Ivy's Icy Ice Water Bucket ChallengeSometimes, we think up some crazy ideas. And some of those crazy ideas turn out to help out people in need. This is the tale of one Cryomaniac's idea.Ivy's Icy Ice Water Bucket Challenge3 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
Ivy was in her room, watching some Lets Plays on a computer. She had an ice cream cone next to it.
Hmm... Castlevania 2 by the Game Grumps sounds like a good play to watch..." Ivy said, smiling and taking a bite of her ice cream.
As she clicked on the video, the traditional 'Game Grumps' introduction began, and afterwards, Arin said 'Welcome.'
As the video continued, the grumps called Simon's Quest the 'best game ever made', obviously in a sarcastic fashion, and after about a minute, the playthough began.
Ivy then noticed one of the Grumps' videos being labeled "Ice Water Bucket Challenge".
"Hello, what's this?" Ivy asked herself. "Ice Water Challenge? Sounds intriguing..."
She clicked on the video, and saw all five of the grumps fill up buckets of ice water in orange buckets. After Arin and Danny sarcastically talked about the ch
Your life in the Mansion-Ben DrownedYour walking in the wood for some apparent reason. I saw you and started spying for a while until you spotted Slender and you were running in my direction.

"Do you like video games" I ask. But Slender appears and you black out "really Slender" Then Slender picked you up and I followed him back to the mansion. When you wake up I am sitting there which made you Jump.
"Again, Do you like video games" I asked getting closer. You nodded and I dragged you down stairs and Slender saw you and got up from his seat and followed you and me. I was about to bring you into the game room but Slender stopped you. "What's wrong slender, she likes games so I am letting her play brawl with me" He shook his head and told all of Creepypasta's to the main room. We did intoductions and I was about to bring you back to the game room but I saw Jeff bring you upstairs. Which p
Planes: Evil BabyIf there was one thing Andy liked about being an uncle, was that when his nephew was under his care, it was ample time to mess with his brother and no retaliation that he could foresee.Planes: Evil Baby1 week ago in Short Stories More Like This
Of course watching Jett, was fun, he loved his nephew with all of his heart and loved to help out when he can. He took good care of him, made him laugh and smile.
But of course, Andy still had ulterior motives at times.
One being when Dusty and Ishani were both competing in a race, Dusty’s parents and his siblings as a result had the care of Jett while they were gone.
And so the plan began.
Jett was at a stage where he would mimic sounds and try to sound out words he heard. So Andy began showing him a sound from an old movie, that was terrifying in the dead of night.
A type of sound that was a mix of croaking and gasping for air. It took only a few hours when Andy was alone with the baby while Brody and Lynn had to take Olivia to a doctor’s appointment, to teach him it.

Billy--A Short StoryThe large brown dog sat quietly on the couch, wondering what his owner and the other person were talking about, as he sniffed the letter with all those little black markings. For the life of him, he knew each was different from the other, but could never pick out what it was.Billy--A Short Story1 week ago in Short Stories More Like This
He heard her shout. He heard his name too. “…Billy…” The yelling stopped, and the dog could no longer perceive what was being said, even with his superior hearing. There was something strange about the tone it was used in. Was it anger? Was it said in defense? It was different from how it was usually used; occasionally in a peculiar sense of nostalgia, or even sadness. It was as if the name was not directed at him at those times. Mainly it was a voice also used on the thing that lives in the cage at night. Unlike it, he gets the laundry room all to himself. Sometimes that darkness is unbearable though, and he was pretty sure the other thing had light, but he wasn’t sure, since he neve

Public Service Announcement“Stop talking to me like that…” I whispered under my breath. My mother dropped the stack of plates into the sink, the plastic ones clattering and the single glass one shattering into several pieces. She turned to me, smoke fuming from her ears. I could see her rage in my peripheral vision.Public Service Announcement10 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Excuse me, young lady?” she snapped. I could feel her parental sense of power boiling over onto the floor, spilling out farther and burning my feet.
“You heard me. Stop talking to me like that.” My mother took the envelope from the table, folding it around in her hands and fighting the urge to tear it to shreds and toss it in the trash.
“Talking to you like what? Realistically? With a sense of reason? Logically?” she argued. I sat calmly at the kitchen table, hands clasped in front of me, only peering up to stare the crunched envelope in her hand.
I had gotten so good at hiding the bills and reminders. My parents always thought I was going
Kouta: Part 4 [Early Frost]The winter had come early. And with it, a rapid decline in business. Most travelers avoided all but the main road, and merchants could not lead their carts on a path unpaved with stone, for they could easily get stuck in thick mud and snow slurry that form so often. As the days grew colder and colder, Kouta spent more time indoors, willing the hours to pass in his boredom. Even in his heavy winter clothes, he would still be cold in this kind of weather, so he waited, and waited, for time to pass. Simple card games, whittling of wood, throwing darts helped at times, but only long enough to decide on what to do next.Kouta: Part 4 [Early Frost]2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dani spent his eves outside though, tending to the snow that built up so quickly. The roof creaked loudly after a harsh snowfall, and the wooden walls would crack if not properly protected from the elements. While his wife and son did not share the sentiment, he loved winter. The cold made him feel alive, the tingling of his skin that awoke him, the chill of a deep breath in
Tickling and Torturing Toddler Part 1In the far future, much has changed, technology has improved and human nature has become more cocky, ant-social, materialistic, selfish and most of all, sadistic. So many things have changed, there was little to no plant-life or wild-life and where there was it was extremely dangerous so no one dared go there, people valued technology and money than the lives of their fellow human beings and people had become a lot more judgmental. But, despite this, one person remained kind-hearted, nature-loving, caring and generally very nice and selfless people. This person was a boy named Hexord "Hex" Thart. But even though this boy seemed to be the perfect saint, he had his quirks and a small dark side. Hex had an obsession, this involving the feet of females. He was almost always gawking at girls feet, and marveled at how their toes wiggled and how their soles scrunched. He dreamed and fantasized of getting to be the cause of all that wiggling of toes and scrunching of soles, in his fantasies, tTickling and Torturing Toddler Part 12 days ago in Short Stories More Like This

Walking through town, talking about anything that popped into their heads.
“You know… Our Anniversary is coming up…” Sarah mused during one walk, through Propwash, looking in the windows of a few of the shops.
Brody brought an arm around her as he smiled. “Yeah…Seventeen wonderful years…” He sighed in content remembering that day.
Sarah smiled leaning into her husband. “So glad I got you back…”
“Yeah...So...What would you like?”
“Oh..Nothing in particular…”
Which means, “I want something you’re not gonna like, but I want it anyway.” He thought chuckling, he knew his wife. “Oh yeah?” He noticed her looking in a shop window following her gaze.

The wind howls and throws snow across the street violently.
I walk behind you, sheltering you from the cold.
"Riley, where will we go now?" Your voice shakes as you speak, I can see your body shiver continuously.
"Don't worry" I try to reassure you that everything is fine, but you are still nervous.
The cold wind grows stronger, and I again try to give you my sweatshirt.
"I'm...f..fine" You can barely get the words out of your mouth.
I can't resist anymore, and throw the extra layer over your skinny frame.
"Keep it on Ryan. You'll need it"
Eventually, I resort to carrying him.
He's not much smaller than me, but I have to.
Where can we go?
There's no where left for us.

The local King, and "Rightful Owner" of the land on which they sat demanded taxes far higher than the Inn could afford, especially with fall rolling around. Traffic would slow to a halt along the road its windows looked upon, and with it, the promise of trade for goods. Her tails whipped in the dim light of the empty bar, casting furious shadows along the walls. The days had slowed, and business had all but died for this time of night. Travelers stopped coming for the drinks and food, where the majority of their income came from, and how she hated the downtime that the slow seasons brought.
"You know, I highly doubt you can win a staring contest against something with no eyes", Dani said, leaning over, his chin coming to rest softly on her shoulder. "Perhaps a good nights sleep will help you sort this all out."

Back HomeI carefully opened the car door, welcoming the crisp winter air. After vigorous nights of studying, I was finally finished with my first term of college. Leaving my comrades (if I may call them) invoked a sense of melancholy, but back then I thought seeing the people who raised you supersedes friendships. My belief was misinformed now reflecting upon it. Perhaps I was lowering myself to my instincts, but that did not matter.Back Home1 day ago in Short Stories More Like This
A piercing screech filled the stagnant cold, abruptly interrupting my thoughts. I knew that noise well: The neighbor's lanky cat. The Wellings were pleasant folk; they were the type you would want at a dinner party. They adopted their cat a few years back when Mr. Wellings came back with a kitten. Mr. Wellings claimed to have found the kitten. He has always had a soft-spot for innocuous things. They once asked for my family to take care of their cat while they went on a cruise. The cat and I had an unspoken hatred for each other. Needless to say, the Welling

He could spend hours at its shore, doing little more than drawing in the sand, taking in the sound of the surf. Even his father wasted countless hours fishing, catching only a relaxing breeze. But Dani knew his wife would be too busy tending to the Bar to hunt him down and put him to work. "Kouta, there are four things in life that are certain."
"And you're going to tell me about them no matter what I say right?", the boy asked, looking over from his spot in the sand.
Dani nodded, leaning back against the small tree he took shade under at the edge of the lake. "Of course, and they're very important. The first is that time will pass. No matter how hard you try, you will always watch the years go by."
Kouta sighed, pushing his finger into the sand, drawing long lines, trying his best to ignore the rant his father was on. "I never would'a guessed...."

They would bring honey, drinks, and textiles when the inn ran low. But Kouta cared nothing for these, only to see his friend.Kouta: Part 5 [Best Friends]2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
Waiting eagerly at one of the front windows, watching for all signs of their arrival, he couldn't help but wish they would arrive sooner. "Daaaaad, you said she was coming today!"
