Cat and MousePlaintive mewling echoed throughout the trashed alley, fires flickering unattended and casting grim shadows on shambling corpses. A crash sounded above and a woman fell from a second story window to the concrete below, landing on the scattered broken glass with a grimace. Shaking off the pain, she looked back up at the building, wide blue eyes searching…
“S.T.A.R.S…” A tall figure stood, form highlighted menacingly from the flames behind him. As it spotted her crouched form below, the tyrant wasted no time in jumping down, watching the woman as she scrambled to get up, blood running in small rivulets down her exposed legs.
Jill bit back a hiss of pain, pointing her handgun at the monstrous beast before her, taking a few steps back while Nemesis followed her movements, shrugging its shoulders and rushing forward.

Nec Aspera Terrent Ch. 1Leon,
Last time we talked, you mentioned you’d be off for annual leave soon. Well, could you do me a favor if you don’t have any other plans?

The air was also sluggishly heavy, dulling the senses to a slowly-blended calm engendered by the heat of St. Othniel's southerly climate.
At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.
"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
