Crimson Instinct

Crimson Instinct

It's a race against time. But the challenge gets even harder as there is a certain difficulty that they both have to overcome. With Bai Li facing his own inner demons, will their quest for truth spiral out of control? Will he get his honour back? Who is the enemy hiding in the shadows that Xin Lei and Bai Li would have to fight? Along this journey to find their answers, will it also spark the flames of love between them? *** Amidst the booming crack of ear-piercing gunshots, Xin Lei bumped into the ex-army officer, Major Bai Li, who recently got a dishonorable discharge. He was the only hope for her who could help her in digging the truth behind not only that syndicate chasing after her life but also to find about her father and brother who have mysteriously disappeared. Together, they set out to search for the truth, but it shapes into something much darker and sinister as they learn about the case Xin Lei's father was working on - to prove a father innocent of his little daughter's disappearance, plunging them into one of the dangerous worlds, hidden from everybody. --- Scene Excerpt --- My foot was stuck in the pit and I pushed Bai Li away from me who was trying to get me out. There was no time. The sounds of sirens were growing closer and closer. How can I let the police catch him? But my strength wasn't enough. I tugged his shirt. I begged him. 'Please go.' Bai Li grabbed my arms. "Don't push me away, Xin Lei. Soldiers never leave anyone behind. It's either we are caught together or we escape together." Before I knew it, his lips were on mine. "Whatever it is, sticking together is the only option I give you." --- **NOVEL COVER CREDIT GOES TO WEBNOVEL AUTHOR AND ALSO AN AMAZING ARTIST - CHAINSLOCK.

Lazily Yours.

Lazily Yours.

R18. ................. Sloth noun -reluctance to work or make an effort; laziness. A lazy and casual life. That was the only thing that Lyca Huang wanted after transmigrating into the body of a rich young miss. Tired of schemes and killing, the lazy elite assassin vowed to enjoy her second life and live a life of luxury while lazing around and bossing over her servants. With her doting mother and loving father, Lyca thought that she could easily achieve this goal. Oh boy was she wrong... so wrong. Who would have thought that her prominent grandfather would introduce her as the heiress to his security empire? How could her lazy ass manage a conglomerate? She wanted to protest! She must decline the offer in front of the whole Huang Family! However, at the time of the announcement she was so busy eating her freshly peeled grapes and could not find the time to just open her mouth to speak. Second, she was too lazy to argue or create a strain of conversation with anyone else at the party. In the end, Lyca nodded at her grandfather’s words as she continued eating. Sometimes… food was more important than pointless arguments, ah. Moreover an heiress sounded really interesting. That only meant... more food and servants, right? ............. "What are you doing?" his brows knitted when he saw the woman in red languidly leaning against the tree. "Resting," her nonchalant answer only made him more irritated. "Resting?” he eyed the apple in her hand. “If you keep on resting every five minutes, you will be late to your own welcome party." Shen Qui frowned as he stared at her fox-like smile. This woman truly made him speechless. He narrowed at her brown eyes. “Can you stop being so… lazy!?” This woman was a corporate heiress! How could she act like this? “Aiyo… this is not being lazy! I am saving my energy,” Lyca's lips lifted into a cunning smile. "Since you are so concerned about this party then... why don't you carry me, instead?" she shamelessly beamed at him. "Promise... I’ll behave," she added as her eyes immediately went down to stare at his black uniform that perfectly showed his fit physique. "No touching!" she grinned. "I swear." ………………………. “Oi, Shen Qui, do you like me?” she leaned towards him, showing a little bit of her chest that was covered by her thin robe. She smiled and batted her eyelids. “No,” he answered, his face stern. “That will never happen.” “Good!” The smile on her face disappeared as she nodded, satisfied at the lack of emotion in his face. “Then… marry me.” ………………………… One lazy heiress. One hardworking illegitimate soldier. Two opposite worlds. Two different goals. And one marriage due to her laziness. Book 2 of Seven Deadly Sins Series Book of Sloth: Lazily Yours

Reborn in the SCP universe

Reborn in the SCP universe

This story follows our wonderful protagonist as he, well... dies... but fear not! This is not the end! He is greeted by an extremely bored god that has been seeking a new form of entertainment, and for better or worse this god's chosen our protag to be sent into the SCP universe! Now he's forced to scramble desperately to survive, but luckily he was given two gifts from this god. An anomalous ability of his own, and his choice of one safe class scp item! ‐----------‐‐----------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimers: You only need basic knowledge of the SCP universe to read this. I will do my best to explain events, SCP's, and characters from the wiki that become relevant to my story. This story begins shortly before the Omega 7 incident with Able. But our protagonist doesn't truly get involved with The Foundation until the beginning of Resserection. This is not one of those stories where the protagonist is super overpowered, I personally don't like those stories and I'd like to focuse on finding creative ways to use the elements I've been given to improve the main character's situation. I don't own anything SCP, like at all.

Padfoot and his Nephew

Padfoot and his Nephew

What if Harry had His godfather? What if Harry grew up in a good household not restricted by damning blood magic? What if Harry is a charming devil that thinks and charms people instead of just believing whatever he is told? and what if he is a proper noble that likes muggle playboy books like his godfather? LETS FIND OUT!! :) Oh and Harry might become overpowered... but it will make sense due to DumbyDork not being able to interfere and him having a good education from a decently early age. I dont own hp, J.K. Rowling does. The artwork is by HitoFanart and if you don't want me to use it I will take it down (I just REAAALLY LOVE YOUR WORK!) and btw its just a fanfic, dont hate... too much rofl.

Changing tides (hiatus)

Changing tides (hiatus)

So erm yeah, this is a fantasy with some magical realism, MC is a smart introverted guy. the setting for now is highschool. Updates will be pretty slow. The story will have some of my own views on life in it, but from time to time might be a little too much. There will be some references to World War 2 and other significant historical events/families. To that, I will say I do not stand for fascism, communism or any other political allegiance because that's not the point of this book. and things used are purely fictional usage.
