Clouds Over Cogham: Part One

Mer’s frantic pleading is swallowed by the lava along with the rocks that still fall from the ceiling. The heat from the volcano dries his tears to his cheeks, yet still isn’t warm enough to soothe the tenseness in his aching arms. His eyes are sore from the saltstains and heatwaves. His breathing is shallow and plagued with ash.

"The Flight of the Court Dancer" by drifbilim
The roar of those calling for her blood as she fled through the castle gates was deafening. She ran blindly through the Castletown, hiking up her skirts and hoping to Lord Kass that there would be no town guard to bar her way. It felt like not very long at all before her breath would not come, before she was standing alone and quiet on the dirt road path she’d came from. She couldn’t stop the shake of her shoulders, and the humiliation and terror burning in her ears. Her mother, much less Lord Kass, would not be pleased with her failure. She had bought their army precious time to march across Meridell fields unchecked, but how long would it take for Meridell to undone all of that? How long until her dance’s work was undone? A fornight? Perhaps even less? She shook her head as she lumbered off the path, towards the forest. No, the Darigan army was strong. Meridell stood not a chance against them with Lord Kass at the helm, along with her mother. They would succeed. They had to. She stared up at the tiny splotch of land floating in the distance, the Darigan army looked smaller than Petpetpets as they surged towards Meridell castle, bigger than them all, bigger than the Citadel. She turned away, ignoring the shudder of her heart and the dread in her bones as she marched into the dark forest.

The Tale of the Missing Tail
Alshena the Plushie Aisha held back tears as the other Neopets pointed and laughed at her. They were ridiculing her for a feature (or lack thereof) that she couldn't help. The poor little kitty had been born without a tail.

A Field Trip with the Grooming Parlour Shopkeeper
Hello again! I’m Kuszemi, and I’m here today in Neopia Central to pick up the Grooming Parlour Shopkeeper. We’ve been acquainted for quite some time now, and she’s been doing a roaring business, so I suggested that she expand into some of the other markets, such as Krawk Island, maybe. (coughs shiftily)
