AloneShe leaned further over the dashboard the closer we got to the barricade, where three guards in green toted guns that should have been too heavy. Their faces remained hard as we approached.Alone by laurotica
"Let me do the talking," I told her.
"They're going to let us in, right?" she asked, the hope draining from her face.
"They have to, but I know how these guys are. I'll make sure we get in as soon as possible."
She nodded. "I trust you."
We stopped shy of the doors, and a guard took a spot at each side of the car. I put the windows down and they scanned our eyes, and when the beep it produced was satisfactory, the third guard approached my side.
"You lookin' for a place to say?" he asked between chews on something black.
I nodded back to her. "Her family is in there."
"What's the last name?"
The guard on the other side of the car piped up. "Only Spencer I know is Astro, that crazy fuck."
Her face lit up. She told me a long time ago that her brothe
The Alkaline Man - 16It wasn't that she didn't like talking to people. It wasn't even that she was shy, necessarily. When you got right down to it, Miranda didn't have any problems with people or interacting with people in general. What she had a problem with was uncertainty. She wanted to know where she stood and what was expected of her. Give her a meeting with a set purpose, an outing with a goal, a social gathering with a central activity, and she'd be fine. A meeting with no purpose though, an outing with people she didn't know who just wanted to “hang” or worst of all, a social gathering where people were just being social, and Miranda felt like curling up under a rock to die. She couldn't cope with that. The worst was the kind of uncertainty where you were unsure if you were actually wanted, if everyone really wanted you to be at the meeting, if you weren't just on the outing on the whim of a friend who was making the others uncomfortable by having you, if you hadn't just bThe Alkaline Man - 16 by Kereth-Midknight

Together, their eyes scanned the yard ahead, looking out the windows of the front parlor. All was still, at the moment. A car had come screeching by a few minutes back, and there was the occasional sign of a wandering individual, but nothing that had concerned them directly.
The question came well after dark. Their dinner completed, the group had sequestered themselves within Dr. Barton's house, secured behind all possible defenses, and had taken up stations to protect it. Kent was on the west-facing side of the house, toward the front yard, with Miranda opposite, facing the back yard to the east. Mortimer secured the south side of the building, with Dr. Barton to the north. The girl was assigned the responsibility of reloading clips as needed and making sure people stayed awake, and Margie, having the baby to look after (and because Kent and the doctor had privately agreed that they didn't want too much responsibility placed on the shoulders of someon
Dead Horse Rising - 76It would have been a mistake to assume they were safe. The sound of their vehicle kicking into motion carried over much of the surrounding neighborhood, and as they pulled out onto the road, figures were already emerging from nearby buildings, moving to cut them off.Dead Horse Rising - 76 by Kereth-Midknight
It felt like something out of an action movie. John reacted as though it was, following prompts he'd learned from countless better-trained road warriors on the big screen. Never mind that those prompts usually involved driving with two hands.
Clumsily shifting gears, he revved his engine, letting it roar as he tore for the nearest available opening with all speed. Figures lunged from both sides, and he swerved in a zigzag pattern to avoid them, making the vehicle lurch from side to side as he did so. He kicked the gears up one by one as the engine grew louder and louder. He was going fast enough, soon, that many of those who heard him coming did not have time to intercept, while others were becoming hesitant to try. Good.
Pixal Art RequestsI know I haven't been writing recently, but I have recently lost touch on my writing, so since I am resitting my English, I am going to sort them out, so whenever my teacher tells me I've improved, I will write a story. So for now, I am learning how to do pixel characters for one of my lessons, so I am going to accept anyone you request me to do a pixel art of. It can be a character from a game, movie, anime etc., a youtuber... anyone. So you are free to request!Pixal Art Requests by 10thShapiroBoss
