Something Fishy Going OnSpring was nearing its end and Summer was around the corner. However, vacation already began for my brother and I. We finished our classes and were already planning to start our volunteer work. It was also the time to finally get my driver's license over the summer holiday. Though I'm a little nervous, the important thing is that I do my best. In the mean time, I can still kick back, relax, and have my friends come to my door.Something Fishy Going On23 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
One Tuesday morning, I got up earlier than usual. My parents already left for work and my brother was playing his video games.
Me: *groggily* "Well, at least I'm getting up without the help of an alarm clock and a need to go away from home." *chuckles*
After eating my breakfast and doing my morning exercises, I went upstairs to take my shower. Suddenly, I hear the doorbell ringing and my dogs barking.
Me: "Hmm, who could that be at this hour?" *heads down stairs*
When I opened the door, no one was there. However,
Das Mysterium der Unterschicht»Wir sind heute in einem Institut das sich mit unserer Gesellschaftsstruktur auseinandersetzt. Neben mir steht Herr Schröbling. Herr Schröbling, Sie vermuten endlich herausgefunden zu haben, ob es eine soziale Unterschicht gibt. Ein Mysterium das von Medien und Politikern als nicht existent gilt. Was haben Sie herausgefunden?«Das Mysterium der Unterschicht13 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
»Ja, wir wissen ja alle, dass der gewöhnliche Bürger auf der Straße glaubt, dass es so etwas wie eine gesellschaftliche „Unterschicht“ gibt. Das sind dann sogenannte „Obdachlose“ oder wie sie allgemein bezeichnet werden: „Penner“. Nun wir haben herausgefunden, dass es diese Gesellschaftsschicht nicht gibt. Es gibt nur eine gesunde Mittelschicht und eine Oberschicht.«
»Äh…? Aber wäre die Voraussetzung für eine Mittelschicht nicht eine Ober- sowie Unterschicht?«
»Und, äh, wie haben Sie das hier nun bewiesen?«
Commission - Clean Getaway“Don’t you think we should get back to work, Isabella?” barked the little Dalmation, her tail wagging nervously behind her. “We have to clean this whole museum before they lock the doors.”Commission - Clean Getaway5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Isabella, sitting on her big, gray rump in the room full of delicate ancient Egyptian pottery, looked up from the museum program she was reading. “Oh sure, Krista,” she replied, “but these artifacts are really fascinating. For example, look at this vase over here.”
As she swung her head around to gesture toward a very frail-looking pot with her trunk, the long appendage brushed against another antique sculpture, a partial bust of Queen Nefertiti, and sent it tumbling toward the floor.
“Aaaaah!” shrieked Krista, racing as fast as her little legs would carry her. She caught the toppling bust on the tip of her little black nose, like a seal balancing a ball on its snout. Just as the sculpture started to tip to one side and resume its fall

Lucas and Ness enter the Arena. “Fight!” rings the announcer’s voice. Ness smiled at Lucas. “You actually came back to fight me again? Even after what happened last week?” he said. Lucas didn’t say anything. He just kept staring at Ness. Ness sighed and said “On with it then, I guess”. He charged Lucas. Right before he could get a good hit on him, Lucas yelled “PK fire!” just in the nick of time. Ness was knocked backwards, flaming. Lucas then rushed Ness and hit him twice, up into the air. Ness came back down and tried to kick Lucas, but Lucas grabbed his legs and threw him onto the ground. Infuriated, Ness roared at Lucas, and grabbed up a Super Hammer that was lying on the Arena floor. He charged. Lucas easily jumped over him and hit him in the back, sending him flying. Lucas rushed him and yelled “PK freeze” at his legs, and Ness’s movement was eas
Carter Vs. Ward“Did you really have to come with us?” Naomi rolled her eyes as Julian followed his older siblings into schoolCarter Vs. Ward11 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Yes I don't have school today! So I'm going to be bored!” Julian pouted
Everyone stared, It was overwhelming having all Carter's in one place, especially the school where they knew as THEIR territory. The Ward children all glared, all at once it seemed what did the Carter's have that they didn't? It had always been like this with the Ward's and the Carter's. Even Julian and Eliza couldn't stand each other and they were five. No one knew where the rivalry had come from, most people assumed it was probably that Payton loved Dillon.
But it went back farther then that, back to well Elementary school.
Ryker smiled, “Come on Naomi you can do it!” he stood at the top of the slide. He was eleven, and he was helping his litter sister Naomi who was eight to climb up the slide.
“Be careful!” a Ten year old Dillon said, worried
26 Commandments for Life in the ApocalypseCommandments for Life in the Apocalypse26 Commandments for Life in the Apocalypse19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Always be afraid. It keeps you moving
Buy your supplies BEFORE the apocalypse. I know it’s hard to know when it happens, so seriously buy them before hand
Carry a backpack or satchel. It REALLY does help hold your crap
Don’t PANIC! It only endangers the people trying to KILL you.
Eat when you can! Preferably when you find food. It means you don’t have to carry heavy cans around.
Fire = warmth. Unfortunately fire also = LIGHT. Things in the dark can see that you got it.
Guns AREN’T the best thing to have… avoid people with them.
Have a FAT friend. You just need to outrun HIM.
Inspire others to rebuild and lead society… just wait for someone to fix the Wi-Fi.
Just keep CALM and CARRY ON.
Keep your spirits up. It’s just the end of the world, NOT a funeral
Lennie. Find a guy with that name.
Maps are a must
A Day Of Laughter(A/N: This is just going to be a little story that was inspired by some of the things that happened to me recently. Enjoy!)A Day Of Laughter5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
I stood on the platform with my friend Amy, waiting for the train to come. I've waited on the platform for a whole eight minutes and it still hasn't come. I was starting to lose my patience. I looked at the indicator and it said that the train will be here in one minute. Great, one minute of waiting. I was losing my patience fast! Nothing could entertain me. Reading stories on my phone didn't work, so did Amy's sense of humour. I looked at Amy and she looked back at me. She sighed. "Don't worry Arctic, the train will be here soon, you're usually not this impatient but I know what it feels like to be bored," she said. I sighed and looked to the ground knowing that I will have to put up with it. Boredom was one of the things that I hated. Suddenly, I felt heat and wind as well as the sound of train wheels, that immediately pushed away my boredom because now I don't
