The story of the groom on the coast

I saw how it took the form of a beautiful woman, her hair was straight and shiny. The rest of her body also glowed and her luminescent costume looked like a dress made of waves and foam. Her face came up to my uncle's forehead and bestowed a kiss, then she slid back as she slowly faded [email protected]

The Captain, Esme and the Umibozu

But suddenly the water swirled and rose, the ship moving with it. As if on queue, summoned by Esme's pleading for it's life, the beast moved through the water to reveal itself, a gargantuan and magnificent miracle birthed from tragedy to save a dying ocean. Iridescent scales laced it's sea black flesh, twinkling in the afternoon sunshine. Great birds whirled in it's wake, albatrosses and eagles, gannetts and puffins, pelagic birds that were rarely seen anymore due to the overfishing that had turned the world's waters into wastelands.- @riverflows

False identity

Ella tried alerting her boys but it failed, it looked like the network was jammed with a device. She quickly left the camera room to alert her boys and before she got down, havoc had struck. The majority of her boys had been disarmed and locked in a room.

Some guys robbed the hotel and spirited away some artifacts worth millions of dollars.- @george-dee

On the podium, Carla's head bent low to accept her medal, but she remained bowing for a little longer. Mita was perplexed and blurted out.
"Why are you angry after winning?"
Carla pursed her lips.
"Because I couldn't beat your record."
Mita raised her brows and scoffed.- @diebitch

Once the floats started to come out one after the other, it was just mayhem after mayhem. Some floats became deflated, some had mechanical issues, some kept spilling green goo onto audience. Everyone’s float had issues asides the float made by the cheerleaders. This raised the suspicion of the other contestants.- @madamnaomi

Flames of love

The women were too proud to actually listen to what the other had to say and despite the fact that I've tried to set them up several times, it all fails. I have even tried to let go of Dami so that I can make my mother happy but I just can't. The flames of love dancing inside of me can only be quenched by Dami and no one else. He makes falling in love so easy and I've never felt better all my life.- @tozill
