She grabbed her phone from underneath herself, and checked the time. There's always a new story!Glad that you're liking it so far! The monster had grown more heinous, but Akali was not about to give in. Yang being so non-judgemental makes my heart melt.Also there is no shame in using a plush to draw comfort from.

They would return to the Kinkou’s three fundamental philosophies: the pure impartiality of Watching the Stars, the passage of judgment in Coursing the Sun, and the elimination of imbalance by Pruning the Tree. “No, of course not.” Faey frowned. The neophytes slouched away, a couple of them holding back tears. Fuck, she hadn’t been this bad since the day Adam had been arrested, but today she had so much more to lose. Night Blake." R's speed increased. "You think we're gonna get swamped? Akali is too reliably snagging kills when she comes into a fight with all her tools available.

She could do this all day. “Too little sleep and too much coffee at once,” Yang grumbled, “I’m gonna have a headache all day.” Blake started drinking her coffee a bit slower at that, and Yang groaned again, rubbing her temples in frustration. On this final night of the Spirit Blossom festival in Xuanain, Mayym and other senior Kinkou would see something vastly different on the black canvas of the sky: the circle of pale illumination partially covered by a darker shade, like someone had thrown a thick veil over it, as the mystic moon in the spirit realm swam before the silvery moon in the material realm. As she drifted off to sleep, she vowed to do better tomorrow. I am so sorry. You’re tired, I get it. The moment that she slumped onto her side and clutched Shroud to her chest, her eyes fluttered closed and she began to feel exhaustion overtaking her.

It was nice and soft, like she’d hoped, and she felt like melting into the forgiving mattress then and there. “I want to keep some food,” Akali said.

Every time that news came in about the rockslide getting cleared off, everyone was happy except for Yang. Yang had been left behind by so many people. Sometimes, Blake swore that her mouth had a mind of its own. After taking another sip she smiled up at Yang, who had taken to leaning against the bar. "We should get back. Of those who had survived Zed’s attack, many lost faith in the order and left the Kinkou. Wow Blake you’re so fucking gay. “She pulled us to safety.

Someone was leaning into the open hood, swearing loud enough that Blake could hear them clearly even a hundred feet away. WAIT I need to talk about how cute shroud is.

Apologetically, she said, “I’ll give my dinner plum to you.”. The woman who had been working on the truck was stunning. Flee!” Faey screamed. The masked figure calmly walked forward, drawing from his back a blade that glowed with a mesmerizing aura of arcane energy. “This is all your fault!”. Blake leaned into the hug, the warmth of Yang’s body slowly banishing the frigid wind that howled in Blake’s mind. Blake took a step forward when a shock of cold froze her midstep. “The southern valley?” Faey took her eyes off the practice target, lowering her bow. They did love to hear about her trip.

At least not for painting,” she added as she finished pouring her drink together, her hand steady as a rock. How?” asked Akali, brown eyes wide. “We should have it clear by next week,” the blue haired man named Neptune said, and his partner Sun nodded firmly. She was quite thirsty, though whether that was for some ice tea or for more time with Yang she couldn’t quite tell. She spent the next half hour going over the truck as thoroughly, and quickly, as she could. She had a trip to finish, and besides she barely knew Yang. Finding anywhere to stay in the mountains separating the kingdoms of Vale and Vacuo was a long shot unless you'd planned a route. The rider was a little girl, one hand gripping the boar’s silvery fur and the other swinging a rope over her head, round and round.

The Frost shinobi wasn't down yet, his hand clamped the smoking piercing wound on his side as he grunted. In a way, they were truly like siblings, for Akali’s mother spent much more time with Faey than with her own daughter. Shen was wrong about that. “Master Mayym, we know what we saw!” A child’s voice flowed into the hut, faint and distant, sounding like Taij. Yang laughed as she watched, soon joining in herself. The acolyte instructor sat idly to the side with a scroll on his lap, stifling a yawn. Probably because it was a nice night out, that always gets people in the mood to drive.” She looked over at Blake, who was fighting to stay awake. “You can put your bike in the garage. Aside from a few wisps of cloud, the sky sparkled with stars. People must have been close to her before, she spoke fondly about her home whenever it came up, but she wasn’t in contact with anyone from Vale outside of the townies. Blake swore to herself that she would never be one of them. Kennen glanced at Faey, who was trailing behind them, and shrugged. “You just need more practice,” Blake said and Yang nodded ruefully. The two climbed onto Blake’s bike, and as Blake fastened her helmet, Yang cleared her throat awkwardly. Like beanie baby big or slightly bigger ? I crane my head up and around from the wicker mat I’m lying prone on to stare right into the eyes of the vastaya kneeling over me.

One day, Hisso came to Faey during her meditative archery exercise. “Faey…” Akali tried to give her a pat on the arm.

While we've done our best to make the core functionality of this site accessible without javascript, it will work better with it enabled. “I can help,” Blake said softly, half hoping that Yang hadn’t heard. “Really made yourself at home, didn’t you?”, Blake shot upright, almost hurling herself off the bed, her ears flat against her head in alarm. Blake ran a hand through her hair and let out a sigh, then glanced at the clock. “Oh, it’s not that bad after a while,” Blake said with a shrug, though Yang didn’t seem convinced. “Don’t worry about it,” Blake protested, but Yang only shook her head firmly. “You don’t have to drive me back down. The vines responded by lifting them up to the knots on the tree trunks, making their climb swift and secure. Faey felt slightly guilty, but she turned away and ran up to Mayym. Somehow, in the presence of Faey, Akali’s mother always treated her own daughter like thin air. As she continued her search, some of the greenery parted for her, giving way to her nervous steps. “Busy place,” Blake said, toying with her glass. Akali’s no different. Her next attack has doubled range, deals bonus magic damage, and restores Energy. “Sorry, I...I didn’t mean to snap at you.”, Yang let out a relieved sigh and ran a hand through her beautiful golden hair. “Leftover turkey extravaganza,” she said as she placed it on the bar, sliding a fork across to Blake. “You run a bar, don’t you? Before Faey could comprehend what was happening, the valley came alive—large tree trunks twisted fiercely, entwining into a gargantuan entity. As Yang’s truck vanished in Blake’s mirror, she reflected that she was almost certainly going to lose tomorrow too. She had made a promise not to intrude on Faey’s attempt at scaring away the big bad warriors.

Been trying to get into painting but it’s not going well.”. “I didn’t break anything, at least,” Blake said and Yang laughed softly. The idea of letting someone else have that level of control made Blake’s stomach twist into a knot and her ears drooped. I would never lie to you.” Yang looked away, studying the compressed form of Shroud for a moment, then murmured, “If you want to leave-”, “No!” Blake almost shouted the word. Akali looked at the monster with an empty gaze, her hand clasping the small kunai pendant. About everything.”, Faey could not understand why she would say this. “Hey, can-can you get something from my bike?”. And Yang being so perceptive will start keeping a tabs. Akali sat up and brushed some leaves off her clothes. Weh’le is a phantom port, a hidden coastal village, protected by the mystical properties of Ionia. Even the trees let out audible sighs, waving their leaves and contorted branches, working with the neophytes in a cacophony of dread. Shen is going to take care of the source.”.
