Arrietty 5 Years Later Chpt. 1"You mean he's alive?" Arrietty blurted out.
Spiller shrugged his shoulders in a very blaze' way. He hadn't wanted to tell her this but it would hurt more lying to her. Besides, who was to stop her from finding him? Every summer since she had to leave her home, she "coincidentally" went over to the property. Spending several hours watching the open field as if waiting for him to come back. And now that it seemed that he was actually back, Spiller couldn't believe it himself. Spiller had to admit that he loved seeing her; this happy, but he wasn't so sure if he was happy about her reasons for being so cheerful. Maybe, he should have told her father first.
"That must mean that his surgery went well," Arrietty continued, starting to gather her borrowing things.
"You're going now?" Spiller blurted out helplessly.
Arrietty turned then and smiled, tightening the strap on her borrowing bag.
"Arrietty, he i
Small Comforts ~ GT"DAMN IT!" A violently, pounding, voice suddenly vibrated against the air around the small human and she jumped, squeaking in terror at the suddenness of Jason's aggressive anger. The ground beneath her rumbled furiously with each enraged impact his enormous feet took with the ground and into the house, the vibrations seeping into the pads of her own feet and rattling up her legs to send her entire body trembling violently.
"DAMI IT, DAMN IT, DAMN IT!!!" He hissed again, shaking Cameron's ribcage and spine with unintentional force and terrifying her into cowering behind an opposing table leg in the kitchen.
It had been three months that she had lived here now, lived here with one of THEM, the monstrous species of giants that overrun the defenseless humans and degraded them to mere pets (and rumored snacks). Though it hadn't been as terrifying as she first thought it would be to live with a breathing mountain, in fact, she actually found herself feeling rather fond and affectionate towa
GT: TherapyFear, rational or otherwise, was something one never truly wanted to face head on.
For twenty years, give or take, Carol Walding viewed conquering some certain fears as overrated; avoidance was just as commendable in her eyes.
So as she sat quietly in the large, solemn office, under the scrutinous gaze of the austere Colonel Jackson, she wondered what decisions in her life caused her to end up here.
"It's quite illogical, Carol." Colonel Jackson was a longtime friend of the family, possibly her father's best friend, but as he spoke with her that evening, his voice was leveled and professional; though he still had trouble concealing the underlining concern he held for her. "Your fear that is; it's irrational." He softly tapped the tip of his pen onto the desk and leaned onto his elbows; watching the girl carefully from across the table.
Carol slumped into her chair and sighed; she had been getting this conversation all week and she was growing ever tired of people telling her tha
Midnight Surprise (Hug a Giant Day)The crisp night wind made Julianna's curly black hair fly out from under her helmet as she rode her white motorized scooter at top speed on the giant-sized sidewalk. She wore a rose pink halter top with black capris and red tennis shoes. A euphoric grin was spread across her face and she practically bouncing in her seat as she neared her destination.
This is going to be so awesome!
Once Julianna reached the end of the street, she came to a stop at an enormous red-bricked house. She was definitely far from home, being on the giant side of the town. Around here, she only appeared to be around eight or nine inches tall. It was also an unusually late hour for someone to be wandering around, big or small. But she had a job to do, and she was determined to complete it at any cost.
After pulling her scooter up to the garage of the huge house, she swung her leg over the side to dismount it. She pushed the kickstand down to keep the vehicle from falling. Her helmet came off and was repla
In the beginning..."Ugh, No!!!" He stomped in frustration, the ground shaking beneath his shoes. He had done it again another group of kids gone their terrified shouts still echoing through the forest as they fled back to town. Granted, they had lasted a little longer than most others who had seen him; he at least managed to utter a hopeful 'hello' before they took off running.
But hey, wouldn't you freak out too if you saw a 40 foot tall ten year old?
"This is pointless." He groaned and sat down, leaning himself back against a sturdy elm tree. Above him was the sudden rustling of leaves and chattering of squirrels, but he paid them no heed. "Why did we have to move so close to a human city? I miss my old friends and I can't make new ones if all the kids I meet keep running aw-"
His eyes widened and he nearly jumped out of his skin as he felt a small weight fall onto his che
Jacklyn and the Beanstalk CH10
"Holy..." Jacklyn breathed, gazing at the sight before her. "And I thought the fountain was impressive."
Presently, she sat in Wyatt's hand, in a room similar to the one the fountain was in. This one, however, was empty except for a crackling orb of light floating at the level of Wyatt's shoulders.
"Just... how many of these things do you have in this place?" she asked, her eyes fixated on the orb.
He chuckled. "A few. It takes a lot of magic to keep clouds solid enough to build a castle on. Not to mention taking care of everything else we need up here. This one was meant as a fail-safe, if we needed to return to the surface for whatever reason. We used it to try to find more beans, but... That didn't happen, as you might've guessed." He noticed her staring up at him, her brow creased in sympathy. "Anyway," he said, clearing his throat. "We'll both need to have our hands on the orb for this to work. I'll activate it, and you focus on your farm."
"You can't just set me
I Was the First Chapter OneI was the first and maybe the only one to see the giant's boat that day. I stood on the beach like the friendless person I was now and let my mouth hang open when they crested the horizon. It wasn't a crowded beach, it never was because the island I lived on was so remote but I still wished that at least someone was there to confirm that I was the first to seem them approach. I wished someone would have been there with me. There were three of them on the small boat and I felt my toes dig into the white sand as the three unearthly individuals approached the shoreline, their eyes all settling on the tiny female who must have only looked a few inches tall to them. I looked at each of them and then turned my eyes from their 'small raft.'
As the boat came closer, I found that I simply could not turn away from the horrific and yet astounding visual impending. I had never seen anything like this in my short sixteen years of lif
Rainy Mood..."What's tha matter, little one?...."
The thunder-like rumble stirred her from her thoughts; cloudy thoughts, dark..and grey sad and heavy. Thunder almost seemed fitting for the gloomy storm that had taken up residence inside her chest. Well, it would have .had the thunder not been so warm.
It chased away the gloom for the briefest of seconds .allowing a faint flicker of sunlight to pierce through and grant her happiness .only for the heavy clouds to rush back in and darken her spirits once more as they shrouded her heart in a dark grey. She lifted a hand to dab at her kohl lined eyes, her long, flowing sleeves absorbing the raindrop tears from her dark cheeks before she risked lifting her violet gaze upwards towards the owner of the voice. Her master.
"N-Nothing .nothing at all, m-master ." She smiled though her choked tone gave it all away as she looked up into the face of the towering Faron. He was a giant fierce, proud and usually withou
Daddy's Little GirlStarted 1/31/10
It had been 7 years since that incident that everyone had blamed on the government. That incident that bred a new type of human being. And the new human being was being called a name from nothing more than fairy tales a giant.
Cassie was little but embarrassed of her situation in this 'new world.' It was all because over egotistical leaders of countries all around the world wanted some sort of gas to be tested right away. She stared at a photo on her bedside table in the corner of her room, her blue eyes falling to the friendly female smiling face in it. It was a photo of her mother in the hospital after she had Cassie. Her mother was lucky she never had to see this horrid new planet that was bred years later.
She stared down at the journal in her lap, her scribbling writing from when she was but a 10 year old to the beautiful curving letters of a 17 year old. She began this journal when her father started to change, all because of some explosion his lab had h
Arrietty 5 Years Later Chpt. 2Arrietty sprinted through the grass. Sho was back! After five long years, after worrying that his heart surgery had not ended well, he was alive! How had he changed? A boy could change in five years. Would he remember her? Would he care? She approached the property slowly, she was very close now.
And then, after pulling some grass blades aside, Arrietty spotted a very tall human bean. His hair was the same color as Sho's but now it hung over his eyes and around his neck. He was hunched over, but Arrietty couldn't tell for sure. Spiller was right. Sho, if this huge bean was truly Sho, was different. No longer did he look like a boy, he was seventeen after all. Arrietty was suddenly terrified and considered turning around.
"Arrietty?" a loud but low voice whispered out.
Arrietty raised her eyebrows in surprise. It was Sho! An
The Giant of Felrein CH1Chapter 1
"Welcome, Dara!" Leo said, embracing his niece. "How was your trip?"
"It was fine, thanks," Dara said. Leo was her late mother's elder sibling, although she saw only a fleeting resemblance, perhaps because her uncle wore the large, bushy mustache that was traditional to ringmasters of Alorian. He was a tall man, and of solid build. He stood roughly a head taller than his nineteen year old niece, and was finer dressed as well. Her plain white shirt, brown leather vest, green denim pants, and worn boots paled in comparison to his pristine white suit coat and polished black boots. Even his dark hair, its shade only a tad darker than hers, was slicked back and neatly trimmed, in contrast to her own plain hairdo consisting of a simple half-ponytail.
She supposed it made sense. The circus he ran was quite successful, from what she heard, while her and her mother had slightly less means. They were not poor exactly, but had never had much in the way of luxuries.
"Is this all y
New Grounds ~ Chapter OneCorinne scanned the forest trail that spread out before her. This was the area her father had used to carry her out to every weekend when she was a little girl. Its luscious trees, constantly blooming wildflowers, and calming stream had been a magical place for her to use her imagination.
Of course, that had been several long years ago, and her father was long since gone.
Being just nineteen years old, Corinne was able to take care of herself. She never stayed in one location for long, moving frequently throughout North America.
Now, she had rediscovered the woods next to her first home, and she took it all in with a single breath. Brushing her hand against the rough bark of an old oak tree, she recalled with a smile the time her father had told her that his great grandfather had planted that very same tree.
Shifting her backpack around, she stretched up to the first low-hanging limb she could reach and proceeded to lift herself upward. Eventually, she made it to the top, stopping to t
Don't Be Afraid GT"Don't be afraid," the giant's voice rumbled from above.
I was in so much trouble... I had ventured carelessly into a giant's territory- a large open field, filled with wildflowers. Of course, my safe haven happened to be a hell hole.
I whimpered helplessly as the warm flesh around me tightened.
"Shhhhh," he murmured softly, "Shhhhh..."
Despite his gentle words, I was still terrified. Was this giant planning on devouring me? Or planning to keep mr captive? These thoughts raced through my petrified mind- the overlapping thoughts made my stomach churn with absolute fear.
He had me trapped in his cupped hands. I had not even seen his face- I only had heard his deep voice, and felt his warm sweaty skin, and smelled his wine scented breath.
I was unarmed, wearing only my kitchen clothes... I felt exposed and utterly helpless in the giant's hands... The skin beneath my fingers was rough, I felt hundreds of callouses and a few scars as I attempted to stretch my weak arms.
"Don't be afraid,
College Gift~ GT(PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION FIRST~~~ thanks ^^)
" .One down fifty six more to go " Jason sighed heavily as he set down the electrical engineering textbook and slumped back into his desk's chair. His notepad now held a full-scale circuit unit for a high end voltage electrical switch, hooked up to several others. It mazed around his page and he finished it off with a few labels here and there. He had been reluctantly working on that for the past hour and a half, and just when his spirits raised at its completion, they came crashing back down as he glanced over the assigned work.
"Uuugh .ill never get this done in time!" He couldn't help burying his face in his hands and moan in exhaustion. "Its too much!" he complained to his empty living room. Luckily there was enough room for a work desk right beside a bookcase when he first moved in, otherwise he would be in his bedroom or on the couch, and he was easily distracted. The large TV sat behind him on a far off wall and th
FirePalmThis is one of my first GT stories- it's OK- I think it has potential but we'll see. SO- Firepalm- what is that? It's the ability to shoot fire from her palms of course! the only issue is the main character, Esmeral has this ability, but because she is so young, she has not had time to control her power.... Now, Firepalm is a condition passed on from generation to generation, and only a few percent of people are born with it.
Anyway, Esmeral soon finds herself trapped in a world of Giants- a world where humans are extremely rare and are considered prized pets only the wealthy can afford. i don't want to spoil anymore- hope you enjoy it!
"Esmeral! Dear, you left the fire extinguisher in the trunk!"
I jumped and turned around. My tiny five-foot tall grandmother was shuffling towards the house with her little feet with her giant red purse in her jittering hands.
"Oh! Sorry!" I gasped. I rushed over to the car and carefully opened the trunk. I stared sadly at the red cy
I Was the First Chapter 3"Well do something!" the scarier giant shouted to the one behind me. "How else are we going to know if she can talk?!"
"I I can't," the kinder one said in an almost pitying voice. "I can't just grab her. She's not some animal."
"She she is a human! They are practically the same as most rodents!" he shouted, dumbfounded. How could these giants think about humans that way? I was shocked to realize that they probably both believed these horrible ideas. I was the same as them, being only considerably smaller. We both wore clothes, we both could articulate our thoughts and feelings, I should just explain all of this to them but I was so scared at the time! I dared to peak my eyes out from under my arms and saw the one giant's hand palm down in the sand only a few feet away from my body now.
I was so sure that that hand was going to grab me. What would happen to me then?
Arrietty 5 Years Later Chpt. 4Later that night, as Sho lay in the same bed when he first met Arrietty he reached under his shirt and pulled out a delicate silver chain. At the end of the chain was a small hair clip, which Arrietty had given to him five years ago, 'for luck' she called it for his then upcoming operation. When Sho found out that he was going to survive the heart surgery he promised himself that he would never lose that hair clip. Arrietty had given him the will to live, and the luck to survive. She was more to him than she would ever come to understand, of that, Sho was sure but he wanted to at least let her know just what a large role she played in his life the past five years.
Holding the hair clip in his massive fingers, he thought about Arrietty and just how beautiful she was. Everything Sho did after the operation was for her. Before she left she wished him to have the 'best life ever' and Sho did everything in his power to become
