29 February. Elysia stared at the mark, as she had countless times before. She had it since she was born; a birthmark that appeared within her first hour on this Earth. It was in black; all neat and tidy despite being nestled between the creases on her left wrist. “29 February”, she thou  Read More...

Now that he was waiting for his impending death, what was he supposed to do? He guessed he could just wait for death to knock on his door an  Read More...
