• Anna Rose commented on the post, discuss 9 years ago

    “We will discuss it,” my mother said firmly.
    “But why can’t we just do it now?” I pleaded. “I mean, it’s not every day you get a pet dragon…”

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, overjoyed 9 years ago

    I was overjoyed to see her; I hadn’t in so long! Finally, the Fae have let her come to me, without anything bad happening.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, mist 9 years ago

    The mist was thick; I could barely see a figure through it. The figure approached me, and as it did, I felt a wave of warmth. I was no longer cold.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, rustling 9 years ago

    I heard a rustling in the bushes behind me.
    Sure, it might have just been a bird, but something told me otherwise…I crept toward it, in case I would have scared it off. What was it…? I hoped it wasn’t dangerous.

    Under the earth is where you need to go. Under the trees, the roots, the soil…you will find your destiny, Alanni. Your destiny lies beneath the roots.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, stood 9 years, 1 month ago

    I stood there as if I’d forgotten how to walk. “You–you gave it away?” That stone wasn’t ordinary. Yet she had thought it was. “Yeah…” She frowned. “Is that…bad?” “Bad? That’s an understatement. Now that it could be anywhere, it could fall into the wrong hands…” My mouth went dry. The stone’s magic was only […]

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, fallen 9 years, 1 month ago

    The Fallen had come to us. An ancient civilization, now here to tell us the truth, what had happened, why they no longer exist. Such a sadness came from them that I had a difficult time standing in their presence.
    The Fallen were here.
    It was time to listen.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, eternally 9 years, 1 month ago

    “I will be eternally yours.”
    That was what the bird said. It would be mine forever. It was my guardian, to be here with me forever. The bird and I would never part.
    I still have to name it…

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, delight 9 years, 1 month ago

    To my delight, it was blue! Blue, the color of peace, of freedom, of my own joy. The bird would be my friend. Uncaged, it would visit me only when it wanted to, when it needed to. Or when I needed it.
    Thank you, Mother.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, seconds 9 years, 1 month ago

    Only seconds passed. I was the first out there, and they were years behind me. Years. It was so unreal; normally it would have taken me that long to get from there to here, but with the Mechanism, it only took a few seconds. I hoped they could make it here okay…

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, probable 9 years, 1 month ago

    “It’s not probable…” he said. I said, “Well just try it…nothing TOO bad can happen, right?”
    He took a moment to think, and then decided to help me. Even though he thought he shouldn’t.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, sponge 9 years, 1 month ago

    I absorbed it all. It was amazing; I was like a sponge. It was kinda scary, the things that hat did to me…it’s like it made me smarter, more clever, sharper…I wanted to see what would happen if I didn’t take it off.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, flashback 9 years, 1 month ago

    It happened so long ago…yet he could remember it well; yes, he recalled the candles, the dark-colored room, and his sister–his sister…she was the one. She was always the one.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, created 9 years, 1 month ago

    I created it for you. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? How the stars shine in the sky, their yellow, indigo and violet; don’t you just love the trees, how they seem to touch the sky, break through the clouds? Look at all the creatures, here to stay with you. This world is for you; thrive in […]

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, none 9 years, 1 month ago

    There was nothing left. All her memories, visions of her former life, her family and her friends–gone. None was left. She opened her eyes and looked around. Why was she here? How did she get here? When she was asked how she was feeling, Ezri replied, ‘Who are you?’ It was then that the person’s […]

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, decorated 9 years, 1 month ago

    It was decorated, as if it were a holiday or something. I resented this; they would force me to do it, saying it would “help.” That I’d walk away with a good feeling.
    It did nothing for me.

  • Anna Rose commented on the post, near 9 years, 1 month ago

    It was near dusk when it began. The 20 of us gathered around the tree stump in the middle of the clearing. I didn’t want to do this, mind you, but I hadn’t a choice. I was chosen to do it, and this was what I had to do.
    We began.
