The blood left Law's face, eyes widening. You saw him? He wants to run but he's frozen, trembling. "Run." Your voice orders him softly. Somehow that single word made his legs obey, running swiftly down the street.
"Oops..." You breathe peering down from the rooftop, following easily as you watch him. "He's traumatized..." You sigh. You follow him to a suburb, pausing as he enters a rather nice looking place.
'Geez... Now I have to get permission...' You think with a sigh, hopping off a rooftop, going over to inspect the house. A pink painted room catches your eye and you smile, hopping onto the window seal and knocking on the window. The small girl jumps in surprise and looks over at you. You offer a friendly smile and wave. She comes over curiously.
"Who're you?" She asks without opening the window.

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

Am I using this thing right? There's nowhere to type or anything, so how--
Oh. I guess it's just reading my thoughts to take a log. It's so weird that I'm able to understand what's on the screen at all, but I suppose any system that's able to directly interpret brainwaves is going to be able to let me read its output. That's not really important, though. What matters is that I'm able to record all of what happened to me in case there's anyone else who finds this. I'm pretty sure that my personal logs are private, so I can recount exactly what happened today without fear of...her...discovering me. When did this start, again?
Right, last night. Yesterday, I was living a pretty normal life. Six feet tall, sorta dirty blond hair, pale-ish skin, not in particularly good shape. I suppose that's part of the reason they got me, though there aren't really any exercise routines that can prepare you for the sort of thing that h

Handling two little babies was quite a task.
As Leonardo flopped down onto the couch, next to Raphael, he gave a small sigh, regarding his exhausted-looking little brother.
After the ceremony for the deceased babies, things had started to gradually improve over the following weeks. Raphael was doing well for the most part, allowing himself to mourn and letting his brothers help a little with Pino and Gianni.
Yet, Leonardo was not quite satisfied with the situation. Raphael was still overdoing it, dark shadows under his vibrant green eyes and his muscles standing out sharper. The surest sign that Raph had lost weight, even after he returned home from his captivity. Everything he did was to orbit around his babies, claiming again and again that he couldn't simply /not/ care this much for them.
To an extent, Leonardo understood. He figured it was similar to how he would stay up all night and grind himself to the bone for his brothers. And yet he knew it was different for Raphael and his c
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 Me1 week ago in Short Stories

Car rental office manager: Verk Bussier.

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!"
"Love is not relevant, profit is. Dex Units are simply put... cheaper and more efficient than humans."
"I'll be more efficient!" I pleaded.

It was painfully obvious that by the sounds of all the chatter coming from the inside of Ciel's manner, he was currently busy taking his time to explain things to his past clients. Every single one of them were wearing well decorated Halloween costumes as they resided inside the confines of the well protected manner walls. Some costumes looked as though each individual had given an arm and a leg to obtain them from places like France, Germany, even Japan while _____ looked as though he had borrowed some commoner clothing.
As _____ leaned against the balcony railing, he looked off into the distance and up towards the darkened sky which seemed to make the moon stand out even more than it already had. _____'s attention was pulled inside when he had heard Elizabeth calling out Ciel's name and practically pulled him in one of her "cute hugs".

I stand alone. In the field of grass high enough to tickle my bark three feet above the ground, I stand and I wait. It doesn't take long – it never does. My knotted branches fascinate them, and they come ever closer. If they're in large groups, I simply wait and do nothing. Too many, too fast, and they'll notice. They'll know what I am, and I have no defense against fire or blade.
So I wait, until it's only one or two that come. And then – then I smile inside as they spread out a blanket beneath my branches and set out their baskets with food and drink. I let them sup, having learned long ago that they're far easier to kill when they're full and lazily drifting to sleep with the warmth of the afternoon sun. That's when I strike.
Few notice that darkness is closing in on them as my branches bl

"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

He didn't get up. "You're late, I didn't think you were coming." Unapologetic. Strike one. He pulled his sleeve up to check his watch, even though he'd just checked his phone and knew exactly what time it was, just to make a point. Arrogant. Strike two.
"I was actually sitting at the bar. You said from my profile picture that I'd be the 'most compelling beauty in any room', I was curious as to whether you'd spot me."
He laughed, reached across the table and placed his hand on hers. "You are, unmistakably, the most beautiful woman I've known."
She withdrew her hand to reach for her water glass, took a sip and smiled. "But you don't know me, do you?"

The sound of wood scraping against linoleum resonated through the house. He clenched his teeth and waited. The familiar noise of his mother's footsteps never came. He released a heavy breath and lifted a single bare foot onto the seat of the chair.
He gripped its back with a large, pudgy hand and pulled himself up. He balanced for a moment and gasped for air. His arms hung wearily at his sides and he looked up. There atop the refrigerator was his favorite cake neatly packaged in a box of Little Debbie's. His tongue wrapped around his lips like a snake slithering from its hole. He took a deep breath and lifted his arms over his head.
"Nathan Phineas Glutton!"
His mother's words dripped from her lips and filled his skull. He felt his eardrums retreat inside him to shrivel into mounds of flesh and die. Nathan turned to face her and offset his perfectly balanced body. He toppled over the back of the chair and laid sprawled across the

The doctor snuggled into his coat, his bad mood was evident. After the long day he had had, the last thing he needed was a weather comparable to a snowstorm. The only thing that helped him to see anything were the lamps that stood about two meters away from each other, and the passing cars from people who still dared to drive with this kind of weather.
But that wasn't the only thing. He would, from time to time, spare a glance at the warm light that came from a home. The thought made him smile. He knew that he would end reaching the place he himself could call home.

They clinked their drinks together, before all six took a big chug at the same time. It was karaoke night and the moderately shitty music played in the background along with the happy chatter of the people inside.
Each member of the team had a different drink. Thalia always had a scotch, Jack stuck with Guinness, Logan got a Shirley Temple, Kevin got a tequila, Venom got vodka, and Wolf ordered merely a classic old beer.
A few rounds into the night, Wolf turned to Jack after they had finished laughing about throwing peanuts at each other around the table and dubbing the monumental event: The Great Peanut War.

Festivities of the night of Halloween were going stronger, while some were engaging in treats others were involved in tricks. It was no surprise that under the pretense of the holiday fun there were those who were taking advantage of it for misdeeds.
Under the cover of night, identity obscured with disguises they traveled down the neighborhood stirring up trouble. Some of them took advantage of the week to steal candies and harass other trick or treaters. But for others they found more fun in vandalism.
Specifically they were doing the act of toilet papering, where they drape numerous rolls of toilet papers all over a property. It was a bit time consuming tossing and spreading

“I’ll do it tomorrow mum. I promise.”
I look around my son’s room with visible exasperation. His bedroom floor is completely strewn with bits of lego, books, clothing and video game controllers. The dark blue carpet is barely visible beneath all the mess.

Jack sighs. “Finnnnne.”

Pound for Pound [xWG, Slob]Chel had to wonder why the gods were so vehemently against her as she was dragged into the city. She could feel the leering eyes on her back as the guards forced her to pay for her most recent theft, knowing that the new chief of the city would not be pleased to hear this. Chel knew little of this new leader of their group as they had a change in power, and with it, some radical improvements. The only cost was a restricted lifestyle as this new head of the people was firm with enforcing his rules and judgment. As Chel stumbled up the steps, she knew full well that the older chief could not save her nor would anyone be willing to step to her defense to aid her; not with her track record of crimes and mischief in the city.Pound for Pound [xWG, Slob]2 days ago in Short Stories

The Fattest Kid At SchoolThe idea first struck Brandon early in the school year. It was on a day that he had forgotten that he had packed a lunch and brought lunch money with him as well. He decided to treat himself and, after finishing the large lunch he had brought, bought a lunch from the school cafeteria. It was after all pizza day and who wanted to pass up an opportunity like that? So he had purchased himself another lunch and eaten both slices of pizza even though he wasn’t really hungry anymore.The Fattest Kid At School1 month ago in Short Stories

Part 12 – That Esgirlated Darkly
In a conversation I had once with a close friend, we compared interesting lessons from high school.
Mine occurred sophomore year with a teacher who shall remain nameless. Mrs. Nameless positioned a series of baskets at the front of the room, gave everyone a paper ball, and told us to throw them at the baskets. Those that got in received a candy reward if they were at the front. If not, they were allowed to move closer to the basket for another throw. I didn't make any of my shots.
Before long, a lot of the people in the back complained this was dumb. That provided the launching point for Nameless's lecture. Apparently, those in front represented groups and people with more opportunities and wealth than those at the back. So those at the back had to work harder and those at the front had to think about those behind them and help them out. She continued on about class structures and Colonialism.
I didn't really g
