The Special Ones. Vad's Story.

We come to the third part in the "Special Ones" Trilogy. Never guessed for one moment when I started my little story I would end up with my very own trilogy!

Vad's story, you probably are not going to be too surprised to find out, is about Vad. Through him we find out a little more of the back story of the Special Ones and we bring things to a conclusion, with a few bumps and a few hugs on the way of course.

I have tried to create three distinct stories, each with their own character and feel. But tied together with one common thread running through them. I hope it has worked? And you have/will enjoy the journey. :-)

Oh, and a big thank you for the many kind words and encouragement, it really has spured me on. Thanks.

The long dusty road to happiness.

The long dusty road to happiness.

When she had been young she understood how unforgiving this land that gave no second chances really was, yet now she sought one last chance at redemption.

As the wind howled across the broken expanse, rattling the bones of the dead and blasting the already dried out grass, she walked ever onwards through the stinking dust and the heat haze. Her red lips once beautiful to look at, now cracked and parched like the earth that had not seen rain in many decades. The soft skin around her painted nails had blistered from the uncaring assault of the burning earth beneath her feet. Lurching onwards almost like a ghostly mirage in the heat on the dust bowl, her skin burnt from the sun and the wind, from the agony of life around her. She knew she had to push onwards for behind her lay only shame.

The Special Ones

It's been nine months since we last saw Petra and Catarina and life has been good. But ghosts of the past have not forgotten them and storm clouds are gathering. Can their love survive?

Although 'The Special Ones' can be read as a stand alone I would suggest reading 'The Special One' first as there are a number of references to the earlier story.

I consider myself very much a beginner and always looking for ways to improve my story telling. This time I am trying a few pictures, they take an age to do and I would love to know if you feel they add to the story or distract? Any comments gratefully received, though please be kind there is a fragile newbee's ego on the line here :-)

Red Shoes - Part 5

Red Shoes - Part Five
by KaylaKayKee

Wednesday July 26

Dearest Diary,

Had another great day, even if I didn’t got to see Mike. But I think I am getting to find my new style! I know, I used to dress really boring and not taking much time to make myself presentable. But now, I discover all these really cute clothes I have that I never bothered with before. Can you imagine?

A Christmas Story

lights06.gif

Naughty or Nice

This is a tale about a girl who has, for the most part, lived a very relaxing and pampered life. But, from time to time, she has a rather “naughty” side that wanted to come out and play.

One year, Rebecca became especially worried about her actions throughout the year, wondering if she would make Santa’s Naughty or Nice list for Christmas.

This story was inspired by a sexy pink Santa stocking cap at a local convenience store that simply stated, “Naughty or Nice” on the white trim. It inspired a “photo shoot” and the story followed.
I hope you enjoy!

Merry Christmas, and remember to temper your naughtiness throughout the year, even though being naughty is DEFINITELY more fun!

XO Rebecca

(This is the TEXT version of the story. Please download the PDF file to appreciate the story as it was composed.)

The Fundraiser/Or How I Was Volunteered For The Womanless Beauty Pageant

Pre-pageant2_0.jpg
The Fundraiser Part 1 of 3
Or How I Was Volunteered To Be In a Womanless Beauty Pageant
By Nina Adams

My life as I knew it gets turned upside down for a fundraiser at my High School. What started as just an embarrassing request leads to so much more.

The Mall Holiday Pageant

I was tricked into this and now there is no way out of it unless I walk in front of a bus or something equally drastic! Mom is the store manager for “Growing Things” and no it isn’t a gardening shop. It just happens to be a very popular store for kids from infant to Tween. It also happens to be for girls only.

My twin sister Lucy and I say the twin part loosely, has been going on about this Christmas pageant event for months now! It will soon stop because Thanksgiving is in two weeks and she’ll be in the pageant and I’ll get some peace and quiet for a change.

A Bad Girl to Good Boy Story: Chrissie to Chris to Christopher

A Bad Girl to Good Boy Story: Chrissie to Chris to Christopher

By Trapper Jock McIntyre

Chrissie Latham is an obnoxious teenage girl. All she ever thinks about is shopping and clothes. When her grades start to slip, her mother decides to send her to visit her Aunt Betty in a place way far away for malls and Limited Too. Can this place that is like night and day to Chrissie, change her from being a bad girl into being a good boy?

Daughter of Mars

The-planet-mars.jpg

Most people know the name Edgar Rice Burroughs from his most popular character "TARZAN". Burroughs did have several other characters with John Carter being his first, appearing in a serialized story in a 1912 pulp magazine called The All-Story under the title Under the Moons of Mars. The story was renamed and published as a book called A Princess of Mars. Now out of copyright, the first five books are seeing adaptations of ERBs first hero.

The story is written as pulp fiction and is an attempt to copy the writing style of the early twentieth century. As in most of ERB stories, the heroes are strong, faithful, and valiant; the women are beautiful, virtuous, and adored; while the villians are cruel, cowardly, and despicably evil. In the end good always triumphs over evil.
