The Love Song of Amalia SavageIn the fourth grade Amalia Savage asked me if I was a lesbian. The way she asked me, so straightforward and blunt, made me know I was supposed to answer no. It came out automatically, perhaps a bit too quickly, but she shrugged at my answer and left me by my spot at the window in the lunch hall.The Love Song of Amalia Savage7 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
A few minutes later, I tapped her on the shoulder and asked her what a lesbian was.
She rolled her eyes like I was very stupid for not knowing, and explained that it meant a girl who kisses other girls. I shook my head and returned to staring at the snowy outside.
I decided it was a trick question. That there was no right answer, but that I had handled myself well in spite of that. Besides, I wasn’t ready to be placed into one of Amalia Savage’s boxes. I’d be folded up and stirred around and hung up to dry until the label had sunk into me, until it had become a part of me.
Truth is, I had kissed Tiffany Waldorf just last year in the school bus, our winter coats swishing as we

The Clan of Dunbroch
It was the next day. The skies were clear and sunny. "Sunny skies?" Thought Rin. She opened the window porthole to look out side. What she saw was an amazing site! The land scape she saw in the distance was breath taking. She saw the rocky cliff sides and the ocean waters clashing up against the mighty rocks. As the ship continued to sail on. Rin thought she saw something among the rocks. She squinted her eyes to try to get a better look. From what she could tell was it looked like a silvery colored figure. But as the ship kept moving away from the cliff side the harder it was to make out what she saw.
Just then a knock came on her cabin door. She rushed over to open it, Norrick was standing there holding something in his arms.
"Ah good your up. I have something for you." He said as he handed Rin some clothing.
"Clothes? I need to change now?" Asked Rin looking a bit

As (y/n) rushed through the forest he slashed at every vampire that crossed his path, but his thoughts wondered to a certain dark haired female. She was in trouble, he could sense it. There were so many vampires in the area. More than they have ever encountered. Sure, they were no match for a vampire of his class and he knew that Mikasa was strong. In all the years he's been alive (Which is a fucking lot) he's never met a human more skilled at slaying vampires than she but even this would be too much. Her human body could only handle so much.
When he finally caught her scent there was a strong smell of blood. Her blood. At that moment he metally cursed himself for suggesting that they split up. "How could I be so stupid? I should have seen this coming damnit' Now because of his mistake his precious mortal was going to suffer.
Once he finally reached her he noticed all the vampires had been killed. However, Mikasa did not come out unscathed. She was laying on the ground covered in her o
Allies of the Ender Wars Prologe "Mayday! This is Ensign Jones! My shuttle craft is under attack by multiple Ender Fighters!" Donovan yelled into the coms. His shuttlecraft was spinning twoads Minecraaftia Prime. The energy weapons of the Ender Fighters cut the hull of his craft. 'I have to eject the time drive,' he thought, 'I won't be able to get back to 2040, though.' "USS Enderborn, if you are in the area withdraw. I am dropping my time drive," he said in the coms, hoping they were hearing what he said. But they were not. They were too busy with Ender Ships of their own. But the Endermen in the fighters heard everything. They stopped firing while Donovan ejected the drive. As soon as the drive left his craft, the Ender Fighters opened fire on the drive, causing it to expload and trap Donovan's shuttle in it.Allies of the Ender Wars Prologe 7 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

I Have Always Loved You. I was older now but there was youth in my every step. I was in my last year of college. Studying to become a nurse was a lot of work but it was all worth it. Walking down the streets of New York my head is always in the clouds. Waiting to cross the street I took notice of a figure. The light changed to the green walking person and as I walked I examined the figure closer. It was a woman with blonde hair.

You look so well groomed and made a life for yourself and I am here. Homeless and starving." Watching her sad smile my tore into four. "Oh, don't look at me like that. I c

"It doesn't make any sense..." said Vivi.
"I know. Why would he just go off the grid without telling anyone?" asked Lewis.
"I don't see why it's such a big deal," said Daell. "He always ends up coming back so I say we don't worry about it."
"But what if he doesn't come back, smart ass?" asked Jinny. "What then?"
"Then we can panic, but until that happens, or he tells us, then I say we leave it alone."
"I don't agree..." said Del. "What if the reason he's becoming sore is from him getting mugged?"
"If that were the case it'd be more than just his upper body on some days and lower body on the others. He'd have broken bones and he'd be in the hospita

“Yu-Yuki, I'm sorry! It's not funny, I promise!”
“You laughed at me though, Shuichi. And brats who don't know when to not laugh need to be punished.” Shuichi's eyes widened, the poor kid nearly panicking as he desperately looked for a way to escape.
“Yuki, no! I promise, I won't ever laugh at you again!”
“I'm sorry, but I have to make sure.” And so he reached out for Shuichi's body.
And tickled the brat.
He shrieked as he tried to fight Yuki off, soon falling over the sofa between the two bookcases only for Yuki to follow and keep tickling him. Tears were soon streaming down his cheeks as he involuntarily laughed, his attempts to get the writer off of him getting weaker and weaker by the second.

We were Never togetherTiffani laid in her bed, staring at the wall near her window. She hadn't gone to school again today, it was too much for her. She got up every morning to her alarm, got dressed, walked out to wait for the bus with her siblings, get them to cover for her later, then hid in the treehouse they had until her parents left for work. Then she'd use the spare key, get inside and run straight to her room. Her parents were never home before the kids got home, so they thought it was a normal thing for her to take a nap when she got home, but she did more than that. She laid in her bed for the entire day, refusing food from anyone, and refusing to get it herself. Hardly getting up to use the bathroom either. All she did do was shower, long showers, where she could think about everything. Relive the moments over and over again. The feeling of being so hated by everyone.

“What do you mean you’re sacking me?!”
Sam Flynn rubbed his eyes in weary irritation at the whining tone in (former CEO of ENCOM) Richard Mackey’s voice. He was very quickly beginning to remember why the only time he’d ever invested in the company had been his annual pranks.
Bureaucracy was a pain in the butt.
“Mr. Mackey,” Sam said with forced politeness, “My father always said that the system should be free. When he was CEO of this place, he never once charged a cent for the ENCOM OS. I believe that the company’s current handling would not meet up to my father’s standards. And in the interest of keeping my father’s dream alive, I intend to return Alan Bradley to the position of CEO of this company.”
“I’m the one who’s kept this company alive all these years,” Mackey snapped. “Giving away our technology for free isn

"That sounds great. What makes this possible?"
She smiled like a teenage girl. She is feeling foolish because of it but the doc is just smiling.
"You seem to like him."
"Kinda like. I never thought that I would be such an idiot when I'm in love."
"It's not stupid, it's kind of cute. When I first saw you, I would never dreamed of seeing you so happy!"
"But do I have to be so weird? Can't I just stay cool about having a boyfriend? All my friends are acting like this too when they see me, lost in my thoughts."
"Because they're your friends. When your acting like a 16 year old girl, they are going to act like 16 your old friends. They just think the same as you:"How cute!" And because nobody of you had a normal childhood your trying to catch up the time you never enjoyed."

Though My Soul May Set In Darkness - 20/20Upon waking, Spock’s internal chronometer informed him that it was 9.36 A.M. This was unusual, as he seemed to have overslept by 2.6 hours. What was even more unusual was the pleasantly warm bundle located atop his chest, and as Spock regained his mental faculties, his hand drifted across soft golden hair, and he remembered the night previous. A powerful wave of emotion surged in him as he recalled their joining, powerful enough, apparently, for Jim to stir, sleepy blue eyes fluttering open and confusion flowing across their link.Though My Soul May Set In Darkness - 20/2013 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Just a dream, Spock caught, and a feeling of misery so potent that his stomach clenched in response to it.
‘No, Jim,’ Spock murmured, gathering all the love he felt and pushing it across the bond. ‘It is not a dream.’
He bent his head at a rather awkward angle to kiss warm, sleep-soft lips, taking joy from Jim’s renewed ecstasy in his realisation that this was true. Jim moaned into his mouth, and Spock swiped his tongue acr

She turned and saw Arthur coming out of the door.
"Everything okay?" he asked.
"Yeah. I can relate." He joined her at staring at the moon.
She glanced over and noticed the worry in his eyes. "Everything... fine..."
"I doubt it. The moon's close to being full..."
"I know, but it still scares me... I wish there was a way for me to be able to turn on command rather than when the moon is full... or if I was cured..."
Del placed a hand on his shoulder. "I'm here... help... ask..."

Loke held my hand as we made our way to the Guild Hall. Once inside, we were about to sit down when Natsu pushed himself between and slung his arms around our shoulders. "You guys ready to have some fun today!?" Natsu said in his usual load tone. "What are you talking about Natsu?" Loke said slightly annoyed."We're going swimming!" My eyes widened. "D-Did you say swimming? W-With water?" I asked

Before I could protest the pink haired boy pulled me out of the guild and Loke, Gray, Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Erza and I headed to the pool. Ever since I was little I've had a small fear of water. Because of this fear, I never bothered to learn how to swim.
