The moment we’re back in the apartment, I’m on my bed with Felix sitting beside me while Thorn fetches some medical supplies. I didn’t even know they had medical supplies. The knife is still in my shoulder and I groan in pain as my back lies against the bed, the blade shifting in between my muscles. My blood has drenched most of my shirt and though the bleeding is now slow, I feel the affections of my blood loss. I’m dizzy and irritable. I want to sleep, but that isn’t a good idea.
“You couldn’t have taken the knife out a while ago,” I growl through my teeth. Talking only makes the pain worse, but I feel like complaining. Either one of them got seriously injured.
“No,” he replies simply, lifting my head up and placing another pillow behind it. “But keeping the blade in, it slows the bleeding and stops the diseases in the air. The last thing you need is this wound becoming infected.”
“You could have been a little gentler when you were carrying me,” I sneer.
He pulls out a small knife, placing it on the broken dresser beside the bed. “We were sort of in a hurry. Anyways, it’s good for you to go through a little pain. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, right?”
I frown. “I really don’t like you.”
Thorn walks into the room, laughing coldly. “I think that’s the first time a girl has ever said that to you, Felix.” She set a bag of stuff on the dresser, pulling things out one at a time.
“You say that all the time,” Felix argues.
She pulls out a bottle of what looks…

This is a story about a man named Cross Lambert.
“Hey Cross, aren’t you excited? You’re going to get your first command soon?”
“I don’t know Galius. I have been a lieutenant for so long, I don’t know how the men are going to adjust to my promotion.”
“Everyone knew you were going to be the next captain and you have many supporters, amazingly. You’re the perfect example for a high-ranking officer.”
“You follow orders to the letter and you are a devout follower of Zenith and the men…
The year is 2012. 7 years. It’s been a gruesome 7 years without Adeline. It’s all my fault. I killed her. The anger in my voice is what pushed her over the edge, literally. I let out a groan as I punched the bedroom wall that already had many holes as a result of my anger. The bedroom was littered with clothes of women. This was the only thing that eased the pain. Killing. It gave me such a thrill. Something about the way the blood would pour out, how they would beg for their lives, and oh,…
It's been a couple of hours, and I was still in the living room watching SpongeBob, but I wasn't really paying much attention. I was rethinking my decision on trusting Vanoss. I mean sure! He seems like a nice guy, but I learned that things aren't always what they seemed. I sighed, and got up from the couch to turn off the television, wondering if my friends are having the same problems. I sat back down on the couch, listening to the silence of the quiet living room. My mind begin to wonder how…

Sasha knew walking home alone at night was risky, but she had no other option. Her phone had died a few hours ago and there was no way she would be able to hail a cab. So she continued on her way, anxiousness steadily rising within her. She knew this street was risky for the LGBTQ+ community, knowing many hate…
“Jason, would you be kind enough to take me back to my car before it gets towed away” asked Ginny?
“Sure you don’t want to walk and get some exercise” he teased, “you’re looking like you haven’t been doing much of that lately.”
“If you don’t like it, I won’t come back” Ginny teased right back at him!
“Speaking of coming back, how about tonight” he asked hoping to get a “Yes”.
“Oh, I really wish I could, but remember Pam, my sister? She’s coming in from Chicago today. Chances…
I Need You Now
“I Need You Now,” by Lady Antebellum, was featured in the 2012 film Zero Dark Thirty, and it was used in television series such as Hellcats and The Glades. The song tells a realistic story about a man and a woman who loved each other, but their pride kept them apart. In the beginning, the woman sings about all of the "Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor" (line 1,2). All of the perfect things they've done together, came to an end. She missed him, and now she's…
Blacking in and out, confusion and fear filled my mind as I slowly woke up lying on my back between my four-wheeler and the cold ground. I was numb; my mind was racing “what just happened?” All in the matter of seconds. I hear a faint yelling of some sort as I close my eyes again. “Kylie!” I open my eyes; everyone around me was moving the four-wheeler from off top of me, and my step dad and his friend trying to wake me up. My eyes closed.
It was a mid January morning in 2012; I was 15 years…
“You would need to go back to Elspeth’s Castle and steal one of her potion.” said Maurice.
“Elspeth’s Castle? Why do I need to go there?” asked Nomi.

She had begun to use a spell to bring forth the forces of the well, but as she was casting her spell something went wrong. There was a big explosion that surrounded her.
