Chapter 2: Darcie
Luck was anywhere but at our side as Obsidian and Sacre failed to find a suitable living space. Now, we had only two options: stay in this city under a Human Glamour, or travel to a neighboring city. Why we felt the need to stay nearby failed to show itself... For now, at least. All we knew was that we had to stay. A final check to ensure that we had all of our supplies and Glamours in order was mandatory before we left, of course. But as our fate would have it, Sacre couldn't transform.
As I'm sure anyone reading this (assuming you're around your mid-20's and older) would know, being an adult is incredibly rough. It looked fun when we were kids, but really, it's just more stress and hassle and I don't know about y'all... But I've been finding myself doing more and more things that I really don't want to do just to get by in my life. When did being an adult go from being fun to being stressfully depressing? Why can't anything as an adult be as easy as most of our parents made it look? Well, I might not have all the answers to those questions... Ok, I don't really have an answer at all for those. But here's what I do have: Hope. And in a world where having Hope is the most useful thing you can have, I'm here to tell you how to keep that spark alive.
Alright, I need to add a quick little note before I actually share my thoughts on this one: I was heavily advised to NOT watch the full series and was given a specific stopping point. After learning how the show ends... I highly recommend any new watchers stop at episode 15 (where I personally think it should've ended), though you COULD stop at episode 20/21 if you're brave enough.
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out this story. I would like to make a quick note that the first few chapters were written when I was young and this story is currently under revisions. I might miss a few areas where revision work is critical, and for that, I want to pre-emptively apologize. I don't want to just drop this story, though... So I'm posting what I have here while I see if I think it's worth all the much needed revision work. So far, I only have 3 chapters... But depending on how you all respond to them, I'll either continue the revision work or re-write it entirely. Thank you again for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my little tale of 5 Dragons trying to save their world! Or rather, the start of it...!
What I'm about to share may very well change your life. I know it certainly changed mine... And it all came from a Bachelorette party. I will detail the recipe for you to try at home yourself, as well as the best wine to pair with it. As a little bonus, I'll also include one of my favorite desserts and the wine pairing for that! So without further ado... Allow me to begin detailing how one can make the best "spasagna" (spaghetti in lasagna format):
I recently went through a little stint where nothing I did made me feel "sexy" in the most feminine sense of the word. After being on a major weight loss journey, I gave in to all the negative thoughts I had about my body and spiraled. Night after night, I'd ask my fiancé if I was "sexy enough" for him. How could I be "sexy enough" for him? And every time I'd ask, he'd give me the same little roundabout answer: "You're pretty, and that's enough for me."
