He sat back within the shadows as he waited patiently, his posture was stiff and movement limited as he stayed near frozen in place.He tried to calm himself down but sadly to no avail, as his mind was like a minefield.He could feel his precious knowledge seeping out from within the craters of his brain as one explosion after the other happened. A domino effect as it were, each domino falling just seemed to make him even more on edge.
Beads of sweat pouring down him, gritted teeth accompanied with trembling arms. The sound of applause then echoing through him as the curtains were parted slowly allowing light to shine in. He saw before him a figure enter into the shadows and behind him were a mass of people, cheering and shouting.
This didn't help him...at all.
As the figure then walked off to the side he heard his name being called, he didn't want to move..rather he couldn't move as his body forebode it. He didn't want to do this any more, despite his efforts, his talent he just coul
The impacts of WarI awoke to my neighbor knocking at my door, making sure I was awake. I'm not even sure why he does, it's pointless. I groaned in reply , I just wanted to go back to sleep. I guess he took i my groan as an answer and walked away, I could tell by his footsteps getting fainter and fainter. I slid out of my bed(more like a roll matt and a few sheets) and the cold hit my bare skin. The freezing cold floor boards creaked under my weight. God I am starting to worry I fall through sooner or later. Then I made my way to the bathroom. 'I need a shave and my hair cut, desperately' I spoke aloud as I ran my hand through my long, black, greasy hair/ I heard my door open 'hello?'

ThunderstormThe lightning resonated off the walls of his hive. The owner himself was curled up under 3 separate blankets, shivering in fear, his four wheeled device sat abandoned a few feet away. Tavros peeked his head out from under the blankets when he heard his husktop ping but let out a shriek and shoved himself back into the cocoon he had built himself, horns ripping the fabric as a crash rang out, light filling his respite block once again. The device pinged again and Tavros debated against crawling the small distance to grab it or ignoring it in favour of hiding in his blankets. He decided on the former, pulling his body out from under the blankets, legs dragging behind him as he made his way over and grabbed the device. Tavros was almost back under the blankets when the thunder came again, making the poor troll freeze. He was trying desperately trying not to let the orange tinted tears slide down his cheek but to no avail. After a few moments he found the courage to move again, finalThunderstorm2 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Mes compagnons d'infortune ne durent jamais bien longtemps, ils viennent et partent, soit parce qu'ils sont trop jeunes, ou au contraire, trop âgés.
Et au final je marche seul. Encore et encore.
Mais ça va aller.
Je sais que des gens me soutiennent, même si nos routes sont différentes. Ils sont là pour moi, je suppose qu'on appelle cela avoir des amis.
Pourtant, qui peut prétendre connaître et comprendre ce que je ressens ? Qui peut prétendre comprendre quelqu'un ?
"Moi" seul connais la réponse, et pourtant elle ne me semble pas réelle.
Rien ne me semble réel.
Douter de tout c'est bien, mais ça ne me fait pas avancer. Pourtant il le faut.
Des gens comptent sur moi, je ne peux pas les décevoir.
Mais comment peuvent-ils se rendre compte de ce que je ressens ? Je ne peux en parler à personne, si ce n'est à moi-même.

A Moment in the Night SkyLast night I went outside and saw the sky. It was cold, though not bitter, and the clouds were cast over in shades of white and grey. The trees were dark against the clouds. One in particular stood out, the leaves had fallen and it was thin and blackened by the night. The tree in fact looked dried and dead. But just beyond it was a break in the clouds. Navy blue stood out in contrast with the clouds.A Moment in the Night Sky4 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
There were no stars, no shining elements to attract attention.
Or rather distract.
Blue, showing through the cold grey that blanketed the area like snow. I felt comforted. At home in the greyness because I knew there was a break in the clouds. I relished in it for a moment. I took a breath and felt the coolness run through me.
The clouds were not moving.
I wanted to be naked. To feel the chill on my skin. To touch the clouds, the wide space so high above me.
An area in the sky was charred a grey-black. It was far from where I stood and I knew it had already passed o
From the BalconyThe view from the balcony is hiding between the smog and buildings. Rising high from the ground are the school boy dormitories, caught up in a scholastic cycle. Horns beeping, cars passing, a sea of life half visible in the polluted air.From the Balcony4 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
The city is infected.
My horizon consists of man made, architectural madness. Twenty stories, thirty stories, ten stories, all aligning against the sun. It's cold and I see the breath rising out of my companion's mouth. The air is thicker. A rail is blocking us from going off the edge, but the smog is infiltrating; swirling around and blocking our view. Cement against cement. Apartments and dormitories, sunlight reflecting off of the clouded air.

Rachel sped down the driveway in her truck, going as fast as she could to the barn. It had been a peaceful day in town, shopping for some new tack. But then she had got a call, a call from a terrified Fera, screaming at her to get back to the barn. As she got nearer to the barn, she could see the flames spreading, as the gusts of wind made the fire dance and wave back and forth, back and forth. She grabbed the halters off of the seat next to her and jumped out of the truck. Fera was standing outside, seemingly in a trance, performed by the flames. “Fera! Go and hook the trailer up to my truck! And be quick about it!” Rachel shouted to her. Fera turned and nodded, then ran off to do as she asked.
Rachel then, untangling the mess of halters in her hand, ran into the smoke-filled barn. The fire had already spread to the stallion barn, and was nearing the mare barn. But she wanted to concentrate and get the horses out of the main barn first, since thats

Tails had wasted no time with the strange creature he and his friends met. As soon as the creature stopped it's movement in the forest, Tails brought it to, what was left of, his workshop, slowly escorting the beast to it. He was amazed that his workshop withstood the devastation of Chaos Mishap, but was still curious to see where the beast had originated from. Once inside the workshop, Tails led the creature to an assortment of gadgets, and strange machines. The creature kept spewing 'Rhydon' over and over again, as Tails began to search for a specific device. His search ended when he found a needle, attached to the needle was a small display screen. Tails had invented a DNA Identifier for the case that, if he ever had to, find a way to identify Sonic, should any clone or the like be made by Eggman. The creature raised a brow in confusion, as Tails slowly inserted the needle into the creature's arm. It didn't move, nor did it cry out in pai

Poison Everyone always talks about the economy, or politics, or the environment. They always seem to be offended, in some way, shape, or form. By something killing their ideas, anyways. Something, killing more, than just ideas. Ecosystems. Plants. Animals. Anything you can think of, and this "something" has damaged it, somehow. From plastic dolls, to the Ozone Layer. "Something" has been damaging our world, everything we hold dear. "Something" has been poisoning EVERYTHING. It has been poisoning for millennia, and no one has ever tried to stop it. We were all too blind too see it. How much it was poisoning us. How much it was poison, in and of itself.Poison5 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Thoughts Part 6 - Future AheadOne day, maybe in three years, I wanna visit Thailand. Dad's gonna retire in three years, so we will be living out in awesomeness. In Thailand, sex changes are common there. They are about $5000 there. That's the same price as a fancy ass TV! I've wanted a sex change my whole life. I hope these three years ago by quickly and nicely. Can't wait to travel the world with dad, move to like some city, maybe Chicago, or maybe down South or something. I told dad a apartment flat would be nice to live in the city. No shoveling any snow, great views, modern elegant style, lots of places. I always thought the city would be awesome to live in! While a lot of crime happens in the city it's probably not so different from the other town glued to the one I live in now. I'm in the safe, nice, area. Lots of trees, dogs, birds, squirrels, etc. If we ever move I know there will be a few things I'll always miss: The white cherry blossom trees. As well as those weird Asian trees.Thoughts Part 6 - Future Ahead5 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
One Day in Space...An adventurer was riding along one day in his brand new space ship.One Day in Space...5 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
It was really shiny and really expensive.
In his younger days, he did quite a lot of space travel.
On this one particular day, heading nowhere in particular,
he was in a particularly good mood.
With his auto-pilot on, he was free to move about the craft.
Within his tiny, but expensive ship, he gazed out of a tiny
port-hole, into the blackness, and noticed a tiny dot.
His eyebrow raised for a moment, and he ran down the corridor
to the main bridge, raised the shields, and with the hairs on the back
of his neck raised in anticipation, he flew in closer.
Soon he was hovering near the drifting object, and much to his
pleasant surprise, there was a pleasant-looking creature
staring back at his unpleasantly expensive space ship.
He grabbed his space gear, and quickly suited up.
He then grabbed the end of a long cable, and attached it securely
to a metal ring before quickly grabbing a large crate.

It's stupid. It's plain stupid.
But I can't help it.
I don't need a flashlight in my bedroom at night to be scared of those shadows lingering at the edge of my bed.
I know and they know they wouldn't dare bother me.
Out of my room it's a fair game.
They can attack.
They can grab my throat and suffocate me.
Choking me into a fearful sleep.
Leaving me in my fear alone.
I fear the shadows and the shapes that form at the corner as I walk around the corner of my hallways to use the restroom.
When I enter the restroom I sit with my back against the door And I swear I can hear their breathing.
Their soft little whispered lies, penetrating my mind.
I'll stand up and wash my face and tell my self what it really is. Lies. Of course!
Nothing to be frightened of.
But when I open the door I can hear their prideful laughs, drowning all thoughts of confidence in my fear.
I turn off the bathroom light and they show themselves.
Their demonic little selves. I'll gulp and hurriedly,

I always praised her after she ate. My dog only has three legs so she has trouble doing most things. I live at university and study in science and medicine. I’ve been trying to make my dog a robotic leg for 3 years now. And the closest I’ve got is two poles bolts together with a round piece of metal at the bottom for a foot. I’m still sketching out ideas though. I love my dog and it pains me to see her go through this much trouble every day.
I pulled the blankets up and flipped over. Lucy started snoring behind me. I was comforted. A slight smile reached my face as I fell asleep.
Lucy is a golden retriever so she is still a very active dog. I take her for walks every morning before my classes. On the weekends, we sometimes go to the park but we’ve been staying home more lately. She’
