The Babysitting BodyguardEven as she was standing there Alice had a bit of hard time believing this. In all honesty she was a soldier, through and through. She’d been trained along with her sisters ever since she’d been placed at the School at about 3 years of age (though nobody knew for sure how old any of them were). Even if she’d not been on top of the class she knew how to use quite an arsenal of weapons, melee combat, tactics as well as the mentality needed to stay sane during something like war.
And here she was, a babysitter.
Sure, General Sol had been kind enough to call it an escort mission and bodyguard-position, but that didn’t change the simple fact of what it was. But if it was anything that Alice was it was stubborn, and she’d be damned if she didn’t complete this test! Even if it was testing her patience in way she’d never thought possible…

A report on GolemsGolems
A golem in itself is a creature made of dead material that has been granted life by human hand. Some define it so that the creature has to be made of mud, while others disagree, so this report will include all varieties.
The word “Golem” means “incomplete/unfinished” in Hebrew.
While the most known one is the golem made of mud by rabbi Eliyahu of Chelm, one can find them mentioned in many places, some centuries older than the term Golem (which is mostly used by the Jewish religion).

In modern times the tales of Frankenstein’s monster and humane robots are still told.

Just one last wishThe sky was clear this night, and the halfmoon covered the whole world in a shimmering, pearly white light. The snow that had started to fall around noon now glimmered blue, almost competing with the stars so high above.
Not all stars this night stayed still however; here and there a golden streak could be seen, as the tail of a tiny night-light. The falling stars who all just waited for someone to call out to them with a wish, a dream, something to fulfill that would make them happy! Even as people fell asleep with happy, golden dreams after a whole day of fun and games, friends and laughter, the stars continued to hope for someone to notice them, some human life that would see…
This night a few of them were lucky, since not all children wanted to go to bed after the first day with proper snow, and not all adults acknowledged that they had work the next day. The winter-spirit of fun seemed to get to most of them, and more than one were standing by the windows, saw the stars and
