Many years, decades, centuries, it doesn’t matter. New to this world was a naïve and curious creature, who knows nothing about himself except for his name, Kaleb. He has no idea how he came to this world, nor where he came from. All he does is explore and hunt, and perhaps collect dropped items, whether they would be weapons, jewelry, or even shoes. These items would always come from these bipedal beings that would trudge through the forests on their own or with a companion. Whatever these creatures were, they incited Kaleb’s curiosity.

Never did he reveal himself to these beings, believing that they would run away without even giving him a chance, just like how other animals would, whether he wanted to eat them or not. But one day, the naga was noticed by a lovely maiden, who was out and escorted by two armored men protectively staying close to her, wielding their large shields and long swords. She was adorned in a black dress concealed by an ivory colored coat, and she was very lovely. Her skin was peach and her hair was long and flowing like golden wheat, but had a tarnish of red beneath. Locks of her hair were intertwined on her chest to form a braid and it laid just below a golden necklace adorned with small triangles. The first time she saw him with her amber eyes, she had a look of surprise and interest, then a smile formed on her lips as she raised a hand to lower her defenses.

The woman approached the large creature, who was flabbergasted that she would even dare come near a terrifying monster such as himself. He stood tall and looked down upon her, swallowing nervously while trying not to scare her, not that she was terrified to begin with.
“Hmm.” She backed away a couple of steps to get a better look at the naga, resting her hand beneath her chin while she pondered to herself, her guards still making sure that the monster doesn’t try anything to hurt the young lady.
“Do you speak?” she asked the snake creature, to which he responded with a nod. “Really, now? State your name, please.” The woman said in a demanding but not too intimidating manner.

“K-Kaleb.” He stuttered, turning his gaze away from the human.
“Are you afraid of me, Kaleb?” she asked the naga. “Or rather confused as to why I am not afraid of you?”
The snake being didn’t respond, pursing his lips.
“You have nothing to worry about, Kaleb.” She reached a hand out but did not take his hand. That was his choice for the matter. “My name is Gytha, Queen of Ire Suns.”
“Ire Suns?” Kaleb blinked, slowly taking her hand. “Is this what this world is called?”
“No.” Gytha chuckled as she tugged his arm gently, allowing the snake creature to follow her. “My, you certainly have a lot to learn.”

Ever since that day, Gytha gave Kaleb a place to live in her castle and treated him with kindness as they spent time together. And one day, the two were walking in her gardens when she tried to pick one of her roses, but pricked her finger in the process.
“You’re bleeding.” Kaleb leaned down and held her wounded hand up to his face.
“It’s nothing, Kaleb. You need not worry about…” she tried to take her hand back but Kaleb didn’t let go. Instead, he gave her reddened fingertip a lick with his long tongue, disgusting her highness as she pulled hand out of his grasp herself.

“Good gracious, Kaleb. What on earth was….” The woman scolded before noticing that the wound had healed, to her shock. “H-How did you…”
“Forgive me for not telling you, Gytha.” The naga held his huge hands his chest and backed away slightly, not wishing to upset the queen even more. “It is a special technique of mine.”
“How did you know you could do that?” she asked in a gentler tone, now no longer angry at him.
“I tried it on my finger.” He explained. “Usually, my wounds heal faster, but not in an instantaneous rate. I then tested it out with a wounded deer and it confirmed my suspicions.”
Gytha was still surprised by this sudden discovery, but then shrugged it off with a smile and reached up to give Kaleb a kiss on the cheek, causing the monster to blush.
“Thank you, my treasure.” She caressed his hand, Kaleb looking away in a bashful manner.

Days later, Kaleb was now in the gardens by himself, watching over the ducks swimming nearby a river. Across it, he noticed a hooded figure tossing crumbs of bread to the little ducklings, tilting his head as he curiously stared. The figure lifted their head to reveal a young maiden with an undetermined hair and eye color as the shadows of her hood slightly concealed them. Seeing the creature, she appeared frightened and scared at the sight of him, which Kaleb found hurtful.
“Please…” the sorrowful monster said, hissing his lines. “Do not be afraid of me.”
“Y-You talk.” The woman responded, now more curious about the snake monster. “Who are you, and what are you doing in the queen’s garden?”
“I live here.” Kaleb explained.
“Live here? With Queen Gytha?” she tilted her head and smiled a bit. “Huh. I guess there is some kindness to her after all.”

Her last words rose Kaleb’s suspicions, but before he could ask, the naga was called upon by a royal servant to tell him that supper’s ready, and not to keep her highness waiting for she had something special to show him. Nodding, Kaleb turned to the hooded lady to bid his farewells.
“Listen, I would like to see you again.” Kaleb smiled. “I would love to know what the other humans in this kingdom are like.”
“Of course.” The maiden smiled. “Though it shouldn’t be my permission you should be asking to see the rest of this kingdom. Try asking the Queen. Perhaps she may allow you to meet some of us.”
“I shall.” Kaleb nodded before turning to depart to the dining room. While on his way, Kaleb realized that ever since he had been invited to live in Gytha’s castle, he hadn’t been outside of the place, other than the gardens. He never felt that he wasn’t allowed to leave, but it was probably because of all the luxury and comfort that the castle had provided him. Then again, he has never been treated with such generosity in his entire life.

Arriving at the dining hall, Kaleb found Gytha welcoming him with open arms.
“Ah, Kaleb. You’re just in time.” Gytha smiled before moving out of the way to reveal a gift she had brought him, a large black coat covered in blue and green patterns in form of snakes. The naga was stunned, picking up the coat and admiring it, seeing how much detail was put into making this.
“Gytha, this is…” a smile formed on Kaleb’s lips.
“Go on. Put it on.” Her highness gestured with her amber eyes. He does so and looks at his sleeved arms. It felt so nice and warm to wear.

Leaning down, Kaleb kissed Gytha’s forehead and gazed into her eyes.
“I love it, Gytha.” The snake smiled, feeling more content with his life than ever before.

But sufficient to say, it will not last for him.

The next day while he was slithering through the halls of the castle, Kaleb heard yelling coming from beneath the floors. Concerned, he followed the noises to find a trap door hidden beneath the bricks and took them apart to go in. What he discovers is a dark pathway lit by torches, revealing some metal bars with depressed looking folks laying behind them. His attention turned back to the yelling and he made his way further and further as the shouting became louder and louder. To his discovery, he found Gytha herself staring down at a prisoner being held at the arms by two guards. He recognized the prisoner as the maiden he encountered the previous day, watching with shock as he saw his queen holding her captive.

“I haven’t even touched him!” the maiden shouted, full of anger and frustration as she tried to fight back. “This is unfair arrest and I demand a good reason for this!”
“You have seen too much of him.” The queen coldly stated, glaring at the woman. “He is not to leave the castle walls until I see fit. How dare you try to steal my treasure.”

“What is this?”
Everyone turned to see Kaleb, Gytha being the most surprised to see him.
“Kaleb. You’re not supposed to be here.” She huffed, upset and anxious.
“What are you doing to this young woman?” Kaleb demanded.
“Kaleb, go back to your room this instant. I must deal with this… spy.”
“Spy?” the naga raised a brow, turning to the maiden.
“She came to try and steal you away from here.” Gytha explained in the most convincing way she could. “I’m merely stopping her from going forward with her plans.”

“Lies! All lies!” the prisoner shouted, now fighting more spontaneously than before. “I never even knew about this until yesterday!”
“Silence!” Gytha spat, turning to the prisoner. “You are to spend the rest of your days rotting away in this dungeon! You shall never see the light of day again!”

“No!” Kaleb protested. “Gytha, please! You can’t do this!”
“I have to, for your own safety. Come along now, Kaleb.” Gytha turned to leave.
Suddenly, the hooded maiden stomped on the guards’ feet, causing them to yell out in pain and release the woman, who ran past the queen and the snake creature straight up the trap door.
“Find her! Arrest that woman!” the golden haired queen commanded her guards. “Have the entire kingdom looking for her!”

The guards ran to the exit while Gytha waved her arm at Kaleb, gesturing him to follow her. To his reluctance, he complied and left the dungeon with her, looking at Gytha and wondering if she was hiding something from him.
“Gytha…” Kaleb uttered.
“What?” she snapped, startling Kaleb.
“N-Never mind…” he averted his gaze, to which the queen sighed.
“I’m sorry, Kaleb.” She massaged her temples. “I’m just trying to protect you.”
“I understand.” He looked back at her, staring into her amber eyes. She gave him a reassuring smile and held his hand, taking him back to his chambers to rest.

There was no word of the runaway maiden for days, and Kaleb, unsure if the maiden was truly a spy or not, was nevertheless worried of what may happen. What if she really was innocent, and it was all a misunderstanding between her and the queen? But if so, why did Gytha arrest her the next day? Was the alleged spy trying to sneak into the castle? And how did Gytha know that the maiden was trying to steal Kaleb? What reason would she have for him?

Pondering about all these questions, the snake man licked his lips instinctively before looking down at his tongue. And then a different thought hit him…

The snake creature slithered near Gytha’s library, where a single guard entered with some news to deliver for the queen. The naga remained inconspicuous while he listened and watched, wanting to know what’s going on.
“Disappeared into the forests, you say?” Gytha sounded annoyed, unable to believe the news.
“Yes. We followed her as far as we could, but a number of our guards were killed and we had to move out.” He said somberly, like he witnessed something horrid and was going through the difficulty of getting over it.
“Killed by what, exactly?” she looked out the window nonchalantly.
“We don’t know, but whatever it was, it tore our men apart.”
“Well, I hope what you say is true because if so, we’ll allow whatever killed my men handle her instead.” Gytha turned and glared at the guard, stroking the handle of a dagger on her desk. “And if not, I will be handling your head.”

“Y-Yes, your highness.” The guard said hesitantly.
“And make sure to keep a close eye on my Kaleb. He found my dungeon and gave my prisoner the opportunity to escape.” She heeded as she looked down at her book and turned the pages before she winced and swiftly taking her hand back, looking at her finger to see she got a papercut. “She almost gave myself away to my precious treasure. Do you know what would happen should he try to leave?”
“Yes, my liege.” The soldier bowed before her highness. “We know how important Kaleb is for us all.”
“Very good. You are dismissed. Be gone.”

The soldier slowly backed to the door, prompting Kaleb to hide within the shadows until the soldier had left the room. The naga was now more suspicious than ever of Gytha. She’s hiding something from him, and everybody in this castle knows, including the guard. Stealthily, Kaleb followed the man through the halls, keeping himself crouched and silent as he crawled towards his target. The guard looked behind him when he felt that he wasn’t alone, but didn’t see anything or anyone… until he turned back around.

Before he could react, the guard was coiled up in a black snake tail adorned with green and blue stripes, the tip covering his mouth to prevent yelling. What he saw was a scowling, scaly beast glaring at the human with its river blue eyes. The monster took the guard somewhere far away from Gytha’s library and anyone who might hear them, looking around to make sure nobody spotted him.

“Call for help, lie to me, and you will never breathe again.” Kaleb threatened the guard as he slowly removed his tail from his mouth, keeping his tail’s grip around the man’s neck as he stared into the terrified man’s eyes. “What is the queen hiding from me, and why did she arrest that lady from the other day?”

“Sh-She tried to steal something from the queen. We were only doing as we’re….” The guard got choked as the snake got angrier.
“You’re lying.” Kaleb hissed.
“Okay, the queen wanted to get rid of her because she saw you and wanted to silence her!” the guard confessed. “She didn’t want her prize to ever be seen by any other commoner!”
“Why? Why is she being so secretive of me?” the snake tightened his tail’s grip slightly.
“You’re what’s needed for our future plans.” He explained. “With you, we could fight off our enemies and heal our wounds!”

“So she did have something in mind for me.” He thought to himself, then let go of the guard and inhaled through his nostrils, taking in the man’s scent.
“I have your scent, so don’t even think about telling anyone.” He threatened before slithering off to confront Gytha, who had been calling for the naga.

“Ah, there you are, Kaleb.” The queen smiled up at the creature, holding her wounded finger. “I’ve been looking all over for you. Come in.”
She welcomed the beast into the library, where the queen rummaged through the shelves to look up some books. The snake creature noticed her paper cut finger before turning his attention to her.

“Cut yourself?” he asked her highness, who turned and looked her hand.
“Ah, yes. Nasty paper cut. It’s nothing important.” She smiled and went back to searching for books. “Now, then. What story would you like me to tell?”
“I’d be more interested in knowing what you told the guard about me.” He scowled and noticed that the queen stopped looking through the books, slowly turning to Kaleb with a blank expression.
“And what would you like to know, my Kaleb?”
“Why I am forbidden from leaving the castle grounds.”
To that answer, Gytha chortled to herself as leaned against the book shelf.
“I never said you weren’t allowed to leave.” She smirked. “And besides, is it smart to leave the castle and allow the commoners to see you as you are, ridiculing you and calling you a monster?”

The naga furrowed his brow, slightly baring his teeth.
“I’m merely protecting you, my treasure.” She continued. “Still, you could ask me to….”
“What did you mean when you said the lady nearly gave yourself away to me?” he asked, catching her off-guard. “Does it have something to do with how you treat your kingdom?”

The queen sighed and brushed her blonde hair back.
“Well, so much for the sentimentality.” She said with a smug smile. “Shame on you, Kaleb. Spying on the person who took you in and gave you luxury. Is that really any way to thank me?”
“Explain why you took me in.” he demanded.
“Because I figured that a monstrous creature like you would be of use to me.” She said casually, gently rubbing her thumb over her paper cut. “Surprisingly, you were of more use to me than I thought. With your spit, you could heal not only my wounds, but also my staff. Think of all the wars we could win with you. Nothing could stop us with you on our side.”

“That’s not the only reason you want to keep me.” His gaze darkened, his tail slithering up near her leg.
“Kill me, and the entire kingdom goes to ruin.” She replied. “Without an heir to the throne, my entire domain will fall into chaos. And even then, you will be hunted down to no end. Is that how you want to live the rest of your life?”

His tail stopped where it was and the snake man huffed.
“However, since you’re so curious, I’ll tell you anyways, my treasure.” She walked over to her chair. “Because you’ve managed to heal my wounds, I wondered if there was something else about you that could benefit me quite well.” She looked over at the knife on the table, then to Kaleb’s enormous snake body, a devious smirk forming on her lips. “Yes… I wonder.”

Kaleb’s eyes widened slightly, knowing what she is implying and got up to leave. Realizing what he may plan to do, the queen got up and ran for him, but he was so swift that she managed to lose him at an even pace. In a panic, Gytha ran back to her library and opened a window to call to her guards.

“All of you, find Kaleb!” the queen shouted. “He is planning to escape! Make sure to bring him back to me immediately!”
As Kaleb slithered his way through the castle, he managed to find the garden exits but found that it had gotten heavily guarded, so in a leap of faith the naga fought his way through stabs and arrow shots before managing to get out easily, slithering back into the forests that was his real home. Alone in the woods, Kaleb pulled out arrows from his body, wincing at every pull he did as his blue eyes were drenched with tears. He had been manipulated and tricked by the very creatures he was anxious of, feeling like a complete idiot for trusting them.


***

Natalee felt pity for Kaleb as he explained his reason not to trust the humans.
“All those times she called me her treasure, it all started to make sense to me. I realized that if I stayed with this… mad woman, I would be fulfilling her own selfish desires no matter how much she hurts me. Who knows what else she wanted from my body. My sweat, my blood, my tears. Either way, I wouldn’t allow her to take more from me.”

“What happened afterwards?” the woman asked. “Did she forget about you?”
“Hah. She never even gave up searching for me.” He rubbed his face. “She had the entire kingdom to hunt me down should they find me, and bring me to her alive. I had to get as far away as possible, but no matter where I went, I was always hunted down by humans. Some have tried to trick me, pretending that they had no idea who I was and felt bad for me, but I learned the hard way to never trust any human.”

“Gee… that really sucks.” Nat looked down at her feet. “And I guess it never stopped with you, especially with those scientists.”
“Yeah.” Kaleb sighed. “And you can guess why I tried to kill you and your brother that day.”
“I understand.” She looked at the raven-haired man. “We all have our reasons to protect ourselves.”
There was a long, awkward pause between the two.

“Do you want the rest of your sandwich?” the brunette asked getting up from the bed. “I’ll bring it for you.”
“It’s fine, Natalee.” Kaleb took her hand and brought her back to her seat. “I just… need some company. It’s been so long since I’ve had any.”
The young lady smiled and hugged the guy, wanting to help him feel better. “Okay, then.”

Kaleb hugged the young lady back, bringing her down with him as they both laid on the bed in each other’s arms, having only each other’s company.
“Nat…”
“Yes, Kaleb?”
“… thank you for understanding.”
“No problem.” She smiled and closed her eyes.

Natalee stumbled upon a near unconscious Kaleb in front of a small house and helps carry him up, holding his arm over her shoulders. “Oh, Kaleb…” she pitied the injured man, helping him back to her house. It took them a while, but the two managed to return home safely. As soon as they went inside, Kaleb was brought to the bathroom where the human female drew a bath for him, running her hand under the water to check its warmth.

Because the raven-haired soul didn’t have the strength to help himself, Natalee took off his clothes for him, blushing with embarrassment. Ever since he had been brought back to her house, Kaleb hadn’t expressed any reaction to all of this. It was hard to tell as his hair was over his eyes, his emotions concealed from Natalee.
“You’re going to be fine, Kaleb.” She carefully set him in the bathtub and took some soap with a loofa to wash the poor guy.

As she washed him, Natalee could feel his body trembling and heard sniffles from him. Looking over the man, Nat was dismayed to see that he was crying, a stream of clear liquid dripping down from his clenched eyes. Putting the loofa down, the brunette rubbed the distraught man’s bare back, trying to console him.
“Sshhh, it’s okay.” She spoke gently to him. “I know it’s hard for you.”

“I hate this.” Kaleb finally said to the girl, his words full of torment and pessimism. “I hate every second of being a human. My body is weak, I cannot eat larger prey, I can barely move fast enough. I…!”
Baring his teeth, his body trembled more with anger, his fists clenched so hard that it hurt his fingers. “I just want to return… back to what I was.”

Natalee felt awful. She wish there was some way she could help the poor guy, but was reluctant about doing that. What would happen if she did manage to give him what he wanted? Would he be grateful to her, or try to eat her like he did before? And even if he did spare her, would he do the same to the rest of the humans? Kaleb has probably killed a lot of people in his years, and it’s possible he may continue doing so.

Unable to do anything else to help him, Nat picked up the loofa and resumed in scrubbing her suffering houseguest. The best she could do was clean him, anyways. Suddenly, his hand grabbed her arm holding the loofa, its grip stopping her scrubbing but wasn’t holding her tight enough to hurt her.
“I appreciate your concern, human..” the man responded despondently. “But you shouldn’t be caring about me, not after what I tried to do to you and your friend.”

“You mean… on that day you saved me and my brother from those scientists.” She stated, remembering her recently deceased sibling. Kaleb’s eyelids closed, realizing that what he almost did could’ve caused incredible grief to Natalee’s family.
“And that I almost devoured you, and threatened the two of you.” He pointed out the details even further, reminding her of his true intentions before. The man chuckled a bit, finding the irony in all of this.

“It’s strange that the person I tried to eat is now the one who’s watching out for me.” He couldn’t help but smile slightly.
“Well, regardless of what you did, I still want to help you.” Natalee took her arm out of his grasp and picked up the loofa. “I don’t see you as a monster, but… to be honest, you’re more like a wounded wolf. It’s kind of hard to explain.”
“No need.” He raised his hand. “I think I know what you mean.”

As he was being washed, Kaleb could smell something somewhat familiar in his surroundings, reminding him of blue and sand for some reason.
“Sea water.” He commented.
“Hm? Oh, the smell’s coming from the soap I’m using.” Nat explained. “It’s made of sea salt and coconut. Very good for your skin.”
Kaleb’s smile broadened and his eyelids closed, the aroma filling him with tranquility and peace. Nat couldn’t help but grin as well to see the guy finally feel relaxed. Now she wonders if Kaleb enjoys going to the beach, or that there might be one near the forests that she may not know of. Oh, well. These answers may come to her at some point.

After the bath, Nat took Kaleb’s dirty clothes away and gave him new ones. This time it was a grey shirt with a pair of blue jeans that fitted him quite well. The woman and Kaleb went to the kitchen, and the raven-haired young man settled by the table while Natalee took out some stuff out of the fridge.
“You ever had a sandwich before?” Natalee asked her houseguest, who tilted his head.
“What’s a sandwich?”
The brunette smiled and shook her head, knowing that she might get a response like that. She prepared some bread and laid the spread consisting of ham, cheese, mayo, and tomatoes. Kaleb merely observed her actions, watching in fascination how the human made the food.

She placed the plate on the table in front of Kaleb, and he continued to stare at it curiously. He turned his attention to Natalee and watched how she ate her meal by simply holding the entire thing and taking a bite out of it. Seems easy enough. Looking down, Kaleb picked up the sandwich with both hands and took a huge bite out of it, leaving only half now. Natalee was surprised to witness this.
“Wow, now that was some bite.” The girl laughed while Kaleb raised an eyebrow at her.
“I was trying to stuff the whole thing into my mouth.” He replied after swallowing. “This sandwich is extremely insignificant compared to what I normally eat. To me, this is more like a small snack.”

“I’m not surprised.” She smiled at Kaleb, growing more fascinated with him. “I’ll bet you could eat an entire hippo whole.”
“Ridiculous.” Kaleb smirked. “I would have to be a giant in order to do that.”
“What’s your limit, then?” Natalee tilted her head in a curious manner.
“A few bears come to mind.” He stroked his chin while he pondered to himself. “Though, I can’t say they’re my favorite. They’re hard to kill. Still, they are quite filling.”
Kaleb felt proud of himself in that moment, until it gradually disappeared as he realized his current predicament.
“Unfortunately, the largest I can manage to eat is this…” the distraught man looked down at his plate, glaring at the rest of his meal. “…sandwich.”
Natalee frowned, turning her gaze away trying to think of something to say.
“Maybe this is all just temporary, Kaleb.” The kind woman smiled at the false human. “Who knows? Perhaps it’ll wear off soon.”
“I admire your words, human. But I doubt this is the case.” He looked at her with his sad blue eyes, seeming troubled but also thankful to the girl for trying her best. “I’ve only been like this for almost two days but it feels like an eternity. I do not know what I have done to deserve this.”

Nat’s fingers fiddled with each other, nervous on what she was about to say.
“Well… you do eat humans.” She complied, Kaleb looking confused.
“And what does that have to do with it?” he stated as if what he had been doing isn’t something that big a deal.
“Kaleb, why else were you turned into a human?” she pointed out. “If it had nothing to do with that, you could’ve been turned into a mouse or something worse.”
“And what’s worse than being a human?” his tone was dark and stern, his gaze turning into an icy glare.

“What’s worse? Anything!” she argued. “What is your problem with humans?”
“Is it not obvious?” Kaleb sat up straight. “Your kind is the most corrupt I’ve ever seen. The wars they have caused, the cruelty in their souls, the way they betray one another for their own selfish needs.”
“Is that really how you see us?” Natalee huffed, finding his reasons behind his hatred immature. “We’re not all evil, Kaleb.”
“Well, I have yet to come across one that is good.” He crossed his arms. “The only good humans I’ve ever come across are children, but even they aren’t safe from ending up like the rest, as I have seen with some disrespectful little brats.”

“Then what about me?” she asked him, a serious look in her gaze. “Have I ever done anything evil?”
“You might have.” He outright said in her face. “For all I know, your kindness could be an act. Any normal human would have killed me on the spot after what I’ve done….”
“And I haven’t done a thing to kill you.” Natalee scowled at him.
“Yet.” He ended her sentence with a sneer.

Glaring, Natalee got up from her chair and stormed off to her room, her eyes shrouded in shadows preventing Kaleb from seeing her emotions. At the slam of the door, the raven-haired young man gave an annoyed sigh, alone with his thoughts while he stared at the brunette’s half-eaten meal.
“That woman, acting so childish.” He thought to himself, his scowl then turning into a frown. “But then again… Am I any better?”

He got up from his chair and headed to the living room, where he could hear sniffles and coughs coming from the door leading to the bedroom. This, in turn, concerned Kaleb as he headed towards it and placed his hand on the knob, but hesitated as to not disrupt her privacy. Kaleb removed his hand from the knob and knocked his knuckles on the wooden door three times.
“Miss… Natalee?” he spoke the gentlest way he could. “Permission to come in. I wish to apologize for what I said.”

Kaleb got no response from her, but he opened the door anyways to see the young lady sitting on her bed silently. Natalee turning her attention to the man, tears streaming down her reddened cheeks like water streaming down a river.

“Listen, I apologize for being so ungrateful to you.” He settled by her side on the comfy bed.
“It’s okay, Kaleb.” She sniffled, turning away from him. “I’m sorry I wasn’t kind enough to you. I was so angry at you when I first brought you to my home.”
“I understood your reason to be angry. I did try to eat you, after all.” He chuckled nervously, Natalee doing the same.
“Yeah… yeah, I guess so.” The brunette blushed, rubbing her arm. There was an awkward silence in the room until Kaleb broke the silence with a sigh. He looked like he was making a decision on what to do, until he decided that she should know.

“I was betrayed… by a human.” The man confessed, his voice deep and solemn and his blue eyes full of shame and anguish. Natalee noticed his feelings through his tone and posture, then sat up straight to listen.

“It was a long time ago….”
Giggling Ghost by Jasmination
Giggling Ghost
Based on a random doodle I did. I call this little fella a Giggling Ghost because its face looks like it's giggling. However, it's actually a mask concealing its true face. He's not malevolent, but it quite the mischievous little tyke, liking to fool around and pull pranks.

Eenie meenie mieny mo,
which one is the real Echo?

Doing more of this practicing stuff so I watched a series of tutorials by Sycra. I learned things like how to make your paint bucket completely fill up where you want, how to replace colors without having any trouble of making a mess, and how to make copies of your drawings including the colors and effects.
Here's the playlist if you wanna try it. Note that you must have Photoshop in order to do this.

My thoughts on Civil War

Journal Entry: Mon May 9, 2016, 3:13 PM
Warning: Spoilers up ahead. You have been warned, now you may stop or proceed.

Thought provoking, smart, and fun. Though very long, I had fun with the battle against our heroes and our introductions to new ones like Black Panther and Spiderman.

They make good valid points to both sides of the pro and anti registration laws, but I'm on Team Cap as:

-Being a superhero is vigilantism, so of course it's against the law, and you don't have to be on the side of the law to save lives.

-They won't have the freedom to go save people and have to follow orders before doing anything like they're dogs.

-And while I know that people died during the times the Avengers fought against Big Bads, of course casualties will happen, and if they weren't doing what they were doing then EVERYBODY ON EARTH WOULD BE DEAD! I believe that's a higher death count in comparison.


Sorry, Tony. As much as I sympathize with you, it was your fault for creating Ultron behind everybody's backs and you should take responsibility, not shift it on the government.

Also, AAAAHHH SPIDEY WAS AMAZING IN THIS!!! AHHHH PETER PARKER'S ADOWABLE!!!

Ahem, anyways they nailed the character of Spiderman perfectly. They have a better explanation how a poor boy like Peter gets his suit updated to look like how he always had in every media he's portrayed. Tony Stark updated it. Simple and more sensical. It also explains how Spidey's eyes can move. Seriously, this occurs in the comics sometimes, and on Spectacular Spiderman.

My biggest gripe is with Aunt May: she is hot. Not that I have a problem with that, but when you're used to the elderly one and she's suddenly Benjamin Button'd into a MILF, or an AILF, then there are gonna be some awkward levels rising. How do I make this more awkward? The actress is Robert Downey Jr's ex... yeah....

What I liked is Peter's chemistry with Tony. They have so much in common. Their love for science, their vigilantism, dead parents, and how they feel that it is their fault for letting others die, and if you're not familiar with Peter's backstory, then you ain't a dedicated Spidey fan, man. I now wanna see more of Peter and Tony together. They've got a father-son vibe going on here. :D

I'm not familiar with Black Panther, nor did I grow up with the character, but I do respect him as a character. He starts off full of revenge until he realizes that he is letting the anger consume him, and does not kill the villain responsible for his father's death and instead turns him in. That's why I respected him more than Tony in the movie.

Near the end where Tony finds out that Bucky killed his parents, I felt his pain and anger as he watched his parents be brutally murdered, but what I didn't like was how stubborn he was acting while Rogers was trying to reason with him that Bucky was brainwashed by HYDRA, and he wasn't aware of killing them.

Think back to the original Avengers movie when Loki took control of Hawkeye and Erik Selvig. Tony knew this and he didn't send them to jail since they weren't aware of what they were doing, so why wouldn't he think this when he knew that Bucky was brainwashed? HYDRA is to blame for the death of Tony's parents, not Barnes. 

Speaking of Loki, the villain in this movie, Zemo, while not as great as Loki... and this is probably gonna bite me in the ass for saying this... was better at turning the Avengers against each other than Loki. Zemo's plan succeeded, and he didn't have to rely on the Hulk's rage, but Iron Man's. I did actually feel sorry for his loss of his family in the Sokovia incident, and his plan actually worked in the end. Iron Man and Captain America are no longer friends, and the avengers are still split. I don't even know where Black Widow went, but let's hope it's her own movie.

Don't worry, the ones that Cap saves are safe with T'Challa. And considering that he is the richest comic book superhero (I'm serious. This guy's even richer than Batman. He's a freakin' trillionaire!), they're in way better hands.

Also, Ant-Man becomes a giant. And all the G/T fans rejoiced as a superhero giant finally makes his appearance. 8D
