Rays of Hope Pt XXVII The next week went by in a hurry. The Emperor, having reassurance I was on his side, declared that he would not comply with any of Humanity’s demands while they still intended harm upon his people. By the end of that week, skirmishes had already popped up. So far, the Empire had the lead. In every skirmish, our superior ships had destroyed the numerous and varied ships of their foes. I knew that wouldn’t last long if the Axis Alliance brought its full power to bear.
I knew that Humanity was putting enormous pressure on the Kekkei and Randan to force them to side against the Empire, but they were still only getting miniscule help. The Humanity Coalition even had the audacity to try and force the Partisk to intervene on their behalf. To say the least, the Partisk refusal was swift, and absolute.
If this continued, the Partisk might have to join in, so they mobilized their fle
Rays of Hope Part XXVI When I woke the next day, I heard quite the commotion outside. Opening the blinds, I saw a multitude of humans with signs, demanding I come out. I scowled. So word had gotten around that a Bahamut was here, eh? Putting on my clothes, I headed out to face this crowd. As soon as I appeared, they began screaming insults and threats. I ignored them, and walked past the guards who were standing between me and the mob. As they moved in on me, I opened my eye, and made them back down.
As the insults kept flying my way, so too did objects. Rocks, garbage, and various other items. In a booming voice, I said, “Be gone, humans...” I saw one of them was a cameraman, and a reporter was next to him. “I’ve no interest in your petty excuses to assault my people. If you continue in this action, I will defend myself with my FULL power. I will show no mercy.
Rays of Hope XXV I was slightly surprised to see that the Kekkei had created a resort so quickly. It was doubly so, on a hostile planet not ideal for such a resort. It was mostly desert, and barren, rocky cliffs. It did have shrubs, and bushes, but, for the most part, it was dusty, sandy, and rocky. The resort, however, was placed in a more temperate climate. More grasslands and plains than anything else. Some of it was due to terraforming, but, for the most part, it was natural. After a little pestering, I gave in to Tara and Lacey’s demands.
With resounding cheers, they began getting ready. Then, along came the father’s nightmare of having his little girls run about in string bikinis at the pool. The same pool that would have boys that were interested in one thing only. At least, that was the line used by all dads. I knew my girls were more than strong enough to handle themselves, but
Rays of Hope Pt XXIV (Intermission) Realizing it was dark outside, your captain had your squad set up camp, and posted guards at the entrance. You were to sleep, as your next trick as guard would be the next night. With sufficient guards and various other preventative measures placed, the rest of your squad, and you, fell asleep.
When morning came, you all set out, having washed up and cleaned your rifles. Taking the orb with you, as specified by the captain, the group of you began your taxing trek across the jungle planet to find the next spot I’d hid an orb. You hoped it wouldn’t take too long. You could feel the eyes of predators upon you wherever you went. The others voiced this, and the captain nodded. He’d noticed their increase in activity, as well.
Luckily enough, they never bothered you, and besides a few scares with small herbivores, you never encountered any resistance or animals. Findi
Rays of Hope Pt XXIII Today was the day. Dressing in some nondescript, but obviously Bahamutian clothing, which could only be described as militant, but comfortable for all types, I made my way out. Kissing Emily and the girls, I left them to their own devices as I set out. No weapons, as Raz had specified a Bahamut killing them. No armor, as it would a defining feature in finding the Bahamut who killed them. Changed my hair color and style to a light blonde and morphed it into a standing hairstyle, rather than its usual slicked back and brown.
My clothing was that of a deep, dark red trench coat, with tailcoats, which flapped annoyingly as I walked, as if they were trying to draw attention, a tight, black shirt, emblazoned with the symbol of the Bahamutian Empire, and some black dress pants. Though I hated the tailcoat of my trench coat, I knew that it also work to my advantage. Someone making lots of noise normally wasn
Rays of Hope Pt XXII That ‘night’, I couldn’t sleep. Questions kept bouncing about my brain like so many annoying balls of energy. Unable to sleep, I left my wife in bed, and walked to the Observation Room. There, I confronted the questions I could, and pondered the others. Why did it have to be a Bahamut who did it? Why me, and not Raz ripping the human apart with his power? Wouldn’t that be easier? If not, why wouldn’t it be? Would I kill his wife and daughter, too? Should I kill them? If not, what do I do with them? How would I escape the authorities? What long-reaching repercussions would this have on the Humanity Coalition, and the Bahamutian Empire? If it came to war, would the Empire call upon me? Would the Coalition, or rather, Micaiah? If they both did, which one would I choose? Would siding with my kind make the war come out in our favor? If not,
Rays of Hope Pt XXI Once we arrived in the system, I wasted no time in hailing the base. “Hey. I was wondering when you all would get back” “You fuckers. You didn’t send me the coordinates when your base was being moved!” The Comms Officer shrugged, smirking. “You found it anyway, right?” “Yeah, through the help of the Partisk Royal Navy” The Kekkei sucked in air through her teeth, hissed a bit, her ears pinned back. “Yikes... Is your ship okay?” “Yeah, but I think I might’ve aged 20 years...” She giggled, and directed me to the space port.
Upon getting on the ground, I sent them along to the base, and followed, after obtaining a few things for my ship. Need to keep it up-to-date, you know? Anyway, I eventually arrived, and gave the mercenary company my recommendations. They took this all in stride, thanked
Rays of Hope Pt XX Going over the ratings for the group, I got a few scowls. They’d expected to do better, but I wasn’t easy to please. The group overall, however, was a pass. Circumstances and the like helped their score, of course, but… Since when did that really matter? After they had their sedated celebration of victory, they continued with their meal, until they finished what they wished to eat.
Sending them off to their rooms to rest and recuperate, I discussed the next part with my wife. They had passed all my tests. That meant it was time for them to go back from whence they came. I didn’t feel like I wanted to get rid of them, but I was still doing a job, and therefore, it was time to complete it. Setting the course in the Navigational Computer, I sent us hurtling through space towards the camp where we first started.
Problem was, we didn’t see what was
The Battlefield Flowers Pt 2 Battlefield Carnation
Seeing the foe before them, each army prepared. Weapons were loaded, equipment checked, and vehicles examined. The weary feet of the infantry spurned into action by the sounds of approaching enemies, they all spread out and took cover, knowing that, for better or worse, this battle was the last. The Armies of Heaven and Hell advanced, as their commanding officers gathered their weapons and equipment, preparing to head for the front lines. Both armies stopped at 100 yards from each other, the planes of each circling the battlefield.
With all forces awaiting the order to fire, the lessened noise gave way to the sounds of clashing blades. As the officers reached th
Kickstarter Ransom"Hrrpmrpm!" A dark haired pro female soccer player grunted out as she wore a bright green and black combination soccer uniform and she was carried into safe house by two goons who had the audacity to kidnap her during a live game. Despite being on the field along with all the other teams, security and the thousands of fans they somehow made off with her which the action was witness by millions.
"And there you go." A slim short guy said as his tall partner bound the female known as Amber to a chair with rope as more bound her wrists, knees and ankles. A thick knotted white cloth kept her gagged as she was secured into the simple wooden chair. "Good job Josh, now for part two of our plan."
"I still don't know about this Nick, will this really work?" He asked over Amber's grunted struggles as Nick pulled himself up to a computer which had a kickstarter new funding page on it.
"Of course Josh, you got to stay up to date with kidnappings and ransoms and what better way to ransom a famous so
A sad little dragon (working title)Some time ago, a blue dragon with green horns hatched out of a blue egg with green spots. He had a very big family, with lots of uncles, aunts, and many cousins. But he only had one sister; a purple dragon with red horns. The little blue dragon also had a Papa and a Momma, both of whom he loved very much.
But when the blue dragon was only beginning to learn to walk on his chubby little legs, his Momma dragon got sick. It wasn't a sickness you could see, like the measles or the chickenpox. Momma dragon changed, in a very scary way. She was angry, and mean to the other dragons. And one day, when the little blue dragon woke up, his momma was gone. All of the adults were very sad, especially Papa dragon.
"Where is Momma?" Asked the little blue dragon.
"She flew away, little dragon." Papa said.
"Where did she go?" Asked the little blue dragon.
"To a place very far away, where little dragons can never fly to."
The little blue dragon never saw his momma again. And he was sad.
Years went by, a

We pulled up into the driveway and got out. I could see (name) was wincing in pain. I'm still a little surprised that she's able to walk around with broken ribs...props to you (name).
We entered the house, "hey...can I wait down here?" She asked quietly. "Of course, I'll go get da stuff~!" I said hopping up the stairs. I quickly grabbed the medicine and went back downstairs. Though she wasn't there. "(Name)??" I said. No answer. "(Name)?!" I said again getting a little worried. I ran into the kitchen then out of the corner of my eyes I saw (name) doubled over in pain. "Oh my god! (Name)!" I ran over to her and felt her forehead and it was boiling hot. "Come on! I'm taking you to the hospital." I scooped her up and ran to my car and gently placed her in the passenger seat. As I was driving I quickly looked at her and her face was red and she was sweating and struggling to breathe. "Hang in there (name)! Your gonna
Adobe Slabs Segment 3
A glass dish clanked against the cold metal sink. M fumbled to catch it. A pause in the conversation led M to believe the others probably stopped to look over at him. That, or because Billy had taken another long swig of beer. M couldn't be sure; he tried to play it off like nothing happened.
Billy exhaled. “She’s at home with my mom. She's been napping around this time every day lately. It works for me so I didn’t wanna break that habit.”
"Oh! That's convenient! A little disappointing though, I was hoping to meet her..."
“Daughter?” M said quietly, thinking it to himself more than anything.
All at once the three guests looked over at M.
"Like... Daughter, daughter?" M asked.
"Um." Billy started.
Virus - VT Series - #2: The UniversesWhile the three other siblings stared in shock, Bethany was the only one who pulled herself out of surprise to explain everything. She told them where they lived, who they were and about the YouTube channel. Like to her character, Gertrude managed to describe where they were.
‘We’re in a world called Garry’s Mod. Not this ‘Earth’. You said we’re in a game, yes? Well, that’s a real universe. Each game created has its own universe. And this is ours. Funny thing is, ours is right next to yours. That’s why we can see you so clearly.’
‘But how come you can see us?’ Bethany asked.
Gertrude shrugged. ‘Still figuring that out, honestly.’
Mature as she was, she was also gifted with not just kindness but intelligence too. She turned round to Papa and said, ‘If we can open the portal fully, then it’ll let them get into our universe. Maybe they can help with the-,’ she raised her eyebrows, hiding what e

Hey everyone! I just wanted to apologize on how late this chapter is…..seriously.

Strongly based on the anime Princess Jellyfish and no, I will not be simply rescripting the anime I’m only basing the plot line around it, loosely at that.

The smell of gas hung in the air, it’s strong yet pungent scent causing my nose to scrunch up slightly. It reminded me too much of the city, I didn’t like it, it made me miss my small countryside abode.

Beyond and Within Chapter 3
"J-join the Survey Corps?"
Levi hummed in response, nodding his head at the same time. You looked down at the floor, thinking about what the Corporal just said. The question was so sudden, you felt like she didn't have time to think about it. If you did join, the house you lived in for her entire life would be left behind, abandoned to rot. But if you didn't, you would have to spend the rest of your time in splendid isolation from the rest of the world, waiting for visitors that rarely pass by.
"You don't have to answer right now," Levi added, after seeing the trouble you was having. "But we don't have much time."
"How much time do I have?"
You nodded in agreement. You felt the Corporal glance at you, before he got up and walked away. The sound of the door opening creaked th

As her husband healed in the Konoha medical center, Kakashi was appointed to be her personal escort. She slept in his room with him watching over her.
Zelda: (Wakes up and stretches) Hmm? (Looks at a sleeping Kakashi) Even heroes need sleep... (gets up and heads to the bathroom to take a shower)
Kakashi: (gets up) Well, that was a nice nap... (notices Zelda is gone) Oh, shit... (Hears the shower turn on) Oh... good... (gets dressed)
Zelda: (Comes out of the shower dressed in her Shiekah clothes) Ah, your awake, Kakashi?
Kakashi:Yep, never slept once! (Smiles, Kakashi style)
Zelda: You were when I woke up...
Zelda: Don't worry, I won't tell on you. (Smiles at him) Shall we go?
Kakashi: Sure... (head out into the streets) Where to?
Zelda: Could I go see my husband?
Kakashi: Sure, follow me... (heads for Konoha Medical Center)
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
