Star Wars Episode 63: Turn of the Jedi 1The twin suns of Tatooine had hung over him his whole life, watching, protecting, and yet always the impetus for progression, for change. They’d been high in the sky that fateful day he’d acquired the droids, the day that everything changed. But they’d also been there when he’d returned to old Ben’s hut to complete his new lightsaber, and once again they were overhead, two unblinking eyes with the heat and the brightness that could only come from home. Luke had promised himself he’d never be coming back to this rock on the far side of the Outer Rim, but now he’d returned the place didn’t seem quite so suffocating. He’d seen the galaxy, or a good chunk of it, and now there was some work to do, he had to rescue a good friend.Star Wars Episode 63: Turn of the Jedi 1 by jim-ruggeri
3PO and R2 had been sent down this same dirt path three days earlier, as gifts for the landlord of the palace that was quickly looming over him in size. What had once been a monastery for the ghostly, spider-like

Dancing into the Night: Part Nine
It was a surprisingly sunny day, though still cold due to the time of year. But it was bright and full of unexpected promise to all those who were able to witness it. Countless clouds dotted the pale blue sky making the sun dance gaily between them; peeking out to tease the populace below from time to time with bursts of heat. All in all it was a gorgeous October day, but it was mostly lost on Lynara as she placed a tankard down before one of her customers. As the man grunted his thanks, the barmaid nodded to him before she returned back to the counter where several more mugs awaited her. With calloused hands she picked up three of the large cups and began to walk towards the two tables housed with men awaiting their ale. The young woman was sure in her steps and her hands were assured as they placed two of the tankards down and then moved to the next table with the last mug. But as she set it down before the ma

All of us stood in a circle around the holographic table which was currently displaying a map of the entire space station. A small red spot blinked red, indicating our current position, and slightly further away, a blinking black spot represented the alien’s reported position.
“You’re asking us to battle the alien?” Cornelia’s voice went down by an octave, emphasizing her anger at the absurd task that had suddenly been thrust upon us.
Nina merely nodded, oblivious to the increasing tension in the room. “Obviously. The guards stand no chance. You guys are our only hope.”
“How about the emergency purge?” I asked.
“No. We stand to lose everything if we do that. It basically means packing up our bags and going back home.” Nina shook her head vigorously.
“That’s better than dying,” Kallen retorted.
I Am a MonsterI Am a Monster by Predaliena
Walls… Just four bright walls around me…
Where am I? How did I get here? I can’t remember a damn thing. Did I get here myself or were I brought here by someone? No idea, I remember nothing. My clothes… where are they? I feel just cold air touching my bare skin. And my body… What going on with my body?
Am I dead? Well, if I’m still moving and breathing, it’s impossible. But what’s wrong with my body, my skin? Am I… decomposing..? And why don’t I feel any pain? As far as I know, if the flesh of a living creature starts decomposing, it’s a very painful process. But I… I feel no pain at all…
No, it’s not just a simple flesh decomposition. It’s metamorphosis. I’m changing. But how am I changing? What am I becoming? A living corpse? A monster? Whatever it is, very soon I shall lose any human signs, and they will be replaced by something else, much more sinister…

Cruise With a SurpriseCruise With a Surprise by Predaliena
“Oh my god, granny! I can’t believe we’re finally going to have a Mediterranean cruise! I couldn’t wait to board this ferry!” I said joyfully while standing in a queue to the ferry.
“Yes, indeed, my dear,” my grandmother replied, “we can finally manage to visit the countries that we haven’t been to yet. I always wanted to visit France and Italy. We’ve been already to Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Turkey and Egypt, but not yet in France and Italy”.
“I know. That’s why you preferred this offer among all others. But as far as I know, your dream was to see Paris, or? And it’s not included in the program”.
“That’s a pity, of course, but never mind. At least we will see what Cote d'Azur is like,” granny said, “and don’t forget that grandfather can’t walk too long distances because of his leg. He’d prefer to have a rest on the beach. Isn’t it?” she turned h

“Well, how is your friend, Astrid? Is she fine?” I asked.
“Pretty fine, more or less” she said, “she’s not going to stay here for a long time. Her health is improving fast, so she will be leaving this place soon”.
“I’m glad to hear it” I replied, “this hospital is really a good one, service quality is one of the best ones in the city”.
“Yes, and the chief doctor is so damn handsome…” Astrid grinned, “I’d love to have him as my boyfriend”.
“Hush, he’s coming!” I whispered, “be quiet or he will hear you!”
Before Astrid could finish the phrase, the chief doctor appeared from his office. I noticed her blushing heavily but she turned away from him, so he wouldn’t notice it. At that moment we reached the lift, pushing the button. Soon enough it came, the doors opened, and I started talking:
“Hey, you know what? I…”
