|Afternoon Tea: Part Four"Well," began the Shoyru. "We have all sorts of flavors of coffee, cappuccino, latte, hot chocolate, tea..."
The last word lingered in the air. Tea. For a brief moment, all of the details in Afton's life vanished as that one word echoed in her mind...|
|Legend Seekers: Mysterious Magic - Part FivePemero stood for a moment, gazing into the narrow space, eyes wide and fearful. Then, as the sound of screeching footsteps filled the air behind him, he also shed his cloak and dove into the pipe...|

If Giving Gets Growls
Valentine's Day is a travesty! It ought to be cancelled, or at the very least reinvented. And I think I know exactly how to do that. Maybe. Seriously. If you're going to give a gift, make it good.
