Lord Walter's Estate: Ch. 1 "Dustin!" The shrill cry pierced my ears. I snarled and flattened my ears against my head. The woman, Iruna, started waving her hands at me and kicking her feet, carefully avoiding Chev the entire time. I growled and barked at her as Snow Prince skidded into the room. He smelled like a horse, having just come in from the small stavle where Stella, their ridiculous domesticated pet, resided.
"Iruna!" Both Chev and Snow Prince cried. Snow Prince paused and looked at Chev who had his fingers intertwined in my fur.
"Get that beast out of here," Iruna spat. I growled even harder but didn't budge. Snow Prince had told me I wasn't allowed to harm the annoying woman but I did enjoy threatening her.
"It's okay, Iruna," Chev replied in his weak, whispery voice. I turned my head towards him. "He's not hurting me." I looked back at Iruna with a wolfish grin, challenging her to co
DR OCA Round 9 "You were brilliant, Maya!" Someone in the crowd cheered. Maya grinned on stage and bowed once more. Today was the last performance and it had been far better than the previous performances. Maya took another bow with the rest of the cast before her eyes glanced over to where Nick had been sitting. The chair was empty. Her grin momentarily wavered. This wasn't the first time he had mysteriously disappeared at night. Maya wished she could run right out of the theater and look for him. However, the crowd was always bustling to see her: the cutest one on stage.
Maya walked into her room that night feeling exhausted. She flopped down on her bed with a sigh. Archie curled up next to her.
"What are you thinking about?" Archie asked. He had grown slightly bigger, though not by much. Maya sighed and shrugged awkwardly.
"Nick is hiding something."
DR OCA Round 8 There were so many of them. So many Gifted. But Nick wasn't counting. His eyes were on the dragon. That dragon which had called every last one of them there. Even Maya, situated next to him, seemed to disappear. A dragon! He noticed a few of the companions of the other Gifted appeared dragonesque and even one of the Gifted took on dragon-like features. But before his eyes was a fully sized dragon like one might see in story books.
Nick gulped uneasily. He wasn't sure what to think but he was sure that he was going to wait in this spot for something. It was something important. He could feel it, the sense of importance hanging in the air. Then the dragon spoke.
"Nick!" Maya shook Nick awake. "You're going to be late! What are you still doing in bed?" At the foot of his bed, Kale yawned and stretched. "Get up. Get up!" Maya threw the blankets off of Nick. He shuddered once, his thick gray mane began
I stared at the open door in astonishment. Who had broken in so easily? Michael. It had to be him! That little prankster.
"Mom!" I yelled as I ran into my room. Michael sat on my bed grinning. "You better stop that!" I screamed at him. He only grinned and laughed as our mother rushed up into the room.
"Oh sweetie what's wrong!"
"Michael broke into my room!" I complained. "This isn't fair!" Our mother frowned and sighed.
"Matthew you should learn to share with your brother more." I sighed and nodded, taking the lecture with a positive attitude. This made Michael mad. I knew he wanted to see me get in trouble for a change. Instead, our mother whirled on him. "You know your brother doesn't like you breaking into his room Michael!" She waved her finger at him. Instead of flinching or feeling guilty he merely held himself higher.
"But Matthew should share! This isn't fair." He pouted. Our mother sighed and waved her hand as she walked out of the
