A Girl By The SeaThere was once a young girl who lived in a house, a house that lay by the sea."Tis a nice little house," the girl had said, as she sipped and sipped at her tea.But the girl was quite sad as she sat in her house to weep and sob for her own.There was poor sense to cry, for she had known friends who would never have left her alone.But soft! Be known, 'twas a knock at the door, which had startled the girl as she stood.She moved from the room, and spoke past the door, "Who's there from far yonder hood?""I am a very old man," spoke he from the door, "And I have a fine question for you."The girl made reply, "Be quick in your words, for I have much brooding to do."The question was quick, and the old man had asked, "Why are you always so sad?"The girl could not answer, for she had not one to give this curious old man.She allowed him inside and offered him tea as she had stolen away to study.She thought long and hard for an answer to give, but soon came back in ruddy."I am sorry, goo
Earthly Endeavour - Side ASide Ⓐ1926, Liverpool, England; this is the home of a girl named Maggie Cross. Maggie was a wonderful child, wanting a spectacular future that not many people would appreciate. Little had she known about a secret that could change her life forever. As she headed home from the store, she noticed a small glowing spot in the middle of the road. She knew it was abnormal, but she couldn't explain it. She looked up to the sky to see if something was shining down on the road. To her astonishment, there was nothing. She continued searching the sky, looking for something that could be the source of that glow on the ground. She searched hard for anything. The ground couldn't just glow by itself. By the time she looked back at the glow, it was gone.This looks like an investigation! She thought in her head. She began sprinting home to grab her adventure set. She burst through the front door to her house, tossed the groceries on the kitchen table, went to her room an
Time of a Lord Pt. 5"Well, well, well. Look who's in charge." I said in the presence of the Dalek Leader in charge of the assault. Jane and I had been brought to the bridge of the enemy's flagship by Daleks.Jane whispered in my ear. "You know him?""No. Not at all. I just felt like saying that.""Identify yourself.""I'm the Bachelor," I said, clapping my hands together in a dramatic way. "I'm here to end this fight between you and those renegade Daleks.""You dare to challenge the Da-leks?" it asked in the usual cold, metallic voice the Daleks were infamous for, "You dare to challenge the supreme Da-lek race? You will be ex-ter-min-at-ed!"Quickly, I pulled out my screwdriver and used it to disable the internal motor workings of the Daleks' metal casings. The eye stocks of all the Daleks in the room dropped down slowly."Sir, you did it!" exclaimed Jane."No, I haven't done much. All I did was disable their casings. They can still send a distress signal to the other Daleks."The leader Dalek's casing li
DaliThis place is ancient, like the great temples of the god almighty above. I have lived here for many years, seeking the reason that the people live here. Why do they live in this place, when so many divine secrets lure many from alien lands to claim them? Those people have pillaged this place many times in search of the divinities the lords of old have left here, only to find nothing in there wake. There is fascination to behold here, how the people of this city have grown accustomed to the raids. It is truly a wonder that these people can live in this city they proudly call Dali.
Time of a Lord Pt. 4I took a deep breath of the dusty air. The ventilation shafts had been unkempt for a while. Jane and I had crawled through the ducts for many minutes, trying to find our way to a part of the ship that would help end this dogfight between the Daleks. First was the Communications Array. Without that, the attacking fleet would have less control of their Dalek forces."Sir, how do you plan on defeating these Daleks?" asked Jane, crawling closely behind me."That's a good question. It's kind of a work-in-progress. Forgive me if it seems like I'm not sure of what I'm doing.""You're forgiven."I smiled something small and quick, so as not to let Jane know, but she noticed it anyway."Why did you smile?""I just
appreciated your response. It was wonderful."Though I couldn't see her because of the ventilation shaft, I could tell she was blushing with joy. If I were to take a wild guess, I would say that she didn't expect me to be so nice to her. I knew who was to blame for her thought;
