    Akhen-Son

    ‘Beware the Evenglow.’ A father advised, closing the curtain on the window. The dim world shutoff from him, all Thomas Akhen-Sayer could see was the dying candlelight in his parents’ small shack.

    The mission of Uriel

    The mission of Uriel

    Once upon a time, there lived an angel from the heavens above, his name, Uriel, a new soul to the above, thriving in peace and love. His beloved family and friends down on earth had missed him so much, too much to be exact, that his soul had been pulled back down onto earth due to the mass amount of people who were offering there own souls to the devil just to bring the angel, Uriel back down to earth. The love and obsession over Uriel was too much that it began wars and jealousy over the opinions of what Uriel had liked more during his past life before his passing. In the situation that had presented itself to Uriel, had now became his mission to fix, with the will of his father and the faith in himself as well, Uriel knew that he himself had a lot to do and he knew that it wouldn’t be easy because the choices he makes will change the balance in good and evil. Not only in the world around him but inside the wills and choices of his loved ones.

    Somewhere Enchanted

    Somewhere Enchanted

    ‘Right, I’m off’, Grettos whispered in her ear. She rolled, adopting an even more uncomfortable-looking sleeping position. He got up gently. It didn’t take much time for him to find his shoes, clothes and gear. He knew his way around the house even during the darkest hours, and the glow from his rucksack, which was close to his bedside, helped light things up a little. Of course, the glow could not be seen in the daylight hours. It was still light when they usually went to bed so the glow would not have been noticed by his partner.

    Samurai Androids: Firmware Upgrade

    Samurai Androids: Firmware Upgrade

    The old suburb was quiet as the sun set; the sky a watercolor palette of oranges and reds bleeding together. The area had once been a full of life, but now only the mournful houses and rusting cars were witness to the slow decay. And they watched wordlessly, their silence a pouting condemnation of the afterlife to which they had been doomed.

    The Unspoken Language

    The Unspoken Language

    The days bound in ash and sweat, braced with fear and revulsion. I feel the pressure braided, like rope and knots, caught in my throat. Fell creatures of night, men, and the shudder of their touch on my skin has become poison. Sjana paced the landscape outside of her bedroom window, scanning every inch with her sage colored eyes. In her lap, a notebook, on which a white fountain pen scribbled unconsciously. She wouldn’t let herself think, nor would she listen to the pounding in her mind. The memories she had left behind, locked far away.

    Are Mermaids Real

    Are Mermaids Real

    Are mermaids real? Some people say no others say yes, this article will show some evidence that they might actually be out there. Our government has said they are not out there and not real, they have gone on record many times stating that mermaids are not real. But there are many videos of what seems to be mermaids; whether or not they are credible is not certain, but they are out there. There have been many sightings and other evidence as well, some people have recovered what seems to be spears stuck in the fish caught in the open ocean. Having no idea how they got there. Although this evidence exists, our government and N.O.A.A for whatever reason still denies that there may be mermaids out there. Though a lot of the evidence is inconclusive, such as the cell phone footage from the two boys who showed up on one of the whale beachings and found something that did not look like a whale but a body (is what the boys first stated) the government got involved they changed their stories. Other phone footage has come to the surface after the airing of Mermaids: The Body Found a show that was aired on Animal Planet back in 2013. Another show aired a few months after that which was called Mermaids: The New Evidence which was more of a talk show. This show did ask the hard questions and most of those questions were answered with video footage and scientific research such as DNA test done on a body recovered from the belly of a shark. The body, though only 30% of it, was some very important evidence. This and also sound recording of an unknown species of marine animal is what a N.O.A.A worker discovered. It was not long after this that the African government got involved confiscating the body and most of the evidence, the only thing that was given to the N.O.A.A worker, was the DNA test because it came back as human. After this the N.O.A.A worker left N.O.A.A and is pursuing a different job but is still working with marine animals. Like I said earlier in the article, new evidence has come to the surface. More videos have surfaced after the airing of Mermaids: The Body Found. One in particular depicts a small school of fish swimming past an oil rig one gets impaled by what seems to be a spear. Though the creature that grabs the fish is not fully seen because it swims past too fast to see, there are no marine animals that use spears to hunt and catch their food. Another video depicts what seems to be a mermaid or merman sunbathing on a rock while two men are looking down into the ocean to see it. One of the men records the encounter on their cell phone. This video has been on Youtube for 6 years and has been viewed 56 thousand times. The video filmed by the two boys has been on Youtube for 7 years and has been viewed 853 thousand times and the video of the fish being speared has been on Youtube for 6 years and has been viewed 1.7 million times. These videos depict the same creature it seems like but many people either do not see it or refuse to believe that they exist. These creatures if they do exist have become amazing at hiding and staying in the shadows, where they cannot be found and bothered. Now the real question that we should be asking ourselves is do we believe the evidence that has been brought to the light, and if not then what would it take to make us believe?
