Tales of Time Chapter SevenAliens

Tammy is hiding.
She is crouched in a stable with her mother and brother.
Men come in and pound on the doors, causing her heart to race.
She can hear the heart beats of her family.
But soon, one of those hearts will stop.
Because of her.
They pound louder, and louder, and louder.
She lets out a peep, the smallest noise that she could make.
But it causes a landslide.
They rip open the door and everyone scre….
Tam shoots up from her pillow.
She sighs, wipes the sweat off her brow and throws herself back down.
She snuggles up with her pillow and wipes the tears from her eyes. She will never forget that day.
She sits up again, let’s face it, she’s not going to fall back asleep.
After she calms down, she looks over to the next bed and Tobey is still asleep of course.
They have both made it to age fourteen, which is impressive for that time. But the real question is if they will make it through the teenage years.
Tales Of Time Chapter SixThe Ancient Mansion
It has been a month since that fairy Marth has first come by. Since then, he has been coming over several times a week to help Salem with her training.
Salem uses the first half hour of her trainings to attempt fighting against the two of them by sitting on the floor and just pouting. But eventually Birdwing gets loud enough and threatens she can’t go out unless she trains so Salem gets up and has to do it.
She likes Marth a lot more as a teacher though. He seems less experienced but he is softer, kinder, definitely more emotional, and he actually praises her. He sure gets injured a lot so she doesn’t practice fighting with him, he just calls out things to do when he and Birdwing aren’t arguing.
Once she is released from her three hour training program, she runs faster than she did in practice toward the Tatitan forest. Birdwing only has her mouth dropped open and then swears she will make her train harder tomorrow for that.

(One year later)
On the edge of the desert there is a patch of cacti. The cacti are in nice little groups with some small, some large, some fat, some thin and so on. During the night you would think that it is just an odd grouping of cacti but alas it is special.
As the sun rises in the desert bringing heat to the land which cooled overnight, a little flash of light beams out of one of the cactuses, and goes to another cactus. Then another light, then another.
A trained eye would realize that these are desert fairies which live in cactuses. They work hard to find food for themselves and they are specialized, fighting fairies who are some of the most skilled among the pixie group.
But the only odd thing about this particular clan is their king is not even a desert fairy.
Enter-Marth. Marth is a dark fairy who got married to the desert fairy queen a long time ago. That may sound scary; oooo dark fairy. But Marth is not the poster chil

It is a bright and early fall morning at the Tatitan forest. The magnificent trees are becoming more beautiful day by day as their leaves change color before falling off, leaving a bare trunk.
The sun shines brightly into Tammy’s eyes through her window, rousing her from her dreams.
She sits up in her bed and rubs her eyes while smacking her lips. She looks over next to her and sees her brother Tobey is still asleep as usual. He is sleeping on his side in a ball with his hair in his face and mouth slightly open.
She throws her covers off of herself and steps into her silk slippers her nana gave to her for her eighth birthday, which was just five days ago.
She lets her braid out looking in the mirror, and watches as her long black hair with waves in it falls about her as she brushes it out. She splashes water on her face from the bowl by her bed and when no one is looking, uses her nightgown to dry her face off.
She hears someone walk
