HUMAN TARGET: FINDING THE PERFECT RING Written by Diane N. Tran, with Abri Isgrig
Junior gave a look of utter dismay, as he got off the phone with Old Man to confirm that the target was eliminated, watching his partner-in-crime and sworn brother lift the hand of a female corpse to examine a large ring upon her bloody finger.
"Sweet ice," said Harrison, as he pulled the expensive band off the woman's cold digit, cleaning the blood off with her sleeve, and admired it under the light.
It was an oval-cut sapphire of the deepest blue with fourteen petal-like diamonds surrounding it on a band of white gold. It was a work of art.

She walked on her blue carpet of the bedroom and sat down on her King-sized bed, she was a bit depressed that she was alone in her own house with nothing do to.

She looked around her room to see her dresser with a mirror, her armory which housed their room's TV and a closet where one expected to be filled with shows but homes boxes of collectable cards and trinkets she got at comic conventions and video game conventions as well.

Nobody knows exactly what drove the Ralimsizae to attack Aempis, one of the most powerful nations on Jhoutai, though there are many speculations.

Arizona Anthros"AH, morning, sometimes it feels like it comes too soon," says Carrie as she sits up in bed and yawns. "What the, am I sitting on something?" She reaches under herself and feels something furry, "feels like a sock, but why would I be sleeping with a sock under my eep!" As Carrie was saying this, she pulled on the sock to find that it was connected to her; she leaps out of bed and sees that it is not a sock but a fluffy white tail, she than notices that her arms are furry. She runs to a mirror and sees a white furred anthropomorphic fox girl, staring back at her with emerald green eyes; two fox ears are nestled in black hair.Arizona Anthros10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
