Once upon a time, there was a great leader who wanted his people to be the smartest, strongest, most wealthy people on Earth. Everyday, The Great Leader went out to the balcony of his palace and spoke to thousands of them. But instead of tell the truth, The Great Leader would lie to his people, making everyone believe that they really were the greatest, when in fact they were not. One day, a soldier escaped The Great Leader's Kingdom, being mortally wounded by his own brothers during his daring attempt. On his death bed, the soldier told the rest of the world how horrible his country really was, without his Leader's lies there to trick them. Because of that, The Great Leader decided to punish his people by telling them even more lies, ending their contact with the rest of the world so they wouldn't hear the truth the soldier had revealed. Over time, things got so bad for the people living in The Great Leader's kingdom that the rest of the world decided it had to step in. They went to The Great Leader's country and told his people what things were really like until everyone decided he wasn't such a great leader after all. Finally, after watching his country's legacy fade, and his people learn to hate him, the once great leader decided he could do only one thing. So he used the most powerful weapon he had to destroy himself, and all the people that once belonged to him, in a final flash of light: so that the world would forever remember, that 'he' was the last great ruler, of a once great Kingdom.

Once upon a time there was a young and delicate woman named Orora, who was very sad and could not figure out a way out sadness. Everyday, she would cry from sunrise until sundown, sobbing loudly at times or weeping softly at other times, but never stopping completely. Aside from crying she only did the things she had to do in order to survive. She would eat little bread and cheese, drink some water, bathe once in a while and comb her hair and change her clothes. She would sit in the sun for 20 minutes every day, between 12:00 and 12:20, precisely. She would sit there timidly, crying some and reading a book with strange letters and writings. One day, I could take it no longer and asked her why she would choose to squander her beauty, youth and health and imprison herself in her tears. Because of that, she was forced to give it some thought. She was crying while thinking, trying to find an answer and failing. Until finally, I took her hand and told her to come with me. We walked slowly for two hours or so, until we reached the beach. It had been her first time there, as she never left her house. She was so amazed she stopped crying for a minute and smiled and held my hand real tight. "I had no idea there was something out there" she said, "If only I had known...." and I kissed her softly, and we made our home there forever more. By:orell

Once upon a time there was a little fairy who would do her best to spread joy everywhere she went. Everyday, she would flutter around, looking for opportunities to help everyone- squirrels, gnomes, birds and even humans. She would grant wishes to everyone she saw just to bring a smile to their faces. Because of that, she was loved by everyone and they would always look forward to see her. One day, a wicked witch, who was jealous of our little fairy captured her and locked her in a cage by powerful spells. She wanted the fairy for herself and would not share her with anyone. Days passed and the fairy was all alone in her cage, thinking of her friends, who not having seen the fairy for days were starting to get worried and anxious. They started looking for the fairy in every nook and cranny. While flying north in search of the fairy, a little bird finally saw her by the window of an old creepy looking house. She immediately flew closer and seeing no one else around in the room, she stealthily flew towards the cage. Seeing the bird, the fairy was relieved. But the bird still couldn’t open the cage since it was locked by the witch’s spells which could only be broken by the death of the witch herself. The fairy instantly devised a plan with the bird and asked her to summon all her other friends. The bird flew back to the village chirping loudly. She called everyone the fairy had ever helped. And everyone was willing to come to the fairy’s aid. They all went towards the witch’s house carrying spears and wooden torches. They finally saw the witch outside the house, tending to her plants. Before the witch could notice the advancing army of the fairy’s friends, she got shot by the spears and was set ablaze with fire. Until finally the witch was dead and the cage flung open. Our fairy was now free. She quickly flew to her friends and they all cheered merrily. By:Dhirr

Once upon a time there was a demigod who ruled over a small realm of the multiverse. Everyday, he plotted and schemed to expand his dimension to include the mortals, for he had a particular longing to protect these finite beings and raise them into an awareness where they too, could harness the powers of the deities. His trouble was that the realm of the mortals was strongly locked down by the dark curse of the archfiends, which could cast him into the void of eternal inexistence if he tread too close to his desire. One day, the Universal Consciouness of the entire multiverse approached this demigod, pondering his intention with the mortals; begging him to stay clear of the potential abolishment he faced if he were to tempt winning over the curse. The demigod pleaded with the Universal Conciousness to allow him the power of protection from the curse, to finally be able to attain dominion over the loves of his desire... Mother Earth and her surroundings. Again, the Universal Consciousnes appealed to this demigod, for the curse could not be broken, as it too served a divine purpose. It explained that without the darkness, no mortal could ever learn of sacrifice and loss. They would never learn to appreciate what little they have, and would always incarnate into greed and desire, never grasping the spirit of being present for another. Because of that, the demigod knelt down in meditation, then lifted his arms to the infinite sea of divine being, and screamed 'I will not let them go!, they are my family! I AM THEIR SOUL!'. The demigod burst into the realm of the mortals and spread his field of power over all of Mother Earth, adorning the air and water of the whole galaxy with the consecrated molecule of holy knowledge, until finally, every being was embraced by an immaculate transendental state, finally realizing their true nature. The demigod entered the heart of every one of them, endowing them with the power of divinity to exist only in love, for love, to love. And then, bellowing loudly to the Universal Consciuosness, stated 'If freedom of these beings means my ultimate sacrifice, see this as my offering. If adorning the mortals with the spirit of love does not earn me protection from the curse, I accept my fate. But let my family free, the mortals have been enslaved long enough.' By:J. Lee

Once upon a time there was a dreamer who always dreamed of sharing her dreams with the world. Everyday, she would spend countless hours dreaming up the craziest ideas. Things like kid spies with exploding lollipops or the feeling of death. But she found herself unable to share her ideas for she was not only afraid of how people would respond, she was also not an artist, movie maker, or songstress. Without a creative outlet, her ideas were stuck in her head with no way to escape. One day, she was looking for a slightly more productive way to fill her time because dreaming didn't exactly pay the bills and she really just wanted something to do. With job options in her little village being very limited and her creative abilities extremely lacking, she didn't have a lot of choices. On this particular day, a friend who is an artist and made beautiful drawings, suggested that she try her hand at the pen. She expressed that she was unable to draw, paint, sketch or anything of the likes and she began to cry out of frustration and sadness for her lack of creative abilities. Her friend smiled gently and replied "no silly. The writing pen." Because of that, she picked up a pen and started to write. She feared that no one would care what she had to say but she just wrote anyway. Until finally, she decided to give it a try, to let others read her work. Her friends all said, "don't be shy!" Her writings were a hit among all of her friends. And her mind was a peace with her thoughts in the end. By:Pesky Amanda ~ Quill Nominee

Once upon a time there was a story, not just any story, but a story where the good guys win and the bad guys lose, sometimes there would be lessons to learn, and sometimes it was for the audiences entertainment. Not all stories can be like that. Everyday the people of the world would be consumed, no matter what happened it was as if they were lost to life itself, they worship idols, and fame, riches and popularity. The people who could not or would not suffered for many a time it didn't matter who. One day a normal person, one who would worship or proclaim excitement to many if not all of these things, this person changed their perspective, it all began with the kindness from someone who suffers from being different. The person gave this main character what little money he had and said that his time here was done, he said it was all he had but a single dollar, 'how could he live in this world' thought the main character, 'with such low money, doesn't he know that money is something you worship and hold as the most treasured?' The person thought to himself as he began to question the reality of this. 'Also, how would he know of what happened to the singer, who is the most popular, who got dumped, I never heard of him before so he obviously wasn't at all popular, I tried to know everyone, fame is everything! He had no idols, what is wrong with that man?' Because of that the person in this story couldn't sleep well and ended up with a terrible and wonderful dream, in it an unknown figure dressed in rich clothes and special aura, it was so happy that he wanted it but he couldn't reach it, the unknown person spoke out to him, "Do you remember me? I hoped I could speak to you again and tell you that I appreciate the gift I received from you." The dreamer spoke out to the voice in the dream exclaiming, "What gift, I never gave a gift in my life! I have the knowledge to know that by gathering everything I get and treasuring my riches I live with the best." Answering the main character the silhouette reveals himself as the man who gave everything away, he was dead but he looked very alive, "You gave me the gift of giving, without you my wonderful gifts would have been put to waste. I want to thank you for the shame you set aside for me, and the kindness you showed to me before I left your world, I appreciated it," Smiles away the man.
"What kindness, I tried to ignore you and I coughed on you for the sake of humility, and as for shame, I stood dignified with the power of my popularity and riches!" Yells out the main character to his dream. "You went out of your daily routine and gave me a use in the end of my day, you showed me yourself without hiding and you also kept to yourself, I felt happy when you didn't want me to give as if I was going. And before I go," the man exclaims stepping forward and showing him the now healed scars from his real-life death. They were healed and it seemed as if he made them happy, "You have so much potential so don't waste it. Goodbye." The main character frowned at this and realized the error of this world, when he got up the next day he gave everything away and lived out the rest of his days using what he learned from the old man, he kept that one dollar bill, and he could feel the hearts of everyone it touched. Until finally he met the same fate as the old man, He gave away the dollar to some rich snob just like the millions of people before him, and he changed the rich person's life forever, as for his death, he got hit by a stampede on Black Friday many of the rich never got what they wanted or -needed- but the main character. Just like the old man before him he received the gifts of luxury at the end of his days, because he was humble and kind when everyone expected rich and rude. The cycle can continue forever until the world is changed, Thine end. By:Sean

Once upon a time, there was a young man who lived in a small country. Every day or most days, he would hope to leave his small country and escape the homophobia he faced there on a daily basis. He had a really tough time going through his days. He was always teased, and pelted with bottles and stones and called nasty names. One day, he was online on a gay dating website and had received a mail from a guy who lives in Europe. He had gotten many emails from guys living abroad, but nothing ever came from them. He had made several friendly contacts, even a good friend with whom he keeps contact with today.
This guy, however, particularly took great interest in the young man, and because of that wrote to him telling him that he would come to his country for a visit. This made the young man excited, but he knew it could be just like other guys who have visited him in the past, spent their two weeks of holiday and left. Upon arrival of this guy, they instantly had a good connection with each other. The next two weeks they’ve had a lovely time together, and then the man had to return to Europe because his vacation was over, and he had to return to work. This made the young man sad. He thought that would be it for him and this guy, and to his surprise they kept contact. The man was interested in the young man, as to his life’s history, and how he copes with the day to day struggle he faces in his country. Christmas was fast approaching and to the young man's surprise, the man returned from Europe to spend the Christmas holidays with him. The young and thought this to be rather odd. He knew they had a good contact going, but he never thought it was that good enough for the man to fly all the way from Europe just to spend the Christmas holidays with him. Until finally, the man asked him, if he would like to return with him to Europe and live there. This proposal surprised the young man to unexpected proportions. Indeed it is what he had hoped for, but for it to happen this way baffled him so. He was in the middle of his first semester at college. “I can’t just pick up and live like that!” He replied, “I have a job and I’m attending college which I won’t be finished with until the next three years!” “Please think about it sweetie.” The man implored “nothing will happen overnight, and I would like to prepare things for your arrival back home.” Though hesitant, he knew regardless how crazy things had panned out, he thought to himself that he must take the opportunity because he knew a golden egg like that came along once in a lifetime. He wasn’t keen on the mans’ drinking habits, after all, he grew up with a foster father who drank like a fish, and abused him as to add salt to the wound. He didn’t want to go through that experience again, especially from the man he had a romantic relationship with. April the following year came, and he was busy writing his paper for his critical thinking class. Knowing that the college would soon come to an end, he thought that it would be best leaving during the break that came after. He had little time to wrap things up. In the first week of may before the holiday break, he left to go meet the man in Europe. He had a one month visa, which he thought gave him enough time to get a feel of the country, and also living with the man to know what kind of person he really was. Eight and a half years have now passed. the young man still lives in Europe, but no longer with the man, he had left his country for. The relationship lasted fours years until the had found someone else from another country to fall in love with. The young man now shares a flat with a very good friend who is like a mother to him. Things have changed so much over the past years, with the young man having to learn a lot about life, and the stresses that come along with it especially in a strange world that is not his own. He’s still single and seems not to be in a rush to get into another relationship. For now, he’s just contented with finishing his education while trying to find his place in life. By:Malum Sibley

The woman she tackled picked her up, bridal style, held her close, smiled, hummed softly, and for two years she nursed the goth girl and brought her back to life, a smile on her face.

Once upon a time there was a Gatekeeper named Poston, though to anyone you’d ask, he was just a street guy named ‘Port.’ His hair was unwashed; his clothes pilfered from garbage bins, and his hands and face, a perpetual smudge of filth and scars. He did have one striking feature however, and that was his beautiful, crystal blue eyes. Anyone that saw him was left with the feeling that in all that filth and neglect, God himself had not allowed a single spec of dirt to fall on those perfectly blue eyes.

Everyday he’d come to the shelter on 52nd and although he was friendly to everyone, he would simply have his meal and proceed back to his home.

Home was just outside of town, at the start of a bike trail named Snake Canyon Gulch Trail – called that probably because the town was at the bottom of a deep gorge and the trail wound from there, like a snake’s back through a circuitous route bordering bare rock face until finally opening up onto the great plains far above.

One day a rich German couple came to stay on their vacation, and of course, to ride the trail with their Über expensive European bicycles. Gunter and Greta Görtz had a secret, and although nobody in America – North or South– would have recognised what that secret was (aside, of course for university professors or priests and the like) Port very much did!

The gate that Port kept, or guarded, or whatever he did after the town when about its business, led to Hell and although Port wasn’t exactly an upstanding citizen, he certainly wasn’t a God damn demon, nor did he go in for such non-sense either.

As it turns our, Gunter and Greta had souls with them, in a red satchel I believe. Now this part is very sharp in my mind, after all, everyone knows that Europeans are prone to carrying satchels – not purses, clutches or man-purses like we Americans do.

Because of that, Port found himself in the position of being the last line of defence between these hapless bastards finding redemption or eternal life without air-conditioning. Now understand that he’d been in this position for centuries, and had looked rather odd when the natives had passed through hundreds of years previous. Seeing a dishevelled white man sitting on a trail in the middle of nowhere was bound to throw people off, and the Lakota weren’t any exception. This went on – as I’ve said, for a rather long time – and to be fair, not a lot of people tried to get to Hell through this path, most using the one alcohol, drug addiction or binge watching The Walking Dead provides – but I digress.

Until finally on this day – it was early July I think - (Message redacted as persons or situations involved are likely to reveal details not in line with the overall security of this nation and its intelligence agencies.) By:Mic

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Anne who liked to spend time talking to plants and animals even though she knew they would never respond to her. Every day, she would wake up and greet her beloved dandelions and tulips and, at school, she would always spend her time near the oak tree, whispering things that concerned her and asking for its opinion. One day, a kid came near her and asked her why she always spoke to the trees and animals. She told her that because of that she would have no friends in the future and that she will spend her life alone. "But I have my flowers. And they will never leave me. I will always have them listening to me and caring about me". Because of that, the children at school condemned Anne as a foolish girl to whom they should never talk to. Nobody would talk to her for weeks and weeks to come. Until finally, they understood what she had told them. It was only the small flowers that would care about her and listen to her. All her friends had abandoned her and so it is only to the flowers that she could speak. By:Christiana Galani

Once upon a time there was a little fairy dancing in a meadow. No one could see her but a young boy. Everyday, he hid behind a fallen tree trunk and watched the little fairy dancing to a music that chimed as airy and light as her delicate dress swaying with every turn of her slender body. In his hiding place, the boy began to sway too. The music seemed to fill every ounce of his being. But then, he stopped. Looking down at his torn, washed-out, much-too-short pants, his skinny legs and dirty feet, he felt shame and sorrow. Never. Never would he ever dance with an ethereal creature like her. If she could see him, she would disappear. His longing sighs seemed to fill the meadow. And yet, the fairy danced on. One day, the young boy arrived late at the meadow. The sun was setting, adorning the horizon with spectacular glows of red and orange, with silver streaks reaching like feathers towards the snow capped mountains. Because of that, he got distracted. He jumped at the sound of a crystal-clear voice beside him, “Want to dance with me? Dance, until we reach the horizon?” Eyes wide, he looked at the fairy. She floated beside him in all her beauty, leaving him breathless. The shimmer of her wings, her sky-blue eyes and her dress swaying with the slightest movement of her body. He was frozen, still. Smiling, she beckoned, “Come, beautiful boy, dance with me.” Hesitating, he took one step, then another, and another, and with every step his appearance changed. Until finally, his beauty matched hers. Joining hands, they danced, feather like, into the silver-lined horizon. By:Anne Arthur

Once upon a time there was a man named Dick Casey. Everyday, he met with broads who slid him some spinach to find their lost sisters or a flattie would toss him some berries to help catch the latest serial killer.

One day, Casey pulled the collar of his overcoat up, smashed his fedora on his head, and hurried out to put the screws on a goon by the name of One Eyed Bart. Casey suspected the cat was working with Big Eddy down at the docks. And they weren't bringing in fish.

"Hey there, Bart," Casey growled, stepping out of the shadows behind the old hash house. Bart dropped his gasper and reached for his bean shooter. Casey lifted his own gat and shook his head.

"No need to burn powder. I ain't lookin' to haul you to the big house. I'm here for the rumble on a catch Big Eddy is expecting tonight."

"I ain't no stoolie," Bart spit onto the alley floor.

Casey slowly reached into his pocket, pulled out a yard, and held it out to Bart.

"I ain't interested in yer scratch, neither. Kale ain't no good to a stiff." Bart sneered. "Now if you don't mind, it's time fer me to drift. Got an appointment to keep, you know." Casey's gaze narrowed as Bart's backside disappeared inside the restaurant.

"Because of that," Casey mumbled, stuffing the cabbage back into his pocket, "I'm gonna have to to tip a few with Max." Casey sighed at the thought.

Casey tossed some sugar at a hack. "Fifth and Garfield," he told the cabbie. Tina's was the most popular gin mill on the east side of town. It was also the best place to find Max on a Friday night.

"Casey!"

He grinned as Max sauntered toward him, fingering the ice around her pipes. "It's been a long time since we've bumped gums," she purred. She grabbed his arm and leaned in to smack his mug, leaving behind a red smudge of lipstick.

"Tina, how 'bout a cup of joe?" Casey sank onto a barstool, forcing Max to release his arm.

"And I'll have a jorum of skee," Max winked, "Since my friend here is paying."

Casey sipped his javva, "Word on the street is there's a certain party goin' down at the docks tonight." Casey stared at her over the rim of his coffee cup.

"You're putting me behind the eight ball, Casey. You know what'll happen if I sing..." she trailed off, her lips puckering into a pout.

Casey bought her another round until finally, Max pulled a card from her bosom, grinned, and slid it across the counter. "I might be a bunny but you're just too cute to resist."

With a frown, Casey took a slant at the scribbles on the card. "Thanks for the drinks, toots."

According to Max's information, the big event was supposed to take place at seven in the evening. Casey took to the shadows at six. With narrowed eyes he watched as men started creeping onto the docks.

"You've been made, Casey!"

Casey jumped and swore as a Roscoe pressed against his back.

"Hey, boys!" the voice called, "Look what the cat drug in!"

With a rough nudge, Casey was encouraged to move forward. His eyes flickered over the group of people gathered at the dock. Their eyes narrowed as he stepped from the shadows.

"Dang it, Casey!" Big Eddy grumbled, crossing his arms over his massive chest, "This was supposed to be your surprise birthday party!"

As the gun shifted away from Casey's back, he tipped his hat at his friends and family, "Surprise!" By:Genipher

Once upon a time there was a wicked college instructor. Every day she would torture her students with rules. Students had to sign contracts at the beginning of the semester agreeing to abide by her absurd classroom rules, in order to stay in class and complete the course. The list of classroom rules was as follows:

1. Be respectful to me and your classmates. To gain respect, one must give respect.

2. Cell phones are to be turned off and placed in backpack. Withdrawal symptoms will dissipate in 3 days

3. Be ethical. This means no cheating, no plagiarism, no lying, and knowing right from wrong.

4. No sleeping in class, and no rolling of eyeballs

5. No talking or whispering in class. I can read lips.

6. There are no excuses allowed for missing class unless you are having emergency brain surgery, or are hemorrhaging from every one of your body orifices.

7. No one ever said life is fair. So get over it and stop your whining.

One day last week, like radar, my hearing zoomed to a particular student who was muttering obscenities about the course and me. I abruptly stopped lecture, and the rest of the class immediately came out of their stupors.

“Mr. Holland, would you care to share your comments with the class?’ I politely asked.

He did not answer me but tried to stare a hole through me. I stared just as fiercely at him, trying not to lick my lips in anticipation at eating him alive. The rest of the class collectively held their breath in anticipation. Because of the unacceptable behavior and his refusing to answer me, I called Security to remove him from the class. The stare down contest continued until finally, someone from Security came into my classroom.

As he was being escorted by Security to the door, I said, “Mr. Holland, it would behoove you to become a part of the solution in this decaying society, instead of being an intensive pain in the ass. The students roared in laughter.

I am happy to report that Mr. Holland learned a life lesson. He learned that with every action, there is a consequence, sometimes good, sometimes bad.

He has since been an exemplary and stellar student. By:Mari McKee

Once upon a time there was a forbidden love, tied together by fate herself. The two came from other kingdoms, who's differences have now caused a long and heavy bloodshed. Everyday, the two lovers would meet in secret, behind the old oak tree, away from sight. There they would whisper softly, just loud enough to hear, as the two kingdoms brawled. One day, while gathering on that late October night, the couple was found by old Sir. Hollow, the wisest elder for thousands of miles. The old fart just smiled his aged smile, blessing the two for bravery. "While everyone is unnerved, these two young'uns found love." The senior croaked. Because of that, the teens made a plan.

Once upon a time there was a small female squirrel born into a family of six others. She was the last to be born and as such was the lowest in the pecking order. Everyday, her family would go searching for food and visit the neighborhood bird feeder. Being the littlest, she would routinely get chased from the feeder by her larger brothers and sisters and have to root among the husks of seeds at the bottom of the table.

One day the human that filled the feeder came out as she was on the floor. The little squirrel shrank back in fear, but the man seemed kind. He gently threw a small handful of sunflower seeds to her after he filled the feeder. The hungry little squirrel was stunned but settled down to eat while keeping a wary eye on the human. Her brothers and sisters quickly returned when the human went back inside and she was chased from her small pile of seeds from an older sibling only being able to consume a few in the short time the man was outside.

The little squirrel continued to root through the husks occasionally gleaning a small nut or seed that had fallen to the ground or gone unnoticed. Over time she looked forward to the time each day the man would return to fill the feeder. She would edge a little closer and each time he would throw her a small handful of seeds or a small nut or two.

Because of that, she started to put on a little weight and her position in the family hierarchy started to rise. She was not left to root among the husks and was able to hold her own on the table. She continued to fill out as she had more access to the additional food on the table. The man continued to return each day to fill the feeder, always kind with soft soothing words for her.

Until finally one day, she chose to simply watch as her brethren ran off when the man returned to fill the feeder. He poured a small pile in front of her of sun flower seeds and then proceed to fill the feeder. The man remained outside within a foot or so of her while she made short work of the food. The man held a large peanut out to her in his hand. Her whiskers twitched and her gaze remained on the man. Tentatively she reached for it taking it in her mouth and then sat back on her haunches using her front paws to hold the nut while she eagerly tore at it, and thus a brand new friendship had formed...

Once upon a time, there was a young boy who lived in Korea under less than convenient circumstances with his less than convenient mother. Every day, he was forced to stay in his mother's lavish home all alone with nobody but him and his apathetic housekeeper to not really keep him company while his mother was off acting, filming commercials, and overall just being too occupied with her fame to even properly send him to school. One day, a strange boy that always seemed to be smiling appeared, peeking his head over the wall of his back garden while he was writing under the shade of one of the trees in the large open space. Because of that, he and the strange boy always met on that high wall overlooking the quiet garden until they were older and they realized that the warm feelings they held for each other was love; sadly, the strange boy moved away and suddenly the son of the mother who never truly cared was left all alone once again as many more years passed him by.

Once upon a time there was a young prince named Percival who lived in a castle high above a small village. Every day, since his twelfth birthday, Percival dreaded the day he would be forced to marry the young girl his father had chosen for him. Magna was pretty enough, nice enough, and she would one day make someone a good wife. But not for Percival, for he loved another—a shopkeeper’s daughter from the village. Percival sometimes entered the village dressed as a common laborer; how else would he know the subjects he would one day rule? When he entered the shop and his eyes fell on the blue eyed beauty, his heart filled with love. He had heard of love at first sight, but now he was a believer. He dreamed of the day he would marry Livia. One day, Percival spoke with his father. Trying to change the king’s mind, he told his father of his love for Livia, and that Livia loved him, too. But the king would not relent. Instead, he threatened to send Livia away if Percival continued with his silly notions of love. Because of that, Percival had to hide his love for Livia from everyone, even from Livia. His father did not make idle threats. Besides, the king was well within his rights to pick his son’s wife, and the king did not take kindly to anyone who refused him. Percival would be forced to marry Magna, and there was nothing he could do to change that. Until finally, when Percival was summoned to the king’s bed chamber a year later, and he learned of his father’s impending death. When the king drew his last breath everyone left the chamber except Magma, Percival’s intended. Seeing her smile, Percival knew she was imagining herself as his queen, draped in the jewels confiscated from the King’s conquered lands. Instead, Magna took from inside her silk robe a scroll and gave it to Percival. Unrolling it, Percival read what his father had written. Words that would forever change his life. All promises of marriage between my son, Percival, and Magna are voided with my death. Percival may marry a girl of his own choosing. Percival's eyebrows knitted when he scrutinized the handwriting. His father did not add swirls to the ends of his S’s like the ones in the scroll. He also did not curl the bottom of his R’s. He had seen this handwriting many times before. He looked at Magma and saw the mischievous smile that brightened her eyes. He leaned in and kissed her cheek lightly. “Thank you,” he said. Percival hurried from the chamber and into his room where he took the laborers clothing from its hiding place. By:Bikerider

Once upon a time there was a small kingdom called Lamonde Arbre, located on the island Pantazarl, which traversed the skies of Sartalfheim, never being seen by the dwarves or those that visited them. As small as this kingdom was, it was the most important kingdom in all the nine realms. Everyday they would come, the legions of darkness, to the walls of Lamonde Arbre. They came to destroy Urdanbrun, the well of fate and the only thing separating yggdrasil from the dark realm. There were only two beings that knew of this place, Freyja a goddess of Vanaheim and Odin god of Asguard.

Once upon a time, there was a small boy named, Christopher.

Every day he walked the short distance to his school with his classmates. His best friend was Dually and then there was David, Toby, and Suzie.

One day, half-way to school he spied a wallet on the ground next to a bush. Excited, he dashed over and picked it up. All of his friends crowded around, Dually said, "Open it, Chris!" That is when Toby chimed in, "Yeah! Open it." Christopher opened the wallet and there was a man's driver's license in the front. "Is there money in it?" Suzie asked, "Look to see Chris." David added excitedly, "Maybe there's a million dollars in it!"

Because of that Christopher opened the wallet and there was a lot of money in it. He didn't know how much but it looked like a lot. Dually nudged him in the arm, "Count it!" Chris took the paper bills out of the wallet and counted them. They were all twenty dollar bills and they added up to over $880 dollars.
Chris put the bills back in the wallet and folded it in half. "What are you going to do with all that money?" Suzie said wide-eyed.
Chris didn't know, he didn't even know what to say but stuck it in his back pocket, and continued toward school. They walked the rest of the way to school in silence. Christopher couldn't get his mind off the driver's license. It had the owner's name and address as well as his picture. He wanted to keep the money but he knew who the owner was so it didn't feel right.

All day Dually, David, Toby, and Suzie kept asking Chris what he was going to do with the money but he didn't reply. He just couldn't shake the feeling it wouldn't be right to keep it. Chris knew the street on the driver's license. Dually kept telling him,"Just take the money and throw the wallet away." Toby was saying, "Finder's keepers, Losers Weepers." Then David said Chris was stupid if he returned it to the guy on the driver's license.

At the end of the day, they all headed toward home. Christopher stopped, pulled the wallet out of his back pocket. Looking down at it he said, "I know where this guy lives because of that I am returning the wallet with the money in it." "You're dumb!" Toby yelled. "Yeah!" David added, "You're so stupid!" Until finally, Chris looked at them, "I am returning it to the guy on the driver's license, it may be all he's got. It might be his grocery money and rent for the month. I can't keep it! It isn't right." All of Christopher's friends stood blankly staring at him.

They all followed Chris to the house on the driver's license. Chris walked up to the door nervously and knocked on it. When the guy in the picture opened the door and Chris held out the wallet, "Is this your's mister? I found it down the street." The guy took the wallet, opened it and saw the money was all there. Then without saying a simple Thank You, he shut the door. Chris slowly turned and walked toward his friends. By:Lassie

Once upon a time there was a person who lived everyday worried about what the future would bring. He would worry constantly about everything life could possibly throw at him and this would bring him into very dark places. Everyday, with out fail, our young hero would wake up and curse the day he was born. He developed a real hostile and jaded attitude towards the world. One day, on a whim and out of curiosity he picked up a book written by a very wise man. In this book our friend found wisdom that he had never realized he possessed. Because of that, he searched out more books by this wise man. Then he searched for book written by others like him.

Once upon a time there was a very bad disease that infected more and more people. I have it on good authority that it was sexually transmitted at first but eventually it could be contracted in other ways. There was no cure. First, it would lead to infertility. Then, it would lead to cancer. Eventually, it would lead to death. By the end of the third Earth era, the government implemented laws to rid the disease. Firstly, there were mandatory blood draws each week for all people not only to check for infection but also to track the disease's advance. Secondly, a person could only sleep with someone of their same age or older to avoid endangering the new generations. Thirdly, all those who were infected were quarantined until such time as they died. People weren't too upset. The disease took decades to kill it's host. They were sent to an island where they had the best of everything. People rose from poverty to shameful wealth in an instant. Millions were ripped from the working class and vomited into the top five percent. Everyday, more and more people from the underprivileged class intentionally infected themselves to live out the rest of their lives on Sunset Island. Many who were infected started charging bitcoins to infect those who wished to retire. One day, they found a cure. I also have it on good authority that there was a cure all along although not commercially viable. All of the people who were still inhabiting Sunset Island were reintegrated into society. They were given menial jobs much like the ones they had before they retired. Since the lower class was quickly perishing and because no one from the middle class wanted to take their place the upper class feared rebellion. I often wonder if the cure would have been found as quickly if cheap labor hadn't been an issue. Because of that, I do not want you to sell your inventions to people who will not use them for the greater good lest they become hoarded or misused. I will always love you Zorlok. Until my dying day. For years I was hesitant to tell you of the events which transpired before you were born until finally, I decided to leave you this letter. Heed my words and pass them onto your children and make sure they pass them onto theirs and so forth. With you always. X.o.x.o., Dad. By:C Dizzle

Once upon a time there was a trio of trees, the color of blood. Everyday, the trees stood very still, not even the wind could move them. A horrible story surrounded them, stating that they were actually three sisters who had been murdered but the cruel lord of the land. The story went that the lord had accused them falsely of the black arts, and, as he had them on the executioners block, one of the sisters cursed him, that the next time he killed an innocent wrongly accused, they would punish him. Where their bodies were buried, three trees grew, blood red, and oozing the thick liquid. The trees grew for years, poisoning the soil, poisoning the river. One day, the cruel lord tried and executed an innocent of a crime that, seemed, even to the villagers, bogus. He didn't care, for anyone who defied him would feel his wrath. With a sinister laugh, he ordered the executioner to behead the boy. Because of that, a horrible screech was heard from the direction of the Blood Trees. The blood from the three trees began to flow from the branches, creep it's way to toward the village. As the blood snaked along it's path, horrible whispers were heard, wicked laughter and this sent shivers down the villagers' spines. They all fled to their homes, locked themselves inside, afraid of what was coming. The blood wound its way toward the lord's feet, and that was when the dark, thick liquid became alive, taking on the forms of the three sisters. "We are here to punish you," the said, reaching for him. He screamed in terror as he realized the curse was true. The curse on him was true . He tried to run, stumbled as he did so. But he ran nonetheless, even the the blood was following him faster than he could run. And, still, he ran. Until finally, the blood caught up to him. Starting with his feet, it wound its way up his body, covering every inch of him from the outside in. He choked to death on the blood. And to this day, the trees are no more. By:Kelly Lee

Once upon a time there was a Sorcerer, who lived in his palace of vanishing glass with his team of apprentices and a group of attendant Elves. The Sorcerer's palace was called the Palace of Seasons because the exterior of the glass palace took on the color of the season in order to remain invisible.

Everyday, the Spirit of the current season went through the palace and decorated it with her colors, leaves and flowers, flora and fauna filled the air with aroma, all the surfaces were decked with flower arrangements, birds twittered over the casements and balconies. In icy winter, the walls of the palace looked like frost, the floors were like ice slabs, penguins on the balconies. In spring, the scent of fresh flowers filled the air with aroma, all the surfaces were decked with flower arrangements, birds twittered and trilled over the casements and balconies.

One day, when the Sorcerer was in his Library teaching his apprentices a lesson on Pentacles on the autumnal yellow floor, the looking glass darkened ominously. All the windowpanes took the hue of blue-black ink in broad daylight. The glass orb darkened too, and smoke began swirling inside it like a churning tornado. The Sorcerer summoned a protective sphere shielding his young students and he himself strode over to the menacing, swirling orb. He recited in a singsong voice some incantation, and two burning, slanted eyes and a terrible mouth appeared within the orb. The Sorcerer turned pale, but the lines of his face became resolute and sharp. The horrible face looked at him, and said in a icy voice, "Usurper! I shall drive you out of my Palace. Your time has come."
The sorcerer replied, "You belong to the Dark Depth. Go back, you have been banished by the OverLord for your wickedness." The Sorcerer slashed at the apparition with his wand and lightning cracked at its wake!

Because of that, it seemed, that the Shade vanished and everything returned to normal. The Sorcerer summoned the elves into the Library. Then he started an elaborate ritual. the students drew a very complicated Pentacle at his instruction, then the Elves and the Sorcerer started incantations with burning of incense and candles. This went on for hours.

Until finally, the candles burned fiercely bright and the incantations reached a pitch. Then a bright sphere of light appeared at the centre of the Pentacle. Everyone sat down in prayer and a pleasant but powerful voice boomed, " Have no fear. You have kept the health of the seasons, they dance happily through your walls and casements. This is the ultimate Spell of Life. The Fume of the Dark Depth will never win. He may threaten, but be united as you are now. He will never regain his power to destroy the beautiful Earth. " Everyone cheered, and a brath of flowery scented wind danced through the room. By:Quest-the road is ahead

300th Entry -
Once upon a time there was a parallel universe. Please understand - we use the term Once upon a time for two purposes. The first is because on your Earth, in your time, this phrase is commonly used by humans to signal that the Chai’lle (storyteller collective) about to tell you of things which happened BEFORE. The second reason we say Once upon a time, is that if you are approved to leave this Kdhaisch (sacred hut) to go our world you will associate everything you see as belonging to the era which came BEFORE in your world.

You will observe no iPods, earbuds, electronic tablets, or computers here. There are no smart phones with their related Apps, no home appliances or nor any electronics. We have clouds in multiplicity, but not Cloud system. We travel without the aid of motorized vehicles and flying contraptions. There are no artificial heaters or coolers, no power plants, no windmills or solar panels. We have no toilets, no sewage stations, and no water treatment plants. To wit, everything you use to run your modern world does not exist here and couldn’t function properly even if it did.

You are going to ask us, as your kind always do - How came you to be here? Our answer is that we know not. Everyday, another of your kind arrives, in a hut such as this. It seems the Kdhaisch is a por-tal of which draws entices some of you, drawing you here. Some of you have told us the por-tal functions much the way your STONEHENGE does on your Earth. Do you know of this STONEHENGE? Yes? Ah, good. Came you through it to arrive here? No? Alas, many of you did not. We have wondered, how is it some of your kind know of your PLACES OF POWER, while others do not? Others of you dispute that there even are PLACES OF POWER…but we digress. It is of no importance for the moment; it is a matter for those greater ourselves or even the of Chai’lle, besides.

One day, “we will talk of many things/shoes, ships, sealing wax and kings”. You know this reference? Excellent. We are amused by your Chai’lle LEW-IS CARR’OLL. We have been made to understand that he is not a collective, but a single entity, a WAL-RUSCAR-PENTER! A most amusing creature, to be sure. Forgive us, yet again, we digress. It is something of a character flaw for us. For now, we must help you to understand the situation in which you find yourself. You have been transported to our eArth for a purpose we know not yet. Because of that, there are RULES you must be made aware of and live by, ‘til your purpose for BEING is clear.

The premier, vitally important rule is that for the moment, the Kdhaisch is your home. You must not attempt to leave it. You must trust us when we tell you that to leave before preparations for your Ny’Imeptae (embracing) are complete will be fatal for you because you will die. Your premature departure will be inconvenient for us as your demise will cause a disruption the Riiesld. We’re told some from your world describe the Riiesld as ch'i. You are familiar with the term? Good, good. Many of your world fail to understand how actions they take in eArth affect us all. Disruptions can be calmed, but when your kind cause them through the willfull-est disobedience…well, this does not please us. Indeed, it pleases none of eArthskind. When eArthskind are displeased, our environments also become d ‘scli – unhappy.

The next rule then, is you must try to curb the propensity of your kind to toward rebellion for the sake of rebellion. Again, disrupting the Riiesld, particularly for frivolous aims does not please eArthskind. When Riiesld grows fractious and needs soothing it demand sacrifices of eArthskind. The sacrifices are often more punitive and exacting than your kind can be made to fathom aforehand. Bringing Hei’Nyopti (balance) back to eArth is always achieved in the end, but as another of your single entity Chai’lle - Lady Antebellum says, “It Ain’t Pretty”.
During your stay in the Kdhaisch, you must attempt to learn our language. That is why we give you our words, freely. Rest assure, eArth is your world now you are here. There is no return of your kind to Earth once you have come through the por-tal. Others have not believed us when we tell them thus. Please to live, you must believe, your departure from eArth, indeed your departure from the Kdhaisch will only transpire as a result of your Ny’Imeptae into eArth or your death at the hands of eArth. Would that we could return you to your Earth we would. Less would be the disruption of our own eArth.

Your Ny’Imeptae will happen when you love eArth and eArthskind, when eArth has found your Hu-Maaure (personal harmonic destiny) and you go willingly to your path. Your kind often thinks that eArthskind rather than is finding your Hu-Maaure for you. It will be difficult for you to walk the path if this thinking takes root and persists in you. We have no priests, no clergy, no shamans. There are no kings, politicians or nation states. There are no military entities, or law enforcement units. No thought leaders, no business tycoons. There are we, eArthskind - Chai’lle, j’ooshme (healers) and Osjikatee (makers). We give each other what we need. eArth gives us all else.

You must mourn for your losses. Grieve for those you’ll see no more. Invite many into your Kdhaisch as you seek your new path. Many will befriend you, all can instruct you. All can gain instruction from you. You must study diligently. Learn well and learn more and more and more. Immerse yourself in the eArth and gradually let go of Earth. As your grief lessons, you will become scli – happy. Until finally, eArth will pronounce your preparations completed and all eArthskind will embrace you. You will emerge from your Kdhaisch forever, Then will be your Fui Ny’Imeptae, Embracing ceremony. You will only ever return to this Kdhaisch to guide another Earthling to the path. At such a time as that, you will explain to the new arrival as we have explained to you: By:everyjones

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Lizzy, who lived with her mother in a cardboard box just big enough for two. Every day Lizzy and her mother would pack up their few belongings, fold the box neatly, and head off to a new location. One day while Lizzy’s mother was away looking for food, Lizzy found a box of crayons. She wanted to surprise her mother by decorating their box, so she colored the outside of the box blue. I think it needs some lines to make it look like bricks, Lizzy thought. She then colored green grass along the bottom. Yellow flowers were drawn onto small window planters beneath cut out windows, and to Lizzy, it looked perfect. On the walls inside the box, she drew family photos in bright picture frames. Her mother’s favorite color was purple, so she used a violet crayon to draw a large rug by the front entrance. She stepped outside to look at her creation. “What a beautiful cardboard kingdom,” she said as she went back inside. Their home looked so different. Because of that, when Lizzy’s mother returned to where they had placed their box, she began pacing around in a panic. Lizzy was watching her from the small cutout window, not understanding why she looked so scared. Her mother paced and paced, until finally, she caught a glimpse of Lizzy looking through the window. Relief flooded through her as she made her way to her daughter. “It seems you’ve been rather busy today,” said Lizzy’s mother. “Yes mommy. I’ve built us our very own cardboard kingdom.” Lizzy wasn’t sure, but she thought she saw a tear fall down her mother’s cheek as she stepped inside onto the colorful purple rug. “A kingdom indeed, my child… A kingdom indeed.” By:Sandy Aspen

One day, after much discussion and argument, they declared a new, independent nation founded on the idea: the United States of America. Because of their devotion and vision, the country grew and prospered. The people became strong and enjoyed the fruits of their labors. Until finally, the idea faded, complacency set in, and the hunger returned.

307th Entry -
Once upon a time, there was an unusual book. It looked like other books, but there was an exception. Everyday, its content changed. Some pages were born, some disappeared, some remained stable. Their number always was the same: 1758. Whoever opened the book could read a story in their native language. And the story was so fascinating that the person could not stop reading until they fall dead from exhaustion. Many people tried to destroy the book but it had a secret power. When someone touched it, it opened a special page, and one glance was enough for the person to forget about everything and start reading. After that, they were as good as dead. One day, an old man approached the book. Long he stroked it with his gentle fingers, touched its rough cover with the tenderness of a lover. Because of that, the book could not open its tricky page. The book gathered all its patience and waited. The old man stepped back and started making a campfire. The fire did not scare the book: it had seen a lot of flames. It launched it's trap and lay still. It was waiting and giggling silently, and the old man was messing around with the cruller. Until finally, he took the book and threw it into the fire. The old man was blind. By:Ellie An

Once upon a time there was a half man, but mostly boy-child who wandered forth on his own, ready to conquer the world the way his father, and father’s father did. Everyday, he would suit up in the suit and tie up in the tie, and look to the mirror and ask the often unrecognizable face there-in if today was the day, or if another narrow miss at betterment awaited. One day, after one of those kind of nights were he thought he was a knight until he woke up feeling battered and discarded (and disregarded) like the tin man’s heart, the mirror answered, “to thine own self be true,” or maybe it was an old Bob Seger tune, that landed him in his own personal hell/Kathmandu. Because of that, he tore off his tie and dropped his suit in a corner and decided to write the next great novel that would show the lost generation the path to their own destiny. Until finally, between typewriter bells and red slashed pen-strokes, he realize the face in the mirror, was really the faces of his family, and you and me, and all who have realized we can only conquer the world if we stay within the accepted margins.

310th Entry -
Once upon a time, there was a girl who always ate cookies, all day and night. She will make sure she left no trace of biscuits on her dishes before she heads to bed and sleeps. Every day she will be following that routine.
A man came towards her and dropped on one knee and open a Cartier box and revealed a diamond ring surrounded with gold. It was so bright and beautiful, and on the cushion, it had bits of cookies, her mother's best dish-- actually the only dish her mother mastered.
One day, however, that all changed and it was her wedding day. Her acquaintance, her family, her friends, her husband's family and friends and what she will like to call the ones-you-invite-just-to-fill-the-place people. After her wedding she never touched a biscuit, neither in a house or a restaurant; it was as if it will infect her with a virus that she will never get treated from. On her wedding day, the seats looked like double chocolate-chip cookies whilst the tables looked like raisin biscuits and the background and the music was not one she is used to listen to on a regular day, the music was of food and it seemed to be for children. The crowd were not laughing with her at this ridiculous theme, they were laughing at her. Because of that, she hated her life and the biscuits and never wanted to do anything with them. She did not complete her wedding; she did not get to the man, or who she thought as the one. She came to the conclusion that it is impossible for anyone to admire her or love her, because she is obsessed with the cookies, the only dish her mother mastered, and the last dish her mother made. She kept crying in her room all day long, hoping that all of this will end, but to her, it felt like it was eternity.
Until finally, one day, a kid knocked on her door, he was tiny, a fragile, little boy who looks lost, but his mother was behind him, and he came inside the room whilst his mother waited outside and told her, "You are amazing, Claudia. Your mother is proud of you." He said laughing, but she realised he was not laughing at her, but he was laughing to make her smile, and she did smile. She felt the happiness that he was trying to send to her.
She looked at him and told him, "Tom, thank you for making me smile, but nobody loves me, I mean, I will never get married..." She was beginning to sob, but Tom sat with her on the bed and traced away the tears on her red cheeks.
"That is not true, you know, I love you. The others are just stupid, they think you are crazy for loving your mother, but you are not, you are precious and my mother and I will continue to love you!" He said it with complete determination, as if any word she will say next, will not make any difference to him.
"Your love is all I need." She said with a smile, "However, Tom, I decided to leave, I am sorry."
Claudia, a beautiful young lady, who weighted 54kg, with a height of 162cm, died because of the people's mocking. She committed suicide...
"She will be happy now, Mother." Tom said. By:Shaima


311th Entry -
Once upon a time there was a single cell, which began to divide. Quickly it doubled again and again until, in the dark recesses of a subterranean cavity a sound was heard. A clicking, as of claws, echoed from rock walls and a tiny cough momentarily purged the surrounding shadows. A humid mist surrounded a bulky form and from behind the dragging rumble, like a log bouncing along the rocky floor. Everyday, for days on end, the sounds grew less faint, more clear as the creature came ever near. One day, a glow began to hint at the cavern's end and he grew impatient as the light became more bright. At last he lumbered into sight. The view was brilliant, filled with light, and space and magical sense of sight, as golden beams of sun rebound from jewel-like flowers and verdant ground.

Entranced by beauty all around the creature breathed in air so pure that, even though his bellowed lungs were filled with smoke, he felt cleansed and belched a small smoke ring that rose until it could be seen above the glade. Because of that, a sudden flutter of a hundred tiny wings, air bound, drew his attention from the ground. As his lidded eyes cast up he saw the fliers grouped in units, military garbed their armor flashing, swords in hand they awaited slashing. He, the newly hatched one drew a breath and unknowing opened wide a mouth so vicious that it daunted all and sundry, but instead of fire and lashing talons he smiled which released the heavy tension and the Queen, with guard attended, welcomed dragon if his intention was as friend and not destruction.

The new-hatched one was truly awesome in his own right, and ancient wisdom held in his lineage told him of the debt he owed the fairy folk from ages past and bending scaled leg he bowed and fealty he vowed. The Queen accepted his obeisance and forged a bond, with fay-magic amended by the dragons power, and so ascended to her bower.

The dragon, even though newly made, held ancient knowledge and was content to dwell here in the magic glade until finally, eons hence, he turned to prince and Queen he wed, to sire a new age of wondrous beings to rule the then-world and thus begins the last age of magic. By:GenreJunkyAtLarge

Once upon a time there was a little girl who found a fuzzy orange and black caterpillar on the driveway of her home. She gently picked it up and placed it on a flowering bush in the back yard. Everyday, the little girl hunted the branches f the bush until she located the fluffy caterpillar, to ensure herself it was alive and well. One day, regardless of how hard she searched, she was unable to locate it. Because of that, she began to whimper, then cry as she searched more frantically. Until finally, her father came outside to see what had her so distraught. When she shared her story with him, he smiled and began a search of his own. A few moments later, he spied what he was searching for, and pointed it out to his daughter. He explained that it was in a cocoon where it would stay for the winter, emerging as a beautiful butterfly in Spring. They both smiled as he wiped the tears from her cherub-like cheeks.

Once upon a time there was a horse called Peg.
Everyday, Marian looked at him and thought how much she would like to ride him but that was against the rules. She changed his bedding, groomed him and refilled his manger with oats. When she could, she brought him a carrot though this was another thing that was against the rules.
One day, Marian came up from her underground cell and hurried to the hay store near the guardhouse. The sun had not yet risen over the high walls.
"Dia ruit, dial ruit."
Marian cocked her head.
"Oh, itps you."
A cheeky blackbird was sitting on the portcullis.
"You're brave today! We don't normally see you near the soldiers."
Where were the soldiers? She looked aroundbthe silent keep.
None of your business lass. The voice in her head wad her mothers. She shrugged, pulled one of the heavy bales out of the store and began dragging it over the icy flags.
Suddenly Peg's feet clattered noisily on the cobbles. He winied reared up and kicked the stabke door. She ran to the stable and clutched for the bridle.
"Woah, steady boy."
Holding the bridle firmly Marian and began to sing in her soft lilting voice. The sound soothed them both. When he was quiet she patted him gently and tied the leather cords by the stable door.
Something made her look up. A black stain smudges the sky.
Fear gripped her.
Because of that, she ran across the straw strewn court and up the narrow stone steps. Smoke! She could smell it before she was halfway up the tower. She tumbled out onto the parapet lungs burning and red faced.
The stamp of feet and clash of swords was louder than even her panting. They were coming up the road from the river. About thirty of the provost's men.
Her eyes rested on an untidy red stain near the crossing untidy red stain. That explained what had happened to the castle guard.
A grim hand clutched at her heart.
They would do what they had done in Avalon.
Pethaps the back way? Escape...
As she ran frantically she round the battlements she saw the notion was futile. Companies of grim men approached on all sides.
She ran back down into the court. Unhitched Peg and leapt on.
The horse tossed his head
"I know it's not allowed," said Marian soothingly.
The horse tossed his head.
"No, there's no time for a saddle."
Apparently satisfied Peg turned readying himself. Picking his line.
Marian kissed his mane and gave a gentle nudge with her feet.
Peg leapt forward, striding ever faster, his hooves raising sparks on the cobbles.
Until finally, spreading his wings Pegasus took to the air while below the soldiers cursed and clashed their spears and gnashed their teeth in impotent anger. By:RobMcGee
