It rained from the high heavens as if the sea itself had been taken and then thrown over the empire. No noise was t be heard except for the rushing of the rain. It was dark, wet and cold and the young women in the inn wondered if she was going ot see any costomers in the near future.
Proberbly not, she thought to herself, not with that thing lurking in the woods.
She looked out the window and listened to the rainfall.
To her great suprise she heard something else too - could it be...?
A large figure steped out of the curtain of the rain and into the inn.
The person shook herself and threw off the dripping wet strawcloak they were wearing.
Underneath was a tall muscular women in ragged clothing with black windswept hair.
She was armed to the teeth, to her right she had a knife, to her right a katana and a wakizashi and on her back the innkeeper saw a second katana, that seemed to be of exeptional craftsmenship.
The innkeeper approached the samurai with great care:"Greetings my Lady. what can we offer you?"
The women brushed back her hair with her hand and turned to the speaker.
Her left eye was of a darkish brown, but the other, the odd eye, was of a bright, piercing grey.
And around her neck she was wearing a small jade pendant in the shape of a crabs pincer - a Witch-Hunter. The inkeeper felt very cold all out of the sudden.
The women spoke in a rough voice:"I heard you had some problems in the woods."
The other women wanted to answere, but her husband, who had come out of a backroom, interrupted her.
"I'm terribly sorry, this is a misunderstanding. We merely wished the road to be patroled more regularly so that more people may find the way to our humble establishment. Absolutly nothing for you to be concerned with, my Lady."
The Witch-Huntress looked at the man and then back at his wife, who looked to the ground imidietly.
"I see. Well then...thank you for the hospitality.", she said with a bare minimum of kindness. The women picked up her strawcloak, sholdered it and walked out into the rain again.

Outside Osana visibly walked past the open window, rested her back against the wall and listened.
"I told you it was a bad idea to tell anyone of them!"
"But she might be able to do it."
"Haven't you heard the stories? If they think this place is taintd the will burn the entire village to the ground and torture and disect us! Do you want that to happen?"
"No, but I am afraid to go to the woods with that thing around."
"That thing at the northern river is not a threat to anybody, but this women is."

The northern river...not much, but it was a place to start the search.
She took a deep breath and started walking, between the houses straight north into the woods.
After about half an houre walking through the freezing rain she reached the river.
Originally this might have been more of a rivulet than a river, but the endless rain made it grown and now the otherside was three to four sword-lengths away. The rain had made it nigh on impossible to find tracks, but it was very hard to miss the inky black spots leading up the river.
She walked beside the marks, while carefully avoiding stepping in them and after a short while she found the origine of the marks.
The quadruped shape suggested that the creature once had been a deer or a pony or something like that, but nowadays It had mutated out of shape.
The thing was standing on all fours with a fith limb coming out of the right side of its distorted neck. It had spikes and horns growning on its forehead and its mouth was packed with jagged fangs, that were dripping with the foul black ichor she had seen before. The thing turned and looked at her and released something that loosely resembeled a neighing.
Osana did not need the help of her jadependant to see that this creature has been corrupted by the tain, or to realise that this poor thing was beyond salvation.
With out thinking twice she drew the blade from her back and charged the monster.
The monster in turn reared up and tried to hit her with its three frontal limbs.
Osana landed a hit on the creatures stomach before one of the limbs hit her sword and it dropped out of her hand. She tried to grab it, but the creature ran at her and she fell flat on her back, as the mutant attempted to trampel her. She managed to roll to the side just before the thing could crush her face on the ground. The huntress came up next to a tree, with the creature side righ infront of her and with every little piece of her strength that she could muster she threw herself against the thing and pushed it into the river where it submerged right away.
She didn't loose any time, she grabbed her sword just as the creature emerged from the river again.
"Sei-ya!"
With a single slice of the blade she send the things head flying. The body fell back into the river and quickly drifted down the river and out of sight. She walked over to where the head had landed, the creatures clouded eye looked towards the dark sky. Osana kicked the head into the river to follow the rest of the thing.
"Rest in peace."

The innkeeper heard something moving in the rain again. Concerned she looked to the entrence and was shocked when she saw the woman she had seen earlier, now covered in mud and blood.
Osana threw of her strawcloak and hat and then dragged them to the fire where she dropped her weapons aswell and set down. The innkeeper rushed to her side.
"M-my Lady, what happened to you?"
The huntress massaged her shoulder with her eyes closed, before answereing.
"I solved your problem at the river."
"The river...You heard us?!", now the woman was terrified.
"Please, my Lady, forgive my husband, he-he did not know...he...please..."
"Yeahyeahyeah...", interrupted Osana "Just bring me some food, please."
Osana wasn't really hungry, she just wanted the woman to shut up, but the innkeeper rushed away to satisfy her every need, giving her a little time to look into the fire and remember something her Sensei told her...

"If you gaze into the shadows for too long the shadows also gaze into you."
Osana never fully understood the meaning of those words.
"After all, I'm just killing monsters."

Dear President of the Eurogroup,

Over the last five years, the people of Greece have exerted remarkable efforts in economic adjustment. The new government is committed to a broader and deeper reform process aimed at durably improving growth and employment prospects, achieving debt sustainability and financial stability, enhancing social fairness and mitigating the significant social cost of the ongoing crisis.

The Greek authorities recognise that the procedures agreed by the previous governments were interrupted by the recent presidential and general elections and that, as a result, several of the technical arrangements have been invalidated. The Greek authorities honour Greece's financial obligations to all its creditors as well as state our intention to cooperate with our partners in order to avert technical impediments in the context of the Master Facility Agreement which we recognise as binding vis-a-vis its financial and procedural content.

In this context, the Greek authorities are now applying for the extension of the Master Financial Assistance Facility Agreement for a period of six months from its termination during which period we shall proceed jointly, and making best use of given flexibility in the current arrangement, toward its successful conclusion and review on the basis of the proposals of, on the one hand, the Greek government and, on the other, the institutions.

The purpose of the requested six-month extension of the Agreement's duration is:

(a) To agree the mutually acceptable financial and administrative terms the implementation of which, in collaboration with the institutions, will stabilise Greece's fiscal position, attain appropriate primary fiscal surpluses, guarantee debt stability and assist in the attainment of fiscal targets for 2015 that take into account the present economic situation.

(b) To ensure, working closely with our European and international partners, that any new measures be fully funded while refraining from unilateral action that would undermine the fiscal targets, economic recovery and financial stability.

(c) To allow the European Central Bank to re-introduce the waiver in accordance with its procedures and regulations.

(d) To extend the availability of the EFSF bonds held by the HFSF for the duration of the Agreement.

(e) To commence work between the technical teams on a possible new Contract for Recovery and Growth that the Greek authorities envisage between Greece, Europe and the International Monetary Fund which could follow the current Agreement.

(f) To agree on supervision under the EU and ECB framework and, in the same spirit, with the International Monetary Fund for the duration of the extended Agreement.

(G) To discuss means of enacting the November 2012 Eurogroup decision regarding possible further debt measures and assistance for implementation after the completion of the extended Agreement and as part of the follow-up Contract.

With the above in mind, the Greek government expresses its determination to cooperate closely with the European Union's institutions and with the International Monetary Fund in order: (a) to attain fiscal and financial stability and (b) to enable the Greek government to introduce the substantive, far-reaching reforms that are needed to restore the living standards of millions of Greek citizens through sustainable economic growth, gainful employment and social cohesion.

Sincerely,

Yanis Varoufakis

Minister of Finance

Hellenic Republic

The above text was sent in a letter from greece to all european financial institutions, including the german finacial ministry. Multiple persons of power, including the german finacial minister Schäuble rejected the plead, on the basis that some formulation are too ambivalent and that this proves that the greek government doesn't really want to proced with the current contracts.
Now...I read the letter and the german translation, which was presented on the web-site of a german leftist party.
And I have, let's say...difficulties understanding the position of Mr. Schäuble on the matter as the greeks repeatedly state that the agree to the current contracts and that they are willing to follow through with them.
In the words of a greek friend of mine:"Who said that we are not gonna pay back at all?"

So I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter?
Is this statment really so ambivalent as the medias present it to be?
Or is Schäuble just pulling the bullshit-lever?

Yours

Mammoth-Tours!

Travel the beauties of the saltsea-bay with our newest breed of Mammoths.
Ordinary Mammoths have a shoulderheight of about 12 feet, but our new luxory Mammoths have a shoulderheight of 18 feet.
Carefully cultured over generations, this new breed has fur as soft as a maidens hair.
If you spend your time lieing in it's hair loking up at the nightsky over the saltsea-bay, you never want to do anything else ever again - Promise!
Plus: Not only do we use greater Mammoths, we also improved on our equipment. Instead of hanging in the harness of the Mammoth you can sit comfortably on multiple platformes, lined with high quality furs, backed by the warm fur of the Mammoth, which is given the same proper care that we applie to al our Mammoths. Sick of stinky Mammoth fur? Not with us! We wash and parfume every single one of our Mammoths multiple times a week.
The Mammoth-Tours Mammoths have a wider stride than the ordinary Mammoths, so we can make the route from Mammothhome to Saltharbor in less than a week. Give it a try, you wont regret it!

You can find us in the Mammothharbors over every major settlement at the saltsea-bay.
Pay us a visit - Mammoth-Tours!
Hat es etwas zu sagen, dass die nominierte US-Justizministerin "Lynch" mit Nachnamen heißt?
Is it the duty of a Bank to decide which country may lend money and which country may not? Is it the job of Bankers to decide what kind of policy is allowed and what kind of policy is not allowed? Does Draghi have the right to put the greek government under pressure?

If so, what is the next step?
