Hour upon hour I watch your peaceful sleep,
I listen to your heartbeat, I listen to you breathe.
You are my greatest treasure, I dare not close my eyes,
For fear I might thus squander this precious gift of life.
My mind is one divided: one part duty, best part you,
My world forever altered, where I has lost its meaning too.
For now you are my centre, you are my brilliant sun,
I draw warmth from your warmth, and grow cold when you are gone.
But Im the worst of soldiers, and give in to sleep at last,
And as I drift into deep slumber I never realize
That two eyes have now opened, and watch me in their turn,
They watch me breathing slowly, they watch my dreams unfurl.
A Mother's Love: 1
In a cave in the northern regions of Sthreldrum, a drakenum, in her human form, slumped to her knees before the blood-drenched nest of clothes where her hatchlings once rested. They were her babies. Her darlings that she brought into the world through a father that had been slain by a dragon-slayer weeks back. She had not expected for a creature to get past her obstacles in the front of the cave to come in and slaughter them. No bodies were there and by the horrid scent, she knew it was a basilisk that had devoured her hatchlings.
Her long, snow-white hair draped in front of her chest and covered most of her reddened eyes. Tears slid down her brown-skinned cheeks from her blue eyes with no pupils within. She couldn’t even make a sound at the moment as her gaze remained on the blood. She could smell her babies. It made her gut clench and eventually her breathing became rapid. Consumed in sorrow, she remained like a statue on the flo

Mikey closed his eyes as he slipped the noise canceling headphones over his ears. Everything was going great. He’d let himself into the studio and had immediately gone to see if anyone had donated any money while he'd been away. Last night he'd thought a head, placing a small jar under the mail slow so any coins that were dropped in would not roll away and miss being collected. his faint smile had become a wide grin when he'd found that the jar was half full; and after pouring out the money and counting it his smile had become even wider when he'd found that he's raised almost $200 since taking over the station 3 days ago.
Taking a deep breath Mikey watched for the equipment in the booth to finish warming up before starting; pressing the green button to start the broadcast. "What's up Lairsy College? Once again it is I, Michelangelo; your lord and master of the airways. Just wanted to give a brief shout out to everyone who dropped off money to the st
A Borrower's Quest: Half Way There Part 1“-We don’t tolerate free riders on this ship!” –shouted the captain angrily at Fern and grabbed her arm quickly so she couldn’t run away. Granted, there weren’t many places to go on the ship wildly drifting in the middle of the huge river. The waves wildly thrashed on the side of the wood body.
“-Please!”-she started. “-Don’t throw me to the dungeon! I swear I’ll pay when we get to Roumen!”
The journey from the desert to the middle lands was extremely dangerous. The only relatively safe way was by sailing down on the Dune River. Its water was very unpredictable. It took a very experienced captain to lead a crew through the waves, there weren’t many like that, but Casey was one of them and he asked the price for his expertise. He risked his life every time he made this journey, the ship could be pulled down by monsters, catfish, pikes, they could be attacked from above by birds of prey or the worst possible sc
A Mother's Love: 2
Minutes later the blue fluffybottom floated over to him with a frown. She pushed at him to wake him up, but he did not move or make a sound. She placed her ear close to his face to listen or feel his breathing. The pixie clapped happily before she floated up to the drakenum that had followed her. She pointed to Gib with a smile, yet the woman stared in shock at the boy. “B-but he is so small. How could he manage to do such a thing?”
The fluffybottom shrugged. The drakenum sighed as she got to her knees, bowing her head close to get a better look at Gib. “He has their scent of them, but…it’s incredible to believe he was the one to defeat such fearsome creatures.”
Her doubtful gaze softened as a smile crept across her face as she gazed over the tiny boy. Her fingers delicately pushed the mask and hat off to reveal more of him. He had long, pointed ears and blond hair. His skin was dark from most likely l

I can't believe it.
I simply can't believe it.
Scourge threw me out of our house. A house we had both worked so hard for and he just throws me out just like that! I don't even know what I did wrong. Did I insult him? Did he feel like it was time the two of us part ways? If so, than shouldn't he be the one moving out and not me?! I'm homeless now because of him.
"Damn you, Scourge. We're twins, aren't we?! How can you just kick me out of the house like that?!" I muttered to no one in particular in anger as I walked down the street. The large and heavy sportsbag I had swung over my shoulder contained some of my personal stuff and clothes, the only things I had left now after being kicked out of my own house.
It was unfair. Maybe it had something to do with that new girlfriend of his, Fiona I think her name was. Either way, I wasn't going to come back in. You'd think that, as twins, I should be able to put my foot down and claim my place in that
