Before I Woke ch. 7Chapter 7 Memories part 2
Disclaimer: I don't own Alice. If I did, she'd be real and my second best friend because Alexis is my best friend. So with that, let's begin! ! (BTW: My beta wrote that amazing and tear-jerking last part)
I close my eyes, trying to block out the sudden flow of memories. There are too many painful things to think about, now that I'm locked up in this place. But no matter what I try, they still manage to come. I squeeze my eyes shut, bring my knees to my chest, and rock myself back and forth, trying to concentrate on not remembering.
A bright white light flashes in front of my eyes temporarily, blinding me. I breathe rapidly as my panic increases.
A sharp, electrifying pain courses throughout my veins, beginning at my head and circuiting throughout my body. I cry out and close my eyes, trying to find some way to relieve the pain.
I fall deeper and deeper into darkness consuming me, into nothingness.
I gasp. My eyes fly open as I realize what I just saw. Panic
Before I Woke - Chapter 6 Memories (part 1)Author’s Notes:
Hey, Everyone. Happy holidays!
Before I Woke is no longer on Hiatus ! I’m really glad because I felt pretty bad about leaving you waiting with no idea of when I’d start writing again, so I thought posting this for a pre-Christmas present. And I’m more than half way done with chapter seven, so expect another post within the next few days.
Hope you enjoy this chapter!
Disclaimer: I probably should have been writing these from the beginning, but better late than never. - I don’t own Alice or Cynthia, they were created by the wonderful Stephenie Meyers. Everyone else is mine all mine. I’m not making any money from this, so don’t sue me, Stephenie, gomen.
Chapter 6 Memories (part 1)
Darkness. Complete darkness has been constant since the first day I was admitted to this wretched hell hole.
Day in, day out, complete darkness.
And as the days went by, I started to lose track of ti
Before I woke - chapter 5Chapter 5 Betrayal
My father wants to kill me.
Over the years, I had come to realize that I wasn't my father’s favorite person and he didn’t exactly like me either, what with me always drawing unwanted attention to the family with my visions. We never had a close father-daughter relationship. But I never would have imagined in my wildest dreams that would be enough for him to want me dead.
I sit in the quiet darkness of my room, unsure of what to do. All I know is that I can't stay here, not unless I want to die.
I pull back the covers slowly, quietly stepping out of bed. I tiptoe across the room, grabbing a pair of shoes out of my closet. Tiptoeing back, I slowly open the door, careful not to wake my sleeping family members.
I creep quietly down the hall, only stopping when I come in front of Cynthia's room. I open the door and step inside. She sleeps soundly. Her soft, wavy hair shines silver in the moonlight.
Moving closer to the bed, I place a soft hand on her hair.
Before I Woke - Chapter 4Chapter 4 Unforeseen
January 11, 1919
It has been a little over six months since Mama passed and it would seem as if my entire world has been turned upside down. Papa has all but forgotten Mama. He acts as if she never existed, glad that she was gone even. It just doesn't seem right. He didn’t even seem to mourn her death, not even a little bit. And what was even more suspicious was that he had started dating some blonde women from Chicago less than a month after she died. Her father is a good client of Papa’s; that’s how they met initially.
Ms. Veronica Crooney-now Brandon- is her name, and she is the most pernicious woman that has ever walked the earth. She absolutely adores Cynthia, and treats her as if she is a child of gold. Though she unquestionably hates me. We often get into arguments, which always ends with me getting punished. I adamantly hate Veronica and wish she would go back to Chicago where she belongs.
I set my diary on my nightstand and m
Before I Woke - Chapter 3June 26, 1918
It has been four months since I had the vision of Mama being killed. Everyone has been on edge since then. Every slam of a door or drop of a glass makes me jump. I guess you could say that I'm being paranoid, but what choice do I have? I can't do anything that will risk Mama's life. I don't know what to do. I'm so scared. I really hope Papa is right about my vision being wrong. I really do.
I look out to the shoreline, watching the sun set. Waves crash onto the beach and recede back into the vast ocean.
I close my diary and set it down on the soft sand. I had went to the beach earlier today. It always helps calm my nerves, which have been really high lately.
I've been here for hours thinking about Mama; she is always in my thoughts nowadays. I think about how she used to tuck me in and read me bedtime stories, or when she would sing to me when I fell and scraped my knee. But my thoughts would always end up going back to the vision of her death. With her lying
Before I Woke - Chapter 2Chapter 2 Fright
It is sunny outside, another beautiful day in Biloxi, Mississippi that I am forced to stay within the perimeter of our property line, not that I went out much before, but ever since Cynthia’s birthday my father had been even more strict about me going out.
I sit on the old tire swing underneath the massive Weeping Willow, slowly swing back and forth, while I read my favorite book; “Forgotten in the Garden.”
Hours pass as I wait for Cynthia to return from school. When I hear a blood curling scream coming from the house. I run back inside to see where it came from. I step into the kitchen; no one is there, “Mama?” I call, no one answers.
I look in every room one by one finding nothing, “Mama?!” I call again, my voice slightly hysterical. I wait listening for an answer; nothing. I start to look up stairs, when I hear a m

You felt a sensation through your body as electrical surges ran through your body before you were awaken from your rest. You heard music across the screen before you were dropped from the top of the screen, almost hitting the floor...if it wasn't for the mouse cursor. Whoever your new master was, they weren't mean at least.
"Hello there. I'm..."
~Kissing You Better~ Erwin x Reader Chapter 1
"Ouch! Watch where you're-oh!" Shit, it was higher-up. Double shit! It was Commander Erwin himself. Great. How am I supposed to advance the ranks in the Corps if I disrespect the commander on my first day as a member of the scouting legion? you thought. You bowed your head slightly, you entire tone of voice changing. "I'm so sorry sir! it won't happen again!"
When you did not hear him say anything, you looked up to see a smile on his lips, a sparkle in his bright blue eyes. "I see, cadet. If I were anyone else, you would have chewed me out, am I right?"
You began to squirm under the intensity of his gaze. He was calling you out on you behavior. Wonderful. Slowly, you began to nod, feeling that admitting to it was better than standing there, frozen in fear.
He patted you on the shoulder. "I'd much prefer if you'd treat me like you do everyone else. I am just another person, after all. Or, better yet, treat everyone like you treat me. Kindness and compassion is more likely to solve probl
~Kissing You Better~ Erwin x Reader Chapter 3
This was an absolute nightmare. You stood high up in a ridiculously tall tree at the entrance to a forest of even larger trees, looking down at the grotesque faces of titans, all too eager to tear you limb from limb. What the hell was going on in the forest, where Erwin's group had entered not to long ago, followed by Squad Levi and most lately by that Female-type titan?
After a single glance at her, you were immediately unsettled and confused. Why did she look so familiar to you?
Snarling as an aberrant titan began climbing between two trees to say hello to you and eat you for dinner, you surveyed the surrounding area. After seeing no other titans in the immediate vicinity, you lunged downwards with your gear and a slashed a wide chunk out of its neck. It fell to the ground with a dull thump!
You maneuvered your way closer towards a group of people. Soldiers were supposed to stay with their squads, but considering yours was dead, you'd have to make do. Being placed on the right flank
~Kissing You Better~ Erwin x Reader Chapter 2
For the next few weeks, you did your absolute best to find a reason to go to your commander, whether it be for delivering paper work or randomly bringing him a cup of tea or some food you snagged from the larder, stating that it was good for him to get something to drink or eat every once in a while. He never turned you away, so he must not have been bothered by your intrusions. As a matter of fact, he requested to see you several times, all for business, though the tasks he asked you to complete were things any random cadet could've done for him. But he always asked for you.
Today was no different, as the two of you sat quietly in his office, sipping tea from mugs as he worked through paper work while you sorted papers, filed some and packed and sealed others in envelopes. You found yourself constantly looking at his serene features while he worked. Commander Erwin rarely looked up once he was focused on something, no matter how trivial it may have been. That dedication was part of wh
Seth And Natalee Part III
Sitting next to Sadie, Nat gave her the rest of her sandwich as she started to pick berries, eating one while she's at it.
The delicious taste of the berries made her smile, wishing Seth were here to enjoy these.
In the meantime, Seth was having a quite pleasant time too.
A loud, guttural gurgle was hear as the squirming form of his latest catch was slowly kneaded down his snake body, further swelling his already thick tail until finally end its trip, tightly pressed inside the dark, slimy tomb of the naga's second stomach.
Seth sighed in relief, happily twitching his tail while licking his lips in satisfaction.
Although he wasn't completely full, this deer was nice and big, putting out a quite wild fight inside him, much to the very organ's delight.
Nat gave Sadie a berry to try, to which the dog declined by backing away from it. "Come on, Sadie." Natalee giggled. "You won't know that you like it until you try it."
~Epiphany~ Levi x Reader PREMISE!
That damned room was so fucking claustrophobic. Sighing as you twisted around in the hospital bed, you winced when a bolt of pain shot through your head.
"Oh, hell," you whispered, wincing in pain. You wondered if this is what your mother had felt that night, so many years ago. Or was it worse? The thought echoed in your mind as the memory flashed through your mind, incapable of forgetting it.
"Momma? Why are you sending me to bed so early?" five-year-old you had asked, wrapping your small hands in your mother's skirt.
She smiled at you fretfully. "I've got something I need to do before I go back to work tomorrow, dear," she had said, her smile looking strained.
"Aw, you have to go back to work?" you sighed, your small, childish face twisting into an adorable pout. "The survey corps never lets you have long breaks, do they mother?"
"Well, if I succeed at what I plan on doing, I'll be on a permanent break, honey," she said, picking you up and setting you on you bed, tucking you in betwe
Seth And Natalee Part II
As Natalee kissed him again, the naga looked at her for a moment and then closed his eyes, letting a resigned but yet amused smirk cross his lips while sighing quietly.
"She will really never change…"
"It's about hours you're out..." he said, noticing that the sun had already moved so much "Your friend could be worried about you"
"Would you like to meet Kale?" the girl said sweetly to Seth. "He's supposed to be back with my friend, Aggy."
Seth narrowed his eyes, looking up thoughtfully.
Actually, he had other plans for the day, but, before today, he hadn't ever known such strange human like this girl and the idea to meet this Kale too intrigued him very much.
"All right, take me to them" he finally decided.
Smiling cheerfully, Natalee pulled his hand to direct him to her home. There, Kale and Aggy was sitting on the porch, eating some berries he and Agatha picked today.&
Sonic Pure Chaos: Chapter 1Chapter I
The Power Of The Emeralds
Just outside of Mobius lies a great, gray deadly weapon, the Death Egg. This where Sonic's battle with Dr. Eggman takes place.
Deep within Eggman's industrial base is the main control room. Here, Eggman himself is seen giving Sonic a sinister smirk from inside his gigantic Death Egg Robot, as Sonic glares at him with fury.
"You won't win, Egghead!", Sonic exclaimed. "I'm just too fast for you and your robots."
"That's what you think!", Eggman laughed. "With the power of all seven chaos emeralds in my clutches, you don't stand a chance against me and my Death Egg Robot."
"Ha!", Sonic yelled. "That hunk of scrap metal couldn't leave a scratch on me. And even if I actually needed help, I have a great pal of mine on his way."
"Oh," Eggman pretended to gasp.
Eggman stepped back, revealing a horrified Tails in a cage with laser bars, hanging from a silver chain.
"Is this your backup, or do you not need it?",
Autumn nights“Where will you sleep?” He asked, superiorly, gazing at the forest floor around them, after carefully choosing his own spot, which was both dry and sheltered, squinting as the autumnal light fled fast. She padded here and there, pretending to inspect the ground, as a critic might examine a work of art, before finally meandering back, and promptly falling down on top of him- which wiped the smirk off his face to her vast amusement, replaced by a blushing one which made her chuckle. She snuggled into his shirt, fitting perfectly on his huge chest.
“I’ll sleep here,” she said in a superior tone, “it’s far more comfortable than the rest of the ground, I’m sure.” It was a bold move, however correct her statement was; he was so warm. And autumn nights were cold. Despite this irrefutable logic, she couldn’t look into his face, still scared of the rejection it might hold. She tried to reassure herself, reminding her head she’d d
Alice and Jasper the Begining
Alice and Jasper the Beginning
I was sitting at the bar waiting, again, it has been almost thirty years since I first saw Jasper in my first vision and I still haven't found him. I've been in this small town for two weeks. I think it might be time to move on and to look elsewhere.
"Can I get you something to drink, miss?" the bar tender asks, smiling at me. I have been sitting her for about three hours I might as well if I want to keep up the human charade.
"Um "water, please."
"Coming right up." He says still smiling, and leaves the counter returning quickly. "Here you go miss, enjoy. "
"Thank you," I say politely and pretend to take a sip of the water. That's when the door opens. It was him, Jasper, I thought I would never find him. Excited, I hop down from the bar stool and approach him. "You have kept me waiting a long time." I say smiling up at him.
He ducks his head and says. "I'm sorry, ma'am." I offer him my hand, he hesitates at first, but he takes
