DeedlitWhen Sheedra and Katyr met, there was great respect between them. That respect turned to love, and the two wild elves decided to pursue a family. They married, and started trying to have children. Every attempt failed, and the couple eventually gave up their dream of having children. They still loved each other, and wanted to stay married. After a massive celebration one night, Sheedra and Katyr were quite drunk and they went to their home and consummated their love. That night was the conception of their child. However, the next day, Katyr left their little tribe to deal with a personal vendetta of his. The orc who had killed his father had been spotted, and Katyr left to track it. He was gone for 3 weeks. When he came back, Sheedra was acting differently. He had his suspicions, but he didnt question his wife. Months passed, and it became clear that Sheedra was pregnant. She was utterly thrilled as she had been dreaming of this all her life. Katyr was happy too, but he still had
Face Like a StrangerTim rolled over in his bed to face his girlfriend, Kathy.
"Good morning," she cooed and softly kissed his nose. He smiled, but didn't respond. He yawned, stretched, and climbed out of bed. He began his morning routine as Kathy began hers.

Kathy arrived home right on time, at 5:30. She cheerfully fixed a small dinner for both Tim and herself. She didn't notice Tim's car pull up, nor did she notice Tim sitting in the front seat, fixing hi
Quality Time With Alien CowsKenneth sighed and sat down to another boring family dinner. He despised having the whole family together for family bonding time. Youd think in the 16 years of his life, if he had really wanted to bond with these people, he would have. But, no. Now they have these stupid dinners every month. As if that werent enough, his school had scheduled an improv show that night, and he couldnt go. Kenneth was furious, and tried to make it quite obvious by sulking in his chair all night long.
