  1. [font="Tahoma"]I'm sorry that took so long for me to post. I've been terribly busy with school and parts of the post did not want to work. ^^ [/font]
  2. [font="Tahoma"][center][b]Pins and Needles [/b][/center] â??[b]What if Nathan doesnâ??t know what to do?[/b]â? Phaidra asked Alex worriedly. â??[b]He will.[/b]â? Alex answered without looking back or slowing down. â??[b]Iâ??m serious Alex![/b]â? â??[b]So am I.[/b]â? He shot back. â??[b]We finally lost him didnâ??t we?[/b]â? â??[b]Well yesâ?¦ butâ?¦[/b]â? â??[b]No buts.[/b]â? He replied firmly but Phaidra could hear the anxiety in his voice just the same. She shared it. What good did it do to slip away if they couldnâ??t deal with the vampire? How were they supposed to go about their duties with someone like that about? He could be waiting for them around any corner at any time. Would Savel be able to better sense the vampiresâ?? location? Would she be able to create a shield that could block a bullet? Would she even see one coming in time to stop it? Phaidra shivered. She tried to put it out of mind but that laugh of his felt like it was still echoing about her; mocking her inability to determine where it and its owner were located. Her sense of unease rose as they approached Nathanâ??s place, intensifying as they slipped through the front doorâ?¦ [i]what the hell?[/i] [i]A vampire![/i] Her mind screamed in panic as she brought her hands up. Flames started to dance around her fingers as she hastily created a fireball and launched it straight at the blonde haired intruder. The vampire did nothing as it approached, he didnâ??t even look alarmed. Then, to her utter shock, Nathan made a tiny gesture that resulted in the magic vanishing. Alex grabbed her arm before she could react to Nathan stopping her attack. â??[b]No! Itâ??s alright! You donâ??t have to worry about him.[/b]â? Taken aback, she stared at Alex for a moment. â??[b]Heâ??s a vampire![/b]â? She protested. â??[b]I know butâ?¦[/b]â? Alex glanced at Nathan briefly and then back. â??[b]Victor is friends with Nathan.[/b]â? He explained. â??[b]Are we done trying to destroy my apartment?[/b]â? He asked the pair. Christine fixed Nathan with a stare before turning to Alex and Phaidra who were still clearly rattled. â??[b]Whatâ??s wrong?[/b]â? She asked them gently. Alex looked at Phaidra who nodded and then let go before answering Christine. â??[b]We ran into a vampire using what looked like a regular gun.[/b]â? Alex paused to take a deep breath before continuing. â??[b]He killed a reaper.[/b]â? â??[b]With the gun?[/b]â? Christine pressed. Alex nodded. Nathan snorted. â??[b]Thatâ??s ridiculous.[/b]â? â??[b]No itâ??s not![/b]â? Phaidra exclaimed. â??[b]Yes it is.[/b]â? â??[b]No, itâ??s [i]NOT![/i][/b]â? She repeated forcefully. â??[b]If they can make those blades we canâ??t phase through, whatâ??s to stop them from making bullets from the same material?[/b]â? Phaidra took a deep breath and held her arms against her chest tightly as she fought the urge to shake. â??[b]You donâ??t understand,[/b]â? she continued softly. â??[b]Iâ?¦ I saw the hole the bullet made in his head. Iâ?¦ I felt him die.[/b]â? She shivered and looked away. â??[b]Escalation, Nathan.[/b]â? Christine said firmly. â??[b]We canâ??t ignore this.[/b]â? The siblings stared at each other for a long moment before an admonishing noise interrupted the silence. Startled, Phaidra looked up at Victor who was shaking his head slightly at Nathan. â??[b]Tso insensitive.[/b]â? He chided. He took one step towards Phaidra and then stopped, glancing over at Isen who was fixing him with a glare. â??[b]Fine.[/b]â? Nathan turned to Alex. â??[b]What does this guy look like?[/b]â? Alex told him and then started to explain how the vampiresâ?? aura was difficult to locate but Nathan brushed it off with a wave and a curt â??Iâ??ll deal with itâ?? before he whirled and took off. Phaidra stared at the spot incredulously for a moment before taking a seat with a sigh. â??[b]So, anything else I missed?[/b]â? Gavrie asked. â??[b]Yes.[/b]â? Karl spoke up before either Phaidra or Alex could say a word. [/font]
  3. [font="Tahoma"][center][b]In the City [/b][/center] â??[b]Donâ??t you need to be leaving soon?[/b]â? Sarvel hopped up onto the desk and leaned over to look at the screen. â??[b]Unless your meeting is another day.[/b]â? She sat down and looked up at Phaidra. â??[b]No, itâ??s today.[/b]â? The mage replied. She continued typing without taking her eyes from the screen of the laptop. â??[b]Iâ??m making a copy of the changes for my editor right now.[/b]â? A short time later it was done and she retrieved the disk from the laptop, making sure to carefully label it before tucking it into a case and then into her pocket. Then she shut it down and closed it before standing up. â??[b]Are you sure you donâ??t want to come along? Itâ??s a nice day out.[/b]â? â??[b]Quite sure.[/b]â? Sarvel assured her. â??[b]I plan on spending some time in the forest. Youâ??re likely to be back long before I am.[/b]â? Phaidra smiled. â??[b]Alright, Iâ??ll see you later then.[/b]â? She was halfway out the door when she remembered to grab a sweater. Phaidra didnâ??t need it but it would look odd if she didnâ??t have one. It only took a moment to put it on and then she was off. The crisp autumn air, in spite of the haze from pollution, was rather pleasant and the larger city in the distance seemed to shimmer in the air from the heat rising up. If it were a little clearer, it would have been perfect for taking a picture. Maybe sheâ??d take a moment to look into those cameras that humans were so fond of using once her meeting was done. Less than a mile out from the city proper her cell phone gave off a chime. She pulled it out and took a look. It was a call from Alex. Phaidra answered it. â??[b]Hi Alex. Whatâ??s up?[/b]â? â??[b]Hi Phaidra. Not much. I was wondering if I could come over for a bit. I wanted to ask you some questions about shielding.[/b]â? â??[b]Iâ??m actually on my way to the city for a meeting with my publisher.[/b]â? She told him. â??[b]I could stop by when Iâ??m done.[/b]â? â??[b]The one you mentioned before?[/b]â? He asked. She murmured that it was. â??[b]Would you care if I meet you there when youâ??re done instead?[/b]â? â??[b]Uh, sure, if you want to. It shouldnâ??t be longer than an hour.[/b]â? â??[b]Cool, see you then.[/b]â? Phaidra closed the phone and put it back in her pocket. Once she was a block from the office where her publisher was located she landed on the sidewalk. If all went well this would be the last meeting required to finalize things for publishing the newest cookbook. She smiled at the thought as she walked towards the building.[/font]
  4. Hey Aaryanna. No list is complete without a cute little furball.

  5. Hello there Des. *gives you cookies*

  6. Are you always watching because you are Ceiling Cat? XD

  7. It's a little late but welcome to OB, Sarah. ^_^

  8. The Indi-Cat is cute. XD

  9. I'm so slow at getting people on my friends list here. ^^

  10. You changed it to Lucia? This makes me giggle, a lot. XD

  11. [font="Tahoma"]No. I don't have a Wii. [/font]
  12. [font="Tahoma"]After months of not playing it, I got re-addicted to Animal Crossing: Wild World. [/font]
  13. [font="Tahoma"]I started to read back in this thread to see what I missed and part of me wishes I hadn't. o_O Anyway... at least it's nice and sunny out today? Also, these new emotes are really quite adorable. XD[/font]
  14. [font="Tahoma"]What a fun banner James. XD I spent the holiday with my parents. I really needed a break and quite enjoyed spending time with them. I also enjoyed getting to see my cat again. Poor George spent the whole time clinging to me. I guess he missed me as much as I've missed him. It made me sad that I couldn't bring him back with me. [/font]
  15. [font="Tahoma"]I hope we get more options soon. ^^ I don't really care for either one. For now I'm using basic since I don't really care for the orange of wet paint.[/font]
