Reality Ruined My LifeCurtis adjusted his tie. Here he was in front of the door to his old home, trying to look as neat and put together as possible. He was coming home for a quaint family dinner with just him, his mother, and Ceres. They tried to do this at least once a month so they could just have time to be with each other and keep up their family bond which was honestly improving. Curtis found that he could talk to his mother about things he had never been confident to share with her before, and she had oddly enough become far more accepting and gentle towards him. She was finally dropping that harsh exterior.
Ceres was fourteen now, and turning into quite the beauty queen. She had her mother’s intensity, and also a bit of a bratty, manipulative side, but usually during these dinners she behaved herself. Still, she had a habit of rolling her eyes too often, and giving stares that could make anyone think she was about to vaporize you with her vision. Oh the joys of being related to a teenaged girl
This is long overdueA tall figure in a dark green military shirt and camouflage colored military pants rushed through the chaotic night. Flares burst into life occasionally, magic and bombs also aiding in lighting up the dark landscapes around them. The man refused to stop running. Something was forcing him forward and through this camp which had once been a fairly safe place where all the men around him stood tall and proud, but now the majority of them were laying on the ground, wounded or dead. Cain was one of the few still standing.
He didn't have any weapons on him, he had simply woken and rushed out of his tent without a hesitation. His brother, Collen, was on guard duty tonight. He had to reach him! Right now! Nothing could stop him from being the protective older brother that he was, and on top of that this was the first time he'd seen Collen in over a month. Their troops had gathered here together for the first time and Cain had never been so relieved, but now this had to happen and nothing was c
So much to live forHe sighed and wiped some sweat from his brow, setting his axe down and looking at the lumber he'd worked on chopping today. He was exhausted, but it was about time for him to go home, along with the other workers around him. Two of them being his older brother and father, but he sort of had plans for after work today. He put his axe away, and then waved to his father and brother before rushing out of the mill and heading to a designated spot where he always met his special someone. It was their favorite picnic spot, weather permitting, but today was a lovely day.
He unbuttoned his long sleeve shirt, having a plain white, old and dirty t-shirt underneath which had some obvious sweat stains, but if his girlfriend had been disgusted by sweaty men she wouldn't have had a boyfriend in District 7, unless he didn't work at the mill. Ash ran the last few steps, then smiled as he saw his gorgeous, blonde girlfriend sitting on a blanket and waving to him from where she was sitting. He ran over,
Stand tall and face it all togetherHe first realized that Gigi was under the Imperius Curse when she tried to strangle him in his sleep. He woke to the feeling of her small, pale hands trying to wrap around his neck and apply pressure. Being an Auror in training meant he knew how to defend himself against foes and trouble makers, but his own wife? Surely he couldn't harm her. Thankfully she's a tiny little thing and he easily grabbed her wrists and pulled her hands back from his throat, although he did manage to bruise her wrists with the pressure he used to keep her unrelenting grip from returning to his neck. After that he had her sent to St. Mungos, since he knew he couldn't manage this alone. He needed the aid of people who might be able to take care of her, and get this curse off of her. He knew he had to find out who was after him, too. He knew that could be a long list of people, since he had been out on the field once or twice with his other Auror trainees. They were known for making some dangerous enemies, afte
The Beginnings of a Romance"My dear sister,
I hope this letter reaches you in good health. I'm afraid a horrible illness has fallen upon myself and my eldest daughter, Truth. As you know, without my husband at my side anymore it has become very difficult to find help and as such I fear this illness will take my life and my daughter's, but my youngest, Perseverance, has not caught this illness and I beg that you take her in and care for her. You know I would do the same for your children.
I know these are difficult times for both of us, since your husband left your side as well, but I pray you will show mercy to my dear one.
I pray you remain well,
Your sister; Integrity."
She looked from the letter to the lanky young girl standing at her doorstep in a worn gown that looked a little long for her, likely a hand me down from her eldest sister, and then back to the letter.
"I see my sister gives me yet another mouth to feed." She said in an aggravated tone. The girl looked down as though she was ashame
This is going to hurtCurtis ran down the hallway, pushing nurses and doctors out of his way as he ran with desperation. His scarf was uneven around his neck, and his hair was wind blown and a mess. He had a teary look in his eyes and then he came up to the door and just as he began to open it a doctor exited the doorway. The doctor put his hands on Curtis' shoulders to prevent him from entering the room.
"You must be Mr. Fletchkiss. Please calm down, sir. Let me tell you the diagnosis before you enter." The doctor said calmly. Curtis tried to look past him to catch sight of Wesley, but then he nodded. He was already too choked up to talk. The doctor sighed and looked at him. "I'm afraid Wesley was very badly wounded. Fatally so. We've done everything we can possibly do, and we've come to the conclusion that he was struck with some fatal Dark Magic, and we can't...do anything."
Curtis' eyes widened with horror. "What are you talking about!? We have magic! Use magic! You have to save him!" Curtis deman
Fletchkiss Vacations"What do you mean you told them it'd be alright to bring their boyfriends? You didn't seriously tell them that they could bring their boyfriends on our yearly winter cabin trip, Wesley." Curtis said as he stood in the kitchen, arms crossed, and staring quite pointedly at his husband.
Wesley shrugged, leaning against the counter in the kitchen. "Well, they asked me and I said yes. I didn't see a problem with it, honestly. They've both been dating pretty seriously for a while, and going on vacations with your significant other is a big deal." Wesley said as he looked at him.
"No, absolutely not. This is not happening." Curtis stated firmly. "Where are Ignatius and Nate going to sleep? Not in the same bed with Noelle and Nick, that's for sure."
Wesley shook his head. "No, no. But we'll figure out a comfy arrangement. The cabin is pretty roomy, you know." He pointed out.
Curtis snapped his fingers. "Oh, they can sleep on the floor." He decided with a nod.
"Curtis-" Wesley started, but then
