Rainforest FinalOnce there was an old woman who lived in a rainforest.
She needed a walking stick.
And so she made one.
The walking stick was strong, and it gave the woman new strength and she found it easier to walk around the leafy, cluttered forest floor.
The old woman and her tribe were called the Penan people. They lived in the rainforest on the island of Borneo.
Living with these people, the walking stick learned about them and the way they lived in the forest. He listened to the old woman tell stories to the children:
The forest is our home, but it does not belong to us. The land belongs to everyone, and so we take what we need and move on
The walking stick loved his home with the Penan people, he loved the hot, steamy, wet rainforest and he loved the old woman.
But soon the old woman grew sick. Walking grew harder and harder. It was hard for her to get up in the mornings. And then one day, she didnt get up at all.
She was buried, and the Penan people moved on.
They left her w
GrossFrom a very young age I held heavy in my heart a deathly fear of anything which exited the body. Of course, there were the traditional exports which all children had listed in their heads in order of ascending grossness, including but not limited to: spit, snot, boogers, vomit, earwax, chewed food, eye boogers, poop, wee, farts, sometimes including toenails. So it was with utter disgust I witnessed my mother and her boyfriend kiss, what officially began as 'good-bye' kisses, progressed into 'hello' kisses, and soon became 'I-feel-like-kissing' kisses.Gross5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
By this point I should have come to realize that gross things can only lead to more gross things, as my mother's hateful acts resulted in a baby, who exhibited the very height of my fears; upon exiting the womb- the very first sign of her apparently incurable disease or nastiness- began vomiting and pooping and weeing and not even able to take proper care of her messes. As a result I now know 3 facts: anything that comes out of

Chapter 5 – Battle in Moonlight
He chuckled then threw back his head and called to the others. Rin cringed at the near ear-shattering sound. He began to move back into the forest with her in tow and immediately she began to struggle in his grip, fingernails clawing uselessly against the coarse fur on his muscular arm, her heels swinging wildly in the air. His grip on her suddenly tightened, choking off her breath. Black spots danced before her eyes as she gasped for air.
"Stop struggling, foolish human, or I'll rip open your throat right now," he growled in her ear. Something large and sharp pressed against the side of her throat and, eyes wide, she stilled her movements and he loosened his hold. He broke into a light jog, breaking a path through the overhanging branches of pine and cedar, her body bouncing in his arms as limply as that of a rag doll. The trees parted, revealing a small clearing. Sh

His voice had the effect on her of being suddenly dunked in ice cold water. With a jolt and a murmured but sincere apology she resumed grooming him only to find herself short one comb.
Sesshoumaru cleared his throat quietly. She followed his gaze to the floor. The heavily polished surface of the discarded object gleamed in the firelight, the nightscape of precious stones and ivory standing out brilliantly. She quickly snatched it up, then bowed deeply in apology.
"Gomen nasai, master," she uttered, keeping her head low so as to hide to blush of embarrassment from her cheeks.
"It would serve you well to pay more attention to your work."
A fearful shiver coursed up her spine and she forced herself upright, a bright smile on her face. "Oh! Careless me!" she tittered, the heel of one hand rapping lightly against the side of her head in a pantomime of self-punishment. "It's just like Jaken always says,"

Chapter 4 – Things Heard Late At Night
The next day was a whirlwind of activity that left her with little time to feel sad. It started off with Moe, Akiko, and Megumi waking her, seeing to her bath, and dressing her, their lively chatter filling her suite the whole time. Next, she broke fast with Jaken, who was clearly enjoying the perks of being a country lord. Watching him try to eat and bark orders at the servants at the same time was so amusing (especially when his makeshift beard began to slide down his chin) that even she found herself giggling.
Atsutane then gave her an extensive tour of the property, filling her in on its history and showing her all of its rooms and gardens, which were indeed some of the most beautiful she had ever seen. The rabbit motif was everywhere—the wall panels, statues in the garden, on the furniture. When she asked about it, Atsutane explained that the man who had built the manor had filled it with images of rabbits to please his wife, who adore

people thinks I'm crazy,
but for the wrong reason.
These people also exist on your side,
you play with them,
probably you know,
but even if you do a mistake
...or if you don't...
your family will support you
and your choice,
one way or another.
On this side,
no one will support me
or my choice,
This makes it even worst...
They will blame you
...and you know... I love you.

Chapter 3 -- Hime
"Rin, what do you think of this one?" Jaken held a bolt of cloth up for her to see. The deep purple silk was crisscrossed with hundreds of individually embroidered branches laden with pale yellow flowers. Normally she would have been enthralled with such a beautiful design, imagining how lovely she would look wearing it; however, today was nowhere near normal, and she was not in any sort of mood for shopping.
Discouraged, Jaken smoothed one twisted hand over the rich fabric and called to her again in an effort to catch her attention. She shot him the briefest of glances and murmured in ascent. Realizing that this was getting him nowhere, Jaken pointed hastily to several other bolts of silk and thrust a handful of coins into the shopkeeper's hand. Behind him, a human servant already bearing several boxes of goods on his back rushed to Jaken's side to grab the parcel of silks.

as I learned my lesson from you; I'm weak.
There a was a girl, challenging...
Not for a moment I hesitated, just a few steps
and I took her dress off.
She didn't get angry, but surprised...
and maybe a little sad.
You see I destroyed her magic in just a few seconds.
After a few minutes, dressed, he was staring at me.
She knew I was in love with a girl like her,
but not her.
Back to my four walls, alone in my bedroom,
I close my eyes, a deep breath
and I smell those nights,
alcohol, smoke and your perfume.
