Moon Phase – Waxing Gibbous
Days until the Full Moon – 5
Once in his helmet and his motorcycle running, Alex found the first gap in the traffic and punched the accelerator. The sounds of the engine and the wind against his clothing couldn’t mask the worry he was feeling from driving towards that location, and possibly encountering Shane.
But then, what if he didn’t? What if he was already gone? There was always that possibility. The drive to the location his father told him about was at least twenty minutes; the rush hour traffic on the highway nearby however was a sign it would take longer. Chances were good he would be gone by the time he got there. It was still daytime as well.
“Ugh. C’mon, think. What can I do when I get there?”
With the police at the location, the most he could visibly do was watch and observe. But then, he could tell by scent if Shane was there, if the wind was blowing the ri

Moon Phase – Waxing Gibbous
Days until the Full Moon – 5
Going to bed Thursday night to a mix of emotions from the encounter, Alex got up the next day to find Bailey once again sleeping next to his head. After a quick rub of his pet’s head, he got himself ready for the day. With the demo at the shop coming in less than ten hours, he was anxiously awaiting its start.
As his second class went on, he also awaited a chance to talk to Nathan. As he did so, he went over every detail of the encounter in his head, trying not to forget any details. A few times, he questioned saying anything, but his wariness of what Shane had said overrode that feeling. Whether that was good or bad, he was about to find out as class let out.
Once at a spot a good distance from any foot traffic, Alex started speaking, cutting right to the chase. “I ran into that guy again, and I got his name.”
Nathan’s eyebrows rose a bit, and then droppe

Moon Phase – First Quarter
Days until the Full Moon – 7
The place Catherine had picked out for lunch was a slightly upscale Italian restaurant. Having left his stomach a bit empty since that morning, Alex ordered an appetizer for the group to go along with their breadsticks and dipping sauce.
As they sat talking for the first few minutes, indulging in the breadsticks as they did, Alex casually tracked a few scents around him. There was a mellow perfume in the air, coming from a woman who passed by them. One of the last patrons had chewed some intense, to him, cinnamon scented gum from the smell coming from under the table.
With another few sniffs, he started to pick up some scents of old books coming off Catherine’s hands, or her jacket. Each that he could best identify was not unlike the textbooks they all had used in high school.
“Something on your mind?” Alex brought his head up at Nathan’s question. It tu

Moon Phase – First Quarter
Over a few seconds, both Alex and Marcus's gazes went back and forth over all the customers; there were eight in total. Mostly younger kids with a few adults. Many of them browsing but all of them had their heads and hair exposed; none with black. The person Alex had seen wearing red was in fact a woman in a windbreaker.
Relieved, but also a bit embarrassed, he felt Marcus tap his shoulder, asking if he was hungry as well. “A little.” He responded, glad to know his friend hadn’t used the excuse just to intercept him.
“I’ll grab you a burger from Ruckers, then.”
“Thanks, and medium rare is fine with me.”
However, no sooner had Marcus nodded to him than another customer entered the store. Looking over, Alex saw the face first. He didn’t need to see the hair after that. His attacker had ditched his red hoodie, leaving an untucked T-shirt.

Moon Phase – Waxing Crescent
Heading back into the bathroom, his limbs and chest shaking in excitement, Alex got a quick shower and some fresh clothing on. The only thing on his mind then was that he’d succeeded at shifting both into and out of his were form. Returning to the kitchen to find his friends and family waiting for him, some of them had very questioning looks on their faces. Despite that, and the soreness of his bones and muscles after the shift, Alex was ecstatic and his grin didn’t leave his face for long.
However, while riding with his friends to pick up his motorcycle, his enthusiasm took a slight hit; all three of them were eerily quiet during the ride. As though they were afraid to say anything. Judging by their scents, they weren’t afraid. Maybe deep in thought, or thinking about something else.
“Give it some time.” was what Alex said to himself after thanking Marcus for the ride. Wavi

Moon Phase – Waxing Crescent
Listening to the outside noises, he heard wind blowing against the truck, but nothing else; his shaky breathing thankfully didn’t echo inside of the truck bed. Taking a sniff of the air, all he could smell was his own sweat, his clothing, his breath with the steak spices on it, and an old trace of soda. The latter two reminding him that he was in for a hunger attack soon.
He would have to endure it. Sans any soreness, Alex felt shaky at the thought of how his friends were reacting not even five feet from where he was.
Listening again, he finally heard a voice. “Think he’s OK?” It was Catherine.
“I think so.” This time it was Nathan.
Unable to tell if they were saying those things out of fear or concern, Alex reached out with one paw and tapped the liner twice. He wanted to talk instead, but for now, this would work. Better they not look like they were talking to a caged ani
Dangerous ReadingFrom the journal of Sarah Richardson.
“February 18, 1928
At long last I have found what my family has been searching for! For three generations my family has scoured the darkest corners of the earth for this treasure and at last my souls of my father and grandfather can rest easy in their graves. I am on a fishing vessel bound for Oslo where I can then journey back home to Baltimore and continue my research. This journey has been an arduous one. Nearly fourteen months scouring frozen fjords in Scandinavia have tested both my will and my tolerance of the cruel elements of the cold, far north.
Next to me in a crude parcel is the very thing my grandfather weaved countless stories about and what my father invested more than half of the family fortune into. I am the one that shall prove their sacrifices of time and money were not in vain. Our critics shall finally be silenced!
My treasure is not one of gold, silver or any precious ston
Demons (Chapter 1)Jeff's P.O.V.
I was getting ready for my casual killing sprees. It was late, like.. 1 am. My brother Liu stared at me, like worried.
— Sometimes I wonder if you're okay.. I thought you were going to kill people who just "infested the world", remember?
— I do, but what's wrong with looking for that kind of humans? — I laughed.
— You're insane dude. — Liu said, going back to his tv show.
So I just looked for my black jacket as always and I went outside. I wore my surgical mask to hide my scars, to not 'scare' someone. I laughed again and started to walk. Maybe I could find someone, but to be honest the street was pretty desertic. I wanted to go for a female this time. I think they're better to kill, I'm going to guess it's because I'm a straight guy..? I don't know, I'm overthinking.
After a while, I saw a female that caught my atention. I couln't see her face, her head was down but she was indeed a female. She was wearing dark c
GEP : A King's Christmas Carol pt 7 (final)
Sethrophe awoke and found himself in the infirmary room of the Rattler. He sat up and saw Blackguard dozing on the chair next to the bed.
“I…I’m home!” he said excitedly. “Blackguard, wake up!”
“Uh..huh?” Blackguard said as his eyes widened and he stood up. “You’re highness! You’re awake? But, the medical cyborg said that—,”
“Never mind that now!” Sethrophe interteruped. He looked at Blackguard and spoke in a sincere tone, “Listen, I owe you and your brethren an apology for keeping you all from your holiday on Lycoan. I’ve been so obsessed with capturing Arostarr and the Predators and so angry about our failures to do so that I took it out you all. Can you ever forgive me?”
“Your highness, are you feeling alright?”
Sethrophe got up from his bed. He slithered over to the window and looked outside. To his delig
The Paranormals- Chapter 1- Crimson Cross AcademyI stared at the large building before me.
It looked like something plucked from a horror movie.
The aged grey bricks were cracked and molded, the thousands of windows' shutters were dangling. A chain-link fence enclosed the structure in a tight space. The academy sat on a cliff overlooking a large blackish lake. Bright, full trees filled the perimeter with much needed foliage.
CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE! RISK OF ELECTROCUTION! was plastered on a metal sign next to the gate.
I squinted and looked at the large sign staked in the front yard.
Welcome to Crimson Cross Academy!
Enjoy Your Stay!
Oh, I will.
I was excited to enter this Castle Of Doom. I got a weird, creepy vibe from it. Hell, it radiated off the place. Totally my style. The stained glass window of an "angel" that was high to the top of the academy, overlooked to grounds.
They probably installed a video camera in the eye.

Mission 1: Der Tod schweigt nicht II
Krachend schlossen sich die gewaltigen Tore der Burg und überließen die Hexen erneut ihrem Schicksal, welches vermutlich den Tod gefolgt vom Wiederauferstehen beinhaltete.
»Hätte ich nicht wenigstens dort alleine zurückbleiben können?«, quengelte Morgaine.
Chloe stöhnte entnervt. »Sag mal, was ist überhaupt dein Problem?«
»Äh, ʼtschuldige mal! Ich bin mit einigen Freaks zusammen in einer Zombieapokalypse, während andere in TV-Shows zu irgendwelchen strengen Eltern geschickt werden. Was soll daran wohl ein Problem sein?«, meinte Morgaine mit dem drohend erhobenen Zeigefinger in einem sarkastischen Tonfall.
»Keine Ahnung wo du herkommst, aber das hier ist ein normaler Job an einem normalen Arbeitstag.«
»Ach wirklich, dann sag mir mal, in welcher Realität das SO ist. Oder von welchem abgefuckten Planeten du kommst.«
»Falls es dich interessiert, ich bin hier geboren und aufgewachse
D.I.D- Let the battle begin
Suddenly Callisto snapped her eyes wide open, picked Naira up and jumped backwards, avoiding a projectile just in time. Somebody was attacking! Callisto hissed and looked with a glare at the attacker. "Hey! Watch where you're swinging that thing!" Naira's eyes widened as she looked at the object. It was a familiar dagger like thing attached to something that looked like a grey snake. But then Naira took a closer look…and noticed it was a tail! A very familiar looking tail. "I can swing my tail wherever I want, now-" A gasp escaped the teenager's lips as her suspicions were confirmed. There she was, Valendra…fully transformed and she looked like a volcano ready to explode. Her eyes were spitting fire and her mouth was drawn back into a snarl. "I want you to get your dirty hands of my uncle's pet. And do it quick, before I rip them off…angel."
Callisto's calm attitude remained, although her eyes dangerously narrowed. "Don't you dare to call Naira a pet
