My Best Friend ch 38Tommy growled as he grabbed the back of Tex's shirt. He heard every word he said about the baby. As soon as he said what he was thinking in case it was a girl, he was angry. When Tex mentioned the baby being ugly like him, Thomas thought he was going to lose it. Tex was always his favorite cousin, but now he was seeing Tex was nothing like he remembered. Here he found him trying to steal his wife and insult him and his child.
"Hey, Tommy", Tex with a smile. "Just talking to Mindy, here. She's a really nice girl, you know? You're lucky to have her."
Thomas growled. Tex was not going to fool him with all his nice words. He pulled him away from Mindy and dragged him out into the hall.
"Tommy, come on! There's nothing wrong with me talking to her, is there?"
He pushed Tex toward the stairs before walking back into his and Mindy's room. He glared at Tex once more before slamming the door. Thomas turned to Mindy who looked relieved.
"Thank you for making him leave", she said. "I know it soun
Young Fiery Spirit ch 3Twenty-eight year old Hector Barbossa smiled as he took a deep breath of fresh air. He had just arrived on his ship the Dark Wave to pick up food and supplies. Tortuga was his favorite place to make port. Salty wenches, juicy green apples and sweet rum and wine. What more could he ask for? It had everything Barbossa wanted except one thing. It wasn't like the ocean. Living on a ship was more exciting than living on land. You could be in one place today and be in another place tomorrow. You never knew what you'd run into. Everyday on the sea meant mystery and adventure.
Barbossa headed into town toward the nearest market to buy apples. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a young girl standing by a house with an open window. He shrugged. The girl probably lived there, so it wasn't his problem. Barbossa continued on his way to the market. As he passed by, he couldn't help but notice the girl's sleek and shining dark hair. Her dress looked dirty, but what could you expect from a child? Bar
My Best Friend ch 37Mindy and Thomas went down to the basement to check on the mouse used in the pregnancy test. There seemed to be no change. The mouse continued scampering around the cage, trying to find a way out. Thomas watched as Mindy sighed deeply. He laid his hand on her shoulder and gave a look as if to ask what was wrong. Mindy smiled and placed her hand on his.
"I'm alright, honey", she said. "I'm just disappointed this is taking so long."
Mindy smiled lovingly as she looked at Thomas. She was so proud when she heard him speak for the first time the other day. His voice was deep, but that was the only time he spoke. After that moment, he hadn't spoken again.
"Honey", Mindy said. "Did you like it when you talked?"
Thomas shrugged. It was alright, but he didn't feel like doing it again. He did it for her and only her. Mindy chuckled as she ran her hand along his mask.
"It's okay", she said. "I won't make you. Want to go back upstairs?"
He shook his head and nudged her toward the door.
"You want t
Young Fiery Spirit ch 2"Mama!" Joanna cried running toward the house. "Papa!"
She stopped a few feet away from the house. Where was Crystal? She was playing outside a few minutes ago. Joanna looked around finding no one. Could Crystal have wandered off? Did she run away from the fire? Was she smart enough to run and get help? No matter. Joanna could go look for her later. Right now she had to get inside and see if her parents were still alive. Joanna covered her face and kicked open the door. A huge burst of fire flew out of the door. Joanna covered her mouth and nose and went inside.
"Papa!" she called. "Mama! Papa, where are you?"
Joanna got no answer. The smoke was so bad she could barely see anything in front of her. Where could they be? Joanna went into the den. She saw nothing but flames and smoke. The furniture was burning, but no people. She went into the bedrooms. Maybe they could've gone in there. Nothing. Where else could they be? The kitchen!
The heat was intense and the smoke was v
My Best Friend ch 36Thomas sat on the porch steps as the rest of the men looked at him. He felt so embarrassed that he had no idea where babies came from. Something told him that it had something to do with him.
"You're confused, ain't ya, boy?" Charlie asked.
Thomas slowly nodded. He looked at Nubbins and Chop Top who were giggling like mad. Grandpa Sawyer sat in a chair looking half-dead as usual. Alfredo had the same stupid look on his face he always had. Tinker was giving Thomas a sly smile. Drayton has a proud smile on his face. Uncle Monty looked like he could care less. Tex, for some reason, was looking unhappy. Charlie patted Thomas' shoulder.
"Well, Tommy", he started. "Do you know what a baby is?"
Thomas shook his hand a little. He didn't know much about babies, but he knew what one looked like. But where did this new one come from? What did Luda Mae mean when she said Mindy was expecting one? Was it coming from somewhere?
"This baby is made up of you and Mindy."
He tilted his head confused. Mad
Young Fiery Spirit ch 1Joanna Flames was your average twelve-year-old girl. Emerald green eyes, long wavy black hair that reached the middle of her back. She loved the outdoors; climbing trees, looking at the clouds. Most of all, she loved the sea. Every day Joanna would sit outside her home and watch ships come and go to her hometown of Tortuga. All her life, Joanna wondered what it would be like to sail around the world on her own ship. Just like her father.
Joanna had a small family. There was her father, Christopher Flames, former pirate captain, now a family man. Her mother, May Flames, a barmaid now a stay-at-home mother. Last, but not least, there was Crystal Flames, Joanna's eight-year-old sister and the youngest of the family. Joanna loved them all dearly.
"Papa!" Joanna called. "May I go into town?"
"What for?" Christopher asked.
"I saw a cute puppy at the pet store", she answered. "I want to see how much it's for."
"If it costs too much, you are not getting it", Christopher said.
"He's right, dear
Vanguard, Chapter 1: DuncanDuncan's Journal: Day 1288
I consider myself a good man. I respect women, elders, my equals, and the dead. I say a morning prayer, and an evening one. Hell, I even thank the gods for a meal, instead of immediately chowing down in the voracious manner as the other soldiers here do. By all logical means, I should be in paradise. No really, not just because I'm a good man, but also because I should be dead by now. So I ask myself: why, oh gods up there, have I ended up in hell?
1288 days. 1288 days of my life have been spent in this misery, and I'm beginning to lose faith in the glory I was promised. Some of the rookies still live in their ignorant bliss, but I've lived long enough to realize that there's not much glory to find here. “Sing the songs of glory and march into battle—-join The Crusade today!”. Such were the words of the posters The Crusade has spread all over The Mortal Realm. Gullible fools practically stand in line for these songs of glory that th
