Dance With Me -15 by andrielisilien
Dance With Me -15

A scene from some little story I've been working on.  I'm so sappy :iconlazycryplz:  Someone help me...

I gasped at the sudden downpour of rain.  It started off small and within seconds it came down hard and fast.  At first I felt bad for the dress I was wearing but as the rain engulfed me I realized that now was too late to save it.  I thought to myself that I might as well enjoy being out in the storm.  The rain has always been a pleasant experience for me in the past.  Why not now?

For a few moments I closed my eyes and let my ears open to the sounds of the rain.  A breeze carried the dull roar of distant thunder and the air was full to burst with cascades.  My head tilted up to take in more.  I could feel tiny feet of rain drops dancing on my skin.  It tickled making me giggle.  I opened my eyes and thrust my arms out for a twirl.

Weston suddenly appeared by my side with his hand outstretched at me.  I had forgotten we were talking just moments ago.  He too was soaking wet but with a soft smile on his face.  His lips parted and my ears could barely hear him whisper above the pattering rain.

“Dance with me.”

I stopped.  For a brief moment I began to question myself on what I should do.  This-this wasn’t what I was expecting.  My heart sped up bit when I tried to imagine me dancing with him.  I… could I dance?  My eyes glanced from his expecting hand, to his face and back down.

It was in that moment I decided to push aside the feeling of doubt and obey his request.  Slowly, my cool hand slipped into his and I was pulled in.

Right away I recognized that the movement he led me in was a waltz.  1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3…  His feet counted the rhythm out and his arms guided me along.  The rain continued to fall on top of us but I soon forgot about it as Weston twirled me.

It had been so long since I had danced with another man; in fact I never have before in this way.   I could sense his confidence in leadership as he guided me through the steps.  I was being a bit clumsy but Weston was patient.  I even miscounted the steps and ruined the sequence he was putting together.  When I looked up to apologize Weston only grinned in that slightly amused way and repeated the pattern for me.  Pretty soon I picked it up with less and less errors each time till we were moving with ease.

Then, Weston took a different turn from the sequence and I found myself able to follow his lead.  I had now become a picture set into his frame for me to sit comfortably in.  There was such conviction in his guidance and I couldn’t help but smile.  It felt like we were floating now that I was comfortable enough to follow him.  In his hold I was able to sense gentleness to guide me but I also felt trust in that he wouldn’t let go.

Saint David's Day -15 by andrielisilien
Saint David's Day -15
I know this is super late ^^; as the national day of Wales is March 1st but better than never, right?

Lately I've been admiring the beautiful daffodils that are in bloom all over the place.  I like how vibrant the color is especially after a cold pale winter. Then I started to imagine how adorable Owen and Rees would be dozing in them :iconblushingplz:  I would die from the cuteness if I could find the little dears taking a nap like this.  I'm in a cutesy mood right now :aww:

So yeah, um... happy late Saint David's Day.  Can't wait till you know when ;P

Reference for the daffodils is here…

So I just discovered this fabulous horror game, Ib.  The story is mostly about trying to escape a haunted art museum alive.  Not only does the plot and characters interest me but all the different endings the player can get.  What can I say?  I'm loving this game. lardgrinn woo 
Waiting for 15 by andrielisilien
Waiting for 15

My version of my friend’s piece about her spooky encounter artful-dodgerette.deviantart.c…

I myself am in the neighborhood with this on my mind so I got adventurous.  I had some down time one day and had a go in finding this so-called haunted stage because what the heck?  I first entered through the front where the audience sits in this concert hall.  My heart did a flip as I saw a lonely light bulb in an ocean of a darkness.  Just as my friend described it cast a halo in the heavy darkness.  For a moment I felt a confirmation that my childhood fear of the dark isn’t quite gone.  I poked my head in but didn’t dare go any further alone.


I waited till I had a couple of my other friends with me, for moral support, to go back in there.  The doors to the stage are locked, I don’t know how this friend got behind there, but when I approached the curtain I could see another light dimly through it on the other side.  Oh boy, it is the light she saw!  My imagination is running wild with this.  My friend and I are going to venture together through her secret VIP entrance.  Hehehe, wish us luck.  Gonna catch us some ghosts! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It’s been a while since I wrote here and I thought I’d introduce you more to my sweet hamster.  :aww:

     1.       What is your pet’s name?  Her name is Pebbles.  It’s a name I discovered when I met a girl years whose name was Pebbles and I thought that was just adorable.

    2.       What kind of pet is it and what kind of breed?  Pebbles is a Syrian Hamster.  She is a good 6 inches long, so there is plenty of hamster to cuddle :3 (like a potato with fur).  Her hair is short and velvety smooth so I would say she is specifically a Fancy Hamster.  She is a solid dusty brown color with a white stripe on her chest.  Basically Pebbles looks just like a mouse, but super-sized with a tiny nub of a tail.

    3.       How long have you had your pet friend?  I got Pebbles last summer in late July.  I was going to wait till I switched apartments in August but I was too excited.

    4.       How did you get your pet?  I went searching at the local pet store here in town.  It’s a hole in the wall that is cramped with dozens of small pets.  I had been eying a new hamster family for a couple of weeks that were ready to be sold.  I made the decision by taking turns holding each baby hamster (I remember one screamed at being picked up and wouldn’t stop after being put down).  Pebbles was the only one in her color which I thought was unique.  …and she didn’t scream.

    5.       How old is your pet? Pebbles was roughly 3 or 4 weeks old when I got her.  The pet store couldn’t give me an exact date but by doing the math I estimate that she was born the first week of July.  I like to choose the 4th as her actual birthday.

    6.       What are some quirky things about your pet’s personality?  Pebbles is the very definition of mellow.  My nieces will manhandle her so much yet she won’t bite or even squeal.  She is so patience and sweet.  Sometimes she gets fidgety and doesn’t seem to get enough of playtime.  She loves to explore and go on adventures.  Another thing that I like is watching her stuff her cheek pouches.  Much like this hamster here… It is so darn cute and funny when she fills them to nearly bursting with food.  Once in a while I find her asleep in the corner with her cheeks still full.

    7.       What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?  Pebbles is my cuddle bug, even though she doesn’t always like to cuddle LOL or receive kisses.  She is very special and taking care of her is hardly a chore.  I love going to thrift stores looking for random junk that she could use as toys or props in her cage.  Even making toys for her out of cardboard is fun and utilizes my creativity.  I just smother her with love… and she puts up with it.  I know that hamsters don’t live long, sadly, so I make sure each month is special as they go by.

    8.       What are some of your favorite past times with your pet? I would say the first thing in the morning when I open my closest and see Pebbles in her cage... or more like when I can’t see Pebbles because she is buried somewhere asleep.  It is so cute and funny to find the aftermath on whatever adventure she had during the night.  Once I gave her fresh bedding after cleaning her cage and made everything look pretty.  Then in the morning I wake up to find 95% of the bedding shoved in a corner.  And she wasn’t even sleeping in it!  Like all hamsters, she did escape once but because she is in my closest she didn’t really get out.  Instead I found her hanging out in the corner with the cup of acorns tipped over (one of her treats) and a lovely nest made out of fluff from the carpet.  I am a light sleeper but her noises on the wheel and chewing are soft and actually soothing.  Just like ASMR. 

    9.       What are some nicknames that you call your pet?  Many times I call to her, “It’s da Pebbles!” I have no idea where that came from.  I have also called her Sweet Pea or just sweetie.  Maybe even Fuzzy Potato because that is what she looks like.

 Gosh darn it, hamsters are so cute!  Pebbles has been awake now and I can't resist her staring at me anymore. Teddy Bear hamster 2

So, I just learned of some curious game called Codename: Steam. Apparently it's some strategy game involving a steampunk squad fighting aliens. But here's the kicker: the characters are from American literature! Henry Fleming (from The Red Badge of Courage), Tom Sawyer, Tiger Lilly (from Peter Pan), The Cowardly Lion, and even Randolph Carter (from the works of H.P. Lovecraft)!

Happy St. David's Day! Bit late but ah well.

aww, thanks! :hug:
I've been quite idle today so I though I'd share another story for old time's sake. The honourable tale of Captain Robert Campbell.

  In 1914, early in the war, he was captured in combat and sent to a PoW camp in Germany, where, a few months later, the poor chap received a letter stating that his mother was dying of cancer. He subsequently wrote a letter to Kaiser Wilhelm II himself, begging the King of Germany to allow him to visit him mother. To his pleasant surprise, the King permitted Campbell to leave the PoW camp on one condition: that he promise to make his way back to the camp after his visit.

  So he took a train to the Netherlands and a passenger liner from there to the UK where he managed to visit his mother. Unexpectedly, not only did he commit to his promise to return to Germany, but the British Military permitted him (such 'sporting' behaviour could have been interpreted as an excuse for desertion) on the basis of his argument that if he did not return to the camp, other British officers would never be given the same opportunity. Two weeks after he left Germany, he turned himself in at the Dutch/German border and returned to the PoW camp (where he escaped after nine months of digging. He reached the Dutch border again but was recaptured almost at the same place he came in). 

  Sadly, not only did his his mother die in 1917, but no other officers were permitted compassionate leave due to a dispute with the British government that involved a German prisoner being refused a similar request. Campbell himself would survive the war and served again in WW2 as the Chief Observer on the Isle of Wight. Fortunately, being positioned in Britain, he was not captured again.

That is amazing he honored his word!  That is a tough call on whether or not to let PoW have special leave for family members.  Real sad what the end result was.  Thank you for sharing this interesting story.

So, I found an interesting little British plane that could, and did in WWII: The Mosquito.

Also, what WWII battles stand out to you the most?

So, I've been watching Extra Credits videos for a while, and never thought to tell you of their side show: Extra History. My bad.
