Nuna Brown SkinMy beauty is in my Nuna Brown skin. It is in the darkness of my eyes, darkened so that I will not be blinded by my sisters snow and ice. It is in my salmon-berry blood, blood of survivors and warriors. My beauty is in my Nuna Brown heart.Nuna Brown Skin7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do not tell me that beauty is blonde and blue eyed. Do not convince me of my ugliness, for I am more rare than any gem. More precious than any gold. Others want to be what I am. But they cannot. Do not make me ashamed of my rich heritage because you do not have one of your own.
My beauty is in my love of my man. In the stitches I sew, each stitch a symbol that wards off winters icy bite. It is in the sweat that rolls of an amber cheek, as I work to soften caribou skin so that I may mold it in to something that will make him proud.

Loki grabbed the soaked wash clothe, rubbing the soap over the soaked dripping wash cloth. He placed the soap onto the edge of the tube. He rubbed the soaped wash clothe over his pale skin, the hot steaming water falling on his head loosening his tense muscles. He inhales the warm steaming air, smelling the scent of soap in the air. He moved a step back, letting the hot steaming water wash down over his chest getting the soap off.
He turned the shower off, water dripping from the shower head. He reaches for a towel, grabbing it from the rail and pulled it around his waist. Stepping out of the shower, his raven black hair dripping with water. He looked himself in the mirror, seeing himself all clean without a smudge on him. He smiles slightly in satisfaction.

You were a fey, just like Maleficent, but unlike Maleficent your wings had never returned. You were deeply agonized at the thought of no longer being able to soar among the clouds, and just be absolutely free. You met Maleficent right after she had saved Diaval. You couldn't help, but relive that moment again...

You have seen her around the Moor before, but never really talked to her. You tried to straighten up, and did so. "My, my wings! Those humans

Heavy showers of brightly colored leaves fell from the trees as the wind snatched them from the branches.

However, there was something else to it, something undefinable and mysterious, that signaled great changes were about to happen.
