She looked around trying to find who spoke but she saw nothing but dim light and lots of trees.
"Don't be scared," The voice said.
"He's safe."
"W-who are you?" Tanya asked with a shaky voice.
As soon as the question left her lips, the forest was illuminated in light, brilliant bright light.
Tanya could only gasp in shock. -@stellageorge

"The nightmare hunter"

There have always been nightmare hunters but none as bold and powerful as Steve, who now goes to his castle to regain his strength and heal his wounds, while another night approaches with more challenges and enemies that will want to end in any way and forever. Because his fame has spread to the corners of that world of beasts and hunters, to such an extent that many nightmares are terrified to know that Steve is the rival to defeat.- @cajiro

“You might as well finish everything”. Tess said in a rude way.
“Could you please mind your business”. Bri said while placing another crab cake in her mouth.
“I’m surprised you haven’t blamed me yet”. Tess said while she rolled her eyes.
“I thought we weren’t talking to each....”. Bri tried to say before she started choking on a crab cake.
“Oh my God Bri you’re choking!!. Should I get help? Oh right we’re trapped and there’s no water nearby”. Tess was panicking at this point.- @madamnaomi

“Tell me, what do you see?”
A man’s voice from behind disturbed his moment of silence and appreciation.
“I see agony in the distorted triangular faces. But when I tilt my head to the right, they’re smiling. When I tilt to the left, I see stars in their eyes, like they’re rejoicing in a success,” he said without looking at whoever spoke to him. "- @idlemind

Dunes

While Azalea pondered about how the dunes came to be and why they are there. Her people were only bothered about how to make a living after the great plague that hit their tribe during the old generation of hundreds of years ago. The elders of the land began transitioning beyond. One after the other they left. The keeper transitioned before he could even transfer the secrets of the land to his successor. This meant that the history, essence and knowledge of the zordans died with him. - @kei2

Invasion

They stopped near the entrance. Frank got out, and then the others. They had to force a door, already half shattered by the years. They walked through a passage that led them to a sort of stone passageway that looked like a dead end. At the end of the passageway, Frank put his hands on the wall and, to everyone's surprise, a sort of rock gate opened, giving access to a very large gallery. They saw nothing special there, only a golden amphora lying on the stone floor. - @amaponian

'I heard she thought she was human', she heard, but she could not put the words together so they made any sense at all. Even this moment would disappear in minutes, superseded by new code. 'She had an affair with the CEO's son and he wasn't told what she was.' She heard a smirk, a guffaw. 'After his wife died she thought she'd adopt the children with him. His old man was furious when he found out. Lucky we didn't get sued.' - @riverflows
