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.

Colloquy of the Moon
Reyna gazed at the moon yearningly as if attempting to communicate with it from the backseat of the dingy taxi she was forced to take that drizzling morning. Another inclement day in that putrefying city. It was still dark out, assisting in shrouding the squalidness, but everyone knew it was there. Men hiding in the shadows willing to maim you for a buck, soiled tents lining every sidewalk with human feces and used needles in-between.

Mizuwari and A Deck of Cards
Anicka kept her heavily made-up eyes ahead as she pushed through the pedestrian ridden streets of the Roppogni district. Although water proof and more expensive than a couple fancy dinners, the heavy rains and oppressive humidity of Tokyo still forced streaks of the mascara and eyeliner underneath her eyes. Drops of water fell from the overcast sky providing a slight cooling sensation her back. She put her hand on the butterfly knife she had recently purchased, the heavily shaded alleys and dizzying neon lights not enticing her to let her guard down.
