Fate's Destiny Chapter 2: New Arrivals

Palluck sent a glance as his brother left, turning his full attention back toward his unborn sister. "So... last summer we went on this journey, and came in sight of this large thing of water called a lake. There were other creatures swimming and playing in it, and it looked so much fun, but Father said to stay away. He said that Namicans couldn't swim very well, and that the creatures there were nice, but too rough for us. I'm not sure why we stopped our journey there and came back, but the walk was pretty fun. I didn't know Mother could whistle like that."

His sister stretched a paw toward the membrane as if reaching for him. In mild surprise, Palluck extended his own paw, touching hers.

"I've been watching you for a few weeks now, and I'm still not sure what kind of Namican you'll be. You seem to listen well, better than Maldore. Don't get me wrong, he's a nice older brother, but can be a bit rough around the edges at times. Hello..."

Palluck suddenly felt wetness on his extended paw. Pulling back, he saw that his sister had made a slight cut in the membrane with her tiny claw, still scratching. The young Namican suddenly felt his heart skip a beat, and lodge in his throat. He tried to stammer, but his tongue twisted.

His sister was coming!

Palluck could only stare in fascination as his sister kicked both footpaws, claws lashing out. Several more slashes penetrated the outer membrane, fluid trickling out exponentially. She extended all limbs in every direction, the thin fissures widening in response.

Maldore squinted. At first he though his eyes were seeing the figure because he wanted to see something, but he quickly realized that this one moved as if injured. The Namican started down the hill slowly at first, picking in the pace up to a run as he realized the figure coming toward him through the mists was stumbling heavily. He called out.

"You okay? I'm coming!"

The figure was a male Namican a few seasons older than him. Some blood trickled down one side of his head, his eyes unfocused. Every time he fell down to one knee, he just got back up, pushing forward. Maldore could here him mumbling unintelligible statements, the only clear word, "Gole."

"I'm here, what's wrong?"

The strange Namican finally stopped, peering closely at Maldore. After a long moment, he stumbled once more, unable to go another step.

"Help... Gole."

"What is Go-ley?"

The Namican tapped his paw against Maldore's chest. "You. Help. Head hurts."

Maldore gave a quick nod, motioning. "The den's this way. I got you, just one step at a time. Not too fast!"

The young Namican wasn't sure later how to describe the sensation, but it quickly overpowered him as he aided the injured figure into the den, only to see Palluck and a very sopping wet newborn female staring right at him.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
