You train with mentors to guarantee you're  place as Mark’s guardian. Although you may have to sacrifice everything to protect Mark from enemies both within St. Vladamir’s walls and outside them.

Waking up I was met by Mark staring at me “good morning” he said I smiled at him “morning” I said slowly getting up from my bed “let’s go for a walk” Mark said “but the sun’s out” I said, he shrugged “so” I nodded and we started walking out of my dorm.

Walking over to Vladimir’s statue in the courtyard “come on, over here” I said pulling Mark’s hand “Before the accident, my father used to say that for a Moroi not declaring a magic is like not going through puberty.” Mark said looking up at the statue “Yeah, and he also used to say practice during the day while the world, your world, is sleeping. Let’s make some magic.” I said.

Grabbing a stick that was on the floor. Mark looked at the stick, then the stick court on fire so I dropped it on the floor then water came out of no where then the ground shook causing the stick to bounce off the ground and the air around made it stay there “perfect, water earth fire and air. That’s my Moroi” I said putting my hand up waiting for a high five “Y/N….” Mark said laughing “don’t leave me hanging” I said walking closer “Y/N you know how I feel about high fives”.

At that moment Yugyeom walked over to us “its 11:00 am you both should be in bed. The sun has cleared the trees, and it won’t be kind, Your Highness.” Yugyeom said smirking “shouldn’t you be asleep as well?” I asked “well I was bored so I went for a walk. What are you two up too?” He asked raising an eyebrow at us “if people didn’t know any better that they think you two where on a little date”  he said laughing the both of us laughed with him “yeah yeah whatever” I said rolling my eyes starting to walk off in to the school.

Sitting in the library reading while Mark was across from me. Distracted by the book I was reading Mark finally spoke “what element should I pick?” He asked, putting my book down I looked at him thinking “well what do you want to use more?” I asked. He shrugged “I have no idea”. “You could go for fire with me” Bambam said all a sudden sitting next to me making me jump, I hit his arm “don’t do that God. You almost gave me a heart attack” I said holding my hand to my chest, he laughed “sorry” he said putting his head on my shoulder I push him off “hey why do you let Mark be clingy to you and not me?” He asked “what I don’t let anyone be clingy. What you on about” I said looking at him “just saying anyway did you hear about that rumour” Mark instantly looked at Bambam “what rumour?” I looked at Marks face he looked panicked “oh so apparently Y/N has the name of ‘blood whore’ since you two are so close” Bambam said Mark stood up storming out the door, I looked at Bambam “what was that about, what’s a blood whore?” I asked he shrugged “hopping you knew” he said standing up and leaving so I just went back to my book.

Walking down a corridor I noticed people looking at me i just ignored them. I ended up bumping in to Yoongi “hey” I smiled Yoongi looked at me “blood whore” he said walking away from me i just stared at him shocked.

Today so far was terrible no one talked to me even Mark disappeared for the day, I was getting annoyed with the whispering around me. Getting in class Mark was there with Jackson and Jungkook talking, walking up to them I sat down between Mark and Jackson they both stopped talking and looked at me “what, why are people ignoring me?” I asked Jackson sighed “it’s because your being called a ‘blood whore’ Y/N” Jackson said “what is a 'blood whore’ anyway?” I asked getting annoyed “Y/N a blood whore is when a Moroi drinks the blood of a Dhampir, it’s not right and the fact you and Mark are so close people started to think, even though nothing is going on” Jungkook said “you don’t understand how serious that is Y/N I’ve been in the head masters office trying to convince him that nothing like that actually happened ok” Mark said I looked at them “WHAT!?” I said getting angry “calm Y/N it’s fine it’s done and dusted” Mark said putting a hand on my shoulder. I nodded looking at the teacher that just walked in ready to start the lesson.

The thing that got me worrying is Mark has drunk my blood before after the accident of his family he ran away, I went to look for him and in me comforting him, he bit my neck and and drank my blood, but no one knew unless someone saw us that night, but it still doesn’t explain why now, that was a year ago.

I was stuck in my room when a knock on the door startled me “come in” I said siting up straight, Jackson walked in “hey how are you doing?” He asked sitting down next to me. I sighed leaning my head on Jackson shoulder “well I’m annoyed pissed and going to punch someone, what do you think?” I said Jackson just sighed and put he’s arms around me “I’m sorry about what’s happened today” he said rubbing my arm. I looked up at him “why are you apologising? You didn’t start the rumour” I said feeling more comfortable and safe with him “I know but I’m your friend and I didn’t support you when you needed it” he said kissing the top of my head I sighed breathing in his sent “it’s fine I don’t blame you” I said starting to fall asleep. I felt Jackson chuckle “good night Y/N and …” he said something else but I was to far gone to hear the rest of what he said.


Emilio Ambasz

While many of the pioneers of green architecture could arguably be criticized as technocratic and dry, this has never applied to Emilio Ambasz. His concept of “green over gray” has been pushing the debate around sustainability forwards since the 1970s, but alongside this concept he has developed a critical approach to architectural meaning and form-making which competes with many of architecture’s more poetic practitioners. Ahead Vladimir Belogolovsky’s upcoming exhibition of Ambasz’s work, “Emilio Ambasz: Architecture Toward Nature,” which is on show at the Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Center from February 6th – 28th, Belogolovsky shares his interview with the architect in ArchDaily’s “City of Ideas” column.

The CIA’s finding that Vladimir Putin’s Russia actively intervened in our election to help Donald Trump explains why many of us are not simply disappointed or unhappy that Trump won. We are genuinely alarmed. And Trump’s cavalier response to these fears only deepens them.

When The Post revealed the CIA’s conclusions about Russia, Trump’s response was to insult the CIA, tell a lie about the size of his victory and act as if an election still very fresh in our minds were some sort of historical event dating back to the Pilgrims.

Literature is literature. Fiction is fiction. To call a story a true story is an insult to both art and truth. Every great writer is a great deceiver, but so is that arch-cheat Nature. Nature always deceives. From the simple deception of propagation to the prodigiously sophisticated illusion of protective colors in butterflies or birds, there is in Nature a marvelous system of spells and wiles. The writer of Fiction only follow’s Nature’s lead.

Vladimir Nabokov, teaching his students how to read Kafka, pointed out to them that the insect into which Gregor Samsa is transformed is in fact a winged beetle, an insect that carries its wings under its armored back, and that if Gregor had only discovered them, he would have been able to escape. And then Nabokov added: ‘Many a Dick and a Jane grow up like Gregor, unaware that they too have wings and can fly.

Viktor Vasnetsov, Maria Magdalene (mural for St. Vladimir’s Cathedral, Kiev)

The red egg comes from an old Christian legend. Mary Magdalene was invited to a banquet held by the emperor Tiberius and, holding a plain egg in her hand, proclaimed “Christ is risen!” The emperor burst out laughing, saying that a man rising from the dead was as likely as the egg turning red in her hand. Before the words were out of his mouth, the egg was a brilliant blood red, and Mary continued preaching before the imperial court.

“There’s no way that Professor Hopewell expects this paper to be completely coherent,” Ava groans, a hand threading into her hair in frustration. “A comparison of Leo Tolstoy and Vladimir Nabokov? It’s apples and fucking oranges.”

“They’re both Russian,” you offer up meekly. Truth be told, you have no clue how you’re supposed to tie them together. All you know was that this paper is worth thirty percent of your grade, and you can’t afford to get anything less than a B.

“They’re from different time periods,” she huffs, flipping angrily through the pages of Anna Karenina.

You don’t respond to her, instead sinking back into the novel open in front of you. Thoughts of your lazy morning flood into your head, and you struggle to tear your mind away from the way Rafa had woken you up by slipping under the covers and settling between your naked thighs. You’re marking a particularly interesting passage with a sticky note when your phone buzzes on the table.

What the last 48 hours told us about Trump's next 4 years
President-elect Donald Trump went nose-to-nose Wednesday with a press corps itching to cross-examine him after more than five months at arm's length, while his top nominees faced off with senators during a strategic crush of confirmation hearings.
By Gregory Krieg, CNN
  1. Donald Trump still hates the press, except for Fox News and Breitbart.
  2. Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is so supportive of Russia and Trump’s buddy Vladimir Putin that he refuses to condemn Russia’s murdering journalists and bombing civilians.
  3. Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, will not pursue alleged civil rights violations by police and police departments.
  4. FBI director James Comey, asked whether the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia, refused to comment: “Especially in a public forum, we never confirm or deny a pending investigation.” (Except, of course, when it’s Hillary Clinton.)
