Fallen
He sat, sick and breathing harshly, upon the corpse of a narrow tree. The bark was scratchy and unappealing to his tender flesh, but there was nothing else but dirt and more trees. For the first time in his life, he was shivering like a child, both terrified and cold. He brushed his golden locks from his sculpted and handsome face, peering at the darkness around him. Soon enough, he, too, would be apart of it, blending in a well as any vampire or demon. The sky was bathed in red and orange and looked as though it were on fire.
They must be disappointed. His appearance was transforming much too quickly. He touched his hair and found that his blonde curls had become straight and black, fine and greasy to the touch. He began to mumble a prayer and it burned his throat and lips, dying by the time it reached his mouth. Acid tears streaked down his face, burning his paling, translucent skin. The bones in his face became sharper and more defined beneath his papery flesh.
The extra limbs exten

More Than Friendship
Ama sighed faintly as Frankie bounded into her room, twirling like a ballerina. “Hey, Amy,” she grinned widely, sashaying her hips as she swirled the pleated, plaid skirt around her thighs. Ama nodded brusquely in the younger girl’s general direction, then laid her head in her arms, shifting to lie upon her stomach. Frankie frowned at her aloof companion, unbuttoning her white school uniform shirt. “What’s wrong, Amy? Did Hiro make another pass?” Silently, she seethed at that—the russet native was staying available until Frankie was old enough to take her for herself.
The Native-American kicked her legs as she watched the younger undress, shaking her head. There really wasn’t anything she wanted to say, anyway. Better to stay quiet than talk about nothing significant—something her protégée had yet to appreciate. Ama looked away while Frankie kicked away her shoes and socks, then danced from her skirt. “You know, I think Jonny

How do you appeal to a zebra?
While Alex desperately appealed to the herd of zebras, Marty turned his back, swishing his tail angrily. As if on cue, the rest of the herd mimicked him, whether they realized it or not, that made Marty even more irate. However, he was mentally exhausted and he kept his mouth shut as the herd shouted his name, “Which one of us is Marty? Is Marty here?” At first, he’d considered joining them and dismissed the thought as soon as it’d appeared. There was a chance his New Yorker twang would tip his ex-best friend off, and that wouldn’t do. The zebras all had the same voice and looks, but not the same thoughts or ways of expression, a minor comfort in a wave of malcontent.
If Alex really was sorry, then he could tell Marty out from the hides of the others. It was childish, yes, but he had some right; he was hurt. Marty set his jaw, unwilling to speak as Alex continued. He didn’t listen to about half of it. He concentrated on not galloping away, like he did with

Sleepy
“Nnnmmm…” Rusty squirmed in his bed of hay, trying vainly to close his eyes and just sleep. Yet, everywhere he looked, there were demons and monsters and he only became even more restless with the darkness that had swallowed him a few hours before. Soon, Rusty made to his hands and knees, his tentacles instinctively wrapping protectively around his pudgy waist and thighs. “A-Auntie Lil…?” he whispered hesitantly, afraid of what might come if he awakened his sleeping relative.
A groand from across the room, then a voice run rampant by smoke and tar and sleep. “Wot es et, Rusteh, boyh?”
“Um…Ah-” he paused and crawled to her side, placing a hand on her supple hip innocently. “Ah’m scared.” A tentacle wrapped around his chest, as though hugging all the fear from him, though it failed to work.
A deep, almost angry sigh. “Uf wot, deer?”
“Woll…it’s…dark…”
“Dark ev’reh night,

The beginning of the workday was always the hardest time of day for Early. Mostly because he was always at least two to three hours late – if not a complete week – and he usually got quite the snippy response from Dan Halen, something like, “OH! and he shows up today! Congratulations!” or “Go back to your mud-hole, squidman, I have no need of your services today.” Early, of course, didn’t much care for Dan’s kind of humor at all…considering that the emancipated hick was the epitome of “gullible idiot.”
Yet, even though he couldn’t quite make it on time, exactly – “Culd yew use tha wurd ‘ezactleh’ in ah sayntance, playse?” – he always showed up at some point or another…drunk and stupid, but at least he showed up, and that was all Dan could really hope for or count on.

Dan Halen cracked his neck with a dignified grunt and glared across the mound of paperwork he was left with courtesy of Early Cuyler, the CEO of Dan Halen Indusries.
“Ah geeve yew da permishun tah syon da dayum thangs. Ah’ve gawt thangs tah see and people tah dew, WOO!”
As though Dan hadn’t things to see and people to do…or, things to do and people to see. Dan wasn’t a man-whore like Early. The tycoon sighed and picked up his pen, and began to sign away as he had been doing for the last 10 odd hours.

Dear Brianna :iconthedeckzena::

I don't really know how to tell you this, but our affair is over. I think I realized it when I quoted Santa in your camping car and I saw you carve your initials into Bill Clinton. I'm sure you're man enough to understand that I did a sex change. I'm returning your ring to you, but I'll keep your left ear as a memory. You should also know that I never liked Oprah Winfrey imitations.

Greetings to your freaky family,
Lindsey :iconmy-tempest:
