Ranger's Apprentice: Book Three, Chapter 7 Emily looked down among the crowd of nobles as they danced to a slow, almost too quiet song. It was Hallows Eve, and she was itching to get out of the lady-in-waiting dress that Princess Cassandra had wanted to see her wear. Emily didn't say no--you never said no to a princess if you valued your reputation-or your life, at times.
The dress in itself was very pretty. It was purple with gold trim, and it had cuffs which allowed the sleeves to nearly touch the floor. Cassandra even gave her a tiara almost similar to her own, saying "Ladies in waiting wear crowns."
But something about the ball brought back memories for Emily. The couples dancing so....so gracefully, hearing the horses outside. She frowned, trying to put her finger on that memory. She touched her silver oak leaf and smiled lightly. Emily turned as she heard footsteps behind her, accompa
Black Butler: Chapter ThreeA few seconds later, he broke the kiss apart, leaving a semi-breathless Jasmine. She was scarlet, and Sebastian wondered if asking for her soul was too much to ask for. S
Jasmine stood up, smiling. "That was awesome." She said, breathlessly. She turned and sat in her desk chair. "Sebastian, please bring me something sweet. I'm not in the mood for salmon and mint salad."
Sebastian smiled, and bowed. "Would you like some tea, too, My Lady?" Jasmine looked up from a paper she had been studying.
Sebastian smiled and walked out of the room. When he was gone, Jasmine tried to turn her mind to the report one of her factories had sent her. Ever since she began to run Funtom, saying that "Ciel is twelve. He still has his youth ahead of him, I and eighteen. I don't have this youth anymore. I will be the head of Phantomhive and run Funtom. I can do it," the company seemed to be earning money rather than losing it. She sighed as she jotted a note in a notebook. Ok, she t
Black Butler: Chapter TwoJasmine got dressed quickly. It wouldn't do to keep Ciel waiting to eat, as breakfast was not served until all members of the family where seated at the table.
A few minutes later, she was walking down the hallway, past an old painting of her mom and dad. She smiled sadly as she stopped to look at it. "Wish you were here." She whispered, shaking her head to dispel tears from the back of her eyes. It wouldn't do, also, to have Ciel see her cry. She had to fake a smile-if only in the hopes to get him to smile.
Ciel looked up as she walked into the room. "You're late." He said, mildly.
"I know, Mother Dear!" Jasmine said sarcastically. "You can't expect me to be in time all the time."
"Actually, yes I-"
"Ciel!" Jasmine slammed her fork down on the table. She had tears forming in her eyes. "Enough! Please!" She stood up and ran out of the room, leaving that morning's breakfast-salmon and mint salad-untouched. Sebastian served Ciel more tea, then picked up her plate and fo
Hotch's New Girlfriend: PrologueEmily Everdeen was walking to her car. It was a cold winter night, and she only had on a thin coat. She had just finished shopping, and wanted to get home before a storm blew in.
It was, after all, winter, and snow storms are very common. She felt a tap on her shoulder and she turned around. A man was behind her, and he was holding a bag.
"You forgot this." He said.
Emily nodded. "Thanks."
"Let me walk you to your car."
"No, it's only over-"
Before she stopped talking, her head was slammed onto the hood of a nearby car, and she sank to the ground, unconscious. The man picked her up, and took her to his truck.
Jasmine Pollack smiled as she sat at her desk. Why was she smiling, you ask?
Her desk looked straight into Aaron Hotchner's office. And if you listened to Penelope Garcia, it's said that Jasmine had a crush on him. And, if you stayed to hear more, Garcia went on to say that Hotch was the same way around Jasmine.
If asked if they liked each other, Jasmine went a shad
Beer for My Horses: Chapter One"Another one bites the dust?" My side-kick, or apprentice, as Halt says, Billy Granton asks. I look at him, not laughing.
"That was a terrible joke." I say, pulling out my phone. He looks at me, then the phone.
"Your not making the call-"
"We need a profile on the guy whose doing this." I say dialing the number for Halt, my near-as-you-can-get-but-not-quite dad.
"He won't do it." Billy says. "He's been retired for 5 years." I look at him.
"Says the guy eating a hamburger at a crime scene. Yes, he will. I know he will."
I slip the phone up to my ear a try to find my blasted car keys that I put into my jacket.
"Long time no hear!" Halt says, and I instantly know he's in a good mood. A great time to ask for a favor.
"You've been following the case?" I ask.
"What are you talking about?" I hear the sound of a newspaper being shuffled and smile.
"I need a profile on the guy, but I can't get one to stick. I need help, Dad." I've called Halt dad plenty of times be
The Heir: Chapter 2When I woke up the next morning, Loki and Thor where lying next to me, their arms wrapped protectively around my shoulders. I smiled and sat up, slowly, not wanting to wake them. Loki stirred in his sleep, and I stopped, staying absolutely quiet. When he stopped moving, I got off the bed, my nightgown-that Loki had probably got me into- starting to fall to the floor. There was only one other person in my room, a maid, and I motioned for her to leave. As she left, I walked to my closet, trying to choose something to wear. I finally chose a blue dress, the one Loki bought for me. I froze as the door to my closet creaked open, and heard Loki's voice.
"For someone trying to be quiet, your very noisy." He said, chuckling.
I frowned. "And for someone who is supposed to be a good listener, your terrible." I tried, failing miserably. I heard laughter behind me. I turned to see my brothers leaning against each other, laughing. I slipped past them and into a small dressing room. As they tu
Black Butler: Prologue"Do you wish to sign a contract and sell your soul to a demon?" The demon asked the girl, smiling. It had been a long time since his last master had....Well, died. He was hungry for a new soul.
"Just make the contract and grant my wish!" The girl shouted. The demon smiled even wider.
"Yes, My Lady."
Jasmine Phantomhive sat up right, breathing heavily. That same nightmare. Always that nightmare.
She sighed as she slid off the bed, being wary about Sebastian. Walking over to her closet, she realized that she forgot her eye patch, which lay on the table next to her bed. She sighed again. Before she could go a step back, however, the door to her room created open, and Sebastian walked in, a small frown creasing his forehead.
"You need to stop trying to sneak around me." He said. He noticed where her gaze was, and he walked over to the table, and grabbed the eye patch. He gestured for her to sit down on the bed, which she did, and he gently picked up a pale blue b
Avengers/Ranger's Apprentice 2 Emily let her bow drop a little, but, to Fury's approval, never put the arrow back in her quiver. "Who are your friends?" She asked.
"My friends are Tony Stark-" Tony made a mock bow, "Bruce Banner-" Banner nodded, "and Agent Maria Hill." The agent wore a frown, and always had a hand on a sheath of some kind.
"I'm not gonna hurt him, you know." Emily said, smiling. She felt Tony's gaze on her, she looked at him. "Are you done staring?" She asked him.
"No. But-" Tony said as he walked around Emily. He imitated a fashion designer "I'm not liking the cloak. If you go into the trees, I cant see you. If you go into the wood, make a statement. If you want to fight, clash."
"Maybe," Emily said, glaring at him the best she could, "That's the point! If I go into the forest, I don't want you to see me."
"Sour Patch," Tony grumbled, "She's worse th
A Phantomhive Christmas DayAll characters/Settings used belong To FUNimation Entertainment. Emily belongs to me.
Ciel looked at me, a large frown covering his face. I could tell he was upset, but then again, he was always upset.
"Where are we going, Emily?!" He asked finally looking forward.
"I dunno." I answered. "All I know is that Sebastian has a surprise for us." He looked at me again, his good eye glaring at me. Our blue eyes locked. "Stop glaring at me." I snapped. "I swear-"
We heard running feet and I saw Mey-Rin running down the hallway, and behind her...
"Lady Elizabeth?" I exclaimed. "What a marvelous surprise! How long have you been here?"
Elizabeth looked at me. "Not long." She said. "I can make you so pretty!"
I allow her to led me to my room and pull out the blue dress that she bought for me. When she turned away, I quickly put it on, and she tied it. She slipped on the ring that she had also bought me. I thanked her. She smiled and walked out of the room, declaring: "
