Gap Year: Chapter 6It was Tuesday afternoon and Enzo was on lunch duty.
After calling his mum for twenty minutes in order to note down her trademark pasta recipe word-for-word, including serious culinary Q&A's plus repeats, he spent half an hour only vaguely following the recipe due to his keen desire to "experiment with flavours", and finally managed to scrape together a sufficiently edible dish, which we ate in good humour (with lots of cheese, to overpower the slightly bizarre choices of herbs).
"I reckon it's pretty good," Enzo declared biasedly.
"Yeah no, considering you've never cooked anything more complex than frozen goods up until now, I'd say it's a winner," Sean granted, stabbing a heavily sauced bow and popping it into his gob. His mouth only slightly puckered as the excessive black pepper cut through the cheese and hit the back of his throat.
"I mean, the seasoning's kinda off but it's not bad," Hannah added truthfully.
Enzo swallowed hard and retorted, "What are you talking about? The seaso

Edge of the Cliff"Guys don't!" Nathaniel yelled at the top of his voice, "Don't do it - I swear!" he whipped his head around, his eyes wide with panic. A tall girl with tanned skin and long light brown hair stood behind him. She met his gaze with equally horror-stricken eyes. "Reiya - say something!" he urged.
"Say what? If you can't stop them than neither can I!" tears sprung to her eyes. "I'm so sorry."
Nathaniel turned back slowly, heart pounding, breath ragged in his throat.
In painful silence, he watched the two figures of his best friends Greg Farrel and Wilfred Williamson race towards the edge of the steep knife-edge of the cliff. They'd talked about doing this for ages. In fits of anger, in humour, indifference, threat. But Nathaniel had always managed to talk them out of it. Always. Except this time.
"We can't just stand here and do nothing," he whispered hoarsely.
"What?" Reiya stuttered, "You're not going to - "
"I have to!" Nathaniel answered shortly, his voice rising in a trembling passion
Gap Year: Chapter 5After a minute of running through quicksand - or so it felt - Nelle and I finally broke through the park and into the more natural darkness of the world beyond.
My heart was beating fast, and I don't think it was from the run. It's funny how quickly us humans go through emotions: now that we were safely out of harm's way, I kicked myself inwardly for getting so spooked over - over what? I didn't even know what had actually happened, except that Nelle screamed. The case could very probably have been that a moth strayed into her face and she didn't take it well.
I felt Nelle's hand wriggle with protest in mine before I realised that I was still holding tightly onto it.
"Sorry," I said, letting go and feeling like even more of a loser-wimp. "Reflexes."
"Huh," Nelle answered with what I supposed was meant to be a light-hearted chuckle but came out like a sharp sigh (of relief, maybe).
As we passed under a street light I glanced at her, and could see from her face that she was pretty rattle
Helping Hands (Chapter 1)
“A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark’d, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;
Mark’d how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;
Ever unreeling them—ever tirelessly speeding them.
And you, O my Soul, where you stand,
Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing,—seeking the spheres, to connect them;
Till the bridge you will need, be form’d—till the ductile anchor hold;
Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my Soul.”
I smiled to myself as I read the beautiful poem by Walt Whitman. I simply loved poetry…I would write it myself, but then feel downcast when I read the work of an even better poet. I flipped through the pages to find another poem by Whitman while my other hand reached out for a pen and paper. I took a swig of my tea and sighed, leaning back against the wall of the l
MG movie: Battle of Candor Citadel 6Thomas meets Madara
Thomas chasing MAdara only a barrage of Kunais was coming from the air before deflecting it with his wings. He saw Madara on the tree
"Hello Thomas." He jumped down to the ground meeting face to face.
"Madara Uchiha." Thomas said
"Thomas Dralada." Madara said, "Why are you working with the Evil Organization.?"
"I'm only working for them part time until we get the final key." Madara told the dragon halfa, "Terrence has a good team, but him as leader, He's not as strong as I thought."
"What did you do him?" Thomas demanded
"I did nothing, he tried to take me down, but he couldn't make a single scratch on me." Madara Uchiha said, Although some special people was able to keep up with me."
Thomas was going to fight him, madara raise his hand, "Save your strength for the real fight, once Tezoth is freed from his tomb, he'll rule the world as king."
Madara leaves through the forest. Thomas turned to them running.
later back at the castle, Thomas was on the throne which the
Prolouge Careful what you wish forYou might have seen me before, but not noticed me. I can’t say I blame you since you wouldn’t listen anyway. But really, I don’t blame you. After all, only the pretty get noticed. The only time someone spots me they think I am disgusting. It’s a bit on the extreme side but I can see where they are coming from. It doesn’t help that my mum keeps telling me to find someone already. Though I have constantly told her that she will never
have grandkids, she never listens.
In the stories, I will meet someone who will give me a makeover and help me get the man of my dreams. Who then in turn falls in love with me, not for my looks but my inner beauty. We then get married and live happily ever after. However, this is not an anime or comic. This is real life, that really sucks. You know what they say, life is a bitch.
I know I should take pride in myself but how can I? I mean come on! Everything about me is below average. My green eyes are dull and almost lifeless ju
Out of the Ashes ~ chapter 7"Just make sure they don't see or hear you. Take out all of them. We need to secure the place as best as possible if we're going to live here long." Mitch whispers as he holds his knife out and steps in front of the group. I look over at Bear and Rogue and put my hand out and point down. Instantaneously, they lie down and become invisible in the long grass, especially Rogue who blends in. Mitch puts his back to a tree and looks out and we all run behind something for coverage, all accept Alex who sighs and strings his bow with an arrow.
"Screw that." he pulls back the arrow and closes one eye focusing on the walker roaming around in front of us with others, probably looking for food. About 15 begin to huddle. I'm guessing even they're running out of food. Much like us it seems.
Alex let's go a long, high-pitched, and loud whistle escape his lips and watches as all the walkers turn around to face him. He smirks and lets the arrow fly out of his grasp and into the head of a female
State of Decay (Epilogue: Renewal)[Despite their escape from the Alpha Quarantine compound with all but Miles on-board, they could only be afforded a short period of respite before further work had to be done.There was a kingdom to restore, an entire nation requiring de-roboticization, and then the subsequent repair re-colonisation of the Acorn Kingdom. Order had to be established, society still needed to reform...and bodies still needed to be buried. There was a full decade of the dead to be interred, and the Freedom Fighters were not exempt from this sombre task.]
Sonic: Ya know, it still doesn't feel like ten years until you look at the coffins...
Sally: I should imagine it feels shorter for us because of our... circumstances.
Lightning: No, it's all of us; it just all happened way too fast.
Nicole: I can't say I agree there... but then again, I don't sleep, so everything feels longer to me.
Sally: I feel like today is going to take forever though.
Nicole: It's never easy when it's even one person...
