Overview

The genius of Lactantius suffers a sad transformation when unclothed of
vernacular and stripped of the idiomatic graces of his style. But the
intelligent reader will be sure to compare this translation with the
Latinity of the original, and to recur to it often for the enjoyment of
its charming rhetoric, and of the high sentiment it so nobly enforces
and adorns. This volume will be the favourite of the series with many.
The writings of the Christian Tully alone make up more than half of its
contents; and it is supremely refreshing to reach, at last, an author
who chronicles the triumph of the Gospel [1] over "Herod and Pontius
Pilate;" over the heathen in their "rage," and the people in their
"vain imaginings;" over "the kings of the earth who stood up, and the
rulers who were gathered together against the Lord and against His
Christ."

    Animatronic Hearts: Chapter 2

    PEARL POV<p>When I was switched back on to Free Roaming Mode, I heard a door shut and click behind me. I looked over at my brother, his head turned to the left and mouth gaping, as if he was trying to speak before being put into Sleep Mode. The humans must have expected me to switch Diamond back. So I did.<p>Diamond blinked his blue plastic eyelids and swiveled his head.<br>"Where are we?" he asked.<br>"I don't know..."<br>We were in a large room, with tables scattered around. In a corner stood a stage decorated with stars.<br>Diamond looked down, and went, "Oh my manufacturer..."<br>I looked at what we were standing on. It was a welcoming mat, well-worn by years of being stepped on by shoe-clad human feet. I could still make out the faded words, though.<p>"Welcome to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza!"<p>The resturant had a dark and disturbing reputation, even among animatronics. I began quaking, metal joints clacking.<br>"Oh no..." I ran towards the door and tried to open it, but it was locked.<br>"Stand aside! I'm gonna bust us outta here!" Diamond took on a position similiar to a bull preparing to charge with his de<_>adly sharp horns. He charged at the door, and fell to the side. As my brother is quadruped, he couldn't get up by himself. I helped him up to his feet.<br>"What are we gonna do?" I asked, growing more afraid by the minute.<br>"We'll have to check for more openings, like a window. We can grab a hard object and smash the glass of a window, should we encounter one." We turned to do so, only to encounter an animatronic. It was lavender, with bucked-teeth and long ears, giving it the appearance of a rabbit. But the disturbing thing was his eyes. They were completely raven black, save for tiny white pupils.<br>:SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!:<br>"AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!"<br>I covered my eyes, frightened. Then suddenly, it started laughing.<br>"Hahaha! You should've seen the look on your faces!"<br>"Da he<_>ck?" Diamond remarked.<br>"Are-are going to ki<_>ll us?" I asked, looking up from my clawed hands.<br>"What? Of course not! What makes you think that?"<br>"You ki<_>lled humans!" protested Diamond.<br>"Not intentionally. We weren't used to seeing humans after hours when the pizzeria was still running, so we thought they were na<_>ked endoskeletons. And we go NU<_>TS trying to get it into a suit, only to discover by morning that it was actually a person we stuffed into the suit."<br>A yellow animatronic, appearing as a chicken with violet eyes and a bib embroidiered with the words "Let's eat!" stepped in.<br>"Bonnie, what's going on?" the animatronic asked, decidedly feminine.<br>"Yo, Chica! We got newcomers!"<br>Chica groaned. "Let me guess, you jumpscared them? Don't you know how rude it is?"<br>"It was still funny," Bonnie replied.<br>"Just get your normal face back on," she said, shoving him.<br>"Sheesh. You don't have to be bossy." Bonnie walked to the back of the stage.<br>"Sorry about that. Bonnie the Bunny is mischievious, but he tends to go too far. I'm Chica the Chicken, by the way."<br>"I'm Diamond the Dialga. This is my sister, Pearl the Palkia."<br>"Hello!" I greeted Chica cheerfully, having came over the shock of Bonnie's sudden appearance.<br>"Mind if I give you a tour of the place?" she asked.<br>"Yeah. That'll be great," my brother responded.
