Veralis’s scowling face reflected back at her, hovering ominously above the blue and green planet where her troubles had begun. The primitive humanoids were irritatingly resilient. She chewed on the nail … Continue reading Prompt 167-Anger
Hello, hello! It's another beautiful Sunday on this lovely planet we call Earth. I apologize for the absence of a Friday post.
