Suburban Mermaid Ch 7 FinalThe doctor interviewed Celia for almost an hour. I've never heard of an interview taking so long. They must've got caught up talking encyclopedias or something. That's all Celia had done since I met her, after all. Always reading encyclopedias, the dictionary - a thesaurus! - you name it. Sure, she was a word wizard, but she still had no idea how to tie everything together.Suburban Mermaid Ch 7 Final by Agent505
I wondered how well she was charming the doctor.
My attention drifted between those thoughts and the magazines from last decade that dotted the reception area. They were mostly copies of Popular Science and Wired. A whole pile of them were in the corner near an old couch.
Suddenly I heard a rumble in the building. Then I noticed out the window - we were on the second floor - the building across a large courtyard had things flying out of it. Ballistics?
I stood and, like a fool, stared out the window. Do I interupt the doctor?
A blue lig
Suburban Mermaid Ch 6To make a long story short, we became settled into number 11 within the next several days. Celia continued to come with me to my classes, opting to spend as much time in the library as possible. She stole my study guides and moved onto general history, sports and just about any topic that came up during our daily conversations. She was a fast learner.Suburban Mermaid Ch 6 by Agent505
By the end of that first week, we finally convinced Brooklyn to let us order pizza. That Friday, after my shift at the bookstore, I drove home and barely beat the pizza guy who had arrived with two large pizzas, one a supreme and the other a Hawaiian combo. Along with bread sticks, we ate well.
After a second week, however, we determined that my income was limited. Even without having to pay rent, it seemed it was too easy to splurge now that we had access to a full kitchen. I also might have gained a few pounds, but I didn't let on.
When a job opportunity came up at the store, Celia
Suburban Mermaid Ch 5Celia was reading Ambrielle's running magazines when I fell asleep watching Sportcenter. Maybe sports bored me, though I couldn't say because I had spent so little time watching TV the past few years. I had watched a few shows on Netflix for a time, but watching them on my smartphone proved to be more trouble than it was worth. The phone batteries drained quickly, and the small screen seemed to hurt my eyes more than anything, especially at night.Suburban Mermaid Ch 5 by Agent505
Ambrielle might've returned before Brooklyn arrived, but by two o'clock Celia gently prodded me and roused me, allowing me to discover there was a visitor.
A taller, silver haired woman with crows feet around her eyes but little else in evidence of aging was standing in the room. She looked like a woman who had earned everything she had - her hands were tough and her stance was firm. She could pass as a thirty something wonder, had her hair not been streaked with violet strands from the roots of her forehe
The Nemaris Islands have been avoided for centuries. Those who have adventured upon their inviting shores have fought to escape... the few fortunate survivors have returned with stories of great treasure, but also frightful demons, terrible wizards and tricky traps.

Personal Quote: Keep out of the shadows.
For generations, the legend of the unicorn has floated around the collective conscience of the people who live on the continent of Crellan. They live out their lives, unaware how true these legends have been. Nor have they known of a great struggle - a struggle between an eternal wizard and those same guardians of the forest. When a young woman becomes entangled in an ancient conflict, she must leave her home and learn to overcome her reservations of the outside realm and what it means to be part of a larger world.

Librarians, Dusty, possess a vast store of politeness. These are people who get asked regularly the dumbest questions on God's green earth. These people tolerate every kind of crank and eccentric and mouth-breather there is.

FINAL RECORD: 11-5
A heartbreaking end to the season. We always seem to lose on a field goal. Lame.
Oh well. The team motto still stands: There's always next season. Sigh.
