Don't JumpIt's not such a long way down. That's what I tell myself as I stare at the ground below me. But then...jumping would accomplish nothing. I would live if it weren't such a long way down. I close my eyes and the image of that boy is in my head. I can feel a tear escape and run down my cheek. He would never love me. I knew this for a fact. I had spent my whole life with him. He had been my closest friend. And recently, I had been hoping we could be more. But he would never choose me. I knew he wouldn't. I was too simple and plain.

I would finally be
DR OCA Round 5 "Is that it?" Maya jumped up in her seat, her hands slamming on the dashboard of the truck. Archie jumped from her lap, landing on the dashboard between her hands. His tiny claws skittered as he tried to get traction on the sleek plastic. He bumped his head into the glass windshield.
"Owie," his tiny, fire paws rubbed his head. In the driver's seat, on Nick's lap, Kale chuckled to himself. Archie frowned and slammed his tiny paws onto the dashboard in the same manner Maya had. "Meanie!" Archie cried to the creature. Kale merely yawned and closed his eyes.
Once Maya, Nick, and Archie had arrived in Phoenix, Nick had insisted on renting a vehicle. There wasn't a place to do so before Phoenix, so Nick immediately jumped on the opportunity.
"If I have to take a single step to get anywhere for the rest of my life," he had stated, "I shall go mad." At the moment, however, h

AMADEUS DROOPED HER HEAD AND SIGHED. SHE KNEW OF THE CURSE THAT HAUNTED MALIK. SHE KNEW WHAT NATURE INTENDED. IT WOULD EVENTUALLY RUIN HIM. SHE KNEW IF SOMETHING WEREN'T DONE, MALIK WOULD DIE. WHAT BOTHERED HER WAS THAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

"GODS," JAVIER GROANED AS HE SAT UP FROM THE CONCRETE FLOOR. "WHERE THE HELL AM I?" THERE WAS A CONSTANT POUNDING IN HIS HEAD AND HE COULDN'T BE SURE IF IT WAS A NORMAL HEADACHE OR NOT. HE ATTEMPTED TO LOOK AROUND HIMSELF TO SEE WHERE HE WAS, BUT MOVEMENT ONLY BROUGHT PAIN.
"YOU'RE IN A DUNGEON," A VOICE CALLED FROM SOMEWHERE ABOVE HIM. JAVIER QUICKLY LOOKED UP TOWARDS THE SPEAKER. HIS ENTIRE SPINE BURST INT
