The League of the Young and Supernatural (7)

A supernatural organization founded by rogue aliens fight to protect the human race.

Ch. 7 *Sakura* Morning came after seven torturous hours. I barely slept. The guest bed was insanely soft and comfortable, but I was too stressed to give it a chance. I had lied on the floor all night, bouncing back ideas as to how I would go about luring an Aejin anywhere. They were sly, manipulative, and hard to identify. They tricked you - it was hardly ever the other way around. The...Read On

When the time finally came for him to get that which he desired the most, he would not have it snatched by that nasty thing called the plague. The moment he saw the signs, he wasted no time fetching his 7-month pregnant wife to the village shaman, a man well known for his...Read On

'One Town' Tales- Chapter One

This is a revamped version of a story that was submitted earlier, hope the changes make it better.

Chapter One About six months ago, life for me became very, very complicated. My name is Junior Banner and I was a fool to believe all around me was as good as it seemed. I found out that not everyone I interacted with was normal, or even human for that matter. This world of mine, as it turns out, is home to the living, dead, undead and almost everything that goes bump in the night....Read On

The Demon Knights

To save the world, the innocent must die.

CHAPTER ONE WHEN DARKNESS FALLS From the pores of skin made pink by a constant flow of blood rushing through thousands of veins like a newborn river, several droplets of salt water sprinkled onto the concrete. Sparkling beneath the bright burning sun on one of south Florida’s hottest winter days during February, the small spatters of moisture evaporated into the air as steam...Read On

Ch. 6 *Azaiah* The wind tugged at my hair and tied it in knots. But at this moment, I didn’t really mind. I had to make it to Treville, the filthy side of the city near the bay. Treville was the last place a “Buigel” battle had occurred, and it would be my best lead to trace the actual predators on the loose. It was never a good idea to take flight in the city in most situations, but I...Read On

Myth: The Story of Everything

This is how the world began. Or should have, at least, if I had any say in it...

In the beginning, there was Chaos: Ever-changing. All-encompassing. Eternal? Not quite.   There came a separation of the darkness and the light, and then there were gods within the teeming void. The gods were mighty and wise, and they looked about them and saw that it was not good. The mightiest and wisest among them (some call him Wotan, and some call him Ra) gathered his brethren...Read On

Ch. 5 *Elian* Maybe if I hadn't been raised on a planet full of outcasts, I'd be more extroverted. Public places made me uncomfortable, especially ones full of drunken humans who could get violent at any given moment. If it weren't for my mother granting me my ghost abilities, I'd be a complete loss for a son. Life would become unbearable. I gripped the door handle and pushed it...Read On

Ch. 4 *Sakura* It wasn’t clear as to how long I was being carried. 20 minutes, Maybe half an hour? All I was focused on were the noises happening around me. Maybe if I listened close enough, I could navigate back to my apartment after breaking free. Whoever was carrying me was definitely smart in his actions. He batted the sack around as if I were just luggage being transported from one...Read On

Ch. 3 *Jinx* “Zeta, you can’t just waltz into someone’s house unannounced,” I argued, my eyebrows aching from furrowing over my eyelids for so long. “It’s not like they’ll know we’re there! We do this in public buildings! What makes this any different?” Zeta inquired, looking more confused rather than annoyed. “It’s someone’s personal space! Their private property! Plus, it’s twice...Read On

Ch. 2 *Azaiah* “I know you mean well, but it just seems suspicious that you two came from the same planet and both ended up here in the same city, the same LYS building,” the commander noted, glancing over two separate documents on his desk. “Like I told you before, there’s nothing between us. It’s just like any normal human. We were born in the same place and just so happen to be...Read On

Deathdate

Elaine can see dates - death dates, and it's up to her to make sure her friends don't die.

Prolouge I run down the stairs at full speed. I'm almost late for the bus. I have to make sure Amel doesn't get on that bus. I run down the sidewalk and finally make it - just in time for the bus to start pulling away.  "WAIT!" I scream, back to running after the bus. My hands wave frantically in the air and my red hair is bouncing against my back. The bus slows and finally comes to...Read On

Brother Sebastian stood on the porch of Carpenter's ranch house and uttered a silent prayer to God that all his years of research and interpretations of the most ancient texts were correct. As the sun rose further in the sky, he watched the beams of light, as they moved slowly across the yard toward the house, illuminating everything in their path.. It reached the porch and slowly moved up...Read On

It has been seven days since we left. We were attacked a total of 6 times each attack more vicious than the last. If not for Jace, I may not have been able to handle them on my own.

Lycan stood before several yards to the side of a...Read On

She embraced and kissed him as soon...Read On
