Dipper, Can You Hear Me? Ch18"Mabel, do you really think that there's something more to this?"

The brunette was quiet for a moment, collecting her thoughts, chewing her lip as they walked. They made it to the end of the hallway and had turned into a new one before she finally replied, and when she did it wasn't the rant Pacifica had expected
"You saw the look on his face, Paz" she whispered
Pacifica was quiet for a moment. It's true, she had seen the look. She had also seen the look that her friend hadn't seen; the heart-wrenching look of complete agony that had painted his face as soon as he realized what he had done. She nodded her head in agreement with the brunette, heaving a sigh and shrugging
"Bill said he's taking care of it" she finally told her friend "And he won't tell us anything. We just have to have faith that even if possession isn't the full story, Dipper is okay. We have to bel

A woman elegantly dressed in beautiful, blue clothing with a veil elegantly wrapped around her body, slowly approached the throne harboring a satori. Each step, like a graceful fox, breathtaking and ethereal. The woman had reached her destination, in front of the satori.
"My, don't you look cute~"
The woman reached out to the satori's head, hoping for a head pat, but her hand was quickly slapped away.
"Do not touch me."
"Ohoho~ Sensitive, aren't you?"
"What is your purpose here, Wu Qing'e?"
"Seiga Kaku, thank you very much. And my purpose here is simple. Crown Prince sent me here for negotiations."
"The saint? She never told me of any negotiations."
"She told me on a whim."
"...I don't like the way you're thinking."
"Oh, trust me~ It'll only be for a few minutes."
"Ah, but I shall tell you, this has to be kept a secret."
"Then we shall negotiate in my room. The animals never enter there."

Lalita grew to be a faithful friend that I spoke to about everything. Throughout the past couple of years, we had gone from harboring ominous feelings at a terrible beginning to dropping by each other's places for a lengthy chatter on a daily basis. Tonight she visited my house to go off on another one of her ranting sprees.
She didn't rant often, unless she had writer's block, and she's had writer's block for quite a while now. Writer's block was not only a seal that blocked her extreme flow of creativity, but it also burdened her with aggravation and forced her into taking drastic measures in order to gain inspiration.
Translation: She was grieved and super desperate to do anything to write again.
"I can't think!" she wailed for the fourth time, shaking my shoulders, making my head rock back and forth in a frenzied nod. My hair will be ruined at this point, and I had just combed it an hour ago. "Nothing, absolutely nothing has emerged in my brain today, and I'm sick of it

"What does that even mean?"
"It's like a fairytale gone wrong."
"Like the wrong end of a Kaleidoscope"
"Or dandelion seeds, or like freckles at 3:28am"
"I really don't get it..."
"No one really sees them for what they are...."
"I see.... Wait, sorry!!! Sorry!"
A very short silence is quickly followed up by the first logical thing Rin's said.
"Just close your eyes, Ryo."
I take a long sigh out.
"And cross your toes, it works better that way..."

I had made an involuntary, forceful expulsion of the contents of my stomach to my mouth and onto exposed pedicured toes.
Translation: I had puked on someone's shoes.
The shoes were sandals. I didn't know who I puked on, to be precise, but I think it was a woman with pink hair. Maybe. I don't know, I was too intoxicated with wine to recall last night's events. I had wasted the rest of what could have been my sleeping hours hugging a toilet at home. The next morning, I encountered a hangover after dozing off in a bathtub, so I swallowed painkillers and chugged down a gigantic bottle of water in an attempt to get rid of it, not caring if water droplets dribbled down my chin during the haste.
I wiped my mouth and hurled the empty bottle against a wall. I called in sick for work, feigning several coughs and sniffles just to add a convincing act to my lie. After that, I remained stuck at home and suffered through the rest of my tormenting hangover.
The day after that
Hiding From Death Pacing the room nervously, Garett whispered, "I wonder if they'll find us here."Hiding From Death1 hour ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"No way," Jerri scoffed, "this hiding place would save us from the zombie apocalypse." Garett continued to pace, prompting Jerri to add, "Unless you're wanting to attract attention to ourselves by stomping around everywhere."
"Oh, sorry," Garett apologized. Pacing was a nervous habit of his.
Footsteps suddenly became audible outside of the doorway, and a shadow moved into the light that was shining beneath the door.
"Oh, my good heavens, no," Jerri whispered, a tear slipping down his face.
"Not yet," Garret huffed through gritted teeth. "We need to strike first," he said to Jerri, a determined gleam lighting up his eyes.
They nodded at each other in understanding.
"On the count of three," Garett said. "One... two... three!"
"For Narnia!" they screeched, and

A long, long time ago, angels and demons once fought against each other. They used to be opponents that would strike one another at every chance, ferocious rivals that would compete for the coveted title of the best, stiff enemies that would heed nasty stereotypes and rumors circling each other. Nowadays, however, the boundaries that were once laid out by our ancestors have faded, replaced with coexistence among all species. Angels could converse and befriend demons. Demons could converse and befriend angels. The civilians of the Underworld demanded for change, and change was what they received by the Councils of both Heaven and Hell.
But it wasn't easy to achieve such reforms.
There was an opposition to the proposition. This opposition expressed disapproval for equality within both angels and demons; if angels and demons were to live in harmony, they would have to exchange various traditions and beliefs. They would have to share cultures. They would have to acknowledge tha

It took a while, a long while, but we had managed to get through the gateway of Hell and to our destination in time. The doors of the carriage opened for us. Demons cladded in all-black uniforms set out to carrying our luggage. Maddie Carmel, our one and only famous party host, did the honors of greeting us personally. She was attired in a sparkling crimson gown, adorned with a puffy hem and silver ribbons. Her red hair was tied in an elegant updo.
"Duke," Maddie offered me a warm smile, her stout black wings perking up, "it's been quite a while. You look quite charming. How are you?"
"Just splendid, thank you." I pecked her on the cheek, plastering on a broad grin. That was a lie, but I didn't plan on confessing to her about my terrible travel. After all, I had to host an urbane demeanor, not a whiney one. "And how are you?"
"Great, great." She inspected Lalita, nodding with approval. "Fantastic outfit you got there, you'll surely stand out."
Lalita smiled. "Thank you

"Do I look good? I look good, right?" I asked, adjusting my red bowtie. I smoothed back my half-shaved hairstyle, raking through white locks. I had decided to dress for the best, so my crisp cream-yellow tuxedo and leather dress shoes would have to do for the special occasion.
"You look great." Lalita smoothed the ruffles and frills of her white spaghetti-strapped gown. The hem reached to her pearl anklets and ribbon flat shoes, short enough that she wouldn't trip. We had picked the all-white outfit at the last minute, but it was so stunning to admire. White was a perfect theme for her, considering how much of an angel she appeared to be on the outside. "You worry too much about what you wear. You're a guy, you know."
"Correction," I said, a finger raised to shush her, "I'm a male fashion designer, and everyone knows it. I have to look good in order to maintain my reputation as the most fashionable man at the party."
"I'm sure no other man would concern themselves ove

Lalita might be stalking me.
When I took a lunch break from sketching new clothing designs, I saw her working as a waitress in a nearby restaurant. As soon as she glanced over me through a glass panel, I made a run for it.
The day after, when I walked back home from my morning jog, she was assisting my neighbor Jane, Jane of all people, with her garden. I turned away and went back to the park to jog again.
On that same day, in the afternoon, I went out to eat at an ice cream parlor. When I stepped foot inside the place, there she was. Again. She was wiping the tables clean when I entered. I immediately left and shoved away the coveted chocolate sundae that had been haunting my mind.
This was getting ridiculous.
I needed to confront her about this constant stalking. It seemed like she had the same idea, because for the third time on that same exact day, we bumped into each other in the local mall.
The shopping bags I had accumulated throughout my jour
