"So, this time, what do you want? “At first, I had my doubts about your ability to find the Lotus, let alone take it; however, now that you have succeeded, I desire it for myself. Am I being understood? "I guess so," I replied after pausing to look him in the eyes directly, temporarily diverting his attention.He hesitated before continuing, "As for you." I'm all right. "At the first sign of resistance, I'll kill you! In a low, somewhat sexy voice, I replied, "I don't mean to oppose at all. My right hand slid to the side of my pocket at the same time, thinking to myself that it could conceal a laser gun. Before anyone could know what was occurring, I shoved the prince away from me and fired twice. Two of the troops dropped on the ground dead after being taken off guard by my sudden onslaught.The soldier seized the chance right away, and with a swift motion of his arms, he was able to escape the people who were holding him captive. As the remaining soldiers quickly moved to the side a
All the monsters then collapsed into heaps of ashes or fried jelly that had once been their flesh. Nevertheless, for a brief period, their queen was still alive. She said, having reclaimed half the mermaid's form, "You should do the same to the witch who sold the world and you, Hotaru." Before it was too late and all the force was lost, I closed my eyes in a daze. I tried to picture this in every detail since I wanted to leave that place quickly and desperately wished I was back in my spacecraft, far from that planet. The world started to disappear and shift quickly in front of my eyes, as if in a magical vision, but I knew it was much more than that. Then, a loud hum rang deafeningly inside my skull.Even though it was leaving its solar system, I continued to perceive the rising sun as being surrounded by enormous sea waves, creating the appearance of an unsettling cosmic vortex outside my window to the cosmos. Gubimu was also present, standing next to me. I'm not sure why; perhaps
The scenery around me was stunning: On my right, in front of a crystal temple, high rocks surround a turquoise waterfall with a narrow river that wound through it. There lay masses of dark brown stone, with the river glistening in the sunlight such as the lustrous shine of diamonds. On my left, the calm, emerald sea reflected a massive sun rising above violet-hued volcanoes in the distance, amid a canopy of flame. White bird flocks were taking off in the air. Almond trees in full bloom with thick limbs crowned the singular panorama. I exhaled a sigh of relaxation since I knew I was at the ideal location, considering there was no land anywhere else in the universe as real and enchanting as this scene in my head.My one and only friend, Gubimu, was also present and, unbelievably, ruler of this semi-material planet, appealing as usual. He seems so naive and unpredictable, active, and restless sitting on a cliff, perhaps in a dream as we admired the magnificent daybreak. I walked up to hi
I quickly became aware that my eyes were open and saw very unfamiliar things.I stared at the boy. He appeared to be physically weak from the way his head moved.I wonder how he had slept, and for how long? Were there any voices and if so; how did the voices sound like? And the ups and downs, like the sound of breaking waves on pebbles? I watched him as he stretched out a clumsy hand to get his bread from his pocket where he always kept it and touched something slick and hard, perhaps glass. He was very surprised by this because it was so unexpected. He suddenly rolled over, gave me a brief momentary gaze, and then fought to sit up. I see that he was surprised by how challenging the effort was, which made him thrilled, weak, and dizzy.I helped him stand up as he rubbed his eyes. The puzzle of our surroundings was confusing to both of us but his mind was very clear, it was obvious that his sleep had helped him. He was not in a bed at all and I guess he will never know what a bed is-as
As I got back home, I saw Mama at the front door, waiting for me to come home. "Mai-bebi, why are you so late?" She cried.“I just visited some new library, Mama.” There's really strange stuff there, I thought; but of course, I never said it."How's your sleepover Hotu?""It was good, Mama. The girls are terrific.""I'm also hungry," I whined."Sure, baby. I prepared some sushi in the kitchen," she said.I look at our dining table, my mouth watering in hunger.The okazu looks so yummy.The primary okazu is typically a protein-based meal, such as grilled fish or a beef dish. A vegetable dish or one with more protein, like a bean dish, may be served as the secondary okazu. Typically, each item is presented in its container. Particularly the secondary okazu are frequently served family style, with each diner taking their share. Typically, when we eat our normal Japanese dinner, we take the rice bowl in our hands and then nibble on bits of various okazu. On occasion, we put the rice bowl
"Hey!"He shouted; and quickly I blew a fist at him, knocking him out.The other guards came at me while I punched the first guy in the face while elbowing the other one in his stomach."Stop right there!"Coming out of the dark is the woman again, wearing another flowing outfit.The other guys flocked in beside her as if there was a huge commotion."Let this old man go, or I'll kill each one of you," I said.They all busted into laughter, while the guards winced in pain."On one condition."The woman looked me up and down."This man will only leave if you fought all these guys and you have shown me what you got."I smirked. "That's alright with me."The bald guy stepped in closer.He threw a fist at me.I raised my head, striking back to his chin and punching his stomach.He flew back."Ow!"He whined."Is that all you got?"says the other one.Goodness, if they want me dead, they could have shot me right now.The other guy even undressed his coat and started playing punch gestures.
“What do you want?” asked the old man.“Please, I beg you.” Set us free.I wondered as my stomach grumbled and my throat dried up, how I had gotten myself into this situation. The hard, chilly floor echoed with a faraway thump that rang in my ear. Someone was approaching.I recalled slowly the night came. Had I fallen or was I the victim of a blow from him? As I see the figure moving closer to me, my tongue became firmly attached to the roof of my mouth. The streetlight that shined from behind the faceless, bulky man wearing the grey hoodie guaranteed a sense of security. He was now approaching. It was gloomy. How much time had I spent here? I was having trouble determining my surroundings as my head hurt. It was agonizing to be tortured. Stab. Smash. Bruise. As our attacker approached, I tried to filter out his terrifying thoughts and come up with a strategy. I looked around the blank space. Every object was tarnished by dust, which merely added to the already excessive clutter in t
Shin1995I work at a local coffee shop downtown at Barry's. I knew I had to step up because my father was always away, and grandma Wida is getting older and older by the day.I finished high school, but I could not put myself through college, considering the reality that I do not have much support."You are a warrior, my child." she would always say."You are born to be a fighter."Now by then, I didn't know what she was talking about, but as time goes by; I realized she was right.Deep within me is a surging power no one should ever know.Growing up after that memory in the forest was both a blessing and a curse. I immediately felt a power developing inside of me that is very unnerving. I remember this one moment when I sent my work application to Barry’s. After the interview, I saw a huge truck and there came out three guys, five steps behind their target who is an old man with grey hair holding a suitcase, and those guys began staring and nodding at each other. They planned it at
