   I have been extremely busy lately so that even though I had written these in October, and ment to post them then, I have been kept from doing so. I also would like to sorry for taking so long to read through things and publish them lately. It was for the same reason that kept me from posting. Anyways, I have caught up now.

   These two stories I wrote for a writting assignment. The first is a rewritten story, and the second is totally original(well, I guess not since it uses the same world as the first) I hope that you enjoy, and any corrections are welcomed with open arms!

September 5, In the Year of Our Lord, Two Thousand and Twelve

The unanimous Declaration of the Free Peoples of Arda, Eraioch, and Drahawn,

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for certain peoples to dissolve any peaceful bands which have connected them with another people, and to assume a posture of war to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God demand of them, a decent respect to the opinions of all moral creatures requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to this state of war.

I have just come back from a journalistic tour in Iran. There, I interviewed a Christian pastor facing execution for his beliefs. I asked him why he would rather die than give up his faith in God, as well as leave his wife and children without him.

"Wouldn't it be better," I asked. "To give it up outwardly, and be reunited with the family that needs you, than to go to your death? What is the point? And why would you love a god so much, if he demanded you to do such a thing?"

The Assassin and Her

He was darkness personified.

Evil in human form.

Frozen and heartless

His chest was an empty hole.

Immovable, unshakable

Carried out his orders perfectly

and without mercy or thought

Trained from the cradle

as a killer

Never had he felt before

Never had he known love

the feel of a mother's kiss upon his cheek

the feel of comfort in a father's arms

the knowing of trust from a child's eyes

Pain, he understood most closely

Despair was his companian

Reeking havoc was his nature
