Joker's SonI'd like to get a girl. She'd be the prettiest girl in the world to me, no matter what. I'd cuddle her, tell her she's the smartest girl, and remind her of her beauty every second I get. I only wish she'd fall out of the sky already, her angel wings torn off, so she could be with a foolish boy like myself. She'd not judge me of my insanity, my love, and my hand-me-down guns from my father who I can't seem to find. We'd run. Run from the cops, the people, the pointing fingers, and get away from society so that we can start anew. Our love for one another with heal the scars my father gave me as a child. My permanent smile will disappear and we can live in peace. Give me a woman who will accept me. Accept my past. Accept my love.

I couldnt hear anything over the loudness of my beating heart. The silence seemed to go on forever, so I sat there.
My hands shook. I decided to move, so I dug my fingernails in to the padded floor. I ripped the stitches. Slowly, I tore away a large piece of the floor, revealing the smelly matted clumps of cotton underneath. I sat up on my knees so I could get more leverage, and I scooted back with each tug. Soon I had a large enough piece to use as a blanket and a cloth.
My eyes had somewhat adjusted to the dimness of the room, but I could only see shadows. My fingers were bleeding. I could feel the syrupy blood under my broken fingernails. I slipped each finger one by one into my mouth, and then wiped them on the cloth.
Just when I was sure I
Jokers Bride chapter 10Joker walked down the long narrow hallway in to the cafeteria, escorted by two big, buff security men. Joker had a straight jacket that was required by the state jail to wear. He didnt mind, he told me often in the many other therapy sessions we had that it was snug and it was like giving himself a big hug that lasted a long time.Jokers Bride chapter 105 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
They reached the main door, and the other security guard pressed the button under his desk in his small windowed office next to the door. They all scooted in, and Joker took note of the button.
Here you go pussy. One of the guards pushed Joker in to the line for food, and Joker bumped in to the man in front of him.
The big bold man looked down at him, he had a scar across his whole face, and was at least six foot twelve. He stared down at Joker with a mongrel look.
Uhh hi . Joker said with a half smile, and he had trouble keeping his balance in his straight jacket.
The man just turned back around in line.

I couldnt help but look up for a second, just to see his face, his expression. The dark room was to poorly lit to tell what his face looked like, but I was sure it was a smile like always. The room was small, with padded, black walls, brown carpet, my leather armchair, one tiny, wooden coffee table in-between me and Joker, and then Joker on the black leather couch.

I pulled back my glove and sleeve to look at my watch, and corrected myself. It was the early hours of Christmas Day where I was. Howze leaned in next to me, looking to see what time it was for himself.
"Hey! It's Christmas and I'm standing guard on the gate! Alright!"
I grinned at his wry tone. "Howze, give me your ACOG for Christmas." He covered the optic on his rifle with his hand. "NO!" I slugged him on the shoulder "Aww, c'mon. You don't even know how to use that thing. And even if you did..." I gave a theatric pause. "Your POG ass couldn't hit anything anyway!"
He dropped his jaw in mock offense as I laughed. The ANA soldiers across the road watched the display, then smiled at the American's levity. I waved to them, and they nodded and waved back, then resumed their own conversation.

To either side, troopers like me, fidgeting, shifting, checking weapons and suits, doing everything they can to avoid thinking about the mission ahead.
It was just displacement activity. We were all anxious, nervous. Afraid. Thinking about it made it worse. The pre-op jitters is what they called it. Once our boots were on the dirt we'd be fine, reduced to our training.

It was an opening, or a barrier, depending on one's perspective. It led to a realm created at the heart of one's greatest desire. In the small village of Tachioka, people lived a quiet life. Rarely did one desire for adventure or riches. However, travellers from far and wide would ride for days to come to this same spot, and pass through the gate.
The realm on the other side was always a path of some sort. Successfully navigating this path would see you gain possesion of your desire. It was a test of will, that many never returned from. Presumed lost, dead, or wandering the realms in a mad haze, these unfamiliar travellers were quickly forgotten.

Another heart broken,
Another day survived,
Another hardship endured,
I compare myself to the world,
Find myself lacking,
Find myself broken,
Find myself hollow,
I seek a love,
One to carry my heart,
The same to understand me,
And to heal my wounds,
To fill the hollow,
To repair my heart,
To trust in my strength,
To have faith in me,
When I find her,
I will care for her,
I will protect her,
I will love her.

I tried to lift myself up but the wind wouldn't carry me like before. I fell from my flower bed and looked around. My wings felt light and my shoulders burned. I haven't experienced this sort of feeling before. I looked behind me and my once gossamer wings gleamed in the sunlight with sweat that shone so brightly all the humans in the world could have seen it. The sunlight streamed through them so brightly it hurt my eyes and my shoulders felt pain like never before. This was no normal summer heat. It felt as if my shoulders were attracting the sun's light and burning my shoulders like they were targets for throwing stones. I couldn't go to work like this but I needed to clock in and tell my superior officer that something was wrong and I needed to see a medical professional. Pulling myself to a standing position, I wiped the dirt off my legs and walked to our station for elderly or sick. Like a bus transport except much more humiliating. Mostly because it's for those

She only wanted happiness for everyone, not just the settling kind of happiness but true happiness that some may even cry over, yet everyone considered her a monster.

He merely killed some animals in a nearby forest for food, dont humans do that every day? I dont understand why he was killed. He never did anyone wrong and he never hurt a human in his life. Next thing you know Ill be hunted down and killed for knowing him...
Why is it humans must kill the unknown to them? Why is it that dragons are killed because they are evil when in reality they are often nicer than most humans... Is it the fear of not knowing what is next? What is before their very eyes? Is it because next to most creatures they seem so very fragile or small? They are fragile compared to the dragon but what isnt? What doesnt pale in comparison to a creature&
