Description: The earth is getting
colder and colder but a doctor is here to save the villagers.
It was an unforgiving winter, the snow
buried the corn fields and the grape vines. Winterhall is nevermore.
Everyone runs out to seek for a better
harvest, but all eventually succumbed to the illness.
With hunger, bacterias and viruses
proliferates much faster and digests the body cells and organs from
within. It looked like the farmers have turned zombies as their
bodies were black.
I am a doctor and I am here to save the
But I was in touch with something more
than what my medical profession can assist in. The whole bioform of
the landscape and grasses all seems to lose their shape and colours.
I used a fire and warm up the fields of
harvest and it helped. My conclusion is the strong coldness have
terraform this planet into a cold icy realm.
So I went to the farmers and speak to
them the truth.
They listened and did not leave their
cave villages anymore, they dug deeper and deeper, the deeper it is,
the further away from the coldness they are.
We used lanterns and candles to
substitute for natural sunlight and it worked, all our corns,
potatoes and grapes started growing again.
But people are impatient, they dug even
deeper and deeper, eventually we accidentally triggered a sinkhole,
and all is lost.
Everyone and everything is thrown
inside this deep natural hole of 2.4 km. The heat is intense in here,
it was like the opposite of the realm up there.
We split into teams to salvage our
supplies and explore the mystery caverns. We found ancient carvings
and ancient straw beds. We are not the first ones here.
The cave paintings showed vividly a
legend, humans slained all the dragons that were flying around to
wreck farms and houses.
A hero named VAGFSDGd, bring out his
fork and stabbed into the last of the dragon. The villages celebrated
for days and for weeks.
But something strange happened after
months and years passed by, the sun grows weaker and weaker. And the
clouds became less and less.
The last few cave sculptures showed the
reason why, the dragons have helped breathe heat and warmth into the
realm and their wings helped the wind to continue to blow.
Without the dragons, the planet turned
into a dying stone where nothing can grow on it and nobody have any
food or rations.
They decided to proceed forwards and
find the eggs of the dragon, it is said that they had stockpile them
in case humanity forgets their lesson again.
I as a doctor concludes this giant
fiery eggs are dead, no movements or heartbeats can be felt. They
thew it away to the nearby hot boiling river.
Interestingly, the eggs start to float
and crack, it was a rebirth of the legendary dragons. Their beaks
were full of flames and they blaze the whole cavern into a fire mess.
We hatched the wrong eggs, these are
the pheonix eggs. But nevertheless, the pheonix flew up the sinkhole
and transformed the planet into a better place.
I am still stuck in here, my rations
are running thin. We started quarelling and fighting. There is no way
to climb up 2.4 km. And one day, after half of us are gone, the
They decay into rotting flesh and
skeletons. Inside their body are a few more eggs. We hid the eggs and
ate their flesh.
We used their skeletons to create
ladders and ladders, eventually we reached the top.
We are safe. But our humanity have
descended, we sacrificed others to save our skin. We are no longer
humans. Our rage and guilt turns into fire and we started breathing
fire at each other.
Our thickened skin started to flap
through the skies and we see pictures of farms, villages and castles.
Our eyes turned black and we see nothing but enemies waiting to be
We kept hunting down more and more
victims and burn down more and more villages. Eventually, the
extinction of dragons is no more.
The people gathered in armours and
forks to slay and hunt us again.
Our reptilian behaviours suddenly
diminished and we realized we transformed into dragons. We need to
transform back or we be hunted down or that we hunt them down.
And, we realized the cause of the
transformation, we ate the forbidden flesh of the phoenix and our
comrades. That is what had led to our descend.
Our brains lit up and we became
monsters again and fuel enmity the war between the dragons and the
We are the masters of the skies and the
humans are the protectors of the earth, but the world cannot do
without either of us.
On the edge

blonde hair whom torture it with scratches every week.
It needs to climb to the roof of the
cage and flip open the switch and kick vertically upwards to slam the
big door open.
Ding dong, dang, and it's master is
back home again.
"Smiley! Smiley!" you could
almost hear the thumping of movements from the creaky floor. It is
perhaps time to abort the mission.
But until when will I be able to escape
then? No, it must be today, everything else is excuses.
I bumped through the cracks of the cage
wires and my face almost exploded and realized I was being dumb, but
an inspiration led me to do the ultimate manuevuer,
I did a vertical somersault and clench
my jaws onto the ceiling of the cage.
Now this is a challenge for my stamina,
I gripped my abdomen and swung back and forth, and eventually, I
kicked opened the big door and flung myself out as well.
"Are you hungry? Do you have

here, this is where the human walked right pass to the prison cage.
And, indeed, I was right, the tall and
merciless human went pass me with his smelly foot and socks. He knelt
down in front of his dungeon and looked for his tiny companion but
long was it gone.
I quickly swooshed out of the door and
stampede through the many doors. I ended up injured as I got caught
in multiple falls from staircase.
"EEEEeEEEEEeeee" A tall woman
screeched and blasted my ears away. "Get this foul vermin away
from me." Another replied her, "No Ma, that is my pet.”
They swiftly entered into an argument,
it seemed like my master had prisoning me without her permission.
Strange logic, but it matters not to me. I finally reached my end.
I was stopped by a giant oak door.
It looks so beautiful that this must be
the exit to paradise. But my tiny feeble hands do not have the power
to open it. A dash of broomstick tossed me up into the air, I
screamed with might.
I fell down like a helpless tortoise.
My face is bruised, my legs previously wounded on the staircase
jumps, and my heart is pumping too hard from all that adrenaline.
The giant master started clenching the
broomstick from big Ma. It was like watching a wrestling fight. I
could not resist to watch a little more before coming up with another

kitchen table and up the windows bar. It was like mission impossible.
But if I do not go for now, it seems
like I will be torn apart by two mischievious giants.
I pressed hard at the legs of the
chairs and my fingers bled as my nails are tearing apart, I used my
nails and tail to climb up the chair.
I rested at the comfy seat as I
wondered where the humans went.
My energy is recovered, I jumped and
used the momentum to create more energy and did a diagonal flip jump
towards the chair's back which is also a plush cushion.
I directly went outside the kitchen's
windows and went straight into a green paradise. The smell of dirt
and oxygenated air fills my weakened lungs.
I was happy to be free and ranaway. I
became one of the few prisoners that claim their freedom by their
very own volition.
The rain blasted down the bushes and
the cars slamming up and down the streets. I was lost in a city. I
tried to venture off a little bit and went into a very nice and cozy
I was protected by nice and caring park
rangers and visitors.
You could see people playing badmintons
and jogging, all minding their own buisnesses without disturbing the
wildlife. I setup a nest and dug my underground hole.
But what appeared to be an easy job
turns up to be another's home. A long and slender creature pushed out
the sand of my underground hole. It is my nemesis, the snake.
It did not need jaws, for its mouth is
wide to swallow me whole. I do not have a chance and I went away.
Eventually the snake lost track of me
or perhaps it was just chasing me away from its territory. I found a
group of rats and befriended them. They gave me biscuits and I gave

Description: I manipulate dreams,
however one day, stress got the better end of me.
Ah, here I am again.
This is not reality but a surreal

It would be good to enjoy a picnic or
such in my dream instead.
Alright, the park river seems a big too
huge, it is like a horizontal lake and that makes this dream even
Before changing the size, I am going to
look into it, there are tonnes of colorful fishes and ocean manta
rays swirling a park river, now that is over the top and too intense.
A giant black lungfish dashed up the
sky and splash drops of rainwater onto as though it knew I am going
to change the scenery.
I tried and tried, but as I narrow down
the river, the land besides it becomes narrower too, a biker fell
into the river.
A grandma carrying a baby had both legs
sunk into the river.
A security guard blocking people from
entering the river is instead swimming inside the river.
Well, at least the river is safe, there
are no crocodiles or snakes or monster sized catfish. Oh wait a
minute, I am not supposed to think about that.
Try not to think about pink elephants
and your mind will picture it. The river is now crawling with all
kinds of creatures.
Blood oozes the scene and people are
dragging their feet towards the shore. There was a big whistle,
calling everyone to leave the park.
But the park visitors are entertained
with the variety of fishes and monsters lurking underneath the wave.
I took out my camera and capture
images, hoping that I can remember them when I wake up and make it
into a story. But the more pictures I took, the closer I got to the
Because that is where the juicy part of
the story is. A green and sharp reptile shook his entire body like a
burping lizard, the splash blinding the swimming people.
A grey shark opening its big wide mouth
and devouring anything as long as it move.
And many venomous snakes just skiddling
together, trying to keep other animals away from them, they are tired
of this mess.
I have many dreams but none as chaotic
as this. It is time to balance things out. I pointed my eyebrow
together and imagined myself doing pull-ups.
And it worked, many sea creatures are

my brother thugging onto my pants.
Oh, you think I do not want to wake up
right now? I can't, I am stuck inside a nightmare I created myself.
This is as amusing as a comedian dying due to depression, guess I
shouldn't say that.
Broken limbs and the quietness are left
in the pinkish river.
One could see a hundred of more ancient
looking dinosaur scaled crocodiles just paddling like nobody
It is a crocodile park, as if any
government is sane enough to construct such a park.
If I am eaten, I might be able to wake
up, ho, those angular teeths and banging jaws, I might have prolonged
stress after I wake up too. Any ideas, any ideas, guys, save me.
Then, the overpopulated crocodiles
started clawing and attacking each other in a frenzy. No, I did not
I watched everywhere in the park, a
pale girl, a running man and a disturbed fisherman. Now which one of
them looks the more suspicious.
Well, the pale girl, of course, she is
looking directly into the monster river and is not doing anything
else like a park visitor would be doing.
I walked towards her slowly and called
up her name, "Hey angel, did you help me?". She did not

There was no response but the following
words appeared in my mind, crocodiles will not eat you up but stress
The pale girl disappeared and there was
left a few albino crocodiles that were two-sized of a crocodile, they
looked like they killing the other crocodiles just like how white

instantly waked up.
Description: A knight had been tricked
to do something.
Same old story structure, same old fun ~
A disheveled knight walks into the
dense forest for hiding. But the relentless lightning and flashes
still chase after him. "I should not have killed him." Gepa
repents for his sin.
He followed his king's order to kill an
assassin, it turned up to be an innocent merchant. The king most
likely had plundered the merchant's goods and did not bothered about
Gepa the knight.
But Gepa kept running, his sins is
melting inside of his heart, blending him with darkness.
The fast wind breaks the branches and
the leaves fell like snow. There was no light, not even dim radiance
from the moon, it was pitched black that night.
All he could see was sounds, the loud
sounds of his metallic shoes clanky and bonking the dirt path.
He gets more and more tired, but he
could not remove his armour, he is aware that there are animals
living in this dense forest, some of which that can incapacitate him
without his armour.
Every echo he makes, the weaker his
body. He fell into his knees.
When you thought lord would grant him a
break, shadows started loomping at the ends of his vision, pinching
in closer and closer.
He knows he is not alone but a faint
sound sends shiver down his spine, it was the rhythm of a piano and
the pitch of a chair being dragged across the floor.
What gives? He decides to step forward
into the sound and face the eyes of a demon for once and for all.
But the sounds was not nearby at all,
he keeps dragging his feet onwards until the air turns into ice. The
trees grew ever taller but is devoid of leaves and vitality.
The shadows of the trees looks like
dancing witches but there were no flying brooms or magical aura.
As he breached through the final inch,
he stands in front of an ancient gnarled tree, its branches weeping
like a woman's hair.
Finally, he finds the source of the
otherworldly energy, it is coming from this very tree itself. The
forcefield is propelling all of life and death away from this
He thrusts his iron gauntlets into the
tree and is getting sucked into it. He went into the distant pasts
and possible paths.
When he awoke, he realized he had made
a contract with a devil. His fate of bringing good and justice to
people is now not needed of his service.
The tree was the dying form of a fallen
foe, a devil battled against angels or such, then he was petrified
until a tree took over his source of life.
But by harbouring the devil's core, he
abandoned his goodwill and innocence to the demonic realm as well.
An ethereal figure got pulled apart
from his body and walked away, possibly his good aura.
Not sure was it the sleep or the
newfound mystical energy, the knight Gepa surged through the forest
dwelling and reached to his familiar place. He was back at the

powerful. Memories of a holy knight have turned into vengeance of a

his feet turning towards the forest trying to runaway but couldn't.
He was trapped inside of a body that is not of his own anymore.
His veins is crawling with purple
centipedes and darkness is oozing out of his armpits.
He had pledged allegiance to the
otherworldly and if he breaks his bond, he becomes a zombie, a

banners ever long.
One flick of the knight's fingers send
the gravity out of the forkman, they flew off the walls, making the

As imposing as it is, Gepa flew in like

fit to be a king anymore."
The king smirked and slouched lazily at
his square chair, "And it is your right to do so, the governance

not the one with the most rights. You had sold your soul to the

Gepa got confused by the profound
situation, "I am here to claim your head, not your throne.".
He did not cared about what happens to
the kingdom, he just need to repent for his sins and then he will let
the demon inside of him do whatever he wishes to do.
Blue assembled knights and red snipers

foot slain, without legs, even with three heads, it could hardly fend

There was a loud gong on the castle's
gate, the remaining macemen and crossbow archers squeeze into the
grand hall, scaring the courage out of Gepa.
Gepa's fire aura is now nothing but a

gruesome knights and soldiers started advancing back to their old
positions and defend the castle.
Demonic minions, witch, banshee and

Even the dead
Description: You have been turned into
a vampire against your wishes. After many years, you found an
artifact that is able to undo that fact but the more you adventure,
the more you realized that the artifact is not a simple one.
Your friend hurried you, "You need
to go now.". You gave him an empty stare, trying to make this
situation a stupid one. Your friend pestered you again, "They
are coming for you.", and the thought of that puts you up to
your feet. When you left your house and parents, zombies crawled
towards your direction as well but they were not your source of fear.
You have stolen something precious from
the graveyard of the Neverending and the vampires will chase after
you and kill you to bring that artifact back.
You peered at the blue moon before
going underneath an underground passage. You thought this prized item
would render the vampire blood inside of you useless, turning you
back into a human.
However, the pages in this book were
filled with unknown graphs.
The elders leapt into fear, and worried
you might be using the relic to turn all the vampires into humans
instead or perhaps to return the zombies to permanent rest.
The scent of blood and evil splatters
the courtyard, the elders announced your threachery and every single
vampire is now tracking you down.
You are still being pursued by the
energetic zombies, your heart pounding as though it is made of heavy
You finally reached a clearing, your
breath stilled and body slumped, this is a good place to bring down
Channeling the power within another
spell book, you shouted fire bolts and lightning bolts towards the
undead, they got engulfed into a wave of elements and shrieked in
Their bodies turned into a solid wall
blocking the rest of the zombie army.
You casted another invisible spell on
yourself and walked out of the cavern on the other side.
You still have vampire friends in this
village but you dared not risk it, you decided to head towards the
cathedral iron wounded gates.
You already knew vampires gather here
often, so you were not surprised when many vampires started flying
out like flying squirrels.
You entered the forbidden chamber which
the vampires dared not enter. You spoke to a hidden entity whom seems
to disdain you.
The candles stars to flicker and the
ornate stained glass windows starts to fade into blackness.
The hidden entity were the master of
all vampires but somehow concealed himself for unknown reasons. It is
the first time anyone seen his face, and his face is half zombified
and half vampire.
He sensed your fear and guides you into
feeling secured. Even though vampires here have the power to
reanimate dead but zombies will eat the vampires whenever given the
And at this point, you cannot tell
whether the master vampire is a zombie or not.
"The Grimoire book is not from the
mortal land. It looks like a powerful artifact but is actually a
curse brought in from the abyss. The very fact that you are chased by
both the zombies and vampires are a testament to how unholy this
thing is." His gigantic vampire wings flapped loudly inside the
You held tightly onto the unholy book,
realizing its existence may disrupt the balance between the realms,
far beyond the casualty that anyone can restore back.
"Can you save me from this curse?"
But the master vampire reluctantly
replied, "Since you wanted to be a mere human, you shall pay
with the price of your life."
You sensed a threat and self-crashed
through the windows, the other vampires started to chased after you,
eager to rip you apart.
You tried to throw the book into a
river but it reappeared in your arms. You tried to burn it into ashes
and it reappeared flying motionless in front of you.
The only way to end this conflict is to
kill the other vampires. But they are your relatives or distant
cousins. Vampires are often related to one another.
And if you did killed them, your
parents will be hung as punishment. So there was no choice but to
keep on running.
The more you exercise, you more
resilient you became. Your althetic abilities far surpassed the old
you. You actually reached a land devoid of vampires and zombies.
It is so peaceful in here, that you
finally became lazy and settle in.
There were human gangsters here
collecting free money from everybody. Eventually they caught onto
you, failing to pay any coins, you bring out your fangs and turn them
into slices of red meat.
The passerbys gaped at you and started
packing up their belongings. You noticed that unnatural decay
followed in your footsteps, possibly an aftereffect of the grimoire
You got rid of the gangsters in the
village and yet the village holds you in contempt, they bring spears
and fireworks to dispel you as though you are a vampire, oh wait, you
You brandished your jaws towards them
and half of them fell onto the ground. Before you lost your logic and
eradicate each of them, a portal beams out.
Gargoyles and ravens flew through the
portal and started attacking everyone.
As long as the portal is opened, any
demons can stepped through in and you can no longer sleep in peace.
You entered the portal in an unwise manner.
But you thought to yourself, "Maybe
this is the key to unlocking the secrets to the book of grimoire."
But a world of damnation appears before
your very eyes. A scourge of imps escorted you to King Yama across
the burning lake and firefall.
The ruler of this realm and the arbiter
of souls greets you, his breath of words are as ghostly as it can be.
The shadowy guards standing in lanes, their eerie gazes fixate upon
King Yama reveals that the grimoire is,
in fact, his creation. Anyone whose name is written within its pages
will be chased by spirits and demons of all kinds.
You started to flip the book
impatiently and found out your very name is written on it at an
The book is a conduit to the realm of
death, it brings the cycle of life back into balance.
You realized your very identity of
vampire have defied the logic of death for many years and you are
merely returning to what you are supposed to be.
You offered to return the book of
grimoire, but he shows you a desktop of books, "I have plenty of
it and even ones with different effects.
Usually I am here to judge your sins
and reincarnate you, but I shall let you go since you have trespassed
onto one of my mistake.
Do me a favour and cleanup the other
vampires and zombies you knew of.".
You returned back to the desolated
village through the portal, it had already turned into ruins.
To kill all of your vampire kins would
be so immoral that you wondered whether it is actually easier for you
to have died at the master vampire's hands previously instead.
Then you thought that if you were to
become human, vampires and zombies will chase after you endlessly.
And you began to write down every single name you knew of.
You went back to your hometown and
found out news of mass deaths to vampires and zombies.
All but one, the master vampire.
As you approached the forbidden
chamber, you could hear echoes, "Ahhhh, a bringer of death. But
does your actions shapes a better world?"
It is time to fight your vampire
master, but those few words are enough to make you feel like a lost
The air inside the chamber is covered
in smokes of incense. The foul smell stopping you from detecting the
master vampire's aura.
With a sudden burst of movement, both
you and the master vampire locked into each other with full might,
the snarls of fangs brutalize the shadowy night.
You dodged all of his attacks and you
pressed him into a corner. He reveals a blast of power as though he
was not an old elderly.
A whirlwind of strikes and bursts of
magic hammered down your spirit. You could no longer parry anymore
hits. It looks like your view is fading away.
Then you hold onto your book of
grimoire, trying to scare the ghostly vampire away. The walls tremble
and the air is flushed with vibrations of punching and kicking.
Your determination has run into an end.
You taunted the winner, "I am the
wielder of the grimoire and is the strongest in this land."
The winner snaps back at you, "I
am alukah, the most pure-blooded vampire, granting me the strongest
power anyone has ever known.
I was only foul by a zombie bite and

You quickly wrote down his name and an
ethereal iron maiden coffin appeared, locks and chains flung outside
and captured the master vampire.
He was stunned, trying to understand
what ghostly attack is this but it is too late, he was buried inside
the iron maiden, his body is struck with metal spears inside of the
The master vampire's threat has been
extinguished and you are the last vampire known, you wrote down your
name but realized the book cannot kill its owner or writer.
You are left as a prisoner to your
bloodlust and vampric powers for many centuries to come while hoping
for some knight or wizard to bring you down.
Description: A group of adventurers
heading towards a treasure spot, but the closer they get, the more
backstabbing happens, everybody wants to hoard all of the treasures
to themselves or is the entire ordeal just their overstimulated
Eliana is a knowledgeable relic
explorer, his granddad had shared his mastery of the Ancients' lore
In fact, his granddad owns a whole
observatory at the peak of the mountain, peering through that lens is
a wide view of vast lands and shadowy caverns.
Eliana was a charismatic girl, she made
friends with a trio of companions in school, they all shared the same
interests in unknown tales and treasures.
They are a scholar, a rogue and a
Along the far journey, the scholar
managed to pour out Eliana's true goal.
She wanted to bring her granddad back
to life, his sudden death had stopped his wisdom of adventuring as
If someone like granddad were to lead
the way, half of Eliana's adventures into finding relics can be
considered half-accomplished already.
The companions gave a vague expression
as though they disliked that idea.
During the steep hills and sprawling
canyons, their expedition slowed to a halt.
Everyone is mindful of each other, this
is the best time to get intentionally "lost" and ownself
find the treasures and keep it all to oneself.
Before long, Eliana realized a
different plot, they planted her death by pointing her the path
forward which was a dangerous cliff instead, and she felled.
Her body hurts as much as the betrayal
did because she could not comprehend why.
Four years of classmates is no match
for a pile of treasures.
Luckily she wore a rope jacket, those
ropes tying all over her body was not for decoration, it is made of
rubber and plant fibers, allowing the wearer to bounce off dangerous
But a bigger twist had appeared, a fair
looking horse appeared and lick her wounds.
She rode onto it and it brought her to
a secretive cove, a room once owned by her granddad.
All of the Ancients treasures are
apparently moved here, there is a whole background map of the entire
Eliana knew the group of betrayers will
be stopped at the Maze of the Edge.
She fed the horse and left it behind,
for where she is going, dangers lurks.
Giant accidentally triggered a pitfall
trap at the maze, the bottom trapdoor revealed many spikes, Giant
used both of his shoulders to stop the fall.
The scholar and the rogue hesitated for
a moment before pulling the Giant out.
The lack of drinking water slowed the
group down heavily and then they met Eliana, "I got into a fall
when I was trying to relieve myself."
The companions were surprised at her
healthy appearance and welcomed her back.
Eliana knew the mystery of the lost
drinking water pool and kept misdirecting the group into other
directions inside that big green maze.
The rogue went crazy and bashed through
the green walls, but eventually returned with a greater thirst.
Scholar thought about waiting for the
rainwater and then realized how are all the plants growing without
rainfall, there must be a river or pool nearby, using his knowledge
of plants, he leads the group to the plants that required more and
more water in order to grow bigger.
Eventually, the rogue pulled open the
green walls, "Hey, the fressh looking pond of drinking water."
Everyone relished themselves.
Eliana smiled with sadness, her plot to
dehydrate her teammates were foiled, a silly plan but dehydration is
one of the fastest way to die.
A vicious chimera with multiple scaly
lizardy heads looked towards the drinking pool and goes into a
stampede like an elephant.
Holy moly, that huge lizard was not
written inside granddad's note at his secret cove.
Multiple spits turns out to be venomous
needles shot towards Eliana and the rogue, the Giant dashed in and
blocked those hits.
The group quickly went into a great
distance before finding themselves standing on a huge wide canyon
that you cannot even see the bottom, it is just pitched-black down
This place is so scary, it almost looks
like the wind is trying to push you down into the abyss.
Eliana thought of another plan and
started throwing rocks down the canyon, she kept spamming rocks until
the group looks at her suspiciously, "I am just seeing how deep
the hole is, since we are not hearing any sounds, it is too deep for
us, perhaps our journey has ended prematurely."
Then many deep howls travelled from the
deep bottom of the canyon.
It almost sounded like a rock avalanche
except that piles of rocks are climbing upwards towards the
expedition team, as unbelievable as it were, a group of stone golems
started appearing in far sight.
They were colossal and they were not
The rogue started taking his ropes and
tied everyone together and onto a tree.
"I am already poisoned, so let me
be the bed." Giant was the first to jump.
When he jumped, the rope tied to the
other companions pushed them down too.
But they did not landed onto the sharp
ground, they landed onto big webs of white strands instead.
The cute spiders happily greets their
meal and started stapling the group of travellers.
Eliana knew that struggling and rolling
around will loosen the stickiness of the web, so she calmed down and
told everyone not to make noise or sudden movements or the terrifying
queen spider will appear.
They silently took the impales of the
tiny spiders until their faces squeezed like lemons.
Interestingly, the spiders got full and
left, everyone thanked Eliana for her deep knowledge.
Eliana is now crying with sadness, not
sure whether from the bites or the lost chance of killing her
The giant was the first to got down
from the web as he was too heavy and he plucked the rest of the team
from the spiders' web.
"Unfortunately this is where I
stay," the Giant moaned with his bad english but everyone knew
he was poisoned and could no longer move.
The rogue took out his clothings and
bind onto the Giant's body and started pulling him along the journey.
The scholar is skinny and have no
muscles, but he did helped pulled too.
It was a team effort came true.
The strangest part of this deep cavern
is that they can see, and soon enough, they knew why, there were many
minerals that were illuminating.
Eliana danced upon the starry wide
cave, the shines seems to flow like a river underneath their
footsteps bringing them to a half done chapel. "Another chance,"
Eliana thought to herself.
Eliana went missing halfway the walk
and burned down the chapel which the wraiths cherished.
Spectral wraiths started looming out
everywhere, flying as though they did not have a home to return to.
The group met up with Eliana and
everyone brings out their weaponry to defend against the unknown.
However the group of undying wraiths
appeared before them humbly and thanks them for destroying their
They could not move on to their next
life as they needed to protect the chapel from dangerous monsters
here, but they just realized how stupid that is because nobody have
been visiting this chapel except for these new adventurers in a

up into the air.
Everyone thanks Eliana again for her
wise decision to burn down the chapel.
Eliana is now brooding with deep
Eventually, they found the treasure
spot of the Ancients.
There were chests but they were already
Everyone sighed, but Giant sighed the
The scholar shared everyone his food,
the rogue shared everyone his drinking water.
Eliana finally took out some medicines
and gave it to Giant and he immediately turned better.
Eliana woke up early in the morning and
glided passed a titanic wooden bridge, she started to spin the wheel
so the bridge goes up and split apart.
The group of companions are on the
other side of the bridge, "We are still here, Eliana!"
Eliana knew this bridge is a shortcut
back home and otherwise it will be almost impossible to go back up
the deep canyon.
Eliana climbed the ladders that were
old but steady.
As she climbed higher and higher, she
remembered that the Giant blocked the Chimera's attack towards her
and that everyone helped pulled the Giant across the journey except
She had irreputable proof that they
killed her granddad because they tried to silenced her too, but was
it all her imagination?
The image of the ghosts from the
previous chapel appeared in her mind, thanking her.
Eliana realized that maybe this world
is not about herself only, she slid back down the staircase and
unwheeled the bridge.
Everyone came along and thanks her as
though she was helping to scout out for an ambush before letting them
Finally, Eliana admitted the truth that
she tried to abandoned them, she knew they tried to kill her.
It was a pivoting moment and everyone
They told her, they stole items from
granddad's observatory and was caught, they ranaway and granddad
slipped while chasing after them.
If Eliana was to revive granddad,
things will get complicated as though they are the murderers because
they did not brought the injured granddad to a doctor,
they had to end Eliana's life too to
keep things quiet.
They apologized heavily towards Eliana.
But Eliana realized the very truth that
her granddad's death was indeed an accident and that she had been
chasing after her own imagination, a chase after the shining light
that can make her world whole again.
The group became more matured, they
grew up and became responsible adults, they occasionally set out to
more adventures with Eliana.
And Eliana finally smiled.
The computer games addiction
Description: The world has erupted from
nuclear waste but is Adam going to just sit there and play computer games?
The author was waiting for his food
delivery which comprised of hawaiian pizza, spicy tomato spaghetti
and the new spiced drumlets.
The wait turned into a time dilation,
and before he noticed it happening, his brain have already entered a
new realm which seems to be dredging out his moral compass.
A 10-year-old boy named Adam, looking
awkwardly similar to the author was playing computer games non-stop.
His hobby has turned into an endless
obsession, he plays all kinds of computer games; Free 2D racing car
games, paid 3D fantasy rpg games, and the popular subscription-based
3D mmo games.
As the advertisements rage through the
internet, he found himself downloading and playing the "free to
play" anime mmorpgs.
This wrongful decision has burned the
back of his pockets, leaving him penniless.
He was addicted to computer gaming and
the scientists were worried for his mental wellbeing.
Year 2300 is a time when humanity had
begun to regress.
Mankind unlocked the recipes of
technology and automation but that had led to the devolution of
Humans now looked round and fat like
Society has diverted its attention from
wealth and health to sleeping and eating.
It is not allowed to, but people
continued to sleep in public spaces like bus stops, parks and cars.
The notions of wealth, fame and
relationships are all thrown out of the windows.
This laziness spreads like a virus
making everyone looks like homeless people.
No matter how much the government tried
to intervene, the lack of enthusiastic response only led to a further
crumbling of the economy.
The leaders have no choice but to shift
their focus towards meeting the basic needs of everyone, which only
helped the system to spiral down further.
A group of university graduates has
convinced the government to conduct an experiment of a kind, the
details were kept secret but generally, it is about cloning humans
with human dna in year 2020, which was thought to be when humans were
at their most industrious and resilient age.
Adam was one of these clones and to
prevent his mental health from further deterioration, the scientists
confiscated his computer and games, causing him to rage.
He was so angry that he exchanged a few
arguments against his "father", but upon remembering his
"father" is just a scientist and not his real father, he
believed that this "father" is unable to care for or
He was able to plot all kinds of
vengeance towards the scientists, but calculated that his actions
might hurt the other "kids" too and so he aborted his
The transformation of anger to calmness
surprised the other scientists, they noted that the clones are
already more mature than the real humans outside of the laboratory.
Yes, Adam lives in a laboratory and
with the other "kids" as well.
Most of the time, the scientists are
cowering behind a sheet of safety glass, monitoring and educating
them from a safe area.
Adam was supposed to live a beneficial
routine until the age of 20, however, as the scientists see his
spirit dwindled heavily, losing interest in various activities like
gym exercises, playing with stuffed toys and engaging in friendly
board game competitions with the other "kids".
The father reluctantly returned Adam
his precious computer and games.
Adam's eyes flickered with happiness,
his energetic body had returned and he played computer games all
Soon, Adam and the "kids"
became 20 and is required to step out of the laboratory's walls to
prove their worth.
They are the secret weapon to
But when they left the compound, they
saw the truth outside the world and their morale plummeted.
The skies were black, the lights have
turned red from radiation, and the streets were filled with
empty-headed humans that stared at phones.
Some vehicles drove by and accidentally
hit one of the idling humans sitting on the car road, but Adam felt
nothing in his heart.
A chill sense of ideology that the
idling humans are already dead was forged into his head.
Adam and the "kids" rode on
the bus that floats with magnetic levitation, heading towards the
outskirts of the metropolitan city, away from the city's radiation,
and getting closer to the green and clean nature.
They are given all kinds of tools and
instructions to restart humanity, and they worked hard to build a new
beginning, believing that they are the humans' last hope.
Every few months, the scientists will
meet up with the strong humans and interact with them without the
sheet of safety glass in between.
However, the scientists stop visiting
them, and their progression of civilization stops.
They did not own a floating bus, so
they built and rode on bicycles instead.
The long and arduous journey did not
tire their muscular bodies at all, in fact, their faces are still
beaming with excitement.
They entered the laboratory but found
that the scientists have passed away, red with radiation.
The "kids" were distraught
and perplexed, there are nobody to guide them forwards now.
The girl named Gem was flipping the
documents hastily and announced to everyone.
Gem: (Sorrowful) "These documents
have the dna of the scientists and us and it showed that they are in
fact, our parents."
Adam: (Astonished) "What!"
As the city towers collapses under its
own weight, the city radiation starts spreading further.
The boy named Cage took thumb drives
containing information about the world, hoping it would increase
their technological knowledge.
Adam retrieved his computer and gifted
it to Cage.
Cage was confused but realized that
Adam was not coming along with them.
99.9% of humans moved to cities for the
convenience of technology and automated machines.
But most of them had devolved as a
result, their bodies inexplicably lost the motivation to produce
The lack of new generations and the
spread of radiation currents led to the impending extinction of
The group of kids traveled like nomads,
honing their robust bodies and sharpening their instincts along the
Eventually, they met up with the other
nomads from other countries and they learned to communicate with a
globalized language; the sign language.
They exchanged tools and knowledge and
charted towards the Far Point.
However, they found out that the Far
Point is in the middle of the frozen sea, so their journey got
halted, and now they race against time to find a reactive substance
to neutralize the dangers of radiation currents.
As the author's thoughts returned to
the present, he realized that his long-awaited pizza had yet to
The doorbell remained ominously silent,
but he already knew that nobody is coming anymore.
His flesh is as skinny as a rat, but he
walked spiritfully everywhere in the laboratory, reminiscing of his
parents, regretting how he wasted his life on computer games.
He has successfully isolated himself
physically, mentally and emotionally.
Description: Minari does not wants to
work, so does her life still have any meaning to it?
In the realm of frigid air, the vast
terrain trembles, and the howl of the wind echoes through the
Enigmatic creatures, their forms
obscured by the swirling mist, move with elusive grace, their
presence felt but never fully seen.
Ethereal clouds, wisps of silver and
gray, persist in their graceful drift, casting shifting shadows on
the frozen ground.
Descending into the depths of the
earth, a staggering 10 kilometers--or should we measure it as 56179
bananas--beneath the verdant grass, an imposing monolith emerges,
Wrapped in a labyrinth of coiled
cables, pulsating with otherworldly energy, the colossal rock stands
as a testament to enigma, an ancient artifact of unknown origin.
Before it, two rows of cerulean
capsules stand sentinel, their sleek surfaces reflecting the pale
light, each cradling adult human curled in fetal positions.
Though their bodies appear alive,
darkness and desolation shroud the surroundings, a haunting reminder
of a world left behind.
Indulging in a slice of pepperoni
pizza, a woman with tousled hair savors the symphony of explosive
flavors that dance upon her palate.
The tangy tomato sauce, the zing of the
pepperoni, and the perfect blend of herbs and spices create a
harmonious melody of taste.
The fiery spices ignite the senses,
searing the lungs, while the golden cheese cascades and melds,
crafting a molten masterpiece that journeys from mouth to stomach,
satisfying both hunger and soul.
But in an unexpected twist of fate, an
otherworldly delivery of ice cream plunges Minari into a sudden and
The fabric sensation of her clothes on
the sofa makes it feels like a bed.
Upon awakening, the weight of a year
descends upon her consciousness, pressing heavily on her mind.
Perplexity ensues, for indeed, a year
has truly passed, a span of time lost in the depths of her slumber.
No familiar faces wake her up, no
family, pets, or alarms disrupt her solitary hibernation.
The absence of socialization leaves her
uninspired and tired despite having just woken up.
Then, a new connection charged up her
physical body and metabolic energy, and her mind races with an
Childhood memories unfurl, starting
anew and expanding with heightened detail as if the sands of time
have shifted and revealed hidden treasures.
Her mind becomes a vast archive, a
repository of experiences and emotions, it was like someone had
equipped her with an upgraded graphics card--or perhaps a CPU--that
allows for the vivid replay of the tapestry of youth.
Wandering through bustling streets,
Minari witnesses the rising prices but did not feel its impact.
When hibernation possesses the power to
reduce material needs, monetary concerns fade into insignificance.
Yet, an ache permeates her solitary
heart, a whisper of desolation, as she finds herself detached from
society, contributing nothing but consumption, trapped in an
existence devoid of purpose.
In essence, Minari is jobless, or
should I say, does not want to work.
Her world was turned upside down by her
choice, and still, the elixir of motivation eludes her grasp.
She yearns for a sense of belonging,
for a purpose that transcends the mere act of survival.
Her mind embark on a quest to
understand the meaning of life, while her steps carried her through
the labyrinth of neon signs and towering screens that adorn bustling
Yet, with every passing moment, the sky
gets greyer while her question is left unanswered, she was left with
but one choice, to return home.
Nightfall ushers in the familiar
routine, the memorized set of numbers, 6848 8034, ringing in her
ears. "May I have your pizza order?"
Her anticipation grows as she awaits
But her anxiety makes her go to the
fridge like a zombie, she savor the branded chocolates and sweets she
While nibbling, she was reminded of the
cold reminders of her school days.
Even though she was an innocent and
youthful schoolgirl, nobody did hang out with her.
Instead, the other students were
treating her as a courier of love.
Many entrusted Minari with tokens of
affection, candies, and chocolates meant for their clandestine
paramours, eventually, her jealousy seeps in and she started to enjoy
the sweet forbidden delicacies, all by herself, the taste of revenge
being sweeter than the commodity itself.
Within the confines of a chilly room,
dim lights casting feeble illumination, a computer boot up.
A blue hologram materializes into a
Sinewy tentacles grab the mouse and
stop the test. "Test termination denied." "Error 500."
"Please initiate manual shutdown."
The towering entity, resembling an
octopus in form, releases a sigh of resignation, a bitter lament for
the fate that lies ahead.
As the entity contemplates the choice
to manually shut down and potentially lose all his work and progress,
a glimmer of determination shines in his cephalopod eyes.
He realizes that sometimes, to find
meaning in life, one must be willing to risk everything and embrace
"Just cut short"
Description: Just a visit to the barber.
She wore plain white clothes as she
playfully threw ice cream sticks onto castles made of erasers.
Each eraser had a different country's
flag as its theme.
With determination in her eyes, she
threw the first stick, but it barely made a dent in the fortified
Undeterred, she gathered her strength
and hurled another stick with even greater force.
This time, the castle walls crumbled,
creating a shower of gigantic erasers.
Though she emerged victorious, a sense
of dissatisfaction engulfed her.
She yearned to not only demolish the
castle but also the towering structure standing beside it.
The tower, designed with erasers facing
downward in stacked layers, had unintentionally transformed into an
indestructible formation, shattering the game's balance.
The towering structure presented an
irresistible challenge, tempting her to concoct a meticulous plan,
especially since she had a meager three ice cream sticks to bring
down both the fortress and the tower.
The task seemed impossible, but she
The castle fell first, triggering a
domino effect that destabilized the walls, ultimately causing the
tall tower to lose its equilibrium.
With a final stick, she tipped the
balance, and the tower descended like a falling apple from a tree.
The elation of her victory soured when
her father arrived home and discovered the chaotic room.

Her father, convinced she was a spoiled
child, was taken aback when she burst into tears.
He tried to assure her that he wasn't

one in trouble.
As the sun began its descent, an
ordinary person walked into the bustling barber shop, a familiar

unusually fast, necessitating frequent visits to the barber.
He willingly invested in twice-monthly
haircuts from monthly haircuts, considering them a worthwhile
purchase for comfort.
The hair cutter switched to bigger
scissors, deftly trimming the top of the customer's head.
Despite the significant hair reduction,
the customer did not appear bald or unattractive; the layered haircut
created an illusion of fullness.
It was this attention to detail that
kept him loyal to this particular barbershop.
Yet, a nagging thought lingered in the
How long would this old hair cutter

when he passed away?
The hair cutter reached for a mirror
and showed the customer the back of his head, expertly trimmed with
With precision, he performed a final
shave, reducing volume but maintaining the same stylish hairstyle.
Then, with meticulous precision, he
used a sharp razor to clean up the sideburns and the back of the
head, eliminating even the tiniest stray hairs that scissors and
shavers couldn't capture.
The session concluded swiftly, and the
customer gratefully paid the hair cutter in full.
Regaining her composure, the tearful
girl picked up her remote control and aimed it at her father.
As she pressed a button, an
extraordinary event unfolded.
Her father began to move backward, and
the hands of the clock reversed their direction.
A familiar ding-dong bell resonated,
signaling the return of her parents.
Curiosity piqued, her father glanced
into her toy room, only to discover it meticulously clean and tidy,
to an almost unsettling extent.
He asked if Blame, his child, was
Blame shook her head, and her father
kindly lifted her, his touch as gentle as a feather.
"Did you stop playing with the
castle and erasers because you were afraid of me scolding you?"
he inquired, his tone softening.
"I don't think it's good to waste
your entire day doing nothing."
He smiled warmly.
"Come on, we're going to a roller
coaster theme park."
Overwhelmed with joy, Blame playfully
kicked her legs, prompting her father to gently place her back on the
Blame's face beamed with affection.
"I love you, Dad," she
exclaimed, wrapping her tiny arms around him in a tight embrace.
True happiness transcends material
it thrives in the simplest of joys.
Disciples of Guan Xi
Description: No matter how carefully
you live your life, you are bound to make some mistakes.
Based on real events.
In the tranquil ambiance of the Asian
temple, a desperate man finds solace in the presence of the towering
Guan Xi statue.
Her bronze skin wearing flowing robes,
standing patiently to listen to her devotees.
The scent of incense fouls the air,
awakening the spirit of the man.
Above, the temple's lofty ceiling is as
vast as the sky, while the bamboo walls blocked the natural sunlight,
creating a soothing dimly lit shrine.
Lingering in this wooden temple are
bronze statues and revered beings, their skin showing off a glow
rarely seen elsewhere.

Son: (courageous) "Pa, I realized

Father: (self-confident) "Foolish
son, you became healthier when you ate my medicines."
Lost in his thoughts, the father paces
around the house, still finding his medicines.
Son: (courageous) "I lied to you
that I became better, pa. Otherwise, you would just continue to feed
me ineffective medicines."
Father: (obnoxious) "Oh, I worry
that you might have some memory issues, but fear not, I have just the
right medicine for that."
The father walked on all fours and
starts searching for herbs underneath the sofa, underneath the bed,
and underneath the dining table.
Mother Red: "Are you not hungry?
You could always search for your medicines after you have eaten."
Flashback in 10 years, a deadly illness
has emerged and persisted for a couple of years, forcing many people
to face the ramifications of it.
The ill lie on hospital beds, but they
claim not for a cure, rather they would prefer visitations from
friends and relatives to warm up this cold, bleak world.
In this ant-like world, one has to keep

Footsteps never entering the public

Because of the abnormal data, it is now difficult to claim monetary

This news was a huge setback for
everyone, the payback from the insurance could have relieved half the
burden of the hospital bills that almost everyone pitched in, and it
is now gone.
Everyone avoids looking at the father,

On the year 2364, humanity has startrd to decay. Nothing id left of planet earth other than a lifeless, burning wotld, pretty much like venus. One of the last humans in the solar system, a young boy called Stacks, was trying to find a new home at an affordable price for his family. Yet he had no luck, his family was very poor and the colonization ships were expensive to board.
"Oh, shut! Here we go again!" He said.
He sneaked in and stole 3 tickets, but he was csught again. "Ih, so it's you again, you little and puny idiot!?" Said the guard.
"I want to get my family a new home" Replied Stacks. "I don't believe yoi" Said the guard and hit Stacks in the face.
The same scenario repeated every night at midnight. But one day, he found an old man eith 3 spare tickets. "For you, I don't need them, and you look like you need them more than I do" Said the old man. "Thanks!" Answered Stacks. The next day, the family boarded the huge spaceship. And he and his family managed to leave the horrible place their home had become. The end? Now the writer heard something.
His mail was there.
Btw, yes, the young boy is me, I like to make the main character as a self-insert whenever I write a story.
