Dog Tags was a short novel, barely more than 100 pages long. In the two weeks from when John gave it to her and when they docked at TAU 14, Meg had read it a dozen times. She kept the book rolled up in her back pocket and carried it everywhere so she could read it whenever she had a spare moment. She had hoped to learn more about her dad, but the book was more of a romance novel than a biography.
The book takes place mostly before Earth was destroyed, back when Korso was in the military. He fell in love with a woman named Charlie Galins. They couldn't spend much time together...
Being in space, it was a constant night, which threw Meg off. Montressor orbited near the sun and there was night and day. Meg kept a clock in her quarters that was set to Montressor time and also displayed the date so Meg would be able to keep track of the days.
The first night on the Legacy, Meg had trouble sleeping. She wasn't sure why, but nonetheless she found herself wandering the ship's deck at eleven o'clock p.m., Montressor time. She walked over to the edge of the ship and peered out at the vast blanket of stars around her. The airlocked dome around the ship truly was...
"Will someone please tell me what's going on?" the blonde, whom Jasmine learned was named Rapunzel, demanded.
Jasmine would have liked some answers, as well. There was so much about this time that she didn't know. She learned the contraption they were in was called a car and was like a large horseless chariot. Rapunzel suddenly made a sharp turn off the road. Jasmine fell against the man called Rick O'Connell. He winced and Jasmine realized he was bleeding.
It only took the professor a few days to find a crew he trusted for the journey. However, after speaking with the captain and going over details of the trip, it was determined the trip could take at least six months- especially since they had to stop at TAU 14 to get Cale and, according to the captain, TAU 14 was out of the way and would add a few extra days to the journey. The professor couldn't leave his work that long. In the end, the professor made the decision to stay on Montressor and, instead, made it clear that Jim would take the lead of the mission. Jane also opted to stay on...
Months ticked by, eventually turning into a whole year. Dimitri seemed to take their Father’s absence the hardest, maintaining every day that he was going to go out and help fight in the war, and every day was told by his Mother that that wasn’t going to happen. Whenever Belle went outside, though, on a good day, she would find him practising his swordplay with wooden fences and the farm geese.
Anya became withdrawn and silent, becoming the dutiful daughter and doing everything she was told without question or argument. Jim didn’t seem to notice much difference, but then,...
“Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead...”
Alice, Ariel, Aurora, Audrey, Anna and Anastasia are the “A Club” – the popular girls of Arandell High. But each of them has a secret they’d rather not tell, a secret about how each of them came be where they are now.
No one must know, not even their closest friends and family.
And then the messages begin, messages threatening to reveal their secrets to the entire school in return for payment for their silence. Each is signed with the letter “A” implying it is someone in their...
The next morning, Elsa woke feeling refreshed and a lot better than she had the day before. Shrek and Donkey were already awake, and attempting to put the fire out. She stifled a giggle as Shrek accidently burned his foot, and then Donkey found a rather unconventional but also extremely effective way of putting the fire out by peeing on it.
“Good morning, gentlemen,” she smiled.
Donkey quickly straightened up and cleared his throat. “Good mornin’, Princess!”
“Quick!” Arthur Rolfe seized his little sister’s hand and dragged her behind the nearest tree. Kayley giggled and then quietened with a finger to her lips as Arthur snuck a peek around the tree trunk. No one was in sight. Kayley started giggling again. “Shh!” Arthur hushed her, motioning with his hand. His little sister didn’t seem to understand the seriousness of their mission, which was to make it back to base before...
“Tag, you’re it!”
“Aw!” Arthur groaned as he looked up at his older sister. Kayley immediately squealed and ran off into...
