Man vs FelineRending, tearingMan vs Feline by fenicksreborn
Blood dribbles down chin
Feline eyes meet mine
Over the carcass of the antelope
We go our separate ways
Hopes and DreamsWe come looking for hopesHopes and Dreams by fenicksreborn
that are in our dreams.
We come from our homes
looking for jobs.
We come to find family
and a better life.
We come to America
for all this and more.
We pass through Ellis Island.
Going through the exams,
tests, and all.
We just want to be Americans.
We never lose sight of that
because it is always in
our hopes and dreams.

TSPro-Fall of an EmpireIt was a moonless night when the hordes came. Hideous creatures that had the features of rats but walked upright like men. They struck terror in the hearts of all those who saw them.TSPro-Fall of an Empire by fenicksreborn
The Ratmen gathered on the field outside the city of Aleysta, the capital of the kingdom of Aurulia. There was one thought on their simple minds: conquest. They stormed the castle.
"We cannot hold them back!" the captain yelled.
The horde had struck just after midnight, seemingly coming from everywhere. The night watch had been the first to see them and had sounded the alarm.
"Sire, we must flee. The city is lost," Sir Ren said in hushed tones to the king.
"And with it, the empire," the king replied grimly. He sighed. They were on the inner wall and could hear the sounds of battle from below. Already, the outer wall had been lost. Surely the Ratmen were ransacking the city. "Alright," he
KEPro-The BeginningThe child stared into the darkest cave she had ever seen. She thought she could hear someone snoring from inside, but that could very well be the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks behind her echoing from within.KEPro-The Beginning by fenicksreborn
She crept closer. She had never seen this particular cave before, and she had been coming to this beach since before she could walk. She looked up and down the shore. Good, she thought, he's no where in sight. She did not want her pesky little cousin to see her. All she saw were the waves crashing onto the shore and the gulls hovering over the sea.
She crept farther into the cave. The walls were smooth and black, as in they had been blasted by some kind of fireball.
Startled, the child looked around. She couldn't see anything within the gloom, but she definitely heard something.
She crept forward some more and stumbled. She fell hard on to the roc
RTPro-Serenity and DevestationThere. She saw it. A beautiful stag that looked like it could provide enough food to last the tribe a couple of weeks. If they dried some of the meat, it would last longer. The pelt could be made into shoes or clothes for many tribesmen. The antlers would be good for trade, especially with the Summerset Tribe.RTPro-Serenity and Devestation by fenicksreborn
"Do you see it, Sylvie?"
"Shhhh!" she hissed at the man next to her. His name was Naoru and had been her best friend since childhood. He had golden blonde hair and eyes as blue as the stream before them.
"But Sylvie! It's beautiful!" Naoru whispered excitedly. A couple of the other elves began whispering too.
"Everyone be quiet!" Sylvana whispered harshly. "We do not want to lose this!"
Immediately the other elves quieted. The forest was quiet as well, as if in anticipation. There was a slight breeze, but the elves were downwind of the stag.

Forum Micro-fiction: MonstersMonster. Slayer.Forum Micro-fiction: Monsters by fenicksreborn
“Murderer is more like it,” he said in a disgust-tinged voice as the last shot rang out. Grimly surveying the carnage, he lowered his weapon. Shaking his head and running his free hand through his hair, he continued, “Not like more of these things won’t just pop up tomorrow…”
“Or the next day…or the day after that…” he heard from his left. Glancing that way, he saw a woman; girl really, in faded blue jeans and leather jacket.
“What do you want?” he asked, looking away again, keeping watch for more dead rising.
“Is that anyway to greet your little sister, huh, Nicky?” she asked in a singsong voice.
Turning towards her, he harshly replied, “You’re not my sister, Jesse. Now, what do you want?”
Deciding it was better not to argue, Jesse told him, “The boss wants to see you.”
He motioned her to lead the way.
Forum Micro-fiction: Nightmares“NOOOOOOOOO!” she woke up screaming, anxiety clawing at her insides like undead fingers from a grave.Forum Micro-fiction: Nightmares by fenicksreborn
She remembered the feel of their greasy hair and wet lips moving along her neck; of being held by large hands against a wall; the cold steel of the dagger against her throat; and the sound of her garments tearing as they were roughly removed. A thin red welt now flattered her neck like a necklace of shame.
In the grey early morning light, Locke dressed. Work did not stop just because one had recurring nightmares.
Donning dark brown boots and matching mask, she strapped on her ash bow. Smirking at the reflection in the mirror, she turned and left the room that had been her home for the last few months, a spring in her step.
It was time for a reckoning.
Forum Micro-Fiction: FairytalesRunning. She was always running. Though, given that she was someone who had a habit for acquiring items through less than legal means, she understood it. Not that this made her enjoy it anymore.Forum Micro-Fiction: Fairytales by fenicksreborn
“Stop! Thief!” she heard someone exclaim. Turning her head, her obsidian hair whipping, she collided with a solid wall of giant and fell.
Sprawled on the ground, she looked up through twilight bangs. The giant loomed over her, arms crossed, glaring at her with his pig eyes. She began backing up, as the guards closed in through the crowd, her hand brushed against something round and metallic. A bright blue flash, and she was gone.
There were gasps around her. Looking down at her hand, she found the amulet pulsing blue. They could not see her, not wanting to see if they could touch her, she got up and slinked away, picking pockets as she passed.
Seeing and reading this is kind of timely for me. You see, yesterday we went shoe shopping for me. I wanted a new pair of sandals and to look into a pair of shoes for the wedding. I also wanted a pair of ankle boots I had seen on the website, but sadly, those were not meant to be. Due to various things, I have to get flats and wide width. This makes it difficult to find decent shoes at times. I had already looked at the the bridal shoe offerings online, and while I hadn't been impressed, I was hoping maybe there would be something different in store. There wasn't. All the flats offerings looked like crap, while the heels looked gorgeous and pretty. In the end, I got two pairs of the same sandal, one in white and one in black.
But this made me depressed and it snowballed into a bigger thing. I ended up breaking down on Brian twice last night. Not only am I under a tremendous amount of stress with planning the wedding and making sure we can pay for it all, but with school, my health, and going through the bankruptcy. To add this on top of it, and I just don't feel pretty...beautiful. With all my health problems and the machines/meds that go with them, I tend to feel like a freaky monster of nature. I was wearing one of my soft, elastic headbands yesterday with some bobby pins to hold it in place because my hard headband has been making my headaches worse, but all I could think about was people seeing me and comparing me to Richard Simmons like my brother did one time, and it hurt. No, I shouldn't worry about what others think, but I do. I want to look good when I go out. At times it feels like the only thing I can control.
It's hard when I have days like this. It can be devastating when little things can have such a damaging effect.
If You Could DD Literature...Well, you were given the opportunity to show us exactly what you would feature if you were given a turn as a Community Volunteer and the results were fantastic.

Down to Business
At night we look up at the stars and wonder. Does other life exist in outer space? We are just one planet in a multitude of other galaxies in a universe that seems endless. Some would say without a doubt we are not alone and more intelligent life forms exist. Some believe we have been visited and aliens have altered humanity. No matter what you believe,
