#47 Heart "Number 47 heart?" Zared stares at the title incredulously, "What kind of title is that?!" He faces forward again. "And what, exactly, was I supposed to be doing here? Tearing someone's heart out? A heartfelt confession?" He stops ranting suddenly, looking thoughtful. "Come to think of it, this isn't the only time I've seen this setup! Let's see..." He turns away, ruffling through some papers. "Ah ha! Here, #1, #4, 12 & 13 and there, 15... Geez, how many of these things are there?! What is this, some sort of challenge? I'll have to get ahold of the rest of them..."
#46 Star He'd never noticed there were so many stars before. Maybe it had something to do with dying, put everything into perspective. Made you wish you had taken more notice of beauty in life, rather than just the pain. Or maybe he had never laid around in the middle of nowhere looking at the stars before. It didn't really matter now. So many stars. Maybe he should've learned some of their names, they couldn't all have names? Well, he'd never find out now. So much he could have learned, so many mistakes made. He wondered if anything lived on that star.
#45 Moon "Well you see, a long time ago the Shadow, he's the god of earth and darkness, fell in love with the moon, the caretaker of magic. The land was flat and empty then, and no matter where the Shadow went, he couldn't reach the moon. So he created the trees as a bridge between them, their beauty a symbol of his love for her. "When the moon saw what he had done, she was ecstatic, for she had thought herself alone. She was so happy that she created the Deltir from moonlight to live in the trees." "Is that so?"
#42 Triangle "Look at all these runes!" Cleo exclaimed, running her hand lightly along the wall, "Here's a fancy triangle." Mika followed her to the point on the wall and examined the rune. "It's a warp gate," She said smiling. "A warp gate. Right," Cleo rolled her eyes. "It's a triangle." "It's a warp gate," Mika repeated, placing her fingers in five small indents within the triangle. She pressed, causing a disk containing the triangle to shift inward slightly, then twisted that disk so that the triangle pointed at one of the symbols around the edge. The room shifted, and changed. "Oh."
#41 Shapes So many shapes! Dria gazed through the ship's window in wonder. It had been amazing that they hadn't been killed when the kekkos found them hiding in the cargo holds. An achievement to sneak in at all. But this?! This was nothing short of a miracle! They had expected to arrive to a world terraformed to replace the one they had left. They were told there would be other creatures here, but so many! And so similar in size to her own people! They could hide! Borrow their shapes and vanish! This could truly be the home they dreamed of.
#40 Sight Emily stopped to watch for a moment, amused at the youngsters' antics. Jezza, wielding a stick as a club, was chasing Zared around in circles, hurling insults. She was thoroughly splattered with green paint, presumably from the tiny "water" balloons wielded by the three mice clinging to Zared's shoulders. Zared himself was obviously having a good time as he was laughing so hard he could barely run. Not that that kept from leaving the girl in the dust. The mice were laughing as well, and taking pot shots at every opportunity. The older woman shook her head, what a sight.
#36 Smell What a wonderful smell Kaval thought, following his nose to the kitchen. Bread, it was bread, he thought. And cinnamon. And it smelled so very very sweet. He had to get some! but it was up there on the counter, and he wasn't supposed to go up there... But. But it smelled so good! Maybe... Kavel reared up and pushed a chair over to the counter. Then he climbed up and sat on it, staring at the yummy smelling pastries on the counter. Just one, he thought, picking it up delicately. Yum! They wouldn't miss a second one, would they?
#35 Sixth Sense Gail froze, eyes glazing over at the sudden influx of magic in the area, then shook herself. Wild magic? She frowned, that was an awfully big elemental... and it felt so familiar... The crystal pendant around her neck began to hum. Him?! "you're out late." She spun around, staring at the young man who hadn't been there a moment before. "Yeah, well, you're supposed to be--" "Dead?" He raised an eyebrow. "I was gonna say south somewhat, but that works too." "I've never been good at following the rules," He grinned, "It seemed like a good time for a visit."
#34 Not Enough She was late! Late late late! She was supposed to be at the party five minutes ago!Jezza stripped off her jacket and spread her wings, leaping into the sky from the hilltop. Walking was way too slow! She couldn't believe she'd forgotten! this was the most important event all year! But what Zared had been showing them was so interesting, no one had kept track of the time... She reached her destination and skidded to a halt in the parking lot, then rushed inside. "Where is everyone?" She wondered. "Excuse me mam, but the part starts in an hour."
