Fox and the Girl: Part 1The trees, looming and casting shadows over the river, were vivid in colors. Most of the leaves were ready to fall to the ground, but still maintained a light grasp on the branches. Coming here during this time of the year relaxed me. I leaned against one of the trees and allowed myself to slide down until I was sitting.
All the grass in the area had changed to a dry yellow. I closed my eyes, and listened to the river’s dull hum. I took in a deep breath and could almost taste autumn. After a moment of listening to the river, I heard some leaves rustle somewhere in the distance. I glanced around and my eyes widened as they settled on the copper-colored beast.
The fur-covered beast was standing only a few feet away from me; it seemed to be a fox, but much larger. Under normal circumstances, I think I might’ve been scared; its eyes gave off a peaceful warmth with their amber glow. I would’ve fled just at that moment had it not been for the mere size and peculiarity of th
Fox and the Girl: Part 2The amulet fell into my hands from the beast’s teeth. There was another flash, the same psychic imagery as before, but not quite as strong; the colors were less vivid; the images from before had sprung to mind, accompanied by a tumult of emotion.
I wondered now how to communicate with the beast. I opened my mouth to speak, but decided better of it after a moment; instead, with my eyes shut, I formed an image of my favorite place. It was a small opening in the forest, covered in moss and shrubs, that always felt welcoming to me; it was picturesque. The warmth and comfort I had imagined at the thought of the place seeped into the mental image, saturating my thoughts. I imagined the warmth of the sunlit grass, soft as a carpet, threading between my toes. I breathed in, and my thoughts wandered to the wonderful smell of pine and moss that had so often bit at my nose.
The fox howled, breaking my concentration, and leapt at me suddenly. I threw up my arms for protection and felt a shar
Night Prowler Faith smiled as she strutted into the room; her fangs sliding out just over her sable lips. Her dark hair flowed out behind her like a half formed shadow as the young vampire came to a halt. It was almost time for her to go out on the town for the night. The sun at last fell behind the edge of the horizon and the cool night was at last upon the world. Her smile widened.
Faith walked about her room with a sense of glee. Her pale fingers with long, black nails plucked a corset from the bed. “If only,” she murmured as she admired the garment and ran her fingers through the lace. The time for such things was past her. The vampire quickly made her way through her closet and after a moment she assembled herself an ensemble for the evening. Her ivory skin glowed as the moon began its ascent amongst the stars and peered in through her window. She slowly dressed, taking her time to make su

MIKEY GOES TO APRIL FOR SOME SISTERLY ADVICE
April watched as in front of her Mikey finished toweling the rain from his skin. “Thanks.”
The youngest mutant turtle mumbled as he threw the wet towel across the room, making it land in the laundry hamper she kept near her bedroom door. She smiled loving at him, at the young mutant she considered and often called her little brother. She watched as he drew his knees up against his chest, an obvious and telltale sign that he was upset about something.
Moving forward she gently touched his foot, noting that he flinched and jerked slightly when she made contact. “Hey. Mikey……..what’s wrong?”
Mikey’s response was to shake his head before putting his forehead against his knees. Sighing softly she continued to speak. “Come on baby brother. You know you can talk to big sis about anything. Anything at all.”
Slowly Mikey looked up at her. She could see the pain in his ey
Crisis: Ch1- Sonadow“Sonic, for the last time, leave me alone.” Shadow growled, baring razor sharp fangs at his rival.
The blue hedgehog simply laughed and shrugged,
“nah, I don’t think so.”
He ran up to jog next to the ebony male. “Besides, you’re always alone and GUN seems to have you in a grip so- I think it would be great if you came to our celebratory party! Ya’know, to relax and let some steam off!”
Shadow sighed, frustrated with the hedgehog’s persistence. ‘Nuisance’ he scoffed, running off deeper into the forest with Sonic at his heels.
Crystal water came into view as he slowed his skates to a walk. Shadow knelt down and cupped his hands in the water before bringing them back up to drink.
‘Yuck.” Sonic commented, scrunching his nose up in disgust, “There must be a lot of bacteria in that water, Shad’s. Sure you wanna be drinking it?” He knelt down at the water’s edge, poking it with his inde
WORDS From FamilyThe moment they set foot in the lair they could smell it. The warm, soft aroma wafting through the air, beckoning them towards the kitchen. As they moved splinter spoke. “Michelangelo? Leonardo?”
A moment later Leo’s voice answered his calls. “We’re in the kitchen.”
Rounding the corner all 4 of them stopped at the sight in front of them.
On the other side of the counter Leo was sitting on a stool, watching as in front of him Mikey worked, stirring a large pot of something that was bubbling sluggishly. It was Donnie who spoke first, his voice filled with a tone of uncertainty. “Mikey?”
Mikey turned. A large grin spread across the orange banded turtle’s face. “I’m making spaghetti!”
Donnie swallowed a little. Something about Mikey had changed. Some sorrow that had been in his brother when they had left was gone now. This Mikey was happier. Donnie watched as Mikey turned holding his hand out to Leo as though expecting
