The Big Four: The Rise of the Darkness (Ch. 17)
Jack now seriously doubted that Katelynn knew where she was going. When she showed up, she looked like she hasn't slept for two days…and hungry. Every once and a while, he'd hear a small growl come from the red-brunette. "Is she sure that Mor'du was this way, Hic?"
Hiccup shrugged his shoulders and passed on the question for Jack, "Hey, Katelynn?"
Katelynn looked over her shoulder. "What?"
"You sure that Mor—I mean—the bear was this way?"
"I'm positive." Katelynn's attention went back ahead. "This was the road I took when I came to find you…by the way, 'Punzel said that there's three of you. Unless your…dragon counts as one, where's the other two?"
"Right behind you…" Jack muttered.
Merida shook her head. "She really doesn't know that we're here then."
Hiccup looked flustered. "Um…well…let's see—gods, how do I put this…?"
"You ramble a lot, you know that?" Katelynn interrupted Hiccup. She shook her head with a sm
The Big Four: The Rise of the Darkness (Ch. 8)
Jamie let out a long, suppressed sigh after Jack's long explanation. It just turned dark once he finished, Jamie and the others had to move to Jamie's room so his mom wouldn't get suspicious. "So Pitch is really back? With others?" Jack nodded. "What's going to happen? How are you going to fight them? Can you fight them? Will everyone stop Believing again? What if I stop Believing—?"
"Jamie!" Jack gripped onto one of Jamie's shoulder. "Calm down. You'll never stop Believing in us. Ever. And don't worry; we'll get rid of them."
"But—! What about them?" He gestured at Hiccup, Merida, and Rapunzel, who were too busy tinkering with the TV and some of Jamie's gaming systems to pay attention to the conversation. "Do they even know what they're up against?"
Jack glanced over to rest of the Four then shook his head. "I don't know…" He sighed and straightened back up to his feet. "The Guardians and I thought Pitch would be gone for at least another six hundred y
The Big Four: The Rise of the Darkness (Ch. 14)
The sun was on the horizon when Rapunzel thought it would be fun to get the whole square to dance when a small band passed by her while playing a small tune. It turned out that she was right, the Four had a blast! And so did the townspeople. Hiccup would trip on his feet every once and a while but kept to the rhythm of the music along with Merida, who surprised everyone with how well her dancing skills. Jack tried to resist, but someone pushed him in. He eventually ended up with Rapunzel because the dancing style was like square dancing mixed with an energized waltz. The ones who weren't dancing clapped to the beat. The music suddenly ended. The Four ended up in the center of all the dancers, ending it together. The dancers clapped and cheered gleefully until someone yelled, "It's time!" The crowd quickly peeled away and went into shops.
"Time for what?" Rapunzel wondered.
Jack looked back to the sun. It was almost gone and the stars started to appear. "I think it's time for the lanter

The long, dead tone on Jamie's cellphone was the only thing that sounded in his room. Jamie's face was ghost-white and was gripping onto his cellphone tightly. With a shaky voice, he whispered, "I-I have to go…"
"Go?" Hiccup repeated with a raised eyebrow. "But your friend told you not to."
"Plus whatever that roar belonged to, it sounded dangerous." Rapunzel added.
Merida walked over to Jamie and bent over to get eyelevel with him. "Jamie, we'll go to your friend's house to see if she's alright, okay?"
Jamie sniffed, "You will?"
Jack hesitated for a second then made a curt nod. "Course we will."
"We are?" Rapunzel asked behind clenched teeth. Jack gave her assuring yet serious look. "I mean…yes we are!"
"Where does she live?" Hiccup asked Jamie.
"Katelynn's house is about ten blocks away from here, on West Salem."
Jack smirked at Hiccup and shook his head. He grabbed Hiccup by his vest and dragged the young Viking behind him. "I know how to get there and I k
Teenage TaoismGiving birth is the closest I’d ever felt to dying.
Before that, my near death experiences had consisted only of my silent announcement of pregnancy—silent, being that my social media accounts were all deleted almost simultaneously and I never returned to school in the fall, saying without really saying that I had caught the malicious disease of “teenage pregnancy”. I’m sure the whisper spread in the hallways like the Bubonic Plague. That September, sitting at home on what would have been the first day of my senior year, I imagined friends I’d never talk to again saying “she was only seventeen, and so full of life!” at my absence in the cafeteria tables, as if they were attending my funeral instead of talking about me behind my back.
"Full of life," I had snorted then, folding a never ending stream of what had once been my own baby clothes. "Literally."
I walked around like a zombie for the months of my pregnancy, deciding t
