Chapter 17
For just a little while longer, Billie wanted nothing more than to just roam and explore the amazing Dream Sphere, to have free access to place in this realm that by all means shouldn’t possibly exist. A whole realm where the dreams of every living person were real? How could this be? She wanted to explore the endless landscape, the lay back and look up at the swirling hypnotic colors of the sky. She wanted to touch and smell the grass and flowers that had impossible colors and shapes. She wanted to run and chase after the scurrying little animals she had no names for.
But at the grave warning and looks of the Orisha gods, she knew there would be no way. They were here on a mission, and if they failed, it was not only them that would suffer, but so much more innocent people back home. There was no way she was going to let them down, not if she could help it. Taking a deep breath, she turned her head to look at Dante, standing

Time seemed to pass so slowly as Billie and the others looked at the gods with wide, shocked eyes. Were they hearing things, or did the Orisha gods just say that they needed to go to the Dream Sphere? How would that even be possible? Yes, the gods did explain to them about the Dream World, where many figures of the past and even today have ventured, one of the most famous and powerful being Joseph himself of the bible. Because of his control of dreaming, he saved his family, Egypt, and the entire Hebrew nation from starvation. Some say even the world because of how bad the famine could have been without his advice and preparation.
But what could they possibly do in the Dream Sphere? They were just….kids. Just ordinary kids who wanted to do well in school, make friends, find first loves, and dream about what they wanted to become in the future. Never in their lives did they ever imagine they would be chosen to practically save

Morning sparked into existence like a small burst of a tiny flame, chasing away all darkness and signifying a brand new day and beginning. For others, it was just the start of another day, some heading to work as others were just coming home from the night-shift. Life went on as usual for just about everyone else….that is, everyone except for a small group of friends that literally saved the city from being leveled by a god that was many thousands of years old. But no one would ever really know that. And if anyone did whisper about the strange happenings going on in the city recently, especially the episode with the fiery lava, of all things, many would just shrug it off, leaving it to a natural phenomenon; a freak occurrence and nothing more.
Who would believe that a malevolent force was out to destroy everything they cared and loved? So many just pushed the strange things out of their minds and went about as if nothing happ

Time itself had no meaning as Billie and Dante stood before the approaching ancient god, eyes wide and bewildered. Had it all come to this? To be cut down after everything they’ve been through by a god whose power they could barely comprehend? What could they possibly do? Taking in a shaky breath, Billie looked around at her fallen friends, barely moving as they lay on the ground.
How could this have happened? Everything was going so well! Samedi and Shapona were gone, hopefully to be never seen again or at least healed from whatever hate had infested their godly souls. But now…….a new threat had appeared and Billie had no idea how she and her friends would get out of this alive. Why was this happening? All her friends….they were hurt because of her, trying to protect her and Dante. Her happiness with finding new friends and possible new love was being ripped away.
With tears filling her eyes, she remembered

The world itself seemed to stand still as Dante stared slack-jawed at his approaching grandmother. What the heck was she doing here? And….how did she get here? Wasn’t she supposed to be home, recovering? When he and his family got the call about his grandmother making a miraculous recovery from the hospital, it was like a ton of weight lifting off his shoulders. His grandmother was well, all would be right, and he wouldn’t have to be uprooted again.
When they went to see her, it was like nothing had happened to her at all. The old woman was happily talking with the nurses and doctors and eagerly waiting to go home. His aunt and uncle were completely stunned, but Dante had his suspicions on the rapid recovery; her fighting spirit, resolve, and her strong connection with powerful forces that Dante could barely begin to understand. It was no wonder his grandmother was so insistent on her learning about his family pa

After taking in a relieved breath, Dante continued to watch his aunt and uncle carefully sit his grandmother on her chair in the modest-sized dining room. His grandmother seemed to be slightly annoyed at all the fuss, but despite her few grumblings, he couldn’t be more relieved or happy in his life. Things had looked very bleak for the elderly woman, but she had pulled through. It was though an angel was watching over her, as his aunt and uncle said many times, but the young dark-skinned boy knew it was much more than that.
With a touch of sadness, he recalled how Baron Samedi and his cohort Shapona had nearly ended the woman’s life as she was protecting him and his friends. He still felt a little guilty about it as he recalled the image of the Disease God spewing poison into her. Why wasn’t he fast enough? How could he not have anticipated that? Wasn’t he supposed to have looked after her, made sure she was

Dark, rolling clouds spread far and wide above in the Louisiana sky, covering the city in a gray haze. A light rain fell, dampening the streets, cars, and anyone who was caught in it. People walked quickly up and down the sidewalks, hoping to get to their destinations before the predicted downpour came. Colorful umbrellas of all sizes were proudly displayed as people hurried by.
Edwin paid no mind as he dashed down the sidewalk and into the double doors of the apartment building he lived in with his mother. His dark, wavy hair was even more wavier with the dampness as he quickly went up the hallway stairs, making any girl who would have seen him at them moment swoon. But girls were the last thing on the young boy’s mind now. After pulling out his keys, he opened the apartment door and quietly walked in, doing his best to ignore the smell of disinfectant and strong medicine that greeted him.

The sun was just starting to set on the another peaceful, brilliant day in the city of New Orleans, bathing the endless sky in an array of dusky colors, from a warm orange to a brilliant red. The cool breeze calmly rustled the changing leaves,  signifying the quickly approaching evening. Birds began to search for their nests or other places they called home, and a few bats were already frittering about, hoping to get an early start on catching insects. Even off in the distance, traffic from the streets began to slow down from the high volume of just an hour before of people heading home.
But in the famous park, Billie and her friends barely noticed as they continued to practice, unmindful of the darkening skies. For hours they worked to perfect their use of their new weapons, swinging, throwing, and doing mock battles. But no matter how tired Billie started to feel, she pushed herself. She had to. Their new enemy was more powe

Kindred Hospital:
Alone in a darkened hospital room, an elderly dark-skinned woman lay comfortably. Beside her, vital monitors and other machinery beeped and flashed, keeping watching and showing her heart and pulse rate. Her gray hair was still neatly tied up in a thick bun, and every few moments or so, her eyelids flickered. The oxygen mask and tubs were long since removed, as she showed signs of improving every day. Many of the doctors were stunned by the rate of her recovery. There was no way anyone would have survived the intense amount of infection and bodily degradation this woman had when she was rushed in. What was keeping her alive? How could she have such a strong will to live?
No one had the answer, but they continued the watch the amazingly lucky older woman. Even when she did fully recover, the doctors hope to study her more. Everyone in the city knew how famous she was for her voodoo practices and strange happenings a

Almost as though time itself had stopped, Dante stared in shock as Hazel tried her best to wake Billie, laying so limp and fragile in her arms. What in the world just happened? One moment, he was ready to take on the new enemies with his friends and Billie by his side, and the next thing he knew, he was rocked to his very core by the horrific images in his mind. Images from long ago that he thought he had conquered growing up.
Not too long after his parents had never come home from their trip, young, 7-year-old Dante began to have terrible dreams of monsters coming after him, just as he had imagine they came after his parents. All he knew about their deaths was that it was a deadly, unforeseen plane accident that no one survived. He remembered asking his grandmother and distant relatives after the funeral what exactly had happened. How did the plane crash? Were they really gone? Where were their bodies? But no one had any answers or refuse

With eyes wide and feeling as though time itself had stopped, Keisha, Kwame, and Antonio could only stare in shock as Madame Brigitte came closer and closer.  How could such a fun day turn into a total disaster like this? Why was she doing this?
Gulping, Keisha was the first to jerk herself out of her stupor and look around the large arcade. Smoke was still rising from one of the large video game machines that Brigitte had destroyed. Sparks still jumped and flashed from it. Within moments, the arcade was darkened from the thick smoke. As she continued to look around, she realized with horror that there were still a few people inside the arcade, a few coughing loudly and just about to go into unconsciousness from the smoke.
It was then she understood Kwame’s warning. There was too much at stake here for her to use her powers. The whole place would erupt in a deadly explosion due to the voltage, and people could be hurt...or worse.

For just a little while, Edwin allowed himself to actually have a good time, watching Keisha happily bounce all over the arcade and basically talk his ear off. He had never been in such a situation where everyone was so care-free, so joyous at just being young and having a good time. That certainly wasn’t the case back home in Brazil. From ever since he could remember, everyday in his poor neighborhood was basically a struggle. Because of the poor options of employment and education, there was very little opportunity in his neighborhood, and because of that, people lived desperate lives, sometimes even resorting to going through the junkyard and even  the garbage dump to find something of value, no matter how little.
Edwin had learned very early on that life was hard, and that to sometimes even get a bite to eat, you had to fight those more than twice the size of you.….and fight very hard. Many times he had come home with b

Hey everyone, me again! :D :wave: I hope everyone had a great Summer...well, despite what's been going on around the world. I won't go into it, but according to the news, it's been one heck of a Summer for 2017, and I can only hope that everyone will soon keep a level head and just...calm down. :O_o: We can only hope Fall and Winter will settle things down. *sigh* Anyway, nothing really much new with me. I'm still writing my Legacy story and I can't believe it's coming to a close soon. It's been a blast writing it and I'm so glad to be able to use a subject that not a lot know about. African mythology has been sadly ignored in literature and I can only hope through my stories that more people will pay attention to it. Seriously, it's amazing. There's so many different folklore, mythologies, and characters that would put most Greek and Roman mythology to shame. :aww: One of my faves is the story of Anansi, the trickster Spider God from the Ashanti mythology. He's a little bit more known, which I'm glad for, but still doesn't get enough love. ;) Another that I really enjoy and love is the Yoruba mythology, which my story is based on. I truly love how easy it is to see that many of the Greek and Roman gods we know today are basically derived from them, go check for yourself. So yeah, it was fun and I'm already thinking of new story ideas, like Native American. So we'll see. I wanted to thank those of you who took the time and respect to read my stories and give me the comment, suggestions, and extra eyes for typos I so desperately needed, instead of those who ignored. You know who you are, and I truly thank you. :huggle:

Anyway, besides that, I wanted to know if there is anyone out there who is willing to do a special kind of pic for me. I'm really looking for someone to do a pic of Marvel's Black Panther and Storm meeting and conversing with my (very) old Sailor Moon characters Sailor Sirius and her cousin Polaris. Black Panther is basically one of the first Black superheroes from Marvel and he has always been my idol growing up in New York. Not because he was Black, but because of how much he cared for his people, justice, and what was right. Sailor Sirius stood for that too, and as she was the first Black Sailor Senshi, and later on her cousin, I thought it would be awesome if they would meet, as I have a bit of Sailor Sirius meeting Princess Tiana, Disney's first official Black American Princess. :aww: So please, is there anyone out there willing to help me out? It's really important to me, especially with the Black Panther movie coming out and I just wanted to celebrate that. :D Please note me.

Other than that, I'm just here. ^^; Thanks a bunch, and again, thank you to those here with hearts big enough to take the time to read my stories, instead of just being one of those "SQUUUUEEE! That pic is so cuuuuuuute! I'm gonna dieee!" girls here. :roll: Take care, and have a wonderful Fall. :wave:
