Warm, bright fires popped and crackled, inviting everyone near. It seemed like every ten feet, a new fire was lit. All around the camp, humans and nagas sat together, sharing the food that was not only brought, but also hunted. The tense air had vanished when the two races had come back with enough food for everyone. Now they spoke and laughed, sitting together around the fires. There were still some solitary groups around the borders, unwilling to come close. But that was anticipated.
Evan couldn’t help but feel a bit of pride as he looked over the camp. This was the first record of humans and nagas sitting beside each other. He took a moment more to observe, shivering. There was still much to do and he had been denying himself the luxury of warmth. He rubbed his arm, walking into the dark, near the horses.
He felt like he had been trying to hold a mountain. His legs were hardly holding him. his exhaustion was nearly drowning him. it was hard to see st

Evan watched as his unconscious father was dragged away and tied up to the post with the horses. This all still seemed like a dream. He turned around, finally having a moment to speak to Joel. “what are you doing here?” he asked, walking up to the other man.
“a few days after you had left, your father had returned in search of you. He demanded that I join his army, and though I have a lot of command- even I cant refuse a direct order from a king. Plus I knew there was little chance you would be home anytime soon. I figured perhaps I would get a chance to see you on the road, though even I didn’t predict this.”
Evan had to laugh. He pulled his helmet off, looking around. The nagas were mostly still a good distance away, but just their presence was enough to make the humans uncomfortable. Evan motioned to Joel, walking away. “Come, there are others I would like you to meet.”
Joel followed, standing just as tall as Evan.

It was obvious that the open area was manmade. All of the trees had been cut down, making enough room for many men. There were hundreds of tents, and even more rolls on the ground because there could never be enough room for everyone. Golden banners with black wolf heads hung everywhere. Evan had almost forgot what they had looked like. The noises got louder and louder as Evan approached. His heart was in his throat as he saw the humans. Again he had to find humor at how uncomfortable he was stepping into a human camp.
As he neared a group of men, he was finally spotted. All of their laughter silenced as they looked at him with confused eyes. The men were not wearing armor, nor did they have swords at their sides.
“Where is Edward?” he demanded.
One of the men stood up, narrowing his eyes. “And just who are you?” the man questioned.
“and what are you wearing?” another laughed.
Evan held his head high, glaring at the standin

Rain poured down from the sky in buckets. The wind howled and tore around Evan, making him deaf to any other sound. He grabbed his sword, pulling it out of the sheath. The trees groaned as the wind tore at them, trying to pull them to the ground. A flash of lightning struck across the sky, lighting up the area. A man stood across from Evan. With bright eyes and a wicked smile, he came storming confidently down.
Evan shuddered, opening his eyes. He was sitting on a bench in the palace, watching the sun slowly peak over the horizon. The window was made with colored glass, depicting some picture that Evan was sure had some meaning. He looked back down at his hand. He played with the purple gem, listening to the light clinking of the chain as he moved the stone around his fingers. A dark spot caught his eye and he turned his hand, looking at the tattoo on the back of it.
He had been up for hours. He had been unable to sleep after that dream. Shale had come early

The empty halls clicked with the echo of Evans boots as he walked. The palace seemed eerily vacant. Evan had slept as long as he could, but he was restless. It was early in the morning. The sun still had not risen yet. The castle seemed peaceful during this time. Perhaps this is what his father spoke of. The calm before the storm.
In Evans had was a hot cup of the terrible tea. He had made it just after he had drank Shales terrible potions. One disgusting taste after another. But they were all working. Today he hurt less. He stood straighter. He could actually walk without having to take breaks. He was truly feeling better. But how much better could he be by tomorrow? He took a large swallow of the boiling tea. He was just going to have to find out.
Evan slowed his walk as he started to head past the Kings memorial room. He stopped at the door and opened it, glancing inside. The room light up from the candles in the hall. Evan walked into the dark room, headi

Evan sat on the cold floor of the kings memorial room, a bottle of wine in his hand. He had found it in the kitchen, needing something to calm himself. The wine didn’t just numb the physical pain, it also helped with the stress he was feeling. He took another sip, propping his arm up on his knee. In the center of the room Kadeem was glaring at him with unimpressed eyes. Xeon was right. That portrait didn’t seem to fit the naga. But at least it wasn’t covered in blood. It was a lot easier to look at but it still made him feel guilty.
“this wasn’t my fault,” he muttered to the picture. “stop blaming me.”
The portrait remained silent. the unaproving eyes still looked directly at Evan. Evan sighed and took another sip of the wine, wishing he had something stronger. “what do you want me to say? I cant promise you anything. I probably am going to die as well. Then we will both be stuck.”
Again, the portrai

“you left me there.”
Evan groaned, sitting up. his head was pounding and the rest of his body was pulsing with a sore pain. He rubbed his eyes, reaching for a glass near by. He jumped in shock when he finally noticed the body standing next to him. “Kadeem?” he gasped.
Kadeem seemed hardly able to support himself. He had his clawed hand over the wound in his side, like he usually did. His yellow eyes burned into Evan, almost bringing pain. He drew a wheezy breath. “you left me.”
Evan sat up straighter, shaking his head. “no, Xeon rescued me. I didn’t leave you.”
“you left me!” he yelled. “you were right there. You were right under me. You. Were. Right. There!”
“They couldn’t waste anymore time, Kadeem,” Evan tried to explain, realizing the naga was speaking of his body. “they had to get out of there.”
“I was not a waste of time!” Kadeem yelle

The dark room should have been comforting to Evan, but the quiet only made his thoughts that much louder. He had finally gotten a chance to excuse himself, unable to stay standing any longer. He had hardly made it to his bed, collapsing onto it and unable to rise again. All he wanted to do in the world was sleep, but after what he had just sat through, he couldn’t even close his eyes.
Fear made him cold. but it was not like the cold outside. This was very different. This was a cold that was inside his bones, pulsing through his veins like a poison. Xeons last few words still rang in his ears like the echoes of a loud bell.
Evan groaned loudly, pushing himself up. it took a moment of struggling but finally he was sitting against the headboard of his bed. He weakly rubbed his eyes with his good hand, nearly shaking now. Tomorrow night Xeon would once again address the council, and Evan would again be at his side. But what would they say to the nagas plan?

Xeon was quiet as he and Evan headed back to the prison. It made Evan nervous when the naga was this silent. it made him feel like he had done something wrong. It made him anxious. It didn’t help that he was weaker than a baby bird right now. When Xeon had beckoned him to follow, Evan had taken longer than he had hoped to gather the strength required to get out of his seat. He was holding himself tall for Xeon, but all he wanted to do in the world was sleep.
Each step was like trying to move a rusty hinge. His legs seemed to hesitate, grind and squeak every time he lifted them to walk. But even through his exhaustion Evan was putting on a strong mask. Xeon never once addressed it.
When they finally had reached the cells, they were met by a very impatient Vasson. He ushered them inside, getting the guards to hold their positions by the door once again. “lets get this over with,” he muttered. “this has carried on far too long.”

Xeon rubbed his face. His shoulders were slumped, his eyes were dull. He kept his hand on his face, giving a deep sigh. “do you believe he has any reliable information?”
Evan shifted from foot to foot, feeling like a child caught doing something wrong. “I believe that its worth listening to.”
“The human knows he is going to die soon,” Vasson hissed. “he is saying anything he can to extend his time. Don’t fall for this tales.”
“but what if he’s not?” Evan demanded. “what if he actually knows something important?!”
Xeon uncovered his face, his eyes now dull with exhaustion. He looked at Evan. “what do you suspect the information is about?”
“I don’t know,” Evan shrugged.
“your best guess?” he pressed.
Evan bit his lip, leaning against the wall. He rubbed the bandage on his arm. “maybe my father is looking for me. maybe they are near

Vasson lead Evan down the hall, moving at a fast pace. Evan struggled to keep up, nearly tripping over his own feet. Finally he was forced to catch himself on a wall. “Vasson,” he called. “wait.”
The naga turned to him, looking him over. He slithered back to Evans side. “should I call a doctor?”
Evan shook his head, pushing the hair from his eyes. “just give me a moment,” he insisted.
“what's wrong?”
Evan shook his head, feeling a bit of shame. “I’m just really weak.”
Vasson didn’t snap an answer back. He didn’t have a mocking smile. Instead he pressed against the wall next to Evan, crossing his arms once more. A very low sigh escaped from the nagas nose. Evan tried to copy his stance, still struggling to stay standing. The two of them fell into uncomfortable silence. Finally Evan looked at the floor, shifting feet. “I feel like a child,” Evan admitted quietl

Evan limped slowly down the hall, resting for a moment against the wall. His legs were still weak and he was putting on a good mask for Xeon, but there were moments when he was glad to be alone. It was hard work to keep up this lie. All he wanted to do was go back to bed and sleep, but there were things he had to attend.
After a moment of rest, he pushed himself from the wall and continued walking down the hall. It had not taken long before he could hear voices. He could tell they were angry. He stopped a small distance away, listening.
“-enough of a risk,” one voice snapped. “let us end all of this. We have already endangered everything we have worked to protect for your pet. Let’s not risk anymore.”
“you would do well to watch your tongue Vale,” Xeons voice warned loudly. “I have allowed you in this room, and I can send you away just as quickly.”
“Xeon-“
“he told you to shut it,” Vassons voice stopped him.

“Just for a moment-“
“no. leave.”
“Xeon, we just need to know-“
“I said leave.”
There was a harsh sigh, followed by a door closing. Evan shifted, now awake from the noise. His whole body was stiff with pain. It would be another day of this. Another day of pain. Another day of…
Something wasn’t right.
Evan tried to open his eyes, but just couldn’t yet. He was warm, comfortable. It felt as though he was laying on a cloud, or a pile of feathers. How could anything feel so soft? How could he had forgotten what it felt like to be warm?
Evan struggled a bit more, finally getting control and opening his eyes. It took him a moment to focus and he still couldn’t move. The room was dark, but comfortable. He couldn’t tell where he was. where did Howard put him now?
A memory flashed through his head. Xeon.
Evan sat up, gasping with pain from the action. He gripped his arm, finding it bound. In

Evan was quivering, tears running down his face. He looked at the man in front of him, his eyes pleading. His left arm was tied to a wall in front of him, slipped through the spool of a metal wheel. The man had a malicious smile as he gripped a chain above his head. when the chain was pulled, the wheel would spin. The speed of the spin was determined by the weight on the chain.
The man holding the chain was not a light man.
“what do you think now?” the man mused. “are you ready to talk yet?”
“Please no,” Evan begged. “please don’t do it.” He tried to weakly pull at his shackle, but it held him in place.
“all you have to do is complete this little sentence. Are you ready? The nagas are located…?”
Evan sobbed, closing his eyes and turning his head.
“one more time. The nagas are located…?”
Again, Evan didn’t answer. He whined, shaking his head. the man sighed, grippin

“so, lets try this again,” a calm voice cooed. “Where are the nagas hiding away?”
Evan quivered as he picked up his head. his arms were tied above him, making his shoulders feel as though they were going to pop. He was covered in lumps and bruises. The man in front of him held a long whip, the end of it having bits of metal. Evan looked into the man’s eyes, taking a long breath. “Piss off,” he answered.
The man pulled his arm back, snapping the whip onto Evans chest. Evan cried out, unable to pull away. The bits of metal on the ends of the whip left cuts and bruises as it slapped onto his skin. “This would be easier if you just answered,” the man reminded him. “You could save a lot of lives, including your own, if you just told us what we want to know.”
Evan didn’t answer. The man sighed, raising his arm and again snapping the whip across Evans torso. Evan limply yelled, unable to turn aw

It had taken over an hour to ride to the castle. Evan was now nauseous with fear, but he didn’t show it. If there was one thing he had learned from his father, it was how to hide emotions. He sat tall on the horse, awkwardly having to hang on with his legs because his hands were still tied. When the horses started to slow, the capped man rode up next to him. “and there is the destination,” he pointed in the distance. Evan squinted, able to just see the grey walls of the kingdom. He felt his mouth go dry.
It really was far too late to turn back.
The horses were eagerly trotting down the cobblestone path. They must have been just as sick of the cold as Evan was. as they approached the city, the massive gates were lowered and several other men came out to meet them. They roughly ripped Evan off of his horse, cutting his binds and instead putting heavy shackles on  his wrists and ankles. Evan kept his eyes forward as they stated the march

So, I get an F. I failed this assignment.

There is so much going on right now, and with the loss of my account in my favorite website, I just have no motivation.

It doesnt help that I dont have a single blank sheet of paper left to draw on. guess whos getting a sketch book for christmas?

I'm sorry guys, I gave it my best attempt. But life always seems to have other plans for me. I just need to concentrate on keeping one of my fucking cats till christmas is over.

I made it 11 days. Not even half way ):


on a brighter note, We had found a bull snake in the near by park. It was very odd because of how cold it is right now.
we couldn't just leave him out there, so we have a new little pet for awhile!

He has an attitude of course, but he is tolerating handling. he has a problem that one of his eyes is cloudy because he needs a good shed, so we are soaking him and stuff. hes in good hands, don't worry.
Now, we are trying to find a good name for him. (I liked Aydin, because he acted much like a certain character from my stories, but my cousin rolled his eyes at me)


I'm so sorry guys. Events never turn out as planned. If I can't get on for awhile, I hope yu all have a Merry Christmas, and happy holidays.

Yeah, me as well. I still dont have a tumblr though. I REFUSE to get any more invested into social media. I already use facebook and unfollow all of the people who friended me. This means that we are still friends, they dont get butt hurt about it and I NEVER have to see any of their posts. ITS THE BEST THING EVER.
and then I liked a TON of reptile pages, so now my FB is just full of lizard lizard snake lizard snake snake lizard snake.

I always get so happy going on facebook now XD

I've just recently starting posting on DA again. I've been writing another story in my spare time (which is so little anymore) and posting a few chapters up here every now and then.
