The fog was thick that morning, so thick that as Lo'on rowed across the lake, she couldn't see for miles around. Usually, when she made this trip, she could see the mountains surrounding the lake, and the villages that sat at the shore. Today, Lo'on could only see fifty meters ahead. The rising sun turned [...]
In a world of opposites, there is a black moon. This black moon orbits a planet with a red sky and sea. And space is a white void with twinkling black stars. It is a weird sight. Slightly disorienting to be honest. But it is the way of things in this world of opposites. In [...]
The puppy whose name was Ginger. She was a shy little thing. With cute brown eyes that made Karma ooh and aah. They shared so many things together. The couch. The kitchen. The bed. The backyard.

Hair was all over the place. Over the couch, over the love seat, everywhere. Daisy put her hands on her hips. "Oscar!" she shouted. Around the corner came her beautiful dog. "Why is there hair all over the place?" The dog's smile was infectious. It was so innocent and beautiful that she went down on [...]
