Cammy - Chapter 4 by Corey R.

Chapter 4: As Miles and Anne made their way to the Human World, Ben and Cammy arrived at his home and went inside. Ben gave Cammy a quick tour of all the rooms of his small home. He showed her his kitchen, bathroom, master bedroom, guest room, living room, and his office space, which was really just a second bedroom. “I know it’s nothing fancy, but hopefully you’ll be comfortable here for now.”, Ben explained in a calm but friendly tone. “I do not think it needs to be ‘fancy’. I think that something simple can be just as amazing. Your home is perfect. In fact, it is one of the best places I have ever seen in many years.”, Cammy responded in her same soft, but gentle tone. “Really? Huh. Most people I’ve had over tell me I should move to a better place, but money doesn't exactly grow on trees ya know, so it’s been hard trying to save for something like that. It’s definitely nice to hear someone actually say I should just stay where I’m at.”, Ben explained to her. He wasn’t sure what…

Chapter 3:
As Ben and Cammy walked to his home, little did they realize they were being watched by something. Or rather SOMEONE. A distance behind the pair was a strange glowing orb of light that quickly teleported away after seeing the two together. Back in the Elf Realm, Zoe was looking into her staff with a look of disgust as she saw the pair from her orb she had sent through the portal before disappearing.
“So, Cammy thinks she can hide in the Human World does she? Well, little does she know that I am much more intelligent than most see me as. Apprentice, come before me! I have a task for you to do.”, She said to herself as she summoned her apprentice, who kneeled before her as he arrived. He had skin that looked like stone, short hair that matched the clouds, and a suit that looked as if he was dipped in gold. His eyes were like a night sky, but lacked the shining stars that sometimes appear.
“What is it that you require o…

The Great VHS Collection Review #3: Arachnophobia(1990)


I think in this first couple of reviews I have been a little harsh and negative (even if the animated Narnia movie is an ironic masterpiece), so for this one I will talk about a movie that I actually like and find is ignored in favor of Gremlins and Poltergeist in terms of suburban horror. In fact I think watching these three movies together would be a fascinating experience, the millennial scaring trilogy.

The film is about a family dealing with incredibly venomous (and one cat sized) spiders, spiders that can kill with a single bite. Naturally this is not a film for anyone who actually suffers from arachnophobia, the suspense scenes are well made and timed perfectly. Watching it as an adult it is easy to see how this scared so many people when they were kids. Looking back at it now it’s not quite as scary as it could have been, it is definitely more comedy than horror. That being said the first death is done quite well and it d…

Chapter 2:Meanwhile, in a small town, a young man was just finishing his work day. He looked to be no older than 20, and had a pale looking skin tone. His hair was short and looked like the night sky. His eyes had the tone of chestnuts, almost glass looking in the bright early summer sun. He wore a charcoal looking suit which reached his waist, and a tie that looked the same as the sea. On his legs, he wore pants that looked as if he wore ash on his legs instead. His shoes matched his suit to complete his outfit. “Well, that’s a wrap people. Go home and we’ll go at this again next week.”, came the boss’s voice over his desk speaker. Upon hearing this, the man was quick to gather his belongings, and was now on his way home. These included a notebook, small bag of pens and pencils, and a thermos of which he kept his drinks in during the day.  He didn’t live very far from the office he worked at, and since it was Friday, he was in no rush for anything. But before he left, his boss stoppe…

Introduction - What is going on in the world right now
You may have heard a whole lot about something called the coronavirus already but you could still have some questions. This guide will help you understand what it is all about:Coronavirus is spread when you sneeze or cough.
