Suits and Charm"Why the fuck do we gotta wear suits?" Guy complained for the umpteenth time, pulling at the cufflinks Aukusti had lent him with a stern warning to take care of them. Albert could have told him that the warning would have been lost on him, but what fun would that have been? At the moment, however, he was feeling anything but amused. Guy wouldn't stop complaining about the suits, Aukusti was taking his long sweet time in the bathroom, and as he glanced at his watch he made a low sound in his throat that sounded like a wild animal about to pounce as he realized they were going to be late.Suits and Charm by weaveroffantasy
"We're going to be late, damn that Aku! And stop complaining about the goddamn suits! We're going to a nice, expensive restaurant, you gotta wear one." Albert snapped, glaring at him.
From all outward appearances, Albert Wicket seemed like a mild-mannered man with blond hair swept to the side in a careless manner and square-rimmed black glasses that made him seem like an easy mark although, at the momen
Cave of Blood and Bones VIIt was a cave of bones that promised to lead them into what seemed to be the very depths of hell itself. Leith glanced at Cameron, uncertain, the amusement gone in lieu of wariness and trepidation.Cave of Blood and Bones VI by weaveroffantasy
“Those are- actual bones?” Leith asked. He was referring to the bones that decorated the entrance. Bones and skulls set against the wall of dirt as a warning that it wasn’t just a cave, that it led into the depths of something evil.
“Hasn’t anyone told you the legend of this place?” Maian said with a teasing smile. “This cave here is supposed to be thousands of years old. I heard that before those nasty-looking things took up residence here, it was used for storing ancient treasures which are supposedly still in there today.”
“Like that sword,” Leith piped up.
“So how did those creatures end up in here?” Cameron asked, edging to the entrance warily, his gun held out in front of him.
“Who knows. Maybe they’re
The BayouThe bayou was terrifying at night. Wherever Franky looked, things moved in the branches, softly rippling in the water, rustling in the undergrowth. Owls hooted "who who who" and Franky could swear he heard the slithering of the pythons that were rumored to be around here somewhere. Aidan had said that they grew up to be fifty feet long and could swallow whole buses. Franky wasn't as big as a bus; he was the smallest kid in the home, after all, and he'd be like a tiny mouse if he came across one of them and he didn't want to be eaten.The Bayou by weaveroffantasy
"Can't we just go back?" He asked entreatingly at the back of the bigger boy leading the way. Leo stopped and turned around.
"Scared already?" he teased. "We haven't even met the demon yet."
"I don't want to meet the demon." Franky said and he could already feel the tears burning the backs of his eyes. He was being a crybaby but he was scared. He didn't understand how Leo wasn't.
"Then you shouldn't have come." Leo said callously. "You knew whe
A Spark in the Dull Embers“Cole!” The voice yelled, startling the blonde-haired teen out of her deep sleep.A Spark in the Dull Embers by weaveroffantasy
“Hm?” she managed to mumble incoherently, suspended between reality and her dream.
“Are you going to school or not?” The angry voice called out from the other room.
“Hm,” Cole mumbled again, already drifting off to sleep once more. She was trying to go back to her dream again but it was already fading away and the only thing she could manage to hang on to were indefinite fragments that made no sense. That still didn’t stop her from going back to sleep though.
The next time Cole woke up was because her phone was ringing. She turned her head and reached for her beside dresser, eyes still closed. “Hm?” she muttered into the phone.
A laugh. “Are you seriously still asleep? It’s already past ten.”
“Shaddup,” she groaned. She was lying on her back now, her free arm slung across her closed lids as if somehow that woul
