Daisy sat balanced on Talyns lap, as Talyn brushed through her hair gently. She was soon done and twisted it into a bun, inserting the rose as well.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyDRYCpByeR
"Thanks!" Daisy said, bouncing off to color with Will. The two began drawing in giant robots. Sitting on the floor, carefully coloring in with markers.

"Cute, isn't she?" Iris stated to Talyn.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9PK0OmppVE
"Sure is," Talyn agreed, watching as Will and her traded markers.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhsx6LN5233
Suddenly, Iris's phone rang.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7NqQc0mbYD
She was quiet for a second, then said, "We'll be right there," and hung up.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh7s28goyGk
Will send Clint had looked up. "We gotta go," Iris said seriously. Carina had just walked out of her tent, looking a little confused.

Three siblings chase each other around, laughing, being loud. The oldest would tickle them when she got near, but the middle child would protect the youngest, so she could wiggle away and run again.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpHUnTC2EhG
The oldest had the two trapped in a corner, and she flashed her fangs at them playfully, the youngest using the middle child as a shield.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuljfqTzVtF
"Ahhh!" The two siblings shrieked, just as a man walked in. He had very tan skin, black messy hair with black horns twisted to the sides poking out of it.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKdlsyaZvfV
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMFCG2wj5aB
The three children suddenly fell silent, turning to the man.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLFW4UnYuir
"What on Earth is going on?" He said slowly.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ92FvudGuIV
"We-We we're playing sir," The middle child said, looking down at his feet.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpuB2bEyuJJ
"You were too loud," he growled.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6up2yjqxOI
"So what? Deal with it?" the oldest said, growling right back.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZXLEtgS9KB
He struck her face, hard, and she fell.b"How dare you disrespect me like that!" He snapped as the middle raced towards the oldest, checking her face. A red mark was left stinging on her cheek.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5a6GdhkMM4
The youngest turned to the man and grinned up at him, confused on what had happened. "Hi, daddy," she said. He flinched.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwSyVV7flF3
"Rat," he huffed, picking her up and balancing her in his hip. The youngest only giggled. "Behave," he snarled to the other two and strode out the door.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4E1Pju5bEQ
He allowed the youngest to play with his crown, admiring the jewels, her head tilted.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMK0TrdaM0X
"I'll be glad to get rid of you," the man snapped, continuing to walk.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQwQorMwG7b
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJcPK18f6kT
At around 10 that night, around the time the youngest was born, he watched the youngest play with her toys on the floor.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW7EX05bbRb
He would just have to wait. Wait for her body to crumple up into nothingness..She looked so cute..so innocent and pure.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8HHZ69LCPT
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNz5Dk6Mzd6
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtae77ecjp3
The clock struck 10:30.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvyKdxQmitb
The man swiveled to the girl, watching her, to see if she crumpled to dust, and died. He leaned forward, eyes wide, as her little body then tensed up, and she dropped the toy that was in her hand.
She shivered, whimpering in pain and discomfort, her skin turned a sick grey, and her eyes then clouded over. She sat there in silence and in stiffness. A slow, evil, grin spread on the man's face.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbhLgU5nHEA
After about five minutes of cold air and waiting, the room started to feel very warm. The man was confused, his eyebrows knitted together, thinking-
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO8K2fSgsbG
The girls eyes began glowing a bright blue, and white emebers drifted from her hair, and her skin returned to it's regular color. There was a bright flash of blue, and the man jolted a little, watching as it slowly faded away. The girl was floating a fee inches off the ground, her head hung back slightly. She was let down slowly, on her side.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvHegUL7g3B
The man was confused, and- angry.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsfSdwNiTuX
Her soul had fought the curse off.
And it was clear she wasn't about to die.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡti6elm7BOi
The girls eyes flickered open. "...Mommy?" She turned her head and saw the man. "Dad...? What's wrong?" She said again, staring at the fury on his face.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhkZwBUhJal
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkCAcQ6090u
He slowly got up and grabbed her arm suddenly, and began dragging her behind him, walking out of the room and down the hallway.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7tNdI8zPKo
Nanook struggled and kicked in fear, and confusion, and she began to cry.
She continuously asked what was happening, hot tears streaming down her face.
The man ignored her cries, briskly walking down the dark hallways, eyes set ahead, and narrowed.
He then opened a black, wooden door and began to walk down a winded staircase. Few torches lit the way, so it was still very dark.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ82I8yj2Q2c
The girl tried to follow behind him, trying to stand, but she kept tripping, still crying.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbmPLzGSzPS
The girls eyes widened as they got to the bottom.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4WmS951JUM
Her mother sat there, dirty, in a cell.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ73OPbn9edc
Her mother looked up and her eyes widened, she ran to the bars, clutching them. "What are you doing?" She cried, looking fearful.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqozga8W3IL
"Banishing your daughter," he spat.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWNIjFSoHBj
"Mommy!" the girl cried, struggling against the man and reaching for her mother's hand.
The mother reached through the bars and clutched her hand, speaking softly, but firmly at the same time, "My pup, don't lose yourself, okay? Remember who you are! don't lose yourself, you're a princess!"
Her voice rose as the man wrenched the girl away. " I love you!!!"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtImiyyGIMU
"MOMMY, MOMMY, PLEASE, NO!" the girl cried, reaching for her mother, wanting to be with her again. She disappeared behind a wall.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUditttCqxk
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcu8UNNMbvo
She was just ripped away from her family.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvZ7RiFpYnb
The man walked down another hallway and opened another door. A lot of portals we're in there, each leading to someplace else.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSiobLSFnic
In the center of all of them, there was one with green grass and white flowers, a bright light flashing through and blinding the girl and the darkness around her.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIvGQpuEcGa
"Since my little plan went to dust," the man growled. "Here's plan B. to be banished, away from everyone. as you suffer slowly and wither from existence. "
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAb9H3rnsqL
The man pushed her forward, towards the portal and a force yanked her closer and closer.
She couldnt stop it, it was too strong, and then she fell in.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEi43tPW9df
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmWK2Naxsmd
Now, it was quiet, and calm.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCXoLFrd3UD
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPzWTDqJzzW
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPVTzYGKv86
And her family was a whole other world away.

The four raced on their motorcycles to the scene.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxOXjTtNfkL
Cop cars were piled around the area, sirens blaring as floods of people fled from the scene, screaming and distressed.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8MxKToamyb
A giant, 20ft. wolf was there. Clint took it all in. Red-ish spikes covered it's entire body, it's tail has no fur but pink skin and sharp spikes, one spike right on the end and curved, like a scorpions. Spikes went in a line on it's back, few patches of fur seen. You could see it's ribs poking out of the pink skin, it's claws gripped the ground, red, and it's yellow eyes looked absolutely furious. Slobber and blood dripped from it's mouth.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzMH1xqkpAP
"Shoot," was the only word Clint could form.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw7DtrwXfMh
"Well, fuck," Talyn shouted, and Iris hit her.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1U3yFXWPkv
"Wait-"Will said, throwing an arm in front of the three, pointing.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1TiJVQagfK
A girl has just gotten the wolfs attention. It turned to her, still growling, it's tail raised.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5LSIfjecz0
"Doggy!" The girl cried, grinning. "Look-Look- we're the same!" She smiled, as her tail swayed from side to side, trying to be...friends with it..?
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAVy8Bv5rQ
The wolf just growled in her face.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBsJTbFJlVZ
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ51LXK0hYdQ
"Go!" Iris shouted, and she ran, sliding under the wolfs belly, slicing it with her sword as well, and rolling, snatching up the girl and getting to her feet. Iris ran to the side, keeping the girl safe.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZHrVfzwLFX
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBhqlaB0UXW
The wolf staggered back, whimpering, and turned to Clint.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU2YF0IFhHT
Clint's knife changed into a curved dagger, glowing blue, marks appearing on his face and glowing blue also.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8HAzCQ99BP
Clint slashed and stabbed at it's eyes, and the wolf roared back, shaking it's head, as Clint was knocked aside and fell, his blade flying out of the wolfs eyes as well, landing beside Clint.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7d6xyh8zb6
Will was darting around the wolf, slashing at it's sides quickly and darting around it before the wolf could spot him.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw58uL9cqrT
He ran, as a flurry of arrows pierced it's back.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjzAU9dLjmm
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8uAf18waII
As it turned to Talyn, growling, it's tail came crashing down.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgeOpIzyU00
She rolled out of the way, shooting it's other eye, and quickly dodged another strike from it's tail.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOkApeJCZ2Z
Will had climbed up its back, and was just about to stab it's neck-
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmbtWqv5WGN
Then, he was flung off as the wolf roared back once again, and was falling to the ground, eyes wide. He braced himself-
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEW1smK1VE2
And he was caught in Clint's arms.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVtmvSBfuAh
Will looked up, his arms wrapping around Clint's neck.
Clint's eyes widened, but he put will behind him as his shield appeared, and the rail crashed down on them, trying to crush them.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuXsYUTt0P9
Will and Clint dropped to their knees with the pressure, as Clint's arms shook.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNu6PWtzYoe
"Will!" Clint cried, eyes widening-
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0kInPAY55z
Will had suddenly ran off, blades out again, right to the wolfs throat, and whipped his arm, slitting the wolfs throat.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnAwQyrJ2ry
Blood sprayed our from the wound, and it began to fall, collapsing on the ground. It began to face to mist, just blood the only evidence it was ever there.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbf2i5ZMEYa
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTZuCmkckpi
Will frowned, his eyes narrowed.
Will stood there, covered in blood, wiping his face with his crop-top. "Aw, man...I really liked this shirt.."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTNSqDqRmsj
Clint's blade and shield turned back to the little knife with a flash, Clint smiled at him. "Nice one. "
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUEyXXDXJiV
Will smiled back, Talyn running up. "Now let's go, before the police start asking questions," Talyn said quickly, Iris joining her, the girl who tried to befriend the beast balanced on her hip.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUcUpOhJ0B9
"She told me she didn't have anyone," Iris said. "I think we should take her in, take her to camp.."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjvWbVzCMW5
"Good idea," Clint nodded.

"Daisy, Carina?" Iris called out, holding the girls hand as they stepped in.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJvpuzu0GAu
Daisy and Carina looked up from a puzzle,"New addition?" Carina asked, smiling at the girl. She grinned back.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyLV4S43maa
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTfBQBQFJgy
"Yep, " Talyn said. Daisy got up and walked over, head tilted.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLZ3btDGtkg
She looked the girl up and down. The girl had thick, black hair in tangles, fair skin, a beauty mark under her right eye, plasma blue eyes, left pupil slit, a black, fluffy wolf tail, black wolf ears and black, feathery wings.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYS1TWUY0g9
Daisy's ears flicked, and the girl thrust our her hand, grinning widely. "Hi! I'm Nanook!" she said.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb9oN00EFJU
Daisy hesitated for a moment, then smiled and shook Nanooks hand. "I'm Daisy."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡevTiHmWnQg
"Are you doing a puzzle?" Nanook asked. "Wanna finish it together?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEO8GI5AG6R
"Er..sure!" The two girls walked back to the puzzle and began trying to solve it.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPh1d41dIHX
Iris called the rest over to talk, Carina watching over the girls.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCWswe9SaxJ
"What's going on?" Talyn asked quietly.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqcxzSfFtWL
"While you guys were fighting the wolf," Iris said, " The girl told me she had been "banished" and she came from someplace else. She said she had no family..she said this man banished her four years ago.."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkL2lZ7ncQ4
Talyn frowned. "That's awful. " She glanced back at Nanook. She looked so happy...
"Let's just be there for them, okay?" Clint sighed.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9t1CZfMSqk
"Woah- does Clint..care about someone?" Talyn fake gasped.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBQw8qoo5Rl
"Oh, didn't you see, Talyn, how he caught Clint like a prince," Iris said, making kissy faces and noises. Clint tried to keep himself from smiling, blushing furiously, but all he could say was, "Shut up.."
