    Summary

    “Dunque—“ Sam si schiarisce la voce, ci riprova: “Dunque Dean ha qualcosa del genere dentro di sé?”
    La dottoressa sposta dei ciuffi di capelli castani dietro l’orecchio. “È molto probabile, sì. Le uova dei Kappa trovano un’ottima incubatrice nel corpo umano.”
    Il tracciato cardiaco segnala la perdita di un paio di battiti.
    “Che bella notizia,” In un modo o nell’altro, Dean qualcosa deve pur dirla. Anche solo per dare fiato ai polmoni che all’improvviso, sembrano non averne abbastanza.
    “Oh, sì, lo è davvero.” incalza il medico, “Se non avessi avuto il mio contatto, tra due giorni faresti la fine di Kevin, Harry, Daniel, Michael e chissà quanti altri ignari camperisti trascinati sul fondo di un lago da un Kappa e diventati pastone per i suoi cuccioli.” si volta, torna a settare un macchinario dall’altro lato del letto, sorride smagliante: “Invece, hai incontrato me.”

    Summary

    Suddenly he felt a hand grab his wrist. He opened his eyes, but the water was too dark to see through. He was pulled upwards quickly as his legs trailed behind him. As he broke the surface, he gasped for the air his lungs so desperately needed. He remembered the hand, and thought of Daichi. How had he pulled him through the water like that?

    A wave came and lifted them up, then tossed them back to the sea below. This time, Hajime was only pulled under water briefly. The hand on his wrist brought him back up to the surface. He felt himself being towed across the top of the water. He could see light from the lighthouse in front of them. He was thankful to be going towards the shore, though still deeply confused at how Daichi was managing to keep them up and pull them. The water was strong and wild, repeatedly trying to throw them under.

    Hajime called out, "hey! Are you okay?" The hand on his wrist stopped dragging him forward. Lightning flashed across the sky again, illuminating the darkness. Hajime saw a man floating in the water, looking at him. A man he did now know.

    Summary

    If you walk down the alleyway with a green brick house at the entrance on the right, make a left at the second intersection, and go straight forward until you see the building with a black door and a wooden plaque hanging from a rusted iron bar, you’ll be at Bar Eden…

    A cozy place, where anybody, from presidents to rank-and-file hitmen are accepted and welcomed to rest, as long as they follow these rules:

    1. Don’t incite violence, else the bar cat gets fussy.
    2. Talk about anything and everything you want.
    3. Names are to be kept a secret.
    4. Forget every word spoken in the bar once you leave.

    You’re the lone bartender here, and have already grown a following of loyal patrons, ranging from greenhorns to veterans from all over. Perhaps it was your radiant appearance that drew people in, or it was your ever-charming personality, or maybe you just were really, really good at mixing drinks.

    Either way, one thing is for sure - everybody who meets you is bound to share a story, infused by spirits.

    What will be their stories tonight?

    “Eh?”

    Summary

    “You’re bleeding!” Katsuki spits out intelligently, his entire body frozen.

    “And you’re beautiful,” the god has the audacity to huff before collapsing into Katsuki’s arms.

    Bakugou has some actual things to do at Camp Yuuei – he isn’t just there to remind himself that he’s too socially inept to face his mom’s new boyfriend and his son. He’s got to train because he has been attacked five times in the last month. He also has to tell Kirishima he’s definitely not interested. And, he has to win against stupid Deku in the Capture of the Flag for the fifth time in a row. That is until things are suddenly different: Deku is on a mission (what the fuck?!), Kirishima has a boyfriend (again, what the fuck?!) and he’s starting to have weird dreams about the end of the world. And things start to get even weirder when he stumbles upon a boy in the forest who has golden blood. A god? What the fuck?
