Mt. Defiance

   One of the most physically challenging experiences I have gone through was a hike up Mt. Defiance. Like its name implies, it defied me every step of the way. This was the hardest hike I’ve ever done, and I hike a lot.

 Chapter Three

Encountering The BIG Bull


He was riding his horse down the road when an old man came bursting out of a gate, rushing up to him. He had a sword in one hand and a bull whip in the other, and he was riding a big bull. He shook his weapons at him and yelled,

"Thief! Thief! You get off my horse you horrible man!" 

The prince looked at him aghast. 

"You dare speak to the prince like he was a common criminal? If you want your miserable horse just say so!"

The Legend of Time

Arvindian Version


In my world, much as on earth, there are certain myths that are common to all the countries, though with noticeable variations. On earth, we have creation and flood 'myths', all stemming of course from the great Truth of the Creation and Flood. We also have 'tales' such as Cinderella, which can be found in many different variations in almost every culture of the world. In just the same way, the legend of Time is found in all the southwestern part of the world dimension of Heszeret, and possibly elsewhere.

Hello everyone,

here is another story. I have finished the story but do not want to overwhelm you, so here are the first two chapters.

Enjoy! :D


Chapter One

What started It All


Once upon a time there lived a prince named Robert. He had never loved anything in his life. He hated his books (but he read them anyway to pass the time of day), he hated his horse, his slaves, his sword, his kingdom, even his wealth (because it did nothing but buy more hated things). 

Sliding Down the Mountain

Well, since I have just joined apricotpie, I don't have anything new to post. So, I am just going to post the first poem that I ever wrote. Hope you'll like it!

Sliding Down the Mountain

When I climb a big
Hill, I am a mountain climber
So high on the top. Just before I
Slide down, I grip my sled and
Off I go as fast as a flash!

On the way down, I am a
Silver bird skimming o'er
Smooth snow.

My flight must end and I
Dig my feet into the snow.
A fine spray of
Sparkling flakes,
Dusts me from head to toe.
