"Hey, Shinji!" The silver-haired senior called out his friend who was sleeping on the table. For once, he came to school, and what's more was that he was actually wearing the school uniform. The sleeping teenager raised his head up and stared at the boy who called him out. It was their break time and everyone was out to eat. "Can't you see I'm sleeping?" He answered in an annoyed tone. The teenager took out his beanie and wore it over his messy dark hair. "You're not supposed to sleep in class in the first place..." Akihiko sighed. His friend just gave him a glare and picked up his bento without a word.
Before he was able to push the classroom door open, a female red-head greeted him. One glare from her and he flinched, stopping on his tracks. "Where are you going?" The female asked him in a stern tone, her arms crossed on her chest. "To eat. Where else?" He answered, avoiding her eyes. The

Shinji started cleaning his nest while the girl was still asleep. He tried his best not to make a sound.
The flower vase fell to pieces.
Red orbs stared at him.
Look like Minako was startled by the breaking sound and woke up. Her face started getting red.
Oh no! Babygirl don't cry! Don't cry!! Papa knows not what to do!! Shinjiro burried his feet on the floor. His mouth froze. He didn't know what to say as he kept staring at the girl who was about to cry.
Oh! There you are Koro-chan!! Back from your morning walk. Hey no! Wait! Don't! Shit!
Koromaru gave Minako a big glomp and started licking her face. He always likes kids. Minako's eyes widen. Her lips started shaking.
This is not good ....
The apartment's ground shook a little. Smoke started coming out from Shinji's room. Oh Koro-chan,have I ever told you about how good you look in black?
It was fortunate that nothing was burnt after the explosion. Shinji q

He couldn't believe he had forgotten about her.
How? How was it even possible?
As his footsteps pounded on the cement sidewalk, as his breath came in ragged gasps, he only had one thought in his mind.
I have to see her.
Rounding the turn and entering the grounds of Gekkoukan High, he ignored the stares of all the students as he headed straight for the school, straight for the roof. He remembered the meeting place she had told him when he was in his coma. He remembered every one of her visits his consciousness had been so kind to be there for. Even if he had been unable to move his body, he was still able to have some form of alertness, and strangely, everything during that time except the visits from her were muffled, hazy, as if looking through a foggy window. The rest of the time, when his awareness did slip, his mind was filled with thoughts of her.
"We decided to make the roof our meeting place, after all of this is over," he remembered her saying quietly,
PersonaWe all wear a maskPersona3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
No matter how we shape or mold it
It stays the same way even with a slight change
For the mask is a part of us
Just as we are part of the mask
When we hide a hidden side
Deep within our hearts
It becomes a shadow
Something we try to deny
Something to forget
But it always comes back to haunt us
Trying to engulf us in its darkness
To show others what their really like
As they keep denying it gets stronger
Shifting and molding into something terrifying
The shadow becomes a beast
A monster of our dark side
Because we've denied it
For thinking it isn't a part of us
But it is a part of us
Like we are a part of it
The only way to combat it
Is to accept it as it is
For that shadow is you
You are the shadow
Your persona that is in your heart
Don't be afraid
Just face it
Show no fear
The shadow is you
You are the shadow
You wear the mask
Wearing the mark
On your heart
Once you accept it
It becomes a great ally
A powerful persona
Right by your side
Always there to hel
Ode IV.She was a sixty-eight-year-old lady with fluffy grey hair and an old-fashioned nightdress under her white johnny gown. My tutor was her neurologist and that afternoon he asked me to help him out filming some "cool signs". When you're a fourth-year medical student, you're all for cool signs.Ode IV.2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
My job was not complicated. It involved me holding the camera, pressing a button then keeping my hands steady for three minutes, while my tutor ran the sweet old lady through the neurological exam. I peeked above the camera and spied on the procedure. It was a running joke among my three other colleagues and I who shared the same tutor that he was a brooding Ian Somerhalder, twenty years down the line. Picture Ian Somerhalder carrying out a neurological examination. You'd peek over the camera, too.
My colleague assisted with the examination. It started off with inspection. She had abnormal posture in her left arm, held too close to her despite my tutor asking her to hold her arms out by her side, bu

We feel empowered with it

Minako:S-Senpai...? Good, then it was just a dream.
Shinjiro:What do you think I just said? Anyway, what happened?
Minakorpheus was calling out to me... I was being chased around by Shadows alone in Tartarus when they cornered me! Next thing I knew, I didn't even use my evoker, and Orpheus protected me anyway.
Shinjiro:Without an evoker? ....I see... Are you gonna be alright without me?

Shinjiro:Sigh...Fine, I'll stay here until you fall asleep. OK?

Please wake up...How do I put this into words, concrete sentences that convey all that is flowing through my mind at this one point in time? If only I could empty my heart onto this page and watch the concepts and emotions shape themselves into letters, words, phrases, anything to keep myself sane. Sometimes, I wonder what it would have been like if you had never left, if you had never taken this burden upon yourself alone. Would you still be here, by my side, to face everything with me? Would time have eventually forced us apart? I want to believe so badly that things would be better. I know you told me not to cry, that this was how it was supposed to be, but the tears won't go away, no matter how hard I try. Please, wake up. I don't want to be alone again.Please wake up...3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Didn't you feel like you were in a different time?"
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
10... 11... 12... The clock struck twelve.
The moment you stepped into the empty and placid dormitory, the world just shackled you into a maelstorm of unparalleled and enigmatic chain of events. No one would ever know its mendacious existence. Only you and a few chosen ones get to undertake such menial tasks in order to eradicate it fully which by no means will remain unappreciated by the public.
Things were never the same that very night.
It was the Dark Hour.
The hour was never for the fainthearted nor the weak-willed. It does take its toll on you but, everytime you step out of that God-forsaken tower of abyss, you have to praise the high heavens for even seeing the bright morning's sunlight the following day.
The last remnants of the memories of vagabond Shadows audaciously attempting to feast on anyone's very being still lingered in her thoughts.
But, the one last memory that would fo

"You mean you ain't never heard of the Gunslinger?"
The bar was almost dead at this time of night, and the question seemed to echo around the room - emphasising the sudden silence, rather than masking it.
"No, boy, I ain't."
Only a handful of stragglers remained, the dregs of the evening clearing the dregs of their whiskeys. The lights shone dimly, and everything moved lethargically in the warm Texas night.
"Well I'll be. I thought everyone 'round here knew the story of the 'slinger'," said one of the stragglers a tall, skinny man wearing a pale cowboy hat. A battered guitar rested on his knee.
"I'm new in town."
They sat at the bar - the musician and the newcomer. The guitarist resumed a lazy melody across the treble strings.
"Oh really?" he drawled, fingers sliding slowly over the fretboard. "And how are y'all finding our little patch of dirt?"
"Whiskey's expensive. Women all look like men," the newcomer replied. "Music's terrible," he added, eying up the musician suspiciously

But this ain't Al Qaeda, It's just home-grown thieves,
They've broken windows, and smashed down shop doors,
The police tried to stop them,
But just got ignored.
Wait a sec, what do we have here?
A man with a dustpan! - a nan without fear?
They've hit the streets, and teamed up on Twitter,
To clean up the roads, and sweep up the litter!
Such pride these folks have in our little nation,
That'll they'll take to the streets,
To tackle ruination,
That was spread by the thoughtless, mindless minority,
Who wish only to destroy their own, hard-working community.
This hasn't been no bloody protest,
This is just idiots, and I detest.
If it were up to me, I'd hang the lot,
Or shoot the scumbags on the spot.
But let's forget London's foul zeroes,
And focus on those epic heroes:
The police who patrol the streets by night,
With riot shields, holding back the fights.
Those noble cleaners of the streets,
Who've spent all today on weary feet.
And the final thought,

Enter Johnny Cage
"I am Shang Tsung. In the coming days, each of you will fight." Everyone was silent, hanging on to every word that came from the old man's mouth. "Some are here of their own volition others were brought here by chance." There was a slight sneer to his voice as his eyes bore into the assembled Kombatants. One such Kombatant, the movie star, Johnny Cage was also listening to Shang Tsung's speech. Although he tuned out about halfway to stare at the scantily clad women around him. When the old man paused, Johnny glanced at one such woman. She was blonde with a very serious face, and she was dressed in a very open leather vest, long pants and combat boots. Johnny decided to work his magic on her. He turned to face her and put on his sexy movie star smile, "Hey, beautiful Johnny Cage."

I was doing nothing but stumbling
around in the darkness.
I thought what I was doing
would help me cope with what happened,
and make things better in the end.
I was only fooling myself.
I refused to acknowledge that
I was doing more harm than good.
Living this condemned life of mine,
I didn't want anyone to follow in my footsteps.
There was nowhere I belonged.
that's what I kept telling myself,
Until I met you.
In this world full of darkness,
you helped me see the light.
I felt I could open up to you and learn to trust again.
And then that night arrived,
the fated full moon.
I thought it was the end for me.
The last thing I remember before my world faded to black
was your tear-streaked face
as you begged me to hold on.
Miraculously, I survived,
and one day,
after you had saved humanity from its demise,
I found myself running to you,
holding you in my arms as you faded away.
It was your sacrifice
that not only assured everyone's safety,
