I was wondering what the difference between perfume, body spray, body mist, body splash, eau de toilette, eau de perfum, eau de cologne and cologne. If someone could give me the meaning for each AND the differences between them that would be great! I would also like a good, not too expensive place to shop for body spray. Thanks! also what's a fragrance mist? i mean i know what it is but i want to know the difference between fragrance mist and all the other things i mentioned above.
Questions About body mist meaning
I'm thinking very seriously about getting a Clarisonic facial system. I'd be getting the Mia 2 I think. I'd be getting one of their cleansers (the gentle hydro one or the refreshing gel one) and I'd probably get the deep pore brush head. I do have some questions - 1, I know this entire line, no matter what you buy, is pretty expensive, so first and foremost - is it REALLY worth what you're paying? 2. I read you need to replace the brush heads every 3 months. That's pretty fair. What about the actual device though? Do you ever need to replace them? How long does a bottle of cleanser last (providing you use it twice daily)? 3. Is the Mia 2 good enough, or should I get the Aria or PLUS? 4. Should I use it on my body too (meaning get one of the more expensive devices)... or would just using a regular body scrub like I do be good enough? 6. For the heads, should I just get one (either the normal one or the deep pore cleansing one)... or should I get a normal one for regular use, then also get the deep pore cleansing one for like a once a week thing? I was leaning towards just getting the deep pore one and use it twice daily so my skin is always perfectly cleansed. 7. How long do the chargers last? 8. Which travel bag would be better - a barrel one, or mesh one? 9. I have hormonal acne only (when I get my period, I notice pimple activity) - I know I don't need their acne head/cleanser/device because mine's not severe enough. Would it be ok to use a different type of pimple treatment (like from Mario Badescu) with a Clarisonic cleansing system? 10. And finally, obviously Clarisonic doesn't make a toner/facial mist or moisturizers. Is it ok to "mix and match" and use your own toner/facial mist and SPF day lotion and a nighttime lotion (I'd probably buy those from Mario Badescu like the acne treatment)? Thanks so much ahead of time! A couple more quick questions - 1. You wouldn't need a facial scrub, right? I mean wouldn't this exfoliate enough on its own? And finally, do they sell kits/sets that you can cuztomize yourself, or do you really need to buy EVERYTHING you personally want separately? I know online they have sets, but what if they don't have the brush head or cleanser that you need in the set? How do you know how much JUST a certain device will cost on its own? Online, it just has them in kits. So, I shouldn't even use THEIR cleansers? Wow! I figured I should since it'd probably work better. My skin isn't too sensitive, so would the deep pore cleansing one still be too risky? I have normal skin that isn't oily or dry. I suggested the deep pore one because I figured I'd clean really deep down and make my skin always have the best cleansing expereince possible. What cleanser is best then? The Mario Badescu line has cleansers - would they be good? Also, on the website... it says that you can only use the body head for the Aria or PLUS only and not the Mia or Mia 2. Yeah I knothe brushes are the same. Thanks for being so nice and helpful. I might get a better model... but do they sell JUST the devices by theirselves and not in a set? If I HAD to buy a set, what would I do with the cleanser(s) it came with? Just keep them to give them a try, then throw them away if I didn't like them? If I could buy just a device on its own (same with the brush or brushes I chose), I'd probably get all the cleansing stuff from Mario Badescu, and it'd be cheaper that way.
I mean, its not like "sniff sniff sniff sniff" its more like "sniff". The people sitting next to me don't do it, but others in the room do it. They don't look up or anything, btw. I wear deodorant every day and sometimes body mist. I shower often, too. If I ask my friends if I smell, they say no. Am I just being paranoid or do I smell? If I do smell, how can i fix this?
green and silent spot, amid the hills, A small and silent dell! O'er stiller place No singing skylark ever poised himself. The hills are heathy, save that swelling slope, Which hath a gay and gorgeous covering on, All golden with the never-bloomless furze, Which now blooms most profusely: but the dell, Bathed by the mist, is fresh and delicate As vernal cornfield, or the unripe flax, When, through its half-transparent stalks, at eve, The level sunshine glimmers with green light. Oh! 'tis a quiet spirit-healing nook! Which all, methinks, would love; but chiefly he, The humble man, who, in his youthful years, Knew just so much of folly as had made His early manhood more securely wise! Here he might lie on fern or withered heath, While from the singing lark (that sings unseen The minstrelsy that solitude loves best), And from the sun, and from the breezy air, Sweet influences trembled o'er his frame; And he, with many feelings, many thoughts, Made up a meditative joy, and found Religious meanings in the forms of Nature! And so, his senses gradually wrapped In a half sleep, he dreams of better worlds, And dreaming hears thee still, O singing lark, That singest like an angel in the clouds! My God! it is a melancholy thing For such a man, who would full fain preserve His soul in calmness, yet perforce must feel For all his human brethren -O my God! It weighs upon the heart, that he must think What uproar and what strife may now be stirring This way or that way o'er these silent hills - Invasion, and the thunder and the shout, And all the crash of onset; fear and rage, And undetermined conflict -even now, Even now, perchance, and in his native isle: Carnage and groans beneath this blessed sun! We have offended, Oh! my countrymen! We have offended very grievously, And been most tyrannous. From east to west A groan of accusation pierces Heaven! The wretched plead against us; multitudes Countless and vehement, the sons of God, Our brethren! Like a cloud that travels on, Steamed up from Cairo's swamps of pestilence, Even so, my countrymen! have we gone forth And borne to distant tribes slavery and pangs, And, deadlier far, our vices, whose deep taint With slow perdition murders the whole man, His body and his soul! Meanwhile, at home, All individual dignity and power Engulfed in Courts, Committees, Institutions, Associations and Societies, A vain, speech-mouthing, speech-reporting Guild, One Benefit-Club for mutual flattery, We have drunk up, demure as at a grace, Pollutions from the brimming cup of wealth; Contemptuous of all honourable rule, Yet bartering freedom and the poor man's life For gold, as at a market! The sweet words Of Christian promise, words that even yet Might stem destruction, were they wisely preached, Are muttered o'er by men, whose tones proclaim How flat and wearisome they feel their trade: Rank scoffers some, but most too indolent To deem them falsehoods or to know their truth. Oh! blasphemous! the Book of Life is made A superstitious instrument, on which We gabble o'er the oaths we mean to break; For all must swear -all and in every place, College and wharf, council and justice-court; All, all must swear, the briber and the bribed, Merchant and lawyer, senator and priest, The rich, the poor, the old man and the young; All, all make up one scheme of perjury, That faith doth reel; the very name of God Sounds like a juggler's charm; and, bold with joy, Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, Sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, Drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, And hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, Cries out, "Where is it?" Thankless too for peace, (Peace long preserved by fleets and perilous seas) Secure from actual warfare, we have loved To swell the war-whoop, passionate for war! Alas! for ages ignorant of all Its ghastlier workings, (famine or blue plague, Battle, or siege, or flight through wintry snows,) We, this whole people, have been clamorous For war and bloodshed; animating sports, The which we pay for as a thing to talk of, Spectators and not combatants! No guess Anticipative of a wrong unfelt, No speculation on contingency, However dim and vague, too vague and dim To yield a justifying cause; and forth, (Stuffed out with big preamble, holy names, And adjurations of the God in Heaven,) We send our mandates for the certain death Of thousands and ten thousands! Boys and girls, And women, that would groan to see a child Pull off an insect's leg, all read of war, The best amusement for our morning meal! The poor wretch, who has learnt his only prayers From curses, who knows scarcely words enough To ask a blessing from his Heavenly Father, Becomes a fluent phraseman, absolute And technical in v
I need help with my reflective essay. I need someone to proofread it and maybe if someone can help me make this story come to an end that would be awesome!.... the rest of what i wanna write about is how i showed tenacity in the face of adversity and found the courage to keep going on this journey... also what actually happened was after we were bushwhacking through the woods we had to cross over about a mile and a half of dead-fall and then sidestep along a sketchy rockside with the rushing Rio Grande below us!!! Any help is greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance!!!! It was another summer day in the Colorado Rockies. I woke to the smell of hash browns slow cooked over a fire. The tantalizing aroma dragged me out of bed and into the grandeur of the mountainside. I washed my face in the nearby stream and prepared myself for the day ahead of me. “You want any cocoa David?” Jeff asked. “Of course,” I replied. It was the perfect time in the morning. The sun shone through the trees, but the morning frost hadn’t quite melted, so a sparkling layer of mist glistened in the illuminated green floor. Jeff, the guides, and I sat around the fire until Eric and Jessiah were finished getting ready. “Hurry it up guys,” Gabe, one of the guides, said. “We’ve gotta step it up today.” We packed up our things, cleaned up the campsite, and started on our way. Our mission was to traverse through 30 miles of the Rockies and reach a peak altitude of 15,000 feet in one week. It had already been three days and we were a little behind the halfway mark. I knew today was going to a strenuous journey. What I didn’t know, was that today was going to be the most excruciating day yet. We started with light trekking on a clearly marked trail surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery Colorado had to offer. There were 6 of us on this trip, 3 of us were experienced hikers, and 3 were guides. Between us we had quite a bit of experience hiking these kinds of terrains, and today started with a seemingly easy trail. I noticed one of the guides kept getting the map out and looking around like they were trying to get reference points for their map. I was getting a little concerned that we were a little off the trail, nothing more serious than that. My concern turned to a wave of fear when I had heard Gabe whisper rather nervously, "What do we going to do? I mean... what are we going to do? I can't find a single reference point on this map?!?!" "Shhh, lower your voice, Gabe, we don't want to panic the rest of the group!" Too late, I thought, I was already panicked. They went on to explain that we somehow made a wrong turn yesterday and that now it’s too late to turn back. “We’ll have to bushwhack through the forest and hope that we make our way back on track.” Jessiah said as he took out his machete. One by one the tree limbs hit the ground. At first I thought this might be fun, but then agonizing pains struck my body with such ferocity that my mirth abated and I thought otherwise. This continued for about three hours, the insects were ruthless as we tried making our way through the endless forest. Nightfall was rapidly approaching, so we cleared the best area we could to set up our tents. A shock of confusion and anguish abruptly hit me. I realized that we were lost in the middle of the forest, maybe to never be found again.
I'm a young teen amateur when it comes to writing. I don't normally write more like read. I got inspired to write this story from an Ellen Hopkins book I was reading which short of reminded me of my own life. This isn't the whole thing or anything, it's what I've gotten so far. I wrote this in the last fifteen minutes. In the beginning my main character Adalyn is sixteen-years-old, and her mother, Catherine, gets killed in a car accident. Which is what she is telling you about in the beginning, This is all I've gotten so far, and I'm just wondering if any of you think it's interesting. Please keep in mind I am an amateur and don't have an experience with writing. Thanks in Advance. Have you ever felt a jolting shock rush through your entire body? Like an adrenaline rush flooding through your veins as if being in a getaway car doing one-eighty down the highway? I have. What gave me this wonderful exhilarating feeling? The sweet taste of my own freedom. Have you ever felt alone, scared, fearless with a slight bit of desperation hinting in your everlasting touch, in attempt to growing up fast? I am. I wasn't always this way, it just seemed to all happen after my mothers passing. I can remember it just like yesterday... The sky was painted with the colors of the sunset and the wind, pleading for a touch that never could have prowled my body. My eyes fluttered softly, yet quickly, as if it was an ordeal that required much effort. The sound of the wind echoing throughout my ears as it froze the tops of my cheeks to a prefect rosy red color. I looked out to the distant forest trees covered with moss and fadeout climbing vines that ran up the big red oak trees, snow flurries started to fall. It was in mid January, coldest time of year in my opinion, roads were always iced here this time of year. I'd been alone all day, mom at work and dad on the road trucking. I ran my fingers throughout my strawberry ringlet curls, and rubbed my warm hands across my cheeks in attempt to weaken frostbite. Feeling the warmness minus the cold sinking into my paper-thin blouse, I rapped my lightweight windbreaker around my scrawny waste and drifted off into space catching snow flurries on my tongue. I stayed that way for half an hour until I couldn't feel my finger tips anymore. This was the time of day I wish I had friends to hangout with. Being a loner isn't the greatest feeling in the world. More like the world has fallen on top of you and no matter how much you struggle to get out from under, it doesn't shift, and your stuck without a chance of escaping. Instead, I do this, drift off into space and find that one little happy place no one can disturb. It's frustrating to me, I'm alone almost twenty-four seven. They say some time to yourself is good, but, not time by yourself all the time is healthy. Some say being alone so much will make you go crazy. If I go crazy I see myself becoming that strange old man from that 3 Doors Down video. No friends walking around in nothing but my underwear and sneakers until I hear a cry for help and transform into a superhero to save the day. Except I'd be the crazy loser with nothing but sneakers on searching for the Kryptonite to save myself from unreasonable expectations this world has for us. I raised my head to the sky as the depths of the darkness started to peep through. The flurries have stopped as the night stars depart through the opening of beyond. I gaze into the dark and let out a deep breath and watch the white smoke blow throughout my pasty chapped lips into mist cold air. “What are you doing?” Denver called from the glassed doorway. “None of your business sum,” Denver's my self-centered, so called logical unmanageably adaptable sister's boyfriend; who has the idea of me being socially awkward because I choose not to be like my sister. If I ever had to pick a guy for Anna, if wouldn't be anything like Denver. He's what most girls lust for. The infinite beautiful sum of the earth type of guy. He's already cheated on Anna three times with three people who clammed to be close. What do you think? This is all I've gotten so far. l0l, thanks. And my mistake I didn't mean to put 15 minutes.
Someone please help me analyze the meaning of this poem? I also need to analyze why this author's depiction of the way the narrator copes with his potential future is convincing? Some called it the Summer of Love, & although the clustered, Motionless leaves that overhung the streets looked the same As ever, the same as they did every summer, in 1967, Anybody with three dollars could have a vision. And who wouldn’t want to know what it felt like to be A cedar waxwing landing with a flutter of gray wings In a spruce tree, & then disappearing into it, For only three dollars? And now I know; its flight is ecstasy. No matter how I look at it, I also now know that The short life of a cedar waxwing is more pure pleasure Than anyone alive can still be sane, & bear. And remember, a cedar waxwing doesn’t mean a thing, Qua cedar or qua waxwing, nor could it have earned That kind of pleasure by working to become a better Cedar waxwing. They’re all the same. Show me a bad cedar waxwing, for example, & I mean A really morally corrupted cedar waxwing, & you’ll commend The cage they have reserved for you, resembling heaven. Some people spent their lives then, having visions. But in my case, the morning after I dropped mescaline I had to spray Johnson grass in a vineyard of Thompson Seedless My father owned—& so, still feeling the holiness of all things Living, holding the spray gun in one hand & driving with the other, The tractor pulling the spray rig & its sputtering motor— Row after row, I sprayed each weed I found That looked enough like Johnson grass, a thing alive that’s good For nothing at all, with a mixture of malathion & diesel fuel, And said to each tall weed, as I coated it with a lethal mist, Dominus vobiscum, &, sometimes, mea culpa, until It seemed boring to apologize to weeds, & insincere as well. For in a day or so, no more than that, the weeds would turn Disgusting hues of yellowish orange & wither away. I still felt The bird’s flight in my body when I thought about it, the wing ache, Lifting heaven, locating itself somewhere just above my slumped Shoulders, & part of me taking wind. I’d feel it at odd moments After that on those long days I spent shoveling vines, driving trucks And tractors, helping swamp fruit out of one orchard Or another, but as the summer went on, I felt it less and less. As the summer went on, some were drafted, some enlisted In a generation that would not stop falling, a generation Of leaves sticking to body bags, & when they turned them Over, they floated back to us on television, even then, In the Summer of Love, in 1967, When riot police waited beyond the doors of perception, And the best thing one could do was get arrested. http://www.blackbird.vcu.edu/v4n2/poetry/levis_l/1967.htm

Frogs, Lice and Worse Rats were by no means the only source of infection and nuisance. Lice were a never-ending problem, breeding in the seams of filthy clothing and causing men to itch unceasingly.Even when clothing was periodically washed and deloused, lice eggs invariably remained hidden in the seams; within a few hours of the clothes being re-worn the body heat generated would cause the eggs to hatch.Lice caused Trench Fever, a particularly painful disease that began suddenly with severe pain followed by high fever. Recovery - away from the trenches - took up to twelve weeks. Lice were not actually identified as the culprit of Trench Fever until 1918.Frogs by the score were found in shell holes covered in water; they were also found in the base of trenches. Slugs and horned beetles crowded the sides of the trench.Many men chose to shave their heads entirely to avoid another prevalent scourge: nits.Trench Foot was another medical condition peculiar to trench life. It was a fungal infection of the feet caused by cold, wet and unsanitary trench conditions. It could turn gangrenous and result in amputation. Trench Foot was more of a problem at the start of trench warfare; as conditions improved in 1915 it rapidly faded, although a trickle of cases continued throughout the war. The Trench Cycle Typically, a battalion would be expected to serve a spell in the front line. This would be followed by a stint spent in support, and then in reserve lines. A period of rest would follow - generally short in duration - before the whole cycle of trench duty would start afresh.In reality the cycle was determined by the necessities of the situation. Even while at rest men might find themselves tasked with duties that placed them in the line of fire.Others would spend far longer in the front line than usual, usually in the more 'busy' sectors as an example - and the numbers varied widely - a man might expect in a year to spend some 70 days in the front line, with another 30 in nearby support trenches. A further 120 might be spent in reserve. Only 70 days might be spent at rest. The amount of leave varied, with perhaps two weeks being granted during the year. Stand To and the Morning Hate The daily routine of life in the trenches began with the morning 'stand to'. An hour before dawn everyone was roused from slumber by the company orderly officer and sergeant and ordered to climb up on the fire step to guard against a dawn raid by the enemy, bayonets fixed.This policy of stand to was adopted by both sides, and despite the knowledge that each side prepared itself for raids or attacks timed at dawn, many were actually carried out at this time.Accompanying stand to, as the light grew, was the daily ritual often termed the 'morning hate'.Both sides would often relieve the tension of the early hours with machine gun fire, shelling and small arms fire, directed into the mist to their front: this made doubly sure of safety at dawn.
I'm really looking to try out new products. My makeup is either running out, expired or I'm just plain tired of them. I want new ideas. So, please tell me what's in your makeup bag, even if it has nothing to do with makeup. Also, brush names and brush brands would be nice too.

I want to learn how better to control my dreams while in them. I've always had rather lucid dreams. When I was a kid, I'd dream I lived that next day of school, then wake up feeling disoriented and as if I was the cruelly played victim of deja vu. Now, being 23, this sort of dreaming still happens, perhaps every two weeks. It's weird when it's a normal dream, but even weirder when, after waking up, I find myself reflexively looking for non-existent wolf statues, having the nagging feeling that I should put the cool blue eagle in my birdwatching book, or feeling nervous about walking past a certain dark doorway. These back-of-my-mind urges to react to what I dreamt about as if they were real can unconciously last up to 3 to 4 days. I don't believe in fairies, btw, or God or ghosts, though I do enjoy reading a lot of fiction and science fiction, and have a very active imagination. Usually my dreams are pretty cool or nice-but-forgotten quickly, but maybe 2 to 3 a week are nightmares. I'm not overly stress or worried - these nightmares will just be about something random in relation to a book or movie. Examples such as being chased by vampires OR being a vampire and staked (by unicorns for some reason), falling and then waking up violently when my whole body feels like it "moved" (I've read about why that happens), being trapped in a Stephen King-type mist, etc. I'd like to learn how to be more aware of the fact that I'm dreaming, learn how to control the dream or wake myself up on purpose. I mean, if I want to stay in the dream/ mare, I should at least be able to grab a sword if I want to, right? There have been times when my dreams on their own or combined with wearier-then-usual sleep causes me to wake up and not perform as well at work, think morning was evening and vice versa ( I use a military time clock), or, rarely, lie in the dark sure that I wouldn't be able to move safely for some reason or another. I don't suffer from that thing where people think a succubus or some such is sitting on their chest, nor do I think I have what people call "night terrors", nor do I sleep walk (though my boyfriend says I seem to make little sounds and/ or distressed sounds he seems to be able to interpret and respond to). I've also been recommended things like calea zacatechichi, which is something you can take in a tea or pill form to have super lucid dreams. Does anyone have experience with any of this? The herbs? The dreaming? Tips? Books? I can see a situation or two when this sort of dreaming could be detrimental, even somehow dangerous, so any help would be appreciated.
it is called THE SHADOW SOCIETY: THE PROTECTOR It is about a secret society/academy training young children to become warriors that are fast and hide in the shadows (almost like ninja) this is called THE SHADOW SOCIETY. a boy called Talon Jackson has come to Russia/Siberia on a school trip with his younger brother Tyler, but then he and his brother ran away without the teachers knowing, and took a bus not knowing where they were going( talon and Tyler are the only ones left in their family and have nothing nice to get back to in England except for bullies and care workers). so they are on the bus which was driving through a surrounding forest and the bus spins out of control and crashes because something has hit it. mutant creature (which will be explained later) start banging on the window and try to get into the bus and attacks everyone inside. Talon breaks the bus window and jumps out of the bus with his brother and begins to run into the forest. Talon and his brother then split up because the creatures begin to chase him into the forests, he falls down a sort of cliff and becomes unconscious. he wakes up in a bed not knowing where he is. he meets two people. Aline Dorofei- she is beautiful, and very funny, what every girl would want to be and her brother is called: Alexander Dorofei- he is bold and very handsome, he is stubborn and acts like he has no heart but that soon changes when he meets talon. their father Morik Dorofei is the master of the academy and wants Alexander to be a warrior superior to all but Alexander has other ideas.(Alexanders mother Isabella is dead by the way). Alexander was given a kind of necklace with a rune and the rune means the protector thus giving you the title. They are against another school called THE MIST MOUNTAIN ACADEMY and has a master called viktor Derkov, he has two daughters- Nicola Derkov -who is smart witty and seductive and Alana- who just wants true power and to rule everyone. and both academies despise one another. back to what i was saying about mutants: Talon finds out that they are experiments- they change their body parts and change their normal teeth and turn them into sharp ones and turning them into weapons, but this means hurting any women that does not agree with the the shadow societies rules. in the end their is a huge war between the two academies and everything ends in bloodshed. so tell me what you think of it. and because this is set in Russia and in the mountains and forests, and where its cold and dark so can you tell me a place in Russia that has that kind of landscape and environment. i am 14 years ald just so you know.
Lots of people call me a shit writer but I a determined to write something good. Don't be afraid to a bad review. The story I am writing is called SECT and it is about a group of killer clowns. CHAPTER ONE Last night I saw a man. At least I think he was a man. He had a pale face with red crosses on the eyes. Around his mouth was a black smile in paint. I think he had an afro, but it might have been a wig. I say this because it was pink, and I doubt such thing as pink hair. It looked like he was wearing pink spotted pajamas , but I can't be sure. I wasn't scared - Just freaked out. Freaked out not because of his unique appearance, but because he was stealing my crops. That means this thing had been in my garden, on my property every month. What was he? What did he want? I did not know. "Hey! Get away from my crops, you motherfucker!" I screamed until my throat was raw. He didn't say anything - Just stared at me with those red cross eyes. "I'll give you to the count of three, and then I'm getting my shot gun!” I didn't mean this - I'd never kill anything created by the lord - so I could only hope he ran back where he came from. But he didn't. Instead, he ran towards me. No. He didn't run. He fucking sprinted. When his body landed on top of me I'd decided that he wasn't human: His pupils were black, and he had fangs. I also decided that he wasn't created by the lord, either, so this is what I did next - I lifted my arms in front of my face and struggled to clutch the sides of his head. I then pulled left and managed to break his neck. Life completely sprung out from the man, and the body flopped lifelessly in my arms. From then on, I dug a hole, I threw him inside and I buried him. Little did I know, I'd just made the biggest mistake in my life. CHAPTER TWO That was two weeks ago. Nothing has stolen my crops since... But I still wonder. I'm in the bathroom now, brushing my teeth. The prickly white brush swarms its way through my teeth and searches for bacteria. Whilst cleansing the bones in my mouth, I feel obliged to stare at my reflection in the mirror. My eyes seem to sparkle back at me, and my shaggy blonde hair swishes across my forehead. I'm wearing my black sun hat and my red handkerchief. I finish off brushing in between my molars, take my toothbrush from my mouth and place it back on the sink. I've got to go out to the market to get some carrot seeds. On my way out of the front door, I eye my crops vigorously, as I do every time I leave the house. When I get back from the market, I notice my crops have disappeared. Now I’m nervous. I slowly arch my head and peer over to the door. There is a small piece of paper nailed to the wood. I walk over to the front door and take a closer look. The message reads: The un-pale mist creates tension in the rift. I scrunch my face up in confusion, trying to make sense of this nonsense. I killed the demon that stole my crops two weeks ago! …But maybe there are more. What kind of fucked up organization gathers people to dress as monsters and steal farmer’s crops? Very slowly I begin to walk around the house towards the back garden. Although I probably don't need to, I try to keep as quiet as I can. If another one of those things took my crops they could be readying a surprise attack. I stop at a dirt hole in the ground – It’s the very place I buried the first demon. Either this some kind of sick joke or some weird shit has started going down. Because the only thing in the dirt is another note. This one reads the exact same thing: The un-pale mist creates tension in the rift. I bend down onto my knees and reach into the pit. I take the note and stare at it. The un-pale mist. If something isn’t pale, it’s dark. So the black mist creates tension in the rift. What’s a rift? Maybe it’s a- wait. What am I doing? This is a sick joke, by some very sick people.
