The Stone Of Gnash - Chapter One

Quake has an unexpected encounter in his school cafeteria.

Design Trends

I sit alone. That’s not really unusual. I always sit alone during lunch. I’ve been doing it since I was a freshman, and as a senior, I still do. Someone like me could have no friends. Unless, if by friends you mean people who beat you up and mutter ‘numsie’ as they passed you by. If that's what you mean, I have plenty. My real name is Quake, Quake Wanderlust.

I quietly eat my lunch in the cafeteria, as I dread my next class. My magic type is Numets magic. The rarest type. I possess the power of both life and death, the life part pretty much just bringing inanimate things to life for a short amount of time. If I were to want to bring the dead back, or create whole new life forms, well, let's just say there are laws forbidding that. Everyone that has Numets magic has turned out evil so far, but they always seemed evil from the start. I know I would never become like them. If you ever to care to go to the shops with me you would see that I would never even step on an aspergillus, an ant like creature. But the students at Witchwood Academy refuse to go anywhere with me, let alone the shops.

I return my focus to my lunch, staring blankly at my food. I hear someone set down their plate next to me, and I feel as if I am being stared at.

“Hi!” A peppy voice cheers.

“Hello…” I'm still staring at my food.

“So… I saw you sitting alone…”

“Yeah…? An-” This time I look up to see a beautiful girl. She has short, orange hair shaped in a pixie cut, and she wears a light pink baby doll dress with short white heels. Her green eyes and nose fit her ebony face perfectly.

“Oh.. oh my… oh my god!” She almost screams, “Your Quake! The Quake Wanderlust!!”

At this point I am positive that she will run away from me, as everyone does. But instead she stays. But not from the paralyzation of fear. The face I expect to be filled with terror is filled with excitement, and amazement.

“Y-you a-aren't scared of me?” The girl looks at me, shaking her head furiously. Her eyes wide and filled with joy.

“No! Of course not! You are so awesome! My name is Sieri! Sieri Rose Pierce.” The girl, I mean Sieri, thinks for a minute. “Hey, do you have a roommate? My caretakers finally agreed to let me go to school here, so I am new and I have no room yet…”

“A-are you sure? You aren't scared that I’m going to… kill you or... something…?”

“Why would you do that? Besides, even if something like that happened, you could bring me back. Besides, I would love to go on missions with you, I use ignus magic.” Sieri pulls up her hand, showing a small flame. She forms the flame into a hopping bunny, then back into a regular flame. At that, it disappears.

“W-wow! I mean, if you really want to stay with me you can… my dorm room number is 728…” I say stumbling to get the spare key off of my key chain. Sieri looks at my struggle, and giggles.

“It’s okay Quake! Once you chose a roommate, you get to have that same schedule as them! I guess we'll just have to stick together all the time!” She laughs again, “I guess that means that we will have to go to dinner together! Let’s go to The Tulip! It’s this really nice restaurant downtown! It could be like a date! On me!”

Before I can respond, the bell indicating the next class rings.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
