Night of Wonder
The vigorous breeze reassured the that the fragile boats that had been crafted would be carried west to fulfill their intention. Alateeyeh were strewn around the river each offering their own variations of traditional spirited tunes. Everyone was in a costume of some form or another, whether a handcrafted mask, zealous face paint, or unrecognizable fashions. Many were carrying a pumpkin that has been delicately carved into its ominous appearance, each unique vessel holding a light of protection. While most were generally excited about tonight, everyone also aware of the dangers of the night. Not all of spirits returning would be there for a night of friendly reunion and feast.
The World I Love Doesn’t Exist
That’s the thing about this city, it is not the same city. The name is the same, many of the city and street signs remain unchanged, familiar buildings still stand, but it is not Huntington Beach. At least not the one that I knew. It was back in 2001 that I was first fortunate enough to land in that magnificent beachfront city. The sun glimmering off the buildings, peoples smiles and vivacity adding to the liveliness, the fresh ocean breeze, with no shortage of ma and pa shops to explore.
Pyramid of Immortalis
Dust arose as a stately scorpion dropped down onto the decaying floor from a crevice above. Battling fatigue, I struggled to my feet, once again surveying my surroundings. Inspecting for any clues or symbols I may have missed my first hundred times scrutinizing the dimly lit chamber.
Kevin carried out a small box covered in grease and food splatters, his belongings clinking inside. It wasn’t the first time the chef had been fired and he was quite sure it wouldn’t be the last. He had been blamed for not making food costs the last two months, although it was the front of the house who always came back and gorged themselves whenever they pleased. If he protested, he was reprimanded for being unwelcoming and creating a hostile work environment. It seemed there was just no winning for him.
What You May Not Know About Auto Insurance
A Rental Car Isn’t a Given Many people tend to assume after an accident they can call their auto insurance company and be provided a rental while repairs are being done, or while they are looking for a new vehicle in the case of a total loss, but much of the time that is not true. It doesn’t matter if you believed you signed up for “full coverage,” have collision, comprehensive, and all the works; if you did not specifically sign up for rental coverage, then you will not be getting a rental. Also remember that even if you do have rental coverage, it only applies in the event of an accident, weather event, theft, fire, or vandalism, not just because you’ll be taking the vehicle to the shop because it broke down, needs some work, etc. There are also several circumstances where you will have to wait to receive a rental vehicle; most companies will not set up rentals until the day the repairs commence, and in many circumstances the claims adjustor will have to review the file to give the okay for a rental, which usually takes between several days or weeks to discern.

Le Démon et L'Hypnotiseur
Cina somberly tidied up her empty shop on that peculiar windswept day. A hypnotist with an attached apothecary wasn’t exactly in demand in the year 2009. People just weren’t interested in the mystical arts anymore; technology and science had become their new forte. No longer being a spring chicken, she was dismayed at the thought of turning fifty the subsequent week. Vitality and a youthful appearance never hurt in gaining customers. She sighed as she disposed of a jar of herbs that had been sitting on the shelf so long that they no longer emitted any scent, and were certain to no longer contain any beneficial properties. If business kept going like this, she would be forced to close her doors before long.
A Most Glorious Friday the 13th
Rain poured down as Gloria ran down the sidewalk, her hefty backpack bouncing as she willed herself forward. It was only her first week back at school, she couldn’t dare show up late. The breeze hastened, a strange charge filled the air, goosebumps rolling down her arms. Sprinting the last mile, she finally slid into the classroom just as the bell echoed announcing the start of class.
The Jack-o’-lantern Burns Bright at the Berlot’s
Cobwebs and strings of skeleton lights hung overhead the frivolous partygoers. Jean sat nonchalantly in a far-off pool chair, distancing herself from the rambunctious crowd who seemed oblivious to the holiday they were celebrating. She wasn’t sure why she came to these things anymore. Every party ended up the same. Her bored out of her mind, with no interest in mingling with any of the buffoons there. That was college she supposed. Endless parties with little value, that everyone just had to attend.

9 of the Greatest Sega Genesis Games
Risky Woods This side-scrolling platformer released in 1992 was published by Electronic Arts, developed by Zeus software, and produced by Dinamic Software. The gameplay is exciting and fast paced, where you play as the adventurer Rohan. Your mission will be to travel through danger filled woods, menacing monsters, and daunting obstacles in order to free the monks of the lost lands who have been turned to stone. The default weapon in the game is a dagger but you will be able to find a variety of different ones throughout the levels. The gameplay can get quite difficult, and the levels are timed so you do have to circumvent the obstacles and complete the puzzles while under pressure from the clock.
