Sisters HalloweenEcho sat at her desk in class sighing as she tired to wake up and pay attention. She yawned softly rubbing her eyes. Suddenly a loud thud hit her desk causing her to jump with a small squeek. The class laughed softly as the teacher looked at her. "Miss Masin. Please pay attention." He said as he headed back to the front. "Yes sir." She said softly and shook her head. She had to listen to her one year old sister complain all night about wanting to decorate for halloween since someone in her daycare had passed out pumpkin coloring pages. She just didn't have the time for it.Sisters Halloween9 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
As the bell rang for class one of Echos classmates came up behind her and covered her eyes. "Boo! Guess who! Its me Emily! Happy Halloween!" She grinned happily.
Echo rolled her eyes pulling the hands from her face. "I don't have time for this. I have to get to work soon." she said running her hand through her white blond hair.
Emily frowned. "Echo. Your sister is one. Its her first halloween. Why don't you spend it

A blast of wind hit me in the back, picking my body up like it weighed nothing before smashing me against a tree. I cried out and hit the ground on hands and knees, ribs protesting against the abuse.
“Too slow, Tomoe!” Uncle Kenshiki’s voice drifted through the clearing.
I growled in frustration. You try being fast when your chakra is running this low, I thought angrily. I picked my mask up with a faintly trembling hand. This training was going to be the death of me.
“Get up!” Uncle called out.
I shook my head to clear it, then forced my legs to cooperate. I rose slowly, head practically spinning.
“Uncle..” I began. “I think..”
“What?” Uncle asked. “Is it time?”
I gave a curt nod. With my chakra at its current level, it would certainly work. The thought scared me-
Death Loves Family I've always hated deer. One specific deer to be exact. The reason why is because once that deer would show up, a loved one would pass on.Death Loves Family14 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
When I was little, my mom and I would always go for a walk in the woods. She would always bring along our old dog, Scooter. She would always take him along so he can get his daily walk. We would see these rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and occasionally a wolf or two. If we got lucky, a bear. Out of nowhere Scooter started barking and whimpering and trying to get away, but from what? I looked up in the direction he was looking at and saw it. A pure white deer with big, eerie, black eyes. I caught it staring in the direction of where our house was.
"Mommy, look!" I shouted with awe.
She turned around to see and stopped everything she was doing. She gabbed Scooters collar and gabbed me by the hand.
"We need to go home, now!" she demanded.
She ran out of the woods, me and Scooter in her hands. I turned my head back towa

Hearing the commotion behind her, she turned around to see what happened. Her eyes spotted a police hat and her ears perked up due to the all too familiar voice she heard.
“Stop right there!”
“Wha-(Y/N), where are you going?!”
Upon hearing the voice she knew too well, (Y/N) weaved her way amidst the crowd who were running the opposite way; her friend’s exclaim fell into deaf ears. She wanted to have a clear vision of both party involved.
On a safe distance, she could see the struggle between an outlaw and him—him, being the eldest Matsuoka. Rin had his left arm wrapped strongly around the criminal’s neck while his right tried to pry the gun out of his hand.
Love In ConstellationsCeleste woke to the sound of the bedroom door creaking open. There was a faint white light creeping in through the windows making the room dark one moment and then awake the next. The door continued to creak as if the person behind it didn’t think the old hinges could be heard if they were opened incredibly slowly. Celeste turned to her other side and faced her husband, but she dare not open her eyes to see if he was also awake, and give it away that she was up. At her movement the door stopped squeaking. It stood half a foot open for a long moment before it steading began squeaking again. Celeste smiled and buried her face in her pillow. As soon as she did she felt her Husband move closer and wrap his arm around her under the covers.Love In Constellations2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Do you think they know we are awake yet?” He asked his voice husky from sleep pulling her closer to him. Celeste cracked an eye open still smiling and gently shook her head no.
Timothy's TimeOnce upon a time there was a little boy, with hair as gold as a summer sun and eyes as blue as the sea. His overalls were covered in brown and green stains and a toy sword was strapped around his waist. He was a curious thing and his curiosity often led him into trouble. And like all little boys, he’d bat his lashes, give a grin, and sweetly say those two words that had saved him from timeout on more than one occasion.Timothy's Time2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Sorry mommy,” Timothy would shift beneath his mother’s gaze.
“Oh, Timmy,” his mother would shake her head as she wiped at his mud caked face with a wet cloth, or swept up the pieces of broken glass, or neatly restacked the papers the boy had disturbed on his father’s desk. She had learned early on in her son’s life not to leave him alone for too long, yet there were times when she had to. She’d be doing laundry and would leave him in front of the television, only to hear a loud crash moments later. She’d be str

The wolf watched the old lady in her garden. Desiring her to come closer that he may sink his teeth into her throat.
She was the witch that had hunted his pack until he alone remained. Now he had hunted her and had found her lair. A cottage in a hollow deep in the dark forest. But how to get close enough to take her without her using her magic against him.
He looked around.
He saw a figure in red coming up the path. He was curious why would anyone come close to the witch.
Staying carefully out of sight he loped through the forest and found a girl walking carefully on the path carrying a basket and a long thin stick she was sweeping the ground in front of her with. He stopped near a large tree and dropped his haunches to the leave covered ground, snapping a twig in the process.
“G-grandma, I-is that you?”
He snarled at himself berating at himself.
The girl’s hooded head swiveled around to where he was.

The plants rose, snow and ice were left behind – your home was getting closer and closer. Next to you, your two teammates and your sensei accompanied you down the rocky road back to the village. Excited chattering was heard from all three of you. Your first big mission completed; your first big step on becoming a true ninja. But yet…with every step you were closing in on your home village, you became quieter. Torogakure’s walls rose on the horizon, and by the time your team arrived at the gate, you had readjusted your hair four times. Leaving the chatter for your teammates, you just tossed in some snarky remarks every now and then whenever you were addressed. Maybe they wondered about the change, maybe not.

Certains auraient pris ça pour un gage ou un bizutage étrange, mais pour ma part j'avais décidé d'assumer pleinement ma décision, le but du jeu étant de savoir si oui ou non pour un tireur d'élite, porter une couche est plus avantageux que de faire dans son pantalon. Après tout, si Samantha m'affirme qu'au final ce n'est pas spécialement désagréable, je peux quand même accorder un certain crédit à son avis. Ce n'est pas une idiote, loin de là.

His Fantasy Everything about her was beautiful, whether it was her heart or her mind or physicality. And she didn't even know. She didn't know that her eyes shined a little brighter when she smiled. Or that the dimple in her left cheek showed when she laughed. Or that when she grew silent a sad look often shadowed that beautiful face. And I didn't tell her. Not a thing. About how my heart beat. A little quicker when she acknowledged me. Even in the slightest way. And that I knew exactly. That she cared. Just a little too much. And it hurt her. To feel helpless. If I would've said one thing. I would've stopped and tooK her face gently in my hands. She would've peered up at me, her lips drawn tightly. Forced to smile. And I'd look beyond the suffering that she held in those soft, wide eyes of hers. And against her lips. I'll tell her. In most sincerity. In most honesty. In most secrecy. I'll tell her in a whisper.

Hope for a Young GirlUnlike Mama’s Plant, my symbol of hope wasn’t living; it doesn’t grow in the ground to become something big. It was written, recorded, and the given to the world as a present.

When I was six years old, my parents got divorced. My dad cheated on my mom and my mom cheated on my dad, and the plain out fact was that they just didn’t get along very well.

The QueenWe see her emerging from a fleshy cavern, a womb, and into frenzied chaos, a murky bath, an anxious birth. The young mother is crying, both out of joy and of pain, but primarily of overwhelming relief. Black hair sizzles to a boil in the hot water. A midwife asks for the father’s name, and choking on her own tongue, the mother eeks out the name. A womb is an ocean, a song, a soft hum. The baby is both today and tomorrow, and if she ever doubts herself, just tell her to remember this.The Queen1 week ago in Short Stories More Like This

ChelseaShe wanted to be the color red. Because red was the color her cheeks would turn when he brushed his thumb across her wrist. It was the color of the curve of her lips when she brought them to meet his. It’s the passion in her heart that beats with her growing affection. The color of her dress when it fell to the floor, unzipped. The heat from his skin when his hands touched her body. When his lips memorized the red of her desire. The intensity of their movements engulfed in lust. The piece of her she shared with him, and the one she let him keep. It was the color that she saw when she found him with someone else. Every touch, every kiss, every moment. Hazed with red. It’s when you smash your fist into the mirror you stand before. You let out what runs inside because you want it to drown what you see on the outside. It’s the provocative screams she threw at him. The color of her skin heated with rage.

A Girl I KnowEight years ago, there was a girl He saw, with the skinned knees and large round eyes. And He saw the rejection she felt in her tiny face. He saw the eyes that turned glassy with tears even though they never spilled. The hold in her small clenched jaw and the quiver of her chin. And He wondered why she stumbled but never fell over. The unbearable distance of a sign of praise she couldn’t make it. He saw her grow a little taller. Shoulders stiff and her walk slouched. He saw the fire that burned bright and heavy. That sparked the red and burned the dark. He saw a sad child living in the shadow of her own twisted psyche. He saw a skeleton of the past broken down. He saw a face pale as his own but missing the light. He saw a pair of eyes, dark and flat consumed of nothing. He saw the tears that were finally shed over a casket woven into the dirt. He saw a light inside that He couldn’t fix. He watched her till death, alone with a bitter end. And she saw Him as well, her eA Girl I Know1 week ago in Short Stories More Like This
