Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) When I Am a Success...

I will live in a house with a thatched roof (always wanted one). The house itself will be made of straw, twigs, vines, pebbles, and seeds of all kinds. (The first two pigs will be very jealous). It will be far into the woods, so no one can get here without a verbal or visual map from us.

As luck would have it, our house will have a path leading straight to it. As you come up to it, you will see the front door hiding in all that straw. We made it possible for you to see the door by putting a big WELCOME sign on the door, done in twigs. However, even though it has a path leading to it, we are very picky about who we let in our house.

The inside of the house is brown, and the outside is green. It's friendlier that way.

Who are "we"? We are Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Jackman. We just celebrated the big 20. We are the proud, sometimes exasperated, owners of one dog, two cats, and two children.

Our dog is a golden retriever named Rusty. One cat is a three-colored calico named Colorful, and the other cat is a silvery-black ragdoll named Silvery Black (Sil for short). You can see how original we are with names of animals.

Our boy is a black-haired, long-nosed kid named Pinocchio. Our girl is a fair-haired, long-haired, fair-skinned, blue-eyed beauty named Rapunzel. Did you notice that all five of them are named for what they are? We are still trying to figure out why all of the kids make fun of our babies.

We have a wonderful view from our house. There are plants, trees, flowers, lots of critters, and lots of birds. It is absolutely breathtaking.

Some of the critters around us are squirrels, chipmunks, possums, rabbits, deer, and now and then groundhogs and antelope. We feed them everyday.

We must have forty kinds of birds flying around here, including hummingbirds. We feed them far away from where we feed the critters, so it all goes to the birds.

We have a carport of sorts. Both cars are parked in a nice mossy area with the leaves and branches from the shade trees protecting our cars from the wind and elements.

Hugh has a silver BMW beamer that he and I toodle around in. The heavy-duty, practical, family car is mine. It is a bright red Toyota Camry.

We tried home-schooling, but it didn't work, so we put Pinocchio and Rapunzel in parochial school. We figured they would learn better morals, views, and values than they would in private schools. Apparently, we were wrong.

We are a very close-knit family. We do things together a lot. We have a Bible study every night. We have devotions every morning. We go to rallies and games together. We play word games together. In short, we have a great family ethic.

Name: The Heart of a Wolf (I stole it from another one of my stories. I would love it if you read it!)

Author: Hima

I pinched myself, not sure if I was dreaming, or if I was hallucinating from a hard hit on the head. There was more of a chance that I was hit on the head.

I was standing in front of a pack of growling, snarling, glaring wolves. Wolves of all colors, black, grey, white, and mixed, stared at me menacingly. The alpha male cocked his head and my ears were ringing with the mournful howls of thousands of wolves.

Adrenaline pumped through my veins, which were frozen just like the rest of my body. I tried to lift my foot up but found that I couldn't; it was like it was glued to the ground with super-glue.

The powerful wind whistled around me, adding to the sharp pain running through my lungs as I strained to breathe through the powerful winds.

The wind was so powerful that it couldn't have been made by the Earth's forces. At that moment pain started to seep through me, pain like none before. It wasn't physical, it was more of a feeling that something horrible was going to happen and I could do nothing about it; it was emotional.

Once again I tried to move, greeted again by sharp stabbing in my chest and legs. Of course, I would have never thought this would have happened. How I got myself into this mess I didn't know.

It had started as a normal day.

I know, it's weird. But I like it. :D

Maryam. | 214 comments Mod
It is not weird, It is very good!I will get around reading your story!!Maybe tomorrow!!Lol

message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Maryam. | 214 comments Mod

message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Name; Realm(Idk)

Grace sat in the branches of an old oak, looking up at the stars. She always did this on nights with full moons, yet she didn’t know why. She whispered the names of the stars and constellations as she went “North star…..Sirius…..Draco.”

That was as far as she got.

There was a huge bang and Grace whipped around, almost falling off the branch. She hit her arm on the trunk. “Ow.” She muttered. Grace leapt off the tree and raced back to her house. She stopped, horrified at the sight that met her eyes.

Her front door was ripped out from the brickwork, thrown aside in the daisies that were always carefully tended by her mother. The windows were shattered, glass sprinkled around her front lawn. As Grace watched, the house exploded into a fireball, the flames punching into the sky. Grace’s eyes started to water. She just stood thee, frozen by shock, as the fire spread; making it’s way towards Grace.

“Come on!” Something grabbed Grace’s arm and pulled her towards the forest. Grace was wrenched out of her trance and ran towards the safety of the trees. If I can just reach the trees, I’ll be safe. Grace thought desperately. She didn’t know how she knew this but she was going on a hunch. And she was always the type that went on a hunch. She was just about to reach the shadow of the first tree when something hideous and deformed burst out of the shadows. Grace screamed and lashed out in a round-house kick. Her foot connected with the demon with a sq-kaaaa! sound and threw it into a tree. Grace winced as she got her first clear look at it.

It was a nightmare creature. Its head was almost a wolf’s head, except it mauled and the snout was made out of bone, with glistening flesh clinging to it. The neck was almost a foot long, connecting to a snake like body. The tail was a stump and the legs were short and muscular, with long claws jutting out of the end. Grace bent over and vomited. The stranger girl grabbed Grace a hauled her away. Grace didn’t mind. She blacked out.

The next time she woke up, Grace was staring at the blue sky. She bolted up, wincing as she did. The girl that saved her life was next to her, cooking something over a fire. Her hair was a fiery-red and her eyes were blue. She was really quite beautiful, now that Grace saw her properly.

“Hello.” The girl said quietly. “My name is Alice. Do you remember anything from last night?”

It took Grace a while. “Fire and demons. Oh my.” She said
