The Skull RoomOne night, a young boy went exploring in a nearby forest. However, even though he knew his way back, the forest began to get really foggy and the boy couldn't see a thing. He kept walking and saw something in the distance.
It was a rustic shack in a small clearing. It wasn't very big and had two rooms. He decided to stay there until the fog cleared.
Inside the shack there wasn't much except a small table with a skull and candle and a large picture of a skeleton. The boy went over to inspect the skull and candle and found that the candle had a hinge that attached it to the skull.
The boy pushed the candle. Suddenly, there was a creak behind him. The skeleton painting opened to reveal the other room. Inside was a table with a few more tables with skull candles and a bed. There was an encryption on the bed that was dull and smeared off but the boy saw it as "D_ ___ Sle_p h_re". The boy thought it wouldn't hurt to spend the night
The Haunted Urn
Contained in this urn are the ashes of a man who sought to gain ultimate power. Several people including a shaman woman said that no one could handle that power, but the fool went after it anyway. Though he finally got it, the power was too much for him to handle. The power caused him to catch fire, turning him to ashes. His ashes were placed inside an urn and sealed with a cork.
But the man's ashes contained untold magic since he had wanted power.
Several years later, the urn began doing really creepy things. The urn was given from family to family just so others could get away from it.
The man's spirit lives on in the ashes inside the urn and the urn can see and hear just as good as a normal human. If you denied the existence of anything creepy or supernatural thing about the urn, the urn was said to give you terrible nightmares. Though the nightmares vary, many who have suffered them have suffered from insanity, long-term depression, a
A while ago, a group of four friends decided to invent their own language. After thinking hard and working hard on it they managed to create a language called the Cryptocode.
Composed only of numbers and punctuation marks, the Cryptocode was an elaborate language capable of easily stumping many.
The intricacy of the language was bad enough, but a few years later, one of the friends who worked on it moved away, but before leaving, used the Cryptocode to encrypt really sinister messages and left it at one of the friend's houses.
Upon reading and deciphering it, he found that the first three lines said:
"So you made it this far?"
"Watch your back."
"There's no way out."
Upon translating further, the messages got more foul by saying:
"He has abandoned us."
"The forces of the dead are coming."
"They want blood and will devour the world."
"Diablo sees all."
"Do not enter the Bathroom."
After deciphering all of those, his heart was pumping and upon translating the next on
Jetroids Chapter 28Chapter 28: Final Showdown
Everyone turned to see Vaxtus had entered the lab and had been listening to the conversation Astro was having with Archibald.
"Vaxtus!" Archibald said.
"How did you get here?" Sakura asked.
"I snuck aboard your ship's secret compartment so I could destroy all of you here. Then there will be no one to stop me from conquering Atmo City."
"And how are you still alive dude? I saw Aero destroy you." Yuesbi said.
"Long story, small fry. Now prepare to be terminated." Vaxtus raised his guns to detroy them.
"Everyone cover your eyes!" Aero said as he flew a flash grenade at Vaxtus. It blinded him with a bright light as everyone left the room.
"We can't have him here!" Archibald said, activating some blast doors.
Our heroes descended deeper into the lab. "Vaxtus wants us dead. He will most likely stop us from getting back to the Cutlass, and even if we did get away with it, he would still fly after us. Plus, his lust to
Jetroids Chapter 27Chapter 27: Reunion
Our four heroes, Aero, Astro, Yuesbi, and Sakura had found Archibald in the asteroid laboratory. Astro had enter the room first.
"Astro, where have you been?" he asked.
"I admit, I went on a small adventure outside of the laboratory. But I broguth some friends with me." Astro said.
"Aero, is that you?" Archibald said with a gasp.
"It has been so long, Aero."
"How are you alive?"
"Well, before Vaxtus killed my original body, I built a backup body which I sent to this asteroid and had a copy of my program transferred to it. When my body on Velbus got destroyed, my new body activated here."
"I see." Astro said. "These are our friends Yuesbi and Sakura." Yuesbi and Sakura introduced themselves.
"Anyways, I had built Astro because I was unable to bring Aero with me. I didn't think Astro would be this stubborn. You left the lab using the teleporter Astro, but you still managed to find Aero and bring him here. Ho
Jetroids Chapter 26Chapter 26: The Astroid Lab
After sailing out of the field of asteroids, Astro noticed something on his radar. There was a giant asteroid floating in the midst of the field with few others around it.
"If I'm correct, that's it. Land there." Astro said.
"Ok." Aero replied.
Aero landed the Cutlass on the asteroid's surface. Our heroes then stepped out to explore the asteroid. It was gray with lots of craters and it was far out in space. In the distance, they could see a giant blue and green planet, which Astro told them was Alterra.
Our heroes began searching for an entrance to the lab. Yuesbi used his scanner to help them find it. After half an hour, he found a crater 60 feet from the Cutlass landing site that looked like the way in.
"Hey, I found something!" he said.
"Yuesbi, this looks like it. Let's enter." Pressing the button activated an air lock door allowing them to enter an air lock to prevent the vacuum of space from enterin
Jetroids Chapter 25Chapter 25: The Asteroid Field
2 and a half days after leaving Velbus, our heroes, now on board the Cutlass, were venturing out to space to get Archibald back.
Well, on their way through the asteroids, Yuesbi was waking up when he saw a meteor shower erupt within the field. He alerted everyone and Aero took emergency maneuvers to ensure that they made it through.
"That was close" Aero said. That was when a giant asteroid came towards the Cutlass. Astro activated the Cutlass's machine guns to destroy it before it hit the Cutlass. Another time later, there were two asteroids about to collide paths with the Cutlass. Sakura told Aero to fire the Cutlass's missiles at them.
Asteroids kept coming at the for roughly 2 days, but Aero did his best to make sure they stayed their course. A little while later, Astro scanner detected something...
Jetroids Chapter 24Chapter 24: To the Stars
The next day, Aero, Astro, Sakura, and Yuesbi showed up at the research facility where Sparks and Volt had prepared the Cutlass for liftoff.
"Yuesbi, you've grown a lot since we first met" Aero said before approaching the ship. "I think I can trust you for this mission."
"What are you two talking about?" Astro asked.
"It's something that happened long ago." Aero said.
"Now be careful and good luck." Sparks and Volt said. "Even if this doesn't make it back, we have plans to mass produce it."
"Ok, thanks" Aero said as the four of them boarded the Cutlass. After taking their seats, Aero used the instructions recieved from Sparks to start the Cutlass. The Cutlass lifted off from the helipad and flew until it was out from underneath Atmo City. Aero then made the ship go into a steep climb. It passed through Velbus' atmosphere and after 20 minutes left it entirely.
"So, the asteroid Archibald is on is about a 3 day jour
Jetroids Chapter 23Chapter 23: The Truth
"So Archibald is alive?" Aero asked.
"Yes he is."
"He abandoned his laboratory on the surface of Velbus and left Velbus before getting killed by Vaxtus. Well, actually, he built a new body and and sent it away so that he could still live even after he got destroyed." Astro explained.
"How did you get to Atmo City?" Maisy asked.
"There was a teleporter in the asteroid lab that Archibald was working on. I went down to where it was and while looking at teleporter destinations, I found Velbus and got curious. I decided to use it to come here. However, the teleporter is still in development and could only send me one way, so I can't get back using the teleporter."
"Where is Archibald now?" Sakura asked.
"He is on an asteroid about 250,000 miles from Alterra. A long ways from here."
"If that's true, we have to go to get him back." Aero said
"How? Even we can't escape Velbus' gravitational pull." Maisy said.
Unwanted Bonds - 7
After the first hour of trying not to move, Leonardo felt his spine starting to protest.
Not enough yet, to risk changing his position and possibly waking his exhausted brother, but enough to become a notable discomfort.
After the second hour, sitting still like a gargoyle on a roof, it started to become really uncomfortable and the oldest brother started to consider moving at least his legs enough to prevent them from falling asleep. But he still didn't give in.
Not when he snuck a glance at Raphael's sleeping face,
Even deeply asleep, he looked so very exhausted. Lips parted and eyes firmly shut, though with a small frown of tension forming a line between his brows. Almost, Leo gave in to the urge of smoothing that away with his thumb, but he thought better of it and remained unmoving for a little while longer.
A little movement in the corner of his eyes caught his attention and instantly, he had to smile. The baby was yawning in his sleep, kicking his small legs before settling back
Infected - Chapter Four Sky often found himself in awkward situations. He tended to have bad luck with those sorts of things. Once, he and Ian had gone to visit Husky's home village. Sky forgot that it was rude to call Mudkips "fish". Another time, Sky managed to get himself locked in a room with a squid he'd cut one tentacle off of for three hours; the two didn't have much to talk about. Then, back when he was dating Dawn, Sky couldn't have had a worse first impression on her parents; but that's another story.
All in all, even though Sky had seen a lot of awkward situations, he could safely say that this was the worst yet.
"Um.... So..." Sky bit his lower lip as he struggled for words. "How's... You magic?"
"Good, good..." Seto said with a nod. The two both hesitated in awkward silence, as Tyler - who sat between them on the couch, stared straight ahead blankly. His arm had been fixed by Seto as soon as the Sorcerer calmed down. Sips took the liberty of
Infected - Chapter Two "Where are they?" Duncan muttered to himself like he usually does. "I know I dropped them somewhere around here..."
He kept his head down, scanning the forest floor not far from his castle as he searched for his beloved goggles. He hadn't been searching long before he heard leaves rattle above him. He had no time to move as he felt something heavy land on top of him. "Hey, watch-" He stopped short as he felt a blade under his neck. His eyes widened. "Wh-Who are you?"
"My name is Sky. I'm a Revolter, and I'm not about to go down to some scientist."
"Oi! I'm not just 'some scientist' buddy, I'm Lalna!" Duncan growled.
"A real scientist wouldn't get himself caught in a situation like this. I know you're infected. Anyways, is 'Lalna' supposed to scare me?"
"No, not at all." Duncan replied, letting his hand slip into his coat pocket. "But... If I were you... I would drop your sword."
My Alien Girlfriend (Chapter 6)
The sky had turned dark outside and I was in the kitchen, cleaning up the counter from where Yumi had lost control with the ketchup bottle.
Supper had been nothing short of insanity. As agreed, I had grilled burgers for the two of us so that she could experience what a burger tasted like. When I lit the grill, she touched it to try and see where the fire came from and burned her hand. When we finally got the burgers done, I asked if she wanted cheese or anything on it, and she merely asked me what cheese and ketchup were. She’d never seen pickles before and the only thing she seemed to recognize were the lettuce and tomatoes…but that was only because she mistook them for leaves and fruit from her own planet. In the end, she loved them. She asked for more, so I ended up making her a second burger…and that was when she asked if she could try preparing it herself. And that was how I ended up here cleaning up the ketchup from the counter and walls.
I sighed to myself and

Queen Jamillia jumped as the door to her study slammed open, looking up from her desk in alarm as three figures burst into the room.
“What is going on?” she demanded, coming to her feet. “Who are you what do you—“ she stopped as she recognized Padme. “—want.” she stiffened as she realized that Senator Binks was also in attendance. “How dare you?” she asked coolly.
“Queen Jamillia,” Padme began, her voice emotionless. “You are guilty of conspiring against Naboo and the Republic, you will be removed from the throne and your vestments stripped from you.”
Jamillia's eyes flared slightly as she looked back from the gungan to Padme.
“You have no authority to make such outrageous claims and accusations Senator! You serve by my appointment!”
“I have the same right of every citizen of Naboo.” Padme replied. “As to authority, we will have that sh
Unbroken Bond 2 Unbroken Family Chapter Seven"Hey, Mom, can I ask you something?" Kiki asked, threading her arm inside the sleeve of her cardigan.
Callie, folding up the hospital gown her daughter formerly resided in, turned around with a chipper smile as if nothing could make the emotion she was feeling disappear. "Anything you want, sweetheart. Fire away."
"Are you sure? Because I've been trying to ask you but it's always seemed like a touchy subject. I just don't want you to get upset or anything, you know?" Kiki felt her cheeks flare a little in embarrassment of her hesitation, but she also didn't want to cause her mother more distress than she already had.
But Callie merely broadened her grin and said, "I'll be fine. What is it?"
Clearing her throat, Kiki started, "Okay, well, um . . . uh, since the doctors said that I currently can't remember literally anything before yesterday, may I ask what exactly happened the day of my accident?"
Kiki immediately took notice of her mother's smile turning upside down. So it was a touchy

Chapter 3: The Past
Even on standard drive, my car easily outraced the storm. I stared at the vestigial foot pedals and shriveled wheel. A leftover promise of control. I couldn’t actually drive. My car had a license, not me, and the insurance prices for human drivers made it a luxury for the super-rich.
I leaned back in the chair. I wasn’t sure I wanted to go back to the ranch. I had my notes to one side with the rough, new questions of the day scribbled below. Mari was naturally underlined with all the stuff from Edgar and Ada accented with question marks. I tapped my notes about Kala as my eyes flicked between them and questions I had about Feldon.
Pressing my head against the window did nothing to resolve my bitter confusion. Soon I’d be back on the ranch. I’d have to face Feldon.
In my head, I went back and forth between imagining how I might confront him between playing it cool and not mentioning what I knew. I rub
Oh No Sally 22 : by Dru(For Michelangeli)
Within an hour of O Girl's announcement going nationwide, the Director issued a statement. He ordered all agents to remain on duty and to carry on as normal. He denied outright O Girl's claims of a conspiracy and insisted that the FBI was the finest law enforcement agency in the United States. Any attack on the institution he headed was an attack on freedom and justice. In closing he requested that O Girl hand herself in to authorities because it was time she answered for all the deaths she had caused.
Sally was very displeased at being called a criminal, and accused by the very man she wanted to bring to justice of being an enemy of the law. But these were things she had expected to him to say, so it didn't upset her all that much.
Over the next day she watched closely as the smarter FBI agents ignored their orders and handed themselves in anyway. They all knew what Sally was capable of. And they knew what the bureau was capable of. And so they knew there was only o

Colonel Panaka opened the door to his garden to find three hooded figures waiting for him. Nodding in greeting, he ushered the trio inside his home and closed the door behind them. Guiding them to the sitting room, he waited until his guests were seated and had removed their hoods.
“What'n dis about?” Senator Binks inquired, his eyes narrowed. “Miss Padme bein' arrested?”
Panaka sighed and tried to remember that he needed Binks' help. He didn't have anything against gungans personally, but their manner of speaking basic drove him crazy sometimes.
“The Queen is planning on asking the Separatists for help in isolating your people.”
Senator Binks' eye stalks quivered as his eyes narrowed.
“Shesa doin' what? What'n makin' her thinkin' dat the Separatists no takin' over de planet?”
“She's frightened about the amount of power your people are starting to wield.” Sabe provided helpfully.
Jetroids EpilogueEpilogue: Return to Velbus
Our heroes suddenly appeared inside of a darkened laboratory after teleporting from the asteroid. The lab was old and rustic though a lot of equipment inside still worked.
"What is this place?" Yuesbi asked.
"This is..." Aero started.
"...my lab. At least mine and Vaxtus's." Archibald finished.
"How did that Vaxtus dude come with us?" Yuesbi asked.
"I don't know. But the important thing is that he's gone." Sakura said.
"And if we're lucky, he'll never return." Aero said.
Archibald pressed the button on the lab door and went outside into the surrounding forest. Our heroes followed.
"I don't know how glad it is to see this place again after so many years..."
Turning to the others he said,
"Aero, Astro, Sakura, and you too, Yuesbi, you helped foil the plans of an evil tyrant who was bent on taking over this planet. I want to give you my thanks."
"Aww... Thank you." Yuesbi said.
"You are most welcome." Sakura said.
