The Uncertain Future Ch. 19Buzz took Jessie's hand, and looped her arm through his. They started slowly back towards the house- not really saying much, but enjoying each others company all the same. They slipped quietly around the barn and faded into the crowd.
After some time, they found their way to the front porch of the main house, where Woody and Bo were still perched. Jessie rushed over and pulled herself up onto the railing to sit beside Bo. When Buzz finally caught up to them, Jessie took his hand in her's and turned to whisper excitedly into Bo's ear.
After a moment, Buzz's eyes found Woody's. He started slightly at the look on the sheriff's face. The most profound distrust clouded his brow, and his glare seemed to bore holes into Buzz's skin. They stared at each other for a few moments until Bo distracted Woody.
The couple moved away, but Buzz could still feel the sheriff's eyes watching him. He shivered slightly, and shook it off.
The sun was beginning to set, and the men began to gather up the firewo
Hatter's Point Of View Part24
It was a half-day's easy riding from the Kingdom of the Knight's to the Heart's Casino. Needless to say, Hatter and Charlie completed the journey in half that time. Hatter galloped Guinevere until the froth was flying from her mouth and the sweat turned her coat black.
Still, to Hatter, the journey seemed to take a lifetime.
Why am I running off to save her? The most apparent reason flowed into his mind. The ring. But, he knew that that wasn't the only reason. She's stubborn, and insistent, and loud, and... and... Those reasons didn't seem to matter. All he saw was her sweet face, her brown hair resting lightly on her shoulders, her piercing blue eyes, and her pale skin, gleaming in the sun.
He knew then that he would do whatever it took to keep her, and Wonderland, safe. Even, he thought, even if that means saving this Jack guy. He grimaced slightly at the thought of him, but then Alice's grateful face swam across his mind. He sighed, and spur
The Embers Left Behind ch. 4"What are you talking about?" His mother interrupted.
"My dear lady," Zutana turned towards her. "Surely, you cannot be ignorant that your own son is an Earthbender."
"So, it was you in the woods that day." Haru's eyes flashed.
"Please, do not turn him in!" The woman pleaded, approaching Zutana. "Please, he is all I have left."
"I do not intend to, madam." Zutana said, a light frost in her voice. "However, my silence comes with a price."
"What do you want?" The woman begged.
"I am bound for the city of Omashu." Zutana stated. "Only, I have neither the means, nor the direction to get there."
"Why don't you just have your Fire Nation buddies take you?" Haru jeered. Zutana's eyes flashed again, but she ignored him.
"There is a caravan leaving for Omashu within the hour." The old woman said.
"Thank you, kind lady." She bowed slightly. "Now, if you can tell me where this caravan may be found "
"Haru shall take you!" The woman exclaimed. She pushed him forward.
Haru grumbled a bi
The Embers Left Behind ch. 3Zutana spent most of the evening tossing and turning, unable to sleep. She finally dozed off about an hour before sunrise.
She was walking through the forest. She passed by the bed of fire lilies, and entered the clearing where she had seen Haru. But, he wasn't there.
She was looking for something, but it was constantly eluding her. She saw a figure disappear through the trees ahead of her. "Stop!" She shouted. She gave chase.
It was always just around the next tree, or disappearing into the next shadow. It seemed impossible to catch. She finally came to another, much smaller clearing. The trees formed a canopy overhead, making the lighting sparse and cool.
The figure stood in the middle of the clearing. He was no more than a shadow, a dark shape. He turned to face her.
His eyes were glowing like a blue sun in the dead of night. He put his hands together, and the glow spread outwards along his arms, down his legs, and up his spine to the top of his head to form an arrow that stopped
