.....He turns his face to look me in the eyes, his lips gently brush against my cheek. I freeze and gasp. It is like little sparks prickling my skin. His lips are soft but there is a different softness to him. I have never felt this feeling before. I am inches away from his lips, I can so easily kiss him. As our eyes meet, I can see that same desire hiding inside them. I look down to his lips and them back up into his eyes. He is so close, so close that I can taste him. I can feel his warm breath linger over my lips. He slightly bites at his bottom lip and I swear my knees give in..... ...I look at her, slightly biting down onto my lip. "Oh god you make me crazy when you do that". The passion in me has once again grown out control. "I am going to make you feel things that no man has ever done before" I gently cup her face in my hand and slightly lean it to the side. Her neck is laying bare and exposed before me now.

The most powerful being in the world, the World Monarch, overseeing everything in the world like it was in the palm of his hands. But like all great power, a heavy burden came with it. The 10th to succeed grew tired of it all and wanted to lessen the weight he was bearing on his shoulders, to have a more comfortable life, and to have a family. He decided to divide the World into Ten Domains and made his trusted Knights become the Domain Monarchs. Each of them becoming the Monarchs of Nine of the Ten Domains, with him overseeing only the Tenth. He named the domains from the names of the World Monarchs, including himself. After 36 years of peace and prosperity, a Great Catastrophe occurred, causing each Domain’s countries to converge into one complete landmass. People who had inhuman abilities started to show up and creatures of horror pouring out from who knows where—plunging the whole world into utter chaos. These vile foreign creatures took over the Three of the Ten Domains, while the remaining are barely holding their borders from the monsters. Everyone looked to the man who was once called the "10th World Monarch", the symbol of authority and power, for guidance through their intense hardships. However, he was nowhere to be found. All hope was lost. The protagonist of the story, born after the Domains’ creation, saved an "old" man from a dangerous situation that led himself in harm's way. Being in a vegetative state, he was unaware of everything in the outside world, including The Great Catastrophe. Waking up with the world already in ruins, and people adapted to the changes.

Cassandra Syndrome
Cassandra Syndrome

Cassandra Reid has never found a fortune teller on Earth that could read her future. She always gets the same cards got over and over again from the different tarot readers she approached. High Priestess and the Four Knights. Knight of Pentacles. Knight of Swords. Knight of Wands. Knight of Cups. And the last one? The ominous Death Card. Every fortune teller has no idea what they meant and they have completely given up on her fate. Even she, herself, has given up. Until one of the Knights showed up. And tried to kill her. YUMMY EXCERPT: updates every other day "Why are you protecting me anyway?" I swallowed a lump forming in my throat. "What's in it for you?" "Yeah, Cass. I ask myself every day why I am doing this too. Before I sleep and the first thing that comes to my mind the moment I wake up? It's you." His gaze jerked up and clashed with mine, confusion darkening those gorgeous irises. "I'm doing things I never even wanted to do in the first place. Like messing up my mission as the heir of the House of Cups." "I don't want to be indebted to you! I don't want you to get hurt while you kept me safe." The more I spoke, the more Gabriel's pupils narrowed. "Do you know why I'm doing this?" Gabriel chuckled without humor as he cupped my chin, forcing my face to his. "Because I loathe it when you are hanging out with some other guy. Someone who isn't me." He pulled back and studied my face before shaking his head. "I want to kill them myself. There's a dark thought in my mind that says you are mine to own. And you are mine to kill when that time comes where I have to." Gabriel's grip tightened and he leaned down, placing us nose to nose, his choppy breath traipsing over my lips. "You like taunting me by flirting with other guys too, do you? Well, guess what? It works. I can't fucking get you out of my mind." He released me long enough to slam a fist into the wall just beside my temple. "The first kiss was a goddamn mistake. It was supposed to purge you from my thought, make me stop wondering what you taste like."

Summoning of the Villainous Heroine
Summoning of the Villainous Heroine

"Magic is dangerous for those who weren't born with it." Then came a certain damsel of destruction - overpowered even, though born as an ordinary human. (Want a little sneak peek on our reverse harem / SOTVH cast? Go here ➜ https://youtu.be/srY-FPDaiAE) --- An Excerpt --- Eli made her way to school while barely keeping her collected exterior the whole time. Little did she know that this facade would drop the instant she took a look inside her locker. As soon as she opened it, she found a scatter of thumbtacks, spilled glue and scraps of papers along with the words "The True Man-eater" vandalized on the back of her locker's door. It was downright horrendous. It was a major disaster. At these, Eli only found herself stiff frozen. "Remember all those fairytales I've read? Where a dashing prince or a knight in shining armor always comes to save his damsel in distress? I don't want things to turn out like that. I don't want to be Cinderella anymore..." Steeling her resolve to protect those around her, she decided to become one with the darkness and control things from the shadows starting this point. --- Story Synopsis --- This is where a bookworm's love for reading, fused with a little touch of magic, gives birth to a half-heroine and half-villainess protagonist - Grey hair, thick glasses and a gloomy appearance overall - though an outstanding student, everyone steers clear of Angelica "Eli" Claes. Unable to make friends due to her nerdy mien, Eli often drowns herself in the world of fiction and immerses most of her time in the company of books. "Books are just better companions than people, I guess..." Never had she imagined that she'd also get to be in the company of a group of gentlemen who're just too perfect to be considered 'non-fiction'. With the appearance of this ever popular Student Council at her precious oasis, trouble leads to another. The most befuddling thing is when she gained the memories of the antagonist in a fantasy novel she'd been reading - a villainous empress who fell on her own blade, Venus. Ever since, she found herself causing troubles to the esteemed Student Council instead - Enter the perfect Student Council President who's all smiles and sparkles, the charming and blithesome Vice President, the gallant Public Information Officer known for being a social butterfly, and a certain classmate of hers sought by every Sports club at school yet chose to work as a library assistant instead? Little did the bookworm know that these people aren't really who they appear to be. (Cover Photo's not mine: Credits to the original artist)

Light Years Away
Light Years Away

---- She balled her fists, getting ready to punch the man in the face if the situation requires. They are, after all, alone in the room. Sometimes she forgets that Xue Guangxi was of the opposite gender – a man more than capable of beguiling innocent women when he sets his mind to the task. ‘Perhaps he had been gone for too long that I had forgotten how his charms work. That fact never left my head, but experiencing it firsthand… Well, Nah!!!’ She tried to shake whatever silliness her mind entertains despite her prudence. But what her neutral poker face could hide, her berserkly widened eyes could not conceal. Nevertheless, even if he noticed, the young man did not point it out. He was more concerned and occupied by other matters. Matters of far greater importance… …For example, her safety. She blinked several times, trying to disrupt the connection their locked gazes somehow managed to forge. She bowed her head, still blinking, and darted her lowered gaze to the floor. She straightened up her sitting position and swatted both of the man’s hands on her shoulders without force. But Xue Guangxi held her in place. “Look at me.” “What is it now, Guangxi?” She whispered. Her voice, thin and fragile and barely audible. Perhaps more from the earlier adrenaline pushed a blush on her face. Perhaps, it wasn’t the adrenaline to be blamed. She tried to swat his hands for the second time, but his grip only tightened, making his point more pronounced. Either he obeys or she does. Most of the time, Xue Guangxi always gave in to Kang Sola’s whims. Even when his temper wasn’t too great to be proud of, at the end of every argument, he lets the girl win. But in this instance, he wanted to be more assertive. “You always make me worry, Sola.” He breathed with all solemnity, like a prayer. The clasp of his hands on her shoulders tightened. She could feel it. She winced. Then, without further ceremony or introduction, he pressed her into a tight embrace, full of concern. Any person would be able to discern if a form of skinship was of sincere nature or not. Kang Sola could tell his was of genuine care and concern for her. “You are far more delicate than you think. God, Sola!” He cradled her head with his right hand placed just above her nape. Some of her balayage locks laced his manly fingers. ---- Story of best friends, Kang Sola and Xue Guangxi, as they traverse their journey through adulthood, amidst conflicting choices and internal issues within themselves and from their past. Will they be able to resolve their personal struggles and find a common ground towards happiness? Will they have to compromise to achieve it? Will they end up together and overcome the threshold of their friendship into lovers or remain as platonic friends and each other's family? Other Info: Light story about friendship, family, love, and adulting. No offensive, dark themes (just the backstory, hehe), **Can be considered the second book after Milady's Fine Gentleman, but the story is stand-alone. Reference to the first novel is minimal if not only shown in the backstory. BUT THERE WILL BE SPOILER FOR MILADY'S FINE GENTLEMAN (It's inevitable, sorry)** "You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars" -E.E.

Thank you Taintedmetal for this collection of interesting experience.it did at some point felt relevant to everyday lIfe. The stories reflect just drawn thoughts of the author probably a series of them which i find with a lot of humor at the begining which is lIght for laughter and the at the middle which could be related to real life experience and the a little deep in thought part in the end and closing. i find the part when Cynthia punch Diah hillarious i was laughing out loud. The letters back and forth interesting. And you finding the two voLunteers to be cannabalised through the “web” - good use of pulling reading through different dimensions. it’s like and makes a reader laugh over it 🌈good work!

I love it! It is very well-written and descriptive, and it helps the reader imagine the scenes almost perfectly. Each chapter has a unique plot and titles.And what I love the most, is the suspense a reader will feel, as she read through the words.

I'm not sure I've ever read an anthology on webnovel...so this novel is a treat. Great characterization and imagination from the writer. I can only recommend this profusely!

JJ_PrakosoLv1JJ_Prakoso

In my opinion, all the chapters have a unique and interesting idea. The story has creepy factors that make it more intriguing and exciting to read at the same time. The world itself felt quite alive and interesting to explore. The writing style in the story is some of the best writing styles in the book that I ever had and the flow of the story is pretty smooth and clear. The characters are also interesting to explore. Some of the chapters have a very good quality storyline and a unique plot twist. However, some of the chapters in the story have a kind of alright execution and some of the chapter ideas feel kind of bland or the plot twist is pretty expected. I think that's all I had to say about this story and Overall rating, in my opinion for this book is 8.7/10. Keep up a good work

Superb. All I can say is that this is really well written. Every story is interesting and the characters are well designed, and their emotions are well projected and expressed. Cliffhangers were also good. Definitely worth to read until the last one, and I look forward for another set of stories to binge after this one. Good Work!
