Tessa and Leon: Getting Out of a Situation (Feb.)Tessa and Leon: Getting Out of a Situation (plus a little extra)
Tessa Marrks had a very normal life. She thought to herself as she was walking out of drama class, that it was perfect. She walked through her high school's halls in a dream-like daze, going through all of the perfect details in her life. Her parents were finally getting back together, and it looked like they were staying that way for good; she had her choice of whatever college she wanted to attend, with multiple scholarships; and, what she considered one of the best things, she had recently started dating Drake Thorn, her biggest crush. Their relationship seemed to be going great. They both wanted the same things, at the same pace, and they had everything in common. Life was perfect. Well, almost.
Recently, Leon, the boy in Tessa's drama class, had made it clear that he liked her. Tessa had tried every move she knew to let him down easily, but that boy would not take a hint, no matter how obvious it was. She opened her
The Chronicles of Narnia: After the Final JourneyAfter the Final Journey- the events that took place to Edmund and Lucy after they left Narnia for the last time 1/10/12-2/2/12
Lucy Pevensie was many things. Her school teachers said that she was a very intelligent girl, and her friends said that she was kind, and fun; but her siblings knew that she was much more than she appeared. She was fierce, brave as a lioness, very clever and quick-witted, a queen, worthy of her title. Legends of queen Lucy the Valiant would be told to Narnian children for millennia, passed down like heirlooms until the starts rained down from the Heavens.
But as Lucy sat down on her bed in her aunt and uncle's house, pulling her satchel onto her lap, she didn't feel very valiant. She miserably pulled a small looking glass out of her bag. It was slightly larger than her hand, circular in shape, and decorated with pictures of Narnians made with pieces of emeralds, rubies, diamonds, sapphires, citrines, topazes, and every other gemstone you could imag

"Come with me?" he asked, desperation showing in his clear blue eyes. Pocahontas turned to look at her father.
"You must choose your own path," Powhatan told his daughter with a warm and steady gaze. Pocahontas looked at her people, then at the settlers. Finally, her eyes came back to John Smith.
"I'm needed here," she said, tears forming in her eyes.
"Then," John said, his voice wavering, "I'll stay with you."
"No! You have to go back!" Pocahontas cried.
"But I can't leave you," John said, feeling pain worse than any gunshot.
"You might not have to," Lon said, coming forward. "I know a little about bullet wounds, as do some of the men. I'm sure with our knowledge, and their healer," he nodded to Kekata, "we could probably fix you up." Pocahontas looked around hopefully. Some settlers were nodding their heads and Kekata was deep in thought, already thinking of remedies. "What do you say?"
"Well, there's no question to it, if you really can heal me
Haunted NightsThrough the long and sleepless night
The winds never cease to howl
And though I give them all my fright
They keep on coming, coming now.
Through the curtain of the linen
Faces keep on drawing near
I'm screaming on the carpet now
Showing them all of my fear.
Angels of death surrounding me
And leave me shaking in their wake
Oh! If only this were a dream
And only if I- could wake.
The orange moon setting
Announces their egress
They leave my sanity
A scuttled mess.
I know each night
That they will leave
But they abandon me frozen
And I start to heave.
I crawl into the covers
And wait out the night
My murdered past lovers
Get their revenge all right.
(I know that this torment is done for tonight
But the hauntings repeat
And bring back my fright
For this happens each and every night.)
