Scar TissueI don’t know what I hated more: myself, or the fact that my crying woke him up. It couldn’t be later than two in the morning, I had woken up from another nightmare and I found myself huddled in the same spot I always went to in times like these: the bathtub.Scar Tissue19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a bad habit I got myself into since childhood, but the coldness of the tub gave me a comfort most things couldn’t. I had been good about keeping my pain hidden from the rest of the world, but by night it came crawling back to me in the form of dreams and flashes of guilt.
The tears would come before I could stop them and I always found myself in this tub. He never knew, and I never told him. What was the point? I’m a girl stuck in reverse who can’t seem to let go of yesterday and take in the joys of tomorrow. My whole life was like a damaged tape, repeating itself when it shouldn’t and having a hard time moving forward. I always could repress my sobs, and I wondered if I was louder than I

"Where else does it hurt?"
Nishinoya proceeded to point at the area where he had gotten a bruise. You clicked your tongue, but you didn't say anything. Instead, you took out the ointment and carefully applied it gently, your fingers delicately moving across his bruise. It hurt. It hurt a little bit, and Nishinoya had to bite his lip so he wouldn't make any noise. But at the same time, it was comforting. Your touch—you were so cautious not to hurt him, treating him like a delicate glass that could break any moment. After you had finished applying the ointment, you then took an elastic bandage and wrapped it around the bruised area to reduce the pain.
It was still painful, but he decided not to mention it. You did so much for him already.
"That all?" You said, raising a brow at him. Something about Nishinoya was odd today. He was quiet. He was usually loud and filled with life, and as much as you hated the obnoxious out-bursts, you weren't going to deny the fact that

You liked all of the members of your squad, especially Levi. In fact, you were infatuated with him. Everything about him from his hairstyle to the way he walked drew you in and made you want him even more everytime you were to lay eyes on him.
There was one person on your squad, however, that you could not stand.
Why did you hate her? Well, because of her relationship with Levi, of course. Although it wasn't concrete, you could tell she was interested, judging by how she acted when he was around, versus when he wasn't.
Presently in time, you were riding through the forest on an expedition. A new member had been added to your squad about a moth ago. A lad by the name of Eren Jaeger. He was currently contemplating on whether or not he would battle the clearly furious titan following behind the squad at the moment. Eventually, he decided to 'trust' the squad

"Please, I don't know anything!" the tiny creature exclaimed, as James brought her little figure towards his face.
James snorted, and shook his head in disbelief. "You're as sly as an octopus- But that kind of bull shit doesn't work on me,"
The girl's dark eyebrows furrowed, and a flash of what seemed like anger darkened her features.
"Will you at least give me a chance to explain myself? Do you think I WANT to be here?" her little voice rang in James's ears, causing the pirate to feel a slight twitch in his eye.
He blinked in surprise, gazing down at his prize with weary eyes. He frowned, and began to lower the girl onto a side table. She stumbled out of his hands, landing in a pile of crumpled parchment and puddles of ink.
"Ooof!" the creature moaned in disgust as the black liquid soaked her red clothing, her tan feet and hands were now jet black.

Julia's Jelly Belly Part 6.Still trying to remain calm from the incident with her jeans, Julia sat behind the restaurant table while the waiter walked over to give them the bill. “Have you ladies enjoyed everything so far?” The blonde boy asked, with a smile at both of them. “YES, Your pasta salads are the BOMB” Said Megan with a lean towards the waiter that almost certainly gave him a better view of her ample cleavage, allowing a few crumbs to fall from her hand into it as she wiped her mouth, as Julia smiled and rolled her eyes. “In that case I’ll give you your… check, ah here it is” Said the boy, with every ounce of his willpower devoted to not stealing a glance at the smiling blonde’s exposed rack. “That’d be great, thank you!” Julia said while shaking her head and laughing to herself, sparing the poor boy the awkwardness by giving him something else to turn his attention to.

She scolded. Though her son stood taller than she, no one messed with the queen unless they wished for a verbal lashing.
"Actually four, if you count the barber's shop window."
Gabriel assumed a semi-reverent posture at the foot of the staircase. Sometimes, he could get his mother to crack a smile when she was supposedly mad at him. But today didn't seem like one of those days. He eyed the empty throne to his mother's left with relief. His dad rarely raised his voice as much as Pen, but even still...

Nathan watched as a flicker of guilt crossed Ethan’s face. All around them the lair was quite. Everyone was asleep, everyone but them. They couldn't sleep; they were too nervous. Tomorrow was the day, tomorrow was the day Donatello and his mate leatherhead would perform the surgery that would separate them forever. After several more moments of silence Nathan watched as his brother swallowed nervously before nodding slowly. "Y.....yes."
Nathan watched as Ethan's body language changed. His shoulders slumping forward, his eyes dropping to loot at the floor, as he hung his head sadly. "I'm.......I'm sorry.....I just.........I........"
Slowly Nathan looked up at him, small tears forming in the corners of his eyes. "He’s just........he's so nice to us. He always is so kind of us......and he.......he's attractive and.......I’m sorry."

“Legends. Stories scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the exploits of heroes and villains. One of them being the born of the very place they call home,” a male voice narrated.
On a map that showed the world, six lights glowed brightly. The lights then disappeared as four kingdoms appeared in their places.
“The Kingdom of Wishful Hope, the Kingdom of Justice Symphony, the Kingdom of Shining Grace, and the Kingdom of Red Flames. These four kingdoms helped man lit their way through the darkness, and form them came strength, civilization, and most importantly, life. They protected their citizens of the creatures without a soul or a heart…the creatures of Grimm and continue to do so this very day,” narrated the male voice.

High up in the Golden Palace of the Kingdom of Tambelon, where the golden bricks that form the very structure usually shine upon the first light of the rising sun, a certain little filly princess sleeps within her little pink bed. With warm blankets and a soft, feather pillow to add comfort to the body and head of the little princess named Starlight, not a peep is heard throughout the palace...and all seems to be at peace for the next hour before the sun rises.
However, while breathing steadily in her sleep, the eyelids shoot open...revealing a pair of sleepy, blue eyes. The cause of this is none other than the sounds that can be heard a few rooms down from this very bedroom: The irritating noise of a baby pony crying.
"Ugh...not again...." Starlight moans while her need to return to sleep before school is in desperation.
The cries only grow louder, leading the sleepy princess to cover her head with her pillow...hoping to blo

“It’s always the quiet ones.” That’s what I hear from everyone. The teachers, the students, and even the parents believe that. I sigh as I write this, just at the mention of that small stereotype given to people like Brandon, like Edgar….like me.
It’s just a small phrase. It didn’t have a great depth of meaning. It was just something people always said about us, because we were different, mysterious even. And frankly, I would agree with the last bit. But with what they think now, after what Edgar did to Alice and what Brandon supposedly did to Karen, they all look at me differently. They all think I’m like them. A killer, a murderer, a quiet one. They don’t say a word to me, no one does but the teachers, but only then it’s when they’re calling for attendance or asking me to answer a question in front of the class. But now even that last b

He purred with amusement, "my own fault of course, but Hollowgaze should probably just check it over before I try to put any weight on it."
Just in case it was serious, and because it was cold outside, Pitchpaw ran back to Camp and into the Medicine Cat's Den where she almost collided with Hollowgaze.
"Snaketail..." she panted, "hurt paw... sent me to get you..."
Hollowgaze didn't seem to fazed, smiling at her as he went back into the Den to collect a few herbs to take with him.
"I'm sure he's fine, thanks for coming to get me."
With Hollowgaze gone, she collapsed to the ground to calm her breathing down.
A couple of moments later a wet mossball was dropped in front of her.

He kissed me. Our lips fit together like puzzle pieces and remained connected and immobile for a brief moment. Now I understand the meaning of locking lips in a kiss. Then he pulled away and I stayed right there, with my eyes closed and the feel of his warmth still on my lips. After several moments I opened my eyes. The world swam. He was looking at me with an aloof sort of a smirk, while I was having trouble keeping my balance. I wonder how I looked from the side. Confused? Out of it?
"You happy now?" Sarcastic.
I tried to think of what to say. Gotta make him laugh. Gotta come up with something witty. Or maybe pout and demand a real kiss? While one part of my mind was occupied with these thoughts, another part honestly reflected on the question: Am I happy? YES. The realization washed over me like a warm wave: I'm happy. He kissed me. Right here, right now, I'm happy.

It was the evening of his 60th birthday. Old Sydney Rehnquist was alone on the veranda of his house in Surrey and nobody came to wish him a happy birthday. It was not Sydney's manner nor his appearance that warded people off. Sydney had been as polite and outgoing as his age permitted, although he admitted that this age level prefers peaceful solitude. He had neither informed anyone nor refused visitors, as he had expected that someone would call on him that day. Nobody came. Then I came but he admitted me.
"Hallo, Sydney, old mate. Why so alone?"
"Dunno, Ralph. But anyways, I'm enjoying the tranquility. I'm imbibing a local ale. What'll you have?"
"Have you got an extra bottle in there?"
"I sure have. Take a chair. I'll bring it out."
I said that Sydney's manner wouldn't scare people away. His appearance was thin, we'd say he was gaunt, and rather pale. As he spoke, I suddenly noticed a change in his teeth. The front teeth and his molars bore fang like tips. But I

But there was something, Ichigo couldn't be sure if it was Orihime's conviction or tone of voice or facial expression, in what she said that stirred up a vague feeling or memory. He vaguely felt as if Orihime's words had shed light on something that he had buried deep within himself…and he didn't like that feeling at all.Double Trouble: Part 44 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Rising to his feet, Ichigo looked down at Orihime as he asked, "Where is your restroom?"
