Run like you've never run before...
One of the fowl beasts bites my hand, and I pull back in shock, only making it worse.
Because if you don't...

Amethyst Owls, (again a temporary title)
Haven't got a cut for this one..
Umm basic summary:
Lydia Maddison is anything but ordinary, but she already knows that. Locked away in Limbo for a decade and a half, she has had plenty of time to figure it out.
One night, men of the Millose Empire attempt to take her from Limbo for execution, but the unexpected seems to have chosen that night to shine.
In a world she doesn't know, with no friends and too many enemies, can Lydia unlock the true secrets of her kind?
Tell me which one to write first, I just simply can't decide. Iwant any feedback on them as initial ideas, too:)
