She was a girl of about ten years, with long silky blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes lighting a charming girl-next-door face. The big blue orbs particularly lit her troubled face at the moment, for she sat against a thick steel-tube post in a dank, dark basement, her slender arms pulled tightly behind the post and bound at the wrists, her mouth covered with a wide strip of cloth tied over it, accentuating her desperately flashing eyes. The school uniform she wore—the dark-burgundy jacket and white blouse with striped burgundy-and-yellow Oakcrest School necktie, burgundy-and yellow plaid pleated skirt, white knee socks and low-heeled loafers—was mildly disheveled from her struggles against the rope which bound her hands behind her and her feet stretched out before her on the dirt floor of the old basement in

"It seems she has left you, maybe she doesn't want you anymore," Mephiles said in a cunning tone.
"What do you mean, Mephiles?" Sonic said, angrily.
"Don't you see, Sonic, your little girlfriend is wanting to celebrate Christmas behind your back," Mephiles said.
"Master! You're being a snitch!" Silver yelled at Mephiles. But no matter he said or did, Mephiles was still being manipulative. Sonic was so mad and thought of the day he was cursed, which was Christmas Eve. Sonic demanded a good Christmas present but all he got was a storybook and a horrible and terrifying song Mephiles composed. Then an old woman came knocking on the door. Sonic answered the door.
"Please, I need a place to stay," the woman said. "Can I stay here?"
"No way, old lady, get lost!" Sonic yelled. Then he slammed the door shut. Then the rose the woman was holding glowed and the old woman turned into a beaut
A Hymn of Valor: Ep 2 - The Day It All ChangedIt has been over a year now since Valor first began intervening in the affairs of the crooked denizens of the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, yet it seems no one outside the metroplex even knew he existed. This notion didn’t bother him. The way he saw it, this kept him a vigilante and not official law enforcement. The local police don’t mind, in fact most of them love having the kid around occasionally making their jobs easier. This just meant he could spend most of his days playing games with his friends instead of patrolling the city, which is the very last thing he wanted to do the last day of Summer Vacation.A Hymn of Valor: Ep 2 - The Day It All Changed2 weeks ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He was in play clothes: sneakers; black shorts, a red tee shit, and a black mesh jersey on top. When Valor wasn’t flying around he spent his time at the park near his house like a normal boy. He, his brothers, and his two closest friends ran up and down the wooden playground equipment playing tag and pretending it was ship
Hades and Persephone She was perfection in every way. Her hair of golden threads seemingly embraced the earth, and he was sure that her radiance could rival the sun that shone on the terrestrial plane. No star could compare to the innocent glint in her blue eyes, and a rose would wilt with envy after seeing the buds of her lips. The curves of her body were like the waves of the ocean, soft and consistent. She glorified her skin, skin that would make a marble statue look yellowed with unmentionable age, but the simple white robes she wore were unbecoming of a woman who commanded such unparalleled magnificence. He had vowed many times to change this youthful innocence, though many other times he had stopped himself. In the world he occupied, in the never-ending dark, he cherished her more than any other person ever would. She was the singular flare which he could watch dance, for she was untouched by the shadows.Hades and Persephone 3 weeks ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

“See you tomorrow class. Please remember your assignment is due on Monday. Don't be lazy and have a great weekend."
I grabbed my stuff and left the room. I was excited for lunch. I haven't seen Sam all day. We don't have morning classes, and it can be annoying when everyone talks behind your back. A month passed since I stood up for Sam. Since then, no one had laid a hand on him. I was now dropped from my popular standing, and frankly I didn't care. I hated being around them. Cold stares and hushed whispers were all I received from people as I got my lunch from my locker. Everyone said I ruined the schools chances of winning state since Flynn was in a correctional facility. I really don't care. You don't hurt my friend.
I walked into the cafeteria and scanned the area. I saw a familiar gray canine sitting alone at a table. I walked up behind Sam and stopped. Crouching a little

“Get ready!” I shouted. The teams were made. Everyone was prepared. We had either water balloons or garbage can lids. My father had come out of the house to be the ref. He raised his hand. Arms were primed for throwing. Lids were raised to defend. Everyone was silent.
He shot his arm down “Sparare!” His Italian caught everyone off guard as they hesitated. That left me for the first shot. I swung my arm into a perfect arc. The balloon soaring lone through the sky hit someone in chest. Then it started. Defense raised the lids to protect the throwers. Throwers threw the water filled balloons. The team that was the least drenched won. The throwing continued for about four minutes. It ended with the other side huddled around their defense for throwing their balloons quicker. Their speed was their undoing. My side won easily afte

Tears. They never stop coming. Every drawing I make as lively as possible, but It doesn't change anything, With the memories comes more tears. Gracefully falling down.

“Are you all right Rita-senpai?” Azami asked as Rita coughed for the fifth time since getting on the bus for practice. “Yes.” Rita replied with a sniffle, “I think it’s just a cold.” “Are you sure you feel up to practicing today?” Lily asked, “Maybe you should take a day off.” “No.” Rita replied, “I never miss practice.”
A little bit later that day, Lily watched with concern as Rita rehearsed her solo. “Her movements are shaky…” She said so quietly that only Eric, who was standing right next to her, could hear. Indeed, Rita was refusing to acknowledge the fact that she was dizzy, but as she launched into a pirouette, her vision began to sway…
Seeing the normally graceful girl wobble unsteadily, Evan, Eric, and Derek all rushed forward and managed to catch Rita as she fell over, preventing her from hitting the ground. The other students all murmured quietly a
Echoes in this empty roomIt could have been anything that finally pushed you over the edge towards wanting to never come back to the place that it all happened. It could have been at work, or at school. It could have been at home, or even at the park you spend every evening out at. But something happens, and although you stay around, you wish it would stop. And when it doesn't, you still stick around, even as it just gets worse and worse. After a bit, you "settle in" and think that maybe it was just your imagination.Echoes in this empty room3 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
But then you look deeper and realize that it still upsets you, that you still hate it. And then you realize that the problem has only gotten worse. You start to panic. You don't know what to do. So you shut everyone out, and when you realize what you have been doing you confront them about it, saying it was your fault for leaving because you still don't want to admit that anything is wrong. But when you apologize, they say that no shit you were cutting them off, and that it was a dick thing to do.

The ground floor of the Chase Tower in Dallas was the center of attention this afternoon for a group of madmen armed to the teeth with fully automatic weapons and anti-ballistic armor were holding the level hostage until their demands were met. There was no uproar nor panic as everyone did exactly as they were told without hesitation. The crowd was oddly complacent during such an event. No one even broke into sweat as a couple of the men rushed up to several floors just to swipe a case of compact disks.
“Okay, got those docs. It was pretty easy really.”
“Yeah about that. Where are the cops or swat? Not that I’m really complaining, but you’d think there’d be something.”

The next day I woke up from a good night sleep, I decided to go jogging but I had to plan out where I’m going, I changed into my jogging clothes, tied my hair into a ponytail with stray bangs, saw the keys to the flats, took them (place them in my zipper pocket), went downstairs to put on my running shoes (tied the laces and running socks), got out the door, locked it with the key (placed it in my zipper pocket, zipped it up) and started my jogging, I started to figure out where the routes are and kept jogging. After 45 minutes of jogging I got back to the apartment, took a shower, wore my black-grey shirt over a multi-purple striped jacket, dark blue jeans and grey shoes, straightened my hair and went downstairs to get something to eat.
When I got downstairs a woman with short blonde hair, dark eyes wearing a nice purple casual dress and nice high heeled causal shoes was picking up some trash until she noticed me and was startled.
Some People Never Change I walked around in circles between the shelves of the library, my book bag now carrying an urban fantasy, a book I’d liked as a kid and wanted to re-read, and a book written by an author that I referred to in my head as an “English class author” – one who lived over one hundred years ago whose books most high school students won’t read unless they’re forced to. I never left a library feeling like I’d checked out everything I wanted, and Kate wouldn’t be picking me up for another half an hour or so, whenever her class ended, so I had time to kill.Some People Never Change4 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

Wednesday NightThe ceiling was smooth and black, and Silver sort of wished it was dirty and bumpy like Ethan’s so it would at least be interesting to look at. After all, he spent an unreasonable amount of time staring at it. The majority of his time at “home” was spent lying on his bed, and glaring at his boring ceiling until dinner, and then again until he fell asleep. Everything was so structured, every piece of furniture matched and there were no patterns in the plain white carpet. Breakfast was 6:30 and dinner at the same time at night. It was horribly monotonous.Wednesday Night5 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Silver bolted straight up in his bed. No one came to their house. Could it be the police? He rolled off the black comforter and flung open the heavy black curtains he usually kept drawn in front of the gargantuan window that over looked their driveway. It took a moment to adjust to the sunlight, but when he did what he saw filled him with horror; Lyra’s car was parked in the drivew

He’d expected the entire project to be a vexation since he was stuck with the loud boy, but the more time he spent with him the more he discovered they had in common. They were both very eager to begin pokemon training and despite Ethan’s lack of common sense in Silver’s opinion, he was brilliant when it came to pokemon statistics and information, which was going to make the written portion of the assignment simple.

A Little Thought on the Education SystemI've always had a problem with the overall method of education that goes about in our paradigm. My main focus was the fact that teachers and professors grade students; why is that?A Little Thought on the Education System7 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
To gauge a student's performance, surely.
But why is it single-sided?
How so is it that educators are made into authority figures that, in most cases, abuse their power?
It's simple, these traditions are nothing but rules dictated by our flawed past.
This must change if we are to witness any global improvement in overall performance of students within all fields.
I personally believe that this problem can be easily remedied through a more "three-dimensional" grading system. One in which educators are allowed to grade students on their performance as usual, but also a system in which students are allowed to grade teachers, to gauge their performance.
This system would function, simply put, as such:
Students are allowed to grade their educators, and if they fall below a certain level, they would have to
