They are said to be guardian spirits of nature who can invoke both blessings and curses. In the provincial areas of Cebu, the older generation would say that before modern times these mystical creatures had beautiful dresses, elegant tableware, and fantastical jewelry. And the wonderful thing was that locals could borrow these for weddings and special occasions. Just as long as you return them. How do the locals ask to borrow is a secret. And after asking the locals would then find the items either below trees or on tree stumps. The first story tells about the tragedy of a Royal Diwata, Princess Isabel.

A magical system! Gods and goddesses! Elves and leprechauns! Mages and warriors! Complicated women! Monsters and supernaturals! World wars! Epic crossovers! How much can little old Pete handle? A wealthy, spoiled, and obese kid is reincarnated into the lore of his favorite legendary hero. However, things take a dark turn, spiraling into a ridiculously bizarre world that wants to eat him up alive! In the new world, Robin Hood is not just a thief, but the chosen savior. He takes from the rich and gives to the poor. Saves damsels in distress. Or is it the other way round? ------------------------------------------------------- This is my 2nd story on WN and a WSA 2022 entry. My first story GOD FORMULA, was a WPC winner. -------------------------------------------------------- Read this: If you are a fan of high fantasy, folklore, isekai and reincarnation. There is a system in this story, but the plot does not rely heavily on it. There will be a pull of LitRPG and a push of GameLit. You can expect crossover of fantasy elements from other tropes. This story will be a path-breaking retelling of the Robin Hood myth and legend with a heavy dose of isekai and fantasy. If this description appeals to you, Bon-Appetit! --------------------------------------------------------
"When Chinese New Year happens, that's the only time I get to see him." - AX Althea Xi, an orphan and a freelance article writer in most Shanghai mainland broadcasting and newspaper companies wanted to become a famous top author in China through an international competition that will end before the new year of 2023. She came up with the decision to use the 'The Legend of the Cursed Dragon' as her setting for her work, in which her deceased grandmother always told her when it was nighttime when she was just a kid. But fate turned the tables around when she has been disqualified from the competition as soon as she used the prohibited folklore. She used that opportunity to abandon the story that was etched through her mind for a long time by throwing the bejeweled box that she was forbidden to open to the Yangtze River. Her deceased grandmother had been guarding it since her teenage years, and she knew that the box and the legend had been bringing her a stroke of bad luck all throughout her life. But before she could even leave the river, she accidentally tripped through rocks and fell down on the deep waters. She swam upwards with all her might, but little did she know, she was being transported through the year 1904, where a Chinese New Year celebration was happening on the side of the river. --------------------------- A LITTLE EXCERPT: "I exude a powerful charm I never imagined that would save you." "It was because of the power of love we have on each other." He then claimed her lips in the middle of the rain while the rivers of the Yangtze River were evident. He held onto her waist after a while. And she scraped her fingernails on his hair. They both love each other, they both do. ---------------------------- DISCLAIMER: The characters portrayed in this drama are fictitious. Organizations, names, places, and situations are based on imagination. The story used Chinese New Year as a reference for the Chinese New Year contest, and no distortion of historical resources had been made. Only the parallels of the worlds had been used, and the reality of Chinese mythology had been inked through this novel. The cover's background rights reserved through Pinterest artworks.

The hair on my skin rose and I shuddered under his touch. I immediately drew my hand back. "It looks good on you .... Katherine." He complimented and his enchanting gaze seemed to bewitch me. "Thankyou" I said, without even giving it a second thought. Immediately I wanted to take that 'thankyou' back. Thank you? Of all the things I could have said, "thankyou" was the worst. I didn't want Lucas thinking that I liked his compliment. It didn't take much thinking to realize that he was trouble, and I had enough trouble looming, no need to invite more. "And I prefer Kat." I corrected, realizing that he had called me Katherine earlier. "Why not Katherine?" His gaze looked appraising. "Cause it's boring." I answered and turned towards the chalkboard. "I think it's beautiful." His reply caught me off guard and I turned sideways, he was still staring at me intently, with those dazzling charcoal grey eyes.] * * * * * Excerpt 2, [He shifted in his seat and his eyes met mine. "I believe there's always more to everything than it meets the eye." He was inclining towards me now. "Do you not believe in witches?" "I don't. . ." I lied. "They only exists in folklores and myths." I added to make my lie more convincing. I noticed his lips turn into a smile but it faded away the second he looked at me. "Are you sure?" He raised an eyebrow. "Do things out of blue not elevate your curiousity?" "They do." I replied. In fact, everything happening lately had my curiosity skyrocketed. "And have you ever tried to find answers to those questions? If you do find the answers. . ." He leaned in closer. "I bet you won't be disappointed." He was unnecessarily close, his husky voice went straight into my ears. He shifted back in his seat and put his hands behind his head. There was a smirk plastered on his lips and for some reasons I had a feeling that he had challenged me to some mysterious quest.] * * * * *
