Target One chapter 11Patchwork woke up, feeling a bit cold. He soon realized that it was because Essence had left him, and was licking Target’s ear, as he was just barely awake. Patchwork was surprised to see the bandages around her neck, and not over her eyes like normal. She heard him get up, and smiled.
“Good morning.” She said softly, looking at him. Target got up, and walked back away from Essence. She flapped her wings once or twice. Patchwork stretched, and got up. Taiyo opened her eyes, and moved a bit, but didn’t want to risk hurting herself, so just stayed where she was. Bell cast a spell of some sort, making her paws glow blue, and then back to normal again. She looked at the awakening group.
“Oi.” Bell said, as if she had done nothing.
“Hi.” Target replied, watching Essence, who smiled. He didn’t like getting treated like a kitten, and Essence seemed to like treating him as one.
“Where are we off to?” Essence asked placidly. Bell
Target One chapter 10Target followed Bell, as did everyone else, and they walked through town a while, several older creatures coming up, recognizing Bell. They left the town after a few hours, and continued on, traveling towards a swamp, filled with rushes lily pads, and a couple submerged trees. Essence shuddered when she saw it, and Bell asked her why.
“Th-this…is it…” Essence said, looking at her with a terrified face. Bell nodded.
“You think you can handle it?” Bell asked.
“Y-yeah…” Essence padded over to a sandy patch, and wiped away several layers of the stuff, revealing a large piece of old, bloodstained concrete, with a white line in the middle. She looked at it, recalling memories.
“What’s the matter?” Target asked, looking down at what she was looking at. “And what’s that?”
“That, would be a human road.” Essence said in a faraway tone.
“Oh, cool! What’s the deal though?”
Target One chapter 9Essence bounded through the forest, looking for prey when she stopped. She had to make sure the chain was okay, otherwise, she’d be sent back. She didn’t want that. She had been an outcast spirit. No spirit wanted to talk to a cat that had such a boring death. All the other spirits would brag, and Essence was pretty sure that they lied.
“I got beaten to death!” One would say proudly.
“Oh, well that’s too bad.” Another would say. “I jumped off a cliff, and got devoured by demons in mid-air!” Essence found that a death had to be interesting. There were the higher deaths, or more respected, like being eaten by a dragon or getting pushed off the edge of a volcano, and then there were the lower deaths, which would be getting run over, dying of old age, and things like that. Essence moved on, thinking half into the past, and at the same time looking for prey, but so far, nothing was found.
Weird… She thought. There would have to be
Target One chapter 8They made their way out. Target was aware the entire time of a ton of eyes watching them, and when they went about ten steps out of the city, people cheered. Then Target realized something. They had been trapped in this one place for years! Why else would they be cheering like that? Target smiled. He felt happy. As they walked out further, Essence went back into the back, and Bell was in lead. They continued on until nightfall, where they saw a forest ahead and sheltered. When it became morning, they went off again, and hoped they’d see a city, or at least a town, but didn’t. They walked through the woods, then a field, and then got to a large mountain. “Really!?” Target yelled, outraged. “I hate mountains!”
“Calm down.” Taiyo told him. “You’ll survive.” Target didn’t find that very helpful. They started climbing until it became dark, and rested at some cliff. Patchwork and Essence didn’t race this time. They
Target One chapter 7Bell slowed down. She didn’t know this place, or what it held. Target rushed past though, and suddenly, a cry was heard from him. The others couldn’t see what actually happened, but saw afterwards. A large steel spike was in Target’s chest, who, meanwhile, was dangling in the sky. The spikes were there for a few seconds, and then disappeared into the ground, Target lying there, with a bleeding stomach. Taiyo instantly went to his side.
“Are you okay!?” She asked anxiously, gathering mud like her mother had taught her, and dragging Target away from where the spikes had popped out.
“No, I’m obviously not okay.” Target said, looking at her.
“Well, I realize that!” Taiyo said. “I meant, do you hurt or not?”
“Well. No, actually.” Target said. He sighed. “Oh, I guess that means I’m okay then, huh?” He looked relived.
“You don’t know much about injuries, do you?” Taiyo asked
Target One chapter 6They were dazzled by the sight. This was a huge city! The walls were pure marble, and studded with rubies and emeralds, and all kinds of other gems. It was shocking though, because as the looked at the inhabitants, they found that the city was made of cats, and spirits! They couldn’t believe that they could see them. They asked someone about the place they were in.
“Oh, this is the city of Erein, the most beautiful in the Faric province, and probably in any!”
“So, why can we see spirits here?” Taiyo said.
“Oh. It would be the reflections of the gemstones. These gemstones are powered to see the truth. Many spirits were cast out of their realm, so they stayed here. Our founding fathers decided they wanted to see the truth. Taiyo looked at the others and was shocked. She could see Patchwork how he was before! This was insane! The cat saw her face, and was happy. “Your friend was changed, I’m guessing?” He said.
Target One chapter 5Taiyo woke up, and lit herself. “Hey, guys.” She whispered, nudging Target. He twitched, but did nothing more. She went over to Pachwork, and did the same, receiving no response. She felt for their heartbeats, and was glad to hear them. She sat and waited, hoping for them to wake up soon, when she heard someone coming. A cat came in; white a snow, with eyes black as night and pupils a bright red. A deep gash was crossing over his left eye, and another across his underbelly.
“Hello.” He said in a voice that sounded cold.
“H…hi...” Taiyo said, suppressing her fear.
“Do not be afraid.” The cat said, sitting down next to Target’s seemingly lifeless body. Taiyo shut her light instantly. How can I not be afraid!? I know who this is, and he knows I do! She thought. She remembered tales of this cat. In the adventure that they had heard about, the silver cat, named Silverleaf, fought off this cat. His name was said to be Syrin, and he
Target One chapter 4When they woke up, they decided to go look around.
“I need to go find some thread.” Patchwork said, still fussing over his scratch.
“Hah, I guess that’s a downside to being a stuffed animal.” Target said laughing. They looked around, and some people were out, but most were still in their houses. They went up to a stand, where Patchwork found a cat with a bunch of needlework supplies.
“Hello there.” The man said, looking only at Taiyo and Target.
“Oh, hi.” Target said, knowing that Patchwork wasn’t going to talk.
“You need something to repair that stuffed animal you have?” The cat asked.
“Oh, he’s real. But he does want to repair himself.”
The cat laughed. “You children. Anyways, what do you need?” Patchwork was unhappy. He got up and started talking, which shocked the shop owner.
“I’d really like thread for every color I have patchwise. And maybe some materials for making p
Target One chapter 3When morning came, the three went off, thanking Inuit for letting them stay.
Taiyo lit herself up.
“So, how can you see?” Taiyo asked, poking patchwork’s button eyes.
“Well, it’s not very easy if you’re blocking my sight.” Patchwork replied annoyedly.
“I don’t actually know…” Patchwork said, pondering for a moment.
Target found something that caught his eye.
“Hey, look at that!” He said to the others.
“What is it?” They asked simultaneously, looking around.
“This.” Target picked up a small red rock.
“It’s a rock.” Patchwork said, unamused.
“It’s awfully cool though.” Target said, fascinated.
“Whoa! Target, interested in something stupid?” Taiyo giggled. “That’s new!”
“It’s not stupid!” Target said.
“It’s a rock.”

My friends used to call William "Ironman" because the first time we kissed he got a nosebleed and the taste of his blood haunted me for a long time after it. We'd only been twelve years old and apparently the anxiety spiked his blood pressure to the point of combustion... I remember that when we were forced to take sex ed a few years later we were divided into separate classes for boys and girls, in case a diagram of an ovary was too risqué and we became animalistic and started clawing at each other in our seats, but nonetheless when our teacher Ms Jacobs had explained to us what an erection was in my mind all I could picture was the blood rushing to his nose and then the slash of cranberry across my blouse.
With the idea planted in his mind it didn't take long for William's hands to start wandering, but the image persisted. Every time I thought about just letting it happen I wondered what would happen if he got too excite
