(Talla encounters an old love interest)
Adrenaline pumped, as I ran. Sirens wailed, getting closer? How did he find me? No idea, all I know, he's not alone. None of the Nohrians have the skill to track me down. he had help? who gave it to him?
Wind whipped my ponytail as I ran through the woods. My shoes delved deep into the mud, caking them. I had no time! How!? Tears rushed, seeing black droplets. Why me? I stopped at the edge of a local lake. My Xeylan face reflected up the broken surface. I sighed, as I plunged deep into the water. The surface shattered like ice, I swam 'till I blacked out. Somehow I was in his arms. The world suddenly felt so right, yet so wrong. I jumped, turning to face him. It all took so long to forget!
"How?" My voice shook. Yet, my undertone was threatening.
"I followed you, it was easy. Twisting your commander's arm and she sang like a bird..." His buttery voice rang.
Slowly everything clicked, he was the one who kept me running. Always making me believe my life was in danger. In ways, he was my enemy-my friend and worst of all-my ex-fiance! He reached out his hand, touching my frail face. Shivers of vulnerability ran through my spine. Yet, it also felt of pure desire.
My eyes closed before my real senses clicked in. My crystal eyes gave looks as hard as diamonds. "NO!" My lips set a frown, as he kept stroking my face. I melted like putty. His cat like emerald eyes dug into my soul, tearing my fragile heart.
"You will love me!" His eyes slanted as he teeth grew into sharp ivory fangs.
He was truly becoming disgusting, yet hypnotizing. Our eyes hooked, we crouched ready to strike. He wasn't the only one with new tricks. I sped, reaching out-slamming my fist into his back. He screeched, contorting with pain. I returned grinning evilly. My instincts and my Union Military Training told me I was ready for this moment. Screams were like torture, mixed with glee. Why? Was he ready too? I did love him once. Our fury finally ended, repeated blows back and forth.
Suddenly, I felt something in my heart. This feeling wasn't love, hate, nor fear-but a knife. I now saw myself floating. A dress rested upon me, my hair spilled a crossed a velvet pillow. While my security office pendent was wrapped around my pale wrist. I watched my body.
I loved him from afar. I smiled too...

(Teleya uses the a new simulator aboard a Krill ship)
-Inside simulator: Environment 1140: Cliff side-
Her feet hurt as she walked across the lake's rocky shore. She willingly ignored it, along with the evening's soft chill. This wasn't the first time she'd been here. She had grown to the feelings by now. The water was her escape, her safe place. She'd been coming here for the past few months since her incident with Ed and the Shaktals. Especially when she felt threatened or scared. She wasn't planning on stopping anytime soon, no matter how cold it got.
She made her way up a little nature covered cliff. A spot where a landslide broke several years ago. The land that withstood was strong, she would use it as a diving spot. With a strong running start, she jumped while screaming. A small amount of water flew into her mouth, as she went under. She sank for a split second, as she propelled to the surface. She spat and coughed the dirty-stinky tasting lake water. Once she felt ok, she floated upon her back like Ed taught her. Her breath was in rhythm with the small waves.
As she stared upon the cold stars, she finally felt at home...
Note: I messed up on the first 2 stories. I forgot the titles. So Talla's story is called Exhale. While Teleya's story is Missing Way. I'm sorry, I'll have to put this thread in 2 parts since I'm "clogging up" the thread. Last story before part 2, the admin said so. Sorry Orville fans, I'm an idiot.
(L.T. Dann writes a very short story of a Earth Leaf)
I'm the last leaves of Fall, clinging to the dying branches of an Oak tree. I'm clinging on with no survival, I know winter will soon follow and take over. I have no choice but to fall. Yet, just to be stepped on, crunched into little bits of nothingness.
I am only compost in the ground. Soon enough, I will be buried under bone crushing snow and ice for many months. I will be bitter like the January wind. I will be nothing, until spring begins.
I will only wait...
