One Way Out

I just want to get out of here. I’ve seen enough gore and grotesque scenes to last multiple lifetimes. How a virus can cause such devastation still boggles my mind.

And now I could be the next victim of the same virus. Locked in a room with Jack, a corpse, and a growing viral bomb, I don’t want to imagine what it would be like having to suffer like this.

But at the same time, dying would be the easy way out. And I don’t want to die.

Engraved Blackboard

I’ve finally reached my goal: The Black Void. I’ve traveled far and endured much, but I’m finally here. As much as I would like to avoid this incident, I sadly do now have a choice.

I must endure just a bit further before I can retire and retreat to my simple resting place.

I will make sure my engravings will not be in vain.

Armed with my white stick of power, I engrave sacred markings on it, moving as fast as I can. I can’t stand being in front of here.

Shaun in Resources

Most people don’t always like to go into work on a daily basis. However, many do it because they have responsibilities, or just like having money to spend for things they like.

Regardless, there’s one thing that every job has in common no matter what kind of profession it is: they all have that one guy nobody likes.

Shaun’s own bitterness came back to strike with vengeance for those who suffered by his hand.

Shakespeare in the Sunset

Nature’s always a pretty sight to behold. Catching it during the perfect moment can inspire anybody to just take a moment and think about certain memories about loved ones.

Relaxing in the daily sunset, watching the orange sun passing across the horizon is a photograph worth thousands of words. It’s even the perfect time to joke around.

“… Are you high, Rebecca? Because you sound so high right now.”

Winged Friend

Ever imagined what it would be like to have your very own talking bird a a pet? Having a nice little talking buddy with you in a room?

Now, what if instead of a bird, it was a Harpy that was roughly the size of a teenager and instead of talking, needed you for a favor? But hey, a Harpy is a kind of bird.

“Wait, are you sure that this is a good idea?”

“It’s the best idea I can think of right now. Obviously, if I was in a better situation, I wouldn’t be asking you do this for me.”

Sun and Moon

There’s a young girl who shines of gold who brings warm smiles to the faces of those who greet her. Time after time, she has no qualms about smiling for them.

One night, a sudden stranger approaches her and for some reason, she finds herself unable to smile for them. 

But why?

When the young woman extended her hand to help the person up, she froze up when she saw their appearance.

Casino? Can See, No.

Day after day, thousands of people believe that they have some kind of master, foolproof plan that can help them get rich with little to no effort. Very few actually put their plan into action and even then, many of them get caught and suffer the repercussions. For these two, they’re one of those people turned their plan into reality.

“I’m suppose to be a blind dude, idiot. I can’t see the door.”

Marcus gives me a light shove, “You’re not blind until we walk through that door.”

Lush Grass/Green Scales

The green scenery of a forest is always a beautiful sight to one’s eye. However, just because something is appealing, it doesn’t mean it isn’t deadly; dangerous creatures live in the forest, and one in particular likes to hunt.

Seeing the well developed deer brings a small grin to the woman’s face. Beginning the hunt, the woman quickly latches to a nearby tree and ascends high into the leaves.

Queen Among the People

The price for royalty is a high price to pay, however it does have its perks. Believe it or not, even royalty would like a break from the normal. Sometimes, in order to break away from the normal, they must hide among the those who follow them.

Being a queen who is constantly praised for her beauty quickly tires one out.

Ready to go, I sneak out of the hidden emergency exit behind my massive wardrobe.

Alex & Sam’s Daily Life – Was Flirting on the List?

Even though Alex brought Sam along to help with the shopping, Alex somehow ends up buying things by herself. Along the way, she runs into a very bold teenager who tries to get her attention. It doesn’t work. 

“So, what brings you here?”

“I’m buying groceries and things for my house.”

“Oh, that’s cool. I’ve been working here a few months.”
