Outside magazine
“A classic outdoor manual. ... Written by John Wiseman, former survival instructor for Britain’s elite Special Air Service (an all-conditions strike force considered by some to be tougher than the U.S. Navy SEALs), the book addresses every conceivable disaster scenario. ... Don’t leave home without it.”
Washington Post
“This step-by-step survival bible has... prepared [me] for anything. ... This edition’s most valuable lessons arrive in its new ‘Urban Survival’ section, which features tactics for countering espionage and dealing with urban animal attacks.”

    D.Y.H.M?~blue exo fanfic Chapter 3

    Me: *upstaires and falls through the hole I made a 1-2 years back and lands on the floor* ow! Rin, seriously you have to get that thing fixed dude!<p>
    Rin: *reading a manga* I dont feel like it... Kuro likes jump through it...<p>
    Me: -,- *face palm* on to the fic hope you guys enjoy. Have some OC's in here so yeah!!<p>
    Rin's POV<p>
    We are going on a mission this weekend. A real mission, not like when we were exwires. I put on my black exorcist jacket. I grab my katana and let kuro get on my shoulder.<p>
    "Ready Kuro?" I asked.<p>
    /"Yeah!"/ Kuro meowed.<p>
    I head to the meeting place. I see Izumo, Shiemi, Shura, Bon, Miwa, Shima, that weird puppet kid I forgot the name of, Aki, Chisato, another excorsit, and Dan. I get a couple glares but ignore them.<p>
    "Okay brats, there has been reports of three high level demon running amok in this hotel. They seem to be sticking together so I have made teams," Shura said, "team 1; Miwa and Izumo, team 2; Shima and puppet boy, team 3; Dan, Chisato and Aki, team 4; Bon and Rin. Now get moving!"<p>
    Why Bon? He hated me more than anyone. We have to search the perimiter while the others search the inside of the hotel and outside of the hotel.<p>
    "Why are you still trying to become an excorsit?" Bon suddenly asked with venom in his words.<p>
    "Why do you still hate me?" I shot back.<p>
    This was going to be he<_>ll.<p>
    End<p>
    Me: how was it? suggestions are appreciated.
