Trigger MeBreathing. Intense, sharp, painful breathing. The air burned my lungs and throat as the air escaped. Then it returned over and over again. It was an involentary movement the body was use to, but it was the quickness that it came that threw everything off. In front of me a dark figure stood exuding dark clouds from the pores of its skin. I felt nothing but terrifyingly confusing emotions. I noticed the smile plastered on its face. It was clear at first but the longer I stared everything began to blur. Then there was nothing.Trigger Me4 days ago in Short Stories
"Mitch!" a light shaking woke me.
"Mitch are you alright?" My friend stood above me along with a crowd of unrecognizable people. I looked around for a moment realizing where I was then I looked back at the worried gaze of my friend.
"Henry? What happened?" He helped sit me up.
"You had a-a weird athsma attack or something and just completley passed out..."
I rubbed my head. I remebered the bell ringing and we started going to fourth period. I wanted to stop by

Oikawa always ends up staring at your eyes. No matter how many times he tries to look away or tries to ignore your glimmering and shining [e/c] eyes, he always ends up looking at them in the end. It’s cheesy, he had to admit that – it’s very cheesy; somewhat like those old romantic cliche movies that you’d see every once in a while, but he loves your eyes and he loves staring at them; and a huge smile breaks in to his face when he stares at you. You would always respond to him by giving him a furrowed eyebrow, mouthing a quiet ‘What?’ as if you were questioning his actions, but he would merely let out a soft laugh before pulling you closer to himself and wrapping his strong arms around your waist, quietly murmuring mellow words of ‘I love you’ and ‘You mean so much to me.’
“I love you,” he would say, “I love each and every piece of you.”
He has always been so affectionate; he

Okay, I think it's gone. If you do see something there that looks like me getting deflated and turned into a dollish girl, I'd appreciate it if you would just pretend it's not there.
Phase 5 was next, right? As before, there was a little announcement sign. "Phase 5: Primary Retroviral Transmogrification". Like the first phase, this one was accompanied by a little digital readout. Instead of showing weight, though, this one gave a percentage indicator, starting at 0%. Used to seeing stuff coming from the top of the tube, I was a little surprised to see a single spray nozzle emerge from the lower right side of my view. Almost snakelike, it coiled the space around my body, always at least a few inches away from touching me until it had gotten up to the top of my head. With a pressurized hiss, a smoky gas emerged from the nozzle as it began to retract itself along the same path it had taken. This was a much quicker progr

"Stop it!" I screamed.
"Oh yeah, why should we?!" The girls yelled, kicking dirt into my face.
"Stop it or--or else Zero will come and get you!" I would yell, my eyes watering.
They just laughed, continuing to mock me. But then the air went silent. Nothing made a sound for several seconds, but I still refused to look up. I laid still on the dirt, covering my face until I heard the three girls yell and run away. Finally I heard a voice, a soft but sly voice.
"Hey, it's alright. You can get up now."
I rubbed my sleeve across my face, trying to wipe away the snot and tears. Looking up I saw what looked like a young woman, but so

Car rental office manager: Verk Bussier.
G-Dir Employee ID: 82-52-94.
I still recall that day, the day when everything changed.
The day began with a call that beeped in my head.
I right clicked the answer button with my eye.
The Human Resources Director appeared in front of me. Grumpy cat stared at me from his tie. It was not good news, I figured. The Director wouldn't wear a grumpy cat tie otherwise.
"Verk, you are my old friend from college, so I'm gonna be straight up with you:
The corporation is downsizing all human workers and replacing everyone in the Service industry with Dex units and AI System apps. I suggest you start looking for a new job, right now."
"I love my job, sir. I am willing to do anything to keep it!"

"I'll be more efficient!" I pleaded.

"Okay, Ike, choose somebody for me."
The bluenette grinned and grabbed my arm tightly.
"Okay (Y/N)! I choose…"His gaze shifted to a blonde behind us.
"…Samus. Come over here", he pointed to the toilet.
I blushed and so did Samus, but I closed my eyes tightly to look annoyed.
Then, I just felt how Ike dragged me to the door and threw me inside, and another body landed next to me.
I opened my eyes, but I still couldn't see anything because it was completely dark around us.
"Samus are ya okay?", I asked and held out my hand into the dark room.
"Uh yeah (Y/N) i just stumbled and fell down." She slightly took my hand and I pulled her back on her feet.

THE ISLE OF MONSTERSTHE ISLE OF MONSTERS. STORY FIVE:THE ISLE OF MONSTERS2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
The demonic beast looked down upon Godzilla as if the small monster were a mere speck of dust in comparison to his power. His pitch black eyes blasted into the soul of Godzilla, whose eyes were enlarged with fear over the sight of the giant foe. Red King lips slowly made a smirk when he fully examined his opponent; an opponent who only came up to his knee…barley.
“THIS is the foe who dares wake me, the Red King?” Red King’s smirk turned into a smile as he looked upon Godzilla once again “You HAVE GOT to be kidding me? This little lizard wake the all-powerful RED KING?! HA!” with one flick, Red King’s tail slammed into the side of the gorge with almighty force. Rocks flew from the point of impact, soaring through the sides of the ravine like bullets fired from a gun. Godzilla ducked as the larger stones piled up near him, Red King chuckling all the way through the boulder slide. The little monster screeched thro
Getting In Costume, Cerulean HalloweenHalloween, a holiday that many enjoy for one reason or another. For some, it was a time to get free candy and treats. For others, it was an excuse to have parties and hang out late with friends and family. And then for others, the REAL draw of the season was obvious; costumes.Getting In Costume, Cerulean Halloween1 week ago in Short Stories
Yes, everyone loved dressing up on the holiday. From characters to their favorite series, to regular old witches and ghosts, and of course to their favorite Pokemon, Halloween in the world of Pokemon was a sight to behold no matter where in the world.
And in the region of Kanto, in the midst of Cerulean City, home to the Water-type Gym of the Pokemon League, it was no different.
And it was because of this that Ash Ketchum, Pokemon trainer and master in the making, was currently in the Cerulean City Gym along with the gym’s very own (newly christened) leader, Misty.
But unlike many gym visits before in Ash’s career, this was not for a badge (one that he had in fact already obtained), bu

As she’d expected when Phil was deep in a technical puzzle, Aggie didn’t see much of him unless she visited the lab. The main exception was when she arrived home from her university classes, he would always be there at the door, waiting for her and looking worried.
On Friday, the Phil that met her looked excited instead. The first thing he said after hugging her was, “I did it!”
Aggie danced a victory jig with him, laughing as she did. When they stopped, she asked, “You managed to get diamond-boosted entangles to go further?”
“Oh, yeah, that too,” said Phil dismissively. “Unfortunately, diminishing returns limits it to a little over half a mile.”
Aggie kicked the door closed behind them, then started toward the stairs to the lab, one arm still around Phil. “Then what did you do?”
Phil pulled two lockets out of his pocket. “I made these.”

The obscure form of the night loomed over the entirety of the city, illuminated by little bright torches which dotted the black profile of the sky in a mesmerizingly irregular order. All was silent and asleep in that location; the electric lights were turned off, in order for the brighter and most admired ones to shine freely in the width of the dark wings hovering over the inhabitants’ establishments.
It was three in the morning.
No human being was to be seen, if not for two high schoolers idly laying on the crispy and wet surface of the grass of a park residing in their houses’ whereabouts. Their fingers gently interlocked, their souls dancing

Theory of the DevilI wonder what the Devil thinks of the world? Sipping his alcohol, smoking his cigars and his hoofs kicked up, listening to the commotion on the surface. The screams, the curses, the empty threats, all of them. Unlike God, old Nick can hear everything. The tremors the humans make on the Earth's crust, he can hear it all from below in his domain. The lies they conjure up, the empty promises they make up to give them a sliver of hope, every conceivable concept. Devil admires humans, however. All of them: the good, the bad, the ugly, the heathen, the unwashed, all of them he finds interesting. He especially enjoys it when the humans pray to God, for he knows that God will never answer them. God never created the world, the world simply evolved. God and the Angels were born along with the world, in order to deal with the souls of the dead.Theory of the Devil1 day ago in Historical

My Body has DiedWhen someone speaks about immortality, what is the first thought that comes into your mind? What are the pros? Well, naturally... living forever without fear of death. But, what does that entail?My Body has Died1 week ago in Short Stories
Naturally immortality does not mean immunity to pain. Immortality would not take away your brain's natural response to stimuli of course. But then that begs the question, what can happen to your body if you become immortal? Rephrased: to what extent can your body be damaged before immortality prevents it from being harmed any further? Well, that is not exactly how immortality works.
Immortality means safety from death. But what is death, but the escaping of oneself from their mortal shell? As humans our bodies expire. We were not built to live forever. Even if somehow the aging of our bodies were to cease, there is nothing that can keep them from being hurt in other ways. Suppose someone who is immortal starves themselves. Their body cannot continue on, as it needs food, it needs energy, in or

Wayne Newton once said “Fate is made up of choice, not chance.” I never bought into fate so much. I never really cared. To me I thought Newton was correct…nothing happens by chance. You make the choice and you determine your destiny. If that’s true though, I’d sometimes have to ask myself if I’ve been making the right choices in life. I never really wanted much out of life. I wanted some quiet though maybe…but that was impossible around my house. Mom was a lawyer who was constantly in and out and working with clients. Dad was a professor of biology at the local college so he sometimes had students in and out to talk with him. I was still just a high school student, getting moderate grades in everything, but my real passion was something mom and dad could never fathom.
Dad always wanted me to pursue something science related or medical! He wanted me to influence and benefit others. He wanted me to go on to medical school or something. Mom wanted

The ocean waters were eerily calm. Normally, you’d see all sorts of fish swim around during midday…but today was different. Today was rather slow, much to the annoyance of young water-lover Heather Divine.
“Mmmmmm…” Heather’s bored voice droned out of a noseful of bubbles. Not a single fish out today, she thought to herself. On days like this, Heather normally sat on top of her favorite rock formation and watched as the fishes passed by, but for some reason, the big blue was significantly less crowded today.
Heather pouted, letting a few more bubbles free and puffing her cheeks out a little moreso than usual. It feels like I’ve been down here for hours, she thought. She rolled up her sleeve and checked her watch…two minutes, thirty-nine seconds.
Welp, so much for this, she thought. I still have plenty of time, though…why not get something for Miss Joanna while I’m here? With that, she jumped off the

"Miiiiike. Mike! Wake up, Mike!"
Cole groaned again, and proceeded to yank the covers closer to him, now annoyed at the voice.
The owner of the voice, however, expected this. Luke Fisher chuckled slightly as his younger cousin shifted and groaned, attempting to get out of what the three boys had planned to do since they had first heard about this trip.
See, the Cole-Fisher family wasn't exactly at home right now. Hell, their home wasn't even in the same state at the moment. The entire family had taken a week long trip up to Lake Ouachita in Arkansas for a bit of relaxation next to the lake's crystal blue waters.

Kirby's Return to Dreamland ReviewKirby's Return to Dreamland Review6 days ago in Short Stories
Kirby's Return to Dreamland is a no-holds-barred second Kirby platformer on console since Kirby 64. It's planned to be released for the Gamecube with 3 enemy-turned-helpers for multiplayer instead of King DeDeDe, Meta Knight and Bandana Waddle Dee, but was scrapped for unknown reasons. Many years after since the Wii was released and the Gamecube departed, HAL Laboratory tried it again, but they wanna make a Kirby game more action-y than the last ones. Yes, they've added super abilities, a new way to bring the pain in the Kirby universe. Because of this, it's rated E10+! The game was kinda darker than Kirby 64 and was praised because of the soundtrack, the gameplay and the atmosphere on the levels. If only Nintendo wouldn't throw away the giant King DeDeDe robot boss that was seen on the GameCube trailer...
