Of Scales and Flesh EpilogueEpilogue
The fog dissipated as the sun rose. The morning dew on the grass shined like silver as the beautiful rays of light shined over the grassy graveyard. Thomas Kalny stood by a young sixteen year old girl. The teen’s hair was a dirty curly blond. Her eyes were a grassy green, and her skin was a little pale. She wore faded blue jeans and a green shirt her leather jacket was a dark brown and her scarf and Converse were red. They both stood in front of a large sculpture of a dragon. The girl went up and read the inscription.
In memory of Lucaus Kristofer Balvair.
For his greatest sacrifice ever.
The girl turned her head to the side. “What was his greatest sacrifice?” She noticed Thomas’s sigh and sniffled “Oh my goodness I am so sorry, I didn’t-” The orange dragon held up a paw.
“That’s okay Karmen you didn’t know.” Thomas gave a smile and laughed. “Lucaus was a crazy human and a very humble dragon. If he d

“Just hold him a little longer.” Thomas encouraged the green dragon as they landed. Rishad’s eyes were watering.
“The Higherrups will see you now.” said a blue dragon. Thomas and Rishad walked in and saw waiting faces.
“Come in,” a voice said with a twinge of annoyance. “why did you request a meeting with the council?”
“Um well,” Thomas said nervously as he walked up to the row of five dragons. The middle one was a magnificent gold dragon that had age to himself. The two to his right were a dark brown they looked like twins. The green dragon to the far left looked younger than the other Higherrups he also looked like he was related to Rishad. The dragoness in between the gold dragon and the green dragon was a teal-ish green.
“Um… Rishad and I have um we uh…”
“Spit it out young one we haven’t all day.” the dragoness instructed.
“We found him.” Thomas said

Rishad gave a heavy sigh. “Well, you are entitled to know.” he paused and took a breath motioning for Thomas to sit down and for Lucaus to pay attention. “A long time ago, in what you would call medieval times, there was a great evil that threatened to destroy and enslave all life as we would have known it. Dragonkind and mankind formed an alliance to face the evil. It wasn’t enough, so the wizards of both courts decide to postpone the darkness by encasing it in a Continuum Time Crystal. The wizards said that the crystal will break when the one of Scale and Flesh appears. They said that only the son of a dragon and human could possess the power to destroy the great evil.”
“Okay so I’m suppose to save the worlds from endless destruction.” Lucaus said cooly. Rishad nodded his head. “Now the only thing I am confused on is this. Who is Malbron?”
“I’ll explain that.” Thomas said cutting in. “Short

It was a sunny day as Thomas Kalny sulked by a stream. “No one appreciates me.” The 8 foot dragon grumbled. Thomas looked at his 16 foot orange body’s reflection. His wings were tucked into his body making himself look semi wingless. He had red spikes that ran from his head down his back to his tail. He had four horns two on each side of his head.
“Not even Rishad wants me to stay with the class today.” Thomas scowled. “Why did he even send me out here anyway?” The dragon kicked a rock, he heard a smack as if it hit something and then a grunt. Thomas looked up to see a jumbled heap. He rushed towards it.
“Are you o-” Thomas stopped mid sentence as he rolled the heap over. His eyes were wide saucers. “A-a human.” the orange beast shook his head to regain his composure. “Rishad!” he yelled as he picked up Lucaus’s body. Thomas then noticed the humans condition seeing the wound in his arm and th

Lucaus ran for his life.
“Where are you Lucaus?” came an evil voice above the tree foliage. Lucaus pumped his legs harder trying to get away
“Lucaus,” Rishad’s voice appeared out of nowhere. “get to the cliff!” his voice advised. The running boy turned and ran into a grassy clearing with a cliff at the end of it.
“There you are!” Leasah’s voice was filled with menacing glee. Lucaus bolted for the cliff as the dark purple dragon landed behind him. “You die now!” she yelled reeling her head back. The boy was three feet away from the side of the cliff when Leasah whipped her head forward, releasing a wall of fire and death towards Lucaus.
Rishad’s voice was calm and collected. “Jump.”
“What?!” Lucaus shrieked.
“Jumped now!” Rishad said more pleading.
“I hope you know what you are doing.” the boy crouched down and lept.
Suddenly the air at the end of the

Lucaus stood there in the bathroom with a new wave of confusion washing over him like a wave on the sand. “Prophecy?” he whispered to himself. There was an urgent knock on the door followed by Karren’s voice.
“You need to get out if there now.” she exclaimed. Lucaus dried off his hands and opened the door. He was greeted by a worried and alert blond. “Quick we haven’t got much time.” she whispered motioning for Lucaus to follow her.
“What’s going on?” Lucaus whispered back and just as if his question was being answered there was a banging at the front door. The door suddenly flew open revealing a young feminine looking that held a very familiar voice.
“I’ll search the house you search outside.” the voice commanded two large shadows. “Malbron wants the boy destroyed.”
Lucaus’s eyes went wide in disbelief. Karren then pulled him into a large area with a concrete floor.
Swapped - Chp. 4 - A Dream That Changed it AllXephos was dreaming too, but not about Minecraft. He dreamt of a town. No, bigger than a town, a city! Technology everywhere, cars, and people walking... It was the biggest city he’d ever seen in a long time.
He was walking, looking around, unsure of why he was dreaming of this strange place tonight. Typically dreams were of his home world, of his past, the life that he left behind for the new one he has now. Though this city did resemble something like the one on his planet, maybe it was. Who knew?
Suddenly the terrain started to change, about halfway through the city. It turned into a much more familiar environment, he was... back in Minecraftia? But that made no- oh well... it was a dream. Better to go with it and not ask questions, right?
Suddenly though, coming his way was... himself? “What the-”
He- the other Xephos, stopped in place, prompting him to do the same. “Who are you?” One called out to the other.
“I could ask you the same question. W
Swapped - Chp. 5 - Awakening (updated)Xephos looked around the strange room before he slowly pushed the covers off him and got out of the bed, sitting on the side of the mattress. “Where…. the hell am I?” He ran a hand through his hair, pushing it into it’s swept back look. The windows in the room were open, letting the light in. Slowly standing, his legs shaky underneath him, he walked over the the window, gripping onto the seal to keep his balance. “Oh… my god…” Xephos’s mouth fell open some, his eyes wide as he looked at the city before him… the city that he dreamt of last night.
-Beep beep- -beep beep-
Xephos whipped around at the sound, his hand reached over his shoulder where his sword would have been, but it wasn’t. His gaze fell on the nightstand, where there was a small square device, it’s screen was lit with things appearing on it.
He slowly walked over to it, on constant alert in case something jumped at him. Reaching out at arm
Community Service (GT): Chapter 3Elio’s POV
After tidying up a bit, I turned back to the small human lying on my pillow. I had tried to distract myself from the small, unconscious girl by cleaning but I obviously failed. Her presence weighed in on my mind, and I couldn’t push it away any longer. I gave in, kneeling beside the bed to examine the small, young human. She looked like a girl’s doll, so limp and life-less against the white cotton of the pillow.
I felt my chest clench in a strange way—the “doll’s” face looked so realistic, so perfectly detailed. I could see the creases in her clothes, her scarred flesh. Kneeling down beside the bed, I found myself slowly moving closer to the figure, until I could see the stitches in her shirt, the way her eyes flickered underneath her eye lids. I was acutely aware of the way my breath made the miniscule strands of hair flutter slightly. Never before had I felt so huge, so massive. I held my breath, feeling like a giant as I st
Rise of the Republic, Chapter 1 'Halved'Chapter 1
As the echos of pony trots could be heard from within the dense forest around them, the Whiteout Tomb moved hastily along the road of mixed mud, dirt and melting snow slush. Their breath was thick, moist and warm against the thin, cold air. Small, hazy specks in the air lightly kissed the soft, fine fur of the three ponies, walking along side the forest path. The pony leading in front of the other two was a light tan, bleach blonde and light green haired mare. Her horn was decorated with a silver tangle of swirls, and among the swirls dotted small finely cut purified emeralds. She bares a small overhanging cloak that covers her shoulders, attached to that is a hood, which covered the rest of her angelic face. Her clothe, spun of an evergreen color, the rims laced with gold. A silver piece clasped a green leaf ornament, of which bore the same swirls and emeralds as her horn, held her low hanging cap i
The Katana's songWhen a friendship is born through rivalry it is forged in the hottest of fires. Bent and tempered time and again. Each fold a new level of respect, each layer a closer bond.
Perhaps to the world outside this is not seen. As it is the feud that is so loudly projected, but no. The surface my be raging, but the calm beneath is that of an eternal friendship.
Their are none who understand this bond better then the hearts of warriors. Souls who hunger for rivalry, for challenge, for the betterment of body and mind. Souls who, in there deepest and darkest depths long for peace and companionship, but no not how to achieve such.
And so they wear their hearts into battle, standing strong and creating a bond like none other. A bond born of the will to survive, the will to fight again. The will to see the sun rise tomorrow.
And so, there are two bonds that should never be broken.
The rivalry that drives them in each day, the friendship of a soul who understands even the deepest reasons of yo
FearsGypsee x Caidan
Gypsee bolted back across the Blutwald territory, tears stinging her face as she fled through the darkness. As soon as Ivan had completely left, Gypsee had lay shaking where she was for a few minutes, before scrambling to her feet and running. A cold shiver ran down her spine, as if someone was watching her..... As if Ivan was watching her. She faltered in her step slightly and she nearly fell over but regained her balance, before coming to a large oak in the middle of Blutwald, leaning against it and finally letting her tears fall. What was she going to do????
He had been hunting when the unmistakable scent of his mate laced the air. With a smile, Caidan paused to take a deep breath. He would find some roe deer for her tonight, she would enjoy that. But as he inhaled her pleasant aroma, the young wolf realized something was very

You rite it off just from being tired you had a long day at work and ready to get some shut eye. Text message, it reads 'Tick tock tick tock the bell is about to ring.' You deleted it thinking some kind of spam message from unlisted number, trying not to focus on it. As you pass by the school its bell rings, louder than usual. Another text from the same number, it reads, 'The bell has rung, the games begun, a train will pass into an awful crash.'

Anna was walking to corridor. Rex noticed her.
"Hey, Anna. Was so fun... It's should have been seen..." He smiled.
Anna was so angry.
"What's wrong?" Rex asked.
"I'll go from here." She said.
"What? You really want to leave Providence?" He was upset.
"Yes..." She was cold.
"But... If you really want it... No, I don't want that you go..."
"You don't stop me, Rex." She said, go away from him a bit.
"No, don't leave me..." He reaching (or pulled his hand) to her.

The AnnouncementGypsee x Caidan
Gypsee watched out over Blutwald from her favourite hill, her tail wagging wildly from side to side. She knew Caidan would be here soon, and she had some pretty big news to tell him. What would usually have been a quiet and calm morning was now too slow for her as she impatiently paced to and fro, her tail still wagging. The birds seemed to call extra loudly this morning, almost as if sensing her excitement and feeding off her energy.
She and Caidan were stronger than ever and this was the natural next step. He will be happy, she told herself. At least she really really hoped he would be. The sun was just a out to rise, so the morning air was still slightly chilly, and the far side of the forest was still a dark blue, not yet being touched by the suns rays as the silver she wolf howled out to her ma
Of Scales and Flesh: Chapter 5Chapter 5
Lucaus’s room was a decent side area. There was a closet in the back corner of the bedroom. A tall cherry wood dresser was in the center of the opposite wall to the bed. Lucaus’s bed had blue covers with a red pillow the frame was brown. A window sat in the wall at the back of the room. The walls were a dark shade of blue.
Lucaus laid on his back in his bed in deep thought, looking at his pendant.
“Why was that shrink so interested in my pendant, and why did she look so familiar?” Lucaus took a deep breath trying to calm his n=confused mind. “Leasah freaked out when I showed her my pendant.” Lucaus scrunched his face. “It’s not like her to act like that. she looked as if it was an end to a great plot.”
The boy looked deeply at his pendant and noticed a faint glow in it. He sat up to get a closer looking he could make out some faint blue, red, and tan colors swirling around inside.
“What the heck?!” Lucaus stood
Parenting for Sex AddictsThe half-day.
We are not those folks that need an occasion to try. And that’s what they call it, too. Trying. As if the very idea of it is taxing. It’s not taxing and we are not those people.
No. We do not go by some magical calendar. Schedules aren’t really our thing in general. That’d be too organized. Too stuffy. Too… I don’t know… too planned. And we’re not the type of people whom plan.
If we could—plan—our lives would be much different. I think. It’s hard to say because this is how we’ve always been.
Our very togetherness is a result of impulse. I’m almost certain that the amount of time it took us to decide to move in together was significantly shorter than the amount of time it took us to remember each other’s names. We might have had our first conversation moments after that first… what I mean to say is we didn’t plan. Because planning would have been much t
