SecretsAimi smiled softly at her newborn son cradled in her arms, she had been through fourteen hours of labor and did not mind it one bit, as the miracle she was holding in her arms was perfect in every way. She could not wait to share the good news with her family and most of all she felt at peace and ease for the first time since her marriage into the Oshiro family. Her little Akihiko had made his appearance at approximately twelve noon and had proved that his lungs were powerful.Secrets4 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Aimi, let me see him,” Hoshiko Oshiro walked over to his wife quickly and smiled gently down at the infant she was cradling. “My wonderful first born son’s finally here.”
“Yes and he’s adorable,” Aimi hoped that Hoshiko wouldn’t notice that their son didn’t look a thing like him. But she knew that as perceptive as the elder man was, there would probably be questions once she recovered from labor and delivery.
“Aimi, he looks just like you,”

Jeff avait très envie d'aller aux toilettes.
Inutile de faire semblant de croire que ça allait passer. Sa vessie le torturait, et Mlle Bird s'était rendu compte qu'il se tortillait sur sa chaise.
Mademoiselle Bird n'avait rien en commun avec les autres instituteurs. Par exemple Madame Kinley qu'il avait eu en CE2, était jeune, blonde et très pédagogue. Mr Trask, en CM1, était bâti comme un colosse grec et avait un voix tonitruante, mais en dehors de ça il était toujours de bonne humeur. Et puis, il y avait Mlle Bird, l'instit de CM2.
Jeff détestait cette vieille mégère et c'était r

Cutie Apple Pie((Warning, this piece will have plenty of time jumps.))Cutie Apple Pie5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was late for a pony to be up, pacing her room, worrying a rut into the floor with her hooves. The fact of the matter was Applejack was stressed. She'd had a test done and just that day received a letter with the results. Now she was pacing, and thinking, lost in her mind as she tried desperately to find a solution. What was she supposed to do or say? She couldn't keep this a secret.
Down the hall, a little filly shifted out of sleep thanks to the echoing sounds of her sister's worry as Applejack muttered to herself and fiddled with things around the room. Tiredly, little Applebloom made her way to her big sister's room, about to enquire as to what was wrong when the stressful mare hurled the fateful letter in anger. It landed before Applebloom, who uncrumpled it and read it, mouth hanging open. "Applejack...are you having a baby?!"
The night was dark and cold, just a few short months ago. It felt like mere days ago. Two c
Dreaming of YouKushina was walking by on a sunny afternoon as she usually did. She loved doing this, because ever since her pregnancy she had been finding herself doing less and less when she could do more. She was now at least seven months along in her pregnancy, and she was VERY noticeable. She smiled to herself as she gently ran her hands along her largely swollen stomach. "You like it when we go walking don't you Naruto?" she asked the large bump as she smiled, before sitting down on the grass.Dreaming of You9 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
She had found out shortly after that she would be having a son, and she had had the name picked out for quite some time. She sat up making sure that she felt comfortable, even though it was hard to do that with her body being the way it was right now! she gently placed her hands on her large stomach again and smiled. "You know I'm being very patient in waiting for you" she said with a smile. "I know that you probably want to meet me and daddy alot sooner then you think, but I have to make sure your done BE

I sit at the till, scan the items that are to be bought, take the money, give change, rinse and repeat. My job is working at the local shop in town as the cashier, simple pay and simple job description, just enough to pay the bills.
Its 3:20pm, just after a lot of kids come out of school with their parents (if they aren't young enough to come home by themselves, that is…). Its rush hour at this time, children of 5-16 come in their uniforms, get what they want they or their mothers pay, and they leave.
The reason I'm telling this story is because of the last group to pay and leave, at around 3:30.
They come in, a mother of around 20-30 years old, her daughter of 7, and the little brother, who is 4, I’ve come to find out. The children rush to the sweet aisle, which is just opposite of the till, but they don't cause any trouble as the mother goes to the appliance aisle. I assume she does this because she thinks I can watch them.
The children ar
Skeletons Nick watches with patient amusement, as his girl scoops up a spoonful of her melted ice cream sundae, and slurps it down like soup. She’d once told him that it tasted much better melted than when it was frozen, and that when the ice cream melted it made it easier to get to the chunks of brownie that were tucked into the frozen mound.Skeletons2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
He knocks back a shot of whiskey, and it burns like a small fire in his throat. He looks back at her, smiling, as she continues to patiently sip the melted frozen treat. A few minutes later she pushes back the little dish, and Nick chuckles at the look of happiness on her face.
“Done?” He says with a grin. And his girl nods, patting her full belly. He calls for the check and, once everything is paid for, leaves the restaurant taking the girl by the hand. The two step out under the clear November night, squeezing each other’s hands playfully. The walk home isn't very long, and despite the chill
