Most crimes start with something small- but sometimes, its the opposite._____Sora could feel everyone's attention on him and frowned slightly at the feeling, squirming slightly where he sat cross legged besides Caroline who also had her attention on him.He mulled her question over; why had he saved her when she was the potential cause of the fire and tried to kill him?He then shrugged his shoulders. "Someone special once told me that 'no matter what we see on the outside, everyone is a being with a heart and therefore we must treat them as we wish for ourselves to be treated.' I guess that must have been running through my mind."Caroline nodded weakly. "I see. I shouldn't have tried to kill you based on my superstitions. Thanks for saving me.""It was the right thing to do." Sora smiled down at the womanCaroline's breathing slowed and Sora faced the still burning building with a furrow in his brow; shouldn't the rain have put that out by now?"Rowan...?" Sora's voice was wary as
Sometimes the villain is someone the hero forgot to save._____Six days later"So the Stone Circle is in this town, correct?" Sora asked, looking around in awe. Despite the worsening pain in his back, he could still appreciate how much the little town had grown in the last three years.Rowan, however, wasn't as fascinated. The divine smell of different foods hit his nostril before a scent he had never encountered hit him. Somewhere in the back of his mind, he recognised it and boy did he hate how ecstatic it made him feel.He tried to focus on the smell of food. "What's the grub?"Maximus opened his bag, took a small peek and closed it with a sheepish smile, muttering about how they were officially running on empty while Sora walked towards a breakfast place and took a seat, resting his now aching head on the cool surface. Maximus and Rowan followed his lead and sat on either sides of the Angel."How are you feeling, kid?" M
Everyone always tries their hardest to be a hero but no one ever mentions how one wrong step can make you the villain.______"Did you take the pill?" Dolan asked Leilani as they walked past a gloomy mansion which Dolan spared no glance. Leilani smiled with a nod. "Yep and I feel much better. Thanks again.""Don't mention it," he replied as he gently touched the only blemish on his skin. The action was caught by Leilani whose smile turned into a grimace as she remembered how she's responsible for that scar."I'm sorry." She rubbed the back of her neck sheepishly. "I don't know what came over me but I'd never willingly attack you with the intention of hurting you, Dolly."Dolan rolled his gold eyes and smirked at the female. "I think I look sexy."Leilani burst into laughter at Dolan's words. He put on a mock offended look, asking if she disagreed with the statement. Leilani had shaken her head while trying to recollect herself before
Go ahead and cry. Eventually, that frustration will become your fangs. Living means knowing sadness; use that sadness to sharpen the fangs of your heart._____Wynter let out a breath she didn't know she was holding as she examined Sora's back, her hands still wet from applying the salve. She noted how the irritation gave way to this white lines. She lightly prodded at one, frowning at the wince hat Sora gave with a look of pity in her eyes."Maximus? Rowan? Could you come over here?"The pair walked to Wynter who motioned at Sora's back. "The reaction seems to have reduced. Isn't that a good thing?" Maximus observed. Rowan lightly traced Sora's back. "Look at the thin white lines. That can't be good, can it?""it just means that my wings will actually come out soon." Sora sighed as he got off the bed and pulled a shirt on.Maximus grimaced as he remembered the first time that Sora had explained his punishment to them. He watched his friend's movements for some time before speaking. "
I didn't make the right choices. I made the wrong ones for the right reasons._____Dolan opened his eyes and let out a tired groan as he slowly sat up and stretched while taking in his surroundings. He noticed that Leilani was nowhere to be seen and frowned. "She left, didn't she?"Malum gave him a slow, lazy blink which made him chuckle as he urged the cat to get up so that he could talk to the person who is the reason he had chosen to camp in that particular part of the forest.He put on his cloak, sheathed his wand in the sheath on his thigh, sheathed the dagger in his leg sheath and placed his mask on his face. Malum then jumped on his shoulder and made no move to jump off causing the now known rebellion member, Hex, to smile beneath the mask.He pulled out his wand and waved them in the direction of the campsite and nodded to himself, certain that no one could see or trace their camp. With a bounce in his step, Hex set off on his latest mini-quest, to find Beryll.Hex was chewin
I can be the fire that lights your way or destroys everything in mine- you decide._____Since Leilani's encounter with that Jack of Rosewood character, it had come to Dolan's attention that something dormant had awoken deep within her. That or she just finds it fun to attack and injure him at any chance she got.At first, the attacks were a concern, now Dolan finds them as an annoyance and is just about ready to sacrifice a virgin in order to make the violence stop.He scowled as he looked into a pool of water as he stared at his once unblemished skin that had a scar running over his left eye. "None of the salves are working," he noted to himself.Malum bumped her head against his shoulder, letting him know that the cauldron was now empty. He looked at his reflection for the last time and let out a sigh as he untied his hair, letting his bangs fall over his left eye. Once he determined that he looked somewhat ok, he walked to the cauldron, removed ten blue pills and put them in a b
I can kill for you, I can die for you but asking me to live for you; that's impossible.______Dolan settled on a couch and let out a heavy sigh as he felt his body relax. Reign placed his head on the young sorcerer's lap, tail thumping against the floor as the latter scratched the back of his ear. Dolan stared at the book seated next to the dagger, picked it up and opened it, smiling at the title Ensnare the Mind: Non-Human Edition."Thanks," he muttered as he read the first chapter.After two hours Dolan placed the book back on the table, pulled his wand from its sheathe and waved it, causing a notepad with all the information he dubbed from the book as important to appear. He studied the notes with a frown, "Thinking is now making me thirsty. May I please have a drink?"Silence followed his words, making it seem like he was talking to himself. Reign tilted his head in curiosity just as Dolan stopped to scratch his head, ceasing when a glass of coconut milk appeared on the table ne
Since everything I did to help you wasn't good enough, destroying you was the only option I had._____"You two seem close," Rowan noted as he trailed behind Maximus who looked around before answering in an undertone, "Whatever do you mean?" "You hated Sora when we were kids.""That's because he'd always leave and I was afraid he wouldn't come back." "What changed?" "What's with all the questions?"Rowan's lip twitched as he rethought his next question; or in his case, his next attempt at learning something about the other, "Can't I be curious?"Maximus sighed in exasperation, "Rowan?" "Honestly, I'm just concerned seeing as when Sora completes his mission down here, he's going back to Heaven."Maximus glared at him and opened his mouth, ready to sharply ask what the other knew before chewing his tongue; he really was risking a lot for someone who would leave if the opportunity ever presented itself.He then found himself smiling at Rowan, "The least we can do is help him, no?""The m
