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 2 – Broken Halves
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 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

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

not on the front,
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.

Kagome was sitting in her room, circled by many photographs, hand-made pictures and some other scraps of papers when Souta passed by. All would be well, if only Kagome wasn't in the same position she was two hours ago when he last saw her.
It seemed as if she was somewhere far of, her eyes unseeing to her surroundings, instead focused on some spot on the wall across from her. Souta, a bit worried entered her room and slowly approached her from behind.
"Nee-chan?" He called out and Kagome blinked, shaking her head before turning around and raising her head to look at her little brother.
"What is it Souta, do you need me?" She asked with a gentle tone, but Souta couldn't help not to notice the underlying sadness in her question, nor the deep pools of pain her eyes were.
"I just wanted to see if you're all right." He half whispered, half sighed. His eyes wandered down to the picture Kagome was ho

Gnarled, gargoyle-like trees guard the borderline between the depths of the forest and the farmlands of Hahn. The trees, once proud golden guardians of the forest, are now corrupted evil barriers. Legends of evil, stories with which to scare children- life is rejected from this place.
A woman stands, wavering, in the wake of the front line of trees. Alone for a while, she suddenly shudders violently and falls from the pale light of the moon to the dark of unprotected night. Far away, a wolf howls its yearning.
Ominous evil seems to creep in from the shadows, always just out of sight. This lush grand forest has been turned from the inside out into a barren place of death. Devilish creatures flock to its outskirts, only to be overcome by the aura around the place and turned from its doors to the dark corners of nightmares and intimate fears. For the
