“Go back to the depths of Hades whence you came, vile woman!” I scolded in a shaky voice. She let out a blood curdling screech that no mortal could imitate, which has still scarred me for years beyond one would imagine. I couldn't help but stare, as she was melting, being incapacitated right before my eyes. I still couldn’t figure out why she wanted to bring down this horror on me, of all people. She answered my question for me,
Sometimes the devil you know seems better than the devil you don’t. Lilith was terrified of what she might be about to experience now that she was finally being let out of her cell. Her story began with her feeling scared, as she had no idea where she was, who had kidnapped her, or what in the world was going on. Yet, just as she had, at long last, gained some knowledge of her situation, gotten used to being around Jdahya, and even gotten to know him a little, she was being made to step vastly out of her comfort zone and into a truly alien situation. It is entirely understandable that she was afraid. Yet, all it took for her to overcome this fear was a simple, albeit rather insensitive, comment from Jdahya. Seeing her hesitation to leave, he challenged her to “overcome her fear.” “Back into your cage, Lilith?,” he prodded, and she immediately realized that her fear was controlling her and decided not to give in to it. Nevertheless, she did not see the strength she was displaying, but rather, the way she had been
First of all I was in my dark room with the only light being my t.v, I playing Xbox with my friend Skylar, we were playing Rainbow Six Siege a counter terrorism shooter. It was a late on a dark, stormy night, it was bomb objective and only I was left on the team to face five other enemies defusing the bomb and I slowly and stealthy with his silenced pistol picked off about two enemies outside the objective roaming and then pulled out his primary the 416-C Assault Rifle and went in blazing in the objective and his heart was racing he picked off another two enemies and that’s when he began guarding the defuser waiting to find the last enemy. “Can you search cams Skylar?” I asked Skylar.
After walking in on his sub cheating on him with the security guard, Taden McIntire had decided it was time to make a change. He wanted to have a life where he didn’t hate himself at the end of the day like he did working on Wall Street. Reading an advertisement for new entrepreneurs in the small southern town of Cedar Falls, Taden decided to roll the dice and move.
Bethany Hamilton screamed "I got attached by a shark". Her friend Alana, her dad Holt, and her brother Bryan rushed to get to her. Holt got there first, staring at her arm being gone, but stops because he knew if he didin't hurry she would die of blood loss. Bryan called 911, and waited for the ambulance. When the ambulance came, they rushed to get her to the hospital. A couple of hours went by, Bethany got out of surgery. After all the visits and stuff she asked when can she get back in the water? The Doctor said it would take a long time for her to get use to having only one arm. The doctor talked a lot but all she could think of was the ocean. Thats when she made a promise to be on a surfboard by Thanksgiving Day.
I was trapped, and for a time there seemed to be no hope for me. But you changed that Olivia, you freed me from my prison I had created for myself. With your help I opened up, smiled and laughed again and branched outwards. You saved me from the dark tunnel I was headed down. For a time I was happy, made new friends, and grew closer to those I cared about most. It was the best time of my life. Then the Darkness returned to our world and that happiness began to fade. We fought against the forces of the dark and emerged victorious. Together we pushed back the evils of this world! Then we took on the Lord of the Night. We mere ants challenged a god! But how could we have known. His power was too great for us. In the end, our struggle was hopeless. When you went down, I knew I couldn't just stand by and watch you die. I thought the only option was to throw myself in front of the blade that was meant for you. How foolish was I. In the moment that seemed like the only option. All I did was leave you even more vulnerable. I shudder to think what would've happened if Al had not shown up. In the end he saved you, and I was useless and weak. Lucky for me you got me back to Andura and by a miracle I was
On a Saturday morning, around 10am, my family was getting ready for my niece’s (Maritza) 4-year-old birthday party. After 12:30pm we were already at my sister’s (Adele) house, ready to give my niece a hug and her annual present. At the moment Maritza wasn’t home, so I stalled for a bit. Chatted with their neighbor, few high school friends, and their wife’s. Finally, she showed up along with her father. The first person she hugs is me, I’m her favorite uncle, according to her, as she hugs my legs and looked up and says, “hey uncle J.” I replied “hey?” with a bit of a curiosity on my mind. Her lip had a big red lump. I managed to not ask her what had happened on her lip. I’m thinking it’s a “I fell down” type accident. The party went off, and
The sun began to creep up behind the towering pine trees as I sip on my torrid coffee. I glance at my watch which reads 5:45 am, I gather my tackle box that's overflows with hooks and line and stick in underneath the damp boat seat. The water glistens in the morning sunlight, I aboard the scent of pine needles which is always prominent the crisp air of Northern Wisconsin.
Ella Wood. That’s who I am just Ella Wood a 16 year old girl who never really had much going on and who not many people knew. At least that’s what I had thought a few hours ago when my name wasn’t on the news and pretty much every other place that you could think of. You may be confused as to what I’m talking to you about, so let me tell you a story. Let me warn you though this is not just any story, but my story. First of all let me introduce myself a bit better. I live in a town that’s kind of big and called Blackview. I love to make music it’s one of my special talents and I could also dance. I have an older brother named Tyler. I also have a twin brother named Ethan we’re practically inseparable. We’ve done a lot of things together and
After checking on dinner Katt calls for KeVonna. the youngest of the girls however she was 9 years older than Kyngston the baby boy. Happy to be called away from her sisters bickering over who helped the most in the house. Knowing She never could seriously argue on her own behalf. "Yeah momma!" she gleamed as she looked at the food being prepared. her large eyes smiling with excitement. under a huge messy bun of curly hair were plump cheeks on a round face helped convey a youthful look of innocence. She was skilled at using it o her advantage as Katt found it difficult to look at her and stay angry. KeVonna having to always say what's on her mind without thinking usually got away with it. actually everyone let her get away with a lot of things.
Eventually we were given a word by the alpha and told to never reveal it. By this time after numerous beatings and fights amongst ourselves, we haughtily thought we would win. We were wrong. That day we met the Devil. Individual we were brought to a room with a chair,” Briseis head twitched again and growled. “In that room I had my arms dislocated, bones broken, choked to near death, beatings, and threats of rape. I did not give in, but others did. Some were killed for failing other remained with the healer for many months to return to hell.” The demon within Briseis began to rise as she remembered details that she had blocked out. She felt it then the change in her eyes and demeanor. Green eyes turned red and her demon came out. “During those years innocence was ripped from us, hope was destroyed, love did not exist! Hale did this to us. Made us into demons that kill children, pregnant women, humans, and eat their flesh. They made us,” was growled out and her breathing became strained. Turning she walked away from Alwyn and looked into the
It’s strange to think that the 2009 drama about Julia child, called “Julia and Julia”, was what evoked my passion for food. Not food exactly, but the plethora of healing properties it may contain. I’m not referring to your basic scrambled eggs or buttered toast, instead, I became fascinated in aromatic Thai curries and the restorative properties of cinnamon. I bought my first cookbook in 8th grade, and prepared myself for the destructive summer ahead. Fried pans and burnt noodles stayed fragrant in the air for weeks upon their demise. Apple rinds and decayed broccoli florets filled our trash bag to the brim, trapping its stench only slightly. As any 12-year old, I eventually gave in to the hard-earned truth that it was highly unlikely
Amaimon cringing made him growl even more, not liking such reactions. Lilith was not to be scared of him, but Amaimon always was. Any show of fear was a show of Amaimon's presence blocking Lilith and he hated that. Carefully, yet forcefully, he was pealing the layers of Amaimon back to reveal Lilith underneath. It wasn't easy. It took time and he was far from done, but lately Satan had begun to feel more confident in his results. Amaimon didn't fight as much, he was breaking and every break was a crack in that cocoon, one step closer to Lilith. One step closer to what father had promised him. Her. He'd given up the war just for that promise. He could live without his brother, but her. He needed her, so much so that getting her back was an obsession
Lauren Kate’s newest book, Unforgiven, is the latest novel from her Fallen series that extends to a specific character’s background story, Cameron Briel, known by series fans as Cam. In the series, two main characters are reincarnated over centuries of time in different life situations meeting each other in specific ages in their lives to test the time and the limits of good and evil, (heaven and hell) to keep their true loves. Like many of the prior novels, each chapter usually bounces back and forth between the two primary characters of the book, in this case -- between Cam’s point of view and Lilith’s point of view. Unforgiven is a well-developed story that gives you, at least, an understanding of his backstory and how it makes him into
She had done it to gain more power, but it hadn 't done her very good and the devil took her soul; snatched it right from her chest and left me with nothing. I was depressed, broken, and feeling quite vengeful over the situation, it was madness that had driven me to act out and become my mother. something my father hated. "You think you are evil...yes?" a raspy voice causes me to drift away from my thoughts and turn around. "Now, why would I think such a thing? and...how could you possibly know that?" my arms cross and I stare at the man curiously. Who was this stranger? and what was he doing in my home? "I can read your mind very easily miss Willow." Is all he 'll say and I 'm speechless. Yes, speechless...what was I to say? I certainly didn 't want to be speaking to some strange man who had no business being here.
