As Jacques entered the old train station, he could hear the tinkling twang of a classical guitar playing softly from the massive vintage stereo speakers he had brought from his apartment in Montreal a few weeks earlier. He hung up his coat and was startled to find Tanita sprawled on the floor of the main hall, hidden by the big sofa they'd recently bought at a local thrift shop. She'd dragged the old gym mat in front of the antique cast iron stove, and adjusted the air vent to obtain the maximum amount of heat. She lay on her side, her upper torso flat on the mat and her hair spread all around her head like a walnut crest as she stared at the rafters above her.
“Harmonium,” he said aloud.
“Hmm?” she replied, suddenly realizing he was there.
“This song. It's a classic.”
She rolled upright. “Anik chose this CD,” she said defensively. “I like it,” she admitted timidly.
“It's their eponymous CD,” he said, smiling.
SnowAn excerpt from Book III of "The Kentauride"Snow by 914four
Breath billowing in a cloudy vapor, she galloped over the rise and reacted instantly as she sensed the threat, bare moments before she actually saw it. Instinct taking control, she veered sharply to her left, kicking up the freshly fallen snow. It was still light and fluffy, and fell back down like heavy dust. She notched an arrow and let fly before the red dot managed to swing around and find her, hitting her target in the throat and knocking him backwards. Smiling to herself, she charged through the woods as quietly as she could, searching for tracks in the snow and listening for any sounds of movement.
On her left, she discovered the tell-tale footprints that would lead her to her next mark. Slowing to minimize the noise she made, she stalked through the snow as silently as her booted hooves would allow. She wore white leather snow boots, a white wool skirt that covered her lower body, an olive green utility belt, a white pa
Life's New Changes Part 3Tiffany’s tongue hung out of the side of her mouth as she concentrated on the four balls sitting on the maple desk in front of her. Suddenly, Tiffany’s lower arms grab out at the balls, as second later her upper arms grabbed out at the balls, all four hands found their mark and she grabbed all four balls back to her body.Life's New Changes Part 3 by fares002
“Aha! Success,” said Tiffany, grinning triumphal with her accomplishment.
“You’ve gotten so much better Tiff. I’m proud of you,” said Ryan.
Looking over her shoulder and towards the door of her bedroom, Tiffany saw Ryan leaning against the doorway with a smirk on his face.
“What?” giggled Tiffany.
“Nothing, you’re just cute when you are concentrating hard on something,’ said Ryan. ‘You lick your lips and let your tongue hang out of the side of your mouth. It’s just a cute little quark that you do.”

Mahko awoke at sound of the call; sitting up groggily in his bed. He sat where he was a moment, stretching and yawning, before getting up and heading to the kitchen.
“Oh there you are!” a familiar voice exclaimed as the child walked into the room.
“Morning Uncle,” Mahko responded, sitting down at the kitchen table. Benny set a plate full of food in front of Mahko before sitting in a chair across the table from him. He waited a moment as the boy began to eat before saying anything.
“So do you remember what today is?” Benny asked looking at Mahko. Mahko thought a moment as he ate, trying to remember what the day was. “You don’t remember do you?” Benny asked; with a head shake in reply from Mahko. “Wasn’t last week your birthday?” Mahko nodded. “Then what happened a week after that when you were small?”
Appearances Can Be DeceivingAppearances Can Be Deceiving by Betawhofic
It was trouble enough dealing with one Doctor, let alone two. Peri didn't think she'd have to deal with herself, an other self, a different self. She stared at the other Peri, with her one hoop earring, biker boots, and bowie knife -- Okay, that was just weird...
How someone so tubby could move so fast she'd never know. She concentrated on keeping up with the Doctor and trying to avoid breaking her ankle on the rocks. "'Let's go for a walk,' he says. 'It's a beautiful day,' he says."
Right, walking does not include a 90 degree vertical surface. Her foot slipped and she yelped as she skinned her ankle on a boulder.
"All right down there, Peri?" he called back cheerfully.
"Just peachy!" she yelled back, gingerly examining her ankle. There wasn't much blood, just a scrape. She turned and sat down huffily on the boulder. He could just climb without her for a bit. She needed to catch her breath.
She looked out over the valley spread below them. She sighed again, this time in apprecia

The curtain open revealing an eight year old's bedroom. In the room is a bed, a shelf where books are stored, a drawer beside the bed and drawer on the edge of SL. A few clothes are on the floor. YOUNG ANNA, eight years old, comes running onstage along with ANTHONY, a man in his late thirties wearing glasses.
You can't catch me Daddy!
Oh yes I will!
ANTHONY flies his daughter through the air as she screams with laughter. He flips her on the bed and tickles her as they both wildly laugh. MELINDA, a short, stout woman in her late thirties wearing a robe and slippers along with curlers in her hair enters the room.
Keep it down you two! If we get another noise complaint we are sure to get kicked out of this apartment for good.
It's past your bedtime. Go to sleep now.
That's right we don't want you to snore too loudly in class tomorrow morning would we?
I don't snore!
MELINDA, in a loving w

“That’s Sargent Major to you sonny boy,’ stated Mr. Walker as we harshly walked past Ryan as he threw his hat towards Ryan. ‘Now where is our daughter? And what is so important that you said that it was imperative for us to cancel our night’s plan to be here for dinner?”
“Oh, come off the Sargent Major title with Ryan, Jim,’ said his wife Stacey as she walked into the apartment and took off her black leather coat. ‘It’s been what, nine years since you retired from the Army. He isn’t one of your soldiers.”
“It’s a sign of respect for people to call me that Stacey,’ said Jim. ‘Would you stop trying to belittle my 27 years of work within the Army ranks, it is really hard to for anyone to gain the ra
A New Mermaid's New Found Freedom“What am I supposed to do dad? Live in some kind of sewer?” spat Christina Smith to her father James as she stormed out of the front door, turning towards her dad who stood at the door. Christina stood at a modest 5’ 2”, yet she was a stunning young 22 year old woman. Her small but athletic build, coupled with a C-cup bust size, curvaceous hips, long strawberry red hair that reached down to her hips, and deep ice blue eyes would have caused any guy to drool over her as if she was his next Aphrodite incarnate goddess.A New Mermaid's New Found Freedom by fares002
Her dad, a tall 6’ 4”, slightly overweight red headed man was more concerned with what people in his church thought of him over his daughter’s happiness and feelings. “How dare you Christina! I’m supposed to look after until you can get a husband so he can look after you instead of me. “
“That is such a sexist statement dad. Don’t you get it; I don’t want to b

Up, up to the golden blue sky
To dive into the sea of divine clouds
It would be like the chilly wind's sough
Would it be the same as the roaring sea?
No, it would be better than a shopping spree
Please friend, let me grow my oh so desired wings
So that I can escape those annoying pings and dings
