Raphael screamed and screamed and screamed...
He screamed, thrashed and all Leonardo could do was hold on to him, try to protect him from hurting himself in his fit. With every scream, the younger arched painfully against him, every single muscle taut and seizing.
Leonardo just held him close, sobbing in both relief and fear when Raphael's body finally gave in. He caught him when he collapsed, cushioning his fall when they both dropped to the floor.
And yet, Raphael didn't - couldn't – stop screaming, grinding his throat raw until his voice, too, gave up, reduced to little more than grating wheezes.
Then, finally, thankfully, even those tampered off to silence, until Raphael just laid bonelessly in his older sibling's arms, awkwardly catching his breath, his entire body quaking with exhaustion.
Only then, Leonardo dared to open his eyes again, blinking against the blurry wetness in them.
Raphael's own eyes were open, half-lidded and staring blankly at nothing, eyes lost in the sh
A Glimpse At The Future Adam hated the uniforms. He always had. If it were up to him, there wouldn't be any. The recruits would be allowed to wear whatever they wanted, so long as they had a sword with them. But he knew he'd never be in charge of the Sky Army, so why bother?A Glimpse At The Future2 weeks ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He sighed and pulled off his uniform blazer, tossing it aside carelessly, leaving him in the dark gray uniform pants and a white tee shirt.
He hated being in the military... He was only here so he wouldn't have to go to school like his family wanted him to. It was odd though; it was almost fun to fight. He sort of liked the thrill of not knowing whether or not you would live or die. As a fifteen year old, average military trainee, it was the most fun he could get.
He hadn't really made any friends yet, even though he'd been in the Sky Army Base for over two months. Most people tended to write him off as either reckless or careless before they even knew his name. Adam didn't disagree
Scar TissueI don’t know what I hated more: myself, or the fact that my crying woke him up. It couldn’t be later than two in the morning, I had woken up from another nightmare and I found myself huddled in the same spot I always went to in times like these: the bathtub.Scar Tissue1 day ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a bad habit I got myself into since childhood, but the coldness of the tub gave me a comfort most things couldn’t. I had been good about keeping my pain hidden from the rest of the world, but by night it came crawling back to me in the form of dreams and flashes of guilt.
The tears would come before I could stop them and I always found myself in this tub. He never knew, and I never told him. What was the point? I’m a girl stuck in reverse who can’t seem to let go of yesterday and take in the joys of tomorrow. My whole life was like a damaged tape, repeating itself when it shouldn’t and having a hard time moving forward. I always could repress my sobs, and I wondered if I was louder than I

I couldn't believe it had been four years since I had been back to this place. Even with the apprehension that I was feeling I couldn't help but get nostalgic. Some would say that it was a small town, nothing special, but to me it was a place that I thought I would never see again. As I stood on the hill above my hometown, I recognized all the familiar sights from my childhood: the school I dreaded going to everyday; the arcade that would eat up my allowance; even the park we hung out in when we were too broke to do anything else. Each of them, even in their state of disrepair, brought back memories of time that I had lived in safety and ignorance.
Looking out over the town, I released the breath that I had been holding. This was going to be harder than I thought. Mia grabbed my hand reminding me that she was still there. I looked at her and could tell from the expression she held that she was worried for me. I sighed and gave her a nod to show that I was alright. She
A Big Price to Pay For Comfort The humming of Linda's car was incessant, as were all others, as they were all waiting to move on their way past the traffic light. Linda's ears rang with constant shouting (that went past the closed windows) and loud honks. Being stuck in standstill traffic is a fate worse than death itself.A Big Price to Pay For Comfort3 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
"My goodness," she said to herself, "If I have to spend another hour, I'll starve!" Linda honked her horn, and joined the others. But that was not before she found a small opening at a random hotel, and she quickly drove in. Recognizing the logo in the bright wall, she knew that she could finally reach her destination in time: a trendy club only she and her esteemed colleagues knew about. But alas, her tired body wouldn't allow it, even if she was awake. She couldn't make it to the club, regrettably. Still, as long as her body could function, she was golden.
Linda, dressed in almost business attire, struggled to keep herself up while approaching the front

I stepped out of the shower, exhausted. Aaron’s discovery of Yumi had been a complete shocker, and I had no idea what else could go wrong. On the one hand, I was very glad that I had someone else who I could rely on to help me look after Yumi…but at the same time, it made me realize just how easily exposed she was. It wouldn’t be long until my house mates returned, and when they did, I would have a lot more trouble convincing them to be quiet about it. I’d have to find her another place to stay. But how would I explain that to Yumi?
I went into my room and dried off. I felt relaxed and ready to turn in for the night. The sky was turning dark, and I was just so ready for some sleep. However, as I began to slip on my pajamas, I heard a noise from the den.
“Yumi, is that you?” I walked out of my room and hurried to the den. Yumi was sitting in front of the TV, her legs crossed and her tail draped across her lap. She was naked again, but that was because
Full Moon - A TransFun Serum Story“So… Still not a fan of Transfun?” Liz bounced a little on her heels as she looked over Beth’s shoulder. All Liz wanted was for her uptight roommate to loosen up for a change, and she felt that the best way to do that was from a little… change. Besides, their little house by the woods was technically Liz’s, so she figured Beth owed her a thing or two.Full Moon - A TransFun Serum Story1 week ago in Short Stories More Like This
Of course, Beth had no desire to be transformed, even if the blog she’d just read had led her to believe TransFun serums weren’t all bad. Hell, the girl had become a monkey and she still somehow found that to be enjoyable, so how bad could it be? At least, that’s what Liz no doubt wanted her to think. Beth rolled her eyes, drumming her fingers on her desk as she took another sip of her coffee.
“That’s got to be a yes, right?” Liz grinned, combing her fingers through her blue-dyed hair. “This is my favorite bl
