired girl shuddered, "I'm not convinced if we're dressed the same, it will make an actual difference. Additionally, I want to define who I am as an individual. Plus, do you know how pricey uniforms are?"Candy only nodded as she finished gathering her textbooks. " I agree with you on both accounts. The vegan thing, I understand. However, I rather not wear a uniform myself." She paused to fix her cat beanie before resuming, " I've also noticed that Angelina occasionally goes about her causes incorrectly.While I'm thrilled to have an ally to advocate for those of the LGBT community like myself, I strongly feel that she often goes about it wrong in her fight for equality and acceptance."Judy nodded, "I've heard her father, Coach Perez, tell her more then once she needs to focus some of that energy on the soccer field. Again, it's vital to stand up for your beliefs. However, do it at the appropriate place and time," as they exited the school and headed to the student parking lot.As they approached the bike rack, they noticed Tony Parson standing casually there. He was occupied doing something on his smartphone. Judy turned beet red, and Candy forced her forward."Hey, Tony! What's up?" Candy called out. Judy tried to hide behind her friend while failing miserably at it.The handsome teen smiled brilliantly at the girls. "Oh, hey, Candy. Judy. How are you today?" he asked casually."We're fine since it's a free weekend. What are your plans for the weekend?" Candy asked since Judy had become mute.Tony shrugged a bit. "My dad and I plan to assemble more Lego sets to decorate the city library. Mom may find it slightly dumb. Yet, I love it when Dad and I put them together."Judy unexpectedly spoke nervously. "If it makes you happy, then it's not dumb. It's simply not your mother's thing, is it?"He smiled at her before replying. "You got that right, Judy. While Mom and I share a fondness of archery, given we're both Sagittarius. However, she isn't one for nerdy stuff. Mom would much rather do gardening or archery then build a Lego set.""I imagine your mother knows tons of plant information since she's won the Shadow Falls Flower Show for the past six years," Judy said without reddening."Yep, Mom sure loves to garden. She's even the Head of the Gardening Club at the university. It's occasionally shocking to think my mom is the dean. However, she's very down to earth and friendly to everyone.""So, how are things at the animal shelter? Judy told me at lunch you've got a fundraiser shortly," Candy interjected. She again was hoping to help her friend talk to her crush."Yes, the monthly fundraiser is in two weeks. I'm positive you'll figure out some fun ways to raise money for the animals, Judy," Tony again smiled at her."Well, I do hope to find a way to help those poor animals. But, unfortunately, it's not easy when the city is underfunding the shelter," Judy admitted looking disappointed."Well, my parents say that's no fault of Mayor Pryde. If anything, its got to do with Alicia's father," Tony hissed angrily. They all shared a look of contempt for a few moments. Alicia and her father made half the people in Shadow Falls miserable."Despite being the wealthiest gentleman in the city, he's not well-liked. He's not especially charitable with his money. He's a true miser without a doubt," remarked Candy honestly."That's for sure, Candy. I'm delighted everyone in his family, aside from Alicia, isn't entitled. Since Nick is such an excellent companion to Riley," Judy reminded her confidante."My mom only has praises for Tabby. Since she's a model student and extremely helpful to one and all at the university," Tony interjected. But, again, with his mother being the Dean of Shadow Falls University, she'd know everything about all who attend there."Well, speaking of the Silvers, we should get going before Alicia gets here. I'm not in the mood for her ridiculing me for riding a bike instead of driving a car." Candy stated loudly.Tony cringed before groaning, "I'm not in the mood to deal with her trying to flirt with me either, Candy. I hope my dad gets here soon to pick me up. But, again, I don't want to deal with her.""Well, we better get going ourselves. We'll see you Monday, Tony. Have a nice weekend!" Judy managed to get out."Same to you two!" as the girls quickly skedaddled. As they started down the street, Candy smiled, "See Judy? Was it that hard to talk to Tony? I get the feeling he likes you too."Judy flushed, "Please don't bring that up right now, Candy! I need to swing by the middle school to collect my brother. Call me tonight to tell me if you're coming over this weekend," as they reached a crosswalk."I'll let you know, don't worry. Well, have a nice evening! Love you, Judy!""Love you too, Candy! I hope I'll see you tomorrow!" Then, they went in different directions.Candy eventually reached her apartment building. Waving her tag, she entered the building. She paused to collect the mail before riding the elevator back to her apartment. "Uncle Ryan? I'm home! Uncle Ryan?" she called out."I'm in the bathroom, Candy! I'll be out in a moment.""Okay," she said as she parked her bike in the living room. She quickly went to her room to drop off her stuff. Then walked back to the living room, where her uncle was sitting comfortably on the sofa."How was school today?" her uncle asked as he sipped a Sprite."It was fine. I managed to avoid Alicia today. So I consider that good. Ms. Hollens is still trying to set up an appointment with the school shrink for me," she shuddered at that.Ryan gazed at his niece. He understood her phobia of therapists. However, he agreed with his friend Cory. "It might not be bad if you did talk to someone, Candy."She gave her uncle a hard stare. "You've never been one to open up to others yourself, Uncle Ryan. Plus, you've said more then once therapy is too expensive anyway.""I know I have said that. But it doesn't change the fact it might be a good idea," he replied. He'd been mulling it over the last few days. He'd had coffee again with his friends that morning. Miles and Cory strongly urged Ryan and Candy to seek mental support. They even gave him some numbers to call. First, however, Ryan knew he had to approach the subject carefully with his niece."Well, I still don't trust them," she stated. Then, taking a deep breath, "Judy wants to have a sleepover this weekend because it is free for both of us. Can I go?""Sure, I've no problem with that," a little surprise she even asked. As if he would've said no. He was happy any chance she got out of their cramped apartment."Are you sure, Uncle Ryan? Are you going to be able to manage without me?" she asked with concern.He took a deep breath before replying, "Candy, I don't want you to think you've got to take care of me. I'll be fine by myself for the weekend. I'm starting to get stronger, so I'll be fine," he assured her."Okay, if you're sure," she did seem a bit reluctant to leave him alone for the weekend.He gave her a small smile that put her at ease. "I'm sure. So I made pasta for dinner. So whenever you're ready, we can have it.""Okay, well, let me get my things put away." Candy quickly put her things away before having dinner. Candy didn't care for pasta, but it was her uncle's favorite food. So she put up with it for his sake. Candy's sleepover with Judy went well. By the time Monday rolled around, Candy was in a much better mood.

ATM Sketch(A man stands in front of an ATM and slides a red credit card into the machine and puts in his number. The ATM tells him it’s an invalid pin. He groans with frustration and then hears a loud click and feels something hard push against his spine. He turns around and sees a masked mugger standing behind him.)MUGGER:Don’t be scared but I’m about to rob you.GUY: (smirks without looking behind him)I know that gun. Is that a .45 semi-automatic?MUGGER:That’s a very good guess. How did you know?GUY:I could feel it.MUGGER:No. Really?GUY:That’s a bit too much gun. Next time I’d suggest a snub nosed .38. Quicker on the draw.MUGGER:That’s a good suggestion, I’ll remember that.GUY:Is there anything I could do for you?MUGGER:I’d like to have all your money, please.GUY:I’d love to help you, but I can’t remember the pin.MUGGER:Oh. That’s alright. Take your time, we got all night.(MUGGER #1 hears a clicking sound and feels something hard push against his spine. A second mugger in a red-yellow mask stands behind the first mugger).MUGGER #2Give me all your money!MUGGER #1 turns around and smiles at Mugger number #2.MUGGER 2:Oh, great. It’s you again.MUGGER:Oh, hi Phil. How’re the kids?GUY:You two know each other?MUGGER #2What’re you doing, you know this is my spot.MUGGER:I got as much right as anyone else.GUY (TO MUGGER #2):Your voice sounds familiar. Did you ever do time in Albany?MUGGER #2Just shut up and empty your pockets!MUGGER:I’m flat broke. I was just about to rob this man. If you wait a minute, I’d be happy to oblige you.MUGGER #2 (sighs)Fine.MUGGER: (To the GUY)Try the number again.GUY: (put’s in the pin)Didn’t work.MUGGER:Are you sure you’re using the right card?GUY:Yes!MUGGER 2:God, we’ll be here all night!MUGGER:That’s a pessimistic attitude. I’m sure the next time he tries the pin he’ll get it. Go ahead.GUY:I got one attempts left, if it’s not right the machine will eat my card.MUGGER:Concentrate really hard, is the number your birthday?GUY:No, that’s too obvious.MUGGER:Maybe it’s your mother’s birthday?MUGGER #2Get off the birthdays! That’s not it!MUGGER:Do you have any money in your wallet you can give us?GUY:If I had money would I be here at an ATM?MUGGER #2:That’s a good point.GUY:I’m sorry, fellas. It’s not going to happen tonight.MUGGER:Oh, that’s too bad.MUGGER #2:Terrific!GUY:I’m afraid you’ll have to rob someone else tonight. Again, I’m really sorry.MUGGER:Don’t worry about it, these things happen.MUGGER #2There’s a cop coming down the street. I’m out of here.(MUGGER #1 and MUGGER #2 run in opposite direction. Another guy comes running down the street and stops in front of the GUY).Guy #2:Excuse me but did you see a man with a red credit card just stop by here?GUY #1:Can’t say that I have.(A cop car pulls up in front of the ATM and rolls down their window.)COP:What’s the problem?GUY #2My credit card has been stolen. I think someone just tried to use it.COP:Sorry, there’s not too much we can do about that.(Guy #1 ejects the credit card and briskly walks away.)

'Je Suis L'amour'"Je suis l'amour" he somberly pontificated behind closed doors as her seemingly disinterested voice resonated through the high chambered metal columns holden to her microphone. Calmly, steadily, words proffered advice for those that listened, ears reeling and stunned, while tongues fashioned silence in the captivating sound of her steeled truth. Previously unknown, this soulful melody now ebbed and flowed with a lyrical fashion from behind a socially invisible face. "Gods fearing pretty, broken porcelain walls only cling together under powder-coated verbal exteriors to provide a temporary shelter when they feel threatened". He laughed. Finally. The house was brought down to its knees, and deafening quiet was only accompanied by tears of understanding and relief: someone had finally given a voice to reason, to rise, to overthrow and reset the unsustainable pattern of an otherwise untouchable time bomb set for an internally destructive demise. It then hit. Always excluded in the real, not only did he feel she was infrequently alone, but realized these prolifically isolating behaviors valued no depth for him or from within...their gods were just as foreign to themselves as to others who also graced these porcelain walls. A brief, temporary moment of pressure satiated the need to justify her frozen words from being dissolved. She turned from the stage and in the quickness of a light change, disappeared into the background. "Ha, pomme. Adam est la pomme. Les mots d'Evie dansent dans le château."

I want to commission a fanfic but...Honestly, right now I'm really itching to commission someone for a fanfic. But at the same time I have a hard time finding any actual good writers. My usual fanfic writer I go to for commissions is on another hiatus. She's slow but her prices are perfect and her writing style is what I like most. She's also willing to write about absolutely anything and is also good at researching. It's honestly impossible to find anyone like her.To anyone who reads this, I have some spare points/cash I want to use on a fanfic commission or two (or maybe a comic commission). However, if you want me to commission you, there are some details you should keep in mind that keep me away from most fanfic writers on this site: If you demand cash payments, do NOT demand a rate of "100 words =$1" or anything higher I HATE seeing this around since it makes the whole thing needlessly expensive. This is because my country's currency is a lot weaker than the USD and for personal reasons I don't have PayPal and have to rely on a friend to pay for me on PayPal (and his currency is also weaker than the USD). This is why in principle I never commission people who demand Euros or even worse Pound Sterling. These people don't seem to understand that their currencies have an unfair advantage over everyone else and the USD is only used as a (still unfair) compromise. A rate of "100 words =$1" would in practice become "100 words = $1.5-$3" for me for the reasons I just described. My ideal rate would be somewhere along the lines of "500 words = $1" and my favorite fanfiction author has a rate like that, though even better she takes points. Point commissions preferred Because I don't have PayPal for personal reasons, I prefer paying with points. It's also more fair since DA Points are the same value for everyone on this site. That being said I still prefer not seeing something like "100 words = 100 points" but rather something like "100 words = 80 points" or lower. And I'd especially appreciate someone willing to take a badge to contribute to the payment since I have a shit ton of excess fragments lying around. Willingness to write about anythingToo many times I see writers on this site with restrictions and always ruling things out and this really upsets me since that usually cancels most of my ideas from the start. So a writer who is absolutely willing to write about ANYTHING with no limits (especially if they're a self-proclaimed NSFW writer) would be great for me. Most of my ideas have some level of NSFW as well though a few are SFW. But in general a writer willing to write about anything, especially in terms of unconventional ships and OCs as well as real life people would be perfect. FandomsOccasionally I've found some writers on this site who are willing to write anything and have prices that are fair for me, but simply don't know enough about the fandoms I'm into. So I'd like a writer who'd be more knowledgable and/or is willing to do research. On the other hand, if they're willing to write original fiction it may still work if they're still knowledgeable about the settings and scenarios I'm interested in because for original fiction, there are some scenarios I'm particularly in to that I'd appreciate people being willing to write about but sometimes people aren't aware of them.That being said here's an incomplete list of fandoms I'd commission fanfics for: Pokemon anime (the first 6 generations), Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Star Wars (especially Return of the Jedi), The Lustful Turk, Jungle Girl and the Lost Island of Dinosaurs, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds, Teen Titans (2003), Justice League (2001), Batman Beyond, Superman: The Animated Series, The Jungle Book (1967) and its sequel, Aladdin (1992), The Little Mermaid 2, Westward Ho!, Dragon Quest IX, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Ben 10 (2005), Luigi's Mansion, The Ocean Hunter, Peter Pan (1951), Scooby Doo, Frozen (2013), The Alien Invasion Survival Handbook, De Kiekeboes (mainly volume 39), and Doraemon.As for original stories, what I'd want would usually be historical fiction involving the Islamic slave trade or Orientalism, especially the Ottoman Empire and the Sultanate of Zanzibar; alien abduction fics are another idea, as well as something involving jungle or deep sea wildlife; Somali pirates and modern slavery in Mauritania is another idea. TimeOn one or two occasions, I've found writers on this site who were perfect in all of the points I described above. But they don't get back to me in months or YEARS (and still keep me waiting even now) and thus in practice ripped me off since I've already sent them the payment. So I'd like someone who's at least willing to give me updates every few weeks at most. Granted, this is the only reason PayPal would be better than DA Points since the former would let me launch a claim and demand a refund if they keep me waiting too long. I'd give someone a year at most for the entire fic.So yeah, this was both somewhat of a rant and a set of conditions for the ideal fanfic author I'd want to commission. Like I said I already know someone who more or less fits all of these points but she's on a well deserved break right now. So I'd like someone who'd be willing to write for me and fits all of these points. Also, regarding comic commissions, most of what's written in this journal still applies but with one difference: for comics, my budget is about $50/5000 points at most and I'd like a minimum of 7 pages to tell the whole story (though given my ideas it would probably need more).

Hello, I'm hoping to get critique on this. It would be helpful and thank you. The World As I Know itAs I stepped into the shower, the week that had just passed flooded out of my mind. The warm water washed away the feeling that at any moment all hell could break loose and replaced it with the feeling of a calm, yet restless environment. I just stood in the water, letting it wash over me. The tranquility set my mind and body at ease. I stood facing the inner wall with the gentle pressure falling onto my shoulders. Eventually, the water turned cold and with the heat; my perception of reality left as well. “Are you listening to me? Hello, Blush? Helloooo?” someone was talking to me. “What?” I responded to the annoying voice in my ear. “Are you planning on sleeping all day?” I felt a pair of arms under my own attempt to lift me up. “Come on. You’re too heavy for me to move on my own.” “That’s a lie. Go on without me, I’m taking a nap.” The sound of a hand slamming down on my desk came less than a second after finishing that sentence. It startled me enough for me to sit up. It was Maria, my best friend, and the only person bold enough to give an honest try at waking me up. She was close to my face which made me jump in my seat. “May, what do you want?” May was her nickname. She’s a sweet girl who likes to be friendly with everyone as long as the first thing they ask her about isn’t the black eyepatch on her left eye. She was always sensitive about that. “I want you to take an after-school club or activity. You’re coming with me and I won’t take no for an answer.” I looked up at her and was about to make up an excuse when someone else started talking. “May, don’t bother with her. She’ll just find an excuse to go home and flake on us again.” It was Rosarie. Her, May and I were best friends before high school when we had a falling out I couldn't remember why but, It kept since just before the school year. She also had a habit of calling everyone “Mis” and “Mister” regardless of age. Everyone aside for those she considers friends. “What do you mean ‘flake on us again’? You don’t even deserve an Irish goodbye.” “Har, har, har. The Irish girl that doesn’t deserve an Irish goodbye? Don’t make laugh.” “Come to think about it, aren’t you Scottish?” “Mis Hamlett, you don’t even seem to know what I am.” “Aww, this is the first time you two talked in like a month. Does that mean that the Super Star Squad is back on?” May intervened. Used to call ourselves the Super Star Squad because of our distinct hair colors. Rosarie was a deep redhead May was bright blonde and my hair was pitch black. We each identified as a star and even took it far enough to have a mantra. “You know what? We can settle this right now.” I had gotten up after noticing that the classroom was empty except for us three. “Blush, you’re jumping the gun.” May’s warning landed on deaf ears. “And how do you suppose we do that?” Responded Rosarie. “You too?” said May. “Same as always; we wrestle. The first one on the ground loses. If I win, you shut up for the rest of the day- no, a week as long as you’re around me except those few times where you actually need to say something.” After enough scuffles with other people, we both realized that if we fought with each other, there would be no end so, the one hitting the ground first rule was decided on to mitigate that possibility. “You guys don’t need to do this.” May was still voicing her opinion. “Then, If I win, you go a day- no, a week without your precious earmuffs. That goes for your headphones too.” She knew my weakness as well as anyone. I was always very sensitive about my ears. They come to an unnatural point at the end, so I always hid them in a pair of blue earmuffs or headphones. Whenever they were uncovered in public, I’d turn red in embarrassment. That’s how I got the nickname “Blush”. “You got yourself a deal.” We moved the desks around and made sure the door was locked so that we couldn’t be interrupted. “Are you ready to lose?” “Please stop,” May interjected again. “That’s my line.” Said Rosarie, ignoring May as much as I was. We were on opposite sides of the room, ready to run at each other. “You guys are making me mad.” We both heard her and didn’t heed her warning. “Three, two, one, go,” We said, at the same time before rushing to grapple with each other. As soon as we made contact, we both fell to the ground. We were pushed over by May and she was on top of us. “Hey, what was that for-.” I started before getting cut off. “You both lose.” She stood up and held out her hand. “Earmuffs.” “What? But-.” “Now.” She was mad. It would be difficult, to say the least, to make someone like May mad but we succeeded. “Ok... Here you go.” I took them off and handed them to her. “Headphones too.” “They’re in my jacket pocket.” She reached into my black jean pocket and took out my headphones. “What are you gonna do with them?” I asked. “I’m keeping them,” she said, storing them carefully in her purse. “What? But-.” “You lost, remember?” “She told you-,” Started Rosarie before also getting cut off. “Shh! Not unless spoken to. By me. You lost too.” “But-.” “Shh!” Rosarie looked down on herself, ashamed. “She sure told you- Oww!” May grabbed me by my left ear. “That actually hurts you know.” I reached for her hand to pull it away. “If you pull, It gets worse.” I didn’t contest her. “You’ll get your stuff back when we’re done finding you something to do after school instead of you just taking naps in the classroom to make everyone think you’re doing something. I care about your future and to hell, if you don’t.” “Heh, heh- Ow!” Rosarie started laughing and was shut up with a pinch to the cheek. “I’m sick of you two fighting and bickering all the time. You’re supposed to be friends so, act like it.” “No, I don’t like being forced to socialize with people like her,” I said, folding my arms. “For once, I agree,” Confirmed Rosarie. “If you don’t get along right now.” May leaned in towards the ear she was holding. “I’ll do that thing you don’t like.” Her whispering in my ear alone was enough to send bad shivers down my spine. “And you.” She leaned in and whispered something to Rosarie that made her straighten up and shake her head involuntarily. “Do I make myself clear you two?” “Yes, mom,” I responded. “Rose?” she looked to Rosarie. “It’s hard to argue with sound logic like that.” Responded Roserie “Now, stand up and hug, got it?” We were both sitting on the floor until she let us go. We stood up, facing each other. “Better yet, shake hands. I don’t trust either of you two with a hug yet.” We reluctantly shook hands and followed May out of the classroom and down to the old gym. The old gym was a hub for many after school sports activities. It was also where other clubs advertised themselves. The gym was more than large enough for at least four different clubs to use at once. There were also dividers set up to split the gym evenly and prevent squabbles. They never really worked. “So Blush, see anything you like?” “No.” “Don’t be like that. How about ballet?” “You made me try ballet last time and I didn’t like it remember?” “No, last time, you flaked on us.” She came close to my face. “Remember? And don’t try that ‘I had something to do at home’ excuse. I checked with your mom.” “Hey, how are you just gonna go all the way to the top on me like that?” “Stop flaking and I won’t have to.” She came really close to stomping her foot. “Ok, how about we start by ruling out anything you don’t like.” “I don’t like anything that involves physical activity or thinking,” I said, knowing that most of the clubs involved those exact two things. “Ok, how about the music club, anime club, or book club?” “Book club still requires thinking.” “Not that kind of thinking.” “Touche,” I said, after a moment of reflection. “Besides, If I wanted to listen to music, I’d do it at home. Same for reading, and have you ever heard of a weabu?” “No, what is that?” “I don’t know but, it sounds like a derogatory term for people who watch anime and I don’t want something else for people to call me.” I knew what the term meant and that I didn’t describe me in the least but I was hoping the mention of a derogatory term would persuade her. “But, don’t you watch anime?” She asked, innocently. “You’re a weabu.” I clearly heard it from Rosarie. I was a split second from turning and slapping her in the face. “Rose!” I hadn't heard May yell in a long time and it scared me. We both jumped. “What did I say in the classroom?” “Not to speak unless you speak to me...” “Right so, apologize to Blush.” “Do I have to?” “Yes.” “Sorry, Ms. Hamlett.” “Is that how you address your friends?” “Blush.” “How’s it feel to be bossed around?” I immediately regretted saying that. “Now, Morgan.” The only time she’d call me by my first name is when she was serious. “Yes, ma’am?” I took a half step back. “You know I love you, right?” I tried to take another step back, but she caught me in a hug. “Yeah so, can you let me go?” I knew what she was going to do and it was too late to stop it. She had my arms pinned to my sides and the position was locked in. “No. You know, I’m trying to help you and you keep fighting me on this. It seems like you need all the tuff love I can give.” While saying this, she lifted me up off of the ground and squeezed. “Now, pick a club or I’m just gonna drag you kicking and screaming to ballet with me.” “Ok, I’ll be a weeb and join the anime club now, will you put me down? This hurts.” She let up and stopped squeezing, but didn't put me down. “Hey, Mighty Mouse.” Someone familiar-sounding came walking up. “I thought I heard a commotion. What are you doing here? I thought you had ballet.” “I’m not going today. I’m helping Blush find something to do after school, whether she likes it or not,” Responded May. “Blush? Oh, Morgan.” He moved where I could see him. “What did you to piss off Maria that bad?” He was a little taller than me with blue-dyed spiky hair and dark eyes in fencing gear. His name was Nile and even though they never really acted like a couple, he and May were definitely into each other. “It wasn’t just me. Help.” “Sorry, no can do. It seems like you made your bed in this one.” “If you’re not gonna help then, piss off- uh.” I was squeezed again for a second. “Sorry.” “Man, you really stepped into it this time, huh?” He looked over at Rosarie. “And why do you have such a long face.” She gestured to her throat to communicate that she couldn’t speak. “Why can’t you talk?” She pointed at me and May. “Morgan, what did you do?” “No, I said she couldn’t talk,” Said May, sweetly. “They were fighting again and I intervened this time. Isn’t that right, Rose?” She nodded and kept silent. “They hurt my feelings so they're doing what I say to make it up to me. Isn’t that right, Blush?” “I mean, you’re kinda forcing me to- oww you’re making my elbows dig into my sides. Why are you so strong anyway?” “Because I do ballet. I have to pick up heavier girls than you.” “I see you took off those earmuffs.” Said Nile, rubbing my head. In less than a second, my teeth were bared and his hand was in my crosshairs. With a quick move from May, He just narrowly avoided missing a glove and a finger. “Now, Blush, what did I say back in the classroom?” “You only said that I had to get along with her,” I said, leaning my head towards Rosarie. “Ok, you asked for it. Gimme that ear.” She released one arm to grab at my ear. I took that chance to escape. I purposely hadn’t been squirming up till that point just in case. I quickly wriggled out of her grasp and made way toward the door. Rosarie tried to block it, but she was too late. I was past her before she knew what was happening. I stopped in my tracks after the door closed behind me. I didn’t have my earmuffs or headphones and I wasn’t sure exactly what would happen if May caught me. That girl really doesn’t know her strength so, I had no choice but to hide in the classroom. When they found me, I was sniffling while covering my ears in the corner. I wasn’t crying up till then but, when I heard the two of their voices entering the room, I started. “Blush, is that you?” Cooed May, carefully shifting toward me. I slowly nodded my head. “Were you crying?” I shook my head. “Did I scare you that much?” I nodded. “I’m sorry, I’m not mad at you ok?” I nodded again. “I shouldn't have gotten so mad at you two, to begin with. It’s just that when I see you two fighting, it gets to me, you know?” I nodded again. “I just want things to go back to the way they used to be. When you two were friendly with each other and not at each other's throats.” She gave me an earnest hug. “Come on. Let’s just hang out today. Just the three of us.” “Alright, I get it,” I said, getting up. ”I’m not a fragile snowflake. I didn’t mean to act like one and you know I hate being treated like one. It’s just that my ear still really hurts.” I showed them my ear. “Oh, I’m really sorry. It’s all red and swollen. Here’s your earmuffs back and your headphones.” “I can’t wear either one anyway because it would make my ear hurt more.” I put them both in my bookbag. “Now, how am I supposed to go home?” “Let me see.” Rosarie was the last one I expected to say something. She moved behind me, took out my butterfly hair clip and gently patted what was a loose ponytail down over my ears. “You look totally different now but, at least, your ears won’t show. Mostly.” “Are trying to be friendly?” I asked, vaguely unsure of the answer. “I thought a little goodwill would go a long way. Honestly, I don’t remember why we started fighting to begin with.” “Me neither.” “I know why,” Said May. “I pay close attention to you two. The reason why you two started fighting is that; Rose, you were always the posh and bossy type and Bluh; you were always a rebellious tomboy with a stark dislike for rules and those who enforce them. You two always countered each other and, I was always the mediator detective there to spit facts and put you both in your place. Somewhere along the line, you two became more at odds than before and I wasn’t there to mediate as much.” “You make it sound like a T.V show,” I said, hugging her tightly. “It’s not your fault, trust me, It’s ours. You shouldn’t have to mediate between us anyway.” “It’s true,” Confirmed Rosarie, hugging the both of us. “If I knew I had a flaw like that, I’d have worked to change that and I’m sure Blush would have as well.” “I agree but, when you put it that way, it sounds like it might be your fault for not letting us know our flaws when you thought it might be ruining our friendship.” I continued. “Does that mean that our friendship can set sail?” Asked May. “I’m the red star, blazing across distant seas.” Started Rosarie. “I’m the bright sun, twirling in every horizon!” Continued May, excitedly. “And I’m-” I started, subconsciously. With me being so used to saying it, the words came out on their own. The other two looked at me, knowingly and I continued. “The void of twilight, mystifying mortals in the night.” “And together we’re the Super Star Squad!” We cheered together. “So, where are we hanging out today?” I asked. “Follow us, we’ll take you to a secret place I have in mind,” said May. “May, you can’t just decide that it’s against the rules.” Complained Rosarie. “Screw the rules. That’s your bossiness getting ahead of you,” I said, “So, where is it?” “It’s a secret, so you'll just have to follow us to find out.” Responded May. “Are you sure that’s a good idea? There’s a reason she wasn’t picked.” Rosarie whispered to May. We were already walking outside and down one of the few deserted streets in the neighborhood. All of the houses were boarded up or in complete shambles. May told me to stay around fifteen feet behind them until we got to our destination. “I can hear you, you know,” I spoke up. “It’ll be ok.” Responded May, giving me a thumbs-up behind her back. “But what if it’s not?” Continued Rose. “Then, she’ll be my responsibility.” “More like our responsibility.” “I see we’re in agreement then.” “Whatever.” She sighed. About halfway down the block, they took a turn towards the back yard of one of the houses. Suddenly, a quick breeze whipped by and I scrambled to cover my ears. In doing so, I lost sight of the two. Continuing towards the house they went behind, I got a strong feeling that I shouldn’t have been there. The feeling made me stop and reconsider if I was going the right way. Looking around, the house was the same but, I saw no back door or any entrance in general. None boarded up or makeshift. It was definitely strange. I was literally fifteen feet behind them and they were gone. I began looking around and touching the outside of the house. I came to a spot in the middle next to an old firehose. The same feeling from before struck through me and I backed off. “Stay out,” I said impulsively. It was like the feeling itself had a scripture or a written form and I ‘read’ it if you will. Getting closer, The feeling got stronger and my ears started feeling hot. I touched the wall and they started burning up. I felt like I was just hit with a bad fever. It scared me and the more scared I got, the hotter my ears felt and the more I wanted to know why I was feeling that way. “Stop,” I said, aloud and the sound of glass breaking came from in front of me A doorway sized portion of the wall was gone and replaced by a set of stairs. The negative feeling went away but not the burning of my ears. It actually felt kind of soothing and made the pain I was still in less noticeable. I followed the stairs down and was greeted by voices down a surprisingly clean hallway. The stairs and floor were both light blue and the walls were stone-grey. There were at least five brown doors on each side of the hall leading to a blue one at the end. Creeping toward the only off-color door, the voices became clearer. “It doesn’t matter. You can’t just bring her here because she’s your friend.” It was Nile’s voice. “Though, It’s not like I didn’t see this coming.” “But she might be able to do something. Even if it’s not much.” This time, it was May’s voice. “That’s not the point. She has problems with authority.” He responded. “We can’t afford someone like that.” “He has a point.” There was a new voice. If it was who I thought it was, I was going to punch him in the face. He had the same authority problem that I had. “You said that the only qualifier was outstanding natural abilities. You of all people should know what she’s capable of.” Of all people, Rose was standing up for me. “True, but she’s not the type to take orders or follow rules. How are we supposed to keep her from becoming a liability?” he replied. “Easy.” said May, “She listens to me.” “Fine, she’s both of your responsibilities then,” Said Niles. “Why me too?” asked Rose, as if she didn’t already expect it. “Two pairs of eyes are better than one. Especially on her.” “Does that mean that I can be a part of whatever this is?” I said, opening the door and stepping into the room. The walls and the floor were the same as the hallway except for the carpet, dartboard, multiple different seats, and tables. “How did she get in here?” Whispered the boy hiding behind a door frame to the left at the other side of the room. It was exactly who I thought it was. His name was Mikael. A cousin on my dad’s side. I’d recognize that pale complexion and blue eyes anywhere. “I saw you go over there dumbass!” I called to him. “I also heard you bad-mouthing me.” “Blush, your ears.” May’s eyes widened and seemingly glazed over. “They’re on fire.” “They feel like they’re on fire- wait, you can still see them?” “It’s hard not to.” Rose pulled out a hand mirror. “Look.” My ears were surrounded in flames and my hair was constantly flowing back even though there was no wind. “That’s really cool,” I said, watching as my hair and the flickering flames went different directions based on how I moved my head. “Hey, Morgan,” Niles called to me and I looked up at him. “Catch.” He tossed a wooden sword at me and I caught it. “There’s a button on the handle. Watch your fingers, press it, and concentrate. The flames should go away.” He lifted himself off of the blue sofa in which he sat and began walking toward the same exit that Mikael took. “You can use that for now.” I pressed the button and a blade extended out of what I thought was a blunt edge. It’s weight increased as well. It came from weighing about as much as a stick to as much as a steel pole. It nearly tipped me over but, I just barely held onto it. The blade turned red and my ears stopped feeling so hot. “Oh yeah, and welcome to the Fury Hunter’s Guild.” He stepped out of the door and left me with May, Rose, and a million questions.TO BE CONTINUED

ANYONE WANT FREE CRITS?

So my dastardly brother has decided to make himself of benefit to society by starting a blog wherein he critiques books. He'll mostly focus on self-published authors and beginners rather than doing the works of traditions authors...so basically don't expect him to run around talking smack about George. R. R Martin. Pfft, chicken. Anyway, if you have something that you want critiqued, go ahead and shoot me a note. I'll get it to him. This will be public and might get a little brutal depending on how much he finds, but he won't be mean or derogative and he's actively trying to help. Last thing to know is that these crits won't be book long or even entire chapters worth, he'll pick one or more sections of varying length, edit them and upload.

That should be everything. Feel free to ask questions.
Fare thee well my future friends.

P.S He's been critiquing for several years now, has written several books ( self published) and is widely read so he is somewhat experienced

Hello!

I would like to offer a small job for someone who is over 18 years old (preferably from England, but it's optional) and english must be your native language (because it isn't mine).

I write and illustrate erotic comics, and I'm currently working in a Sherlock Holmes erotic parody, so I need someone who can help me correct and edit the script to make it sound more like the Victorian age. It doesn't have to be extremely accurate but at least I would like it to sound english.

The script is explicit, that's why I need the interested person to be over the legal age (18+). It is a Word document of 8 pages and around 3000 words. 

If anyone is interested please contact me by note to let me know your prices and terms and conditions. I'm very open to negotiation.

Thanks for your time and have a nice day!
