My Alien Girlfriend (Chapter 1)
The rain pounded on my car as I drove up the highway to my college. The sky was cloudy and it was rather chilly. I wanted to get back to the campus soon, or it would be too dark to see where I was driving. It had been a good visit back at mom and dad’s, but they had wanted to visit too long and I’d let time get away from me. It was 9 in the evening…and my housemates would probably be up watching TV or something. I didn’t want them teasing me about returning from home so late…because they’d done that before.
The guys I lived with had long put their family life behind them and very rarely visited their families at home. They often picked on me about visiting my family during certain weekends like this one. Because it was the weekend, I had decided to drive home to visit my mom and dad for a while. Unlike the guys, I missed them and I don’t get to see them very often, especially ever since I started college. They were happy to see me of course,
Birthday Roses - Part 4Tia let out a low keening groan as the current contraction rushed through her, gripping the sheets of the bed over which she leaned. A part of her longed to lay down on the soft mattress, but the very thought of moving from her spot seemed impossible. She could focus only on the pain, hoping that concentration would help her get through it…
Until the next one, at least…
Nate came back into the room, loaded up with several fluffy towels, a blanket, and a kettle of hot water. Seeing his wife hunched over in the grips of yet another contraction had him setting his items down on the table, rushing over to her side. “Tia,” he breathed out, hands hovering anxiously over her hard, quivering belly.
“They’re… they’re right on top of each other…” she moaned. “I can’t… I can’t…”
“Yes, you can,” he insisted, grasping one of the
Dead Beat 5Ahhh this one really needs some love- you guys give a lot of awesome feedback for this series and it helps a lot <3. Anyways enough of my rambling lets get on with it!
Warning: This chapter contains language and scenes not suitable for the immature of mind. Read with disgretion.
Previously on Dead Beat: After the baths and a heated debate between the two males of your team you all left the room in need of supplies and find quite a bit. But a fatal encounter with a Witch leaves the whole team frozen.
That was all you could think with her red eyes staring at you.
God she was like a monster straight from a horror movie- and in truth she was... her hair all straw-like and dirty.... her blackened bags under her eyes seeming to tighten into focus.
She shifted a little in her stance her breathing picking up a bit.
Everyone else was still as well.
And then that breathing got a little louder- and you didn't know it but the younger male behind you had decided to st
StagesRita was alwasy care-free. Each summer she spent all her time swimming in the same pond year after year. It was secluded and no one else was every there. She especially loved how quiet it was at the pond, she was able to feel at ease.
However, Rita didn't know that prior to the summer, a UFO was spotted overhead and it seemed to crashland and diasappear into the surrounding woods. Ever since that night, a bizarre creature was seen in and around the pond, but was later captured. Yet, the fish and other life in the water seemed to be vanishing. Hunters and scientists examined the water but found absolutely no life within it, it was a crystal clear pond so nothing oculd hide in it, or so they thought.
Rita jumped into the pond as she always did and swam for hours. It was even hotter than usual that day and since the pond was isolated, Rita took off her bikini and swam around in the nude. Lucky for Rita
Life As A Dragoness Ch 2My alarm went off at 7:00am. I groaned and turned over to the alarm clock and shut it off. I was about to put my pillow over my head when my mom came in.
"Come on, honey, you have to get up and get ready for church." my mom said.
"All right mom," I said sleepily.
Then I slowly crawled out of bed and headed into the bathroom. After I was done in the bathroom I went back into my room to find my Sunday clothes. It was a blue sundress, with little white flowers on it. It was one of my favorite dresses to wear to church because it was my favorite color and it wasn't too fancy. I thought to myself, "This dress is just right. Nobody likes a dress that is too fancy." I walked over to my bookshelf to get my Bible. From here I could see where I had hidden the shard the day before. The shard looked like it was glowing through the bandana I had wrapped it in. I started to worry about it being found by someone else. Even if someone
"So you don't remember how you ended up out there at all?"
Ben stared at the vast sandy desert outside his passenger-side window, barely able to believe that he had been out there less than an hour ago. He turned to his savior, a rather buxom brunette by the name of Rita, shaking his head ruefully. "No I only remember walking through the sand. When I couldn't walk anymore I just collapsed. Next thing I know, you found me."
Rita gazed over at him, awe and disbelief mixing together on her face. "You're pretty lucky I did," she replied. "You could've died out there."
He nodded. Certain that he was going to die of either starvation or dehydration, or both, Ben had been surprised when a black pickup pulled up next to him; he'd thought for certain he was hallucinating. A tall figure in leather and denim had jumped out, rushing quickly over to his side. He'd barely been consciou
Radioactive Femininity TG - Part 1
Part 1 - "Wheat For It..."
Sometimes I hate being alone so much I just want to run screaming into the nearest crowd of people and grab hold of everyone till they all have long hair and large breasts. For anyone but me, that would be very strange.
I have what a few people call a superpower, many call a curse, and most prefer not to talk about at all. If I’m near another person for a certain period of time, something about me starts to feminize them.
I have no idea why, nor do a multitude of scientists, doctors, and religious leaders who have poked, prodded, and thrown things at me. It started the same day I ate wheat pasta for the first time in over a decade. This fact has been scrutinized and experimented with every time I bring it up to those looking for explanations but it seems to be entirely unrelated to what happened.
When I was very young, I would get flu-like symptoms whenever I ate anything with wheat in it. This meant my mom needed to
Neko Mother - Chapter 1 - TG, TFI was born in the year 2025, not that it matters anymore. With no calendars to keep track of stuff like birthdays and holidays are just not important anymore. I must have been thirteen when the first of them were reported on the news. Random articles about some sickness, making a big panic in cities or something. It must have started back East, or they wouldn't have been making such a big deal about it.
All I can remember was it worried Mom and Dad a lot. They would have arguments that shook the house. I think Mom wanted to move farther West, while Dad wanted to stay put. They argued about it constantly. At that age, all I cared about was the fact that they canceled school. As more reports came in, people started locking themselves in their houses, only coming out when it was absolutely necessary.
It was at this point that I made the biggest mistake of my life. After a week straight of being on lock down I was going stir crazy. I went on a tirade against my parents. The argument that f
Transformers Prime: Dawn of the Dinobots part 1In the deep reaches of outer space, a spaceship could be seen shooting through the stars to its intended target. The planet Earth. Within the ship, a tall, red and white robot with protrusions that looked wings sticking out of his back was working furiously at the controls.
"We'll be nearing Earth soon, Grimlock." He called to someone behind him.
"Good work, Swoop. Me, Grimlock, thought we never make it." A deep voice replied to the one called Swoop.
"Do you think Optimus will help us?"
"If not, me make him help us. He risk life to save soldiers before. Not see why he not now."
The one called Swoop nodded. Long had he become used to his leader's way of speech. And it did nothing to change the respect and admiration Swoop had for his leader. But they needed Optimus' help if they were to
Grimlock could sense Swoop's concern. "We rescue them, Swoop," He reassured his friend. "You see. We get Optimus, then we get others back."
Swoop nodded again but it didn't do much to boost his con
