Chapter 36: Purification
When Meteora’s valley appeared before her, Lara thought she would've never suspected to return there so many times - and yet that place’s beauty still made her mute in awe.
Maddalena was also silent while watching impressed those huge masses of stone with monasteries on the top. After the copter landed near Kalambaka, she felt giddy when discovering the only way to access Ayios Stefanos was to climb that almost vertical wall, as the famous web-elevator would be used only by the elder Marcus.
Lara turned towards the redhead and said: “No need to go up. The climb's exhausting and we’re just going to stop for an hour.” Maddalena was about to thank her when the British explorer, turning around, said aloud: “Anyway, I don’t think the monks will allow you in. They’re picky enough with common women, they'd probably make a fuss with a prostitute.”
The Italian girl blushed and tried to hold back a harsh reply, but she finally said: “I
Chapter 35: The Angel of Death
It was midnight. Giselle slept naked in her bed after having been visited again by her faithful minion. Unlike last time, he hadn’t been blatant and insistent, but waited patiently until she allowed him into bed. She had nothing to lose, but also reminded him she was still his mistress and those permissions and intimacies didn’t change anything about their previous relationship.
Schäffer, of course, had no objection, and even seemed to enjoy his strange situation of sexual servant; which on the other hand he'd provoked. At the time he left, she fell asleep and spent about two hours until she woke up, beset by the feeling that someone was in her room. When reached over and turned on the light, she found herself in front of her daughter.
Bathsheba was sitting in a chair beside the bed, very upright among Giselle’s clothes, hanging on the chair and scattered on the carpet. Her hands rested together on her knees and she was wearing her white cloak, with her hai
Chapter 34: The Voice in the Dark
Giselle looked out the window and took the coffee cup to her lips, then she set it aside and looked mechanically at the crimson lipstick imprint she'd just left on the cup’s edge. Absolutely all the days of her life, since she was 15 years old, she used to get up and make-up carefully. Her mother had taught both she and Kristina that make-up make the ugly beautiful and the beautiful further beautified - and both had been always been very beautiful. She'd never missed the mirror's ritual, in which, focused, covered her white skin with a touch of colour, highlighting the green of her eyes and painting her lips in red, giving herself a truly exquisite appearance. At least, until Kristina had suffered that terrible accident which disfigured her face. The most skilful surgery hadn’t been enough to completely restore her lost beauty.
Giselle was very attractive, and could've had the men she'd wanted. Her slender complexion, her face's delicacy and her soft voice made her infinite
Chapter 33: Memories of a Healer
The helicopter and the survivors of Justin’s brigade met in Romania, near Bran’s castle. Six from twelve aircrafts were lost.
“I'm so sorry, Justin.” Lara muttered, casting her eyes by his men.
He shook his head. “I'll take care of everything. We knew there was a risk and we did it anyway. What the hell was that? A mafia, a cult?”
“Something like that, Justin...but I can’t tell you more. You’ve been involved enough. The favour is more than returned.”
“What for?” Kurtis said then, who was behind her, leaning on a fence.
Justin smiled. “Soldier Croft saved my life in a skirmish we had for... Bangladesh?”
“Exactly.” She smiled.
“I promised one day I'd return her the favour of her life.”
“And you did.” Lara added. “Thank you, Justin. Without you it would've been impossible.”
The pilot saluted and walked to his aircraft, followed by the rest of his men. Before
Hello and welcome to GamingGirls. I hope you enjoy your stay and consider joining us.
Here are a few rules/f.a.q.s to keep things running smoothly.
No, you don't have to be a girl to join, this is a club to celebrate women from gaming, not just women who game.
Deviations with men are allowed as long as the art also features women such as couples pics or groups.
OC's are allowed.
Mature deviations are allowed as long as they are properly labeled as such.
No bashing please, be civil. Just because you don't like a certain character doesn't mean someone else is wrong for liking them or that you should be rude.
Remember this is a fanclub for gaming ladies, that means no anime characters. This is a gaming exclusive club.
We accept ladies from all games and I have made folders for the more popular ones. If you want me to make another folder just ask, I will do it right away.
Here are some of the generalized folders we have though:
Cosplay: All cosplay for any game
Crossover: Any art featuring characters from more than one series
Fanfiction: Yes, fanfics are allowed now, just as long as a girl is the main character. Switching perspectives to males is fine of course, as long as there is a girl's perspective too.
Models: All models for xna/xps, mmd
PNGS: All game pngs
