Waiting in Chinatown (a very short story)I’m sitting in a restaurant on the corner of two streets in Chinatown. I’m waiting for someone. She was supposed to meet me at 1:00 for lunch. That was half an hour ago. I’m starting to lose hope.Waiting in Chinatown (a very short story)4 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
I’m sipping on some green tea. It’s okay, although I've never been much of a tea drinker. The waitress walks over to me. Her English isn't very good, but I can make out that she’s losing patience with me. It’s understandable; I've been sitting here alone for half an hour and I haven’t ordered anything except tea. I order another cup, simply as a stalling tactic.
I watch people walk by. Not as many of them are Chinese as you’d think. Chinatown in London is different from others I've been to. The Chinatown here is almost all restaurants and shops; very few Chinese people actually live here. They’re spread out all across London. There are almost as many whites, blacks, and Asians here as there are Chinese people. I like it though; it ma
DockingHe'd thought the Mystique huge when he'd first seen her. That seemed foolish now. The space he now found himself in - Dock 5, he reminded himself; there were at least four more like this - was simply immense. Mighty leviathans the size of whole towns were dwarfed in the cavernous expanse, waiting patiently while docking instructions were relayed to navigation computers. It seemed strange to think that this looked larger than anything he'd ever seen. After all, the sky he'd looked at every day back home had been infinite. Somehow, though, confining the space within walls of metal, reinforced plascrete and crysteel just made it look bigger.Docking40 minutes ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Even the noise was more intense than he'd ever imagined was possible. Well, not noise as such - the vacuum of the dockspace carried no sound - but the vibrations of hundreds of tethered titans transmitted through the very structure of the station and added up to a shuddering growl that seemed to emanate from everywhere, like the murmured conversation

What would it feel...
If he lifted my chin?
That can never be real
It never happened
Trying to hard to be realistic.
Shivering blue eyes
In his flawless face
Expression as cold as ice
Yet it makes my heart race
The angle seemed right
For his jet black hair
His eyes underneath shining bright
Yet nothing seemed fair.
Dreams were made to be crushed
He's a rich boy
My brain needs to be flushed
While I'm my mother's toy.
Hours, Days, Weeks
Had passed by.
My eyes leaks
All I Can do is cry
That one last kiss
Made my heart beat
It was complete bliss
Shivers that my feet
I still cant stand still
Here I am acting brave
Crying... How could this be real?
All these thoughts as I watched your grave

"..." the two just sat silently for several moments watching the intensifying storm outside, very few workers or customers occupied the building right now and this made him slightly nervous. The occupants were a sleeping office worker, a black-haired child excitedly talking to his mother, and a girl who he went to school with since elementary. Bunnie if he remembered correctly but he couldn't be sure as he'd never asked her she looked him in the eyes and waved to him benevolently. His eyes met hers briefly.
Her gesture of warmth wasn't returned and his eyes quickly turned away from her, out of the corner of his eyes he saw her face fall sadly and she got up walking out of the restaurant.

The next time I awoke was when the sun smiled high in the sky. The shining covered my eyes which caused me to groan in pain. I hate the sun and how it burns my skin. I sat up with that stupid throbbing pain which came from my head. I hissed. I wished somebody stopped the pain but no, it was still there. I open my eyes, seeing that Hope was relaxing with a cup of tea and Annie.
Curse that stupid doll thing. She was the one that caused me this pain; she was the reason why I was like this! Her blond hair bounced with each footstep she made and her red dress somehow seemed a little lighter, like she’d changed into a summer’s dress or something. I blinked. What the Hell was this anyway? Some random prank? That’s what I thought it was for the first few minutes before I saw Hope gazed upon me. She had this amused look on her face that read ‘I told you so’.
Like Hell she did.
I placed a hand on my head and sighed, “Okay…”

Some say nothing is true
Who can trust anyone?
Is Heaven really divine?
Who has the right to be a god?
Who determines demons?
Everyone only truly caring about themselves
Their feelings, their dreams
Whether in their flesh, or another one's living corpse
I grow older and colder
As I am on the wrong side of Heaven
Cast aside by everyone
The only thing we share is
A destiny with Death
We are the Reaper's fruit
So, am I evil?
Am I holy?
Whose condemnation do I accept?
As I grow older, that answer becomes even more elusive
As the sickle closes the distance
Will eternal punishment or complete annihilation await my fall?
As I stand on the wrong side of Heaven

So as I'm reaching my hand out to you I'm hoping you'll grab it,
Because I'm tired of being alone in this corner where I sit.

Iowa arrived back in Norfolk with the three shiplings early in the morning. The destroyer Fredrick C.

Clover and Arleigh whimpered and hid behind Iowa but Ventis Secundis bravely held his ground, staring up at Davis with cold ice blue eyes. Davis chuckled. “It’s alright, I won’t hurt you.” He said. He turned to Iowa. “Neunzer is heavy with her own shiplings, she can care for them. You on the other hand have been ordered to the Pacific.” Iowa’s eyes widened. “What, for how long?” He asked.

Open up the door a crack,

Leave your burdens, leave your woes.
Leave the pressing weight.
Take what you have learnt with you,
Let it guide your choice.

Let it feed your voice.

The turning of the year.

All our hopes and fear.

Once December's through.

When the nurses wrapped her in mustard yellow silk, i saw the wounds on her thighs and arms and truly thought that she wouldn't live to be a year old.
I wrapped my palms around my face and felt the warm, salty tears of my eyes pour like a basin into my hands. I had given birth to a baby with a death sentence.
( The truth was; that the fire within her was burning her skin day by day, and it roared and consumed every ounce of her, leaving only ash in its trail. )
She lived to three, much to my own surprise, but to my own delight. When I look back to when she was born, I imagine her newborn eyes, shimmering and golden, the colors around her iris like rays of the s

The meal was being served in French buffet style; food was enough to feed three or four times the people who are dining, with the adults having red and white wine (''Can't I have some, Mama?'' ''No, 'Ponine, what kind of question is that?!''). The bright wax candles cast the silhouettes of everybody against the walls, their hair and shoulders specially elaborated. Eponine can't help but think of how ridiculous it is to have footmen and maids standing stiffly by the dining table, watching them in case their masters and mistresses needed help with anything. If they needed help, couldn't they have just call them over while the servants continue with their chores or anything that needed fulfilling?
Similar to most dining parties that were attended by people bustling with gossip and flavour, conversations and discussions were immediately launched with unmistakable enthusiasm. Sir Antony an

It was going to be a sunny and very hot day in Tokala Island with a maximum of 40C. The time was 10am. Badger, Izzie, Maxwell, Happy and Cool had just woken up and saw that Timida and Jungles weren't in Izzie's bed. The group of four checked to see if there was anyone else in the house. Not even Amber or Little Mountain was there either.
IZZIE: Why did they go?
BADGER: I'm not sure, but they'll be back.
Seconds later, there was a knock on the door and Badger walked to answer it. He opened the door and Amber was there with her three badger children. Badger let the family inside to escape the heat. He then closed the door but seconds later, more knocks on the door. Badger returned to the door and opened it again. Two female badgers were there. They were twin sisters. Happy and Cool started blushing.

Tapping our feet on the pedals

Everywhere you looked you would see men with long bunny like ears and a fluffy bunny tail. The colour’s for the bunny ears varied from man to man some men had either sported blue or black ears and tail while others sported either white or pink bunny ears and tail. No one knew why only the men seemed to be affected or why the colour’s for the bunny ears varied in such a way. And the most puzzling thing of all was that the doctors had never heard heard of this sickness before so they had no idea on what the cure could be.Honey Bunny Loving. version 1.

Following the dream wished to be made.
Taking chances away from the sight
Of glances that were made to evade.
Babbling lines stream across some plain,
Seeking a rhythm that aligns.
This single web from every side
leaves fallen, scattered, heaving, laid.
Gold of veins, as moth to flames, we
straddle, travel, seem bound.
When only that dream is captured, real,
We self, perhaps, are inclined.
