Birth of the Shichinintai Snake Bone Ch. 1"Come on, Kairi. You can do it. Just take it nice and slow," her husband, Ichiro, said, trying to calm her. "How?! I'm giving birth here!" she screamed. "I know it hurts but try to-"
"Hurts is one hell of an understatement! Try kills! Anyway, am I almost done here?"
"Yes, just one more push."
With all the remaning strength she had, Kairi gave one final push before hearing the sweet sound of her new child's crying. She collasped panting and relieved that finally, finally the extreme pain was over.
"Is...is it.....a.....girl like.......we hoped?"
'You're the one who wants a girl. I don't care if it's a boy or girl. I'm just glad I have a child of my own.'
Ichiro picked up the new child.
"No, it's a boy."

"What?! NO! Why would you want to get rid of our first child?!"
"Because it's not a girl!"
"Well, if you like it or not he's stay."
"He's not an 'it'. He's our beautiful new baby. Get over it and help me name him."
He grabbed a nearby blanket and
The Giver ProjectBehind him, across vast distances of space and time, from the place he had left, he thought he heard music too. But perhaps it was only an echo.
'I did it. I really did it! I really escaped!' Jonas thought. He and Gabe had really escaped the community. There was no more fearing that they would be captured. No more fearing Gabriel's release. No more sameness. No more. But Jonas thought for a minute. He thought of all the things he had to leave behind. No more days receiving memories from the Giver. No more Giver. No more mom and dad.

I grab my bag, sling it over my shoulder, and run towards the third fire. Katniss said I would have to time when the last fire would be lit. So all I have to do is wait. The Careers probably know something's up by now. All I can do is hope that they don't split up. It would be easier to find me if they do. I hear a sudden crack of a stick. It sends shivers up my spine. I jolt my head to the side to see what it was. I see a small brown puffball. "Good, it's just a rabbit," I say, relieved. More sticks crack. I spoke too soon.
"There you are!" Cato yells. By the sound of his voice I can tell he's out for blood. He throws a spear at me. Luckily, I'm able to dodge it. I run to the nearest tree and do what I do best, climb. Clover throws two handfuls of knives at me. All getting stuck in the tree's bark. Thank god! One about got me in th
